Atheist II

“Beware of the half truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.” ~Unknown

A few days ago I had a interesting debate with a couple of Atheists about the existence of God and religion. They shared limited points of view in which some were valid arguments but only half truths. From what I could tell, they didn’t believe in the Bible either, because to them the things in the Bible are inconsistent and therefore false. They have a point; however, they do also have a Bible of their own called a ‘dictionary,’ which they believe that everything stated within a dictionary is true. That is no different than the religious believers that reference the Bible to reenforce their claim. They have also failed to understand the study of etymology, which is the study of the changes in historical linguistics and the derivation or origin of a word especially as manifested in individual words. For example the  word ‘apocalypse’ is defined in the dictionary as, ‘any universal or widespread destruction or disaster: the apocalypse of nuclear war. A prophetic revelation, especially concerning a cataclysm in which the forces of good permanently triumph over the forces of evil. Simply put, as understood by many, as the end of the world.’ However, the real meaning of the word apocalypse is derived from the Greek word ‘Apokalypsis’ which simply means, ‘to uncover or reveal.’ Not the end of the world. That shows an inconsistency in the dictionary. The list of inconsistent definitions with  their true meaning goes on. I would like to share my debate in which you are free to perceive.


It all began with the picture to the left.

Atheist 1: We’re not angry. What makes us angry is that you can force your beliefs on the rest of us through law, and that you can somehow claim to be more moral than atheists when you believe in a God , who in the Bible alone, apparently killed more people than Satan. A God who would throw an atheist like me into hell regardless if we lived good lives or not, but  let a rapist and killer of children into heaven because he said he was sorry. That’s the s#!t we don’t like. We don’t hate your God. That would make us as delusional as you. A=You say atheism depends on the idea of God. With that same logic, you might as well claim that Zeus and Bigfoot must be real, since there are many people who don’t believe in either of them.

PerceptiveTruth: Nobody is forcing anything on you, it is not the Bible nor God that killed more people than your mythological figure known as Satan. What killed and continues to kill innocent people is an ignorance that is no different than yours. Atheism and religion are both mistakes, as God has no religion.Atheism is a fanatical religion as any other. Where do you get the ‘Idea’ of God from? Think about that for a minute?

Atheist 1: Oh so I suppose it’s Satan then who flooded the world but saved Noah in the Bible? And no it’s really not. You need to buy a dictionary and look up the definition of religion and atheism. It clearly shows that atheism is not a religion. The same place that I get the idea of Zeus and unicorns, from myths.

PerceptiveTruth: The only true atheists are animals, because they do not have the mental capacity to understand the concept of God. But somehow you were born human, and have the innate ability to ponder on the existence of God. Just because you cannot see something within the limits of your five senses does not mean it doesn’t exist. In religion, which no different than yours, there was the invention of the devil so you can blame someone else, rather than look at yourself. God does not exist as a deity, God exist as consciousness.

Atheist 1: Religion is a system of beliefs. Atheism the lack of beliefs. By definition, atheism is not a religion. I don’t know how many times I have to say this. If you want to claim a pantheist view of God rather than a personal one, that’s all fine and good. At least have your definitions straight.

PerceptiveTruth: Believing that you have ‘no beliefs’ is a belief within itself. Atheists even use a symbol like any other religion. So yes, atheism is a religion.


Atheist 2: You’ve redefined the words with an expectation that everyone else accepts your new found definition. Here’s a handout: religion, is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. An atheist is a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being. Where I ask, is any of the former aforementioned definition found in being atheist? You have created a fallacy by redefining the words and thus fail within the discussion, no?

PerceptiveTruth: I have only proven what can be proven. According to your definition, an atheist is a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being. The keyword is ‘denies,’ self denial is not truth. Besides it is psychologically impossible to question that which does not exist. If God does not exist? What do you oppose? Atheism is 100% dependent on the existence of God, like animal rights activist are dependent on animal cruelty. God does not exist as a deity, as many religions like your own believe. God exists as consciousness, you and everything exists within God, as God exists within you. But to answer your question, the only fallacy is within what you cannot see or comprehend. Where you ask? In your devotional and ritual observances to oppose that which exist only within your mind. No different than any other form of religion just atheism is the extreme opposite. Like hot is the opposite extreme of cold. Which both are merely expressions of temperature, as Christianity and Atheism are both expressions of God.

