a branch of the life of God is just the Living God branching

Intellect is not intelligence as J. Krishnamurti said.It is very difficult to come out of this trap and come to

What is “this trap?” If one recognizes the nature of the trap, one may find that the trap requires ongoing energizing and nourishing in order to persist.

In the absence of the activity of creating “a difficult trap that traps me,” the momentum of “trapping me” dissolves like the heat of a stove when one turns off the heat. The burner may still be red hot, but when there is no additional energy flowing to heat the burner, soon the burner cools a little and then eventually has no extra heat.

So, what is the nature of “trapping me?” Is it related to defining myself and identifying an image and labeling how I am and how I am not? What if I am not any certain way? What if I do not reject any particular way?

A branch of God can declare “I am just a single isolated branch- this one but not that one.” However, what if that branching is all the activity of the tree from the beginning? When there is the identifying of “I am only this branch,” that is the isolating of a particular branch. When there is no isolating of a particular branch, does the branch “become” the entire tree? Does the branch “achieve” inner tree-dom?

What if the branch never did anything of its own and all activity of branching was also the activity of treeing? What if “the trapping of the branch” was just one activity of the tree? What does the tree need to do in order to stop the trapping of the branching? The tree just branches. When the tree just branches, “the trapping of the branch” does not trap the tree.

“The trapping of the branch” is always just an activity of the tree. Can the branch of the Living of God come to the secret of the tree of the Living of God? No, but the tree of the Living of God can make up that there is a trap and there is a secret to get out of the trap.

If one recognizes the nature of “the trap,” who is it that could recognize the trap? Are you the “secret trap” of “I am just an isolated branch” or are you the one who recognizes and creates such isolating in language?

“How did the branch get trapped in the tree? How did the tree trap the branch?”

When it is clear that those questions are nonsense from the beginning, then intelligence has recognized intelligence. The dreaming of the intellect (the mind, the ego) never trapped intelligence. The intelligence is the source of the intellect and the poetic dreams of neuro-linguistic “Maya” (delusion, ignorance, misperception, sin, Mara). This is the ancient teaching that in various languages has been called Advaita, Holiness, Wholeness, Catholicism, Salvation,  Enlightenment, Taoism, The Middle Way, The Good News, The Dharma, the Truth of Spiritual Liberation, The Revelation of Divine Unity, The Rebirth of the Eternal, Knowledge of the Tree of Life, Jnana Yoga, Zen Buddhism, and so on.
