The Magic Mirror

The Kingdom of God is within and without you

Jesus Christ

We are nothing. If we say we are left wing, right wing, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu or even Atheist, then we miss the mark. It is in our accepting of ourselves as left or right that we are integrated into the "divide and conquer" mentality. Yes, I am saying the conflict is orchestrated by media theatrics, be they of Fox or CNN.

In the term atheist is the key to my thesis. A-Theistic. Not theistic. What is called atheism is theism against other theisms. So, if you follow my words, take my writing and after your done reading, trash it. Then, trash everything you've learned.

Atheism as a way of looking at life is a belief system. Move beyond that also. If you call yourself an atheist, you are missing the point. Be nothing. This is the goal of meditation. It is in the silence of Nirvana or Bliss that you become at one with God and in the blissful state of Deep Atheism. How many lovers cry out in the ecstasy of making love? In the most shallow of expressions, one cries "O' My God!" In the most profound of expressions, one just buries one's face in the other's chest and cries. Nothing needs to be said.

Deep understanding and experience of being atheistic as being nothing is the key to finding God. In the terms of Meister Eckhart, we need to "Let go of god for the sake of God." He also says, "Be of the state you were when you were not!"

"Whew!" Powerful statements. Is this spooky to you? If it is spooky, please realize this is the state of profound peace and infinite consciousness.

Eckhart so loved the Catholic Church and the God they professed. Yet, he wound up being excommunicated. Why? Because he advised people to let go. Getting people out of theologies and philosophies is the real name of the game.

John Lennon mirrors Eckhart's teachings when he sings "Imagine":

Imagine no religion, its easy if you do. No hell below us, above us empty sky.

He then sums the song up with the line:

And the world shall live as one.
