      The origin of things is not situated in any place or moment of past time; it is produced now, at each instant, in our minds. At every moment the subjective image which is the world, arises in our mind only to sink back and dissolve in it the moment after, like the ‘waves which arise from the sea and fall back into it.

      The sense of an array of things( which is really the sense of a meaning to the thing)…..including the body-mind thing held to be oneself……the sense of a subjective image, which is the world…
      ….is not produced in our minds.
       
      The sense of an array of things, the sense of a subjective image, which is the world…
       
      ..is the very sense of a mind.

      “Not in the dim past but continuously by conscious mind is the miracle of creation wrought.”
       - An expressing through the object named Arthur Eddington(famous in the field of Science)-------
       
      An amplification of what needs no amplifying…
       
      …it is not that the conscious/unconscious/subconscious mind……produces things as the miracle of creation wrought.
       
        
      It is like the crystal…..the precise angles of all the planes of the crystal……which effects the passing Light and a seeming rainbow of colors as this array of the perceived world, of multiple Universes get produced.
      The  effect so produced does not in any way affect the Light.
       
         
      And the crystal itself is the very Light….. appearing to be manifested as the particular crystal …., and then  appearing to get scattered and thus the appearance of the dancing phantasmagoria.
       
       
      And for the dancing phantasmagoria to be of infinite variety…
       
        
      ..the infinite variety of uniquely crafted crystals.
        
      And to “thicken the plot of the story”……the acute enticing quality of the variety……...such that there is a sense of investment, thus the sense of self identity.
        
      Clarity is instantaneous of the entirety…
      …not  some partial understanding out of some  epiphanic experience held to be deeply profound…
       
      ..which is then held that it will need to deepen, mature, stabilize in time.
       
      Clarity is never in and of time.
       
      Neither is it in and of the timeless.
       
      Memory can never search…….as thought can never touch……..this.

      The Great Liberation
      “…The well-informed dreamer may cease taking pleasure in dreaming. He may stop imitating those dreamers who, enjoying the phantasmagoria which they watch and in which they play a part, persist in wishing to remain asleep.
      In truth, why do the dreamers fear awakening, why do they imagine in advance other dreams of hells and heavens which await them after death? It is because they fear that with the disappearance of the ‘images seen in dreams’, the illusory ‘Ego’ which is an integral part of them will disappear. They have not yet perceived that the real face of this chimerical ‘Ego’ is the face of Death. As long as the idea of this impermanent Ego lasts, this simple mass of elements which various causes have brought together and which other causes will separate, the idea of death also subsists.
      The Teaching alludes to the disappearance of this phantom from the field of our mental activity when it refers to whom ‘death does not see’, that is, he for whom death does not exist.

      Yes.
       
      And the “he” for whom death does not exist……is not referring to the biological body –mind object, having the attribute of sentience,……. or to the sense of a person…. with a sense of inhabiting a particular object.
       
      For the  biological body –mind object, having the attribute of sentience, being a durational appearance…..will disappear, whether that duration is  70 years or 700 years…  of what import.

      There are moments when one feels free from one’s own identification with human limitations and inadequacies. At such moments one imagines that one stands on some spot of a small planet, gazing in amazement at the cold yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable; life and death flow into one, and there is neither evolution nor destiny; only Being.
      - An expressing through the object named Albert Einstein
       
      ---------------------------
      Subtle, sparkling, dazzling, glorious, and radiantly awesome, in appearance like a mirage moving across a landscape in spring-time in one continuous stream of vibrations…
      That is the radiance of thine own true nature.

      -An expressing through the object named Bardo Thodol
