All nation states are actually illegal.
Well, we can debate that but given the fact that we STILL operate under the Gregorian Calendar without an iota of understanding the dynamics of NATURAL TIME because it was imposed on many culturally rich (& spiritually wise) societies all over this Earth.
This is particularly true in the case of HOW India/Bharat, East Pakistan & West Pakistan (now known as Bangladesh – more Islamic than Bangla, sadly!) finally came to be..
Just as there isn’t a single cell in your body with your name on it, so also the borders that divide India from Bangladesh and USA from Mexico is ultimately fictitious. More importantly perhaps, humankind shares the same atmosphere, oceans, rivers and forests. So, how do we divide up the air such that third-world pollution cannot affect first-world health.. if such a thing was even possible!??
Now that information can travel across national borders, we are in a position to ask more pertinent questions such as.. what is really Hu-man about the human being?
Maybe, there is a clue here:
To answer that question, it is the HU that makes man, “human” and the word “man” was originally gender neutral. How it came to be maybe a matter of debate but the “Hu” is a mystical sound in Sufi tradition that signifies “Self” and the realization of the abstract self-hood at the core of our Being which is more or less imperative now.
“Humanity cannot grow out of its limitations by the ordinary means adopted by the human mind, politics, social reform, philanthropy etc, these can only be temporary or local palliatives. The only true escape is a change of consciousness , a change into a greater, wider and a purer way of Being, and a life and action based upon that change.”
~ Sri Aurobindo
We find ourselves in a plethora of plenty where we have so many choices that the mind boggles to decide on what it is that we really want. A mind that is unable to grasp the basics of thinking – our connection to the breath and the mechanism of remaining connected to the spiritual source.
This knowledge is already available, but hidden in the rubble of technology and vested interests. Sri Aurobindo (the 9th Avatar) explained in Savitri..
“When darkness deepens strangling the earth’s breast
And man’s corporeal mind is the only lamp,
As a thief’s in the night shall be the covert tread
Of one who steps unseen into his house.
A Voice ill-heard shall speak, the soul obey,
A Power into mind’s inner chamber steal,
A charm and sweetness open life’s closed doors
And beauty conquer the resisting world,
The Truth-Light capture Nature by surprise,
A stealth of God compel the heart to bliss
And earth grow unexpectedly divine.
In Matter shall be lit the spirit’s glow,
In body and body kindled the sacred birth;
Night shall awake to the anthem of the stars,
The days become a happy pilgrim march,
Our will a force of the Eternal’s power,
And thought the rays of a spiritual sun.
A few shall see what none yet understands;
God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep;
For man shall not know the coming till its hour
And belief shall be not till the work is done.”
I have followed the clues ever since 1996 or so.. leading to an amazing body of knowledge that comes close to a Theory of Everything but the proof of the pudding is in its taste that other like-minds must savor and re-iterate that my discovery is true. Truth being stranger than fiction, my words seem to appeal more to millennial minds who are fascinated by ai, rather than academic brains of the previous generation obsessed with rules & regulations that hardly make sense in the age of the omnipresent global human mind – the internet.
And so we must first of all untie the knot and the crux of the human problem – that is all we actually have to do, as the light of self-revealing knowledge is auto-generated by internal gravity that is self-existent. It is not so much as to teach children to become aware of their Souls as much as it is to recognize that their awareness needs to be protected so that conscience is naturally available throughout life.
