Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Am I just a random isolated skin sack of blood, bile, turd, piss, and water, spinning hopelessly around a dumb, expanding happenstance universe? Am I nothing more than accident? Is this universe forever deaf, dumb, and blind to me?

Am I just a corporate lackey, paid to play the role of Consumer, forever and ever, Amen? Am I doomed into purchasing my “happiness” from some so-called “super” store? Am I nothing more than a random assortment of brands disguised as personality?

Am I just the waste I leave behind? A buried trash heap of rotting cardboard, plastic, paper, denim, leather, sinew, stuffing, and bone? Am I nothing more than a briefly animating trail of trash?

Am I just a fool? A careless, misinformed intellectual mongrel, doomed to eat and shit away my brief time as universe ever convinced of my complete separation from it?

Or

Am I the Evolving Expression of a 13.7+ billion year Expanding Energy know as Universe, Become Alive, Become Aware: Of Itself!?

Am I the 2 Become 1, The Ground Of All Being, The Union Of All Dualities? The In And The Out? The Up And The Down? The Good And The Bad? The Life And The Death? The Night And The Day?

Am I, As With You, As With Them, As With All, The One True Experiencer? We Together Playing The World Foundationally As One?

Am I You And You I And We Them And Them We And We All: Connecting To The All That Can Ever Be?

Who Am I? I Think I Might Be Everything, Just Like You!

 

Push the little red button and turn off the Madness. Quiet the mind and become the Breathe. Follow The Path And Relax Into Being…

 

Let’s Come Together And Give It A Better Try!!!

Left And Right, Up And Down, In And Out, All Around Us: The Light Of A Trillion+ Suns Shines Every Which Way, Every Instant Of Every Day.

Contained Within This Light Is The Story Of The Long Now, The 13.7+ Billion Year Old And Ever Growing Expansion Of Space-Time We Call Universe.

We Each Ride On The Crest Of This Relentless Expansion Of Space-Time, Our Individual Egos Barely An Instantaneously-Disappearing-Blip On The Radar Map Of The Long Now: Here One Moment, Completely Gone The Next, Yet Always And Forever Connected To The Entire Expanding History Of Cosmos!

A Disciple Of The Buddha Might Refer To This As “Dependent Arising”, All Causes Necessarily Connecting To Their Corresponding Effects, Every Instant Of Time Dependently Arising From The Unfolding Of All Previous Time, And Ever Connected To The Complete Unfolding Of The Entire History Of Time!

The Entire Surrounding Canopy Of Galaxies And Stars Reflecting Inside Our Eyes, Reflecting Inside Our Mind, Containing The History Of All That Has Ever Been, As It Effortlessly Converts Into All That Will Ever Be.

Whether We Like It Or Not, And Whether We Even See It Or Not: We Each Are Connected To The Entire History Of The Cosmos.

Blessed And Cursed With The Fleeting Gift Of Self-Awareness, Grown From A Tiny Blue Speck We Call Earth, Spinning Around A Medium Sized, Mostly Spherical, Thermonuclear Furnace We Call Sun, Spinning Around A Super Massive Black Hole, Feverishly Growing At The Center Of A Galaxy We Call Milky Way, Expanding In A Universe Of Billions Of Dancing Galaxies We Call Cosmos, Amen.

Our Lives Are A Gift Not To Be Wasted! Our Place Is A Gift Not To Be Ignored.

 

One, Always One.

The Message is patiently sitting right on the tip of our nose and we continually choose not to See It…

We Are All ONE.

As a Wonderful Hindu Metaphor Suggests: We Are Each One Facet, Perfectly Reflecting All Other Facets, Of One Infinitely Faceted Cosmic Jewel.

Contained within every cell in every Earthly-body is a delicately-coiled, informationally-coded, spiraling-strand of amino-acids, known as DNA, that Connects All Living Beings of Planet Earth To This Oneness.

The Air We Breathe, The Water We Drink, The Food We Eat, The Atoms We Become, All Of One Source, All Of One Earth, All Of One Universe.

Contained within almost every single tiny speck of “empty” space is practically the Entire History of the Cosmos, as described Electromagnetically! Photons, neutrinos, and an assortment of other whizzing, waving, bits of Universe, constantly passing in, off, and through us omnidirectionally, and all containing the entire 13.7 plus billion year Expanding Story known as Space/Time, known as Universe, and also Known as Us! (Electromagnetically speaking anyway.)

There can be no deviation from This, it is literally Written Into The very Fabric of Our Cosmic Being…

We Are All ONE!

With This Understanding Comes Great Responsibility!

As one Zen teacher describes It (from Buddhism by Huston Smith and Philip Novak):

Infinite Gratitude to All Things Past, Infinite Service to All Things Present, and Infinite Responsibility to All Things Future.

That sounds pretty Good to me! You might even say, right on the nose!

 

Let’s Look to Science for a moment to help Us Describe Our Place…

Cosmologists, who Read the Electromagnetic Spectrum, that constantly baths Us in all directions from Our Universe at large, tell Us that the Universe is currently Expanding. This means that if We were to run the Cosmic Clock backwards through Time, it would contrarily be Contracting. With this in Mind and Detailed Measurements at hand, it has been estimate that 13.8 billion years ago Our entire Cosmos was contained within a Singularity, sometimes called The Big Bang, that would burst forth into Everything that would ever Be!

You, Me, my Dog, Our Neighbors, Mount Everest, the Moon, the Past, the Future, Everything Energetically contained within a singular Speck!

Albert Einstein formulated that E=(mc)Squared. This is probably the most Famous Math Formula of all Time, and probably rightfully so: It states that all matter in Our Universe is Energy, Intense amounts of Exchanging Energy. In this formula, “E”, represents the Energy involved, which is Equivalent to “m”, representing the amount of Matter being described, multiplied by “c”, which represents the Speed of Light, which happens to be 299,792,458 meters per second, or more than 7 times around the Earth’s equator every single second, squared!!! This means that even in a tiny amount of material stuff, is contained a mind boggling amount of pure vibrating Energies!!!

Biologists, especially those specializing in the Human Body, tell us that Atomically speaking, We may never be more than around 7 years old! Some things, like Our blood, is constantly being regenerated, and is only ever around 4 months old. Other Materials are longer lived, but none ever permanent, all ever changing. Cells are constantly being replaced, fabrics constantly being rebuilt. This suggests that the underlying Geometry is more fundamental to Our Being than the Atoms that build the actual structures!!!

Geneticists, studying the Informationally twisting 220 million rungged ladder known as DNA, estimate that we share more than half of Our Genetic Structure with even a Banana! Every single Living Creature born Of this Planet, spinning As this Galaxy is Connected through Our Genetics! Evolution Unites ALL Life on Planet Earth!

We are so Much More than we typically give Ourselves credit to Be!
