Thinking and Destiny; the catapult in my quest for answers.
Which came first?
On one side you have the body, the physical proof that we are who we are. Could you imagine yourself without it? Rather difficult to say the least. It’s what we’ve so thoroughly studied in the fields of biology and medicine. It’s the carrier of all the memories you’ve ever had, the pain you’ve ever endured, and all the joy you’ve ever felt. We’ve seen it grow right before our eyes, develop and change it’s form as time passes us by. There are those who don’t seem to age, however, and we make sure to express that opinion.
Then you have the mind. Has the consciousness that is you changed to same degree? Of course we amend our thoughts and beliefs over time, but anything drastic is unheard of. You’ve been you since you can remember.
I’m not here to say the mind is anymore you than the body it’s encapsulating. Just that there is a separation. With that same separation I ask, what is a mind without a body and vice-versa? We can’t remember the split second our body came into existence so a simultaneous creation seems unlikely. I personally don’t have any clear, vivid thoughts that predate my 4th or 5th birthday, and that’s pushing it.
Is it fair to say there wasn’t a mind quite yet? Or is it simply just a matter of being able to remember or not? Eh, I feel as if short cutting myself takes the fun out of things.
Time and time again, I notice how small we really are in the grand scheme of the universe. ‘Time and time again,’ of course, being a phrase to represent the time lapse between each separate but similar realization.
Do we know if any other creature has the ability to dream a dream, dream a reality, decide it’s what they want to experience, then subsequently set out on a path harboring its manifestation?
It’s utterly insane that our mind holds this power. I’ve personally seen it multiple times, however, the larger the dream, the longer the wait and the longer the desire needs to be focused on.
“I could really use a good laugh right about now.” That fruition will take one anywhere from 1 hour to 1 week.
“I can’t wait to own my own successful business.” Anywhere from months to years.
Regardless of which example chosen, the idea was planted in the mind and grown into a visual experience for our eyes to record for future references.
This portrays us as being extremely influential beings from our humanistic perspective. But at the same time, has not one human being expanded their thought into the realms of outer space (with all due respect to the great advances made in spaces voyages)? Are there really no other beings out there that we can communicate with? Are those manifestations due for a later date? With some goals being more achievable than others, should one only aim for short term accomplishments?
I hope not, but I do wonder…
