Lead me from dreaming to waking.Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain.. ...inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!
In silence there must be movement, and in motion,
There must be silence. A small movement is better than a big one.. No movement is better than a small one..listen! Silence is all the movement's mother.. In Movement you should be like a dragon or a tiger. In non Movement you should be like a Buddha. -- Wang Xiangzhai(November 26, 1885 - July 12, 1963}What is referred to as mindlessness is absence of the human mentality; what is referred to as mindfulness is mindfulness of the Tao. When one is free of the human mentality, the mutual sensing of the earthly and celestial is swift; when one is mindful of the Tao, effective practice endures. Swiftness of sensing comes about spontaneously, without cultivation, without striving; long perseverance comes about through effort, and involves action and striving. Striving and non-striving each has its secret; the distinction is all a matter of the absence of the human mentality and the presence of mindfulness of the Tao. After one has reached complete realization of the universal Tao, neither existence nor nonexistence remain; others and self are ultimately empty, and one enters the state of ultimate truthfulness, like a spirit. Here, it is not only the human mentality that cannot be applied; even the mindfulness of Tao is not applicable." - Liu I-ming The Conduct of the Moon and Clouds
The consistent conduct of people of the Way is like the flowing clouds with no grasping mind, like the full moon reflecting universally, not confined anywhere, glistening within each of the ten thousand forms. Dignified and upright, emerge and make contact with the variety of phenomena, unstained and unconfused. Function the same toward all others since all have the same substance as you. Language cannot transmit this, speculation cannot reach it. Leaping beyond the infinite and cutting off the dependent, be obliging without looking for merit. This marvel cannot be measured with consciousness or emotion. On the journey accept your function, in your house please sustain it. Comprehending birth and death, leaving causes and conditions, genuinely realize that from the outset your spirit is not halted. So we have been told that the mind that embraces all the ten directions does not stop anywhere. -- Hongzhi Zhengjue (1091-1157)Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity.
Lead me from the complicated to the simple.
Lead me from the obscure to the obvious.
Lead me from intention to attention.
Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am.
Lead me from confrontation to wide openness.
Lead me to the place I never left,
Where there is peace, and peace - The Upanishads
One (alone, i.e. God, Brahman) exists merely virtually. It is incomplete in that it lacks realness and identity.
To achieve the completeness of realness the One needs to collide (i.e. apply itself) @ random, hence in a relativity vacuum, (to) with an alternate one (i.e. as self-elaboration), thereby creating a formless 1c2 moment (≈ a quantum of realness). Since the quantum of realness is momentary and formless it is incomplete in that it lacks temporal completeness (i.e. permanence) and form (≈ identity). (This was the Shakyamuni Buddha’s 1st beef).
To achieve the completeness of real identity the One needs to string together (i.e. apply itself as) a series (i.e. a relationship) of realness, i.e. 1c2 quanta. The latter series (a relative form experienced as identity ≈ samsara*) too is incomplete since its string bits are merely momentary realness quanta and its string relative (i.e. conditional). (This was the Shakyamuni Buddha’s 2nd beef).
It follows that both the One (i.e. God ≈ Brahman) and its self-application are incomplete.** Only the moment of formless contact between the One and its alternate application or between 2 alternate applications of the One are complete, albeit for a moment; likewise the ending (or slicing) of a string of realness moments makes complete. Hence the advice to those seeking liberation (Sanskrit: moksha) from the incomplete, and its signal, namely suffering, is to ‘live in the moment’ (hence without or prior to self-stringing).
*… The bondage of rebirth/re-death.
**… In the ancient Upanishads the incompleteness of the One (i.e. as creation matrix) was quickly discovered and the One was recalibrated as Two- (to n-) in-One), to wit, God and the world/nature or the nirguna (sign-less) and the saguna (with signs/marks) Brahman. The problem with Vedanta was that it claimed tattvamasi, meaning ‘Thou art that’ and which is wholly unconditional. Unconditional tattvamasi, however, was politically unworkable since it meant that nature ‘tooth and claw’ (i.e. every living thing ‘warts and all’) is Brahman, indeed that there is only one law to which all are subject regardless of birth and personal dharma. Both Shankara and Ramanuja (et al) took it upon themselves to row back from (an unworkable, because a-political absolute) tattvamasi and to retain a difference between God and nature, thereby to uphold a worldly dharma (that included the hereditary caste system and the varnas, and, in Ramanuja’s case, a personal God) and that functioned to the advantage of the already highly privileged Indian ruling castes. That Shankara (and others) failed to advance, indeed prevented tattvamasi (thus divine, meaning personal democracy and freedom of expression) from becoming the cultural leitmotif of India (as had happened for a brief period in ancient Greece) (violently) suppressed the creative genius of India, in particular of the majority sudras, and so retarded the development of India which, politically and religiously in-bred, gradually degenerated to the point where it became rife for foreign takeover.
