“To the consciousness of a redeemed human being the universe is a relative actuality confined within the spiritual reality of absolute being and is a projection into lower dimensions of a reality which is infinite and eternal. An eternal consciousness of this reality must be the goal and the purpose of human life. Enduring life is essential for the continuing expansion of consciousness, but human life is extremely fragmented by the apparent dying of conscious individuals. If the evolutionary growth of consciousness is to flourish and become more complex the conscious being has to be set free from death. Eternal life becomes essential precisely at the level of the spiritually conscious being. In view of this the person seeking the correct path of evolution and an eternal life must choose to live with faith in the absolute categories of being, believing in a reality that is infinite and trusting in a life that is eternal.”
A common syndrome to people of all faiths is to hide behind physical and devotional attributes of spiritual beings, objectively active instead of subjectively passive, doing rather than just being. “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him” is the advice given by the sages to the unwary, showing that an inwards devotion to the unmanifest as opposed to an outwards devotion toward the manifest is the true path to enlightenment. Don’t hide behind the Buddha!
I am hoping to utilize this platform to communicate my profound view of the world and of life as it is expressed in my book, “The Reality of Being.” Few people in my experience are aware of the depth of the problems confronting all forms of life on earth which have their roots in human error. Until a significant number of human beings take that responsibility which involves an existential acknowledgement of guilt can there be any movement towards a remedy of the human situation, fraught with injustice.
