Nurture your mind Garden

Growth in the decay. #URBEXTO #Decay #Life #Growth #Light #Postapocalyptic #Ruins 🌀🌱[{Metaphor of the Mind}]🌱🌀 I am always grateful and excited to witness situations like this. When the situation looks most dire and the abandonment of a building is left to rot and decay, Life magically and willfully finds a way to grow. Scientifically it can be most positively proven how, but the conditions to set these plants to sprout from the most melancholic and depressed state, is just awe inspiring.

Through the darkness of ones own mind, no matter what situation or circumstances we are experiencing in life at this present moment, we can willfully and intentionally generate Life and Light into our own decayed and rotting thoughts of degeneration…our minds are like the Garden of Eden, if we allow our thoughts to possess us and shame ourselves from what we truly are, we are only stunting our growth and slowly deteriorate until death. As a Garden, we must toil and labour with Love and Positive intention to raise ourselves up from what ever situation and circumstance we find ourselves stuck in.

Politricks of the Mind

What is Politics? (Draft 1)

There is so much “corruption” in the world of politics, as discovered and delivered by the media, and through analysis of the numbers when it comes to money not potentially being spent where it is supposed to, politics and politicking can sometimes give off a negative connotation (for the minds of those who do not fully understand it).  HMM?  This is a topic that I won’t touch on regarding governments etc, but rather what the purpose of Politicking is, and how I/we have internal Politics of our mind.

Our mind, our conscience, our self talk, is a form of politics.

 

First off, let me answer the question I posed in the beginning.

What is Politics?

In the grand scheme of things, Politics is the organization of human beings.

From an Aristotelean perspective it is the highest form of human organization and classification.  What I mean is that Politics is the top of the food chain in terms of dealing with the Human condition, the way to organize human beings to live in harmony together, to grow, strive and uplift each other, for the sake of the Polis (city/community).

Politics aim is to work with and  find solutions to making sure the greatest good and Eudaemonia is achieved for all.  Basically the aim of politics is supposed to be able to create a system to bring forth and enable the individual to achieve their maximum potential, and self actualization!

This is what I believe.

It starts internally though.  As the external politics of governing people, citizens, to live freely and justly, harmoniously, is something we experience in daily living, politicking starts in our own mind.

Organizing our own mind, our own thoughts, beliefs, habits, and character.

Politics can receive a negative connotation because of the scandals that are portrayed in media, and actual experience in real life, regarding people who are in “power” manipulating the very people they are supposed to support, and or manipulating people for their own personal interest.

Politics is a subject that I hear to often that people avert to conversing about.  Because of the thin line of manipulation and really seeking the good.   What I refer to is, people are uneducated in determining how to differentiate “politicking” for the sake of altruism or egotism;  communal growth or communal destruction.

Before I break off too much in a tangent, politicking is tricky in a sense of learning to find harmony within the constant individual differentiations that make up humanity.

At this present day there are approximately over 7 Billion people inhabiting this earth.  That is 7 Billion individual lives, 7 Billion different minds, 7 Billion paths to peace, justice, life, – 7 Billion worlds!

How can we harmonize and find a way to organize 7 Billion individually different lives to work, live in harmony for the benefit of growth and maximizing potential for each individual, without sacrificing some for many?

It starts internally, in the individual’s mind.  Politicking our own mind.  This has been the talk of the sages, prophets and scholars since the beginning of man (at least from what knowledge I am exposed to).  This is what spawned religion in all its forms, beliefs in higher entities, gods, beings; External forms to understand the Internal.

Politicking one’s mind is where it starts.  Humans have the capacity of self talk, and are able to spawn thoughts out of one’s own volition, inception.  Generating thoughts, which create an internal dialogue in our heads, which can create anxiety, turmoil, or tranquility and harmony.  The mind is the first thing I must learn to organize and learn to politicize my self.  Set discipline govern my OWN self, my OWN domain, my OWN kingdom, before I can hope to Harmonize externally with the 7 Billion different worlds (I/We, OUI).

 

The mind, which I have the ability to take control of, and self actualize, has the capacity to manipulate me through FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real), and the capacity to transform and mutate me to Grow into my Maximum Pure Self.  Politicking the mind is where it starts, the self talk to re awaken the god within in us all.

