Epilogue 14 Existence Is Fun
Epilogue, Part Fourteen – Four Falls from Grace … And Back Again: Becoming Human Is Love’s Supreme Act of Recklessness, and Death to Everyone … Makes It Fun
Infinite Poignancy and God Would Not Want a King Midas Curse: Funny God, Fourteenth and Final Part — Existence Is Fun
Infinity of Experience ~ Infinite God
And in an infinity of experience…. Why can’t there be an infinity of experience? Don’t you see? For when does God stop growing? Why does there ever have to be an end? Why does there have to be an end to the variety and possibilities of experiencing, the possibilities of existing, of Existence!
Why does there ever have to be an end?
[“…end for human life…”]
No, I’m saying when does God stop growing? Cause I’m saying that God is all knowledge.
But He’s infinitely experiencing, and He has for all time. So, with an infinity of experiences, there’s always going to be newness…. Newness, interest, fascination, poignancy … magnificence. The magnificence of the All That Is.
And yet, He’s been doing it for all time. So how fascinating is that? How fantastic?
God Would Not Want a King Midas Curse.
So, it’s like the only way I could ever imagine that kind of sameness being exciting…. Well, think about it. Here’s the only way:
Try to think of that kind of sameness being interesting, let alone exciting. For example, oh you’ve had so many experiences and never run out of them… Would that make it interesting? No. Then there’d be sameness, for they would be all the same, and one day would be like the other and it would be kind of like… what was it? Oh, King Midas who had the golden touch. Remember? King Midas got everything he wanted, everything was perfect. But he couldn’t enjoy any of it, because it was just all the same. Perfection makes everything perfectly boring.
No Hash for You!
You know, I don’t know if God makes hashish brownies for everybody. I mean, I don’t know.
But I doubt it. Because, knowing God, it’s all about infinite Experience. So, why wouldn’t He try that? Why wouldn’t He make brownies for me and experience that? Who wouldn’t? And for everyone else it would be something else entirely, but something just as unexpected and fantastic. Because that’s another thing: We are God, so aren’t we all curious to know. And don’t we really only get our knowing, really, through experience? And with different experiences, more knowing?
So it is so beautiful I can barely contain it. I can hardly even imagine that there is an infinite number of poignant dramas…that there are infinite numbers of horrors and heroines and tragic figures and heroic figures and demonic and evil people … and there’s all of the characters beyond imagining; and they’re all God. And this is the way in which God continues not just experiencing Himself, but experiences Himself as multiple. You see?
God Has Fun.
So, it’s sort of like that example of being in a play. We were saying how life is like being on stage acting in a drama. We are all God, each acting our part, but, being human, forgetting who we are and fully identifying with our characters. Only the part of ourselves who is God, well He knows He’s God still. He knows He’s God but He’s playing all these parts. And He has fun.
[“Yeah, he has fun, because His supreme act of Love is the fact that He allows us totally to forget, so He can really be into the experience…”]
God’s Supreme Act … of Recklessness
That’s not a supreme act of Love, that’s a supreme act of just pure recklessness on His part!
But no, it’s just like, well there is no faith involved for God. None needed. For faith is not necessary when there is knowledge. And God has Total Knowledge. He knows without doubt that there can be no harm. Never, in all of Experience can there be harm for nothing can stop being. There is only change, transformation.
So for God becoming human, it is kind of like bungee jumping off that bridge. You are attached by the cord and it is impossible for there to be any harm. Except that in throwing oneself into being a human, as soon as you leave the bridge, you get amnesia. Theeeeen what happens?
Four Falls From Grace … And Back Again
But God knows that is going to happen. God knows that in the process of coming to Earth, He is going to go through four falls from grace, until He’s gonna end up to be as dumb as a dipstick.
You know? And then He’s going to have to go back again to realizing He is Divine from being dumb as a dipstick. But the process of it involves all the most wonderful things, experiences. These are experiences more wonderful than animals can experience, because it’s all done in total forgetfulness that it is not real and that everything is just fine even when it doesn’t seem to be.
So ultimately, peek-a-boo: It’s all been magnificent.
Death to Everyone — Makes It Fun.
What does Will Oldham say? He says, “Death to everyone, is gonna come.… It makes hosing … much more fun.”
It’s because of the fear, ultimately that fear of death, that we are most fully alive. There is no need for that fear actually, but it is that which provides the edge, the spice…the beauty, poignancy to life. It is like the edge that salt provides to food to bring out its multiple flavors, which were there but were dull and not fully manifest. It is this fear that makes life fun, and so much more perfect in our forgetting for a time that it is just a game we are playing for our own, as God, amusement and the manifesting of beauty in existence.
An Edge of Pleasure. Multiple Flavors.
It’s because of that fear that there is an edge of pleasure to life as well…….. Because through pleasure we escape even the possibility, the threat, of remembering, which multiplies even more the “flavors” (experiences) of existence. Regardless of the fact that pleasure extends our time in forgetfulness—for it is only pain that wakes us up to our Divinity and brings us home again—for the amount of time it takes to remember our nature as divinity is totally irrelevant. It does not matter. It is poignantly perfect and beautiful any way it goes, ultimately.
Life, Experience, That Which Is is all perfect in its seeming imperfection. It is fantastic and wonderful. Ultimately, as Sathya Sai Baba said, All of Reality is God’s divine leela, that is, play. So, most important of all, Existence is fun.
