Consider: A spiritual view of the news  makes  funny. It is a long running

comedy of  bodies playing the conflict game. It is really hilarious and

boring in it’s repetition.

You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model. That makes the existing model obsolete.

R. Buckminster Fuller

Give up the quest for advantage and know contentment..

From ancient times all civilizations have had this concept of measurement. All their marvelous buildings were based on mathematical measurement.

Measurement is not only by the rule; measurement exists in the very brain: The passing of examinations from school, college, university- one’s way of living has become a series of calculated measurements:
the beautiful and the ugly, the noble and the ignoble- one’s whole set of values, the arguments that end in conclusions, the power of the people, the power of nations. Measurement has been necessary to man. And the brain, being conditioned to measurement, to comparison; tries to measure the immeasurable- measuring with words which cannot ever be measured… this comparison has brought a great many fears and sorrows.

We will explore life with this blog. Life was here before my body arrived and will be here when my body is gone. Life exists, continues and animates all. Our bodies come into being; they spend a bit of time here and leave. While here, we share Life. We never own it. We merely borrow Life for a bit.
How we use it is the question. The body is a machine operating in a world we create, by agreement. The body exists in tension between two extremes and is always in a duel with itself. This existence I call dualism.


The “absolute” in dualism is change. Change is constant, so all attempts to stop change are doomed. Yet being spiritual beings, living in duality, we constantly want to experience the known certainty of the absolute. So, in our dualistic confusion we create false “absolutes” as substitutes. For example, all beliefs are false absolutes. A belief is merely a group of opinions which we mistakenly declare to be factual.


This is the stuff of illusion.                                                                                                                 

” If you want to realize the truth, don’t be for or against; the struggle between good and evil is the primal disease of the mind.”

Seng-Ts’an

You live by symbols. You have made up names for everything you see. Each one becomes a separate entity, identified by its own name. By this you carve it out of unity. By this you designate its special attributes, and set it off from other things

Non-objective judgement pushes us backwards ( the past) and forward ( the future).  TNA offers us balance and the Now.

Although you are one Self, you experience yourself as two; as both good and evil, loving and hating, mind and body. This sense of being split into opposites induces feelings of acute and constant conflict, and leads to frantic attempts to reconcile the contradictory aspects of this self-perception.

Course in Miracles Lesson 96

 

“The point is not to separate the opposites ( good and evil) and make “positive progress,” but rather to unify and harmonize the opposites, both positive and negative, by discovering a ground which transcends and encompasses them both. And that ground, as we will soon see, is unity consciousness itself.

They said to him: “Shall we then, being children, enter the kingdom? Jesus said to them: When you make the two one, and when you make the inner as the outer, and the outer as the inner and the above as the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, then you shall enter the kingdom.”
