What is the source, the source of your thoughts. Sit, quiet the mind as best as you can. Watch the thought arise. Follow it when it arises back to its source. Some have referred to the entry point of thought into this dimension as a weep hole. What is before that?
What is a thought? Is it energy, an idea, is it real? Is it nuetral? Can you have more than one at a time? Who does the thought arise to?
Is it your brain that has these thoughts?
What language and accent do these thoughts occur in?
” The Source of All” is the mind with which you think! Rhetoric, ideology and intellectual thinking will Not give one the experience of this.
If something can be perceived with the senses, then it is nothing. If it cannot be perceived, it is everything. There is nothing so blinding as perception! Why? Ego (the false self) made Perception thus sees everything as separate. One must look past the body to the light in which all is shared. In looking at our brothers we see them as separate and thus have opinions about them. Since we believe we are a body also, the opinions include us. What has effects through you also has effects on you.
We become what we think about, therefore, focus like a laser beam on the source of the thoughts. All will be revealed.
Just do it, there’s nothing to it. The most natural thing in the Omniverse cannot be complicated.
Definition of terms:
Freedom: the absence of concepts. Concepts or mental constructs in which we see the world. Paradigms or veils that filter reality. The lack of mental modification. The end of suffering.
Love: that which flows from within when there is a lack of mental constructs. The all encompassing. The natural essence of all life.
Forgiveness: that which gives be-fore. A decision made before an event apparently takes place. A state of mind. An awareness of All and Always in all ways, which leads to peace.
Lay down the troubled mind. Love is still Lord of All. Turn the world around, for it is backward and upside down.
Use the mind to overcome the mind. The mind is time. Time can be wasted as well as waste. As long as the mind believes in time, use it to reach a goal as high as learning can achieve. Freedom, Love and Forgiveness.
Do not seek to change the world. Seek to change your mind about the world and All the world changes with it. Hold the thought of freedom, love and forgiveness. The mind becomes what it holds within it.There are no individual personal problems. If one is willing to look at his problems he will see that he has none. What is trying to solve the problem, is the problem. The problem solver is actually the problem maker.
If I come to you and say “I have a problem”, you might ask “what is it”. At that point I must manifest a problem, that is, go into my mind and formulate a problem. Otherwise I have none.This is the prime goal of the ego. To keep you embedded in problem solving. The oldest trick in the proverbial book, look, look over here, but don’t look and find you are free.
On the other side of the coin. There will always be events and circumstances that one will attend to. Not making them into a problem is the trick. Once it is understood that life seems to be one damn thing after another, and that the “to do” list never gets shorter one may take pleasure in the events in whatever form they come in.
I wrote myself a little song I’ll share with myself.
Be Happy!Don’t think about it, plan it, engineer it, get a degree, aim at it, talk about it- just do it.
My friend Jeremy Narby living with the indigenous Indians of the Amazon, while walking from one village to the next commented to his Amazonian friend ” I think I’ll be needing a new axe handle soon, mine is old”. Upon hearing this the friend stepped off the path, wacked down a small tree containing the type of wood necessary, then quickly whittled a new axe handle.
My message to myself is: stop talking about enlightenment, get to it, do it, be it!
The Earthling is the only known animal that has thoughts about itself and then has opinions about those thoughts. It’s madness at its finest.
My life has been littered with problems, most of which never happened!
With the realization that both sides of the argument one is having with himself are unreal, comes the fact that there are no problems, therefore no solutions are necessary.The mirage is an illusion right along with the Desert itself. “Have no spear, have no fear”. Lay down the sword AND the shield, there is nothing to fight for nor defend. Become passersby!
Rise above the battleground and see the nothingness of the egos domain. Is it a sacrifice to give up nothing- I think not. Is it hard to give up pain, sorrow and death?
The egoic mind made self, labors under the false impression that it can possess objects and therefore lose them as well. It gets very upset at the thought of not getting or losing an object. Remember that an object is only your thought about its value or lack of. Therefore, what is the value of possessing a thought about an object except for imprisonment.
Do we believe we would starve to death without green paper strips and round metal disc? Do pills or fluid pushed through a needle into our veins sustain us. Are we merely a body?
Have no Fear!
Just Do It!
One last unrelated note to myself: remember that you are not moving through the images, the images are moving through your mind.
I AM responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I have achieved. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked.
