conversations in the night
The part of me that loves chaos also loves the edge also loves obstacles and challenges. She says here take my picture I’m going to perform something I’ve never done before. She is the ferocious competitor who finishes first. She is the one climbing to the top of the rope with no legs . She is the one who does the exact opposite of the other people just because she wants to prove it can be done. Last night I woke at 3:33 in full blown conversation with one of my all time favorite Philosophers. I had to write…
Alan: There is no right way or wrong way there is simply the way you are doing it right now
The light and the dark must exist at the same time, with out the other neither will exist.
Chaos and structure are both necessary and both right. The only difference is the sensors we use when trying to interpret each structure. Structure is easier to notice and we use our eyes that are made to see in the light. Chaos is a little messier and requires the use of our touch or feeling. We must bump up against it (what ever it is) in the dark and make sense of what we are feeling. A chair in the dark.
Try walking through the house with out turning on the lights if you run into a chair you must reach out and feel the chair to know exactly what it is then you may start cursing the person who left the chair, then you might realize the chair was strategically placed in order for you to bump up against it and determine that your feeling sensors are intact and very important in distinguishing your surroundings.
If this were done in a structured manner then we might of just turned on the light, missed the chair completely never having to use your feeling sensors but your eyes instead, and now you are wide awake since the light told your brain its time to get up.
There is no right, there is only right now. Every thing that we bump up against in the night has its purpose. Everything here is for your experience of it.
Hate feels yucky, sadness well that feels tiresome, anger feels like a waste of energy. Sitting quietly feels delicious, noticing beauty feels enlivening, being inspired feels powerful. Its all a matter of what you want to feel.
Thanks Al~ now back to bed.
