….and I am 71. It’s always easy to remember the year of my age. Born in 1950, as Zero, I simply subtract 50 from the year or in the case of 2021 I add silly add 50. There are more than many things I love about my time as a 71 year and of course, many things I miss about my youth. My easy access to love and sex in my life, my membership into the youth club of our culture, and most of my parents whose presence I miss dearly. Looking back now, they were truly my best friends and never left my corner in the boxing ring of life.
I define myself as wise and enlightened because I know myself to be nothing more than a viewpoint, But don’t try and locate that point unless you want to experience Infinity. It’s there but it’s not.Put a mirror in front of you and then another one in back of you. You will definitely see an image but that mage has no beginning or end. That is where you and I, knowingly or unknowingly, live.
We are, at our essence. an awareness, an observer, a seer, without eyes. As my mother would say, we have the same quality as God (Consciousness) just not it’s Quantity. My experience is that living within that awareness, requires nothing to be known or understood. Perception is all that is needed to move through Life. Living in this infinite connection through our mind, empties our mind which no longer thinks thoughts, but instead, sees things as they are.
