Same old same old

Reality is transcendent to every actuality, as the absolute is transcendent to the relative. Reality is spiritual, encompassing the void and the physical universe within the void. The universe is a universe of relativity in which the only presence of the absolute is the presence of the void at the center of each living being. Within the relative actualities there can be no absolutes. These relative actualities are limited by the boundaries of rational thought, and it is precisely faith that introduces the absolute into the actual universe, not as idea but as transcendent reality. Faith instructs us that there is a reality beyond the actuality of intellectual existence. This reality is transcendent and absolute while existence is intellectual and relative.

existence is a mere actuality

Existence is conceptual within the human mind and may be both defined and approached through dialectic. Reality, however, is absolute and so is not limited by the boundaries of that human rational thought which outlines and defines existence dialectically in terms of the idea. The reality in which we live as subjects is spiritual, an absolute being, infinitely conscious and eternally alive, immanent within and yet transcendent to the physical universe that exists within its infinite void. The physical universe that human consciousness describes as the realm of existence is an actuality bounded by the limitations of human rationality and the scientific method of thought which explores that finite universe cannot uncover the nature of a reality that is transcendent and spiritual. The consciousness of existence is an intellectual consciousness based on an idea which rejects the reality of the spiritual void, while the consciousness of absolute being is a spiritual consciousness which comprehends and transcends the idea. The spiritual transcends the intellectual as being transcends existence.

a little about faith

The reality of being is absolute and transcendent to every actuality in existence. This absolute being is spiritual, encompassing the void and the physical universe within the void. The universe is a universe of relativity in which the only presence of the absolute is the presence of the void at the center of each living being. Within the relative actualities there can be no absolutes. These relative actualities are limited by the boundaries of rational thought, and it is precisely faith that introduces the absolute into the actual universe, not as idea but as transcendent reality. Faith instructs us that the reality of being transcends the actuality of intellectual existence. This reality is transcendent and absolute while existence is intellectual and confined to a rational universe where everything is relative.

Is peace possible?

Is an authentic human life possible without peace? Since such a life must express the reality of our absolute being within the relative actualities of existence peace would seem to be an absolute necessity, as would be all other absolute attributes, freedom, justice, joy, love. Of course, these can also be relative attributes within the actualities of our existence but in the reality of our being they must be absolute. In the actuality of existence they are possible but in the reality of our being they are necessary. The actualities in which we exist are now discovered to be unacceptable to our true being. Each human being must therefore make an existential movement of consciousness out of the actuality of his or her existence into the necessarily transcendent reality of absolute being, a step of faith.
