You can nuture the spirit behind any circumstance and like anything nurtured it grows closer to you. It creates more events of its kind.
Recent scientific research appears to substantiate a static material reality, neither entropic nor chaotic, inflationary nor collapsing.
Matter suggests that you have no heritage, no lineage. You are your parents, and your grand parents, and all those who came before. We are all manifestations of an unimaginably deep latticework of expression having no beginning or end. As in fact, the dimension we name as time has a breadth and depth that can allow for no advent nor terminus. All of this infinite universe is contained in the infinitely minute. Tiny manifold snarls of pure dimensional substance, popularly called cosmic strings, and reality is reflected consistently from the bottom up.
Back to the human. Before feeling we have sensation. Your feelings are holistic states of being that incorporate the entirety of sensation. After feeling we have thought. A referencing of our experience to look for acquired skills that might aid us in acting as we feel motivated to act.
Are they also thoughts and feeling experienced simultaneously by others? Feeling and thought is a singular domain of potential having every bit as much substance as matter itself.
Is that part of what makes spirit? Spirit precedes both feeling and thought, and spirit is likewise the receiver of all that grows from the events of feeling, thought and action.
Spirit precedes sensation? Yes. This is why it’s hard for the brain to make intelligible sense of, at least by the standards most people insist upon. Matter is more in the way of psychosis than spirit, yet we insist otherwise. We convince ourselves that things are ordered as they appear to be, and we convince ourselves that our experience has meaning in what amounts to a paradoxical combination of the individual and absolute senses.
Virtual reality is teaching us otherwise. Indeed, it is. Science allows for no contradiction, and in fact, neither does spirit. When two things seem to be mutually exclusive, they both just point to a common factor that superficially manifests as the contradictory apparencies.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
