There’s a whole being of reality
who projects our reality,
through his or her CNS (Central Nervous System)
or the brain, spinal cord and nerve roots.
Presentation 004 Poem Straight up 2b
There’s no whole self, for us being a part
not within our part, for he or she is our whole;
not for us directly, to experience or relate,
yet he or she pervades our part
for he or she is our whole.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (3c)There’s no whole self, for us being a part
reflective as we front, what leaves us hollow behind;
represented reality reels forth, our inner rear,
sheared split, our outside and in
both within our whole’s projection.

There’s a whole being of reality
who projects what represents
him or her, in us as self, and
the rest of reality, in what we experience.Presentation 004 Poem Straight up 3c

 

Our whole being, beyond our reality
must, our transcendent maker, in reality be, for us to be
and to be, to be, touched by our whole; not direct
but in relation with, within projection, as a part.

Our whole being, present in the present
as separate parts, projects, our here and now
and past, our self and others, our spaces and
our worlds, extensions and our beyonds, inside and out.

Whole being, whole self, whole body are one
touched by the rest of creation and spirited at core,
the one essence of, his or her whole being and
reality in its entirety, creation, or All-Creation-God.

The human condition – what I’ve worked out of it

I’ve tried to make the introduction flow, and make the points that follow more complete. I’ve added a section on Meditation, Actuality and Whole being, implying steps towards being a part of reality from identified in what we experience. Yet to present the physical references, movement and exercises.

If I can start with the Central Nervous System (CNS). You may be familiar with the idea that the brain creates, or at least is involved in creating, what we experience. Vision, for example, is processed in the brain from information received by the eyes and “projected”, for us to experience.

But what about our self, having the experience?

Many find it difficult, including scientists and philosophers, to accept the self as being made by the brain, or by anything else for that matter. It challenges our sense of autonomy and independence, of being “in control” as the definitive entity rather than being “controlled by”, and choosing to make a difference and shape our destiny. Do we need to separate the self (subject) from experience (object) and consider their origins separately? (Easy or hard question of the consciousness, Chalmers 1986.)

We can wind this back to the start and question in the first place, whether the brain creates anything at all. Strictly speaking, the activity detected in the brain with MRI scans may only be “para-phenomena” – that they coincide with (or parallel) the “events” in our reality (that we observe) but do not necessarily cause them. Is there a basis or a creator to the self and what we experience, or are we just what is?

Let me put aside these issues, about what is created or not (i.e, fundamental and irreducible in themselves) and what the CNS does or does not do, to make this point : that there is no brain without a living whole being. We can consider then our whole being to be the basis of our reality, including the self.

It means our whole creates our reality and projects it through the CNS. Projection is the role that the CNS plays in the manifestation of our reality. The whole self or being is the definitive entity of reality. We, as projection, are a part of our whole being.

Normally, we think “I’m it” and “that’s the world out there”, that we are the “definitive entity” and the world we experience is reality. We function well enough in this familiar way. Yet, unless we keep ourselves busy, occupied (with something) or diverted (away from the rest, as in occupational and diversional therapy), there’s also a sense of incompleteness or that there must be more. Certainly there’s uncertainty, and plenty of occasions and reasons for anxiety or depression.

I do not wish to deny anything of our self and what we experience, nor draw us beyond boundaries best accepted, outside or within. But a part is simply invalid, apart from it’s whole. We are displaced from our whole in being projected, and isolated from our whole as we identify, in our self and with what we experience, within projection.

Our reality is a part. All that can be of our reality, of “conscious experience and self witnessed”, is projection. Till we learn to be a part of who encompasses and permeates our all, we remain isolated in our part, lost from our whole. All directions are in vain, as we grasp at our fleeting moments in avoidance of this, our truth.

Our whole being includes both the solid body and projection, is more than their sum, and is in and of reality. In ouractuality”, the existence of our reality as projection, we can be in relation with our whole, as his or her part. And as a part of our whole being, we are also a part of reality.

_________________________________

Following is a practice, outlined with stepping stones towards our being in relation with our whole. Our notion and sense of reality is not reality. Like a yacht that must “tack” away from the wind of reality and can only zig zag towards it, we talk about and feel what reality “must be like” in an indirect way. In our projected actuality, however, we are aligned directly with our whole as a part. Then, as a projected part, we can refer to reality itself in our whole being and be affected in our relation with our whole.

In a word, the theory is projection.

From projection comes Part theory and Whole body method :
1. Part theory – in our projected actuality we may be “in relation with” our whole. We are validated in this “being in relation with” as a part is by its whole.
Winching (see below in The 5 steps to establish – 4.) : because we are, as a part, limited.
2. Whole body method – we can refer to (core), contemplate (who must be there, who must be more than the sum of his/her parts including those parts projected and solid, who sums), commune with (Nothingness – absence in projection), and connect with (through projection) our whole.

