I was commenting on a post on facebook when I said something utterly profound. It took me a second to realize that I had just typed this, but here it is:
I believe that we are all a fragment of a god, who gave himself to create this amazing world; to create an endless mystery for us (himself) to unravel. We are no more aware that we are god than god is aware that he is in existence. I seek mystery, and what bigger mystery than what the soul is and where it goes after we die?
Perhaps its just because I am tired, but I think this is a wonderful way to say this. What are your thoughts on this comment?
What are some of YOUR profound realizations/thoughts that came to you from nowhere? Please, do tell. I love great questions and riddles. If you can make me ponder, I’ll be grateful :D
Whoosh, your epiphany made me see fireworks. Not only do I love it but I can perceive it.
People like to follow the main stream whether it’s negative or not. Imagine a stream that tries to get through solid land. Winds blow but the land stays and the stream turns into a sea. The fish don’t like the surface. If they are over it, they try to reach for depth. They’re trapped where they can only survive.
Fish theory. By myself and imaginary fish.
I don’t believe in mysteries.
Does anyone ever say something that is truly original ? Or, are all our thoughts and pronouncements merely a re-hash of what we have seen, heard, read ? Alex Eastman’s ‘we are God’ theory seems similar to Scientology’s Thetans idea. (no insult intended or suggestion of plagiarism I’m merely making the point over the original idea proposal I’ve just made, which in turn is far from original). So are profound statements new ways of viewing old ideas ?
They are, but reworking a previous idea can lead to something outstanding. Think of the original lightbulb: many ideas were made, but only one actually worked. All were similar, all had basic similarities, but only one, a combination of previous ideas, actually did the job.
We can’t make something completely original, but we can definitely make something work.
