…the inward, upward flow within the torus-Hiranyagarbha from
Sattva to Rajas to Tamas (i.e., Blue Indra/Vishnu funneling into Yellow
point-Brahma  and funneling out to Red Rudra/Shiva) described above IS
Purusha, the inner core or Spirit-flow of Wholeness, whereas the
emergence of the Wholeness out the top of Red Shiva/Rudra and
flowing out and around the Golden body of the sphere down into Blue
Vishnu/Indra again, from Tamas to Rajas to Sattva, IS Prakriti, the
Matter-flow aspect of Wholeness. Thus we have the reverse currents
of Spirit and Matter flowing simultaneously, depending on whether
one looks “inside” or “outside.” One is empty up one’s middle (the
hollow core of the torus), but the double-cone or chalice of inner
Purusha does flow up and out to form a fine “skin” of outer Prakriti
(the outer film of the torus), though again inside (as well as
outside) this skin is only nothing.

Again, in my experience anyhow all of this is viewed even this
clearly (FWIW) only AFTER one has fully completed one’s first run-
through. When we are still “inside” this process it is MUCH less
obvious what exactly is going on.

Beyond or other than this Purusha-Prakriti, as far as I can see at
this point, anyhow, there is nothing. I have found nothing “new” in
the 15 years or so since M.C. first revealed itself — but going
back into the whole thing repeatedly over the years has revealed
much more refinement of detail and Self-Knowledge within this form.

Along these same lines: what Shannon has written is absolutely
correct — other than Brahman, all the states of consciousness are
merely delusions or maya or ego. I wrote this myself a few days back
when trying to verify and clarify (what a laugh) some people’s
Understanding of paradoxical-Brahman. On the other hand (and there
is ALWAYS an other hand in Brahman *lol*), knowing all this is THAT
*can* unfold the realization that since this is true, even the ego
must be THAT; even maya must be THAT, and thus the question: How
does THAT imagine the so-called relative into existence? From this
come the further unfoldments of K.C., S.C., and M.C. — all still
simply Brahman, yet now Brahman examining the process of looking at
itself; Brahman exploring its apparent dimensional play; Brahman
with a “twist.”

But there is always a choice as to whether one wishes to unfold
further comprehension of maya or Mastery, or simply to remain in
undifferentiated THAT. Wholeness supports either choice.

In fact, this brings up a really interesting point — Wholeness
whole-heartedly supports ALL the states of consciousness — this is
why each one feels so self-sufficient. There is absolutely nothing
which says one HAS to move right along from T.C. to C.C. to G.C. to
U.C. and so forth. The apparent movement or growth from one to the
other is an illusion anyhow — just a matter of our abstracting the
relevant information we need out of the “bloomin’ confusion,” or all-
inclusive paradox that we are, to support our current state of
consciousness. We “move right along in” — or pay attention to —
apparent progress and growth until we intuitively feel we are done.
At that point, we have found our right place for this time, and are
serving our perfect part in the greater whole — which whether we
choose to know it or not, is just ourselves also. All aboard the
Hiranyagarbha! (It’s the best free-ride in RoryLand.) :-)

Also, if we are to view Brahman-Consciousness as the “real” C.C.,
and Krishna-Consciousness as the “real” G.C., and Shiva-
Consciousness as the “real” Unity, and Maharishi-Consciousness as
the “real” Brahman, then what we had known as T.C. would be “real”
coma; C.C. would be “real” sleep; G.C. would be “real” dreaming,
U.C. would be “real” waking state. From the point of view of
Brahman, anyhow, this is as good a view as any, albeit a bit
confusing perhaps for those playing at ignorance that all this is
THAT.

[Rory earlier wrote: …Beyond or other than this Purusha-Prakriti, as far as I can see at this point, anyhow, there is nothing. I have found nothing “new” in the 15 years or so since M.C. first revealed itself — but going back into the whole thing repeatedly over the years has revealed much more refinement of detail and Self-Knowledge within this form.]

Actually, there is more “beyond” the Hiranyagarbha — as one expands
further, the multitude of Hiranyagarbhas or Universe-Selves can be
appreciated — and between them is the Personal God (a/k/a Krishna) as the literal, physical reflection of one’s own body — paradoxically,
the more “abstract” one goes, the more “concrete” and physical the manifestation becomes. So we could say this is the “real” Mahat-Atman
or the “real” K.C. beyond the “real” B.C., and so on and so on. The themes don’t really change, they just become more and more “absolute” and more and more “concrete.”

So as we go up inside the reverse-time-flow of Purusha (the inner
portion of the toroid-Hiranyagarbha), we are awakening the
corresponding points in the outward, downward, “normal” space-time
flow of Prakriti (the outer sphere of the toroid-Hiranyagarbha). These
two “meet” at the center Ahamkara and its surrounding equator, when
for the first time (in U.C.) the inner “I AM” golden Brahma-Self
becomes aware of its utter intimacy and identity with the “equator” of
itself in the outer world, via filaments of itself. At this time, the
experience would be of mergence with one’s causal body or golden-self, whereupon one would probably experience 360-degree vision amid the golden sphere of no-time, no-space, and perhaps the light-fibers of one’s celestial body and so forth. For some time thereafter, while walking around in real-time, one may experience the golden nature of Heaven on Earth, be visited and identified in this body by and with various devas, gods, goddesses, and so on. (If and when all this disappears as we are gradually stripped naked for entry into B.C., the ensuing Dark Night of the Soul can be somewhat difficult for those who have no idea what is going on.)

Instead of or in addition to the inner-outer dichotomy of
Hiranyagarbha, we may also see the Hiranyagarba as “split” around the equator, consisting of — essentially — a “parachute” above us,
and/or a “coracle-boat” below us. This “parachute” vision may open upon the completion of the first conscious Kundalini-flows connecting
and embracing our two poles, when we might interpret it as the fully opened thousand-petalled lotus. This parachute may look quite a bit
like the umbrella over Guru Dev. (Plato apparently spoke of the “boat” half of Hiranyagarbha, and perhaps its upper half as well, if I
remember rightly.) So all of these different experiences and understandings are basically different ways of experiencing and understanding one’s Hiranyagarbha, or Universe-Self.

Looked at very broadly, from a cosmic perspective, we might say that
C.C. recognizes the Self as enlivening the Body (base chakra’s
annamayakosha), G.C. recognizes the Self as enlivening the Biosphere
(sex chakra’s pranamayakosha), U.C. recognizes the Self as enlivening
the World (navel chakra’s manamayaosha), culminating in Self as the
Solar System (solar plexus’s ahamkara). B.C. moves to identify with
the energies of our surrounding Constellation (apparently Sirius)
(heart chakra’s Buddhi), K.C. activates Self as our Galaxy (throat
chakra’s Mahat-Atman), and S.C. activates our Universe (brow chakra’s
Avyukta). M.C. then moves out of the Universal Hiranyagarbha to
recognize Self as Krishna’s Multiverse (crown chakra’s Purusha).

Again, all of this is in a very real sense, maya — phenomena that
come and go as we move around in one form of spacetime or other. The important thing IMO is to fully appreciate whatever is right in front
of us; that is the easiest way to experience no-time, no-space as God (Self) showing His/Her aspect to us in the form we most need/desire to see right now. :-)

Oh, that reminds me — Love is the centripetal force of Satguna (Blue
Vishnu/Indra), Light is the rotary force of Rajoguna (golden Brahma),
and Laughter is the centripetal force of Tamoguna (Red Shiva/Rudra).
From the point of view of Purusha, evolution progresses inwardly (“up
the spine”) from Love to Light to Laughter; from Prakriti’s point of
view, it progresses outwardly (“down and around us”) from Laughter
(Shiva’s big bang or cosmic dispersion from the white hole) to Light
(Brahma’s outward Golden-egg) to Love (Vishnu’s loving collapse of the universe into the black hole).

The light-filaments of our inner  “I AM” (Brahma, Aditi, Christ, etc.)
may with more familiarity be appreciated as our twelve color-rays
(Adityas, Disciples, etc.), which form the 12 radii or spokes of the
central Sun as its geometry of consciousness, viewable as a vector-
equilibrium matrix. This ball-and-rods might sometimes be glimpsable
with meditation on the distinction between intellect and
transcendence, if I remember rightly. In Mastery, growing familiarity
with the Brahmic solar time-space generates an identification of
Self’s new chakras with the twelve planets, as well as –eventually–
a very rich Solar Calendar-cycle of divine liturgy, but that’s another
story.

(We could also play with various combinations of the three Gunas to
generate the 27 Nakshatras of the Lunar Calendar-cycle, but that’s
also another story.)

