Condensing It All Into... This
There is no such thing as 'life'. Our so-called 'perception' is but a tiny, tiny glimpse into a knowledge that escapes or again, so-called understanding' pf what is and is not. As we move from place to place we see that our environment changes as so the appearance that we have moved comes about. Let me be the first to tell you that there is no movement and you have not moved one iota.
Standing still we provide the opportunity to take a moment, a breath of life and contemplation, so that all in our purvey may be reflected upon. To see is to know an in knowledge we tend to gain insight so that our future actions may come into greater alignment with our beliefs. It's a nice plan and I would not take that away from you.
Stumbling upon the rocks and shoals of existence our definition tends to further resolve it's self into specificity. By defining our selves we tend to take pride in our existence, kind of like which came first the chicken or the egg.
Though there is no growing old, there is a sense of maturity which develops seemingly beyond our years and knowledge. Creeping up as it does we can become blindsided by our own ignorance. We simply cannot know the entire universe and so relegating our selves to our little selves, we attempt to know.
How is that working out for you?
A fallen angel is still a fallen angel.
Why put lipstick on a pig?
