“Mind”, “Beyond the Mind” and “Innovation”

The mind is nothing but a collection of “Objects” and “Language”. Objects include everything that make up this world, including humans. Language is used to label or define the objects. Objects and their labels and their relation with each other forms “Knowledge”.

My friend is also an object and I have labelled him with his name and related him to me with some language. Unfortunately and unknowingly “I” (Myself) am also a part of my mind, and I have been labelled with a name and related to other objects (including other humans) using language. This relation is a part of my knowledge. So, we come to this conclusion that, objects are real and present in the world outside but the relations are nothing more than fiction which we take is as the truth and these fictional relationships are a cause of ultimate misery of human beings. We take these fictional, language based relationships to be the truth. This is a different topic but it was required in order to explain the mind. Since the objects all over the world are same, the relationships are same, no matter what the language is used, the mind of all the people across the world is the same. It is a collective mind.

If I say the word “Television”, the language being a part of my mind, immediately brings the picture of television in front of me. If I show the picture of a television without using any label or language, the world “television” come to my mind.  This we all know.

Now if I say the word “ksjuojanoihfdaoidh”, since this is a “label” you have not known, the mind is not able to come up with a picture of the said word. Since this is not a code or any kind of encryption, even if you browse through the dictionaries of all the languages of this world, you will not be able to come up with the “object” that is related to the said word. Had you been using a computer for searching, it would have returned “Not found”, it means that it is not a part of its database. If you are searching using Google, it would suggest the nearest known “label” but will not be able to search the picture related to the said word. Your mind will not be able to come up with something related to the given word. The mind will come to a stand still.

But at the same time, since the given word means absolutely nothing – or the given world cannot be used to label any available object, it gives you utter freedom to CREATE ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING ABSTRACT  WITH THIS GIVEN WORD. This  is innovation. This is a process of going beyond the mind. This also proves that there is a space that is beyond the human mind, and this is the space of creativity. This is the space we we need to be in order to continuously innovate.

What I did here is – I created an abstract goal – a goal that cannot be understood by or solved by the human mind. In the process, innovation happened.

This capacity of coming up with absolutely anything abstract is a UNIQUE ABILITY OF HUMAN BEINGS. Innovation is a capability of humans beings and not of computers, no matter how powerful or artificially intelligent the machine is.

Creativity

Creativity happens when one aligns himself or herself to the supreme intelligence, the only intelligence. If you look around, you will see that each and every human is utterly unique. All humans are different. This shows that nature is the greatest creator, it does not repeat.

If you want to be creative, you have to align yourself with the supreme intelligence. You have to push yourself beyond the mind. Then you do not have to be creative, creativity will happen.

In Search of the “My”

This is a continuation of my post “Are you really the person in the mirror?” 

I was puzzled yesterday when I realized that the body was not mine. It functions automatically without my interference. I realized that it is just like an intelligent Instrument given to “me” by existence by Creation, because the functioning of the body is a part of creation or existence. Creation created it as was gifted to me when I was born and I will carry it with me till my death. After that it will be returned to existence – Since I am a Hindu, the body will be cremated and all will be converted to ashes and will go into the earth. It will return to the source. It was given to “me” and then after some time, it will be taken back. It has to return to the source. This proves that the body which I call mine is NOT MINE. But I foolishly keep calling it “MY BODY”. It is never good to call, something that belongs to the other, as “MINE”. The body is a gift on returnable basis. It belongs to someone else and it will be taken back. You do not know when it will be taken back. 

The Next question is who is body given to? To whom is the body given to on a returnable basis? Who will have the body for may be 70-80 years? Who mistakenly calls the body is “His” or “hers”. 

A baby in the womb starts growing from a cell. Initially it is just a cell. It keeps growing and growing on it own. It takes shape. Hands, feet, body, heart, brain, veins, bones form on its own, inside the womb. What is making it, what is giving it a shape? What intelligence is supervising it when the baby in the womb is under development – all these things are beyond the control of Humans and they still happen. 

The baby in the womb is doing nothing for the development of his body and other parts. I am sure we all understand this. Then who is doing it? The baby is not, the mother is not,the father is not. But the mother calls the baby as “My Baby”. She did not create the child, she did not create the body of the child, she did not take part is the development of the body of the child while it was in the womb. She only provided the womb. The womb was also not created by the mother. No one in the world can create a womb. The womb definitely does not belong to the mother. 