As a part of reality, our whole being is in and of reality (we are in and of projection as a part of our whole being), and spirited (as are all other whole entities in reality) with the one essence of his/her whole being and the entirety of reality (All creation).

We can introduce our whole in prayer (love and compassion, forgiveness and support, to emulate and become, depend and surrender, feel and receive, we can refer to our whole who encompass and permeate all we experience, distance, presence and process), meditation/experiencing (who has the eyes and other sense organs and projects what we experience), posture/exercise (who has a body), work/play/living (who actually is, does and lives).

Physicality (to follow). References, body movement/exercise, relationship.

The 5 steps to establish (stepping stones) :
1. Actuality – there is our actuality, our existence in fact as projection.
2. Whole being – is in and of reality. He or she creates our reality and projects it through the Central Nervous System.
3. How we are shaped or structured in our actuality goes hand in hand with what happens – isolation from our whole to integration as a part, as we “place” our self and our reality in our shaped actuality, like positioning an engineering or architectural block to initiate some structural process (robots in “Transformers”, temple booby traps in an “Indiana Jones’” adventures where the placement of a skull etc causes the whole temple to shift), to be affected by “being in relation with” our whole.
4. What to do – our part to play as a part: 1)Promote our part towards becoming more (in space as projection; see Extension of our part, below) and by approaching our actuality, so as to be “presentable”. 2)Promote the whole being in reality “physically”, from being compromised in maintaining our part in isolation, so that there is something of our whole for us to be “received” by. In our isolation we must make effort (to promote our part and our whole), but then 3) stop (because we are a limited part), to introduce the whole being beyond our self and our limited reckoning and efforts. (To “winch” our way to becoming a part from isolated – promote our part and our whole, stop, refer to our whole, repeat. Repeating is necessary while our relation with our whole establishes because as we shift in our identity, what we experience and the realms or dimension of experience, we tend to re-identify in our new situation.)
5. What it is all about – we become more a part, and our whole becomes more complete with integrating parts. Godly being of reality, spirited at core (unconditional love, God presence), encompassing our all (our self and our sense of others, near and far, and of all times and places we may sense being in or being in touch with) and our part.

Extension of our part :
Consider the world out there, your self having an experience, the witness behind, deeper being below, and the conscious above. These displaced aspects of our reality extend in different directions and in differing distances that imply space in a very direct and immediate way.

This space, including the shapes of our aspects, is actuality, our being projection and a part. Refer to from this, the actuality of our greater part, the whole self and whole being.

References for the “physical” whole being :
– CNS : level, domed and split brain; vertical spine; even nerve roots. Goes with a “complete” (with integrating parts) whole being in alignment with gravity, horizon and the zenith.
– Nothingness : the absence of the whole being and reality from our projected reality. Though as sense it is projected, Nothingness it is the whole being who encompasses and permeates our reality of conscious experience and self.
– Core : the reference for the whole being; of whom his or her solid body and organs, as well as projection are parts. Other end is the clue.
– Notion : The whole being who must be there, in and of reality. More than the sum of the parts. Alive as a part of reality, next to other whole beings. Who must be breathing, doing, alive, being of reality.

Meditation :
– focused : breath, one point, self, whole self, god, a sense, here and now, circle, mirror, light, candle light, movement, uprightness, a direction, numbers.
– mindful observance : allow for conscious experience and self (our reality) to settle as is, into their depth, in face of a transcendent witness.
Actuality :
the matter in fact of our existence as projected in space. Includes the witness and the layers of disassociation towards our subconscious, our outside and inside worlds, the existence of things and the presence of others (what and who we experience) within them (worlds or realms), the conscious, depths, “other side” and “other end”. In the immediate instance we may recognise the world out front, our self back in, the witness behind, deeper being below and the conscious above. The various directions in which these aspects of our reality occur infer space that, together with the space they themselves occupy, is our projected actuality.
Whole being :
refer, contemplate, consider, commune, connect (Whole body method), for being in relation with our whole.

of Whole being, Whole body and Whole self

we
tend to trust what seems certain.

My whole of whom I am a projected part
lives in creation as a part of All creation
and within him I am lost in his projection
Why am I? What do I see? It’s all nothing but
experience, nothing but thee.

In projection I reach and reach experience
but as projection I am touched by who is
and as more than the sum of parts is
the whole entity living of creation
between All creation God and me.

My whole who is a part of reality and its entirety,
he creates my reality I find myself in, I’m afraid
I am one of many, I’m afraid, within my whole who is
the one and only on Earth who is him
as all and so many other wholes in creation.

Within humanity and its segregation, we as identity
in a segregated part of our whole,
must as a part
regard our whole who, as our creator, encompasses
our inside and out, conscious and subconscious
our loneliness and fear, crowded

From google and the wiki
Arianism is the main heresy denying the divinity of Christ, originating with the Alexandrian priest Arius ( circa 250– circa 336). Arianism maintained that the son of God was created by the Father and was therefore neither coeternal nor consubstantial with the Father.

