Mind Energy

Reaching a new level of understanding is pretty much the best sensation in the world. It is like in Aladdin when he fits the two pieces of the scarab beetle together and they begin to glow and come alive and fly off to the Cave of Wonders. You may have spoken these words or had similar thoughts in the past, but they have always been cold pieces of metal. Put them together in just the right way, and they come to life. Your mind lights up and your skin tingles and another tiny bit of the universe makes sense.

I would have to say it is the best high ever. And when you reach this new level together with another person, it is like your spirits are those two little beetle pieces and when your thoughts meet up together and there is an intellectual buzzing all around you.

What is this tangible energy?

Yes, Beware

Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

For some reason I really love this statement!

Time Travel

I applied some lotion to my legs last night that I hadn't used in a loooong time. Maybe even since the end of the time I was dating Chewbacca. Woah, did it bring me back in time. "It smells like feeling unloved."

Scents can be powerful that way.

This is the Truth

(or "The Lesson I Keep Learning Over and Over Again")

Well, if you are looking for the Truth (and I do mean the Truth, not your regular old truth) you will not find it on one side of the argument or the other. You will not even find it tidily in the middle. The Truth is the location where the two sides overlap. Truth is where the two opposites exist simultaneously. It is rarely an either-or, almost always a both at once.

I am a tiny speck, meaningless in this universe, but I am also a miracle, a goddess of ultimate beauty and grace.

Not only must we love as though everything matters, we must realize that we actually have very little effect on the path of the world. We balance detachment and apathy with utmost concern.

Is abortion heinous; is it killing, or would making it illegal be grossly oppressing women? Yes, both.

How can it be? Truth is beyond three-dimensional, I guess.
