In life we have passions. These passions become colored and get in the way, or propel you along the way. The duality of methods for dealing with the passions involves either detaching from them, or diving into them.
Between these methods of the universe is the human being. The human being having the sole and perpetual responsibility of never coming down hard on either side of duality. This is the deeper meaning of the classic Yin/Yang symbol. Not that duality exists, but that Yin is always Yin, and Yang is always Yang. To neglect the wide vision which encompasses both results in disruption from the unseen, or the unknown. This is the purpose of strategy.
This here being the way of the chariot, of contemplative and tantric action, what then is the essence of this tantra? That the electric charge between poles of duality are annihilated in Bliss. And this is the true nature of all passions; Bliss. Such Bliss is the nature of the Body.
The Body notwithstanding, must be attended to with the utmost care, concern, and responsibility. However, what good is any practice soever if our bodies are not strong enough to embrace and embody our passions? In such a case as weakness in the Body, the passions themselves devour the Body from the inside out, either through repression or obsession. This is the true nature of disease as a perfect plasticity and strength of body renders it immune to disruption.
If Supermind is, than disease is not.
The passions are oft confused with the Heart. Doing this is narcissistic, as true passion is biological and again, strategic. Bliss is something that tingles inside your living tissues, the satisfaction of getting what you want. One of the clearest insights is to realize you have a human right to feel wonderful and seek the living wonders of biological life. One cannot do this if you do not train and discipline the Body to have a capacity to embody the living wonder and Bliss of the universe. Which universe, in its factual and objective entirety, exists within you as component parts to your complex biological existence. What is above is not “The Above” of the alchemists, but rather the within of the Delphic Maxims. Each human being contains even the earth itself inside her body for without it, we are not.
Consciousness, your conscience, resides in the Heart. The true genius, the guardian angel, the daemon, the soul, the sun, and the son are all names given to the Heart energies. Wrapped in the bovine love of breath and charged with the lions beat. Supported by the satisfaction of the feminine/earth body, and the unquenchable thirst to wander, to discover, to plant seeds, and grow dreams. And True Love, which Love is the creator and gamer of the passions.
It is in the Heart that we transcend. For the opening of the Heart goes to infinite, and this great knowledge of infinite is both the source of all our sorrow and the summit of all our seeking. The Heart expands its sensitivity out into the physical universe, and can communicate and forge bonds with forces and powers alive in our objective world, both beyond and within the capacity of our physical senses, out in the galaxies and on other planes of existence, and the fellow humans surrounding us right here.
It is the essence of community, family, fraternity, sorority. The Heart penetrates the body with True Love and fuses to it its subtle force, its subtle body which can then serve as an antennae and attractor for events, musings, dreamings … in a word; Myth.
It is in the Heart Consciousness that we are ourselves. Our true identity outside the stream of time. Never born, undying, pure and eternal is the Heart. The quality of each moment measured forever against the backdrop of eternity, quanta by quanta, moment to moment, Loving the Bliss of aeternity, Loving the Body, is Consciousness forever there. To know one another on this level of existence is to be dancing together in the eternal Garden of Souls, celebrating in Paradise whilst suffering Bliss on the earth.
If Supermind is, than sorrow is not.
Thought is often confused with the Mind. Doing this is nihilistic, as thoughts are a result of our biology, and specifically our complex triune brain. True Mind we will term Intellect. This Intellect is simply present, it simply is. Radically empty, but yet, full of a nothingness connected outside of this universe, outside of any way we can know reality itself. Beingness, presence, truly and fully living in the moment comes from Mind. Similar to the way the Heart penetrates the Body, the Mind is all penetrant in Body and Heart. You could say that Mind is before, and will be after, but this is saying too much. True Mind, the Intellect, is beyond any conceptions. Our conceptions; the way we conceive ideas are merely thoughts created by the penetration of the Heart energy influencing the passions of the Body. The Heart has a relationship with the Body, with time, with duality … it is involved in its own game for its own success, its own reasons, its own delight, which are transcendent and divine. The Mind IS all these things, is always everything and all things.
The Mind penetrates the Body and Heart until both become totally and permanently aware of its presence … this is actually what we term ‘awareness’. The Heart is the basis of our transcendence, the Intellect is the basis of our evolution. From Intellect, information from outside the universe can be brought into the moment to accelerate the development of the Body and Heart. This is the essence of Art. True Art is known as Art because it is Intellect that has successfully and completely penetrated the Body and Heart with unique/original information that originated outside the universe as we know it. It is the way of Original Heaven, and the True Immortality. This Art can be consummated in the Body through Works (acts/behaviors/etiquette), in the Heart through Love, and in the Mind itself through self-referencing Gnosis, which reflects out into the world as great artifacts of genius.
If Supermind is, than confusion is not.
