It Is All Of The Same Source

Written by Mathew Naismith

Certain people inspire me, as of my present interaction with a physicist who is knowledgeable in the area of the Vedas and other ancient scriptures. The following is my reply to him.       

Something might be written from 100% truth, but how we perceive this truth as humans with bias changes this truth inline with the bias expressed. Being human and of a mind predominantly influenced by bias, no amount of 100% truth will stay at a 100%. The bible can be read in several different ways, one way is to read the bible symbolically which gives the bible a different perspective, the Vedas or any other written material is no different. We will read what we want to read in accordance with our own human biases, presently the way the Koran is read by certain groups is a prime example of this. The Tora is no different as of any ancient scriptures.

When I was in my teens, I could ask any question and get a correct answer as if out of thin air. Of course to get to this state takes a fair amount of time and effort, however, the effort expended was to simply take away the control of the ego. Bias is a sign that the ego is in control. Bias simply separates consciousness in parts, often parts of consciousness that now divided seem opposing each other. No matter what the knowledge or awareness is of, it all comes from the same source.   

I was brought up as a strict or hardline/extremist atheist. I had to give up the bias involved in atheism to get in this state, this is while not taking on another ideology or ism like religion or materialism for example. This also means learning from what each ideology or ism's wisdom and awareness portrays.

So the reason I am not into comparing one against the other is simple, no matter what the knowledge or awareness and wisdom is of, it all comes from the same source. You must realise that our egos in control will see it differently which includes our own biases. It all comes from the same source, be it through different channels or sources of bias. I experienced first hand souls that were lost, souls that many of us call evil. These souls were simply lost within their own creation based on their own biases. I frightened them because I showed no matter how much division from the initial source you exist under, the divine spark in everything still exists. The divine spark being of the initial source of all things, like all knowledge, awareness and wisdom. How many of us with our own biased desires desire to know this?

We agree on a lot of matters xxxxxxxx, but we must be aware that we won't agree on all matters and leave it at that. I am not here to search for truth but honesty within whatever the truth may be, seen as all truth initially comes from the same source. You seem to be looking for truth and 100% truth. Am I right and you're wrong? No, because searching for 100% truth does exist, just not on a human level of consciousness and understanding as you seem to be aware of. Our paths might cross xxxxxxxx but our journey is different while at the same time our journeys are not apart. Human bias often sees a difference as a division, and often an opposing difference. In the absence of bias, all that one sees is a difference with an underlaying sameness, like the lost souls I experienced.

The perception of God gives us a sense of one source, the spark within all things no matter how much a consciousness desires to separate itself from, or how lost within it's own creation a consciousness becomes. The ego, as always, desires to be its own creator as clearly seen in today's human consciousness. I think the perception of God, one initial source of creation, is perfect, giving us a glimpse beyond the egos controlling bias ways. Of course this perception isn't for everyone's acceptance and understandably so.

The Search For 100% Truth

Written by Mathew Naismith

I thought I would share my response to a physicist who asked my opinion on a few matters. As of a physicist will do, search for a 100% truth in a mind that is known to be primarily influenced or conditioned to and by bias. If you want a 100% truth, go beyond the human mind.    

It is often perceived that a white man represents positive and a black man negative, even at times by black people. Another example, often yin is seen as negative to yang which is positive. This is how we psychologically perceive, or, are conditioned to perceive xxxxxxxx.

I am not conditioned to a black and white mentality xxxxxxxx, where one is right or positive over the other, within this, my bias or dishonesty is limited. I don't follow a particular ideology or ism for this reason as all human created ideologies and isms are only of part truths. So are the Vedas of 100% truth? Not in my mind for bias is always present within anything created or perceived through human thinking.

Is this pure state of awareness vibrational, a state of motionlessness?

Through vibrations (motion) we have creation, when everything in a motionless state already existed. I wrote a post years ago about vibrations alive, where everything in motion (vibrative) is alive, including a rock, so does this mean this motionless state of pure awareness is not alive? To us, yes, but to anyone who has glimpsed this state, no. Buddhism, in my mind, incorrectly refers to this state as nothingness, only because this state seems dead, as motionless, non-vibrative.