‘Create or Die’
The (index) Finger sculpture is an icon for the basic thrust of life, namely, ‘Create (or die).’ If I* create I become (and happy because of it). If I don’t create I don’t become (and very unhappy because of it).
In ancient India the create program was iconised as the Linga, variously interpreted as a mark or sign, as flash of lightening (or enlightenment), or as Lord Shiva’s phallus (i.e. creative thrust).
That which I (and 7,500,000,000 other humans and countless other biological units) need to do (in principle within every set of circumstances) is to create difference. Scientists now claim that “Only random events carry instruction.” Meaning: “Only difference makes (a difference)!” Only the different can make contact. Sameness can’t make contact/strike since it is compressed out. Therefore since sameness cannot strike it can’t become real and identifiable. As Heraclitus said 2500 years ago: “You can’t step into the same river (to wit: sameness) twice!”
In other words, if I don’t become (indeed, if I don’t reinvent myself as) as a bit of difference (and which is attractive), I can’t strike/touch. And if I can’t strike/touch, I can’t be. And that hurts!
The bit of difference I (i.e. with my newly painted finger nails or new car) need to become, hence the way I want to strike/touch myself or others, is dependent on the conditions (so the Buddha) within which I find myself and my free choice of a desirable future (i.e. my dream) which I can invent/prophecy (to self-fulfil) and then make come true/real.
But there’s a catch. Since I need to become different in order to be (i.e. to survive as an expression of my true, because whole and complete self ** ≈ identity/address) I have to give up sameness, namely what I am right now (the now becoming ‘was’, i.e. the redundant past). If I cannot become different I cannot strike/touch and, consequently, fade and die.
Recall: “The right Way
Is the Untrodden.
It becomes the wrong Way
When you’ve stepped on it.”
Or, as the Man said, in order to live (i.e. to be what I want or choose to be) I have to die (meaning; sacrifice/give up/die to what I am right now). …. more
*… as fractal elaboration (meaning local copy) of the creation algorithm (or matrix). Note: This is ancient Indian pantheist*** and not the Judeo-Christian belief, the Irish monk John Scotus Eriugena and the German monk Meister Eckhart apart, both of whom were condemned). In the earliest Upanishad it is claimed that ‘Thou art That’, whereby ‘Thou’ (as atman) functions as a localised version of ‘That’ (as Brahman), hence is not different from ‘That.’ Thus “atman ≈ Brahman.” See: Self-realization

...lol..I still recall my demented body of light samadhi in the forest...I was expecting some deep answers about life and death?..Instead all I got was a stern warning...YOU ARE HERE TO EXPERIENCE YOURSELF!...so God is incomplete,it looks like...he becomes COMPLETE only in creation..from bacterias..to humans...and so on... this explains why GOD told me,,,you are here to experience...NO?...*added by the mahayogi...I love you too!..Victor!...at last I have one person I met who believes GOD exists only by creating...so my forest answer when I became the light and it said,,you are here to experience is vindicated at last! Halleluyahhh....so I am not the only one but Victor
Langheld got it too...thank you bro!..now let's get a beer!
*note*...first of all..the beauty of your spirit within and the joy is unconditional..means it is NOT dependent on conditions..it is without cause...is just is,by it's nature.
