As Direct Experience - without definition - Self can explore Self -- within Self-definition - Self only explores Self-dishonesty.
So it is important to have a physical experience reference to a state of beingness when not defining.
Then this reference point can be used within self honesty points regarding to automatic behaviour.
Is this the "empty" mind or the noisy mind what is working, directing me?
Reality just is - without any romance - without embracing the whole polarity system in each breath - the mind can not be transcended.
