A Pattern Break # 901

glhamMind is a pattern.  Break it.  Here are a few of thought-hammers for you:

1. While not everything is permissible, everything is forgivable.

2. Silence is the ultimate form of self-expression.

3. Just like there is animate and inanimate matter, an argument could be made that there is animate and inanimate space. Look around you – the space you see is inanimate. Now, look inside – the space that you see is you. Put differently, consciousness is a space that is aware.

I hope three thought-hammers will do.
