#820n

May 3, 2016

The quote says, “It is this ignorant self-limiting tendency of the mind that views the infinite as the finite.”

What is this self-limiting tendency?

Once upon a time I would have said that it is believing false ideas, and that’s true. It is believing false ideas and false appearances. However, it seems helpful to look at this in a new way now.

The self-limiting tendency is looking out.
Or said another way, it is being mesmerized with objects.

I make this clarification because I notice attention loves to go out … is addicted to going out … even if there is no belief in what it is focused on. A wild never-will-be-true fantasy story in the mind still captures attention in an addictive way, just because attention loves to go out.
