Although I think I have a firm grasp of what I’m saying. I must also acknowledge that I don’t really understand what I’m talking about. I know the following insights to be true for myself alone, but I wouldn’t be able to make any objective generalizations about them. Let your own personal experience test their validity:
- Allow truth and love to persevere throughout your entire being. Share the goodness and purity found deep within yourself freely and indiscriminately. This is something I’m still working on myself, and even if I fail multiple times each day it’s good to be aware of my slip-ups whenever I catch myself in the act because it helps me to recognize things I’m able to improve in my life.
- Only YOU, through complete self-disclosure of your inner truth, will come to know–or, at least get a slightly better impression of–what “it” really is all about in [your own, unique] life. All the rest is an obscure jumble of hokey pokey and associative compartmentalization…or whatever.
- My belief is that truth itself is absolute, unyielding, and unconditional. Trust in and identify with your own personal inner truth; this divine aspect of what you are–in essence, a soul. Allow yourself to be integrated into the universal flow of existence. This process will occur regardless of the complexity through which we might try to manipulate reality in an effort to feel content and secure under a guise of false conviction.
- As fallible, subjective beings, willpower may be the single most powerful tool at our disposal. Exercise it through purposeful determination and passionate activity.
- Life is a continual mode of participation: Nested within every moment in life is a new cornerstone of existence to utilize one’s full potential. Be decisive; assume responsibility for your actions, even when confronted with uncertainty but especially when following a path heading toward a likely (but ultimately indefinite) outcome.
- Living without expectation doesn’t mean living without any goals/plans/intentions. With or without a known destination, one needn’t be aimless in direction throughout life.
- To me, every single person is (and always has been) exactly the same distance away from absolute perfection. We aren’t all on the same page; we may not all be on the same path in life; we don’t all reach the same level of awareness…but we share the very same plane of existence nonetheless. What/how we look at things is borne of a point of view that creates the integral difference between sight and vision. Is it therefore not better to walk alongside one another instead of being caught up in trying to lead/follow other people in our lives?
- I think that we cannot fully come to know and understand the entire reach of our own sphere of influence (for better, or for worse) as individual human beings…But what does the world mean to us if the focal point of our own reality is centralized upon our own skewed existence?
- Our collective reality–as subjectively distinctive entities–is a wholly fragmented perception of existence. Each and every one of us holds a single piece of a puzzle, which–joined together–complete the big picture of life. In spite of what we know about why/how we share a common link, together we form a universal connection. Though we appear misshapen on the surface in relation to other individuals, conformity to external influences is a lost cause: Changing who we appear to be on the outside in order to fit in with those around us may seem counterintuitive because we cannot adequately comprehend the broader scope of reality. The “grand scheme” of things is presented to us through the interpretive filter of a fixed viewpoint.
- The mental focal point shifts between the recurring themes of life and death. The inevitable eventuality of death–whether it may come immediately or gradually–marks a certain, albeit indeterminate, endpoint for the individual’s experience of subjective reality. What implications about our purpose in life–about the very meaning of our own existence–does this signify? On what basis do we direct our nature of being?
- Consciousness is a multifaceted domain of being; a state of inward/outward symbiosis or a struggle between the spiritual and egocentric aspects of our mental personality. The ego strives to remain tethered to our identity by any means necessary…
- Tangible stability is no substitute for mental elasticity: Being spiritually anchored is more conducive to enlightenment than laboriously seeking out some physical foothold within a fluidly chaotic atmosphere.
- My simple explanation of reality is a paradox fractal. The physiological methodology of human perception literally “makes sense,” but I don’t really know anything…that’s okay with me, though.
