Beyond limited space…

13 comments

There is space between what is seen outwardly (i.e., there in the outer environment) and — for most of us — there is space between what is considered the central controller (i.e., the “I”) and the other (controlled) thoughts.  It may be, however, that there is no space between the so-called central controller and the other thoughts whatsoever.  Correct perception would be the thoughts or images of the mind (including the thought of “I”) without the imagined space (of using them at a distance) that most people have (and “are”).  A mind with less self-deception would function more accurately with less friction and conflict than would a mind full of falsities and concocted limited space.  Asserting power and domination (inwardly), when it really isn’t there, may be one of the reasons why people assert power outwardly, trying to dominate over others (or other life forms) while not perceiving their true relationship with them.  True relationship, which often involves real compassion, insight, and holistic seeing, is what negates limited space and superficial domination.  So many of us extend outwardly what we are inwardly.  So many of us take this inward separation, domination, and limited space and (also) utilize it to look outwardly.  Indifference is often what then occurs.   All thought is limited, but thinking that one is something separate from thought (controlling it) from some sort of inward distance… is much more limited.

Instead, we can transcend inner (false) conflict, transcend separation (that really isn’t there if one sees accurately) and go beyond mere domination and isolation.  We can tear down the walls that separate and divide us.  We cannot do that fully, however, unless we go beyond our primitive inner separations and fragmentary ways.  We can do this.  There is something magical and whole beyond limited inner and outer perspectives, beyond mere (absorbed) limited space and conflict.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  2. “There is something magical and whole beyond limited inner and outer perspectives, beyond mere (absorbed) limited space and conflict.” That is a new level of space! When or if that happens, will we even realize it. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your insights, Tom. Inspiring!
