Richard’s Correspondence on Mailing List ‘B’
with Respondent No. 24
RESPONDENT: The Seer is Aware and flows in the state of At-One-Ment in the nondualistic energy of What Is, of Truth, of Life. At-One-Ment means just that; it flows in the holistic vibration of Infinite Intelligence. It is, as one Brother stated, ‘The Truth, The Life, And The Way’.
RICHARD: Personally, when in a somewhat similar situation some years ago, I found it pertinent to ask myself: Who is the ‘I’ that identifies as ‘The Seer’?
If I were in this position today I would also ask myself: Who is the identity that is ‘At-One-Ment in the nondualistic energy of What Is, of Truth, of Life’?
Then I would go on to question: Is not this ‘What Is, Of Truth, Of Life’, who ‘The Seer’ is at one with, but another set of names for ‘God’?
Then I would realise: Is not ‘God’ but a projection of the ‘self’ – magnified now into a grandiose ‘Self’?
I would discover that any notion of an ‘holistic vibration’ is but a predictable outcome the fatally flawed desire of the ‘I’ to stay in existence by becoming ‘Whole’.
I would go on to understand that an ‘infinite intelligence’ is clearly nothing more than an anthropomorphic projection of one’s own puny little ‘self’ into an omnipotent entity – a ‘Higher Being’ – existing for all eternity.
And finally I would see the appalling error of aligning myself with a ‘Brother’ who pretentiously stated that he was: ‘The Truth, The Life, And The Way’.
RESPONDENT: The thinker compensates for the gross limitations in consciousness by revelling in fanciful theories, speculations, judgments, and interpretations of its own parochially conditioned, memory-based images. In doing so, it thinks itself a god of its own relative world.
RICHARD: Equally, the Seer compensates for the subtle limitations in Consciousness by revelling in fanciful visions, phantasms, chimeras and hallucinations of its own divinely conditioned, calenture-based images. In doing so, it feels itself to be a God of its own absolute world.
RESPONDENT: The thinker is a Thought Projection of the dead mechanical instrument of intellect and operates at the vibratory level of duality based in time-bound images. These images are reflections of a timeless, unbounded, unknowable energy quite beyond the ken of the limited thinker.
RICHARD: Then again, the Seer is an Affective Projection of the fervently automated instrument of pathos and operates at the resonating level of Non-Duality based in Time-less images. These images are but the polar opposites of the time-bound, constricted, knowable personality quite within the ken of the unrestricted feeler.
RESPONDENT: The thinker knows only its own dualistic thought and therefore cannot go beyond itself.
RICHARD: But the Seer knows only its own Non-Dualistic passion and therefore cannot go beyond itself, either.
However, it is never to late to wake up from the divine delusion that one has gotten oneself into. It was an understandable attempt to escape from the secular illusion of being but an ego-bound entity by ‘realising’ oneself to be ‘God’ in disguise ... that ‘timeless, unbounded, unknowable energy quite beyond the ken of the limited thinker’. One can effectively ‘go beyond’ non-duality just as one went beyond duality ... but this time vanishing in ‘my’ entirety. Just as the ego can dissolve, so too can the soul disappear (the second ‘I’ of Mr. Venkataraman Aiyer (aka Ramana) fame). ‘I’ cease to be, period. Then what I am (what, not ‘who’) is this flesh and blood body as an actuality. No sense of identity, no feeling of being whatsoever ... no psychological or psychic entity anywhere at all within or without the body to wreak its havoc.
Needless to say, one has no need of aspiring to become a ‘healthy ego’ ... or a healthy soul.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
