Amongst Jewish scholars and philosophical gourmands, a debate rages over which is more primary, the bagel, or the hole in the bagel? Now it seems that they share equally in importance. The synthesis of yin and yang is what we and everything is.
Recently, it has been discovered that the sun controls the climate/ weather of the Earth and that the black hole in the center of our galaxy controls the sun, and one can imagine that there is some kind of line that extends perhaps spiraling into infinity, something like what happens in the brain, when information or stimulus from outside enters and triggers a series of instantaneous synapses which end in a decision or thought, with no apparent center for making the decisions, it gives one a picture of how the universe or better, all that exists functions, that is, totally decentralized, with no "authority", maybe. there is no "it", there is only everything, just as when you ask yourself, who am I and you search and search, but in the end there is nothing that you can find, there is no "I" there is only an awareness that one is aware, with no location for this awareness, except that it seems to be somewhere in
the vast circumlocutions of the brain, and there is the sense that all is connected, that may be, by the way, the way our societies should function.
This conforms with the idea of "God" is one, the whole/ hole.
Or that nothing is everything, which is after all one of the meanings of Mofwoofoo, the mystical clown name, which was placed inside my consciousness one day, while riding on my motorcycle back in the 90's, which I adopted as my pet name. It also means if you take yourself too seriously, I probably won't take you too seriously, though it applies specifically to myself. Its kind of a joke name, which unfortunately is somewhat rare in today's overly serious world.
Of course, there is a lot to be serious about. But can you take things seriously in a light hearted way, like a divine clown. That is really being zen, which leads to opening up to love, a life-long process. Now, I am finally realizing that when I pay too much attention to the words of someone that I am with, I may be missing the deeper energy exchange that lies beneath and beyond the words. I am being too literal. This could be a big mistake because I wish to connect more deeply, on the level of love.
Awakening to love, is a life long journey, and the earlier you begin, the better. I started very late, but really, better late, than never. Living in community (Chambalabamba) is all about living in love. Almost every act one does, is an act of love for either individuals or for the whole community. It certainly accelerates the process of opening to love.
Footnote; My great, great grandfather lived in the old country, lithuania. he was quite eccentric and would wonder from cafe to cafe collecting bagelholes in his sack which he always schlepped (carried) as though it was a great weight, though everyone knows bagelholes are weightless. He is revered as a founder of the bagelhole sect (non-materialists) of judaism.
