Mental Dancing

The Universe: It is a dance of energy, made of thought, atomic structures and star dust. I am paraphrasing Albert Einstein there. Not only that though, reality is what we make it, it does not make us. I personally believe that reality is as benevolent or malevolent as we all affirm it to be. Indeed, we ultimately are in the driver seat although results and realities at times take a lot of time, energy and “mystery” to show up. What I mean by “mystery” is as follows: We all have the same materials to work with in reality which are thought, action, generation, matter, energy, space, and time. Although some may agree or disagree with me, everything in existence is made from these basic and realistic building blocks.

Reality in itself can be controlled then, for the force we generate within ourselves ultimately is more powerful than the forces I mentioned and that force is ultimately consciousness. Without consciousness, everything is asleep to higher possibilities. Without consciousness, choices cannot be made, nature defaults fully.

I mention this version of the seat of the driver to tell you that consciousness is the force of nature that controls reality, and however chaotic or disjointed it may look. Like a flight plan you may go off course sometimes, but you will always make your destination if you go toward it, making corrections and keeping track all the while. In the case of that mentioned reality, results are important, not the way you get there, unless you do something illegal, destructive or worst.

Life is a value judgement. and we must live up to the title first in our spirits, then in our minds, and then in physical reality.

Stick the money where the mouth is at all levels because to get anything done, you genuinely have to act on those levels. Generating results is the goal, failure is just a temporary stepping stone. Existence is as good or bad as we let it be good or bad. I remember this George Orwell book called “Animal Farm” and I just have to say this: When we allow permanent failure to overtake us and give up, we also give up our chance to genuinely succeed. When we are persistent and practice persistence, and never quit. We end up great or excellent.

The Reality Of My Life, Simply Told, Without Atmospherics

I am simply blessed to be alive, well and writing is the way I genuinely look at it. Oh, the article could end there without much addition, explaining or what I like to call “overt atmospherics”, but, I will tell it like it is in realistic language, but still it will be a brief article compared to what I wrote in “The Funk Brother Testament” and the “Grits and Sweat Articles”.

First, I would like to say that “going to the beat of a different drummer” or going my own way has been a genuinely persistent and recurring theme throughout my life, right down to my anchored Objectivist ideas about reality, the universe, and intelligent creation. I definitely believe that there is a God, only I believe this, he evolved like we did and advanced to become God. God did not just come out of “nowhere” and I do not believe in a “big bang theory of existence out of nothingness” either. Also, I lean more toward Nathaniel Branden type Objectivism more than Leonard Peikoff type Objectivism in that I do believe that self-esteem and honesty are the immune system and inoculation powers given by God to deal genuinely with reality, but I cannot just say something stupid sounding like “Existence exists and that is it, without prior causes or intelligence behind it”, I just cannot put my mind behind or around that even unrealistic sounding statement. But, I can say, “Existence exists and we ultimately advance enough to control it for ourselves”, indeed, I do believe and understand that we can ultimately advance to become God. I genuinely also believe that anything is possible in genuine reality by rational principles like flight and electricity are possible.

So, I am not only an Objectivist, I am a Christian. I believe in the Lutheran and Gnostic faiths. Martin Luther and Early Christianity soon before Christ with John The Baptist, Mystery School Reality Religions, and during Christ and soon after Christ agree more with the realities I live by anyway, so I am there. I promised you very little large words and atmospherics and I am telling it like it is honestly without fillers, games or double meanings but one, I also am into George Ivanotich Gurdjieff’s and Peter Demianovitch Ouspensky’s Fourth Way esoteric Christianity. At all levels I keep it real, and always do my best to be honest and one with genuine nature and reality instead of fearing it and playing with guilt trips. In fact, I end with my definition of Fully-Integrated Honesty which is that we can all ultimately advance and that there are not any pedagogical infinities. The speed we advance at is up to us, but it is always possible to advance, and there is always a chance to advance. The paths are each of different characters, but the ends are always uniformly the same. We can only advance according to our understanding and meaning. That is all I can say in this treatise. I do not ask anyone to agree with me, but I do ask you to think for yourself and think freely and honestly about reality.
