Without Perspective

To apply knowledge without perspective
Is to fire blindly a well designed gun.
Memorized data, static definitions of labels, justifications and obligations of dead reason.
These are ammunition for soldiers who are not required to think.
Soldiers with a predetermined mission to enforce orders of thought into what they understand and what they are given to look at.
No brief is necessary
Only a childhood of diligence and obedience before any liberating life experience ever has a chance.
They are afraid of the fact that we give reason to reason.
They are afraid of choice
And with good reason.

Reality of Experience

Reality continues to escape us
Though the experience is constant.
When the experience escapes us
Reality may be revealed.
Understanding reality through experience is like understanding binary code by watching a digital projection of The Wizard of Oz.

A Display of Nature

Our senses are not designed to perceive reality, rather to serve the function of experience in suspended belief.

Interest

Man shows more interest

in being served conveniences

than finding the value

in life experiences

Happy Philosophical Valentine’s Day

In this physical form

forgetting we are eternal

births a gift to forget

and live as a mortal

Nostalgia is the afterlife

of moments past cherished

without forgetting eternity

this experience would perish

Your love is a light to

fill my soul while we exist

nothing so substantial

would spawn from eternal bliss

Strength of Will

True strength is not achieved by decreasing sensitivity.

That is a mechanism of weakness.

True strength is achieved by the will to sense life in its entirety.

The Little Box

Oh how we wish there were an answer

An answer to fit in that little box

created by our own wishes and desires

We could carry it around with us all the time

like a warm and soft comfort blanket

rather than fearlessly experiencing what is

Choice and Result

Image

Free will is the ability/responsibility to choose.  It is not something that we have or have not, but something that is always there to varying degrees.  Choices are realized through awareness.  These choices are enabled or hindered by situational variables.  These situational variables are very much a product of choices made in the past.  The variable that determines the choices made is self awareness.  This is because most of what we choose is based on who we believe ourselves to be.  Think; “what would I do in any given situation” and you will see that it depends on who you understand yourself to be.  Therefore, it matters less to the well being of the situation, how many choices you have to choose from, than it does the ability to discern between those choices.  Focusing on self awareness seems to be the optimal way to bring about a collective existence which is capable of making better choices than our current model.

This process of awareness – self awareness – choice – result is much the same as a computer application that is designed to process data.  The application will become aware of the data, whatever the data may be, and process that data based on the programming of the application.  After the data has been processed, it will then become aware of the result of the processed data and continue the cycle.  One major difference between us and a computer application is that with ourselves, we can upgrade the application, as the application, with self awareness.  The problem is that our current applications are so busy and overwhelmed with processing corrupt data that it tries to upgrade and change the data to fit the application, which is backwards.  We must put our efforts into upgrading our application rather than blaming the current data which is a result of how the application has processed that data previously.

First there is a degree of awareness to the situation.  This awareness brings potential choices.  No choice is cared to be made until there is a degree of self awareness.  Then the choice is made which generates a result.  We become aware of this result and based on who we are, we make more choices which generate more results to be aware of.  If we are dissatisfied with the results, we must look within ourselves for the solution.

Awareness:  I see

Self Awareness:  I am

Choice:  I choose

Result:  I experience

Does God Exist?

Heaven, peace, God and all other things exist, just not by our definitions or expectations. When we expect nothing of these things and are open beyond our definitions, we allow these things to reveal themselves. It is our expectations that drive us to enforce the result we are expecting, leading us down an adventure/experiment full of lessons. It is all a ride to enjoy and we may choose any path.
