The tools are used to move through this world that we take action in. An individual might believe that the tools will find one their
freedom/harmony/unity - those things the individual is incapable of achieving while having the intent of reaching it.
However, an individual who seeks, seeks to control what is perceived as "beyond control" - that is, the cause of their suffering - but the nature of
their suffering is that it is caused by the person's own manipulative measures that have been developing ever since the person became conscious of
The incarnated soul must grow into a body which is of course originally of this world: designed to survive, and thus having gained a complex of
intelligences and default functions
to thrive - and all the intelligences formed therein are life forms too. For example, the gut flora, or a
Those things against the survival of the body are avoided by that intelligent body, creating instinct as we call it.
Instinct is independent of the free-will that the individual inherits as part of becoming self-aware.
Free-will is the product of an individual operating through duality. The most basic appearance of duality is in survival; what is against survival,
and what is in favor of it. Then, there are the emotions to overlay and complicate the "will to survive"; what emotions are desirable, or (help to
function well with), and what emotions are not. One may notice the potential for manipulations here. If not, then consider the next level of
complexities that you and I devote ourselves too; this next level occurs as a result of the previous one.
What is one's intent, and why? Where will emotion play a part in this?
These three levels I have mentioned are more than simply levels/planes. They are each intelligences that develop from the energy that penetrates All
(thus creating evolution), and whatever form
that emerges has the necessity to evolve such as a rainbow has the necessity to have different
colors; in that analogy, one may notice that there exists an infinitely small variance of coloration between one color and another; as the coloration
approaches the next boundary color, like a rainbow's red ray graduating into an orange ray - they are moved by the will to exist, assisted by the
ever-present energy, and manifesting from infinity.
We as human individuals occupy/perceive a world where changes
from one level of development forms from its respective kind of intelligence to
the next - such as, life forms moving
from expressing the nature of survival (the nature is that of harmony) to expressing the nature of
emotion (this nature is that of movement, thus creating challenges to maintaining a harmony; thus, promoting an evolution in a way that I would say is
related to Darwin's theory of evolution), and so on.
We are seeing changes, or in a better term, movement
Utilizing what one person here said, we are seeing 2 forces.
We evolve here by becoming aware of the harmony. From what i will think, true harmony is only 1 force, and while you are/I am being with it, being 1,
there is therefore the lack of "doing" on the part of the human that was once in a world of duality - the tools that came with being in the human
body (seeing duality) are dropped, and left; the human that once functioned "out-of-harmony" by means of thinking that there was a life law of
seeing "either this side, or that side"(duality), and neither of those perceived sides being the 1 force, nor either side being greater than its
opposite. One force cannot have any movement against it, please notice this, because there is no other force to contend with it.
Feel the harmony, and you will be free?
Seek it, and you shall be trapped...almost a paradox.
Does thinking in opposites help ? I guess the success of any tactic will have to depend on how one approaches it.
Perhaps you cannot "escape" duality's chains through knowing, for all knowledge is of a malleable nature; knowledge is intended to be
used/controlled/possessed for some purpose. Freedom becomes knowledge if it is ever known to you in the same way that you've come to know the world -
that very world you suffer in.
What a mystery.
