209. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WHOLE

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WHOLE

Even if none of the evidence for the existence of GOD is absolute proof, the great power stems from a combination of these arguments. They can be seen as a move that indicates a series of unexpected “leaps” within reality. The first leap is in this vein, which states that something exists and that something appeared after it did not exist and implies a moment of causality. Yet, that causal feature must itself be uncaused, or else there will be an infinite regress, a non-starter (the cosmological evidence).

The second leap is ordering chaos by the laws (of nature). It is the emergence of a permanent law according to which all parts of the universe move — the evidence from the laws of nature and the intelligent design of nature.

The third leap is the inanimate to living organisms: the emergence of living organisms, constituting the most complex works in the universe (further evidence from design/complexity). The fourth leap is a life for the possessor of consciousness: the emergence of consciousnesses in general, and human consciousness in particular, capable of understanding the universe (the evidence from consciousness). The fifth leap is from consciousness to morality: the existence of moral intuitions that indicate the existence of absolute good and evil (the evidence from morality). Finally, the sixth leap is from an ordinary experience to an experience of religious revelation.

Atheists want the world to believe that all these leaps happened by chance due to no more than the activity of inanimate particles of matter and blind forces of nature. Accordingly, the universe appeared and continues to be by chance, and by chance, there is permanent law, and by chance, life emerged from matter, and by chance, it developed consciousness. But how likely is it all this happened by chance? It already requires much more blind faith because there is no evidence that all these things actually happened by chance, neither from experience nor intuition. It is also highly unlikely that everything was synchronized by chance to bring about sentient life.

It teaches restraint, moderation, humility, and the work of virtue, instead of hedonism, partying, and the pursuit of honor and achievement. It gives meaning to human life — the private, the People of Israel, and all of humanity — and sets ideals, visions, and goals to strive for at the level of the individual and the whole. This is in contrast to a desperate and empty worldview according to which existence is meaningless.

So, in the end, even those who are not one hundred percent convinced of the evidence for the existence of GOD and the power of the Judaic vision can choose to adopt it because of the quality and value of the lifestyle it presents. After all, even secularism does not have absolute evidence of its correctness.

YOUR SOUL NEEDS SPIRITUALITY BUT YOU ONLY TRUST REALITY & FACTS

In the spiritual world reside the forces that operate our lives in daily reality. Get to know them, because your happiness depends on them.

While we are selfish creatures with survival mechanisms and animal instincts to achieve more than we need, we’re also wired (DNA & neurotheology) for spirituality and to live for the greater good, for the higher self. For that reason, we are wired to protect our spouse, our family, our country, and be connected to a higher spirituality we call GOD (whatever it is).

We seek to connect to the highest authority which is above human sensual perception. We seek a GOD to be our ultimate guide. Not the GOD that the religions created for us with endless restrictions and imaginary hell and heaven, but the true real GOD.

This book sums up thousands of years and debates to one practical conclusion: is it good for humans to have and believe in (a) GOD or not.

While emerging in the debate, keep an open mind and ignore any religious misconception of who GOD really is. You are here because you care to know if there is a higher authority and if your life will be more fulfilled with GOD in it. You want to know if spirituality is good for you.

WHEN DO YOU FEEL SPIRITUALITY?

The spirit is invisible, but it is revealed in every phenomenon in life that means oneness. It is revealed the moment you look into a person’s eyes and discover that you both feel the same. Spirituality is revealed as soon as you do something that makes others a caravan of joy. It is revealed the moment someone refers to you and you refer to him, and you are both aware of each other’s existence. As a Roman poet so beautifully put it: “Outside all the notions of good and evil there is a field. Will you meet me there?”

Socrates was said to have not come from Athens, but from the world. You and I are two aspects of one reality, united and all-embracing. In unity no differences are eliminated. For things to unite, they do not have to lose their individual identities.  In unity only the separation between them is abolished, which is the difference in value and importance. Then it turns out that everything is one thing.
