On the Path

Supernova when you close your Eyes

It’s difficult to pinpoint the exact astrological signature of any one event, though some are obviously easier to describe. The question I pose here is one of those which isn’t so clear cut, though I can offer some hypotheses in order to take a stab at where this blueprint is.

There are some, who search all their lives for “something”, and never find contentment, they read thousands and thousands of books, and travel an equal number of miles, both nautical and terrestrial, and they still don’t “FIND IT”.

I’ve spent a lengthy amount of time walking past it, day in day out, and one fair, fine day I walked in. I opened the door and simply walked into the garden of Eden, awed by the tree of life.

Planets which are terrestrial and rule over the personality, these are the traditional “inner planets”. Extra terrestrials include everything beyond Saturn. These have nothing to do with the personality. This is the point in the solar system where particles turn into waves.

The key to the door was having a peaceful spot, to practice the mantra. Not only peaceful, but beautiful, dazzled in Sun, surrounded by flowers that look like red and yellow flames. I might say that this is a Venusian picture of beauty and peace.

The primary accomplishment was to disengage from the ego, and the personality. It required some clean living, and discipline, so I can thank the long transit of Exalted Saturn for this. Once I desired nothing, it was easy to untangle myself from my-self.

Since this is primarily an “inner heaven” which I have found, I might thank Jupiter and Sun conjunct the IC. I progressed from living in mentality and rationality, to living in a different area. If the third rules the mind and the senses, then what is the fourth? It’s the core. So I travelled inside. Right into the heart.

Total Inversion

Spiritual realisation came from stopping on my current path, turning around and walking in the exact opposite direction. I’ve found purest consciousness. When I released myself from the word “I”, when thought became something that occurred around and in that person that I once “was”, it was possible to step out from my “body”.

Who can I thank for these mystical realisations? Pluto first brought me intense transformation, Neptune brought me transcendence, and Uranus hit me with the bolt of enlightenment.

 

Still a Demon

But, I am still here in this body. I still have desire and senses and thought and mind. What’s the state of my consciousness? Revelling in Nirvana. The only way to progress is the path of the Bodhisattva. Christ was temped by Satan himself. Where would I make a deal with the almighty evil one? I drive a pretty hard bargain normally, but if that one with the strong will and even stronger ego, came to me now, how could I resist it?

Keep Going

Keep doing the mantra and keep on  the path. Transcendence was found in a terrestrial place. But I now know that I don’t strictly need a place. Anywhere where I am, I can transcend. I’ve often wanted to travel, and I can do so now, without actually going anywhere.

Rapture, today and every day

21 05 2011

Heaven is found within. All religious and spiritual truth is found within. These are words that I heard but never understood, for most of my life, until I started meditating and seriously working on understanding “myself” or the illusion of myself.

If I were to go to heaven tomorrow, there “I” would be. In this sense I’d be taking my “self” with all of its flaws there and I would still be suffering there, and so it wouldn’t be heaven. To find heaven I must leave behind the “Ego”, all thoughts, and all emotions which relate to the physical body or the idea of the self. Heaven is to be found by those who are able to leave behind everything which builds ego.

I will be in the “Rapture” tomorrow, I am sure of it, because I will go and meditate in the afternoon after work. And as I meditate repeating my special prayer, or “mantra”, I will confess all of the things which are of this earth and which cause me to be caught up in hell, which is internal. After hours of this meditation I will ascend into a part of my being, which is spiritual and it will appear as a white light. And there will be no thoughts which perturb this vision, and there will be no emotion which is able to destabilise it, and with my eyes closed I will find heaven.

Jesus Christ the man, may be walking the Earth. But I do not need to see the man, to know Christ the consciousness. My physical body and mind will not go to heaven. In heaven there is no death and decay, and so the physical body as it is with blood can’t and shouldn’t go there. The solar body, which is a different kind of body, which operates in a different dimension can find heaven, but this body can only be created through not being attached to the physical existence, which is animalistic.

When I realise that my ego and my body are just a test for the real self, which is of a different dimension, when I understand that the earthly plain is not truly real, and that it is more or less a game or an act, and that my self in fact and my body is not my real self, then I am able to move forward.

I, as a man, am a body, and of flesh, I have family which are also made of flesh and I have a job and a role, which is mental, but which is nothing more than sustenance to that flesh. But when we talk about consciousness, we leave the lower mind, which relates to the matter of the earth, and we also leave behind all things related to the body. Those who will find the rapture tomorrow will leave behind their physical bodies, this does not mean death, it just means awakening of consciousness.

The idea of heaven is not “post-physical death”. This is the great mistake of modern thought, which looks at the spiritual writings and says, after death, is the afterlife and heaven. No, heaven is on earth, heaven does not occur after one dies at the age of 78 after living a “good life”. Heaven is possible now. Heaven is spiritual living. The biggest spiritual mistake is to believe that God is only to be found or seen after physical death. All my life, I inclined to believe that God was something the individual came into contact with as an external entity. It is true we must be “good” in order to begin to live the way we were meant to live, which is in true glory.

To begin the journey I must go into myself. It takes concentration to silence all thoughts related to the lower mind, and there are techniques to doing this, which involve prayer, or mantra, sitting in silence in a serene location, preferably with a pond or lake with fish in it and trees, and stillness. The aim is to leave behind totally the daily life. At first thoughts which relate to this unreal life will swim around in the consciousness, and they will do all they can to talk over the spirit. Once the lower mind is conquered, there will still be emotion, or feeling which exists, like a residue of past events, which can weigh a person down. Focusing on something within nature such as a stone or flower, and understanding its existence in relation to all things around it, will help me to calm those waters. This is a long process and it requires persistence and strength of mind in order to get results.

All belief which relates the personal ego of this life to the eternal soul, is seriously mistaken.  The idea that “I” as a personality, or even as a collection of memories related to the physical life of my human body could live, or even want to live eternally is absurd. When one has experienced suffering in life and has understood that all of life is suffering and that all individual egos are caught in the illusion of the self, then one understands that for that individual ego to continue living after physical death is not only impossible, but utterly undesirable also.

I as a person, as a physical body, do not wish to continue living after death. This life is a trial, it is suffering. But this suffering is a wonderful opportunity in which to develop pure consciousness. All that which you can see and test, is logic, and relates directly with physical existence. But  there is a higher knowledge, a higher understanding which is not one mind which can only deal with one thought at a time, and this is heavenly knowledge, and relates to the tree of life.

In this life I must turn things on its head. It doesn’t matter if I lose my job or fail my course. It doesn’t matter if I have not money either. It doesn’t matter if my love for someone is not mutual. All of these things are superficial distractions, because they are primarily external to the true self, and that they are all part of the ego of illusion. If all of these things in my life were to fall apart and leave me, I should be happy, because I would have the chance to work on my true self. I would have the chance to go inside and find heaven.
