I really liked the things you guys talked about. The water droplet analogy was really mind opening!
There really is a lot of freedom and a ton of leeway with these things to me. There are so many possibilities that we have conceptualized as humans,
there must be countless more that we aren't even aware of.
I really can't add much to the what is God question. I sort of put that one on the shelf. I try to be at peace with my own subjective understanding
of God, that being whatever I was taught to believe.
I do relate most to the idea that we come to earth in order to face
challenges and limitations. I don't know what I think as far as if we do it because we are (spiritually) bored or if we do it in order to evolve, or
if we do it because we have no choice. I am not sure any of it is truly necessary. I'm not sure if existence itself is even necessary.
As far as Earth, I just think that the sheer amount of close minded people completely overcome by their ego's just kinda turns the world into a
spiritual joke of sorts (could still be a good joke). Sometimes I just have to wonder maybe we are all here for the sake of humor. I do realize
though that the joke could be on me just as much as anyone else.
It's not that I think I'm enlightened, but hey it doesn't take a whole lot to simply listen every now and then and catch on that there is something
more to life than what we are brought up to believe, and more to it than keeping up with the Jones'. You know what I mean... I realize I've at
least opened my mind a bit, and that's really not too much to ask of anyone.
The difference in me and most people is that I find humor in their lives, while they find problems in mine. Edit to add: It's not that I think one
or the other is right, it's just sorf of the difference in how I see things and how they seem to..
