Universal Truth, Individual Comprehension
I have this feeling of completeness and of sudden realization lately, as if I have discovered one, if not the most important truth in our universe. I feel as if I have been birthed by a cocoon into a free butterfly and I am flying towards the sun, ready to touch every flower I encounter and give them life.
It’s more than a religious, or a spiritual, or a scientific awakening. It’s a personal realization that has been built from the inside, from the cross-reference of my individuality with happenings or events, as well as with signs given by books, music, films, or even a conversation with a stranger. All I know is that I have never been so certain in my life about my, and our place here on earth, and that I do believe that there is one truth, and “versions of the truth are mistruths”. I feel all of a sudden that there is one answer and we may not be able to see it in the same way, we may not be able to express it in the same way, but some of us are able to encounter it once, or even several times in our lifetime, if not in other lifetimes, if such thing exists. The sudden realization that there is actually a purpose, a meaning to it all, and that we are not all thrown into chaos, and life is not meaningless, that the movements of this great symphony are all important, that all choices, that all decisions, that all of the things that we do, play an important part in the universal scheme. I have this sudden epiphany that as small as we all are, and as small as all of our actions are, they are all important in the big mathematical equation of all universe, multiverse, or all-existence; that in every step we make we define the next scene, the next note, the next movement.
I feel that there is some sort of connectedness between all humans, and all nature, and all elements in this all-existence if not multi-verse, and we are all important. I believe this connectedness is lived, perceived, felt, through love, that is not just sexual, or just a familial love, but it’s more universal, and more all-encompassing. I believe that the love we have for the people we meet, that take essential part in our lives connect us in a thread that spurs the continuity of our existence. There is a time-space continuum that we as humans are unable to comprehend rationally, but yet by instinct, in our subconscious, maybe when we’re asleep dreaming, maybe when we listen to a piece of music that just sounds so familiar, maybe when we fall in love with who we call our soulmate, or the beautiful creature we bring to life, maybe when we encounter a stranger’s eyes, we know, without knowing, that we are all connected. We are all in a theatre experiencing the same theatrical piece together, we’re all notes of the same symphony, drops of the same ocean, molecules of the same formula, stardust of the same stars. Suddenly, all limitations are just illusions that we create to make sense of our world, but in fact there are no limits. Suddenly, all is blurred, and with our lover’s kiss, in a perfect orgasm, through the eyes of our creation, a culmination of a symphony or song, we are able to capture that truth, that we are all part of one and the same.
My sudden realization if I can make any sense of it all, is that we humans owe our lives to each other, and that we need to play the role we are meant to play. There are some of us that get to win this sixth sense for even just a moment and want to share it with the rest, the idea, the universal truth of love, because there is no other human word or conception that can describe this greatness but love, that this love is so important and without it there wouldn’t be nothing. In our human world, we try to make sense with our limited brain, with our limited categorizations, conceptions, ideas, names, mathematic formulas of what’s around us, but there is one thing in our limitation that we are able to do, to express this connectedness, this feeling of greatness, that is barely seeable in a single dejavu, or twitch of an eye, let alone all-comprehensible, and that is to love one another. There is nothing more spiritual, more transcendent, and yet worldly than love. Is only through love that we are able to overcome our limitations and see the beautiful truth of life, of existence, well if not to see, to just have a glimpse in a little window opening of the universal truth.
I am able to see a new world, a world of the future for us, but a world that still exists in the greatness of it all, where empathy connects us all even more, that we are able to surpass our differences, and by love comprehend our similarities. I know I cannot reach this world through a time machine, but just maybe by writing and thinking about it. Someone else can reach this world with music, with a film, a book, a poem, a painting, or just a single simple dream. I believe that we are incomplete until we see the big complete picture and let go of our limitations. There is only one way that we can fly and that is by letting ourselves go.
In this realization of truth and universality, that is just a feeling, just a thought, just a glimpse into the grand picture, that I’m sure will leave me once again as I am suddenly swallowed by the Earth’s gravity, I want to live a fingerprint, a memory, a purpose, because there must be a reason, there must be one, for why I am able for just one moment to see with such clarity, and that I must continue the journey that my limited brain has so hopelessly tried to conceive. I do know that our life on earth is so short, and yet I feel that it continues after we leave, and it has started before we were born. I want to continue to spread the truth about love, about acceptance, about comprehension, about loving one another without prejudice, without anguish.
