A human sees a movement in every aspect of daily life, including in sport and music. A human sees a small movement in every aspect of nature as well. The human mind thinks of the movement in daily life and in nature as small, large, slow or fast.
The small movement in daily life is seen in the moment and also thought of in the moment. The small movement seen and thought of in daily life is admired and appreciated if it is expected by humans.
The small movement in nature is seen in the moment and also thought of in the moment. The small movement seen and thought of in nature is admired and appreciated without any expectations by humans.
Wisdom reveals that every moment in life renews itself and in between a moment in the mind and in life is moment as well. This signifies that a moment in life and in the mind is eternal.
Brain scans reveal that decisions happen seven seconds before man decides. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences reveal that human decisions are made seconds before humans become aware of them.
In the study, participants could freely decide if they wanted to press a button with their right hand or left hand. The only condition was that they had to remember when they made the decision to use either their right hand or left hand.
Using FMRI, researchers scanned the brains of the participants to find out if they could predict which hand the participants would use before participants were consciously aware of the decision.
The results, by monitoring the micro patterns of activity in the front-polar cortex, were that the researchers could predict which hand the participant would choose seven seconds before the participant was aware of the decision.
Wisdom reveals that this is proof that man neither decides nor predicts nor predetermines. Wisdom reveals that even the movement of the hand to press the button happens and the brain does not make the movement happen in the moment.
Wisdom further reveals that the thought to do and the doing happen for understanding to happen that only moving is in every moment and that every moment is only moving. Also, for wise understanding to happen that moving in every moment is instinct and that instinct cannot be controlled by man or by his brain.
A small movement happens for understanding to happen that a small movement in any moment is illusory and not real. A small movement happens for understanding to happen that in that particular moment only a small movement, albeit illusory, can be present and not a large, slow or fast movement. A small, large, slow or fast movement happens for understanding to happen that a small, large, slow or fast movement is not present, but only eternal moving is present in any moment.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as a small movement, it is believed that man and woman do a small movement and there is small movement in nature as well.
Wisdom reveals that a small movement in the moment is not present because life is only moving in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moving and man or woman does not make the moving in the moment happen. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept humans and nature as they are, because they understand that a small movement in daily life, including in sport and music, is an illusion of a singular movement of life. The enlightened proclaim that what is meant to happen, albeit illusory, will happen in daily life or in nature.
Sri Ramana Maharishi has declared that what is meant to happen, albeit illusory, will happen. Sri Adi Shankaracharya has declared that man is not the doer in Nirvanashadakam. Kenopanishad verse (1.3) declares that word and mind cannot access the Absolute One. Bhagwat Gita chapter 3 verse 27 declares that man is not the doer.
The enlightened understand that the small, large, slow or fast moving in any moment in daily life, including in sport, in music and in nature, is manifested by the intelligence in life and is done neither by man nor by his brain. The enlightened have declared that life is a singular movement and man is not the doer.

Man thrives on competition and comparison in the performance of any intellectual or physical activity in which he or she engages. The intelligence of life has offered innumerable possibilities, from playing chess to mountaineering. Fame and reward, elation and disappointment, even despair, may be regular concomitants of these. This may also include ‘spiritual’ prowess. Such is the world of illusion in which man lives out the span of his life, whether he likes it or not.
On his journey, he or she may meet a wise man or wise woman who, for the sake of humanity, gently offers the light of wisdom. Wise understanding, which is the gift of life, is a world’s wonder. Those who come to share this understanding with the wise ones are a world’s wonder.
