Seek and you shall find is true. But where to look? Where else but in the self? Each of our internal experience is a solo experience. That is religion. It was always described as your personal relationship. In there you are alone. Even when around others, the bit that relates to them is given perpetual drive to competition. It is sometimes described as the fool in the attic.

You are awareness, observing your own play and actions, within a projection in your mind. Somehow, the trick concerns making us think we are the actor, rather than the viewer (the awareness) observing it all. There is material-reality (as far as we know, the psychological-reality (our interpretation of it), then the observer of the two.

This elevates the idea of self above the status of another, and kick-starts an almost unseen or often perfectly acceptable internal scale of judgement.

Mathew 6:27 – Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

The World English Bible translation of this is laughable.
Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan?

Stature is either meant in conjunction with height, or how you imagine yourself to be or be seen. Nothing to do with lifespan.

It really means your status and place in the scheme of things is in your imagination. That is where your world-view and idea of self it is situated. It is merely a model within which judgement is used to place yourself somewhere in the thought-system of extreme opposites.

The door is in a single mind at peace. Some preconditions must first be met. You need to be clean, inside and out. See that conflict is encouraged through and through in society and it’s sources and interfaces and know that you become what you consume, even or especially psychologically.

There has been a distinct drop in the behavior of the vast majority. As though what should be mature people, seem to have the ability to mix with the immature and as one becomes what one consumes, the mentalities are being merged. This is psychological disease. As such, the more sensitively in tune are going to find themselves more so sensitively stimulated.

That sensitivity is required to boot you in the right direction.

Look at the Essene way without pride or ideas of gain. It is cleansing and leads to the first resurrection, as does any form of abstinence.


Root Unconscious

If the unconscious is the root of the conscious realm, then the need to be with others comes from that unconscious knowledge that we already are very alone in the unconscious, and that we will return to that state again at some point.

We all fear the inability to prove that we exist or are alive.

Other Place

True religious practice is an evolution over a ‘usually’ 5 to 8 year period. Religion is the carrier of this truth that there is a need to evolve psychologically, to not live by my own ideas of like and dislike, just because everyone else does.

Consciousness emerges in layers from the kernel of pure awareness. As you work back through them with meditation, you pull awareness from the senses, then conceptual thought and so on.

If you combine this with fasting from the world, as the dualism and like/dislike experiences of society, sports, politics and media leave your mindspace, insights take place but only once any will is transcended to want or gain anything from the insight. It only works when you relax the idea that you must be good at it to achieve anything. Knowledge is a curse to the seeker once the method is known.

Initially, the insights lead you to why we are the way we are. Your mind will decide how long you need to understand this. Keep practicing. There is more. Another place inside.
