Sometimes we wonder what it's all about...Sometimes we question our place in the Cosmos....This is natural because the human mind is programmed to take periodic reality checks. If we do something repetitively for long periods it becomes rote. The human mind loves innovation and abhors rote, so when the mind perceives rote it snaps into reality-checking mode. Jobs, relationships, interests, everything is subject to scrutiny and change. The only constant is the Cosmos itself...the eternal Cosmos, The One, The Source, The Mother of everything that ever was or ever will be. The human mind is imbued with a natural affinity towards the stars...Since time immemorial humans have known that the actions of mortal man on Earth is but a tiny fraction of all there is, so he has always gazed furtively at the stars for guidance...The notions of life, death, time and space seem to be very hard for the human mind to grasp...Our 75 year life span is a mere blip in Cosmic time, an infinitessimal interval..... civilization itself is a mere tick in the tick-tock of Cosmic time....Yet we dwell on the details of this tiny time frame and act as if it will last forever. It won't, but the Cosmos will last forever, and we are integral parts of the Cosmos, therefore, we, ourselves will last forever.
Many ask whether we come back after our 75 year soujourn in another form. Well, you just have to glance around to see that every second billions of life forms are coming into existence as we speak. The Cosmos brings forth life. Nature recycles. What real significance does the term "death" have? Sure, things die, and things are born, they come and they go, even stars and planets. But the same forces that produced the stars and planets of today will still be at work when stars super-nova and cast off their elements into space...New stars are always formed, new planets, new life. So death would only be a transition between periods, whether it's the death of a star or a carbon-based living organism. It would appear that our 75 year life span is some sort of opportunity to learn something, to evolve and develop, to somehow come to some kind of understanding of the workings of the Cosmos and establish some sort of rapport with the Cosmos, to connect, mind and soul, to the forces which govern the essence of the Cosmos.
Perhaps through meditation and introspection we can energize the spark which connects us to Eternity and awaken from our mundane slumber...Awaken from the trance which has been surrepticiously imposed on us by banal society. As people fall away from the grip of the False Gods of money, war, commercialism, fashion, trends, consumerism, etc, they serve as beacons for others, and the snowball effect sets in....Progressive, awakened peoples are making the connection with the Cosmos and connecting with eachother..As the movement grows each day it becomes more intense and energized...Cosmic Consciousness takes shape...Those mired in the abyss of banality become more and more alienated and cut off from the Mainstream and The Awakened Ones fortify their sense of purpose....Life is good!!!!!
