The Second Insight

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

The second insight is that as spirit becomes manifest, it does so in such a way that the whole is contained in every part. As atoms reflect the universe, so too does the human body reflect the cosmic body and the human mind the cosmic mind. What does this mean? It proposes that in any one thing you behold, indeed in every conceivable thing you can imagine, there also exists the latent potentiality for all things - for absolutely everything. The whole universe is contained in every point just as the whole ocean is reflected in every drop within it's depths.

This principle means that you don't have to go in search of anything to find the truth. The truth is always right there, staring at you in the face. Just as exploring the molecule is like exploring the galaxy. Everything is contained in the ground of your own being.

Our educational system is based on accumulating more and more information, but actually the more information we gather, the more confused we become and the more we lose sight of the wisdom that is already inherent within us. So learn to ask the truth of yourself. Learn to knock on the door of your own being. This is what is known as intuition,creativity, vision.. This is why a sage is focused on the seer and not the scenery.

What an awesome picture that is! Wow! I was reading somewhere, recently, about this exact concept. That the answers are always within... and all we have to do is be still and quiet long enough for them to come through.

It's so tempting, especially in the "information age" that we live in to go looking outside of our selves for easy answers and quick fixes.
