The answer to the above is simple.
Because there is no reality in the world.
According to a study, no two persons see the world in the same way. Each one of us lives in her own reality, in her own heaven or hell as you may say, with a very unique view of the world.
Because inside of us we wear unique lenses.
It is those which colour our vision, uniquely.
We posses deep inside, the same Omnipotence as that of the all powerful creative essence. We also possess the perfect super-consciousness. Yet we have an overarching free will.
Through the use of this free will, we create our own world, our very own space filled with our limitations and our wonders. This isn’t good or bad, it just makes us unique. This free will creates the lenses through which we perceive the world as we want to.
I met a person, a new immigrant, who was struggling. I asked him about his life.
“There is discrimination. They won’t allow any immigrant to rise.”
When I pointed out that immigrants were holding great positions also, he just said
“Sir, you are naive.”
Our views are not borne out of any study or data. They are just truths we create of our own.
Damaging, self limiting ‘truths’.
Then I met some immigrants who were successful. One of them said
“It is a great country which values merit.”
The same place, two different lenses.
“Every person has a lesson to learn. Nature makes us wear the lenses through which we will experience the goodness and the pain which are needed for those lenses. Just like the settings for a class of Literature and Chemistry are different, so are the settings for our life lenses unique.”
Hence when I tell someone that beyond this veil of limitations lies a resplendent Omnipotence, some laugh at me while others resonate.
Depends on which lenses they wear at that time. Depends on what they are ready to see.
My teacher once told me
“When you want to inform someone of the spiritual truth of oneness, try saying it once, gently. Then once more, with equal kindness. If the person is not responsive, do not press the point at all. Respect the unique lesson she has to learn. Let the Universe teach her. One day we will all converge to the truth. Let that day and method be the choice of that person.”