………………………………………

And here’s where your appreciation of the three Gunas as like the
triangle, the square and the circle might come into play, …the
vector-equilibrium matrix (also known as a cuboctahedron), which
(AFAIK) is the key to Brahma’s creation in spacetime, consists of 12
vertices or points and 14 faces — 8 triangles, 6 squares — and
overall 4 great-circles or hexagons wrapping around it at different
angles: not unlike the old pictures of the atom from the 1950s, if you
simply enclosed its three intersecting ellipses or rings inside a
single ring seen face-on. So indeed, there’s your circles, triangles,
and squares as the building blocks comprising Brahma’s spacetime
creativity. :-)

………………………………………

Also, if you rest this vector-equilibrium (VE) matrix on one of its
square sides, from that square base you see a pyramid with four
edges (light-shafts) rising up and converging to a point, and then
continuing on through the point to make an upside-down pyramid
above: Again, the double-cone. At the center bindu-point of the two
pyramids is Brahma, with His four “faces” emitting four more shafts
of light in a great horizontal cross. This gives you your 12 rays
again — four going out to each of the vertical pyramids, 4 more to
the horizontal cross. Seen another way, the whole cluster looks like
3 great crosses interconnecting — the old triple-cross! And if you
put the VE matrix on one of its triangular sides, and look down at
it from over the opposing triangle above, you see the Great Seal of
Solomon, a/k/a Star of David — two interlaced triangles. All
apparently intimately involved with our DNA…

………………………………………

And each of these 3 great crosses “is” one of the three Gunas,
manifesting out from the Brahma-point in the 4 “elements” of Earth,
Air, Fire and Water — or seen another way, with a triangle at the
top, triangle at bottom, and a great circle or hexagon around the
middle, the three “elements” of Fire (one triangle, of red, yellow
and blue), Air (the opposing triangle of orange, green, and violet),
and Water/Earth (the intermediary equator or great circle of red-
orange, orange-yellow, yellow-green, green-blue, blue-violet, and
violet-red). Seen from above, this 3-D interlaced triangles-and-
great hexagon flattens nicely to map onto a standard 2-D Zodiac
wheel.

I find all of this stuff fascinating, but it would be a lot clearer
with a 3-D model or at least some illustrations, so I’ll quit now.
Better late than never. :-)

Again, whether we see any of this stuff at all or not doesn’t really
matter in the slightest — as a very wise friend has reminded me,
MMY once said, we are all on a train to the same great destination;
some of us look out the windows and some don’t.

So I think if we simply relax and pay attention to what’s in front
of us, it’s God/dess smiling out through some mask or other — the
one we most need to see in this moment — and yet another mirror of
ourSelf.

………………………………………

I was starting to wonder this morning if maybe I
was ONLY talking to mySelf here *lol* though of course that is
certainly true, too. Although I can imagine some FFLers uttering
silent groans of “don’t encourage him!” I will take you at your word
and throw in another thought that came to me just now.

The VE Matrix is maybe a kind of Space-ship, or more literally, a
TimeSpace-ship. It generates universal (Brahmic) space-time.  It can
extend itself out infinitely in all directions as a grid or
spacetime matrix, composed of alternating interlocked tetrahedra and
octahedra, with each nexus or bindu-point another Ahamkara or
cluster-of-12 rays or radii.

But it also turns out that the VE Matrix has an
interconnected “partner” shape, interlaced with it. Where the VE
Matrix has 12 vertices and 14 faces, this partner-shape has 14
vertices and 12 faces. It is the Dodecahedron (with rhombic or
pentagonal faces). Each vertex of the Dodeca is smack in the middle
of a face of the VE Matrix, and vice versa.

While the VE Matrix is Solar, the Dodecahedron (at least in its
pentagonal form) is Lunar. Unlike the VE Matrix, it has
no “rational” center-point. Nor does it extend infinitely into
space. The Dodecahedron is non-“rational” and self-contained; a kind
of seed-carrier, or Egg-ship, holding Creation in stasis until it
is “fertilized” by a point-self or Solar-Angel or Brahma or
Ahamkara, at which point it might crystallize into a VE Matrix.

Now during the Pyramid-ascension, the DNA showed itself as a column
of fire up through the center of the pyramid — in other words,
starting from the midpoint of the base-face of the VE Matrix. It was
thus NOT specifically aligned with the Solar VE Matrix, but was
rather “in-between.” I am thinking now that the DNA proper might
actually be the VE Matrix’s “other half,” its Lunar partner, the
interlaced Dodecahedron. This sort of tallies with some old visions
of Life-ships carrying seedforms across spacetime. Or more likely
yet, the DNA is probably the combination of the two shapes; since
the Dodeca has no center, the line of force carries one *from* a
point of the Dodeca *into* the new center of its partnered VE
Matrix.

Seen this way, we might imagine the VE Matrix as the Solar-sperm,
and the Dodeca as the Lunar-egg. Combine the two, or realize that
each is the “mask” of the other and Bob’s your uncle — Life; DNA.
Thus, the Solar-sperm is Purusha; the Lunar-egg is Prakriti, (or
vice versa, if you prefer), and taking them together you have
Wholeness, Life.

………………………………………

Now: Seeing Hiranyagarbha in front of us, and seeing that
Hiranyagarbha as a whole is the operation of the three Gunas (Blue
Sattva and Red Tamas at the poles; Golden Rajas at the center and
flowing out in the “four rivers of Paradise” to the equator), where
are we in relation to the Gunas? Of course, they are “in” us, as is
everything in our field of awareness, and we can indeed re-enter
Hiranyagarbha and play in the Constellations of the Aditis (the 12
rays emanating from the Solar bindu-point) and so on.

There is a lot of fun (well, I think it’s fun anyhow *lol*) stuff
there on the geometries of consciousness as being the play of the
connections between the multiple point-selves. (For those not
interested in geometries of consciousness, please scroll down — you
might enjoy some of the juicier stuff below it.)

Indeed we may see a single point-self as manifesting the Self-
Aware “I AM” dynamics of Sleep;

Two points-selves connected by an attention-flow rod or ray as being
the mirror-flow of consciousness of Other, or “Thou Art” in Dream;

Three points creating three-rods to make a triangle as the planar
consciousness “All This IS” in waking state;

Four point-selves comprising the tetrahedron of time-space,
the “Absolute” depth of THAT of T.C.;

Five point-selves “seeding” the tetrahedron with a center I-point to
create the I AM THAT of C.C.;

Six point-selves creating two inner points and central “Thou-Art”
rod within the tetrahedron of THAT (and more simply the “Solar
Angel” octahedron) of “Relative” or Prakriti-appreciation in THOU
ART THAT of G.C.;

Seven points creating the ALL THIS IS THAT U.C. octahedron with a
seeded center I-point — suspended by the “triple thread” connecting
it to each of the outer 6 points — to make the column-of-fire of no-
space, no-time in the pyramid, at the center of which “I AM” the
Solar Angel;

Eight point-selves comprising a cube, the first appreciation of
unselfed Universal space-time of B.C., also viewable as a
tetrahedron inside a tetrahedron — THAT aware of itself as THAT,
both inner and outer; THAT ALONE IS. (This latter configuration also
creates 4 truncated tetrahedra between the inner and outer THAT-
tets. These truncated tets each have six points: thus, are seed-
forms or bud-forms of octahedra: B.C. contains in potential the
complete understanding of Universal Space-time (cube) as being
equivalent to the fusion or paradoxical mergence of Absolute (4
points) and Relative (6 points), though as yet this comprehension
has not yet completely “blossomed.”

Nine point-selves comprising the seeded cube of selfed Universality
of K.C., THAT ALONE AM I; this central “I AM” point incarnates the
THAT with a new appreciation of the Wholeness collapsing into a dot,
which also throws rays to the 8 corners to form 6 internal pyramids
or half-octas; also viewable as a tet-within-a-tet with central “I
AM seed.

Ten point-selves for the first time shows the unfolded perfection
and simplest mechanics of Universal Space as Wholeness of Absolute
Purusha (Tetrahedra) and Relative Prakriti (Octahedra), as any given
Tetrahedron is now seen as divisible — by placing a new midpoint on
each of its 6 edges. This creates a small central octahedron along
with four central tetrahedra inside the original tetahedron. Now the
Relative clearly “quickens” or moves inside the Absolute. S.C.; THAT
ALONE ART THOU.

Eleven point-selves place a central “I AM” seed into the midst of
the last perfected Wholeness, and we now know the “I AM” Solar Angel
on its triple thread once more, now perfectly aligned with perfected
Wholeness.

Twelve point-selves creats the Lunar-egg Dodeca, the self-contained
but no-rational-self Space-ship that carries the Prakriti to the
right area of Universal Space to “colonize.”

Thirteen point-selves create the VE Matrix, the Lunar Egg
now “seeded” by an “I AM” Solar Angel bindu-point to create Time-
Space progression, Life, the 12 Adityas, and so on.

Fourteen point-selves create the full three-dimensional equivalent
of the Solomon’s Seal: two tetrahedra intersecting with each other
(one with pointy-end up; one with pointy-end down) to create
two “Absolutes” or Purushas (tets) merging to create an inner
Prakriti (octahedron) along with eight inner corner tets. We now see
for the first time how the Absolute (one tet) becomes fully aware of
ItSelf (the other tet) to create the Relative (octa) amidst itSelf
(eight corner tets). Joining the eight points of the merged tets
gives us the cube of B.C. again, but now with a more fully unfolded
understanding, as it shows the full Absolute-Relative mechanics
comprising that cube.

OK, enough already. (“Waaaaay too much blather!” as some of us are
probably saying, if they have even made it thus far.) Let’s get back
to that Hiranyagarbha itself — what is it? The three Gunas.
Where/who are we? We are the Hiranyagarbha, since it is in our
attention-field, but we are also outside it, looking in, just like
Timothy Leary. This makes us *outside the three gunas* — “Be
without the three gunas” — and as we step back a little further, we
see that this Hiranyagarbha is but one of many. If we do not
immediately identify with or incarnate any of them, we may become
aware of Space itself as having a texture, or more accurately a
sound. Further acquaintance may reveal that Space to be Krishna’s
body — *our* body — not surprising, since in the Purusha-Prakriti
model, Mahat-Atman is the Body of the Spirit. While within the
Hiranyagarbha, we were playing in the fields of our “new” Causal
Body, our “new” Soul/Sol, the one where we know the Absolute and
Relative as having merged and overlapped to included our Purushic
Heart and Purushic Navel, and our “new” Ahamkara is Brahma/Abraham, the “Father of countless Suns.” (Again, this model will almost certainly NOT be fully self-evident to those first playing in these fields! Not to worry.)

