I would like to share a little writing which demonstrates correspondences for Eastern terms and concepts with more elaborately explained concepts/design. This was inspired by a description of how the Universe came/comes into existence by John Lily, and I thought of the correspondences. There is more you could do, with various spiritual systems, but here is what I have for now.

Before Beginning(of Time/Space): Sunyata(emptiness/void)
From void Came Brahma(Growing/Choosing-God)
Then Self(Atman) was realized; Consciousness-Without-Object
Then the first notion of an Object arose; Unity(of time/space), 1
Then polarity arose, which would always equal out to 0, all the way up to infinity.

That which becomes all experiences: Brahma
That which is the experience itself: Vishnu
Spontaneous creation & destruction of every reality/moment from Void: Shiva
Sensual-Body: Soma

Samsara stems from Nirvana. Nirvana is not attained through Samsara. Samsara is an illusion which the conceptual mind continuously creates. It never departs from Nirvana, because it is not “real.” The moment you object to this concept, and begin to conceptualize, you are back at work creating Samsara. You’re never departing from Nirvana; this is impossible. It is only through Nirvana that Samsara can be created. Note how this is the opposite of the way this issue is typically approached. Samsara is effort, Nirvana is effortless. This is why Karma permeates all of Samsara. Karma is intentional action. It is an active process, and through this active process Samsara comes into existence.

Imagine that you are running. This running is an intentional effort. The moment you stop running, you are still. Stillness is the natural state. It does not take intentional effort to be still. You stop making intentional effort to run, and you are still. This is how it is with Samsara and Nirvana, illusion and reality. I say “illusion,” but I do not mean this in a derogatory sense. Nirvana expresses itself through the infinite manifestations of Samsara.

Many Spiritual types place great emphasis on shedding illusion, finding the “truth,” which naturally opposes what is “false.” This discrimination is of the same conceptual mind that brings about the “illusion” in the first place! They are missing their own truth, by being so caught up in separating themselves from “illusion.” You see, Nirvana expresses as Samsara. Samsara is inherent in Nirvana. So when you really grasp the “truth,” you see the non-dual, and all discrimination ends. This opens up true freedom, which is why enlightenment is called liberation. Now everything is just a big play, or experiment. When you see “All as One,” as the common expression goes, you are free to participate in any aspect of reality you would like. You don’t become attached to any particular aspect either, because that doesn’t make sense either, in light of this Truth which has no opposite. Now you can float through eternity, playing with the infinite amount of potential causes and effects.

Are you out there?

Timothy Leary is my absolute icon. There are some others who I absolutely love as well, that I truly feel ‘get it.’ In the course of my reading, as I contemplated and became more and more knowledgeable on all of these issues, I found a few other people who were among my idols, most favorite authors. After some time of reading these people, I came to find out that they were all published by one Publishing Company. That was “New Falcoln Publications,” you guys. My dream is to be an author, and it would be my absolutely perfect fantasy if I could get published by the same Company as Timothy Leary. Now, despite the fact that you published other authors who are among among my favorite, they do not mean as much to me as Timothy Leary. I feel that he is perhaps the most brilliant mind of all time. It is unbelievable to me that he gets so little recognition, in terms of real respect. Despite this, I know the best time for his legacy is still ahead of us. These men, especially Leary, were intelligent far beyond their time. Here’s the kicker, though. They’re still far ahead of the times today! As our Intelligence Increases(I^2), we will more and more recognize their incredible genius, and their work will be the guideposts along further development of knowledge and wisdom.

