Love is infectious,  amour est contagieux,  el amor es contagioso,  Любовь инфекционные,  אהבה היא זיהומיות,  liebe ist ansteckend,  爱是有传染性الحب هو المعدية...

Annata  is  that  which is   beyond   name  and  form,   or conceptualism , beyond   thinking, unfatomable and unutterable... 

Where matter exists change is constant.  There  is only lasting resolution  in   the   unchainable,  annitcha .  The eternal irresolvable   insoluble   incongruous  cosmic amalgamation
(where there is  no  time  for  change)   is  the  phenomenal  predicament    of   perpetual    change.
A fundamental  principle  of   Huna   is  Aloha  which  partially means to hear what is not said, to see what  cannot  be  seen  and  to    *know  the unknowable.

*Once awareness is wise to the conscious mind and the subconscious has been positively reprogrammed, attention and concentration bring us into subsuperconscious states. We begin to breathe regularly and diaphragmatically (balanced and even.)  We become aware of only one thing at a time in the physical world, allowing one thing to attract our attention, rather than continuing to ramify. This practice begins to weave awareness into subsuperconscious, perceptive states.

As Arjuna said to Krishna: "The mind is restless, turbulent, powerful and obstinate. I deem it as difficult to control as the wind."    The Bhagavad Gita

*“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience."

― José Micard Teixeira

"I have never killed anyone,                                 
but I have read some obituary                                           notices with great  satisfaction."
 Clarence Darrow

Upon death, I suppose the quest for re-entry into a more desirable lifetime ultimately is  beyond our control . We may however quite possibly exert some influence in this destination based upon our behavior in this present lifetime.                    

   Three Kinds Of Karma

Karma is threefold: sanchita, prarabdha and kriyamana. Sanchita karma means "accumulated actions." It is the sum of all karmas of this life and our past lives. Prarabdha karma means "actions begun; set in motion." It is that portion of sanchita karma that is bearing fruit and shaping the events and conditions of the current life, including the nature of our bodies, personal tendencies and associations. Kriyamana karma means "actions being made." It is the karma we create and add to sanchita in this life by our thoughts, words and actions, or in the inner worlds between lives. While some kriyamana karmas bear fruit in the current life, others are stored for future births. Each of these three types can be divided into two categories: arabdha ("begun, undertaken;" karma that is "sprouting"), and anarabdha ("not commenced; dormant"), or "seed karma." 

Brilliantly incapable of average comprehension is the idiot savant. The complex  mind  has  many  layers,  and  it  requires   studious introspection and analysis to recognize when these disparate units and  partial  selves  are   functioning  correctly  or  are demanding  specialized attention. Even a complete simpleton possesses  layer upon layer of compartmentalized sectors, vying for energies in the psycho dynamic scheme of things.

The  Hindu  concept  of Gunas  are  crucial  to this understanding. 

I believe the soul never dies (purusha) it is persistent, all pervading and complete in and of itself; aksara, "imperishable, indestructible, fixed, immutable"  The prakriti is the physical aspect of matter, and that is what differentiates  souls  from  mere  bodily  containers  of spirit. We are all a separated and simultaneously a  singular piece  of the great soul,   the  atman. Our individual   karmas  are   the  reason  we   are  here.    It  is   the  sole   catalyst   that   separates   and  differentiates   us  one from another.  It is also  Maya.    It  is  only  entirely  known to the one  eternal absolute soul,  God  Brahman. 

John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Maya is the false perception and illusion that matter is not changeless and is not subject to corruption, decay and transmogrification. Christ having such knowledge said: 

     *Reality is  an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
                         Albert Einstein

                Thank  God  for  the  mute button.

"The worst of all deceptions is self-deception."

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way  through our political and  cultural  life,  nurtured  by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as  your knowledge.”
Isaac Asimov

The   mind   can  be   likened   to   a trap   for   consciousness, a labyrinth, or a prison.  It is not that you  are in prison, you are the prison. The prison is an  illusion.  If  you  are  identified with an illusory self,   then   you  are asleep.  Once  you  are  aware of the prison,  and  you  fight  to  get out of the   illusion  then you are treating the illusion as  if  it  is  real  then  you  remain  asleep.  The   dream   becomes   a   nightmare.  You’ll  be  chasing  and running from  shadows  forever.  Samadhi   is   the  awakening  from   the dream of the separate self or the  ego  construct.   Samadhi   is  the  awakening  from    the   prison   called   me.   You  can  never  actually  be   free   because    wherever   you   go   your    prison     is    there.   Awakening   is   not  about  eliminating    the  mind  or  the  matrix. On   the  contrary   when you are not identified with it then you can experience the play of life more fully, enjoying  the show  as it  is  without   cravings  or  fear.  The divine game of lila, the game of  playing  in  duality.  

