Questions and comments:
Sechel/mind might be seen as a reaction to things...
Sechel understands there is a way, 'one is supposed to go...'
Sechel says, 'the world is not a jungle. It was made by the Creator that provides for all the creations. And you don't need to become an animal to make your way in My world...!'
And this sechel is rooted in the soul before it came to be dressed into the body.
And sechel pursues the truth by its own initiative.
And it gets dressed into the brain and operates on that level too.
Human sechel sechel says, 'there is a meaning to you being here. And the physical world has a reality beyond what can be measured. I am meant to live here, because He put me here, not because I happen to be here.'
There is significance in the physical.
Sechel is always asking and addressing, 'why did God create me?' This is a hidden wisdom in the human framework. It is a quiet inner pursuit.
The response to boredom is not distraction, action or competition. These things are just attempts to ignore the hidden wisdom of sechel...
