Şevki Yılmaz, a former Welfare Party (RP) deputy and presently a columnist for the pro-government Yeni Akit daily, said on Wednesday that whatever the “no” camp does, the “yes” side will emerge victorious in a referendum on April 16 that will switch Turkey to an executive presidency because a saying of the Prophet Muhammad indicates their victory.
Listening to Eckhart Tolle reminded me of this oft quoted verse of the Bible. The presumption in most of the minds that quote it is that there was darkness before God created the light. Even Eckhart falls into this trap even though as a spiritual teacher he should know that form and the formless cannot exist without each other. They are a dichotomy, two sides of the same coin. So, the question remains, what existed before darkness and light? – God.