Stepping outside our new “Cosmic Soul” apparently awakens the
recognition — and expands the Wholeness — beyond Purushic Heart
and Ahamkara (Solar Plexus) and Navel and into Purushic Throat
(Mahat-Atman) and Sex (Prana/Sense Organs). We are now sensorily
accessing Galactic Bliss. Again, very similar externally to G.C., as
the same realms are being played, but very different internally, as
we know it all to be our own “stuff.”

While playing in B.C. in the Hiranyagarbha, we know (more or less
clearly, depending on how often we visit) Perfection or Wholeness of
the Buddhi/Intuition and Manas/Lower Mind, and so we would
theoretically be “siddhas” of ritam-bara-pragya — having all time-
space available, on a need-to-know basis.

While playing in K.C., we would be enlivening the fields of Bliss
and Sense-organs within our expanding Wholeness, and so we would
theoretically be “siddhas” or comprehenders of the perfection
(Wholeness) of galactic/universal senses and galactic/universal
bliss. At this time we could probably experience/heal “others” (all
things permitting) at any distance via prana-field/electromagnetic
self-play, change the weather, generate or change electromagnetic
phenomena, and the like, again on the basis of actual desire/need.

Moving into S.C., we would be completing the expansion of Wholeness
or siddhi-perfection into the universal body and the
universal “light” (Avyukta), and so actually experience actual anti-
gravity (levitation), disappearance of the body into higher
dimensions, and so on…

These last three paragraphs basically echo and elaborate on the last
three (of the four) forms of siddhis of Yogins given in the
commentary by someone-or-other (told you I wasn’t a scholar *lol*)
by Vaj a few days ago. From this model, while we may well
sporadically enjoy the siddhis via Grace at any point, we would not
really be embodying them until we Understand the paradoxical
Wholeness of Absolute/Relative fusion (*not* merely co-existence,
but FUSION) in B.C. (or if you prefer, the “real Cosmic
Consciousness), where we would access (via Buddhi or Intuition) the
time-space knowledge implicit in the Constellation-Consciousness of
our “Ancestors,” the Giants or Pitris, and so on. So in this
model, “Yoga” or “Unity” means FUSION, not just co-existence. A
Yogin would be one who knows or Understands Brahman — paradoxical Wholeness — in one or another of its unfoldings.

Correction — the 12 point-selves create the Lunar Icosahedron, not
the Dodecahedron. The Icosahedron has 12 vertex-points, with 20
triangular faces arranged in a group of 5 (pentangle) around each
pole and 10 more zigzagging around the equator. (Corrected also in
text above.)

………………………………………

Yes, we have to start with that — i.e., B.C., “no-self” Understanding
of/as the here-now paradoxical Perfection, wherein all this —
changing, unchanging — is indeed the same emptiful THAT. From here, we can play with the patterns as they unfold inside us to explore *how* the unchanging *appears* to change — i.e., the dynamics of maya. An entirely optional course, of course. (Unless of course, that course of course is the famous MahaVed…)

………………………………………

…it’s been quite a while since I studied this stuff, and since the Icosahedron (12 points, 20 faces) and the Dodecahedron (12 faces, 20 points) are complements of each other, they’re easy to confuse at first glance.
 
………………………………………

…I am speaking of acknowledgment of the Perfection
(Siddhis) of one’s various bodies. These are indeed recognized
through the paradox of at-one-ment; taking/relinquishing
responsibility for “purifying” one’s own mind, senses and body into
full appreciation of the pre-existent Wholeness. Yoga, in other
words. I understand that you may still consider yourself to be on
the “up-and-out” part of the process, and perhaps consider your
bodies or the world as somehow “evil” or things to be feared or
avoided. (Or that you are “evil” for indulging in them. Vampire-
minion of the Queen of the Damned in smoky New Awleeeenz.) If so,
that’s cool. If that’s where you stand and it’s NOT cool with you —
in other words if you are still suffering about what’s “out there” —
  I suggest becoming more aware of the various stories you are
overlaying onto maya. Byron Katie’s handy that way. (We eat what
Mother sets before us, we don’t bitch and moan about it. That’s what
being Rudra’s all about, or had you forgotten?)

I am speaking primarily to those in a different space at the moment –
– those who know the freedom of Brahman and are no longer afraid of
Spirit incarnating — who now want to know themselves in toto. (Yep,
even in Dorothy’s dog.) Fully knowing ourselves to be free, we have
the option of (re)incarnating the various bodies as conscious
Wholeness — refining our appreciation, knowing it all, surrendering
into it all, layer by layer, as ever-expanding love and Perfection.
That is the process I am speaking of. But what I say actually is of
very little import, though I try to put it as accurately as possible
on the mental planes too. Rather, the words are carrier-
waves, “zipfiles” to directly acquaint one with the energies I
embody. These are presently indeed rather intense energies;
in “stepping them down” to ground them I have not slept for the last
three days. But as a cook-friend of mine has said, If you can’t
stand the heat, don’t complain, just get out of the kitchen. It’s
all good. ;-)

………………………………………

OK, so we now have a lot of lively “states of consciousness”
floating around as geometries of consciousness inside the “pleroma”
or Avyakta or Unmanifest within the Hiranyagarbha. Brahma — the
golden central Sun or Ahamkara — is now become Aditi, in
recognizing that Her central bindu-point has 12 Adityas, limbs,
spokes, radii or rays along the lines of Universal Space. She now
assigns each of the first 12 unfoldments or geometries of
consciousness to one of Her rays. These 12 become Her (our) primary
directions or filters or Space regions for perceiving the world. We
could call these our constellations. She discovers a simple flow
that allows the rays to smoothly light up in sequence, like the
lights of a theatre-marquis, to create a smooth illusion of time-
movement, oscillating around Her equator in a kind of sine-wave — a
rainbow serpent.

She also lays out the 12 consciousness-forms in a straightforward
row, from the 1 (Sun) to 2 (Mercury) to 3 (Venus) and so on, all the
way out to the 12 (“Lunar” or outermost Systemic body); these are
her “planets.” Meanwhile “as” Brahma in Purusha She wants to span
the vertical “sushumna” or torus-core between Vishnu/Indra below Her
(Her feet chakra) and Shiva/Rudra above Her (Her crown chakra). In
recognizing Herself as the central 13, the sum of the rays, she
arranges the 12 into six chakra-pairs, each pair containing 13
consciousness-points (i.e. Herself) between them, and strings these
pairs as 6 rungs down and up a spiralling double-helix “ladder”
around herSelf: 1 (Sun) through 6 (Jupiter) down, and 7 (Saturn)
through 12 (“Moon” or outermost Systemic body) up –essentially,
proto-DNA. (Actually, this double-spiral ladder consists of stacked
tetrahedra flanked by octahedra, again simple Universal-space
geometry, but that’s a lot easier to show than to describe.)

The topmost rung has the 12 (Lunar Icosahedron) and the 1 (Solar
point); and as it has the highest “differential” (12 – 1 = 11)
between the two “planets,” the string or ladder-rung between them
vibrates extremely fast. We might hear this sound as a long “I”,
pronounced EEEE in English. The “Sun” (innermost bindu-point of the
system) and the “Moon” (actually the outermost shell or skin of the
System) become Aditi’s — or Purusha’s — two eyes. Midway above
them is the Third Eye, the Loka of the Vanir or Devas (Gods),
Avyukta in miniature.

The next-lower rung has the 2 (Mercury) and the 11 (“Isis” or South
Node); it has the next-highest differential (11 – 2 = 9) between the
two planets, and so the string rung between them vibrates slightly
slower. We might hear this sound as an “EH”.  Mercury and “Isis”
become the two “wing-points” atop Aditi’s shoulders, and midway
between them is the Throat, the Loka of the Bright Elves or Bright
Gandarvas (Angels), Akasha in miniature.

Down one rung brings us to the 10 (“Proserpina” or North Node) and
the 3 (Venus); its differential (10 – 3 = 7) vibrates a bit slower,
as an “AH”. These two “planets” become Purusha’s breasts, and midway above them is the Heart, the Loka of the Giants or Pitris (Ancestors), Buddhi in miniature.

Next we come to the midpoint, where Brahma-Aditi has placed herself.
As the 13, she is the Earth, and her “shadow” is Pluto. These form
Purusha’s Solar Plexus. This central node is unvoiced, sounding
as “H”. This is the Loka of Middle Earth, the Humans; Ahamkara in
miniature.

Down one more rung brings us to the 4 (Mars) and the 9 (Neptune);
their differential (9 – 4 = 5) is a bit slower, vibrating as an “O”
or rounded “AW”. These two planets are Purusha’s spleen (Mars) and
liver (Neptune); midway below them is the Navel, the Loka of the
Fire Giants, Manas in miniature.

Descending one rung further we arrive at the 8 (Uranus) and the 5
(Asteroids); their differential (8 – 5 = 3) is yet slower, and
vibrates as an “U” (almost as in “should”). These two planets are
Purusha’s ovaries or hips; midway below them is the Sex, the Loka of
the Dark Elves or Dark Gandharvas, Prana in miniature.

