Young Spiritualist

I recently met a famous physicist named Nassim Haramein. I was star struck when I met him because I had seen some of his YouTube videos. He has some very interested subject matter that he talks about, from theoretical metaphysics to black holes to sacred geometry. I was inspired while watching his videos to learn more about physics and sacred geometry.  The more I learn about physics, the more I hear about dark matter and the problem of consciousness. These two subjects and others seem to be a mystery to physicists. They don’t really understand what consciousness is, and they have never detected dark matter.  These mysteries lead me to believe that they have to do with the duality of the nature of reality.

Ancient wisdom has taught us that we are both physical beings and spiritual beings simultaneously. Rene Descartes believed the world is made up of two different types of things: mind and matter. The reason I would call myself a Spiritualist is because I study Spirituality in a similar way to the way physicists study our physical nature. I believe both fields of study are important because they both represent one of the two aspects of reality. The problem with the study of Spirituality is partially the tribal nature of religions. We can learn something from scientists around the world who work together to create a cohesive worldview based on Science, but it is only half the story. The other half is our Spirituality.

Our Spirituality is our connection to God. God is the infinite mind behind all things. The creative force that continues to bring life to the Universe. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “There is one mind common to all individual men.” This points to a Unity we have all been subconsciously aware of, and a harmony we all strive for. For a Spiritual Institution to be effective, its goal should be for the harmonious coexistence of  all cultures around the world. A Spiritual Institution for the common good of humanity would seek to teach Spiritual Principles that lead to peaceful communication between enemies and successful debate between rivals. A Spiritual Institution would bring ancient wisdom from religions all over the world to the young entrepreneurs who seek to change the world.

The fabric of society

What weaves the fabric of society. We can all add our own color and flavor to the culture that we create together, but it is the institutions that have the best capability of keeping and maintaining order in our society. It takes artists and renegades to question the authority of institutions. They will keep the balance from skewing to far towards authoritarian rule, but the institutions must always do their part to keep the fabric of society from ripping apart. We have seen an age of increased resistance to authority. Many people not trusting the church or government or the media. We are becoming fragmented. This means increased chaos, and some people thrive in chaos.

I believe that if we are to keep the balance we must always make sure we don’t go to far towards chaos or authoritarian rule. It has become increasingly difficult for either side of the aisle to gain control of the population. We seem to have many disagreements. I was one to raise my concerns about the institution of the church. I think the church lost some validity in the age of reason and science, but I believe now is the time to rebuild.

There is duality between creation and destruction just as there is duality between cooperation and competition. Which side are you on? Which side is right? When people feel they are being held down by society they will rebel.  If they believe the fabric of society is too heavy to hold then they would rather rip it up and do without it. Of course they will not see the dangers of the other side. The dangers of living with no fabric at all to hold society together. We must find balance.

In this post modern society the very hard task has fallen on us who have ripped religion away from the center piece. We must agree now on the principles and values that we believe are most important. The problem lies again in the duality of being. That for every value that is proposed as the first and most important. The opposite is revealed to be indispensable. If human life if first and foremost. Then free will takes a second seat.
