Immortality and Rebirth/Reincarnation

18 May 2019 On this very auspicious Vesak Day the subject of Immortality and Rebirth/Reincarnation turns up. Nisargadatta: The memory of the past unfulfilled desires traps energy, which manifests itself as a person. When its charge gets exhausted, the person dies. Unfulfilled desires are carried over into the next birth. Self-identification with the body creates…

The Dao, spoken, spoils it?

An unexpected conversation started/continue from this post: https://priortoconsciousness.wordpress.com/2019/05/05/when-even-i-am-goes-reality-alone-is/?fbclid=IwAR38ag59O93MMk0JRrKXdg_Oz8Jj-udStgahsyuPmlc1auQrIzSTGTUxGtI A B Ok so beyond boundless consciousness is no consciousness Mauna Sam Lau Thanks for saying it but also too bad that it is said … M D Mauna Sam Lau why is it ‘too bad’ that it (or any thing) is said? Aren’t you dreaming you’re a dreamer dreaming you’re…

“ … When even ‘I am’ goes, reality alone is …”

Came across this before but this time around the impact is even deeper … King Janaka once dreamt that he was a beggar. On waking up he asked his Guru — Vasishta: Am I a king dreaming of being a beggar, or a beggar dreaming of being a king? The Guru answered: You are neither, you…

That principle is even before witnessing begins …

#46. The Witnessing principle ever prevails ~ Nisargadatta – I am the unborn 31st January 1980 Maharaj: Just try to be in that ‘I amness’ don’t try to put effort and concentration. Visitor: Just be, or just be in ‘I amness’? Nisargadatta:  When ‘you are’ it is ‘I amness’, when ‘you are’ the beingness is…

Living from within a simulation of duality

1st Jan 2019 Living from within a simulation of duality The simulation of duality is being appreciated from within itself where on the one hand or face of the coin of duality is the witnessed and the other face is the witnessing. The witnessed can include the signals of thinking that inspires the BodyMind into action….

So the joke is on the joker

29th Dec 2018 Desires control the elements compelling them to activate accordingly. This means the player is controlled by the desires at a surface level of playing. But at a more matured level of playing, the player can see through the fallacy of desiring thereby the possibility of completely negating the effects thus the potency of the…

Is it possible to laugh at beingness?

Is it possible to laugh at beingness? That irressitable love to be which is possible for the expression of stillness into sat-chit-ananda and nama-rupa? What Nisargadatta say is the root-maya, the root-cause of problems? Yet 道法自然 meaning it’s part of the nature of the authentic being to be originally unmanifest but likes to manifest – 应无所住而生其心。无中生有。独立不改却周行不殆。本自清静却能生万物。 On…

Even this birth is false.

1 May 2019 FB postings “The flow of what is, is not disturbed by the personal idea that things should be another way.” ~Jac O’Keeffe KJ … and so ‘what is’ is also a flow … “There is no one to give, no one to receive—just movements taking place in form.Settle in the freedom of understanding that…

The unchanging doesn’t mind.

9 Oct 2018 – The unchanging doesn’t mind. A new observation occurs today to separate true nature from the passing show; the unchanging from the constantly changing. While the constantly changing can’t help but to experience the changing with anticipation of pleasure and pain, the unchanging doesn’t need to get involved with the narrative of…

Morning Walk

25 Sep 2019 Morning walk 五蕴皆空- 空借着五蕴表达自己。色即是空。静在舞,空在色。观者明,为者迷。无’为者’ – ‘为者’也是色。是’无’在借着有,来显露出‘本来真面目’。幻相中把真(相)带出来。可是’真人不露相‘哦! 发觉身心没法不动。‘无心’状态得随缘。五蕴本来就是动态。在空中生灭。空看似‘不生不灭’。却本身也出没无常。阴阳一体。太极(心)还先于/根本于阴阳。来自太上(无极)。无极才是本来面目。五蕴的运转好像真实,抢眼,占据注意力。其实是幻相如梦。过眼云烟。 身不由己,却(观照到)身心不是真己。不是真己却不能摆脱它的出没运转。独立不改,周行不殆。本不生灭却能生万物。本不动摇却能生其心。‘应无所住而生其心’。 是乐还是悲,或者都不是?只是幻。如梦一场,看戏而已。 能那么潇洒洒脱吗?逍遥游?笑傲是非矛盾红尘?有吗?还是无而已?无,说了就糟糕了?道了就非’常道’了。 麻烦吗?是必经之路。’我’不入地狱,谁入地狱。‘我 ‘就是地狱了。要解脱必须经过 ‘我 ‘的领域。 虽然表面上有烦恼。官司纠纷好像无奈却身不由己。情节所逼。无所谓‘我为’。是无在为。我在观而已。情节的运转不可思议。谁能说定局?‘与世无争’却‘身不由己’,随遇而安;随安而遇。观世音‘者’不生不灭;没事。真人不露相却不能不‘借相’,来回归本性。最后一世。~ KJ

The paradox of nothingness

无银の三百両 无の矛盾 The paradox of nothingness – This can be the alternative name of the DaoDeJing道德经. Of course LaoZi 老子would still say the Dao that is said is not longer the Original Dao道可道非常道. Yet saying it has a divinely ingenious way of delivering the ‘message’ that can’t be about the message itself but the silent…
