Chapter Six "Different Points of View: Universal Consciousness and Separate Consciousness"
Metaphorical Car of Life
Here’s a mediocre
allegory that will help illustrate the point, using a modern frame of reference
you are familiar with. Let’s say
there is a classic car in a parking lot. The
car is badly damaged on one side, but looks like new on the other.
Two people going through the parking lot, walk by the car, one on each side. One person’s point of view is from the bad side, one from
the good. As they walk by, they
each see the car, make a judgment, and form ‘clear’, solid beliefs about the
condition of the car. Because of
their limited viewpoints, they are each left with totally different beliefs
about the car. And each person’s
belief opposes and contradicts the other’s.
One believes that the car is in impeccable classic condition, and very
valuable. To the other person, the
car is in such bad shape they couldn’t even tell it was a classic - it just
looks like an old junk car to them. And
that’s what that person believes the car is - an old junker.
They are both right, from their point of view. Yet if you could see the entire car from above [Author’s
note: see illustration], from our point of view, they are both totally
right and both totally wrong.
How can they both be right, when each viewpoint would seem to make the
other wrong, or impossible to be true? And how can they both be wrong, when they
are obviously both right from their point of view?
The fact is that when you simultaneously grasp the two
contradictory, yet true, beliefs, you actually have the greater truth about the
car. This predicament of having two
truths, each of which seem to make it impossible for the other to be true, is a
crude sort of paradox. And a
paradox is the closest thing you can get to real truth, or whole truth, on the
Earth plane [explained elsewhere in the book]. This example shows us how we can
see the whole truth if we get above and beyond each individual’s point of
view. Only then can we see
the ‘whole’ picture.”
From our lofty point
of view above the illustration, we have combined the points of view, and can see
that while the car is a classic, it would need a lot of work to
put it in show condition. And while
we see the damage, we also see that it is a classic, and not just some
piece of junk to have hauled away.
