We talk about spiritual experiences, we talk about spiritual awakening, and we talk about the differences between spiritual experiences and a spiritual awakening. We talk about different forms of meditation, and we talk about non-duality and oneness and how it’s impossible to talk about non-duality and oneness without revealing hidden tells of separateness and duality.
We all have our little takes on all the different terms of spirituality.
We think we know, but we don’t know what we don’t know. Or, we think we don’t know, but we actually know and just don’t know we know.
There’s nothing like spiritual confusion over the cornucopia spiritual terms.
In the end, it’s all spiritual. While it seems we can’t help but stumble, in reality we can’t help but find oneness – because oneness is all we have. Oneness is all there is.
Let the battles rage over New Age versus New Thought, Lao Tzu versus Confucius, Hindu versus Zen, The Grateful Dead versus the Moody Blues, Alan Ginsberg versus Ram Das, Richard Alpert versus Timothy Leary.
In the end, John Lennon said it best: I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. Coo coo ca choo.
The Beatles versus the Rolling Stones…..
Thanks for your post. I appreciate it as I’m in a place of unknowing what I already know myself.
I love this post! I recently stumbled across this scripture passage and for me it sums up what you’re writing about.
Hebrews 8:11 “And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.”
When we all become conscious that we are all the creation, we will no longer need the labels of family, husband, wife etc etc. We will all understand that we are complete already.
All the past thinkers have always known what humanity’s ultimate fate will be; it’s just a matter of illusion before we all find out.
Great comment. Thanks much for the passage and for your thoughts.
