Center Of Life

Not too long back I had some mushrooms.. it had been a long while since I had any, and they were probably the strongest I've had so far.. thank god for Canada!  :laugh:

Anyways, I ended up laying down for awhile, and I started thinking about this or that... My thoughts quickly came to ask about the essence of life.. you know, basically, why? Maybe "what?" as well... hehe

I sort of came to the conclusion that, of course, it is unknown and won't be known. But that the more focus was put onto these questions, over time, with evolution, more and more would be revealed. If we look at the past, there was a time when we knew nothing... there was a time when these creatures we are, or at least inhabit, weren't even aware. That is, perhaps, until we decided to run our energy through them and experience through their perspective.... who knows. :grin:

I realized that some people never even face these questions. They are always there, of course, but they never face them, probably because of fear. Fear of the unknown. Anyways, it just sort of felt that avoiding the questions altogether would end up leading people astray from the essence of life and they would wander off into the desert of unawareness...

It also felt that the more one would keep in mind this essence of life, this unknown that is ultimately the greatest question we could face, that it would put everything into perspective, our experiences and our thoughts... that we would be in a position where we could begin to understand and become aware.

I also think that the more one would think through this perspective, the more aware they would become, and that more and more would be found out... what if one day, in whatever form we were in, all of life and this existance was understood, almost everything filled in and known, and all that was left of this unknown was a single yes or no question?

We as humans face a lot of different experiences and situations. There are a whole hell of a lot of us, well, relatively, and that there is a lot of common ground. A lot of us who even start to consider such and what is around us accept that "this is the way it is", they accept some sort of permanence about human nature and who we are... People sometimes say "We're humans, we are never going to get past killing each other", things along those lines.....

What we think creates the way we look at things and determines our actions. What you accept in your mind is going to have its effects. If we do not strive to continue life and unraveling its mysteries, if we do not consciously make the decision to promote the spread and the well-being of life, if we do not consciously face these unknowns and stop painting over them to make it more "comfortable" for us, if we do not become aware, we are going to hit a wall.

We've evolved to a point where we will not be able to continue on without appreciating life for what it is and consciously making the decision to carry on. If we do not make the decision to do so, we will fall. I really think it is going to come down to one moment where we have to decide.. probably at the brink of imminent destruction of us.

Exponential growth is a bitch. :lol:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

Yeah, the loops of nature are WHERE IT'S AT. :wink:

I mostly find myself thinking about how time-space works during a trip.. but that's usually after the "death and unknown" part, because the "death and unknown" part tends to really wake up my brain and get the flow goin'.

Very good..I liked that.

It's true..if you open your mind up to the question..The Mystery...you begin to see it.  The more aware you become...and the fact that you can mutually share the same experience with people from all walks of life with entirely different backgrounds opinions and psyches and so on...says quite a bit. :smile:

Good post. :thumbup:

Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death, and sweet as love.
