Black-and-white

20190426

This haiku at first glance would appear to be just about racial differences. But, no it is not. Black and white as far as skin color goes is just one symptom in our society of a much deeper phenomenon – duality. In this case I mean black and white to be representative of two seeming opposites.

Have you noticed that the tensions in our world are often rooted in just two choices? Right/wrong, male/female, black/white, political left/right, and the list goes on.

Our minds in this dimension are trained to believe in just two, and they are often pitted against each other. But, how can there be only two, in a universe that is infinite? All of the shades of gray, and the colors too, exist in a place that is far beyond what our socially programmed minds can easily perceive. We are capable of critical thinking when we so choose. But, we are so bombarded with information (and much of it designed to buy our minds!), that we often decide to just “go with the flow”, with the requisite A or B. And going with the flow is not always in our best interest, when it means signing on to consensual reality without question.

Do you know where the truth really exists? It is in our hearts and our higher knowing, when we can get out of our heads. There resides the true wisdom, which will allow us to find our way out of this destructive duality mind trap. It is tearing humanity apart.

Duality is
a finite collective mind trap.
Embrace the One heart.
