"You say you want a revolution,
Well, you know, we all want to change your head."
Lennon and McCartney, "Revolution"
So often we want change. To entice what we want to unfold, we engage in protests, political overthrows, revolutions and picketing of governments and the places we work. Yet, the actions we have been taking for the past 6,000 or so years have kept us stuck in a pattern of being dependent on government and corporate systems. Indeed, as the French and American revolutions revealed, in our revolutions we wound up with the same bosses dressed in new attire.
Meanwhile, several religious groups such as the Christian Right romp about screaming and yelling self-righteously about the end of time. They furthermore damn those not agreeing with their way of seeing things into an eternal hell.
Whether we speak of religion or politics or even science and philosophy, our world is divisive. We don't see our unity.
Yet, the great Christian icon, Christ Himself, states the Kingdom is within as well as without. Likewise the Old Testament states one should love one's enemy as thyself. This means that the left and right wings of government and philosophy are mirrors of one another. This also means the Kingdom is in the right wing as well as the left. It is also outside of you, in the "other" and inside of you.
Furthermore, if God is the Self (Yahweh or I AM in Jewish or Brahmin in Hindu), God goes to Hell with us. The reason is that there is no separation of the Infinite from the Finite. It is as the Hindu Upanishads say, "it is above, it is below, it is, in fact, this entire world. When one knows this, one knows bliss in the world and in all worlds is free."
In other words, we are one with Him, Her, and It.
If one practices deep meditation, one can find that the inner world of the Mind and the outer world of Nature are not separate. The Kingdom is within. It is within that you reach a place where all things exist in potential. It is a place that neurologist Karl Pribram and physicist David Bohm refer to as the Unmanifest Implicate Order. The Unmanifest could be referred to as Marie, the infinite Ocean giving birth to the Light of the world (John 1:14 of the Bible). It is also the Keres Pueblo Aluna, who as the Beginning, described as such:
In the beginning, there was blackness.
Only the sea.
In the beginning there was no sun, no moon, no people.
In the beginning there were no animals, no plants.
Only the sea.
The sea was the Mother.
The Mother was not people, she was not anything.
Nothing at all.
She was when she was, darkly.
She was memory and potential.
She was aluna.
Likewise, the Bibles "Book of Genesis reads:
"In the beginning the world was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep (female Tehom). And the Spirit (female, Ruach) moved out over the face of the Waters. And God said, "Let there be Light'"
Recall that the Spirit also moved across Marie, meaning Ocean, which then gave Light to the world (John 1:14)
Or consider the Hindu Rig Veda:
"Darkness enfolded darkness in the beginning with no distinguishing sign, all this was Water."