In essence we are all GODS of ourselves.  Through the creation of ourselves from the beginning, we are here, alive, through my sense perceptions, and my ability to think is because of my conscience life.

The Path I am walking on, my Luigi Dō- is to seek inwardly my pure and true self, politicking my mind to understand that My goal is to meet my self divine, so that I may be able to Live outwardly and share my light…

You Only Live Twice.

“You Only Live Twice.  One Life for yourself, and one for your Dreams.”

In 2012, I was able to realize and live a dream I’ve had since childhood.  June 20, 2012, I was able to go to Japan.  This dream has been something I have wanted to do since I first grew a liking to anime, particular Dragon Ball Z.  Another reason this draw to Japan was so strong within me, was through my Karate training, and whole code of the Samurai, Bushido.   The trip to Japan was for play, but also some business exploring and training at the JKA headquarters.

During my journey preparing myself to set up this trip found relation to the term You Only Live Twice.

Coincidentally this is the time when the term YOLO was making airwaves in the minds of the generation.

You Only Live Twice is the movie in which James Bond had a mission in Japan, and basically the movie Austin Powers made the Dr. Evil, Project Vulcan etc. spoof off from (well technically it was a spoof of spy movies in general, but clearly James Bond is the pastiche).   The theme song by Nancy Sinatra, really struck me hearing her voice resonate the words of the theme song.

Thoughts streamlined my consciousness trying to make sense of what it would mean to live twice.

Based on the empirical knowledge of the universe through Human understanding, we have Life, then we have Death, in a linear order through the concept of time.

Technically One Life, before Death…

I got lost in my thoughts, and contemplated the meaning of One Life, and then Death.

Death comes at the end of Life, an end-point.  But does it mean that there is only one path that leads up to this endpoint?

I am thinking of a multitude of entry points and paths to reach this endpoint.  There are so much ways to Live Life until we die.  However in Life there is something I feel and believe in, Physical and Spiritual, Real world and Dream World, Corporeal and Ethereal, the Dualism, Dichotomy of the Universe’s “known” existence that is contained in Life.

Death is the unknown variable that is beyond the scope of this universe, though it could be a part of it…

The point of this expanded thought is Why I choose to understand You Only Live Twice.
When we are born, there are customs practices and roles that are naturally and socially constructed for us.  E.G Gender, born male or female, how this role impacts our lives, location, social situation, there are all these barriers that try to streamline our Lives already into a pre destined path and well, we all know the end point, death… but the Path to it?  There can be an infinite set of probabilities  to reach death based on choices…To Live twice to me means to not just bypass these choices, but rather make the choice-less action to just Live…

Choosing gives us 2 options though.

No choice, is Oneness, just action, no hesitation…

The way I interpret You Only Live Twice is through the universal Zen, Telos, Enso the eternal Return.

The flow of the Universe is Eternal,  We flow from the Life Stream of the Eternal to the Life stream of the Mortal…

So in a sense we Live Twice.  Death is potentially a bridge between the Eternal and this physical mortal realm… That I/We have no way of grasping or knowing yet…(to my limited scope of knowledge at least.

Building on this concept stemmed from my Karate, Bushido mentality of being Connected with Everything in the Universe… which stems my relation to the Japan trip, and the James Bond movie, which started this complicated contemplation to begin with.

What I Feel I know based off of my OWN personal Experience, my DŌ, so far is that I can choose to live one life, and be limited to the understanding of just living this physical realm straight until death.   Or I can open myself up, rather Empty myself into the void of the eternal, and Live Twice, eternally…  Death is just a checkpoint, but once I cross this checkpoint I have no idea if I will be able to remember things prior to the checkpoint, e.g. past lives… e.g reincarnation… e.g. Continuation…

Yes I have one physical life, my body may expire…Physical organs, mind, heart, limbs, they will expire….but will I LUIGI GARDE die when my body dies?  Do I Live based off of my material sensory experiences?  I Live My Way through contemplating this eternal realm (Nirvana? Heaven? Ether?…)  by Understanding it through the Physical…Living BOTH simultaneously but also individually, until my existence is either expired through Death, or what void I/We are not aware of…

You Only Live Twice…

To be Continued…

( I will be updating this post as I continue to understand things based off of my experiences)
