The Fellowship of Awakening- November 13, 2013
Sebastienne Bourdon’s portrait of Rene Decartes, French philosopher who said “I think therefor I am.”
Movie Banner for Mirror, Mirror with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins. ‘Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, who’s the fairest of them all.’
Explanation of Images;
Decartes cannot be correct because I exist even when I’m not thinking. The world isn’t proof I exist. Suffering isn’t proof either. The world reflects, it does not create. Thoughts aren’t perceptible without my belief. My world is a mirror of my beliefs about existence. What I look upon is what I am doing to myself. If the world has reality then I’m in real trouble because I’m at the mercy of the world.