So, the baby did not create his or her own body while he was in the womb, it did not give the body a particular shape, did not create the heart, the brain, the lungs, the liver, the veins – The baby does not help the body grow with time after he is she is born, does not make the heart beat or the blood flow – but the baby, when he or she grows up, owns the body. He or she calls the body as his or her. 

This is a mistake. Why do you think we are making a mistake? Why do we call it mine? This mistake has to be very clearly understood. This will clear all our hurdles and make us free of sorrow and suffering. 

When A child is born, it is pure. It is just like a flower. It is like a fresh leaf, bright green. It is just like dew drops on the leaf early in the morning. They are very close to God. 

A one month born child is also capable to look around. He is able to move his hands and legs. He cries and makes some noise.He does not have any knowledge, he does not know how to act, what to say, whether to keep quite or not. He does not have any objective like we have. His actions are pure. So a child does not mentally suffer like we do. A child does not have problems like we have. He is pure consciousness. 

What can be so pure? What is there is a flower that is not in a grown up human being? It is consciousness.Consciousness is God. It is the Purest. 

Consciousness is pure space. It is a “no-thing”. Consciousness does not have a sense of “I” or “My”. Therefore the child, is Pure consciousness. Consciousness is the space where the supreme Intelligence works. Consciousness is the space where the supreme Intelligence or Creation or Existence Manifests. Whatever happens, all forms, they all happen in the consciousness. 

Consciousness is polluted when the mind starts forming. It is the only place where information that is taken in through the senses, gather and form our memory. The mind becomes a part of Consciousness, but we are only aware of the mind and not consciousness. 

The child, when he is born is a “no-thing”. It is a part of the whole. It is just like a flower. It does not know that he or she has a body. The body is Just there like anything else – he or she is pure consciousness. 

Since the child is pure consciousness and pure consciousness is a “no-thing”, in order to be something, the child develops an “I”. The child starts to develop various Identities with time. This happens automatically as the consciousness gets filled up with information form outside, through the senses. 

Please read my post – “Ego – The Greatest Obstacle to Creativity and Innovation” you will understand it completely.  

These Identities that from in the consciousness of the child, are all imaginary. The knowledge that he has gained, forms his mind. The moment the mind forms, the person is split. He is split between the mind and the consciousness. The consciousness is manifesting, it is continuously creating, it has its own will, which we call the will of God – but the knowledge, the logic the mind of the person thinks otherwise. The mind generally goes against the will of God or the supreme intelligence, which leads to enormous amount of mental tension.  

All these Identities form the mind of the person. The Identities gives the person a sense of “I”, but it is all imagination. And all our lives, we keep strengthening our “I”s. All our actions are directed towards strengthening our “I”s. We do not allow the consciousness to work, because it is all filled up with knowledge, and we try to solve all our problems with logic and knowledge and fail to understand that there is also a world that is beyond logic.  

Because the “I” forms, in order to strengthen that “I”, we try to possess everything and label it as “My”. The same logic is applicable to understand why in spite of several proofs, that the body is not in our control, we still call it “our” body, otherwise, what will we be? So, first thing that we own in this world is our “Body” and this owning is nothing more than an Imagination in order to strengthen the “I”. 

In reality there is no “I”. It is of the Ego. The ego is an Imaginary identity created with knowledge, otherwise who will we be? We are pure consciousness. We are pure space.  

This “I” creates all the problems. This “I” makes our life hell. It splits us into two. We are never at peace. The moment you do away with this “I”, you become pure consciousness, your life becomes utterly creative, you align yourself with the supreme intelligence or creation or Existence.  

The  only goal of humanity should be do away with the Imaginary “I” and create space for creation or existence to act through you.

Two Ways to Create Conciousness

The only objective of humans is to create consciousness. This should be understood. Consciousness is the Goal. Developing Consciousness is aligning oneself with the supreme intelligence. Developing Consciousness is Creativity. Developing Consciousness is Innovation. Consciousness is allowing creation to act through you.
 
You do not have to make an objective to create something new or to innovate. You just have to align yourself with Creation. You have to align yourself with existence. You have to make space for the supreme intelligence to occupy that space and work. For that you have to delete some files from your memory and make space for the intelligence, the only intelligence, to work. Then you will be governed by the supreme intelligence and in that space, everything is put right. Everything is restored to its original form. The anomalies are there because we have started using our so called intelligence. 

