There are no geniuses, but you can have a genius. In ancient Rome, the genius (plural in Latin genii) was the guiding spirit or tutelary deity of a person, family, or place. Because the achievements of exceptional individuals seemed to indicate the presence of a particularly powerful "genius"

Everyone on this Earth is particularly special because everyone has the potential to channel the great knowledge that exists around us.

Everything is channeled, you either tune in or you don't.

To call yourself something so great is to cave the universe in on your soul. It is too much, it breaks down the mind. We can see it around us. Celebrities are treated like gods and if they believe it for a moment and than realize their manufactured identity, what do they do? They end up shaving their heads, they end up in rehab, they revert into themselves and/or die young if they cannot distinguish between themselves and what has been manufactured.
So, what about these 'new' children? What of the pressure behind the labels we give to their existence? Can this do harm before they have done anything at all with the satisfaction of having done something by merely existing as they are?
All children have that potential.
Is the constant pressure and stroking of the ego in this culture snuffing out improvement?
...
I heard a story from a Muslim about compliments, if someone were to tell him how amazing he was for what he has accomplished in the world he would respond "Thank you.. but please understand, these compliments do not help me improve. My ego grows, my boastfulness. The ego that is satisfied with the now, but the present becomes the past and I want to move forward."

Everything is channeled, you either tune in or you don't.

We are channelers.
We are instruments in a great symphony, so we must tune into ourselves first, and then tune into each other and listen to the universe. If one instrument is out of tune in an orchestra, what does the symphony sound like? This is why we must help each other.
Venus, the Bringer of Peace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EE6_PacC...25F7F6E930
from Gustav Holst's Planet Suite Op. 32 (1914 - 1916)
I want what you have, please. I like Holst's Planets. So strange: just thought about this suite this very morning. Just popped up.

I agree with the channeling bit. people make themselves vessles to tune in and resonate with what it is theyre trying to locate in themselves and communicate.
oh my, I am just about to write something about 'compliments'. I think I shall use this quoteSmile cheers.
as for me, I watched this excellent documentary about Art with Mathew Collins [possibly my favorite human being on the planet]; he was interviewing an artist who painted rather pointless paintings in my humble opinion, but the artiest said something amazing. Something like, 'people look at my work and say "oh that's great, amazing, wonderful" but I don't want to hear that, I want them to fall to the floor and weep."
I want them to fall to the floor and weep."


that is the right attitude. ,-))

I see that right now, haha

There are no geniuses, but you can have a genius.

but from time to time I meet people who seem to be half gods. (like in ancient Greek)
or the Nephilim.

You can pick up on things from all around you, and you can dig stuff out of yourself. But some people have as much potential to do that as frogs or rabbits.

What improvement do you expect?

I have a philosophy of demons. There's no label or compliment that these demons won't tear down or use against me in a second. You let yourself be possessed for certain reasons, and you spend the rest of the time fighting these things off. These celebrities you mention don't know the difference most of the time. It's making conscious of what's going on, being conscious isn't enough; making conscious of the levels and standards of these forces working through and that are you is the work.

But what direction do you think you're moving in? That they're moving in; what do you expect of these other people, these 'new' children?

We have all been born and bread. Do you know the difference between your Self and what has been manufactured?

You let yourself be possessed for certain reasons, and you spend the rest of the time fighting these things off.
Why put yourself in perpetual struggle - what if you removed your self from the game?

The new children are the autistic, crystal, indigo, starseed, etc. that are believed to be growing in number on the earth right now. These are labels people have given to "special" children who are deemed saviors of this world reincarnated from other places also believed to be using a higher percentage of their brain power. We all have this potential, I firmly believe this. Our minds are plastic. I do not expect improvement, I hope for self-actualization.
I think you are both wrong (not wrong but not correct either) becuz:

I think I am possessed by a wise but wicked clown demon (trickster is the word I think). I once saw him on a Sunday morning the instant I woke up. I was 4 years old. He sat on my cushion about a foot long and grinned sadistically at me. Horrorshow. I instinctively behaved like those more nude than dressed sexy damsels in distress in Scream 1, 2.. 3 etc, I mean the hystery ,
woke up my parents who d been boozing till 5 the night before (it was 1o then )
Now the problem was , and the demon had told me so before, that parents can't see him. ,.
He disappeard nevertheless...

About eleven years later, when I started boozing, he suddenly reappeard and told me that the more euphorising chemicals I consumed the more stoned he will get (He did not lie).
so now we are on a first name basis and get along quite well. I think he is close to retirement. Of course if anyone (grown-up) would tell this anecdotes in public, like on a forum, I mean like here, where any one can read it, they would probably being taken to a looney bin.
But that does not solve the problem. So I do not talk about what happened to me. I mean: not in public. I cannot related my demon to your demons. Him. well anyway.

rowens

I'm not talking about morality, or good or evil. And I'm not talking about any specific demons, or any specific understanding of demons. I only mean forces in general, and what those ideas have evolved and devolved into and out of and on and on. Now there are connections that form a realm of shared experience in this universe. Do some want peace and complete harmony? I'm sure some people have that agenda. I don't. But I am on their side. What I want doesn't matter.
Absolute peace and harmony is unrealistic.