                         Dancing With Siva

 Human consciousness  is a  continuum,  on  one  extreme,   humans    identify  with material self, on the other extreme is samadhi, the  cessation itself. Every step we take  on  the continuum toward samadhi, brings less suffering.  Less suffering does not mean life is free from pain. Samadhi is beyond the duality of pain and  pleasure.  It  means  there  is  less   mind  and   less  self    creating resistance to whatever is to unfold. Non resistance is  what  creates  suffering.

“Loneliness is such an omnipotent and painful threat to many persons that they have little conception of the positive values of solitude, and even at times are very frightened at the prospect of being alone. Many people suffer from “the fear of finding oneself alone,” remarks André Gide, “and so they don’t find themselves at all.” 

   Rollo MayMan's Search for Himself

You know how sometimes at night you see in windows the glowing blue hue of people watching televisions? If you could see love there would be a similar brilliance glowing in homes where love prevails; an incandescence of full life force.

Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future,  from 

"Aloha" is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence.
Somewhere your own next incarnation exists and is waiting to be happily dissolved by your actions and efforts in this timeline.

Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.

 *Bhagavad-gītā 2.12  

*Gita of Nirmāṇakāya/Bodhisattva/

*Afterlife, lyrics ©TRi   song-psalm

Hermes Trismegistos is made to say: “To speak of God is impossible. For corporeal cannot express the incorporeal . . . That which has not any body nor appearance, nor form, nor matter, cannot be apprehended by sense. I understand, Tatios, I understand, that which it is impossible to define—that is God”. 

A grandfather recites a plight to his grandson:
Grandfather: I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one. Grandson:   Which wolf will win the fight in your heart, Grandfather?
Grandfather: The one that I feed.

Oh I consider much of dreams to be more a mammalian brain function as opposed to some mystical oracle of auguries. It's a crap shoot so to speak.   However   if  a genuinely conscientious  person continues  denying a problem, it will  surface in  dreams.  In that (pushing into consciousness) the analog becomes the  digital; the brain becomes the mind, the repressed becomes known, and a dynamism of truth (that which is repressed) demands that it show  itself.      

The human brain is a kludge of different operating systems: the ancient reptilian brain (motor functions, fight-or-flight instincts), the limbic or mammalian brain (emotions) and the more recently evolved neocortex (rationality). Religion irritates the rational brain because it trades in magical thinking and no proof, but it nourishes the emotional brain because it calms fears, answers to yearnings and strengthens feelings of loyalty.    Stephen T. Asma©  NYT
 I surmise that we,  throughout the day, perceive far more than we can comprehend and logically comfortably assimilate,  so the brain  requires some time to pull together the unfathomable quagmire of a loosely bound myriad  of images  and ideas.  Thus, this is why sleep and dreaming  is essential.  This phantasmagoria  seemingly  becomes  a
kaleidoscopic  mush  which  nevertheless  must be somehow managed, and somehow miraculously transcribed by a finite mind.  Our computer like mind requires time to acquire ample disk space for the brain.  Our brain  (not mind) is capable of retaining great detail in each day of observations, so much so that much, if not most, must be filtered (collated) in order  to maintain an equilibrium.  Dreaming  is partially a purely mechanical dynamism and  function of thought and rationalized (mind)  symbiosis. 

An    abstruse    amorphous   algorithmic ad hominem of a priori antinomies, and smarmy snark. (an aside)

Do not confuse verbal dexterity for moral superiority.

A person can be highly intelligent, but if they forgo being delicate with people, they’ve upended their intellect.

     On  Freud:

Freud's  compartmentalizing  of   the psyche actually  became a roadmap to honesty and self-understanding. The  psychodynamics   of   repression, oppression,  denial, and other  clever machinations of the mind applied  to avoid some pressing matter is the stuff of neurosis, some psychosis and the co-morbidity of complexes. The Oedipal state applies to boys and girls. Jung's archetypes and shadows (animus/anima) are examples of conceptual   awareness  that  can   bury  a  healthy  mind  in confabulations  that  apply  reaction  formations  and  defense mechanisms. These shields and rogue thoughts are the mainstay characteristics of personality disorders. Sigmund Freud is certainly  a genius. I suppose his relevance is dependent upon one's values and receptivity for logic.  Any self examining analyst endeavors after that which is inscrutable, mysterious and layered in  guile and for  neutralizing inanition.  "The highest measure of his meaning may derive from the echoes of his voice in artistic work." That statement is profound and astute. Freudian psychoanalysis is a foundation   for  many "artistic  works" that  require  a  clear understanding of the minds' convoluted  schemes  that squirm between instinct and intellect.

*Wake up and face the animal in you
the frightened lizard that wants to win you,

that wants the madness to continue
screwed into every sinew"... 

