In our last meeting we looked at how revealing order, in anything, allows for wisdom to be personified. The idea of “order” is pretty basic, in the sense that when I can see that there is order in an inevitable chaos, I can sustain Peace, and, as such, reach the ultimate goal of Self-Knowledge. Recognizing order within the ups and downs of life is the opposite of attempting to control my environment with an illusion of tidiness: rather than a sterile event, it is brimming with life! It is the direct road to mastering my emotions, like choosing the noisiest neighborhood to meditate would be. When I am peaceful – no matter what my circumstances are, I naturally relax, thereby increasing my effectiveness in whatever it is “I” am doing. A disciplined master, e.g.; a Chef, is likely to keep his kitchen clean and the tools, organized… until it gets all messy again in the creative process, and settles back into order. From there, his kitchen is his sanctuary: moved by the sacred, that pleasure transfers to his cooking, which tastes of LOVE, and is flavored with health and vitality.
awareness, consciousness, or familiarity gained by experience or learning.
Yet even in that definition, there is chaos: e.g.; what is the difference between awareness and consciousness? This is so, as knowledge – to be “knowledge” – is biblical in nature: it must be embodied! When Adam knew his wife, there was a complete union of two identities (masculine/feminine) into One LOVE, sensed as knowledge. Similarly, there is a difference between studying an apple, and eating one! Whether a java programmer, a priest, a mother, a factory worker, a student, a farmer, or a comedian, knowledge itself requires a “body” by which to sense it and make it real. I can then own it: no one can tell me I never tasted an apple, when I know I have: there is no second-guessing, no doubt!
Now, consider each body of knowledge as a single star within the vastness of the sky or as a single grain of sand within the immensity of the desert… In that context, each different star-like or sand-like perspective will seem distant from the other or even appear to conflict with the next one. Thus the resisted feeling and experience of chaos arise, and communication is at a stand-still, for example, the two viewpoints and bodies of knowledge of a conventionally trained doctor and of faith healer. The theme – medicine – is the same; the expression, different!
Imagine now that we could see a pattern emerging as constellations of stars and/or clutter formations of sand… That would involve breaking the code in the chaos of knowledge: once seeing its innate organization, we can begin to restore our relationship to the cosmos, to nature, and to humanity. The forest of mind is like a computer waiting to be hacked: each individual breaks his/her own code from a global matrix, and, voilà, comes to Peace. New pathways are highlighted, for the collective and the individual (me) to track and understand my pathology. Once I do, it lets go of me, effortlessly.
Breaking the code and revealing the order within chaos of knowledge begins with an invitation. Here ya go then: you are cordially invited, the table is set and the decoded nectar of ecstasy, ready to be served.