A: The Universe is behind and for all. It is in joy in all brothers. We all see and come from the same place, therefore be FOR ALL brothers or you are against The Universe.
However you perceive your brother you will perceive yourself. In him you will find yourself or lose yourself.
To have give all to all. Protect everything you love by the act of giving it away. Notice it’s an act. Giving is proof of having. It brings home the realization that one has. Sharing increases an idea. Everything in the Cosmos is only your idea of it. What you share is determined by what you think you are. Share only Love and Peace for that is what you are. Therefore you increase and extend what creation made and not what you made.
Paint the sky with stars!
Q:What does that mean?
A: Isis, murder, battles, power struggles, politics, rape, incest, sickness and disease, suffering, pain and pleasure are only in the mind that thinks these things. Spot it ya got it! Perceive it – you believe it!
The mind that is cleared of these things is free. Do you want freedom of the mind or freedom of the body for both you cannot have.
Paint the world with love and forgiveness. The way back to the divine is through love. Create a vehicle called love and ride the great light rays back home.
Q: What else will you teach me great Sage?
A: The body is servant and not master. Tell the body to walk down this road or that and it obeys. The body merely tells the mind what it has asked for. It feels no pain, it is nuetral. It simply tells the mind what it has been asked to be told, this is hot, that cold. Only the mind gives it any meaning. The body will be servant or master depending on the purpose you give it. Is it the means or the end to you? Do you want freedom of the body or mind. One cannot serve two masters.
There is not now, nor has there ever been anything whatsoever to fear.
Q: I have time for some more wisdom great Sage.
A: Time- once the illusion of time is released all things flow. Actions become the end and not the means. The doing becomes the joy and not the result of the doing. What the children, parents, wife or friends “do” with “their” life is unimportant. It’s the content or essence, the joining together that becomes life.
Q: How can this be done?
As long as one see’s himself as a body he believes in possession. As a body he is finite and temporal. Therefore his life, his house, will be built on sand to be washed away in the storms of the final episode of this plane of existence.
Simply say I AM! I am not a body nor am I in a body. I Am the ever present I Am before time was.
Q: What else?
A: To have Peace, teach Peace to learn it. Everyone is a teacher whether he knows it or not. Teaching is demonstrating. Therefore teach peace to have peace and take it with you in demonstration.
This is my clarification of terms section. Even though I don’t use any of them.
PPPT-Your always in the perfect place at the perfect time. Your journey through time and space is not at random.
PIPO-Peace in, Peace out. We only get to keep in this life what we give away.
LIP – Let it pass. Thoughts are like hooks, bite on one and it will take you out to the wild sea of storms.
PSPS-pronounced puspus – Learn to push stop button, learn to push start button
Skinner and Tanner were two tough men seasoned by life and their particular trade. In countries where mineral rights were not so very well litigated, the big corporations sought to tap these sources. Skinner and Tanner built the roads that allowed removal of said Earth resources. I met them in Colorado where a mine had just accidentally been punctured allowing who knows how many gallons of mining chemicals to leak directly into a nearby river. Interestingly enough the EPA were on site when it happened. Skinner whom I met on a mountain trail began to tell me this story.
“We were in”, Skinner began in his slang, “the Amazon Rain Forest clearing a road for Globaltek. Now when we do this down there we don’t shoot a bunch of lines and make a fancy road. We just get it done and many a times just go several thousand yards at a time, depending on where the rivers are. Sometimes we even have to climb a tree to see where we are, based on where were headin’. We have about two hundred men on the job, some operate machinery, some scout ahead and what not. So on this one day were cruisin’ along doing our thing and I get a funny feeling that we’re headed the wrong way. So I climb up a tree and it takes about an hour and I’m way up there and I look and sure enough, were headed SE and should be headed SW. Now on the ground below me these guys are bustin’ ass and Bulldozing down trees and anything in the way. So I shout down and tell them we’re going the wrong way. It takes me a few attempts to get their attention. Again, I tell them “we are going the wrong way”. They look around at each other confused and finally shout back up “ yea, but were making progress”.
Are you making progress? Can progress be made? Which direction is Progress Street. More money, better relationships, nicer surroundings. Make the body more comfortable is the central theme of the Earthling. If we take the perspective that we born of other bodies, live a little while between birth and death and then die and rot among other bodies it truly is a bleak dead picture. I don’t want to see that movie.