*Todd Rundgren, Proactivity

"Super-ego," a cold, censorious spoilsport whose favorite phrase is "Thou shalt not."  For some people, whose spontaneous awareness is strangled in a network of inhibitions, prohibitions, guilts, fears, repressions and other unlovely products of a puritanical conscience, the weakening of the super-ego generates a certain Dionysian ecstasy, a fuller, richer sense of being, a liberation.

Jung writes:

Neurosis is an inner cleavage — the state of being at war with oneself. Everything that accentuates this cleavage makes the patient worse, and everything that mitigates it tends to heal him. What drives people to war with themselves is the suspicion or the knowledge that they consist of two persons in opposition to one another. The conflict may be between the sensual and the spiritual man, or between the ego and the shadow. It is what Faust means when he says: “Two souls, alas, dwell in my breast apart.” A neurosis is a splitting of personality.

His personal sense of identification is not bound up in gender, race, body, status, income, ideology… or ego construct...  

brahmachari is a celibate student, often under simple vows. Some titles have feminine equivalents, such as sadhvi, yogini and brahmacharini. The Vedas explain, "The brahmachari moves, strengthening both the worlds. In him the devas meet in concord; he upholds earth and heaven."

Hell is a state in which your whole life is concentrated on your perceived agony.

Unmitigated honesty is the best writing tool by which to assure utmost authenticity.

On a raft of obscure and recondite verbiage which  stubs the rigidity of the ordinary toe, offends the things they hold most dear, and deploring  the banal and mundane  common usage which is a literary artisan's foe.

A lunatic is entitled to his temper, but artistic temperament is often a self declared  license for misbehavior among   the sneering cynical maladroit of the  hoi polloi  and its masses of averageness...

*"You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack of all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check the free play of your powers. That's the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilized world.”  
Octave Mirbeau*

I  posit that  suspected victimization is often used to limit one's abilities (defense mechanism)  by scapegoating and blame-saying to remain in a fixed state. A mediocre homeo stasis of  intransigence based on the extreme need for a continual comfort. 

*The crimes of others you deplore, but of yourself you don’t keep score. *Todd Rundgren

The attempted use of  reasoning  to  define and conceptualize  something  beyond  the comprehension of all minds combined is an exercise  in  futility.  The  dogmas   and doctrines   and  creeds  come  into  play, creeping little labels of ownership and authorization  that turn the one against the other.  Each warring and quibbling and demanding some  entitlement  of  exclusivity,  some  divine  sense  of  holy entitlement,  propriety  and  territoriality.    


 Astronomy 101: 
 I succumbed into  a stupor of inconsolable incredulity upon discovery  of  black  holes. I was  never  a   really  stable person in the first place, but that was    sufficient   to send me   off   into       an   abyss    of    imagination   similar   to  that   of   a   autistic   child  dumbstruck  from  beholding  and relishing   the   pure  intricacy  of   things.  My  professor  waved  his  hand  in front of my face as one would do to ascertain  if   someone  had  vision.   I was out to lunch before the whole class.

Some people are so invested in their hate and fear that peace is the most threatening thing they can imagine. They have become accustomed to conflict as stimulus, as a homeostasis.

anhedonia |ˌanhēˈdōnēə, -hi-|
noun, Psychiatry
inability to feel pleasure.
anhedonic |-ˈdänik| adjective
ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from French anhédonie, from Greek an- ‘without’ + hēdonē ‘pleasure.’

For many  hippies there was the humane conclusion that blindly seeking financial security at the cost of the soul, (personal happiness and phony ethics)  was a dead end unfulfilling lifestyle. 
The quest  through drugs was mostly to find alternatives to alcohol, tobacco and other  socially acceptable but  destructive  substances.  I  rarely use  metaphors,  but  one man's  meat is  another  man's  poison.  Alcohol is  difficult to manage for neophytes.   Generally 
if you weren't  dedicated to working, paying taxes and being a "contributing member of society" you risk being a cast out.  The American constitution provides a person's individual right to pursue happiness, it doesn't explicitly define the course one undertakes to achieve said happiness. Originally (for hippies) it was all about love and peace, destructive drugs then entered the scene. Just prior to  this time,  I believe it was considered effeminate or sissified for a man to talk about love (outside the church). The hippies were unafraid and unashamed of love.

Poets make lousy friends because  eventually they’ll  skewer you with their poison pen; their  insulting  writ of relentless invective and opprobrious apoplectic venom. The naked foist of un-allayed aggression as art-form whereby  the vitriol of familiarity slices like a knife. The very nature of chumminess turns adversarial.   A quirk, an idiosyncrasy, a malevolent adherence so committed to
unreduced truth  as to be a fist to the face, a shocking starkness of  incivility justified by a   requisite  expedience  hastened  by  the anxious need to blow  you off  forthwith.  A lunatic is entitled to his  artistic 
temperament,  an intellecetual his space.

