Keep secrets from myself?

 

Can the mind keep secrets from itself? Not really. It knows its own games and what it tries to hide from itself. It knows what it’s trying to compensate for, what it doesn’t want to face (see, feel), what it’s trying to avoid.

That’s why the question what do I know that I don’t want to know can be helpful.

And perhaps especially when we feel torn and indecisive. Often, there is a knowing there that we don’t want to take in. The indecision and torment come from the tension between knowing while not wanting to know.

Note: This question – what do I know I don’t want to know – is from Adyashanti.

Initial notes……

  • secret from myself?
    • when play games with myself, is it really a secret from myself?
    • the mind knows, it knows its own games, it knows what it’s trying to hide from itself
    • it knows what it’s trying to compensate for, what it doesn’t want to face (see, feel), what it’s trying to avoid
