Life is a mystery, that means it cannot be solved. And when all efforts to solve it prove futile, the mystery dawns upon you. The doors are open and you are invited. As a knower no one enters the divine. As a child, ignorant, not knowing at all, the mystery embraces you. With a knowing mind you are clever, not innocent. Innocense is the door.
I’m going to say the same thing in my own way; if you go on a Spritual search which is self evident as you read this, you will come to know that you can’t know. In this realization everything becomes possible, the whole world is opened. No longer will you tell it what it is but only ask it what it is- this is mysticism. This will make you Happy!
In this respect sometimes I point at deconstruction or undoing, the opposite of building a better self. A return to innocence. When Jesus said one must become like the little children to enter Heaven, this is what he spoke of.
The Return Trip
There seem to be many different pathways to God, freedom, enlightenment. Many different blocks on the return trip that must be overcome.
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
– Jim Morrison
Everyone points to a different way. It can get confusing.
Let’s look at the idea that all illusions are one. Fear/death/time/guilt etc. Let’s say that there is no hierarchy of illusions. One illusion is all illusions.This would include All mental constructs we have built. Leading Scientist attempt to explain the Cosmos with one elegant equation. This one equation in this idea of no heirarchy would be what – zero. The Cosmos seems to have come out of nowhere – zero. We ask what was before the Big Bang. We humans think of everything in terms of what we can sense. We say what is real is what we see, hear and feel. To us zero is meaningless and it would be if all that existed in true reality (Nirvana/Heaven) were zero.
So now we are into other dimensions that we are unaware of. This is very reasonable being that our spectrum of hearing and sight are only a fraction of what exist. We can measure a much broader spectrum of light, sound with instruments we have constructed.
Now we move into science. Tell us please Science world, what have you discovered. Dark energy, quarks, Higgs-Bozon, black holes. Is it true that we cannot locate matter, or have I watched too many YouTube videos. As far as I know every time they go to look at a very small piece of matter it appears in several places at once. These are its potential locations. Is it true that the observer and the observed cannot remain seperate. If this is true then is it logical that everything is One.
I want to call this One Mind. With this idea we might say that everything in the Cosmos is “one” appearing as many. All points are connected.
This next piece will be hard for me to share. Would you believe that we actually think something before we see it. That’s hard to swallow.
Projection makes perception.
This is not “me” saying this; many spiritual text and teachers point this out. As we have come to see, spirituality over the ages has been well ahead of Science on many topics.
If projection makes perception then just what in Heavens name are we perceiving here and now. ” Here and now” that’s an important statement. Why? Because as the Course states, we only see the past. Wow, it’s a lot to take in, or put out. Holy spitballs, now what.
We only see a small spectrum of the dimensions that we do see
Matter cannot be located
The observer and the observed cannot remain seperate
Projection makes perception
It appears to me that we are dealing only with mind- One mind.
It gets even freakier. I was watching ” What the bleep do we know ” for the tenth time, listening to the one Scientist stating that consciousness is so powerful that in combination with the incredible energy within a vacume it could easily produce the Big Bang Boom.
I know, sounds like the craziest Science fiction I could imagine reading. Let’s keep going.
In my own limited words The Course says that; we were in Heaven and wondered what it would be like to go off and play by ourselves. We had a thought in which the Son of God remembered not to laugh. This was our departure from innocence. It goes on to say that once this mistake was realized that we ran and hid in guilt and shame. We then created the Biggy Boom. This Cosmos was made as a defense against God. Combining this idea together with the power of Consciousness to create the Universe is facinating.
I was looking at the Fibanachi Sequence the other day. It is said that everything constructed in the cosmos can be related to its formula. If one looks at it and it’s mathematical equations it can be seen as a manufactured hiding place within its circles. The Gallaxies resemble this as well. I have often thought of this world as a maze within a maze. Can you sense this or see the relationship of the Fibanachi to the Cosmos to a hiding place.
What does all this mean? What do we do with it. What do I do with it, assuming any of it were true.
Become Passersby. – Jesus
Empty you mind of everything you think you know and come to God with wholly (Holy) empty open arms.
This would also be a return to innocence would it not. A return to a childlike state of mind.
Now hold the phone here. What if you’re wrong. What if this is my one shot on Earth to live and do my thing. Yes, it’s can be very fearful. The idea of stopping with the admission that you were wrong about everything. Not only stopping but throwing it in reverse and then stepping on the gas.
I can say this much; I keep looking around for an alternative. Looking for Happy People in which I can emulate. I can’t find any. Sure, I see people in happy states but I keep watching and the idol falls apart. And this is so in my own case. I go thru the narrow corridor of what I perceive to be pleasure and pain, running toward one and avoiding the other. This is by no definition – Freedom. Where is the alternative? Show me one. Where is truth here. Tell me about it!
I was told ever since I was young and watching people die, I would ask; where do they go, what happens. I was told oh you can’t know that, they go to Heaven. Well where is that I asked. It’s where everything is perfect- the said. Well let’s all kill ourselves then. They said; no, then they won’t let you in. I’m kidding around but just a little but it is funny.
I always circle around back to just, be here now. Become passersby. It really is a facinating thought system. This whole idea of freeing the mind. I suppose one would first have to buy into the idea that the mind is imprisoned.
Just put on some music and walk thru the Garden. What else is One to do? See you on the happy trails,
