Mystery Eternal


Life is a mystery. Only poetry can scratch its surface…

Find below a poem which I found in the Internet and which illustrates in the most beautiful way why we may be resistiant to the idea that we are all part of the One many philosophers and mystics talked about…

Well, no more talking. Enjoy.

Mystery Eternal

Pearls are born
of irritation
Diamonds are born
from pressure

Resistance to change
will leave no growth
but surely a call
to return
again and again

to learn the lessons
that bring us
to awareness
of the Light
that overpowers
all shadows of doubt

It is our mind
used in selfish ways
that brings the
darkness within

as we cannot believe
that we are all
part of this

by Cecil B. Lee

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
