Over the test of time, every famous name you’ve ever heard in philosophy has been first sought out to be insane and weird.
Einstein, Aristotle, Murphy, Constantine, etc.
For some reason, these names [to just name a few] have said and done things that make more sense to me than anyone could try to explain. In the days where we rely on technology and Google to tell us insight and give us the answers to all of our questions, I read quotes and research from these people. The things these men have said and done make perfect sense to the way our world is and why we are what we are. It’s a shame they were belittled and undermined as they expressed only what they witnessed.
I feel more connected to them as they days go on and last night, I feel like I connected to the feeling they must have felt. Being so obsessed with the bigger picture and studying the sky and the personalities and everything that surrounds it.
Imagine you are standing on the edge of the cliff. You look down with your neck stretched out as far away from your body as possible. You’re looking a little towards the right and you see this dark circle. On the left side of this black circle, you see a shine so bright it’s blinding to your pupil.
This is the moon.
I don’t know if it’s just because I have taken a lot of hallucinogens in my day or what, but last night, I was in the car riding along to hike up to Salt Lake’s Top of the World with some friends. I stare up at the sky almost as much as astronomer’s do. For the first time ever in my life, I was able to break out of the “norm” thinking and saw the moon for how we really are to it.
The thing we look up at every single night, is not above it at all. It’s down, underneath and to the side. I saw the way that in all actually we were not driving straight on a road or standing straight up towards the sky. If you were to take some sticky shoes and walk up the side of the wall and stand with your feet in the corners where the wall and ceiling touch, you would be in the correct position of whatever you were doing last night at midnight.
We are not in fact looking “up” when we see the stars, moon, and sun.
Because of this thing called Gravity, we’re held down to whatever ground is underneath us, giving us the illusion that “up” is truly up.
To see this with no telescope or calculator or locator. To see it with the naked eye was magical and resonated deep within my spirit. Everybody has the gift of inner sight, the trick is getting in tune with the ability to let go of all “impossibilities” and be one with nature.
When you read about resurrections, reincarnations, or past lives, do you ever wonder if you aren’t living in your first life? If maybe you were someone before and through a series of feelings, aspirations, and events, that you are coming to terms not only with your present life, but also being able to connect to your past?
There is a reason we were related to our certain ancestors. There is a reason we have the hobbies and interests we have, because somewhere along the lines, through centuries of generations, these have been imbedded in our DNA for us to be where we are, right now, doing exactly what we are doing.
To look up at the moon, to look down at the moon, or over to the side; we are looking into the past, at all the people who came before us. Those who shared sights with the moon, thinking about the bigger picture of where we came from and what we are going to do next. We all know more than we think we do. We are all connected to the past in one way or another.
