Invalidating a greater perspective


"Is a viewpoint valid, if someone believes in an adult version of Father Christmas?"

I met this comment as a gesture of refusal to even begin to consider anything apparently religious to have any viewpoint to consider or learn from - apart from reinforcing a self-righteousness of superiority in one's own terms.

Your viewpoint has a validity in that you are no more or less valid than any other human being. That doesn't mean your viewpoint is true, but it means that you are not invalidated by that you are using something and making it true for you at some level.

If you felt the symbol of giving is useful to its reality, you might not need the symbol to do more than work as a focus for intention attention.

If you were to be open to that quality of existence that is a presence and a gift, it may dawn on you in all sorts of ways as a result.

What life is, is something that comes through us and shares itself to then reflects to us.

The symbol of getting is one that takes forms of meaning out of context and redefines to a self-defined context so as to replace art of living with artifice.

So if I said that I still believed in Santa, the fact that I believed it is valid, but not the belief.
 
The validity of a belief is a matter a the context of its service to the one who uses it. The criteria YOU set forth reflect you own beliefs and goals. If what serves another does not serve you, it does not mean you have invalidated it in your brother, or that your brother is invalidated by his choosing it.

If you would have freedom to uncover the truth of your living and being, then by allowing others to find theirs will you advance more surely.

If you want to define and determine reality so as to be valid at the cost of another's invalidity, you will only seed conflict and define yourself valid in opposition.

You have a sense that beliefs can be stepping stones and give off a sense that you are beyond all childish need for belief in external forms of support for the sense of identity currently active within your life.

It is not that you are invalidated by seeking to be right over and against another's wrong - but that this psychological defence is part of a hidden 'belief' in magic.

The disregard of the mind by scientific orthodoxy is a self-inflicted blindness. Opening a greater perspective is generally a result of 'loving thine enemy' in some sense of a shift of insight to that one is encountering one's own unconscious reflections and projections - but in terms designed to remain 'hidden' unrecognised and justly hated.

Truth is already. In seeking to create definitions - as if its 'discovery' in definition is testament to self - and validation of self, we persist an invalidity of identification. And such a sense of self-defensiveness will interpret all things in a manner that inhibits a unified perspective.
