Just a karmic Imprint upon the flow of consciousness

ShoshinShoshin No one in particularNowhere Special Veteran

As it goes I am just....
a vibrating bundle of energy flux held together by 'karmic' glue.... and what "I" do NOW is because of what "I" did back then... and so NOW's the time.... to change what I do (,,,a self fulfilling (or fool filling) prophecy.... if you get my drift ;) )

Ongoing karmic Imprinting upon the flow of consciousness...This (so it would seem) is what I AM NOW...and so "I" have to make a good impression on myself ....and there's no time like the present... :)

What are you ?

    If I said I knew, I would be expressing a delusion. If I said I don't know, would that be more accurate? I'm not sure - still thinking about it, but I fear that may also be a delusion.

    So ...... bug on a branch!

    "I" don't need to know now for "I" cannot possibly fathom nor decide. For example, even within the universe of Buddhism, how does existence come to be in the first place? Is there neither a beginning or an ending? Too mind boggling. So just do. Or do not. And if "I" choose to do a certain way, then "I" will work up to a level or condition where there is no longer rebirth. At which time, "I"'ll remember all my past lives, and become generally omnipotent. Which is pretty cool.

    I think Lao Tzu said it best when he said, “The Tao that can be told is not the Tao”.

    The remnants of past experiences are the building blocks of what I AM right NOW...and so the cycle of the self indulgent daydream (AKA creation) continues...

    The can feels cold in my hand but the liquid is hard and almost burn like.

    Cola is ok with pizza but when the pizza is gone I recommend water.