Descending to the bottom rung we find the 6 (Jupiter) and the 7
(Saturn); their differential (7 – 6 = 1) is the slowest, and
vibrates as “W” (almost as in “boot,” but with tongue very far back
and with very closely pursed lips. These are Purusha’s buttocks;
midway and below them is the Base, the Loka of the Dwarves, Annamaya
in miniature.

Sounding these notes in order up and down the ladder gives us
IEAHOUW – WUOHAEI, the Mantra of Purushic (Adityaic) Full-Body
Wholeness…

………………………………………

Delighted to hear any piece of the puzzle you’d like to share! This is
definitely going to have to be a group thang.

………………………………………

…This reminds me that everything I’ve ever written and
everything I’ll ever write is just a small dyke on the bottom of the
ocean floor. It’s not true; it’s not false; there’s no point in
belief or disbelief. It doesn’t keep the ocean out; it doesn’t keep
the ocean in. At best, it shows only (in itself) where the ocean
appears not to be in that moment.

A longdead sailor’s skull, its ivory now turned to gold. Who
notices; who benefits? A minnow swims in and looks out of dead
eyesockets. For a moment the skull dreams it is again a man.

………………………………………

Oh, yes, and of course you were right, if it matters — I am indeed a
black magician, the very blackest. If you like, I am both Satan and
God, prideful coal-black hateful ignorance and lovingly humble
emptiful enlightenment, and the full spectrum in between, and none of
the above. I am Hitler; I am MMY; I am George W. Bush and the Orionite ET “Illuminati”; I am the Antichrist Pope to come; I am the dreaded Tsunami; I am ravaged and tortured Iraq; I am the world, happy and heartbroken, wreathed in smoke and radiant with light; I am RudraJoe
festooned in rudraksha, slaving freely over a hot stove. My eyes are everywhere. I bind, I release, I twirl, and I do absolutely nothing. How could it be otherwise? If it exists at all, there I am. If it doesn’t exist at all, there I am. Sometimes I forget, but that’s OK too. There I am! Right?

:-)

………………………………………

Yes, actually I just meant [G.W.Bush] is a non-existent radiant reflection of our blissful Self; all that we see “him” (and everything else) to be — on closer look turns out to be our own movies, our own stories, we’re happily throwing onto “him”…:-)
………………………………………

…here’s maybe another clearer way to take a look at
the whole thing (with thanks to Byron Katie):

Generally, any feeling of stress or unpleasantness accompanying a
thought is a cue that there is a mistake or distortion of some kind –
– some kind of denial of the perfection that we (and our mirror)
already are, here and now. So we might take a closer look at the
thought.

When we think (for example), “I just wish he [Bush] would wake up
and go home,” how does that thought feel in our bodymind?

Not saying we *should* drop the thought, but how would we feel
without it?

Can we see any reason to drop it? (Again, not saying we should)

And, finally, let’s turn it around: Does “I just wish I [Jim] would
wake up and go home” feel more true?
 
………………………………………

…It seems there are two components to the
nonexistent ego that make it think it is existent: Belief in time,
and belief in space.

Belief in time arises when the ego engages in memory (past) and
desire (future). Looking a little closer at our thoughts shows us
that both these things arise and subside in the NOW; there is in
fact only NOW.

Belief in space arises when the ego engages in inside vs. outside,
self vs. other, me vs. not-me, right vs. wrong, good vs. bad.
Looking a little closer at our thoughts shows us that all these
things arise and subside in the HERE; there is in fact only HERE.

Simply watching, in a non-judgemental way, the various antics of the
ego in thinking thoughts that project other-than-here-now, is really
all that’s required.

I realize this appears to fly in the face of MMY’s teaching to avoid
this practice, lest it lead to a divided mind. But in fact the mind
is already divided, and it is the quiet, practiced, conscious
awareness of this process that exposes it, causing ego to realize
its non-existent nature and surrender into the larger Whole. You
can’t get here/now by trying to figure out “who’s right, me or
Peter;” only by watching ego trying to figure out “who’s right.”

So there we have it, Akasha — using the intellect to discover the
intellect. Discriminate not on who is right or who is wrong, but on
who is trying to figure out who is right and who is wrong. The ego
projects the whole movie, and all the actors in it are just
projections of ourself. :-)

………………………………………

It is these Akashic strings or rungs, I believe, that are
the “cotton fiber(s)” enlivened (ideally) when one does samyama on
the relationship between the body and the Akasha, AND the lightness
of cotton fiber. I suspect they probably form not only the rungs of
one’s prototypical DNA, but also are behind the string theory of
spacetime. I have definitely found the mantric value of the various
strings — I E A (H) O U W – W U O (H) A E I — especially when
understood and chanted as overtones — to be supremely useful in
purifying the entire body into its primordial bliss and lightness,
at certain stages along the path.

Other mantras (and words in general) are pretty easily (re)cognizable as being place-markers along these rungs when one applies neighboring diphthings to distinguish between left and right chakras
of a given rung (e.g. “E” for the throat, but “AI(M)” for Mercury/Maya/Magician/Namer and “IA(Mh)” for Isis/South Node/Enchantress/Musician; “O” for the navel, but “AU(Nh)” for the Fowler/Brooder/Cosmic Egg and “UAN” for the Hunter/Warrior, and so on.

We can also apply similar linguistic rules (front of the mouth = top
of the body; back of the mouth = bottom of the body) for consonants:
labials (like B,P) in the head, labio-dentals (F, V) in the throat,
linguodentals (if that’s the right term; I mean tongue between front
teeth and contacting bottom of teeth, as in TH) in the heart, and so
on. All of this stuff is given in much greater detail on the website
(artesmagicae.com) in the Archives, if interested.

There’s also a lot more material there on the dynamics of the 12
Archetypes (Adityas) and so on, if anyone is interested.
 
………………………………………

Clearest way I know of to recognize past (and future) lives is to
understand they ARE in the Now. :-)

………………………………………

This particular mahamantra is as close to the absolute as possible, so
no closures, just vowels. From vowels to liquids to nasals to
fricatives to affricates to plosives, that’s the play from most
absolute to most material (subray) within a given loka.

………………………………………

Virtually all the seed mantras do employ nasals and the like; this one
though is pure vowel overtones — for ascension purposes, primarily.

If you prefer, you can just run through 12 basic seed-mantras in sequence around the wheel: IEM, IAMh (Ee-AhMf), EONdh (Eh-AWNdh, with tongue between teeth on the nasal), AUNh, OWN (pronounced something like AW-OOv-Nyuh),UWNkh (OO-WOONkh), WUNG, WONh (OOv-AW-hnyuh), UAN, OEMth, AIMv, EIMh. These all step the energies down from the “absolute” (vowel) to the “buddhic” (nasal) subplanes. If you want to use “S” (or any other fricatives), that steps them down one level further, to the “mental” subplane.

………………………………………

Ascension/Descension is of the present when it is of known to be of
the present. That is, it is always present as our Universal
Archetype, but may not be perceived as such — particularly when we
perceive ourself as firmly ensconced in space-time (i.e., “not-here-
now”). As far as I know the whole process is optional. It may begin
not long after Understanding Self as “Brahman,” but begins in
earnest after realizing one is not only THAT, but also THAT
collapsing into bindu-point(s). At this point everything is NOT all
the same anymore, and the practice entails finding one’s HERE-
NOW “point-of-tension” or need-to-be-of-service or need-to-know.
Much of this process after “Brahman” involves incarnating more and
more thoroughly as Spirit into the body. Ascension carries “bow-
waves” of itself into the “past” which would be experienced as run-
throughs or rehearsals on the subtle planes, generally as a more-or-
less automatic result of the “need-to-know” process of asking
certain questions and receiving certain answers. It would seems that
the vowelled mahamantra may be most useful between “Brahman” and Ascension (“Shiva”), but I would not want to limit it arbitrarily.

I believe we could say it occurs (getting back to the old model
again) when the Purusha and Prakriti are completely merged in the
new body: Prakriti having ascended all the way to the head and
Purusha having descended all the way to the base. It results after
one has learned to “know (the Universe) by Being,” and to raise and
lower the vibration of the so-called “physical” body (perhaps with
help from one’s “higher Self” –Pleaidean Self et al.), completely
into Light, and thence levitating up out of and then down into the
physical realms. It results when one sincerely (and innocently)
wants to know what it would feel like to be an “Ascended Master.”
The process (like Life) appears to be simultaneously natural and
almost unbelievably intense, as it rearranges all our preconceptions
about reality on the most fundamental levels. If there is more to it
than that, I do not know it; I certainly do not know all there is to
know about it.
 
………………………………………

[Comment on the signicance of 108] My current understanding (open to revision) is 9 Lokas X 12 Aditya/Archetypes = 108 Loka-Archetypes. (I am more familiar with the 144 as compassing a more “fractal” or holographic approach to the 12 rays X 12 subrays/ray = 144 subrays, to yield 144 “Solar Angels.”) You?

………………………………………

…Some stuff on the mechanics of the nakshatras popped up some time back; didn’t think to look at a quad-unfoldment of them. (May tie in well with the 9 lokas too actually since they are already a basis for the nakshatras, as 3 x 3 guna/subgunas.) Food for thought if I ever get on that kick again, which I kind of hope I don’t. :-)

………………………………………

…A lot of this is in Mitchell’s books on sacred geometry, I think? I was hoping for a breakdown of the mechanics behind them, but this is most helpful. Since they do seem so lunar, probably RJ’s 4-pada x 27 nakshatras is a propos: Would
seem maybe to be a triple unfoldment of guna-subguna-subsubguna x
the four elements (or four cardinal directions), maybe. Which actually brings us back again to the 12 (guna x elements = Adityas) x 9 (guna-subguna Lokas)…I am kind of sorry I asked *lol*

………………………………………

…I am not so quick to completely equate prana with breath at all nowadays — Pranaflow (in its various forms, including
electromagnetic, either within or without this physical body) seems somewhat more to be a function of attention than specifically breath.

