Am I crazy or is this an analogy of how our souls are related to God (Nature, Universe, etc.)?
Like they say, the eyes are the window to the soul.
Buddha calls everything an illusion.
Maybe think about it this way. When a person prays or meditates, the soul carries the image up to God. We can't see it, but it's like looking into space.
For instance, we can see some stars from Earth, and it just looks like a dot of light.
The furhter you go, the larger the star apears, the further you go towards the star, you realize it is clouded by gas and dust but the image it produces is called a nebula ( in short anyways cause there is more to it than that) , keep going towards the same star you realize what a star is, it's a giant ball of burning gas, keep going and you go right past and see that that star also contains another star. Keep going and what you have is empty space with a dot, just like on Earth, but keep going...
Hence, what is out there is the same thing we have inside, it's called the soul. I try to imagine being on the other side of the Universe looking at us, and seeing that we shine just like stars from a distance. that our inner light our soul is so bright we can not see it, so it has to be observed from the other side (God). Radically, the soul is the smallest (in my mind) "thing" ever period. Just like the largest star out in space that we will never reach will apear the smallest. So too, we will not be able to see our own souls.
But...you can feel it, just like you can feel wind even though you can't see it. You know it is there.
You can define how wind blows, but no one knows where it came from in the first place or why it blows. Or air, we can define it, we breath it, and we know it's here all the time, but it doesn't obstruct the view of the television. Or does it?
You never know, that's why it's called an illusion. Just like nebulas, the pictures we see with color are colors added to the picture defining the elements of the make up of the gas or whatever componets. and they are really beautiful. However if you went out into space, into those areas we can't reach ourselves, they probably don't look anything like what the pictures come back like.
What bugs me on the star trip though, is how come they say that the light we see from a star is the light that traveled from a billion year explosion, but if you traveled directly in it's path, it is still dark?
Life is a trip on the steller and spiritual tip.
My stuperior intellect tells me that, consciousness gave birth to matter.
Sandy, I dub thee the Goddess of poetry
I did not really think about such an interpretation, thanks for opening it for me.
And, it is probably absolutely unrelated, but I was reading your poem and at the same time listening to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2Ldt2b- … re=related
... and they were so good together
However, my original thought was quite different. I was thinking more in the line of drops and the ocean, and how good the tiny pieces of photo glass keep the *whole* image. When we are talking that we are parts and the whole at the same time, I think hologram comes as a perfect analogy...
I love Tori Amos. I like your thinking too. Hologram is a perfect analogy. thanks Misah.
Did I tell you I like you voice a lot, too? Sure I'm not a pro, but I think you have a potential But the quality of your records is - ummm - not so sound... (pun intended )
Actually, the hologram is great analogy for the nature of the Universe and material reality, I think. Human/Divine consciousness is the light, and there is a point of singularity which is the "glass". When illuminated by consciousness, the point of singularity springs forth five-dimensional space-time, which is as ephemeral as a holographic image, but which we fondly imagine to be "real".
Another point of view I did not think about
I always learn something form you Jenny, thanks!
Isn't this amazing nobody uses holograms for the purpose of teaching how Universe works? At least I did not hear about it...