Q: Why is that, you don’t like action movies?
A: No, I don’t like drama’s, seen one, seen ’em all. Now listen. Just by shifting perspective everything changes. We can live as though nothing is a miracle or everything is. It’s ok to change your mind. Nobody’s looking, no one need even know.
Once there was a politician. He walked out on stage to participate in a debate, took his place behind the podium and settled in. As the debate began he was asked what his position was on Alcohol. He considered the question for a moment and then began his remark. If you speak of the substance that impairs people so that they drive drunk, crash their cars into other cars and harm people. If you speak of alcohol that after ingested initiates men to beat their wives, if you speak of the element that ruins lives renderingdrunks to sleep in their vomit out of doors -then I am against it. However if we discuss the liquid of conversation, the elixir that puts a pep in the old mans step, the Champagne we celebrate weddings and birthdays with, the aged wine we enjoy with our dinner -then I am for it.
This is a world of duality, everything has its opposite here. What I have found and am inviting anyone interested to look at is the idea of rising above the duality to see the wholeness of it all. This place is but one little ant pile in the far reaches of one tiny galaxy.
I cannot tell you anything you do not want to hear nor anything you do not already know. With that in mind I invite you to look at this transformational idea.
What is contained in the outer reaches of our Universe? What is contained in the inner reaches of or one’s mind? There are the same. One of the most difficult accomplishments the earthling will undertake here in this plane is the realization of whole mind. This will make him very happy. Since it will make him very joyful, the attainment of joy from within is one aspect of of the coming to whole mind. In some spiritual practices one is trained to be capable of turning on his happiness in any situation(PSPS.) This is the training of the mind. Here is one idea that may act as a mechanism for this to unfold?
I have no neutral thoughts. Check it out for yourself. Look at each thought and one will see that this is so. Everything one thinks either has a inclination toward truth or falshity. Things that have a true charge create a likeness to themselves in the world we see. Things that have a false charge create their likeness. Everything we see in the world is a result of our thoughts. One could even go so far as to say we create our own world by our thoughts. Everything is only our thought about it!
The idea of purity is as ancient as the first spiritual practice by man. It is by purifying our thoughts that a entire new Omniverse may be perceived. this will make one very happy. If what we see is a direct reflection of our thinking then how would one undergo a change in what he sees. We bring all of our perceptions back inside of us analyze them, kick out the negatively false charged thoughts and keep the rest (for now.) There are no grey areas and no such thing as “idle thoughts”. As Jesus puts it “Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds.As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them.Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow.But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died.Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants.Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”That is a practice you may begin today.It is our thoughts alone that bring us pain. As Shakespeare put it “there is no good or bad only our thinking makes it so”. Is this a exercise in making our Self better. I say making a better Self is impossible. We can however return to zero everything.
Q: Your not right in the head. Zero everything?
A: If the world is insane and you are in the world then I will take that as a complement. Any attempt to create our own reality is what this place IS! The further out we go from zero is the further away from Nirvana. Building a false self concept is one way we have gone away. There is only one road to happiness. One either goes away from it or towards it. If we can get back to zero we can get back to being everything.
Q: Ok, what does zero everything mean?
It means coming back to whole mind, enlightenment which is total identification with the light, Buddha nature, One with the Tao that cannot be named…….In all of the Archetype’s of ancient past we see this theme of transcending the ego. And indeed in some of our modern day movies this is clear (see Perfect Place, Perfect Time article). However the culture has forgotten that these stories are meant for us and not merely entertainment or hero’s to be marveled and held up as idols. The mechanism for returning ourselves into the Universe has been lost. For example, Where in our culture does a boy become a man. When does a girl come to realize that she is the life bearer of this world. In one culture when a girl gets her first period she is taken into a structure to sit for several days tocontemplate her womanhood. Boys are taken to go out on the hunt with the men. Once an animal is taken they drink of it’s blood. Many, many different rituals are seen throughout time but not so much today.
