Compassion

A heart being used as a symbol of love. Photo ...

A lot of times I expect people to respond a certain way to something that I have told them.  I feel a little unnerved when they respond in a completely different manner.  I am expecting interest and questions and I get a shake of the head.  I am expecting them to understand something that they could never completely understand because their perspective is different than mine.  They do not have all of the information that I have.  Either through neglect of me telling them, their previous life experiences, or even just their memory or perception of events.  Everything is completely different than mine.  How can I possibly expect their reaction to be the same as mine?

Yet, we are all here sharing this one experience.  We are separate at a physical level, but we are united at a spiritual level.  How can those levels reside in complete ignorance of each other?  Or maybe there is information shared, but it is given in small doses so that we do not notice it.  A gradual change and merging.  It all starts from within.

You can’t expect to end the world of suffering at a wish.  It starts with you.  Give yourself the loving-kindness that you deserve.  Really feel it in your heart and let it expand out to your whole body.  To your family.  To friends.  To people you might possibly hate or hold a grudge towards.  To people you meet in passing.  To people you don’t know.  To the whole world.  To the whole of existence that you cannot even possibly begin to imagine.

Slowly and gradually we begin to become one with everyone that we meet.  We treat them with the respect that we want ourselves.  We empathize with their situation since we can relate to it.  They are not suffering… we are.  The sooner we let go of that desire to see them in a different situation, the sooner that we will ourselves be free from suffering.  They only suffer because we think they suffer.  We only suffer because we project our suffering on other people.  It can end.

Possibilities

Big Crunch overview

I keep wanting to draw some correlation between the number of possible five minute audio files (2^211M) and the number of estimated number of hydrogen atoms in the universe (10^60).  I keep going back to that audio file representing all possible audio snippets including things that did and did not happen.  That audio span contains me driving an Audi R6 down the autobahn before I shoot my James Bond rockets into the douchebag in front of me.  The audio file also has all possible scenarios of everything.  You could even take consecutive 5 minute spans to form a story reaching from the big bang to the big crunch.  Everything is possible in that five minutes.  EVERYTHING!

So that five minutes of audio holds potential.  The same is true of the universe.  These different particles just waiting in a null state ready to be perceived.  Who knows what the count of particles is.  It is large.  If the number of hydrogen atoms has been determined to be finite, then the number of particles must be finite as well.  But at the same time, it represents all possibilities.  Everything that could happen is represented by a finite number.  Every possible thing, even the stuff that we can’t fathom  as possible.

And what sits outside of that?  Who is the viewer of that?  Who is the Observer?  I know what I want my answer to be, but I cannot say it with conviction.  I think that part of the reason is that I want to jump to seeing it all.  I want to jump to seeing something specific.  I must first fully see my self.  I must first fully see this possibility as it is.  I must see this moment, and what is in front of me.   Let it be.  I shouldn’t try to interpret and build a past.  Something may have happened before this and something may happen after this, but it is not happening now.

If I am thinking about something in the past, then it is a memory and not the actual event.  Any feelings that I have are based on that memory and not the event itself.  Since my feelings are not based on the current moment then I should be swayed by them.

The Real You

What you are, what you think you are and what others think you are, are all different. What is the real you? What you think you are is shaped by what you think others think of you. You have developed a way to think of yourself that you would like others to adopt. Unfortunately, other people experience you and they have their own ideas about what you are.  Sometimes they will think better of you and sometimes they will think worse.  Mostly what they think of you is all tied up in what they think of themselves. Somewhere in there each of you has a real you that is lost in all those ideas.

In order to get a sense of the real you, you need to notice what it is that you want people to think about you. If you notice a difference between what you think about you, what you want people to think about you, and what you think people think of you, the real you lies in that difference. You are not right, they are not right, there is an unknown something in there that is the real you.

Most of our energy is spent creating and projecting and protecting an idea of ourselves that is constantly changing. Beneath it all is something, something wonderful.
