People are not what they think they are, but what they think … they are. Your individual awareness is like a body, and most people are down right anorexic on this level.
We don’t act only when the body acts. That’s not when an event begins and we are not the product of events that we have experienced. We are the producer of our experience. Your actions start before the event horizon of your body. Your actions are not predestined, but they are pre-chosen. Eventually, you can begin to see the core self. It’s a fluctuation energy, sort of like fire, and the airwaves or air currents moving through your core are what give rise to your impulses. You can control the flue.

Individual consciousness could also be called meta-cognition. Thinking is like the lungs. You can direct them, and they will work on their own. They can also serve as a vector for the induction of foreign substances. Whether that’s wise or… Seek More
What rules human behavior? Greed? Fear? Personal needs vs. the pressure of other humans. All kinds of desire. How about emotion? Does the rational mind ever really win out for very long or in any meaningful way? Should it? Not necessarily, though some… Seek More
What do people really want in life? Pleasure. Freedom or so they claim. Balance. Security. Health. Freedom for what? Security in what? Health and balance in what? More like “from what”. Ah yes, that is how people think, freedom from things. This is perhaps… Seek More
What do your dreams seem like to you? Fuzzy, indistinct. Warnings. Dreams are kind of like little TV shows, some stand out, some are forgotten. They are indeed much like stories, and nothing is ever completely forgotten. Some things are just… Seek More
We all have a bit of a problem on our hands don’t we? Seems like we are of two minds about most things, does it not? Ego and inner self? Yes, indeed. Frivolous and serious? Not frivolous. Those words are… Seek More
