I’m not sure where I’m going with this blog post just yet. I’m truly undecided what the story will be. But, that is exactly the energy I’m looking to work with today.
So much “information” or DIS-information is out there! My goodness how does one discern?
Well, no matter what I ever say, I’m telling a story. One way or another I express a thought form, idea, belief construct to you, for you to discern using consciousness or lack there of. So let’s just play today.
There are a few things I repeat as Dogmatic mantra’s these days. Whether it’s with Yoga students, or an old couple on a nature walk with me. Or maybe a medicine journeyer who is having a first experience of Unity Consciousness.
> Interactions with ALL things ARE interactions with SELF…
> Energy flows where Attention / Intention goes…
> We ALL have the responsibility to weave our OWN myth…
> It’s not what you do, but HOW you do what you do that determines whether you are fulfilling your destiny…
Little pokes at my own consciousness and those of other children of the realm that I’m so honored and blessed to be in communion with.
My belief is this: the truth is whatever you believe, no matter what you believe.
The truth is everything you don’t believe.
No matter what story we fall for as individuals, we are never wrong in what we believe.
We are truly creators of the world we experience.
Or co-creators if you like. All depending on your perspective. Or, maybe you are simply victim to it all. Having no power at all is the power you choose to create and experience.
Ontology is great as philosophy. AS A PHILOSOPHY!
A great example I remember during Undergraduate studies is as follows:
1. By definition, God is the greatest possible being that can be conceived.
2. God exists as an idea in the mind.
3. A being that exists as an idea in the mind and in reality is greater than a being that exists only as an idea in the mind.
4. Thus, if God exists only as an idea in the mind, then we can conceive something that is greater than God.
5. But that we can conceive a being greater than the greatest possible being that can be conceived is a contradiction.
6. Therefore, God exists.
Does it matter? This is simply an a priori demonstration of God’s existence.
But, how can the existence of anything follow from a definition or clever logic?
Wisdom always leads to contradiction. Even more, knowledge limited to the physical world and bounded by the shortcomings of our five senses is not the can opener to freedom. Unless the belief structure you are operating under dictates so.
Everything is consciousness. A sleeping consciousness and an active consciousness are just two expressions of the same infinite consciousness.
Our minds are so powerful, we can imagine ourselves separate from All That Is. Does that make it so? I always answer this yes and no. Same as any question.
But as a matter of honoring the experiential nature of ourselves, maybe we can be elegant and add some discernment and purpose to our lives in such comprehension of the multidimensional aspects of self.
Everything is story. Blah blah blah… just story. Mark England always follows this up with, “so write a good one.”
Most often the stories we live by are elaborate prisons for our mind that we’ve constructed. That WE’VE constructed.
I don’t say this to diminish the joys of being the sentient, beautiful, creative Being that you are, but in desire of offering a metaphorical turnkey to yourself. A turnkey for yourself that is a gift to all the other parts, aspects and imaginations of yourself out there.
Add another feather to your cap in the knowing of your unfathomable nature.
I offer that your ideas are but stepping stones of the infinite ladder of yourself to the infinite ladder of yourself. Not a typo.
Don’t hold onto them too tight, but simply make sure they are secure enough for you to stand on and leap to the next stone / ladder rung of your infinite self.
Having a hard time finding the next step?
Here are some questions to ask yourself….
1.) Who am I?
2.) Why am I here?
3.) Where did I come from?
4.) Where am I going?
If you find religiosity helpful, here are a few great pointers I’ve come across.
Greek: “The human soul is, fundamentally, everything that is.”
Hindu: “Thou are that.”
Christian: “Every other being takes only a limited part of being whereas the spiritual soul is capable of grasping the whole of being.”
Jewish: “At opposite poles, both man and God encompass within their being the entire cosmos. What exists seminally in God unfolds and develops in man.”
Islamic: “Who knows his soul knows his Lord.”
Still these are just ideas, just story as well.
What’s your story?????
Love you All!! Hope this resonates with a few of you nutters out there. If not, throw it out and start again. So many story’s and only ONE YOU…
Live it, Love it, Dream it,,,,
