We’re connecting the dots between Anthony Bourdain’s search for Paradise which is the end to his wandering, his search for peace, for home, and Avatar which is a metaphorical map—not unlike Indiana Jones treasure maps—to our inner paradise or God within. But whatever you call it it has no name because there is no path to your inner paradise. You have to create it. And like the Master Chef in Bourdain quest, you have to use the local ingredients in your life: your history, your negativity, your turds, all that you are that is your life are the ingredients for your meal of paradise.
That means that your paradise is not out there in time over the horizon. It is always within as now. So as Christ says, you are in the kingdom of God but you can’t see it. You are in Pandora but you can’t see it because your mind is that of the Sky People, or Thought people who live in a world constructed of ITS. There is no center in this world of relativity, said Einstein. All the external center of the world have been destroyed by science and our IT mind. There are no Home Trees. Everything dies.
But we know paradise exists, we know our center exists, our home exists, our God exists, because if paradise didn’t exist we wouldn’t long for it. We just can’t find it in the mind our society has give us. Therefore, we, each of us are on our own, to discover the hidden clues, that secret door, the hidden path no one travels on. We have to go alone. You can’t go in a crowd, in a church or chosen people. And there are no maps because the path must be created by you our of your life, not someone else’s life, out of their ingredients. You have to be an original cook. There are no recipes.
It takes a life of trial and error to become a Master Chef. You just have to have the heart felt intention to find your paradise, your Spot.
