    Now, now, SM, no changing the rules after the game has begun. A hint would render the discovery anticlimactic. I wouldn’t think of cheating you out of the awe-struck wonder of your personal revelation. Though since you’re ready for the journey, let the synchronicities commence….

      But the rules don’t apply to me! And I wouldn’t think of it as cheating.

      Now that we’ve got that settled… you were about to give me a hint?

          So, you’re just going to let me wander about aimlessly with absolutely no purpose and no ambition other than to achieve the height of 5’4 before I die? Would you have that on your conscience?

  7. We used to have a discussion group that met on Wednesday night after the last yoga class, and one night I asked them, If you could just throw a switch and be enlightened, would you do it? There were about six people there that night, and not one said they would do it. Very thoughtful post. Thanks.

      It’s true, what you say. There’s been many times that i’ve finished something- a drawn out project, a puzzle, etc- that when it was finished, the first thought was ‘Well, now what?’ rather than a sense of accomplishment.

      The journey, they say, not the destination.

    It is interesting that when I first read this bit of simple, but profound wisdom, I thought, “For something so simple and plain to see, this makes sense.” It doesn’t answer the question. It deletes the question and expands the experience of living.

    Another thing I found interesting was the fact that these 11 simple words caused me to contemplate the seemingly hundreds of philosophy books I have read and the spiritually abstract works of ancient authors that many people today claim are the words of a deity, Then I reflected on my own madness and thought, “Definition limits the possibilities while simply understanding the moment and experiencing it as it is creates infinite possibilities.”

    Experiencing life as we are expands the whole of our short experience upon this tiny sphere filled with seemingly erratic entities of energy who seek safety and security by limiting themselves, rather than expanding themselves and allowing their own meaning to express itself upon the canvas of the universe. To defy conformity is interpreted as madness. Let our madness be set free.

    Thank you Sister Madly. Your delightful wisdom is grand in scope yet simply expressed.

        It is true what you say Sister Madly. All things have been said before within the universal consciousness in which we all reside. One can be seen as wise simply by revitalizing and stimulating the idea within the mind of another. We simply share the accounts that echo and resonate throughout time within the energy of who we all are. For to be original would be a lie and a selfish act of universal perjury used for the sole purpose of vainly attempting to increase our status among our fellow mortals.

        I have no idea who may have said what you have stated here in your blog, so I delight in giving you the credit of bringing forth this simple truth and giving it to us as a simple reminder of who we are within the seeming complexity of continuous expression that flows through the void of illusionary separation due to the fact that we unable to see the ever flowing energy that causes humanity as a whole to be one organism upon the sphere of existence on which we temporarily reside.

      • Judging from some of the commentary perhaps subliminally it does have something to with the comment. Given to someone who knows that you have two angels at your service.

        So if God is away, and in the deep dark recesses of your mind there is a soul concern, you are in good hands and wings.

          Best not to venture into the dark recesses of the mind. It is safer that way.

          There is no soul to be concern about- it has been traded for a pretty rock. I got the better end of that deal.

        • The dark doesn’t scare me. I scare the dark. My piece “Vision Quest” in my style may prove illuminating.

          Why oh why do I sense that pretty rock may have been diamond.

          I did have a brief interlude with that Simeon and had to go diatribolical. The creature had the audacity to suggest the piece be called, “Ding-A-Ling”.

          I enlightened him on how such a thing could be misconstrued and that even giving the inference that a lady was such is dangerous to one’s well being.

          In the spirit of the game it will be, “Ring-A-Ling” and the first two lines for your enjoyment.
          Many come, many go, by trail, by air, some at Medieval Fair
          One here, one there, none knew interest is not in those debonair

          Subject to change is they are not etched in a pretty stone.

          There was also the matter this day of defining the role for Beary. Heaven has their own economic downturn and the “New Age Archangel” must multitask. You are aware that Beary is already the Angel of Veracity. His complete complex duty list will give him the combined duties of Metatron, Michael and Lucifer.

          Essentially what that means is Beary will sing you the song he wrote from the notes he took while waxing your tail.

          The tail waxing is old school and not the new age style known as a BACIAL!

          Milady Madly … the game is indeed afoot!
