This morning I awoke, read the news of the world and thought about a conversation I had on a Sunday evening a few weeks ago with fellow travelers on this stone — this Third Stone from the Sun. We were sitting around a fire, fired up and having that kind of precious moment. The deep philosophical one conversation and spiritual moment where in total honesty and truth each man expressed the depth of awareness, knowledge, confusion and truth about existence.
“What I’m trying to figure out,” I said, “… is did I volunteer or was I drafted?!!!!”
“Given a choice (for life as a human being or absolute non-existence) for just only one turn,” John said “How could you turn it down.” The flames behind the glassed in fireplace glowed the room warmly.
Weeks later, after the Dance of the Death of the Innocents by the Deceived and Wicked, and thinking about all that occurs in the violence perpetrated by the cowards and fools and unrighteous, who are rightly called SHIT as their complementary description, I’ve finally been able to write and express that I’ve discovered in living. I’m thankful and grateful that before my own transition, I’m able to share my insights to truth with you.
Perhaps the arguments about creation or evolution are simply a different side of the same coin: INEVITABILITY.
Life is nothing less than inevitable.
I must thank the physicist, Dean Rust, for the observation. Many years ago I had the opportunity to discuss the universe with him and, as he said, “Well, Charlie, it only had to happen once.”
Given infinite time (think Toy Story) time does not exist. Time only exists within the construct of space. Space begin only if there is an event in time, followed by an event. Before the prime event, time itself did not and cannot exist. More specifically, time as comprehended by the mind of sentient beings, does not and did not exist. And, by definition and reality, there is but one prime event.
Within the prime event all that exists EXISTS in that instant moment, including space for the successive event (however short the duration between the two). Within space itself life is as an inevitability in probability. The inevitability is certain to occur, thus inevitable in time.
The organization of matter within time is also inevitable, as is the manifestation of life itself in all its forms, shapes and sizes — including the human being, with the ability to perceive mind and manipulate the environment and reality, itself.
An attribute of mind is dreaming and thinking and emotions, mediated by cellular organization of the brain and its function.
Thus, the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.: “… seen the promised land.” Thus inevitable future state. Echoing the words of the spiritual alchemist Jesus: ‘ My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?’
The problem is that one assumes it’s a future state. It is not. Time is an illusion that does not exist. The prime inevitable event exists and in it all that is IS at that instant. As the universe is expanding in movement, every moment of consciousness exists. Only in the mental reality of the mind, time bound, does the vision of the future appear as a future state. In fact and truth, it already exists. It simply has not been experienced by those mortals living in that time-space moment.
That the future state will exist as an experience by those then living mortally is a certainty. Evolution IS the proof of that truth and fact. The emotional perception of that future state, as communicated by those so inspired — including the moral values that produce that state — is inevitable, because it already exists and will be realized inevitably. The realization will be and is as certain as this momentary existence.
“YOU ONLY GO AROUND ONCE!”
Just remeber: It’s NOT about YOU.’ It’s US. We are inevitably ONE, within the prime inevitably, measured through the illusion of time.
