IF WE THINK WE ARE SANE, WE ARE INSANE

If We Think We Are Sane, We Are Insane

If we think we are sane, we are insane.
If we know we are insane, we must be sane!

Gampopa: “May confusion dawn as wisdom”.

To know we are confused is to see:
pure intelligence is present.

A person is sane if they are rational and able to reason, and can analyse to a high degree of objectivity and logic, and can remain unemotional. If a person is even slightly influenced by personal emotions or cultural norms, their analysis may be termed irrational, due to the injection of subjective bias. We need a clean lens.

If we can only be subjective in our view – which is based on self-preservation – then logically, sanity isn’t present. When it comes to our ideas, we all know when we are being irrational but ignore it. For this reason, we get upset.

Simply recognise what the ‘self-image’ is doing, and be free. This may not be easy to accept as we are more familiar with our ‘self-image’ than with the pure sanity within.

When our normal becomes reliant on others’ irrationalities,
we give up free will.
