Don't accept suffering.
- I am a temporary emanation of matter which was something else before
my birth - indeed the matter I am now was something else after my
birth. I was born with a pattern I am a unique pattern, there will
never be anther one like me, there never was this pattern before, I
have sense perceptions which create the illusion that I have a soul;
i do not, the divine spark is in all matter! All life that reacts
with that around it, that changes with what it meets to form new
forms. My matter has in its pattern a memory of all it has been and
seen, and some matter brings me fragments of memories from far off
places that i do not understand. My matter has been the matter of
all other beings ever and my matter has also been and will be again,
a part of your matter. Death is an illusion, birth is an illusion.
I was concerned by the comments that life is flawed. If you find
life flawed you are asking the wrong questions of it, and if you are
suffering it is because we are creating the conditions for suffering.
Life is life. We have jurisdiction over our patterns, each unit is
autonomous, but in reality no unit is distinct. The myth of
individualism has been the mark of our evolution, we have grown away
from connectedness and saw ourselves as distinct, perhaps we were
manipulated or maybe we hoodwinked ourselves or maybe it was an
unconscious mutual development, the evolution of a partnership
between the exploiter and the exploited, but they came to tell us we
had souls and they were destined to suffer. I am divine energy I am
divine light. If I accord with this and the energy around me I shall
not suffer. Unfortunately exploitative relationships have polluted
the harmonious accord and we are estranged from all other beings. It
is however possible to use the guile one has, and I know I am here
writing to intelligent beings, to accord with harmony. In this life,
with this pattern that is me and I am.
Suffering is a necessity of false creation and misunderstanding, it
is not inherent in the energy flow of the Most High, God, Dao,
Infinite Universe etc... We have amazing powers. The question is to
what extent we will deny them to maintain our parasitical
relationship with those who farm us. We accept their doctrine of
suffering that we may follow our lusts desire. Our lust for
pleasure, our lust for sustanence, our lust for security. I am as
guilty as anyone of these sins, and only together will we escape this
trap of negativist thinking, because only together will we have
harmony. The harmony of the hermit is not the highest state at this
troubled momentary phase of being. We are at a critical crossroads.
Peace be to peaceseekers.
- Hi Gerry,
have you had ever a reincarnation experience?
And what personal revelations have you received, if you want to
I myself had a dream as a child, very early, and I have no
explanation for it. I dreamt something, but from it I knew that this
could not have been me dreaming, because I was so young. I concluded
that this must have dreamt a male person about the age of 35.
I was approx. 5years at that time. I don;t know much about
reincarnation, but certainly I have not forgotten about this dream,
because it was so extraordinary. Do you know what Gnosticism has to
say on reincarnation? I want to break the circle. It's a sad state.
Yesterday, I had a funny revelation: As I was pondering and reciting
in my mind the most fundamental principles of gnosticism, two things
happened. I understood that since the Ego is the psychological counter
[part of the demiurge, it is blind and creating its own world, a
world of mistakes, unreality...Any salvation when it is supposed to
come won't reach us as long as we are in the Ego-state. It came to me
as more of a "gnostic" experience I have to say, not exactly as an
intellectual conclusion at all. But simultaneously, I adopted this
understanding and asked where am I then. And the answer came you are
not even here (where I was standing), you are there, someplace else.
And I felt that only this part of me, never the Ego, could be
reconciled with God. Then, I felt that I was already reconciled with
God. And everything was perfect. Shortly after that while being in
this state of understanding that a part of me unknown not the ego, I
suppressed it, was already "accepted" by a higher being. I felt very
happy. Then I was lifted up, mentally, and I was afraid, so the
feeling left me. I walked home.
