  1. Haiku Chain

    fireworks inside sparks of inner radiance being bursting forth

    fog on the hillside specter of a primal dance emptiness made known

    Sorry, this is simply how my mind works and not intended in any nefarious way it could be construed, but wouldn't the video game analogy be one such "perceptional framework" with the stated potential to "obscure the underlying primordial"?

  5. What happens to suicides?

    That's one hell of a discussion you had with yourself - soo many measuring sticks. What would happen if you let the measuring sticks go? What do things look like without the comparisons and ideals? Could this suffering be maintained without the internal dialogue feeding it? I second CT's call to kindness and compassion - particularly towards yourself.
  6. Tantra...

    And what do you mean (or what are you referring to) when you use the phrase "energy body"? Corporeal form? Or perhaps the concepts collated to form an idea of "self"? Both would fit with the idea of "as it burns away," and I'm finding I honestly don't know what you're referring to. Of course I could pretend, but I'd rather ask than assume.
  7. Tantra...

    Wouldn't a new galaxy be predominately "dark" - with points of burning light, just as Sadhguru highlighted in the video? And wouldn't even a quasar be a point of burning light in vast darkness? Are we attached to the idea/ concept of light to the exclusion of observable conventional reality? In what manner do you wish this idea of light to be understood? What is "light" to you?
  8. Tantra...

    I'm not sure how I feel about the phrase "really is," but agree with the sentiment expressed. Is your primordial equivalent to the author's ultimate? And is your primordial somehow separated from it's expression in form? Where would the separation (if it exists in your paradigm and isn't a misunderstanding of your paradigm on my part) occur?
  9. Tantra...

    Form is what we perceive, and whatever we perceive is empty. Empty. Through the two eyes of valid cognition. Probably not.. I would start with the indivisibility of form and emptiness. Joyful smiles and much love to you Jonesboy.
  10. Tantra...

    And the quasar has been a limited event in the process of change. This statement itself lends to the idea of "limited happening."
  11. Tantra...

    It's emptiness even in arising form. And I'm currently contemplating how emptiness would even be recognized, discovered, what have you, without form.. Perhaps we're using and/or understanding the word "emptiness" differently?
  12. Tantra...

    When the surrounding material has been burned through (rather literally) the quasar ceases to be a "quasar" - making it an (extremely large) "limited happening."
  13. Is the information about the Jesuits included in this book, and are they using the term "rainbow body", or some other terminology?
  14. A cursory search of "rainbow body sufism" brought up a link to "body of resurrection", and many links with "sufism" struck through as search criteria about Tibetan Buddhism. A search of "rainbow body sufi" yielded the same results. A search including "tamil" instead of either variant of Sufi yielded a link to the following book which looks somewhat interesting: Rainbow Body and Resurrection: Spiritual Attainment, the Dissolution of the Material Body, and the Case of Khenpo A Chö
