Early on, in Greek thought and Oriental thought (Indian thought was a bit more complex), humans thought atoms were the smallest thing that existed (the word in several languages means or suggests "indivisible"). In the last century, we have moved through a number of deeper levels to smaller and smaller particles. In those early days… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness as the Source of All
Its strange, (if we practice "being present in the moment"), how sometimes the most common of events can cause a huge shift in the way we see things........ and can cause a domino effect through our awareness...... (This required no drugs, alcohol or other mind altering substances...... just practicing attention and presence of mind..... )… Continue reading Sentience
So a Pulling Apart is the first step in Oceanic Awareness bringing the Physical World into being. This Pulling Apart is necessary for any Physical Things to exist. Physical Things necessarily are separate and individual because they exist in only one place and time. To lose this existence in one place and time is to… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness in the form of the Physical World (Level 3)
So Oceanic Awareness is Unity. Oceanic Awareness is Pure Being. And Oceanic Awareness, when it practices Doing (Function) produces Plurality (the basis of the Physical World). All Doing and all Things emerge constantly from Oceanic Awareness. "Just as electricity needs a constant flow to function, so the physical world is constantly emerging from Oceanic Awareness."… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness and the character of Doing (Function) (Level 2)
The character of Oceanic Awareness is Unity. In this Unity, there is no separation into Things. Oceanic Awareness is Rest and No Rest unified...... Things and No Things unified. In a way, one might say that Oceanic Awareness is Pure Being before any Doing begins. This is because this Being....before any Doing, before the emergence… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness – the character of Being (Level 1a)
When all is said and done, all that is, is oceanic awareness. This is Being. The oceanic awareness' function is Doing. The oceanic awareness creates and tears down. The oceanic awareness congeals into forms. This is the physical universe. .... gases, rocks, fire, living things..... The oceanic awareness congeals in the physical universe, and seeks… Continue reading Oceanic Awareness and the Physical Universe (Level 1)
Divinity – a definition Is there something beyond the physical universe? Something we cannot “see”? It seems even science must reach past the seen to the unseen, to explain what exists. Dark matter, and Dark energy, and black holes are all examples of this “reaching beyond” the seen for explanations..... In religion, this is represented… Continue reading Divinity – a definition
Quantum Monism seems to be some scientists method of saying that there is an underlying system to the universe(s??) The struggle of western science with admitting an underlying system, is truly only due to the creationist folks, (who take any sign of a "designer" as proof of an anthropomorphic "God", and then kidnap scientific information… Continue reading Quantum Monism – Aha!!
Below is the world view which i have concluded (for myself) is the way to see ourselves and our relationship to ourselves, each other, the universe, and Oneness: "Home" is “located” inside of "me", and inside of all beings and things, while that being has breath; while that thing has mass, and is in space… Continue reading Expanding our concepts of “God”
In my “inner research project” i am primarily interested in “our true nature”. So, my favourite question is: “what is left after all the illusory layers have been peeled away” (revealing what is left, which should be true nature).... and the question which arises from this is: “is metta truly naturally being revealed by this… Continue reading Is Loving-kindness (Metta) a natural part of our True Nature?
