You cry because you’re sad. In reality, though, it’s the other way around. The body works through interaction with the environment. You’re sad because you cry.
We think of abstract concepts such as kindness and courage using words. Your pet has a consciousness, but humans have a higher consciousness through inner speech.
Life is like railroad tracks. The left rail is mental, and the right is the physical processes. Your speech connects these two rails in a breath or two seconds.
Just like persimmon seeds inside the hard shell, sow your vocal seeds. Nurture and feel them grow. With Empatheme, cultivate your seeds of life.
“Take Care” Of Your Practice
Like air resistance or friction, you don’t feel your little inner resistance or friction in daily life. However, when you try to continue practice, these small obstacles accumulate and grow bigger. It can’t be helped you face a challenge like this, but you need to find a way to overcome it before you run out of energy to keep practicing.
We often overestimate our ability and endurance to continue a practice, which leads us to fail.
We can’t just ignore the resistance and friction inside us and devalue supportive others and the environment.
Empathy is the connection between ourselves and others. Naturally, we are all connected by air. But we live while making “distinctions” between the connections.
Peter Godfrey-Smith says.Octopuses know humans really well. The world is a continuum of self and others. We all live together in the connection of mind.
Think of the drills. An electric drill. A math drill. A marching band drill. An evacuation drill. They have one thing in common. The power of focused iteration.
The majority of life moments are completed every two seconds. It is a time for speech and thought-Inner speech in two seconds gates our self-awareness.
In a blink of an eye – the length of a moment is 0.1 second. The discrete sound that a human can distinguish is 0.1 seconds. That’s the edge of consciousness.
