Each section will have 3 functions, indented differently (you see that I work from outline in). My idea is now this:
Each section will have a) quotes, poems, sayings that impart it's wisdom, b) practical exercises that allow one to manifest the wisdom of that section, c) writings and commentary on that section.
For example, the Obrahmtala section might have something like:
The all experiencing itself is wrapping around to view itself being the seen seeing the seer.
Mind your wants because someone wants your mind.
When you are at the precipice before the highest, careful to not look down!
"Mind over matter, if you don't mind, it don't matter."
The unified field, the conscious all, can never be described in words because as soon as you name (and claim) it, it will move on as a necessity of itself's function of being unknowable.
Remember back to before the conflicts, when everything was in order and peaceful. Remember that a peaceful clear frame of mind is truly the only goal. Make effort to see how you keep your clear mental pictures even when dealing with negative environments and people, notice how things sometimes 'bring you down,' and how you 'keep yourself up.' Being 'in the world but not of it' is keeping your pure thoughts and feelings amid the firey madness, but mentaly not stepping out of the sacred circle; you can stay true to your blessed peace of mind.
Many scriptures and great works are known by their commentaries rather than the works themselves. We only know by 'word of mouth' what Jesus Christ is supposed to have said. Like the kids game 'telephone,' by the time what was said has been repeated a few times it often means something totally different!
Soji a guitarist friend said that when he wanted to learn guitar, he moved in with his teacher. This is the true method of learning, being with the teacher. No amount of written tradition can compete with oral tradition, or simply being with the teacher. In transmitting information it loses things in the translatioin.
Music, group meditation, group activities, these allow true connection with each other, and we can learn much more. The highest truths are not best when articulated, but when picked up 'by osmosis' when one is genuinely open and in the presence of wisdom.
In the clearest awareness is a peace and innate knowingness. The 'fruit of knowledge' takes us from this purity and innocence, but it is necessary to 'fall from grace' and learn how these languages try and communicate truths. This is lowering oneself from the allness, but is a necessary duty. Key is awareness of the lowering, and consciousness of the 'way back.'
So do you see how it has a) quick insights, b) physical practices, then c) commentaries. This is how each section will be filled in, and for starters I just 'fleshed in' some of the first section. When I fill in some of the Ochun section, which I am really looking forward to, I will reprint the whole series with the filled in parts, so we can see how the whole thing is coming together.
By the way, the main obstacle to my continuing this project right now, is my intense beurocratic problems with government agencies - I am STILL waiting for december checks! I have under $10 in the bank, but at the same time I am underway to consolidate all my debts and soon be a 'free person' who doesn't have to worry about finances with such criticality. Ya-hoo! But meanwhile I am very frazzled and having self-worth issues, forgive me.
Because you all are so heavenly supportive and interested, I shared this with you today. More coming soon! Thanks for saying you are interested. This really makes me happy, and motorvated to do more!
Love n light, Teo
