I do not believe in an identity.
ozone is simply a word that can stigmatize an awakening event.
- first and foremost, i am agnostic.
above all else, i can say with the utmost certainly is, that i do not know. it is not clear to me at least, the separate distinctions, boundaries, conditions, limitations or the extent of the concepts of divinity, humanity and our environment.
- second, I am a scientist.
this is to say that, i want to know. I am willing to conduct experiments to find out. the established principles of the (scientific method) is a reliable way to acquire data about our external, internal, subjective, objective, and emergent realities. if all else fails, we still have the method of trial and error to find our way.
- third, I am an ANTI-theist.
this is to say I am a non-beliver. I reject the modern concepts of mono-theism; as established by and re-written for; the support and function of imperialism. It is my contention that the nature of divinity is beyond the reach of human reason and understanding. It is an article of faith that a condition exists beyond human interpretation.
in other words, there is a definite line between what we can know and what cannot know.
- fourth, i am a poly-theist.
This is to say; there is more than one perspective. I am aware of several traditions, philosophies and concepts of divinity that have valid contributions to the goals of humanism, social well being and strive to reinforce the social contract.
- Last, though not least; I am a yogi of Bodhisattva.
That’s to say, I am a pagan. I have taken the vows of the Bodhisattva path, a branch of the Vhajriana Buddhism. This path is also known as the diamond way; or the rite of ascension. That’s to say that my life, activities and purpose are to make progress towards the embodiment of enlightenment and accept the burden of reincarnation to ensure the enlightenment of all sentient beings.
