Special post for anyone who is researching all my posts

Post by garudha » Fri Dec 11, 2015 3:33 am

I write just for you.

Let' start with a poem to set the tone.

ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
M Y BRAIN IS EXPLODING
AND THAT FACE IS MELTING
MY HEART IS BEATING SO FAST
AND MY WORLD IS SPINNING OUTTA CONTROL
DO YOU KNOW HOW IT FEELS?
NO!
ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
I LIKE YOU STUPID PERSON. LOVE.
ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
ARGGHHHHHHHHHHH
SPEAK 2ME LIKE YOU DO.
TELL ME THE FUTURE.
SO EASY FOR YOU.
LOVELY STUPID PERSON.
I LIKE YOU STUPID PERSON. LOVE.



For the serious researcher;

The question you would want to ask me is this:

"How can you reconcile your supposed transcendent experience with where you're at right now ?"

My reply is as follows:

My transcendent experience is as described, although where I may have proposed that "my" total infinity is the same as the Buddhist "mind"; I now suggest that these two "states" could be total opposites. As I'm not fully enlightened on these matters, in particular "mind", I cannot be sure. However, on the subject of non-duality, I have had some additional experience - which I won't really go into - but I can compare, for you, the non-duality of transcendence vs the non-duality of the non-transcendent (i.e "regular" reality).

non-duality of transcendence:

-experienced outside regular space-time.
-meeting, merging or a type of unity with infinite compassion.

non-duality of the non-transcendent:

-occurs within regular space-time.
-However; the flow of time might be described as static, irrelevant or eternal.
-the unity, is, that the whole of space-time (includes matter) is one.

Note well: the second type of non-duality is the unity of all reality.
whereas: the first type of non-duality is a state where reality does not exist, or exists in a hyper-state, which is totally impossible to describe.

I'm aware there are many other states, in particular, a state of pure mind, a state... Of course it's not for me to talk about that which I don't fully understand so will not, and cannot, talk about these "other" states any more.

I'm also aware that, from the perspective of one of the states I don't fully understand, the unity of all reality might be able to be "transcended" so material reality can be described as "empty".... however; this is not my experience so I state this is differentiate various types of non-duality or "ultimates".

"How can I experience the first kind of non-duality -transcendence?"

I don't know. I think it's not possible. I never wished it to happen. Certainly an inter-stellar journey where mortality is shed must occur. Perhaps angels provide transportation. I don't know for sure.

"How can I experience the second kind of non-duality?"

I think this is basically like being in love. I only experienced this a few times in my life and only for a few moments each time. I suggest freeing yourself from negative feelings and being present in the world. I think it helps if you can get in touch (in your feeling or inner experience) with some type of rapture for/with nature, for example: a waterfall, some trees,... or perhaps a lover(!)

What a load of trash; infinity is a concept but the mind isn't. It goes faaaar beyond so-called "infinity".

What a load of rubbish; angels happen, but it's you yourself who has to take yourself on that inter-stellar journey - they can't do it for you.

What a load of crap; Just rest assure that non-duality is a close encounter of the third grade, not of the second kind - meaning it is not of the second kind in any way, but transcendent knowledge.

That's something private, but go get her now. But you won't find her on this board, because we here are a totally sour and bitchy bunch!

Garudha,

Have you heard about Nyams ? They're experiences that can arise during practice and along the path, ranging from very subtle + gross physical /psychological/emotional changes, all the way up to very 'special' kinds of experience that can be mistaken for a complete realization.

They can be pleasant,unpleasant,neutral and every possible shade between but the point is to not get attached to these experiences because they're just temporary , and more often than not, they serve as distractions more than aids as soon as you fixate upon them too intensely.

I'm sure you know that the real sign of having realized the teachings, is not soley fantastic experiences but a real and noticeable decrease in the afflictive emotions that you experience and how you relate with them. + how well you're able to apply increasingly diverse skillfull means in helping with the suffering you see in the world and beings.

Even soaring eagles take time out of flight to rest and care for their wings, so find a nice spot and watch the sky from a fixed-place.
"The changing cycle of joy and sorrow, like the changing seasons –
As a time of suffering will surely come around to me,
May I truly practice the sublime teachings."
- Dudjom Rinpoche

All sorts of experiences can happen, some can be mindblowing and amazing. He'l get over it eventually. :anjali:

Not so much. And its not you, its me. Just not liberated enough to be into dudes.
I suppose I love the idea of Garuda. Not the reality so much.

If I could erase all your memories then maybe you'd like me, but *who* would you be, if you weren't you? ...and a blank human being is what, or whom ?

To accept one's own imperfection is something off the wall.

...and in this acceptance; if "non-duality" has a basis in "truth", then when we accept our own imperfection; do we also accept others imperfection?

Well I'd be me. Just not me. Who would you be?

The opposite of "only memories remain"... I guess.
