Questions and Answers

Here are a list of questions, provided by my friend Charles, that I have answered to the best of my ability. I think that it is important for us to ponder these types of things every now and again just to see where we're at. I'm sure these answers are different than they would have been 5 years ago, or will be 5 years from now. Times change, and so do our ideas. I just thought it would be an interesting thing to take a look at now and again. I'm the type that can't stand change. But no matter how hard I may fight it, it happens anyway. So here are my answers. Maybe we could see yours as well.

Q: How important is music in your life?
A: I enjoy listening to music, yet I could do without it. Sometimes I feel as if it keeps my mind in a bad place. Some of what I listen to is a bit negative. However, it's what I can relate to. It's an expression of blottled up anger released.

Q: What are your views on Time? Does it seem to be speeding up or slowing down?
A: At the present moment time "seems" to be at a stand-still. In my life, it's as if I were awaiting a jury to decide my fate, if you can imagine that. The only problem is, I'm the judge, jury, executioner, as well as defendant. Beyond this world I believe time does not even matter. So, what difference does it really make?

Q: How do you perceive Reality?
A: Reality is an illusion. If that isn't a paradox, I don't know what is. Now, if you look at it with duality in mind, neither really exist. If reality is an illusion, then what is the illusion? Is that the reality??

Q: Would you agree with the idea that You are the Creator of all your experiences?
A: Oh, most definitely. The only problem is that I have not yet been able to stay aware of that. Usually my human self takes over and creates my experience. Which, let me tell you, usually sucks. But what if you turn that around? What if your experiences create you? Somehow I think that's the way that it is supposed to work. Only through awareness of experience can we awaken.

Q: Do you pay much attention to your dreams?
A: That's not a very easy task. I rarely remember my dreams, though I know it happens. I am beginning, however, to wake up in the biggest dream of all. The one sometimes referred to as "reality".

Q: What makes you smile?
A: This list right here will be quite short. My son makes me smile most of the time. The thought of what's to come when I leave this place really makes me smile. Like I said, the list is short. Something I need to work on.

Q: What's the best dream you've had recently?
A: I honestly can't answer that question. Hopefully someday real soon I can.

Q: Have you ever had any experiences of an Angelic or Extraterrestrial kind?
A: I have had a few. Nothing really extraordinary. They've all been vague enough to make me wonder if it really happened, or if my mind was playing tricks on me. I do believe experiences of these kind do happen, I'm just not awake enough yet to experience them fully.

Q: Could all of this possibly be a grand Dream You are having right now?
A: The right question would be "Who's really having the dream, me or you?".

Q: What do you love to do?
A:I like to write down my thoughts. It helps me in the way that I can one day go back and look at where my mind was in the past. I also like to gamble. I'm not gonna have to get my house out of hoc or anything like that, I just enjoy the occasional wager. Hell, if I have to be here for a while I might as well enjoy some of it. I also like to read. I'm a good cook, therefore I love to eat. Learning is a love of mine as well.

Q: If you could meet anybody living or dead - who would it be & why?
A: I'm not really sure. As far as I'm concerned, in the grand scheme of things nobody is really that important. Everyone that I need to meet will cross my path at some point.

Q: Do you believe in Life after death?
A: First of all, I don't even know what death is. It would seem to me that if it's "Life" after death, would it really be death or just a rebirth? I believe that if we awaken while in human form we move onto what Reality actually is. If not we get a first class ticket back to try it again.

Q: Do you have a telepathic link with anyone?
A: I'm sure I do. I just have not yet been able to tap into that side of me.

Q: What would be your message to all of humanity?
A: No matter what you're faced with ask yourself one question. What difference does it "really" make?

Q: What are your views on Reincarnation?
A: Like I said, if we don't awaken we get to reincarnate to try again.

Q: Do You enjoy being You?
A: My human form? No, not really. Deep down I know that there is a better place for me to be. A place where my spirit will be free. And that side of me I appreciate very deeply. However, I can do what I need to do in this life to get to where I really want to be.

Q: If you could visit any place in the world or Universe - where would it be and why?
A: If I could go anywhere in the Universe it would be approximately 666 light years away from this hell hole.

Q: Do you do any form of meditation or yoga, or what do you do to relax?
I try meditation, but it's a difficult task for me. I am confident that with a bit of work I'll get it one day.

