Knowledge informs every man and woman to expect what he or she wants. Knowledge reveals that the want of every man and woman is varied. Knowledge informs that the want could be an object or how the other should behave.
Knowledge informs that the behaviour wanted of the other is what he or she expects. Knowledge compels man and woman to insist on or demand the behaviour that man or woman wants.
Knowledge reveals that the want of a particular behaviour from the other is either given or not given. Knowledge informs that behaviour depends upon what is spoken or done.
Knowledge informs that when the behaviour of what is spoken or done that is wanted from the other happens, harmony prevails. If not, the consequence is anger and its consequence.
Every man and woman has knowledge of his or her particular wants, which is not free from the shadows of emotions. The shadows of emotions are either wanted or not wanted.
Wisdom regarding ‘want’, however, is free of the shadows of emotions and consequences that are not wanted. What is the wisdom regarding ‘want’, is the question?
Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is always present. Wisdom reveals that a moment, which is always present in life, is precise. Wisdom reveals that the content, which is within any moment, is precise as well.
Wisdom reveals that the content, which is within any moment, cannot be other than the content which is in the moment. Wisdom reveals that the timing of the content is always precise as well.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content within the moment is neither late nor early. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life, which is behaviour, is not governed by what is said or done.
Wisdom in life reveals that neither the moment nor the content of the moment has a cause. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment, which is behaviour, cannot be any other behaviour than the behaviour in the moment.
Wisdom in life reveals that man and woman do not make any moment in life. Wisdom reveals that the moment in life was in life much before man and woman were in life.
Wisdom reveals that man and woman can expect the behaviour they want only if they were able to make any moment in life. Knowledge of behaviour deceives man and woman that they can expect the behaviour they want.
Knowledge takes behaviour for granted and, therefore, expects the behaviour they want. Wisdom understands that what is said or done by the other in any moment, which is behaviour, is a gift by the intelligence in life to man and woman to understand who he or she really is.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that man and woman will realise their true self when they realise that man and woman are not the doers.

There is no subscription for liberation that can be acquired at any price in the market place of life. The market place itself, albeit illusory, is one of man’s favourite habitats where he or she can bargain and choose. Satisfaction may follow when there has been a successful transaction. A reverse will certainly be hard to bear until…..until, that is, he happens to meet a wise man in his path. A moment of grace. When man’s conviction that he is the doer is finally undone and his trust in the intelligence of life is steady, he will find himself as he really is.
