Will we transcend the world of duality?

Dualism in cosmology is the moral or spiritual belief that two fundamental concepts exist, which often oppose each other. It is an umbrella term that covers a diversity of views from various spiritual and religious beliefs, including both traditional religions and scriptural religions. [1]

From transhumanism to the war over consciousness, the split between opinions, beliefs, and perspectives has never been so vast.

But much exists alongside fear and imagination.

In times of turbulence and uncertainty, we have an even greater desire to find truth, and assurance. We seek out information that provides us with affirmation and avoid ideas and people that we believe are dangerous or misleading.

Our current opioid epidemic is a cautionary tale against the dream of a sedated humanity. We are still reeling from the totalitarian dream where millions perished in the name of a radiant future that required some lethal cutting of ethical corners in the meantime. [2]

When fear becomes hate

Humanity stands on the edge now, on the precipice of both a fall and a rise. The tower of Babel has risen from the sands of time, and we are now walking within its hallways again. However, we will not fall and rise together, entirely as a group. It is up to the individual to decide if they will fall or they will rise. [3]

The experience is shared, but the outcome is unique to the person.

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

Master Yoda

It is a powerful time to be on earth, a time that has been predicted in the sacred writings of all spiritual paths for eons but it is also a difficult and frightening time for those who do not know what is happening as they witness much that has always been a certain way change or disappear. [4]

Physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual facets of life are or soon will collapse under the weight of their own nothingness. [5]

As humans, we tend to focus on the negatives. Brene Brown says: “When you ask people about love, they tell you about heartbreak. When you ask people about belonging, they’ll tell you their most excruciating experiences of being excluded. And when you ask people about connection, the stories they told me were about disconnection.”

In this age of enlightenment, people are searching for a deeper understanding of universal truth and a way to reconcile the spiritual nature of humanity. Ascension is both a process and a destination. [6]

It is shame, or fear, that holds us back and stops us being our true selves and showing our vulnerability. However, those who embrace their vulnerability are able to succeed and be happy.

Feeling superfluous is a blow to the human spirit. There is clearly a distinction to be made between valid confidence or self-esteem, and conceit – which can be described as an inflated sense of importance, grounded in a false image of self. The latter leads to social isolation and emotional pain, and creates the conditions for negative emotions to take root. [7]

Uncertainty and the prospect of failure can be very scary noises in the shadows. Most people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty. [8]

Courage comes from the way we regard situations. [9]

“Fear comes in many forms, and we usually don’t call it by its four-letter name. Fear itself is quite fear-inducing. Most intelligent people in the world dress it up as something else: optimistic denial.” [10]

“There’s no difference between a pessimist who says, ‘Oh, it’s hopeless, so don’t bother doing anything,’ and an optimist who says, ‘Don’t bother doing anything, it’s going to turn out fine any way.’ Either way, nothing happens.”

Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia

Basically all the world’s major religions teach that diligent work in the service of others is our highest nature and thus lies at the center of a happy life. Scientific surveys and studies confirm shared tenets of our faiths. People who prioritize doing good for others are almost twice as likely to say they are very happy about their lives. [11]

Selflessness and joy are intertwined. The more we are one with the rest of humanity, the better we feel. [12]

May this realization lessen the conflict in society as we realize there is no need to compel one another into belief systems to create peace or order. [13] There is no reason to compel or coerce minds in any way, shape or form.

The mind that is not peaceful and in the heated grip of unfulfilled desires — desire and greed for power, or full of anger or hatred — is in the midst of fiery emotional whirlwinds of war. When awakened, realisation arrives that the empty place within is the sacred space where enlightenment is born. [14]

And not needing to be filled with things or with others, their need for war will simply cease. [15]

Admitting we are all fallible, asking for help and embracing our weaknesses shows us we all are human. It enables a true, compassionate, and authentic connection with self, and with others.

We can begin to free ourselves from uninvited and toxic dynamics, when realizing with great compassion people are not actually fighting us, but their own inner battles that are projected out into the world.

As we find ourselves walking through the stairwells of Babel again, may we see that we are walking upwards, rising and climbing. Or, may we notice that we are, again, falling, descending and lowering ourselves by dividing and splitting into unrecognizable forms, becoming mere shadows of ourselves. [16]

This is our choice.

“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.”
