WE NEED LOVE
I must begin by stating categorically that I am no Christian. I am no follower of any organised nor traditional religion. To this man, these are not religions, for they divide people, and division is an unholy state. The word 'holy' carries etymological meaning, related to the word 'whole', related to the completion 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 of division, I am no Christian, I do enjoy certain verses from many religious texts, including the Christian Bible, for they mirror a deep wisdom reflected in 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, Christians and not Christians alike, I wish to explore the words, and the meaning behind words, for without arriving at a meaning, words remain as useful as a street sign pointing to nothing.
“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, part of it anyway, in this post I wish to focus on two elements, 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. Our minds are divided between thinker and thought, past and future. The consciousness of humanity, is broken into billions of pieces, every one, self seeking, as though human life were totally unrelated, one man eternally divided from another.
Unity of mind, denies the ability to find our security in differing beliefs, in differing religions, for this is no unity. Unity of mind denies all divisions between us, in our society, how can we have 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, nor 'individually'.
And look to the so called 'individual' life, which is not individual at all - for we all live in the same demonic divisive inward structure of human consciousness, which is the ground of all self-interest and so all divisions in our lives.
Me, against you.
Here, we also find division between thinker and thought. Past and future, self and other.
Why have our churches and religious leaders not emphasised this tragedy? To do so, they would have to end their little enterprises, for they, as much as any, are deniers of a unity of mind between us all. Unity of mind within us and between us, is love. Division, as we live, as thought necessarily dictates we live, for to live in thoughts is to live in societal educated fragmentation, is to live divided from each other eternally. And so to eternally face the wars which divisions between humanity foster.
We have just found the cause of the past 6,000 wars, we have engaged in, in the past 6,000 years.
Divisions in our lives.
Brotherly love. Brotherly love. Love. Words - what do they point to?
We have lost all meaning of this word, "love" - we have brought our understanding of "love" down to the base level of physical attraction, attachment and sex. Love, for us, is a movement of desire and pleasure.
This, is not love.
Our love contains jealousy, which is a form of hatred for another. Clearly, we have lost not only the quality of love, but even the meaning of the word itself.
Love may what we need to find to heal our world. Love, may be the unifying process. Is love found in self-interest? Is love found anywhere in the talking, ever restless human mind, in the never ending flow of words and images within human consciousness?
It is not. Look and verify these words.
You may think you 'love' another, but when love is limited to one or two, can it be truly be love?
Is love not more like the Sun, which once ignited, shines on all? We need love, desperately in this broken world, yet human consciousness, as it stands, is unfit to hold love, for love is a land of no divisions, and human consciousness, as it stands today, is only a land of divisions.
Christians, Muslims, Jews, Brits, Americans, Israelis, Palestinians. I could go on and on, into every section of human society. 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, divided mind. For love to ever exist, that which prevents love, which are divisions within and between us, must come to an end.
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.
