    You like pleasure but not pain ... there's a pain in your life you've been trying to avoid for quite some time now. Looking at it, examining it, is fearful for you. What is to fear but fear itself? But there's the rub; fear is scary, so how does one compensate for that? How does one grow beyond one's own self-imposed limitations? There's this fear that no one even listens, but really the one who's not listening is you, to yourself. You are stronger, bigger, faster, more capable than you believe yourself to be. The world is not as confusing as you feel it is right now; you just need some time to figure out what you want to do now. You can do this. The way out is through.

    That's all I can do for the moment; will recharge and be back.

And this reaching produces more insight, gradually discovering more of the pattern you want to see. But what is good, what is evil? You want it to be all laid out in front of you. You want to understand everything, but it's not yet time for that. There's a humble aspect to this avatar too; a very god-like yet human outcry to the sun and sky. The intellect will take you far on your quest, but you still have a soul to nourish.
    Not bad at all, miss. You have a beautiful ability.

    A few years ago, you probably would have been spot on.

    I'm glad you saw the humble aspect, because, most people who know me, would describe me as anything but...

    The fact of the matter, though, is that I am humble. Not before man... before God...

    I am not a religious person, at least not in the sense that we normally think of them. But I'm also not anti-religious; I am anti-stupidity.

    For me, God means a living, conscious, meaningful universe.

    Another important aspect of my avvy, in my opinion, is the ambiguity between whether I am projecting or receiving said "patterns".

    Czecze, in a post just a few days ago, was scared by my avatar, and said that she thought I was projecting these patterns onto the world, or something akin to that (a very extroverted take on an introvert's avatar).

    But if you look at the light coming into my character's left eye (the one on the right, when you're looking at it), you can see that the light is somewhat "squiggly" -- it does not appear to be the light of something that is being projected from the character onto the world, but something that is being both transmitted and received: from and between world and self.

    This, in a large sense, is the meaning of my avatar: as the internal intuitions that arise within me do not feel as though they are merely my projections -- they feel as if they arise from some deeper, more universal, more all-encompassing source.

    I sit in beautiful bewilderment, soaking in the idea that the universe whispers knowingly in my ear, where it is I'm supposed to be going, and what it is I'm supposed to be doing...

    If only I have faith and learn to listen to her carefully.

    Ha!



    Yeah, well, I'm sure that could be heard from my writings above, as well.

    I've had enough experience in my life that that I would now feel comfortable with someone describing my stance on life as mystical...

    For a while, the "yearning" PeaceBaby mentioned she saw in my avatar -- to know right from wrong, good from evil, truth from untruth -- was very strong in me. I could see things from all different perspectives... but which ones mattered? Which ones were real? Which ones were good?

    The yearning is still true, but I no longer feel the yearning goes unanswered. I've heard too many of the universe's secrets. I see her patterns. And when I listen to her carefully, faithfully, and with openness, she guides me with a wisdom I could not do justice in describing.

    So yes, while most everyone who knows me would call me an extremely critical (not skeptical), pragmatic, and precise thinker, I am very open to what might be described as the mystical and/or the transcendental.

    Yeah, I respect a lot of people I know who like them, so...

    I dunno, from afar, I get a slight sense of nihilism from their music. Is this accurate? I'm very over living with a nihilistic mindset. No need for it anymore.

    Wow!! although my avatar has very specific meaning to me and does not really reflect that exact struggle you describe.. Your description of my inner state is extremely accurate ..
    I am impressed

    Not at all, their music is quite idealistic and for that matter "mystical". A lot of their rythms are written according to mystical geometry. I think their progressive aspect (complex compositions and lyrics) bars the possibility of their music to be nihilistic.
    Their music is quite dark though.

    For years, I've been meaning to give them a better ear, but waiting for the right time.

    I'll take this as the sign that the time is right.

    I guess I might be conflating darkness with nihilism...

    I've always preferred the light over the dark, though, so...

    OK, good.

    I saw PeaceBaby's, but I didn't read it.

    I'll give you my brush at it as soon as possible.

    Very nicely expressed, and inspirational.
