Ok, I guess I'm existing as refuge from Jack. I can live with that, but I have an ambition for us to be more than that.
Wherever three or four of you are gathered together.........
You understand that I have, in my forty years since Sophia, never had even one sympathetic interlocutor until Eric showed up.
Now, maybe two.... maybe three. Untold riches.....
I can be like the guy on the elevator, Monday morning, who turns to his fellow passengers...... you're probably wondering why I called you here, today.......
All of us, here, are playing with, in Cy's phrase, Synchronicity, or going with the flow, in Eric's phrase. As many have found, when you play with synchronicity, you're sometimes playing with fire.
And speaking of synchronicity, Ron just called, and, quite spontaneously, put in a good word for PF. At least he's paying attention. No other news.
To my little mind, we're gathered together in the name of truth. Yes? Imagine..... how long has it been since such a gathering would make any sense?
And what is truth..... as was famously asked by Pontius Pilate?
I think we know what truth is not. We've been looking for truth, in all the wrong places. We're open to the possibility of the new Advaita.... that truth cannot be compartmented. Science is the four hundred year history of our attempt to compartment/objectify the truth. It has brought us untold riches, and may continue to do so.
But we, here, are willing to entertain the possibility that truth might be whole.
If any of us are even slightly serious about this game of truth, we would be grossly negligent/ignorant, if we denied the spirit of truth. I trust that you know that, by many estimations, this denial is the one unforgivable sin. We do play with fire. This fire will even get you arrested in the prayer room of an evangelical church.
I'm here to demonstrate that the truth is personal. And I would be grossly negligent, if I did not dedicate this attempt to the historical figure who stands nearly alone, in that regard. The one who was sorely tested.
I have every intention of keeping my fellow xtians feet to this fire. And, no, there will be no thanks from that quarter.
No, Eric, I know of no one who has been willing to die for non-dualism, but many have died for the truth. Yes, passion lurks in this valley. Salvation may lurk here, as well.
We are on the verge of witnessing the collapse of the the old paradigm, the one we have been calling modern, for the last several centuries, with barely an objection.
The only thing propping up the old paradigm is the lack of a replacement. Here lies the only coherent alternative. Show me any other, and I'll eat my hat.
Yes, I speak of coherence. Coherence is nothing, if it's not up close and personal. You ask, PF, what I mean by monism, and how it might differ from non-dualism. Non-dualists don't speak of coherence. Eric speaks of the New advaita. Well, I hope you're sitting down when I tell that you're looking at the New advaita. This is it, right here.
Will we have to die for this truth.....?
I think not. Why not? We been there, and done that. And, yes, Virginia, there is progress, although, sometimes, you may have to squint a bit.
Instead of having Herod coming after us, he's coming to us. We have, here, an opportunity for dialogue/compromise.
How do we compromise with the Truth.....?
What we're compromising about is the release of the truth, the breaking of the katechon. Until Chicken Little came along, no would speak publicly about the eschatological implications of where we are, now, with the Truth..... with Disclosure/Revelation. We simply could not comprehend it in cosmic terms. Everyone else was trying to downplay it.... trying to compartmentalize it.... to sell it short.
Yes, it was all about the cover up. But it's not about not about alien hubcaps and body parts at Area 51. That was the cover story. This is about the implosion of the old paradigm. And, UFN, this is ground zero.
If you don't like to have the sky fall on your head...... well, good luck.
Yes, if things go according to plan, a piece of the sky will fall on those old men running around in the desert, but not on the WH lawn, not quite yet.
The Source knows better than to kick sleeping dogs. The four of us are maybe just half asleep.