………………………………………

FWIW a protean alphabet did emerge (looking something like a cross
between Sanskrit and Tolkien’s Elvish) of 72 letters, each correlated
to a ray and subray of the body, and each character an actual map of
where in the body it resounds. That was fun :-)

………………………………………

…I suspect if there was a desire in that direction one could find 5 unfoldments of each letter to encompass the 360 degrees. The pentangle is a marvelous key to some calendrical relationships, even in the solar calendar. Too complicated to get into here — it’s all on the artesmagicae website anyhow.

………………………………………

*lol* I didn’t read it out of a book,…The letters emerged in gold out of gold, and it took a few years to hone my focus enough to make them out clearly. If I had gotten them from a book, I would have told you so.

…On the other hand, they are (as mentioned) notably reminiscent of
Tolkien’s Elvish (albeit considerably more logical and self-referent),
so feel free (as always) to draw your own conclusions :-)

[Comment on:…find 5 unfoldments of each letter to encompass the 360 degrees]

The easiest way to do this would be to combine each of the 72 letters
with each of (the) 5 conventional vowels — I E A O U — hence: RI,
LI, MI, BhI, BBhI, BI; RE, LE, ME, BhE, BBhE, BE; and so on. (This
drops the 72 letters ending in W [vOOv], and would thus not include
the permutations on the most material plane.)

…The Bh in this case being a crude representation of a sonant
bilabial fricative (that is a “V” sound made with both lips, not
with bottom lip against top teeth), and the BBh being a sonant
bilabial affricate (“BV,” with the “V” as above).

…you can have a blast perusing old manuscripts of alphabets trying to find the one that matches. If you do, let me know. :-) I think Tolkien was a pretty good Seer, if it comes to that.

………………………………………

…A-Brahm see Dee see Brahm/A-Brahm. Somewhat familiar with his stuff but was never drawn to his Enochian Angelology — Watchtowers and all that — for some reason. Powerful but not personally appealing. Think the Jehova’s Witnesses are playing with it?

………………………………………

If one is a Fool for Love, does a-loof mean evol-ution? I say Yes,
because no doubt the golden Egg (l’oeuf) implies the three gunas and
their purpose in and as the Hiranyagarbha-toroid of evolution, ever
turning out and about and inside itSelf, but lost inside of which one
remains (apparently) aloof from what is observed, and hence lost in
space-time/otherness.

Hence awareness of no-self (zero) AS the Fool/Love/L’oeuf/Golden Goose-Egg itself, no-time and no-space (Here-Now), obviates evolution, for one is now no longer *in* the Gunas; one *is/isnot* the gunas — all being now Perfect, ever the same, ever changing.

On the other hand …

………………………………………

Tune in next week for another riveting episode of “All My Gunas”…

………………………………………

…you are Absolutely right; sometimes silence is the best Mahavakya.

………………………………………

The third standard Wholeness option (in addition to (a) the “Absolute”
Sushumna mahamantra up and down the central rungs:
I E A(H)O U W – W U O(H)A E I
given previously, and (b) Wheel of Time (the Adityas), given above, IEM, IAMh, EON(dh), and so on) is (c) seed-mantras in planetary double-helix (Ida-Pingala) sequence: the path of descent from the Sun to
Jupiter (IEM, AIM, EON[dh], UAN, OWN, WUNG) and the path of ascent from Saturn to the “Moon” (UWN[kh], WONh, AUNh, OEM[th], IAM[f], EIM[ph]). See above for approximate pronunciations.

A number of other double-helix-patterns (as well as other seed-
mantras) may be engaged in addition this six-node sequence, but this
is simple and “good to go.”
 
………………………………………

As you say, Prakriti chooses. That these mantra-patterns are
appearing here now is a direct result of their being “invoked” by
those who are prepared to use them. They are based upon a matrix or
Divine Name of 72 letters, not 52. Those who are drawn to this
pattern will Understand; those who aren’t, won’t use them: in any
event these are not specifically mantras to be dwelled on singly at
this time, as an ishta-devata, but rather to be played with lightly
in sequence(s) to awaken the Whole. No matter how much of an air
type or fire type we may be, we contain and embody all of it as the
perfect Whole, and now is the time (if you believe in time) to wake
that up; to remember that.

And yes, you are quite right about one vs. many syllables. These are
all one-syllabled; a diphthonged vowel (as in AUNh) still counts as
one syllable. There are much more “pointed” two-syllabled mantras to
focus on awakening one’s specific Solar Angel, etc., which I am not
going into here.

As to the central column predating mantra — yes, true, but (on the
other hand) there are actually differences of vibration within
the “Absolute” and that’s what we’re awakening here — the
liveliness or “Personality” within or across the “Impersonal” Abyss.
Hence the ability to raise and lower one’s vibration.
 
………………………………………

*lol* And yet when the Knowledge appears to you abundantly, here now and free of charge, you also complain that it doesn’t fit into your old bottle… ;-)

Everything you are asking for has (Now) just been handed to you; it is
simply — as a cook-friend of mine once said — that you think you’re
looking for specific boogers. :-) Good line, by the way.

………………………………………

I know you already know this, but since you’re pretending to be in
ignorance at the moment, I’ll pretend not to be at the moment, and
reiterate that all of these things — M-M-Y, T-M-O, M-O-U-S-E — are
projections *of* YourSelf, *through* YourSelf, *to* YourSelf. Self is
all there is. There is only One of Us, prismed into spacetime. There
is nothing and no one you can perceive “out there” that is not simply
a projection of yourSelf, through YourSelf, and onto YourSelf. No
amount of reading “holy scripture” or doing good to “others” is going
to ever satisfy you like remembering this. And this is gained by
having the testicular (and/or ovarian) fortitude to stand alone — all
one. Who is the teacher? Who is the taught? What is the Knowledge? “I AM.”

………………………………………

…Sat-yuga already IS, and the best way to spread it is to BE it :-)

…Sat Yuga’s already here; always has been, always will be — if you have the courage/discrimination to stand all-one and admit it
:-)

[Comment on: …can you tie the mercurial to the saturnian]

…I don’t see a need to tie them together, any more than I need to tie my buttock (saturn) to my throat (mercury). They seem to take care of themselves nicely without my having to micromanage it all. Those Hitlerian or Nietzschian fantasies you spoke of can evaporate pretty damn fast when Brahman has you and it becomes abundantly obvious that you are/have always been utterly perfect (just like the world) and no better and no worse than the dog feces by that fire hydrant.
Literally.

…Heaven on Earth doesn’t depend on anyone except You, as far as You are concerned. Once you jump in, the whole world changes; You ARE the whole world. This may not be a lot of fun at first (although it is an immense relief) but it can warm up pretty quickly to sustain
any level of love/ecstasy. The paradox is — always changing, ever the same. How do these two qualities can co-exist — impermanence and permanence? How can the Impersonal, unchanging Abyss can also be Lively and Personal? I can only say, it just IS. One of those paradoxical qualities one can’t wrap one’s head around so long as one stays in slice-and-dice rational spacetime. Have to be wholehearted to embrace it all — jump right into the Abyss, fearlessly and with full trust.

………………………………………

My understanding of Shri, based on sound value, is that Shri (and
She) is predominantly Uranian (in Pisces), the Magenta Forestress,
the Sex Chakra of the Maha-devi, the magnetic half of pranic
electromagnetism (Indra the Seed-Sower being the Electric half), the
goddess of wells, merchants/foodgrowers and hence generosity,
fortune, temperance, etc. (As such she is the “emanation” of Saturn,
and the Lady of the divine “mons veneris.”)

Now this Aditya *does* bear a very interesting relationship to
Mercury (in Gemini), the Orange Mage, the Throat Chakra of the Maha-
deva, for as His Inverse (i.e., perfect harmonic; reflected up-down
across the equinox in the Taurean-equinox system), She gives birth
to Him (ca. Feb. 1), is “slain” (ca. May 1) by Him and His partner
the Yellow-Green Enchantress (Isis/”South Node”), is reborn to them
(ca. Aug. 1), and “slays” him (ca. Nov. 1). These dates are implicit
in the ray-subray patterns of the 144 Solar-Angel calendar; as you
can see they have been preserved and (still) somewhat understood in
the Western Tradition.
 
………………………………………

My understanding of suffering is it’s a blessed feedback-sign that
one is “thinking” an incorrect thought with the bodymind; i.e., not
fully Here Now; one is overlaying a “should” or “ought” onto what IS.
Relaxed breathing and pure emptiful attention on what IS (and watching the movies one is spinning out of oneSelf and superimposing on the Indescribable Beauty of oneSelf) dissolves all projected suffering back into its component bliss, and “Heaven” and “Earth” are no more.

………………………………………

You wanna try Byronizing, maybe? What is it about life as it is that
bothers you the most – what do you most deeply feel should be
different than it is?

