I appreciate your post, it speaks of the 3 worlds people are typically unaware of and treat it as one whole. Unaware of the Nirmanakaya, Sambogakaya,
and Dharmakaya. Yet live in all three in varying degrees making the world of duality because not everyone is synchronized. We constantly choose when
to dip into a heaven or hell or then start speaking about our ego trips into both and heaven and hell, yet it is the ego that cannot control the
dipping attached to one or the other a heaven or a hell and letting the mouth run wildly about a truth only relative to them but taken as the voice of
the entire world when doing so.
The phenomenon of news is that it is for the most part wholly negative... and the headlines hunt for the current or flow of bias that they think will
draw in the most readers, to support some agendas of other entire groups... keeping it all in a spin of constant chaos drawing more and more people
into the fray and whipping people into a frenzy by chosen and held beliefs, by pointing fingers at this is why you and the world are unhappy at the
same time another group pointing fingers at you and your chosen beliefs as to why they are unhappy... keeping it in a perpetual state of spinning.
No rest and no ease for not only oneself but all others. Joining the fray in admonition for peaceful purposes is like an adult going you know better
shame on you... this is something I see, at the same time many believe in some higher adult unseen in their lives they equate to a god or force that
says yes by all means act out those people are wrong and not trying to be happy the same as you but remember the way you were taught to get to this
heaven to be with me and ignore their way to get to heaven to be with that evil one not me.
That is the subconscious voice of ego, intangible can't be seen nor heard by others only oneself... yet taken as ones creator instead of the worlds
perpetrator of sufferings. From the ego of conscious reflecting on past memory holding ourselves back, to the subconscious as a deity rationalizing
and doing the same thing as it's own sounding board for justification. Then seeking groups that believe in error the same thing they can closely
identify with and call a family to feel a sense of belonging in a see you in heaven sort of thing, failing to see everyone and all their actions in
the here and now that make the place a hell because they've no responsibility to anyone or anything except the ego and the subconscious rationalizing
voice they've called a self.
Of course the bubble that ceases placing attention on things one finds disturbing is a place of rest and solace more experience of the Nirmanakaya, to
draw ease and strength to once again dive into the battle or fray until they see they are a perpetuation in the sambogakaya fighting with ghosts
monsters and demons of ones and others own past that they cannot let go of in a never ending or ceasing cycle of rebirth, heaven and hells to repeat
over and over again... yet eventually that self will shed and see their perpetuation of it as over time it cannot help but be seen for exactly what it
is. Suffering and the perpetuation of suffering for the sake of personal greed and held hate for others not oneself keeping them from what they want
or desire to be happy... knowing they are a with consciousness and intent perpetuating all of that and do not have too and the ego dies.
After the ego dies, then one clearly sees such and the world as it was in all of that spinning chaos ceases to be enchanting in any way shape or form
it arises and it passes moment by moment and in each moment there is a choice to act or not act or remain neutral in the arisings of the 3 worlds, as
heavens are one and the same place as hell, and the only thing that separates or makes them different are those very attachments, yet they go nowhere
attached or not...
When someone dies what has been lost? Your memories of them? No they are still there. Just the possibility of having future experiences with them, yet
what are they other than what you think, feel, wanted, or expected of them by way of ego and how they expressed themselves different than what you
think, want, or feel, or the same as you think, want, or feel. Yet none of that in ego was or is truly oneself... so what has actually been lost but a
body or form or material that harnessed a view different or similar than ones own, that we have labels of like mother, father, sister, brother etc
etc. when all of humanity is like this... making us all family and to have the possibility of the same experiences with many many even all others just
the same, yet attachment to the form as oneself when it is not oneself the form of others when it is not the other... but the expression of energy
bound in a form that suffers and tries to seek ease from suffering due to that form holding and harnessing ideas and concepts about form and forms not
oneself that it arises into an ego that differentiates this from that, she from he, those from them and on and on, until the suffering of form ends
that is made worse and perpetuated by the mind.
That understanding of things arise and they pass they come and go and they change no matter the they or objects involved does not have to occur on
death to awaken to see how precious and awe inspiring all of this is, from the smallest grain of sand that used to be a part of a larger whole called
a shell, that once housed a living energy at some point incalculable before it withered against time and tide into what we call sand when standing on
a beach, it of course is mixed with some that used to be large mighty rocks withered down over time just the same... both from a world long long past
and just as precious and magical when seen for more than just sand.
The water lapping at ones feet on the same beach has risen and fallen countless times over the face of the entire earth... every single drop has
touched the face of the earth at some point in time, thats the beauty and magic that we can see as the earth at any given moment when not so
entrenched in ego selves and what keeps perpetuating pain loss and suffering for things that once grasped can never be held onto no matter how tightly
one holds... grab a handful of that sand that used to be many rocks many shells that housed living beings as tightly as you can and then walk into the
water fist full of sand under water and one for balance and just simply enjoy the water.
Can you enjoy the water more clutching the sand? Or letting it go? If you feel the grains slowly slipping and sliding through your fingers does it
send you into fear and panic that it is slipping out despite all of your grasping? Or do you open the palm cease grasping to set it free and in such a
manner can finally actually swim and enjoy the water without all the clutching and grasping to something one can never hold onto and just be right
there right then no different than the matter and energy that encompasses and surrounds all things when not attached to limitations enclosed as a fist
ready to fight others with them if need be? Or hold the hand open and show others where our dead relatives and possibly a self not ones current form
used to live?
Choice is personal responsibility, those choices make us responsible to all others... may they be made wisely and the best of your abilities to help
those not oneself, all life is precious.
