Self-Awareness in Spacetime

Self-awareness not only implies unawareness

but the temporary nature of this unawareness.

As if there is samsara

but one comes to nirvana through maya.

Like samsara is the space and maya is the time.

Like not only is atman brahman,

atman was never not brahman

and brahman is never atman.

Dances with Atman


There’s nobody but myself.

This is true for you too.


The cosmic egg cracks and there’s a mouth.

The mouth speaks and there’s atomic fire.


Nobody knows the samsara I have seen.

All myth revolves around yourself.


All words are my words, it doesn’t matter what you say.

I give them definition.


That’s why everyone is pointing at the full wolf moon.

End science.

Beginninglessness


The beginningless is brahman.

In the beginning was atman, the self,

and it’s world of self-awareness.


In the beginningless, there is no beginning.

In the beginning was maya.

Right here, right now, atman is brahman.

Nonduality


All appears in consciousness unless you think about it.

Consciousness minus thought equals absolute awareness.

In other words, prajnanam brahma.


Consciousness is primordial knowledge.

Thought is the stuff of dreams.

Belief is original sin.


Look, between self and self-awareness is a dream

because there is no difference between self and self-awareness.

Call this nonduality.











Mahavakyas 2: Prajnanam Brahma

Prajnanam Brahma (प्रज्ञानम् ब्रह्म) - "Consciousness is Brahman" (Aitareya Upanishad 3.3 of the Rig Veda)


This One is (the inferior) Brahman; this is Indra, this is Prajapati; this is all these gods; and this is these five elements, viz earth, air, space, water, fire; and this is all these (big creatures), together with the small ones, that are the procreators of others and referable in pairs to wit, those that are born of eggs, of wombs, of moisture, of the earth, viz horses, cattle, men, elephants, and all the creatures that there are which move or fly and those which do not move. All these have Consciousness as the giver of their reality; all these are impelled by Consciousness; the universe has Consciousness as its eye, and Consciousness is its end. Consciousness is Brahman.

(tr-Gambhirananda)


eṣa brahmaiṣa indra eṣa prajāpatir-ete sarve devā 

imāni ca pañca mahābhūtāni pṛthivī vāyur-ākāśa āpo

jyotīṁśītyetānīmāni ca kṣudra-miśrāṇīva 

bījānītarāṇi cetarāṇi cāṇdajāni ca

yacca sthāvaraṁ sarvaṁ tat-prajñānetram, 

prajñāne pratiṣṭhitaṁ prajnānetro

lokaḥ prajñā pratiṣṭhā prajñānaṁ brahma.











Mahavakyas 1: Aham Brahmāsmi

Aham Brahmāsmi (अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि) – “I am Brahman” (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.10 of the Yajur Veda):

This [self] was indeed Brahman in the beginning. It knew itself only as “I am Brahman.” Therefore it became all. And whoever among the gods had this enlightenment, also became That [Brahman]. It is the same with the seers (rishis), the same with men. The seer Vamadeva, having realized this [self] as That, came to know: "I was Manu and the sun." And to this day, whoever in a like manner knows the self as "I am Brahman," becomes all this [universe]. Even the gods cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self.

(tr-Nikhilananda)

Talking Nondual Talking

Deconstruction only removes the ingredients. Silence cooks it.

Besides deconstructing the world, there’s pointing to the moon.

And the difference between pointers and paradox is the dark side of the moon.

Then there’s the mahavakyas: Tat Tvam Asi; Aham Brahmāsmi; Prajnanam Brahma; Ayam Atma Brahma.

While the fool points to the moon, the wise man looks at the dark side of the moon.

Epistle to the Mayanths


i.

Absolute awareness is timelessly self-aware.

A reflexive universe of evolutionary space-time is this self-awareness made manifest.

Manifestation is that process of self-awareness divided into those fractions with the largest denominator possible—

we ones divided by maya.


ii.

Look,

the mind is an integral element within this process of self-awareness until it's not.

So don't go prematurely losing it to some beautiful belief—

even nonduality.


iii.

Although self-realization is a done deal

(timelessly beginningless

(as is maya, coincidentally)),

self-awareness paradoxically necessitates

full cooperation of the mind

("clear eyes, full heart, can't lose"),

including its negative capabilities

and tendencies toward kensho.

2022 Https for Blogger Blogspot Blog - with Custom Domain needing CAA Record for Let's Encrypt - in DNS Updater of namesilo Domain Manager and Others

I couldn't find instructions for this on one nice page, so I'm making this one. This might not be the only way to do it but it is a way that worked. I'm listing the pages that worked for me as a thanks to them.


First I had set up the A record in the DNS as namesilo suggested. But I then changed to the actual Google IP numbers as found on this page: 

https://seoneurons.com/blogger/setup-custom-domain-name/

This may be overkill. But it was part of my complete process so I include it here. Remember, the CNAME records come from Blogger when you set up the custom domain there. When obtained, enter them in to DNS Updater.


Second, I generated CAA records using this site, clicking Google and Let's Encrypt as the Authorized Certificate Authorities (step 3 on page) 

https://sslmate.com/caa/

This site was a huge find for me!


and entered them as CAA's in the DNS Updater on the Domain Manager as illustrated here (for Google Domains but basically the same for namesilo as well).

https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-add-a-certificate-authority-authorization-record-in-google-domains/


Notes: 

The Https Availability in Blogger Settings does not work until the CAA for Let's Encrypt is added to the DNS Updater in the Domain Manager (the Google CAA is probably overkill, but again, it was part of the scheme that worked).

The Https Redirect was the last thing to work. Turn it on, try it, and if not working, turn it off, until it does work.


Yeow!

M-4

Another name for space-time is Maya.

This universe of universal consciousness, named the lord god,

Isvara, equals the absolute conditioned by Maya.

This method called Advaita is creation myth at heart.

The individual is universal consciousness conditioned by more Maya.

Based on the data from the body which has been confirmed by empires for ages,

what the mind thinks to be reality is not what consciousness knows.

This central disconnect is the essential backdrop behind

all paradox from zeno to zen and all of maya.

Meditation Three


Belief is all about thought. Myth is more about experience.

Myth looks at the moon while religion looks at the myth.

But religion is to myth as myth is to paradox; all roads lead to Nome.

Belief is to symptoms as the myth of nonduality is to the disease.

Like e=mc², maya equals three states of consciousness 

by five superimpositions by seven stages of self-awareness.

Please note three states, five superimpositions, and seven stages equal 

the waking dream, dreaming sleep, deep sleep; outer, inner, thinker, doer, lover;

potential, substance, form, combination, organization, mobility, dominion.

Meditating Two

While zen has countless koans,

advaita has this one of Maya.

Because the unmanifest absolute is

by definition unchanging,

Maya is the main myth used

to illustrate a paradoxical

universe of phenomenal change.

Meditation Number One

If awareness equals consciousness minus Maya,

then the original sin is the concept of consciousness itself, I am;

meditate on a concept long enough and suddenly it disappears

into the pure potentiality that is consciousness, n'est-ce pas?
