The sacred Book

I know that one time or another we all had this crazy thought that life would be so much easier if it came with a user’s manual that would tell us exactly how it works and what to do.
Well, believe it or not we do have such manual.

You are the question, the puzzle, the quest, the discovery to be made.
You are the path, the road and the journey.
You are the obstacle on the road but also the power to overcome it.
You are the solutions to all the problems.
You are the destination, the end result and the final destination of life.

You are the beginning and the end of everything and you are perfect in any way right here and right now.
There is nothing missing, nothing lacking in you to be perfect.
You have all the love, the joy, the intelligence and talent.
You have the knowledge and the power to do and to be anything your heart desire.
All you have to do is to experience it.

How would you know that red is red and green is green if you were never taught that?
How would you know the beauty of a sunset or the harmony of a song if that knowledge wasn’t part of you?
How would you know a truth you have never heard before, if that truth was not already known to you?

You are the truth.
You are the Bible, the Quran, the Talmud and the Sutras.
You are the holy parchment that fire doesn’t burn and water doesn’t wash away.
You are the word of God that time will not forget and lies will not corrupt.

The truth is written into your very being, into your DNA so nobody will be a stranger to the word of God.
Not the sailor lost at sea nor the shepherd on the top of the mountains.
The knowledge you seek you have always carried with you so you would have it in your darkest, loneliest hour.
No matter how far from the world you get you’ll never be far from God.

So the problem is not that we don’t have the knowledge.
The problem is that we were taught to look for answers outside.
The problem is that we are waiting for the answers to be given to us by the media, scientists, scholars or our religious leaders.

Nobody has the answer of who you are and what your destiny is; except you.
You are the answer you seek.
You are the sacred book.
Why would God give that answer to anybody else?

I like this argument a lot - maybe the holy word isn't written in books. Maybe God (assuming he/she exists) wrote his truth in each of us deep in our DNA

Perhaps then the problem is that, in reality, it takes us our whole life times to learn how to read that book?

One of the things that always annoys me about religious types is they will pick up on bits of old testament that justify their own personal hatreds - wouldn't it be better to read from the book of our souls?

Excellent post

I'm laughing - if my life did come with a manual of instructions and rules I'd be the first to break them!

Enjoyed this post, Buddha.

Simply beautiful post. It resonates with my own feelings about the meaning of life.

Mia said...

I truly enjoyed this post. It certainly has me re-thinking....

Buddha said...

@ Pixie – I am still learning to read it but I have a gut feeling it is a never ending story.

@ Talon – We all do it and we all know we are doing it.

@ Brooks - Thank you and welcome to our little discussion!

@ Scruffy – Thank you!

@ Quantum – I guess your book has the same info as mine ;)

@ Mia – Thank you for stopping by!
Feel free to share your thoughts with us.

Yes ... unfortunately it is like looking into a mirror and trying to see behind the mirror image.

Usually it is only when we experience severe trauma that the conditioned persona is shattered and the original self has an opportunity of expression, sometimes leading to that "self-awakening."

How much better if we had easy access to the wisdom of the mystics and the understanding to follow it.
