If you have read my last post “swallowing the sun” and if you have digested it, then a few disconcerting facts should be apparent:
1. All that you have ever experienced about the world is nothing other than electro-chemical code transmitted to your brain and somehow “experienced”
2. You have no idea what “reality out there” really is.
3. What you experience of the unknown reality is in fact your imagination, the light of the sun, the scent of the rose, all of it is within you, and always was.
Now, hold on to your hats because here comes the chaser!
If it is true that the color of the rose, its perfume, the softness of its petals, the sharpness of its thorns, everything you can say about it, is a creation in your mind which results from the stimulation of your nervous system, then it is also true for any other part of reality, be it the mountain, the sun, or your own body.
All you know about your finger nail, is what is transmitted to your mind by your eyes, your skin, your nerves. All you know about your arm is the same. Right?
So, logically and rationally, all you can ever know about your nervous system is what is transmitted to your brain by your nervous system.
In other words there is no more reality to your nervous system, or your brain, than there is to the rose, or the sun.
In other words, your body is also in your mind, and so is your brain. Your brain is just another type of flower in your mind.
So, the idea that when you look at the flower or the light bulb, light somehow “enters” into a “body” that is you and stimulates electrochemical signals along “nerves” into your “brain” creating a vision of reality “out there” is complete non sense.
Logically and rationally, there is no “out there” as there is no “in here”, there is no “unknown reality” that we cannot really see or know, because there is no “we” to experience it!
I know, this is strong stuff.
Your body, brain is a part of your mind, just as the light bulb is, just as the sun is, just as the rose is, just as reality is.
There is no difference between “you” and “reality”, they are one and the same!
There is no duality, no object and no subject.
No “I” and no “You”
Only that which we call mind or consciousness.
This is called the Illumination of the Heart by the Sun.
