Are there really any coincidences?
- I don't believe so -
MY life? Maybe not even A life. This I (Auditess) doesn't really think of life as something you can have or own. But there is obviously something in me that can observe and experience.
"In fact, it is not your own life, and yet, paradoxically, you are more "you" than ever before"
* Richard Rohr, The Naked Now *
Here I present bits and parts of how this particular I experience and explore life.
"Eternity isn't some later time. Eternity isn't even a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now that all thinking in temporal terms cuts off.... the experience of eternity right here and now, in all things, whether thought of as good or as evil, is the function of life."
* Joseph Campbell *
Hypothesis: Just like the millions and millions of snowflakes that come in to existence, fall and melt, never to materialise into the same design again - an I is never to appear in the exact same configuration again. Each flake have the same kind of existence (come to be, fall, melt), each is made of water, but each have its own specific configuration, and specific surroundings - right there and then. Just like every I.
"Once you stop learning, you start dying."
* Albert Einstein *
Every I being, though infinitesimal, a piece of a large puzzle. A puzzle beyond every I's apprehension. Beyond the apprehension of all I:s put together!
For creation/nature/universe/God to know - for us to play our parts.
"So certain were you. Go back and closer you must look."
* Yoda *
Spots and dots in the universe, connected by an universal psyche. Just like space is filled with uncountable celestial bodies, all connected by, and sharing, a wast amount of space.
"A challenge lifelong it is, not to bend fear into anger."

My mother tongue is not English, so texts may (and most certainly do) include several long-shots, oddities and/or pure linguistic mistakes. But what are a linguistic faux pas, or two, among us (all connected) friends?
"Happens to every guy sometimes this does"
* Yoda *
Life doesn't take a break because I go to sleep.
I have been given a dreaming unconscious,
just as I have been given a beating heart.
I don't do the dreaming, I don't do the beating.
They are both filled with life,
they both have a purpose.
They both work in mysterious ways.
For Nature to know - for Me to find out.
As long as my heart keeps beating.
Until the curtain to (my portion of) the play closes.
"Soon will I rest, yes, forever sleep. Earned it I have. Twilight is upon me, soon night must fall."
* Yoda *
"Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
* Gandalf, The Hobbit *
"The Tao is elusive and intangible.
Oh, it is intangible and elusive,
and yet within is image.
Oh, it is elusive and intangible,
and yet within is form.
Oh, it is dim and dark,
and yet within is essence.
This essence is very real, and therein lies faith.
From the very beginning until now its name has never been forgotten.
Thus I perceive the creation.
How do I know the ways of creation?
Because of this. "
* Tao Te Ching * 道德經 *
