Me (Status on Google Plus): You may start your #InnerJourney from one point, i may start from another – but, there is no way for us to not meet at the destination, for the Goal is One
The goal is indeed, ‘one’ as one ‘ponders’ these points, one observes ‘one-ness’ and unlike ‘four ‘blind Men & the Elephant’ story (Google it), one is in accord.
Great point this is. Thank You.
Many thanks for your comments.
Greetings. I (one) received the ‘like’ and was about to click back a quick ‘like the like’, in return. It all vanished, so here one is actually writing ‘Thank you’
instead of the flow of Tamas cleverly disguised as quick Rajas, so thank you.
And for all else one is involved with that will help alleviate suffering.
May ALL beings be happy.
Namaste, blessed to know you my dear. Your message is a piece of wisdom, in one line you have described the gunas so very aptly.
Duality is apparent, what is seen on the surface. Unity, or, rather, Oneness is the underlying Truth.
My dear friend BM’s observations in the above conversation are praise-worthy; are, what i would say, based upon the Vedantic Principles. His words are the words of asadhaka, a spiritual seeker, who is ever attempting to go beyond all dualities and access the underlying Truth. He, indeed, represents all of us, walking the same path.
The outside world, even before the present computer technology, is, actually, already based upon the principles of computer. Behind all the superfluous sophistications and equations, there are certain simple formulas, alt, command, delete, like, dislike, and etcetera – all based upon the principles of dualism. Indeed, the computer technology only represents what has already been there in the human brain.
The human brain is always looking for the easy way.
Lazy Tamas, Aggressive Rajas, or Calm Sattva. Like, Dislike, or remain Foolishly Neutral. Attraction, Repulsion, or Torn-in-Between. This is the World of Mind, our present state of mind, a log-like mind, unpolished. This mind “thinks” it is intelligent, but it is not. It works on certain fixed principles. Anyone can hack it and gain control over it, not only on an individual level, but on a collective level. This is how the advertising industry thrives. This is how the power-mongers continue to stay in power.
As long as we are in this world, as long as we have to interact with the outside world, like it or not, we have to talk the same language. That is if we want to be understood by the world. A handful among us may choose to not be understood, or even misunderstood, and keep to their language of Oneness, not complying with the language of duality that the masses speak in. They are the genius among us. The carefree avadhoots, they are not affected by whatever comments the peoples living in delusion pass on them.
So, now, the choice is ours, which language do we want to speak in?
Speak the language of oneness at all times, not compromising with the duality based world; dance to the tune of the worldly; or…… For the intelligent, the awakened, there buddhas, the choices are numerous – and, they have no problem to jump from one language to another in no time.
Ever free, and not caught in the web of maya, of delusion – the intelligent are beyond all duality. The laws of attraction and repulsion do not affect them. Beyond all likes and dislikes, they are ever in the state of true awareness, of true understanding of the nature of things.
My salutations to such Mentors of Humankind.
