View Full Version : You are a cosmic being!

"When you are in your room, you are physically isolated within its
four walls, set apart from the world. But by means of thought you
can make a habit of going beyond the limits of your room and
expanding into an ever greater space: into your house, into the
town your house belongs to... Then, realize that your town
belongs to a region, the region to a country, the country to a
continent, and the continent to the earth. As for the earth, it
is one of the planets that belongs to the solar system. The
solar system in turn belongs to a galaxy, and this galaxy is a
small part of the cosmos. How amazing, then, that you are alone
in your room and at the same time out in the cosmos! Since you
are a cosmic being, why do you always limit yourself, why not
open your eyes and tell yourself that you have cosmic work to
do? To that end you need only change your way of thinking and
become conscious of the fact that, as an inhabitant of the
universe, you are one with it."

Omraam MikhaŰl A´vanhov

hello - are you a first year philosophy student by any chance? I like your enthusiasm and what you have to say. However, it would be prudent for you to expand further on this thesis or risk sounding as if you are attempting to sell another religion. How about giving us a decent theory of consciousncess. Are we really cosmic beings or mere brains in vats?

apologies for any spelling errors - completely bushed today - want to sleep but enjoying this site and staying awake is playing havoc with my brains.
