Concerning Spoons

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
I love this Matrix Quote. It really encapsulates what MJ has been feeling recently. Everything is relative to our Reality (Big R) and realities (little r). When we realise that emotion is something that we create in our conscience, it helps us understand it. There is no spoon - it all exists in our minds. When you master this, please let me know.
Second Matrix Quote which I love
Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but, you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.
Neo: What vase? [Neo turns to look for a vase, and as he does, he knocks over a vase of flowers, which shatters on the floor]
Oracle: That vase.
Neo: I'm sorry...
Oracle: I said don't worry about it. I'll get one of my kids to fix it.
Neo: How did you know?
Oracle: Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said
This quote explains Taqdeer (predestination so well)

Emotions are our cheshire cats and remind us that our Creation includes the best and the lowest (S. Teen). A cool corollary to the R/r thing is that each of us see our own unique, special yet different pattern in the clouds.

Sometimes Nooj says things I don't get. This is one of those times :D

waseem the wise, i say you pass the crown onward; no upward rather :P

nooj the wiseSt has spoken!
i love that line regards constructing reality..
..."each of us see our own unique, special yet different pattern in the clouds".

nooj, i should get u as a guest speaker in my course on contemporary identities..:)

Nooj said...

lol waseem and shaf i speak lots of nonsense. and i leave missing links for you to interpret which gets me into trouble but affords me cheap laughs too.

aww shaf i'm totally chuffed but of course it's your interpretation that makes the words beautiful. your course sounds really interesting maybe you should start doing workshops on identity

do you guys really think it can ever be mastered? this came up in a psychometric theory conversation yesterday where, in my opinion, Allah doesn't give us tests to pass or fail. That would be simplistic because He already knows our makeup and stuff. Instead he constantly gives us opportunities for awareness. And since we're constantly becoming aware, we can never master it??
