'Consistency' Chapter


People praise consistency as a virtue, and of the virtues consistency is perhaps the easiest to keep to. Consistency is balanced or unbalanced. We live on the surface and seek consistency in material affairs, most of us. This is imbalanced, and leads to an awareness of mortality without seeing what endures. Thus insanity. Others choose to live more inwardly, and remain unmoved by surface data, or to be more honest, little moved.

Soul is love. Is why it enters into this complex and often troublesome system of relationships. It has its own reasons, but what does this mean for us? Where is the ultimate purpose to be found, and why all this consistency? I would offer that we seek to preserve the surface, but neglect the center. Without the center nothing endures, which just makes us more panicky and grief stricken, fearful.

“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead.” Aldous Huxley (English Novelist and Critic, 1894-1963)

“What, then, is the true Gospel of consistency? Change. Who is the really consistent man? The man who changes. Since change is the law of his being, he cannot be consistent if he stick in a rut.” Mark Twain (American Humorist, Writer and Lecturer. 1835-1910)

Life By Principles

We praise consistency in most things unless the consistent behaviour is judged negative, but then we still prefer it to inconsistent negativity. The person who’s only erratically negative is much more scary socially for some reason. Is it not true… Seek More

Guiding Dynamic

So what in our own being is ever consistent? Is anything? Change? Is the change aimless? If we err but must be consistent, then we must be “damned”? There can be no atonement or salvation, because consistency is virtue? I… Seek More

Consistent Power

All of our senses function on one principle, and it is the consistency behind all senses. Attention. We have this power, because attention is the process by which we express our individual purposes here. How we are individuated in any… Seek More
