I don’t take my conclusions about life too seriously; ultimately I don’t take myself too seriously. I perceive the human tendency to believe in their conclusions and in fact their conclusions about self to be a bit absurd. I realize that my expressions are always incomplete expressions; however, they may serve to lead to reflection, contemplation ,inquiry and discussion of which I have come to value and perceive to be a fundamental and important aspect of the unfolding of consciousness.
Change seems to happen regardless of what I write, say or do, but is the quality of change affected by whether or not I bring something authentic of my being or not to life? I suspect, from my heart; that love, openness,compassion, kindness and intimacy promote a different quality of change then violence, hate, anger, ideological or dogmatic obsession or self-absorbed ways do. My own sense is that the change that occurs from each way is quite different and that they arise from a different place of awareness. To sit passively; unengaged in life from the understanding that my involvement in life is unnecessary or from a pursuit of bliss , self-sufficiency or self-mastery is as well lacking in realization of the interconnection of all that exists. I am a fundamental and inseparable part of everything that exists; that can’t really be understood through rational processes as much as a realization arising from an awareness within. That inner awareness has often been compromised by more learned ways of being.
Acting in a way that is focused on making an effort to create change is ultimately not a loving, compassionate, action, however; the energy that emanates from the essence of what I am is curious, compassionate, kind, accepting and intimate in its essence. And it naturally leads to exploration, investigation, connection and an investment in life and living and the mystery that surrounds it. Change arising from that energy is dynamic, vast and something more authentic than effort arising from the self.