Based on the Gospel of John (14:28)[1] passage: “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.”

In ChristologyLogos (GreekΛόγος logos, that is, “word”, “discourse” or “reason”) is a name or title of Jesus Christ, seen as the pre-existent Second Person of a Trinitarian God. It has been important in endeavoring to establish the doctrine of the divinity and morality of Jesus Christ and his position as God the Son in the Trinity by Trinitarian theologians as set forth in the Chalcedonian Creed.

In contrast to Arianism, the trinitarian viewpoint was formally affirmed by the first two Ecumenical Councils, thereby rejecting the idea that Christ is a distinct personality from the singular Lord of the Old Testament.. All mainstream branches of Christianity consider Arianism to be heterodox and heretical.[citation needed] The Ecumenical First Council of Nicaea of 325 deemed it to be a heresy. At the regional First Synod of Tyre in 335, Arius was exonerated.[2] After his death, he was again anathemised and pronounced a heretic again at the Ecumenical First Council of Constantinople of 381.[3] The Roman Emperors Constantius II (337–361) and Valens (364–378) were Arians or Semi-Arians.

Religion is a belief system. We can think we think and participate in its experience, and so believe and be a part of the experience of believing. Projection however, is our truth that leads beyond it as what is fundamental of our reality – beyond our notion and sense, and so belief and thinking, and experience that may form the basis for our beliefs – to our whole who projects and of whom our projected reality, including our self, is a part.

I like Arianism, but consider the whole body our whole self and whole being, as a godly being as Christians might Christ’s body – the wholly ghost for being beyond our phenomenal and conscious reality and encompassing our all as our whole and creator. As through Jesus, Christians believe they may reach God, we are touched by All creation in our communion with our whole self, for him or her being of creation. We will always be our self, in our conscious and sub-conscious parts of our segmented reality. It is in being projection, in what we are, that we are a part of our whole.

Everything changes

In my early twenties I became conscious of being liberated and free with the notion to not expect anything. There was the simple appreciation of life and existence – beauty in a weed or profundity in a moment or in enacting an act. A lot of it was compensation for disappointment or emptiness. Expect nothing, so as to grasp the moment as it is, to live the moment, or perhaps through and beyond the moment grasped, to find life herself.

Have no expectation would work for a period of time, a day or two, sometimes not long at all. To get there or it, might take moments to hours and sometimes it didn’t work. I had to work at it.

Now I know of the whole body and the spirit, one and present. I understand the “hold on gravity” (the displaced countenance to our projected actuality) and the constant (identity) we pretend to be (in virtuality assuming it to be perpetuity). The hc identified with the wot against the whole body in and of reality, gravity and the present, determines our metaphysical make-up in projection. The hc is invalid in being isolated from its whole, identified with what is experienced rather than who creates and places, or projects, our reality of our self and what we experience.

We and our reality are actuality. They exist, but in and as projection or projected actuality, as projected parts of a whole being in creation, in reality. No constant reference in projection can release our particular settings also in projection.

Even the whole body is easily reduced to a concept or a mantra, a “thing”. The thing itself as is, and its actuality, is beyond understanding, cognition or mind’s grasp. The whole body who is, is there in reality beyond projected actuality, experience, and our sense and notion.

The zen and the gestalt takes one beyond the goal, experience, state, process, and the self – through actuality, reality or the way (Dao) may open. But the basis for everything is the whole body who projects our reality. The spirit one, at the core of every one thing, is the essence of the whole of creation or All creation God. It is the true constant beyond references, a true gravitational presence and life.

emptiness, nothingness and the spirit

Reality, the solid whole body and the rest of creation, is displaced by projection (the whole body creates and places, or “projects” our reality, including the self, from his or her Central Nervous System). Their actuality, of the whole body and creation, disappears from within our projected reality, but manifests by projection beyond our Emptiness as Nothingness. At the centre of Nothingness is the one essence of the whole of creation (All creation) and the whole body, the spirit. It is the closest we get to reality in projection, where the rest of creation that touches the whole body is a long, long way away, at the end of Nothingness. Do not seek but relate with the whole body who encompasses our all and who must be there. And the spirit may reach you, through Nothingness.

emptiness, nothingness and the spirit

Capture“Emptiness” is the disassociation within projection, across which we are ‘having an experience’. It is our immediate environment, the spaces between and around what we experience, the self having an experience, the conscious, deeper being, and witness.
(Kuu of Zen Buddhism)

 

Capture 1“Nothingness” is the absence, due to and in projection, of the solid whole body who is actually there, in and of reality. From where we are having an experience, within projection, the whole body disappears with the rest of creation.
(Mu of Zen Buddhism)

 

I have introduced the spirit as the one essence of All creation and the whole body. As of any experience, we may regard all possible manifestations of the spirit as projection, and refer to the whole body that we and our experience belong to, as projected parts.
