This morning I was in a cool place about 100 kilometers or 62 miles from my residence and this time had to be taken for two and a half hours because of quite a traffic jam. This area is a mountain area where there are many tea plantations.
As always, this is a job trip as a speaker. During the trip, I chatted with the two organizers who picked me up. There are interesting questions during the conversation that really relate to the theme of my lecture material they are asking how to respond and adapt to change. The question is, “We all know that nothing is eternal in this world except change, I know that it is true, our body and mind, space and time, and everything, but I am also curious, is there really nothing eternal about us, humans, certainly other than God, can we recognize and realize that it exists but is not affected by change, by space and time? “. This friend seems to be trying hard to explain the point of his question.
The material world is always changing because our conscious mind has worked in the paradigm system of eternal change. We must be in another system to see what is unchanging and ever-present. Do you like or know about meditation? A way or even a lifestyle that can lead us to a state without mind? Or if it is too far, let’s talk about something that always happens to us, which we often experience, often we even talk about, about dreams or at least about sleep. Does the world and time, past or future, exist when we sleep or dream, even though we know that we exist there? Is not that about us, man? Why don’t we try to find out more about what does not change and that always exists?

If only we would work harder to developing a theoretical model for consciousness. Oh wait, we are too busy teaching creationism and denying climate destabilization…
Of course, there must always be an excuse to keep people away from consciousness because the world authorities and all those with an interest in the unconscious condition of mankind are reluctant to lose slaves and markets. People should always be haunted by fear and stay crazy for money.
Very interesting thoughts. Made me think of Heraclitus.
Aha! Apparently, you learn a lot about philosophy, Ellie.
I myself no longer remember it for so long until you remind me of him here. Great!
There are just some quotes that are stuck in my head. A simple sentence can have a huge meaning.
However, only certain people like to read such quote and even stuck it in the head.
Such true words, we are in a world of constant change. We don’t know the world of someone else’s world but we are all mortal human beings.
I do believe in meditation. I think its very important.
Thanks, Pamela. It is a reality that we live with our mind, which is so limited but should face the unlimited constant change and unpredictable in general. We feel so many uncomfortable things to complain about it and tend to averse but also less effort to handle or understanding it.
Thats for real. You are a wise man Albert
I proud and admire people who always try to dive the essence of life diligently as you are
beautiful photos and text, which leads you to think
Thanks a lot, Branka. Hopefully, this thought does not mess your own thought.
One thing’s for sure, on this planet we are trapped by time and the force of gravity.
You are right, as material, we are trapped in it!
I do not know the answer to this question. But I will look to see what I will find for meditation.
May you find the answer in meditation, while my answer is the last paragraph of the writing.
Nature is always beautiful for us to enjoy, is not it?
…and they are around us, or more precisely we are in it.
I start every day with Meditation and then write. I find both relax and prepare me for my day.
You have a wonderful ritual, Coach. May peace and relax be your partners for good.
I do work towards peace, but sometimes it runs away and hides from me…
Don’t we indeed have a mutual agreement to often play hide and seek with peace?
thinking about what you’ve said it is a revelation and, a consideration. Thanks for helping me see straight!
You’re welcome, Coach. It’s just that I don’t know where I’ve told you that.
Your statement about mutual agreement sometimes to play hide and seek. It confirmed something I have often wondered.
Oh, I see… that…
Maybe I may not say it as a truth but at least that is the reality for me, even though its bit hard to realize for our glasses cover it…
sometimes the best way to see a problem is from someone else’ perspective!
You are perfectly right, Coach! Many times we can’t see what others seen
I am not always sure what I actually believe. After tragedies my belief ssts is upside down. But in order to be reunited with my son again, I must somehow believe our souls live forever. Past that, I am still working on it.
However, soon we have to take a decision either to stay or across the ravine to look for what we need to see.
Yes and I am almost there Albert.
Lots of power that will help you get there, Carol.
Interesting point of view, and very different than mine. I believe that my spirit is eternal. I don’t know what the next phase holds, but I believe it exists. I have seen, felt and experienced too many things to not believe it.
We have something in common to believe. But people mostly believe that our soul will only live eternally in heaven after death and judgment day.
I don’t agree that nothing’s eternal. However I liked your post! Nice photo as well!
That’s what I realized, as you’ve said, there are things eternal. What is eternal in your opinion, Elena?
Btw, Thank you for the compliment.
