Freedom Within....as far as the eyes can see.....
How free the eagle who at height
Of heaven flings himself in flight,
But his high flights has first to start
Not in the sky, but in his heart.
Likewise with me, how shall I find
Freedom if not within my mind,
And learn, as thought by thought I try,
That I may fall, yet I can fly,
and even sometimes rise up free
Beyond the highest heights of me.
By The Sea
When I look at the sea,
there well Sometimes into my mind
Deep thoughts too dear to tell
In words too hard to find.
I stand on the shore and stare,
But the deeps that are the sea
Speak not of deeps out there,
But of the deeps in me.
Then the sea may break on my ear
And tumble and toss in my eyes,
But the deeps I see and hear
Did not on this shore rise.
- James Dillet Freeman, 1912 - 2003
We all know about the brain, where it is located and a little bit about it's function. We know that the brain is divided into two sections, the left and right hemispheres. The right is like a radio receiver. It receives signals, the THOUGHTS that CREATE ideas and give direction from our MINDS. And the left is like the analytical and problem solving part. If you've been tuning in you should have a grip.
The eyes are one of our most precious body organs. Our peepers allow us to SEE in front and around us. Very limited vision indeed when you think about it. But our brains 'instruct' our eyes to see. The brain interprets the information the eyes disclose through the function of the left hemisphere. The brain can only interpret what the eyes can see. In other words what we Westerners call "real". If our eyes can't see it in front of, and around us, then our brain tells us "it 'ain't there". If our eyes can see an object in front of it, then it is considered objective. If our eyes cannot "see" what you can see with your eyes closed then that is considered to be "subjective", you are not thinking or seeing straight, which is non-linear hocus pokus, mumbo jumbo, and you are considered to be of concern to the 'black and white' mental authority. In other words considered to be NUTS. Bit like Moi........ OhK....
But then we have our Eastern philosophy, stuff given to us by the Sages over the last few centuries, the 'mumbo jumbo' that we can only see from the inside. But how can we "SEE" when our eyes only "SEE" externally. Hmmmm.......
Our Eastern teachers have been telling us about the MIND, CONSCIOUSNESS and the SOUL for a loooong, loooong time. Oh dear. Weeeell, my ME, for one, is listening........
They say things can't be real if we can't see them with our little peepers. And if you ask our medical experts, our doctors, who have studied 'bodies and what's in them' stuff for nearly 10 years at College before playing with them in the real world, the doctors will not be able to tell you where the M, C and S are located, unless they are Dalai Lama Doctors. Yep. So.....
And the ME of which I speak is a part of the M, C and S that I mentioned, my inner self, the ME that make ME BE, not the one that goes missing after a few years. The ME that gives me the DREAMS my subjective, non-linear ME can SEE. The ME that gave me the VISION for my book, the ME that gave me the VISION for Blog thingie, the ME that gave me the VISION for the script I am writing, the ME that gave me the real VISION to SEE with my eyes wide shut.
If you ask for someone out there to help you, and you seriously want to find your ME, your eternal ME, then the doors of your real life will open. When you find your ME, you will complete your life the way that you were supposed to from day one, not just to survive the few years our bodies give us. When you find your real ME, you will be able to fulfill, and you will understand..........
Your MIND will provide the THOUGHTS you need to SEE, your CONSCIOUSNESS will guide you along the 'right path' and your SOUL will take you back to where it all began, a place with no ending........ , a place where your MIND is ONE with UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS, the provider of the THOUGHTS and THE place where your SOUL is ONE with ETERNITY.
Just gotta have that little bit of FAITH in your ME. Then you will truly SEE, both inside and out, eyes wide open, eyes wide shut........
