It’s done. The knot which held together many of my conceptual confusions is loosened. I see clearly.
Reality is so simple. Like a sky clearing after a thunderstorm, awareness of truth shines after years of tormented reflection.
“Does God exist?” This is a confused question. Theists and atheists are caught in the confusion. Thinking answering “yes” or “no” is the way forward.
The way forward is to see beyond the question. To see the limits of the question. To see how much there is to experience and grow and do beyond the question.
What one believes about God is neither here nor there. It needn’t point to anything deeper. One can be a devout believer and miss the transcendent experience of feeling God’s love. One can be a serious unbeliever and be clueless about the rational nature of our lives.
Doesn’t matter what you believe or don’t believe. Or even what you do or don’t do. Thoughts and actions are only by products of a deeper way of being. Focusing on the by products can’t lead to the deeper reality.
You don’t get the by products right first and then get to the deeper reality. You leave the focus on the by products behind, and then through your being the right thoughts and actions arise on their own. And in a way you can’t predict.
It is not a limitation of the mind that you can’t predict the path. Just as it is not a limitation of the shell that it has to break for life to emerge.
The rootedness of life isn’t found in thought or in action. It is found in a way of being.
That way of being is characterized by two basic features: no fear & no hate. A total detachment from the fears and hates within yourself.
Be fearless. And be hateless. That is transcendence. That is most rational mode of being.
It’s that simple.
Keep an eye on the fears/anxieties/nervousness and the hate/annoyances/irritations without identifying with them.
Do that and you will understand more about God’s nature or about reason than any book or seminar can teach.
Awaken into the realm of your own being which is beyond your thoughts, identities and ideals. It is a vast ocean of consciousness waiting to be experienced and explored.
See you there.
