joycesu “There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” #huxley

I've been thinking a lot about the narratives we create for ourselves and the narratives we create for others (I am___, he is ___), and how it ultimately robs us of experiencing. Because we are living in some story, we aren't really present. And why the narrative? Well that's an interesting question, and I think it has a lot to do with a human need for comfort and explanation- to label and quantify. We make our rawness so much more bearable by coloring it.
Anyhow, feel free to discuss or hit me up on iMessage if you want- I could go on forever... #365grateful #365gratefuljoycesu #sober

  •   davewhitbycom Hi

    I enjoyed your post regarding the colouring of the life to give it meaning.

    I have thought about this for many years but from a different point of view. What interests me in the perception of the self coloured elements of life. How we precieve our realities on a individual level. The input from our senses are coloured twisted by personal biases and chemical balances. They as individual as a finger print.

    With this in mind I love the concept that reality is just an concoction of our brains trying to make sense of the inputs in the world. The medical world tells us that is takes a couple of nano seconds for the brain to make sense of the inputs. So for a short time it takes for the bio electric signals to travel through our bodies and get made sense of in our brains. During this time reality does not exist for that individual as it is just impulses travelling through a body. These messages are as I mentioned are turned into precieved realities. Which are created by a a miss mash of signals. Which are altered by adrenaline and various different chemicals and external forces.
    In essence reality does not exist it is just and agreed average of the theses factors which we all live by.

    But to find meaning in life is as good a cause than any to make a positive difference, however be aware that what we believe to be real is no more than a fabrication of our brains and does not exist. 7h

  •   osandisekou As the soul takes a form in the physical world, a form borrowed from this world, so the thought takes a form which is borrowed from the world of mind. A clear mind, therefore, can give a distinct body, a distinct form to the thought; a mind which is confused produces indistinct thoughts. One can see the truth of this in dreams: the dreams of the clear-minded are clear and distinct, the dreams of those whose mind is unclear are confusing. -Hazrat Inayat Khan 6h

joycesu “Exercise your human mind as fully as possible knowing that it is only an exercise. Build beautiful artifacts, solve problems, explore the secrets of the physical universe, savor the input from all the senses, filled with joy and sorrow and laughter, empathy, compassion, and tote the emotional memory in your travel bag. I remember where I came from, and how I became human, why I hung around, and now my final departure's scheduled. This way out, escaping velocity. Not just eternity, but Infinity.” #wakinglife #365grateful #365gratefuljoycesu #skull 1d
