Brief Recap

Here is a brief recap of terms and descriptions in alphabetical order.  They are linked to relevant posts onsite and other places.  
To read all posts on a specific topic consult the Label list in the sidebar.  Be Lucid!

Perceiving your concepts as real.

Big Ticket Item:
Habits that don't work, cause problems, and remain active despite attempts to stop/change.

Blue Bunny:
An indicator you create which, when encountered, prompts you to be lucid to your dream of life.

Conceive or Concept:
The story we associate with perceiving to make it make sense for us

Conditional Happiness:
The expectation that something must or cannot happen in order for happiness to occur.

Do Nothing allowing ourselves the space to perceive what is not yet known.  It is the secret ingredient to making lasting change.

Explicit Memory:
What you know you know, a deliberate process

Fill-In the Blank:  
Elaborative words that fall into the motion categories (see description this page) of Have, Think, Feel, Say, Do often introducing it as a new object which compounds and adds to the original story object. eg You (see Space) Never (see Time) Feel (motion) fill-in the blank: Satisfied.  Oftentimes the motion words are the blank-fillers as in You Never Think!

Implicit Memory:
What you don't know you know, consists of automatic procedures

A mind boggling concept often identified as what the mind knows, thinks, feels, expects, desires, avoids etc. (also see description of Space on this page)

Ignorance: Not knowing how to not know

Comfortable with and adept at not yet knowing; curious, creative, observant

Lucid Change: The intent to live lucid rather than automatically

Mitote: The traffic of thoughts in the mind leading to more thoughts, and thoughts about thoughts, and so on and on and on.  Aggravating.

Have, Think, Feel, Say, and Do are the action or motion that comes from the relationship of space time, satisfying the human need to have a story or to know (or to think we know) about each person, place or thing we conceive (see definition this page).

Nevermind (Mantra):  
 A practice for interrupting the sting of five words involved in all mitote and story-telling that distract us from being lucid in the dream of life.  It is suggested that when any of the words in the three strings of five come into play in such as way as to bring about discomfort for oneself or another, the progress of the three strings is first acknowledged by stating the sequence of the first two strings which represent the inevitability of space and time in life as we know it, then to pre-empt the third string which contains optional words which complete our creative process by producing the blanks we fill-in with knowledge based on our limited experiences; with the single word Nevermind, until the story sequence is abated.
                              I, You, We, They, This
                              Always, Never, Could, Should, Can't
                              Nevermind (substitutes for Have, Think, Feel, Say, Do (fill-in the blank)

Noticing the Mundane:
Being lucid to the individual components of mundane sequences like "fix dinner", "get ready", "get ready for work".  Example: Fix Dinner might become: Open cabinet, remove skillet, touch refrigerator handle, open door, select package of tofu, open package, drain tofu in sink etc.  Not a tofu lover?  Don't be so literal!

Seeing prior to attaching knowledge to create a seen. Not yet knowing.  Also see Lucid.

Objects conceived as  I, You, We, They, and This as broad categories containing countless related terms (such as That in the category of This as well as specific this and that's or particular names of specific people or groups of people/causes etc in any of the other categories. Even in the I caegory, the distinction between self and Self would both be contained therein as they are nonetheless conditional concepts (see definition in this list) of an unconditional perception (see definition in this list)

Three Strings of Five:
Three sets of five words I, You, We, They, This; Always, Never, Should, Could, Can't; Have, Think, Feel, Say, Do that categorize the terms we use to tell the stories of our lives as Space (Who-What and Where) x Time (When) = Motion (or action, How).  Also see Nevermind Mantra on this page.

Time: As Always, Never, Should, Could, and Can't, Time imposes a sense of loss, lack, and limitation (even Always is kept from being Never) upon object categories (see Space).  These terms represent general categories which may contain countless related terms so that Could may contain Can etc.

Unconditional Happiness:
Yep, there really is such a thing.

Wise Sages and Teachers:  A wide variety of teachings are the substratum for these blog posts from modern scientific thought on the part of great thinkers like Einstein, to Greek philosophers like Heraclitus and other ancient sages like Vashistha, the Buddha, and Jesus among others, including teachers I have known in this lifetime who helped me see the light. The wisdom I share here is drawn on the concensus that there is one truth told many ways.  I am grateful for all of them.  If you would like to know the source for any of the concepts introduced on this blog consider any and all of the above.
