What to do

Because we are lost in our reality, in our identity identified with what we experience, we must take measures to get beyond this fateful condition of ours. For our true destiny, we must align with and present to a whole or true self who is the whole being and whole body.

Here is an outline of how to introduce reality.

Step 1    Stop what you are doing. Make a place and time for this. You will be addressing the ongoing nature of your human condition in its sense of doing, knowing, determining and judging.

Step 2    Promote the whole body and, as you become familiar with what happens in relating with the whole body, promote what happens (1). A good reference I use for an integrated whole body is a level brain, vertical spine and even nerve roots from the spine that impregnate every part of the whole body. Practical physical steps are – square you head level over your shoulders, extend the spine, come on top of yourself, and get your other-end and haunch underneath it all, if sitting (you’ll have to “gather yourself” around the pelvis), and get your legs under that if standing.

Step 3    Then stop again. Even in an endeavour to promote and approach our whole, we must realise our limitation as a projected part; we are not the definitive entity, what we perceive or sense is at best an indication, and our intensions are not directly connected to reality or the whole body in reality. We must make an effort, to promote the whole body and to approach our whole, for otherwise we remain isolated in the human condition with our sense of doing and what we think we are doing. But then stop.

Step 4    Stop to relate with the whole body – who is there. As the sages may point out or at, reality has always been there, so why bother? There is no point, everything is in vain, within our projected reality, all is experience. My contribution is that beyond pointing at, we can understand (and be cognisant) that the whole body is reality, for us in projection as his/her projected part, and that the whole body is our source. Rather than something to get, get to or have, consider a relation with a whole body and his/her integration in you becoming a part.

We should be in awe and wonderment, as a babe is, of our bodies moving in accordance with our intentions. Even as this “normalises” or becomes familiar we should nurture the mystic or intuitive appreciation of our sense of doing manifesting in the whole body, from the whole body’s action in reality. All too often, in schooling, work and routine we are drilled into a fateful bind of identity identifying with I did it, I’m doing it and I haven’t done it yet, when it is the whole body who actually does. Our part and our relation with our whole is lost.

Stop to relate with the whole body is a special act, as the whole body is a special entity for us, as his/her projected part. Slow as a distracting or isolated part may be more apt. Rather than a conscious stop, it is like the “non action” or “wu wei” of Daoism, the way, or the Nothingness of Zen and the unknowing of Christian mysticism. I believe most human cultures have some footing in this universal gateway to reality, Nature or God.

Do not be corrective as such. Rather it is what is there presented to relate with the whole being who must be there. Understand that we come from projection and the whole being of whom we are a part is our source and the only entity in reality for us to relate with and be touched by. Our isolation and our occupation and diversion within projection has been for a long time, both individually and for countless generations, repeated in the billions of us on Earth, and set in our cultures and language. However, nothing is denied and everything of our reality encompassed as parts, by a whole self in reality. The whole body encompass more as parts, the heart’s pumping, bowels motility and secretions etc. Things that as an identity we are conscious of, may be conscious of and cannot be conscious of, the whole body is there beyond them all that pertain to us as a projected part.

And what to do can be applied in meditation, exercise, yoga, any performance, but life and everyday mundane acts and involvement (in going to sleep and awakening too). Consider yourself and what you experience as a distracting part (a cheeky, lazy, serious, uptight or cool one perhaps) to the whole who allows. Our fateful isolating bind in our reality changed, according to a true destiny as part of our whole, through our will in relating with our whole.

(1) We become a bigger part and more of a part as we integrate/are integrated with previously disassociated parts, and the whole becomes more an integrated whole. Our relation with our whole remains mystic and unknowing, and not something to grasp or have – a flux between more than one part, similar to dealing at the same time with distracting parts or multiple realities, except the self and all its realities, parts or distractions are being encompassed by their whole.

compilation: of the “Mind’s spread and cornering, centred to the right”

Here is the compilation I mentioned in the previous post. I have put it together as part of my hope and undertaking to convey at least something of the projected actuality of the human condition (hc). This is what I think  the starting point is, in capturing the hc and relating with reality, the whole body alive in creation. I want to follow it up with more of these compilations on my posts.

Please let me know what you think about it and if you would, tell me how it seems for you.

It is a funny, awkward topic, the hc and reality. It is my stuff, yet I think it applies to everyone. It draws us into the “self referencing conundrum”. Serious stuff. “Orientation” to our reality, including the world and self, as a “projected” part of (created and placed by) the whole body , discriminates our self from a whole self or whole being, and our virtual reality from reality (of whole entities present in the present, solid in gravity, and alive in creation).

You, the blogging community, have been inspirational and supportive in putting forth my understandings and ways. Not only does the opportunity to read and write with you, help to formulate ideas and express them better, but I feel somehow there is a real mind and a consciousness that has developed my conscience, and my understanding of my place in the world. I know you are real people, but through text, the screen and the icons, I feel we truly relate. Often there are feelings, understandings and thoughts that are hard to share. I thank you for a place where they can be put to words – and pictures!
Some of you may like to check out my first post – “The human condition is centred right” Aug13.

Centred to the right is covered in more detail in the Introduction and Chapter i of “Orientation ch i – v” available on the menu.

Mind’s spread and cornering, centred to the right

“facing and lined-up with the world out there” - cornered off with the conscious reigning from above, and the mind identity coming across from the mid-line toward facing the front (world out there)

“facing and lined-up with the world out there” – cornered off with the conscious reigning from above, and the mind identity coming across from the mid-line toward facing the front (world out there)

I have been compiling a series of art works on “the mind’s spread and cornering centred right”. It is where we line-up with and face the world out there (depicted with circles). This is a part of my ongoing attempt to better communicate and share my understandings and ways of the human condition and reality. If you have not been to my blog before, my hope is that the works may invoke at least something of the ephemeral entities that they represent, and lend some sway towards awakening our relation with the whole being in creation of whom we all individually belong to as a projected part. I will post the recent paintings here, and follow with the compilation in the next.
