We Are All One...

"We all live within the same illusion and are, in our own way and in our own time, trying to understand the truth behind it all. Some may not be looking at the moment or even in this particular life, but ultimately we will all wake up from the dream and remember who we really are. Ultimately, we will all become one..."

Why Does The Universe Exist?

This question of the origin of the universe has been on my mind more than any other in my life and the pursuit of an answer to this question is the reason I write an existential blog. I truly wish there were more individuals in the world who pondered this great mystery. 

In this video philosopher Jim Holt starts his talk by asking the question, "Why does the universe exist?", and everyone laughs. Unfortunately, I think that type of response to some of life's bigger questions is a fairly common thing, as it seems we have all taught ourselves not to think too much about those things. We even convince ourselves in many cases that questions of that nature are ridiculous questions to ask, perhaps to protect ourselves from the fear of knowing or the fear of how that might potentially change the way we live and think about our lives and how we perceive our reality. 

In truth though, my whole life I don't think I've ever been able to NOT think about this question because it seems so extremely crucial to our existence, so it's always truly baffled me that anyone could go through an entire lifetime without, at least at some point, contemplating this question as well. I believe it's not only perhaps the most important question we can ask ourselves as living, breathing, members of this fantastical universe, but quite possibly the only real question there is to ask...

The Windows To The Old Soul

"You can always tell an old soul by the eyes. They will either burn brighter than the sun with the ecstatic, unparalleled, revelation of the infinite interconnectedness of all things...or they will fall deeper than the ocean under the extreme burden of a lifetime of seeing through reality in a way that those around them are unaware..." - Aaron Hutchins 

The Most Important Truth

"Perhaps one of the most important truths about ourselves that we can realize is that every one of us is filled with the divine nature of the universe and that at the end of the great lifespan of that universe, our faults and shortcomings, and the mistakes we made on this planet, will have had absolutely no significance. Only what we have contributed, and the degree to which we have loved and allowed ourselves to embrace that unity and oneness that we have with all things in existence, will have ever made any relevant difference to the universe at all..." - Aaron Hutchins

We Are The Gods We Have Worshipped

Here's a poem I wrote today about the future of humanity and the journey of each of us to discover our own divine nature... :)

We Are The Gods We Have Worshipped

"In our dreams,
We live as Gods do;
We shape the world to our liking, 
And create not just places but their faces too.

Thus, in our science, 
We do just the same;
We follow those dreams to create,
And believe that those dreams we can tame.

For in our hearts, 
We hear destiny's call;
We know that we will become bigger,
And understand that the Earth will become too small.

So, in our future,
We will blast lightyears beyond Mars;
We can already see we're becoming more conscious,
And how that itself will take us to the stars.

Then...like a star born from other stars,
that will one day explode outward too,
So will we travel the cosmos, 
And seed it with life, as Gods do.

For the universe is filled,
with the the stuff of creation,
And being made from that stuff too,
Means we're also meant to create from the big bang's cremation.

So our dreams are not trivial, 
They are the sayers of sooth;
We need only to listen,
For us to realize our own divinity's truth.

We are the Gods we have worshipped,
As the universe is made from one mind;
So all this time we've been searching,
It's been us that we've been looking to find."
