The function of the mind is to investigate and learn.
To learn in philosophical sense doesn´t only mean to cultivate the memory, or to accumulate knowledge, but to learn to think clearly and rational without illusions, to start with facts and not with beliefs and ideals.
When the thought originates from the conclusion, you learn nothing.
Merely to get information or knowledge is not to learn in philosophical sense.
To learn in philosophical sense includes love of understanding, and doing a thing for its own guilt.

The movement of time consists of two movements, which we could call the outgoing movement and the backmovement
The movement of time consists of two universal movements, which we could call the outgoing movement and the backmovement: future and past, creation and destruction.
These two movements are reflected throughout the Universe in a multiplicity of different lifecycles: they are Samsara´s wheel of up-cycles which are followed by down-cycles and vice versa (for instance life and death, success and fiasco, joy and sorrow) - all this which is lying behind the law of Karma and rebirth.
This Universe is for instance considered to be a reincarnation of a past Universe, in the same way as a human is being considered to be a reincarnation of a past existence.
The happy movement is characterized by that awareness and being go together.
Existential movement gives life colour, or it is life in its colour-richness.
It is life-giving, or it is the identity in its life-giving form.
Movement creates light in the identity, gets it to light up.
There is in it an energy, which is spreading as liveliness in the identity.
It is the flowering of the essence of Man.
The movement is so to speak a radiance of life.
It is the thinking, which has been transparent in being: self-forgetful thinking

All of the thought´s activities, whether they are positive or negative, are usually experiences that actually strengthen the ego, because they suck life out of the present, out of the Now and timeless, and into time´s self-producing movement from past towards future.
Is it therefore possible for the mind to let life flow back to the present, to allow a total existential presence in the Now?
As the Stoics and the Taoists say, then it can only happen when there is completely silence.

All models of society have had terrible consequences because they, in the under evaluation of other influences than the historical, create an imbalance.
They confuse personal and collective images with reality.
The simplest expression of this malfunction of the human mind - which this bring about - is the concept of ideology.

Our natural needs are not the will to power, but it is the will to power when things and sense impressions tie us, both in psychological and existential sense; that is to say: in the sense, that we can´t feel happy without them, that they have become our foundation of existence.

We need that philosophical life-teaching and and pratice, which is offered in philosophical counseling.
There is a need of philosophers who partly are university educated, partly have a philosophical life-practice; that is to say: philosophers who - like Socrates, the Stoics, the Epicureans, and the philosophers in the East - are and live what they think and teach, true teachers, whose thinking is made transparent in being, and who consequently live what they teach.

We must discriminate between the personal/collective images in time, and the universal images.
The personal and collective images work in sequences in past and future.
The universal images work in synchronism with the Now.
If you are completely existential present in the Now, you will receive information through the universal images - you will be made transparent in wisdom.
The Ego has stepped aside.
You will have contact with the world of forms, as Plato formulated it.

The memory consits of multifold experiences, which have been named, identified, and it is this process, which creates the Ego, the inner spectator, theorist, doubter.
The Ego is tied to time and its images.

What is important for the life artist is not that which should be, or that which could be, nor what principle you ought to follow, what kinds of ideals you ought to have, or to what religion, or what political party you ought to belong to.
It is clear, that all such reactions altogether are meaningless when you are facing the confusion, the need, misery and continous conflict, in which we live.

Anxiety is the trap in which you are caught.
Unless you are free from anxiety and everything anxiety implies, you can´t see and feel clearly and deeply.
It is obvious that where there is anxiety there is a closed attitude, and therefore no freedom and love.
