Are you tired of all the political noise? Tired of the fight? Doesn’t matter which side, it’s all just monkey chatter. Everyone spinning the truth, taking comments out of context and arguing they are right no matter what the facts may suggest….assuming we have facts anymore. While it is much easier said than done, ignore it and it will fade into the background. Humanity has lived through this type of divisive polarity multiple times before. Holy wars, witch hunts, the red tide of communism, climate change, disease. It’s the never-ending parade of horribles.
“Yeah, but this time its different. Now its personal and has consumed the entire globe! Come on, Dude, don’t you watch the news?”
Yes, I watch the news on occasion, but as I said above, its much healthier to ignore it. The reason the dramas drag on endlessly despite our best efforts to overcome them is simple. Humanity is not working to correct the cause of the problem. Humanity is ignoring the disease and treating the symptoms.
Cure the disease and the symptoms will go away. Guaranteed.
The disease is duality. The veil of forgetfulness. Viewing the world only through the eyes of an individual with a host of individual needs will breed greed, envy, hate, etc. The disease is quite contagious and hard to treat. Individuality, it is the disease of the forbidden fruit.
How do we treat the disease? Not by spending countless hours and energy treating the symptoms. That does nothing more than create a vicious circle of drama. To treat the disease, we must first understand what it is.
Duality is viewing the world as an individual, with no connection or entanglement with anyone or anything else. What a lonely, scary idea. We all know that is a fiction, we all know we are connected at some level with at least those we love, but we ignore the truth before us and cling to the tragic fiction that we are all autonomous. The Truth is that we are all connected. We are each connected to everything that exist.
The opposite of duality, the cure for the disease, is ultimately the realization, the knowing that we are all One. Consciousness merely observes this reality through the eyes of the “individual”. Sit in meditation and see yourself as you separate from the body and then observe your body in meditation. See your body as being made of sand. Once you are able to do this, feel a warm breeze that slowly blows over your body until there is nothing left. Your body is gone, yet you are still there. You have no substance, yet you exist. This is the True Self, that which is real.
We are that consciousness and that consciousness is all of us. We are interconnected and that connection ultimately merges into One. Understanding the Truth of who we are, lifting the veil and remembering our magnificence, cures the disease and therefore cures the symptoms.
Where do you want to focus your time and energy in this lifetime? Attempting to cure a never-ending parade of symptoms or working to cure the disease? Cure the disease by investing the time and energy into remembering your True Self. Know that we are One and radiate that Truth to all you walk with.
