THE PATH AND THE WORLD
Aug 15, 2006 07:29 AM
An interesting dialogue below, between John and Marie.
There has been a series of fascinating possible interpretations as to the world events in general, since September 2001.
Yet, as we look at the world scenario today, it seems that there often are more things concealed than enlightened; more smoke than light -- and sometimes, like in 9/11 or recently in Lebanon, lots of physical and not metaphorical smoke.
Side by side with the Terror and the Wars, there is another war made of rumours, fancies, rumour, gossips. Propaganda efforts ( oftentimes subliminal ) are rampant.
That reminds me of an old Taoist axiom.
Taoism says that conventional people get too much involved with speculations about facts, while the "man conscious of his Original Nature" prefers sticking to principles.
In our case, principles like human rights, democracy, truthfulness, unity within diversity, will do.
This general idea in Taoism is closely related with an also ancient Pythagorean principle -- that of the Music of Spheres and vibration rates.
Manly P. Hall said in one of his talks decades ago that for the Pythagoreans there were no "persons" -- there were but vibrational patterns, which are the result of our past karma and the seeds of our future karma.
That means that one person is indeed a collection of vibrations, in his or her own heart, brain, cells, emotions, etc.
And the key to stick to the right kind of vibration is, then to stick to correct universal principles and patterns.
Islam has in itself the principles and vibration rates of Theosophy or Esoteric Wisdom, just as Judaism does. This must be stimulated.
Al Qaedism and other forms of intolerance, violence and disrespect for life and for the sense of unity-in-diversity are also vibration patterns.
Real wisdom includes being aware of patterns, and taking part in a conscious way of the struggle which is happening right now about the future of our civilization.
Uncondicional brotherhood and truthfulness, on one hand ; and blind hatred, fear and suspicions about everything that is generous, on the other hand ; these seem to be the two ofthe main roads ahead now, for those who still have to choose.
Hatred, insincerity and distrust seems to be the wide and easy "Path" to follow; but there is still a small, narrow, steep inner Path upward...
And perhaps all of us must regularly re-examine and renew our main decisions in life.
Best regards, Carlos.

Mind you, I'm just speculating: Apparently Michael Moore has found out that there was a large gold deposit in the World Trade Centre, but that it was removed shortly before the planes crashed into the towers. According to that story, Moore is now hiding from government agents who want to shut him up about that. Any comment? Then there was the Nexus article about curious inconsistencies in the 9/11 events. One example from that article: a photo of the Pentagon crash site shows one hole in the wall of the Pentagon, but nothing in the photo shows damage on both sides of the hole that would have been (or should have been?) caused by the engines on the wings of the plane. I was wondering if that photo appeared in any mainstream newspapers.
