Transcending All That Is Mind

Meditation is much more than relaxing & clearing the mind. Indeed it is also more than knowing the self or connecting with a higher nature. Meditation at its highest level is the striving to attain the original state of existence. It is that which put forth the first vibrations of consciousness that rippled within the entirety and gave forth the multitude of lesser states of consciousness (it is debatable whether lesser states of consciousness are actually such or whether the lowering of such is only an illusory effect produced by the mind. This is also highly probable for the separation of minds & consciousness.). Of all things known three states can be agreed upon as the basis of our reality, the material, the energy & the consciousness. Of these three most great minds agree that consciousness is of the highest & the most elusive. It is as difficult to control the mind as it is to control the wind & so to is it just as hard to study the varying levels of consciousness (Especially the higher ones) without ones self transcending all levels in order to necessarily be in an observational vantage point. One cannot properly study what is on high unless one becomes eye level with that which is raised.

Meditation can be used as a vehicle of consciousness transcendence. It has been said that all is mind. If indeed all is mind then in order to properly study consciousness one would need to transcend the trappings of the mind. The mind and it’s five senses are enjoyed by many but the sensational extremes of the senses which humans are drawn to serve as a permanent distraction from the natural progression of humanity from its current lower state to something much greater. I have heard many teachers exclaim that meditation is the only worthy pursuit & I understand where they are coming from. Meditation, can be a vehicle to elevate ones self to almost unthinkable levels of awareness if practiced correctly. These few individuals who reach such high levels of consciousness & wisdom benefit humanity greatly. As they say a rising tide raises all ships.

It is difficult to put words to something that is beyond things & barely attainable by thought, something you cannot truly study, touch, taste & see. I find that the word consciousness while understood for its meaning is not worthy of that which we are speaking. To know this is to understand the steepness of the mountain seekers of wisdom climb. Meditators whether they know it or not have opened the door to an unknown path that leads to a greatness that is beyond perception but can be known through experience which becomes wisdom. I hope these shared thoughts resonate with someone out there. I have been on a long journey of raising my consciousness, leaving behind material desires in pursuit of a higher state & yet trying to balance that with what is expected of me as a being in this world where lower states of consciousness are praised & materialism is the most widely taught tradition. Be well my good friends, I will write again & I wish you well in all of your pursuits.

ALL TOGETHER & ALL APART (ELEGY)

IMG_0088

Down the dark wet hole which leads into life
Through the night by swiftness of mind and fire of heart
All together and all apart

From my frail body the other departs
From the shadow full of light
Careening through the tunnel of might

Beyond the heavens thickened light
Stripped of the luminous illuminated plight
No clothing of body no parchment of light

Naked here beyond the sight
The womb of Gods bearing tight
Giving birth beyond the night

Parched am I for wisdom beyond knowledge
Bored am I with Life
Hating the body In love with wisdom
Seeking shelter beyond worldly strife.

LITTLE BLACK CANOE(SONNET)

 

Hold firm to your black canoe as it burns in a river of boiling light
Rocky is the acid like passage punishing every wrong move made
Butterflies that bite fended off by mosquito’s who bring kisses of delight
Division of the mind, difference and sameness has made you a slave

Loosen your grip on the dark vessel and leap into the boiling waters
Find through the fear that seat next to comfort as your mothers soft words
If the mind cannot be tamed at its borders
Then shatter through mind and transcend consciousness itself, be free of the 3rd

The wet of the boat is not from the river but from your tears
Existence, nonexistence, both existence and nonexistence, neither existence nor non existence
Let go of that deathly sinking boat and grab hold of the plane of heavenly cheers
Leave behind sameness, difference, both sameness and difference, neither sameness nor difference and transcend all of the pain with perseverance via persistence

I closed my eyes as all hope was lost in the pain
Exhaling slowly as the crows fell from the sky as rain.

Glossary Below
*The 3rd is in reference to the third state of consciousness 1. Repository consciousness 2. Conceptual consciousness .3 Sensory consciousness
*Existence, non existence, both existence and non existence, neither existence nor non existence (This is the Tetralemma)
*The crows represent death, and when death is transcended via the mind, when all things are known as perceptions of the mind then death itself must die or cease to exist, this is a Mahayana way of thinking.
* The black canoe represents life
*The river of light represents many things (The heavens for some, enlightenment for many, the Tathagata Gharba for others, purusha, atman or nirguna brahman, jesus, god also. What the light is, is for you to decide.)

MIND OF THE JUST MEDITATES WISDOM (Mantra)

 

Let there be goodness somewhere in the darkness
May the waters of wisdom touch the lips of those who thirst
Where in this world can we find true salvation?
May the mind of the Good be a temple of solace

Do not let the end come before liberation
World let us find wisdom & peace before we leave

If there is a higher love somewhere
Let us live in that place and leave behind the tears we have shed in the world.

