The Life Outside
There is nothing which is not you; there is everything outside which is you – all it requires is the perspective sought and seen.
All of us make our own concept of self; we believe that we are limited by the skin we reside in. We are inside the body and bone. We never think / feel / experience that we may be somewhat more.
A revelation of thought – can we be not ourselves as we thought (like all the world’s gospels speak). The wise ones speak that we should not think of the ego (That which resides in the flesh), rather we are what does not reside within the self.
Maybe, I think; just maybe we may be not what we think of the mirror shows us in the first place. Perhaps we are only limited by the small thought in our head. There is this vision which I see of prosperity. Where everyone is knowing / experiencing that they are not who they thought themselves to be. Their life force is not limited in their body (within their flesh) and in fact the truth is diametrically opposite.
The life we envisage as us, is all around us – except for within the body. This is the selfless zen way for all of us to exist in symbiotic relationship, is it not?
When we know that we are everyone we never thought to be – our actions reflect a singular detail for compassion and mercy. For are we not the life that exists outside the body’s breath? Are we not the flesh and skin of everyone around in this universe? Are we not others and are others not us?
This simple revelation or rather the change of perception leads one to exist in peace. In symbiotic love and harmony. It only requires the rewiring of the most recent part of our neural networks (yes it is the most recent and not ancient).
Thoughts which control our perception are like a virus, they take over and spread to each other telepathically. The thought that we are but the life within our skin and bones, so recent and dismal makes us abhor one another. There is no concept of singular, which is disgusting (to say the least).
And the truth so simple yet profound – ancient to say the least; that we are not ourselves. We are the life external, outside the cage structure we have built for ourselves. Look and adore, nature and skies abound. Life and love existing forever in harmony. Think and feel the way nature intended us to be. In simplicity and bliss of all life around
Peace and Bliss
