Human Beings … Information Processing Units

Written by Master Charles Cannon


I have often said that human beings are information processing units, and this also applies to all forms of life — all forms of consciousness.

 As instruments of consciousness, we are programmed to gather information through experience.  Furthermore, we are programmed to process our information and grow resultant developmental self-awareness in the process. One could say we are wired to look outside of ourselves and to be objective in our focus. Furthermore, until we evolve to a certain level of self-awareness, we are just robots (automatons of consciousness), acting out our programs and playing our software.

Radically Expand Holistic Awareness

Written by Master Charles Cannon


Your robotic control center --  your ego --  doesn’t like to relinquish its control to holistic awareness. So, what does it do?  It distracts you.  It makes you fidget.  It makes you twitch in one way or another.  But if you can rise above your robotic-ness through the principle of balance, your ego will begin to yield to truthful experience.

The Secret to a Joyous and Blissful Life

Written by Master Charles Cannon


It is most important for us to understand how life operates.

What Is Your Essence?

Written by Master Charles Cannon


Do you really feel one with everything or is this just a concept for you?

Even though it is easy to see other human beings, for the most part, we still do not recognize that we share and are empowered by the same life force.  We do not recognize consistently our unity of essence.  When we take this beyond human beings, beyond the world of what we regard as living things, it becomes even more difficult to recognize oneness.

The river longs to return to the ocean.

Written by Master Charles Cannon


“The river longs to return to the ocean.”
--Zen saying

“The river longs to return to the ocean.”  What nonsense!  Why would the river long to return to the ocean?  From a truthful perspective, it makes no sense because the river is the ocean, and whether or not it is aware of itself makes no difference.

Go With the Flow

Written by Master Charles Cannon


A tree that is unbending is easily broken.
--Lao Tsu

Forms of consciousness that are rigid in their illusory dominance are unbending, exclusive, and easily broken.  They have no holistic awareness, no truthful perception of reality.  They are but robots, automatons.