The secret of life after one's realization(and THAT is a formidable task,because without trauma you won't abandon your ego,even so you'd think that by going in samadhi you'll make it smooth..beware of my words...ego is ALL you know since birth...ego never dies,but is integrated,if you are lucky to observe the OBSERVER..ponder,grasshoppers..this is deep wisdom I'm telling you,my friends..believe me!!!..because you become the Observer only if you you're lucky ENOUGH to have some trauma in your life..no other way,even samadhi couldN'T give you this knowledge..you can be in samadhi for eons and not know the truth..really..I SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE..In other words,the realization is instant....but the way you get there is formidable,because you are LOST in the mind realms..by instant I mean you know your self true nature as light..by progressive I mean integration..PONDER GRASSHOPPERS!!! usually people stop at integration,and they thing the progressive light is the one..however,they forget that the very ego is doing it..hmm?.. ) of one's true nature(Tao,or Buddha nature,or the kingdom of heaven within,or all prevailing bliss and awareness of the thoughts,or sensations,or whatever IS manifesting..) is the integration of it..and remember on that point...you must look and find stuff which bothers you outside of yourself(unless you want to be a lasy Ramana Maharish ,siting in meditation all day,and saying is all a dream)
Is a dream from the absolute point..but from the relative is real...and remember..the absolute can't know itself unless is relative..why is that?..imagine yourself being all...would you create an universe where you separate in bits,and by doing that you'd have all the fun touching yourself in infinite possibilities of touching,and knowing yourself?..I think you'd do that,my friend..that's why GOD created this universe..to experience ITSELF..and touch itself in infinite ways,while singing ,,I touch myself,,..as the Divinyls sing on the video below..please be aware that I WAS GIVEN THIS SUPERNATURAL INFO..that WE are here to experience,while I was into the woods,and asked the question,after giving up on the world...and I WAS the light,and my VOICE said..you are here to experience YOURSELF!
And I was laughing of the cosmic drama so hard...that the forest was me,and the world was my creation,just for the fun of knowing myself...but IF YOU refuse the power within,and think there is some GOD outside of yourself...you'll MISS the very reason for your existence ...and the separating forces within you will give you so much pain,that one day you'll realize the reason for suffering..GOD is NOT A FOOL..he took measures to awaken himself,and with no pain,nobody would look inside for the truth,but they'll look outside.

quote"About that famous ,,rainbow body,, experience I've had..It took me completely by surprise.
Because seeing lights or becoming a light-beam(aka rainbow body) wasn't in my expectations..it just happened.
In retrospection,I don't think one could work for it,like..do this..and you'll go,,poof,, in a rainbow body(but maybe I'm mistaken,is just not part of my tradition)
Also,as I recall..I was at the end of a serious 8 months fasting(more or less) and meditation in the forests,while I was travelling by foot from Miami to Philadelphia...lost over 40 lb in the process.The more skinny I'd get,the more my meditations were becoming more amazing..kundalini waves were manifesting as a cool breeze in an empty shell of a skin bag,named ,,the body,,.
Total bliss indeed.
So I figured..why bother meditating,Danny..just go in the forest and abandon the body.
So as I was stepping deeper and deeper in the forest,with each step I'd abandon some deep layers of ego(while I was still in total bliss and joy).
Then I stopped still right in the middle of forest..and realized that I have abandoned even the idea of abandoning the body.
Then I asked aloud...then why I am here?
And set down in lotus,wondering about this question,looking around.,scratching my 8 months grown beard.
Then something happened...
As I abandoned even that question(why I am here?..on this earth I ment)..then poof..as I looked around..everything was light..I was a rainbow of light.I could see thru the trees too..and every one of them ,every leaf was me.
So I guess in the end it comes down to ,,letting go,, and something,the real nature will reveal itself.
When I saw that my real nature was light..and the same as the forest..I started to laugh so hard..of my previous stupidity to abandon the body.There is no one to abandon the body,see?
The meaning I got after that experience,as everything turned to normal..and the forest was there again,was that I was the light experiencing itself.
Never talked about that for years,till I read about the tibetan buddhists ,,rainbow of light,, and stuff.
Took me awhile to process the experience,really.
This stuff is real,indeed.
And about 3 weeks after that,as I was walking on the streets,I could see the people empty..just shadows of light,not aware of their essence.
Anyway,hope I haven't bothered you with my babbling ,I hope,hopefully..because you are the hope of the world(which doesn't exist,but it could if enough people realize their true nature)"
Thus spokenth the mahayogi,for those whom have ears to hear...kisses:)

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me
I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no
You're the one who makes me happy honey
You're the sun who makes me shine
When you're around I'm always laughing
I want to make you mine
I close my eyes
And see you before me
Think I would die
If you were to ignore me
A fool could see
Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees
I'd do anything for you
To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-
