This is the sequel to my post on the Kundalini. I don’t tell anyone to pull their head out of their arse in this one, it explores the idea that the only thing that gets in the way of the soul is a false identity and offers some insights as to how it got there. As a side dish, I also talk a little about the elixir of immortality. It was too long, so I broke it up into two parts. You can find part two in the previous post ‘Red Gallactic Serpent Part 2’. Its got the bit about the elixir in it, so you have to read Part 1 before you can read it.
Part 1: Nudging The False Identity – The Mortal– Out of The Way.
In my last entry I mentioned rather than mastering desire, people had been working on foreclosing it, and you don’t want to get rid of desire because it is the force through which the soul is embodied. That the problem is, what is desired is lacking feeling. I am going to go into this more, because when what is desired is insatiable, and force exercised to fulfil what is impossible to gratify (because its lacking feeling), a recipe for mass destruction is conceived. Indeed, the stockpiling of weapons does not appear from out of nowhere. So from where does it come?
Since the pursuit of what is desired when stockpiling weapons is lacking feeling, the animation of the physical form is invariably one propelled by what is clearly a figment of the mind. It becomes evident that power corrupts once what is desired is an illusion. Power is not something that you exercise as though some form of external prosthesis. It is inseparable from who you are. That is, unless what you desire is lacking feeling, at which who you are is powerless, and a false identity needing power emerges. All that corruption occurring when who you are is absent, and what is desired the fulfilment of what is an illusion is a huge burden to carry. Moreover, it is not just the flow of feeling that is diminished through the pursuit of desire when a figment of the mind; the real object of desire is clearly foregone. Consequently, both what is felt, as well as what is desired, are suppressed.
And what is the real object of desire? If desire is the force through which the soul is embodied, and life sustained, what is desired is who you are: the soul that is infinite. It is the only pursuit of desire in which the flow of feeling experienced is endless. It is the sacred ground of the most precious thing that being human exemplifies, and the unencumbered embodiment of it is undoubtedly the most potent potential of humanity. The reduction of being human to merely possessing a physical form is endemic in the mortal world, and yet the truncation that takes place is monolithic. One indicative of the spiritual blindness occurring when what is recognised only ever considers what is visible, despite it being blatantly obvious the source from which life – that is inseparable from who you are, and impossible to extricate without ceasing to exist – emerges is clearly not visible.
The pulsating, vibrant, and earthy quality of who you are living one with the cosmos, and immensity of celestial existence, is massacred and squashed into a suffocating prism when what is perceived to be human is limited to the strictly physical parameters of the human body. The distortion of reality occurring is so vast it is virtually impossible to convey in the two-dimensionality of visible symbols known as writing, but I’m giving it a try.
It is evident to me that desire is not just the force through which the soul is embodied; it is the force through which an identity is embodied. When what is desired is the soul, and this endless, the force of desire embodied is inseparable from the forces of the universe. And it is out this process of embodiment when harnessing the forces of the universe, that an identity is formed. The experience of who you are, is subsequently so gratifying, that it is impossible to fathom without being mind blowing. Whilst I am no doubt skimming the surface on all that can be said about what is taking place when embodying who you are, if there is such a thing as a superhuman I cannot think of a more believable means through which it emerges. Conversely, when what is desired is a figment of the mind, in pursuing what is desired the very identity of who you are that is embodied is bogus. Whilst the forces of the universe converge when embodying your soul, this invariably involves the destruction of a false identity harmful to the physical form through which the force of desire is perverted. What ever it is, let it go. You simply cannot be loving who you are, if what you desire is lacking feeling, at least not without deluding yourself in someway.
