Is Seeking The Truth A Sin?
If we seek the truth,
we do not accept that what we have been told is the truth.
Sin: an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.
How does one transgress divine law? Surely, if it is a divine law, it is an inescapable, absolute truth that we can prove.
‘Immoral’ is not conforming to accepted standards of morality, which would be conventional standards rather than a divine standard. The question is, whose morality and truth are we supposed to obey? Man’s idea of law, or absolute law? Mixing these up causes great confusion.
We are led to believe that a sin is something evil but, in reality, it can only exist in conventional terms. In absolute terms, evil does not exist. ‘Sin’ is just not conforming to beliefs set for us. Is it a sin not to believe? Are we born to be led by others? If so, we are not free to think for ourselves, but only to think that we think for ourselves! This is being ruled by insanity. The question then arises, “Who benefits?” The answer is the ‘Sheep-herders’.
This growing Machiavellian theme maintains guilt, day after day, until we think that belief is normal behaviour. People can say the sweetest things, but it is not what people say that matters; it is the effect of their actions. Do they show true compassion and empathy, or do they just follow rules?
These sheep-herders worship power and cannot control themselves, and chaos and confusion ensue. Ultimately – or divinely – sin is anything that causes confusion, harming the mind and body of beings. This harm delays beings realising their true nature, their enlightened nature, pure uncontaminated consciousness.
The moment we see clearly is the moment we are free. Meditation is the method of stepping away from all contrivances, taking back control of our mind and life. The future then looks good.
Don’t be a sheep, or a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Pure consciousness, having no self identity, is naked and transparent.
No beliefs necessary,
so no offence can be taken as there is nothing to hold on to.
The Buddha said, “Do not take my word for it; test it for yourself.”
Jesus said, “Seek, and you shall find.”
They were of one mind – that we have to do some work.
The absolute truth is not in the words,
but in the realisation of those words.
