When we truly understand how mind operates, we no longer trust its usual ways of understanding.
We are no longer in the market tot buy what the mind is selling.
We do not have to get stuck in what the mind affirms, and we do not have to adhere to the inherent.
But all this depends on a seeing that catches ‘minding’ in action, that sees the trick as it is being performed.
And such a seeing depends on the light of inquiry. Revealed in this light, the implicit and intrinsic have no place to hide, and so cannot play their secret role.
