242 – It is Entirely up to Us …

Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

That something can be pre-determined and free at the same time seems paradoxical to our intellect … most of us believe that nothing can be two things at the same time. Yet everything in Nature, including us, unfolds by following a pre-determined process (fertilization, prenatal development, birth, childhood, youth, adulthood, old age, dissipation), which endows us with a degree of freedom to choose – whether right or wrong – how we transform ourselves and our world, how we adapt to changing environments, how we forge our destiny.

And so, for those of us privileged enough to have the option to choose, what we do with it is entirely up to us.

The crux of how we make our choices is to do it with the knowledge that pre-determination lays ahead, inescapably waiting for the time when the significance of what we do with our life     becomes the measure of our transcendence[i].

241 – Where do we find Truth? …

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

Our organic senses don’t tell us the whole truth about what we are,

they are too limited for that,

but so are the people who believe their senses are the whole truth.

 

To find the truth,

we have to go beyond what our senses can sense,

yet it is in ourselves.

 

We are universal beings,

nested between the worlds of the microcosm and the macrocosm

where a keen sense of awareness is growing

… becoming conscious of itself,

conscious of the Force of Life bringing together the worlds of the endlessly finite and the infinitely infinite,

creating everything,

creating us.

 

It is in that Force where Truth is. And in us it is

to be found,

to be sensed,

to be understood,

to be loved,

to Be.
