the origin of conflict … (click to enlarge the picture ..)
strange … if there was no symmetry,
everything in the universe would be ‘goo’
… and we are part of that symmetry,
aren’t we ..?
… certainly not part of the goo,
are we ..?
beauty is about harmony and symmetry
hence we look for both
to make our world
and to keep ourselves
… but it doesn’t work …
the world is also very ugly,
hurtful, painful, horrid,
fulf of fear …
… we often wake up from our sedated lives
in angst, to the ‘nightmare’ of reality …
God is in everything,
in beauty and harmony,
but also in the painful, hurting,
disgusting and lethal parts
of the Universe
But in stead of waking up to this lesser convenient truth,
we bifurcate and create a duality of God against herself.
Good and Evil …
this bifurcated Reality,
harmony versus goo,
this duality in our minds,
is the origin of any conflict in our heads
and of all the wars on earth
mind only wants to see what is convenient and pleasurable.
like symmetry and harmony in beauty …
but that desire, unfortunately,
is very limiting and
hence, our reality,
is extremely deformed,
compared to WHAT really IS
…. on the other hand:
the startling beauty
that is also everywhere around us,
if we are open to seeing it,
in symmetry, harmony and colour,
is exactly what we need
to silence these,
be it just for a few seconds …
seconds that could initiate the end of conflict:
.. the beginning of an ever lasting Peace ..
