Total Recall

Try to remember. You are a vortex of fluidic light that has temporarily taken on the form of a human being, suffering amnesia about your true origins. And why did you do that? Because it was the best way to forge the identity that would make you such an elemental force in our 14-billion-year campaign to bring heaven all the way down to earth.

You're an immortal freedom fighter who longs to liberate all sentient creatures from their suffering. You're a fun-loving messiah who devoutly wants to help all of your fellow messiahs claim the ecstatic awareness that is their birthright.

I'm not speaking metaphorically here. You are a mutant deity in disguise--not a Buddha or a Christ exactly, but of same lineage and conjured from the same fire. You have been around since the beginning of time and will be here after the end. Every day and in every way, you are getting better at playing the preposterously amusing master game we all dreamed up together before the Big Bang bloomed.

Line in the Sand

"At some point you realize that you have done too much for someone or something, that the only next possible step to do is stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It's not like you are giving up, and it's not like you shouldn't try. It's just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be."
