So many of our lives are hardly worth living today. So many of our lives are not permitted to live beyond days, weeks or a few months or years. Our tribal and historical, educated and traditional divisons battle in competition in this world, and in such battle, where is love ever to be found? Is it that finding security in divisons against others, as we do, Christians, Muslims, Brits, Americans, Russians, maintains a condition of hostility within humanity? Is love possible to find in such a divided world? Does the division of wealth in this world, so many with not enough, and a few with more than could be spent in a million years, and manipulating in positions of power ever for more, not deny love in this world? How can love exist when men are so divided in their monumental self interests?
I must begin this post by stating categorically that I am no Christian. I am no follower of any organised nor traditional religion. To this man, these are not real religions, for they divide people, and division is an unholy state. (Un- wholly). Neither, do they offer any transformation to any man’s life.
The word ‘holy’ carries etymological meaning, related to the word ‘whole’, related to the completion and unity of not only one mankind, but to the totality of the universe, for the word universe, originally meant ‘one song’. Although, for the stated reason as being the root of division, I follow no organised religion, I am no Christian. I do however, enjoy certain verses from many religious texts, including the Christian Bible, because they mirror a deep wisdom reflected in a keen observation of life.
The Bible is packed full of commandments that we love each other, as we love ourselves, that we love our brothers, that we love even our enemies and those who wrong us in life. I wish to explore a very small piece of text from the Bible with you, Christian, and non Christian alike, I wish to explore the words, and the meaning behind the words, for without arriving at a meaning, words remain as useful as a street sign pointing to nowhere:
“All of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”
So reads Peter 3:8.
Let’s break this down, a part of it anyway, in this short blog post I wish to focus on two elements here, ‘unity of mind’ and ‘brotherly love’.
One, may be needed for the other.
Unity of mind.
Unity is one. One is indivisible. Two is divided, and is the necessary minimum number for conflicts and wars to erupt.
‘Unity of mind’ are words which relate both to an individual mind, as well as to the mind of humanity collectively.
We have neither.
‘Unity of mind’, necessarily denies any ability to find our security in differing beliefs, in differing religions, for division, is no unity.
‘Unity of mind’ denies all divisions between us in our society, in our lives, because how can we suffer billionaires, royalty, divisive politics, ideologies, divided nations, and yet maintain a ‘unity of mind’? Obviously, we cannot. And so we do not, have any unity of mind. Collectively, individually, and transparently.
A 'unity' of people implies a sharing, and a giving, to where it is needed. Certainly not the way this corrupted world operates. The original meaning of the word "corruption" was to break into pieces. Our world, so divided, is certainly a very corrupt world.
Now look to the so called ‘individual’ life, which is not individual at all - for we all live in the same divisive conflicted educated and programmed demonic inward structure of conflicted human consciousness, legacy of a terrible education, designed by previous global elitists, another useless, and as we are seeing in our 'Great Reset' today, dangerous, division.
Our human consciousness is the ground of all self-interest and so all divisions in our lives. Here, we find divisions between thinker and thought. Past and future, self and other. We find educated divisions of religious beliefs and political persuasions, historical divisions of culture and class, continued infinitively, by the action of drumming into our children the divisive tendencies of the divisive societies we were born to suffer our divisive lives within.
Why have our churches and religious leaders not emphasised this tragedy? This inward division, denying unity, even to our own lives? Why not our politicians? Why not our esteemed leaders, Royalty? Could it be because there is a certain profit for these people, in the continuity, of that which brings our race repetitively to destruction? Our divisions.
To emphasise this inner root to all our conflicts, such traditional establishmentarians would have to end their little enterprises, and correspondingly, their very privileged positions in this divisive life. For they are, as much as any of us are, deniers of a unity of mind between us all.
These all divide us, and the evidence is in our inner thinking allegiances to these historical and traditional patterns.
As we are divided by nationality, the curse of patriotism, ideologies, politics and class social status, among many, many other things.
