Pearls of Wisdom
Look around you, do you not see the patterns that are inherent in all of life, in all of your life. Life is filled with patterns, mathematically; structurally there is always some cyclical notion to the universe and life. Look at the movements of the planets in their orbits around our large sun, Sol. They continue to revolve around the sun in large elliptical orbits over and over again, even if those planets are destroyed over time by some unknown force new ones will always form and repeat the same actions, forever. Forest fires wreak havoc across vast expanses of trees, vegetation and land, however you will always find that life continues to thrive after the burning, the fire is almost as though a cleansing and after, life rebounds. The seasons move in much the same pattern, Spring is followed by Summer, Summer by Fall, Fall by Winter, Winter by Spring and so on, over and over again. Animals follow patterns as well, migrating along routes that not only they pass through but routes that their offspring and ancestors have or will have moved through.
Patterns are everywhere and they all speak of some cyclical notion that is inherent in our lives, we need to acknowledge that pattern and see it for what it is, the structure of life and the universe. When we investigate, explore and self-process this universal pattern it becomes a sense of comfort to us, it provides structure within what we think is our own little chaotic life. When we think deeply of this universal pattern of cyclical motion and then correlate that pattern to our own life we then begin to see its implications, that there is no death as we are taught as children, that things, ideas, concepts and activities repeat themselves over and over and over. Basically we find out that the life we are taught is a blatant LIE, that everything is built on the foundations of a twisted perception through the human lens. We then realize that we are living in an illusion that is constructed by society and further perpetuated by us and we are already tainted by the false notions of society to begin with, indeed there is even a pattern in this thought complex and how twisted is it that we continue to live in this constructed un-reality and we repeatedly call it real.
When we see those universal patterns, that the Earth provides food year after year to sustain us, that it provides material to build structures to house us in harsh climates and that it is there to teach us vital life lessons, the illusion that we live in is that there are people and corporations that control the natural resources and in controlling those natural resources they can make us pay for things that are given freely by the earth. Think about all the illusions that we live in, the corporate illusion, the religious illusion; the idea that paper and metal coin money is power and is needed for survival is ludicrous and perpetually sociopathic in a society that lives within that illusion.
The religious illusion is one of the most powerful; it preys on our fear of death and what may come after death, that we must align with some religious-minded structure if we are to be saved, and if we choose not to align ourselves with their beliefs we will not be able to enter the gates of heaven, paradise or that we may even burn in a lake of fire or roast in hell for not making that alignment or any of the other illusions that they feed us. Re-read the above paragraph a few times, it is an insane thought process and sadly most of us live in this insane thought process.
I recently looked on a map of the world via the internet and there was a very small circle around an area in the middle east centered on Jerusalem, this tiny outline of a circle was so small in comparison to the larger map that the heading above it almost smacked me in the face, it stated that everything the happen in the bible, the Qur'an and the Torah happened in that small circle. I immediately thought how many more circles were perhaps n that map so I engaged in a little experiment, I printed that map out and looked at different world religions and their geographical origins and drew a small circle just like the one that surrounded Jerusalem and some of the middle east, after just an hour of research and circle drawing there were so many circles on the map that it did not look like a map anymore, it was just a sheet of paper with too many circles. Too many circles, too many religions, which one is right then? Which one is the truth? The obvious answer is none of them; they are all man-made concepts and ideas set forth in a dogmatic structure.
Immediately the idea of a supermarket came to mind with each aisle being a continent on the earth with corresponding religions in each continent-aisle, so now you can either go shopping or not buy at all, your choice. Just remember in your choice that you’re not choosing absolute truth you’re choosing a product. The only absolute truth comes from within each and every person; I feel that I need to disclose my own personal religious system in that it might help you to find your own, I follow Shaferism, it’s a great religion, it states that I need to be the best I can be and to impact life is the least negative way possible and the best idea of all, it’s flexible and open to change. “WANT TO JOIN MY CHURCH; WE WILL CRUSADE ACROSS THE GLOBE TURNING ALL INFIDELS TO OUR WAY, THE BEST WAY”. Well if you just got excited for a moment, I am very sorry, unfortunately you can’t join; membership is strictly limited to only myself, follow no truth other than your own.
