It’s been said that the greatest activity in the world is creation, but what can be created beyond the process of connection? The two primary connections, which aren’t really separate in essence, are Life and Death.
Connection is not some abstract force, some philosophical concept. It’s the essence of reality. The connection is silent, this is true. It’s quiet because it’s listening. The world’s listening and it has an unlimited memory. The silence is terrible sound. The darkness of death is a light too bright for the eyes to see. These things we fear are the reason we are able to love.
“A hidden connection is stronger than an obvious one.” Heraclitus of Ephesus (Greek philosopher, 540-480BC)
“I think we are bound to, and by, nature. We may want to deny this connection and try to believe we control the external world, but every time there’s a snowstorm or drought, we know our fate is tied to the world around us.” Alice Hoffman
The topic is connection, but first a question. What is the greatest activity in the world? Sex? Dancing is a good way to make connections. Yes. Any other ideas? Greatest activity… Anything that makes you feel connected to someone, someplace. Sharing. Even sharing with yourself is sharing. Yes. Allowing yourself to have things and do things is sharing with self. What are all of these in the end? They are connection. In the past, it’s been said that the greatest activity in the world is creation, but what can be created beyond the process of connection? Creation is the connection of… Seek More
We think we choose who and what we connect with, and we really don’t. Just because some want us to believe that there are right and wrong choices, right and wrong to whom? Very true. Some connections are fated to happen, I believe. Fate is the assumption that fate can be assumed. That’s true, and to assume is to choose to accept. Otherwise, fate is a moot point. Definition. To draw a line. To identify boundaries. How is definition possible? Is it true that definitions have to be either truths or lies? Definitions are often what is suitable at the time… Seek More
We’re the dots in the universe, and without the dots no lines (connections) can be drawn? Exactly. The network of connections between dots is inherently indefinable. When you watch the flow of water in a stream, it’s all just water, or is it? So being individual feeds connection. It does not reduce it as people think? Exactly. Molecules interacting dynamically with each other. Exactly, and creating their spontaneous opposite. But can you define the opposite of the infinite? If you look into the details of a rivers flow, you can see eddies, still pools and rapids, sand banks and deep… Seek More
Things. What are things? Or more specifically, what are things that they can be connected? We create things. We connect and thus create, because we fear the raging cacophony of reality. We create, because we seek to screen the light from what we fear are eyes unfit to behold truth. Now, perhaps, I am getting too poetic. What would the world be like without truth? If nothing were true? This is not a rhetorical question. Pointless? Not pointless. An endless swirl of points. A sandstorm of points. How is anything permitted to happen? Chaos. Like the damned in Dante’s hell constantly… Seek More
When I feel disconnected, I literally feel like my gravity will fail at any time, and I will float or fall off the planet. All disconnection is self generated. BS is a horrible weapon. It is a combination perpetual motion machine and anti-gravity device. I have to hold onto something to feel secure. But, what can you actually hold onto? Is anything actually an anchor? Being connected is. Our connections anchor us. Bind us, if they are negative. Nothing is an anchor, because you don’t need one. You have better. You have a propulsion device. You can swim instead of… Seek More
I cannot begin to describe the depth and breadth of the connections that are present in our consciousness. The limitless generosity shown us by the Chaos/Great Mother/God, call it what you will. But one has to be whole before one can be more than whole, and when you begin down the path of the “more than whole” you discover that you are actually adding nothing to your full being. The miracles that some admire so much, like communion with transcendent beings, sensitivity to future events, setting right health conditions and poorly balanced probabilities, these could all become pedestrian. We could… Seek More
