Hi. I'm back. I had some work to do on myself and I'm finally coming around. Certain health issues, family issues and bad habits had to be dealt with and I needed to do it alone...for a few reasons, not the least of which was that for a while, I was doing all I could to hold on to reality. It was really freaky. It was also interesting, thought provoking and enlightening. I would find myself thinking that either one of two things had to be true. Either I was losing touch or I was simply the only person on the planet who could see what was actually happening. I've always enjoyed experiencing new things, even a night in the county lock-up was educational in it's own way and I'm glad I got to visit that part of the world, especially because I did my time in hours...not years. So, seeing as I like new things (after all, that's sort of what we're here for, isn't it?), a trip down delusional lane was OK, especially again, since my visit was of such short duration. All told, it was less that 48 hours and it was absolutely fascinating.
But alas, my decision to stay with life as we know it was a matter of necessity because, whether or not my world DOES exist, I can't communicate with it. I wouldn't know how to get to all of the other dimensions although it IS possible that they have tapped into our internet and they are reading this now. In which case, I'd appreciate it if you guys would send me a message...this place, time and dimension sucks. If you refuse me, you simply are NOT the intelligent beings I've imagined that you ust be. I say that because a form of life that totally disregarded the pain of another life form has not yet developed very well. So, it necessarily follows, if you exist at all...YOU SUCK!
We have beings that don't care about the suffering of others but we also have souls like me who don't really know why I should play by the rules out of love for others who are such low life forms that they can't even salve their own pain by forgiving another's human mistakes. A soul that finds solace in causing another person pain is, in my time, place and dimension, a soul headed for a flood of negative energy. Forgiveness truly is for the one doing the forgiving. The forgivee benefits incidentally, but only one who forgives can rise to a higher level of awareness...and that has benefits that far outweigh any risk in one who thinks much of him or herself. We have a name for those who ail to grasp that concept...its' "immature". And don't for a minute think that maturity ends at 30.
Of course, according to Jaspers, the freest people of all are the insane. That is innately true at so many, if not all, levels.
