Divine And Human

00411

How is it that the Divine, not to mention the universe, as well as, ourselves, remains an eternal mystery to the human material condition or literal mind? And once realizing, as science already has, that the literal mind is partial, which is to say, being not all there (not Whole Consciousness), and projects its own preconceptions onto thing-events, is not the problem, then, but a holding onto, and identifying with, a literal interpretation of the Divine, the universe and ourselves?

When one views the actual world with the eyes and intellect alone, one remains literal-minded, being caught up in the quality of a secondary and thus suppressed consciousness (ego). And, in so following an outside course, also experiences and interprets literally whatever is seen and thought, as that is where the mind remains centered…centered in the image, form, concept (thing-event) as an end in itself. Therefore, remaining literally stuck and complacent, one fails to penetrate beyond the object in space or subject in mind, not to mention, the actuality of cause and effect or lines of continuity. And when one identifies with, or seeks security in, what is seen and thought outside (sensory perception), not only is a false absolute created to whatever is experienced but one remains blocked off (blacked out) to the infinite Stream of Energy-Consciousness and understanding Awareness that is one’s innermost Being and Source (Intuconscious Center). What here is called the Divine, the primary (but Nonliteral) Universe and Ourself as a Whole.

Yet, are We not already (and always have been) as a Whole Consciousness, the Buddha, the Christ, Krishna, or whatever Name for this that one prefers? The mystery seems to entail being both Divine and human…and at the same time. But how is this possible? Certainly not with a literal interpretation, which perceives all thing-events as relative, partial and temporal, not united, but remaining separate and outside each other, in fact, being neither solid nor absolute, as remains the case with sensory perception. And how can a human (ego) be the Divine (Nonego) literally, when the Divine transcends the human material condition or literal mind? Thus one lives in a divided world (mind) and split-consciousness.

So why interpret the Divine, the universe and ourselves literally? The world outside, including all our thoughts, emotions and personal experiences, may be actual, and indeed is, but they are not real, if by reality we mean that which just Is…Is the Totality of Being itself…Intubeing without beginning or ending, birth or death, past or future, remaining Whole, Complete, Absolute in itself. It is as if the world outside is a passing show, thing-events flashing on the screen of one’s mind (soul) like scenes in a movie or a dream, or as the Hindu sage says, life on earth is a game of hide and seek. The idea being to selflessly Realize and Live (Be) the Whole (the Divine) resting behind (through) all the parts, including our person (ego). But to literally believe that the person or the world outside can be the Divine (God) would be to some a blasphemy, not to mention, a dangerous form of insanity.

So, the Divine may be likened to the Tree of Life, and, subsequently, since there is only One Tree, One Spirit, One Soul, One Intelligence eternally Now, the Divine is producing or incarnating from Within itself the cosmic trunk, and all the branches, leaves and fruit manifested, but remains hidden from a literal view, and any attachment to sensory perception. Thus all the parts created, and the creation, that is, the one we experience literally with the senses as the actual, material universe, comes not into the world, but out of it, out of itself, thereby remaining incomplete (relative/partial/temporal). And when the old forms (masks) fall away, the Divine is reproducing or reincarnating, so to speak, new ones to replenish the outward design. But the Divine does not do so literally, not from outside creation but from Within itself, remaining Nonliteral…having no past or future, no cause and effect or outward line of continuity. Divinity Is Being the very Creating, Doing, Producing or Incarnating itself, as there is no duality nonliterally speaking, only Oneness (Whole Consciousness), only Now.

Thus the passing show is at best an analogy of life…but not Life itself or in itself: that is to say, a cosmic context (maya/creative illusion) through which we may, by surrendering our secondary consciousness and its literal interpretation, come to understand and just (first) Be our true Self (Awareness), which Is Selfless, never making a personal claim on any of the parts. By living an attitude (life) of nonattachment and holy indifference, then, the actual, literal world in ourselves may be totally embraced and consumed (transcended), thus uniting as a Nonliteral-literal Continuum (literal and Nonliteral Being ultimately the Same Wholeness), even as we Are already, and always have been, One selfless Realization and understanding Awareness that remains Ourself as a Whole (God).

