VIDEO: Being in the World, But not of the World, is a Lonely Road to Walk

85 0

Being in the world but not of the world on a philosophical level (Truth, integrity, authenticity, non-egocentric living, enlightenment, etc.) is indeed difficult…but once you realize that you are in the world but not of the world on a spiritual level, it becomes a little easier…or at least a little more peaceful.

On the other hand, as Crista Solano points out in the below video, it is still a lonely road to walk.

I believe that Jesus was trying to teach us how to live—how to conduct ourselves individually—in order to manifest paradise/heaven on earth/the kingdom of God, in consonance with Tolstoy, who believed that the kingdom of God is within us, and in consonance with Joseph Campbell, who said “the kingdom of God is in the hearts of men”, both citing Jesus’s statement from Luke 17:20-21:

“And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God cometh, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, There! for lo, the kingdom of God is within you.”

And readers of my blog already know that I have come to believe, in consonance with Gandhi as stated in his book Truth is God, and with A. G. Sertillag3es, O.P.—author of The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods—that Truth is God, or at least Truth is Divine. As I often state:

“Truth is eternal, and therefore Divine; thus my quest for Truth is, in essence, a Spiritual one.”

All that said, I began my own quest for Truth nearly 30 years ago, and can absolutely relate to Crista’s almost surreal feeling of isolation and alienation from the mainstream of society today.

I debated sharing this video, but felt compelled; just understand that everyone’s interpretation of the teachings of Jesus can differ, as can their understanding of/relationship with God. But I think the overarching concept of good vs. evil—or as she characterizes it, Truth vs. deception—can be the common thread, the unifying determinant.
