Details Are Meant To Obscure The Complete Picture
The whole is greater than its parts.
Obsessing about the details – bits of information – causes denial, disagreement and refusal to listen. In being negative, we misunderstand the positive aspects contained in knowing the entirety.
When we become involved in the details, we lose sight of the whole. We see this regularly in the ‘officialdom’ of all walks of life, where they can only quote dogma, like four-years-olds at odds with reality. The dogmatic try to censor anyone who’s having trouble believing. 🙂
How are we deluded?
Weak power has to show strength by a display of righteous posturing. Real power is hidden through distraction, by using weak power to create excitement. We’re deluded if we believe in the weak display of pompous self-importance. Again, lots of detail is learnt and presented, but this is only a ruse; it’s trickery, encouraging the weak-minded to follow the band.
If the Buddha said,
“Do not take my word for the truth; test it for yourself”,
Absolute truth is only a mystery hidden to informers, as they have not realised that that which witnesses absolute, complete truth is beyond information. We are that absolute truth.
As long as people nit-pick on the details, they will argue ad infinitum. This very activity distracts us from realising the power of our reality … empathetic love. Evil hates unity, and eternally tries to divide, and break into pieces. We all fall into this category, unless we notice it.
The complete picture is that we are and always have been pure consciousness that expresses itself as empathetic compassion. Any details about the true love that is beyond words merely obscure it. A lack of love is the hallmark of negative enmity.
Myths and stories keep us occupied in the denial and disagreement of relative truth; fixating on details, we become confused. There’s something for us to relate to, resulting in duality, and a feeling of separation and loneliness.
Take the word, ‘capitalism’. We may think of capitalism as private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit – the right to earn a living.
The actual definition of capitalism is; an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
We think it is the government (that’s one of those ‘bits of information’) that we voted for in a ‘democracy’ that rules, when the complete picture is that we are controlled by private owners whom we didn’t vote for.
If we only look at parts of economics, politics and religion, we will never ever look at the history of the world! These are merely different aspects of the subjugation of humanity, which has been brought under a yoke.
Complete meditation frees us to see clearly,
and break free of this yoke.
Complete meditation is dropping the meditation,
as meditation can become a yoke in itself.
