Unity is bonding and harmlessness. Two topics in one. There is far too much dissonance in this world. The world screams. The paradox is the we cannot win free because we are already free.
In contemplating unity is it not incumbent upon us to ask why then does diversity manifest? In the book of genesis there is a part about the living things being brought before Adam to be named. Was the naming for nought or is there a principle that diversity serves? The unity cannot be named because the name would be endless. All names name unity.
“It is a magnificent feeling to recognize the unity of complex phenomena which appear to be things quite apart from the direct visible truth.” Albert Einstein
Two subjects go together well: bonding and harmlessness. “Unity” would be both topics as one word. What is called “love” ultimately… unconditioned. I will discuss the conditions people labour under and perhaps why they arise, and how we can own them in ourselves instead of being owned by them. Internal focus. It doesn’t have to be created. Sometimes words can point at the reality. We have a nature about us and we reason our way out of it. Reasoning will not get you there, it will pull it apart and “it” is transcendental. You can’t ration the infinite and people… Seek More
People speak of temptation when they experience instinct and they say it is a distraction. This nature. Why supposedly is this nature unholy? This instinct. Why supposedly is there no wisdom in it? I think that it is our clearest wisdom. Who needs a religious cannon? The Bible itself says that the word of God is written upon the human heart. Many other beliefs phrase it differently, but it is the same idea. Life guides us, and we call it foolishness. Perhaps I judge too harshly, but that seems to be ego, hubris. We cannot win free, because we are… Seek More
Because of the dissonance in this world, it is deafening. The world screams in pain, and I hurt. There is not many problems. There is only one, and it is this we are discussing today. To abstain from it is the code of harmlessness. Love is God and God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. All truth is in that one truth. We can just be with each other. We are the world and the world isn’t evil, but it does reflect the state we are in. Harmlessness is not doing no damage. Destruction isn’t evil nor is death. Harmlessness is seeing… Seek More
Soul mates are true, but overlooked by many. Your soul mate isn’t your other half necessarily, but there is a spiritual force that pairs people. Even if they are your other half we fight with ourselves, so why wouldn’t our soul mate fight with us? People describe their relationships as hell and heaven at the same time. However, they aren’t separate planes. It is all in attitude of approach. It is more about stopping the resistance to the chaos and pain so the perspective shifts. Allowing the connection to be what it is naturally. Not having to have it a… Seek More
Today, we aren’t going to talk about the philosophy of unity. We are going to talk about the principle of unity as it applies to practice; magical, religious, spiritual or artistic. Ever wonder about what really needs your primary attention in your practice? Like do you need to meditate more or focus on health more, that sort of thing? The principle of unity is a guideline for understanding personal development. It consists of a simple realization. You don’t have multiple parts of yourself that need attention. You just have self with no divisions, and if you focus on your personal… Seek More
Can you make yourself have a day with no thought? If it’s mind numbing repetitive thought? It’s mind numbing when you have negative judgements about the thought, otherwise it’s no more disturbing than bird song. “A day with no thought?” Yah, right. You are correct. It’s impossible. But people think they can have a day without drama, a day without emotion, a day without reflecting on old memories. They think they can spend a day “just doing their chores”. Have you, my friends, ever succeeded in this? We are not Vulcans. Even Vulcans actually have these events happen to them,… Seek More
Anyone have a goal they feel they haven’t reached yet in any of their practices? Plenty of them. Share as you will. A lot have to do with making money in the mundane world. Ok, can you identify a single goal? An income source without limitations of location. Ah ok, and all sources give you an idea of what you “have to do” to achieve that goal, but they often don’t work for an individual. This has nothing to do with that individuals ability. When someone who is most comfortable in the mental aspect of their being hears an action… Seek More
Myself, I am extremely mental. So for me, my emotional and physical lives are all filled with mental activity. Rather than a rainbow of experience, I have what would be a muddy blur, at least seen from an outsiders point of view. I can’t meet people in the physical or emotional. My very organic brain won’t allow it, but I do have mental models for everything anyone ever experiences. So though I won’t be able to feel it in the normal way, or interact with it in a natural way, I can understand how feeling and interaction works, and this… Seek More
Unity is about embracing the reality of who you are, and letting that serve as the center of your whole life. You don’t reject the mental for the physical, or reject the physical for the emotional, but move through them as a single unified path. Moving in the way that is natural for you. “Putting your best foot forward” be that your head, your heart, or your body. When you embrace it, the other parts will follow instead of getting out of balance. Yes, exactly. I came from an action family. They couldn’t deal with the fact that my “doer”… Seek More
