We have done some heavy lifting in my last four blog posts. Many have commented that the tenor of these posts have been different from my regular posts.
If you feel the same way, you are correct.
I have gone quite deep down the rabbit hole in these blogs. If you would like to refresh your memory, they are:
- Nothing Ails Your Body, Your Body is the Ailment, Part 1
- Nothing Ails Your Body, Your Body is the Ailment, Part 2
- A Mind-blowing Idea, Part 1
- A Mind-blowing Idea, Part 2
Ultimately, we all want the same thing. We want to be happy. We want to be free from suffering. And we want to be happy and free from suffering forever.
We strive and struggle and acquire to get to this stage. We accumulate wealth, pursue ‘success’, cultivate relationships and climb ladders of hierarchy.
We do not reflect that whatever we collect and achieve is in time and space where the moth doth eat and rust corrodes.
We have a model that there is ‘me’ and there is ‘the universe’ and the latter has many other people just like me. And it is my job, in this multiplicity, to get what ‘I’ want and to shape the universe to conform to ‘my’ needs.
We do not understand that, as long as there is duality, there will be conflict and suffering.
Eternal happiness is possible. The Kingdom of Heaven does exist.
But, to get there, you have to drop all notions of “I” and “me” and “mine”. And many sages have affirmed this and shown the way.
This journey does not appeal to everyone. Ram Dass remarked that most people do not want to escape from prison. They just want better food.
And so, I am creating a community of people explicitly interested in their journey of awakening. There will be exercises and programs to take you deeper into the rabbit hole.
And there will be blogs like the four listed above.
