A CHAPTER ON SOUND
1 Listen for the sound of silence.
2 The Omnist can listen so intently on silence that they begin to get lost in it.
3 It is oblivion that is a part of Nothing, a part of the blankness that resides in each garden.
4 The Omnist appreciates this as they appreciate all sounds.
5 Without the silence there could be no sound of our own Living.
6 Without the endlessness of silence there could be no sound, so it is appreciated by the Omnist.
7 Not for the Omnist to be faithful, unless the Omnist chooses a faith to pray or meditate to. But, for the Omnist to understand hopefulness in a well balanced world.
8 The cacophony of noises around us reminds us that there is conflict.
9 If the conflict did not exist then there could be no hope for peace.
10 The tumultuous times that we live through are experienced by all. So through sound we are one in the sense that we can relate to hearing the symphony of it all.
11 One noise amplifying itself off of the things around them and then mixing in with the sound of other noises.
12 Would the noises be there if it wasn’t for the capabilities of the Living to hear them?
13 Again, the age old question, if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
14 Some Living hear things differently, at times you could find yourself listening so intently to another Living speak, yet, the words may not even get through to you in the way that you should have understood them.
15 You still heard them, but they disappear, perhaps you are to acknowledge them later and give yourself an “oh, that is what they said” remark.
16 It is an internal conflict of your own sense of sound.
17 As if you wanted to listen, but deep down in the distances within you there was something else that you were actually listening to.
18 We all do it as Living, it happens, is it a flaw? That answer would depend on another Livings point of view.
19 That does not make them right, you yourself know that you wanted to take the words in. But, there was something else telling you that there was likely something more going on around you at the time, that was seemingly more important than the words coming out of the other Livings mouth. Easily distracted our ears become when the diligent silence of our thoughts interrupt spoken word.
1 The sense of sound works with our other senses in a manner of unification.
2 What we hear and take in is processed so quickly, that sometimes our instincts kick in and tell us to cover our heads when we hear a harmful noise. Or, to duck and cover when another Living yells, “watch out!”
3 Certain sounds please us in many ways.
4 To some it is the beautiful music composed by our favorite band. The singer and their voice that touches our gardens so deeply inside. Perhaps the singer is attractive and that ignites our other senses after we are drawn in by the sound of the voice.
5 Some are drawn to the sound of electricity vibrating overhead as they pass underneath high powered electrical lines.
6 Perhaps they feel the currents in ways that others can’t.
7 But the other Living walking with them may feel something else outside of the current.
8 The wildlife in the quiet area may be deterred by the sound of the electrical current buzzing above and/or the sound may act as some sort of a barrier, that the animals can actually see and understand as something that gives them boundaries.
9 There are numerous ways to understand sound and there are numerous undiscovered ways that sound still has yet to be identified.
10 Some may see sound. It’s not impossible, just ask those that do, they see sound waves in color and witness it’s motions as it vibrates in waves througb their mindscape.
1 Some Living hear things that others can’t, perhaps it is voices in their minds or the sound of a cymbal crashing in their heads. Certain animals hear things in ways that only few of us humans can even begin to accept as true, while a small fraction of us actually can see it and have no way to prove it other than with our word.
2 The voices of long gone friends and lovers that rattle on in memory fades away across the expanse of vibration that draws a line through ones own mind.
3 Other Living may be unable to hear these things. Yet, when it is described, the one claiming to hear such things is given some kind of a label.
4 Thus, scaring them into a place where no more understanding can be learned about how they are hearing such noises.
5 It is merely kept to them and lost to the rest of the world.
6 The understanding that majority presses onto this, is that there is something that needs to be fixed about this Living. Rather than allowing that Living to embrace what it is deep within their minds that brings about these (matters of fact to them). Noises that are impossible for another Living to hear.
1 To those who cannot hear, it is difficult for those of us who can hear to relate to you. The same rules apply to the loss of other senses, as well.
2 The world experienced by those with a loss of senses is a mysterious one indeed; those that live that life stand as a shining example of Living. To remind other Living that things are not always as bad as one thinks they could be.
