Notes from a Cave

The importance of developing an "observer" mindset can not be understated if you truely wish to make change.We are all "addicts".Addicts to habit. The mind is "programmed" to behave this way.Conservation of energy.If you truely want to make an internal change, things as they are, must be accepted.But before they can even be accepted, they first must be observed.While illusion will most undoubtly attract more illusion to protect itself, such is the mind, observation must always be applied.The…See More

Fools, Emotion, Power

The following thoughts are the my attempt to rectify some inherent dichotomies that stem from my interaction with Christian religion.Please understand that in this process, I am not admonishing the religion, its principles or history.What I am addressing are certain "conflicts" I hold within that are the resultant of my own interaction with the religion.Now I could also consider the possibility that these "conflicts" existed within before the interaction.This does not change the fact that they…See More

I Conduct

So if we go back to this analysis of literalism, and the definition, we are led to consider the "imaginative" path of interpretation of words.These individual interpretations of word, have many levels. And this is dependent on the reader.But at what point does the individual become the word?This event is occult, in that it is "hidden" from the interpreter.I will not use the term "reader" because that implies individual thought, and consideration. "Consumer" is somewhat accurate, but it lacks…See More

I Observe

It's funny how much information we take in, even more so than that, how much of that we accept literally.A simple example of this is advertisement.We (the company) have this great new product, that, well, frankly, we know you want.To some degree this an inversion of the process, in my opinion.From a pure Hermetic view point, this inversion, probably doesn't even matter as long as it is observed and brought into conscious awareness.I think that's the point.To recognize the process for what it…See More

Stagnation, Bodies, Wounds

In the Christian faith, there are many prayers and mantras which contain the words (or concepts) "mercy", "blessing", and "forgiveness".I wonder if the basis for this observation is that, generally speaking, we lack the ability to do this for ourselves.If you consider the physical body, the subtle body, and traumatic experience, you can see, if you look carefully, that these are all interrelated.I would venture to say that the majority of issues, whether physical or mental, are the result of…See More

The importance of developing an "observer" mindset can not be understated if you truely wish to make change.

We are all "addicts".

Addicts to habit. The mind is "programmed" to behave this way.

Conservation of energy.

If you truely want to make an internal change, things as they are, must be accepted.

But before they can even be accepted, they first must be observed.

While illusion will most undoubtly attract more illusion to protect itself, such is the mind,…

We tend to use emotion to subjugate action.
While this can be beneficial, it's also not maintainable.
Emotion is a tool to pierce through that fog of equanimity.
To initiate change is a powerful ability.

The rip is not the point.
It's a step into something new.
On the other side is responsibility.
Not more rips.

Take care in the exploration of ego dressed in balance.

I've had this meme in my "Celebrity" file for months and not known where to post it. I think you'll like it. We have to understand though that very few are either just part of the problem or just part of the solution. Black and white do not shine that brightly when kindness creeps in to relatively bleak scenarios. We need not support a myth that stunts anybody's will to improve their lot from whatever glue they may be stuck in as dealt. Thanks for all the posts. Breathe and laugh!
