Man wants to do and does too as well. Man wants to do and does the doing too. This is obvious to any man and woman with knowledge of what to do and how to do what he or she wants.
This knowledge convinces man and woman that they are doers, because knowledge makes man and woman believe that time required to do what he or she wants to do exists.
Knowledge also informs man and woman that what he or she wants to do is done in the moment. Knowledge further informs that he or she knows in the moment that it is done by them.
Wisdom, however, convinces man and woman that they are not doers. Scripture and science corroborate this wisdom. So what the wisdom is needs to be understood by man and woman with knowledge.
Wisdom informs that the moment in which man and woman want to do was in life much before man was in the moment, because knowledge informs that vegetation and animals were in the moment much before man and woman were in the moment.
Wisdom reveals that a moment is followed by the next moment and in between a moment and the next is moment as well. This signifies that moment is eternal in life.
Wisdom also reveals that the eternal moment is manifested by the intelligence in life and neither by man nor woman. Also, what is within the eternal moment is manifested in the moment by the intelligence in life and neither by man nor woman.
Wisdom further reveals that what is within any particular moment cannot be other than what is within a particular moment. Now knowledge informs that numerical time-duration is required for man and woman to do what he or she wants to do.
Knowledge informs man and woman that the smallest unit of numerical time- duration known to man and woman is one zepto second. One zepto second is one trillionth of a trillionth of a second.
Wisdom informs that even if a zepto second were the numerical time-duration within a moment, it is impossible to do anything in the moment even if man and woman want to.
Nevertheless, the doing that man and woman want to do happens in the moment in life. Also, the knowing happens in the moment that man and woman have done what they want to do in life.
Wisdom reveals that an illusory doer is manifested by the intelligence in life in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that illusory doing in the moment is manifested by the intelligence in life. Wisdom also reveals that illusory knowing of what to do in the moment is manifested by the intelligence in life.
Wisdom reveals that the illusory doing and illusory knowing of what to do is precisely manifested by the intelligence in life for the moment and cannot be other than what is in the particular moment.
The enlightened realise that neither man nor woman is a doer, though man and woman want to do and do too, albeit illusory, is present in life.

‘Give me a moment please.’ This is a common plea for freedom in a busy life that we all know as reality. In the knowledge of this reality, we exercise a level of control and action enabling us to think, to decide, to know, to do. Such is the gift of the intelligence of life. It is an environment with which man is utterly familiar in daily life and it is as it is meant to be. However, it is an illusion. One day, by grace, we may happen to meet an enlightened being who may gradually impart wise understanding, as revealed in this article that transforms your understanding and mine. Such is the reality of freedom for a seeker.
