Truth is a constant. It is never changing. Truth is the bind that tethers us to reality and yet we find that there is reality and there is illusion. THE ALL is never changing. It cannot be added to or taken from. It has no beginning and it has no end.
THE ALL is truth. It is oneness. It is everything and nothing. If there were places in THE ALL each place would be the same as every other place. Nothing is moving for there is no space and time. It exists in harmony. It has rhythm. It has vibration. But there is no emotion, no ego, and no duality. It merely exists and is everything and nothing at all.
On the other hand, we have this physical reality which is ever changing, filled with duality and emotions. It has time and space. It has a beginning and an end. There is motion without unity. Each of us is an individual an island with our thoughts, our emotions and our ego.
We have our wants and needs. We have our hopes and dreams. We are ambitious, self-centered, self-serving, competitive, greedy, envious, scared, doubtful, and contemptuous. Our mind is closed and we think of how we can become financially free, to have the better things in life.
We try to disguise our disgusting traits and to some degree some of us are successful, but still back in the recesses of our physical mind the urges still lurk. The fact is we all look for the thing that tells us “What’s In It For Me”. The ego has such a firm hold upon what we think, do and say that we scarcely think of anything other than ourselves.
Yet, there are those that rise above this ego when they become awakened. It is a difficult thing to accomplish because of the overwhelming persuasiveness of the ego, but it is something that needs to be done. The ego is for the most part evil or at least the potential to do evil things. Maybe not all the time, but certainly by its very self-centered nature to indirectly cause harmful things to happen to others.
It is our will that creates situations where we strive to be more, have more and do more or less as the case may be. To overcome these, we must learn to not be so concerned about our status or the way others look at us. The self must become nonexistent in the sense that there is pride or self-worth. We know that the body has needs and those must be met for the body to stay alive, but our chief concern is not the glory that is to be found in deeds or possessions.
Every person’s ego spurs them on to obtain power, to be the leader and thus having control over what others are allowed to do. We want to be the center of attention by nature. This “Look At Me” attitude is what drives wedges between us. My will is stronger than yours or my way is the only way just makes enemies simply because all egos make us believe the same.
To forget all that, takes a strong will. To not have feelings of grandeur for yourself is hard to do. To forget the pride and the drive or ambition is a matter of wanting to be one. For it is in the oneness that we see none of it really matters. There is no advantage except the ones perceived on this earthly plane. There are no riches or power in THE ALL. Everything is equal. It is a level playing field where there is harmony and unconditional love abiding in and for all things.
To rise above the pettiness of self is to forget the ‘me’ and focus on the One. Believe in the One for it is the essence of what is truth. When you look around in THE ALL there is no differences and no individuals and it goes on forever. All cosmic energy is alike. It has always been and it will always be, unchanging.
Because this physical reality is ever changing and driven by the ego where the self is the only thing. Just look at the old saying, “What’s In It For Me.” It spells out the whole problem and how self-centered the ego makes us. It is the ego that prevents us from giving without receiving. Physical truth is strictly a matter of fact truth based on the wants and needs of the ego.
Spiritual life is a bonding of permanence, a cementing of faith and self where the mind is focused upon THE ALL. It is seeking a way into oneness for the physical mind. There is a knowing of the Universal Laws that govern this physical plane. These laws create continuity so the universe can run. Any being of the lower dimensions is bound by these laws and must comply with them.
Duality is part of the physical truth in the physical plane and so creates the world we know. A balance is struck by the cooperation of the dual nature of things. With this balance the universe is maintained while the physical being is often confused. The teachings of man over the ages has mostly added to this state of confusion.
Physical truth prevails, in most, as greed and self-promotion rarely take a back seat to the oneness it denies. Our drive and our ambitions have kept us from advancing spiritually. Teachers of religion and theosophy have perverted the word, twisting it and falsifying it for their own gain. Their greed and lust for power have led not only them astray, but those that have followed them.
By the very nature of things, we are our worst enemy. Truth is not sought only creature comforts and the power over others matters to us. The physical existence is our primary concern. How to make a buck is our motto.
But what of the other side of the coin. In a world of oneness would we not all be the same, living happy well-adjusted lives without need or want. Dishonesty and the want to have power over others would not exist. There would be no greed or envy. Only peace and harmony would exist in a tranquil setting.
Which would you prefer? I think the answer is obvious, for in oneness there would be no strife. We would know happiness even though there are no emotions to confuse the issues because there are no issues. When there is strife there is stress, competition, ambition, which lead to all sorts of problems.
Emotions are the enemy of the physical and spiritual being. They lead us in ways that we don’t really want to go. They take us to places that creates the strife we want to avoid. Our very existence is defined by these emotions, whether they are positive or negative. In the state of oneness the positive aspects exist without the personal emotions to get in our way.
Is this then a boring place you might ask, though it is not so. In fact, it is a place of answered wonder where the whole of it will never be known. Like nothing that holds everything THE ALL is precisely that.
