Personal Religious/Spiritual/Philosophic Views on Life/Reality?

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone. This is my first actual topic on this forum, I'll post an Introduction afterwards. 

 

What does your presently held perception of Life/Reality align with? Are you a Stoic who does their best to not fret over things they cannot change? A devotee of Krishna/Allah/Jesus/Other Ascended Masters? A traveller on their way to Self-realization through Buddhist means?

 

If anything, I would have to say mine is one of a pantheistic (meaning 'God' is a force that is all of existence in its totality, but is fragmented as 'soul' in each creation), very intimate, relationship between the Individual and the All. God (All) creating facets of God (Individuals) to better understand and Harmonize with God (the All and the Individual living in perfect accordance, or flow, with one another. This is called following the Dao/Tao in Taoism. The Tao is the mysterious Way of Life).

 

God is the mother and the father, the feminine and the masculine, the light and the dark. All of Life is a stage of Duality between hot/cold, happy/depressed, comfy/restless, etc. God is the grand Unity between all Duality. Things appear terrible and unfair in Life sometimes because a lot of Life is in a constant suffering from attaching to one side of the Duality and trying to pretend the other isn't real. What coin has only one side? We cling to pleasant moments, but then are crippled under the weight of the unpleasant as we try to avert them.

 

Have you ever heard "Make the Two, One"? It is a reference from the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Chapter 24. It is implying to be aware of the main Duality underlying existence; masculine and feminine energy. Imagine your being as a pair of scales, imagine those scales in perfect, still, harmony with the other. That is when you enter what the Christians call the "Kingdom of Heaven", or what is called Self-realization in Hinduism/Buddhism/Taoism. Here is the full quote; ""When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner as the outer, and the upper as the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male shall not be male, and the female shall not be female: . . . then you will enter [the kingdom]."

 

God can slowly be made known through the very real and constant unveiling of wisdom that is made known to us as we find balances between, and ultimately liberation from, Duality.

 

Where does your mind reside? Share a bit about your mind <3. Love you guys, thanks!

Tao (Chinese: ; pinyin: dào) literally means "way", but can also be interpreted as road, channel, path, doctrine, or line.

Since Buddhism denies the existence of a separate self, as explicated in the teachings of Anatman and Sunyata, self-realization is a contradiction in terms for Buddhism. Though the tathagatagarbha-teachings seem to teach the existence of a separate self, they point to the inherent possibility of attaining awakening, not to the existence of a separate self. The dharmadhatu-teachings make this even more clear: reality is an undivided whole; awakening is the realization of this whole.

Why make a post with statements you know nothing about
