The Answer to Oneself
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
– Max Planck, Theoretical physicist, Noble Prize winner.
The single most important cause for happiness is based on the quality of our relationships. This has been proven by a lifelong Harvard study, yet the importance of this knowledge seems to fade out in regards to how we live our lives today.
Having an authentic emotional connection was, and ever will be — vitally necessary to nurture and awaken every living creature out there.
We are all One, we are all connected in ways most of us would find mystical, practical and otherwise — completely disturbing. Modern science is on the verge of this, and what is even better— you can clearly feel this when you are at ease with yourself and the environment around you.
We may uncover this Oneness either through brilliance of our thinking or via complete inner stillness. One gives birth to study with external observations and empirical evidence, other — to meditation and spiritual insights.
Sadly enough, we fail to see the intrinsic connection between these two states due to their prevailing separation. Separation, which is governed by our minds in absolute and unshakable terms of logic — compromising the balance of our Spirit.
However, there is no one here to blame for this. Competition is on stage right now and it has been willingly sustained since we first discovered hunger for power and control. We are raised with this idea within our social and religious groups, families, companies, governments, and the list goes on to any conceivable form of human concept.
We stray further from God and separate from one another rewarded by false riches. We dwell in illusions and find comfort by surrounding ourselves with fear.
But if you’re sincere enough to admit it, you can clearly see that we only compete with ourselves — loosing so much time and energy along the way.
We loose moments of joy, love and happiness, moments that fuel Life. Moments that inspire us to become better human beings, moments that help us grow and help those in need around us. We loose people, we miss people, because the true fabric of life is lined with Love, not competition.
And that is exactly where duality stands strong. It gives us the understanding of what is truly important in Life. Because we are only able to compare and comprehend the opposing idea, insight or experience by taking the bitter medicine ourselves.
Gradually it all comes back together. It all comes back to You, and the world around you starts to shine and revel in its beauty. Forever and ever again.
