To dismiss something because it seems obvious has been the source of many grievous errors even in the most concrete disciplines.
Humans have an insanely feral capacity for obsession, but they haven’t always been completely without sense. There were some basic facts and observations that started all of this current religious mess, and all that energy could have done a great good if these experiences hadn’t made humans behave like the emperor scorpion. When an emperor scorpion gets too agitated, it gets so driven to sting something it stings itself to death. As they say, “When all you have in a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”
But can’t some type of obsession be good? No obsession is good. Never. Obsession is a living death. It makes you trade manifestation for “fixed” reality. When you “fix” reality you break it, and worse than that you break your own soul.
I’m obsessed with finding the truth. Is that bad? Yes. It will keep you from finding it. To be obsessed, you have to have an “object” that will be the truth for you, and when you begin to get frustrated in not finding an object to call the truth, you will make one up. This will make you seriously delusional. Passion on the other hand is good. It’s just the fullness of the flow of life through you. It’s impossible to be fixated/obsessed in thought and impassioned at the same time. I myself have intense passions, most of which I have to admit I sublimate. My youth taught me people would punish me severely if I were my “impassioned” self. I had to bury my passions, hide them.
We all have passions. We all have feelings. We all have that indescribable calling that manifests in countless ways. Manifestation isn’t about milking the reality cow. It’s about actually taking a frigging breath. Breathing in the spiritual air so your head can clear. Allowing the inner life to be what it is, your “real” life. It’s the life truest to your heart.
You don’t have any reason to be lost, and you have nothing to gain nor anything you actually have ever lost. Not really even time or energy, these just change form. What you can do is be alive now. Get your priorities “crooked”. I say this for a reason. There is no straight in nature. The golden ratio is more of a rule than any of the linear nonsense people like so much. Reality exists in the “round”. If your priorities are straight, then you are just creating an unnatural toxin.
Should we not reflect on what is to come? You should not, no. The reason I say this is simple, because what is to come is manifestation. It’s happening right now. It’s real right now. The idea of “later” is the lie. If you think you will be a “better” person later, you are just delusional. You are indescribably good. You just aren’t paying attention.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
