The Self Outgrows the Flesh

In many ways, we're in Kindergarten in terms of dualistic, linear reality manufacturing.  Basically, we're using stick figures and thick crayons to portray the vastness and delightful complexity of All That Is.

There's so much more out there, but first we need to get a grip on this basic level of manifestation and own the implications of our actions before we're ready to graduate and move on.  In the meantime, life's moments really are about the subjective experience of our reality and to see the underlying love, vitality and exuberance in everything around us.

It's important for Kindergarten to function that we graduate and move on.  It's also important for us to put down our crayons and explore the universe. 

So much for Ray Kurzweil and his attempts to "hack" the body to achieve immortality in flesh ... that's a bit like having an unlimited supply of crayons in Kindergarten!

"Dying is a biological necessity, not only for the individual, but to insure the continued vitality of the species.  Dying is a spiritual and psychological necessity, for after a while the exuberant, ever-renewed energies of the spirit can no longer be translated into flesh.
"Inherently, each individual knows that he or she must die physically in order to survive spiritually and psychically.  The self outgrows the flesh."
(The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 801)
