104 – Paradise …

Under a system of false and dogmatic beliefs that support the dominance of self-serving elites, most of us are coerced into believing the irrational concept that Paradise is not, the gentle, destructive, creative, and amazingly beautiful world in which we come alive, but the imagined garden-like place from where we were thrown out long ago as punishment for wanting to Know; or the fantastic heaven-like place where we may enter after we die if we submit, unquestionably, to the dictates of dogmatic beliefs the likes of: whoever dares differ from my beliefs is a foe to be exterminated; happiness is achieved through greater and greater consumption without regards for the consequences on the environment; my idol-deity, not yours, is the true one; atoms, cells, the mind, everything, the Universe, Life itself, can be understood by breaking it apart.

These beliefs are perpetuated through fear and deceit, and aim to obliterate our innate desire to explore the evident Truth that with all its misery, struggle, incredible beauty and profound mystery, this world we live in is Paradise: The beautiful planet where we can Be and love and grow and try to be happy, the only Home where we can imprint our legacy.

The horrors that dogmatic beliefs bring upon us are painfully evident: Genocide, constant conflict, hate, complete disregard for the value of human life, the acceptance of lies and destruction as natural, the estrangement from common sense and the knowledge of oneself, the devastation we impose on the environment that engenders and sustains our lives.

By surrendering to the coercion to look for Paradise in a fantasy, we are ravaging it And by doing so, we are driving ourselves into levels of devastation we cannot even imagine.

The enslaving grasp of Dogma on us is fierce, but even fiercer is the liberating freedom of the Truth.
