Yeah. We were not meant to be alone. But if we are not united with the source of life, together, we valuate out of alignment, and are crushed under the weight only the Original can bear.

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. ~MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Examine what is said, not him who speaks ~Arab proverb

aes Sanātana Dharma Pali: the eternal way ~it should not be rigid, but inclusive of the best of all knowledge for the sake of Ṛta.. which is endless.

The roots.



The irony is pregnant with meaning


Go navk to the origin of the divide.


Aristotle the cat took a left impressive turn away gr the original image and ended up crucifying It into the etherial guilted nothingness of abstracted uncertainty

The right should have stayed the coursed route without an need to obsessively right itself over to regain the lost paradise


How can mot other wise little boys love out of the crack, as if fearfully out of it , seek to stay within it, ?


He knows as well go the clock shrinking and other supernatural designs as dolly could have it

as if wisdom traveled even to the point of coming out of the crack in the cave .

Even before formed out of fish

Brief nine months from fishing

to fill exposure into the light?

No the depths of that exited attachment is tremendous , in the short span of time ,
The miracles withstanding even, say it,

And fearlessly onward into the blue mist void ,

The iron maiden of politicAl expediency starts in that micro titillating second of eternal cosmic time
?and the little boy knows but bravely jumps out
Into the sinlessness of the very nee white light

( and back again) thinking oh yes
That's me jumping again.



So what's the non ending end game of that basic irony there?

Fir there is that one for sure?

The imaged inverting it's self from seeking the real stuff, the one you can be sure of, touch it"s solidity?

Right.

It becomes eclectic and iconic, baroque , thdn the dolly turns it into quasi supernatural with melting clicks over granutd noulders,

While the original, reduces to meet it halfway in aeterma, forging new alliances out of it's self so as nit to birth still.

Still borne suspended in a skillful wonderful relapse ,


Replace it , cut off, into the real from the pleasure principally suspended in-between

That is the little boy foraging g or newer toys for ever and ever and ever


Thinking it's different on the other side if there was one.

If only to weigh them in the balance. If they oppose each other, only one can win, both lose, parts of them stay/go, or they are parts of a whole or composite. Many applications.

Spectrum. Privation. So forth.

Yes, and as we appearently live in a post dialectical world of the possible to the probable in a field of multiplicity, with many binomially connected sets, the shape and countour of things outweigh the nominal choices we need to make.

That's probably in line with the idea of the intuitive grasp of choices breading through the limits of reason that ofevisaged even Kant's critical mind. Of course Christ , a prophet, in addition to being the Son of God, must have been aware if the ancient dialectics.

I may be way off on this , but will follow it up

“Our thinking is a constant process of converting things to abstractions, looking away from the sensory, and attempting to construct a purely spiritual world. Whereas you take the least constant, the most mortal things to your heart, and in their very mortality show the meaning of the world. You don’t look away from the world; you give yourself to it, and by your sacrifice to raise it to the highest, a parable of eternity. We thinkers try to come closer to God by pulling the mask of the world away from his face. You come closer to him by loving his creation and recreating it. Both are human endeavors, and necessarily imperfect, but art is more innocent.“

Narcissus and Goldmund, Hermann Hesse

Maybe someday I’ll read it.

See questions Jesus asked, like Who is the neighbor? See how I added (in Good News of the Kingdom) “the one who is forgiven more loves more“ even though it is not in there? It is in there as a mirror image where he says, “But the one who has little to be forgiven has only a little love to give“. Do you think I have come to bring peace on the earth? Never think it. No, I tell you, not peace, but division! No, I have not come to bring peace, but a sword! Does the law command us it is right to do good on Sabbath days or to do harm – to save life or destroy it?

I like this one better: “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without accepting it.” - Aristotle

So, not wolfing a contradiction without even tasting it.