The Wild & The Tamed (Aphorism)

A man/woman with uncontrolled senses is as the rider of a wild horse. He/she will never get to where he/she is going and the horse will eventually destroy him/her. A man/woman who through wisdom controls his/her senses, keeping them from their extremes, is as the rider of a tamed horse and that horse will take the rider to wherever he/she desires.

Quote

Hope is but a seed, it exists as unused potential. It cannot transform into the blossoming stage alone and if not watered then it will die. There are those who give up hope not understanding its seed like nature but I say to you there exists the strong ones, one’s of great courage who against the opposition of hopelessness they believe and have hope anyway, they water the seed of hope with wisdom and shine rays of light on its blossoming with an illuminated mind and heart. Those people are of the utmost compassion and walk this earth as though they were angels and plant new seeds of hope in others, seeds that will bring about a better future, realizing a potential that is unbound. In that hope is of the good, and in the good let there always be found a believer in something higher, forever keeping one’s own eyes to the light of something better. So do not fear hope, I say boldly and courageously have it at will, and realize your own true potential despite all adversity.

May share as long as appropriate credit is given.

I’d read many quotes yesterday speaking against hope, so I am moved to speak for it because hope is but potential and how is anything realized without it first existing as potential? So let there be potential in every heart and every mind, in any world that may exist. The better only comes if we keep the potential for the better existing.

With Courage Have Hope(Aphorism)

Isotropic Vector Matrix (Poem)

Outward expansion of sound,
a word,
all faces inward pointing
then filled with brilliant colors,
the whole found within each
piece,
the piece also found in the
whole,
fragments of consciousness littered
about the framework,
all things spinning
to some unknown end,
forever into an infinity
that folds back on itself
looking at us as our mothers,

English: Birectified_3-cube graph (octahedron)

our fathers,
the eyes of infinity,
the children of the source
all around us
in this face centered
cubic.
This tetragrammaton
paradox.

ADVAITA (Poem)

The Earth seen from Apollo 17.

The Earth seen from Apollo 17. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Child I remember when you
were born
How you blinked for the first time,
how you cooed in my arms,
the heavenly light that shined
down on you,
the world was brighter when you were born,
now you grow a heart that shoots to the heavens,
a seed transformed into a beautiful flower,
the acorn giving way to a mighty tree,
and we your parents the earth from
whence you came,
is there any difference between the substance
of the Earth and the Substance of the tree?
Can one be without the other?
Although all things move into
change
although one form diminishes
as another rises
never think that I have left your side
for we are one my child
no separation
different representations of one thing
one substance
we your parents are always with you
and a part of you

49 day Meditation Challenge Update: Days 8,9 and 10

Hello amazing readers. Its time for an update on this meditation challenge.

Day 8.
I began with an empty stomach, my hands in the mudra of intuition, I used the technique pioneered by Guruji Krishna Ananda. With this method you visualize yourself as a bright light that is vibrating at a high rate. You take that light and spread to the whole world to bring goodness to the world. It was a great feeling and the visualization left very satisfying feeling in my heart that I carried all day long after meditation.

Day 9
I used a Gnostic meditation facing the north east. Hands were in the shape of a circle. Head is slightly tilted up instead of down. Eyes are rolled further into the head than normal. Breathing is with the stomach and done very slowly. During this meditation, I contemplated my oneness with the source of all things. My oneness with all of the people of the world as projections from the one source. Many amazing profound thoughts filled my mind. It was like being in an unlimited stream of advanced consciousness. Certain special parts of the meditation technique are left out as to not offend any Gnostic temples who keep their traditions to themselves.

Day 10 (Things get interesting here…again)
Ummm so this is the day I revisit that Hermetic technique from day 3. Very easily I slipped back into the trance like state, my body and face felt completely numb as darkness began to cover my close eyes. I felt like I was in that vast dark place again. I was prepared to see anything but For a long time I just sat in the darkness and nothing happened. After about twenty minutes suddenly countless long tube like structures of light began flying by me at high speeds. I must admit this was a little jolting. As the lights passed I could see these Dark Triangular structures int between the speeding light tubes. I remained there observing for a while. I noticed my energy began to vibrate very very violently, I’ve never felt vibrations that strong so I began to come out of the trance or self hypnosis. This time the transition back to my regular state was very smooth. Needless to say I had a lot to think about the rest of the day.

Feel free to leave comments and questions. Follow this blog for more updates. Soon I will be pushing into the more extreme meditations, I’ll elaborate on those another time.
