On Beyond “The Virus”

By meestereric / July 21, 2020 /

I recently had a brief exchange with a friend via text, while I was busy working in my garden. I realize I didn’t express myself clearly at the time about “the virus.” So this is an attempt to make that more clear, and “set the record straight” as they say (though it will never be…

On Beyond Resistance

By meestereric / May 18, 2020 /

This is a more an artistic, “synchronistic musing” as a friend called it, than a philosophical or logical exploration. So read it as such. Enjoy …  Sitting on the balcony, pondering a friend’s request to expand on the “RESISTANCE IS FUTLE” section in my “The Dawning of Love” post, saying “…to me that is most…

Does Consciousness Ever Die?

By meestereric / January 21, 2020 /

Does Consciousness Ever Die, Disappear or “Go Under”? Q: If I am consciousness (which I know I am)… and, if consciousness gets lost under General Anesthesia, what does it mean regarding my “life”? When am I ever born and when do I die? Or, is consciousness more like a function, a process… like digestion and…

The Master Game

By meestereric / January 5, 2020 /

Here we are trying to make little jokes, but life itself is a joke. We are born into a body only in order to discover the game is to realize you’re not a body! What’s the point? Why go through all that misery, suffering and craziness, falling in love with an illusion, living in a…

On Beyond Beliefs: What Is Self-Realization?

By meestereric / October 31, 2019 /

When I ask myself this morning, where am I, this being on this…whatever it is: this “pathless path”, this understanding (for the benefit of the reader, I didn’t actually say that to myself but was reflecting wordlessly, but wanting to write it, as a practice)?

No Body No Problem

By meestereric / October 15, 2019 /

Neither scenario or worldview that society hands us, make any sense: neither the religious model nor the scientific one: 1.

By meestereric / September 25, 2019 /

“…a non-mental [material] world is inevitably abstract.” – Bernardo Kastrup “No question can be there regarding the time, place and cause of the origin of this world, for these themselves are part of the world, for these themselves form parts of the world. The question seeks to have an explanation of the whole in terms…

Matter and Acceptance

By meestereric / August 23, 2019 /

Matter and the world is an abstraction. What we actually know, directly, is awareness, consciousness, Being, whatever you want to call the nameless formless we Are: what every thing appears in; the continuity behind the change, the solid ground behind the appearance of a body, mind and world. Physicists haven’t been able to find matter…

On Beyond Back-To-Nature Philosophies

By meestereric / July 16, 2019 /

Listening to a popular “animal communicator”, I realized the core issue with what she was saying. While I appreciate what they do with specific animals and species, and it touches my heart deeply (I love animals, and plants, and minerals…), there is an assumptions and an attitude about humans and the planet and Life and…
