Food undigested becomes a nuisance. Knowledge unassimilated becomes perhaps a greater nuisance.
I have grasped many lessons since my christian days and have found that “The ALL” is just that “ALL”. The material existence is relative. People like Deepak Chopra say that you create reality every moment and that which you experience in your creation. I can begin to wrap my head around this. I have gone to the illusion of atheism. (I say illusion because it usually cannot fully explain itself and ends usually in a paradox. Also I think Atheism arises largely from a rebellion against a misinterpretation of higher truth which then comes across as a constraining concept of The ALL/ GOD.)
I keep reading and seeing more and more to reinforce what I know, at least in the conceptual sense, of what reality must be in a more profound or higher sense. However my plight arises in my inability to confirm with experience that which I believe must be truth. That I am really part of the ALL and therefore connected to everything else.
Additionally, I’m an African and I do identify with the cause of uplift of my people not only because I identify with the race but because I think that the world is running currently anti-man and Africans are among the worst hit. I do not believe there are any accidents. Neither the fact that I am born African, nor the state of affairs of Africans, I think is accidental. But I still need to Rationalize it.
Why are we Africans situated where we are currently, and for the last few centuries? (Some say that all in our life is a consequence of actions in this or other lives.)
Why was I born among those worst hit? (And this is in no way a show of regret.) In other words what determines what race you are born in? And, Were those who are born African necessarily African in their former life (lives)?
Is it our duty as African to concern ourselves with the fate of other Africans? Or are we here simply to re-member our selves? Or are the two synonymous? If so why?
The following question may not have an answer now. What is the experience like being one with THE ALL? Is it a constant state or is it a momentary glimpse? How does one move from knowing that one is part of THE ALL to actually experiencing this higher nature?
I do give thanks to all who may help forward my development in this regard as these are aged questions in my mind. I have met reasonings sometimes with a very stern and perhaps aggressive response, and I wonder sometimes whether one cannot be enlightened without such harshness or perceived harshness (as it may just be my own insecurities). Thanks in advanced for the reasoning.
Blessed love to ALL and THE ALL.
