All truths are half truths, or so I've been told.

I know this probably seems like it would belong back in the philosophy section with the earlier draft, but I wanted to actually get some responses this time around (so please don't move this topic, thank you). This, unlike the earlier version posted in the philosophy section, is probably going to be the final draft, and as such it is much more consistent in tone and style as well as content. Enjoy!  grin [EDIT: whoops, noticed some things weren't kosher so I had to make a few minor changes, let me know if you guys see anything you think needs correction] [EDIT2: The section "to play the game" has been changed and is now titled "to win the game"]



…and the truth shall set you free.


Wisdom


Wisdom is the ability to see the connection between unrelated things, and wisdom is also the way in which unrelated things are connected. Wisdom is truth juxtaposed over illusion.


Reality


Truth is reality, and reality is truth. There is only one reality, and that is the all that is. Nothingness does not exist. If you see nothing, that is not nothingness because there must be an observer present to observe.


The Observer


The 'all that is' is the observer, and the observer is all that is. The observer is who you really are, you cannot be anything else, because the 'all that is' is the only thing that exists. Nothing can exist outside of all that is. In truth, the observer always observes itself, thus it can be anything and must be everything.


The One Principle


One creates two, two creates three, and three creates all things.

This is the nature of everything. It is expansion, positivity, the ever increasing complexity of all things in an eternal state of unfolding. The line between two points contains infinity of points, thus a line is symbolic of the illusion of separation. Necessity is the mother of invention, as well as evolution. Past meets future in the now, and east meets west in awareness. In this principle is the inherent order of reality.

Negativity is the opposite of the one principle, and only exists where beings choose to believe that they are powerless. In this denial of the one principle is all disorder and unreality. True power is the ability to release, not the ability to control. If one has a need to have control over life, it is because one perceives a separation between one’s life and life itself.


Life


A game is defined by its rules, and a game is meant for the enjoyment of all the players. Life is a game, and all things are players because all things are the observer and the observer cannot die. Where one sees a separation between life, there is no game - there is death.



To Win the Game


One creates two, two creates three, and three creates all things. To win the game of life, you have to be present in every moment, and to be present in every moment you must become fully present in only one. In this way, you become three - the observer, your body, and your environment. In this state, the perfect experience is happening at every moment. This state is total awareness, it is unconditional love. When you win the game of life, you achieve for all things. To win anything at the expense of others is an illusion, because the victory exists only in thought.

Neurons are cells of your body capable of holding awareness. To create a permanent state of total awareness, you must connect all neurons. When you are totally aware, thought disappears. Thought is always an attempt to bridge a disconnection in awareness - a thought is never the solution. There are an infinite number of ways to create connections between neurons. To create connections, you must increase the number of things you can be aware of at one time. You must do this until you are self aware, body aware, and environment aware all at once.


 

The True Nature of Imagination


All things exist by necessity - the mind exists by necessity of your unawareness. You shape your mind, and your mind shapes your perception of what reality is. To be aware of self, body, and environment is to be aware of all you can be aware of, and if you can be this state of total awareness, you need think of nothing. To have no need of thinking is unimaginable, yet not impossible.

Imagination is the inverse of the environment, as interpreted by the body. Imagination is the perception of separation and the manifestation of the need to control – imagination is the result of the need to think, and the imaginary source of thoughts is the ego. Thinking sees a dead end where the ego dies, yet it is here and only here where life can be found. The ego, thus, is the inverse of life and is the only thing keeping you from unconditional love while yet the ego exists only in your imagination. To have self awareness is to see reality independent of the imagination, while to have unconditional love is to become reality independent of imagination: it is to become the truth.


Unconditional Love

In wisdom is freedom. Unconditional love is unlimited self-awareness, and self-awareness is the goal of all wisdom. In reality alone is the truth, and the truth alone is real. The words on the page have as much meaning as you give them, and when words no longer mean anything, love will mean everything. Love is the summation of all feeling, as well as the purest one magnified. It can be neither created nor destroyed, and can be argued neither for nor against. In its presence, all illusions vanish. In its presence, wisdom becomes truth because the mind is no longer necessary. In its presence, you shall know the truth...

THE ANSWER PARADOX
The answer to all paradoxes shows this: "Reality contains logic therefore logic cannot contain reality."
The paradox here is "how can one know this is true?".

If the answer to one paradox is another then the question is the answer.

Oneness and the experience of unconditional love (although it was temporary, I haven't yet made it permanent). Some of it was inspired by "A Course in Miracles", I don't remember where the one principle came from, but my explanation of it is my own, as far as I know. Thanks for the reply!  XD
