Interesting Sun.......I feel as we journey through the chakras of awakening and the biology of the entire system becomes more refined we find ourselves residing for longer and longer periods in spirit as the body and mind move towards synthesis. we reside more naturally and closer to the source of thought.And of course dietry changes along the way that feel right for the nourishment of the body on the journey................................OM
Could it be that with a split consciousness e.g left / right brain hemispheres, that we are bound by paradoxes of what we think and feel, with both not necessarily working together.
Could it be that we are moving into a unified consciousness whereby thinking and feeling are one and the same....and our primary brain which is the gut, the actual brain in the head is secondary.
The microbiology of our stomach / gut precedes everything about us and so we are what is going on in our biology.. Gives new meaning to 'we are what we eat'.
''To Be or not to Be this is the Question''....................OM
It is very simple,if we are thinking ,and for most of us this is most of the time, we are in the mind.If we are in spirit there is no mind, no analysis.We are either in It or we are not .If we are fortunate we alternate between the two............OM

The Middle Way
An interesting paradox indeed Sun, and deserves openly discussing.
Just my thoughts of course, but I feel this is to assume falsely that a seeking is ever done only in the not accepting of one self as whole already. Or that seeking is only done under the mind, and not also with the heart, or something deep inside far beyond mind. Or that seeking needs to occur with attachment to any particular outcome other than to experience, the totality experience with whatever unfolds - all accepting. It was my experience at least, that what ever it was that "clicked" when I began to feel/perceive a more "spiritual reality", that it was quite profound and lacking of any attachment to its outcome.
Seeking also occurs in the absence of these, as often apparent here or elsewhere, who might not have the need to move from "mind" attachment, or a "no-mind" attachment. When one is content and in harmony either way, should it really matter if indifference is truly there - this, or that, not this and not that. Would this blog post exist, without first someone having a feeling, and seeking a shared experience to some degree by making a conscious decision to share it here? Or for anyone to share a comment. But could still be the case without absence of wholeness. Do people seek to make whole that which already is? Sure, but it's by no means all inclusive. What is all inclusive? Wholeness in and of itself.
In Zen Buddhism, notorious for these types of teachings, also knew of a difference between them, and still perform activities prior to intense meditations, where they are to recite certain questions (haiku-like, but sorry totally forget what they are called) to which there is no answer, in order to create a infinite seeking loop manifesting a certain state, other times are stricken with sticks to focus the mind so singularly ( that it becomes oblivous to thoughts influence), it produces a similar effect - at which time they are "ready" to enter an advanced zen meditation.
Liberation I feel is when it truly doesn't matter if one is seeking or is not seeking, rely on the mind, or run from the mind, rely of labels, or run from them.
A paradox is reconciled, in harmony as to no longer be a paradox, rather than an approach where for example in order to not feel sad when the sun isn't out, just don't ever go outside, or in order to see no separation in western and eastern philosophy, just consider the west or east an obstacle and deny it - the individual is and remains perpetually sad in the absence of sunlight or in a state of separation, they just wouldn't know it.
All is ONE, and All is the All else it would not be the All.
to what "objects of the mind" is this practiced? Everything! but more specifically, One another. because the other represents the conditioned qualities of "your mind" you have accepted. a fraction of the whole.
