Robots of 21st Century

"....Folks, when you start looking at anyone as a color or a title, you not only rob them of their humanity, but your own as well. Moreover, it's the first step toward the consideration of harming someone - you don't think of them as a person, but a thing." ~ Zennie62, SFGate

The ending, the beginning ...

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. ~ T.S. Eliot

The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn . . . A day will come when beings who are now latent in our thoughts and hidden in our loins shall stand upon this earth as one stands upon a footstool, and shall laugh and reach out their hands amid the stars. ~ Herbert George Wells

"Most people find it difficult to see that it is their attitude that makes an event seem either good or bad. One corrective technique is to take some small annoyance and try to see it with a different view-point. Work sincerely to see the event or the person in a new way. Remember, this new and liberating way exists as a fact, whether you are aware of it or not. Your task is personal discovery of it."

Your Inner Purpose is to Awaken

So the most important thing to realize is this: Your life has an inner purpose and an outer purpose. Inner purpose concerns Being and is primary. Outer purpose concerns doing and is secondary…. Inner and outer, however, are so intertwined that it is almost impossible to speak of one without referring to the other.

Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet – because it is the purpose of humanity. Your inner purpose is an essential part of the purpose of the whole, the universe and its emerging intelligence. Your outer purpose can change over time. It varies greatly from person to person. Finding and living in alignment with the inner purpose is the foundation for fulfilling your outer purpose. It is the basis for true success. Without that alignment, you can still achieve certain things through effort, struggle, determination, and sheer hard work or cunning. But there is no joy in such endeavor, and it invariably ends in some form of suffering. ~ Eckhart Tolle

There is more to man than meets the eye....

We all have the faculty to discern spiritual qualities in the world. We can see honesty; we can see integrity; we can see beauty; we can see love; we can see goodness; we can see joy; we can see peace; we can see harmony; we can see intelligence; and so forth. None of these things has any form; none of these things can be imagined; none of these things is tangible, and yet they can be seen. What is the organ that sees these invisible things? Some people call it the soul, spirit, or consciousness. Man is a spiritual being endowed with spiritual faculties of perception. ~ Dr. Thomas Hora

Beautiful Spirit, Voice, a Purposeful Life

Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole 'IZ' (May 20, 1959 – June 26, 1997) was nicknamed "The Gentle Giant" by his admirers. He was described as always cheerful and positive, and he was best known for his love of the land and of the people of Hawaiʻi. Beloved by many, his body lay in state at the state capitol, the only nonpolitician ever to be so honored. Over 20,000 attended a memorial service and thousands were in the ocean as his ashes where scattered in the waters off of Makua Beach on the Waianae Coast of Oahu.

Iz: "Don't cry for me... go plant one tree..."

"Love each oddah. Malama. Take Care. Stop the dope, brah. It's only facade, brah. It's a thin curtain. It's only temporary. Us guys is forever. Our ancestors, our ancestors before that. ..."

Transcending Bipolar Disorder

"Just don't even talk about killing yourself. That's your mind off on it's own. The point about living with this "disease" is to recognize that impulses/feelings are not facts. Use your feelings and creativity to your advantage. When in doubt, use your brain, just think about things as logically as possible and make a decision without emotion involved. I am 42 years old, rather succesful, traveled everywhere, and have lived at least 3 lifetimes past the herd. (I have the best stories...) If given the choice between having the "disease" or not, I would choose to have it. However, it really sucks at 15. I truly know: no one diagnosed it back then... Best advice I can give (which may not work for you): figure out what you like to do, work hard, make it your career, and when in doubt, THINK. Having a bunch of ideas is easy; deploying or rejecting them requires discpline. Have fun doing it! (And do yoga- it really works.)"

"Thanks for the valuable account of your own experiences and related thoughts. I very much share your sense that a "bipolar" diagnosis "lacks the subtlety required to transcend that frame," and that the common need, for those having the diagnosis as well as everyone else, is "to take responsibility for oneself and one's moods," using whatever resources are available while recognizing that "moods will always change" and that that is, in and of itself, a positive feature of our lives rather than a negative one."

"Im a 44 yr old male, after being shown this article by a friend, I hungrily read every bit of it.I have been an artist my whole life, and a musician as well. I learned to play guitar by ear, and became very accomplished at it. Everything creative , I have excelled at, ever setting higher, almost unrealistic goals for myself, with the belief that I can do anything.I experience a prophetic high , which comes and goes seemingly without pattern. The spirit goeth where it listeth.This euphoria I have always found myself waiting for, like a drug. There have been many times when I was under its spell and hurriedly and feverishly wrote so that I wouldnt lose the creative thoughts.Unfortunately, these major ups are inevitably coupled with some terrible downs. States of depression and self loathing.In my youth I often thought of suicide to get relief, even attempted it once in my 20s.I believe these cycles have also influenced my voracious appetite for the spiritual, since I voraciously read everything from books on the greek mystery cults to alchemy.
Throughout my life, in times of depression, many people close to me have suggested medication.I would never take their advice, my belief being that I would then lose those periods of what I firmly believe are, truly, divine inspiration(laugh all u want, lol).There is an old saying,.."the moon has no light of its own".Our minds being the impotent moon,and the universal mind being the potent sun.I believe each creative is a conduit or vessel, according to varied capacity, receiving ambrosia from above.The ancient poets and prophets thought this,as well as some artists and poets do today.These periods of inspiration are the poets muse, ever spoken of.
Plato wrote of the archetypal realm of ideas, that hidden and divine source of all knowledge and wisdom.This very realm is the source and fountain from which creatives draw their water.I would have it no other way, and consider it a blessing to partake of that water, as so few are able to.The periods of depression may even be partly because of the great loss felt when that inspiration leaves us.
First we are almost immortal, able to take on anything,and next we are filled with a terrible emptiness. There are times when I look at artwork I have done and think, wow I cant believe I made that, and there are other times when I doubt I even am an artist, and think, "what made you ever think you were?".
I feel strongly that having been blessed/cursed with hypomania has allowed me to know things and do things that the average person cannot even grasp.I feel a kinship with all who have written here. Godbless"

You Cannot Control How People React to You

Try to move beyond your hurt feelings, realizing it isn't easy to do if someone else is inconsiderate. Nevertheless, it's important for you to realize that you cannot control how people react to you, even if you are tempted to manipulate their emotions by subtle things you say or don't say. Instead of wasting your energy on exerting your will, find a place within that can transform your fear into love by accepting others for who they are. ~ Rick Levine

Spiritual development is not a luxury but a necessity for survival...

