Walking the Dogma

We humans make up our own beliefs, just like squirrels hide nuts.  It is part of our nature.  Each of us are the screenwriters for the dramatic story of me.   But, just like getting lost in a book or a movie we forget that it is all made up.  Unless you are God, or A God (depends on your religious dogma), then everything you are, or believe, is only half of the truth.  These half-truths and our failure to recognize them are what has become dogmatic knowledge.  What does it mean to be rich or poor?  Good or bad?  Who am I?  What is my political affiliation?  These are questions that we all get to make up the answers to.  If you wanted to believe in rational self interest then you could point to and quote Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.  But, believing in that as the highest philosophical point of Ayn Rand, and accepting it into your life, is just like taking a trip around the world, stopping halfway, and then going back home.  YES, you traveled the SAME distance as someone going ALL the way around the world, but you forgot the other HALF of the earth.  We make up our beliefs and find evidence to support it.  Life is a dance between objective and subjective.  Not knowing the difference is ignorance, or dogmatic knowledge.  It is a simple concept, yet most people can NOT do it wholeheartedly on a daily basis.  It is easy to say yet almost impossible to do.  It is these half-truths that are the reason for most of the conflict in the world.

“When I see that I am nothing, that is wisdom.  When I see that I am everything, that is love. My life is a movement between the two.”- Nisargadatta

The Copernican revolution turned science on it’s head.  No longer was the Earth the center of the Universe.  It is time for a Copernican revolution of our religious dogma.   What is God?  God is reality and truth.  Humans are subjective and illusory.  We are a part of nature, but unlike nature we have Free Will.  It is your own Free Will that puts a BIG dog on a leash and then drags you around, chasing squirrels.  SQUAREROOTOFZERO
