Who are you?
What do you what?
How will you get it?
Why do you want it?
What are you?
How will you express that beingness?
Why do you exist?
Like a torus, in the center there is a focal point where you have everything and nothing. The deeper we go into who and what we are, we find energy and vibration and then deeper still we find the bindu.
I learned about the word bindu through studying the Sri Yantra (more on that here, if interested: https://sri-yantra.lukestokes.info/ )
In Hindu metaphysics, Bindu is considered the point at which creation begins and may become unity. It is also described as "the sacred symbol of the cosmos in its unmanifested state". Bindu is the point around which the mandala is created, representing the universe.

Thinking in terms of quantum potential, it’s like the nothing that gives rise to everything but is also still nothing. The closer you look, the more you see nothing. Particles we consider matter constantly coming into and out of existence.
That’s what we are.
How will we express that energy experience? What will we do with its manifestation? This is where intention, desire, will, dharma, and such kick in. What do we actually want and why do we want it? What holds us back from already having everything we desire? Do some of our desires require training and wisdom to obtain, maintain, and steward to prevent them from being a burden? The how makes up the daily movement of energy we expend to obtain. We can use up this energy to either go towards what we want or away from it. If we’re not clear what we really want, we might find suffering as we obtain something not meant for us, striving in vain.
When we do obtain what we think we want, like the flowing energy of a torus pointing ever inward while also expanding outward, we come back to the bindu point of who we are which then clarifies why we are here. One part of the story leads to the next and there’s no benefit to skipping ahead. No shortcuts. If we can figure some things out, find some things we truly want (represented by words and concepts captured in the fruit of the spirit like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control), then we might go to another level to our communities, our cities, our states, our counties, our species, our planet and the life it holds:
Who are we?
What do we want?
How will we get it?
Why do we want it?
Consensus on such things within an individuated unit of consciousness is not easy or simple.
Consensus within life on earth or even within our species seems impossible.
It is not. It is a miracle, but it is not impossible.
Which brings me to what I’m currently wanting, how I plan to get it, why I want it, and how that informs who and what I am. I am energy expressed as a husband and father, doing things related to technology which I believe bring prosperity to my family and create a world we all want to live in. I want to live a life of miracles and mystical experiences and joyful serendipitous outcomes because, from the things I’ve read and what I’ve known as a child, this is all possible. Few obtain it, but I believe the bliss that is available is available to all, based on many things I’ve read and am starting to experience. How do I plan to get this miraculous life style? Simply put: follow my path. I could describe it, but it wouldn’t completely make sense to anyone else anyway, so there’s not much point. It’s something like doing that which I know I’m supposed to do, with no fear and all love, constantly listening and learning and growing along the way. As I discover something, it will change who I think I am, throwing off falsehoods and noise for better signal which is again just energy and vibration.
I share these thoughts for myself as much as anyone else. I’ll enjoy reviewing these ideas in the future and comparing / contrasting them to measure change and, hopefully, growth and progress, assuming such things can be defined.
