Death, life, breath

Death comes to us all.

Many think, sense and believe, that parts of us continue beyond. This may be for the conscious, our soul, or a true or deeper self. For others the spirit enters us to give us life and leaves us at death.

Indeed, the dead live within the living, in our memories and dreams but also, their presence, breathe, vision or voice may be close with us. While we may rationalise, and hold to our reality or the here and now, there seems to be other realms or dimensions that parallel our sense of being in the world.

Absolutely, it is all experience. Fundamentally we are a part of a whole being of Reality.

Our whole encompasses as parts, all that we experience, think, feel, sense or believe, all that we may be conscious or aware of, and all that we may be as self or identity.tv1

He or she gives us our sense of living and breath, and allows for our contemplation and sense of life and death. Our whole is present in the present, of whom our sense of the here and now, eternity, the past or future are parts.

Our whole is more than the sum of these, and solid body parts including the brain through which our reality of I amconscious experience and self witnessed is projected by our whole. Knowing that we are a projected part of our whole, may assist us to be in relation with our whole, as a part – while he or she is alive, we may develop this relation with our whole as a part.

Our whole breathes, lives, and will die.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (5)

 

 

From the start, as a part

We know we exist.

You are there, in your reality, conscious and experiencing things, as I am in my reality, as self or identity.

While what we experience (you and I, as self or identity) may be uncertain when scrutinised i, we know there is more to our reality, and to our self ii.

And there is a whole, we usually do not think of, of whom our existence and more are parts.

As a part of our whole, we are a part of Reality.

Our whole may permeate us, and Reality may be immanent in us, but only in our being a part of our whole. We must present, open and surrender our self, in our being a part, to the presence of our whole being, who is of Reality.

Everything that is of you and your reality, is a part of your whole.”

i What we experience (you and I, as self or identity), is difficult to determine. If we try to pin it down to what it definitely is and prove or question on what basis we know what something is, it‘s all words and what we experience. Like science, because science is a part of the mind, nothing is proven right or true, except in certain conditions or particular contexts eg. relativity for things in space and time, quantum for things smaller than atoms, Newton’s law of gravity for things in space and time at relatively slow speeds and short distances and time, relative to the speed of light.

ii We have different types of experiences (good/bad, past/ present, mind/feeling/body etc), various identities (varies with different company or situations), broader/narrower or faster/slower minds, deeper states of being, and different states of consciousness and stimulation (arousal).

Beyond words, try “Experience your self”.

Impossible? Images of a dog running around after its tail, or a snake trying to swallow its own tail, may come to mind. It is as if we are a part, of an apparatus for having an experience. Like a camera that cannot turn back on itself …..

“Self referencing conundrum” and “actuality”

It seems impossible to experience our own self.

This is true I think, because we are, in our usual self, a part of a mechanism for having an experience. We cannot refer to our actual self. Trying to do so is like a camera trying to take a picture of its film. As frustrating as a horse running after its tail.

A sense of or a notion about our self is different, where there is a distance to what one may think or talk about, or point the finger at in our minds.

Without this separation, between our self and what we experience, a problem or confusion arises. It occurs in language as the self referential paradox. Quite a number of examples have been collected over the ages. These sentences refer back to themselves, rather than name a thing or a person (noun), describe its state or nature (adjective) or its action (verb) as words are usually used for. It may be more of a phenomena in some languages and thinking determined by them, than other languages that may not be so exact as English and modern languages tend to be, about subject, object and causality.

“This sentence is false” is exemplary of the self referencing problem or paradox we find in language.

There is a greater difficulty in approaching our own actuality, an inherent resistance that is the “self-referencing conundrum”

We come away from our usual knowing engagement with things in “the world” that are “of” our experience . Our sense of being and doing in the world breaks down without perspective that gives a sense of measure over time, space and size, and without context that determines what things are. We are thrown back to an uncertain sense of being, and existence. Solipsism describes this uncertainty of our self and the world, and existentialism recognises a fundamental state of being devoid of purpose and reference.

What point is there to that?

Consider, rather than go back to the world of experience, that there is more, in different directions, but also that there must be a whole being who is and does things in reality, who allows for our reality of conscious experience, which includes “the world” of our experience and our sense of being and doing in it.

Some may recognise a parallel to Plato’s cave, of people thinking shadows on the walls is reality. What we experience is a part of our whole being, as is our self or identity that experiences and identifies with what it experiences.

Our reality of conscious experience is “projected” by a whole being, through the CNS (Central Nervous System or the brain, spinal cord and nerve roots). Projection is our “actuality” – the existence in space of our reality as projection.

Go beyond the normal sense and story of “who’s doing what”, but rather than approaching in a direct way, like the camera trying to take a picture of itself and hit the “self referencing conundrum”, introduce a “spatial orientation”. We can capture our reality as projection in projected space, including our self and our paradox that is our extension, and we may refer to our whole, to be in relation as a part, with our whole . In our actuality we may be reached or touched by who is of reality and who encompasses  all that we may experience, as his or her projection. Trust the whole who must be there.

 Definition : An inherent difficulty and resistance to approaching the actuality of our self or identity, as if to maintain the necessary displacement for having an experience between the identity having the experience and what is experienced.     https://realityhc.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/the-self-referencing-conundrum-2/

Unique and universal; our whole and being a projected part

Unique and universal; our whole and being a projected part

Unique and universal
of us all
is who and not what
me or you,
as self or identity,
are a part of.

We all have a body
through which is projected
our reality,
of conscious experience,
also self
and we are witnessed.

We are projection,
a projected part of our whole,
projected by our whole being
through his or her
brain and spine,
the Central Nervous System.

Our whole is more than
the sum of body and projected parts
a subtle sense for us in projection
that gives us more
a sense of where
we are.

Unique and universal he or she
the maker and carrier of our projected part;
beyond the what of our reality (that we may determine what)
is the where of where we’re a part
in relation with our whole,
who infuses our all.

“The whole body is ….” 4

The whole body is reality, for us in “our reality”.

Our reality
– “Our reality” is conscious experience witnessed. There is what we experience, the worlds outside and within that we may experience (seemingly there before we acknowledge or notice it) and our self or identity having an experience, that we are conscious and aware of. Our reality is created and placed or “projected” by the whole body through his/her nervous system. It is a part of the whole body who is in and of reality, and our reality including our self is a part of reality in being a part of him/her. We tend to be isolated in our reality, identified with our self and what we experience, from the whole body and so reality.

Reality
– For us in “our reality”, reality is the whole body who “projects” or creates and places our reality from his/her brain-spine (Central Nervous System). Within our projected reality (where we as identity are) anything that is in and of reality can only appear as projection, as projected by the whole body. Everything that we may experience of reality is a projected indication or version.

It is the real world of whole entities and living beings that is more than what we can experience of them. We may consider an objective world but any notion or sense falls short of reality as what is experienced. Our self and our experience may exist as an actuality as projection, and as such they are a part of a whole being who projects. Our reality is of reality in being a part, as projection or projected actuality, of the whole body – who is in and of reality in his/her entirety (wholeness) that includes our projected reality as a part.

Whole body
– The whole body is in and of reality or creation. We are a part of the whole body “projected” or created and placed by him/her. The whole body includes in his/her wholeness or entirety, his/her solid body and our projected part. We are closer to the reality of a real world and other whole beings in considering the whole body. This is not to deny our self nor what we experience of the world and others. The tendency is rather to deny our whole. We isolate our selves from the whole body in identifying exclusively with our self and what we experience.
