"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.
