Beyond Thinking

Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds by www.innerworldsmovie.com

One who looks outside – dreams; One who looks inside – awakes.
~ Carl Jung

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We live our lives pursuing happiness “out there” as if it is a commodity. We have become slaves to our own desires and craving.
Happiness isn’t something that can be pursued or purchased like a cheap suit. This is Maya, illusion, the endless play of form. In the Buddhist tradition, Samsara, or the endless cycle of suffering is perpetuated by the craving of pleasure and aversion to pain. Freud referred to this as the “pleasure principle.” Everything we do is an attempt to create pleasure, to gain something that we want, or to push away something that is undesirable that we don’t want. Even a simple organism like the paramecium does this.
It is called response to stimulus. Unlike a paramecium, humans have more choice. We are free to think, and that is the heart of the problem. It is the thinking about what we want that has gotten out of control.The dilemma of modern society is that we seek to understand the world, not in terms of archaic inner consciousness, but by quantifying and qualifying what we perceive to be the external world by using scientific means and thought. Thinking has only led to more thinking and more questions. We seek to know the innermost forces which create the world and guide its course. But we conceive of this essence as outside of ourselves, not as a living  thing, intrinsic to our own nature. It was the famous psychiatrist Carl Jung who said, “one who looks outside dreams, one who looks inside awakes.” It is not wrong to desire to be awake, to be happy. What is wrong is to look for happiness outside when it can only be found inside.

About Love and Forgiveness

You can see this woman?
I came into your house but you provided no water to wash my  feet. But she has washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair.
There was no warmth in your greeting, but she, from the moment I came in, has not stopped covering my feet with kisses.
You gave me no oil for my head, but she has put perfume on my feet.
That is why I tell you, Simon, that her sins, many as they are, are forgiven; for she has shown me so much Love.
But the man who has little to be forgiven has only a little Love to give.

~ Jesus / Luke 7.44-47

Caught in a Dream (Tesla)

Now, if you can imagine this, the whole world sharing one big kiss.
These are thoughts all through my brain, that I daydream everyday.
That I’m alive and well, and right now, I’m alive, I’m feeling…well.
It’s my life to live my way, so I’ll keep daydreaming away.
And who knows, maybe someday, it will all come true
And I will get my way, and we will live as one.

I’m caught up in a dream, I’m gonna wish for it all.
No one’s gonna tell me how, no way, this is my dream now.
I’m caught up in what seems simply impossible,
I ain’t gonna change a thing, no way, it’s my dream.

And what cannot will be done, for every living thing under the sun.
Forget color, forget race, and just be one big happy face
Among this sea of people, live among God’s creatures, sharing love.
That was sent down from above, here to share with one another.
Father, brother, sister, mother, everybody sharing love, sharing love.

I’m caught up in a dream, I’m gonna wish for it all.
No one’s gonna tell me how, no way, this is my dream now.
I’m caught up in what seems simply impossible,
I ain’t gonna change a thing, no way, it’s my dream, this is my dream.

What if…I close my eyes and everything will be alright.
Here in my fantasy, living in harmony
Make my dream come alive.

I’m caught up in a dream, I’m gonna wish for it all.
No one’s gonna tell me how, no way, this is my dream now.
I’m caught up in what seems simply impossible,
I ain’t gonna change a thing, no way, it’s my dream.
I’m caught up in a dream, I’m gonna wish for it all.
No one’s gonna tell me how, no way, this is my dream now.
I’m caught up in what seems simply impossible,
I ain’t gonna change a thing, no way, it’s my dream

Now, if you can imagine this, the whole world sharing one big kiss.
Take away the pain and hurt, make like heaven here on earth.
Without reason to die, and given everlasting life for all.