When space is created, Creation works through and you are just an agent.

There are two ways to Create consciousness or Create Spaces within. There may be more, but I will elaborate on only these two.

1.  Inwardly Directed (In the Bhagwad Gita, Lord Krishna has referred to it as Antarmukhi, Inwardly directed or facing inwards). This is the way of Gautama Buddha, this is the way of Meditation.

2. Outwardly Directed (In the Bhagwad Gita, Lord Krishna has referred to it as Bahirmukhi, outwardly directed or facing outwards). This is the way of Krishna, this is the way of Action. This way to create consciousness was told to Arjuna by Lord Krishna, just before the famous battle of Mahabharata, when Arjuna was reluctant to fight. 

Both the routes are different but they help you achieve the same – they create spaces within for the Supreme Intelligence work.

And I will repeat, in this space, the unimaginable can happen. Remember This!

Pink Floyd and Consciousness

This is the most enlightening song I have ever heard. In the number “Coming Back to Life”, the author has referred to the human consciousness.  The following is my interpretation of the same number.

 “Coming Back To Life”

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun
 
 
Let us go into it one by one:
 
Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching….
 
By “you” the author has meant his Ego. He has personified the ego. Only one who has experienced his own ego, will be able to personify it. Because your ego is no one but who you think you are. Ego is false “you” created by the society. Ego can be experienced only be being aware. When the author wrote the song, he was aware. He was probably enlightened. He has understood that he is divided, he is split. He is understood that the Ego is a false self and he had mistakenly taken the ego as himself. He had taken the ego as his best friend, his best companion and always listened to what the ego said. 
 
And later being with the ego, one goes mad, one gets split and divided. The ego is the only cause of suffering in this world. The author must have suffered. But later when he found the cause of his suffering, he wrote this song.
 
That is why he says..”where were yo u, when I was burnt and broken”. The author says that he had suffered and was devastated, he was completely finished. What happens to an individual when one gets burnt? He suffers. He was calling his fried, his ego, and asking him that where was he, when he was so devastated and why did he not come to save him at that time of suffering.
 
He was so much involved with the ego that he did not know what is going on outside. He had no idea when it was day and when it was night. The days slipped by..without any notice.
 
The ego is nothing but your mind. It is all accumulated knowledge, your memory. All old stuff. It is not life, it is old. It is suffering. The author was very deeply involved with his mind and this lead to his madness.
 
Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me….
 
The author was hurt and he was helpless. He was bound to be helpless. He was not able to do anything. How can he? You cannot live in the past and take care of the present. You cannot live in your mind solve your present problems. You have to come out of your mind, which is your ego and take care of the present moment. You have to be present. That is why he was helpless. He was hurt but was not able to heal himself. He was being hurt now and he lives in his mind. There occurs a gap between your present and your past, which is your mind, your ego. He was not able to heal himself. He was hurt.
 
That is why he says, “because the things you say and the things you do surround me”. All he was surrounded by was his past and completely forgot to be here and now.

We all are dragged into our pasts. The mind goes into auto mode and keeps us in our minds. This should be understood.
 
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun
 
Remember, the Ego is nothing but the society, it is what other people say, it is what the other people have taught you, forced upon you since the time you were born. You belong the the society. We do not belong to ourselves but we belong to the society. Society tells us what is right and what is wrong. The society decides for us. That is why we always have a hunger for approval. We have hunger for fame. And this has given rise to so may social media web sites, all liking one another and approving one another. The Ego always listens to the others. That is why he says..”While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words…”. Remember, this is the nature of the ego. The society made us. How can now we not crave for approval, how can we not listen?
 
The ego always believes in the other, whatever comes he believes, because it is the product of the society. He is a slave to the society and is bound to listen. The ego is  slave and that is why he is “dying to believe”.
 
“While the ego was listening and believing in others I was handicapped. I was staring straight into the shinning sun. I had no work to do. Because the ego is a slave, I became a slave. I became mad”.  This is what he meant. A person is bound to go mad. How can he follow the society. His own consciousness always interfered with the ego. And how many time will he listen to. He is sure to go mad. Anyone is bound to go mad. 
 
Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
 
See now what he says. He says, he was lost in thought. This means that he was lost in his mind. He was lost in all his accumulated  knowledge. Time is nothing but his past and future. He was lost in imagination. 
 
This is the state of most of the people. They are either lost in their past or imagining about the future. The future is also your past. Because future is all imagination. We imagine what we know, we do not imagine the anything that is beyond our knowledge. It is just a projection of the past. Projection of the knowledge accumulated in the past.
 
He says that he was lost while all the changes happen. Changes never happen the past or future. Changes happen now and here. And we was not changing with the change. He was physically present but mentally absent. He was in his future or past. He did not change. What happens if you do not change, you get mad. It is bound to happen.
 
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
 
He says that he was not aware of what was happening. Whether it is raining or snowing or it was dark. He as so much involved in his ego. He was unaware of the present moment, which lead him to madness.
 
He says that the outside is changing while he was thinking about his past and future and was never in the moment.  He says that this thinking is irresistible because all our thinking is automatic. Because of our conditioning, our thinking goes into auto mode. You must have noticed, whenever you are sitting alone doing  nothing. So many thoughts keep coming. You just cannot avoid. The mind goes into the past and then to the future. It keeps swinging between the past and future. It is never in this present moment. That is why he says this thinking is irresistible and it has automatically become a past time.
 
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life
 
He then suddenly became aware of  his Ego and you have seen that he has personified it. If he was not aware, he would have never been able to personify it. He understood that it is  a false self if his and dissociated himself from the Ego. He dissociated himself from his mind, this thoughts, his past and future and was intensely present in this moment. He was here and how, where exactly the seeds of life and seeds of change were being planted.
 
He became aware of his consciousness, the endless space available beyond the mind. The mind, his thoughts and his past and future became small and there was “silence” around. He took a heavenly ride. The ride through the silence or consciousness is heavenly because all the mind, the thoughts, the past and the future, his ego has been left behind. That is why he felt heavenly as if he has reached heaven, he has reached GOD. This silence is our consciousness. This silence is the supreme intelligence, the only intelligence that runs existence. It is creation.  
 
He says that this silence is OURS. He meant that this silence is available to all of us and if we want we can also access it. Only we have to develop awareness. He says that the moment you develop awareness, you leave the past, the future, the mind, the ego, behind and start living. 
 
One comes back to life.

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun


He became aware of his ego, his mind and continued to stay in the silence. That is why probably he has repeated the line “I took a heavenly ride through our silence” .He was continuously aware and continuously accessed his consciousness. 
 
He says that the “waiting had begun”. The waiting for what? Waiting for the miracle to happen. In the silence, miracles happens and  probably the miracle happened in the form of this song.

Developing Consciousness 1

For doing anything, if it is not a habit or if it is new, you need space. The space will be available if your consciousness expands. Now it is trapped. Even for acting, some amount of consciousness is required. When you go more into it, spaces grow and you keep doing your work. You find space for movement. You start acting. But when you act in that space what will the outcome be, you do not know. Because this space is not yours. The space belongs to Intelligence. The only intelligence available. You do not have to be intelligent, but you have to allow the intelligence to work by creating space. When you create space, you activate the intelligent.


These are some real life examples or situations that will help you understand consciousness so that you can develop awareness. I ll keep posting one after another as and when things happen within me. Because things that happen within me that the things that happen within you. We are one and the same. Our consciousness is the same consciousness. The only difference is our conditioning. The resistance that  I feel is the same resistance that you feel. The words that are used to describe the experience may be different for both of us.
 
Whenever there is a block, or whenever you find anything difficult, or whenever you are unwilling to do something, understand that your consciousness has been completely consumed by your Mind. To do that new thing, which may be a part of the mind, may be old, even to do that, you will need space. Now there are no spaces left. But consciousness is infinite. The fact is that we are not aware of our consciousness.We are not aware of the infinite capacity of  consciousness. This is only because of our ego and conditioning, because of our mind. 
 
Example 1:
 
You drive to work everyday. You take the same route to office most of the days. You are one day transferred to a location which is completely in another part of the city. The route is unknown. The places are unknown. The traffic is unknown. 
 
You start driving from your house. You do not know the direction. You may use a GPS. On the way you keep looking and may be asking others if required. The kind of traffic is new. There may be more or less vehicles. Driving may be difficult. You will drive slow. You start early, apprehending that you might be late on the first day. 
 
