  1. Gospel of Thomas

    @Jeff Pointing the mind directly at the object of focus, instead of contemplating it and mulling it over.
  2. Gospel of Thomas

    There. Verse 7 When you are in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do? Verse 22 Yeshua said to them, When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter the kingdom. Pointing instructions. This is this. Just get it!
  3. Gospel of Thomas

    Sorry my quoting kung fu is weak now. I think that this quote Jesus said, "This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. pertains to this passage in 1st corinthians 15 12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
  4. Rainbow Body....a matter of karma?

    Do you know what uses it has while you work towards your death and rebirth? Have you tried going to a buddhahall and doing some prostrations and calm abiding?
  5. Video on Tibetan Rainbow Body

    Fr. Francis Tiso gives some interesting insight upon this subject.
  6. Video on Tibetan Rainbow Body

    Mind is the 6th element...always look within. Anger Akshobhya body is blue as is the light caused by bodhichitta. Bodhicharayavatara chapter 6 Finding its fuel in discontent originating from an undesired event and from an impediment to desired events, anger becomes inflamed and destroys me. Therefore, I shall remove the fuel of that enemy, for that foe has no function other than to harm me
  7. Sahaja and wu wei

    If I read it fast enough I can hear the rhythm behind the rhymes. Of course they sound totally different in Sanskrit or the mother tongue. The prana gets to now.
  8. The twilight language of the charyagiti

    Good discovery. The 3 metals/elements are accurately described as mind body and soul, or the triple jewel. The usage of the triple jewel would imply a higher level of practice where the meditator would be working with people instead of their own personal aggregates. Peacocks are natures radar stations. If you look at the geometry of the males plumage you can see that it is a parabolic reflector and the crown is the receiver.
  9. The Kusum lIngpa had a sutra that talks about her.. a royal genealogy amusing to hear is what I recall it being called. Padmasambhava is described as a marmot and she is an eagle on high. If you know how to read it the symbology used become clear. It is a pretty funny account.
  10. A couple years ago I had a thought to correlate the 3 temples of Solomon with the 3 Dan Tiens. Seems possible and interesting, but you gotta figure out what problems/sufferings you are going to heap upon yourself to transform them into a higher consciousness. If you want access to the molten sea join the LDS church.

  12. One

    Even in the quietest moments we strive for this. We are in competition for the single most important thing in our life. At all times it is within our grasp but we are blinded by our culture, our expressions, and our needs. Since it's acquisition is most important in our daily existence we strive for it in all things. It is more than just a momentary high or quick thrill. It is the result of an exhaustive search and eternal competition to be.
  13. Time Traveling

    I swear that I have seen the Saturn Astra...I have. Who was the marketing genius that named it that? I had been studying the spiritual connection between Oppenheimer and Bose when I came across one of these. I thought that reality had done a cosmic joke because I was thinking about Astra's and such. Oh look there even is a car named as one. Too many Astra's Astra Astra Everywhere Astra Astra for everyone everywhere.
  14. Celestial Amusement

    Keep watching it! It teaches Ba Gua. The continual movement of the red spot is the very core of a Ba Gua style. The little storms that appear and move within the spherical fluid of the planet's upper atmosphere will reveal changes in the two sets of trigrams. stirs the cinnabarrefinement of the elixir takes time. The Bat Immortal hitches a ride. Rakshasa's consider the pit as they tend their horse. Wolf howls in the distance, and the owl does not give a whoot.