Ah well, if you ever get tired of all the suffering and want to finish off your attachments once and for all, Byron Katie’s your woman: “Loving What Is.” In the meantime, enjoy the samsara and the fiction of being a real live ego :-)

………………………………………

I am all of you, but you already knew that :-)

………………………………………

I have to say it surely wasn’t hard to see him [MMY] as a blazing Sun;
if he ever looked at you on the India course he’d flood you out into
golden infinity. The energy around him was like a blast furnace. And
then there’s the equally-obvious human side, just to spice up the
Brahman paradox *lol*

………………………………………

…at times we have found the Urantia book (albeit perhaps imperfectly
channelled) to be a most interesting glimpse into the intricacies of
universe management…

…we don’t think we have heard the last about crop circles. Pretty clearly they are NOT all hoaxes perpetrated by Jed n’ Lem with a piece er plahwood. At any rate, an openness to See the wonder of what is before us is a significant part of genius, or so implies Einstein, if [I] remember correctly.

………………………………………

…it is all Self appreciating Self….it is not the work of the ego, which was knocked flat on its petulant ass, stretched kicking and screaming between absolute bliss and absolute suffering simultaneously. In fact, the action of Self flooding into Self EXPOSED the ego for the petulant ass it was.

…The longer I have lived and the better I have gotten to know myself, the more I realize MMY is just a particularly stupendous mirror. Everything I have ever judged in him, I have later come to see in myself. As I have come to recognize and acknowledge those evils in myself, they “disappear” and MMY (or the World or whatever) smiles that much brighter.

………………………………………

This is a really nice post, wayback. Right, I am certainly NOT
advocating rationalizing away another’s behavior as a means of
denial or suppressing our own feelings. Those feelings are worthy of
our attention. I am only saying that everyone “outside” ourself —
be they guru, spouse, or George W. Bush — is an absolutely innocent
mirror of our own dramas.

Clean up our own act and the mirror “miraculously” cleans up as
well. The “shoulds” and “oughts” we place on others’ behavior and on
Life turn out to be all self-judgement, and once we admit the
possibility of the “evil” in ourselves that we have been condemning
out there, it resolves. One way or another, that behavior is no
longer an issue; I no longer “need” it.

Just because I no longer know if MMY “is” a con-man or not, doesn’t
mean I am going to write out a $100K check to him. It’s just not an
issue. He is an innocent mirror, not my source and sustenance.
Everything he was to me, I now am to myself. Byron Katie is one of
the best at providing a quick and easy means to turn this around.

………………………………………

…there is no timespace where Self is concerned. But that part of us
that still believed in timespace was utterly blown away by his [MMY]
proximity, for we could no longer use the illusion of timespace to
ignore him.

………………………………………

…the joke of it is, this Perfection has indeed always been
here, but it is best recognized with a unified heart and
a “translucent” intellect — not with denial and moodmaking. And if
you try to point out this self-evident Perfection to someone who
hasn’t cleaned up their (self-)judgements, they just think you’re
nuts. :-)

………………………………………

[Byron Katie] is a brilliant Master. I’d say she shows how to
use the intellect to uncover its projections. Once discovered, they
disappear, leaving Being. Perhaps jnana-yoga would be the best
description.

………………………………………

… would it be so hard to imagine that the the conscious mind appears generally to be a mere fragment of our multidimensional Self, capable of being and doing far more than our (false) modesty would have us believe?

………………………………………

Yes, Self recognizing Self as playing dynamically amidst the infinite fullness of Self, while ever remaining the Self. What better description of Self exists than that? The laughter of Self- recognition, cognized by EasyOne, appreciated by Rory, expounded upon by Jim — three in One, ever the Self delighting in the Self!

:-)

………………………………………

Is this thought true?

Do we know for certain that this thought is true?

How do we feel when we think this thought?

(Not saying we *should* drop it, but) How would we feel without this
thought?

(Again, not saying we *should* drop it, but) Can we see any reason
to drop this thought?

Is the turnaround truer or as true? “The obvious conclusion is that
*I* am a dreamer, but not very realistic.”

If desired we may apply this process as well to the statement
previously made about George W. Bush (something along the lines
of “he acts dumber than he is”), or anything else one perceives to
be “others” or “out there” causing any degree whatsoever of
discomfort or “suffering.”

All glory to Guru Katie.

:-)
 
………………………………………

This reminds me of the Bodhisattva Vow, which is really not a vow,
but an admission of a (slightly) flawed consciousness: “I shall remain here, not fully enlightened, so long as any sentient being anywhere remains unenlightened.” This is not really a noble aspiration; it is rather the Self-evident, obvious dilemma of unity.  Since we contain everyOne as a mirror of ourSelf, we are only as enlightened as what we perceive around us. Only by expanding ourselves to recognize Unenlightenment, darkness, lack of compassion, confusion, hatred, ignorance, and so on, to be actually not *out there* but merely petty dramas *in here* — only Now can we finally see through them, realize the completely illusory nature of self vs. other in maya, and eliminate all suffering for all time.

:-)

………………………………………

Whoa. What Absolute? Anyone who says “the Nature of the Absolute
is…” and then goes on to fill in the blanks is a bald-faced liar.
Isn’t he? :-)

…No? Yes? Any difference between the two? How can we condition the
Absolute? Doesn’t that make it Relative? Aren’t both of these already
just concepts, themselves conditioned?

………………………………………

…When we impose some condition on what IS, we suffer.

………………………………………

…Yes, when the body is hungry it feels weak. So?
…Yes, the mind feels like exploding. So?
…Obviously attempting to identify with impermanence causes suffering. Nature’s way of telling us we are thinking something incorrect, something which IS not.
…Yes, constantly identifying with the movie of one’s own projecting. Suffering.

I am here because I have absolutely nothing better to do than to better Understand You, and so to better Understand mySelf.

…What IS, is neither Absolute nor Relative

Can’t pin our “oughts” and shoulds” on anything; that way lies
madness. Relative is just a concept. Inside and outside, self and
other are just concepts. Believing in concepts implies suffering.

We already are what we’re striving for; we just forget sometimes.

………………………………………

What “You”? In what way are “You” and “I” different?

There is only Vaj.

(fine print: You may still have to work out any small remaining
resistances to the Perfection of what IS, on/in your own time.)

The [TM] Movement, like anything else, is an empty mirror for us to hang our stories on….

………………………………………

Isn’t it irrelevant? We don’t owe each other anything. Freedom IS.
Appropriate or “perfect” action is automatic. The various actors keep
on rubbing against each other until they are ground smooth.

Oh, and as far as the movies go — If you’re enjoying yourself,
project away! (Just being aware karma still continues if we think and
act from attachments or as if we are real “in here” or anything is
real “out there.”) If we’re suffering, I’d try the questions and
turnaround, recognizing the utterly conditional (arbitrary) nature of
the thought and withdrawing the whole thing back into non-self or Self.

____ appears to be beautifully describing the classic symptoms of
the Dark Night of the Soul — that which strips us down to the bones,
pared of all attachments, left utterly Alone.

Whether the One who strips us is seen as the Guru, the Christ, or the
blinding sun of our own I AM, is immaterial. Our own I AM light
becomes too much to bear. In fact, an earlier post of easyone’s
experience points this out too: The Dark Night of the Soul is
triggered when we suddenly realize what we see in the Guru is in fact
nothing but our own Self. This piercing of the glamors of the old
projective nature may well bring up intense feelings of rage,
betrayal, hurt, confusion, distress and suffering in our old “ego”,
our old belief in “me vs. not-me” which now confronts its own psychic
mortality and the loss of control of its old neatly-dissected world.
Everything dies, everything falls apart, everything gets torn away; we
are stripped bare of all meaning (actually, all attachments) and left
suspended in the greyness of suffering and uncertainty. And all of
this is triggered when we see that the Self of the Guru and our own
Self are one: that in fact, there is only one Ego, only one “I AM.”

When we see that the Self of the Guru and our own Self are one, we
also begin to see the all-too-human side of the Guru, and the feeling
of being conned intensifies. This is what Dr. Pete has referred to as
the paradox of Brahman. Life is calling us to cease dividing Life into
absolute-vs.-relative, light-vs.-dark, good-vs.-bad, divine-vs.-human
(and even divine-vs.-demonic), me-vs.-not-me, inside-vs-outside, and
so on. All opposites are melted and eventually resolved into a chaotic
paradox: THAT, or the Indescribable. What we are being called to do at
this point, is to cease judging — cease judging others, but primarily
to cease judging our own “flawed” human self. We have grown up,
matured, realized that THAT alone IS.

Once we cease struggling against the process, cease resisting it, the
suffering ceases, for the suffering is only a symptom of our clinging
to our old attachments, an attempt to remain in the womb when the
birthing contractions are forcing us out into a seemingly bare, cold,
empty New World. But this “emptiness” appears only by virtue of our
comparing it to all we have “lost” — our old attachments; our old
ignorance, our old identification with the small self. In truth, it is
emptiFULL — lively with Love and appreciation. We ARE the New World
into which we are born, and it is rich and beautiful. How then can we lament the loss of the womb, when we have been given the World? We are twice-born; we are Brahman.
 
………………………………………

…everything we think is “out there” and “other” is really our own
dialogue with ourself? Nahhh, he’s just being a jerk. Right?

………………………………………

…Of course, upon the realization that ALL this “out there” is
really “in here,” the distinction actually vanishes: as does Kali Yuga
itself, as soon as we ourselves stop projecting all our dramas “out
there.” It’s such a perfect mirror!

