MP on January 31, 2019 at 3:05 pm Too funny! Mary on February 1, 2019 at 11:57 am Initially I kept wanting to turn the picture “right side up”. Then I started noticing new designs and shapes that would not have caught my attention if the picture had not been presented this way . . . an interesting and fun mapping on how I function . . . Michael Mamas on February 2, 2019 at 6:40 am Don’t feel alone Mary! Two boxes or three depending on how one looks at that diagram… Kittens flipping on their sides when the lines on the walls are flipped. It is the nature of life that one clings to formulas to fathom the unfathomable, to get by. Formulas are great servants but not great masters. Spiritual awakening means seeing beyond formulas, beyond paradigms. That is easy enough to understand intellectually, but not so simple to spontaneously live. As Maharishi Patanjali pointed out, freedom from conditioning of the Chit (the storehouse of impressions) is not so simple. Many long for spiritual emancipation, but they insist upon bringing their conditioned perspectives, their formulas, with them! I know you know all this Mary. But it merits repeating for everyone 🙂 Mary on February 4, 2019 at 3:47 pm Each explanation sinks in a bit differently than the last – and each is appreciated. Thank you.
