Vision is not about perceptive human images, as understanding is not about speculative theory.  So can a mind meet to find comprehension which merge the two?  If so, where?

None of that makes any sense, either what you’re asking or what you’re suggesting.  Needs some serious rewriting.

You don’t understand I was asking you to reword this in a way that makes sense - not to toss out some platitude about living your life with active intention.

“Vision merging with understanding”? what’s that? learning from experience?
Or vision being a part of perception? well yeah…
is your last sentence about ‘becoming one with the world’? in what context?

“Vision of the silence”? is that un-judgmental observation?
“meet to find comprehension”? is that harmonizing, balancing the need for action with the need for stillness?

juda seems to me you like riddles for riddles sake - i’ve never been good with riddles,
though I have done okay with active living and dancing along the sword’s edge of existence,
striving to walk with grace and all that.  It’s been fun lotta failures, lotta successes, lotta living - at 61 happy to be here.

This is why I often find your posts intriguing, provocative,
sad part is often it seems you’re more into playing games and enjoying personal jokes,
rather than engaging in genuinely constructive dialogue.

[I]Still since this is forum for discussion more than showing off, allow me to ask,
in your own words, what are you trying to ask, what is the point you are trying to illuminate?

Ask people who are starving to death, are victims of wars, oppressed or discriminated.

Don"t worry, CC, we’re all in the same boat. The program just won’t let us fix typos. I’ve been a professional editor most of my adult life and it kills me to not be able to correct things, most of which are a result of my own bad typing on the iPad keyboard. (I’m a good typist on a conventional one.) Other times it’s the fault of the “auto-correct” function, which should be called Auto-error.

You can turn it off in Settings/Keyboard. Then turn off auto-correction. Leave on everything else. You will still be prompted if a word is spelled wrong and a correct spelling will be shown, which you can select. It just won’t “correct” it for you, against your will.  I did this several years ago and have never regretted it, even though a misspelled word or two manages to gets through because of my own inattention. It looks as if I’ll never be able to correct anything after I’ve sent it to CFI.

Still, it’s fun to bitch about.  At least our lil Spam Nazi ain’t harming anyone.

Good suggestion about going into keyboard Preferences.

One can easily oppose what others state in words, by stating opposition.  What is ironic is such words do not expand the opposition, only ones belief.  Beliefs fill the world, and when such opposition is examined among others filing beliefs, one cannot find where such opposition exist in the oceans and seas were all others beliefs are accepted only as opinions.  The world is full of men claiming this is or is not the truth.  Men write books and themes of theology, philosophy, and psychoanalyze everything under the sun on the whims of these writing without the wisdom of having experiential experience of what is projected.  Men deny, on one hand abstractions possibility, and on the other hand accept ‘hear-say opinions and concepts as their stabilized beliefs knowledge. And as all people who go to the grave with lack of knowledge, while they live, will sit under the teaching of these men, listen to their philosophical babbling indoctrinated ignorance that their experience of living is applicable to all men. 


“The greatest hypocrisy man has ever known, or will ever know is the deceptive acceptance of that which he knows not upon himself. Deception which makes him believe he cannot take one step beyond the god of the human mind. And the questioning doubt of himself as to what is really the body of his living, in this parenthesis, God has prepared for him, when he is already clothed with the entire body of life in all forms. The true nature of expansion for each individual to achieve the awareness of this prepared body is comprehending the Body of God is His Word, and God’s Word is fulfilled in The Breath of His everlasting awareness one breathe second by second.

There must be an unyielding earnest desire of wanting to step out of the clutches of the god of this world’s mentality into the substance and essence of THAT “without father, without mother, without decent, having neither beginning of day nor end of life.” Each step one takes to be free has to start by comprehending the myth of God being in the form of a man.  This is the metaphor which deceives. 

“Old Church Hymns And Nursery Rhymes”  - Waylon Jennings

Blow on you restless wind
Up to your old tricks again
Bear down you Texas sun
You make the desserts dry
And the brush fires run

Splintered wood, rusty chains
This old front porch swing remains
A pendulum of memories
Goes back and forth on a summer breeze

Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes
From the days way back before my time
With a little child upon my knee
Singing every sweet word back to me

Look how far I had to come
To get back where I started from
With a child’s wisdom passing time
Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes

I’ve run the race, I’ve walked the wire
I paid the price of my desire
And the only time I’ve known it all
Is just before I took a fall

So howl you lone coyote song
Fade to sapphire sky of dawn
Count me in the lucky men
To send the world around again

Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes
From the days way back before my time
With a little child upon my knee
Singing every sweet word back to me

Look how far I had to come
To get back where I started from
With a child’s wisdom passing time
Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes

Didn’t see that coming. You use so many words, it’s hard to tell what you’re saying most of the time.

Pretty much everyone here has taken this step, so, not sure where it fits in the conversation. But at least we found something we agree on.

What you didn’t see coming was the elaboration on the original topic: “What is the difference between vision of the silence & Understanding the nature of reality?” and not all the ghost rattling chain conversations, and non- evidentiary rule opposing statements which one doesn’t believe, but do not know if real or imaginary.

And we’re back to not knowing what you’re talking about
