The Divine Breathes

I walk among gentle giants
noble still beings
high wind in their hair,
in perfect communion
with earth and sky
Bodhisattvas with a hundred arms
slowly waving
now in sections,
now all at once
whispering eternal mysteries
eavesdropped through the keyholes
of civilized minds below

Theory #8

January 15, 2013

There is no truth other than what is felt.  This is why myths contain more truth than facts and science.

Theory #7

December 3, 2012

We should enjoy everything we do in life.  But due to our emotional constrictions, we avoid experiencing the depth of our conflicts.  Thus we hurt ourselves and others by choosing the superficial instead.  With enough constriction (emotional constipation) even simple things  become a burden.  Until nothing is enjoyable, except as a distraction.  Distractions then lead us to feel guilty, which leads to more distraction.  But in reality, with emotional freedom, everything is enjoyable.  Even work and chores, because we can feel the depth of positivism from things that may be superficially unexciting.

Theory #6

November 14, 2012

We are fundamentally irrational beings.  All of our logic has its roots in emotions, and never vice versa.  Everything exists in feeling.  Logic is a tool that can be used for guidance, for self-defense, attack, and as an escape.

As a great man once said: “you can be subjectively objective, but not objectively subjective.”

Theory #4

October 23, 2012

Nothing is neutral.  Everything we experience, everything we do,  every thought that we think, is either positive or negative to some degree.  With awareness we can detect this in each moment, and thereby guide and direct ourselves.

Theory #3

June 7, 2011

Everything we do should be done for nobody but ourselves.

True Spirituality

February 26, 2010

True spirituality is dwelling within oneself, wrestling with ones feelings and emotions, sorting out the positive and real from the negative and unreal.  We naturally love the positive and the real when we find it, and we naturally grow toward it.

But it has to be sought, and it requires facing a lot of painful crap, which is why for so many it’s easier to just go through the motions and hope that their superficial belief in God will do the trick in the end (it won’t).  Others find it easier to not believe in God.

Actually, whether one believes or not doesn’t matter.  I don’t hold a belief in God, but I have greater faith (by my definition) and spirituality than most religious people out there.  What matters is where the person’s heart is at.  Is it selfish and fearful, or giving and open?  Are we good to ourselves and others, or do we hurt ourselves and others?
