Re: ThaThaThaThat's All Folks or is it?
- Yes, the process of moving
closer to Reality may be seen
as passing through 70,000
veils, or the layers of an onion
(I don't know why that one is
used so much...maybe somthing
about tears (ü)....
After 69,999 (veils or an
exceptionally dense onion)
comes the final layer, the
and ThaThaThaThat's All Folks.
Reality is perceived, experienced,
understood as IT, IS, Source.,
God, Perfect Peace of Mind,
The complete and total clarity
of the unified Reality.
There is a romantic notion,
however, that Total Clarity,
Realization....is not possible
for the human. In virtually all
of the consciousness traditions
and spiritual models, there is
a favorable and respected view
of the "aspirant", the one on
her way, the one who is peeling
his onion faithfully...
But those who report such
an event as making it or
being guided past
all 70,000 veils, layers,
illusions, as an experiential
Understanding of Reality
will hear from angry
"fundamentalists" (of many
stripes) that we mortals
cannot fathom the entire
Reality (God, Universe...).
Yet, The Masters say they have
and the earnest aspirant can.
