Clear Imitation – Confused Imitation
We have a choice of two paths in life: one is to follow organised confusion, and the other is to realise our original wisdom. We know what organised confusion is like as we live in it ;D, but what is the path back to original wisdom?
For thousands of years, humans have sought the truth about their origin. Some look to science for an answer, while some look to God. Others look at what it is that is looking at science and God, which is consciousness itself. Is there a relationship – an interdependence – that links all views together?
What if Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and all their variations have a connection to the Vedic tradition of India? And what if that Vedic tradition had its roots in the pre-historic Aryan view of perfection, originating in the Iranian/Persian area, north-west of India? These teachings were called Sanatana Dharma, which means ‘universal’ or ‘limitless principal/law/duty’. Eternal order.
Everything arises from causes and conditions, within universal pure consciousness that has no cause and no end. Universal laws are a manifestation, not the source. It is worshipping the source that causes confusion as it becomes partisan and separates consciousness from its reality, creating a duality.
If we were to put all those ancient texts together,
they merely say,
“We are what we seek. We are pure consciousness”.
We are Dzogchen/Mahamudra/Atiyoga//Brahma/God/Sanatana/Universal Principal …
Deep within all sentient beings is the profound intuition that we are timeless, limitless beings. The real thing. If we stop along the way in order to belong, we delay arriving at where we are destined; the realisation of non-dual awareness.
What is this limitless universal law? It is the law of three, and different traditions describe these in their own ways. Here is the Tibetan view (from the Sanskrit) of the three Kayas, our primordial nature:
Dharmakaya = emptiness.
Sambhogakaya = consciousness.
Nirmankaya = compassionate manifestation.
Pure consciousness is our essence and nature:
as a unity, these manifest as compassion.
When ignored, however, these laws manifest as three negative emotions of desire, aversion and indifference that disturb our mind. In nature, these correspond to attraction, repulsion and inertia – or fight, flight and freeze. These principles affect the choice as to which path we traverse.
Once the three Kayas are realised, when negative emotions arise they spontaneously appear as the Kayas. This is the wisdom aspect – the unity of non-duality. Never feel guilty about having emotions: it is the primary recognition of emotion that is wisdom. It is a lighting up of seeing without attachment, and the stronger the emotion, the stronger the wisdom.
Perfection is the pure insight of consciousness.
It has nothing to do with words.Words create an ‘I’ of confusion and ideologies.
Does the following make sense?
The Father is Emptiness.
The Son is ordinary, sentient consciousness.
When I and my father are one, that is non-duality.
The Holy Ghost is the unity of the two,
which is compassionate atmosphere.
