Life The Paradox

So I’m sitting here pondering on the Shift taking place in mankind’s collective consciousness. The “quickening” as it were of the collective awakening pulse, and I wonder where we will end, in the END! I realise that in order for us to return to Oneness, we have to surrender all. Yet each person that makes up mankind continuously fights tooth and nail to keep what they have, and then they still continue wanting more – it’s the very nature of our society. Pay off your car, and you trade it in on a new faster, better model. Pay off your house bond, and you sell it and buy a bigger one with a new bigger bond. It never ends. It is in our nature to create more, and therein lays our downfall as a species. Life is life’s greatest paradox I guess! And this reminds that James Baldwin once said; “The paradox of education is precisely this—that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.”

I believe that until individually, each one of us starts to live for the greater good of the collective whole, then we are doomed to eventually run out of food to eat and a place to live on. At the beginning of the last century, there were a billion or so people on the earth. By the year 2010, there were 7,6 billion. By 2022 economists estimate that there will be 15 billion or so human beings on a planet that can truly only cater for about 500 million human-monkeys without adverse effects on its natural environment. So today I realise that our “Maker” the Minds middle name must be Paradox. This gets me googling….a new dictionary term I just created I guess!

So I look at the origins of the word Paradox and this is what I read;

  • Para = along-side of, beside, dual, dualistic, two, contrary to
  • Dox – Opinion, Praise

 

Then being a Latin- dude, I look up the origins of the word “Paradox” and find that it was first used in 1540, and is derived from the word “L. paradoxum”. It then says that a paradox is a statement that is seemingly absurd yet really true. As a Noun, the word paradox could mean; 

1. A statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.

2. A self-contradictory and false proposition.

3. Any person, thing, or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature.

4. An opinion or statement contrary to commonly accepted opinion.

Then I start a Wiki search and find – “Similar to circular reasoning, a paradox is a logical statement or group of statements that lead to a contradiction or a situation which (if true) defies logic or reason. Typically, however, quoted paradoxical statements do not imply a real contradiction and the puzzling results can be rectified by demonstrating that one or more of the premises themselves are not really true, a play on words, faulty and/or cannot all be true together. But many paradoxes, such as Curry’s paradox, do not yet have universally accepted resolutions. The word paradox is often used interchangeably with contradiction. Literary and other artistic uses of paradoxes imply no contradiction and may be used to describe situations that are ironic. Sometimes the term paradox is used for situations that are merely surprising. An example of a paradox is “This statement is false.”, and is explained below.”

 

And on yet another site I read; “Falsidical paradoxes are seemingly valid, logical demonstrations of absurdities. Veridical paradoxes such as the birthday paradox which are seeming absurdities that is nevertheless true because they are perfectly logical. In literature a paradox can be any contradictory or obviously untrue statement, which resolves itself upon later inspection.”

And me thinks to myself; “Boy, I wish I listened in “English” class!”

 

So the brain kicks in and I start a paradoxical intersect of all that I know, remember and understand, and I come to this conclusion;

  1. The only reality that exists is GOD
  2. GOD is LOVE, IS LIFE, IS TRUTH and thus the ONLY REALITY
  3. In God there is no Duality, and No Mind, and thus no two-mindedness
  4. In Illusion however, Two Mindedness is it’s reality,
  5. Duality is the Nature of the Mind, henceforth in Duality two realities can co- exist, or should I say two illusions co-exist…namely simultaneously;
    1. Life and death,
    2. Light and darkness,
    3. Good and evil,
    4. Right and wrong,
    5. Us and them,
    6. Me and you…..

 

And therefore in the illusion a Paradox is possible, since two diametrically opposed minds can believe they are right and since two wrongs don’t make a right, and two rights don’t make a wrong; a paradox is then indeed truly possible because neither are right or wrong, and yet both are untruths because both exist in illusion which makes the whole discussion null and void and totally wrong and pointless…..

Oh crap….I must be losing my Mind says the “other” voice within my mind…..

Then I do the only thing I can do – I surrender my thoughts to the Holy-Spirit and I say out loud….”Holy-Spirit Guide Me Now.”

And immediately I feel at peace and much-much better…..

Namaste
