And for today, some enlightening topics. Or in the spirit of this, I guess we should say only One Topic. I have always found it fascinating or uplifting that all of the greats say the same thing.
And, as from another of our most beloved:
Nikola Tesla – Everything is the Light
(Excerpt from an incredible interview that the scientist gave to the magazine “Immortality” in 1899)
Journalist: “You said that I am, like every being, the light. This flatters me, but I confess, I do not quite understand.”
Tesla: “Why is it necessary to understand, Mr. Smith? Just believe. Everything is light. And remember, there is no one who has existed and who has died! They transformed into the light, and as such exist still. The secret lies in the fact that the light particles restore their original state.”
Journalist: “This is the resurrection!”
Tesla: “I’d rather call it: return to a previous energy. Christ and several others knew the secret. I am looking for a way to preserve human energy. I have not sought it for my own sake, but for the good of all. I believe that my discoveries make people’s lives easier and more bearable, and channel them to spirituality and morality.”
“Whether you worship Christ, Krishna, Kali or Allah, you actually worship the one Light that is also in you, since it pervades all things.”
~ Anandamayi Ma
A good pal of mine and I talk about things metaphysical, philosophical, the world (sometimes with horror), and such things as makes us think. Also Football of course. Once, a long time ago, we began talking about the World-As-One.
The thing that’s wrong with that image is that it takes place in the physical body, rather than in the consciousness. That’s true, yet difficult to get the mind around, or to form an agreement. If we picture our thoughts combined with others to create the mind at large, or all thoughts to create one whole consciousness, it’s far easier to contemplate. This, it seems to me, captures the concept.
Now I can see how my thoughts, negative or positive affect the whole. It’s such a good reminder too, that it might be worth my while to think in affirmatives. Even if it’s much more difficult, especially with the world as it is right now. But that’s exactly the point isn’t it.
