#duality is the enemy... In the modern #west we are constantly participating, whether we choose to be aware of it or not, in a game of #good vs #bad , #wrong vs #right , #light vs #dark , #black vs #white . The Western emphasis on logic and rational thought by way of Descartes and Kant now has us obsessed with focusing on #differences . Scientific method. Control of natural processes. The vertical ascent. To where? Nobody quite knows.
In the #east , cultures have been born from a seed valuing #balance and #harmony . Eastern philosophy tends to focus on a horizontal matrix of #similarities , as opposed to differences. Personal transformation and ascension to accept and transcend suffering in the human form is the goal. The Tao. Nonlinear time. #synchronicity
Back in the age of ancient Greek philosophy, there were more similarities between East and West. "Know thyself" was the drive of the greatest efforts to delve into the nature of man and the universe. Mystery schools were prevalent from the Levant to the Emerald Isle. There was an understanding of the subtle energies that must be dug up with careful consideration and observation. We have lost touch with this connection. Academia and popular culture have alienated the pursuit of the true understanding of selfhood away from the individual, and into the establishment collective. This devolution has hit a critical point where it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to educate themselves with a reduction in bias, and equally as difficult to wield the wand of critical thinking in order to sift through sand for the jewels.
We do not have to fight each other to evolve our understanding.
While we yell at "Communists" and scream at "Nazis", there are children still being sold into actual slavery, there are shirts we are wearing still made in sweatshops, there are women being preyed upon, there are wars still raging.
We are not our enemy. We don't even know ourselves. We must choose to understand each other as best we can. This is our responsibility. Once we are a shining example to others and live by what we know is truth, then we can start the real work: Shining our light upon the earth with positive action.
Have you seen such delicately latticed potato crisps! This is handmade in house at @kucina_sg. We asked the owner and head chef, Chef Omar how he makes it and initially he said "How can I tell you My Secret? " but after a round of persuasion (we are very persuasive people peeps, how else can we get good deals for you? Show us some love k) he told us, but now WE will keep his secret, because, amanah (trust). Hehe. Also because after he told us, we still don't really get it. Because he didn't SHOW us 😂! This Italian Muslim chef ah, really cute you know. Ok I'll stop this rambling now. Have a good day ahead and order the Steak at Kucina to get these potato crisps! get 10% off with the @friendswithhalalfoodhunt card! Kucina Italian is Muslim-owned and verified on halalfoodhunt.com
The crash of a #Heinkel He 111B (W.Nr. 1120) DA + AZ in Jeneč, Prague-Ruzyne, Czech Republic. July 15, 1941
The crew were conducting a local training flight at nearby Prague-Ruzyne Airport. On the approach, the airplane went out of control and crashed into houses located in the village of Jeneč. The aircraft was destroyed and both pilots were killed.
The Heinkel crashed through the roof and completely demolished the house. There was only one room left intact , where Mr Rufr, a night shift railwayman was sleeping.
He survived the accident, but the crew of the airplane perished. Fortunately, there was no fire during the accident, which would almost certainly have destroyed neighbouring houses. Over the next few days, the Luftwaffe removed the debris from the houses.
Crew: Obgfr. Hans Marahrens, pilot and Obgfr. Otto Herbst, co-pilot. (Colour by Richard James Molloy)
