"I can feel it coming
In the air tonight
Oh lord ..."


And now for something completely indifferent ...

Can you close your eyes and have vision?
Can you stop your mind so you can think?
Can you feel outside your senses?
Can you imagine what you already know?

The following is but a passing possibility ...
Tis nothing but a nonsensical breach ...
Tis by all accounts a dream without sleep ...
A fleeting whim ...

So should you feel adventurous or bored ...
Take this trip along me for the giggles ...
And stop all thoughts ...
And close your eyes at every opportunity ...

And imagine this ...

Imagine there is a sphere ...
This sphere is dark like a black ball...
This sphere is devoid of light ...
This sphere is real ...
This sphere is what we perceive as our universe ...

Now imagine if you could ...
That you could step away from your own forest ...
Step away from your own dark sphere ...
So you can observe your own dark bubble ...
Away from our dark universal forest ...

And when you do ...
You notice this ...

That the dark sphere which we call our universe ...
Is enveloped by another sphere ...
There's another bubble surrounding our dark bubble ...
And it is made of light ...

A light so bright it is blinding ...
A light so bright and so beautiful ...
A light to end all lights ...
A light that is more your true self than your true self ...
More all of our selves than our true selves ...
Our home light ...
Our beacon ...
Our way home ....
Our ONE ...

Now imagine the intelligence ...
The intelligence that made this so ...
So close yet so far ...
The obstacle it put before us ...
Our true self hidden in the self ...

What clue would it give us to make our way home?
What does it say?
What does it mean?

If you have come this far, perhaps you will consider this ...

There is a dark sphere ...
There is a dark bubble ...
And it is enveloped by light ...

How do we know?

THE STARS!!!

If there was a dark bubble enveloped by light ...
And one, the one, the intelligence, were to clue those who dwell in darkness that light surrounds them ...
He would make pinpricks in their dark bubble so that they could glimpse the light from the light that surrounds them ...

THE STARS

They are the pinpricks ...
So bright is the light that surrounds us that the smallest pinpricks of light, our stars, fill our dark bubble with light.

I have no idea if this is cosmospiritually true ...
But in a universe in which that which is outside of us is the path to that which is within us it is as true as true can get ...

Because in this case it is true of us before it is true of our universe ...
You know this ...
I know this ...
It is our primary knowledge ...

We dwell as tourists in our darkness ...
Surrounded by light we are so close to we can taste it ...
So close yet so far ...

Too good to be amateurs not good enough to be professionals ...
Existential limbo ...

I don't want to start any blasphemous rumors ...
All this is is a childish thought ...

But in this moment it feels right to me ...

What we see is what we see ...
The light ... the light envelops us ... and we know it is there because the stars tell us so.

The fire that erupts from such glimpses only tell a small tale...

Why do we question?

Why is there dissension amongst ideas?

Is there really an end all be all...

Such considerations are found in moments and discarded for other moments...

There is no tell tale star, merely an amalgam of glimpses into the past that inflects the present...and through those glimpses,. we see something that I am sure was unpredictable...we see our personal interpretation of how the current moment is.

The world can be summed up by a sigh...a shared sigh.

The universe can be summed up by a mutual consideration...or a momentary glimpse...such fleeting attentions can never be synchronized...but are worth retroactive considerations....

Much like the light of the stars...emitted millions of years ago but glimpsed tonight...

Nice Blog post Dog... I still visit it every now and then, it is the best place to catch some of your great threads... They get washed away on these boards too often.

Love the new Avatar as well!

The tell tale star is our Sun.
We seek to go to the stars yet we are aleady there.
We in this dimension are grounded in the base of the Universe.
What is truly within the light that is a star.
We speak of the colour of light yet what we perceive as is merely carbon.
Colour is an indicator of the quality of substance such a spectography used by Hubble to inform us
What is within the light that is a star that is hidden from us.
It is off of our limited senses range both physical and technological

This is what makes the universe such a crazy yet peaceful place, where we are has such importance in what comes ahead, in the grand scheme of things. great thread agree on all of it, no doubt!
