The light you are reading by.... how does it get into your brain?
Even if you had windows on your head, how would that light if it got from out there get out there again to create what you see, as you are aware what
you see is actually made in your visual cortex of your brain....
I have mentioned this several times on ATS and imho it is a really really important thing for everyone to ponder, think about and understand not just
intelectually.... but to really really think about it....
ALL the light we see, read by etc is not out there it is imposible biology and science proves this as such, and philisophically to... in meditation
etc to and the NDE of blind from birth people...
WE create in ourselves all the "stuff" we call light or the experience we have of physical light out there..... there is no other way for it to
And in a similar way when doing much diety meditation or such like, or when the name of god in certain traditions is repeated endlessly for years or
whatever the path.... the very fabric of your experience changes to become that thing as such.
You might be very very interested in Chenrezi, look deeply into the creation of him in meditation how it is done and imagined... I am sure that will
interest you indeed....
We are and create any light we experience... though I am not saying that out there light waves are not so, but all we "See" as light is self
generated... no normal human has ever truley seen light... because he cant step out of his/her visual cortex to experience it.
This is imho the light the yogic JC was reffering to... he knew this profound reality before scince from experiencial awareness within meditation
Just to add, not to long ago, this year anyhow I did a very highly regarded Tibetan Yogi/Lama a favor and gave him a lift to a college close by to
spend a few hours talking to students of the faculty of religion.
Afterwards walking in the grounds with him and some of the students and his reception party as such one of the students asked me if I thought he was
enlightened (the Lama) now I certainly know he has much levels of realisation way beyond anything I can acces or understand at the moment... but
enlightened I doubt it.... however I also know something about this so i gave him the most natural answer...
well if he was he wouldnt let you know anyhow...
The student and a accompanying Philosphy Teacher gave me a bemused look.... so I continued
Because then you would start worshipping him.... and also start looking for the answers outside of yourself, looking for him to give you it...
I noticed as I was saying this he had started to take notice a bit more and slow down his pace from a few yards ahead and the group he was
walking/talking with, concerned i may have overstepped my mark and shouldnt be saying anything... I regardless continued to finish with what I knew
It's within you, all of it.
He flashed a wonderfull smile brilliantly glimsped upwards to a clear blue sky briefly, and then ignored me carring on giving 100% attention then to
those around him picking up his pace again.
I knew I was at least part right then about what I said... but if I am right as my description shows about him not quite yet being enlightened I have
no idea lol as he wouldnt tell me, as its all within me.
The light to.
Love and Kind regards
