Excerpts From My Life
    #2636406 - 05/04/04 11:59 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

It is not I who speak; It is the Logos.
Existence will sometimes utter itself through me.
Somnolence, a deep absorption, a reverie...
The greatest secrets lie in regions of danger.
Let it be known, there is a fountain, that was not made by the hands of man.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Eternity appears NOW.

What in fact I Am,
is the reconciliation of Yes and No
lived out in total acceptance
and the blessed experience
of Not-Two.

Metamorphosis... (Osiris + Isis?)

Manifest! Awaken!

Everything is perceptual.

Each end carries the seed of a new beginning...
Death is but Birth to a new life.

HEN TO PAN - The One, The All

The All is Mind; The Universe is mental...

Step into your shadow.

-The Parabola Principle-
Nothing stands still- everything is being born, growing, dying-
The very instant a thing reaches it's height, it begins to decline.
The law of rhythm is in constant operation, nothing is permanent but change.
Nothing endures but change.

Seperate the Earth from Fire,
the subtle from the gross,
gently and with great Ingenuity.
It rises from Earth to Heaven
and descends again to Earth,
thereby combining within Itself,
the powers of both the
Above and the Below.

Contemplate that supreme moment,
when each sex infuses itself with the other.
One giving forth
And the other eagerly embracing.
At that moment,
through the intermingling of the two natures,
the female acquires male vigour,
and the male is relaxed in female languor.
This sweet sacramental act we celebrate
is shared in secret,
because if performed openly
before impure eyes,
the ignorant may mock
and the divine power
manifesting in both sexes
will shy away.

A madman is mad only becase you know not of what he speaks.

The key to creativity is in hiding your sources.

The above was taken from a notebook that I have kept as a sort of quasi-journal over the past few months.

-Thoughts on evolution-
Evolution requires radical thinking.
Evolution is beyond good and evil.
Evolution eliminates the weak.

..........

Think carefully and contrast the meanings of the words 'evolve, revolve, evolution, and revolution'.

Reality feeds on itself.
The motion is circular.
When you layer circles you make a spiral.
We are all on a DNA staircase of Creation.

Don't ever be afraid, not of death and not of life.

Would you really want to be consciously immortal?

To believe there is no existence after death is to have an unbalanced perception of Reality.

Truth is plural.

Every rebellion unconsciously imitates exactly what it is rebelling against. That's why nonconformists are all alike...

Language is a lie we cannot do without.

Thanks...

I also have like 10 pages of information that I wrote down in a frenzy during this very intense fever that I had in which I was crazed and delusional. (<--loosely termed)
It's all about different dimensions and the nature of the Universe. At the time, I felt like it was being transmitted to me.

I may post it soon, but it's gonna take awhile to transcribe..

Lemme know if you are interested... it may inspire me.  :gonzo:

I like that.

I'm struggling with the Trinity and with plurality and navigating thru triangulation

Nice! A lot of those reflect some of the ideals I had in my journal, although mine is more personal.

I forgot where I got it from, but it's a simple representation of the Ouroboros that is meant to speak to the unconscious.

If you want to learn more about the Ouroboros, search Google with the keywords "Carl Jung Ouroboros".

Okay I did it for you, here's a good explanation:

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Ouroboros

Jung defined the ouroboros relationship to alchemy thus-

  "The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e.of the shadow. This "feed-back" process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilises himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolises the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which...unquestionably stems from man's unconscious."

Coolness. Thanks for that. The reason I was asking, and this will sound pretty weird probably, is that I created something like that the other day. I found a preying mantis eggcase and clipped the small branch it was on, then I attached it to a plant in my yard that has aphid problems. I attached it with a garbage bag tie.

Well after a storm the branch fell off and while trying to reattach it the egg case came loose and fell off and I couldn't find it! It was small, brown, and the ground where it fell has brown earth and wood chips. I looked for a long time and while I was doing that I absentmindedly twisted the white tie into a shape like your avatar. I placed it under the rose bush and (here's the weird part) intended to sleep on it and experiment with remote viewing at night using the round tie I made for orientation.

So anyway, that shape has really burrowed its way into my subconscious because of my mind experiment and then I log on and see it in your avatar! Pretty trippy.  :mushroom2:

I like this. The reconciliation of yes and no. Lived out in total acceptance. That's really what life is about, isn't it? Accepting the yeses and the nos, and living your life in a way to work with and around each. I don't understand, though, "the blessed experience of Not-Two."

Very nice.

I totally agree, and this is very funny, too. And to what degrees of madness? When Einstein spoke of his theories, initially, was he considered mad by some? The schizophrenic...well, even if we knew that of which he spoke, he would still be considered mad because it is all in his mind. Einstein's theory came from his mind, but based on what he observed outside himself.

Ah, but what if what makes him 'mad' is him seeing what common man has learned to skim pass and therefore IS making observations outside of himself, but man simply does not share his perception. The truth can be very damaging to those who aren't warriors.
