Ballancing Act

What I mean about a "ballancing act" is this... Seems to me that pretty much everybody is in agreement , ( ie. science, so called religion, you know what I mean.) That we as humans are constructed of the same matter as the basic elements, stardust, earth, ect. Then it also seems to me that in order to understand the universe, you have to first understand yourself. To care for the Earth, you have to care for yourself. You as yourself, are part of everything, and everything is part of you. You are one circle. The Earth and all that is on the sruface, and under, in its waters, and in its sky, are another circle. The third circle, and I make no bones about it, is God the Creator. The One who is called " Long Life Happiness, The Bringer of Joy". Here inlies the rub. What do I do with all three? Which one is more or less important? How do I even begin to see how to deal with theese things? Common questions. Simple answers, belive it or not. I don't have the answers to your questions, only you do. All I can do is discribe some things to you that are true to me. So here goes my attempt at a discription of a truth. Three things CAN and Will exist in one place at the same time if allowed to do so. Problems arise when one of the three circles is moved from a state of alighnment with the other two. It doesn't matter which one that it is, The results are the same, unballance, and catistrophic failure. It has been seen time after time! Problem one: Too much of circle one. The earth has become an idle, therefore causing suffering. Problem two: Too much of circle two. Human biengs have become their own idle, therefore causing suffering. Problem three: Too much of circle three. Humans have created something that didn't need to be created, ( the pot cannot create the potter.). Therefore causing suffering. Look at what happens when we consume the Earth like hungry wolves. "Dust Bowls" are created, men and women are lost in mines, at sea, great suffering is brought by actions done in greed. Same old story. Look at what happens when we put ourselves ahead of everything and everybody. Great suffering ensues. Look at what happens now and what has happened in the past, when circle three is out of wack. Again, great suffering occurs. This is why it is a hudge mistake to create an unballanced condition. Circle three in my opinion has caused the greatest suffering of all. War and all manner of calamity take place because of it. To me it all boils down to this: ALL THREE CIRCLES ARE OF EQUAL IMPORTANCE! ALL THREE ARE ONE IN THE SAME! The natural state of all three to exist , together in one heart that beats to its own rythem. Enjoy the Earth, for it is You. Enjoy your life, for it is of all things. Enjoy " Long Life Happiness, The One Who Brings Joy", for he is the Joy Giver. Walk in beauty.
I am what I am...


  1. Mike: A neat way to look at the universe as we know it.

  2. Yes, all things are connected. When one thing is out of wack everthing is out of balance. It is not easy to walk in balance in this crazy world. Well said.

  3. Mike,

    This is a wonderful sharing of how you feel about the world! You touch on one of the points I think is SO important. When we respect ourselves, we naturally respect all that is around us. This is reflected in so many ways. It is so very clear that we are completely out of balance as a species in general. We are quickly stripping away as much of the earth as we can, and seem to be blind as to the concequences of this.

    Enjoy each moment, and the beauty it holds within!

  4. Hi, interesting post. I agree that to care for the Earth, you have to first care for yourself.

    Also, I think it is our own thoughts that cause our suffering when they are not aligned with what is happening. I like how Byron Katie puts it, "The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want."
