Enlightenment Is Your Nature

Enlightenment is your natural state.  Do not seek for it elsewhere.  But “go within” to experience it.
🙂

Painting of Yogini Copulating with Boddhisattva


Look into the awakened mind of your own awareness! It has neither form nor color, neither center nor edge. At first, it has no origin but is empty. Next, it has no dwelling place but is empty. At the end, it has no destination but is empty. This emptiness is not made of anything and is clear and cognizant. When you see this and recognize it, you know your natural face. You understand the nature of things. You have then seen the nature of mind, resolved the basic state of reality and cut through doubts about topics of knowledge.

This awakened mind of awareness is not made out of any material substance; it is self-existing and inherent in yourself. This is the nature of things that is easy to realize because it is not to be sought for elsewhere. This is the nature of mind that does not consist of a concrete perceiver and something perceived to fixate on. It defies the limitations of permanence and annihilation. In it there is no thing to awaken; the awakened state of enlightenment is your own awareness that is naturally awake. In it there is no thing that goes to the hells; awareness is naturally pure. In it there is no practice to carry out; its nature is naturally cognizant. This great view of the natural state is present in yourself: resolve that it is not to be sought for elsewhere.

Tarot Mysticism

Sampling of Tarot Cards

The Tarot cards are more than a deck of playing cards for human entertainment!

The Tarot cards actually constitute a book of mystical wisdom teachings and profound spiritually transformative messages coded or hidden in visual graphic symbolism and allegorical imagery. Through this system of esoteric symbolism and imagery, the Tarot’s system of mystical wisdom is cloaked from the minds of the uninitiated, unprepared or undeserving.

Furthermore, the visual coding of its wisdom teachings has a subtle yet highly effective manner of penetrating the unconscious levels of the human mind, where the seed messages can take root and germinate over time. Then, when the time is ripe in consciousness, the mystical teaching will come to the fore of the individual’s conscious awareness where its truth can be finally recognized and learned.

Essentially, the Tarot’s major arcana is about the spiritual journey we take through life from the personal perspective of an individual — from the spiritual ignorance of human innocence to mastery of the spiritually adept. It is, also, the paradigm for the evolution of human awareness from its current state in the human condition to the destiny of the human species in the spiritual enlightenment of its innate divinity.

The video below is an excellent presentation and discussion of the Tarot’s esotericism. You can view the video below in its entirety (the first video below), or you can go through a playlist of its segments, a serialized format (the second video) at YouTube. The video’s producer, Robert Bonomo, has done a superb job deserving of praise and compliment.

An Invocation to Krishna

Painting of Krishna teaching Arjuna

On Wednesday, 20 March 2019, the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation (BMCM) satsang group in San Jose adopted a divinely-inspired opening invocation for its weekly meetings.

The invocation is a beautiful prayer in itself that revolves around the divine promise given by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita to his devotees.

I invite you to recite the invocation aloud or silently before you do your meditation or contemplation, before your spiritual readings and studies, or at the start of any human activity or undertaking for which you want God’s blessings.

Here is a personalized version of the 2-part invocation (recollection and response).

RECOLLECTION:
Krishna said: “…you shall come to me; this I promise; for you are dear to me.”

RESPONSE:
I come to your presence, Krishna. Bring me now into your light and wisdom.



Read our blog at The Mystical Path for more information about the invocation. For information regarding the BMCM satsang group, check out some relevant articles at our business site.

Loop Me In

Louis Armstrong: "What a Wonderful World"

It’s the kind of music I wouldn’t mind being perpetually looped in.

Keep me in its continuous playback, and never ever stop the playback device please… even when I die.
😍

Thanks to RoundMidnightTV for posting the music video on YouTube.


What a Wonderful World” [1970 Spoken Introduction Version] along with Oliver Nelson’s Orchestra is a song written by Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1968. Thiele and Weiss were both prominent in the music world (Thiele as a producer and Weiss as a composer/performer). Armstrong’s recording was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, who was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.

          “Some of you young folks been saying to me
          “Hey Pops, what you mean ‘What a wonderful world’?

          How about all them wars all over the place?
          You call them wonderful?

          And how about hunger and pollution?
          They ain’t so wonderful either.”

          Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute.
          Seems to me, it ain’t the world that’s so bad
          but what we’re doin’ to it.

          And all I’m saying is see what a wonderful world
          It would be if only we’d give it a chance.
          Love baby, love. That’s the secret, yeah.
          If lots more of us loved each other
          We’d solve lots more problems.
          And then this world would be gasser.

          That’s wha’ ol’ Pops keeps saying.”

          I see trees of green, red roses too
          I see them bloom, for me and you
          And I think to myself
          What a wonderful world

          I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
          The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
          And I think to myself
          What a wonderful world

          The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
          Are also on the faces, of people going by
          I see friends shaking hands, sayin’, “How do you do?”
          They’re really sayin’, “I love you”

          I hear babies cryin’, I watch them grow
          They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know
          And I think to myself
          What a wonderful world

          Yes, I think to myself
          What a wonderful world
          Oh yeah!

Thank you, Louis, for being a wonderful man in a wonderful world. Oh, yeah!
