Truth, beauty & goodness

About: commentary on 2nd thwan of hex #21

Truth, beauty & goodness are necessarily founded on falsehood, ugliness & evil, which are as manure to grow roses ! (CFR 1964 Tai Shu p.1643)
 

I have come into this world to make a difference in human evolution: physically & spiritually - to teach or show by example the power of Love & the Golden Rule on this plane, NOW! to guide, assist, inspire & sow the seeds of a peaceful revolution & transformation - like the rose which transforms the substance of a manure pile into the beauty & fragrance of a flower .

I stand for the possibility that each HUMAN BEING becomes a Star in the Garden of the Universe! (MR 1996)

Then too the Charter of Compassion says just about the same thing in a different way. It could be a good idea to read their Facebook Page . The I which says "I have come into the world ......" (above) can be projected into as an Ego by anyone.

a rose growing from manure is a powerful image ... of course i like it .

the trikey part, motivation wise, is which part does one identify with ... what  part does one play in the drama .... the flourishing rose, or the shit.  and of course it is everyone's personal choice.  i stated mine in taking sides.  the beauty, and scary responsibility,  i find here is that there no absolute viewpoint from which to choose ... it really is up to each one of us personally.  i think that is a hard one for most people to swallow ... so maybe that beauty is just in my eyes .
The soul is free to experience anything it wants that it can; so also evolution. It there is a fork in the road ahead take the one you choose.


good idea ... i agree

and on a lighter side, this perchance is pertinent ... read all the way to lesson 6.
1-5 were new for me. I had heard #6.  Not sure what this all has to do with the topic except that they all mention shit.
I like this one"

"The Hungry Fly"

There was a fly buzzing around a barn one day when he happened on a pile of fresh cow manure. Since it had been hours since his last meal, he flew down and began to eat. 

He ate and ate and ate. Finally, he decided he had eaten enough and tried to fly away. He had eaten too much, though, and could not get off the ground.

As he looked around wondering what to do now, he spotted a pitchfork leaning up against the wall. He climbed to the top of the handle and jumped off, thinking that once he got airborne, he would be able to take flight. Unfortunately, he was wrong and dropped like a rock, splatting when he hit the floor. Dead.

The moral to the story is: Never fly off the handle when you know you're full of shit.

RS on the true, beautiful & good ← a bit esoteric:

Mark de LA says

This bond is strengthened by a love of truth and Integrity. Nothing establishes man’s true and original sense of existence so firmly as a feeling for truth and truthfulness. To feel himself in duty bound first to “prove all things” he utters, to set due restraint on all his words — this helps to consolidate the sense of existence that is worthy of his being. To be aware of the spirit within the physical body — with this, indeed, the sense of being is connected. There is, in effect, an intimate kinship between the physical body and this ideal of Truth.

The world of spirit in which we live during our pre-earthly existence is always present. We have but to stretch out our arms, as it were, to this pre-earthly world of spirit. Although it is always there, a link can only be forged in the depths of unconscious life when man glows with enthusiasm for truth and truthfulness. And when his heart thrills with love for the beautiful, this too forms a bond with pre-earthly existence.

Can WE change the ego via a Bakti Yoga mentality from an “I” to a “We” ? xor εντελέχεια ?
From RS – a fairly decent idea from the bible:

We see models of cooperation of single beings in a whole in the whole nature. Take only the human body. It exists of independent beings, of millions and millions of single independent living beings or cells. If you look at a part of this human body under the microscope, you find that it is composed of such independent beings. How do they co-operate? How has that become unselfish which should establish a whole in nature? None of our cells asserts its selfhood egotistically. The marvellous tool of thinking, the brain, is likewise formed from millions subtle cells, but they all work on their place harmoniously with the others. What does the cooperation of these little cells cause, what does it cause that a higher being is expressed within these little living beings? It is the human soul, which produces this effect. However, never could the human soul work here on earth unless these millions little beings gave up their selfhood and serve the big, common being which we call the soul. The soul sees with the cells of the eye, thinks with the cells of the brain, and lives with the cells of the blood. There we see what union means. Union means the possibility that a higher being expresses itself by the united constituents. This is a general principle of life.

Five human beings who are together and think and feel harmoniously, are more than 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1, they are not only the sum of five, just as little as our body is the sum of five senses. However, the living together and living in each other of the human beings signifies something quite similar as the living in each other of the cells of the human body. A new, higher being is among the five, already among two or three ones. “For where two or three meet together in my name, I am there among them” (Matthew 18:29). It is not the one, the other and the third, but something quite new originates from the union. However, it originates only if the single human being lives in the other, if the single human being not only gets his strength from himself only, but also from the other. However, this can happen only if he lives unselfishly in the other. Thus, the human unions are the mysterious sites, in which higher spiritual beings delve themselves to work using the single human being, as the soul works using the parts of the body.

My garden is so fluid with hills of colors & a multitude of plants such that any view one can find many synergies of individuals – a perfect model from focus to focus. A movie of a walk through it would be wonderful ; now and then changing depth of focus.
#focus 👀

this morning I noticed at first one flower in the distance – star shaped – tiny – & grocked the flora as a metaphor of the heavens; galaxies, zodiac, & synergistic gatherings of stars. null
