Is Oneness another belief?
The short answer: Yes it is, as long as it is an intellectual matter; something that we can debate about, something that we could defend, give “our life for,” something to convince others, etc.
AND it is not. If this knowledge does not come from a thought, from an inference, from a deductive skill, but from the observation and feeling of it; that is when true intelligence emerges as recognizing something without the need to put it in dualistic thoughts and words.
Here is when the well-known phrase “The truth does not need to be proven,” comes. It shines by itself for those who are able to see it. There is no need to defend it, rationalize it; but not for lack of logical or reasoning skills; but simply because you either “get it,” or you don’t. 🙂 But still, whatever someone perceives as “truth,” is “the true” for them, for that goes according to their consciousness.
It is a matter of awareness, of consciousness, that is all.
Could we describe the color of the sky to someone who was born blind? Or someone who can see, but does not dare to look up above for fear of losing their own beliefs?
In the first case, to tell him: “Look; the color of the sky is the color located between violet and green, in the optical spectrum.”
If that doesn’t ring a bell to him, then an intellectual could say: “It is the light with a wavelength between 450-495 nanometers. Don’t you get it?” 🙂
In the second case, all we can do is to point upwards. Hopefully they will not believe that the finger is the thing to pursue.
Even with a brainy scientific description, there is no way that “that blue” could match the color of the sky. Is the color of the sky the same all the time? No. Nothing is static. Everything moves. Everything changes.
Poetic language based on feelings could come close but never close enough. That is why spirituality is closer to poetry than rigorous science. Feelings bring closeness. Thoughts, separate things.
“It is a celestial shade: soft enough to bring a smile in your lips and bright enough to lead your path in the day. The sky has moving visitors flying at a distance: the Sun, the Moon, the stars and the clouds. Their games of “hide and seek” will change the colors from a clear light to the absence of it. The color of the sky is light and darkness and in between, all the other dyes.”
It is important to recognize that we are dealing with dualistic language. In that type of language to make myself understood, avyakt7 needs to “take a side.” Obviously for an intellectual mind, taking a “side” means that there is a belief in that. Something to debate about.
How could be possible for avyakt7 to convey “oneness” without writing about it? But that does not mean that “oneness” is my ideology, my belief or that avyakt7 is copying other religions which believe in omnipresence. Avyakt7 is not defending something.
Thus, it is important not to take what avyakt7 is conveying as the “truth,” or as some special thing; but just to be open minded so, the message could be accepted.
Your own awareness, your own state of consciousness will do the rest.
Avyakt7’s experiences are just his experiences which do not apply to everyone.
Avyakt7 is catching more often his dualistic thoughts and his own beliefs and clearing up his mind from all that cloudy, rainy, foggy night of thoughts… and learning to see for the first time with his own light.
Thank you all for your uplifting comments! 🙂
