The Story of You, Me, and Everything in Between

“So, who the heck am I?”

Good question. I’ve been many things. For eons and eons, and eons of time. Three times exactly. The rest of it I can’t remember. But if you could count it in human years, a single eon would be close to your understanding of infinity.

“Hey, but you didn’t answer the question!”

Bear with me, dropping this on you in the first place is quite a challenge in itself. Explaining myself in terms of logic — is an even bigger challenge. Especially without being too scientific about it.

“And that is exactly what the Devil would say!”

There’s little praise in that. I am the Devil, as much as I am not. I’ve known sin, misery, and destruction, as much as I’ve known love, tenderness and bitter loss. There’s simply no way you can put your mind around this. But what you can do — is go a little further. Find meaning beyond your everyday conduct. Discover other layers of intelligence embedded within you and reconnect with the ever-present energy of life, buried deep under the grounds of your casual conditioning.

“And how do you suggest we do that?”

Accept the problem. The world doesn’t work the way you think it does. In reality, nothing is what it seems. And while this may still sound like a bunch of bullocks, those tech-savvy friends of yours will likely confirm the statement.

“So why even bother to talk? Let the evolution do its thing.”

I am as much a part of the evolutionary process as you are. All things considered — humanity is by no means exemplary. You wage wars, kill millions of species, yourself included. For what exactly? Praise? Fun? Glory of Satan? You’re evolving towards chaos, and while this may be a strategy for dim consciousness — You, on the other hand, claim to be almost Godlike. Godlike ignorant, to say the least.

“Hold on, how can you even do such a thing? You claim to be unborn in the first place.”

Life and death are nothing but a shift in consciousness. Evolution is the fundamental process of life, consciousness is its substance. Both are derived from a vast unbounded space that can not be put in words. Nothing is there, yet everything can be. Such state is eternal, perpetual and ever-present. It can be felt at any given moment of your life as a blissful sense of being. And while this may sound simple, it may also be one of the hardest things for you to feel.

It's all just a matter of perspective. www.deboutonner.com
