Desteni is the message of Oneness and Equality. You may ask yourself: What is oneness and equality? What does that actually mean?
Oneness, from a literal perspective, is the understanding that we all come from the same substance: matter - the substance of the earth. Our bodies come from the earth, and return to the earth when we die. What we do to the substance of the earth affects everyone Here, as well as the generations to come. Common sense dictates that we should treat everything we can see, touch, and feel with the consideration that it is One with us: we consume the products of the earth, we turn its fruit into our flesh, our children’s bodies are composed of its elements, and we heal ourselves with its medicine.
Equality indicates that there is no part of the whole that is greater or lesser than another. Every element is equal to the next, the earth provides equally to all. In the dynamic natural cycle, everything has it’s place, and it is only by human intervention in the form of misplaced value, judgment and belief, that we have created an inequality on earth. However, we, as human beings, are also equal. No one of us is ‘more alive’ or has ‘more life’ than another, regardless of social class, education, age, gender or race. We are equal beings that are born innocent, and all deserve a chance to live a dignified life. It is only in the mind of man, in the realm of thought, that this can be considered ‘untrue’. Equality does not mean every man should receive the same quantity, but that each should receive what he/she requires in order to reach his or her utmost potential.
The main focus of Desteni’s research at this moment is the human mind: how it functions, why it functions the way it does and how it can be changed. When we say “mind”, we are referring to that part of you that is thinking and feeling. Your mind is that part of you that tells you that you’re not good enough, that you are right and everyone else is wrong; that it’s not your fault; that uses thoughts to create emotional experiences like anger that may lead you to say or do something you end up regretting.
We have created much of what exists in the world now. Our actions over generations have cumulatively influenced every part and piece of life on Earth. Our creations as our societies, economies, systems and structures are all reflections of who we are and who we have allowed ourselves to be. What does this mean? We have, to a large extent, not been living the potential of who we are, but rather the designs, programming, patterns, personality systems, etc that have been imprinted onto us via DNA, life experiences and our environments. Essentially we are simultaneously the products of our environment and the creators thereof. We have, through our tacit acceptance, become that which was imprinted onto us. Because of this, who we are is not simply made up of “us”, but also of emotions, feelings, judgements and other inner experiences that often distort our perceptions of ourselves, other people and the world as a whole.
Desteni offers a solution in the form of the tools capable of deconstructing the current values, judgments and beliefs created in the minds of humanity. These tools include the means to recreate ourselves within a consideration and understanding of the oneness and equality of Life as defined above. This is an individual, personal, process which epitomizes the understanding that to value SELF as equal to and one with all that is here, is to also learn to value others and all of Life as well. When this value is not only an idea, but an actual form of living practise, the product of the one living this principle is a product that, when lived by many, brings about the change required to heal the current problems of the earth.
Through exploring the content of this website, you will discover how this message is the principle that guides the Universe, and therefore each living being. With the message of Desteni we can understand how humanity is in fact responsible for what is Here as creation; Creation of the universe and of Life on Earth. Take this journey with us, using the tools provided, to rebirth Ourselves as One and Equal so that we can change this world into a place that is Best For All Life.
