About This Blog

knowledge-books

Knowledge comes to us in the forms of Religion, Philosophy, Science, Art, etc. Knowledge is there to be used. But the complexity in how knowledge is expressed always leads to difficulty.

Knowledge is inherently consistent regardless of the source it comes from. Complexity appears only in those areas where inconsistencies abound. Resolve the inconsistency and the complexity goes away.

It is generally assumed that knowledge is a product of thinking, but there is more to it. Actually, thinking may prevent one from discovering what is there.  As one looks past this obfuscating layer of thinking, new ideas may appear. Some discoveries in science, masterpieces in art, and extraordinary performances in sport, etc., have come in the moments of no-thinking, or simply looking..

The effort underlying this blog is to promote education by reducing complexity of knowledge as much as possible.

Self-learning is a fascinating subject on its own. The focus of this blog in the area of education is to make self-learning possible.

The essence of learning is “recognizing things for what they are.” This is mindfulness. Mindfulness is found to be the basis of therapeutic gains. Mindfulness is also a critical element in productive discussions.

With self-learning one can contemplate on the wider sphere of life and this universe. This is philosophy. Broadly, this blog is an investigation into the interface between physics and metaphysics.

We seem to be at the threshold of understanding human consciousness.

This whole blog is a work in progress. All help in making this blog useful is welcome.

Hope you find the contents of this blog useful and enjoyable.

    Its is true that finding the space between thoughts has incredible reflections in life.

    I enjoyed reading this blog Vinay, it allows us to deepen our thought process and delve into places that we may or may not have thought possible. Thanks for sharing.
    Fondle,

    I enjoyed this. I like it because it addresses individuals where they are currently at, and takes them to a higher level. It seems most people are thoroughly involved in their social millieu, and it’s hard for them to extricate themselves to pursue higher awareness.

    I hope the Mariners are better this year.

    • vinaire  On February 9, 2012 at 8:29 AM

      I hope so too.

      Kevin, I like your blitzkrieg of comments. 🙂

    hi cha,
    i read up till KHTK :3A,
    will start devoting some time to myself and see where my mind leads me.
    thanks for everything
    love
    nidhi.

      Hi Nidhi,
      Love to hear from you.
      KHTK is Buddha’s Vipassana. I am trying to make it so one can apply it to oneself at home. This is all very powerful stuff… simple but effective. Let me know how it goes.
      Loves, Cha

      P.S. I shall be writing about the subject of inconsistencies, which will guide one where to look.

    V… dear soul.. I have found out long time back that there are no coincidences… Things which look like they are coming together randomly they are not in fact… The incidents always arrive at the right time when it is needed to fit into the rest of the puzzle.
    You need me and you will see why… so don’t fuss… let it flow.
    V…”The category of Philosophy outlines an attempt to look at knowledge and awareness. “”””We are at a threshold of knowing about human awareness.”””
    V… dear bug… I have that knowledge, so do not doubt…. as I said let it flow…
    I am sure you will give me for exchange what I need: the materials of my next lessons.

    • vinaire  On December 17, 2012 at 5:07 AM

      Dear Elizabeth, you will get what you need whether I give it to you or not. Yes, KHTK Looking (or Vipassana) is all about letting it flow.

      My challenge is not just to know myself, but also to make it easier for others to know themselves. That is why I have procedures, such as, Addressing Unwanted Condition and MORE ON MINDFULNESS, and I am helping others use them. No e-meter is required.

      Look at any person in your neighborhood, who wants to improve his/her condition and you will have the materials for your next lesson.

        V… I been doing just that for years… looking at conditions of the Earth.. the Universe and every being who I encounter and who has considerations and I sort out as-is those inconsistencies which are the miss-understanding: the walls a ridges a solid barriers and they existence interrupts the harmony of the natural flows.

  • Elizabeth Hamre  On December 17, 2012 at 5:56 PM

    Yes it is…. to me that is fun… the best adventure I ever have created for my self.

  • vinaire  On November 7, 2013 at 4:29 PM

    This is the best site I’ve ever seen. I do want to say thank you. I wrote a book and I’m trying to get it published on Create Space. To do this I need to have a WordPress account. I’m using a publisher Soul Attitude Press and things are moving along. The publisher John Rehg is a very kind man and helping me along but OH! I’m so ignorant. I wish I had at least one thousanth of knowledge you have. God Bless You.

    • vinaire  On March 12, 2018 at 9:11 AM

      Claude,

      How big is your book? How many chapters? How many pages? How many words?

  • Claude Griffin  On March 12, 2018 at 12:19 PM

    It’s about 145 pages. Not a large book. Recently edited and uploaded to Google Drive, but there is a host of plug ins and editing skills on word press that i’m totally in the dark about. I’m fully dependent on my publisher to iron out the wrinkles. He’s really a patient skillful man. But I feel like an ignoramus. I shy away from endless chatter on face book, twitter, etc yet they are important links to my book. So many things to talk about, so many things unworthy of talk. But I do wish I had more skills with technology. I was a member of writers group and was told I’m a good writer and I’ve written lots of poems, short stories, self help, and on the twelfth chapter of a novel. But the technology of getting published is way beyond me. I seldom communicate on anything other than gmail. I do love your blog where you talk about your personal experience with Scientology, your breakthrough in awareness, and everything else. My book is fifteen chapters about my personal experience with addiction to alcohol, recovery, training and experience working with others, and yoga. I’ve taught yoga at statewide conferences for Alcoholics Anonymous and July I’ll be going to Detroit Mich. for an international conference. There will be thousands of people there from all over the country and I will probably not get a chance to be a speaker, but I will have more experience than most every body-sixty one years of unbroken sobriety. Thanks to the AA program, to my yoga teachers, and people like you I’ve had a wonderful life My 87th birthday was last month and I feel wonderfully alive, looking forward to at least ten more years of life. It’s a little hard for me to grasp the reality of being a law school drop out, living as a homeless person on skid-row, going back to college and studying psychology, becoming a respected yoga teacher, and loving great literature. I like Mary Oliver’s poem about death– When it’s over I want to say I was a bride married to amazement, I was the bridegroom holding the world in my arms…. I like the writing of Eknath Eswaran a former professor at Berkeley who wrote several volumes of translation and commentaries of the Bhagvad Gita.
    He was born and raised in India in the Blue Mountains. I’ve read most all his books, and went to the Blue Mountains a few years ago. With some Indian friends. My book is fairly short, mostly how a person can overcome addictions and create a purposeful life. I did not mean to write so much in this response to your blog, I’m sorry but did not know how to say what I’ve never shared with you before. My member ship In Alcoholics Anonymous is anonymous because it’s considered to be an act of compassion to not flaunt my ego. Please forgive me. Your are one of the most extraordinary people I’ve ever met and you do have compassion.

      I loved to read all these details that I have not known about you before. Would you like me to host your book on my blog as well?

  • Claude Griffin  On March 14, 2018 at 6:25 PM

    You are very kind in every way. God Bless You. I did not intend to have me hosted on your blog. My book is still in process of being published. The kindle version is nearly done and the hard copy should be done in just a few days, but there is still lot’s of interaction with my publisher, with Amazon, etc. If you hosted my book that would be a real blessing, but I have a lot to learn about blogging, WordPress web site, etc. and I don’t think I’d be knowledgeable enough to step up to the level of your blog but maybe someday I could. I just always get joyful just talking to you.