I hope to carry on this tradition. I have thoroughly studied, and seriously considered believing for myself, many different systems of thought. This ultimately led me to a sort of undeniable truth of the paradox. Nothing is true, therefore all things are on an equal plane of truth. “Reality Tunnels.” Timothy Leary said something along the lines of “Truth is what is subjectively true based on the wiring of the nervous system.” An open embrace of the unknown, the chaos, is clearly the guiding principle of a whole new dimension of evolution. This evolution is, of course, the activation of Post-Terrestrial Circuits of Consciousness. We now have the means, particularly the communicative technology, required to empower the masses as Reality-Creators, preparing for migration off the womb-planet. Various other scientific and technological advancements are being made, particularly quantum-physics, Neurology, the Genetic Code, imprinting(not necessarily widely accepted, in terms of accepting the imprinting theory on humans, although it is accepted with animals) of the Nervous System, especially aided through usage of certain drugs, and last, and perhaps most importantly, the Internet. The Internet is perhaps the most important invention in the history of mankind, and I am proving that now seeing as I am e-mailing the Publishing Company that published my idol, Timothy Leary, along with an attachment to a PDF file of a sort of mini-book, “The Journey”(TheJourney being my primary online name), which comes with all sorts of amazing images, colors, and fonts. If this all works out, and I am able to become successful like I know I should, it will be an absolute testament to the new Medium, the Internet. I will do everything in my power to progress Human Thought.

So I have been writing a lot, for quite some time now. I have written so much about so many different topics. Recently, my intelligence and creativity and motivation has just been off the roof. Everything is coming together so quickly, and I know that this is all meant to be. Everything works out in such a way, that the timing is undeniable. (Coincidence Control Center(C.C.C.) as I call them in my mini-book) I know it is my destiny to get in the public eye so that I can help humanity advance in incredible ways.

In my reality, there are bread crumbs everywhere. They lead me to who I am, and who I have become, which is my highest idea of perfection. We all have them, and in all of our cases they lead us to our own conception of the same place. There is a reason that you are attracted to what you are attracted to, and that desirable feelings are stimulated by various things in your world. These are sign posts. They have a lot to teach you, and they are put there to help you remember. I lost the trail for a while, or at least it was reduced to a vague understanding of some general direction that I was heading. Funny how a simple moment of clarity can bring about the remembrance of who you are, and where you are going. It can be difficult to give an articulation that I am completely comfortable with. Am I speaking to myself through reality? Is reality speaking to me through itself? I would say my highest self is my reality, and that he/me/it is always delivering the message through various outlets, highlighting different aspects of it as it is appropriate. I feel like the things in my world are leaving me very specific messages, and when I read things that I have wrote in the past, I feel a sense of awe in seeing clearly that the messenger that reaches out to me in my reality is the same messenger that has written what I have written, and who I ultimately am; “I,” in fact, am the most direct manifestation.

This is related to the concept of relativity. Objects only exist in relation to the subject , which is defined through the point of focus. As we focus, the external reality is formulated in relation to that focus. The more “in tune” we are, the more apparent this becomes. This is because we are more at one with our reality, and therefore realities expression is a more clear and direct representation of you.

Buddhism talks about the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. They call this the Triple Gem. It is the perfect unity, that appears in three forms. Reality often is viewed in a way that could be divided into three “parts.” Buddha literally means “The Awoken One.” It cannot be said that Buddha is a person. The historical Buddha himself is recorded as having emphasized this, beyond the further Mahayana writings that make this abundantly clear. Buddha is the great unity. It could be called Buddha Nature. When you speak of “The Buddha” it is referring to the One who has awoken. “He” can be found anywhere in existence. You can either find him, or you can BE HIM. He could be looked at as the great teacher. When you yourself are in touch with “Buddha Nature” you are literally being The Buddha. Yet Buddha Nature never departs from reality, so when you are, for instance, learning from another, or reality itself, this is The Buddha reminding you of the truth.

“The truth” is what is called “The Dharma.” Although the Dharma is often expressed in words, it cannot be said to be the words themselves. It is the truth about reality itself. Therefore, it can be found anywhere in reality. When one speaks the truth, he is speaking Dharma. When you hear Dharma, think Dharma, or speak Dharma, this is the teaching of The Buddha; this is true regardless of whether you’re “being The Buddha” or interacting with The Buddha

Those who are seeking the Dharma/Truth are the Sangha. When you are in communion with another of like mind, he is of the Sangha. You could look at the Sangha as those who are working together to try to end suffering. Suffering is attachment. We seek a universal end of suffering, which is to say universal enlightenment. When we see one who is suffering, and recognize him as a fellow traveler of the Journey towards the end of suffering, we help to unhook him from his attachments, as we seek to do for ourselves. The interacting of the Sangha/Community, Dharma/Truth, and Buddha/Awoken One all come together as the great ONE, the unity of all of existence.
