The reality of Oneness has been tendered as Truth and will survive the delusional thinking of man which has propelled the world into a state of dualistic energy, where man has become entrapped by the illusion of his own creation.
Never will the archetype of the ONE be displaced for even in the temporariness of man’s forgetfulness, the One remains, to be remembered and resumed within the hearts and minds of men in the appropriateness of time. When all men come into remembrance, time will cease to exist. Time offers man a clutch with which to find his way back home. He attaches significance to all that is linear for he cannot yet comprehend eternity. To contemplate it invokes fear and uncertainty for it has no form and thus he blindly holds to his clutch and follows the sequence of his life not knowing that he must end up where he began and that eventually that which he calls time will lead him into timelessness.
I speak today of pluralism within dualism or plurality within duality. Plurality supports the dualistic imposed structural thinking and thereby condemns the singularity of the Law of Oneness. It engenders the notion that cultures disjointed precepts. It exemplifies individuality and promotes division in thought and being. It is a construct of the ego mind which reveres self to the exclusion of the whole.
Plurality further perpetuates the illusion and standardises mans’ thinking, so much so, that many lose their ability to know the truth which becomes jeopardised in the multiplicity of belief systems man has developed to support the illusion. Plurality polarises instead of unifies and codifies distinction and distinctiveness as it warps the thinking of man that he must seek and find himself through one of the multitudinous offerings conjured through religious doctrine and dogma, polytheism, mythology, philosophy, secularity, political derivatives, fiscal infrastructures and cults to name a few.
There are so many systems created for man to “try on for size” that he becomes a victim of his search for identity and empowerment. He wades through belief after belief hoping he will find one which fits comfortably and often he becomes a follower of many rather than a leader of ONE. He becomes a product of someone else’s thinking and creation rather than his own. As the sects proliferate, pluralism strikes a blow to the efforts of those who truly seek to lead men to a return to Oneness. Even those who appear to be on the path are often taken in by charlatans of spirituality and would-be sages and gurus. Many with abilities abuse such in their desire for aggrandisement and recognition. More and more man is being taught how to bridge the gap between the physical world and the spirit world; yet many develop and use their abilities for their own good rather than the highest good of all.
The variances resulting from plural concepts within the framework referred to above leads man in to a maze of separation, divided thought and practices. Regardless of his efforts or talk of unity, in spite of differences, the pull of superiority always wins for man is searching for his power and when his power as he conceives it within the physical world becomes threatened, he will fight to retain control at any cost. Man becomes what his ego makes him instead of the powerful and complete being that he is by, through and as the infinite spirit within.
The world of man becomes a world of many and the One of All and the All of One by-passes the consciousness of man. Perhaps man must learn his lessons through his pluralistic creations within the dualistic context before he can eventually realise and know the truth of One. Man does not realise that he perjures his own spirit when he denies its efficacy. But so be it for he will one day emerge from behind his tinted spectacles and with clarity see and know the truth. Only then will the illusion fall away and the spectrum shrink that the One may prevail.
What appears to be the world is an illusion and therefore mans’ search for himself within the illusion will always prove elusive. What is real will never appear for it will always be there, never to be created, existing and being, waiting incognito for man to find and reveal his true name- One, Infinity, Eternity, Light.
