It is necessary to be okay with not knowing to find inner peace. As long as we have to know there is always something to think painfully about.

Well meditation is good, it is good to visualise our inner world, our thoughts and our imaginary friends and to give value to the time that we used to invest and is needed to travel in a tube cos it is our relaxing time. It is however during the time in which we are in the tube the moment in which we are more in alert as if we don’t get down to the right tube stop we won’t find our way home and we will get lost in our outer space that must be so much similar to our inner world but that is much more hard to visit.

So you too have an imaginary friend 🧚‍♂️? Mine are Gandalf and Tinker Bell, though I'm more on real people, like Jesus or Bernadette.

In my work of giving people access to their inner resources, I found that words have a distinct quality of experience they illicit when connected with. Qualities of experience are the qualities we ascribe to what we are experiencing at a moment. So for example, feeling expansive, flowy, full, empty, loved, welcome, productive, these are qualities of experience. Some people say that words are neutral, and we humans give charge to them, either positive or negative. While I agree we can project positive and/or negative qualities on a word, my sense is that they do seem to have their own experiential qualities to them already, possibly transmitted from the noosphere. Then they transmit what we as a collective human race project onto these words. They seem to elicit more homogeneous/universal qualities of experience in different individuals. That is what we have experienced in the collective I play with. What I find remarkable is the quality of 'Work'. 'Work' is actually a core inner quality next to for example Love, Power, Affect and Intellect. It is not something to aim to transcend, aiming to not work anymore. You can if you want to, but 'work' is that quality that has us actually make the effort to make a decision, to consciously choose our values and live by them. 'work' is that quality of not going with every direction of the wind, and instead following our path purposefully and intentionally. Even if we may never need to work again in a near future scenario, I don't think work is going anywhere. Work is virtuous. If we want to feel we keep on growing as individuals work as we know it may change, but work itself isn't going away.

Not so much an insight as it is more a current opinion: Striving for spiritual enlightenment in the traditional sense may very well be the pinnacle of spiritual bypass. Imagine sitting on a mountain avoiding and never coming down to experience the complexities of life. Isn't this a textbook example of an avoidance strategy? Trying to even out all sensations is exactly what we should not do. The more conscious we become, the more we feel, the more sensations we experience. The psychic energy needed to push away unwanted sensation is so immense that it leads to the exact opposite of the pleasant experience of life that we want. The amount of energy it drains is so big that we lower the quality of our experience to unpleasant lows. No matter where the sensations come from, don't push them away.
