The fundamentals of sharing (reality!)

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on March 1, 2021 at 1:05 AM

Just putting this thought out there: More to myself than anyone else...


Hydrogen is not just the most abundant element in the universe, or the lightest element, it is itself a flammable, gaseous element that has that in common with the somewhat heavier element of Oxygen. Most of us learn in grade school that when two hydrogen atoms (single elemental matter particals) join up with a single Oxygen atom, "H2O", we get ... water.


Water hydrates us, it puts out fires, and it covers most of our planet. 


I use water as the simplest example of atoms becoming molecules, from single atoms congregating gaseously (or liquidly) together, to bonded molecules congrgating liquidly (or gaseous, or frozen) together, because it's among the easist to grasp in the mind. The scientific term for this bonding of atoms to make molecules is "covalent bonds," but it basically means that two or more singular atoms are sharing energy we call "electrons."


Let me repeat that another way: The very basis of the matterbound reality we live in is sharing energy; what makes the world we live in physical, is the sharing of energy.


Even the atoms themselves are simply energy in the form of... protons, neutrons, strong nuclear forces bonding them together, and the famous electron/clouds! 


New physics will be based on the energy basis beneath the matterbound physics and I am eager for it! While matterbound physics has very finite rules of interconnected and elegantly complex synchronicity, it is the simple purity of energy that I think will really bring our minds to the next levels of thinking. I can feel myself already thinking it. :D

"Do or Do Not. There is no try." Yoda speaks vibrational reality!

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on January 17, 2021 at 7:30 AM

Previously we've talked about Zeno's Arrow Paradox in terms of motion and sequences of space-time, read about it ...

Direct URL Here: https://www.lookpastit.com/apps/blog/show/49322066-zeno-s-arrow-paradox-expanded


Now, we're going to relate this concept to better understanding what Yoda meant when he tells Luke Skywalker (in the Star Wars Film "The Empire Strikes Back"),

"Do or do not. There is no try."


In our previous post about Zeno and the illusion of movement, we revealed that in a singular moment of space-time, things are exactly where and when they are, they do not "move." Indeed, the only way any of us even percieves movement is through the SEQUENCE of where-when's we call space-time. 


When I mentioned it becoming easy to understand then, the parallel realities, I mean also the same thing that Yoda meant. He tells Luke to do, or do not. He is being cheeky and drilling the point home further by saying there is no try.


Who says they 'tried' but people who didn't 'do?'


Why?


Zeno and the arrow example give us the answer. For some, it may be easier to think of a flipbook than of an arrow bing shot at a target.



[Source: https://gfycat.com/regularlineargavial-film-animation-biggest-flipbook]

[Which is really sourced from this guy: Andymation, and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIR9RPlWWsg" target="_blank">this youtube video of the flipbook. Thanks for that amazing flippbok!]


In the screen capture above, you can see the pages all stacked up to the left, many pages! But we're only really looking at two pages:

1) Our Present page, things as they are right NOW. (and Now, etc.)

2) Our most resent past page, which is the freshest in our minds but very quickly becoming one of the stack of many past pages.


Although this is a little bit a flatlander's way of thinking of space-time, if we realize that every page is a single moment of space time, where everything is exactly where and when it is, the next natural question is... how to get from one moment of space-time to the next, even when they are perceptively "next" to one another?


How does that transition happen?


Conciousness.


Even when the animator talks about drawing the flipbook's expression of 'vibration' or 'camera shake,' it is frame by frame slight differences. That is all time is in relation to space, those variations.


When Tesla says "To understand the universe think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration." Those variations are what he is talking about.


We know energy cannot be created or destroyed, it just changes or transforms form. Time is just the transformation of the energy that is one space to become another, and in the bigger picture of spaces within spaces (a city within a state- within a country -within a continent -within a planet -within an orbit -within a solar system -within a galaxy -within a galacitic neighborhood -within a known universe...) space-time is the collective of a single moment, a single page of space as variated by that specific time. This is why we don't think of our lives as space-lines, but time-lines. Time is our differential of space, we know this, but between Zeno and Yoda, we can realize it is consciousness which chooses -aware or unaware, intentionally or not- what space-time is experienced.



