The great Italian philosopher
All Truths are easy to understand, indeed, once they are discovered – the secret is that you have to discover them first. Generally, we human beings are cowards of the unknown. Galileo (1564-1642) was an outstandingly intelligent way ahead of his own times.
It is not uncommon for such spiritually advanced persons to appear in different places in order to help in the elevation of human consciousness. His wisdom and philosophy was unequalled by any of the contemporaries of his time. Such is the nature of a Soul that is on the journey to the Ultimate.
Galileo had the transcendental and rare understanding that it is impossible to teach people anything due to the nature of their minds conditioned for thousands of lives and that the best effort is always to help a person discover the essence that lies dormant within themselves.
Most of his wisdom and enlightenment arose during some of his blissful and introspective moments for, he understood that mere philosophy was nothing to cling to as Enlightenment holds all the great wonders only discovered by the few who are courageous enough to taste the dew drops of the essence that arises from one’s innate divine Self.
This most wise man had much compassion and appreciation of the Enlightenment of Plato. It is when you compassionately embrace the wisdom of another, however scanty it might be in virtue, that you get to gain a spectacle of their auspicious visions. The secret is that a keen eye for discriminating the wheat from the chaff is that is of utmost importance. This is important for the simple reason that each person has his own unique path in this life, now and in the hereafter, and yet this is the beauty of life – that all persons are like the fingerprints don’t have semblance even in the case of identical twins.
This is the secret of the greatest men and women in history; that is how they leave footprints that sentient beings are left to recognize and identify with forever.
