The Pyramid Of Awareness
At each level of consciousness, we don’t recognise whatever is above or beyond until we have a conflict with where we are now, when we experience the suffering of dissatisfaction, which is the first noble truth.
If something from above is said to someone below at the wrong time, they neither hear it nor recognise it. This is how teachings are self-secret, and it is for this reason that we might go a lecture and fall asleep! Been there, done that 😀
It’s possible that someone with knowledge from above will try to lord it over someone at a lower level; lacking compassion, they are on a different pyramid. It’s only when we take a teaching to heart – experience it for ourselves – that it makes sense, otherwise it just seems ‘boring’ (in a can’t-understand way). As long as we stay bored, we will look for something easier and more ‘interesting’ that we can do for years, decades, a life time…
We may want ‘special, secret teachings’, but these only come about when we are truly dissatisfied and disappointed. The truth is that the higher we go, the more transparent things appear, as everything – including self – is just a temporary event, and inherently empty of reality.
Secrets are not kept from us.
Mysteries are for those who are mystified!
We’ve all heard of the pyramid of the-all-seeing-eye; this pyramid of control has its opposite of all-seeing pure consciousness of freedom.
It’s best to know which pyramid we are climbing.
The knowledge is the same in both,
but one culminates in the wisdom of emptiness
while the other ends in tears.
The controlling pyramid is a mind virus.
The pure consciousness pyramid is the healer.