Atheist 2: Aside from your position about God as that’s not in question, you have made a claim that atheism is a religion, correct? If it is,then by common definition it is required to have certain components. A: belief in a supernatural agency. B: ritualistic practices. C: observances. What are the those three components in atheism? This is an unavoidable question that must be answered with precision to prove your claim. If unable, then the fallacy is as stated, you’ve redefined the word, which is dishonest to the conversation. Religion is to theism as building model planes is to hobbies. By choosing not to build model planes does not make one a hobbyist, does it?

PerceptiveTruth: A: Your atheist religion is dependent on the existence, belief or idea of God. B: your ritualistic practice to relentlessly oppose any beliefs that are different than yours, if they don’t coincide with your religious views C: your very actions of being here discussing the topic of God or religion is your observance. D: the use of a symbol to identify your beliefs, or religion. As Catholics use a cross. You see, it is you that has come here. I understand you’re also looking for answers about the mystery or should I say paradox of God.

Atheist 2: You failed again. If I take your logic, I can apply it to any discussion I have about any topic and it’s then religious and that’s a preposterous notion. You should reserve that for your philosophy 101 course for further examination. Having a discussion about women’s rights on a regular basis is not ritualistic nor my discussions about the falsehoods of religion. And choosing to call you on your disposition incorrect is not an observance of anything other than engaging in a conversation about your lack of understanding for common definitions. Ritual: an established or prescribed procedure for a religious or other rite. Now reference the definition religion, you fail to equate the words you use with their correct definition. The fundamental need to be religious is a belief in God. Animals have no religious values. Animals thus are atheists. An amoeba has no religious value and thus are atheists. Neither have a concept for God and thus, are atheists. Their very existence has no God, no religion and yet are atheists. Much like that recent adage about not collecting stamps is a hobby, such is atheism. And when did I infer I was looking for answers about God? Sir, I have walked your path and many like it and none suffice answers for real-world questions and real-world problems. Answers are in logic and reason, not fairy tales and superstition. I look forward to your response, though will no longer engage in this conversation. You and I have different ways of defining words. I tend to be old-fashioned and use the dictionary. You, seemingly make them up to fit your needs and drive points which, as stated before, is dishonest to the conversation.


PerceptiveTruth: First you have never walked my path, only your own. If you have walked my path we would not be having this conversation, which I enjoy. If in your belief, I failed, it is simply due to the fact that your cognitive dissonance, look that up if you wish. One aspect about philosophy is that the same argument can be applied to many different concepts and yet remain true. The methods in which you use to practice your religion of atheism is seen in what you’re doing this very instant. All religions practice their beliefs in different ways, this is how you practice yours. I’m only willing to participate with you because you have more questions than answers. Something must be within you to keep you coming back? There is something within the human mind which allows us to ponder the existence of God, all other species cannot do that, they do not have the mental capacity to understand the concept of God. But you are human and you do have the inborn innate ability to think about God. Religion is manmade, like atheism is manmade. It was once believed that the world was flat and that Earth was the center of the universe, but now we see that it’s not so. Perhaps if you were born in those times you would also believe the same? You see, as I’ve said before, atheism is dependent on God for it’s own existence, as animal rights is dependent on animal cruelty. Maybe atheists are merely the missing link between the modern day human and the old-fashioned Neanderthal because the Neanderthal once was equal to all the other animals on earth and could not understand the concept of the universal mind also known as God. What then separates you from an amoeba? I guess not much. Believe as you wish, after all it is you that comes to me. However, you do display symptoms of a neurotic, and a neurosis is a secret you don’t know you’re keeping. as Carl Jung once said.

“Neurosis is the suffering of a soul which has not discovered its meaning.”

