Did you hear the news today? Concerning the nature of reality, apparently, the more we find out, the less we know! The rabbit’s hole is deeper and darker than anyone could have previously anticipated, or imagined. For what was once a simple, basic existence, has since become a pandora’s box of russian dolls – and that’s the layman’s version!
If one were to converse with “the experts” one to one, one could be forgiven for concluding that life has pretty much been figured out and all is sure. When, however, one takes a step back and looks at the greater collage of discussions taking place, it is quite easy to see that nobody has a waking clue what they are talking about, nor what is known to be “on the other side”.
Everyone is so stern in keeping their eyes fixed in their own direction (The Left only sees the left, The Right only sees the right, and neither can see themselves looking at the same thing from different angles. The word “Man” and “fallible” seem to be completely interchangeable to me, and that’s not right. It’s not left either. That’s just how it is. Simple. Pure. Basic. Truth.
The real truth is that we each create our own lives and our own reality, here and now. Even the befores and afters are all created and re-enacted here and now, in the mind. It can be ascertained, though, that nothing escapes the moment. Nothing.
One would think that the past is concrete and set in the stones of time; and that what has been – has been, and cannot possibly change hence. The truth is that the past is simply how we perceive it to be. How we imagine it to be. How we “wish” it to be. How we choose to see anything, is how it becomes for you and I, in our mind’s eye.
We are a wonderfully fickle race of existents. Surely after sharing this tiny bubble for so long, we should have finally figured out and actualised the road to peace, love and unity by now. Of course, the previous statement is only true if we are indeed the advanced, evolved and enlightened species we are told to think we are.
Y’know, sometimes I wonder if the real reason the bees are being annihilated is so future generations have nothing to compare the copycat system of the human race to… this also does not leave me with much hope for the fate of our tiny neighbours, the poor unfortunate ants.
So, whether you choose to create your own life path, or decide to follow another’s, the choice is always and completely yours. How you choose to experience any given situation, “passed”, “presented”, or yet to be, is always and completely your choice. And finally, how you decide and choose to treat another Noun (a delightful definition isn’t it?), is, has been, and always will be yours and yours alone to bear the responsibility of.
So choose well, comrades, and may The Moose be with you.
The Sleepy Moose Waking up, from the world around to the world within.
