Saint Orange Sunshine Purple Haze

This life is but Shakespearean play and all the lonely people secondary characters of a primary-colored kaleidoscopic dream appearing here and there in universal consciousness.

After the orange sunshine we are sitting on a dock in a psychedelic lake watching an imaginary moon. And the moon imagined fifty years ago is the same moon I am imagining tonight, my lysergic lover.

Suddenly I'm seeing the moon is all my light reflecting in this lake of altered Dominus Vobiscum. God is dead in perfect thought but thought is never born in absolution.

Manifesting need is unknowing what I want. Try it sometime. Another name for self-awareness is love. And absolute god is self-aware. As space-time is my mirror.

Dear Child Consciousness

I was raised a Roman Catholic. The universe is my empire. I’d walk a mile downtown for confession to a priest known for anonymity.

Narcissism is my name. God is what I do. And because Cold Mountain only hurts the one it loves, now I’m a Taoist hermit.

I make exceptions for my family. I worship my granddaughter. She thinks I'm grand enough but no one needs another parent.

Unstoppable social conditioning is meeting immovable self-awareness. They call it the terrible twos. It's the law of three.

The Last Tantric Show

No mind sounds nihilistic but it's not. No mind is being before becoming a belief. No mind is the practice. Being is the nondual expression of the absolute godhead. Smile!

The sun outside is myth. Sun inside is the core of course. And black holes are holistic. Myth is the deconstruction of material superstition. The core is being being.

Belief has nine lives. Being being is this one. Emerging from the source, self-awareness swallows all. No mind is absolute deconstruction of the mind. Being being is absolution.

Talking Tantra

One is taught to eat the world but learns to swallow oneself. And after the world is truly digested, everything is shit but love.

For love is not all you need. Love is all you are. Whereas consciousness eats the world just for the love of itself.

And consciousness loving consciousness is the fuel of self-awareness. All the rest is smoke.

(In order for consciousness to love itself, consciousness forgets itself. This forgetfulness is like a dream world.)

The potentiality of pure awareness being self-aware feels like universal consciousness in play. The only emperor is the emperor of clothes.

Whereas consciousness is the nondual expression of the absolute, verbs equal nouns. Being is the unknown and vice versa.

There's no division but religions of thought, east or west. Love is absolute. I am is that. Physicist heal thyself.





footnotes

Welcome to the self-reflexive world to everyone who enters here. For consciousness sacrifices consciousness in the name of self-awareness. In this way, all is well unless you overthink it. Relax, love survives Venus. 


Memory is a tool of consciousness made for forgetting. According to Munch, consciousness is the sun and the world is the scream. But consciousness is all you know and don’t you forget it. 


For consciousness is nameless and the nameless is god.

Tantric Seventh

As being is the heart, and love the hand, and mind the mirror of self-awareness. Conditioned consciousness is losing heart. As mind is severing that powerful reverse connection.

As trees are always reaching for the sun. One of the magical laws of this self-reflexive universe. All seventh substages require the presence of the next fundamental stage in order to function. As flowers call for bees.

All dreams are paradoxical in this way. As nighttime doesn't essentially exist. Just a shadow thrown by a world of thought. It's always sunrise somewhere. Awareness never sets. It's only called self-awareness. Seven.








footnotes

a wave is only painful seen in a photo

fundamentalist materialism believes the opposite of that which is, completely. isn’t big science the greatest of all religions?

pure awareness, awareness, aware, unawareness, consciousness, self-consciousness, self-awareness

memory contains the world but the universe is not a memory. despite what the stars say. it’s not called universal consciousness for nothing.

one, three, and seven are the only laws. number nine, number nine, number nine.

smell and taste encounters sight and sound, but intuition is like that touch of god in creazione di adamo, d’eva. creation is like crazy!

Scientific Intentional Self-awareness Tantra

To be self-aware, pure awareness gives itself an unawareness. As in wave, particle, atom, molecule. Or light to matter.

Let ego be ego. That is as it is. The outer universe is unawareness. The inner feels like spirit, fire, sun, black hole.

This is known to be the healing of awareness. Intentional self-awareness. Lucid dreaming is the necessary news. Divine imagination.

The god of pure awareness so loves self-awareness, it is giving its child awareness to unawareness so whosoever may disbelieve.

