We are now in an age of enlightenment. I will not say that it is new, just because I haven’t experienced this type of age before. This has happened many times, but not in this magnitude.
In these times you may experience a natural change of consciousness: you may feel more like a free being. Many may frown upon this and think: “Aren’t I free now?” Freedom is only a matter of perspective, as everything is. The only way to find out if you are free is to look at the definition of freedom. Your find on the definition may vary, but from my perspective it is this: ‘The opportunity to what ever you want without any interference from any other living form, material objects and concepts of a binding nature’. If someone grants you the right to freedom, is it really freedom? In my eyes it is not. Freedom must be taken, in one way or another.
Many may now start to think of their children, jobs, houses and what ever else may bind you to your present existence. You may think what you want, you are free to do it, but try to find the basic core of why you do what you do. Ask questions to your choices. Many say that you should never second guess yourself, in my eyes those are the ones who fear of regretting what they may or may not do.
Enough of that for now. Let us talk about philosophy that brings forgotten information back to remembrance.
Everything that has ever happened or will is actually stored in your mind. Time in a chronological order is only to see how some situations allowed each other to happen. What we remember about the past can instantly come to the present, just by remembering the feeling that you had at that moment. As also the future, you can foresee what you may feel in any situation in the future and bring that to the present, but when you actually get to experience it on the future, that has become the present, you have already felt the feeling of the experience, and it most likely will not feel like you had foreseen, because you have felt it.
You can view this as a metaphor: ‘If you know that dinner is ready in a half of hour, but you are hungry now, would you take some pieces of candy/fruit/bread now or enjoy the full feeling of eating on an empty stomach in a half hour?’.
You mind is actually only a storage space much like the hard disc of you computer. The left part of the brain is your physical memory of what you have accomplished so far in you life. Without the left part of the brain you will not remember how to walk, swallow, breath and so on… In other words it is all your past of this physical life. The Right part of the brain is your future. It holds your imagination that determine how you may vibrate in a situation, it has no physical part of the present or the future, unless you allow it to play a part. In the middle of you two halfs of the brain you have the mid-brain, also called ‘pineal gland’. This holds your present. It is smaller then the two other parts, if you think about it, all you have read now is already in the past, and the next word is the future. The present is only a split second long, and does determine the physical future of what will happen.
What happens when you mix the left and right brain? The principal can be explained as this: ‘When you have put a store-bought pizza in the oven, you start to remember the great taste and feeling from the last time you had the same brand of pizza. You sit and wait in expectations based on the past for as long as the pizza is in the oven, suddenly you start to smell the wonderful odour which raises your expectations even higher. When the pizza is done, it doesn’t taste the same as you expected but it is only good enough.’
This was just an example on how the principal may be explained. The basic movement of the thought-pattern can be explained like this: You remember the very first pizza you had that tasted “heavenly” and you wish to experience that again by doing what you can to remember that taste, even imagine that this time it will taste like this or that, that or this. What often happens is that reality can not hold your expectations up, so you feel let down to accept the real life.
Many people will not get the pizza-metaphor used above, so I will give you another example on that principal: ‘You see a movie that you really liked a lot, so much that you watch it again and again, after a while you hear that a sequel is in the making and comes out in a few months. You walk around thinking that this is going to be great, I am really looking forward to this film, you say to yourself and others. Finally the movie is released on the market. You watch it and it really wasn’t as good as your expectations. You feel disappointed, let down.’
Many millions of people experience this principal of “past-future-expectations” every day but they all forget the present. To quote Kung-Fu Panda’s character, Oogway: “The past is history, the future is a mystery, to day is a gift, which is why it is called present.”
So if someone or some being (more on this later) gave you a gift of the second right now, but you spoiled it by experiencing the past and future now, how do you think that being would feel?
This factor of “time-distortion” is something that is sort of programmed by the pattern of your society. As a child you see someone you admire doing just this, and you will most often mimic the time-distortion of the present. All to be someone you want to be, instead of being yourself. I know this is true, because I have lived like it, when I walked from that being of distortion I saw that many others actually experience the same, as if it is nature. But it actually is a pre-designed perception of how “higher dark-forces” like you to be or think.
Many may think that this isn’t real the talk about “higher dark-forces”, but that is only because you are experiencing it right now. It is hard to see your problems as you experience it, only in retrospect you can see what you really have been taking part of.
You have heard of the brown-eye? It is often used as a metaphor for the anus. Why is it called an eye if you can not see through it? You can not see ahead from the back, but you can see where you have been so that you can see what you walked away from. That is my view on the concept of the “Brown-Eye” – The Eye of the Ass. Hehe