Unity of mind within us and between us, is to find love. Care for each other. In unity, in the grand total number of one, divisions, and so conflict, are quite impossible.
Division, as we live, is hate. And we are divided. And so we have a world full of the animosity and the conflict which naturally arises when that which is one, such as humanity, such as your very mind, has been unnecessarily divided.
We have lost all meaning of this word, we have brought it down to the base level of physical attraction, attachment and sex. Surely, this is not the ‘love’ mentioned so often in the Bible?
Our ‘love’ contains jealousy, which is a form of hatred for another. Can this be love?
Clearly, we have lost not only the quality of love, but even the meaning of this word itself.
The human race is one. Human consciousness, upon close examination, is one movement. One, may be divided infinitely, and we have found our security in this limited approach to life. We never seem to have realised, that finding security in a division against others, denies the very security we seek to find, in the division. As humanity, it is only ever when we are all of us secure, that we are secure, as a race.
Love may be what we need to find to heal our lives, and on expansion into society, as our actions all arise from our inner psychological state, our world.
Love, may be a unifying process between us all.
Is love found in self-interest? How can it be, if self-interest, divides my interests from yours? Are you self-interested? Is love found in the incessantly talking mind, in the never ending flow of words of human consciousness? Is there not division, in this inner area of life? Is this not the ground of inner conflict to our lives, and does conflict not necessarily imply a division, and can a division, be anything to bring unity to life?
Our minds are minds of division, divisions, between thinker and thoughts, between observer and observed, functioning in divisive time, a remembered past, and a projected future, and a present of so little awareness or perception. Look and verify these words. Look at how humanity is actually living. It is easy to look, for you, are humanity. You can watch yourself and in watching yourself, you are seeing the same inner nature of every single human being. The content of our minds differs, because it is built on a foundation of recorded information from past experiences, and no one has experienced the very same in life, but the structure of mind is identical. Our consciousness of humanity, truly is one movement, divided as it is, in each one of us and between each one of us and in and of itself, yet it remains one.
One divided movement, waiting to find it’s unity.
You may think you ‘love’ another, a wife, a husband, children, friends or sexual partners, but when love is limited to one or two, can it really be love? Is attachment love, does love know the pain of separation, jealousy, envy and desires unmet?
Is love not more like a Sun, which shines on all, shines on the righteous, and the unrighteous alike?
We need love in this broken world, it is the one thing we have none of. We have tax havens and fortunes beyond belief, we have great historical or traditional self-importance, which lends to a great hypocrisy in life, yet human consciousness, as it stands, is unfit to hold love, for love is an energy of no divisions, and human consciousness, as it stands today, is a land of nothing but divisions.
Christians, Muslims, Jews, Brits, Americans, Israelis, Palestinians. Royalty, billionaire, and defenceless citizen to these. I could go on and on, into every section of human society. Into every minuscular division among the billions we find in our society, we live dividedly, because we have divided, in the very seat of our being, on the ground of thought itself. We find security living in these divisions, which destroy the quality of our lives. Which destroy, our lives themselves.
We cannot live in unity of mind, as long as our minds are all so divided. We cannot be whole when we are so broken apart. We will never find love in such a broken world. Nor such a broken mind. For love to ever exist, that which prevents it, which is division within and between us, must come to an end. Love, is born from a ground of absolute unity. From an undivided ground. In the whole of the mind, and the whole of life, for when all is cared for, the end result is 'holiness'. (whole-iness).
Love, surely, is to live in the same world, seeing the same world, with the same mind. To be one people, in the same world, with the same view. A mind, void of self, and so void, of divisive self interest. A mind, seeing clearly. Minds divided in conflicted battle, ever seeking to selfishly become more than they are this day, in self driven ambition, are destructive to life. Look to our broken world for confirmation of this fact, led by the most self interested and ambitious among us. Billionaires are rather unfit to lead a world of such abject poverty, for, what understanding can they possibly have of it?
