ASK YOURSELF: "What Brings You Here"

I can't believe it's alread almost the end of January. Where the hell does time go? Each day goes faster than the last. I sometimes sit and think about how long its been since..........I got my drivers liscence, I've been out of high school, I originally joined the military, etc. It is really crazy when you sit down and look at it like this. And what makes it even more interesting is the fact that most of the past seems like it never was in the first place. Think about what a memory is. Recalling a past experience. Events happen so quick that by the time they register it's already a memory. Which makes one wonder, did it happen in the first place? There are a lot of things that can create a memory, any one of the five senses to be exact. So when we experience the recalling of the past these sensations come back to us as if it's in the now. What I am basically trying to say is that memories are creations of the mind.

Now to speak a second on the past, it is what determines the now, for most of us anyway. We are who we are today because of such and such past experience. Or we do this or that because of some other past experience. Is the changing of our physical body and surroundings as easy as one realization: Every instant is a new creation of the mind. And with every new instant can we manipulate our mind to create any "now" that we so desire? What level of enlightenment would one have to obtain prior to being capable of this kind of mind control? People say all the time that "you can do anything you put your mind to". How true is this statement? And, how psychicaly deep does this run?

I know that most of the time I ask more questions than I know what to do with. But these are questions that I've been pondering a lot lately. I can tell you one thing. Sitting with the questions in my head is pointless. I wouldn't have these questions if I alreay had the answers. So, I look to you. Whoever you may be. Everyone out there that I come into contact with is another segment of my mind, and another aspect of me. I have confidence that the individuals that are meant to answer these questions, whether by this medium or another, will be lead to me. I don't exactly believe in fate or anything like that. But I do believe that if I ask these questions long enough, they will evenutally get answered. Things always seem to work out that way. So, if you've been brought to this post do what you must. If all you have are more questions, then go for it. I'm in learning mode at the current time and recognizing this part of the cycle I know I had better dive into it head first. That, however, is another story. So if you've come this far, you're probably in the right place. Answers are near.

if each person we come in contact with has been brought to us by some random yet interconnected act then what happens when the time comes for that person to go? does that mean she did not exist? cause i'm real. and what if she won't let you go? i figure that is for her to work out on her own, but i can't help but ponder... these connections, these people we come across through the spans of our little lives-- there's gotta be at least one that has more depth then just allowing it to fade away. everyone comes to us for a reason, perhaps not fate but it is our job to figure out why they came and what we can learn from them. i'm not good with letting go. i'm not good with "doing anything you put your mind to." why?

i know this is an old post... just got me thinking.
