25 – Universal Blueprint (Part I) …

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

“We are all in this together”. We hear these words all the time. But do we really understand what they mean? Really!

I think the word Togetherness has lost its meaning because it is used so much in empty rhetoric. Togetherness … of all races, of all beliefs, of all Humankind … is not a welcome idea to the corporate elite that promotes ‘Separation’ (see post 23). To them, and to the corporate media that without principles spreads their destructive doctrines, we are nothing more than gullible and greedy consumers. We are constantly lured into assenting to the twisted notions that our significance as human beings is measured by how much we possess and by how well we manage to avoid taking responsibility for our acquiescence to our own destruction.

There is no easy way to state the obvious: If we continue to accept being indoctrinated by the fallacy of Separation, its dire consequences … war, environmental degradation, starvation, ignorance, cruelty, intolerance, deceit, hate … might wipe us off the face of the earth.

Perhaps beginning to understand what we truly are in the scheme of Nature through our own common sense, and not through the irrationality of those who want our minds closed, could be a good stepping stone to reverse this madness.

  • *   An atom is a congregation of intimately interrelated elements (nucleus, electrons) temporarily bonded together into a dynamic yet pliable system. An atom is particle-like in its utter distinctiveness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. An atom re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which its intake and release of energy sources are sustained in constant equilibrium. An atom embodies a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable design that endows it with the innate capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. An atom is a catalyst for transformation.
  • *   A cell is a congregation of intimately interrelated elements temporarily bonded together into a complex yet dynamic system. A cell is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. A cell re-generates its existence by sustaining its intake and release of energy sources in constant equilibrium. A cell embodies a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable design that endows it with the innate capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. A cell is a catalyst for transformation.
  • *   The earth is a congregation of intimately interrelated elements temporarily bonded together into a dynamic yet pliable system. The earth is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. The earth re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which the intake and release of energy sources are sustained in constant equilibrium. The earth embodies a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable design that endows it with the innate capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. The earth is a catalyst for transformation.
  • *   A galaxy is a congregation of intimately interrelated elements temporarily bonded together into a dynamic yet pliable system. A galaxy is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. A galaxy re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which the intake and release of energy sources are sustained in constant equilibrium. A galaxy embodies a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable design that endows it with the innate capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. A galaxy is a catalyst for transformation.
  • *   A human being is a congregation of intimately interrelated elements temporarily bonded together into a dynamic yet pliable body. We are particle-like in our utter uniqueness and wave-like in our participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of our parent species. We re-generate our existence through a self-reflective process that sustains in constant equilibrium our intake and release of energy sources. We embody a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable design that endows us with the innate capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. We are catalysts for transformation.

    See the similarities? The uniformity? The interrelatedness? The Universal Blueprint in all of us?

    Appearance of Separation is an illusion of our organic senses. There is a physical bond between us that the limitations of our senses do not allow us to perceive. Like schools of fish in water, we are immersed in a medium that not only sustains our existence, but also incites us …  seeking pleasure …  to bond and regenerate, so our parent species … humankind …  may evolve and survive into the future.

    It is up to us. We are all in this together.

24 – We are Universal Systems …

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

How can we not accept the obvious fact that we are Universal Systems? Yet we indiscriminately accept the divisiveness of religious doctrines and the destructive farce of political and economic ideologies. How can we?

Isn’t it obvious that the human being consumes energy sources to transform them into the re-generation and regulation of our component elements, and into movement and action, and into the perpetuation of our existence? Isn’t it obvious that like atomic particles, or cells, or planetary systems, or galaxies, we are not only dependent on energy sources but  are also sources of transformation?

And yet most of us continue to believe in the fallacy that we have been created by the personal intervention of  ‘idols’ imagined by primitive men; ‘idols’ used to keep us ignorant and give us license to control and destroy without taking responsibility for our actions. This is how badly indoctrinated we are.

In the same way human understanding advanced once we accepted the fact that it is the earth that circles around the Sun, and not the other way around, we will further our understanding once we accept the incontrovertible fact that we are universal systems imprinted from the moment of conception with a universal design: Like everything in our Universe (atomic particles, molecules, solar systems, galaxies), the human being is conceived as a cohesive congregation of elements temporarily fused together into a self-contained, self-energizing, self-generating and self-perpetuating system endowed with a relative degree of freedom to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution.

There is no rational way to deny this Truth.

Once we are able to perceive ourselves as universal systems, we will change.

  • *  We will understand that from universal perspectives there are other dimensional levels: The dimension of the atomic particles, and the dimension of molecular compounds, and the dimension of cellular organisms, and the dimension of planetary systems, and the dimension of the galaxies, and the dimension of the entire Universe, and on and on with many more dimensions in between, including ours.
  • *  We will be able to comprehend the reason why … even when made out of atoms which are mostly ’empty’ space … the ground we walk upon feels organic and solid, and the blood in our veins liquid and self-regulating, and the air we breath invisible and evident, and the space between the stars vast and mostly empty, and the skin that envelops our bodies sensuous and obedient to ancient designs.
  • *  We will be able to recognize the limits and the possibilities of perception.
  • *  We will be able to see the interconnections, the intimate interdependence, the utter uniqueness of everything, and the universal design in everything.
  • *  We will comprehend that a human being may be perceived as an entire universe from the perspective of an atom, and as a planet from the perspective of a cell, and as a cell from the perspective of a planet, and as an atom from the perspective of the Universe.

Once we perceive ourselves as universal systems we will understand that, no matter how insignificant or immense we might appear from universal perspectives, we are, just like every other universal system, relatively significant in the transcending impact of our actions: The actions of a Galileo, or a Gandhi, or an ancient sea creature daring out into the unknown, or a planet consenting to the emergence of self-awareness, are transcending.

Once we allow our brains to open up to new aspects of Reality; once we let our minds be led by critical thinking and common sense and not by the greed and selfishness of others; once we can perceive ourselves as universal systems and know that we are innately endowed with a relative degree of freedom to shape and be shaped by our world, we will be able to accept the fact that each one of us is a catalyst for transformation.
