Does there exist a dichotomy in the promotion and use of ideology? Is this concept similar to the dichotomy between mysticism and science, which are respectfully, opposing world views?
What about the grey area that exists in both? How do we understand the grey area in relation to the pros and cons of the promotion and use of ideology?
What is the definition of a grey area? To me, a grey area is similar to a shell on the beach opened up to the sky. This shell experiences the touch of sand and the touch of salt water, a dichotomy, or two opposing natural elements in relation to its surface. In order to discover understanding in the difference between these two elements, a third element, rain water, causes an effect on the shell of washing its surface clean of the first two elements. Now we know by the experience of the shell, that two identified natural elements interacted with it, sand and salt water. We also know that a grey area or “combination” of sand and salt water also interacted with it. We know that sand made the shell’s surface gritty. And salt water made it wet with a coating of sea salt solution. We also know that the shell experienced a “grey area” or this physical combination of both elements to its surface. The revealing of what the shell experienced came in a third element, rain water, and its effect of washing the shell clean of the other two elements. The revealing of the dichotomy in the difference between the first two physical characteristics of sand and salt water, is the demonstration of each element’s individual characteristics and their combined characteristics effects on the surface of the shell, and also the interaction of the third element, as it revealed the cleansing of the first two elements from the shell’s surface.
To me, the promotion and use of ideology has a similar play. Ideology promoted in truth and used to be of service and for the greater good, yields meaningful benefits to a greater number. The demonstration of these benefits is a working construction of the ideology in social construction of our lives. In contrast, ideology promoted and used only for the profit of a single individual or a small number, or a group, at the expense of any portion of mankind, reveals the less worthy means to its end. A demonstration in this sort of social construction of an ideology would reveal its limited use in the lives of a few, as well as how the limited use adversely effects the greater number of a social construction. The results, or what was given by the promotion and use of an ideology, reveals the way in which it was used, either for worthy means or less worthy means.
Like rainwater reveals the individual and combined effects of sand and salt water to the shell’s surface, messages from our Creator through our act of prayer, reveal the way to understand whether or not an ideology is for our highest good.
The following poem is a view our Creator gave me from Heaven, on how to understand whether or not illusion is behind the promotion and use of ideology and that through prayer to Him, we can understand how to discern whether to accept the ideological concept or not, as having meaning to our lives important for our existence. These messages from Him are made known to our consciousness through our higher selves.
“Do you see me hovering in the treetops high?”
“I see you lovely Dragon Fly,” said I.
“You are made of snow crystals and God’s sunlight.”
Oh Dragon Fly propelling wind in the sky,
The wind of ideology, sent into earth’s eye,
Help me see between truth and lie,
Through the menagerie of illusions in our space time,
In our forests and structures, in the living of our lives.
Bring your iridescence close by.
Glide God’s beauty of love and light,
In your miraculous poised and speedy flight.
Take away the dark of night,
And reveal God’s truth for me in bright luminous light.
Protect me from projections of intent,
Swirling around the environment,
To confuse and mislead the living of my efforts,
Keep me safe through God’s messages sent.
Thank you God for sending Dragon Fly.
His bright vibrations caught my eye.
When I lifted up to YOU Lord, in the treetops high.
That snowy day on a wooded way,
You were just in time Lord, just in time,
To save me from a deceiver’s rhyme.
Glory to YOU Lord,
I am filled with your sunshine.
