To Write or Type (2)
“Does not write or type”
Whenever the educated or the uneducated man or woman does not write or type what is accepted, it is neither applauded nor appreciated. The same is not expected every time he or she wants to write or type.
The non-acceptance of the written or typed happens in the moment and is known in the moment by those who expect what is to be written or typed.
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 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 writing and typing 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.
What he or she does not write or type happens for understanding to happen that writing and typing is not an actuality in a moment. What he or she does not write or type happens for understanding to happen that writing and typing in any moment is illusory and not real. What he or she does not write or type happens for understanding to happen that writing or typing is not present, but only moving is present. Also, for understanding to happen that moving in any moment is instinct.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as writing or typing, it is believed that man and woman write or type and know what he or she is expected to write or type.
Wisdom reveals that neither writing nor typing 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 does not make the moving, which is instinct in the moment to happen. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept what man or woman write or type and do not expect them to write or type, because they understand that writing and typing is not present, but only instinct is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will write or type what he or she is meant to write or type, 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.

The two articles highlighting, for example, both the positive action ‘does write or type’ and the negative action ‘does not write or type’, reveal what is meant to happen, albeit illusory. Thus, in their understanding of this, the enlightened realise that there is no actuality in any moment of life and furthermore that life is a singular movement, devoid of the agency of man or his brain.

German Translator‘s Note:
If one waits for a letter or an email and does not receive it, the person wonders whether the other has forgotten him or her or whether the person has a reason not to write. In any case, such a situation is often associated with anxiety. Simply asking would be a possibility. But often the questioning turns into a reproach: “Why didn't you write?“ Dr. Shankar's article, which has been written spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably, like anything written or typed, reveals a deeper insight into an everyday situation.