The definition of ‘ritual’ in Psychiatry is, a specific act, as hand-washing, performed repetitively to a pathological degree, occurring as a common symptom of obsessive-compulsive neurosis. Interesting. You seem to be doing the same thing. I think I just saved you a visit to the doctor. But I must admit I did like your analogy about not collecting stamps. However, it still does not mean that stamps do not exist.

She then returns the following day.

Atheist 2: Isn’t this conversation about the definition of the word religion? I have yet to discuss the existence of God with you. I am merely discussing your gross misrepresentation and definition of the word religion. We agree stamps exist. Though is not collecting them a hobby? Is not playing football a sport? Is loving music but not playing it make you a musician? See, I have offered you evidence that is contrary to your reality. Not my opinion, but a fact about the definition of religion. It requires a belief in super natural agencies. Atheists do no believe in supernatural agencies therefore it can not be a religion. As much as you want it to be, it simply can not by today’s definition. Moving onward, my discussion is simply about the definition of religion and you have yet to show evidence of how atheism is somehow religious. Aside from inferring one must have the other to exist, that is not evidence. Again, religion is, a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies. Atheism has no belief in supernatural agency. Nor does being an atheist have a concern about the nature of existence. It is simply defined as, a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings. The definition alone exempts itself from religion. Theism, deism, poly theism, atheism, none are religions just simply philosophical arguments about God.

PerceptiveTruth: Hello, my atheist friend. I see you’re back. Again, a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of God is denial. Remember the key word ‘denies’ from your definition? Denial does not signify exemption. However, I must say I like your points, about music, playing football, or collecting stamps. But isn’t playing or loving music, playing football or collecting stamps something that can only be performed and understood by humans? I think yes. The concept of God is no different. However, there are many who choose not to play or love music, not play football or not collect stamps. But the point is that those people, do not form into a group, like atheists, and give themselves a title and a symbol and try to discredit, pester, or ridicule those who play or love music, play football or collect stamps. For example, there are many people who don’t like or eat McDonald’s, but they also don’t form into a group and call themselves atheists and pretend that McDonald’s does not exist, then pester, discredit or ridicule those who eat at a McDonald’s. Isn’t a hobby of any kind a form of religion which makes people enthusiasts? The definition of ‘enthusiasts’ is 1. a person who is filled with enthusiasm for some principle, pursuit,etc.; a person of ardent zeal: a sports enthusiast. 2. a religious visionary or fanatic. And yes fanatic atheist fit into this category. By forming into a religion of atheists, in which God is necessary, does not in no way remove the existence of God. Your believing or not believing in God has no effect on its existence, nor on its consequences to you. Just as a refusal to believe in the ocean would not prevent you from drowning. Here are some definitions of the word religion. Since you like to use it, but choose to ignore the definitions that are not convenient to your argument, which makes you a typical atheist.

1. A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature,and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances,and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. Which I have already answered, but was dismissed without debate and simply state that I failed? How convenient. Did you look up ‘cognitive dissonance?’ in the dictionary?

2. A specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: I believe this defines atheism well.

3. The body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices: as I’ve said before by believing you have ‘no beliefs’ is a belief within itself.

4. Something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience: to make a religion of fighting prejudice. to acquire a deep conviction of the validity of religious beliefs and practices.

You see ,you have only given me one definition of “religion,” but conveniently left the others out. You say that atheists do not believe in supernatural agencies therefore it cannot be religious. That’s just as credulous as saying something is true because it’s in the Bible? And yes, I have inferred that you must have one to have the other , which you seem to agree upon. It is merely the universal law of duality, black is to white, as up is to down, left is to right, inside to outside, good is to bad, which is within your mind, as atheism is to God. You say atheists have no concern over the nature of existence? You must be the advocate for all atheists? If you really want to talk facts, do an online search for “the double slit experiment.”