To be able to overcome our limitations, we must know what our limitations are. From the moment we are born, a genetic compound has limited our abilities and we can’t go further than we are “written” as, and a domino effect of events set from who knows when has if not pre-determined, set in motion our paths in life, and most important the amalgamation of choices to choose from. The future already exists as time is limitless, and yet it doesn’t mean that we have to sit on our laps and wait for it to happen, we are still given free will to make our choices, to decide our path. It has all happened, all will happen, all is happening at the same endless, continuous unfractured time, and yet we are still expected to contribute in this great scheme of things with our choices, with our actions, with our energy, with our love.
We may live in the dimension that includes all, in a transcendental truth that we cannot grasp alone, but as a unity of things we do, and yet we also live in this limited sphere of identity, of individuality, of ego, that we create. It’s by knowing what these limitations of chance and fate and choices that we are able to comprehend how to surpass these limitations. If we were born poor and violence was thrown upon us at an early age, it’s only by comprehending the wounds afflicted on us that we are able to learn to heal. It’s by understanding where our prejudice comes from that we can be able to be judgment-free. Our enemies are our friends, but most important they are us. We need to suddenly understand that as we are “I”, we are most important “we”, that the one and the all come together; that, is the universal truth. In this earthly earth of limits what is your individual purpose, what is your path, what are your choices, where do you come from and where do you want to go? A sixth sense it’s reached from time to time when we are able to understand that borders, and confinements and chains are only illusions. I am not saying we will be able to let go of those chains, because we are contained in bottles in this life by our own consciousness, and we are unable to truly let go of this illusion, and yet by imagining and letting our imagination free we can if not grasp, again get a glimpse, or a sense of this universality in which we belong. In our limits, the best way to live as all, and make this life matter (a life that already matters, but why not matter in a positive way), is by loving a stranger, as much as loving our closest souls.
I wouldn’t dare to tell anyone what to think, how to feel, or how to live their lives, but I would dare to just say one thing, that it is possible to feel more complete, and for a lack of a better world, happier, or more at peace, accomplished, well-adjusted, realized, by being less egotistic, by being more empathic, by trying to understand that the importance of the other is equal to our own. And it’s so much easier to be happier, more complete, more well-adjusted, when we accept the differences, when we love them even, when we forgive and when we heal our own wounds, and expand our own hearts.
I believe, or think, or conceptualize in my tiny little head and consciousness, that all universal truth it’s hidden within ourselves, even though we are built in a way that we cannot grasp it all, and I believe that when we use our primary instincts, and act as our, traditionally speaking, hearts tell us to, we are doing the right thing, and we are playing a good role in the greater scheme. It is what we feel it’s right that it’s a message from the multiverse, from the all-existence, not what we’ve been told by religious institutions, cultural and social norms. Let yourself go and understand how beautiful everything and everyone is, just the way they are, and how beautiful we all are when we appreciate, comprehend, and accept each other, but most importantly when we appreciate, comprehend, and accept ourselves. This is the formula to let all the pieces within come together, and then in a further step the piece of our own self come together with all pieces in One.
In the end what I believe in wholeheartedly, subconsciously and consciously, physically and transcendentally, is, that we all, humans, and animals, and all life form, and all stardust, and all matter and anti-matter, together, without exception, we all make up this greatness of all-existence “entity”, and for a lack of a better word, I believe that this is what we all try so hard to call as God. The biggest blasphemy for every religious person, but also atheist person like I dare to still call myself as I don’t really know how else to describe my feelings about this topic, is exactly this one my dear fellow passengers, that I and you, and all of it all are particles of God, that there is no one big consciousness, but it’s the union of us all, of a consciousness cut apart into infinite number of pieces, each holding one piece of the puzzle of the universal truth, we are all God, together we are God, and by love we are able to synapse these little particles and make the work stay complete.
If there is a lesson I can write in this babbling between thought and communication of thought, realization of truth and losing the foresight, is that it’s only through love for eachother and for everything and everyone that surrounds us that we can reach God, because that is the moment we can feel the union with this big All-Existence, that is the moment we synapse more intensely. Take the time to love a cloud, the sun, your hair and skin, your pet, your neighbor, your drink, your dreams. Take the time to try and understand the other person’s “Ego” and empathize and feel and understand that you are part of God.
