layers of reality; dance of life
On the very surface, there's what we observe and the 'shit that happens' to us (orchestrated events we cannot see 'behind the scenes'). As a very important side note: animals cannot lie. They know what's in our heart: they know if we're afraid or angry; they sense this intuitively via body signals and eyes. So a good 'thermometer' of individual / group feelings is animal perceptions / reactions. This indicates there are layers to our reality. Let's list them out:
superficial / outward / apparent
'dance of hearts' / love / hatred / bonding / rejection / emotional
(co-leveled with above) 'dance of minds' / intellectual / 'world of ideas'
'dance of spirits' / core of being / true character / 'heart of hearts'
So there are three levels and four layers:
'what we see'
'dance of hearts' - 'dance of minds'
'dance of spirits'
So we see human life is not a play, it's not a performance on a stage, it's not a game, it's not a simulation, it's real - and it's a Dance. i contend the deepest level is God. So when we union with God, we can see all the layers and Dance for what they are / what It Is. This may sound pathetic for the uninitiated, but the deeper i look into physics and the structure of reality, the more i simply see Myself in the mirror and view the Creator that's in me .. In my essay on 'balance in curvature' i neglected to mention one critical fact: it depends on the first Cause; that particular model of our universe cannot exist without God exploding the singularity. So if that view of reality is correct, we've basically proven God exists. Similarly, you must believe in God to accept that view of reality. There's no force in the universe which can 'extricate matter from a black hole' (other than Hawking evaporation) but this is not evaporation - this is the explosion of a singularity - that requires God, the first Cause.
This is the irony of human science. We try so hard to build a model of our universe without God and find the only realistic model, at the deepest level, requires God.
When you union with God, you actually can See behind the scenes so nothing is hidden from your view - all layers are transparent and you See from the 'bottom up' (you see from the Dance all the other layers are superficial). Even our most visceral layer - the dance of hearts - is still merely superficial to the core Dance.
In my relationship with Richard and Kristin, the wonderful educators in the American southwest, i learned the true value of trust and respect, firsthand. There was no filter, no barrier, no obscurity,.. This lesson was poured directly into my soul. It took me years to understand and appreciate it, but the lesson was there and inescapable. This provided the foundation for Better Way and Basic Human Rights. So really who i must thank is Elisha. She was the bright star which all these events unfolded around .. i've related this story in other essays so i'll not repeat it here .. So thank you Elisha, Richard, Kristin, and Alicia. i can now See You in the Dance and am not distracted by superficiality.
It may sound crazy or delusional or 'making things up' or trivial human insecurity .. Or perhaps some form of compensation .. But you know what that is and the process of you reading this? It's part of the dance of minds .. Your eyes are connected to your mind and heart. i normally try to reach your heart directly but that's not easy .. i'm not trying to 'win your heart' or sympathy or pity. That's repulsive to me. Pity sickens me. i never want your pity. i want/need you to Understand in your Heart of hearts what i'm saying is for you alone - and for Everyone..
i'm NOT Jesus, i'm NOT Buddha, i'm not Mohammed's kid brother ;) i'm just that humble Michigan kid i told you about in my previous essay.. just sam. i like to say "sam iam" for several reasons: it reminds me of our Creator, i had friends in high school who called me that affectionately, and of course Doctor Seuss .. Part of the reason i showed you Arthur's picture on my 'balance of curvature' essay is because i anticipated i'd need to write about Arthur next (which i did). And also Arthur is a good example of 'God with us'. He's innocent, he's pure, he's clean, he's presently untainted by human sickness, perversion, delusion,.. He's Clean and as much a part of God as any of us can be .. The sick/crazy/perverse thing is: his mom doesn't believe in God. Of course - she's free to be that way .. But far away from me and Arthur - SO THANK GOD SHE'S IN AMERICA! See how everything's for the best? See how the dance/Dance works?
Those who reject God are always free to do so.. Those who choose to embrace God will never be hampered by them because God is Within.
People keep talking about 2012 as a transformation in human society - iron age transforming into golden age etc etc .. This view is good. But a better view is inner transformation. We need to choose to acknowledge God or reject Her. i'm asking you to make a decision right now: accept Her Love or pretend She doesn't exist. It's very simple - you choose what to believe. You always have that freedom. My point however is: which view has more inherent meaning?
i think you Know that answer..