Atheist 2: I am using definition 1 from the dictionary. It is the most common definition for any given word. Any definition following is an addition to; society has changed it’s usage or the context in which the word used, wheter it be adjective or noun slightly changes the meaning. I am not ignoring those definitions out of convenience. The nature of existence is something virtually everyone ponders, so I will concede purely based in the broad approach that can be taken. But being an atheist does not require the existence of god. That notion is foolish. Frankly, the word should not exist. There is no word to describe a person who does not collect stamps, or play sports. They just simply are, and that is atheism. I didn’t dismiss without debate your attempt to show example of each. They were futile, which is always the evidence in debates of these kind. You showed a subjective view point that was totally inaccurate to reality. If one has to have a belief in god to be religious, how does not believing in the existence make one religious? That is asinine. Just because, as you claim, god must exist to be atheist, still doesn’t make an atheist a believer in deity. God’s existence is completely irrelevant. All being said, you, sir, are religious then as well, but you seem to be quite against that notion. Let us process with an understanding that we both know and understand all terms, and theories used within our conversation. For all I know you are an astrophysicist or a douce capable of using Google to search cool terms, or somewhere in between. As could be me. I think we have to agree we both can either use Google or use a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders if needed. As a side note, I don’t debate a God or God’s existence or lack thereof, as it is pointless.

PerceptiveTruth: This conversation can very well be as infinite as God itself. And I don’t know if I should be flattered that you called me an astrophysicist, but thank you anyway. I just simply use what has been given to me, which is the ability to think. Have you ever wondered where thoughts come from? Many will say that thoughts come from the brain; however, it cannot be the brain because the brain including all physical matter, and the entire infinite universe is a projection of itself. Now doesn’t that sound like God to you? It exists within you, as you exist within it. As I’ve said before, God does not exist as a deity, God exists as consciousness. I am a believer in all religions, including atheism but I’m a follower of none. My religion is truth, which is not limited by limits and is as unlimited as God. The flaw in human thought is the belief that ‘something’ has to be one thing or the other. And you say that my attempt to show an example of each was futile. And I say, just as futile as teaching the concept of two plus two to a cat. Perhaps your mind is not that evolved even though I do believe you have the capacity. The facts do not cease to exist because they’re ignored. And the word God does happen to exist in the dictionary, and there is a word for that describes a person who does not collect stamps, or play sports, they are called prohibitionists, which is synonymous with abstinence. However, just the way the religious refer to the bible to prove their arguments, atheist do the same, they refer to the atheist Bible known as a dictionary to also attempt to prove their argument. It’s kind of clever, but yet sneaky since the dictionary is blindly accepted by all. Likewise, atheists fail to understand etymology which is the study of linguistics and the origination of words. Simply put as the evolution of language. Believe me, I don’t disagree with aspects of atheism but I don’t agree with it completely either, as with any other religion. And the similarity of all limited religions, including atheism is the use of the half truth. Believe me I’ve been called atheist by the religious and religious by the atheists. In which they are both correct. You see, God itself becomes its own final obstruction to the discovery of God. How can the finite mind define that which is infinite. It can’t. And there lies the paradox of God and the infinite argument of the idea of God.

If you want to understand the universe, study the atom, if you want to understand God, you must look within yourself.

And many atheists and the religious of other religions have failed to do this. As Gandhi said,

“Turn the spotlight inward.”

Einstein’s equation of E=mc2 states that all matter is energy, that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed. God is no different. God cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed. It is a fact that we’re all made of atoms. And the atom is a microcosm of a solar system in which the atom is 99.999999999999% empty space. So that makes you and me and the entire universe an imagination of ourselves. And as weird as that might sound is the nature of reality.

And this debate ended with my atheist friend conceding or agreeing that God does exist. The entire infinite universe is permeated with an infinite thinking substance. We are literally inside an ocean of thinking stuff. This entire infinite substance is merely a projection of what’s within your mind. As said before you exist within God, as God exist within you.

Our Planet Earth

Hemos creado divisiones entre nosotros y nuestro planeta

“You forget that the fruits belong to all and that the land belongs to no one.” ~Rousseau

Earth, our home. It has been here for 4.54 billion years and will probably be here a lot longer after our species is gone. However, in the time being we are merely the temporary tenants of our planet.

Our species being a thinking and reasoning species is the steward of the land. But our dominant nature has lead us to create fictitious borders and divisions of our planet. And our egos have lead us to falsely believe that we can possess what cannot be possessed and everything that has been created in our world. It is the false belief of separation that leads us to believe that we are separate from everything and all creation, when all creation is part of us already.