When you glimpse or experience this motionless state, you realise that not everything alive or of existence vibrates. A consciousness of the awareness of all will not vibrate, but a consciousness only aware in relation to its bias or its conditioning will vibrate.

Am I endorsing BD because you agree with me in relation to your own views/bias? If you know anything about the psychology of the human mind, you will realise how bias is a primary influence in all our lives, including my own. The difference is, I am aware of this in the absence of bias.

xxxxxxxx, if you are looking for 100% truth and honesty in the absence of bias, you will never find it through human perspectives and perceptions. I suppose our own bias and the way this bias makes us think is what makes us human!! When you go beyond the bias of the human mind, only then can you truly see this, otherwise your own bias will bias you from truly knowing this. In other words it's pointless searching for 100% truth, even from a written awareness beyond the human mind, for the human mind reading this truth will always express a bias. Try not to be so human, and the truth will fall into your hands as if by magic.

The Perception of God

Written by Mathew Naismith

Try to keep in mind before reading the following, I was brought up as an atheist and I have never followed a religion or any other ideology or ism in my life. What I have exercised in, after extracting myself from the doctrines of atheism, is finding reason within all the ideologies and isms man has created in discovering the environment man exists in. This of course includes the perception of God.

Before I go on, I would like to share with you a dream I had last night. As usual as in an awakened state, I was looking in all the nooks and crannies I could for whatever presents itself. I usually do this in the absence of bias as a lot of ideologies and isms can create a great deal of bias at times. I saw this cave so I of course decided to investigate even though this cave was quite dark. The cave didn't turn out to be a cave and I found myself looking out over an ocean. I was in awe while listening to the wave's crash on shore. The ocean was quite rough but still so beautiful. I then decided to in my dream on purpose think of the perception of God, what occurred then was quite amazing.

When you are consciously aware that you are having a dream, this is called lucid dreaming. In this state of dreaming, you are able to consciously influence the dream; in my case it was to do with an experiment to see how the perception of God changes my dream. As I said, I like to look into all the nooks and crannies, into all the possibilities in the absence of a much bias as possible. I thought the scenery was beautiful before. As soon as I had a perception of God, the ocean was no longer rough and everything simply sparkled. It is as if everything came alive.

Don't make the mistake and think religion is of God or has to be of God, religion is simply one of many tools for man to investigate he's environment as a whole. As of a lot of atheists who totally denounce that a consciousness can exist outside of the physical brain in accordance with atheistic doctrines, religion can have its own biases as well as human history clearly shows. As history clearly shows, not everyone of religion was of God, far more of the church than God sadly enough. You see, to be of God or have a perception of God has very little to do with religion but religion can keep us in touch with God or the perception of God.

It is also important not to separate religion from science. Take Hinduism for example, where science has always been apart of the religion of Hinduism. How many modern day scientists believe in a God and/or follow a religion of one kind or another?

So many people today are denouncing God just because of the perceptions of religion has in relation to God. In all honest truth, what would we know? We can't actually know so we can only perceive through various religions in relation to God. Try to remember, not everyone of a religion is of the perception of God as history quite clearly shows us, actually quite the opposite at times. Yes, as of any ideology or ism created by man to investigate and examine his environment, the ideology or ism to do this is only as perfect as man himself, considering man isn't perfect, denouncing God just because of a number of indiscretions in religious history, isn't exactly a wise of unbiased way of reasoning. Man is not perfect therefore it is quite unreasonable to expect his created ideologies and isms to be perfect. I actually expect them to be imperfect before expecting them to be perfect, within this, a reasonable an unbiased deduction can be formed. How perfect is numerous science theories taken as being fact? Even some of Albert Einstein's theories that were taken as fact are being questioned as science should to evolve.        

