“What I mean when I say I believe in “God” is very different from what most folks believe — but the end result here is that I now believe the universe has meaning, I think there is a strength and power in love, and I am optimistic about the future”.
Thanks for grappling out loud. I especially liked the story on your website that talked about the self. (Bitcoin a strong 2nd). I have been tracking with similar thoughts that the self is a made up symbol.
I also agree with you. It is context that gives life meaning.
Is context our personal identities that we have accumulated? Or is context larger than ourselves? When you get down to the bottom, where there are no lies left, or no symbols, is love all there is?
Is this context of love allow for freedom, creativity and peace of mind?
I also like when you talk about the Zen “Beginners Mind”. The open mindedness sounds like love too. And creativity and freedom too!