………………………………………

YES — what MMY is doing is utterly irrelevant to anything, if
that’s where you stand. If however you’re going through the Dark
Night of the Soul of being left utterly alone, stripped bare,
disillusioned, infuriated, bewildered, realizing there is no God, no
other Guru than the Self, then that is precisely what MMY will play
out for you, and that is what Easyone has (to me at least) very
clearly represented. What Easyone is describing IS precisely the
feeling-level of the Dark Night of the Soul. We can’t draw
artificial distinctions between spiritual and material anymore.
That’s part of the whole point of the Dark Night. There IS no “up-
there-perfect-Absolute” and “down-there-imperfect-Relative-
material;” not even any more “this (teacher) is better than that
one,” which is just a fancy way of saying “I am smarter/better than
you,” and so on. All that goes.

Also, what I described before as to the Dark Night — is NOT the
same for everyone. Some slip into Brahman with scarcely a ripple;
some are dragged in kicking and screaming; some jump in and make a
helluva splash.

………………………………………

MMY like you like me like Vaj like Easyone like Shankara like Mickey
Mouse like Hitler like Kali is the perfect mirror for showing us our
stuff.

Oh yes, to speak to your question, Sal — I would love to be able to
post everything in one fell swoop, but that is not the way it works,
for me at least. I have an impulse, post something, feel the body,
see how all of “you” in me are taking what is said, and THEN the
impulse arises to speak to the questions of this one or that one, to
resolve the new issues brought up by the previous post. Hence the
need to add that this Dark Night is NOT the same for everyone —
while the original impulse to describe it was OK, it’s easy to see
how some of you are taking it too concretely, actually negating the
original purpose of verifying where we ARE, and so a new impulse
arises to add to the previous one. See? A constant balancing act.
Unwieldy, as Rudra Joe might say, but that’s how we’re all stumbling
toward takeoff, from the POV of this fool at least.

Absolutely true that seeing or appreciating yagyas and rituals as
outside the Self will tend (at best) to be an expression of god-
consciousness, not “Brahman.” (Not true that in themselves they will
bar one from “Brahman,” which cannot be obtained or lost, only
Understood or ignored; god-consciousness — like any other state — is
no real barrier to “Brahman;” only attachment to it is.)

Like these yagyas, seeing MMY, Guru Dev, and the “purity of the
teaching” as outside the Self will also (at best) tend to be an
expression of god-consciousness, not “Brahman,” and (if you like) tend
to reinforce the “golden cage of samsara.” (Though again, there is no
golden cage of samsara, per se — only a habit or belief that there
is.) No one “out there” can really give us “Brahman;” it can
(probably) only be surrendered into/conquered by a tiny/colossal step
of egolessness/Egomania, denying the illusion of the self-other
dilemma and embracing/accepting the Whole — what IS.

…one could perhaps make a case that without at least some attention on and “somatose” appreciation of the celestial qualities of the “Other,” it would appear highly unlikely that one would ever consider the “Other” worth unifying with or embracing. A “Brahman” without the Heart is a pretty poor “Brahman”!
:-)

The beauty of focus and attention is it gives us precisely what we need at any point in our Life — whether it be the sweetly powerful electromagnetic soma-flows of god-consciousness, or the Understanding that all is Self in the perfection of what IS, or both simultaneously, or neither, or even the lovely embrace of deepest, blackest Sleep…it’s all good, all just a matter of focus and attention.

With that in mind, I would like to apologize to Akasha for denying
what I perceived as his golden appreciation of Peter in “K.C.” While
perhaps true in the deepest sense that this perception was a
projection — so what? At least it is celestial, glorious — and so if
Akasha were not to deny that perception but rather to “take credit”
for it, embrace it All — then in what way is god-consciousness a
barrier to “Brahman”? Perhaps rather it is the single missing piece of
the puzzle (if indeed there ever could be such)!

Jai Guru Dev in each of Us

[Comment on:…Is there a difference between statues of deities that have been formally charged with prana-shakti and those purchased at Pier 1?]

That entirely depends on which “lens” of consciousness you view them
through. In ignorance, no difference. In god-consciousness, immense
difference. In Brahman, no difference. And so on… :-)

………………………………………

 
Perhaps one could say this [rituals are 95% empty] of Life itself, which appears to be even more “empty” than 95% — rather a thin, colorful soap-bubble-film of drama around and within the emptiful radiant vastness of ourSelf. At any rate while I would tend to agree with you at the moment from my own POV, I cannot ignore the testimony of people I respect with regards to yagyas, pujas and the like. Their Life-enhancing (i.e. soma-enhancing) experiences are undeniable, and to me appear to be of the nature of god-consciousness. Certainly from the point of view of GC it would seem these yagyas and rituals make perfect sense, as in them we are paying intense attention to the various deities.

And again, as such soma-flows and so on appear irrelevant in
ignorance, highly relevant in GC, irrelevant in Brahman (where
everything is obviously the same), and again highly relevant in
feeding the alchemical divine fire-Self of “Shiva-Consciousness,” and
so on, I would be hard-put to make a definitive and final statement on
the matter.

…(Just think of all that serious time and energy you’ve wasted if you actually admitted the Truth has been with you all along! The horror!) :-)

………………………………………

The very reason I can speak so bluntly is this: I know I am talking to
my SELF, but a portion of my SELF that has long denied me and believes it can exist on its own. I am watching this snake writhe, twist, elude, distract, and bite itself (thinking it is biting another) to preserve its illusion of separation and superiority. But I see it now,
and in its heart of hearts it knows I see it. The game is over, for me at least. :-)

………………………………………

Absolutely; any attachment to “experience” or even to any definition
or conception of “enlightenment” is still subtle bondage to
something transitory, wherein the Self has not yet completely
understood the fundamental and all-inclusive nature of the Self.

On the other hand, it would appear that only the enlightened feel
comfortable saying “I am enlightened” (as well as “I am in
ignorance”) or “I am awake” (as well as “I am asleep”) or “I am
free” (as well as “I am a slave”), for only in enlightenment are all
of these things Understood as the same.

…It would appear that regardless of one’s “path,” so long as one
believes there actually IS a “path,” the “witness” is still mediated
through the idea-of-separate-self and hence subtle ego until it
isn’t.

………………………………………

…Yes! And everything You see/feel in me, You already are, or you
couldn’t appreciate it at all. To even perceive something, we have to
be resonating on its “level” or “frequency” and so that which You see,
You are. Hence, beauty lying in the eye of the beholder, the Other
being a mirror of the Self, and so on. Very nice Work. :-)

………………………………………

Of course, as you pointed out in your “kill the Buddha” post, one
might also take the opposite tack — the “neti neti” path of absolute
denial, drawing the target around the arrow (Self) and mercilessly
slaying all outside that circle, all that is not True, like Krishna
and Arjuna wiping out the “relatives” on the battlefield. Either way
works, the Unitive Path of “Love” or the Separative Path of “Hatred,”
so long as it is done with a whole heart.

………………………………………

…After all, what earthly difference does it make to any of you what “state of consciousness” I (or any of us) may or may not be “in”? The only thing that really matters is where YOU are willing to stand. As to whether we may be delusional/deluding others — when we get to the
heart of it that is something we all have to decide for ourselves, whether we do that by choosing which texts or teachers or traditions we resonate with, or by simply following our own inner Truth, or by some combination thereof.

………………………………………

…we are all “projecting” everything all the time from the Self), such truisms nonetheless do not serve when used to deny one’s feeling-level. The Heart is beyond ego, beyond the small self, and quite capable of perceiving the energy-signature of…

This might be akin to what Peter has called “confusion of dharmas” —
i.e. misapplying the Truth of one “state” to justify bad behavior in
another — like what some Gurus have done to evade responsibility for
obvious misdeeds and irresponsibility in “this” relative world by
claiming “absolute” freedom or “absolute” automatism/slavery (take
your pick; they’re both true), or that they are just an innocent
mirror. While all of this is true, it doesn’t relieve them of
accountability to maintain integrity and responsibility in this world.

Even if one is on the “Hatred” (or “Wisdom”) path of neti neti,
discarding all “outside” and arriving emptily at Self alone, this path
is probably best practiced with integrity, ALONE, BY ONESELF, for as
long as it takes, as Jed McKenna nicely recommends — not simply to be
used as an excuse to try to wound others, vent bile, prove one’s own
superiority, and deny it all later because “it is all bliss” or “it is
all the Self.”

Along the same lines, I believe it is very good to use the Mirror
analysis (as Byron Katie recommends) to realize that all is indeed a
drama of the Self, but that doesn’t mean one will sit idly by while
injustice is done “out there” — as this too is “in here.” It merely
means the “charge” on our perception is removed; if action is really
necessary we will act from love or wholeness rather than from hatred
or denial.

………………………………………

And yes, I am aware that this whole drama is simply a projection of
and from inside myself — among those elements of me that I like to
call akasha, jim, and so on. In speaking to them and of them, I am
speaking to and of myself, realigning the elements of myself to better
reflect what IS. If what I have said here doesn’t seem to reflect
their or your reality, that’s OK — as always, follow your own Hearts.
I apologize if I have wounded you, Akasha, in pointing out what
appears to be an occasional lack of integrity between us. I know you
were probably not consciously aware of it, any more than I was. And
again, if it it doesn’t ring true deepdown for you, that’s OK —
simply consider it my own projection, venting etc.; I don’t mind. :-)

…However, I am probably going to continue pointing out this “biting
snake” when I see it, as it appears to be the real source of the
Wound, and bringing the Wound into simple awareness appears to be the best discrimination.

explore and discover and create whole universes of unknown riches. I
am so pleased with Us all; we sing together and separately in ways we have perhaps only begun to suspect. No matter what other costumes we may adopt or roles we may play out, on closer look, this is how you are to me, and how I love you as i love myself, for we share one Heart. Thank you all for Being.

