FACTOR # 27. There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.

We find Man in a state in which he is identifying himself with his subjective viewpoint. In other words, he entertains fixed ideas, prejudices and beliefs, and he is fixated on his view of things. Salvation lies in letting go of such fixations and arriving at the objectivity of the universal viewpoint.

But it is very hard to let go of such fixations in the absence of better clarity of view. It is a Catch-22. It requires wide study of life and the scriptures of your religion and that of other religions too; and resolving all contradictions, doubts and perplexities thus found.

KHTK FACTOR # 27: The ultimate beingness is attained by moving beyond the subjective viewpoint attached to the human body and arriving at the objectivity of the universal viewpoint.



It is important to experience life and become aware of all its anomalies (inconsistencies, disharmonies and discontinuities). To resolve such anomalies, one may study not only the scriptures of one’s own religion but of all religions in the world.

Most important is to resolve for oneself the doubts, perplexities and confusions that one comes across.
