The ancient teachers believed that to understand something, one needed to experience it in its totality. In order to understand something, it must be placed correctly within its complete pattern. For the old philosophers, no item or phenomena could be examined separately or there would be no understanding of its place in the whole. They could through deeper intuition sense the energy of each element without separating it.
If you separate cells and analyze them, you will find no life, because in the process of separating them, you have begun the process of ending their life. Cutting off members, one by one; the arms, legs and head, you will find only the end of the energetic life flow.
In the old philosophies, the only way to find truth was by putting things together. Every separation is a destruction of unity, every destruction of unity begins a foundation of error.
The more parts we accept, the further we are from truth. Uniting is more important than specializing and dividing.
We lose the ability to understand the deeper aspects of human society when we separate the human race and we specialize through territories, language, religions, political parties and race. We learn more about who we are when we annihilate intervals. We can never understand the existence of any single piece until we recognize the place of that piece within the total pattern of existence.
Today, when an individual comes to a health practitioner complaining of a particular problem, is the problem residing only within the given spot where pain or discomfort is felt? Does a health practitioner look deeper than just the reading and analyzing of numbers, in order to discover a deeper cause than might be present? An audit by the IRS; a sudden breakdown of a relationship, a loss of employment, a loss of a loved one or pet, can be a primary factor in an individual’s difficulty. Determining whether these other conditions are present, is placing the individual in more of a complete pattern, where we now have a better understanding of the situation.
The individual who is desiring a fuller expression in their spiritual, psychic and physical life must recognize the value of seeing the world as a unity. When you come to the realization that all things have their place; and all seemingly individual parts follow a pattern and design; when you see that the individual parts are held together through rhythms and vibrations, but they are all a part of a whole, then you will truly hear and have a better appreciation for the symphony of life.
When individuals utter the statement or feel within their consciousness, ‘Why can’t they just be like me,’ from what state of awareness is this coming from?
I recently met with a group of individuals who were seeking to discover how they could reach a different group of individuals who did not share their political viewpoint.
Taking a look from a different perspective, are we supposed to be in agreement with other individuals? Is it an aspect of this reality that we all think, act and react in exactly the same manner?
I would propose the following. Is it possible that the events that take place in our life are similar to a stage where the backdrops are rolled in and out of place on the stage? Do these events that confront us have an ultimate reality or a relative reality? That is, are we a republican, democrat of independent in spirit? Has God ordained that we must come out of each living with a specific viewpoint?
I often think of the quote by Grantland Rice. “For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes not that you won or lost, but how you played the game!”
Taking this premise, a bit further, is it possible on this earth plane, that it really doesn’t matter what you believe, but how you act in the pursuit of your viewpoint or belief. How you play the game! Those with a religious bent might consider how they are emulating, or not, the words of their religious leaders and Deity. Should the precepts laid out stop at the doorway of politics, race, religion, financial standing or positions of power?
I only bring up some food for thought, since I’m composing this before lunch time. I feel that each of us is placed within our own particular and unique situations to demonstrate where we are in the unfolding of our spiritual awareness. You are not what you are because you are constantly telling yourself such, it is how you act, how you communicate, how you are walking through life.
I remember working with a woman who had been married 3 times and each relationship ended with her being beaten up by her husband. She told me that they were good men. I stopped her and said, if the best terminology in your parlance is someone is good, and you are saying these men are good, then how do you describe that man who is loving, kind, respectful and such? I believe a better description might be, they are men who have been good at times. There is a big difference here.
The point of the above paragraph is in looking to define, someone, something, a belief, a statement or a movement…ask whether it is the highest and best at all times for all people and all situations or is it a relative truth that works for a limited few at a limited time and perhaps is really a learning experience for ourselves. You will not be carrying things and labels into the next dimension. You will be reviewing how you played the game.
With love, in love and through love to you. You are Spirit, you are Power, you are Light and you are Love that can manifest to its highest and best within this lifetime.