I’d like to tell you a story…

There once was a boy named Jack whose Mother being in very dire
straits gave him their only cow to sell at market so they could have
some money to buy food. On the way to market, Jack met a mysterious
old man in a shining white robe with twinkling eyes and a long white
beard. “Here, Jack,” said the old man. “Give me your cow and I will
give you a magic bean! With this bean, you will become rich and
powerful, wealthy beyond belief! Like that, like that.” So Jack
traded the cow for the bean and went home whistling to his Mother.

When his Mother saw the bean, she flew into a tirade. “You MORON!
You little PISSANT! What have you DONE?” she cried. “I trusted you
with all our worldly wealth and you gave it away to the first con-
man you met!” And she took Jack’s bean and threw it out the window.

Night had fallen, and Jack went to bed, hungry and tired and alone
and angry at the world and heartily ashamed of himself for being
such a complete and utter fool.

That’s the end.

Or at least, that’s the part you keep re-reading over and over.

Maybe you’re still holding onto that magic bean, I don’t know. But
if you can just drop it, throw it out the window, and surrender into
the Dark Night, by morning that bean will have sprouted to Heaven,
and you can climb it right up into the Heart — the world of the
Giants, where untold wealth indeed lies in wait for you.

But you will never never see it if you are still holding onto the
bean and fighting off the Dark Night. If you don’t drop it, the bean
won’t have a chance to sprout, and you are stuck reading the same
page of the same boring old story, forever and ever.

Your choice.

………………………………………

You are asking a question which makes perfectly good sense from the
viewpoint of anyone up into UC, but from Brahman is completely
unanswerable as it is currently posed, as it sets up an inherent
self-other duality that turns out to be untrue. In Brahman, there
literally is no other, no world “out there;” it is all “in here.”
From here, no one is other than me; everyone is quite simply myself,
as if Gods at play creating Universes of our own design. Though
they/we may often make a great show of denying it, most of these are
actually quite content in their/our suffering, and want no aid with
their/our dramas whatsoever. Even most of us who call
themselves “seekers” really don’t want to wake up: not NOW, anyhow. Maybe “tomorrow.” :-)

When one of these movie-makers is truly ready to awaken, they let Us
know when they/we are ready; they/we contact Us, and together
we “shut up shop,” stop the movie, and re-introduce that part of
OurSelf to OurSelf. Our own “waters” rush in to meet again over and
through the dismantled dam to remingle with the
previously “separated waters” within, and we greet OurSelf again as
a dreamer newly awakening from a dream, or perhaps almost as a
convalescent coming out of quarantine, depending on the nature of
the drama they’ve enjoyed. :-)

………………………………………

Yes, the really beautiful thing about the “Multiverse” is that everyone apparently has virtually perfect free will to create their own “Universe,” in their own image: everyone in essence a God making their own movie(s), telling their own stories. Yes to all of it.

Jed McKenna (“Enlightment: the Damnedest Thing”; “Spiritually
Incorrect Enlightenment”) distinguishes nicely between Enlightenment
and movie-making. There appears to be a belief among many New-Agers that “becoming Enlightened” simply means making a more palatable movie — maybe one that is non-threatening, light, pleasant, G-rated. While this may be the handiwork of a “mature soul” (one we might call in CC, GC or UC), it is still ego-bound. Jed might say on the other hand that “becoming Enlightened”
(what we might call “Understanding of Brahman”) has NOTHING to do with the contents of the movie whatsoever: complete detachment (and/or complete embrace). This is recognizing (as Byron Katie points out in “Loving What Is”) that all the stories we place “out there” are simply that — just stories of our own making, superimposed on a screen of — what? ourSelf. The “out there” is nothing but a completely innocent mirror of ourSelf. Whether the movie is a love-story, horror-story, comedy, or tragedy — it is STILL just a movie and a shakti-bound projection of maya if we are believing it is anything other than ourSelf.

No worries — Maya is a lovely partner, the best (and only) Lover in
the world! Without Her, how would we create our Universe, get feedback on our vibrational-frequency and thinking-quality via the “charge” of bliss and/or suffering associated with each thought and perception, learn the Divine Laws and finally to embrace everything — how would we learn to align ourSelves with ourSelf? The Universe is indeed as we are — not so much in the story-content of the movie, which is really irrelevant, but in the artistry and quality of the Life-film itself, which breathes the loving attention and radiant light-signature of its Maker in every cel.

…Just to clarify a bit — by “story-content” I mean “plot.” Being
attached to the plot of our dramas is like saying a two-star Disney
flick is a “good” story because of its happy ending, while Romeo and
Juliet is a “bad” story because everybody dies. A truly “good” story
is one that reveals portions of ourSelf to ourSelf, has Self-
referent resonances, overtones, fractal harmonics, and aesthetic
balance; one that embraces in its own microcosm the whole of Life,
so that we emerge from it with a richer, deeper, profounder
appreciation of ALL-THAT-IS.

………………………………………

…Recognizing MMY “as” Hitler, simultaneously entertaining the
profundity of God AND Satan in your awareness, is a fundamental piece of waking up to the richness of Brahman. I don’t think we really can embrace Brahman until we grasp the breathtaking enormity and subtlety of evil. The only thing left to see is that the whole drama — the whole movie — is going on inside Us, inside You, is (y)our story, (y)our Universe.

I do suggest taking a close look at Byron Katie’s “Loving What Is” —
I wish I had had access to her technique when first waking up to all
of this; it’s a truly brilliant method of integration/discrimination.

………………………………………

Hmmm. I have never been too hot on the whole “creating coherence”
thing, since the whole is obviously perfectly coherent on its own.
Maybe “recognizing coherence” or “appreciating coherence” would be
closer. As to thermodynamics — a nice idea, but only half of the
picture, it seems to me. The “neither created nor destroyed” (or “both
created and destroyed”) bit comes closer to my viewpoint than
the “everything is running down” gag, but maybe I don’t know enough
about thermodynamics to comment coherently.

………………………………………

…I love you INTENSELY just as you are, am enjoying your Universe
maybe more than you are. It’s a trip, a great story. I see you-as-me
subtly enmeshed in a loose-fitting gossomer cocoon like the finest of
webs, but I also see that those strands are on fire, burning away with
a starfire-bright flame. This too is just a story of course. “In the
end there can be only One.” :-)

I think this was how “creation” got into its current state — a
cosmic “what-if” joke that too many of our “children” took seriously
:-)

…If it’s *all* good, doesn’t that *all* include ethical “rights” and “wrongs” too…? In their own place, of course?

…As in a) perform right action, while b) remembering (particularly if
suffering, feeling condemnatory etc.) that what is perceived “out
there” is an innocent mirror for our own stories?

………………………………………

…This would appear to be a fancy way of saying Guru Dev had taken the Sixth Initiation (Shiva Consciousness) while Jesus had taken the fourth (Crucifixion, or Brahman). Sometimes fun to play with hierarchical numbers and spacetime game-boards as long as we remember
we’re really all a perfect 10, always have been, always will be — simply pretending (more or less successfully) to be otherwise. :-)

[Comment on: So from the perspective of Brahman, how does this global awakening manifest Itself?]

I really don’t know exactly how to answer this question, as
depending on which “lens” we use, we will perceive very different
qualities or aspects to Life. I can’t even say for sure there is a
global awakening per se. However I am aware overall lately of more
people “waking up” in me, new circuits lighting up and coming
online, as it were. Most of these … do not seem to be aware of
themselves as Brahman, but are nevertheless “enlightened” within my
body to one degree or other, mostly in the general CC-GC-UC
spectrum.

…the world is as we are, is not other than ourSelf, and as we erase the dramas we are overlaying on it, the more thoroughly it disappears into our primal radiance. Those “disappearing” into the radiance seem to enjoy the process quite a bit as well, as far as I can see. Nonetheless, they retain full freewill over their World-movies. I don’t see a genuine Enlightenment of the whole world until virtually everyone is at least aware of their divine status as world-creators (Devas), if not actually absolute Sons and Daughters (Siddhas) ever and always in perfect freedom. However, on the other hand, the world is already essentially perfectly enlightened and always has been, with Purusha’s chakras occupied by the various planets and beings in different states of consciousness.

…From the Solar-system viewpoint, we can see the Earth as occupying the system’s Solar Plexus. Other energies are also involved; it looks as if the Sirian system is exerting much more direct influence over the Solar System than previously. I believe Sirius mediates most of the Galactic energies for our Solar System. The galactic energies I am most familiar with are Pleaidean, and these energies too are apparently
becoming more and more tangible. It may well be that the earth herself is actually coming out of quarantine to rejoin the Universe, a kind of global correlate to “Brahman consciousness.” Evidence certainly points in this direction; this would correlate to Llundrub’s statement about the earth’s causal body dissolving.

…Actually, could you simply disregard that last post? It’s not worth a sneeze in a hurricane. Too many concepts, too many stories :-)
 
………………………………………

Yes, I did read Alice Bailey material for 1-2 years after “Brahman”
(say 1982-1984) — at which time it was most useful — but had set
it aside by the time the Galactic “politics” swam into awareness
(say 1984-1986) and apparently played a significant part in our
ascension (late 1986). I say apparently because attributing these “plasma-clouds” and their vibration-bliss-adjustments to the Pleiades felt quite right at the time, and I have as yet found no better attribution for them.
