On Freedoms of ChoiceOn Freedoms of Choice
Sentience is Freedom,
yet sentience attempts limitation:
endless rules, codes of conduct and ingrained beliefs;
There are only two rules, two pillars:
Choice: the foundation of the Freedoms.
Respect: the foundation of ethical interaction.
Freedom is the right to act
in accordance with Who You Are,
while Respect tailors those actions to the benefit of All.
A deep and profound respect for others entails
a Love of others,
the well-being of others,
and a respect for the Freedoms of others.
These Freedoms, however, are more than a simple moral code:
they entail the liberty of
beliefs, and opinions
actions, and speech,
and Who They Are.
On the Sanctity of Life and MoOn the Sanctity of Life and Morality
The moral code,
though the one-who-unites,
and the civilizer,
is the simple understanding that Life is Sacred.
All Life is Sacred,
and has an profound role
within the Whole of Existence,
all Life living from each other.
The same is true for human culture:
Lives that exist communally,
applying this understanding to their Lives,
will strengthen the community, and each other,
with their actions.
On the Non-Absolutes of ExisteOn the Non-Absolutes of Existence
In the real World,
there is no absolute Right:
no absolute Good.
But we can try.
Evil is the name we give to those most heinous
the unrealistic depictions of immorality,
where criminal actions are made
solely for the purpose of immorality,
In this they know Who They Are,
but have violated the Sanctity of Life,
the only moral code to be followed,
and so are further from the goal of ascension,
than those beginning the journey.
On the Highest PathOn the Highest Path
Although the Highest path
is the best choice in a situation,
positively affecting the highest number of people
as well as the ambient,
one must always consider those who would be hurt
by this path.
The end does not justify the means:
for spiritually, and ethically,
an enlightenment or betterment of the people is nothing
if tainted by ones actions in order to achieve this end.
On the Four Stages of ExistencOn the Four Stages of Existence
This stage is only ever out-grown
when ascension has been attained.
This stage of life encompasses
all of the Change, Experience, Conditioning, and Deciding Action,
the discovering of Who You Are,
and the relationship one holds with all else.
The stage of Knowing exists when one knows
the action to be taken in an event,
and on a personal level, where one understands Who You Are.
Because every event
has different (and multiple) solutions,
Knowing will occur at different times for different people,
even in the same circumstance.
This also teaches us tolerance, and diversity.
The stage of Knowing can be entered,
many times by a single entity,
with regard to many different events,
in accordance to the understanding, and spiritual development
which that person has.
Within the stage of Knowing,
there are many levels, including Knowledge
on an individual, or specific event,
and the understanding of the Whole,
and the interconnectedn
On the Absolutes of ExistenceOn the Absolutes of Existence
In the world of the infinite
nothing remains the same:
Life is ever-changing, and remains ever-changing.
In fact, the only constant is change.
In the same way that Life is change,
so is Death.
Death brings a great change within the Self,
within the family, and the community.
Yet it is only a change.
A Living Being can do nothing if not experience the World.
And in this experiencing of Change,
one discovers Who They Are
in relationship to the World,
for there is no individuality without reference
to something else.
Every action leaves its mark upon us,
what we call conditioning:
the minds change according to an event experienced.
This will range from simple disciplinary action
to an epiphany of understanding the why.
Without conditioning, there is no evolution,
within the mind, or body;
and if the purpose of Life is to evolve
to a state of understanding
(both of themselves and their relationship
with that which
On the Purpose of LifeThe goal of Life is to attain a level of development
where the goal is no longer to beget more Life.
At that point, the purpose of Life
ceases to be about biology,
and instead psychology.
By that time, some form of spirituality
is very likely to have arisen,
leading to questions of the soul.
As soon as one asks, What is the purpose of Life?",
the answer becomes, To become the best version of your Self
that you can be.
Once this is realized (and often long before),
the journey begins to discover the answer of Who You Are,
which of course leads back to spirituality.
And once that answer has been discovered,
you have transcended biology,
and know exactly what to do.
After this ascencion, the physical form matters solely
for the purpose of one's work:
a conceptual, or artistic entity may thus exist
without physical form but for means
of transmitting their ideas.
Some things do not stop for TiSome things do not stop for Time
Time is one of them.
the echo of our words
are inexorable wave patterns
expanding to emptiness,
and a sense of beyond
Death: Brontë's carriage ride,
his mute figure ferrying souls,
burdened with their unfinished lives.
Some things do not stop for Time;
and I am one of them.