[image source: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7c/Riffle_shuffle.jpg]


Let me repeat that another way: Think of space-time, and the paralell realities that exist with every "choice" we "make" and "don't make," like flip books all inter-twined like one shuffles cards. The only way your consciousness knows which sequence, which flipbook to experience, is by choosing one over the other. Left or right. Good or bad. Enjoy or don't.


We choose with our thoughts.


When you think everything will work out, whole heartedly let yourself believe it, feel that sensation of that possible-truth... you are literally tuning your consciousness through the possible flipbooks and living the one you feel is real.


When you feel life sucks and suffering is required, well, that's what you get.


When you feel life is amazing and joy is required, well, that's what you get. 


You are already living this truth, the question is, are you doing it on purpose?


That's all for now, let it sink in.

Cheers,

M.E.

Control your thoughts like you control your vehicle!

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on August 11, 2020 at 8:20 PM


For those who need/want it.

The "why" you feel stuck in the yo-yo of happy and then sad/bad/mad again, is because you haven't yet trained yourself to control your thinking like you drive your vehicle.

Want to feel better, stop telling yourself you have to _____ and start telling yourself it'll all work out, because it will, especially when you stop trying to control the details (like we're conditioned to do growing up.)

Stop replaying thoughts and memories that make you feel crapy and weighed down and start making yourself focus on those good things and memories.

Start allowing yourself to believe in the best case scenario and believe that you don't even have to know how things will work in your favor, they just will.

Stop putting your attention on what IS and put it on WHAT YOU WANT without the "but" baggage and doubt.

Use your faith to allow yourself to give in to the trust that life is meant to be enjoyable and good and just keep your mind and feels there as long as you can and as often as you can.

If you're not yet mentally ready to direct your own thinking (and thus, also your feelings) then practice not thinking by picking something to listen to for a little while, like your own breathing, or a fan, or the wind, or birds, etc. Just focus on the listening without judgment or analysis. Just listen. Feel that calm of no expectations. Remember what relief feels like.

Relief is your path to feeling and thinking better. Keep reaching for the thoughts that give you mental and emotional relief; watch the awesome of your life blossom from that relief.

You're a badass, you can do this if you choose to!!!

Hugs and love for your journey!

#HEALwithIT

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on August 9, 2020 at 8:30 AM


When I see or hear someone expressing unhappy emotions about something (or many things) in their life on a repeat loop, I feel a compulsion to say, "deal with it!"

But not so long ago, I realized what I was actually meaning was, " Heal with it!"

As in, allow yourself to decide and/or recognize how/why the experience makes you a better, more enjoyable you for YOURSELF (and then others.)

I've learned that anything less than that is as good as re-wounding yourself on a loop.

The choice will always be yours, as the one living your life and feeling your feels. I, personally, wish you healing!

#healwithit

I wish everyone happiness!

REGRET; the feeling of not having learned yet...

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on August 8, 2020 at 5:20 AM



Today, I want to talk about "regret."



We think "regret" is a natural and needed part of life because we grew up being told it was a sign of a good person. Good people are good and aware enough to regret bad decisions, or good intentions that came out wrong, or things we should have done and didn't, or things we shouldn't have done and did, and so on.



Please, pay attention to the rest of the picture: "bad decisions" "good intentions that came out wrong" "things we should have done and didn't" "things we shouldn't have done and did" and "so on"...



You cannot feel regret without feeling one of these type of things is true... and that's why it feels so bad, because it isn't true. If you didn't have that experience, how would you know you prefer it the other way?



Let me repeat that in another way:

We're not born with regret. We are born with love and wanting to experience this new life, and we don't know any better.

(Literally, there is no better than being in the energy of love and wanting to experience this new life!)




We are *taught* regret.

We are taught regret for many reasons, including but not limited to the fact those who teach us regret were also taught regret, and those who taught them were also taught regret, and so on (I don't pretend to know the true origin of the feeling even if I'm aware of the etymology;) because we have a perception of good and bad, should and shouldn't, right and wrong, and we want ourselves and our kids to be on the 'right' side of these fences; because we inherently know self-reflection is a fundamental part of our evolution and growth.



