The first truly human or humanizing stage of development is for us to transcend our dissociative emotional reaction to the inherent limitations of the body-mind and its experiences. It is only on the basis of a body-mind that is free of the conception and motivation of existence as a dilemma that the actual Realization of Truth can be founded. It is not the problem-solving exercise of mind or psyche that Realizes the Truth, but only the relaxed openness or tacit suspension of mind, psyche, or attention itself permits that Realization. It is not the strategic exercise of the body, or the total body-mind, that Realizes the Truth of the body-mind, but only the relaxed openness or tacit suspension of all contraction, all knowledge (or "knowing about"), and all self-possession permits that Realization.

Therefore, the human individual must grow into an understanding of himself, such that the reactive programs of knowing and acting are transcended in a tacit Realization of the Transcendental Condition in which the body-mind is arising, floating, changing, and passing away. The actual or Realized Truth is not itself an answer to the emotional dilemma of our existence, since we must transcend that dilemma as a precondition for Realizing the Truth. And the Truth is not an escape from the limited mortality of the body-mind, since neither mind (or psyche) nor body is made immortal by the Realization of the Truth.

The "Truth" that we seek (and sometimes claim to find) on the basis of our trouble is an invention of our own. The "Truth" that is proposed as an "answer" to the conceived dilemma of existence and that seems to represent an escape from the mortal limitations of the body-mind is itself nothing more than a state of the body-mind.

The actual Truth of our existence is simply the case. It is not an answer to a question. Indeed, any question (or emotional dilemma) must be an obstruction to the Realization (or clear and direct intuition) of what is always already the case. A disturbed and strategically active state of mind and body cannot discover the very Condition or Truth of the body-mind.....
