We have always known that the creative forces which have put this physical universe in place were beyond definition .... so awesome ... beyond understanding ....... but regardless, we have always tried to contemplate the nature of it. Our concepts of personhood don't really help us in our contemplations. The English language, and possibly all… Continue reading Superpersonhood
Is there a system in everything we see?Scientists fear this question, because if they say yes, then the religion folks jump on them and say that the system is some sort of intelligent design(er).... ie. Some sort of god. So, instead they (not all of them, but as a group) lean away from admitting that… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness as an explanation for everything which Exists
In the beginning was Awareness.And the Awareness was like an ocean.The Ocean of Awareness was without form or without "things".... no divisions.... only Unity.There was and will always be, nothing but the Oceanic Awareness.And the Ocean of Awareness (the "God" of everything) , forever inquisitive, discovered how to pull themself into discreet parts, and the… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness – a continuing story…
Early on, in Greek thought and Oriental thought (Indian thought was a bit more complex), humans thought atoms were the smallest thing that existed (the word in several languages means or suggests "indivisible"). In the last century, we have moved through a number of deeper levels to smaller and smaller particles. In those early days… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness as the Source of All
i feel that a comparison is necessary between an "Awareness story", and the "Biblical story" which is widely accepted by modern religious folks, to show why a change of our thinking and perspective is even necessary..... The way the biblical story is interpreted in our modern times, there is a chasm between the "Creator" and… Continue reading Why is “Awareness is Father of all” different than “God is the father of all”?
If Awareness, or Oceanic Awareness is the root of everything, then most of our assumptions about the physical universe and its "Primordial" need to be blown away.... it would be a "Start from scratch" scenario..... (and i sense that this is the case) A general housecleaning of our assumptions.....As the new framework emerged, all the… Continue reading What does a worldview based on Awareness look like?
In the beginning, there was Awareness, and that Awareness is "Being" eternal. And the Awareness started "Doing", and began building "Physicality". And the beginning of that physicality was the pulling apart bits of Oceanic Unity into dualistic separated particles, which could be used to build more and more complex units. (Pretty difficult to build with… Continue reading What if there is only Awareness…..
Its strange, (if we practice "being present in the moment"), how sometimes the most common of events can cause a huge shift in the way we see things........ and can cause a domino effect through our awareness...... (This required no drugs, alcohol or other mind altering substances...... just practicing attention and presence of mind..... )… Continue reading Sentience
So.... here "I" am...... i find myself having been born into this Physical World, with a sense that something is missing..... i seem to always be lost in a swirling tornado of needs, desires, dis-satisfaction with my lot in life..... How does some concept of me being born into this World of Physical Things help… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness – What does this all mean to “me”! (Level 6)
If we as humans are in fact Oceanic Awareness experiencing the Physical World, then how does this heal my sense of being Orphaned? If Oceanic Awareness is in fact our "Parent Root", then it would only be reasonable that the senses and experiencing mechanisms this system has developed in me, would be full and complete… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness – How do we “Practice Living in the Present in Oceanic Awareness”?