And how might this deeply needed miracle take place, that our people, humanity, may at long last come to live within order, and peace, harmony, love and relationship? That we may, for once, find a life of beauty, worth living?
Might it be all we need to do is watch? Watch ourselves. Watch this broken world. And begin to learn, not from what another tells us, but from what we see? Watch the movement of our divisive inner nature, from which springs our every daily action, and so which is the ground of every division we find in life between each other.
It is all but impossible to love another, with the divided mind we inhabit today. For love, demands unity. And we have no unity, even in our thinking minds, the very root position of what we are, is divided in nature. Thinker and thought is a division.
An educated division. From an education delivered to our children by a divided group of social elitists. An education devised from a position of self interest. An education devised for the benefit of the traditional and historical long standing authority which seeks to maintain an unfair social advantage over the lives of others, as all divisons eternally do.
Might we come upon unity when we each see the same world? Might we see the same world, when we cease to be internally divided from one another?
The same world we all certainly live within? What divides us are our thoughts about each other and the world we live in, not the actuality. The actuality, is the same for each one of us.
Might we come to unity, when we see that each of us belongs to the very same life form, with the very same needs? The same mind. Might we come to unity, when the absolute stupidity of forever living to become something in time, a process of dire continuity, building from the dead past, and so maintaining divisions between our people, has ended, for is there anything more divisive, more selfish, more destructive, than a man spending his life in a process of accumulation, in battling competition, which is a subtle form of violence, to fulfil his very selfish self-driven ambitious inner educated nature?
Can an ambitious man with no eyes to even see this moment, by virtue of ever aiming into a future of greater accumulation, ever come to love?
Is this what Christ meant when he stated it easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven? Can a rich man hold love in his heart?
Living in a world of thirty-six trillion dollars in tax havens and simultaneously, a child dying every five seconds from starvation, and an utter lack of care, the answer to this question, is transparently apparent to see. Rich men, are incapable of love.
And rich men run this world.
Think about that a while. Heartless men full of self-interest, living behind impenetrable walls of selfishness with no eyes to even see this present moment, so determined are they in building and maintaining their isolated empires, for the benefit of one. For the continuity of ruling over others lives. Throwing the lives of innocent children to waste.
This is our world, our wonderful world of finding security in educated divisive competition, and so compassionless, uncaring divisions, eternally between each other.
Might we come to unity, when we no longer see ourselves, and our lives, as divided from the rest of life? When we no longer see our lives, as any more important than that of any other?
These are questions rarely asked among our people.
It is difficult indeed, to see a life, beyond divisions, in such a corrupted world.
Hello to all, I am a 60 year old man who has spent the best part of his life studying the teachings of J.Krishnamurti. My name is Henryk. I am rather unimportant, although what I talk about on these pages, has great importance. Particularly today, in this dark world, led by men of infinite wealth, unfortunately without the intelligence to match. My work here stands on the shoulders of that of J.Krishnamurti. Without this man's passion and great life understanding, this website would never have existed. His effect on my own life has been immeasurable. A man of infinite vision and wisdom, who spent over 60 years of his life travelling the world and discussing life and societal problems. Krishnamurti passed away in the 1980s. Anyone interested in the nature of discussion in the content of this site, will likely find great interest in the work of Krishnamurti. Hundreds of videos may be found on YouTube. There is a link above dedicated to his work to which new content is planned to be regularly added. The beauty of truth in life, is that it is identical for each one of us. Truth is the place we all come to meet in unity. And truth belongs to no man. Only pointless opinions, divisive, traditional, educated into and gathered by us, may be claimed as ownership. The change in our world so desperately needed this day, is within us, not external to our lives. All man's actions begin in the area of human thinking, it is this needs understood and brought to revolution. Thanks for taking the time to visit, a few posts are being added to the site weekly at the moment, when I find time. If you would like to support the work here, you can do so from the price of a cup of coffee each month, contributors are invited to online discussions. If you would like to contribute, our Patreon page may be found at the following address: www.patreon.com/rainbow_warriors.
