Ah… If only we were raised to embrace paradoxes! Since paradoxes are so paradoxical :-), it’d be helpful to know what the collective associates to “paradoxes.” The word is defined as “a statement or proposition that seems absurd or self-contradictory, but in reality expresses Truth.” Since personalities always hunger for something, they must be one-sided; black or white, up or down, yes or no: if not, they would be nourished! However by being into an either or, they miss the most important part of the famous Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil – the one we were not supposed to eat from, unless we had a death wish! That most important part is the word “and,” inviting the stretch in between two polar extremes: not too easy to manage at times!
While wanting to control Nature and dominate her, there is no room for paradox. That’s a bummer, since paradox is the language of the gods! No wonder we would often feel so lonely – forsaken, truly! We are under a false sense perception, when we give our Power to a world out there (e.g.; food or money is my enemy). That false perception, a.k.a. the illusion of separation, may just be the greatest paradox of all, as the sense that we end at the skin feels very real! We are now in a Newtonian physics’ mind that is intent on dominating a hostile world, whereas we know – if only intellectually – of a Quantum physics’ mind positing that there is no world out there, only the observer observing me/you – in this case, as a potential threat.
The funny thing about paradoxes (and they are funny!) is that, while they are said to defy logic, they actually exercise it by being mindbenders! Here are some fabulous questions to that end:
- Can a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?
- Your mission is to not accept the mission. Do you accept?
- Answer truthfully (yes or no) to the following question: Will the next word you say be no?
Potentially the greatest paradox would be: let the Creator God create a stone, which he is not capable of lifting! That paradox could make a skeptic out of any believer, wouldn’t it? And yet, such a stone has already been created: it is called gravity, which is held currently as the greatest challenge to science, preventing an integration of classical physics and modern physics. Without that integration, we don’t have a Theory Of Everything (TOE). And without a TOE, we don’t have a global technology of awakening. And without that, we wouldn’t be called as Essenes or have our Essenes calls :-).
Join us for our next New Essenes show, as we explore the paradox that paradoxes at once defy logic while totally invoking it! We “plan” to elevate the soul by inquiring on P59 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version). We will begin our meeting at 6PM CST / 7PM EST. Listen online, via SKYPE, follow us on Twitter. The call in number is (646) 564-9680 (listen or join in on the rich conversation). Let others know that they may always listen to the archive or join us live for our next New Essene show via EmpoweringNow radio
as well, on Sundays at 11 AM CST / 12PM EST.
