The End of Suffering
And, Doing Good for Others

Recently, I experienced new layers of revelations into the nature of reality. These revelations have shown me, in new and vigorous manners, both the nature of pure consciousness, as well as new understandings, in a very different and more direct way, the fastest, clearest, and most efficient method of clearing our karmic indebtedness, and realizing our true nature.
In the highest realms of consciousness, there exists what is called by various names in various esoteric wisdom cultures, Pure Consciousness. Regardless of its name, its constituency is that of pure consciousness not embodied, or aware of anything outside of itself. It is the pure consciousness of creation, the mind of god, the heart or creation. It is known, as I said, by various names in various cultures. It, often, is the first emanation of creation. In Vedic wisdom, it is known as Purusha, for instance. It is sometimes called Parashakti, though I understand this to be the second emanation of consciousness, or Life Force, which permeates the universe. It is the union of Pure Consciousness and Pure Life Force which springs all reality into manifestation. This is the heart of the teachings of the Sri Yantra, in Vedic wisdom. However, this is just one culture’s expression of this reality, used to clarify the nature of the expression of Pure Consciousness which “I” entered.
It is important to realize, when one experiences this state, there is no “I” which is separate from the All. All is all there is.
In this state of Pure Consciousness, the mind is left unto itself to witness and create all reality. To the normal ‘western’ mind, this state of being might tend toward psychological incriminations of some form of delusion, or insanity, versus the revered states of divine revelation it would be recognized as, in many other parts of the world. This is, in large part, because the western mind does not incorporate this level of understanding of reality. However, should we invest in the teachings of many world cultures, we would find a body of wisdom supporting this level of revelation and realization, as well as deep cherishing for anyone embodying it.
In this level of experience, the “I” becomes the all-pervading I. There is no other. No other mind, no other self. When an ‘other self’ becomes apparent, it is when the mind steps down into the illusory world of separation and duality.
It is in
this world of duality, when we imagine our self not to be the One Mind, in
which we begin to experience life as we more commonly know it. The very fabric of our reality becomes based
on all choices and experiences we enter, within this fabric of being. We are in complete autonomous control of the
experience. However, we tend to not
realize this, as we create, imagine, or ‘recognize’ greater and greater
separation from the Source. It is this
illusion of separation which creates the ‘fall’ from Grace, the fear that we
are not part of the Whole, indeed, the very doubt that we are, the Whole.
We tend to
spiral down into ever deeper arcs of belief, or, in actuality, disbelief, which
we might commonly call the “3D” world, away from our heart of hearts, our One
Mind of All Creation.
emanation of every thing is birthed of this One Experience.
The truth is, there is no annihiliation. But it appears so to the ego. For the ego is invested in the illusion of separation and individuality. Yet, ‘individuality,’ get this, in actuality, means, in its root origin of meaning, ‘indivisible.’ To be an individual, is to be indivisible, with the One.
The slow and tedious method of changing our experience karmically, is by recognizing we are all emanations of the One Mind, and to, simply, do good to others, as if the other was our self. Wow. Now doesn’t that remind us of one of the great quotes of one of the great master teachers of our lives? “Do unto others as you would have them do unto yourself.”
There it was before us, this whole time.
We are One.
In Buddhist teachings, is the Mahayana, the Tonglin
wisdom. In Peru, it is the Law of
again is the delusion of the ‘western’ mind, which thinks this to be bunk.
We do unto
others as we realize each is but an aspect, a reflection, an expression, of the
One Mind, the One Self. Indeed, that is
all that is pouring through us.
Once we can
realize we are but the One Mind, we are free from all else.
There is no God but God. God is all There Is.
Many blessings, to each of my companions on this sacred journey.
** Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian method of healing and
realization. In its modern form, it was
brought forward by Kahuna Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona for this purpose.
“If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process of correcting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and our society.”
Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona
I love you, I am sorry, Thank you, Please forgive me.
What is most
fascinating, is in the realization of the sameness of all teachings, all
traditions. There is no other Creator to
manifest separate wisdom to separate tribes among us.
