We, without Fault

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Who of us is without fault? Who can claim understanding without the ravages of life’s action and the retribution and attainment of balance through suffering consequences? Who of us can claim definitive knowledge about the nature of existence?

We are mere novices within the stream of life. Human beings are arrogant and vacuous in thinking that any belief structure will deliver us to absolute truth. It is not the knowledge that can be doubted but our capacity to conceive of it.

Human beings have written about perceived truths from the beginning of time. Beliefs, religions and ideologies that prescribe the answers to all our questions about our lives and the state of our existence, have always been accepted. In realistic terms these meager attempts are no more than projections of the will of men, not God or anyone else. The answers are simply unattainable. They are not hidden, need interpretation or anything else, they are beyond our ability to understand.

We are imperfect beings and much of our experience in life is about realizing what not to do. Suffering and pain are as much a part of life as love, attainment and enlightenment. Without suffering, we would not learn nor expand our consciousness and awareness.

Wisdom comes from life’s enactment of balance, we the catalyst by wrongdoing. By creating imbalance and suffering the ramifications we may learn our folly and we hope remedy that action for the future. This gaining of wisdom is a necessary part of spiritual growth but does not infer any definitive understanding of the world, just a small fragment of it. None of us can claim that. The people, who do, religious or spiritual leaders, politicians and the like, do so to encourage unquestionable commitment to their ideology, not for truth but for their own agendas.

No holy book has been written by God or any omniscient being. It may be claimed so, by an earthly medium or such, but in reality scriptures were written by men. Religion was initiated by people wanting to give thanks for their lives and wanting to be protected against the harshness of life: having good crops, no pestilence or drought. This idea of worshop and praying was in fact an insurance and security, an acceptance of a higher power taking control and responsibility from mere humans. That assurance gave comfort and a justification, adding another value in life.

So it’s been for thousands of years, men given purpose by inconclusive ideologies and the words of men, professed to be the words of God. Corruption is a composite part of humanity, a reason there is so much suffering in the world. But without it where would we be, what would we learn from and how would we know the difference between positive and negative?

Religion aside, one has to conclude that if there is a purpose in life it is to make better what we are inherently. Progression on every level must be a purpose; otherwise our faults and the action of ‘cause and effect’ would be pointless. If balance is a natural state of nature and the universe, then we have to assume that this is our goal also. The suffering of humankind is simply the lessons of balance for us to correct to experience a happy and fulfilling life. Unfortunately we are stubborn beings and our faults manifest in harmful actions like greed, judgement and hate.

When will we learn? We, without fault, step forward.