What I have exercised through life is an unbiased culmination of the universe being created by a far more aware and wiser consciousness. If you culminate all the research on out of body experiences (OBE's), reincarnation, CERN, that scientists can create mini universes and on it goes, I would have to be a total ignoramus or a very ignorant atheist to ignore all this evidence. Of course not all atheists are this ignorant, just not convinced enough to believe which is fair enough. Having been an atheist, it is amazing how bias one can get when you religiously follow atheistic doctrines. Of course the same can be the case for religious people as well as history clearly shows again.

God or the perception of God doesn't follow a certain religion; religion simply follows a perception of God or whatever you want to call a more aware and wiser consciousness than our own to be. As of my dream, the perception of God changed my scenery to something even more beautiful and spectacular. In a time of chaos, deception and destruction, what is so wrong in having this kind of perception? My subconscious and consciousness obviously perceives God to be a changer of worlds, but only through our own awakening and intervention.

Going Beyond Our Safe Havens

Written by Mathew Naismith 

Why would anyone want or desire to go beyond their own safe havens? Once acquired, to desire to venture out of this safe haven isn't desirable. Either acquiring a spiritual or materialistic safe house, or what ever, venturing out of or sacrificing this safe haven in anyway isn't desirable. A safe haven of course being an environment we have created for ourselves that we personally feel comfortable and secure in.

Venturing Out: People like myself could have stayed in our safe havens but we didn't, the reason for this isn't that simple to explain. By my early teens, I created this safe haven, this was primarily brought about by the environment I was experiencing at that time. Most often a destructive environment will entice us to build upon a safe haven, an environment that is more constructive towards our well being. I am now 52 years old and I still to this day often venture outside of this safe haven but for a very good reason. 

Venturing out from this peaceful tranquil state of consciousness isn't easy at times, in actuality, it can be quite traumatising, depending on the environment we put ourselves in. Firstly, people like myself don't judge one environment being any less worthy to experience than another, if we did, this would be a sure sign of bias and even prejudice. There is no awareness or wisdom to be acquired in being bias or prejudice or fixated to one kind of environment, while at the same time, deliberately ignoring other environments because we judge them as being unworthy, negative or bad in some way through bias and prejudice. No one becomes truly aware and wise through predominantly experiencing their safe haven. Yes, venturing outside this safe haven can be scary, basically, our safety blanket has been taken away from us, meaning, we feel more insecure away from this safe haven, but to become truly aware and wise, one must always venture out beyond our own set limitations.

Bias and Prejudice: Recently, a terrible catastrophe occurred, a number of adults where killed in Orlando USA, of course once again, another memorial will be set up  to remember these people who were massacred by a lone gunman. It's said to be the biggest mass killing/shooting in USA history, disregarding the slaughter of American Indians of course for starters. I wonder how many children and young women have been kidnapped and are presently being used as sex slaves, will a memorial and a remembrance day be forth coming for these people, which is by far a worse catastrophe than a single shooting which is now in the past? Most often these people end up dying in a bad agonising way.

Over in Palestine, women and children are presently being massacred and have been massacred for some years now void of any great outcry, unlike the shooting like Orlando. It's obvious that a genocide of a kind is presently going on, is NATO intervening, are the people tucked away in their safe havens intervening? Is their as big an outcry to the Orlando massacre by the rest of the western world compared to what is going on in Palestine or to child sex slavery? The answer is obvious.

Lets' put this in perspective, would the western world cry out more if a pregnant women was shot dead in the streets of a western country like Australia or the US or an eastern state/country like Palestine or Iraq? The answer again is obvious. How much of an outcry is there when pregnant women are shot in Palestine? Is it anywhere near to the outcry of the shooting of adult men in a western country like in Orlando? Can you now see the obvious bias an prejudice we have acquired through being shut away in our little safe havens, especially in the west? There is certainly no awareness or wisdom to be acquired through these kind of actions, the war will certainly continue only because we feel safe in our safe havens but this is an illusion and certainly not infinite.

