I can say this my friend. The whole universe seems to take the form of the seer. Leaving one to wonder...are we staring into one very large mirror?

Or the form of what is seen/seeing.

We r really only as far apart as our thoughts...this applies to friendship as well as being with someone we love or being in a Master's presence. But we also limit ourselves in our thoughts....it is quite a paradox.

The most interesting phenomena to me transcends thought. That is meditation. In meditation we find we are looking for that place where all thoughts are left behind-those thoughts that are positive in manifestation and those thoughts that are negative in manifestation. That is because there comes an awareness that attachment to positive thoughts and actions can just as easily attach us to the objects of those thoughts. We watch all thoughts dispassionately as they rise and fall and realize that as long as they persist we persist and exist trapped in this realm which the idea that came from thought created.

i don't have any answers here, just questions. i've given a lot of thought lately, on the power of thoughts. much of which has lead me to believe one must study more with mediation and death. the idea in death is that we part from our body and mind and the idea of meditation is we can transcend thought and reach bliss.

is death the great liberator? are we our thoughts? why would close friends condemn you from changing by binding you to past thoughts and actions?
i wonder, is it possible to exist without thought. i wonder if memories are thoughts and if it's possible to have memories prior to being born.

lately i've been drawn back to the power of thought. how can one walk freely in this world, interact with others and say they experience the absence of thoughts or more accurately, the bliss one finds in meditation when we are bound by the bustle of every day life, by our bodies and minds. is bliss itself a thought or an emotion or something more?

we know, the power of thoughts hold a creative power. power to change our physical bodies- whether in sickness or to be even a healthier you and power to influence others(again for better or worse). but we are here, and while we are here we will have to experience thought everyday, every moment. i do have more time to meditate lately...

but what does this knowledge provide when we can't articulate it or live it to its fullest...

many thoughts here today but not enough energy to pursue.... so with this i retire and dive back into the busy world

peace, blessings

Have you ever felt really good and you may have noticed that you were not thinking about it. Just experiencing feeling good. As a matter of fact the more you may have thought about it the more you may have noticed you were loosing the experience.

Likewise I do not see bliss as thought. Because when someone tries to cognize the experience they have of bliss; it quickly disappears. This is the nature of the mind-- always wanting validation and it grabs onto experience and chokes it. It is much more difficult to experience such states of bliss and joy when we are bound by the bustle of daily life. Only an enlightened Master would be able to experience bliss and joy at all times and in all surroundings. Therefore it is important to occasionally take ourselves out of the routine and environment we have fenced ourselves into and experience for instance the language of silence and nature for a day at perhaps a park, the woods, the mountains a river or the ocean. We can then more easily slow the thoughts down and let peace slip in the cracks of constant bothersome thought patterns.

Does one remember things that did not happen this life time or does one create them? Ah but why would one create memories without volition to do so?

I do not 'think' we have to always experience thought. We can just experience awareness. Thought is only a tool we use to 'fix' things. When there is no need to fix things why reach for the tool box? I am using thought to convey this message it is conveyed by thought because of awareness that I had while in the woods mediating this morning. Awareness and the joy of being inspired such thoughts. Now I hope to go back to some form of awareness without so much thought to interfere. However I will soon be mediating again because the mind and emotions often crowd there way into my awareness as well. Practice, practice, practice and one day. YES!

The reason many people are lost in thought
is because its unfamiliar territory!

And for those listening to noisy thoughts it can be annoying and so familiar that nothing else is heard or experienced.
