Impossible Ideas

100. There is no such thing as “impossible” 99. We are present to the fact that the life is our life, that the reality is our reality to do with as we please, because we are really present to ourselves, as ourselves. 98. Whatever trauma, fear, pain is there to stop us from being fully who we are – we don’t let it. 97. Enlightenment is not the end of the journey, rather it’s the very first step. 96. We have ideas, ideas don’t have us. We create explanations and reasons, they do not create us. We are the storytellers who spin the stories. 95. We enjoy the company of people with whom we have nothing in common. [click to continue…]

More Impossibilities

  • Snake in a paradise is a real asset, it helps the paradise to open to a whole new level of beauty and bliss.
  • On the planet where nature is present, aware, conscious, it is impossible to feel lonely. We are surrounded by friends at all times.
  • Happiness and bliss are normal.
  • When the mind is clear we are present to our thoughts and ideas. When who we are is clear we are present to reality.
  • We choose how we feel.
  • We choose to be with people, rather than for people; with nature rather than for nature; with the world rather than for the world.
  • We choose to find out what would happen, rather than decide what will happen, and by choosing who we are in relationship with anything that might happen – we create it.
There is no such thing as “sacred”. There is simply an experience of our relationship to life, to death, to God, to trauma, to love, to ourselves. Where there is love there is no pain, suffering, heartbreak. Love does not bring pain, love heals it. We consider being who we are, expressing who we are, a priority in life. We realize that including, opening, inviting and welcoming is beneficial to everyone, while excluding, protecting, separating and pushing away benefits no one. Anything that mind can provide – love, success, understanding, creativity, power, safety, is only a pale imitation of what we can create when we are present as who we truly are – God. There is no limit to what we can take responsibility for and, consequently, there is no limit to what we can create. To understand wonderland we first have to enter it. To understand who we are we first have to be who we are, to understand God we first have to experience God, to understand nature we first have to be nature. And when we fully are, fully experience, fully open, fully being – then the need to understand becomes obsolete.

Impossible Ideas

My writing changes, I realized recently. How I express myself in writing changes. 70 days ago I begun to imagine impossible ideas every morning, and things shifted. Where before an idea would open and develop into a story, now a story seems to condense and distill into an idea. Where before I would write an essay – now I write a sentence or two. There are many, many impossible ideas at this point, here are some of the most recent ones:
  • What we call “an innate human nature” is simply how we choose to relate.
  • Arranging life’s details, creating an occupation, finding a place to live, organizing ways of supporting oneself, is like preparing your canvas, selecting paints, choosing brushes. Once all is ready, the painting begins.
  • There is nothing and no one that can make us be who we are … or stop us from being who we are.
  • Whether the warriors fight for light, or for darkness – as long as there are warriors, there is war.
  • When we explain an experience, understand an experience, analyze an experience, interpret an experience, judge an experience, consider an experience from different angles and look at an experience form various perspectives, there is only one thing that doesn’t change: the experience. Can we just stick to the experience and let go of all the rest?
  • I don’t need to know a definition of line, shape or contour, in order to draw it.
  • By being present as who we are we outgrow time and space. By relating as who we are, as humans, here on Earth, we outgrow life.
If you would like to see all of my impossible ideas, here they are:
We are not alone in the universe. There are beings right here, on Earth, whose ways of relating, experiencing, is alien to us. Beings who are being in ways we can’t even conceive of. Those beings are our partners, our allies, ready to support us, willing to share their secrets. Those beings are what we call “nature”.
