The Answer to Every Problem in
What Has Already Been Said
human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited
in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings
as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of
consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us
to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to
us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of
nature in its beauty... We shall require a substantially new manner of
thinking if mankind is to survive." - Albert Einstein
must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The key to growth is the
introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness."
- Lao Tzu
"Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon
as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines
clear." - Mahatma Ghandi
"Men occasionally stumble
over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if
nothing had happened." - Winston Churchill
Recontextualizing What Has
Already Been Said
of the information that is about to be presented will probably
be blantantly obvious when read but if we look
at the state of the world today it's pretty clear that the majority of
the population on Earth is not aware of the obviousness of this
information. Take the time to fully absorb
and understand what is written here and then realize that it's not just what you are
aware of, but what you ARE. It's
a matter of living this, not just understanding it.

The Nature Of It All
the negatives are interconnected and
feed off of each other. All the positives are also interconnected and
nature of one common, single, Absolute Truth... "Is".
It may appear that this is a
list of opposites but in actuality there are no opposites in the
universe. There are only varying degrees of things like on a
thermometer. There are different levels of happiness, anger, freedom,
peace, truth, etc. just as there are different levels of hot and cold,
with warm (neutrality) in the "middle". It's not possible for there to
be opposites, or an "other" when All is One, because One is all there
is. It's not possible for anything to exist outside of Existence
because then it woulnd't exist. Even what we consider or conceptualize
as being "nothing" is still part of All of Existence.
are the ABSENCE of the positives. Contemplate
what that means for a moment. We can't focus on the negative
and somehow expect the "opposite" to happen. If you don't want the positive,
you can't have/be the positive. Whatever
you put your focus on, you recieve. Focusing on illness or hopelessness
will only bring more illness or hopelessness. Focusing on health or
happiness will bring more health or happiness. "What you resist, will
persist." "What we think, we become." "Wherever attention goes, energy
individual has to change oneself in order to change the world.
Rather than thinking that
others need to change themselves to suit your opinions, change
yourself, and those opinions.
World peace cannot be forced
upon anyone. It will happen when every individual is at peace within
their own mind.
Conflict in the mind creates
conflict in the world.
Peace of mind creates peace in
