    But then I look down at my little paws, look down my little nose at my whiskers, and say to myself Mole, you live underground, and so your place is underground, there is no room underground for almighty. So I sigh, brush my velvet fur coat, and return to my diffident life and my personality, underground.
    What are you hiding from Mole? Come out and play.

    This life is a lie, I knew that admittedly fully well on early '08. It wasn't a shock either. I must've been 20 years old.

    The only rescuing salvation I could've had needed a lot of dedication. It was purpose. What am I doing here etc. I guess I needed to show dedication.

    To clear up our karma, i guess, and to become aware of the present moment, and spiritual reality.

    Our recurring dreams turn into recurring nightmares to grab our attention.

    Sorry, can you explain a concept further. I have some guesses, but what are you assuming by "grabing our attention"?

    Maybe recurring nightmares are the ways of subconciousness to remind you about some issues you have to resolve.

    I actually think temporal existence is a transient state for our ethereal selves; kind of like a dream, but more like a state of amnesia that lasts throughout our journeys into mortality.

    Cultures all over earth, throughout human history, have believed in life after death, or the continuation of existence succeeding death, or the existing of the body. There have been numerous account of such a phenomenon from people who have died and yet were resuscitated. (I also find it intersting that in cultures that little or no contact with one another before the modern area, the concept of ghosts or spirits existed. It is a transcontinental concept).

    In Cherokee there is no word for good-bye because the held belief is that no one is ever really gone, we merely pass from one state of being, from one realm of existence, into another. Basically, we see this world as a temporal illusion. So, in a sense, we could say "life is a dream" but it would be more accurate, in my way of seeing, to say, life is a memory. But then again, where is the line between dreams and memories?

    And yes, I think time is an illusion, but it would take me hours to break it down and explain my precise reasoning; so, since I am currently temporarily confined, to paraphrase Deanna Troy, I don't have time to talk about time, at least not now. I simply wanted to throw it out there and say that my thinking leans in that way.

    So life, as we know it, is a memory and time exist only from the stand point of now.

    Presently they all sat down to luncheon together. The Mole found himself placed next to Mr. Badger, and, as the other two were still deep in river-gossip from which nothing could divert them, he took the opportunity to tell Badger how comfortable and home-like it all felt to him. "Once well underground," he said, "you know exactly where you are. Nothing can happen to you, and nothing can get at you. You're entirely your own master, and you don't have to consult anybody or mind what they say. Things go on all the same overhead, and you let 'em, and don't bother about 'em. When you want to, up you go, and there the things are, waiting for you."

    The Badger simply beamed on him. "That's exactly what I say," he replied. "There's no security, or peace and tranquillity, except underground. And then, if your ideas get larger and you want to expand—why, a dig and a scrape, and there you are! If you feel your house is a bit too big, you stop up a hole or two, and there you are again! No builders, no tradesmen, no remarks passed on you by fellows looking over your wall, and, above all, no weather. Look at Rat, now. A couple of feet of flood water, and he's got to move into hired lodgings; uncomfortable, inconveniently situated, and horribly expensive. Take Toad. I say nothing against Toad Hall; quite the best house in these parts, as a house. But supposing a fire breaks out—where's Toad? Supposing tiles are blown off, or walls sink or crack, or windows get broken—where's Toad? Supposing the rooms are draughty—I hate a draught myself—where's Toad? No, up and out of doors is good enough to roam about and get one's living in; but underground to come back to at last—that's my idea of home!"

    The Mole assented heartily; and the Badger in consequence got very friendly with him. "When lunch is over," he said, "I'll take you all round this little place of mine. I can see you'll appreciate it. You understand what domestic architecture ought to be, you do."

    Yes, it is called the return of the repressed.

    in every grain of immortality is a seed for temporal existence and in every grain of temporal existence is a seed for immortality. Our lives are transient but we live on by our actions attitudes and spirit and duck and dart out of the infinite space by the grace of our persistence.

    my humble opinion of course.
    "i shut the door and in the morning
    it was open
    -the end"




    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Mole, if I was looking for an almighty champion, I wouldn't choose me first. Make no mistake, the Almighty God knows your name, and you are loved.
