Neil Kramer returns to discuss Roots of Hidden Reality:

The great ontological questions.
These questions should be asked and answered -personally - on a regular basis. See how they change and how the quality of answer improves. Why are we here? What are we supposed to do? What are we? What does it mean? How can we know more?

Philosophy teaches us how to think about these things. It is abstract. Mysticism teaches us what to do about them. It is experiential. The mystic uses their own self and being as the instrument for inquiry.

The root teachings.

What are they? Their contemplation and resolution through direct human experience.

Three kinds of happiness.
Pleasure (diversion). Passion (engagement). Higher Being (transformation).

The "fulfillment-distraction" equation.
Are we expressing and satisfying ourselves? Is everything OK?

The drug of phenomenal information.

What helps and what doesn’t? Gauging quality, relevance and truth.

Universal safety valve of ego positioning.
Without higher being, no higher knowledge can be understood or transmitted.

Governmental authority starting to fail.
Loss of faith. Political meltdown. Middle class losing belief in authority.

Philosophically, there are no rights.
This is a good thing. We are just here. There are only guidelines for lucid thoughts and noble deeds.

Where are the wise elders?
The presence and absence of wise elders in our communities. How it influences our behavior and maturation.

Spiritual development determines wholeness and fragmentation.
Fragmentation is painful. People in pain behave badly. We call that evil. Evil people are simply disoriented fragmented people. I might kill such a person myself if they got in my way or threatened my peace, but I know they’re not evil. On the other hand, there is wholeness. Wholeness feels good. Whole people behave well. Wholeness stems from spiritual development. Fragmentation from the lack of it.
