I like to imagine a tiny fish living in his tiny rock pool. He cannot see what lies above the surface of the water, because when he looks there, he sees only his own reflection. His universe is closed. Now, if you submerge three or four fingers into the pool, what do you suppose the fish will see? – alien objects invading his universe, several of them. If he were a thinking fish he would assume, logically, that three or four individual worm-like monsters had invaded his world. How could he know that he was not really looking at three or four wormy things, but in reality, one human hand simply stirring his pool.
When we observe extra dimensional phenomena, they source from beyond our human experiential and cognitive fields. We can only describe our experiences according to the limits imposed upon us by our languages and our programming. During this earthly sojourning, these abilities are rendered inadequate for an ‘eagle’s eye’ view of reality. The price of incarnation
In an unlimited universe, we share material limitations along with all other living things
Understanding this, lets intend now to become kinder to ourselves, and then perhaps it will follow that we should become kinder to each other.
With sincere thanks and appreciation to all follows and givers of likes. I have been too poorly to do much writing of late, and apart for some daily tweeting, I haven’t spent as much time online as I would like. I hope this will improve as time goes on. For now, please enjoy the artwork, and keep on creating those wonderful WordPress reads.
Namaste and peace from Amras.

Beautiful 🙂 It reminds me of Einstein 🙂 He said we only use 10 percent of our brain, So we are limited in our abilities of our mind. If we could use more than 10 percent we emerge and become pure energy 🙂 Meditation thank God takes us beyond our thresholds. beautiful Artwork -Namaste
Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I agree with you that meditation takes us beyond those thresholds. Thanks again.
