Recently a sweet friend asked me the following question:
How is it possible to show the same love and affection to everyone, sometimes there are people who irritate us in such a way that I do not have a good feeling and I cannot show them love ?
At one time in my life I realized that “all is one”, that we are all “One Consciousness”.
“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.”
― John Lennon
Please do not take sides in religion, religion is man made. The moment we take sides we lose our divinity, we forget to be the love and compassion that we were born to be. We forget our human brotherhood, and we get blinded by prejudiced teachings against groups of people just because they have a religious label (as Christians, Muslims, Hindus etc.)
In this short but interesting video by David Icke — a preview to his weekly subscriber video cast — the plasticity of the human brain is discussed and how, over time, our minds and thought processes can easily by affected and changed to fit the control system’s needs, if we do not take charge of who we truly are.
In my last blog in the Rising Life Series, written for and published by The Rising Way, I wrote about The Ultimate Hero’s Journey, and the work of the late Joseph Campbell, American mythologist, writer and lecturer.
Campbell made a compelling case in his book, The Hero With A Thousand Faces, that all mythology can be seen as a single great story in which a hero goes through great trials and tribulations, based on a common pattern, to reach an experience of the eternal source to then return with gifts powerful enough to set their society free. Campbell suggests that the eternal source lays underneath the world of phenomena and that it is constantly pouring its energies into the perceived world of time, duality, suffering and ultimately death. The single great story sees the human race as engaged in the effort of making the world transparent to transcendence or making the eternal unknown known.