“God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.” ~Jacques Deval

We are the most intelligent species of our planet and yet the most naive. We have damaged our world for the fictitious concept of money or profit. Without realizing that we are only harming ourselves, humanity has given very little thought to the connection to our planet and we have scarred our world with the fires of war and greed. We have conquered other human races amongst each other and all the other species but yet have still not figured out how to conquer ourselves. Humans are the only species on the planet that attacks and destroys for the purpose of ambition, power, honor, fame, or wealth. We are a juvenile species of perpetual immaturity. The future of our planet is in our hands, dependent on our level of consciousness. Wake up!

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” ~Albert Einstein

What is time? If you think deeply about the concept of time, it becomes a paradox and a mystery within itself. Does the concept of time really exist? Or is time simply a construct of the mind? Time exists both as a construct of the mind in the infinite form and it exists in finite form as a measurement of motion within a quantitative but infinite universe. That is because the entire infinite universe is merely what exists within the mind, hence revealing the paradox of time. Time is intangible, it is not something you can posses and neither does it posses you, but it’s us that are possessed and enslaved by our own ideas of time. Only through time is how “I am” exists. With time we experience life constantly, persistently repeating itself in a different forms known as the present.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” ~Unknown

It is the belief that our universe is 13.77 billion years old. That is not the age of the universe, as infinity has no beginning and no end. Infinity always was and always will be. It is timeless, it is the Universal Mind also known as God. However, what did happen 13.77 billion years ago was YOU! You, reading this right now! The creation of your soul occurred 13.77 billion years ago. You were the big bang. Everything that exists in the quantitative universe is only a projection of what is within our minds. From the moment of the big bang, to the expansion of the universe to the creation of galaxies and solar systems, they exist within you. Same with the creation of earth, to the creation of man, all of nature, all history known and unknown, all of the wars, all religions. Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, the knowledge of the wisest, all of the saints and sinners of our planet have existed within YOU! You happened 13.77 billion years ago within infinity, so in our essence there is something inside us that is timeless, our infinite universe is merely a microcosm of God, as we do not exist inside time, we are time.

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” ~Mark Twain

Continued from the post: Belief

Everything that exists in our physical, material world once existed in the mind of a human being. It is simply called ‘imagination.’ It is the beginning of all the cause and effect in reality, as reality is merely the world of effects and the physical extension of the spiritual world. It is through imagination that the greatest inventions of mankind have been discovered. For example, the theoretical work of Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla, who best known for his contributions to the design of the modern electrical alternating current (AC), is the result of his imagination. His work then went on to influence the invention of the radio and x-rays.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” ~Nikola Tesla

It is through the imagination that mankind has discovered many of our universe’s mysteries, which are actually hiding in plain sight ,such as gravity, to the more seemingly complex as relativity, as formulated by Albert Einstein

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” ~Albert Einstein

All of existence, our entire universe, all of our history and our knowledge are all due to something inside of the human mind. The human mind is like a radio receiver accessing information from the universal mind also known as God. And like the radio, the mind becomes useless without the signal of imagination. However, thinking is the conscious act of imagination. So when we think or imagine, is it really our own thoughts of our own creation? Or did we tap into the images given to us by the universal mind?

But when it comes to our imagined physical universe, it is measurable, it is the world of quantity, the world of reason, and the reality of limits and it is as malleable like potters clay with the power of intention. However, the world of imagination is boundless, it is the world of nonsense, and the world of infinity, it is the cause of our present, our future, and our reality. Open your mind.

“The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.” ~Carl Jung

“We’re making it up. The world, the universe, life, reality. Especially reality.” ~Tony Robbins

A belief is only a chronic and repetitive pattern of thought. It is nothing more than thoughts we continue to think, over and over again. We are prisoners of our own minds, of our own beliefs, and many are unaware how beliefs create limits in our reality. It is through our beliefs that we create our reality and our individual beliefs are what contributes to the collective matrix as whole.

