With all this branching off, all these different thoughts and actions, uniqueness seems to be a constant. Through life it seems we just choose what
kind of uniqueness and it brings some sort of satisfaction.
It seems like making a piece of art, being endlessly satisfied by doing so, only the art piece has to get bigger, better, more detailed, more unique,
more powerfully thought provoking, the kind of art that changes lives, the expression of a radical movement even.
Myself, my mind I should say, has the experiences of contentment and satisfaction, ambition, a thrill from accomplishment, a driving force for that
expression of uniqueness.
It really aint a bad life, because I perceive "good".. and good is like magnetically consistently sought after.
But the mind is also endlessly analytical, it wants to be "right".. so to further its goal for that chosen expression of uniqueness, its evolution
right?... so in that process you get wise to the situation and realize, what am I trying to say here...
this process of "non-process".. simply being... we'll simplify and say... you just have this urge to "let go" into something, or nothing.. some
great release that feels as instinctual as an animal's migration... in this zen realization it actually benefits your minds goals... you gain
clarity.. you balance yourself, etc.
I can't explain it.. but a good way I choose to look at is:
Everyone's trying to climb the spiritual ladder when really it is the ladder of the mind, the ego, the experience itself, and the spiritual is ever
present that need no ladder to climb... but detach itself from the need to. Don't climb.. just BE.
As you "evolve" spiritually.. further into that state of simplicity..pure being, that instinctual path.. you evolve.. you get wiser, more able...
the ego evolves and its not that you detach from your ego as you evolve, but rather detach from a limited perspective of it.
Say... you become more aware... an optimal functionality of the mind/body/ego etc or something else but none the less benefiting the ego... "I am
more then my body".. well thats great... then you can experience the uniqueness of the "more then your body".
We'll give another scenario... you posess some very pure state of being comparing to your current and say you can do some amazing things even though
you don't concern yourself with them.. you would be content just doing anything, it wouldn't matter, its all the same to you.. you could just sit on
a rock and meditate into that state of pure being but the state you are in is highly conducive to some higher expression... you are like a living god
in the world yet you spend your life "non being"... you're more natural state in combination with your combined wisdom, experience, and perhaps
some sort of training to reach that state has evolved your mind.
I am trying to make this more complicated then it is.
OK... so... you evolve spiritually of sorts...perhaps you reach a level where everything is a thought form you wish to engage, realities created like
daydreams, shifting around yet you choose to stay put for some higher calling of PEACE.
Its like you are given more power the less you even care about in simple terms. I kind of look at it like that. Like I am a thought like a floating
concept would be to my mind, i am such a thought in the higher mind of something else, a higher part of my mind. My mind is a unique fractal
expression of a higher mind, with a higher mind etc.. yet its all interlinked.
So much emphasis on this life which could just be a unique sound, noise, an artistic expression, a day dream to something else.
Our uniqueness to explore like those thoughts you wish to endlessly attach yourself to and analyze and shift. A round and round we go.
If I had to draw it, it would be an endless spiral that gets bigger and bigger conceptually only you are only perceiving the movement of the spiral
and everything you think and do is interlinked with the thoughts and actions of the reality before you and all it seems we are really doing it just
Making the experience more awesome... in the simplest terms. We can't help but learn, and that leads us to where we are..just further along the
endless path to realizing an eternal being.
Ok I don't know about you but this is getting too difficult for me to even explain to myself and I'm not sure i'm expressing this as concisely as
it appears in my mind. !
But uhh... yeah... totally man, I agree with that "stuff" in that I agree only that all things interesting are worth exploring and leaving
