Mark Twain once wrote Letters from the Earth of which I was told I needed to read.
I read that today and found it very entertaining.
I am glad to see that the blindness of man, the ridiculousness of the rejection of who and what we are, and the confusion over Devine Will is not lost.
I am happy to see men and women have dared to think and ponder the humor and reality of this ill-founded condition long before I walked this Earth.
I find it interesting that from the perspective of Satan how lost mankind was to deny themselves the very things they hold dearest and deny the natural rule that lies in their hearts.
Do not get me wrong, I mock not God. I mock us, men, women, for foolishly subscribing to man’s will and not God’s will. I think ultimately that is the point of the letters. Just how foolish it is.
God, or whomever you choose to believe set this great experiment in motion.
I think the answer exists in a harmonious mix of all that is known to us.
The Monks who abstain from all to reach enlightenment to the teachings and moral traditions of religious texts; in all of this God’s will was for us to love and seek that love. Some take different paths. Some need the rituals of organized religion to obtain something close.
I think I’ll start my own experiment. I am a technophile for most all purposes. I wonder if I can kindle and release that inner fire (tummo, chi, you name it) but in my own way.
I’ve always had a guiding principle. To thy own heart be true. In your heart you know right from wrong. In your heart you know power, good and evil, positive, negative. One’s heart can often be at odds with their mind and the constructs of logical debate contained within.
It has served me well up to now.
I wonder what the limitations could be? After all the limits of our reality are our own doing.
Who knows maybe I can create my own Crystal Palace on the net… That would be entertaining to achieve such enlightenment.
I think I’ll start with the inner fire though. That which burns and fuels us all.
Never been accused of being normal, so don’t say you haven’t been warned.
