This is Water

"Anything that is not within the limits of my waking life between birth and death i regard as a distraction from my now.   I can get no reasons or purposes from it.  There is quite enough here for me to make of what i can.  And there  is no "darkness of life" here for me ... rather the opposite ... it is all my life.  For me the darkness looms from some un-sensed pie-in-the-sky other world that must first  be imagined and then intuited and of whose experiences i cannot share directly with others.  But then, of course, that is just me, and my personal choices in my life."
-- Bozo Faust, 2013
... and to dramatize my stance here watch the movie

......................................................................................


Here is another dramatization of my stance.  I won't spoil this movie for you, please watch it to the end yourself, but afterwards please do focus on the actual order that was left on the stage when the performance was over ... ask yourself:  is that what mattered to the performance?

A choice not to use the tools & methods (published & private) to achieve any results & then standing in your stance as above is congruent with the tag.


Seth says
A state of ignorance exists when we don't *know* anything about a subject.  Honestly, i do not *know* anything about myself before i was born or after i die.  Oh sure i can imagine all sorts of things ... i can even imagine them so often and intensely that i believe them ... but then to say "i know those things" would be, for me, a lie.   Primarily because others can, and have, imagined quite different things ... that is something that i do know.  No, I don't choose not to know, rather i choose to admit that i do not know. 

But the point of saying what i said in the body of this item is to say that it does not matter to my life here, what is over there, beyond its border.    Focusing on that would be a distraction from the Now of my life.   That was actually quite a little Zen Satorie when i first grocked it ... its hard to duplicate that feeling ... but i can if i focus ... the movie helped ... that's why i linked it to this item.

So far, the tag "choice to ignorance" does not connect this item to anything whatsoever.