Spiritual Safe Haven: As I have done, spiritually aware people, unlike materialists, try to create a safe haven where they always feel safe and secure and at peace or relative peace. Anything beyond this safe haven is usually judged as being bad or negative in some way, we don't often then venture beyond this safe haven, basically, we become limited to our haven or box. This box stops us  becoming aware of anything we have judged as being bad or negative compared to our own safe haven beyond this box. Just judge it so and so witch gives us a reason to stay ignorant to anything but of our safe haven. However, when a catastrophe like a shooting occurs, we are no longer able to stay within our box. It's OK that young children and young women are used as sex slaves and that far worse catastrophes are presently occurring around the world, which are still apart of our environment if we like it or not, no matter how much we shut ourselves up within our box.

We also have an excuse to shut ourselves up within this box, we can pray/meditate for peace, like the hundred monkeys theory where one hundred monkeys change the consciousness of all the other monkeys. We often do this but this theory doesn't work, obviously, as we have been doing this for thousands of years, human history is full of this, and the reason it doesn't work is that one opposing action will always cause another opposing reaction. Cause and effect come to mind, one opposing cause will only create an opposing effect. Sticking ourselves in a safe box is in opposition to what is judged by us thus in turn creating an opposing effect or reaction.

With the Orlando shootings, all this has told me is how bias and even prejudice we have become mainly because we have stuck ourselves in this box, within our little safe haven, which certainly keeps us ignorant to what is occurring in the rest of our environment.  Of course western people will deny everything I have stated here as negative and certainly not in reference to them, but the truth is in the pudding, we certainly need to wake up to this if we really want to make a long term difference.

Denial is a pretence to truth, however, eventually the real truth comes forth for pretence is only a transitory state that never lasts. Truth always prevails over pretence and denial for truth is anything but transitory.....Mathew


We don't have or create these safe havens (box's) for no reason, as I said, these box's are usually comforting to us and we often feel safer in these box's than outside the box, they are actually a must to balance out the external influences with internal influences. It's actually not good for a consciousness to feel unsafe (insecure) all of the times, in actuality, these box's help us cope better with existence as a whole either it be of materialism or spiritualism or what ever.

You could say that each box gives us a different perception of who we are as a whole, we however often become that fixated to a box, that all other box's (perceptions) just don't exist or their perceptions are above and more correct over all other perceptions (box's). Is spirituality some how above materialism? Is materialism some how above spiritualism? Each person within their box would state they are above the other in some way, this in turn shows us how bias each perception can become. 

Now a person who goes beyond the limitations of their own box to experience and become aware of other box's (perceptions), will of course become more aware and wise of the whole self while not judging one box being above another in anyway. All these perceptions make up a whole consciousness, take away a perception (box), you take away the wholeness of a consciousness. A fragmented consciousness will always lash out as one chosen box is above all other box's. Is science somehow above spirituality? A consciousness that is of the box of science, will say most definitely as would a consciousness of the box of spirituality. Within this mentality, each consciousness will stay ignorant to the other no matter what. We have actually created a reality based on this kind of ignorance and segregation, of course there's going to be no peace and harmony, only within our own box will this be the case.

Staying within our own box of course isn't going to bring a long lasting harmony either, each box eventually clashes with another box in the end unless we force our own perceptions (box) onto others so we all exist within one box and one box only. You could call this oneness being that all consciousnesses is forced to perceive the same, in actually, this is far from the truth. Oneness takes a consciousness to accept and become aware of all of the other box's (perceptions), not just one box.

Can our safe haven keep us bias/prejudice ignorant, hateful and intolerant of other people's safe havens? Recent and present events certainly say most definitely, for our own box certainly can create a bias and prejudice beyond the acceptance of other box's (perceptions). It's a sad day when one catastrophe becomes more of an issue than more serious grotesque catastrophe's happening in the world today at present. Human consciousness as a whole is screaming at us as each catastrophe is screaming at us to change our obvious bias and prejudices, the more we ignore this screaming, the more catastrophe's we will experience until we start to listen......