“All our knowledge has its origin in our perceptions.” ~Leonardo Da Vinci

What do you believe? Why do you believe what you believe? Do you believe that you are your name, your body, do you believe in your religion? Do you believe in the existence of an external God? When God is found within you? However, how can you believe in God? When by the simple act of believing in God limits what is unlimited. The belief in God becomes it’s own final obstruction to the discovery of the Universal Mind. A collective reality is an illusion, nothing in our physical world is real, it is only a mirror of what is within our subconscious minds. Perhaps this is what Jesus meant when he said:

“My kingdom is not of this world.”


If you look deep into the physical nature of our bodies you will find cells and molecules. If you go further you will find different combinations of atoms. Go further and you will find electrons, protons and neutrons. Again, go even further and you will find empty space. All of this emptiness is happening within our minds. Even in our brains, which is where we believe that the mind resides, is not real. It is a construct of the mind itself. However, no matter how empty our physical reality is, an individual reality is not an illusion but an abstraction of an internal belief that exist within us. It is what we pull out of it, and we can abstract only what we become aware of, reflected back to us like a mirror as physical reality. It is God’s way of becoming self aware through you and me. Our beliefs only serve to keep us from thinking that we’re not insane. Remember you cannot spell the word ‘belief’ without the word ‘lie’.

“I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.” ~Bertrand Russell

“If you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, don’t blame the mirror. If you look at the world and don’t like what you see, don’t blame the world.”

“Living is easy with eyes closed; misunderstanding all you see.” ~John Lennon


“People only see what they are prepared to see.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

People today seem to be very preoccupied with a reality that only exists within their own minds, which causes cognitive blindness. In a way, that also makes people fail to perceive the reality that actually exists around them and causes a lack of appreciation of people, life and reality. We miss opportunities and don’t even realize it. Instead of being concerned about the reality or time that iss ‘now,’ we limit our minds by our own ideas and pre-occupy ourselves with the past and the future. Take for instance, if you’re looking for that perfect partner, you will fail to recognize him or her even if that person was standing right in front of you, especially if that person is rare. Not only is being rare valuable, but it also becomes unrecognizable. And all due to the preconceived and self imposed limits we have placed on our own minds. Your perception about a thing is what creates your idea about it. For example, Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper for “lacking imagination” and “having no original ideas.” The Beatles were rejected by Decca Recording Studios, who said “We don’t like their sound, they have no future in show business.” Albert Einstein’s school teachers believed he was mentally slow and said “He would never amount to much.” These beliefs came to be by the self imposed ideas while simultaneously being preoccupied with a limited reality within their own minds. The eyes and ears cannot see or hear what the mind is not ready to understand. Would you be able to recognize greatness if it was standing beside you?

The story below, written by Josh Nonnenmoc, is another great example on this topic.

“A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

Joshua Bell

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?”

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Gandhi

There are two ways of viewing forgiveness, and it requires the utmost truthfulness and honesty within ourselves. For example, it is easier to forgive others for being wrong, than to forgive them for being right. Forgiveness is about the acceptance of conditions for what they are. It is the release of any attachments of the past or expectations of the future. As expectations are the beginning of all resentments. Forgiveness is not merely an act of words, of speaking ‘forgiveness’ but it’s an internal act of choosing to release others and yourself. Forgiveness is what ends the vicious cycle of karma. For as long as we fight or ignore ‘what is’ we’ll never learn to forgive and much less ever learn the true meaning of love. Forgiveness is what tells the infinite mind, also known as God, that you have learned your life’s lesson through your inner being, also known as your soul. Many times, our pride and self-deceit of the ego, and the self image of being a victim are what prevent many from forgiving or being forgiven. Unforgivingness is what creates indifference and separation, as forgiveness has nothing to do with dismissing another for his mistakes. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the affliction of being a victim. If you cannot forgive, you are living in an illusion created by your mind, which is called the ‘past’ and no longer exists in this reality that we call ‘now.’ It only exists within your mind, while infecting your heart. So where is the enemy? Is it that person that failed you? Or an incident of the past? Or is your enemy simply an aspect of your own thinking? Without forgiveness we become prisoners of our own ideas.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and to realize that the prisoner was you.” ~Lewis B. Smedes

Many search the world for love, but if they have not learned to forgive they will never find love or peace within their hearts. We are human, and by human nature we make mistakes, we live in a universe that is perfectly imperfect. And we are merely a microcosmic replica of our perfectly imperfect universe. If everything were perfect, nothing would ever change. Mistakes are an essential ingredient to the learning process. They are for the purpose of our own growth and evolution. Forgiveness is essential to the recognition that we have learned. Forgiveness is how we speak without words with divinity or God.