Not this. Material pain is addictive. Don't think about it. Let being be the healing of intentional self-awareness.

the world is well inside

and the buddha deconstructs all roads

Tightrope Tantra

Look all the world is in the past! Creation can't be recognized until being is cognizant of being being. Ah, remembering this intuition.

Lightning strikes before thundersnow. Self-awareness is experiential. In sciences of self-awareness, consciousness is the immaculate conception.

If memory is the hyphen in self-awareness, being being is this tantric way and not the highway of theological sutra or theoretical science.

Consciousness knows consciousness is the ground of matter. Thus it takes a daring mind to be the tool of being.







August Macke



foonotes

being being is like the inner wild west of my frontier thesis

again. mind is the tool of love. love is the hand of being. being is the heart of intentional self-awareness. self-awareness is a feature of the absolute godhead parabrahman tao.

psa. climate change is xtreme dreaming. but the buddha abides.

tantra is to deconstruction as being is to belief as being useless useless being

being unknown is not for true believers 

neither last frontier nor new frontier but further

when will this absurd dream actually wake me up?

one love, two love, who shall be my third love

I Am That 39. By Itself Nothing has Existence.

Questioner: As I listen to you I find that it is useless to ask you questions. Whatever the question, you invariably turn it upon itself and bring me to the basic fact that I am living in an illusion of my own making and that reality is inexpressible in words. Words merely add to the confusion and the only wise course is the silent search within.

Maharaj: After all, it is the mind that creates illusion and it is the mind that gets free of it. Words may aggravate illusion, words may also help dispel it. There is nothing wrong in repeating the same truth again and again until it becomes reality. Mother's work is not over with the birth of the child. She feeds it day after day, year after year until it needs her no longer. People need hearing words, until facts speak to them louder than words.

Q:   So we are children to be fed on words?

M:  As long as you give importance to words, you are children.

Q:   All right, then be our mother.

M:  Where was the child before it was born? Was it not with the mother? Because it was already with the mother it could be born.

Q:   Surely, the mother did not carry the child when she was a child herself.

M:  Potentially, she was the mother. Go beyond the illusion of time.

Q:   Your answer is always the same. A kind of clockwork which strikes the same hours again and again.

M:  It can not be helped. Just like the one sun is reflected in a billion dew drops, so is the timeless endlessly repeated. When l repeat: 'I am, I am', I merely assert and re-assert an ever-present fact. You get tired of my words because you do not see the living truth behind them. Contact it and you will find the full meaning of words and of silence -- both.

Q:   You say that the little girl is already the mother of her future child. Potentially -- yes. Actually -- no.

M:  The potential becomes actual by thinking. The body and its affairs exist in the mind.

Q:   And the mind is consciousness in motion and consciousness is the conditioned (saguna) aspect of the Self. The unconditioned (nirguna) is another aspect and beyond lies the abyss of the absolute (paramartha).

M:  Quite right -- you have put it beautifully.

Q:   But these are mere words to me. Hearing and repeating them is not enough, they must be experienced.

M:  Nothing stops you but preoccupation with the outer which prevents you from focussing the inner. It cannot be helped, you cannot skip your sadhana. You have to turn away from the world and go within, until the inner and the outer merge and you can go beyond the conditioned, whether inner or outer.

Q:   Surely, the unconditioned is merely an idea in the conditioned mind. By itself it has no existence.

M:  By itself nothing has existence. Everything needs its own absence. To be, is to be distinguishable, to be here and not there, to be now and not then, to be thus and not otherwise. Like water is shaped by the container, so is everything determined by conditions (gunas). As water remains water regardless of the vessels, as light remains itself regardless of the colours it brings out, so does the real remain real, regardless of conditions in which it is reflected. Why keep the reflection only in the focus of consciousness? Why not the real itself?

Q:   Consciousness itself is a reflection. How can it hold the real?

M:  To know that consciousness and its content are but reflections, changeful and transient, is the focussing of the real. The refusal to see the snake in the rope is the necessary condition for seeing the rope.

Q:   Only necessary, or also sufficient?

M:  One must also know that a rope exists and looks like a snake. Similarly, one must know that the real exists and is of the nature of witness-consciousness. Of course it is beyond the witness, but to enter it one must first realise the state of pure witnessing. The awareness of conditions brings one to the unconditioned.