You finally reach but it was difficult. You were completely engrossed in you driving and searching for your new office. You were driving but you were sometimes irritated. You kept asking yourself, when will you reach you new office and will curse your company for getting you transferred to the new location.
 
This was because, your entire consciousness was consumed by your mind. It was consumed by the new surroundings, because it was completely new. There was no prior knowledge. It was being obstructed by the existing route to your previous work place. When our consciousness is completely consumed, we become irritated. While driving, any call on you cell phone, you would have been irritated because we become completely blocked. When our consciousness is blocked, we get mentally strained. This inability to take action further becomes a cause for anger and irritation. In such situations some people, who are smokers, stop and have a smoke.
 
You drive to office everyday and get used to the route. Now it is easy because, the new “thing” was forced into your mind  and it created more space. Your consciousness expands. It is no longer limited to the route to your previous office. New space is created.
 
Now, after a month may be, you will start talking on the phone while driving, you will listen to the radio, enjoy the new surrounding, enjoy anything on the way. You may start thinking about the meeting that you will have with your team when you are in office or any work that you have to do when you reach. 

And god knows what you might come up with while you are driving to work. It could be an innovation. It could be something new. There are million and one possibilities.
 
Earlier, driving to office was difficult. Now it is not. Because your consciousness has opened up. You have now more space. Once space created space remains, whether you drive or not and this space can be used for creativity because this space is blank.
 
In this example, when you drove for the first time, the new route was “something”. But after you drove for a month, it became a “NO-THING”. The new route and the driving vanishes in your consciousness. It does not consume it any longer. Now while you drive, you can do other things simultaneously. You are free while you drive.

When you know something really well. It becomes a NO-THING. Then it does not block your consciousness. When it is new, it “Something”, after it becomes regular or with practice it becomes “NO-THING” it does not occupy or block your consciousness any more.
 
You have created consciousness this way and this way you have created space for innovation while you drive.

Obstacles Created by the Ego

In the next few posts we will see how the Ego creates hurdles in the path to innovation and Creativity.
 
All these hurdles are branches of the major hurdle the Ego. But once I tell you how they impede your  movement towards creativity, you will  know when the hurdles come up. You will be able to relate.
 
The Hurdles Created by the Ego are:
  1. Conditioning
  2. Fear of Failure
  3. Risk
  4. Role of Society
  5. Indecisiveness
  6. Self Consciousness
  7. Trying to be someone else
In my next few posts how ego crates the above mentioned problems and how to get rid of them.
 

Consciousness and Rebellion

Rebellion is all about freedom. But freedom is not possible if you are trapped in your own minds. We all are trapped in our own minds. The freedom from your minds can only be achieved by accessing consciousness. Because consciousness is free space. You can create anything there. Your mind is old, it is knowledge, it is conditioning. But consciousness is empty. All new things happen in  consciousness. All innovation and creativity happen in consciousness. It is the only intelligence. This intelligence is the only creator. Everything else is the mind. The mind is old, it is knowledge, how can it create?  Everything else is a trap, a trap of the mind. Rebellion can happen only when you access consciousness.


An innovator is a rebel because he dares to take a different path. He takes a path that no one has taken before. He dares to go against the society. He dares to go into the unknown seas.
 
A rebellion is nothing but moving into consciousness where you can create another road for yourself to walk on by making the knower within yourself evolve. (Please refer to my post – “The Voice, The Knower and the Actor)
 
But this rebellion will not happen when you are your mind. This will not happen till the time you do away with your thoughts, voices and imaginations. For this rebellion to happen only when you have accessed the universal intelligence and when the intelligence has started working through you.
 
For rebellion to happen, the knower within you has to evolve. It has to stand outside and see what is going on in your mind. It has to look into your desires, dreams ambitions and moreover your driving forces, the forces that drive you towards anything – your Driving Forces in life and inhibitions
 
For example – If you are a scientist you have to know what made you make the decision to be a scientist one day. What is the driving force behind every act that you do. You will see that every act of yours is based on something. You will see that every thing that is driving you is all based on your knowledge. You saw, you learnt and now you want to be. 
 
This is the pattern of your thought and this pattern has to be broken. This pattern is your mind and you are trapped inside your mind. Outside it is consciousness, free space, space for endless opportunities. Once you break this prevailing mind pattern you will have access to consciousness. 
 
