Quote: We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit. — Edward Estlin [e. e.] Cummings (1894-1962) American Poet
Consideration: Cloistered nuns and monks spend their whole lives in silence, praying. They pray for the pope, starving children, and the good of the planet. They believe they are having a positive effect. And yet, by all accounts, things are getting worse. So, are they wasting their time? No, because they are being positive. All positive energy has a dual effect. First, on a personal level, it is making them more real because they are becoming closer to the qualities that make up the universe. Those positive choices are of value in and of themselves. And second, the prayer energy is being used for something. It is positive energy; therefore, it must have a positive effect.
• You are valuable. Recognition of your value may be external; you believe the evaluation of another because they love you. Or you can take an honest, private assessment of your own inner value.
• Einstein said you can only chase down the facts by what is observable. Science depends on it. On the level of being, the level of experience, you can actually get inside what you are observing via feelings and recognition of values. You can be on both sides of facts and truth. Observation can be both external and insightful.
Question: How do I experience experience?
Note: By being existent on a higher level of reality. By embodying the higher values of positive qualities.
