watering the garden during yet another scorcher, Tim had a few words
regarding the last post
, and about being Risen and the subject of
"Hey, August — what's all this piffle about 'lenses being the Risen experience'? It makes it sound like we go around making spectacles of ourselves!"
amusing, Tim. As you often do, you're suggesting in your own witty way
that I should lighten up, aren't you? I agree, as I often do with you —
all that existential stuff was making me depressed. After I finish
watering, and we get back to the house, why don't you elaborate a bit
more, and I'll type as you talk."
"Ok, Tim, I'm ready. Take it away."
people still in your terrestrial geography seem so hell-bent (pun
intended) on "achieving non-duality" which they then seem to think will
bring them to a "state of oneness" and that this is either necessary to
happen before, during, or after their transition towards becoming Risen.
"Risen" is just another way of saying "awakened" -- on a certain level. This level is usually (but not always) found on a non-corporeal level, but it could be on a terrestrial one. (Here "level means "conscious awareness ~ AG.) "Oneness" is not
something we become, since we already are
an integral, inseparable part of everything in creation, and so we already
are – individually and collectively – "one." So if you feel you must strive, strive to awaken enough to
become consciously aware of your inseparable state.
"But you don't need to strive.
in the Risen state of awareness, there is what might be called
duality, but without the ego's mind control. Just like in that little animation film
you shared earlier, the sense of Oneness is being at
rest. But if you want someone to play with, there must be duality. And
guess what? Creator Source loves to rest, but it also loves to play.
terrestrial ego-mind is the one with the faulty vision and needing
glasses! It can only see "this and/or that" — it sets up a dynamic that could be play, but instead is most often a battle of elimination — something that amounts to war games.
"The Risen mind can see "this and all that" — a multiplicity of existences, all simultaneously playing in the same place — while not competing for it.
and so then multiplicity, is a gift, a ways and means to experience
something beyond oneness . . . quite clever, isn't it? It allows for
Primeval Joy to flow up and out, down and back again, the fountain of
life. It moves, it enlivens, invigorates, refreshes, vibrates. This is
vibration! The 'river of inner sensations flowing within, the eternal
dance of the countless vibrations within every atom of the body' as
quoted in your previous post."
