the pollution of the ages

“Just expand and illuminate the original truth unconcerned by external conditions.”

Monk Hongzhi

“Unconcerned by external conditions” – so I am not swayed from my understanding of the original truth, no matter what elections take place and what results appear. My actions remain in alignment with my deepest understanding of this original truth.

What is meant by ‘the original truth’? One aspect of my understanding of the original truth is expressed in the following passage, in which David Bohm states his vision for humanity:

Continuing with this theme on the transformation of consciousness, Bohm goes on to suggest that an intense heightening of individuals who have shaken off the “pollution of the ages” (wrong worldviews that propagate ignorance), who come into close and trusting relationship with one another, can begin to generate the immense power needed to ignite the whole consciousness of the world. In the depths of the Implicate Order, there is a “consciousness, deep down–of the whole of mankind.”
Bohm’s overall vision of human destiny is short and straightforward: “The consciousness of mankind is one and not truly divisible.” It is the responsibility of each human person to contribute towards this understanding of the consciousness of mankind. Nothing is more important. “There is no other way out. That is absolutely what has to be done and nothing else can work.”
