This is an extension of my last post into this subject:
Do you ever wonder, or reflect, on how odd it is how surrounded we are by metaphors?
Just now I was reflecting on the earth, in space. Biolife on the earth, from which we arise. And with us, we feel "in the earth", as it were, the
physicality of our body.
Yet we are as empty and above it as the earth is living and moving.
In case you didn't notice, our cognitive awareness = space, while our embodied experience = earth.
But then I thought....again, about fear - because I've been stressed, my body's all off, I haven't been working out - etc: clearly my serotonin,
"my internal regulator juice" is down. So I'm feeling a little naked before my suffocating thoughts.
But love, again, I said to myself, although FEAR helps expose the true power of love, they aren't symmetrical. One really does favor - eventually,
the overriding power of love.
And then I though, oooh, that's interesting: the heart is tilted to the left side. Screw the biological reason! Clearly, the heart, where we feel and
experience = Love. And the left side of the body, as we know, feeds to the right part of our brain: the part of the brain which essentially processes
non-linear dimensions of experience like emotion. But why the tilt? The imbalance? The asymmetry?
Why does life take the forms it takes - and why does it tease us with these profound associations: the heart on the left, ones fear of death,
suffering, and the essential need to believe in the power of love?
These are profound associations that no one can take away from me. I truly do believe they intimate some deeper, non-linear, mystical, flow-like, a
cosmic imprint that we can never 'know' or totally figure out, but to always, still, be amazed at how life often presents itself to us.
I mean, the reasons could be reduced to the biological: but they also, necessarily, feed upwards towards the existential.
The banal and the profound: harshness, carnivorous creatures, death, suffering, natural disasters. And yet amidst this melee is a bipedal ape like
creature that can see such patterns wonder, curiously, asking "what is this world saying to me?"
