Our cognitive sense and story
we like to keep straight and direct
as if to cut through and contrast
the meaningless mess of massing movement,
flux and change.
We rise from solipsistic uncertainty and origin,
to hold our sight under the light
of our conscious’ plight.
Then fall back and down,
to existential depths and darkness
of empty certainty.
Each part is set self/others
by other parts, and self/not self
by a whole, parts are of,
yet transcendent of parts,
Words render our world into
we wander around and wonder at,
within our reality.”
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 …..
I feel truth resonates in the silence, or Nothingness. Between the words of our mind is Emptiness.
What I regard as Nothingness, is the absence of the whole body and the rest of creation. We are a projected part of the whole body in reality, projected by the Central Nervous System. Reality, the whole body and the rest of creation, is displaced from our projected reality, to be Nothingness.
Our love is limited and conditional. The whole self however, is spirited at the core (of Nothingness) and encompass our all, including our sense of love. The spirit is the one universal essence of All creation and the whole being in creation.
My wish is that this understanding helps us find a relation with the whole being we individually belong to. Through the whole body we may be infused by his/her being, consciousness, presence (in the present that encompass our here and now) as well as love. With that we may be touched by the spirit.
Can you appreciate the distinction between the whole self and our self? We may be unsure of the real word and what are in it – within our projected reality, there are only indications of them. However, the whole self is a special entity in reality for us, because we, as self, are a projected part of one whole. The thing is to relate with him or her, to be (easy) as a part. Otherwise we tend to be isolated in what we experience in our mind, “I’m it” and “that’s the world out there”, solipsistic.
