Everything is connected to everything else. I have a mind that is a vast unknowable something that is a piece of the vast Universe or whatever you choose to call it. And, it isn't that either!
The truth is, I don't "know" anything. An aspect of my mind(?), is also a vast pre recorded library of never ending sound bites "story" summaries from the past. None of these "stories" are actually true, they were made up by me in the past.
Most of the stories are untrue survival stories designed to have me often be an innocent bystander in the story. If I'm listening to the mind's first story or do this "bite", I make a choice to go along with it or not. If not listening to that "bite", I'm a puppet.
I often get to make amends after and I will to get back to what I call a good life..If I do not deal with any emotional turmoil I put into play, I and others suffer.
This is an exploration of what I hear my mind suggesting to me this morning. It's always something and I call that my life experience. It is getting simpler and better as I listen to my mind and realize, I am not my mind, I have one and I want to make better, kinder choices..
Life is what it is. and with attention and gratitude, you can have it be something else,
some miracle in your attention...
Unfair means I didn't get what I want, and is someone else's want..
I want it all and I dont care if you get nothing..I'm the center of the universe..and everyone acts as if that is true. Me too, with moments of rememberance...
Be grateful or pissed off...I do both and work hard for a quicker "Turn Around Time." After I make my amends, I feel good again...till the next time...over and over...lots of time to practice returning to a peaceful place again...a lifetime of this...
Thank You God(s), The Universe, The Void, The Dao and all the names that it ...isn't...
return to the home by allowing our thinking to become quiet
The simple state of knowing is our basic estate
we came with knowing.
What Is knowing?
it's a state of quititude
in that place we are empty, full and experience
A sense of home.
thinking on the other hand,
Is thinking about knowing
And only brings a distant idea about knowing.
Thinking always brings an experience of never quite enough,
An experience of aloneness and separation.
Thinking divorces us from Knowing.
knowing and thinking is a way of acknowledging
The gifts are Knowing and Thinking about knowing.
Connection and Separation.
Being and Doing.
We have both and can choose either and we do.
There's a simply little that tells the tale of existence
it goes like this, music please:-)
