The “Truth about Reality” is way beyond the mind so cannot be found though reading or hearing. All we gain through the senses is information from which we build concepts about the world. This is neither truth nor reality. At best, we have a working hypothesis.
Philosophy and spiritual teachings can offer pointers and maps, like a route to deeper truth. But they are not truth in themselves.
Reality can only be known directly, by being.
We can describe experiences of reality, but it’s always through the lens of this physiology. How much of it we embody. But what we communicate is only heard on the level of the listener.
Because of the vast difference between an individual person and totality, it takes time to prepare the vessel for that apparent individual to experience and then become the various aspects of totality.
Keep in mind totality is not just infinite consciousness but myriad creations including our own which contains many universes, each containing countless beings, worlds and experiences. Totality is all of that in all time simultaneously. Totality is also pure divinity beyond all that.
As a human, we can come to embody totality but because of the limits of our physiology, we cannot experience and express more than one aspect at a time. We’re Special Case, as Buckminster Fuller put it. Specialized we might say. Each of us emphasizes certain things.
Thus, we can say truth unfolds in progressive stages, much as puberty unfolds in steps and a child becomes an adult.
Pay attention to what is true for you here, now. Knowing and accepting what is here is far more productive than collecting concepts about a “better” reality. So often, we’re just building a construct to feel greater, more secure, or more in control. But that’s just ego, expanding its claim.
Better to have an open mind that allows new flavours of reality to be known.
Because it unfolds in stages, what is true will change many times for you. This is just like a teen sees the world differently than a toddler or an adult.
It can be useful to study and be familiar with the overall journey but don’t try to adopt a truth beyond your experience. As the saying goes, wishing doesn’t make it so.
Also beware the hazard of over-thinking it. Reading these posts to try to figure it all out is folly. When the words resonate – wonderful. But don’t try to make it so.
When the time comes in the unfolding, you will find your own truth, your own perspective of reality.
Ultimately, humans are limited in how much of totality they can embody. But we can unfold the depths of our being and come to know totality directly. This process is more profound than we can imagine.
Let the mind catch up later to give it words.
