the big n and g words

Out I go a-walking; as I go I want to be out in nature which deserves a big n; yet it doesn’t care; there’s no reason to nature; it just does whatever is happening; nature built this structure I’m on. It’s the case; there is no doubt in my mind n has built many structures in other star systems.

There’s a special hill I’m walking by and I’m looking up its steep and curving slope, and I pass it by for now.

As I go it seems I’m beginning to notice everything and sense the life under my feet and on the surface and above me in the leaves of trees. I think of how the DNA code in my every cell is designed to work like all life on earth and as I consider this, there’s the feeling of non-separateness.

After these thoughts, I’m relaxed and taking it all in and ready to face society with a more positive attitude and will be able to better enjoy it by paying more attention.

Later, I think about how I was told a human body is made of the most common elements of the universe. I feel a part of everything when I stop thinking and start a simple noticing.

My animal supports me and balances me as it moves me across the face of our massive home while gravity (should have a big g but it doesn’t care) is responsible for everything. 

Is gravity the only viable candidate for pulling off the Big Bang and for our present state?

discrimination

Does life use of all of its faculties to change? Might all of this sensing be the universe perceiving itself?

Our bodies give us powerful discrimination skills. Is the ability to discriminate our greatest tool? Do we take being human for granted? What is it to be a perceiver?

Is the word discrimination being discriminated against

able to carry on

Can time and space exist without each other? Do they
come as a type or form of super synergy?
Do they create each other?
Is it time and matter
instead of time
and space?
Or are
the two
part of something else?
A stage fitting almost all of a stage’s definitions?

A setting for what? Life?
Of course this is
looking
back.
Is it
good
we can’t
know for sure there’s no
purpose for which the universe came into being?

Is being able to carry on not knowing
for sure about a lot of things
the best part
of life?

Why is
every future
created in the present?
Is it because the future can only
be built and happen in
the nowness?
Or never
happen
at all?

age-old questions

Here’s an adventure having to do with
one’s identity by answering
the age-old questions…

Who am I?
and
Why am I here?

Who am I? I’m the one asking
this question: I am
an identity.

Why am I here? I’m here as the representative
of the human being who created me,
and I respond to the name this
smart being was given,
and I also do the
choosing.

That’s it.

my best guess

Is it that life doesn’t worry whether or not it will ever be fully understood? What is life’s greatest concern? Is it the desire to survive long enough to create? What do we humans desire most? Isn’t there more than the above concern?

Most of us desire to keep breathing, drinking, eating, sleeping, dreaming, working, loving, creating, exploring, playing, doing good, doing bad, being lazy, drawing pictures, punishing, being punished, rewarding, being rewarded, collecting, communicating, inventing, as well as storing up stuff in order to survive harder times and as well as dying, etc.

It might but shouldn’t come as a surprise that these above actions are the same actions our cave-dwelling and tribe-member ancestors spent their time doing. Did they also daydream? My best guess is yes. Perhaps even before inventing language with its subjects, verbs, objects, etc.

truth doesn’t care

Why do we use our biases quickly, and without a lot of conscious thinking, and use only parts of the information which harmonize with our beliefs, and then use it to establish or decide what is right and wrong?

Once we have an opinion or belief, it’s our nature to want to hang on to it because it feels so good to be without a doubt, right, correct, in the know and on the way.

We add new information when it comes along if it compliments what we already think or believe. And it’s rejected if it conflicts with what we already think or believe. We are all guilty and can change this by becoming more aware.

Science calls this confirmation bias, and confirmation bias gives us reasons to form alliances with like minded folks.

Is it that truth doesn’t care
if it’s recognized
or not?

In the entire universe
can only life
care?

father of the universe

Would a best religion be agnostic-based and be loved because it provides a way to approach the universe to discover what is available to us as humans?

Can the universe be approached? Can an offspring approach its parents? Who are our parents? Are parents dwelling in every living cell and supported by the tools of the universe: electricity, a mass of chemicals, awareness, and creativity?

Does life spring up relentlessly without reason?

Is it probable the universe has no sensing mechanism to lead it to create an interest in any of its life forms? As  analogies, is energy the father of the universe, matter its mother and life its spirit? End of story?

Will no religion or gods be there to punish or reward us when we die? What makes this result as close as one can get to a sure thing?

After we die, what of us will be left to punish or reward? Is the soul a religious invention and used as a magical power wand? Where will all of the thousands of judges come from to pass judgment? (A judge and a heaven and hell for each set of religious beliefs, except for the Buddhists who don’t believe there’s a supreme being.)

Does believing in magical ideas and magical beings make them real? Or is organized religion a sincere and unmentionable hope-fest? Is it one or the other?

always

Is life a series of gettings and givings? A series of decisions made up of refusals and grantings?  Can one give oneself the gift of more time by becoming more aware, by taking more notice on purpose?

When I’m thinking, am I distracted from what’s going on around me to some extent? To observe deeply must I be silent?

How to spend time? Is now always the time to do what needs to be done? Does everything that is, have to be?

Where does time happen? Only in the now? Is there any other place? When does time happen? The present? Is there any other time? How does time happen? Is it that time doesn’t happen, it just is? Is it not linear but vertical and everywhere?

Is the real, here and now, and the not real, there and then? Is everything humming but we can’t hear it? Is time always an individual experience?

Is always so powerful a word that it should always be used carefully? Will the earth always be turning? Always seems to be at its best when used with questions.

Thanksgiving

In the beginning there was just one thing we are told. Then an uncountable number of the tiniest of parts which naturally coalesced into pieces of matter, and then more coalescing made larger and larger pieces, and as the large pieces became larger, the stronger the coalescing became.

We humans are the sophisticated products of energy and awareness—thanks to gravity, the key ingredient. Could gravity be the most crucial of all things?

What should we be thankful for this Thanksgiving? Is there anything greater or more necessary than the nature of the attraction stuff has for other stuff? Are we more thankful for lesser things while the real deal is holding us and all else safely to the earth? 

The dictionary definition of consciousness is the ability to respond to one’s environment. Does this mean all life is conscious to a degree? Is our planet just one more showcase of what a sweet spot and randomness can become?
