116 – The Primal, Sensual, Creative Creature Throbbing within Us …

Without a rival we know of, the human mind, that visionary without par and mystery of all mysteries, that wanders anywhere it pleases – imagining infinity, scrutinizing atoms, feeling feelings, remembering what’s been learned, mapping the future, thinking of itself.

But we let it be imprisoned under the chains of dogma … shying away from self-knowledge for the pleasure and comforts of those who care for us not, estranged from our own beauty for the pleasure and comforts of those who deceive us to engorge their greed.

Obey our authority, they demand, even if it destroys you and divides you and makes you hate. Kill for our macabre beliefs, they demand, even if those we kill have done nothing to us.

Without a rival, when given a bit of a chance and a bit of freedom, the human mind blooms like that of Einstein, Beethoven, Rilke.

E=mc2, the greatest insight into the nature of Reality: Self-reflection in Nature.

The Choral Symphony, a joyful cry out of a world without sound.

“Help me. You see, we slip back,

without knowing it, from our advance,

into something we didn’t intend; where

we can become caught up, as in a dream,

and where we could die without waking.”* … a cry from a beautiful mind beginning to see that, imprisoned under the chains of those who do not want us free to know, we will never see the incredible beauty within us: That primal, sensual, creative being throbbing in us, fiercely craving to know and to be known, to understand and to be understood, to love and to be loved.

* Rilke