3 The obstacles that are to be overcome by such a loss of sense should be viewed as nothing short of astounding.
4 It points to the indomitable will to survive, live and be a part of life in general and is just one amazing aspect of will. It is something that we should try to remember and apply to a great deal of other aspects of life, in relative terms.
5 The loss of things such as senses like the loss of the ability to hear, to take in something that others take for granted, the gift of sound, and to keep going despite the troubles.
A CHAPTER ON SIGHT
1 Think to yourself of the stimulating pleasures that sight grants you.
2 The view of a beautiful horizon, the sight of open fields. The kind of open fields in which their beauty may only make sense, to you.
3 The sight of a magnanimous animal that, upon seeing it, takes your breath away and makes you think twice about being what it is you are.
4 The sight of upheaval in the things around you and the sight of atrocities being committed. Your sight alone is not the only power to be able to take it down.
5 One of the senses that are innate to most, sight is the benefit of being able to see the things directly around you.
6 It is something that the majority of Living have in common in this world.
7 There are numerous different types of sight to be analyzed, and most of them are attainable through technology. Although, some sight is derived from within.
8 Internal sight, about who you are as a Living and what it is you are capable of.
9 Once you see who it is you are then you are capable of relating to those who have looked deep within the confines of their own minds.
10 You see the tree dance on the air in ways that others do not, and they see it in such a way that you are unable to comprehend.
11 You feel the same air that is moving the tree and if you hold on long enough you can feel something much more as the air passes between the branches and makes the leaves dance.
12 Sight is a feeling as much as it is a sense. Combined with the other senses it gives a more powerful meaning to being a part of Living and these things are obvious, more often than not though, are taken very much for granted.
1 Sight is a sense for us to use to identify with our surroundings. To visualize things that are tangible and abstract. Also, for seeing inside of another Living. Seeing into the garden of another Living, seeing into another’s garden and witness as it meshes into your own.
2 Seeing beyond the internal confines of one’s outer vision and looking internally into one’s own mind when they sit down and focus deeply.
3 Focusing on seeing into the questions from our outside world and to be able to grasp the answers we hold deep within us. So that we may be able to identify with the things that come from our surroundings.
4 We all have them, inside worlds, though many are afraid to discuss them for fear of sounding as though they might be characterized as insane.
5 Perhaps, it is time to move past locking that vision away, and to stop passing judgments because it is something that much of society has yet to accept. That if it cannot be measured than it does not exist and is not true, is a mentality that keeps us blinded by a rationale of thought that may be critical and over-bearing. That being TOLD what to do by those who may not fully see the same way as others is a vision of the past and it is time for us to look into the future.
6 So long as ones own garden is not poisoned, then perhaps it is best to leave another to tend to theirs after knowing that there is nothing there for you to fertilize your garden with.
7 Is it worth it then to lop off another’s head in the name of? It is far better to just move on for the sake of your garden.
8 Is it worth it to destroy or alter the history of our world, because it defies the power of those whom think they have it, that are now running rampant through all of our cultures? It is better to allow history to be recognized for what it is and keep a line of what it is in tact, rather than alter or destroy it for the benefit of those whom think they rule.
9 Is it worth it to throw away something that one may find beautiful, because to another it is merely temptation: what is good for one garden, may not be good for another’s but this does not make one garden bad and the other good.
10 Many of the mistakes of our past has been due to the lack of accepting the inner sight that we all possess. Is that not worth understanding and keeping in mind that “those who do not remember their past will be doomed to repeat it”, that is a good saying that applies very well to a great number of things.
11 But not all of what we see should be taken in as reality. If you only see it that way then by all means, continue to argue scripture with scripture, just keep it to yourselves and argue at whatever place of worship is best for you. Because those trying to reach out for something better do not care to see such things.
12 Some Living out there happen to see beyond that. Only to be labeled as something that makes them feel awful by those who only want to see the past as our only future, and carry on outdated ways of treating people.
13 Not to say there is not a God, but perhaps it is not your God that defines one truth, nor any one god that defines truth, for that matter. A god that if we claim to be able to see, then we are touched by whatever great evil has kept that religion in business. That’s what the fear of maleficent practices has taught us, to see what we’re told, instead of learning to see for ourselves.
