Hey, big thumbs up on the reply
I agree with everything you said, but wanted to add that we have various systems, philosophies, paths to realize what you've said
That was my point to the OP, but he went off on assumptions. My point being that there are rapid ways to Enlightenment, and the whole TA system is
still built on levels, separatist thinking, ego traps along the way,etc.
Anyway. Great reply
Thank you, glad my rambling was of use to you!
I agree with your view, there are many paths and that's my point, we are not (and should not) be restricted to a singular narrow view however equally
we must also realise we cannot realise our ultimate goal (which is to return to the source and reconnect with creation becoming one again...) without
doing it together, sympathetically, without barriers to help each other rise up from the dredges of this material world and become spiritual
Beings who have a purity which is attained in the physical world so that it has an effect on our non-physical self (illuminating us). Things like
honesty, generosity, piety, are facets of this, helping others, having good intentions, a clean heart, being kind and caring but also firm and sound
in your actions.
Love is the frequency that connects all of us but each of those aspects has it's own signature together they allow us to synchronise with the rest of
creation and merge back into the source (whatever that is).
It's like a man who walks in a shallow river against the current, eventually the current wears him down but he carries on, gaining little benefit
from his endeavour. Eventually he has to realise that he needs to let go and let the current take him, wherever it ends up.
And that is like the universe, the planets, galaxies, space dust...all move in the same direction, driven by some invisible current, purposeful
however it is man that moves in the opposite direction, against the natural order of things.
We live in a world where we have been told to move against everything, to resist the natural order of creation. We have been moving against
everything for so long we have forgotten our purpose and how to move in the right direction (and thus benefiting from everything else that moves in
the same direction).
Everything is living, especially our Earth so we need to stop being parasitic and start being thankful by living in harmony and complimentary to our
One person can't change the world but one person can change him or herself so fix your life, put it into balance and it will be like a ripple effect,
spreading out and effecting others positively.
I think this what the new age is all about, where the previous age was about the material physical self, this one will be about the higher true
spiritual self. People will (and are) beginning to change, asking questions and opening up opportunities for their spiritual identity to take hold
(not everyone will achieve it but I believe you will start to see more and more people talking about how they are perceiving the world differently,
more honestly...I hope).
Sorry for the rant
