I have started travelling the world. The above picture was taken while I was in Scotland. It is an odd thing to be blessed, odder still to be given such an opportunity.
Even though I have just started the experiences I am having are giving me an insight that I don’t think I would of arrived at if I had chosen security over The Flow. My decision to want to travel I knew was a requirement in my life if I wished to practice what I preached.
The biggest insight I had was that the most powerful force in the world is not necessarily love, but grace. Love is simply a product of grace. Grace can be conducted as a choice in the presence of all emotion including anger and hate. You can absolutely hate someone but choose to treat them with grace. Everything in the world could go wrong in your life and the universe could owe you an infinite debt and you can still choose to make the debt even larger with selflessness.
I am slowly also starting to understand the reality mask which is the state most of us live our lives in. There will be moments in our lives where we feel like we are connected with the universe and then we slip on the proverbial life banana which crashes us back into reality and makes us question our previous experiences.
The objective for us all should be to leave the reality mask which does nothing but force us to live a life of bedlam. To feel connected is far superior than feeling isolated and common.
Everyone is searching for something and many people find the answers in the drugs of the world; the most pervasive of these drugs is emotion. Religion serves it up on a platter and the news exploits suffering. While discovering the overwhelming all encompassing impossible peace, that is the absolute, will certainly affect your emotional state in the world of the senses, it is merely a bi-product. An almost disgusting after taste of emotion that is only bearable because it is better than everything else.
Emotion is unpredictable and is highly dependent on our current state of affairs. It can lie to us and is susceptible to even the smallest variations in biology. The idea that these sensations which bind us to our survival in the natural world can represent the absolute is a little absurd.
Though it is absurd, that has not stopped the emergence of purveyors of emotion masking themselves as spiritualists. They re-brand standard emotional treatments like psychology as spirituality while completely ignoring the absolute. If you care about discovering the absolute, don’t accept the scams. There is something beyond emotion and beyond the shadows of the reality you perceive.