And once this pattern is broken, you have to started slowly accessing your consciousness. You have started being spontaneous.
 
Knowing this driving force is very important. This driving force has given you a direction in life. But the problem is that the driving force is based on your conditioning, based on your inner voices. These driving forces are based on your knowledge. Now you cannot change lanes. 
 
You are so much in your mind that you do not believe that there is something else other than the mind. You do not believe that there can be another path. You have become “artificially Intelligent”. You believe in thinking and Imagining. What you do is just browse through the files in your memory. You have become programmed. As long as this programming prevails, you will never be able to be a rebel.
 
The moment you have started accessing your consciousness, rebellion within you happens and you start walking an unknown path. You will not be bothered by the society, you will not have fear or inhibitions. You will know that once you are having access to this “intelligence”, you can just move and everything will be taken care by this intelligence.
 
Initially you will not know that you have become a rebel. But you will experience that doing things that you never thought of doing becomes easy. There will be a an excitement and happiness in everything you do. You will be full of energy. You will feel that nothing in this world is impossible. When this happens, you will know that a rebellion has happened within yourself.
 
Only things is – Consciousness has to be accessed by breaking the prevailing mind patterns.
 

Understanding Innovation

Innovation is surely not a myth.  But being the innovator is a myth. 
All ‘goals and objectives’ to Innovate is a myth. You simply cannot innovate. You cannot forcibly make innovation happen. You cannot create anything by wanting to create.

But we seem to spend millions of dollars to innovate. Companies spend millions of dollars hiring the best people to innovate. 

What they do is they force Innovation. They create teams, create goals and timelines to Innovate. It has become a rule that every company should Innovate to survive.  Yes, companies need to innovate to survive. But the fact is that innovation cannot be forced.

The moment you make innovation into a goal. It doesn’t happen. Any goal is of the mind. It is known. Anything you aim, you objective will be one of the files in your memory.

Making innovation into a goal is the greatest obstacle to innovation.

INNOVATION HAPPENS!

Creation is the job of Nature. Nature is constantly creating.You start creating when you align yourself with nature. Innovation happens when you become an agent of “Existence”.

One must understand that innovation is bringing the new into this world. And the new cannot be brought about by thinking. Thinking is just browsing through the files of stored in our memory. All that is there in the memory is dead. It is old. It is all the matter that we have accumulated by our conditioning. It is all the information that we have gathered from books, television, magazines, movies and other media. 

You can only take-in things that already exist. How can you take in something that does not exist? So your memory consists of the old, the used and that already exists. 

You cannot take-in anything that is not yet. You have to create it first, and then take in. This shows that all that has been taken-in is Old. All the memory is old and all thinking is  browsing through the old. Thinking cannot be innovation or creation.

Most of the time or almost all the time, we are searching through our own database, our memory. How can we create? Our memory is Old. Things we would create will  also be old. We go into auto mode or rather I would say, we are all the time in auto thinking mode. We Automatically go into thinking or imagination mode and what all we imagine or think is all memory. Innovation becomes Impossible.

You must have experienced that thinking and imagination happens on its own. It has become natural. We cannot stay without thinking. It has now become very difficult to be here and now and not think. We are most of the time lost in thought. It takes a lot of effort to come to this moment. We are no more natural. We have become abnormal.

Now you know why we cannot create the new or Innovate. 

If you read my previous posts that there is a voice in our head, which is the voice of the ego. We are one with the voice. This voice is old. The more we are with the voice, we remain old, we remain confined to our memory. We cannot innovate.
Innovations happens on its own, whenever we are not with the voice. There are moments when we are not with the voice and during these moments, you become an agent for existence to work through you. 

Creation happens when the “Knower” within has evolved and the “Actor” has separated itself from the voice.

It is as if the programming has been completely removed. The memory has been deleted. 

A robot, in this situation, would have failed. The robot would have stood still because all the the instructions in its memory has been removed. But a human will not. He will start responding to this moment. He will act even if there is nothing in its memory. He will start learning. He will see and learn, watch others and learn. Just like a child. Without the memory the man becomes a child again. 

And this is Pure Intelligence, the intelligence of a child. Not memory, but intelligence. Remember memory is not intelligence. 

Intelligence is the ability to respond to the need of this moment, when you don’t know what to do, never taught what to do, never learnt what to do. Just pure action. This is what separates Intelligence from Artificial Intelligence.

