Essence and Mirrors – A Few Random Thoughts Floating Down the Consciousness Stream

 

“What should I possibly have to tell you, oh venerable one? Perhaps that you’re searching far too much? That in all that searching, you don’t find the time for finding?”
― Hermann Hesse

 

In searching for the true essence of something, do we deconstruct it, reduce it to its component elements? In all the parts that make up our physical form, where do we find our essence… a doctor (or butcher) could dissect us in every way possible and still never see it… Perhaps to understand the essence of something, the trick is not to open it but to open ourselves…and find that in ourselves that relates…

True Mirrors, whether they be people or objects can either cause us unbelievable bliss or painful aversion..all depending on how well we can handle what is reflected back to us..

It’s not meaning that we search for as much as that something in ourselves that will help us know and understand.

Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – October 19 2011

“I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now”
–Bob Dylan

..and so I am. This past year I feel like I’ve de-aged, perhaps unlearned some things that might have helped me live one kind of life but not the kind I want to live now. I have been inspired, ignited and taught constantly, as much by myself as by others but so much from others and perhaps I’m finally gaining a sense of priorities. We’ll see where it leads..
A few goals for this next year:
1) I wish to delve into more how I relate to different archetypes. What does it mean to be a warrior? a teacher? a healer? How do I develop further, evoke those sides of myself.
2) Find more ways, preferably through my art and writings to bring more money in financially. Tho computer training is always good.
3) Meditate every day (for longer and longer periods of time)
4) Work on the difference between down time and wasting time.
5) More study time every day would be good also. Hmmm I may have to cut down on my FB time =)
