To Learn (9)
“Does learn to sing”
Some men and women wish, want and desire to learn to sing. The learning to sing is done in the moment and it is known in the moment only after learning to sing is actually done or is being done.
In whatever manner men and women learn to sing, if it is accepted, it is applauded and appreciated not only by them, but also by the society. The same learning is expected every time whenever he or she wishes, wants and desires to learn to sing.
The acceptance, applause, appreciation and expectation also happen in the moment and is known in the moment not only to him or her, but also to those who see him or her learn to sing.
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 known and the knowing 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 instinct cannot be controlled by man or his brain.
Learning to sing happens for understanding to happen that neither learning nor singing is an actuality in a moment. Learning to sing happens for understanding to happen that learning and singing in any moment is illusory and not real. Learning to sing happens for understanding to happen that neither learning nor singing is present in the moment, but only moving is present.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as learning to sing, it is believed that man and woman can learn to sing the way he or she is expected to sing.
Wisdom reveals that neither learning nor singing is done in the moment, because life is only moving in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moving and man or woman do not make the moving in the moment happen, because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept the way man or woman sing and do not expect them to sing in any particular way, because they understand that neither learning nor singing is present, but only moving is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will sing the way he or she is meant to sing, 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 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.

Learning is regarded as one of the most important of human activities, whilst singing is one of the most popular. The two may be brought together in pursuit of excellence and reputation. Man believes that he or she can and does learn and can and does sing, and may thus attract huge audiences in performances. As long as man continues to believe that this is so, so be it, although it is illusory. Wisdom reveals, however, that neither learning nor singing are present in the moment. Understanding this gifts freedom from the effort of performing.
