PostSubject: The great life    Fri Oct 23, 2015 4:04 pm

Because none are born a god, the great life is always a large part imprisonment; greatness must stand against something other than great to exist, also within a great human. The battle is a life only if the monster is strong enough, says the philosopher, and goes deeper into the cave as the scientist and the mystic halt. The Greek myth describe what he finds there. And out of this comes a society, so splendorous as the flower of time itself, so that its seedlings fill the web of time and time becomes green, lush, full of world an wonder and here, now, are we reflecting on this in the pearl of a fish eyed orblet of dew, only that, like dew in a field. Or are we the boot that mashes the blades of grass and steps on the ladybug? Or perhaps the lightning holding its breath above in the dense purple clouds? Or the tendon hewn out of marble, from which another orblet rolls into infinity, why have they made our consciousnesses so deep as to be able to think of such trivial things...

I am not a god???? Well, I feel and believe I have certain god-like qualities. smile

Parts of all life can be viewed as imprisonment. However, life is how its viewed and few are incarcerated. Confined time is a negative and I choose to see more of freedoms (positives).

The consciousness is like everything.... it needs hard work to be able to maximize but it also needs trivial things to rest and amuse itself!

Freedoms could be considered negatives, as they arent necessities, not positive givens.
Many today are changed by their freedom.

A code, a binding word, can be liberating for the action radius.

The burden of choice.

Is choice really a burden? I believe choice is about accepting responsibility. I agree that sometimes it is not pleasant - this is where forgiveness of oneself comes in. We simply make the best decisions that we can at the time and move forward. Hindsight, further learning and growing often show us, our errors. Live and learn (and forgive yourself).

Isn't the term "burden of choice" like saying life is a burden? I totally revel in life!! No burdens here...