To serve the world out of the dynamic union of wisdom and compassion would be to participate most effectively in the preservation of the planet. Masters of all the religious traditions on earth now understand that spiritual training is essential not solely for monks and nuns but for all people, whatever their faith or way of life. The nature of spiritual development is intensely practical, active, and effective. The danger we are all in together makes it essential now that we no longer think of spiritual development as a luxury but as a necessity for survival.

As a famous Tibetan teaching says: “When the world is filled with evil, all mishaps should be transformed into the path of enlightenment.” ~ Sogyal Rinpoche

Malicious Hypnotism, Einstein's Perspective

We are all very susceptible to hypnotism as long as we are materially minded. But if we are spiritually minded, the hypnotism has no effect on us. It is important to recall here a remark Albert Einstein once made: "Arrows of hate ('fiery darts') have been shot at me many times, but they never touched me because they came from a world with which I have nothing in common." What did he mean? Where was he dwelling that these arrows of hate couldn't reach him? He was dwelling above and beyond interaction thinking, in the land of spiritual consciousness.

An ancient Chinese proverb says: "A poisoned arrow can find no place to lodge itself in an enlightened man." ~ Thomas Hora, M.D.

Please explain human cruelty...

"It is characterized by two features. First, a cruel person gets a strange sort of exhilaration, a false sense of power, by hurting another. Secondly, he doesn't see how cruelty destroys his psychic self. If he saw cruelty as self-ruin, he would stop in horror. All evil, including cruelty, is unconscious. It is done in a hypnotic state of unawareness." ~ Vernon Howard

Annoyed by the shallow, often senseless behavior of others...

"Don't believe that they can do any better than they do. A child of five can't behave like a child of ten. The same with adults. No one can possible behave above his own level of understanding. Don't expect people to do any better than they are compelled to do at their present level. Your problem is in assuming that they should and could behave better. That is like thinking that a monkey should be as dignified as a deer. Understand this and annoyance disappears." ~ Vernon Howard

As long as we cherish opinions we cannot participate in a dialogic process because we have an investment in affirming our opinions... the wise man has no opinions whatsoever about anything ... a wise man has a thirst for understanding. He does not claim personal knowledge. At the drop of a hat he is ready to alter his thoughts." ~ Thomas Hora, M.D.

There is really no such thing as a shaky situation, so any time you start to trimble, don't look around you for the fault: Look inward. It's the inner ground you're standing on that isn't solid.

Karma means that whatever we do, with our bodies, speech, or minds, will have a corresponding result. Each action, even the smallest, is pregnant with its consequences. It is said by the masters that even a little poison can cause death, and even a tiny seed can become a huge tree. And as Buddha said: “Do not overlook negative actions merely because they are small; however small a spark may be, it can burn down a haystack as big as a mountain.”

Although the results of our actions may not have matured yet, they will inevitably ripen, given the right conditions. Usually we forget what we do, and it is only long afterward that the results catch up with us. By then we are unable to connect them with their causes. “Imagine an eagle,” says Jikmé Lingpa.” It is flying, high in the sky. It casts no shadow. Nothing shows that it is there. Then suddenly it spies its prey, dives, and swoops to the ground. And as it drops, its menacing shadow appears.”

Saturday, June 20, 2009

Albert Einstein stated:

"A human being is part of the whole we call the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical illlusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison, by widening our circle of compassion, to embrace all living beings and all of nature."

Control Issues

"People don't control themselves, their own lives, and yet they want to control the world. As a matter of fact, there is a law involved in that. The less control an individual has over his own internal state, the more he will be compelled, forced, whipped along to try to control other people. Because this means that in this state of weakness, of immaturity, he's going to try to get rid of the pain of the fact by trying to prove that he does have power. And what he does is hurt, what he does is destroy, all unconscious, not seeing that his own lack of internal command of himself, of his life - spiritual command - not seeing that his own lack of that is what spurs him on and this is the cause of all the destruction in the world." ~ Howard Vernon

Humanity must evolve because it is our only chance of survival as a race...

"Humanity is under great pressure to evolve because it is our only chance of survival as a race. This will affect every aspect of your life and close relationships in particular. Never before have relationships been as problematic and conflict ridden as they are now. As you may continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again. But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world. For those who hold to the old patterns, there will be increasing pain, violence, confusion, and madness. " -- Eckhart Tolle

"Sometimes in the constant effort to keep moving and achieving, we slow ourselves down, and in our efforts to stay focused, we become endlessly distracted. So today I'm determined to embrace a bit of stillness. Because of this, my post is going to be brief; in fact, you're almost at the end of it.

Today I wish all of you a moment in which absolutely nothing happens, when you can be still and hear nothing but the beautiful beat of your own heart. "

Thoughts are powerful energy...

Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden", published in 1911:

"One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts -- just mere thoughts -- are as powerful as electric batteries -- as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a bad thought get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body."
