280 – We are participants in the unfolding of our Universe …

Tuesday, December 28th, 2021

Why, if it is the most important thing there is, most of us are not aware that we are a part of our Universe?

We would not be alive otherwise.

This lack of awareness about something so important is understandable in those of us whose lives are a constant struggle to survive, but for those of us who have the time to be curious and the opportunities to know how to know, it is unforgivable; our lack of awareness of this truth is the source of our detachment from reality, and the reason why we are destroying the world that gives us existence.

Scientists, especially those in the physical sciences, bear great responsibility for our ignorance; they fail to include us in the nature and beauty of their theorems. It is as if we don’t exist in what they learn about our Universe, therefore, instead of expanding the knowledge of our intimate connection with our Universe, they reassert our feeling of alienation.

The feeling of alienation they evoke in us does not represent the truth that, as every cell in our bodies participates in the unfolding of what we are, we are participants in the unfolding of our Universe.

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered, the point is to discover them.” Galileo Galilei

279 – It is Horrendous …

Tuesday, December 28th, 2021

The killing of human beings by other human beings, especially when incited by hate, is a horrendous act.

It is horrendous to see the normalization by educational systems and religious organizations of hate-incited killing of human beings by other human beings as a natural side of our humanity.

It is horrendous to see filmmakers, politicians, scientists, authors, make the hate-filled killing of human beings by other human beings a common, acceptable, necessary, entertaining act; the winning prize of control and superiority.

It is horrendous to see the militaries of the world inculcating in the mind of the young and vulnerable that the killing of human beings unworthy of our righteousness is something to be proud of, even if it is oftentimes genocidal.

It is horrendous and deranged to see socio-political and religious factions proudly claim responsibility for the hate-filled massacres of human beings by other human beings.

We claim to have evolved beyond the savage behavior of the ‘lower’ animals, but our behavior is no less savage; we are the only ones who kill our own with levels of cruelty and cognition unseeing in Nature.

It is horrendous to see how we, the recipients of the highest and most far-reaching intellect so far known in Nature, kill our own in the name of hate. It breaks my heart.

What has turned us to be like this?
