Awakening of Intelligence in practicice.

Thank you, Monsieur Bergson. Powerful observation indeed.

To really be in the moment, to taste and touch life in its ever present space and time there must not be a veil in between the observer and the observed. Remove the shroud from your perception, your senses and be in the presence of consciousness itself, become the observed. The only way to achieve this state of consciousness is through absolute silence of the mind, through no agitation in the mental state where consciousness becomes blurry from affected external vexations and conditioning. It is like the mirror image of the pond when a pebble in thrown into the water it causes ripples and distorting the mirror image of the surrounding scene. For so long as the pond is undisturbed the reflection of the surrounding area appears upon the surface of the water as it is, but when the water is disturbed the image becomes distorted.
How to remain in constant  state of complete awareness is the mystery that most spiritually awakened people strive to master. Observing daily life without distortion of the mind is a tough act to follow but it is far from impossible as the ancient adepts, Rishis and Yogis, have proven in their lifetime of faith and devotion to practice and mastery of working of the mind. Stepping out of the box of conditioning is no easy feat but through understanding and diligent practice we can find our own way to the truth. Most teachings have disciplines leading to right understanding in the journey of self discovery and it takes some doing and often intense study for the mind to be subdued and brought to be silent. 
One of the best teachings of the Vajrayana Buddhism or the Tibetan form of Buddhism is the discourse given on Nagarjuna's Text by Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche which is available on You Tube. In this lecture given in Berkeley, California, the essence of the Buddha's teachings is spelled out for lay practitioners and Monks alike, it is well delivered and covers a great amount of information leading to the attainment of Bodhicita -
    Bodhicitta is a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment motivated by great compassion for all sentient beings, accompanied by a falling away of the attachment to the illusion of an inherently existing self.
    I have shared as much as possible whatever knowledge that i have had the privilege of coming across in my own personal pursuit of self discovery ever since I understood what it meant. As my own personal knowledge is never complete and is more often then not are from sources not of my own original thoughts words or deeds, i employ quotes and teachings of others that deem most effective to follow or best convey what i have in mind. It is my hope that by doing so anyone interested to further their study in these matters have an idea of where or what to look at and in doing so might even venture to discover more sources for themselves.
    The Internet is a God given miracle of miracles to man. For those who live in this dimension, this day and age, this matrix that we call the End of Time, the Kali Yuga, the Dharma Ending Age, al-Khiyamah; have to a certain degree have an understanding of the basic truth that governs our human consciousness, that we are not helpless beings waiting to be taken to the slaughter  house at the end of our days. Collective we have the ability to harness the knowledge and the wisdom afforded us from the ancient till this day of the computerized existence. To die in ignorance and to be reborn in Hell or some heavy karmic realm of existence is not and option. Mankind for whatever it is worth and whatever fault we may have deserves better ending than just subjected to wars and decadence; we have Consciousness, of Love and Compassion and we have Wisdom, if only we are awakened to them.
    "Suffering is the utter ability to see the immense potential quality of a human being and yet never having the possibility to put it into practice."
    ...Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche.
