Long Live The Instruction Manual


How many people long during their life for instruction manuals. There are blogs, where you can find a list every day. The 17 steps to satisfaction. Three steps for quick success. Do not make me laugh.

And the classical approach, which is that we live in a world where everything is becoming much more complex, faster and harder. The media all around us shoot staccato bursts and the litany of faster, more beautiful, more complex and more difficult relentlessly into our minds.Who wouldn't in the end not believe that there was some truth? Do not make me laugh.

Thus so many humans are looking for a way of new simplicity without guilt feelings that the manual is the panacea to life regarding to reason and truth. Do not make me laugh.

Even in the esoteric recipes are offered, which we can apply and have our share of preparations done for the kingdom to come. Esoteric according instruction manual as a replacement for the church service, beautiful dispatched into everyday life and there leading a dire existence in his box. It has been paid to the account development, and thus it is good. Do not make me laugh.

I think the search for meaning, happiness, love and the spiritual experience is a constant individual way, every moment here and now, and the miraculously journey is for each one of us different, just as no snowflake is like the others. That is what I believe.

Dear snowflakes, so there are no recipes, but as with any cooking you will vary the recipe until the result tastes. And so we have the vegetarians, the pudding-eaters and the carnivores, but they all follow the God calorie. That is what I believe.

Dear snowflakes whether you are fond of pudding or vegetables, if you cook with love, then the risk of injury quite low, and I would like that my snowflakes on their way through the sky follow a unique way saying of themselves, what a wonderful unique way. That is what I bel…….

Ah, the "quick-fix" era.

Cure everything with a pill or a three-step manual.

And miss entirely the point
of learning by searching.

Really liked this!

... your post, as usual, has a good "hado"... but that would be yet another instruction manual, would it not... and laughing is healthy, it breaks away old, worn out patterns...

Dear rain-bow-bridge. Thanky you for inviting me. In my opinion, you own creative powers, that seize spiritual insights.

… thank you for your appreciation, you are too kind…

… would you allow me to take advantage, just one more time, of your kindness and insist upon this matter of the instruction manual… I would have really wanted you to see my point of view, but I can hardly allow my rhetorica on display in here… so, then, let me say just this… if you were in a spiritual emergency (sic!) – as there are so many these days… and a quick search on the internet could be eloquent enough – you would appreciate having an instruction manual at hand… that there is more fun in writing than in reading it, the number of the instruction manuals written throughout history can only testify to this… the good old bible being just the plainest of them all… I made it my business to study them, especially the contemporary endeavours, and this proves to be fascinating… eventually, it is not necessarily the manual itself that matters, but the very fact of its recording, as a token of someone else’s crossing the perilous chasm ahead of you, showing that you could travel the whole way yourself, over the safety and easiness of a bridge…

… and now, pour la bonne bouche, this link to VirtualLight-2 / February 2008 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFbsszg30p8)… I do hope you will enjoy it…

… ps… your garden looks beautiful, the world is beautiful…

Dear rain-bow-bridge, yes you are right, a recipe will help to act efficiently, when you don't have any time left and I wouldn't argue against that.
But recipes on a regurlar basis can generate a dependancy, which would not be nice.
If someone shares his experiences with us, telling us I have succeeded in traversing difficult ground, I do find this inspiring too.
After all, there should be a deeper searching, an wholly approach to understanding oneself, which will give the freedom of doing things witout needing a recipe.
