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.

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