I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I'm as constant as a star, constantly in the darkness
get back to me when you can explain black holes without swallowing hard
God's sewer system
nothing entirely disappears, it merely changes shape
we never really die 

“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change -” Heraclitus 

 I regard all life as phenomena that is beyond exact description or definition.  Therefore you have mystics philosophers, oracles and religions.  Most people are simpletons with enough curiosity to know that life is devoid of any entire  elucidation, and religion makes things tidy, knowable and then forgettable.  The Bible probably has as much bullshit as beauty, and that sounds like life in general. Nihilism isn't defeat as much as it is reconciliation with the absence of continuity.

Most people have little interest in world history,  no wonder why considering  it is deeply  humbling, as well as deeply distressing ©kwr

 ..."Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”    
Carl Sagan

*This is an ancient stratagem and many have used it: The way of the monk, the way of the hermit or the recluse is the way of one who tries to obtain victory by avoiding the battle. He makes a fortified position in a remote place and hopes that the enemy will not find him. There were days when men and women in thousands flocked to the desert, lived in caves, remote hermitages, perched like storks on the tops of tall columns. Does such a retreat ensure victory? Not necessarily. It simplifies the struggle but the hermit, too, has his problems. There are devils in the desert, as St. Anthony discovered. Besides, as a permanent way of life, it is sterile. A year's retreat into the desert may be profitable but a lifetime in the wilderness -- that is another matter. A man owes something to the society that produced him even though he may dislike that society and reject its values.     
                        The Master Game

You are the descendant of millions of years of yearning. Defining the inexplicable is impossible.  Language does breakdown when broaching the predicament of phenomena,   something  for   which   language  is  not    and   was   not    ever intended.  Ensnared by the necessity for empirical results;  reliable  duplication, crucibles of criterion that result in  replication,  necessitated  by  a  reductionist 
world,  whereby  only  'facts'  have  validity  and  the separation from the spirit world creates another chasm.

"When you find someone who is industrious, studious, compassionate, loved by friends, and neighbors, tolerant in religious views, and who can point out to you the magnificence

and efficacy of God in the simplest of things, you have found a mystic." "With these qualities, whether one is attired in sacerdotal robe or in the overalls of a mechanic, one is none the less a mystic." ~ Ralph M. Lewis


The mind can be likened to a trap for consciousness, a labyrinth, or a prison. It is not that you are in prison, you are the prison. The prison is an illusion.  If you are identified with an illusory self, then you are asleep.  Once you are aware of the prison, and you fight to get out of the illusion then you are treating the illusion as if it is real then you remain asleep.  The dream becomes a nightmare.  You’ll be chasing and running from shadows forever.
Samadhi is the awakening from the dream of the separate self or the ego construct. Samadhi is the awakening from the prison called me. You can never actually be free because wherever you go  your prison is there. Awakening is not about getting rid of the mind or the matrix.  On the contrary, when you are not identified with it then you can experience the play of life more fully, enjoying  the show  as it is  without cravings or fear. 

 The divine game of lila, the game of playing in duality; dancing with Shiva.  Human consciousness is a continuum, on one extreme, humans  identify with material self, on the other extreme is samadhi, the cessation itself.  Every step we take on the continuum toward samadhi, brings less suffering. Less suffering does not mean life is free from pain. Samadhi is beyond the duality of pain and pleasure. It means there is less mind and less self  creating resistance to whatever is to unfold. Resistance is what creates suffering.

A Movie Review
   The movie Men,Women and Children, is a dark  dystopian drama revolving around the information age via  the internet, smart phones, ubquitous  pornography, gaming and the social estrangement and conflict that it can  cause. Several families and many stories comprise this   psychologically penetrating film. This rendering is a contemporary depiction of how the anonymity of a veiled identity can lead to an insatiable greed for power, deceit, isolation and the peculiar dilemma of emptiness in the midst of "company." It is a story of how young people are exposed to too much too soon; indeed, how all of us are susceptible to becoming emotionally hobbled, psychically injured, morally corrupted, cynical, confused and dissociated. Not for the faint of heart, the film is at times briefly explicit with pornography and crude language to depict the identity crisis and abuse of power so prevalent in this odd era of cyber space and its prying  surveillance society. The use of sexual imagery is not designed to appeal to prurient interests and is more a cogent instrument of teaching: a minimalist study with maximum intricacies.

For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.
Adolf Hitler

The evil of racism is that it is a violation not only of another’s dignity, but also of one’s own person or soul; the failure of connection with others is a failure to understand or feel what it is one’s own humanity consists in, what it is to be alive, and what it is to see both oneself and others as being ends not means, and as having souls. However much anodyne talk there is of ‘one’s kind’, a society that is racist is a society that cannot accept itself, that hates parts of itself so deeply that it cannot see, does not want to see – because of its spiritual and political nullity and inanition – how much people have in common with each other.
