    Seeing the see-er 

    I’ve been reading Ken Wilber’s book: A brief history of everything.  In the later section of the book when talking about fulcrum 9 he mentions the cyclical nature of existence, of how we transcend birth and death and attain or reach ‘Emptiness’.  Although he does call it ‘full’ because it is ‘Source’ and ‘Essence’ of all creation.  It is ‘that’ from which all that is comes from.

    He calls this ‘state’ precisely that, a ‘state’ because it is neither a place nor does it have a location inside or outside of our ‘selves’. He doesn’t go as far as calling this ‘Emptiness’: ‘Soul’ yet I am assuming that this is the ‘state-being’ which he refers to.

    He speaks of rising above the stage of  subtle  ‘being’ to ascend into the ‘causal’ state.  It seems that when achieving this stage  of ‘Being’ one’s individual identity must meld with all which is ‘not’. Because at this level there is not ‘I’, there is no ‘we’, there is no ‘it’ or ‘its’; there is the state beyond matter, yet we intuit it to be a state of being nonetheless.  When we associate our causal state as being pre-matter, a constant of energy and emptiness and space. Can we give identity to -God- that is the totality of what is, what has been, and what will be eternally and infinitely, beyond time and space, containing energy, matter, dark or otherwise, imbued with a consciousness which contains all and which transcends all.

    I am a being of divine love 

    I am a being of Divine Love and Intent formed into a Man/Woman body with an intelligent Mind capable of thoughts and emotions. I am Soul trapped within a Substance/Form from which I create my Heaven or my Hell. I am That I am.
    I am Energy/Essence and Light able to express itself through the WORD.
    My Soul evolves or devolves as I either spiral upwards and inwards towards my inner God or as I become distracted,outward and downward into lower Nature.
    It is the idea of separateness and Self which removes us from Heaven. Hell is defined as having lost one’s way home. The parable of the Prodigal Son defines Hell.
    His return defines the way to Heaven. The Buddha showed us the Middle Way, the path of moderation and non-excessiveness. The Christ showed us the meaning of the Word and the Heart. Remorse begets forgiveness and Love. Through Free Will there is a relinquishing of Self to the concept of Love of Others seen as The Path which reclaims Freedom and restores Heaven within.
