Schrodinger, Kierkegaard, Gandhi, Tagore; Jesus and Buddha, Whitman and Rumi; philosophers, poets and prophets through the ages… what are they driving at?
What is the common theme, the unifying Truth espoused by the greatest minds of every time culture, embraced by an ever-increasing number of people today, in an unprecedented techno-spiritual Renaissance?
Wait a second—don’t offer up some quick and easy answer. Sit with the question. Take it in.
It’s tempting to respond with “We are one,” or “God is Love,” or some other catchy little gem of wisdom. But I’m not fishing for words or slogans. I want to go deeper.
What weaves us together?
I don’t care whether you call it God or Buddha nature. Call it Spirit; call it Consciousness or Love, or ‘the quantum source field’ or whatever. It doesn’t matter. Don’t be content with a label.
Forget the names—what are they pointing at?
Whatever it is, we’re immersed in it. Touch it, taste it, breathe it in.
Don’t refer back to the books you’ve read, or what some wise man may have told you. Forget what Patanjali said, and Oprah and Chopra too. Don’t let anyone tell you what is real. See for yourself.
Who are you? What is “I” made of? Where does thought come from? Is there anything you can really know for sure?
The questions are a doorway into the mystery—dive in.
Feel after God.
Seek out the elusive edge between “self” and “other.” Is it really there?
Seek out the essence, the core of your being, the source of your awareness and your will to choose. No more second-hand descriptions—experience it directly. Or does it experience you?
Abide in the question, not knowing… Go deeper.
No more words.
