Is there a "beginning?" If so, there would need to be an "end," right? Can something begin that has no end? Is that possible?
It seems that life is transitory, as is everything about it. Nothing is the same from moment to moment. It just may seem to be, due to its proximity to the moment that just expired. But if it actually, truly, was the same, how could moments seemingly add up equate to "old age?"
If the idea that things "add up" is "real," then other ideas associated with it would seem to be, too. Is there no line of demarcation? We certainly would like for there to be one in which we get to stand "just" this side of the line.
I have no idea where I am going with this. It is just one of the many tangents my mind seems to find itself on. It is said that life is an illusion, and, as such, we can somehow "control" it. But how the heck does that work?
So much of what we believe, I suspect, is what we want to believe. But do our beliefs truly correlate to reality? I am just not so sure, as things don't always become or remain what we would want them to be. And I have a really hard time with the idea that those things we have just somehow done wrong.
And then there are those who believe that within this limited illusion are souls that truly are forever. The body may be gone, but the soul goes on. The soul apparently does not "live" by limitations, but yet seems to somehow exist within them.
I am really sleepy, so I am gonna end this for now. The above image was completed today. If you like it enough to want it, we can discuss the donation amount. Be in touch.
