The Illusion

  1. Sumerian Clay tablets: homo sapiens was
        genetically engineered by The 12th Planet1 "gods,"
    The female ape DNA "spliced" with the male astronaut DNA sperm
    Possible mistaken was the Old Testament Genesis?

  2. Buddha was sent to "enlighten" homo sapiens,
    To elevate him/her above the 12th Planet beings.
    Demonstrating the existence of the Unmanifested Infinite
        Impersonal Consciousness,
    Yet for the "slave-created" earthlings teachings too obtuse
    Thus, missed the mark, Buddha's lessons?

  3. Jesus, the Christ, a simpler, more personalized teaching:
        The Unmanifested became "Our Father."
    Yet organized religion obstacles between the average
        person and his/her "God" placed.
    While the esoteric/mystic Jesus went underground only
        to "resurrect" periodically.
    Now a battle booms: Jesus (Organized Catholic/Protect religions)
        versus Jesus2 (esoteric/mystical) versus Jesus (Fundamentalists)
    Are the Jesus teachings misinterpreted3, misunderstood,
        twisted for reasons political/religious/economic?

  4. Recently Eastern mystical literature -
        Advaita from India4, Chan/Tao from China,
        and Zen from Japan
    Another evolutionary impulse from unmanifest
        Consciousness represents?
    To see that all the above is just an illusion,
    Just as we, as little egos, are also.
    Does the world population now need more clarity
        of understanding, more harmony and peace5.
    Do we need to be rooted in the unmanifest
        to see the Divine Comedy before our eyes unfold,
        so no reaction can disturb our tranquility?

  5. And, of the "end of the world", or even our own death?
    No problem. For it all is just a mental image,
        the content of Consciousness
    Thus, all phenomenal manifestation is entirely imaginary
        and totally illusionary.
    So, relax and enjoy! Let your destiny
        be lived out through your mind-body organism,
        according to the Cosmic Plan.

  6. Thy will be done!
    "Once we accept nothingness everything is added to us."

Questions

  1. Did the Formless take material form in Jesus Christ?
    And/or, invisible "light" in our innermost being,
        the Formless, did share?
    Was Jesus Christ "just" a "pointer," like Buddha/others,
        to the Formless?
    When your temporary form dies/dissolves,
        to your essence, what happens?

  2. How often do you connect with your essence,
        beyond your form?
    Is your essence, the Essence of the Formless, the same?
    Are words/concepts only other forms as other "pointers"?
    Does it even matter? Why?

  3. Between the "old consciousness" and
        the "new consciousness,"
        what difference is there?1
    Other questions have you?
    To share, desire? Contact me.

NOTE: Returning from the Point, listening Tolle tape, "Living the Liberated Life and the Pain Body," some thoughts arose.

If

  1. If identify with the Formless,
    How possibly identify with any form.
    Such as: "I am a Catholic"; "I am a Jew"; "I am a Sufi";
    "I am a Muslim"; "I am a Gnostic"; "I am a Buddhist";
        and so on.
    For forms are only POINTERS to the Formless.

  2. Identification with any form is purely
        ego-enhancing/ego-embellishing,
    Causing separation and comparison.
    This, frequently, "the other" and defensiveness, creates.
    Jesus said: "Deny thyself"--does this mean:
    Let the self dissolve?

  3. If there is no self, can there be a Dark Night
        of the Soul?
    So many ifs!