It is easy to tell when something is not good for us, even when it is in the disguise of being good, and that is how it effects the next sequence of experiences you have.



When we regret, it snowballs into other things (including but not limited to) insecurity about our own decision making, insecurity about life, doing things we don't want to do, not doing things we do want to do, ignoring our instincts, loving ourselves (or others) less, depression, cowardice, bravado, *needing* the approval of others, and so on.



We can want to live better, and not have to feel regret.

We can acknowledge a better choice exists, without regret.

We can believe something is right or wrong, without regret.



To stop living with regret one needs only to master one thing:

When self-reflecting on the past, focus toward the better future.




Regret teaches us to be sorry for the past, to wish to change the past, to mourn the past, and in general, keeps us in the past even as we move into our new present and future.



Living without regret, one can acknowledge that, first and foremost, this perceived unwanted experience or thing showed us the path we would prefer in our future, and all we have to do is focus on that... the better future!

That's huge!



Instead of focusing on the thing that gave us this impression and enlightenment of what we don't want, if we focus on the gratitude for the clarity and our desire for our newly refined want, we will remain true to our desire to be good people while also enriching our future instead of living in our past.




Let me put that another way: To live without regret....


1) Acknowledge the thing you realize you'd prefer be different.

2) Be grateful that you realized it!

3) Focus on the clarity it gave you toward what you DO want.

4) Make a point to live what you DO want.



No regret necessary.

In fact, regret will slow you down and confuse you so, let it go as a thing of the past and let's build a better future for all.



For now, just let that sink in... 


Cheers and Namaste,

M.E.

THINGS! and Thinks!

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on August 5, 2020 at 7:20 PM


Today, I want to talk about "things."



"Things" being physical matter, ideas, or even experiences.



"...things themselves have no natural power to form our judgements."

  - From the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius VI.52

    (121 - 180 C.E.... over 1,800 years ago...)



When you see trash on the ground and it makes you mad, that trash did not reach into your mind and give you thoughts and feelings of being mad!


When you see that kid eating lunch all alone and it makes you sad, that kid didn't reach into your mind and give you thoughts and feelings of being sad.


When you see #blacklivesmatter and it makes you outraged because you believe #alllivesmatter, the idea that "black lives matter" didn't reach into your mind and give you thoughts and feelings of being outraged.



In all of these cases (in every case imaginable), what gives you the feelings you feel, and the thoughts you think, is you.



You are either consciously thinking thoughts in that moment that trigger the way you feel, or the "thing" activates thoughts within you that you've BEEN thinking, which have established what we call "preconceived notions" or "beliefs" or "prejudices" that instantly gives you the feels without the conscious thinking in that moment (because those conscious thoughts have been thought, and have already become an established part of your mind and perspective.)



Let me repeat that another way:

Any time you feel an instant-feeling reaction of some strong emotion or another, it is because of thoughts you have thought before with such consistency or conviction, it has become a fundamental part of your perception of reality... and not because of [whatever] you think is "making" you feel that way.



This is very important to realize, because every time we say or think something like "that [whatever] made me mad" or "that [whatever] is a sad sight" or "That [experience] made me feel..." we are neglecting the fact that we feel what we feel because of what we think, or have thought previously. Each individual unto themselves.



No "thing," be it a physical matter (from objects to plants, animals and people, etc.), an idea (from worries to dreams and everything in between), or an experience (moments we live through, personally, vicariously, and all the nuances therein), has any natural power to get inside your mind and put thoughts and feelings into it.

(Unless, of course, you believe it can and then, by the very power of your own thought, you will perceive it that way.)




Consistency is the key to building our fundamental perceptions of reality.


Consistency is what makes someone with a continued positive outlook an "optimist," and a person with a continued negative outlook a "pessimist," or a sad person "depressed," or a mad person "vengeful," or a happy person "inspired," or a questioner a "skeptic," or ...so on and so on... I hope you're getting the picture.



If ever you get tired of feeling the way you feel, start changing the way you think about "things" because those "things" are not making you feel that way, you are.



