Simple, Beautiful, Safe, Success



Simple. Sometimes I see how simple thinking is preferred. The people go on their journey of life and have the feeling that simple relationships apparently are the right connections. Love life and the life we love you. That sounds simple and positive and its idea is so beautiful that it should be true. But what is the meaning of to love life. What is this life? And can life love me again?

The simple thinking - there is a cause and an effect - is a bond for our life energy.

If there is only one cause, then I am looking for an object. Diversity surrounds me and influences me in more nuances, than my mind could ever handle.

Cogito ergo sum, I think, therefore I am. This road is a dead end. Better and better: I am, so I dream. Our dreams, our meditative side is able to handle the variety and diversity of an event to calculate where we are, what we want to be. Whenever I stumble upon simple wisdom, I dream of my life according to simple wisdom, in order to get an additional view.

Example - Harm set, harm get. This wisdom speaks of Actio equals Reactio as Isaac Newton puts it. A force creates a counter force. In my dreams I can get harm, but I can also dream of unharmed alternatives, where I perhaps set no harm in order to achieve my goal, because dreams are blind to cause and effect.

Hi Ray - I think the law of cause and effect that operates in out life is simple enough, but that our subconscious mind goes on "causing" things without our knowledge, making things appear a little complicated.

Hi Ray,

You're a philosopher through and through..what about Plato's tabula rasa in Phaedo and Apology?

And science- "to an action there's always a corresponding reaction"..even having no reaction - is a reaction.

What about the notion that everything exists in pairs? Love-indiferrence, cold -hot, big-small, short-tall, etc. So what's now the oposite of light? It is not darkness so they say...it is the absence of light...... now ,I'm confusing even myself.

Really- Ray, your thoughts are so profound and thought provoking that I have to read it twice and peruse them for a while...but the message they put across are astounding and true.

Have you ever watched the movie :"The Butterfly Effect'? . This movie shows how every single action we make affects everything...even the flutter of a butterfly's wing could affect the entire ecology...and the process that would soon occur.

Thanks for those gems of thoughts and lessons that you subtly introduce intro your writings.

More power to you.

Dear robin, the law of cause and effect is only simple if few causes are involved. If the causes appear in great numbers, only a computer may calculate a solution.
When my subconscious does things I don't understand, I meditate. I always find an understandable reason essential for myself. Afterwards my life is a bit simpler though the journey never ends - right?

Dear jena isle, well thank you but your thoughts betray a great thinker yourself.
Thank you for the hint on Plato, I will have to read this, because I don't know it. Thank you.

The existence in pairs is interesting. I think there lurks the old problem whether words could represent the world. I don't think so.

The butterfly effect is quite astonishing indeed but did the butterfly intend to cause bad weather elsewhere?

I think it is a matter of mathematical equations and its starting conditions under the assumption that the involved matter has no consciousness or individual intent.

In the spiritual realm we examine living human beings and their opportunities which will arise
from manipulating consciousness.
