A Seed is Real

Any seed that has the potential to grow

is as real as you and I.

I was a naive hippie.

I once was a naive hippie who thought the plants and trees were more evolved in their nature because they were peaceful and I enjoyed their company.  Once I really got to know them, they showed me they were far more brutal than I and that they were strong enough to face the reality of the situation.  We humans have strange needs for irrelevant concepts and ideals that can only exist in our minds.  We are so afraid of being unhappy with things that we end up living in a desperate delusion.  What fools we are!

Facts in Motion

What is a fact?
A true fragment of a picture.
What do we do with facts?
We run with them, as far as we can.
Why do we run with them?
To change the picture.
Why do we want to change the picture?
Because it keeps changing on us.
Will the facts stay where you put them?
No. But the fragment is still true.
What will you do now?
Observe the motions.
… What do you see?
Emitting from all points, intertwining all others and flowing back into itself.
What do you know from this?
We can create nothing but movement.

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.

Everything perceivable is communicating with us

The ability to interpret it is our evolution.

Cause and Effect

The level of tyranny we experience is determined by the level of dependency we place outside of ourselves.  Tyranny is the effect, not the cause.