More on this later... for now... let it sink in. ����

Cheers and Namaste,

M.E.

Zeno's Arrow Paradox ... Expanded

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on July 18, 2020 at 6:45 PM


The Gloves Are Off!


Today, I want to talk about Zeno's "Arrow Paradox" supporting the idea that motion is an illusion. Then, I'll expand on the idea.


In the original thought experiment... Zeno of Elea (495-430 B.C.E.) was using an arrow being shot at a target to support Parmenides of Elea's (515-450ish B.C.E.) claim that motion is an illusion.


Even without our modern understanding of space-time/time-space, he deduced that if you shoot the arrow at the target and see it moving through the air to the target, we get the illusion of motion from one space-time to another.


BUT, if you look at the arrow in any singular point in space-time along it's path to the target, you see it still, exactly where it is then and there.


He argues, if motion were a real thing, it would exist in any moment of space-time, but we don't see motion in any moment of space-time, we only see it in the collection of space-time; ergo, motion is an illusion.




Wow. Yeah. A thought that has existed for over two thousand and five hundred years!!! Really think about it... I can't dispute it!


Now I am expanding on it:


When I lift my hand and wave hello, I realize I am not actually moving my arm or hand at all! (But you are, what about the science behind muscle movement?!) The science behind muscle movement still stands; I simply realize that it is excluding the nature of space-time which allows us to perceive the science!

-brow waggle-


The illusion of movement is because I chose the sequence of space-time that creates this illusion of motion! Think about it...


When you take this thought further into the nature of space-time, it becomes very easy to see parallel realities unfolding (not unlike a flip-book shows the individual space-time moments in a sequence that shows us movement), and to recognize the power of consciousness and choice!


More on this later.. for now, let it sink in.


Namaste,

M.E.

HELLO CONTRAVERSY! FACEMASKS!

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on July 17, 2020 at 7:10 PM

I re-wrote it, as I like to do sometimes, so it matches my frequency better.

If you haven't yet jumped on the, "Everything is Energy, Frequency, and Vibration; governed by vibrational resonance matching, e.g. the law of vibrational attraction" band wagon (so to speak) then this re-write is going to read rather nonsensical to you (most likely.)

This is my way of feeling better about all the pro-mask campaigning I keep finding myself scrolling past on https://www.facebook.com/RemmyHun" target="_blank">my FB (one of which this was inspired by.)

The next step for me is to turn my attention to the posts I do want to see more of, and give them my love.

After all, I define my vibrational points of Attraction by what I give my attention to (thinking and feeling), [ just like FB gives you more content like that which you interact with, be it comments, likes, loves, etc.,] so as long as I keep riding my "this feels better" train, I'll stay on the "happy and healthy" tracks.

So can you. 

Remmy


Steel Talon Elliott ( May 31, 1991 - June 1 2020)

Posted by lookpastit@gmail.com on June 1, 2020 at 6:00 AM


This post is in loving memory of my little brother, Steel Talon Elliott, who died this year of a heart-attack (non COVID-19 related.) 


"Remember you're human." My Mom said to me.


It keeps ringing in my mind because the implication that I think I am inhuman, or maybe superhuman... hangs there. (For the record: I am plain ole' human.)


I cannot help but to recognize this misconception that choosing to be happy all the time means we might choose not to feel ANY negative feels EVER!


When it is more like:

IF you choose to be happy all the time, when you DO feel a negative emotion (and you still do, it's a natural part of our evolution,) you know how to acknowledge it and choose your next thought toward happiness, so that the negative feels only lasts seconds, minutes, or maybe a couple hours... not days, weeks, months, years, and becomes a 'natural state of misery...'


I cannot help but to realize, this is because being happy all the time is not perceived as a human thing; because we (as a series of cultures within a global society) have been conditioned for so long to think suffering is just a part of life, and suffering is needed to make you stronger, and suffering is needed to be triumphant! Suffering makes you a good person!!!


I call bullshit.


I am not inhuman or superhuman, I am just plain ole' human who made a choice in January 2019 ***TO BE HAPPY NO MATTER WHAT***, to stop letting my happiness be tied to specific conditions I may or mayn't be able to experience in a moment.


