I have been doing some more contemplating/meditation and I have presented myself with another question that I have no clue what to think of it.Anyways
while I was reflecting I thought to myself a couple quotes...one from ATS's own Hidden_Hand a looooooong time ago:
"If you want to enslave a man,allow him to believe he is already free"
and a different yet similiar quote from "Be Here Now" by Ram Dass:
"You don't seem to understand,YOU ARE IN PRISON,if you are to get out of prison the first thing you must realize is YOU ARE IN PRISON,if you think you
are free,you cannot escape"
and one we've all heard before:
"Go with the flow"
Now taking all that into consideration,I started thinking and whenever I start contemplating I like to think of things in a "fractal-sense"...now if
the universe is so keen for experience and truely wishes that we all learn to just love each other unconditionally and cooperate why do we exist in a
realm with no oppurtunity for progress?Now sure there are still many others in the world living Life unaffected by the status of the World,and still
have a comfortable nice happy life full of experience and more experiences in the future,I like to consider these people "babies" of the universe,as
when any baby is born we wish to protect,nurture,and secure a future for them...very similiar,and most people in such a position usually even manage
to maintain childish characteristics.
Now there are the others of Earth who are homeless,fighting poverty and famine and escaping the situation seems almost hopeless...and the amount of
struggle and hardship we would have to face to get out of the rutt seems to be "Going against the flow" Think about it,if you were some homeless guy
on the street,you have NOTHING but all the time in the world TO YOURSELF,you have NO oppurtunity to experience the world and probably no chance of
ever changing.....but why???
I believe maybe because we have lived before...we HAVE experienced many many many things many many many times..."God" does not wish for us to
Experience "Life" anymore,but for some reason we are afraid to die and wish to stay and experience all the things we never experienced(unknowing that
we already have!)So we choose to stay here,and the only sigh "God" gives us to wake up is the lack of experience and how difficult your dreams and
wants are to acquire.
Another thing I was tripping on..Lets just say that we are existing in a "Grande Illusion",is it possible that our needs/wants/emotions are only a
trick into making us want to stay?For example when we are happy is when we are most content like we have "not a care in the world" and when we hear of
something that can bring us happiness we will "go against the flow" to get it.In this Life that would be progress but on a Universal scale,it could
possibly mean taking a step back.
So I have a tendency to not write that well but if anyone on ATS understood that replyreplyreplyreplyreply
