A guide to finding the truth

Personally ….i think Belief is but for the paltry…A seeker of the Truth must settle for nothing less. Many have witnessed ‘god’ as you call it - Saadhus, Swamis, Yogis and Munis…let me use the right word though.'God’ is a misnomer that does not relay the meaning of an omniscient entity. 

First, know that we are fractions of divinity - and the absolute being what it is by definition, it never changes it’s size, shape, nature or whatever (by definition it is without attribute - just pure consciousness) however many pieces you cut it into.So, we’re pretty much little divine beings caged in a human body. Caged? Why? Why such a great limitation of our true nature? Divine as we are, our ability to even see our true selves is hampered by limitations set by what is known as Karma. That is a topic in itself, and I shall deign to comment on it now.Alex Grey is a visionary but truly - for god, as a picture painted by medieval artists and Adamic fiction, does not exist. 

“I think I used to be a lot more 'spiritual’, whatever that means. And in that time: confident, aware, energetic, alive. These days I feel tired, alone, useless and old.” 

Why is that? Because back then, you were still seeking the Truth…now you’ve ceased to seek, and hence the lack of drive. The Truth is not obtained in a lifetime - it takes many - such is the nature of Karma. Continue to seek the Truth, and it shall indeed set you free. The Truth we seek is within us - and hence quite hard to experience.

One truth? Truth cannot be counted - it is an entity - more like an image - the image consists of several characters, backgrounds, colours - but is one subtle whole that contains within it many other whole entities…where can you count? you are not 'kept alive’ - you are the giver of life to the body in which you reside. The body/mind complex is 'kept alive’ by You. Creation is in your nature May you find Truth and in the bargain may you find Yourself 


Yes I i do believe in a supernatural force in any form - AS for Maya is a level - it is a parallel i reckon in my opinion. Maya is the age of vice …it is the period between the 4 stages of metamorphosis the world goes through. Sacred Geometry so to speak. the Entity does not do anything. It merely starts the process by waking up, and ends the process by going back to 'sleep’. This Entity is The Being - from which we all emanate. There is no Gandolf look-alike in 'heaven’ waiting to save our ass. Bingo!!! This being is the supreme Witness, as we all are. 


my opinion again would be the need to transcend the Human level and break the cycle of birth and rebirth in order to come to some sort of understanding of the truth and what you hold for real.
