“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime … So, in essence, the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules, which the reason learns to accept and defend … from now on you should let yourself perceive whether the description is upheld by your reason or by your will.”

Chopping Wood

n

2 weeks ago I had no experience chopping wood. I hacked away at a wooden pole, made very little progress and tired myself out. Today I managed to take apart a days worth of burning wood in a few minutes. Actually I just came in from doing that and then I watched this video:

  1. It is a smart talk – much knowledge collected,  assimilated and delivered with passion.
  2. It and it’s content matter is lacking any direction – it is coming from emptiness and going into a bigger emptiness.
  3. It is completely wrong.

I will keep chopping wood. After that I will get to work at pulling deep-rooted weeds that are covering the grounds of our new house.
