To Learn (12)
“Does not learn to think”
Every educated or uneducated man and woman wishes, wants and desires to think in life. When they do not think what is accepted by others, men and women are advised - learn to think correctly.
Whatever the educated or the uneducated man or woman thinks in life, if the thinking is not accepted, it is neither applauded nor appreciated by others and also by the society. The same is not expected every time he or she wishes, wants and desires to think.
The non-acceptance of thinking happens in the moment and is known in the moment not only to him or her, but also to those who know what they are not thinking.
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 either 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 thinking happens for understanding to happen that only the moving of thoughts is in every moment. Also, for wise understanding to happen that the moving of thoughts in every moment is instinct and instinct cannot be controlled by man or his brain.
Does not think happens for understanding to happen that thinking is not an actuality in a moment. Does not think happens for understanding to happen that thinking in any moment is illusory and not real. Does not think happens for understanding to happen that thinking is not present, but only the moving of thoughts is present.
The moving of thoughts does not happen for understanding to happen that, when the moving of thoughts does not happen, it is believed that man and woman do not think correctly and have to learn to think.
Wisdom reveals that thinking does not happen in the moment. It is only the moving of thoughts that does not happen in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life does not manifest the moving of thoughts and man or woman does not make the moving of thoughts in the moment. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept the thinking of man or woman and do not expect them to think because they understand that thoughts, albeit illusory, constantly move and man and woman neither make thoughts nor make them move. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will think what he or she is meant to think, albeit illusory.
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 thinking is instinct in any moment and 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.

Man is certain of the existence of the twin phenomenon known as cause and effect in life. He or she of whatever age believes that one action or one thought brings about another. This happens or that happened because…
The wise, however, have declared in this article and elsewhere that life is a singular movement. Thus, cause and effect is an illusion. Man may come to understand this gradually and thereby trust life and realise that it is a mystery that neither he nor his brain can penetrate nor need to penetrate.
