FAILURE OF RECOGNITION
--THE UNDERSTANDING OF SUFFERING STARTS
HERE
There exists a realm of perfection. A realm created by
Power and Wisdom where suffering does not exist.
Suffering has no place in the realm of Power and Wisdom
because ignorance (the source of suffering) had been kicked
out of their abode.
Power and Wisdom were one and the same entity who
decided to separate their functions in the same fashion as a
government which even though is one body, separates its
functions into the executive and legislature.
In the separation of functions between Power and Wisdom,
Wisdom decided to lower herself in order to serve Power
even though she knew she was equal with Power.
By lowering herself to serve Power, Wisdom became the
sole conduit to Power since all of Power was in Wisdom.
ignorance was the opposite of Wisdom and that was why he
had no place in the perfect realm.
Wisdom was naturally humble and so lowered herself on her
own accord to serve Power.
ignorance was naturally prideful and tried to exalt himself to
the same level as Power.
Wisdom is the source of Truth.
ignorance is the source of Lies.
Wisdom through Truth has foreknowledge of all things.
ignorance operates retroactively for he has no
foreknowledge. Probability is the only tool available to
ignorance when attempting to display foreknowledge.
Wisdom sees the Truth in all things.
ignorance only sees the outward appearance of things.
Wisdom is not saddled with insatiable desire.
ignorance has an unquenchable desire called passion.
Wisdom is free of all things.
ignorance is yoked with innumerable burdens.
When ignorance with his myriad problems was kicked out
of the perfect realm of Power and Wisdom, he became
homeless with no place to reside.
He moved about aimlessly and restlessly looking for a place
to live for he had no ability to create his own realm.
As ignorance moved about, he discovered that a new realm
had been created by Power and Wisdom which was
modeled on the original realm of perfection.
The newly created realm was given its own version of Power
and Wisdom which they named little Power and little
Wisdom. Originally fashioned as one body, but later
transformed into two separate but equal parts of the same
body.
This was done to better reflect the original realm of
perfection.
After the separation of little Power and little Wisdom in
the new realm was completed, the newly created little
Power laid eyes on the newly created little Wisdom and
desired her greatly for he knew he was not complete without
his little Wisdom.
Other entities were created in the new realm to represent
various attributes of life.
The donkey was created to represent stubbornness.
The horse was created to represent majesty and gracefulness.
The deer represented speed and swiftness.
The eagle represented the all-seeing eyes of Truth.
The lion represented Power.
The snake represented Wisdom (this was because the snake
was given no hands or legs and yet was given the ability to
do things no other entity could. The snake did all these
things as a display of Wisdom, which needs nothing in order
to function).
Life was good in the new realm but ignorance was still
homeless and desperately looking for a new home. He saw
an opportunity to take over the newly created realm, so he
devised a plot.
ignorance understood the only way to take Power in the new
realm was to go through Wisdom.
ignorance began his agenda by first taking the form of the
entity created to represent Wisdom (which is the snake).
ignorance used this strategy with the intent to engage and
corrupt the little Wisdom of the new realm. For ignorance
understood that if he could corrupt the little Wisdom of the
new realm, he would easily corrupt little Power as well,
thereby controlling both little Power and little Wisdom
within the new realm and transform the new realm into the
abode of ignorance.
ignorance succeeded in his agenda of taking control of the
new realm from its inhabitants and established himself as the
sole authority of the new realm.
ignorance was successful in his plot because he put on the
outward appearance of Wisdom and thus confused the
inexperienced inhabitants of the new realm, for they had not
mastered the ability to look within for the Truth instead of
looking at the outward appearance.
If the inhabitants of the new realm had looked inward for the
Truth, they would have recognized the trick ignorance was
playing on them and not have fallen for it.
Unfortunately for the inhabitants of the new realm, their
inability to look at what comes from the inside instead of
being fixated with the outward appearance led to the loss of
authority to ignorance.
Once ignorance took control of the new realm, he brought
his belongings and made a home for himself in the new
realm.
ignorance was no longer homeless. His belongings which
he brought with him were; lies, suffering, pride, death and
many other fruits of ignorance.
Once ignorance took hold of the new realm, chaos was born.
Little Power got mad at little Wisdom and blamed her for
surrendering their authority to ignorance.
Little Power in his angry state became oppressive instead of
gentle.
Little Power began to look only for his own well-being
instead of caring for the inhabitants of the new realm.
Little Power even began to believe the reason he lost his
authority to ignorance was because he did not have enough
Wisdom by his side. Realizing the importance of Wisdom
in the retention of Power, Power began looking for and
attaching himself to multiple versions of any little Wisdom
he could find with the hope of getting his authority back.
It did not work. It exacerbated the chaos.
The original Wisdom from the perfect realm saw the
confusion in the new realm and so she decided to personally
come and get rid of ignorance and restore order by giving
the authority stolen by ignorance back to little Power and
little Wisdom.
But before banishing ignorance from the new realm, the
original Wisdom decided to personally teach little Power
and little Wisdom how to identify the Truth from within
instead of looking at the outward appearance.
This was necessary, for the original Wisdom knew that once
little Power and little Wisdom mastered the ability of
proper recognition by not looking at the face but the body of
work produced, they will never again fall prey to the
machinations of ignorance.
So, the original Wisdom came to the new realm to restore
the order but before she chased out ignorance, she had the
inhabitants of the new realm practice the art of Truth
recognition by covering their faces so that they might learn
not to look at the face but instead, the hands and the works
of the one they seek to identify.
It was a challenging exercise for the inhabitants of the new
realm to have to learn how to cover their faces, for they just
did not know how to identify the Truth without fixating on
the face and outward appearance.
Painful exercise? Yes. Was it necessary? Absolutely! For
without it, ignorance will try to take hold again by utilizing
the outward appearance to deceive.
