To Learn (2)
Whenever the educated or the uneducated man or woman does not learn what is accepted by those who have learnt and also the society, the learnt is neither applauded nor accepted. The same is not expected every time he or she wants and desires to learn.
The non-acceptance of the learning happens in the moment and is known in the moment by those who have learnt what is expected to be learnt.
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 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 learning happens for understanding to happen that only moving of thoughts is in every moment and that every moment is only moving. Also, for wise understanding to happen that moving of thoughts in every moment is instinct and instinct cannot be learnt by man or his brain.
What he or she does not learn happens for understanding to happen that learning is not an actuality in a moment. What he or she does not learn happens for understanding to happen that learning in any moment is illusory and not real. What he or she does not learn happens for understanding to happen that learning is not present, but only moving of thoughts is present. Also, for understanding to happen that moving of thoughts in any moment is instinct.
The moving of thoughts happens for understanding to happen that, when the moving of thoughts is accepted as learning, it is believed that man and woman learn and can learn what he or she is expected to learn.
Wisdom reveals that learning is not done in the moment because life is only moving thoughts in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moving of thoughts and man or woman does not make the moving, which is instinct in the moment, happen. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept what man or woman learns and do not expect them to learn, because they understand that learning is not present, but only instinct is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man, woman and a child will learn what they are meant to learn, 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 the moving of thoughts is instinct in any moment and is manifested by the intelligence in life and is neither done by man nor by his brain. The enlightened have declared that life is a singular movement.

There is actuality which is an illusion. Both are manifested by the intelligence of life. There are no mistakes or errors in actuality, for what is eternal. There are mistakes or errors in actuality as illusions including the actuality, though they are illusory and not present in the moment.
Only that which is meant to happen happens, albeit illusory; what is not meant to happen does not happen. Such is the intelligence of life, whether we like it or not. Trust in the journey of life. It is a mystery.

German Translator‘s Note:
It seems that even more important than what a person learns or has learnt is what he or she does not learn or has not learnt. What others can and know, but you yourself don't, awakens envy and self-doubt. Learning is regarded as a human being's ability based on his own will, effort and disposition. But everything that man knows and can do arises in the timeless Now and thoughtless Here, albeit illusory. Thus the wisdom of this article shows that life is intelligent enough to evolve without real learning. Such an understanding reveals confidence and trust in man‘s true self, which is the intelligence in life.
