In my humble opinion, it's really all about how one can think. Mine is an analytical mind. Minds of such do excellently on imprisoning their thoughts, as it is most typical for their thought processes to flow in one direction. How is this 'not the way'? It very well can be.
As another thing; I fail to see how all art must be perfect. I consider verbosity an art, and it is only an art because of its intricacy (and complexity). And must all life be balanced? If you will use the oxymoron 'organized chaos (not balanced)', I believe it works wonderfully too. Let me explicate this. My brain is full with chaos, and I wouldn't have it any other way, because it, in all essence, works. It saves me from tedium, and it fuels me greatly. I let this 'chaotic energy (and mindset)' out into my writings and habits, and I find that, as I said, it works brilliantly. Also, I find that extremes avail me in daily life several times over.
Any comments, good sir?
Sounds like what is referred to as a fragmented mind. I understand you Ragnell because I to have somewhat of a fragmented mind. However, I'm learning that this is not as productive as tuning into the one mind that's created all minds.
I've read all these and my response is that yes, one can read another's mind if they are tuned into the one light of all thinking. While we're all very different and autonomous, we are also very alike and connected. Electra mentioned the Indian that read her mind... They believe in the one Great Spirit. This one spirit they believe is the center of the universe. Whether we call the One, God, Spirit, or whatever people choose, the bottom line is there is one and we're all energy.
Now, I like the picture posted above by Pythagorean because it's actually a great description of the Universe. The three points of the triangle could go to represent God (on top), man on the bottom right corner and again man on the bottom left corner. The triangle is all connected as we are all connected. Imagine this triangle as a chain. If there is a break in the chain between man and God and man and man, then one cannot tune into the One light of Universal mind and creativity. With most of us, there is a broken link. Somewhere, something is keeping us from knowing ourselves and 'God' (if you will - I use this word because of it's common understanding).
So, reading mind I would think is more to tuning into the one mind of God... Am I making any sense? I also feel that this is done via Rythmic Balanced Interchange through vibration and energy... We're energy, our spirit is energy, God is energy.
Those are my thoughts on it. ... And no, I have not completely linked that chain together. It seems that if the link between man and God isn't broken then man would recognize the universal oneness with fellow man. So, in my opinion, reading mind would not really be reading mind, it would be like Electra mentioned, "tunning in" and fixing the breaks in those links.
Quickly, my family spent Christmas at my parents and when all the gifts were passed, my mother thought that she would play a guessing game with the last 3 stocking stuffers. She announced that she was going to pick a number between 1 and 20 and each of us were allowed to guess and the closest to the number would win. She started with me and I said the exact number she chose. So, I won... I could see the look on her face. She did it again, and again, I said the exact number and then she looked kind of startled --- I was first both times. The third time she did this, the number that she had chosen was also the one that I had in my mind once again, however I refrained from saying it. When it came to me, I chose another number because first of all it isn't fair that I've already won two stocking stuffers, and I also didn't want to startle anyone in the family. Instances like this one have happened a lot during my life on different occasions, this was just one. I truly don't have an explanation as to why or how and certainly wasn't trying to, it just came out.
Just something I wanted to share.
