266 – How can we still doubt? …

Thursday, April 15th, 2021

How can we still doubt – as so many of us do – that our Universe is alive?

When it is self-evident and thoroughly proven that it grows and evolves in a steady, self-determined progression toward higher levels of complexity and order.

When patterns – like the constancy of the speed of Light, the economy of its chemical elements, the preference of its galaxies to conform into elliptical or spiral shapes – ripple across its entire body, regulating itself, organizing itself, loving itself.

When its progress is so palpable that we can see it with our own eyes and feel it and touch it with our own bodies.

When we, one of its myriad living components, are creations of its constant self-creation.

How can we doubt?

265 – The Unknown …

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

In my youth, forced to believe what I intuitively knew to be fallacies fabricated to control the human mind, I rebelled. Instead, I embarked on a search for the Unknown for whom I have no name but from whom I emerged with the invincible imagination that, although laced with ignorance, urges me to find the Truth.

The Unknown from whom we emerge is not omnipotent or all-powerful as many of us claim, but the sentient, self-evident, knowable, living organism we inhabit and inhabits us; an organism who, like us, struggles to adapt and survive amid the demands of challenging environments; an organism who, like us, inherits supple laws to construct a supple future; an organism who, like us, is driven by instincts and needs yet invested with choice and purpose.

We, the Unknown and us, are both destroyers and creators. We are both ugly and beautiful. We are both limited and free.

The knowledge gathered from our crude existence is the result of what we experience through our organic senses, yet it is also the knowledge that lays the ground for the exploration of an Unknown that, although remaining beyond our comprehension, allows us to muse about it because we are in it, and it is in us.

Since I am he, who I am seeking?

Why should I seek? I am the same as he. His essence speaks through me.

I have been looking for myself.” Rumi
