Indisguise Posted November 22, 2022 Share Posted November 22, 2022 First thoughts I wonder if I'm going to pull this through. Pull what exactly through? Not like there's an end goal or something. But I guess the path is indeed the goal, so - what is that path? Guess I'll find out as I'm walking it lol. How else would you find out? Been lurking, kinda. Never really had any strong diesire to journal, but I definitely do have a strong desire to share, and so mabye this is one way of doing iut. Albeit a somewhat clumsy way, as the bandwith between "my thoughts" and "the keyboard" with which I'm typing is somewhat narrow. But let's see how this goes. Don't know if anyone is ever going to read this, I guess I'd be kinda happy about that becaues I want to share, but if not, I suppose that's fine too. There's just tons and tons and tons of stuff that I want to explicate, to myself, mostly. But also to others, sort of as a projection I suppose to let it bounce back off of them to me, show me what I'm thinking. I guess part of this is going to end up in a book. Already have a title. It's going to be a synthesis from everything I know and learned, philosophy, religions, psychology, natural science, anthropology, social sciences, literautre, etc. I'm still fairly young and I feel so priviledged and lucky to be in my position, I'm still a fool but I'm also not. What I know, I need to share. Share, not force upon. I sometimes feel very insipred by those who came before me. I'm very well aware that I'm standing on the shoulders of giants and the only reason why I can look so (comparatively) far is because of them, I owe them. And who are "they"? Well of course, they're: culture. We owe culture its betterment. Whenever there's a person who is priviledged by their culture, it is their responsibility, and noble duty to pay the culture back in the form of wisdom, love and understanding. Anything else would be a waste of potential. You are a force for good and it's your responsibility to act on that force, otherwise you are passively contributing to the baseline existential condition that is decay and chaos, speaking of course from the perspective of culture which is defined by a certain set of boundaries and which needs to maintain these boundaries. You are not here to maintain the boundaries of culture. You are not here to tear down the boundaries either. You are here to be the transforming force that tears down and then rebuilds, in a better way. Balance the forces of good and evil in your own heart, act upon the best of your abilities and accordsing to your conscience and don't beat yourself up when you fail, which you will, but don't blind yourself from failing when you do either. You aren not here to be the recluse Buddha, the Pratyekabuddha who upon his enlightenment vanishes into Nirvana, never to be seen or heard of again. You are here to be the Bodhisattva, the Christ. who upon his enlightenment returns from the mountain top into the village and shares the gospel, the good news. Unite the forces of nature and culture in yourself. Unite the absolute and the relative, play the game and get involved in everyday life in full consciousness of the divine, the shared knowing heart of every man, woman, child, animal and plant, the Lila, the play of God. However, you'll also forget. Like, everything. But: that's fine. You'll forget, because you are love. And to love yourself so deeply is to let yourself forget completely. It's perfect, there's no flaw in this whatsoever. And you know/are it, hence you are where you are. Go on my child, and play. Forget yourself and when you've played enough, come back home. There you'll be greeted by the love that sent you out the house, the door of which was always open kept for you to love yourself anew. (I just made this up on the spot, hope you can appreciate it 😁❤😂) We could use so much more wisdom in our culture. So much more awareness. So much more love. Who's gonna do it? Who, if not you?
