Our Daily “En-lighten-ments” and Peek-a-Boo: The Koans of Everyman Which Reveal Our True Nature as Bliss and the Nature of Creation as Play

The Cosmic Giggle: Why Humans Are Not Superior to Nature in Intellect or Language, Yet Still Made in Love’s Image
Our Supposed “Superior Intellect” and Language
Our supposed superior intellect is often named as what makes us different and what makes us “in the image of God.”
Well, this won’t go over very big with the academics but our words don’t make us superior…they make us inferior…to all the other species…who just know, without having to struggle with symbols that are easily misinterpreted.
The language of the planetmates is not language; so much as it is mind-sharing. And all that needs to can be conveyed in a precise look…sometimes a smell…or just a howl…across the forest. You think the information contained in such things could be only rudimentary…hardly!
Let’s say that with our language we’re like typewriters…laboriously trying to make ourselves understood to each other…and ourselves…. Well, what we lost with our separation from Nature and ego—which came with our separation—is the kind of abilities that, as analogy, we see in computers.
Think of the size of a computer chip. It’s tiny…the size of a penny. Now consider the amount of information it can convey, process, et cetera….wow! Remember, it is small!
Further, remember that each part of Nature is God having the fun of manifesting Him- Herself in that form, and simultaneously in all others…. And since these nonhuman beings are not split off from the All That Is like we are they are still aware of their identity with Divinity. They are as aware of their true nature as when we go to a movie and still realize that what we see is not real and that our real existence is elsewhere….
So, all of Nature, except for our sorry asses, have the sense of watching a drama, but none of it is all that scary. They even dig the scary parts as a thrill, just the way you might enjoy a horror flick.
So, of course, they have, without trying, the knowledge that needs communicating, whenever. And that knowledge they know, so it’s not all that common that a need to communicate it even arises.
Language Is Our Attempt to Remember What We’ve Lost
It is only our separation from All That Is and our delusion of being separated from each other that brings up a need for a language. Language is our attempt to remember what we’ve lost and to connect back with each other, since we’ve forgotten we are each “other me’s.” Language is our act out of the loss we feel inside from having separated ourselves out as individual egos. But it is a mostly a futile attempt, as act outs tend to be, for it directs us away from the direct knowing of our unity with each other which is discovered in feeling, which is discovered within. And when caught up in words, most folks most of the time are distracted from feeling their unity with each other, let alone All That Is.
How We Are “in God’s Image” – Our Daily “En-lighten-ments”
So it is not in our big brains, supposed intelligence, or language that we are different from the rest of Nature and “made in God’s image,” so to speak. You’re not going to believe the one and only way we are like God. And it’s a damn fine thing there is something. Because after all the rest of your ego being busted, you’re glad you do have a special link with that source of Love.
Let’s put it this way, God felt so much compassion for the ways we humans managed to fuck up and to stray from Nature that He gave us the most ordinary everyday reminder of our true Nature as unity and of the real nature of It All that we’d forgotten. In us, humans, God reflects the essence of His manifesting Himself as Creation and the delight that comes with such play. Creation is God’s leela, or play…and a play. And it requires disintegration into parts, which—essentially alike, but with this fact forgotten—can interact in dynamic, infinite, and wondrous ways. Like the Universe expanding and becoming ever more complex and differentiated, God manifests. The further from original unity is this expansion, the greater is the forgetfulness, the greater is the separation from All Else and each other.
The Cosmic Giggle
But there are constant reminders of our original and essential unity and of our nature as God… daily “enlightenments” … literally… daily epiphanies if you will.
They are like the koans of every man which reveal our true Nature as Bliss.
When God wants to show us the Nature of Creation as play—which all the rest of Creation and all planetmates know intuitively—and how therefore there is never anything to be afraid of, and that fear is an imaginary creation of ours, the same as and going along with our separation….
Well, let’s put it this way, He not only inspired the billions of human mothers to play the peek-a-boo game with their children…y’know, Mom’s not there, the baby has this imaginary, horrifying fear that Mom is gone, disappeared, never to return.
Then suddenly her face appears from nowhere. How does the baby feel and react, react to it? Well, now the baby’s downright gleeful…& beside her- or himself, can’t even contain her or his joy, claps its hands, laughs, and giggles…. And, yes, I’m getting to it.
The way we are made “in God’s image” and reminded of our true Nature as Bliss and our essential Unity….
It’s our laughter….
It is our laughter.
