Thoughts on The Meaning of Life And The
The truth I can tell
you is not the real truth.
The words I use can
only mean what they mean to me, and cannot mean
exactly the same thing to you.
All I can do is speak
of images, of ideas, that may touch a part of
your mind, that may awaken an understanding of a truth.
You may find your own
path that truth.
There is more to you
than what you think of as yourself, the person who thinks of you as
You -- that person;
"me" -- live in this dimension and in other
dimensions as well.
You -- that person;
"me" -- are one part of a being who exists in and
across many dimensions.
You may or may not be
aware of these other parts of yourself.
You may know of the
other parts of yourself from your dreams.
parts of you that exist in other dimensions are conscious, self-aware
beings, just as you are a conscious, self-aware being, who think of
themselves as "me", also.
Like you, they may or
may not be aware of the other parts of themselves
in other dimensions -- you.
Like you, they may
have a vague sense of your existence from their
What you think of as
your subconscious is your sense of these other
people who are a part of you and of whom you are a part.
or not you are aware of the other persons who are a part of the total
being that is you, they take part in your life and decisions that are
made in your life.
You may do things
based on decisions made by these people who are a
part of you in other dimensions.
may be that when you believe you are deciding something, that decision
was already made in other dimensions by other beings who are an unknown
part of what you think of as yourself.
You have free will,
but some aspects of your life may already have been
chosen by these other parts of you.
And you may be making
decisions about them, about what they will do,
unbeknownst to you, unbeknownst to them.
The people around you
also exist in other forms in other dimensions.
part of you that exist in other dimensions may know the parts of other
people that exist in other dimensions. You may have have ongoing,
different relations or interactions with them in those other dimensions.
You want to know where
you came from, where you are going, what you
should do and why.
You have to decide if
you want to be a part of the swirling dance of
the universe, or go your own way and do your own dance.
Where did you come
from? You came from an idea, like everything else.
Where are you going?
Eventually, back to oblivion, but that's not
important. What matters is what you do while you're getting there.
What should you do?
You should experience life as it appears to be.
That is the purpose of life.
You are made of mind,
there is no such thing as matter.
Just as you are made
of an idea, so, too, is all that appears to be
Pretend that it is
real, and it will be real.
Experience life as it
appears to be, and it will be so. That is what
life wants of you.
You are the way that
the conscious mind of the universe experiences
Watch the red sun
setting into the
horizon. Smell fruits, flowers and spices. Remember them. Weave
something. Listen to the sound of the wind soughing through the trees.
Ask your heart and
mind to remember all that you have been and done.
What do I have to do to be a good person?
are two things you have to do to be a good person and go to heaven (or
live a good moral life and be at peace with yourself, if you do not
believe in heaven, or "be saved", if that is how you phrase it). One is
easy and the other is hard.
first one is you have to be kind
to others. That's easy. Most of us want to be kind to others anyway,
and will be so if possible. Usually it is only the pressures of life --
we get hungry and cold and tired -- that drive us to be unkind. It
is the impulse to be kind that leads (misguides) people to become
hard one is that you have to forgive everyone
who has ever harmed you. Forgive and forget as if it never happened.
Every hurt or injustice you have ever suffered. Every emotional wound
you have licked and loved and nurtured for years. Even if you are in
the right and your transgressor is plainly in the wrong (but don't be
so sure that there isn't another side to the story). Even when you were
the innocent victim. *Especially* when you are the innocent victim. You
will never get to heaven carrying a grudge. It will drag you back down
to reincarnate in this physical dimension.
Is there any special thing/way I should eat to
be a good person?
Don't eat animals that were raised or killed cruelly, but
other than that, what you
eat is a health, not a moral issue. Nature is red in tooth and claw. We
have to eat to live and we have to kill to eat, vegetarians just the
same as animalarians. That is the way this universe works. Plants are
just as alive, and just as worthy of the life bestowed on them by their
creator, as we are, and their lives are just as precious to them in
their way as ours are to us. To only kill plant life in order to eat to
live and spare animal life is to say that one form of life is superiour
to the other. That is not for us to say. It may seem sad and cruel to
us. Not for nothing is life in this dimension called a vale of tears.
We have to assume that it will be made clear to us after we have left
How Did We Get Here?
By evolution. Evolution
is not what you have been taught, if you have been taught
"Darwinist"-mutationism. Evolution is the coming together or
co-operation of individual units to create a synergistic whole. This is
how the hydrogen atoms created in the "Big Bang" ultimately became you:
The simple definition of evolution is the progression from the simple
to the complex. See The Octave of
Evolution for a rough outline of my Theory of The Evolution of
Everything By the Aggregation of Component Parts.

fulfillment and being in touch with your humanity, look to the arts.
And while there are many fine pieces of art in the world, while you are

In a way, they are like mantras. You cannot describe them in words. You
can only let them speak to you non-verbally. Ultimately, to live a
completely healthy lifestyle, you must find something within yourself
that cannot be expressed or taught or communicated in words. Ultimately, I think the best advice for
anyone on how to live is in the song "Row, row, row your boat" -- take
it easy as you travel the stream of life and try to be happy, for this
is all just a dream.