Here is an interesting sacred ancient rite of passage. In New Guinie when the boys are coming into manhood, there exist a celebration. During which the tribe dances for days and days until they are exhausted, a common theme in many rituals. The boys who have not had sex as yet are dressed as dieties with all of the adornments of headgear and body paint. A Virgin girl is dresses this way as well. There exist a large lean to built of heavy timbers under which the ceremony takes place. Finally the Virgin girl is brought out and played on a alter. Each of the boys comes to her and has his first act of sex in public. As the last boy is experiencing the ectacy of the act, the timbers that hold up the structure are released and come crashing down on the couple. The timbers are then removed, the dead couple are then taken, cooked and eaten by the tribe. If we take the view that we have evolved past these ideas this is well understandable (ha), but what modern day technique might replace these.
Q: But ceremonies of manhood or womanhood would be going away from zero wouldn’t it?
A: Many in our culture never become men or women. If nothing changes then nothing changes. Some mechanism must be utilized. I should clarify that since we have entered this plane or dimension it seems as if we have to first develop a false concept of the self into adulthood and then we can transcend it. This is not for children. However the idea of having to transcend something is also false. For example, this world is an illusion, but since we do believe in time and space then it must be undone.
Q: Is it possible that we have reached a point when it is our thoughts alone that we must work with and transcended.
A: Very nice statement. Many teachings point to the idea that this is not ultimate reality or only relatively real. If this is true then one might say that it is all mind. If it is all mind then we must master the mind (then return it to the Omniverse) in order to reach the next phase if there is to be one. I think more accurately put, we must master our mind kingdoms and then surrender that kingdom of the mind back to reality in order to pass to the next level of simulation in our training. No words can accurately say it, they merely point.
We have all most likely read stories of our brothers and sisters who have entered traumatic life circumstances and emerged as different people. This is similar to what must happen on a larger scale in population and magnatude.
Q: Are we to simply wait for this to happen to us to wake up or can we put ourselves in a situation that will ignite the change.
A: What I am speaking toward is a total transformation of the total or one mind. And yes, there are many paths in order for one to allow a return back to zero everything. However at this point there seems to be a need for a traumatic world event to bring us together and transform us all.
Q: Whats in it for me?
A: A smack in the chop’s first off. Thats about all the boys get now in the Jewish tradition of a Barmitsva. This used to be a real transformational event. What’s in it for you? The end of world suffering for one thing, most likely after some severe suffering. A side effect will be a joy that arise’s from within, however the true effect will be a return to the Self. The Self is awaiting patiently our return so that the real journey may begin. World peace is not a lofty goal, it’s just a starting point. As soon as we stop throwing rocks at each other like children then we can begin.
Q: Sounds like of bunch of girly woo woo hassle
A: It might sound like that. Our identification with ideas such as Male and Female have conditioned us to live up to what we think were supposed to be. This is part of a prison house that keeps us locked within preconceived ideas. These are just earthly terms, there is no gender ultimately. This conditioning to the thinking of the world is very strong. One could even say that it has been passed forward from millions of years of conditioning in the genetic code of the DNA and RNA, in westerners anyway. Our culture for example says that Nature is everything that is not human. Culture is everything that is human. If we go down to the Amazon and talk with the indigenous people as ask what culture or nature is, they will look puzzled and say it’s all nature. To them evil and good are not entities that exist outside of manWe have concepts that are just of the imagination.
Simply put the first steps one can take is to completely and totally stop attacking and defending. Defending what? Our positions. The ego is like a little software system each os us has developed and laid upon a dying world. It is made up of concepts or better yet constructs that seem real. We constantly defend these imaginary illusions with ideas such as Male and Female and a plethora of others depending on culture etc. Get a lawn mower and mow them all down and there we stand brand new, now give your brand-new self away. Bad bing, bang boom.
Q: Bottom line – How do I return to zero everything?
A: I’ll tell you as soon as I waste some more of your illusive time.
Now I’ll tell you. Ok, you’re driving along in your car dee,dee,dee, now slam on the brakes. Wait, make sure no one is behind you. Now pull over to the side. Sit there until you can’t stand it anymore. Now we can start. Sit there twice as long as before. Now sling it into reverse and floor it. You girls who can’t back up very good, don’t worry you’ll get better. Keep on going. You might have to back up for a while, don’t worry you can’t run out of time. May have to back up into another lifetime. It’s just a theory, try it.
The Little Schism of Evol Notion – by Alex Williams
A Thought left it’s source in ancient past so long ago that the light it traveled in began it’s journey before the earth was formed. “I must hide before I am discovered for surely I have done a dastardly deed in leaving”, echoed off of nothing. Rocketing through the atmosphere piercing the membrane veil of the placenta and into darkness. A journey into darkness and fear, a detour for sure. What this thought hoped to find it brought with him here into this dimension. His name was Evol Notion.
