What is knowledge? Can thought be creative? Can a conditioned brain love? Meditation is not conscious, deliberate meditation, sitting cross-legged or repeating certain phrases. That is deliberate, conscious effort to meditate, which is part of desire. Q: I have had trouble understanding what you mean by creativity. Could you dwell on that a bit? Biologically we are different: you are tall, I am short, you are a woman, I am a man, but inwardly what are we? We are a series of memories. Q: How can you have freedom without knowing Jesus Christ? Q: Is it creativity when we are able to divorce ourselves from all the knowledge that has brought us to the problem? Note: a total of 39 seconds of missing video is replaced by audio only.
