The purpose of this book is to create unity amongst all sects of Religion, Spiritual practices, Science. We are in changing times where the need for humanity's union is necessary, a time where we are separated by class, political choices, social groups, Spiritual choices, individual egos(The ”me,myself,I” as disconnected from all else). Now I am not a man whom claims to be able to shed light on all these things however I do believe there is a grander unity of simply being human.
One of the most controversial topics we find driving war, bigotry, separation of the people and political gains is the spiritual separation of humanity. I may from time to time upset a spiritual group but this is in no way meant to offend but rather give honest take on our culture clash within the spiritual mind. Attempts are made in New-age Movements to unify but in my experience these movements still lack something undefined to my eyes. A new attempt needs to be made. This is combining Eastern,Western thought as well as Roots, Native American spirituality and Natural Sciences all connected through personal experiences.
We in the western culture surrounded by myths of what should or might be, but few look at what is. We must start to understand the myths of ourselves as the separate self, the “I”. The “I” is what puts us into the realm of hallucination. We consider ourselves intelligent as we conform to an unnatural world as we already create an illusion able to accept the lies that make us feel good. We must as a nation try to see the world through a child’s eyes and approach things with a childlike curiosity.
I truly believe the best way to read this book is under a tree, in the park away from the mainstream distractions. A running theme in this book will be nature of self and self as nature, and thus our true spiritual Identities. When we consume information, we must open all our channels in this case our channels are best opened without that buzz of the fridge or the hum of our computers resonating at low frequencies. all these unnatural frequencies of Appliances, Electronics and yes even cellular phones create mind altering frequencies. I currently struggle with typing on this laptop with maintaining the most connected sense of realism to nature as I sit out in the woods at times to write these words.
We live in a World of labels and within labels we narrow perception on an automatic subconscious level, so the ideas expressed may be vaguely categorized as to not create narrow streams of thought yet to still create an understanding of reference to a philosophical or spiritual concept. This is a route of passive thinking to difficult topics often referenced in a sense of authority as a preacher or some other spiritual figure, however not in the form of uprising but rather expanded thought to be unified in difficult times.
If a God is believed as love than shouldn't that surpass conflicting beliefs.
Tyeing together wonders of Science and the need for spirituality seems to many as two completely individual topics. Creating two separate compartmentalizations in the mind or in some cases a versus war. This in the act of Theists touting Atheists which again panders to a duality within humanity. However in our mainstream American culture we are taught duality in almost everything as one idea is a threat to another idea.
We find entitlement to our belief systems to where any opposing belief or rational explanation feels as if it is an attack on another's belief. But what is belief? confidence in the truth or existence of something not immediately susceptible to rigorous proof. Have you ever had that conversation with a believer explaining your wrong but cant tell you why your wrong, then you say I believe such and then explain some details only to upset the believer? Even when you mean absolutely no offense or placement of judgment you find you just become the enemy. Why do we rate these beliefs so high if we cant give ourself any backing other than so and so says so?
Spiritual alignment is valued by many in forms of Religion, often guarded within ego(again the separate “I”) and conditionals of who one ought to be, or you cannot play. Realizations however demonstrate our Being as just being the spiritual self. As we classify ourselves as being businessmen, laborers, Man/Woman or even simply H***-sapien we immediately lose ourselves in ideologies of what is. What is, is this moment as you read this book.
The western world is entrenched by by myths even those that conform to that which is of the logical mind. The idea that something should be
On the opposing end of the Theocratic debate We see our ideas of western scientific knowledge as a way to disprove ideas that have been held from primitive man to now. What we must see to a correlation is that western science still panders itself to the Idea of Creation. I would like to suggest the idea of something as infinite,that is to say the big bang theory as a means to give beginning. The idea of something as infinite without beginning seems preposterous to the realm of western thought. Evolution is very obvious as a constant and so our beginning was also part of a constant in every beginning has an end as every end has a beginning. We are a beginning to the end of another evolved species and the end to our species is the beginning to what is to come after us.
I contend that science is merely a construct of formulated philosophy based upon mans creation of tools. The philosopher much like the scientist starts with a question or idea and through research of the former scientist creates the hypothesis to be tested to draw conclusions to share. The idea already sets the basis for the specific tests after the research of previous specific tests thus narrowing the data gathered. The tools created to test the ideas are as man-made as that in the Biblical or spiritual text or even the book in your hand. The numbers we use in math are man-made ideas that may develop guidelines for construction or creating even formulating new Ideas, however these numbers a construct by man to create an illusion of comprehend-able understanding. Don’t get me wrong these, are wonderful tools man has developed for understanding and creating, and I myself do willfully use them as the tools they are.
So let us examine that both paths in western thought are specialized forms of thought. I notice the idea when spoken of combining the two paths of thought into a unification and the filling of the gaps to religions, spirituality and non-believers seems either crackpot or an attack only angering the minds of these two separate ways of thought. The idea that we can combine faith a knowledge should not be a threat to anyone, or culture.
I do not wish to be at a constant dig within the realms of critical analysis of how we think, but rather take us forward into our natural evolution of spirit and knowledge and harmonious interconnectivity of all that is our being. whom we are naturally supposed to be. Throughout history There have been many great philosophers, explorers, spiritualists and scientists
More than Just simply focusing on the ways of thought of just the faith and sciences I also wish to demonstrate comparative oneness we see amongst many spiritual practices as well as how one practice fills in gaps for another practice of spiritual thought. As an artist paints a picture with a brush, that picture is to the artist the holy grail of perfection. Another artist looks at it and may say oh but its lacking this,that and this. now we have a feudal clash in the art world. The Painter should be able to laugh and say well thats your vision and I accept that but I am curious to learn more of your vision. so now we have created not debate but rather a collaboration where both artist expand thoughts. The dualistic thoughts of the Yin and the Yang are now unified in the one Yin/Yang. I would look at this Painting as the astonished viewer at an art gallery and see the names on a single picture as a unified masterpiece, but even I may have a thought to add now we are working within the unified Yin/Yang/Yin. As to every truth there are three perspectives his/hers and then the outsiders perspective. It is the outsiders Perspective in which this book is written.
