Where Are The New Posts?

Sorry, I’ve been writing so much and posting so many other places that I’ve been neglecting my own site. If you want to see what’s recent, you may friend me on Facebook and I’ll add you to my Space Monkey group! Then you’re GUARANTEED two or three fresh monkey musings a day!! Tempting, right? (He says sarcastically.)

What If

What if you didn’t belong to you?


What if your every thought

were placed into your mind

by some higher power?

What if you mistook

this life to be yours,
when in actuality,

you weren’t alive at all,
and all these “things”
that seem to be
flowing through you
were simply part
of the divine structure
that makes you seem
“real” to your “self?”

What if you were
just a figment of

some higher power’s
imagination?

One of a billion trillion aspects.

Just a computational formula.

A theoretical, like time and space.

A simulation.

What if artificial intelligence
ALWAYS existed and you are that?

We are Space Monkey.

If you believe . . .

If you believe
that you are happy,
then you are happy.

If you believe
that you are healthy,
then you are healthy.

If you believe
that you are human,
then you are human.

If you believe
that you are blessed,
then you are blessed.

If you believe
that you are divine,
then you are divine.

If you believe
that you are eternal,
then you are eternal.

If you believe
that you can believe,
then you can believe.

What you believe
is what you are.

What you don’t believe
is what you are not.

You have both.

And if you believe
you get to choose,
you get to choose.

Yes, it is self-serving. But he world will not become happy until you are.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness
is not about
absolving another
of indiscretion
but rather
the lifting of
all judgement.

In this manner,
you are not healing
those you perceive
as transgressors,
but rather and also
your own heart
for harboring ill will.

You see,
the thought
of transgression
can be more harmful
than the transgression itself.

Live in the grace of forgiveness.

Forgive
not only for those
you perceive as others,
but PRIMARILY
to heal your self.

We are Space Monkey.

Without Judgement

I am not
smarter than you,
better than you,
or luckier than you.

I am merely
without judgement.

Likewise, I am not
dumber than you,
poorer than you,
or destined to fail.

There is no failure.
I am without judgement.

The soul’s temporary clothes

The self is simply the soul’s temporary clothes. You can think that you look cool, or dorky, or whatever, but eventually you are going to be naked again, and you’ll say to yourself “what was I wearing those silly clothes for?”

“See(m)ing Things”

The world
coming through
your living room
is not touching you
the living room
coming through
your eyes
is not touching you
the eyes
coming through
your brain
are not touching you
the thoughts
coming through
your mind
are not touching you.

Why do
you believe
that these
seeming things
affect you?

Why do you
not allow
that perhaps
this is
all imagined
and that
you are someplace
else entirely?

You believe
that to think otherwise
is denial.

In actuality,
denial is the ruling out
of what is obvious.

Have ANY of these
seeming things
touched you physically?

If so,
how can you
even be sure
what that means?

You may allow
that these seeming things
are touching SOMEONE,
but are they touching you?

You are the perception
of seeming things,
no more, no less.

If these seeming things
HAVE in reality touched you,
then you are someone else entirely,
and this message is not for you.

May you find peace
with your seeming things.

You are not the world.
You are not your home.
You are not your eyes,
body, brain or even mind.

These are not things,
but seeming things.

You may either
allow the possibility
or continue your
closed-minded experience.

Or both.

We are seemingly Space Monkey.

I of the needle

We are just threading
the I of the needle,
seemingly what we are
to have this
very specific experience,
which is no better
and no worse
than any OTHER experience
we could be having.
