The Purpose of this Website
Many of you may know the poem called The Blind Men and the Elephant about six blind men’s interpretation of an elephant. Each man feels part of the elephant and comes to a conclusion. The first blind man describes the elephant as a wall; the second as a spear; the third as a snake; the fourth as a tree; the fifth as a fan; and the sixth as a rope. The poem ends as follows:
And so these men of IndostanVector8 Journals is the equivalent of the six blind men giving different perspectives of Truth. The purpose of this website is to focus on the whole elephant, Oneness. By Oneness I mean that there is One Self in all. Thus, oneness is the realisation that the body, tusk, trunk, legs, ear and tail of the elephant are expressions of the One. Put another way, no matter what the appearances only One exists.
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!
The writings on this website are demonstrations of Oneness.
Love and Light,