Under such circumstance, using pure intelligence and no memory, INNOVATION happens.

Innovation cannot be thought, It cannot be aimed. It cannot be planned. It cannot be taught. It cannot be learnt. It cannot be made into a goal or Objective.

In other words, innovation happens when thinking stops and intelligence takes over.

The truth is “Innovations just happens” and it happens in Consciousness. It happens when you become the agent of the “Supreme Intelligence”, the only intelligence.

The Voice, The Knower and The Actor

In my previous posts you have read that only by taking action we can do away with the inner talk. Because to act, you have to come out of your imaginations and into the real world. Once you are absorbed completely in the Present Moment, the inner chatter stops.
 
We all are divided into
 
1. The Voice,
2. The Knower and
3. The Actor
The Voice: You have read in my previous posts that there is an inner voice, which is the voice of the ego. The voice is the product of imaginations. You are unaware of the presence of the presence of this voice. This voice is very deep and so jumbled up that we are not able to hear the voice. But at the same time, we are one with the voice. The voice of the ego becomes our voice. In other words, the voice talks and we talk loudly at the same time, simultaneously. The voice orders and we follow. But this voice is baseless because it is a product of Imaginations. There is nothing real about imaginations.

For every real situation, we have an imaginary situation in our memory, that matches with one of our imagined identities.Even if we do not have, we create on with things stored in our memory. But all these situations are old. They are confined to the memory, far away from pure intelligence.

The moment we do not like a situation we go into our minds and our mind with its extraordinary ability creates a situation that matches with one of our Identities to make us feel good.

This is an automatic process. Generally it is beyond your control. It happens before even you know what is happening. By the time you know, you are already there. You just can’t avoid.

Even if you are in this moment. There is a constant uneasiness. This is because, you are being dragged by your imaginations. You are tense. This uneasiness happens when you have to do something that you do not like.
The more we are with the voice, the more we are with the Ego. Being with the voice and following its orders will keep us old. It will never allow us to take the unknown path. It will never allow us to Create or Innovate.
This voice has to be done away with. But in order to do away with the voice, one has to first know the voice. Carefully hear what is says. To know our centuries old egos, we have to hear and know what the voice says. This is the first step towards liberation from your egos.
Just for the sake of understanding, this voice can be compared to the “mouth”. A mouth doesn’t see or hear or it does not have hands and legs to act.  The mouth has no option but to “talk” or keep quiet.
The knower: One needs to know the voice in order to do away with it. The knowledge of the voice being there takes you out of the voice.
You will only wash your hands clean when you will know that they are dirty. Till the time you do not have the knowledge that your hands are dirty, you will think that the hands are clean. The moment you have a look, you will immediately know that they are dirty and wash them clean.
Similarly, to dissociate with the voice, one has to first know that it exists. Only the knowledge of the voice being there, takes you out of it. This voice is of the past, and since you are with the voice, you become the past. The moment you start hearing the voice, the incessant chatter, you come out of it. You become present. And from the present you listen to the past.
Just knowing that the voice exists is a great leap in the path to Innovation.
For the sake of understanding, this knower is the “Ear”. It listens. It does not have a mouth to talk or hands and legs to act out. It simply listens.

The moment you start arguing with a thought or a voice, it gives rise to another voice and you get more immersed in the voice or many voices. The knower then does not get a change to evolve.
The Actor: The actor takes the real action. 

It is only hands and legs. It is neither the mouth nor the Ear. It can only act. It can act spontaneously as per the requirement of the present moment. When separate from the voice, we have no other option but to act as per the moment. But we are all the time one with the voice. We are one with the ego. We are our egos.

The action, which is without the voice, is pure action. It is pure intelligence. It is the need of the moment.
In order for innovation to happen, one has to separate the actor from the voice, by making the knower evolve. Once separated, everything that you do is new. Everything is an innovation.
You become aligned with the the supreme intelligence.
We are most of the time with the voice. Our actions are based on our conditioning. It is all old. And in this state, innovation cannot happen.
There are moments, when the we completely give up our ego and innovation happens. It cannot be forced. It just happens.
Our objective will be to make ourselves separated from our conditioned past, the Ego. It may not be completely possible, but it is possible to a very large extent.
The day it is completely possible, you will become a “Buddha”. You would be creating Consciousness.
