I enjoyed the recent post by sylvie and feel it had an awful lot to offer us. The interest it attracted shows its was beneficial to many. On the other
hand, I would like to add another angle to what has been said. This angle, affects many masters, in the sense that if they were born at all it was in
one country and culture in particular.
Its easy to honour any culture as holding great knowledge, I feel that is a completely misguided view. Firstly, if my grandfather was a
scientist who uncovered many mind boggling truths, that doesn’t make me a holder of this truth. Nor anybody from my town,city,country or culture.
This applies to all trades and professions, mystics, or any name you wish to mention.
What does this mean? For me it points to the fact, that to believe otherwise would be childish and unwise. We have to tread carefully in our
search for any truth. Even as much, to consider that we may not always be up to standard to understand the truth. Its a slow process, where at least
on the temporal level we must shed skins and update our views regularly.
So to give a few examples of what I am trying to say, I will start of with one of the biggest. Jesus, in Spain for instance we have millions
of believers in Christ. Now was he Spanish? Or related to the Spanish culture? I don’t think so. None the less, what he apparently taught is valued
by people of a different culture. Not only that but they have plenty of preachers, apparently spreading his word. So should we say? This is foreign
and not of our culture therefore it is not beneficial to us. Or should we investigate these teaching and those who preach? Should we follow blindly
and say of course these preachers would not lie to us. Or should we consider that maybe, these priests hold a very distorted version of his
All teaching have spread from one region to another, its always been that way. Most of our medical knowledge that the ancient Greeks
created, reached our modern world thanks to the translations of the Arabs. Should I leave Taoism behind, because its did not originate in my culture.
Should I ignore what the ancient Indian Vedas left behind, simply because I am not from India.? Should I follow what the Europeans say just because my
forefathers where from there? I doubt it. So why would you believe or want to even listen to any information from a foreigner ?
I offer this view, no matter what the colour of skin or the source from where any information comes from. We initially show interest in the
subject, be we are seeking to know more. Its a risky process as there is no way of knowing in a quick and easy way, what we are stepping in to. But
who said, we had to do it blindfolded and in a rush. We don’t have to join any cults to find out the truth. We can simply discover the truth, its
most certainly are birthright. The same way as its our birthright to be surrounded in lies. That’s part of our freedom. The truth is owned by no
tribe only each tribe has their own path of walking towards it.
