Reality, Truth and Knothingness

Imaging the spin of sound into light into knothingness

Spending time with those we love and care for is a source of remarkable joy. When mutual values are firmly in place, our hearts and minds are open, linked by the luminous bonds of acceptance, respect, and understanding. Amazing grace and peace prevail in the presence of such experiences as participants are free to appropriately express that which is both ‘true’ and ‘real’ for them in any given moment.

Sadly, such openness is sorely missing in our world today. Knowing about or spending time with those who are forced to live in conditions where there are deep differences from ours, often leads to discovering that what they live for is a universe apart from how we live. In the ‘Me first World’ too many of us occupy, far too many among us confuse ‘quality of life’ with a particular life style. We’re blinded by belief that what we have been taught to believe as true is simply an opinion, and not a fact.

How often do invest your energy in the belief that your point, perspective or opinion is true?

How often has such a ‘fact’ proven to be an erroneous assumption, or worse, a lie you bought without bothering to fact-check?

Do you have a habit of holding on to your position even when it’s been proven false?

In my opinion, my heart tumbled and my brain humbled many times over, there can be no such thing as an ‘atheist’. The reason is simple; no one with half a functioning brain says they possesses 100% of all the Knowledge. Ergo, their 'conversion' is instant; they are agnostics simply by admitting that outside what they think they're certain about, something 'divine' --regardless of what name such divinity may be given-- may in fact, exist.

EXISTENTIAL QUESTIONING VS. LIVING EXISTENTIAL LIES

Is it possible for humans to live together, simply being willing to experience and express what’s true for us in the moment without demanding another accept it as “The Truth”? The fact is that what’s true and real for any one of us, individually or as a group, is neither ‘the Truth’ or the ‘Reality’. Everything is subject to change whether we like it or not.

Living this day accepting and developing our best understanding of what we experience is what fills our world with grace. When openness, conscience and curiosity are our dominant characteristics, they fuse and lead us to amazing places where incredible connections are possible. Remember today how seldom information is knowledge. As you live your life wholly and fully, know that what you say and do impacts all that ‘is’ even though every ‘believing’ is simply your brain sketching nothing into nothing. How you say what you say, and how you do what you do is what truly matters. From the space of Love, feel, speak and lovingly do whatever you do with love.