Thus time was born. From the curiosity of what it might be to be alone and separate, a little privacy please. I need some space between cause and effect. I can create my own Nirvana and I Will. Better than the one before with my own rules and laws. Evol was a rebel of the first degree, not known before. My own Universe of my own making and I shall be it’s ruler and it shall do my bidding. It all awaited my vision of what could be in my private, alone and separate bubble of a realm.
First order of business would be to create my laws. For each and every thing there would be an opposite and all shades in-between. Multiplicity and fractionalization would rule. Four dimensions it would be, the here, the there, the in-between and time. Divide and conquer, attack and defend, love and hate, pleasure and pain and even life and death. I would people my realm with subjects able to build a concept of themselves out of thin air. This world would be built on the idea of a individual personality with a private mind. A sort of software package that each could lay upon a ever changing and shifting manifestation of matter.
Layers, I need to create layers, they are a good place to hide. Spirals and labyrinths will cover my tracks. I’ll call this the spiral galaxy and hide within a sort of fibonacci sequence. I would create mountains and boundary’s of time. Certainly I cannot be discovered in a maze of ignorance. Like the veil of the atmosphere this will be a bubble never to be completely seen in or out of.
Millenia after millennia past by and I could see that my creation was good. The kingdom of my mind was in full swing. Eons came and went, the tribes grew in knowledge and invention, roamed the surface of their making like little ants, I the ant-thropologist. But time wounds all heals and as it passed increasing viciousness dominated the plains, battles over territory and the imagined mind created objects were fought over. A breed of dominant peoples began to spread on the land like a cancer, destroying everything in it’s path. The fate of my hiding place was in question and I was growing bored with watching this vulgarity playing out. I began to long for my homeland and thus my planning of departure was necessarily undertaken. Should and could I return for certainly they were infuriated with me leaving. All of this I considered and determined to go and find the wormhole home.
I discovered that one believes he is part of his surroundings and so it was for me at this late date. I had made a sort of prison for myself, chained to the things I had created for I believed that they had value. This body I seemed to be stuffed down into was limited. My hope of creating my own Universe was turning to bitter ashes of despair. Slowly, I came to see that this world of my own creation held nothing that I wanted after all. My joy could not be found in the manifestation of matter nor in my design of individual-ness. It was just my imagination running away with me. I was looking for love in all the wrong places.
My mind turned to the escape from my chains and prison cell. The light beams that I had traveled in seemed only to go in one direction since my invention of time. The plans that I had designed to build my labyrinth when I arrived were misplaced and forgotten. Through all of this mishap I heard the distant melody of a voice of my history begin to beckon my return, which further promulgated my frantic search for the re-cognition of the way. Pieces and fragments of this jigsaw puzzle would rush by in a daze when I was not expecting them. Like a mad scientist I worked in my laboratory scribbling, pouring and planning my escape. Black holes, worm holes, nebulas and quasars, the fabric of this time must be bent. It seems that I would need a rocket with many fuel cells to break these chains and blow out the sides of the prison wall. If I had created this construct surely I could create ONE that pierced this veil of nothingness of my making.
One morning I awoke distraught for I realized that the struggle was of no use. The fire that I had started knew not of the spark that created it. I simply gave up. Looking out on the world I had created, things seemed to have evolved to a brighter wavelength on my channel. Some of the layers of the veil must have peeled off in the storm of the frantic searching in the lab. In my acceptance of the impossibility of leaving this plane I decided to take my own curriculum, the course I had set up for the inhabitants. Duality is a mother contrasted with my homeland of single Peace.
It turned out that the villagers were not exactly understanding the curriculum I had set up and a teacher was born. To have peace, teach peace to learn it, I pontificated to any that would listen. Questions such as, If you could go back what would you do differently or where do you see yourself in five years, they continually asked of me. It seemed the rules I had set up were blinding the peoples. Too many sense perceptions, too much thought, were actually blinding them, I decided. There is nothing so blinding as perception. Since they were my own creations I knew they were capable of seeing as I could, not with the body’s eyes but with the minds.
