To Talk (1)
Every educated or uneducated man and woman wishes, wants and desires to talk in life. What they talk in life, the talking is done in the moment and the content of the talk is known in the moment only after the talk is actually done or is being done.
Whatever the educated or the uneducated man or woman talks in life, if it is accepted, it is applauded and appreciated not only by them, but also by the society. The same is expected every time whenever he or she wishes, wants and desires to talk.
The acceptance, applause, appreciation and the expectation also happen in the moment and is known in the moment not only to him or her, but also to those who hear the talk.
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 the thought to talk and the talking 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.
The talk and talking happen for understanding to happen that talking is not an actuality in a moment. The talk and talking happen for understanding to happen that talking in any moment is illusory and not real. The talk and talking happen for understanding to happen that talking is not present, but only moving is present.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as talking, it is believed that man and woman talk and can talk what he or she is expected to do.
Wisdom reveals that talking is not 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 does not make the moving in the moment happen, because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept what man or woman talks and do not expect them to talk, because they understand that talking is not present, but only moving is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will talk what he or she is meant to talk, 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 neither done by man nor by his brain. The enlightened have declared that life is a singular movement.

As man grows and matures from childhood into adulthood, so may confidence in his own appearance and intelligence grow. He or she becomes convinced of his own identity and grounded in his or her own beliefs. On his journey, the intelligence of life will provide him with what is meant for him. By grace, he may meet an enlightened man whose deep understanding gradually transforms his life. Such gratitude.

German Translator‘s Note:
How has talking actually evolved in humans? The parents believe that they have taught the children how to talk. But how could the first talking person who could not have had any talking parents have learned to talk? Talking, whether modest or arrogant, happens to man as an illusion of sounds. Man or woman, girl or boy do not talk of their own free will and do not decide what is said. If you really had control over talking, you would never make any slip of the tongue. There are many hints that life gives that believing to be the doer, the speaker and the thinker is just a belief but not the truth. Dr. Shankar's article invites deep reflection.
