I submit as a logical pro
position that ...
... since both Intelligence
and the Imperative to Create
attributes of any and all
aspects of Life (Spirit, Soul, Being, That
, whatever you call IT), ...
... both discernment
(i.e. intelligent perception) of what is and/or isn't and/or potentially may be
'the case' in any givenn instance and judgment
as to whether not this or that is more or less likely to serve
Life's Creative Purpose ...
) ever present aspects of Existence...
... though anyone may of course refuse
to 'own' their own
perceptions and judgments and so 'dissociate' themselves from them by, in effect, pretending
and/or pretentiously claiming
ally 'defining' what's what or 'judging' its utility on the basis of the values
which they person
ally 'regard' or 'feel' to be paramount in any given case ...
... maybe because they themselves can't
fully believe in their person
or because they think others will 'reject' it as just being 'arbitrary'. Many therefore want to
believe and claim that they can eliminate their person
ivity and so
be non-dualistically object
ively 'one' with absolute
Reality. This, even though the fact really
is that their (everyones!) subject
ivity is really
an undeniably integral
aspect of absolute
'Reality' (no matter what!).
Even Jesus got snaffooed by this 'problem', IMO
- as evidenced by his attempt to simultaneously jump through the same logical hoop
directions in the following statement: "The Pharisees ... said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true
for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, and
the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also." (John Ch.8)
of people try to do the same kind of have-it-both-ways
'dance' with regards to things like 'discernment' (believing themselves to have and so claiming things like 'direct', meaning absolutely
'true', knowledge) and 'judgmentalism' (believing and claiming that they are 'beyond'
My suggestion is that you 'see through' such 'sleight of mind' machinations and also don't aspire or ever claim to be 'accomplished' in said regard yourself. Just be satisfied to 'see' and say what you 'see' and share the logic which supports your perceptions and e-value
I submit that your own purposes will be
fulfilled and others' lives will also be
thereby be immeasurably enriched in the process.
If the above makes sense to you, I suggest that you accept and embrace as an 'article of faith' that Life is best
served (and because it lives in and through you as well as in and through every one else) that IT's purposes will be maximally
, we don't 'need' any more 'absolute
truth' and 'supreme
values' based 'totalitarian' philosophies fish-hooking a bunch a mindless people into either passively (as a result of in
action) or actively (as a result of 'blind' action) messing up Life's process because they do not
al responsibility for their own
perceptions and judgments. It is
time (NOW!) for individuals and humanity at large (in every kind of social milieu!) to learn to function at higher, more personally-n-interpersonally authentic