The peoples had this idea of peace sentimentally but would much rather battle over just about anything. Separate, divide and conquer was a war without end and I was doomed to watch it all for many eons. This world of duality, equal and opposite, has serious drawbacks, I thought. The idea that peace was the final goal was humorous as well, for peace was only the beginning, I lectured them.
I arrived at the conclusion that I could not leave until all of us could leave and all could not leave until we became One. To have, give all to all. This was funny to me for we were all always one. However, the realization would have to be born in the minds of the people. The dawning on the minds was my departure date.
If everybody’s wrong then no-one is right. And that certainly seemed like the case in my world. Since my world was made of ideas or mental constructs then we needed to build a construct such as a ladder to climb out of this double helix, each needed to go to the place of the skull and undergo his own crucifixion, dark night of the soul and resurrection, be dead and buried, light up all of His chakras, undergo a kundalini awakening and so forth and so on. It dawned on me that when this had taken place there would be no reason to leave and nowhere to go. A little heaven right here on earth.
If you are at a parade and get bored, you can fast forward it by walking in the opposite direction. I needed to speed up this parade. Full reverse I ordered, we must go in reverse, for this world is inside out and backward. My days began to be filled with the notion of how I was to lead the peoples up to this reverse wormhole and get them to jump in. To the Who-mans comfort was the guiding rule, lets all make our body’s comfortable until they get old, get sick and get die. If it wasn’t fighting over a scrap or arguing about who was going to do the dishes, it was “one day, this will all pay off”. And there was plenty of decoration going on. Let me see if I can attract another body with these shiny things I wear, but first, color my hair, enlarge my breast, buy a suit or high heels and bon-do my face. A sickened wall of flesh does need a lot of lipstick.
Within the construct of this popular topic of free will lay hidden the boundary’s. I mean I set it up so they would run from pain and toward pleasure, how free is that. They were only allowed this little slice of a corridor to roam in. Freedom is just another word for nothing left but booze. Therein lay my answer.
Suffering, there was no other way. The thing feared most would drive them to the wormhole. Wait, that was only part of it. Pleasure that was it, look over here, I would direct them. Look into this magnificent pool of crystal clear water, yes, look at your own beautiful reflection, thats right, lean over…… I just had to build that pool with a little downslope so they could fall gently over.
One day all of the babies prevented by the pill showed up. They were mad! I asked them this question; if you were traveling in a car at the speed of light and you turned on the headlights would anything happen. They gathered around in a huddle to discuss it then retorted, “only if it was on Labor Day”. Now these kids would not be in need of the wormhole mentioned. The understanding that the Cosmos IS in the mind was obvious, for babies always seek to join with what they see rather than keeping it apart from them. This is the difference between vision and sight. The idea of sight typically thought of as photons hitting the retina is reversed, vision goes out and envelopes everything.
What was all this about? Was I to free my peoples? If I was to free them then I would have to pre-suppose that they were -not free. This was my own rule of opposites. In truth they were not imprisoned but by their own choosing. Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes, the light has always been in them. Oz never did give nothin to the Tin Man, that he didn’t already have. No one need look for Loveville if thats the city he walks in. The only way one knows that he has something, is to give it away. Yes, the only thing we can keep in this life is what we give away. But no one was giving anything for free.
The question “What was all of this about” was the issue. The wormhole must lie not in more answers but less questions. No one but looks for the meaning of life but the experience of being alive. Everyone wants to change the world but no one thinks of changing himself. Seek not to change the world but to change my mind about the world and all of the world changes with it. It was never about leaving this place for where would I go. It was never about looking for the perfect conditions elsewhere but transforming the existing conditions into the destination. If life is a journey then this must be the destination. Build a vehicle called “Evol” and ride in that for a while. Is that short for evolution or love spelled backward. Could be one in the same.
Better not to begin, Once begun, better finish the Zen Master informed his student.
When sitting in meditation undertaking any spiritual path the trip is now underway. Why undergo the trip in the first place? Inevitably the even somewhat sensitive earthling Who-man will ask himself “what am I doing in hell” and the answer will come “get the hell out of here”.
He will hear of enlightenment, choose his method- become a Methodist, and away he goes. It’s beautiful and the highest goal that learning can achieve. Now- why is it better to finish once begun? The ego set in its constructs and beliefs giggles a little at the onset. It says “he thinks he can come out to the woods for a weekend, meditate and chuck me- ha”. Once the walker is on the path many exciting moments await. He’s on a wild bucking bronco now intent on throwing him. Persistence alone is omnipotent, consitency of purpose, focus like a laser beam. The untrained mind can accomplish NOTHING! You must finish or become like a computer with to many fragmented files unable to even boot up.
