We are a Blind Species

by David Nova

The old adage, “seeing is believing,” has kept humanity locked in darkness for thousands of years. Human beings are perceptually imprisoned by their own five senses, or lack there of. If we can’t see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, or touch it, then it’s generally not real for us. Thus our facility for reason and imagination are important tools to bridge the gap of our own senses.

Upon the Shore of Eternity

by David Nova

Attempting to describe Eternity in human words is a difficult task. When we paint a picture with words we often get hung up on their literal meaning.  The rational mind likes to debate subtle definitions. The rational mind prefers the 3 dimensional boundaries of form. There is a sense of security in form, a familiar structure, linear movement, a beginning and an end. There is definition in form, a sense of discrete identity, no matter how limited it may be.

Happiness and Empathy

by David Nova

Why do I write about happiness at a time when the world seems to be falling apart? Because after some deep contemplation, the pursuit of happiness and our illusions about happiness seem to be at the root of the human condition. Our desire for happiness is universal. It connects us.

So much of our temporal happiness and unhappiness is rooted in illusion, in magical thinking, which then becomes our expectations.

Happiness and the Light

by David Nova

I’m sure the vast majority of non-aligned individuals see themselves as good people, and they generally are. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a happy life for yourself and your family, so there’s no significant judgment here. The non-aligned are equally aspects of Source, they’ve simply forgotten who they are.  However being “good” is not the same as being “the Light.” It doesn’t rise to the same level of consciousness. The non-aligned light candles in the darkness for themselves and their loved ones. Those on the Light Path shine their inner light to brighten the entire world.

Happiness and Alignment

by David Nova

The universal desire for happiness connects us, yet it doesn’t necessarily make us morally good, particularly when an aspect of competition enters human beliefs and human interactions. Do we share joy or do we compete for happiness? Is our own happiness more important than our neighbor’s happiness? Do our own needs outweigh the needs of others? This is the very foundation of the moral alignments represented in the Ra Material.
