The True Nature of Reality

Musing Thoughts

I am interested in gathering information on the true nature of reality. I do not believe we really know at this time. If we did there would be no wars, famine, homelessness and a myriad of other really intolerable situations.

I find that as I ponder this train of thought it seems clear to me that there are many beliefs but few knowings. I get a glimps of something, from the perifial vision as it were, but no solid facts.

To me, religion is the main problem. Too many leaders counting their ways to "heaven" and how and why you can or can not get there yourself. A lot of control and fear by brainwashing.

A study in Buddhism trains the mind to quite and hear the inner self directing us to the higher awareness of self. How to achieve enlightenment through meditation, eating and living a non-violent life, and helping others to do the same.

What is the true nature of reality?

I AGREE WITH RELIGION IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. QUIT THE MIND AND LISTEN TO THE INNER SELF IS KEY.

Recently I have been studying the Tao De Ching. It goes back 2500 years. About the same time as the Buddha. There have been many interpretations over the years. Recently Dr Wayne Dyer wrote his interpretation in a book titles the “Tao De Ching.” It is also on CD. It is very good and easy to read and understand. . The essence of the Tao is loving kindness. Treat self and other with caring compassion. There is no fear or judgment or control in these writings. Unlike the traditional religious teaching which are filled with that type of rhetoric. To much of the hell, fire and brimstone.