Q:   Can the unconditioned be experienced?

M:  To know the conditioned as conditioned is all that can be said about the unconditioned. Positive terms are mere hints and misleading.

Q:   Can we talk of witnessing the real?

M:  How can we? We can talk only of the unreal, the illusory, the transient, the conditioned. To go beyond, we must pass through total negation of everything as having independent existence. All things depend.

Q:   On what do they depend?

M:  On consciousness. And consciousness depends on the witness.

Q:   And the witness depends on the real?

M:  The witness is the reflection of the real in all its purity. It depends on the condition of the mind. Where clarity and detachment predominate, the witness-consciousness comes into being. It is just like saying that where the water is clear and quiet, the image of the moon appears. Or like daylight that appears as sparkle in the diamond.

Q:   Can there be consciousness without the witness?

M:  Without the witness it becomes unconsciousness, just living. The witness is latent in every state of consciousness, just like light in every colour. There can be no knowledge without the knower and no knower without his witness. Not only you know, but you know that you know.

Q:   If the unconditioned cannot be experienced, for all experience is conditioned, then why talk of it at all?

M:  How can there be knowledge of the conditioned without the unconditioned? There must be a source from which all this flows, a foundation on which all stands. Self-realisation is primarily the knowledge of one's conditioning and the awareness that the infinite variety of conditions depends on our infinite ability to be conditioned and to give rise to variety. To the conditioned mind the unconditioned appears as the totality as well as the absence of everything. Neither can be directly experienced, but this does not make it not-existent.

Q:   Is it not a feeling?

M:  A feeling too is a state of mind. Just like a healthy body does not call for attention, so is the unconditioned free from experience. Take the experience of death. The ordinary man is afraid to die, because he is afraid of change. The jnani is not afraid because his mind is dead already. He does not think: 'I live'. He knows: 'There is life'. There is no change in it and no death. Death appears to be a change in time and space. Where there is neither time nor space, how can there be death? The jnani is already dead to name and shape. How can their loss affect him? The man in the train travels from place to place, but the man off the train goes nowhere, for he is not bound for a destination. He has nowhere to go, nothing to do, nothing to become. Those who make plans will be born to carry them out. Those who make no plans need not be born.

Q:   What is the purpose of pain and pleasure?

M:  Do they exist by themselves, or only in the mind?

Q:   Still, they exist. Never mind the mind.

M:  Pain and pleasure are merely symptoms, the results of wrong knowledge and wrong feeling. A result cannot have a purpose of its own.

Q:   In God's economy everything must have a purpose.

M:  Do you know God that you talk of him so freely? What is God to you? A sound, a word on paper, an idea in the mind?

Q:   By his power I am born and kept alive.

M:  And suffer, and die. Are you glad?

Q:   It may be my own fault that I suffer and die. I was created unto life eternal.

M:  Why eternal in the future and not in the past. What has a beginning must have an end. Only the beginningless is endless.

Q:   God may be a mere concept, a working theory. A very useful concept all the same!

M:  For this it must be free of inner contradictions, which is not the case. Why not work on the theory that you are your own creation and creator. At least there will be no external God to battle with.

Q:   This world is so rich and complex -- how could I create it?

M:  Do you know yourself enough to know what you can do and what you cannot? You do not know your own powers. You never investigated. Begin with yourself now.

Q:   Everybody believes in God.

M:  To me you are your own God. But if you think otherwise, think to the end. If there be God, then all is God's and all is for the best. Welcome all that comes with a glad and thankful heart. And love all creatures. This too will take you to your Self.

Tantrasia

Ouroboric body-mind transistorizing consciousness to self-awareness, that is your name. Earth may be your life source but the universe is living within you.

The unknowable whole is breathing out the sun and breathing in a black hole. DNA is atman. Atman is consciousness. Brahman is noumenon. My star is a dragon and its lair a dark cave.

The Golden Tantra

No-thought isn't just no thinking. No-thought sees through thought for what it is. Long lost love.

If no-thought is consciousness and thought is unconsciousness, then consciousness is loving loving.

Some days people never see the sun although the sun is seeing through the people all the time. Self-remember every day.
