When thought comes to an end (please see description) by

“First of all, we must find out what we mean by a concept. What do we mean by the process of thinking? Because, after all, when we formulate a concept, let us say God, our formula or concept must be the result of our conditioning, must it not? If we believe in God, surely our belief is the result of our environment…..So we formulate a concept of God according to our training, according to our background, according to our idiosyncrasies, likes and dislikes, hopes and fears. Obviously then, as long as we do not understand the process of our own thinking , mere concepts of God have no value at all, have they? Because thought can project anything it likes. It can create and deny God. Each person can invent or destroy God according to his inclinations, pleasures, and pains. Therefore, as long as thought is active, formulating, inventing, that which is beyond time can never be discovered. God, or reality, is to be discovered only when thought comes to an end.

“To silence & solitude”

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

    I look at this very beautiful image and I find it very frightening that humans are so small and helpless compared to the vastness of this scene. How easy it would be to become lost, completely separated from other humans, to wander endlessly and then to die of loneliness (or exposure, as it’s called). Thought, hope, prayer, plans DO keep us alive, but recognition of futility can kill us.
    Who survives being lost in the wilderness? The mentally deficient, what we used to call retarded, often do. Those with Alzheimer’s die. They are already in panic due to their illness, so possibly their thinking just stops (which is death) while the mentally deficient simply wait for the aid that IS life as they know it. They look for food, wander the easy route (downhill) and expect nothing. When they are found or perhaps stumble upon a road, it just IS. Without “thoughts” they live in “reality”.
    A quote about THOUGHT: “Most important; Man is the only animal who knows that he will die. A dog does not know that he will die. I have never come across a dog who is unhappy.” (by: anand kapoor)

  • That truly is a wonderful example, on how without thoughts, or more so conditionings, one lives in reality. Thank you so very much for sharing it with me Jade!! And on THOUGHT, perhaps, Man is the only animal, who can observe his own thought processes, to identify how he brings a world into existence, including his own body, through his thoughts. Hence, the need to be ‘mindful’ of his thoughts. :)) Appreciate very much your thoughts again Jade!! :)

    Very wonderful colors and composition! Excellent image…and lots to ponder with that quote, Ramesh…thanks for making us think today…!

  • To think about your ‘thinking’ is more like it. :)) The thanks should go to J.K. :) One really has to reflect so very deeply on J.K’.s words. And there is so much peace and beauty found in that reflection. And my thanks goes to you my friend for this visit and comment!!
