Challenges of Life

2 brains

In the wrangling tangle of life in the wilderness, for every creature or organism that exists, life presents daunting challenges. For many species, these challenges are primarily about survival, finding food, safe haven to rest, opportunities to find a mate, and protecting their young in order to ensure the next generation a fighting chance. Even in the modern world, for many of us, those challenges are often the same ones, even though we have many advantages currently over the rest of the organisms with whom we share the planet.

If, indeed, all of my efforts to illuminate the core matter of our subjective experience of the world, ultimately come to nothing of particular note to the world at large, I still feel an urgency to attend to the work, and shall continue.

Thanks to all of the many wonderful visitors and readers here for your support and encouragement over the past year, and I look forward to 2015 and sharing in the bounty of the human spirit that each of you has to offer.

Warmest regards and best wishes…..John H.

About jjhiii24
Way back in 1973, as a young man embarking on the journey of a lifetime, I experienced what Carl Jung described as “the eruption of unconscious contents,” which compelled me to seek the path I continue to pursue to this day. The path of discovery has led me through an astonishingly diverse range of explorations in philosophy, science, and religion, as well as the many compelling ideas in the literature and scriptures of the cultures of the world. There is, in my view, a compelling thread made up of components of each, that runs through the fabric of life. The nature and study of human consciousness has been a compelling subject for me for more than twenty years. I have spent a great deal of my time and energies trying to come to terms with my own very particular “inner experience” of life, and to somehow understand how the events and flow of my temporal life have directly been influenced by the workings within. Sharing what I have come to understand about my own “Inner Evolution,” has tasked my intellect and communications skills in a big way. I am only just beginning to feel confident enough in the results of my study and contemplation to express the many various aspects of what I have uncovered within myself. I am hopeful that my own subjective and personal experience of my own “human spirit” will resonate with others, and encourage them to explore their own.

      I suppose it is a bit more interesting to live in a wrangling tangle. Your own life has much wrangling and tangling in it, and while I don’t think tangling with you would be such a good idea, wrangling might be a hoot.

      Thanks for sharing such a thought-provoking comment!……John H.
