Right Here Right Now.

Posted by Phillip Gordon on Saturday, January 23, 2010
The search for what we cannot see, never can comprehend, leads us down the path of folly and forever seeking.  To address the aspects of life that are readable, recognisable, what we can identify as here, that is the path I wish to pursue.  I do not know if I have had lives before, or will have them again.  I may postulate this idea; use it as a principle, dream of what was and what will be next time around.  Yet this is the life I am in.  This is the life I have to live and work with.  It is this life and all that I am surrounded by that piques my interest.  If it is in this life it will be in the next.   What is real now will always be real.

Philosophy attempts to look at what is and make sense of it.  Metaphysics, while an interesting journey, attempts to unravel the Mystery, I prefer to leave it mysterious.  There is so much right here to comprehend and be involve in, there is so much adventure and delight right here in this life.  This is the one we are all living.  Even tomorrow is a mystery.  A philosophy grounded, will develop a set of principles based on what can be touched and smelt, what can be felt and known.  Its job is to create a working relationship that assists us to live more full and present lives with a sense of conscious participation, to unfold and evolve ourselves through this life.

Creating is something no organic life form escapes.  A tree creates itself and makes the pattern of its existence as it seeks out the sun with its outstretched limbs, and digs deep into the unseen earth to find the hidden minerals and water to bring sustenance.  If that is so for a tree, it must be so for us.  To simply chase the light will not provide us the food we need from the dark depths of our existence.  Just as burying our heads in the deep will not give us the sunlight required to reach our heights.  Within all life rests a key for the human, conscious mind to read and comprehend our own existence.  It is in our ability to read our lives as they are that frees us.  To be in the moment and discover the nuances, the dreams, the conditions that apply in this very moment.  If it is here, then it has the potential to be there.  If you are dreaming of something that is not inside you, you will be lost forever.  If you are truly in touch with yourself, your dreams will come to fruition as you pay attention and follow each day, what is there.

What are you as a human being, for you cannot escape this condition.  And what is your unique expression of humanness.
