A couple of weeks back, I wrote about how @soundwavesphoton had got me hooked on using Inspirobot. If you missed that post or haven't seen this thing, let's just say most of them turn out somewhere between ironically funny to complete nonsense. That being said, sometimes it spits out some real gems that actually make me laugh or jump into a philosophical wormhole and I'm going to talk about the one above today. All of this is totally meant to push an agenda though, and the agenda is to make you go join Swoop's contest.
I suppose the meme/quote above is meant to be ironically funny, but I feel that it's more ironically true. We as humans are attention oriented creatures and when we focus on things, it's hard to remember that a thing is just a thought form. In my opinion, this is most noticeable in regards to our relations to other people. We create a thought form in our mind that is how we see or think the other exists, but in all actually we can't really connect with other people until we can let go of our own thought forms of who and what they actually are, and that's something we all have to learn in our own way.
When we can't stop thinking about someone or something, we make them or it intangible in some way. It's always unattainable as it only exists in our mind. If I focus on money, I'll always want or need more as I'm always thinking about it and it's never just enough. The same logic applies with people. This is how we find ourselves in unhealthy relationships and putting people on pedestals or judging others. It's as if we can't simply stop and accept them as they are for what they are in this moment and appreciate them.
I'm not trying to advocate against thinking about things that are important to us or people we care about, but hanging on to these forms can become limiting in their own right. Ultimately I find that it's all about balance and that we must learn to manage our own expectations and assumption to find peace and love in the reality that we create for ourselves. Hopefully some of what I said here makes sense and if not, well it's all just my philosophical perspective about something that a computer generated as a joke after all. Namaste.
