But.. if in doubt, if there is a sense of acceptance, enjoyment or enthusiasm, and if the choices are being made in love, not fear, then NOT getting over / used to something can be present also. (hmmm... wanders off pondering that one..... )
Yah that's interesting. Knowledge without understanding is like a seed without water. Of course there is nobody here and nothing to get over. But if there is a not getting over, then there is desire to not get over. Desire to not get over is desire to be separate. Desire to be separate is desire to suffer. If desire to suffer is no longer present, then desire to not get over isn't either. With that understanding knowledge of past and future is meaningless. To the extent there is meaning it belongs to nobody impaticula. :shock:

I thought it would be helpful to point out that the desire to suffer is "unconscious", even though this might seem obvious. Often times the "desire to not get over" is driven by a lack of understanding of the "emotional body". If there is a fear of thought and emotion, the logical sequence above ain't gonna do nobody no good, because an already embedded misunderstanding is causing a gliche in the matrix.

If there is a fear of emotional pain, there is the belief of being a separate self. How to get rid of the latter? By wanting the former, which of course "feels counterintuitive", but is actually logical, not to mention necessary to transcend mind.

As such, no matter how profound the experience, once it has ceased to change, it is no longer experienced and remains only as a comparative memory repeatedly activated, which itself tends to cease.

Once all such movement has ceased, one finds oneself precisely where they were before the movement began. Not more or less happy or contented. This means that all states are self normalizing. Movement ceases and one returns to the neutral point of one's subjective life.
Is this the nature also of what mind calls boredom?

Yeah, nobody wants the movement to stop because the sense of self is continually derived from that movement. Though it may not seem like it, ego is actually a fragile illusion that requires continual reinforcement, which is why ego must keep looking for the next practice to subdue ego. Hehe.

Desire to be separate is desire to suffer.
Well, nobody actually desires to suffer, its just the consequence of the failed attempt to be autonomous.
