8. WE WANT TO BE GODS

Precisely at this moment, while we read these words, there are people all over the world doing something.  Some are on their way to work and others on the way home from work.  Some are going to sleep while others are waking up.  Children are being born and people are dying.  Some are born to poor conditions, while others enjoy wealth.  Some die of diseases while others die of old age, are killed or die of starvation.  Australians receive summer while Scandinavians receive winter.  The earth rotates around itself on its journey through space like millions of other planets, suns and stars in countless galaxies.
This does not happen one after the other, but all at once.  Now, at this moment, this is all happening.

How are we to understand that which is behind all this, that which has an overview over all of this, and much more, happening at exactly the same moment?
We, who do not even have an overview of a few hours of our lives.

But that we cannot accept.  Do we?  We want to be great little gods.
It is not enough to live in harmony with ourselves, as nothing, knowing nothing.
We demand to understand, to know, and to be something.  We demand to be important, so we create ourselves gods to worship and praise, and thus we share the glory with these gods of ours.

Instead of understanding who and what we really are and live in harmony with it, which would be the only true religion, we create ourselves glory and wonders, so we can be something.
We believe that we are the center of the universe.  We are what all this is about.
We see ourselves as the crown of creation and around that rotates all our existence, round and round, again and again, repetition of the same.  It is in fact the only thing that matters to us.

It should not surprise us that the world is in the state it is, and our lives filled with strife and conflict, all this hatred, for all that is around us is first within us.  This is how we are.  This is what the crown of creation, the great god man is capable of creating.

While we demand to be important, to be something, then we maintain the status quo.  It is inevitable.
If we want to have peace in our lives, then we must see and understand, all through, that truth is life, and life we, and all.  And if it is one, then it is another and all one and the same.  It can never be apart.  Differentiation is not an option, it can never be an option.  So we might as well let go of our importance.

How are we to understand that which has an overview over all of this, and much more, happening at exactly the same moment?  There is a way, it is called to be it, and then it all, at this moment.
We must see ourselves as a whole.  Not only the whole hands, feet, head, hart, stomach, etc. but the whole life, united in one.
The truth can only be one, unchangeable and eternal, and the same today and forever.
The truth is life and life is we, and all.  That is all we need to understand, for that is all there is.