“To err is human, to forgive, devine.” ~Alexander Pope

We are here incarnated to learn forgiveness, to be kind, and to be honest. We are here to find happiness, to do good, and to do the best we can. I ask you to look within yourself and forgive yourself of your own thinking so that we may forgive others. How can you ever love if you have not learned to forgive? As said by Mother Teresa:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.” ~Sri Chinmoy

Neurosis II

Neurosis II

“Neurosis is always a substitute for legitimate suffering.” ~Carl Gustav Jung

Continued from this post: neurosis.

The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said,

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Our world is in a similar situation within the first and second stage of truth. Inner truth is either ridiculed, ignored, denied or violently opposed. The neurotic will fight harder to protect its condition. It will ridicule, ignore, deny and oppose that which has been placed before him physically to be conquered within. Many will fight physically and try to bring that which exists in their physical world into the submission of their will. Once they achieve their goals they still remain unhappy, and continue to search outwardly destroying everything like a black hole devouring everything within its path. The neurosis persists and continues due to the failure to search within.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~Albert Einstein

We must learn to face the internal conflict of both entities that exists within each and every one of us. The most dangerous combination is a unconscious neurotic ego. That is what causes division and indifference within the world and within each other. This is the crisis of consciousness, not a crisis of religions, politics, wars, money or useless distractions. These are all merely reflections of our inner consciousness, not the other way around. The only reason the lies continue is because we continue to participate with the deception within ourselves. Many falsely think that benevolent actions and positive thinking is the solution to our problems. If it was a solution we would have been out of the age of darkness long ago. When you have truly searched within yourself you will have found the same truth that was within Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad. Then and only then will the world know the third stage of truth, acceptance and surrender to the real truth that is only found within.

“I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success of money, and remain unhappy and neurotic even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow a spiritual horizon. Their inner life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.” ~Carl Gustav Jung

Revolution III

Revolution III

“The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” ~Che Guevara

There is a shadow society that controls and manipulates the world, this elusive society is known as the Illuminati. It exists like a ghost, it is there but you cannot see it. It is around you like a deception. It is difficult to recognize because the deception is what we have known as the truth.

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed by the masses.” ~Plato

the worldThere are those who say you can’t beat the system and in a sense they are right. It is this belief that produces tyrants and oppression within the machine, but those people have also failed to realize that this machine can and will be torn down from within. This is not a physical revolution but a revolution of consciousness that can only be led with love and understanding. The collective consciousness of the masses has been manipulated for the creation and the greed of the few. The few within the Illuminati understand the matrix and nature of reality and use deception and distraction to keep the masses from awakening to the truth that can only be found within you. When the masses have finally awaken, we will have our apocalypse. Not an apocalypse as falsely understood by many as the end of the world. The word apocalypse is derived from the greek word ‘apocalypsis,’ which means to reveal, lifting of the veil, remove the blindfold or as known in the bible as Revelations. This truth is the same in me as it is in you, as it was within Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad. When they say that Jesus died on the cross for your soul, Jesus died awakening the masses to your soul, to bring people to the realization that God is found within you.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange you put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ~Jim Morrison

The Big Electron

“God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” ~Nicolas of Cusa

An atom is a microcosm of a minute solar system, in which our planet is a macrocosm of an electron revolving around its center. The electron which is the main ingredient to the source of all creation that permeates our infinite universe. The video below that features George Carlin and Bill Hicks was shared by Pepe Aguilar, and I wanted to share with you.

“A young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” ~Bill Hicks
