Marvelous!

We have been operating for so long on such simplistic notions of how the world works, what other animals and even things are and can do... When we traded in instinct for intellect, maybe we also lost a sense of the connectedness of everything, of the wonderful intricacy of all that connectedness. That's what was left behind in the Garden of Eden, along with being provided for, with not having to be responsible for our own lives and livelihood: that sense and the sensation of being part of it...

Stuff and Nonsense

Once again, a person defining herself by her religion has prefaced her remarks to me on FB with, "I don't expect you to understand where I am coming from..." For some reason, I feel quite insulted by this phrasing. Her worldview, as she calls it, is easily encompassed by mine and I know just where hers settles in its own place in the Bigger Picture. There are many similar coves and mountain tops and plains and landscapes, all part of that borderless, multi-dimensional infinite Cosmic Jigsaw... Sign in to see full entry.

Pretty much this...

It isn't far off my own concept of life and being human and why we are here and how It all works... In fact, it is simpler than mine, so maybe truer. It will make sense to anyone who has progressed far enough to even consider the question. If it doesn't, that's all right, too. http://imgur.com/HzpEnTJ Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Hate Your Ego

Ego is simply one's self-image. It is damaged ego that is a problem, not having an ego. It's like a spiritual/emotional/mental skin that differentiates our personal mass of molecules and beliefs and talents and skills and everything else that we have, from the rest of the Universe. In the world we inhabit, it is important to have some kind of self-identity: the 'who' we are speaking to when we think, the center of feelings and creative impulses. We are born into a body that is all about ME! and... Sign in to see full entry.

This seems the most apt blog for this share:

Stupid is a choice, just like fear.

I think stupid choice and action is a condition that comes out of extreme frustration, desperation, and anger: It narrows the view to a kind of apathy towards reason, to seem always to be losing even when, to the best of your knowledge, you are trying to follow the rules. I believe the practical root of it is in a failure of the educational system that actually makes so many kids and adults reject learning itself, deny the validity of knowledge in favor of emotion-based notions of what's real...

Ascension

Ascension Struggling, striving, yearning towards the light, our passage isn't always seen by those in passing either way. We climb, we pause, we rest... and reach again... And though we dally here and there, or sleep a thousand years, or seem to die, we're rising, always-- rising to the Light... Sign in to see full entry.

All will be well...

I wrote this a year ago, and still, the reminder is useful... Do you ever forget what you believe? I read something today that reminded me to remember. It starts out, "Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room." I agree and I don't, as it goes on to say, "Nothing has changed..." I understand how this is a comfort to many who would, without this reassurance, feel devastated by a death, experiencing it as the greatest, most final loss. But I have to go...

Eden: Abandonment and Loss

In the previous post, I wrote about the 'abandoment of Eden' as the time in which our human intellect outpaced and replaced instinct as our primary means of interacting with the world around us, particularly the physical world. I have suggested that choosing intellect and self-reliance was something to be celebrated, not to be ashamed of. But then, perhaps striding willingly, willfully out of Eden also cost us something. In that time, while we remained animals in form, our minds took us into a... Sign in to see full entry.

It's all in the framing

Tradition has it that Adam and Eve, tempted by Satan-as-serpent, ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and so were cast out of the Paradise that was Eden. Hence, the doctrines of the Fall of Man and Original Sin are justified. I say, they were framed! How a thing is framed in assumptions of what's the truth behind and around that thing determines how it is understood: the truth of the matter is based on those particular assumptions which themselves are strengthened and made...
