Streets of Desire

The Play of Life's Forces

The Parapsychology ~ The Study of the Twists and the Turns of the Mind: To entertain this understanding, that the metaphysical mind is not the physical brain; but that the metaphysical mind is the playhouse, the theater for the stages of life, one may begin to analyze the temperament, attitude and behavior of our actions in terms of the three dimensions of self - the id, the ego and the superego that produce the lives we live. With this awakening one may come to the sense, a feeling and awareness of life as being more than what meets one's eye as a physical observer to the grand experimental production that we all play a part in, as we will the emotions of our desires...The play of our life force is produced by our thought-desire as we act out our parts in this grand occasion of existence...



Background: Excerpts from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desire ~ Hobbes (1588–1679) asserted that human desire is the fundamental motivation of all human action. The Buddha stated, according to the early Buddhist scriptures, that monks should "generate desire" for the sake of fostering skillful qualities and abandoning unskillful ones... Just as desire is central to the written fiction genre of romance, it is the central theme of melodrama films, which use plots that appeal to the heightened emotions of the audience by showing "crises of human emotion, failed romance or friendship", in which desire is thwarted or unrequited.


Introduction: The metaphor, "Streets of Desire," represents the life stage and its actors as life sometimes produces ridiculous and incongruent effects from our choices as we experience the incompatibility of the selfish choices we make. This mixed metaphor theme permeates our every thought as we journey this stage of existence we call life along the avenues and ways on the streets of desire...


The Stage of Life: To begin one must realize, "Life is but a journey along the streets of desire..." One may see the comedy of it all, the mystery of it all, or one might see life as a tragedy of ecstasy or agony, none the less, whether happy or sad, these are the moods within the play of life's desires as we seek to discover, explore and experience the domain, kingdom and realm of thought we journey through seeking the spirit of our awareness along the avenues and ways on the streets of desire...


The Characters of Life: The life play composition is the series of fickle interests we humans explore as we search for affection within the context of our lives; but our willfulness for capricious change and variation creates lives that are surely not constant in relationship with the aspiration of one's soul. The mind becomes unsteady, giddy and skittish, when the ego is faithless, flighty and inconsistent as we venture forth to discover, explore and experience the avenues and ways on the streets of desire...


The Changing Scenes of Life: The radiant rays of the sun penetrate the sky to warm the flesh but it may not do the same for the heart and soul of the bodies that harbor the thoughts of love lost on a night so dark, when the moon was absent from its post, it did not spark the flame that would join the thoughts of two so far apart, as time could not fill the gap between them even in the light of day...   Oh! the experience of life, such is its avenues and ways on the streets of desire...

The Play, the Drama and Show of Life: Over and over the life play rages on only to replay the drudged scenes of discord played to the same old weary syncopated beat that lets not the happiness sought in the depths of one's soul be discovered, yet we yearn for the perfection of a true love and the expectation of what it might bring to our heart's soul... How long and far must one travel to discover love along the avenues and ways on the streets of desire?

Life's Provocative Roles: Life offers no options other than what one makes of the marketplace of thought where one buys their thoughts from the self fabricated vendors of desire imposed by each other where each thought comes with attached emotion, and the need to will it to be. The good stuff of life's kingdom of desire is sold by the soul and the iffy stuff is sold by the ego. For instance, as we shop for our happiness we seek understanding of our fortunate times and our misfortunate times which ever it may be that we think we have or have not; but the illusion is this delusion; that there is to be loss or gain to be had in the mind where the domain, the kingdom and its realm resides, when all it is, is what one thinks it to be - good or bad, selfless or selfish, civil or evil - all the while we shop for the force to wear along the avenues and ways on the streets of desire...

The Story of Life: "To be or not to be is the only real choice for what is to be the iteration, probability and permutation of thought's desire," simply the chance to be in the play of our life force energy, as a form of being acting out the consciousness of the thought universe on the world stage. We are but the three dimensional forces of desire's form in this existence plane - we do, actually, live in the physical, the metaphysical and the mystical dimensions simultaneously as we occur as this matter in the continuum of mass, time and space energy. The show of life acts out the probabilities for the force of being or not being which provides the play of forces along the avenues and ways on the streets of desire...
