Happy World Humanitarian Day - Paulo Coelho and Kid President

"From the moment that everything is possible, things become possible."


The Collaboration Project - Love, by JacksGap



All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing the humanity in others.
Desmond Tutu


I don’t know if these individuals are the ones I’ve heard about, but as babies, a lion, tiger, and bear were brutally kept in a dark basement as a human’s pets. Companionship and love helped these animals survive their captivity. Now rescued, they stay together and continue to teach humans — In fear, we latch to the true essentials. Survival is a mutual goal. Love, feeling, and personality is not species specific. There is no separation.

Q
What is the point of everything? Nothing matters, yet we run around making a big deal of everything-but in the grand and cosmic scale: we are tiny specs in infinity, our life here on Earth means very little in the cosmos. How does one go on living a fulfilling life when the big picture belittles everything that should matter to us? I can't just ignore it. . .

lazyyogi:

On the grand and absolute perspective, we are the infinite and it is the cosmos that it is a tiny speck within us. 

Your understanding is totally dependent on looking from the outside to the inside. You see all the vastness of outer space and the smallness of this planet and think we are something insignificant. 

What does scale matter when it comes to significance? This universe is empty space, pregnant with potentialities, that acts as the stage upon which the dance between energy and matter endlessly unfolds. 

You are making too many assumptions without realizing them and then creating existential conundrums for yourself. 

To say that nothing matters is completely ignorant of what everything actually is. But to say that something specific inherently matters is also untrue—and thankfully so! If this life had a specific meaning, then we would be even more neurotic than we are now. How terrible the prospect of life would be if we could quite literally fail!

So long as we live in suffering and confusion, our purpose is to aspire for awakening to clarity. Once that path is entered, there are no more questions of purpose. Just as a tree or flower needs no purpose in order to grow, unfold, and shine, a spiritual traveler has no purpose but the spontaneous inspiration of clarity and compassion.

You cannot live a fulfilling life because life is not here to fulfill you. You are here to fulfill life. Life doesn’t bring you things, you bring things to life. 

All of this comes down to who and what you take yourself to be. Right now you are speaking from the perspective of an individual who has assumed herself to have an inherent identity that is separate from the rest of this world and cosmos. Then there are these woes of significance versus insignificance and so on. 

When you can recognize that you are not separate from anything, that the whole of existence is an interdependent co-emerging of the All, you will unburden yourself from this confused existential suffering.

"You are not just a meaningless fragment in an alien universe, briefly suspended between life and death, allowed a few short-lived pleasures followed by pain and ultimate annihilation. Underneath your outer form, you are connected with something so vast, so immeasurable and sacred, that it cannot be spoken of - yet I am speaking of it now. I am speaking of it now not to give you something to believe in but to show you how you can know it for yourself." ~ Eckhart Tolle

I would recommend you read Eckhart Tolle’s book The Power of Now as well as take up daily meditation. 

Namaste :) Much love.


thedivinesociety: Namaste is a humbling gesture. It has a deep spiritual significance that seeks to reduce our own ego in the presence of another person. I’ve learned that one of the most beautiful ways we can honor someone is to look them in the eye and really see them.. There is no separation.
