There is a reality to life beyond the rational.
There is no need to access it since it accesses us.
If we feel the need to access it,
it is the need that is the problem, not the access.
***
The rational likes to believe that it is all there is,
but this belief is irrational.
Rationality must understand that it is an activity taking place
in a field which is a reality beyond our capacity for rational understanding.
Rationality is forever challenged, and this is a good thing.
If Rationality is allowed to believe itself to be all there is without challange,
it becomes irrational and delights is tyranny.

Reality is the Field in which we exist,
and it is this Field which has all the power, (and is the true 'force')
only some of which we are lent (for a time) to do good on its behalf
and to challenge the irrational belief that rationality is all there is,
thus doing our part to put to rest the cause of human suffering.
This is the true belief that flies in the face of the false belief,
and it is false belief, ignorance of true belief,
that is the cause of all human suffering.

If not put forward by strong believing men and women
who are and understand the real humanity, true belief
would be easily and gladly overlooked by the humanity
who believe that it is correct to believe in the false belief
that individual rational learning is all there is,
that the world is competitive,
as in two or more,
and that somehow their salvation lies in the preservation
and perpetuation of this strange and incorrect belief.

Ignorance is the cause of suffering.
Ignorance is deliberate, not accidental, as it is made up to be.
It means to ignore, and to ignore means to deliberatele turn one's back.
So don't turn your back when the true belief is offered you.
It may be that you love a thing that is harmful to you.

It is this irrational belief in itself as all there is
that is the cause of human conflict and suffering.


There is a reality to life beyond the rational.
There is no need to access it since it accesses us.
If we feel the need to access it,
it is the need that is the problem, not the access.
