Unfocus

“People were created to be loved, things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used.” ~Unknown

I came upon this quote today randomly, and with it I find myself in a sphere of polarity. We all should be so aware to recognize this. Polarity is a construct, as two ends of a complete whole; two compliments set apart, but only by the mind. The whole is what is real, the sphere is solid, continuous and stands in completion. The polarity is seen when we break the sphere, fragmenting a singularity for our own simple minds to understand.

One part of the Tao is hard, the other is soft. This is a whole, two complements completing each other. The sphere is the same. Only when viewed completely, both from within and from outside can we see all compliments dancing in unison with the other. These cannot be fragmented. They remain together, as one. This world is full of fragmentation, full of parts, pieces and pieces of parts. We must put our world back together to live in harmony with the whole; the singularity of life.

I meet people often who have little understanding of anything that does not directly affect their own life. They see value in things, and concentrate on how to gain things, and plot to acquire things, and hardly ever do they consider giving things. Value has been misplaced. Polarity has been flipped, and the whole has become a mess of parts. Which part is valuable? Alone, no value exists. This exists only in the whole. The whole is the value.

As we meander about in life, oblivious to what others feel, only focused on the self, and of things to be gained, we miss out on the life given to us. We can all survive without religion, philosophy, material possessions and mirrors. But we cannot live without love, wholeness and compassion for one another.

I personally don’t believe that the world is in chaos.. But I do believe that many people dwell within chaos, and have lost the path to seek order within; losing sight of the whole and concentrating only on the parts. It is now that we must unfocus. Train the eyes to see the beauty of the whole, the parts alone are only fragments of a perfection that all can witness.

Within the sphere of polarity, we also find the perfect sphere; the divine consciousness of life giving breath. We must meet in the spaces between seconds to realize our wholeness; at the place where time is space, and where we are all perfectly embraced.

Namaste

  1. You wrote a very accurate:
    … But we cannot live without love, wholeness and compassion for one another.
    Here is what God says about it:
    โ€œThe most important point is to teach people love! One has to develop the spiritual heart to fill it with love for all the living! Only thus one can transform the world on the Earth!
    โ€œAnd remember that nothing in this world belongs to you โ€” nothing but your love for Me! This is your treasure, and it belongs to you by right! All your treasures are your love! No one can take it away from you! Love cannot be stolen, taken away by power, cannot be sold or inherited. Love can only be given โ€” sincerely and selflessly!
    โ€œLove has a remarkable quality: the more you give it to others, the more you have it…
    God Is Love!

  2. “We must meet in the spaces between seconds to realize our wholeness; at the place where time is space, and where we are all perfectly embraced.”

    Great lesson in that. Thank you.

  3. Thank you for sharing your insight. I have been trudging my spiritual path, I have been thrown out of my heart center for a while as to words I had heard from my father, whom I no longer trust as to his words truly harmed me. In ways I never thought could be. Getting back into my heart center with love has at times felt like a whirlwind of chaos, but thank you for your words as it reminds me to do exactly that, unfocus from the minute aspects and embrace the whole of life for what it truly is.

    Thank you very much โค

    1. My heart goes out to you, and I wish you well during this time. Very glad I could help in such a small way. Love to you ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope that you will smile, and brighten up a whole room today. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I so enjoy the succinct way you make your point. Like you, I see the chaos in the world as a an emanation of our adherence to duality & separateness. It is my work & my joy to heal my own inner fracturing to the benefit of all. I’m grateful to have your company on this journey.

  5. Thanks for the follow. You have touched wisdom in your life and your words affect this powerfully in me after reading just one post. As a grad student on the precipice of great opportunity and fear (in life, in career, in the future), your attitude gives me faith in a future that is not strangled by people concerned with retreading the same worn paths, rehearsing the same arguments and attitudes and seeking personal, material wealth at the expense of the academy- which I thought was supposed to exist to generate new knowledge, insight and understanding for everyone. My work (and new blog) may not be well received by everyone, but I hope that if it reaches even a few, that it will help spread the message of unity, coherence, compassion and love a bit wider, because now more than ever, as we all venture online more and more in our everyday life’s, we need to keep a touchstone with what makes us human, and not get lost in the noise.

  6. I’ve always enjoyed your writing, but this one is special. The whole post is worth remembering, but what I’ll stop to pack before I continue with my own journey is the anon quote you wrote in the beginning, along with:

    “We can all survive without religion, philosophy, material possessions and mirrors. But we cannot live without love, wholeness and compassion for one another.” and

    “I personally donโ€™t believe that the world is in chaos.. But I do believe that many people dwell within chaos”.

    Thank you for this beautiful post.

  7. Many of us are as we stop, step back from what we have been told or taught is suppose to be right for the teacher is only from their own learnings or understandings. Takes an effort to dwell, exist or be alive and well outside of the box of constraint of normalcy… Excellent depth and feel, your sharing is quite a well received gift, Thank you!
