Does History Repeat Itself?

3192892897_4f34d44fa6_m

It’s not history as such that repeats itself but human nature.

 Human beings are patterns of behavior…and when patterns are reinforced, as in cultural conditioning, they are firmly established, even collectively. Based on past experience, then, the character of those patterns is predetermined by the way in which we see ourselves, and so live our lives. Thus it is that every generation needs to discover “just what those patterns are” for themselves, and either change the way in which they see or repeat the status quo and eventually regress. Mankind tends to opt for the second choice (it’s easier to be led than to find your own way) and thus civilizations rise and fall. You would think we would catch on after a while–but the spirit (or is it flesh?) of self-examination is weak.

Why Are We As Humans Self-Destructive?

2556296050035811012bqcust_ph

In short, because most of us, in identifying with the material body and personality as ourself,  remain self-centered, contained and thus dominated by our own life’s energy–and with the literal perspective that comes with it (maya). Thus we are a tyrant first unto ourselves, then unto others, as one projects outwardly what’s already going on inside; or, in taking the reverse course, we allow others to tyrannize us even as we victimize ourself from within, most probably out of a sense of guilt, as we see ourselves, and the world around us, as being less than divine.  From there the pattern of our behavior is set, and being reinforced over the years, becomes our basic character.

However, our true self is selfless, the Totality of Being (Nonliteral Perspective); yet, as human beings (conceptualized consciousness), we are born as partialities (personalities), cut off from Total (understanding) Awareness (Intuself). This split in consciousness or division in mind is what was originally meant by the phrase “original sin”, for having forgotten, with the “plunge into the senses”, Who and what we really Are, in our ignorance (self-consciousness) have spun (projected) a pretender (ego) as ourself who, in believing his will comes first (false absolute)–must eventually come undone–as anything that has a beginning must have an ending.

The gospel story in the Bible is about a man who devotes his life on earth to confronting, penetrating, understanding and resolving the contraries of his ego (satan) existence through every activity of the day (living meditation/religion/faith/life/God). It’s called the Way of the cross: the psychological process by which we transmute the living energy that we are from literal to nonliteral, from material to spiritual, from personal to intupersonal. This is why we are here: to make ourselves Whole (One) again.

Does A Great Stifling Force Drive The Madness (Self-Destructiveness) Of The Masses?

Yes, it’s called the human personality/ego-satan, the only enemy any of us will ever know (or will never know). That is to say, most of us haven’t examined ourself to any depth in order to see through and understand the secondary motives and drives behind our aggressive, and often self-victimizing, personalities (our conceptualized or split-consciousness).

So, remaining cut off from the Peace that comes with Whole Consciousness (Nonego), we spend our time on this planet in a “rush”, programed by culture (which has to make a profit on everything) to spin our lives away rationalizing, justifying and, if possible, legalizing our escapist behavior. Thus, literally living in a state of denial, we shun the basic Intelligence (Spirit) that we really Are. If this this isn’t (perpetual) madness…I don’t know what is.

Living Jesus

43167_wallpaper4001

Whatever you do…
do it as a means of loving,
living meditation/prayer/faith/religion/God;
for the Principal of Life
is living whatever in ourself as a Whole.

Just Be
thru whatever you do,
remaining nonattached to the subject matter,
to the other;
thus fulfilling the Principal of Life
thru a psychological death,
thru your own existence on earth.

I call this living Jesus,
the Way of the cross.

Sitting And Reflecting

2203437370052197924phykri_ph

Sitting and reflecting,
writing and meditating,
I breathe the space
and the space breathes me;
I am in the light
and the light is in me.

Like the tide coming in from the sea,
putting pen to paper and my pride to bear,
I sit so still yet move soul-free,
as this Streaming Consciousness Within me,
like nonparticle-waves of living meditation,
washes ashore
onto the beach of my inward concentration:
insights galore that offer themselves,
like cryptic seashells,
to this other me who sits and reflects
and absorbs these precious light-filled moments.

What Is Our True Higher Self?

00411

Higher is a relative term. Our true Self is selfless (Spirit), without attachment to or conflict with any subject matter. Such, then, is neither higher or lower but just Is…Is our innermost Being, the Totality of Being (Intubeing)–and not another concept, image or thing-event (subject matter). Therefore we are not the personality or ego, that partiality of being which is centered in the body, in the past, in the thing, in the concept (duality/sensory perception), but the pure (Nonsensory) Intelligence who,  remaining Complete in Ourself as a Whole or Spirit-Matter Continuum (unified Field), nevertheless gives rise to the phenomena of separate points (images/forms) in space and mind (maya), like reflections/projections in a universal mirror.

So, if we only experience spirit and matter separately as two different concepts or thing-events (literal perspective), then we can never know (live) ourself as that Continuum (Oneness/Wholeness). Yet once we cease holding onto, and identifying with, the personality as an end in itself or false absolute (self), we automatically see (live) through the ego (subject self) and know Who and what we really Are (Nonego), as the Center (Ground) of our Awareness Is the Awareness in itself, in Ourself as a Whole.

Such Is Liberation or the Kingdom of God (Nonliteral Persepective), as we Are Living (Christ) Jesus/Buddha/Krishna/the Tao and Principal of Life (the Word)…our true Self (Selfless)!

What’s The Difference Between Soul And Spirit?

Spirit Is the basic, pure Intelligence Within and behind everything that is: the essential Quality or Nonessentiality, as it were, for the Totality of Being Is always Nonliteral (without form/unstructured to the literal mind) in relation to the partiality of being or literal mind who, being centered in his own form and body, with its self-image and personality–remains outside the pure Intelligence/Spirit that We Are.

Soul is the primal seed (archetype) of each aspect (form/pattern) of the Whole, and when being at one or identifying with the Whole (selfless), also remains nonliteral–the Totality (uncarved Block) Intubeing the Center (Ground) of Awareness–not the soul. Such is a paradox to the literal mind (ego).

Thus, as there is no mind apart from thought, there is no soul apart from spirit, everything has a soul (wave pattern) or primary link to the Andro-Cosmic Mind/pure Intelligence, conceptually speaking. But most souls either don’t have the capacity or simply fail to realize their own inmost spirit (daemon) and true identity–let alone Intusee beyond any personal thought (Seeing in itself or Totality of Perception) that all Are One (Whole) Spirit or God, nonconceptually speaking.
