Qualities of the Self

Qualities of the Self

August 30, 2018

Although the Self has no qualities, good or bad, it is pure emptiness, we can still assign or project some qualities on it, just to communicate about it. A human mind cannot conceive of anything without assigning a quality to it. It is also a limitation of the language, we need some description to talk about it, even if it cannot be described.
In this meeting we will discuss some of those so called qualities and their meaning.

Names and Forms

Names and Forms

August 26, 2018

The world is names and forms. This is the famous teaching. Hows that even possible? How to gain a direct experience of it? How to verify it and get solid evidence for it? We will dig into this teaching in this discussion and try to get a direct experience of the essential nature of the world. This is also a demonstration of gaining knowledge via enquiry, as is customary in the path of knowledge.

Fear of Death

Fear of Death

August 25, 2018

Fear of death is a universal fear. Almost everyone is afflicted with it, including many seekers. In this talk, we analyze it. We find that this fear has more complicated reasons other than simply a fear of disappearance of the body. We can classify them as pre-death and post-death fears. Once we know what they are, we can try out some solutions for them. We do not want to get rid of the fear of death completely, we only ensure that it is seen for what it is, as an illusion, and ensure that it does not become a cause of suffering. Death is a necessity, but excessive fear of it is optional.

Laws of mind: 12 - Interconnectedness Part 2

Laws of mind: 12 - Interconnectedness Part 2

August 16, 2018

There are interesting effects of interconnectedness, such as unexplainable phenomena or so called extraordinary abilities of the mind. When seen from the point of view of the law of interconnectedness, these events appear normal and most natural. When this knowledge is crystallized in a mind, the mind drops its illusory boundaries and experience of oneness is gained in various forms. An evolved mind is the one where no separation is perceived. That mind sees itself as one with everything. This is the part two of two of the talk on the law of interconnectedness.

Laws of mind: 12 - Interconnectedness Part 1

Law of interconnectedness arises out of the oneness of all that is. The unity of all is seen as a connection, among everything and everyone. The mind divides the oneness into many, and also creates an illusion of separation between itself and everything else. When we take a closer look, these illusions are destroyed. Oneness is beyond mind, therefore the mind can only find a hint of it in unexplainable interconnectedness among the illusory parts. This is the part one of two of the talk on the law of interconnectedness.

Laws of mind: 11 - Perfection

Laws of mind: 11 - Perfection

August 13, 2018

The law of perfection points to the necessity that everything is perfect as it is. In other words, nothing can be added or taken away from the way things are. That may sound counter to our own experience, but that is because we have biases and preferences. In itself the universe is pure perfection, including our ignorance and biases, they are the way they must be. This law is very powerful, it has the potential to liberate a mind from Samsaric wheel in a few minutes.

Laws of mind: 10 - Self Similarity

Laws of mind: 10 - Self Similarity

August 2, 2018

The law of self similarity derives from the fractal nature of the reality.

Everything is arranged in layers and each one is a low resolution copy of the one above it. When we study this law and experience it directly, we open up to the possibility of there being more layers on top of that which we think is "me".

The law makes us tiny and humble. This law shows that there is no end to seeking, when you explore all that which can be experienced. Your search must take you inwards not outwards, and then you will see that you are one all encompassing unity, having no structure and no layers of any kind.