All the religions of the world may be One yet are expressed through different contexts, having to do with cultural development. So, when will humanity finally see (live) through the literal perspective still conceived by our eyes and intellect alone, and selflessly Realize Ourself as the Nonliteral Perspective, resolving the mystery? The answer: when we have exhausted the alternatives: all those notions (metaphors) we still hold onto and identify with as being reality, thereby suppressing our own consciousness, and are finally ready and willing to face the open, natural and spontaneous Reality that We Are the Divine-human, Nonliteral-literal Continuum. For Such is not a concept or personal belief, but a Living Reality. Enough said.

 

To Know Is To Be The Knowing

To know is to Be the Knowing, not just the thinking; to do is to Be the Doing, not just the manipulating; to live is to Be the Living, not just the feeling. Therefore, there is no knower, doer or life apart from the Totality of Being, that is, apart from the Intubeing or Whole Consciousness itself or in itself, whose Center is everywhere (nonliterally speaking) and circumference nowhere (literally speaking).  Thus if one is not totally Being through whatever (thing-event), the Whole is not happening, such experience or awareness remaining partial, still only an image, form, concept (maya or creative illusion).

The actual world outside or literal perspective (duality/sensory perception/ego) can be likened to a dark tunnel or passageway (psyche): when the soul or mind is seeing (knowing/doing/living) through the literal perspective in itself, one Is the selfless Realization or Nonliteral Perspective (Oneness/Nonsensory Perception/Nonego), that is, the true Self, as the literal and the Nonliteral Are the same Reality or Whole Consciousness (Totality of Being). Thus it can be said, “on earth as it is in heaven”.

When one is completely willing or ready to embrace the Whole through whatever, trusting forever in the Now or ever-present, without thinking or desiring to, forgets (and thus allows) the person to recede, the soul, no longer suffering a split-consciousness or divided mind, Now Being the Whole (Awareness) itself or in itself, as everything is One, comes Alive as an infinite Stream of Energy-Consciousness (God). The actual world has become like a passing show or, perhaps, like a dream: everything seemingly transparent, the Self, just Being through the thing-events, All there Is (the Knowing, Doing, Living itself). Thus it can be said that the actual world or literal perspective comes out of the Nonliteral Perspective, has its time, and then returns Intuself (Intubeing/Intuconsciousness/Intulife).

But how does one put Wholeness (Intubeing/Nonego) as Such, into words, which are only concepts (partial), and be understood? Concepts are not realities, only metaphors at best: they point to it but are not it. In Reality, there is no it; all that Is…Being the Knowing, Doing, Living itself or in itself. The difficulty here is literal interpretation. When one interprets something literally, one is bound to a partial view (experience/sensory perception) and remains brain-based, not Being-based. Thus it is said in The Heart Speaks, “change the way you see and you will change what you see, thus transforming yourself”. Allow yourself to See, that is to say, to selflessly Realize with your innermost Being, thereby dropping the image, form, concept that you think is your (separate) self, and you will just (first) Be…Being the pure Consciousness, Spirit, Intelligence (understanding Awareness) that Is.

We Are and everything Is God, that is, Being God: God not as a supernatural entity or creator in the literal, actual sense, not influencing the world from outside, but the Creating itself or in itself, influencing the world from Within, Being without beginning or ending, without the cycle of birth and death. God Is the infinite Stream of Energy-Consciousness (Nonliteral Perspective/Nonthingness) Knowing, Doing, Living (Being) itself through (Within) all thing-events. Such is our true Self, which Is Selfless…our true Form, which Is Formless (literally speaking). Words are therefore used to suggest that which cannot be put into words but must be Living Reality, as to know is to Be the Knowing itself or in itself.

Be the Knowing itself or Living Reality and there is no need for a secondary consciousness (ego) to tell us that we know…that We Are the Knowing. All personal thoughts, feelings and experiences (opinions/beliefs/doubts/fears/desires/guilt), being relative, partial and temporal, are sensory perceptions having no lasting center or solid core, and therefore are maya (creative illusion) in relation to our true Self, who is never partial.  Thus the human condition as such, is the victim and the victimizer, the game we play on ourselves. See through the human condition (literal perspective) in yourself and BE Free! Such Is the Nonliteral Perspective…
