Desires need to breathe too

I feel I’ve gotten into a trap recently. So concerned with finding the answer… the answer to my freedom I had no idea my investigation only was creating a cage for me to fit in. It goes something like this: I have one purpose in mind. What’s that purpose you ask? Okay. Okay. I’ll tell you. Figure out how to become immortal. To unlock the infinite potential within myself. To become free. I’ve been so busy trying to seek this out though, that I’ve been questioning EVERY single encounter I come across. Every thought, every action, every word. In my worst moments, even every breathe. I examine it like a psychopathic coke addict who just wants the feeling of ecstasy to come once again. Willing to do anything to feel liberated from mundane reality. One revelation I’ve come across after watching a movie long enough to exit my cocaine search of existentialism, was that I need to stop doubting IT exists. I need to stop searching so hard. To stop forcing it to come my way. (Who knows if I’m even making any sense or if this will be a stepping stone toward greater heights or maybe just a rock that stands in the way.) It’s good to question things. But sometimes it’s also good to just breathe and know that ascension comes naturally. For clarity purposes, what I mean by ascension is existing at a higher level. Hence the website name. Check. But anyways, something that helps me is visualizing what that ascension would look like. I probably wouldn’t be desperately searching for anything. I would trust my surroundings and allow things to flow freely. I wouldn’t be worried that they wouldn’t flow. What if right now, this very moment, we all just have too comfortable of force blocking us from flowing freely? So how do we remove these blocks? How do we get to the point where we can just exist without this unsettling desperation of needing to exist higher. In order to exist higher, we need to accept the fact that we can naturally. That doesn’t mean stopping our desires. That just means letting them breath the way they know how.

Raise your glasses: “To flowing freely, organically, knowingly, chaotically, incredibly, flowing infinitely”.

To add a little more…I think when we find our true path, we just slowly begin to out grow them. We find that they are empty in the end.

@ryezinguhbove, Beautiful post. “How do we get to the point where we can just exist without this unsettling desperation of needing to exist higher?”

I believe this starts with gratitude for what already exists.

@tangledupinplaid21,
Very true! It comes when there is a complete acceptance of everything around you. Knowing you don’t need to progress but you can do so if you please. To create more beauty from the beauty(imperfections included too!) already created. Ultimately loving unconditionally. Although stated boldly, I need to figure out how to directly apply all of this in my everyday life. We have the magic words now all we have to do is figure out where/when/how to speak them!

@vovinawol,
I’m not sure what you mean by empty. Possibly perceiving the quality of a path before taking it? Then finding out the path has more quality then expected, hence making the perceived path empty in comparison?

I was mainly speaking of desires and things of subsatance that we grow out as they no longer serve us on the path to oneness. They begin to take us down rather that lift us up. However, what you said in your reply to me is also true in many if not all cases.

@vovinawol,
I want to connect on a similar plane of thought but I feel like my understanding of what you’re saying is too ambiguous still. Could you supply an example or elaborate a little more? Please please please. Your input is appreciated!!

You really love philosophizing, don’t you! Well, sometimes, you know, all these questions you ask and all these thoughts you have require getting out of your fucking house and socialize, to have a better understanding of what you’re saying.

I know, this is really scary, to socialize. You don’t have to! Just don’t talk when you never did.

1. Curiosity
2. Questions
3. Answers
4. Understandings
5. Acceptance

Think of this as a type of spiritual hierarchy of needs, listed in descending order, of course.

@beyond, your demeaning posts do not resonate with me. I’m highly social. So to judge one post I create and think you have me figured out is absurd. Not to mention the manner in which you presented your comment is destructive not constructive. What is your purpose in being so mean?

@ryezinguhbove, Wow, now that is mean. I can see how more social I am than you.

@ryezinguhbove, Anyway, you asked a legitimate question, so I can’t not do this to myself not responding honestly.

I am being mean, because I don’t like people liking me. They lie too much. :) I am rude, because I hate fucking stupidity.

Yes, I do. Oh, man, how much…

@optimystic, Those 5 things are pretty much it. But with a closed mind we only use the first 2 of them and never go beyond that. So we go on giving ourselves false misconceptions.

@optimystic, I really really really like that. Especially because I’ve identified so much with Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. It’s awesome to think of the spiritual side of that. That’s also an awesome measurement of knowing the progress you are making within your own thoughts. Thank you for providing clarity!

@ryezinguhbove, Well I’m glad that you seem to like it, but please don’t put too much stock into it. Spiritual spontaneity inspired the list (and subsequent order); it is no doubt a reflection of my own, unique path, and so it may OR MAY NOT reflect your own. If you can identify with it, then great.
