I’ll Ride With You

I’ll Ride With You

Ill-ride-with-you

Yesterday I was so inspired to see Australia come together after a tragedy. Today I am devastated to wake up and hear the news about Pakistan.

The hashtag #illridewithyou was all over Twitter yesterday, after the hostage situation in Australia ended. It was meant to show that even though it was Muslim extremists perpetrating in the attack, that people were still willing to ride with Muslim’s dressed in traditional garb on public transportation.

Something about this inspired me, and made me think of Rosa Parks refusing to sit at the back of a bus during the civil rights movement in America.

I was so proud of Australia, and the rest of the world that took up support for a group of people that is generally discriminated against. Then I found out about this attack today, and my faith in humanity diminished…

“Behold but One in all things; it is the second that leads you astray.”

-Kabir

You have been warned—part two of this blog may lead you astray. If you haven’t read part one yet, I will try to not make that a prerequisite, but it wouldn’t hurt to go read that one now.

Oneness: Part 1

As I discussed there, Oneness is the ultimate Truth. It only appears as if there is a multitude of forms. We are all One, and if you want to call that the Tao, God, Source, the name makes no difference.

“The Tao gives birth to One.
One gives birth to Two.
Two gives birth to Three.
Three gives birth to all things.

Ordinary men hate solitude.
But the Master makes use of it,
Embracing his aloneness, realizing
He is one with the whole universe.”
-Lao Tzu

All things are One, there is no separation between anything you perceive. This may seem counterintuitive, especially considering there appears to be a multiplicity of different things.

This is only relatively true, however, and is not the absolute Truth. Relative truth is wonderful for everyday activities, but for those philosophically inclined wanting to know the deeper truths, this is an important lesson to learn.

The Time is Now

The Time is Now

There is no such thing as time. The future is never going to happen, and the past isn’t what you think it was.

Perhaps this sounds like an absurd argument to be making, or maybe you have begun to accept this premise. Time only exists in this moment, the now, and there will be no time when it is not the present.

I often hear these terms thrown around rather haphazardly, and I wanted to clarify what my understanding of “soul groups,” “soul mates,” and “soul twins” are.

Perhaps by just hearing these terms you already have an intuitive understanding of what they mean. It is actually quite logical, and there is a hierarchy in the terms.

Thanks for continuing to visit this blog! I realize I haven’t made a posting in quite a while – a month or so – but I have no intention of quitting. Unfortunately, I have been extremely busy with a number of projects I am working on, and have been forced to take a hiatus from blogging. I am starting my return, however, so please don’t despair and lose hope!