Rowens, what do you want?

rowens

I want to keep working. I want struggle, and the intensity of clashing personalities that make love an actual force. I need evil, or so-called evil in the world, but I don't want it. It hurts me, but I need it. Or else I cease to be what I am and those I love cease to be what they are.

You believe you are a slave to this possession? Is there a trigger outside of drug use? Do you paint?
We all have a deep, dark mark on our soul if it does not make up at least half of our self. That is the area the lotus grows out of -

I think you are screaming behind your words.

rowens

Chasing the soul is what's going on in my philosophy. These subjects. Not everyone wants a soul, or has any interest in what that even means.

I'm screaming in and on all sides of my words.
seriously: (I really experienced this strange situaton) but I was 4 so maybe half-asleep. As a grown-up i sometimes have that feeling that forces (I know nothing about) lead me. Sometimes even might have saved my life.(like when I once very stome fall asleep inmy bathtub
and a friend I had not seen for years buzzed me exactly before I drowned. (the guardian angel but without the esoteric kitch). I was so often broke and then " in the last minute" always sth. unforeseeable happened, that saved" me. Maybe : energy would be the word that best dscribes these forces. but I am very sceptic. It is just sometimes those coincidences.Like with Holst. Not the slightest idea why i yesterday thought about his music. Made no sense to me then.

rowens

There are no true coincidences everything happens for a reason, even legitimate coincidences.

Both, either/or; and both/and. I'm an either/or person wrapped in a both/and world.

I heard this somewhere,
ìf you want to be a realized being, you just need to realize that you are.

What if you stopped chasing and stood still? You are like a cat chasing its tail, you do not have to chase it - everyone seems to be chasing another state, another place, another age, another time.

You can rewire your mind Rowens, unless you are truly happy in the state you are in

Your first Golst comment gave me deja vu, honestly

The soul is given and it's not. You have to work to have a soul. For that you need spirit. I can't feel superior to the world, because the world is what I have, and it's not a question of being superior to it. I love the world, but the world isn't something that loves. People can love. But what's a person? And who is a person? You can be influenced by so many forces. You can be influenced and brought under spells in many ways. The world doesn't need anything from us; but most of the people in this world do. At least to continue survival. Survival in the crude sense, and survival in spiritual senses.

You can't have being without becoming. The structures you talk about are fragile and there are only mutual points of energy that have effects on what people share in life. And life can be an adventure through these things.

Not everyone wants a soul. The idea that they are a biological organism is enough for some. The idea of a soul, or any state of being that is consistent in a metaphysical sense is repellent to some. Now what happens when you take their brain out of their head and chop it up?

My points of view aren't beliefs. They're offensive movements. I'm not defending them against others' beliefs as much as I'm imposing them on the world. And in many cases, they are already in the world regardless of me. I'm only voicing them in my biased sense of language.

What is a genius useful for? Why have the idea?

If I was satisfied with chasing my own tail I'd never leave the house.

What is a genius, what is an example? And does a genius serve a purpose in your life?

I said you are chasing your own tail because you have said you are chasing your soul. I believe there is no soul to chase because it is our essence. Chasing makes it sound separate from our self. You are not wrong because this is your perception of reality,
I am not going to argue against your beliefs. I am not here to break down my perception of reality into words until we come to an understanding and agree because there is no understanding in this way. We live in different worlds Rowens, and my perception is of the nature to change.
If I have offended you in any way I am sorry, I have no place analyzing your mind or your life. We can be whatever we want online. I only know of you what you have decided to show.

What I am suggesting,

what if you risked it all. All of these ideas you identify your self with - what if you let them go not because they are wrong but because there are other ways of existing. That is all I am suggesting. We have the potential to completely rewire our minds - our culture, our language and our past shape who we are and what we think but it does not have to. How many of our ideas are implanted or suggested? How do we recover our sovereignty? I am not asking you to answer this, I am asking you to ask your self this

rowens

I'm not complaining about anything you say. Things are far more complicated than anything you say so far, or I have said so far about my ideas. I've had to rewire my brain several times. To survive.

I like to go on adventures. I like to be out of where I am now. But I got in trouble, so I've been stuck here, at my sister's house, since last year.

I like you. I like to tell you what I think, and to challenge you. I like you to tell me what you think and challenge me.

I'm not offended by you, I like you. I'm not trying to offend you, but to tell you a little of what I write and think about.

And I could explain myself, I mean elaborate. But I have to wait until I'm in a better mood. Nobody put me in a worse mood. But things have. So I have to wait till I can think better than I can at the moment. Then I can say something more.

Now I have to go with my friend and help get him out of trouble. So come back soon. And I'll come back on tomorrow, and say more. For now, I have to go on an adventure.

I'm not attacking you. And you're not attacking me. So don't worry, I don't think that. But I have more to say...

rowens

There were plenty other ways of existing. None of them worked. So I had to gather the elements that did work, and make my own use of them based on my own paths.

I follow where my soul leads, but a soul has to be consummated. Chasing your soul and making your soul is the same thing. It has to be created all the time. A continuous work.
