How about a Symbol for Free Thinking-Open Ended Philosophy !

Symbol I Painting by DEFryer Copyright

   There are symbols everywhere we look and each one illicits either fear, reverence, politics or power. We have crosses and crescents, hammers and sickles, fists and fishes and many more.

It’s time for a Symbol that will represent something different to everyone who posesses it or a symbol to mean nothing at all.

Symbols of Choice and Freedom, if you will.

Here are a few choices of random nameless symbols brought to life in paint and canvas which were created for this noble cause.

Pick the one that resonates within you and let it represent whatever you wish or nothing at all. They were all assigned numbers instead of names to keep their philosophical integrity intact. Enjoy!

Everything is Energy ; Energy is Everything !

  Energy flows eternally throughout our universe and is boundless beyond our imaginations as mere terrestrial beings.

As human beings we construct electromechanical devices (microchips and circuit boards) to regulate the flow of energy through electronic devices but still most refuse to believe that Universal energy exists. We physically contain energy in batteries and power plants by means of converting one form of energy into another more immediately useful form, yet still refuse to admit that the same energy that powers our technologies is flowing within all of us every moment of every day. Some refuse to believe because their religion considers Universal energy to be heresy or the whispers of the devil since energy has no form worthy of a deity? The pragmatic types see energy as a fantasy substance used by hippies to think about when they get high. They view it only as a power source for their laptops, cell phones and wide screen TV’s.

Our brains and hearts operate on electrical energy input as do our nervous systems and every other function of our body. It’s what makes our arms move and our eyes blink and our brains function. We use the term ‘take some time off to recharge your batteries’ yet we don’t connect the dots and realize that it is a true statement of fact as beings of this universe. Energy is everywhere, in everything and necessary to what we call ‘life’. When someone is ‘run down’ from expending too much energy they need to sit calmly without expending energy and reclaim the energy they lost before they can go on.

It’s just not cool or pragmatic for some human beings to envision our universe as a molecular soup with energy flowing throughout each of us, being exchanged by each of us then converted by each of us, as a means of locomotion through our universe. If our eye’s weren’t so primitive we might see things as they really are and we could then concentrate on our ‘energy selves’ instead of the primitive beings we see when using our primitive senses?

One day we may realize that our earth, our sun and the galaxy we live in as well as every other galaxy in our physical universe will someday be recycled by the same forces that created our primitive carbon selves in the first place. As energy beings we can and will live on forever in the formation of a new universe and in a new form of energy where our understanding will be limited only by the senses we develop to ‘see’ who we are and where we are.

Meditation is a great way to focus on our ‘energy beings’ as we have our eyes closed to shut off our primitive sense of sight and can therefore concentrate on ‘brain sight’ and the energy of our thoughts. When we can let go of the beast within we can ‘see’ our universe as it really is and with enough repetition and training we may be able to ‘see’ despite our primitive senses?

I have some great meditation music and guided meditations from Dragon Rising Publishing that I use nightly to regain some inner peace and control over stress and everyday life.

Try it out and enjoy your own journey through our world of energy.

Wilderness and the Human Soul

 Wilderness

    Most people raised in major metropolitan areas seem to have an ominous view and definition of wilderness as being a place of desolate, forbidding wasteland where cell phones won’t work, computers can’t find power or a wi-fi link and technology as a whole, along with the 21st century, appear to come to a screeching halt. They figure that if they dare to enter the wasteland, the only outcome imagineable is imminent peril and impending doom. On a planet where every continent and previously unknown island has been charted and mapped by an orbiting satellite and almost every forest and jungle has been explored, a lot of people just don’t feel comfortable anymore around nature and trees and animals and open vistas. They yearn for the solice of concrete underfoot and solid structures to run back and forth between during their busy urban days. They only feel safe and comfortable within the best urban cocoon their money can buy.

The wilderness has beasts and bugs and wild waters and lots of dirt and weather and danger. The beasts can sometimes be unbehaved and uncivilized towards human beings and the weather doesn’t wait for a weatherman’s forecast. Nothing is predictable nor subservient to our will, Mother Nature makes all the rules and your life depends on just how well you follow them while you are within her realm.

I, myself, have been in the wilderness more times than I have fingers and toes and can attest to the fact that it is the last place on earth that a human being can really feel like a being of the planet. The term ‘being‘ is significant because in the wilderness there is no distinction between human ‘being’ and animal ‘being’. Every bug is a being. Every fish is a being as well. All beings coexist in Mother nature’s realm as equals and the only master is the Mother herself. It’s a very humbling experience for a ‘master of the planet’ human being to enter the wilderness as a participant in the food chain and endure everything that nature can muster. It’s also the most strengthening endeavor that a human being can experience because he or she soon realizes that ‘this is how it all began’. This is what it’s like to be off-the-grid.

We were once in touch with nature and dependent on it’s bounty before we pretended to conquer it. A human being alone in nature will almost surely be humbled and grateful to have survived once they have endured and experienced the most level of playing fields. It is the ultimate back to cave man experience if you just open your mind and let your soul experience the freedom to be found in the boundless skies and endless horizons. Meditation in a wild place is so easy it’s almost involuntary as you become one with nature and submit to it’s awesome power and deafening silence.

As this blog progresses I will also be sharing some personal experiences and insights along the way in hopes of enlightening a few of the souls trapped in concrete and electrical wire. Please do come again. Happy trails…
