Truth is alive and well in all of us, but we fail to see it because it is concealed in the nothingness that is the ALL. Everything and nothing at all are just words to explain the unexplainable. Our conception of the ALL is impossible for the body mind to fathom, but the heart mind can clearly see it. Look within and in the silence of the nothing there is clarity. It is the truth that you will find in the last place we look.
Where we are and when we find that which is we will know that it was with us all along. It is our beliefs that the body mind has created that keeps us from seeing the truth that lies within. This is the true state of being, the natural self that lies within, wanting and waiting to awaken from the altered state the body mind creates. The false self, the one the ego tries to push off on us as reality that makes us believe it is reality, but there are too many holes in it when you look upon it with an open mind.
To start with, there is one God and that God is everywhere and everything, meaning you are God and God is you. God is not somewhere off in the distance looking down upon us, but rather here, there and everywhere. All things are one in the truth and the existence that is without separation, without division. The rock is me, the tree and the grass are one. They know not of this altered state the ego creates.
Identifying with the ego self keeps us apart. All the things we identify ourselves to be are merely roles and not the true self, the higher self. Forget the beliefs that separate us and forge into the oneness that is reality. Those beliefs only keep us from discovering the truth and religions are the worst offenders of them all.
This belief and that belief make us strangers rather than the oneness that unites us under the umbrella that is the ALL. Keep to your petty beliefs if you want to stay unconscious or let them go to be that which you want to be. Freedom is what you receive when you leave the body mind beliefs behind. Wake up to reality. Wake up to truth.
