FACTOR # 26. The manifestations of pleasure and pain, of thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behaviour and being are thus derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.

There is no thinking when one is objectively observing things as they are. It is the view that is the thinking of the universal viewpoint. Similarly, it the view that contains the emotions, sensations and feelings. In reaction to this view come about behaviors, such as, communication and effort.

Therefore, additional thoughts, emotions, sensations and feelings are generated as reactions only. If there are no reactions, nothing beyond the view is generated, and view starts resolving itself. As the view is simplified, so are the thoughts, emotions and effort in them.

There is no thinking really. All there is, is the view. Affinity, reality and sensations are part of what is viewed. Any communication simply flows naturally. The key to life is fully understanding what is there. Therein lies ultimate truth, awareness and bliss.

KHTK FACTOR # 26: All thoughts, emotion and effort exist in what you view. Thinking and sensing, pleasure and pain, affinity, reality and communication, appear and disappear in that view. Riddles form and resolve in it. None of these manifestations are permanent.



All human travails arise from the narrowing of the viewpoint due to fixations. This then leads to extraneous thoughts, emotions and efforts, and all other human phenomena that goes with it.

The universal viewpoint is beyond all such travails.
