“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Conversations on Oneness and Equality 3

Previous: Conversations on Oneness and Equality 2
So the last post we ended off with the statement that emotions were substantiating a lie of a comparison between two things. Let's take this opportunity today to explain more about how our emotions influence oneness and equality, if it does at all.

So from the previous posts, it may be apparent to you that I am asserting that oneness and equality already exist in some way. That it doesn't really depend on what you think about it. Indeed it is like the sun, the moon and the earth. Each exist, and you know this because they have always been there for you throughout your life, yes? Now what is interesting is that it is possible for people to deny things that are true. One question is how does denial work and how can I tell and know when I am in denial?

Let's take a more controversial example than whether the sun exist. How about whether it is wrong to kill someone. Is it true that it is wrong to kill someone? What is wrong? To kill someone is a physical act and it is quite clear when a person does something physically to kill another physical body. But what is wrong exactly? It's not a physical thing right? You can't taste, smell, touch or hear wrong in your reality. You can't hold it in your hands.

Before we try to answer the question what is wrong, let's consider some practical examples with some context. Is it wrong to kill an animal? Is it wrong to kill a plant? Is it wrong to kill a human? And is each of these things that you can kill: a human, plant or animal equally wrong to kill? Have you ever considered this question before? If you haven't why not? I won't attempt to answer that last question, though it would be good for you to self-reflect and answer that for yourselves. Now, how about the question, is it wrong to kill an evil human, or is it wrong to kill a person if it will save many more people?

Based on what I have studied on people, which primarily includes studying myself and observing the answers of others, is that when it comes to what is 'wrong,' we become emotional. And that we tend to answer the question about what is wrong based on how we feel in the moment. And that if you are able to change how someone feels, you can change their answer. This is the basis of all political campaigns essentially.

The actual answer about whether it is wrong to kill someone is not important. The point that is important to understand is how our emotions play a major role in our decision, and how this tends to fall apart when we really test the system out, and reveal to ourselves what is really going on within us. This is in essence, denial, self-lie, self-deception, and self-delusion. Because when you ask yourself the question, why do you feel the way you feel, the whole design falls apart. There really isn't any real reference to reality or what is actually beneficial for everyone.

Now, what happens if you were to stop your emotion for the moment of making a decision about what to do in a given situation? You can start to analyze and rationalize based on the variables and factors before you in the given situation. Because that is all there is in any given situation, the physical facts and conditions. Any emotion involved isn't something physical. Just like with what is wrong, wrong isn't something you can taste, smell, or touch. You can't hold it in your hands. And it just so happens to be the case that everything physical are things you can taste, smell, touch with your body. These things are real, and they are physical things.

So when it comes to emotions and oneness and equality, emotions are our way to deny what is real, and to deny seeing the oneness and equality that is part of everything real. Ironically we use what is real, which is this body, which is already oneness and equality, and we delude ourselves with emotions. In a world where we can deny, lie, and delude ourselves, it is necessary that oneness and equality already exist. Because you are one and equal to what you create, and what you create is you. So the fact that emotions exist as way to delude ourselves, proves that we already are all one and equal. Because oneness and equality means that we have the power to even enslave ourselves. I can explain this further in the next one. Cheers.   (you can reflect on the question for next time: can another enslave me?)
