There were two entities. One was rather crass. It merely went on as an extension of society… immoral, indifferent, separate, closed, common, compulsive, stale, rather indifferent about nature, respectable. There was another entity. It was open, compassionate, aware, whole, moral beyond the ills of society, in close relationship with nature, global. Highly spiritual, it did not care to belong to any separative government nor religion that (separates man from man contributing to war). It was a danger to all separative elements of the false.
One of the entities was often bored. It would frequently need to find escape in all kinds of entertainment (and with various forms of drugs). It was often composed of recurring fears. It depended on walls of isolation for its very existence (isolated existence). The other entity was often content in and of itself. That self, however, was nothing to be measured, for no limited walls defined it by limited space nor limited boundaries. Perceiving that it was not separate from the fears, the fears were understood and quickly dissipated; either that or they never existed (or needed to exist) in the first place. Limitation breeds fear. Limitation is of measurement and recognition; (recognition is a form of measurement).
One of the two minds continued to go deeply beyond itself to where there was no measurement, no time. The other mind measured constantly. Its essence mostly involved time and measurement. Measurement takes (and is) time. One of the minds was satisfied with superficial things; one of the minds went far beyond the superficial. One of the minds (without the measurements of equations) understood all about existence, time, and the timeless. One of the minds did not care about anything much other than about small details and banal experiences; it understood little of time and nothing concerning the timeless. It, unfortunately, was never visited by anything immensely beyond the mundane.
Oh yes, to be that open mind! Well written and superb photo. 🙂
Thank you much, Scifi! 🙂 It’s been very cold here in Illinois lately!
It’s nearly February, so warmer weather around the corner? 🙂
February is often even colder! 🙂
simple brain of monkey prefer sacred to profane but it hard in midst of darkness to see light sometime.
There sure is a lot of darkness, these crazy days, Mr. Monkey! Be a shining star! 🙂
all over the world there are entities like the ones you described like there is ebony and ivory on a piano. Let’s make a club of entities that go deeply beyond themselves and you are the president. Then we have at least one intelligent president in the USA, hehe.
Thanks, Mitza, but i wouldn’t want to be president of such a club. Such a club could do things by intelligent consensus without the need for a leader.
What they have now, for president in the U.S., is abominable. He is very unbalanced. A man like that with the nuclear code! What were people thinking?! The world has a real crazy on its hands and we are in for real problems if he remains in office.
Your prose is so very thought provoking. It’s a kind of “Sunday school” for me.. so to speak! Thank you for always inspiring my inner spirit.
Thank you much, Lori! Keep that spirit glowing brightly! 🙂 … and keep staying close to nature!
You sound rather desperate, Tom. Can’t say I blame you!
🙂 Not desperate. Passionate!
A good descriptor. Thanks.
I was wondering if the two entities were in the same mind and the two minds in the same heart…
They are of one universal mind. However, one of them doesn’t realize it and (likely) never will. The entities who do not realize it are much more numerous than the other kind… but who’s counting! 🙂
Thank you, OM! 🙂 The way things are looking now… it seems rather elusive for most.
Beautiful photo 🙂 It’s very hard to make good photos of these kinds of animals.
