There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.Albert Einstein
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.Oscar Wilde
The Philosopher’s Corner
Greetings everyone. I hope everyone has health, wellbeing, and happiness in this new era we seem to be emerging into. Today’s post is about one of my favorite subjects: The realization of Self through Love.
The physicist Albert Einstein saw the true power of human perception. He realized in his theory of relativity that we could not have a universe without human consciousness entering into it. In short, the universe perceived is greatly affected by the consciousness that would dream some new way to perceive it in the future. Miracles are abound. Where once there was only a barren field, now a house may lie in the middle of an Oasis.
See how the nature of miracles work. I know, one may begin to question: That is not a miracle. It is a figment of human consciousness. But can you begin to perceive how that very figment of thought, nothing more than an element of etherial presence began a chain reaction to manifest into physical existence. Thus the nature of miracles, from nothing… something emerges.
To realize Self is to achieve higher levels of consciousness. It is not to realize a finite point. While much debate exists around this quote, I love it’s intent and will attribute it at least to the spirit that the Buddha left us.
It is better to travel well than to arrive.Buddha
To realize Self, we must learn to travel well. It is not a destination, but the journey that matters. This journey does have a beginning and an end within this physical existence. Travel, but be kind to yourself. You are a miracle in the making.
Prayers, love, and blessings fellow travelers. May you Believe… Achieve… and Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
Siddhartha: The Psychology of Realizing our Inner Potential
I wrote Siddhartha: The Psychology of Realizing our Inner Potential as a psychoanalysis of the Buddha’s plight to realize his inner potential. It is based upon the novel Siddhartha, written by the Nobel Laureate author Hermann Hesse. In it, I will take you through a storyline about through the 4 seasons of life.
Like Siddhartha, you too will explore the wonder of traveling through the spring of childhood plight, and celebrate the arrival of summer passion common to romantic love’s delight. You will wax and wane through the Fall of middle-age, sit back and reflect upon the the sun’s night-sea’s journey in Winter’s wise-age. I truly hope you enjoy.
