think with me for a moment in imagination land, specially those who grew up in 80s and 90s
think upon being a child for a moment,
and take your time,
riding the memories between the lines,
remember how deep you could focus and pay attention,
and how full and rich and rewarding everything was,
how serious, sacred, and fun, all in one ,
i have this impression, that there is a really strange motion of minds here,
i remember this time, where people did not have to work unless they wanted to, they would just go wander into a temple and hang out with a holy man, and learn things, and be fed, and that was fine, nothing was expected of them,
i remember, studying mantras of the chakras,
i was a bit frustrated, why isn’t this working? he said be patient,
he had me working on just the root chakra mantra first,
what is so strange is now, those who are in any way interested in the “new age” , are using this internet, and doing things in their own homes that they used to do in temples, and i find t hat… just totally strange, and almost chaotic, but
supposedly it is so that we can serve the modern world, and bring it into order and peace and serenity,
give it peace of mind
----~~~~~~------ do you have memories of past lives,
i don’t mean like, I was really there, in fact I might say I was never with that man at all, because it is more like a story that my mind came up with, to make sense of things,
but it is connected to being at a baby-sitters house as they drew a picture of their black and white cat whiskers, and I remember the journeys and games we played,
----~~~~~~------ now, do you have REAL REAL memories of past lives, where you are certain, certain, YOU were there, just like you are now?
i am thinking about waking life, and while this does not have a real large “point” to it, the post serves as a portal of free-form responses, especially about nostalgia,
Waking Life, they mused, maybe past lives are just stored memories, maybe you are just sympathetic with someone who existed thousands of years ago, but that was never you,
you were somewhere else, or right here right now,
and i think, both are true,
and also I would not limit , “reincarnation” to that of planet Earth, rather, conscious migration from other planets, to come here and learn, too,
what do you ‘think’
and is there anything you ‘know’ or ‘feel’ or ‘re-member’ that you would share ?
i will make a bit of a cautionary tale,
but, some other time, some other place,
what makes you you ?
The ability to think,
what frees you from yourself ?
The ability to cease thinking,
what cleanses your soul ?
abandoning thought, and feeling,
and getting in touch with the bigger, deeper, more mysterious and gracious feeling, that is always there,
that does not think
in this paradox,
what makes you you ?
Your ability to be your own authority, and create your own stories , and have them come true,
so be you, use your mind, and focus in on what you want from this experience, in this body, make it good,
you have as many years left as you wish to have left, and as many experiences as you wish to create,
so find the honest place, and get straight
with yourself ask
why am i here, what do I want ?
there are people that might not ever ask this
and will just be pawns in someone elses dream,
supporting someone elses king, but did you know,
you can play your own game, masterfully?