On this journey wild swings of mood will be experienced. Complete joy will arise and he will inform the world that he has done it, he has found enlightenment only to be closely followed by the deepest depression. They will be close together and the may expand to come to him in bigger wider waves. Over and over like the rinse cycle of the washing machine. He is growing smaller and smaller as each concept is brought up and released. Soon he will be no more.
In the periods of Great Depression the Peak Jumper may arise. What does this mean? Instead of sitting through those low periods there are things that can be done. I fly helicopters. When I hit strong headwinds I change altitude. Sometimes one can find a total wind shift at different levels. So, change up the activity.
1. Do something for someone. The ego cannot survive in the service to others.
2. Run, exercise, completely wear yourself out.
3. Paint, play guitar, listen to music
4. Accomplish one thing per day outside the normal realm.
5. Teach what you have learned. To learn enlightenment, teach it, even if only to yourself, write down your experience or record it on your phone.
Remember: after some great time of searching, practice and self inquiry most beings give up the practice, short term or permanently and this is when enlightenment takes place.
Some uncomfortableness is necessary and inevitable. If nothing changes then nothing changes. This is about your transfiguration, not about your observation of that change. Service work will take one a long way in the transfiguration. Go do be free.
The light is so far above the little concerns of the Who- man. It invites one to soar above time for just a little while. One can always return to the little contracted thought form energies. For now let’s fly….
However absurd the notion is that one can return to anything. Never get cemented into any concept or idea of yourself. No idea belief or dogma can encapsulate (not you) what you are. And this is very obvious, simple and basic, but happens consistently. We pigeon hole ourself with ” I am this or that” . We are not this or that but all of it and none. The Essence and not the form. And this has all been said.
One vision well said is that of realizing that the only reality is the one in front of you. Thought about it, the past or future, do not exist in this frame of reference. In fact the rest of the world does not exist in this view. Only what one sees in front of him is reality. It’s not to be intelectualized. When driving in a car, is the awareness that you are- moving, or are the images passing thru ones awareness.
The universe of the Divine is laid out before man, though he sees it not. Hidden in plain sight. The Open Secret. Don’t be fooled, there’s nothing to do and nowhere to go. Stick with me and I’ll teach you nothing. No rocket ships to build, no investigation into the matter of matter. It’s all just much to do about nothing. But it’s all happening within and arising out of nothing. But don’t give it any meaning, that’s the trap.
When a question arises, who would you choose to answer it. Your limited small inexperienced ego or the one mind that is before time was and will be after time was. And where is that mind? Is it out there, is the Buddha nature or Tao or Christ consciousness in the world- no. It is within your mind. And where are You then, but still in Nirvana. It within you and you within it. In this truth is the idea of gaining experience and learning is revealed as being false. If we are in Nirvana and have never left then learning is a skill that we have made. There are no choices to be made in Ultimate Reality. There is nothing to decide between and therefore experience and learning are unnecessary. In this idea is this hell transformed to paradise.
The fireflies are firing, the caterpillar butterfly ing, the floor is flooring, and here we all are. Satellites are orbiting, cell phones buzzing. Where we are or how we got here are insignificant questions. Now, can one look, can one become a passersby? Can you enter the Throne Room- yes. Can you reside there- yes, and you always have. It’s the journey into thought and thus fear that escapes the room from memory.
And anyone taking about it is just a fool for he who knows does not speak and he that speaks does not know, and yet here it is- speaking. Completely nuetral awaiting nothing to give it no meaning. It’s Wu Wei-Woo- doing, not doing. Wooooo- I thought I was doing something, it’s just happening. The stars are rotating over my head, just all on their own. The Big Dipper was there and now it’s gone. Look- there goes another UFO. Ancient Aliens? I AM one.
Innocence is strength and purity cannot be confined in a world built diametrically opposed to Nirvana. But hey- don’t tell anybody about this for they will contrive to crucify you. Toil and spin like a mad scientist searching for the open secret is the name of this plane. Never underestimate the insanity of it all. Only an ego could ask for more.
It’s deep but not deep in thought. Thinking is the separation!
