Control
    #11376779 - 11/03/09 02:46 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Who is the controller of what we do?

What power does the mind have in dictating what should be done?
Is it our consciousness, mind, or spirit that let our actions flow out from within? Or are they interconnected?

What does this body represent?

Who is speaking and who is listening?
Should the speaker tell the listener what to do or should the listener do what shall be done, or should there be a balance between the two?

Ultimately, who is experiencing and who is the one commenting on the experience....or is one the notion of the other?

Everything that comes to us and through us, is that from us or from a greater source that is channeling itself through us? So these words, are these my words or words from a source that I am connected to? Are there different sources that apply to different people or just people's ability to utilize their source?


Let me know what you think collective mind of shroomery!

You can be the only ultimate controller....its just a question of whether or not you are sleeping at the wheel, or letting someone else steer from the side.

Action follows thought which follows your conditioning. The mind does all of this, but it is only through your consciousness that you can become aware of how your mind faces reality. Consciously, you can watch yourself and what you do, and through that gain understanding. Understanding is the only way to change your actions.

My belief is that the physical body (any physical life form) is the universe attempting to sense itself. Our surroundings encourage our bodies to grow in certain ways....form certain structures. If it weren't for the presence of light, we would not form eyes. If it weren't for the presence of weather and harsh materials...we would not form skin. Our bodies represent the physical relationship we have with the universe.

The speaker and the listener are the same. How can you listen when you are speaking....and how can you speak when you are listening? You can be aware that you are speaking...and after you have spoken, you can remember what you said. But the only way to actually listen is to be entirely quiet. When both the listener and the speaker, which are the same person, understand what should be done, then there is action.

Ultimately...you can't separate yourself from your experience. Because even the experience of being aware of experience, is an experience. You are the sum of your experiences. Your awareness is what you are experience in the immediate present. Even what we call "memory", is still a present experience of your neurons accessing stored information. There is no separation.

If it comes through you...is that not you? You are defined by what comes into you, and what comes out of you. That is all there is. You are not one, stable entity, but one that flows from on moment to the next in a constant state of change. If you speak words, they are your words. What you do, is your own doing. If you try to say otherwise you are just fooling yourself. This is why I find it funny when people say they speak with Jesus, or God, or Allah, or Buddah, or whatever spiritual being the think they are in contact with.

If you are contacting something "inside of you" then, by definition it is already a part of you! People just choose to call it something else because they believe that they are separate from their experiences and from the universe. But that separation is entirely an illusion.

All of this is simply my opinion. :cheers:

All of us are controlling, speaking and experiencing, through this body which is in connection with everything.