Q: What would you like to see more of in the world?
A: Truth. Whether it's illusion or not. I'd like to see more truth being told.

Q: Are You in love?
A: In love with what? I ask that question because I'm not really sure what that word means in the first place.

Q: What will You be remembered for?
A: I will be remembered for the many, many questions that I ask. But does it really matter?

Q: Jump in a time machine and see yourself in seven years' time - Where are you and what are you doing?
A: I'm living in a place surrounded by mountains. I'm writing books, learning, and teaching others. Seven years from now, just remember that my door is always open.

Q: What or who were you in a past life?
A: Does it really matter? Obviously I didn't awaken otherwise I wouldn't be here now.

Q: Finish the sentence, God is...?
A: .....probably not what you, I, or anyone else think or could ever imagine.

Q: Where is Home?
A: Beyond the limitations of the human form.

Q: If You could be a colour - what would You be?
A: Black. Yes, I know that black is an absence of color, but that is my final answer.

Q: What brings You Peace?
A: The feeling that this will be my last stay at the Earth Inn.

Q: If the people of Earth could send one message to our intergalactic neighbours, what would or should it be?
A: Stay at least 666 light years away from this place!! But first tell me how to get to where you are.

Q: What is your most recurring dream?
A: Every day I wake up, and I'm still here.

Q: If you could officially change your name to anything - what would it be?

Q: What was your role in Atlantis?
A: Does it really matter?

Q: If you could meet the 1999 version of yourself - what advice would you give?
A: Do not join the military. Let her go. Don't get married. Live as if every day were the last. Screw what everyone else thinks. You are worth something. Pain does eventually subside. It dosen't really matter!!

Just in case you were wondering, this was not a typo.

Your answers are truly mind-expanding, inspiring & honest. I agree with you, that the answers to those questions are transient and will change depending on where on the journey 'ONE' is... They will reflect only the view of wherever it is You are at any given moment - remembering too, that the 'view' is only & always...a reflection of You - and vice versa.

Thank You. Just for Being. Whether you're a figment of your own imagination, or of mine, or of Ours...what matters is that You Are ('seeming' matter)...and that in this anything-goes Illusion, You/Me/We/Them/I AM (all terms interchangeable) have, in a sense, dreamt 'you' up in order (& chaos!) to express yOUR Self with all the YOUniqueness, honesty, and integrity that ONE can muster...'through' you.

Your various answers inspired me; made me smile, laugh & wonder; they challenged me; moved me; & energised me... One of your answers (to the "See Yourself In 7 Years' Time" question) even made my eyes mist over!

I don't have the 'answers' either my friend - as my answers are only a reflection of where I AM at that particular illusory point in illusory time. You're so right in saying that these answers defines one not. They're like 'snapshots' in a way - hardly a complete picture of our infinite multidimensionality (nothing 'in particular' ever is!). But (and acting almost like a barometer) they serve as a great & profound way of getting to understand & know what goes through another one's mind (or, another mind of The One). Alternatively, they act as a good tool to get to know One's Self - whichever way you look at it!

Nothing's set in stone - not even it's all in a state of vibrating flux. All is in an illusion of constant change whilst remaining the same...a paradox of cosmic proportions!

But through the illusion of various frequencies, I guess we wouldn't know & understand ONEness (if we didn't have separation to compare it with).

I don't know what it is I AM trying to say right now, I'm just enjoying 'mulling' away. I guess, I'm trying to say, that I agree with you whole-heartedly when you state that, as profound and as revealing as these answers are - they also do not matter, and are certainly nothing to become overly 'attached' or over-identified with.

They just are.

As You are. And I AM.

A very life-like yet illusory snapshot of an illusory moment in illusory time.

Some 'snapshots' can evoke a sense of warmth & peace...others, of confusion & bittersweetness.

Yours has brought me the former; closer to The One Being All; nearer to A Parallel Self.

Namaste & Thank You for the view...of the YOUniverse...through yOUR eyes.

A Fellow Oneironaut : I AM.

ps : Sweet Lucid Dream my friend.

i'm just graduating high school in 2005 and you are this nameless, faceless, distant phenomenon of a human being to me. i don't know, i liked that answer. i just wish i had met you sooner.
