211 – Inheritance of Order …

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Life manifests in innumerable forms of order and complexity. I am one of them.

I came into Life when an ovum and a sperm fused into a zygote that, with the combined information of the two cells, began to generate, organize, and build the mesmerizingly complex organism of my body; an organism that not only projects a mind capable of reflecting upon itself but adapts to changing environments with a sense of its own continuity.

The information the original cells brought into my life was already encoded with the knowledge acquired across thousands of years of human evolution. My capacity to comprehend symbols, discern patterns, give meaning to words, assimilate the fast-paced advances in technology, be awed by beauty and enchanted by love, were already programmed in me.

But my origin does not go back only to the fusion of the two cells nor to the ascendance of the first humanoids in Africa, my origin goes back to the beginnings of Life and the inheritance of Order.

Nothing evolves into complexity without a degree of Order.

When the Universe was begotten, a Creature beyond what our imagination can even fathom came alive knowing how to follow a primordial Order to self-generate, self-organize, thrive, persevere through whatever harsh or plainly miraculous events came next, and then bequeathed the lessons learned onto progeny.

The yearning of Life in me, living in me, thriving in me, urging me to persevere and bequeath what I have learned, is my inheritance of a primordial Order that, out of seeming chaos, has evolved to awaken the awareness of awareness.

210 – Billions like one, one like billions …

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

Doesn’t it make you wonder why your body grows with the peculiar differences that make you utterly unique yet at the same time with the same common structure of billions of other human beings? Aren’t you at least a bit curious to know why?

It is easily understood that we are utterly unique in the peculiar ways each one of us sense and understand reality, feel emotions, fall in love, dream, reason, think, and yet we are common in the sense that we belong to the same species and share the same fundamental bodily structure with billions of other human beings (four extremities, a skeleton that allows to stand erect, sexual organs, nervous system, an all-enveloping skin).

But it is not easy for us to understand that we are also universal in the sense that like everything in Nature, from the moment we are engendered, we must follow a relatively pre-determined development … we must consume and dissipate energy sources and regulate our own components to adapt to changing environments while possessing a degree of freedom to transform ourselves and our world.

Triality in Nature is universal, but our intellects are not trained to consider our threefold nature. We are unique and common and universal – all at the same time. These three properties complement each other, and all are necessary to fully understand the essence of what we are.

Remember you are all people and all people

are you

Remember you are this universe and this

universe is you *
