As a first blog post, im going to repost my most recent epiphany, I think it's worthy to be on my blog.

This is very cool btw. RSDN 2.0. Looks good, feels good and a very sleek design. :)

For me this blog thing is a very cool opportunity to express yourself, your style and your experiences.

Ok, the epiphany is this (and it's very simple that you've heard  it a hundred times or so.)

There is no spoon.

Like, for real bro.

It just hit me one day that most things, (take note : MOST) are just in your head.

I took it as far as saying that whatever happened in your life didn't really happen. That 95% of it happened in your head. (Erika said it's 100% btw. :D)

Anyway, this epiphany has been useful in forgetting certain bad circumstances that you think that may have hindered you in some way in your life.

Accepting it as it is, and then starting fresh and anew.

Starting to look at the world with your "fresh eyes" and carefully travelling through the mist of your subjectivity.

As for the good things, yeah it could be subjective. i.e. (that girl could have been just smiling at you but she didn't really like you), the point of my realization is that you can never ATTACH yourself to things as a means to enlarge your image of self. On the other end, 'suffering' or deriving a sense of identity from it. Because it only means that your basis are illusions(subjective) and the activity itself is pointless.

Pointless being it serves no purpose except to feed itself in a loop.

The illusions are not who you are so to speak.

We were born into subjectivity. We were born with ready made culture and principles and subjects to study.

And it's like a dream that we couldn't wake up from.

We must realize that it's just a dream and just wake up.

Alright that's it.



I figure I squeeze in my second post so it's just one post. :) Only one blog post for a day. Seems much cooler. ;)

Alright. Something new happened today.

I was at the bathroom. I was looking at the water flowing. Then bam! another realization. it's not surprising, not like a eureka of some sort. It's like something "familiar". Something that i've always seen and experienced.

And something that I never acknowledged..until now.

Btw, it's like a meaningful coincidence. The new RSDn, the inauguration, the new feel.

I feel like WE are literally "evolving". Something new is happening to all of us. =)

Now here is the realization. Remembering what Tyler said in a past blog entry of was something like this:

"I am not the doer, this is happening through me."

It's like I saw my hands moving..and it's like im just WATCHING it. Dude, I know some you may be like, "what? that's stupid, I see my hands move all the time."

Realize that it's like IM REALLY WATCHING. Yeah I am moving my hands....YeahI am making it move... My brain is making it move... Yeah unconscious competence...

However, I WAS THERE. 

Watching it.

It's like, I simply understood the phrase. I experienced it.

Then I continued watching. And thought about it. It's as if we are in this world as agents of some kind.

Maybe an agent of the Higher Self or catalysts of some sort. Whatever.

O-K. hehe

I was haunted by this gnawing little anxiety way back. And sometimes intermittently. This anxiety about uncertainty. What the future holds etc

So I go back to Right Now....and be present and accept the present moment.

Then I am at peace.

I just realize that this life is beautiful with all it's imperfections. And we make it that way.

We make it pretty. We make it sleek. Add we choose to live that way.

Cheers to the new RSD. smile
