INTRODUCTION: HEURISTIC EXPANSE
1 ‘The Omnist Tenets’ are the beginning of the circulation of an ideal that encompasses the respect of all beliefs. A way of looking more deeply into who it is we are and how it is possible to start working together as a race of humans to strive towards an idea so far fetched, that most think it is impossible; that idea is world peace.
2 Omnism is something that exists within us, for us; it always has and always will. Many concepts are brushed upon and it is the hope that it will inspire people to think about one another, and prescribe themselves to the dedication towards hope, rather than submit to defeat.
3 It is the idea that the time we spend here in this world is the veil that separates beginning from end. In opposition to us actually taking form and substance in the physical reality that we entertain. Omnism is the concept of being something more than what we are.
4 The notion that there is an expanse within us that we have yet to allow our minds to have the capacity to comprehend.
5 Expanse through this book is hoping to spread out the words within the words and the numbers within the numbers. To break apart the things that we perceive as tangible. And expand on the idea that we would not be here without the need of that expanse having for us to reach out and touch it.
6 It is the void between our perception of what reality is and how it is we have already allowed our reality to bring form from our imaginations.
7 The barrier that exists in between that psyche and looking beyond the words and numbers that give definition to the physical attributes making up our surroundings; about negating what it is that we are told to think, to think about the things we feel, and understand how complex a simple thought is.
8 About getting into a deeper meaning and spreading out each space in between each letter that makes up each word. So that we can examine all aspects of one another’s thoughts.
9 About the web we weave for one another and about the concept of neither large nor small existing within it, rather, existing of it.
10 About how meaning becomes meaningless and back again and the fractions of thought that appear within the thoughts.
11 For the expanse of the percentage of our minds and what goes on with the percentage of it that we have yet to comprehend. So that we may venture as deeply as we will allow ourselves to go. Keeping in mind not to harm ourselves or others in the process. But, take the deeper journey into our minds so that those who live 100’s of years from now (that we may not ever see) begin to have a better understanding of who we once were.
12 Omnists are laying the groundwork for humanity to be the ancestors that started to change things in this world for the better. Rather than being the ancestors that are looked back on who continued entertaining the actions that make things worse.
1 Omnism is indeed a lot of soul searching through trial and error, but so is being human, is it not? There are many people out there that will not accept the ideal of believing in all gods and the good teachings from all religions, without committing to one religion in particular.
2 Learning about how upset this possibility makes certain individuals should not upset an Omnist. Nor is the calling of names for anything other than a jest encouraged (though it does happen).
3 Understand that the label ‘Omnist’ means that there may be a large amount of questioning sent out towards you. Other people do not want their faiths and beliefs questioned (which an Omnist is not doing). So, through years of trial and error by them, they may automatically jump to the conclusion that you, as an Omnist, are questioning how they feel. When in fact you are probably more inclined to listen to what it is they are trying to teach you, while learning more about who they/you are inside. Learning to understand how it is their idea of God, gods, enlightenment, heaven, hell, or the non-belief of the previously mentioned subjects is going to effect you.
4 It is not ones fault for understanding that a God of perfection (or any god) would demand servitude, currency, or feel the need to let you know that you are not doing right by them. For it is not any gods word that you are disobeying, it is the interpretation of the words that humans have used from any such god, not the god itself.
5 Every person knows when they have done something wrong, they don’t need to be reminded. They just need to acknowledge that they have committed an act of negativity towards another. This is how we learn what not to do, by doing. Most wrong-doings are easily forgivable by other people so long as they truly care about you. If you continue to do things wrong though, you may be taking advantage of the good graces of the other people around you.
6 This idea is not implying they no longer care for you. It means that you have not learned from the mistakes you have made and are unwilling to find the way to move forward in life, for the better of yourself and the ones you care for.
7 You may indeed care deeply for the ones around you and yet, you can’t find your own means to care properly for yourself. Your shame should be more of an inclination towards repairing your inner self, for it is not there to hurt you. It is there to remind you that you are important to the people around you, they care more for you than you care for yourself. But, you get to a point where you have over stayed your welcome and it is time they must cut loose the part of their life that is dragging them down.
8 You then, are the one that is poisoning another’s garden with the decisions that you make. It is not easy to let go of someone that you love. It is a method of tough love that many people cannot prescribe to. Thus, allowing the negativity to enter into their lives and accepting miserable situations without reaching out for something better.
9 There are negative people out there and they are vital to the idea of what good things are. They are there to hurt and they always have been. They have not learned about the feelings that have led them to the point where they choose to act in a manner of inflicting pain. Instilling and teaching methods of negativity on the people that are seeking a better standard of living.
10 The sins cause this to happen. The sins inflicted upon the negative persons that they have not taken in and adapted to how they affect others around them. If another Living has hurt you, why then would you choose to reciprocate that feeling on those that would not deserve it?
11 Negative peoples have not learned the concept of feeling better about themselves in order to ensure they do not commit these actions. It is up to the positive people to take in these negative standards and learn from them.
12 The negative people are on their own fools quest for their world, literally. But, neglecting to understand the mistakes of previous fools that have attempted to rule the literal world. It is an allure to power that will not be obtained. The literal world is not meant to be ruled, it makes its own decision and is a living thing all its own.
13 The people that stand against this negativity are typically the ones that try to instill the methods of peace and love. The ones that feel so deeply and have had empathy for that of others. These are the people that have lost their lives for this ideal of peace, becoming martyrs for an ideal of all of us to live together in peace and harmony. Greed is the largest proponent in assassinating these individuals.
14 The individuals that have wanted for nothing other than to live a life in peace and simply enjoy the sun rising day to day.