When the pursuit of what is desired is a figment of the mind, to persist a negative personalty emerges constituting part of the identity even though it is heartless, and gratification of what is desired impossible. We’ve all seen an example of this, you spend ages working on xyz, some mornings waking up a hairy monster, and when your project is completed, you’ve achieved what you set out to do, but you’re feeling crap. In the instance the pursuit of desire directly involves a legal, political, or economic regime for example, you achieve what you set out to do –more laws, more corruption, or more wealth – and worse than feeling crap, feeling nothing at all. So shall we see if I can do some literary magic to help redirect the use of force away from the bogus personality and back toward the soul? Since I can’t imagine how to do this without first being able to trace the movements of the false identity, what follows outlines some of the key attributes of the inner mortal a figment of the mind. This is not a fruitless task; to draw on the teachings of Bhagawan Sri Ramana Maharishi, inquiry ‘into the nature of one’s self that is in bondage, and realising one’s true nature is liberation.’ May you be inspired to harness the forces of the universe, and perfect your embodying the endless reaches of your soul.
When I refer to the ‘negative personality’ it is my way of describing who you are, were you not you. ‘Negative’ as in absent, as well as bogus. Once this happens a shift takes place in which the synchronistic quality of time is missing (hence the telepathic governing matrix is lost). An experience of chronological time, one in which a past or future is perceived surfaces, since who you are is not present, even though the fulfilment of desire can only occur when you are. Whilst it is hard to dispute an ability to embody anything is possible when what is felt is lacking, clearly the identity formed, past and future, are all a product of the fabrication of reality emerging out of a figment of the mind. If all that is the power of the force of desire when askew, imagine what magic is possible were the forces of the universe propelling everyone and this gratifying.
When embodying the false identity, and the illusion manifested to pass unnoticed, the physical form is in some way moved by fear owing to the loss of both feeling and desire taking place. By fearing the illusion manifested, because it is not particularly pleasant, the experience of force one devoid of feeling is only intensified, and exerting ever-increasing stress on the physical form, until what is feared is addressed. There are many ways of relating to this, one would be to say, were you to ignore what is felt out of fear because what is experienced is painful, you are merely becoming more vacant (ie. negative). You’ve just created a nice little berth harbouring the negative personality.
For as long as what is feared passes unnoticed, it is not just that what is desired is foregone, in foregoing what is desired on an inner level the physical form undergoes aging, or some form of dilapidation, or addiction to some form of metaphorical soporific as an escape from what is being experienced, through which the physical form is generally impossible to govern. In forgoing what you desire – who you are – what takes place is hardly a surprise. Whilst on an environmental level the physical form is simultaneously exposed to laws, legislation, and the general regulation of behaviour.
There is much that can be said on the relationship between the internal experience dread of fear, and the external experience of constraint when subjected to laws and regulations. The negative personality invariably gives berth to a control freak in an effort to avoid the pain experienced when pursuing an illusion, but that’s a whole other story. Suffice it to say a legal system, or code of conduct is an intrinsic part of the mortal world, since it persists for as long as what is an illusion is feared. At which point, the burden carried – the density of the mortal world – is getting heavier.
A force devoid of life is progressively internalised forming part of the identity and hence the world, rather than a force vibrant with energy through which the soul is embodied, and the identity formed immeasurable. Were the identity that emerges suppressed – because it is lacking feeling; or thought to be bad; or what is felt painful; or what is desired thought oppressive since it is impossible to gratify– the negative personality a figment of the mind is only reinforced or strengthened. For as long as suppression of the bogus identity persists, any means of dispelling the illusion are repressed, and does anyone really want that to happen? Is it possible to control what is an illusion without validating or bolstering the existence of that illusion?
The subsequent distortion of truth in the mortal world is considerable. Were you to find yourself navigating dense mindscapes, such as the mass media –through which the illusory character of a legal, political, and economic regime is unrecognised – toxic city environments, Gregorian Calendar land, or the taxi stand outside Delhi airport, its worth heeding. What takes place when attempting to suppress the negative personality is equivalent to attempting to stop your house from burning down, and using petrol to put it out. If what is desired is insatiable because it is lacking feeling for example, or a negative personality formed when what is desired is bogus to give another example, then oppression and condemnations are clearly not the answer. You’ve already tried that.
So this is it, may I kindly provide you with a metaphorical bucket of water to help you out were your house burning down. The destruction of the negative personality a figment in the mind, takes place when…
