An Endless Unity

If our local conditions are assumed to be all there is, we only adjust to the local circumstances. We just keep responding to external pressures without considering anything further out, and our human psyche doesn’t have its own initiatives. We only serve whoever happens to dominate our environment.

Yet, the local conditions are not fundamental or permanent. We need to remember that they are just one incidental part of an infinite number of potentials stemming from the unknown source much further out.

Once this is recognized, we can still continue to make practical solutions on the local level, but the enduring question marks about what is most ultimate cause us to explore the whole range of possibilities, eventually leading to the most optimal option.

Given the ultimate mystery, having a positive relationship with the inscrutable eternal essence becomes most relevant. Since no option can be ruled out as to this level, pure idealism is perfectly justifiable. Although we do not know the specifics out there, being on good terms with the supreme truth makes perfect sense.

Thus, the most advanced human beings end up being fully idealistic. Despite experiencing various negative events within their local scale, they manage to acknowledge that the most eternal condition on the broadest level must be totally optimal. In the process of establishing what is most ideal, they become aware of the most primary subtle inclinations of their own inner nature - something that many other people never reach.

Acquiring such profound self-knowledge turns out to be common to all humans who are spiritually active. It is universal, since relating to the broadest reality represents what is most essential. By then, our final preferences become clear and obvious. For instance, despite different ways of expressing their ideas, Buddha, Christ, and Muhammad all presented essentially the same values, even though they came from different societies at different eras.