15 A person that wants for nothing is the most dangerous of people to the negative people. For they cannot be bought nor can they cannot be swayed away from the things inside of them that drive them towards trying to give the appeal of love and peace towards others. These purveyors of peace tend to be eliminated because there is no materialistic value in peace.
16 It is difficult for people to understand why they choose to live a life that would be seemingly destitute. Yet, they are the ones that are most fulfilled within. Not being able to purchase said person makes them very dangerous to those who are in a position to manipulate greed.
17 People with nothing other than the luxuries of who they are defining themselves is easy for many to understand, because they do not want to give up the things that they feel defines them. This tends to be the majority of people and there is nothing wrong with this standard of living, so long as it as earned justly.
18 There is no implication being made here that you should not enjoy the things that you work for. The implication is the idea that being happy with yourself is the utmost important thing for your soul/garden and should be valued above material things. That if you can fully indulge who you are as a good person in this world, then you can fully enjoy the things that you have earned.
19 Understand that when you find the thing you love the most then you truly understand what is most valuable. That thing may be your closest lover, a child or the puppy you just took in. It may even be yourself and the feelings that you are sending out to others.
20 The point is that when you find yourself, try to find others that share this. Steer clear of those that seek to eliminate this feeling and attempt to tell you that what you feel inside is not the right method for you. From them though, learn through trial and error about what not to take into your garden. This is not saying that the person is wrong in their view. But, the actions taken in trying to convince another of something other than what they feel, is wrong.
21 Listen to the passion of what it is they feel so strongly about. But, not so much the poison that may be spilling out of them. They do indeed have a right to say what it is they feel and, as an Omnist, it is up to you to defend more the right and the sharing of passion, rather than defend the actual words being spoken.
22 In a debate between a believer and a non-believer an on-looking Omnist should continue to walk the middle road, for they see each side of the debate. But, the words may come to a point of gibberish in the Omnists ears. They have learned how not to take sides about something that is more important for both debaters to have the need to understand the conflict, more than the words of the conflict. There is hardly ever a kind resolve because there are issues about a debate that have not been fully understood by the debaters involved.
23 They are trying to press upon each others garden. Each debater is making proclamations about how wrong the other debater is, instead of working together in order to understand how each aspect of the debate has valid points.
24 It is not about one debater being right and proving the other debater wrong, it is about accepting what is right from each perspective and knowing that there are aspects of both arguments that may be wrong.
1 This book is going to hopefully be considered a bible of sorts for those who might take interest in being an Omnist. It will be broken into several parts and cover a broad metaphorical scope of the make-up of a deeper consciousness of what a god or God is; and how one can perceive this through the eyes of an Omnist. It is a book of questionable fiction that is meant to wrap itself around a number of truths that we all share in our lives.
2 There is a journey that we all may be able to connect with in some aspect and many of us will be on a portion of this journey that we may be able to relate to with others in some way.
3 There will be a part about negatives that we experience and, for the most part, what one may feel that most Omnists would shy away from, but hold onto the notion of these aspects of life being essential lessons in what not to do.
4 It is not meant to put these negative ideas and concepts into motion, rather, it is meant more for the idea of understanding the importance of negative things in our lives to better understand the positive ideas that are generated from the mistakes of our ancestors.
5 And, there will be a part of positives. The simplest of things to many of us that we all share some joy, and that it is more important to hold onto these simple things in order for them to grow larger. Much like we now view the negatives in this world as the larger aspect, maybe someday, it will instead be these positives that will be the larger aspect of what rules us as a united people.
6 There is connectivity in all of if. This book is meant to be the first part of something larger and something that will continue to grow and be worked on and have no real beginning nor end. Omnism has started and been around long before the term Omnist was even coined back in the mid 1800’s by Philip J. Baily in his poem, ‘Festus’.
7 It will be a tearing apart of the negatives in our lives in order to put into motion how we see things and how we are told that there is a sound reason to hold onto only one hope, and still maintain that there is hope in all aspects of life.
8 Once this is done, there will hopefully be some kind of a sense of re-birth for us, so that we do understand how these negative ideas and concepts are important and that we opt for the direction of hope, instead of continuing our trek along the path of destruction. To be able to steer ourselves away from greed and allowing it to be the only concept to continue to rule the world. After changing directions hopefully we will all be able to move together towards an ideal of compassion for the lives of all living things and seeing the value of their individual souls/gardens/faiths or whatever you choose to name it.
9 Thus, working together at the idea of being greedy for the value of one another, instead of being greedy for the value of things that will not nourish our gardens.
1 Omnism is paradoxical, so the understanding of how to be an Omnist may be that of a perplexing nature; yet, it keeps its existence at the outskirts of our faiths.
2 Many of our tendencies bring us into direct correlations of all of the ways we are told and taught to live, rather than how to live. Indeed, there is a great deal of complexities built within us that we are yet aware of.
3 The inner conflict that we all have is a built in life-guide into understanding who it is that we are. Yet, this core principle, through all the things that we can take in and comprehend, eludes us, why? Let it be the conflict from within that we endure for ourselves, that we may one day be able to share with one another.
4 The manner in which this book is written is unlike that of a normal book. There are quirky little nuances within all the words that will hopefully be fun to find. Each word from beginning to end is meant to be a representation for each letter, word, verse, chapter/book and so on. Each little aspect is meant to be interpreted and applied to another’s way of reading. So that there will be something to discuss when it comes to opinions of certain areas, and also, fun little things to converse about.
5 With a heart full of hope, the intentions are that you enjoy this book as a little bathroom read, or perhaps take aspects of it as to how fun life truly is. Perhaps even give some introspection towards your own life, so that you may decide to move forward into a positive light for the generations down the road; to understand that the value of life is far more important than the value of the size of what a monthly statement says.
