"The most difficult part of the warrior's way is to realize that the world is a feeling. When one is not-doing, one is feeling the world"
--Don Juan / Carlos Castaneda
The abstractly thinking conscious human mind is one of our greatest assets. And one of the biggest reasons we act stupidly, individually or collectively. When you've frozen the world into a set of convenient abstractions that you can move around in your head, you've also lost touch with the magic of what's really there and what could be there.

A healthy dose of nonsense, surrealism and humor can shake us out of our addiction to reality defined by abstractions of the past, and into something more interesting. It apparently also makes us smarter.

Maybe more interesting, anything that temporarily can get our egocentic left-brain thinking-thinking minds out of the way gives us the opportunity to connect with the world more directly, through our more right-brain wholistic parallel processing senses. Or, said differently, if we can stop doing what we otherwise do obsessively and repetitively, we might be able to actually feel the world.

This strikes me as a "Truism"...
In the sense that when we stop and not do we can and to feel and "sense" the earth and when that happens we can in effect and affect strike up a "silent dialogue" with it... a dialogue between two seemingly sentinent beings of different temporal modes.... it is difficult thought then to communicate our understandings of such in "words" to others and they simply have to perhaps stop and not do themselves to understand perhaps as when the buddha was asked "what is enlightenment?" and simply paused smiled and held out a flower.

Hello! Saw you on Jeopardy and had to look up your books! Although I share the same hometown as Nicholas Sparks, mystery is much more my cup of tea!

I just finished reading the entire Lewis Cole series. Terrific job of developing each character. Normally, I detest cliff-hanger endings.
