Meaning , More or Less

 

All phenomena are real in some sense, unreal in some sense, meaningless in some sense, real and meaningless in some sense, unreal and meaningless in some sense, and real and unreal and meaningless in some sense.
— Robert Anton Wilson

 

If you believe that your life is the be all and end all of meaningful existence:
Imagine if you were a housewife in Tennessee how you would see your current priorities. An owner of a retail business in London would have a whole different set of priorities. So would an accountant in Madrid. A voudon priest in South America would see things totally different than any of them. For each of these cases, what is real, what is unreal and what has meaning and what doesn’t would be very different. This is not necessarily a measure of their spiritual progress or ours. It is just a case of the relativity of experience that most of us miss out on.
Yet in this kaleidoscope of experience we can change our perspective and find a totally different picture or several.
Blessings, G

Knowing What’s Important

 

“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this! And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, No. This is what’s important.”
— Iain Thomas

 

Most days my distractions have distractions. People either message or call or show up wanting me to make their priorities my own. I like to be helpful and to feel included so way too often I say yes or take the time and my own projects fall by the wayside. Not that I can blame others for all of this. The world calls to me and I long to partake of it. Things grab my interest and I follow their siren call. This can be a new website or a new area of endeavour or sometimes just pretty pictures and Face Book statuses. Sometimes in trying to cover as many directions with my awareness as possible I find myself not accomplishing anythng. Yet my heart will always be in far off fields or friends in low and hi places and pictures of natures or sunsets or of beautiful guys and girls or anyone of a number of other things. Still I can learn to say no to the world. As long as in doing so I don’t end up saying no to myself.
Blessings, G
