Whatever you believe…you’re right.

Whatever you believe…you’re right.

Everything needs its opposite to define itself.
Hot defines cold, high defines low.
All singularity exists in a binary state.

Polarity gives way to motion;
conflict…to resolution.
Nothing can escape this paradox, even paradox itself…

This truth…is also false.

Absence of Presence

Absence of Presence

The future and the past are virtual; they have no weight to them other than what we allocate by way of attention. This debt can feel so high, this weight so great, that it steals us away from this moment, the only moment. It can make us absent in the present, and paralyze us. Most animals don’t seem to share this affliction with humans…it’s always NOW to them…

Anger.

Anger.

Anger is a heated response to feeling totally out of control to the present moment. It is a lashing out; in a sort of bunker-buster, last ditch attempt to return life to the way you think it should be. It is total non-acceptance, and as such, a sign of weakness. It is closer to the antithesis of ferocity, which has nothing to do with ego at all… or even self preservation…

The Choice is Yours…

What do we really have control over?
We try to control our finances, our neighbors, our pets.
We rail against the government, the IRS, and mainstream media.
When we realize that we are wasting all of our energy trying to control that which is out of our control,
we may start to realize that the only thing that is ours to control

We so often want things to change…people to be kinder, our work to be more appreciated, our wait to be shorter. Alan Watts once commented that Blood behaves differently in a test tube than in your veins, showing that “it” and its “environment” are connected, are one. If you want to change to happen, YOU change. It starts and ends with you. If you have any control in this life, it’s over your own reaction to your environment. Being mutually connected, if you change…your environment MUST. Maybe not in the way you planned, but that’s the exciting part. Your happiness starts and ends with you.
