FORGIVENESS

I want to live by the “doctrine” that ALL beings deserve happiness, health, and love without exception. In conclusion, that would mean that it makes sense to FORGIVE everyone and to do my best to be as UNCONDITIONALLY accepting of reality as I can be. That is how I intend to REALLY make a positive impact on the world. Everything else I do is secondary to that ONE aim. That is what I want to be the driving force behind all that I do: not EGO, but the desire to become UNCONDITIONALLY LOVING.

SIGNIFICANCE

Significance would therefore imply the existence of some “threshold” between “just enough information” and “too much information” in terms of making actual decisions in finite time and space using finite energy.

SANITY

I am not writing this to garner sympathy. I am writing this to CONNECT the dots between what lead to me having a series of mental breakdowns and what lead me to “see the light beneath the darkness.” The thematic THREAD spanning that winter in 2016 to this autumn in 2018 is this: the search for personal SPACE. Without the “right to retreat” into a “private space,” it has been impossible for me to really REST in between all that I needed to do.

MINIMALISM

The above list of goals might sound like jail to my ego, but my ego has no faith in the process. I do. I have an intuitive sense of “direction” that compels me to act without over thinking about it. At the very least, I can have faith in that. I think it might be my “inner compass” connecting me up with a legit “higher power.”

OPPORTUNITY

So a little comic relief is not a bad thing now and then, but every day is too much to be a comedian without pay. My life is not a 24/7 freak show. Sorry to disappoint. I am closed for business and I am not here to entertain you and your “quiver full” of children (which you think are God’s gift to the universe and that the Earth can totally support your rate of indiscriminate procreation).

AUTONOMY

All I seem to “own” is the awareness I am “granted” for the time that I “get to” exist. So nothing I own lasts forever. I am made out of “stuff” that is essentially recycled energy as part of the larger universe. That seems to be the truth.