Yes, it is a choice to be happy!


I decided I no longer wanted to be miserable, hurting emotionally, and carrying weight I couldn't barely contain or explain to anyone, but which saddened my eyes perpetually, and made me feel weak, exhausted, worthless, and (more often than I care to admit,) suicidal.

Never again!


A little over a year later, I can confidently say I don't feel like that anymore, and can barely remember when I did. Now I am happy all the time, with mere moments of sadness, anger, frustration, etc... moments that last seconds, minutes, or maaaaybe an hour, and then I am able to choose my happiness again, one thought at a time.


I spend my days happy, light hearted, full of joy and excited anticipation of what the universe will bring me to enjoy now, and now, and now, and now.... Every second is a new now.

Even the death of my little brother Steel Elliott and my cousin James T Elliott couldn't weigh me down, despite (or perhaps because of) how much I love them and myself. (Yes, and myself!)


It is not inhuman or superhuman to recognize they left their pains behind with their physical bodies when they died; AND TO REJOICE!


It is not inhuman or superhuman to recognize they are at peace with themselves, and the whole of the universe now; AND TO REJOICE!


It is not inhuman or superhuman to understand they are still with me, and never left me because we are all connected; AND TO REJOICE!


It is not inhuman or superhuman to realize when I mourn their physical presence, I am really mourning I how I felt when around them (largely happy, so largely in alignment with myself... with them happy and in alignment with themselves.); AND TO REJOICE IN THE KNOWING!


It is not inhuman or superhuman to use my thoughts to navigate my emotional spectrum; AND TO REJOICE THAT I CAN!


It is not inhuman or superhuman to realize that my emotions tell me that the WAY I am thinking about (whatever) is not the way my soul/spirit is thinking about (whatever) and so I feel bad for as long as I think like that.

It is not inhuman or superhuman to seek alignment with myself.

It is not inhuman or superhuman to HAVE alignment with myself.

It is not inhuman or superhuman to feel happy 99% of the time.




I would argue (and I thank my little brother and my cousin for taking the plunge into the next, that I might have this thought) that as our soul/spirits are pure positive energy, the natural state of our human existence IS happiness, joy, and excited anticipation, and that only through our thought-conditionings, have we believed anything else.


That, just like their physical lives were finite and they are now gone physically, every single moment we live is exactly the same... finite, and gone from our physical existence.


We think it is normal to mourn the death of a person because we acknowledge we cannot 'get them back'.... yet we do not put the same value on our moments, every moment, that we cannot get back once it's passed...


I am not trying to horde my enlightenment and look down on all those who don't have it (I don't look down on anyone, because they are me, in the deep of it)...


I have been working on forming the image-thoughts and word-thoughts that will help me illustrate the simple truths I have discovered through my own experience, for the express purpose of enjoying sharing what I have learned.


I want everyone to be happy. (But my happiness isn't contingent on it.)

I want everyone to be in alignment with themselves. (But my alignment with myself is not contingent on it.)


I want everyone to enjoy the fact they have negative emotions to help them navigate what their soul/spirit is doing/thinking, and that their positive emotions help tell them when they're back in alignment with their whole self. (But my understanding is not contingent on anyone else agreeing with me. I know by experience and no one can take that from me.)




So, I challenge you, if you read through this whole soliloquy, the next time you feel bad, ask yourself if it is because you're proverbially going in the wrong direction, or because you're thinking thoughts your soul/spirit won't think with you... try to reach for thoughts that make you feel happier... do it consistently, and see if you don't find your life changed forever!


I love my little brother. I love my cousin. I love everyone who joins me in the physical world right here and now, all those who will come, and all those who have come before me.


Namaste.

M.E.

Communication–

automatically hard-wired accurateness,

and sometimes even preemptive

to reality unfurling;

natural chemical clairvoyance,

resonating with energy

inducing

action in reaction,

without consultation

of conscious decisions.

 

We’re in it.

Get used to it.

 

Make nice

with your inner instincts

directly connected

to most of reality,

you’re not

consciously aware of.
