Eyeless in Gaza

Description:

Aldous Huxley in his book, Eyeless in Gaza, essentially about love and betrayal says: “Hell is the incapacity to be other thatn the creature one finds one’s self ordinarily behaving as.” This suggests the mood of betrayal, since there is no creative capacity to be other than what one is enslaved to be.
Most of us are aware of the expression, “We are our own worst enemy.” This suggests that we are divided within ourselves and at war with our best intentions. We say we want to love, but remain negative and confused about what loving amounts to. A street child was heard to say, “Yes, they say they really love you, but I think, if they really loved you they would make a difference to all these children who are homeless.” Therefore there is a great gap between some spoken positivity and the actual demonstration that would amount to transforming the disturbed condition. This split in our being, that is the betrayal of the heart of truth, thwarts the progress of the unfolding of Truth in the world. Apart from this self-sabotage, we are sabotaged endlessly by those immediately in association with us who simply do not understand and this division in ourselves creates a sympathetic opening for those who are our self-declared enemies. This Energy reveals all of this betrayal of self and other and floods it with the spotlight of the Truth of us. All is revealed, all is known. None can escape the heart of truth, not even the ‘eyeless in Gaza’.
