This image fits nicely with the concepts in a book sent to me by my good friend – and the producer of this LBC topic – Ramana Rajgopaul. Consistent with Eastern understanding, the individual is but one ripple on a sea of consciousness. There are certainly lesser understandings than this - and less accurate understandings - in all cultures. Working with it raises the level of my own perceptions and that can’t be bad.
But, wait! How has The Old Fossil known Ramana long enough to be engaged in a private philosophical / spiritual discussion? And, why is The Old Fossil writing about a aConsortium topic? Because I am a long-time Consortium member invited back into the fold by Grannymar.
Projecting The Old Fossil has allowed me to place my identity at arms length, allowed me to look at the ripple from afar. Physics teaches us that observation does indeed affect the observed and it is affecting me.
I have less attachment to those parts I will leave behind. Parts now unnecessary, parts of another time. It is a spiritual metamorphosis and it feels good.
All of this even though the blogging product is mostly silly fun on my / The Old Fossil’s part. The Old Fossil is lighter and prone to taking himself less seriously than I have been. Old Foss or Tee O or TOF has a certain comfort with himself that I like.
He is teaching me.
