Henry Templeman, thinker and writer about issues concerning all humankind, does not identify to any belief, faith, ideology, philosophy, or teaching. He identifies to NOTHING. It is from this unfiltered perspective that he describes some of the most important issues concerning people in the world today, including what is love, death, intelligence, freedom, relationship, happiness, meditation, and God. In 2013 Templeman began to explore these issues from an unbiased and undistorted perspective by completely discarding the whole of human knowledge, opinion, and belief. This was the first and last step that brought about an unexpected insight that unified these issues into an undivided whole, and revealed what brings an end to all forms of psychological conflict, hurt, struggle, and sorrow in a manner that does not take time and depends on nothing. Most importantly the insight opened the door to an extraordinary field of existence outside the limitations of time and thought, which is unlimited, timeless, and therefore sacred. It was this "sacred other" that inspired Templeman to write about it in a diary. The entries of his diary are published in sections under "Writings". He continues to keep a diary today.
1073. A storm was brewing off the coast and dark clouds hung over the horizon. The room was quiet. Deep, rich shadows filled all the nooks and crannies in the walls and furniture. The flow of thought subsided and the mind fell into a natural quiet and silence. The mind was alert, listening without effort, watching without picking and choosing. The silence emptied the brain. It gave the brain a thorough bath and cleansed it. The silence continued well into the night and the following morning. The ego is cunning, deceptive, manipulative. It is the cause for every conflict and misery of man. It is mankind's greatest demon. The ego cannot be tied down, put on a leash, or controlled. It cannot be controlled because it is the controller. That means any movement of the ego only serves to sustain it. It cannot be controlled, however it can be watched. If it is watched without motive, hope or judgment, then the ego does not move. It is the very act of such watchfulness that stops the ego in its tracks. Do it now, and notice how this simple act blocks the entire activity of the ego. See how it halts it. See how it prevents the mischief, the ignorance, and all the mental misery that goes with it. The awareness of this fact makes the brain intelligent. It sees what ends the ego, and reveals a way to approach the whole of life that knows no hurt, no struggle, no sorrow of any kind.
