An atom, alone in the universe, has no properties.
We are what we are only by comparing to that which we are not. Without the other, there can be no self.
To say we should not compare ourselves is a deception. Likely, that is the base cause by which animum created ideals in nature, to better assess that which we could be compared to that which we currently are. Our past is best to compare things as they were, without which we would have no words, no thoughts, no images to relate to now.
The past present future are with us at every moment. As I experience it, Buddhism in some of its various forms would have me forgo a future and forget the past in order to live in the now. But the now is determined only by the existence of its alternative forms. To focus on a sense of nothingness focuses solely on the singularity and ignores the chaos from which it coalesces, collapses, attracts, forever a part of the infinity and yet forever apart. To fear and flee from chaos is to flee from all things possible and exist in a futile attempt at absorption into nothing.
Life is not that which we must escape. Life is not a state of hell which must be endured for a better existence beyond it. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, the transition point, the surface tension between states of existence. Once on the other side, we will surely find that it is merely another state, with its own expressions of hell, and heaven, and hate, and joy, and all things positive and negative. The desire for the singular divine is a desire to cease our own vibrations, to become vibrationless, lifeless, existenceless.
I choose to experience. I choose to pattern myself, all my energies, all my vibrations. I choose not to run from the singularity nor towards it, not from the chaos of all potentials nor towards it.
Balance, balance, balance.
I am a greenwitch, a sorceress, a finger of the goddess’, and anima of vibrations at such intensity that I appear solid where my interference patterns create form and shadow, matter and space between. I exist in all dimensions simultaneously, and feel the past present future all at once.
