Still Reality

"The universal matrix which we believe to be real and solid is the abnormal condition of Creation.
 
The true reality (aka Cosmic Mind) is Still and Motionless.
All expressions of Creation in this matrix will return to the normal condition at the first available opportunity.
 
If it cannot find a way back to Stillness, a condition will, as a alternative seek a simulated rest condition within the matrix of Creation itself."

Lotus Jewel


I come from secret Amen, 
as precious Jewel of the Sacred Lotus,
emanating divine rays of eternal Love from my heart.

My wisdom spreads in circles of divine light,
enlightened by the the fire of the primordial Spirit.

I come as holy messenger of Divine compassion,
instrument of the sublime Light,  
to illuminate worlds over the seven seas.

I redeem, purify and protect,
I bestow with clarity and deeper understanding, 
in accordance with my divine nature, 
which is indivisible mercy and power in all eternity. 

My word insouls seven heavens; it resounds as mysterious call, 
as sacred song: OM MANI PADME HUM.

Yoga of the Light


„If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.“
(I Corinthians 13)

Yoga of the light means re-connection with the field of primordial light. It encompasses both aspects of the mind and heart, with emphasis on the stronger field of the heart. 

In yoga of the heart magnetic field of the heart tunes with the fundamental love frequency of the greater, primordial light filed.

When mind and heart are tuned to their basic frequencies, thoughts and feelings when arise arise as spectrum of sub-frequencies of those basic ones.

There is no life without light and love. It always was that way and will be.
It is just matter of more and more conscious realization and creative manifestation of them. 

„For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.“
(I Corinthians 13)

Eightfold contemplation


„I bow to the lord who grants the bliss that is utterly supreme;
Which takes away the suffering of illness,
For every being that’s everywhere throughout the reaches of space,
By administering the medicine of the three kayas.

In the pure space of the sky that’s the sky of essential mind itself,
The clouds of negative actions thickly gather;
But the mighty force of the powerful wind of the wisdom prana
Doesn’t blow them away, but clears them up like this.

The illness and its painfulness have neither base nor root;
Relax into it, fresh and uncontrived,
Revealing dharmakaya way beyond all speech and thought;
Don’t shun them, pain and illness are basically good.

What confusion takes to be taking place is negative forces’ work,
But it’s all your own mind, simple, unborn, unceasing;
Without anxiety or even worrying at all;
Don’t shun them, demons and gods are basically good.

When the agony of illness strikes your four-fold elements,
Don’t grasp at its stopping, don’t get angry when it won’t improve;
Such adversities have the flavor of bliss that’s free of contagion’s blight.
These kleshas are not to be shunned, they’re basically good.

All of our joys and the pain we go through, all of our highs and lows,
When realized, have no ground, they are our friends;
Don’t try to stop pain, don’t try to be happy, be free of all hope and fear;
Samsara is not to be shunned, it’s basically good.

And though this human life is plagued by the torments of falling ill,
Don’t think that’s bad, don’t plan to get around it;
Then it will be your badge, your proof of conduct of equal taste.
Your suffering’s not to be shunned, it’s basically good.

The mind that’s sunk in dullness and torpor, when realized for what it is,
Is pure being pure of every imperfection.
So, free of thinking you should be wishing to clear this all away;
Don’t shun your dense state of mind, it’s basically good.

Habitual patterns’ imprints printed throughout beginning-less time
are the myriad doors illusion comes marching through.
If you do not take them as true, don’t meditate on them as empty;
Don’t shun your thoughts, they’re basically good in themselves.

The state of co-emergence has no birth and knows no death;
Knows nothing of arising or ceasing or staying somewhere.

It’s infinity, it’s the vast expanse of the unconditioned state.
Don’t shun your death, it’s basically good in itself."

Seeing with Naked Awareness


"Appearances are not erroneous in themselves, but because of your grasping at them, errors come into existence.

But if you know that these thoughts only grasp at things which are mind, then they will be liberated by themselves.


Everything that appears is but a manifestation of mind.
 

Even though the entire external inanimate universe appears to you, it is but a manifestation of mind.
Even though all of the sentient beings of the six realms appear to you they are but a manifestation of mind.
Even though the happiness of humans and the delights of the Devas in heaven appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though the sorrows of the three evil destinies appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though the five poisons representing ignorance and the passions appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though intrinsic awareness, which is self-originated primal awareness, appears to you, it is but a manifestation of mind.
Even though good thoughts along the way to Nirvana appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though obstacles due to demons and evil spirits appears to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though the gods and other excellent attainments appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though various kinds of purity appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though (the experience) of remaining in a state of one-pointed concentration without any discursive thoughts appears to you, it is but a manifestation of mind.
Even though the colors that are the characteristics of things appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
Even though a state without characteristics and without conceptual elaborations appears to you, it is but a manifestation of mind.
Even though the non-duality of the one and the many appears to you, it is but a manifestation of mind.
Even though existence and non-existence, which are not created anywhere, appear to you, they are but manifestations of mind.
 

There exist no appearances whatsoever that can be understood as not coming from mind."

  From "Self-Liberation through Seeing with Naked Awareness", Padmasambhava
