Namaste and the Recoil of Love back to Itself - God is Love



RUMI: "God is a hidden treasure who wants to be known: a treasure because he is perfection itself, and he wants to be known because all striving can only tend toward him. Love is God’s activity of wanting to be known; love is the recoil of the perfect being toward perfection that he already is. Hence, God’s creative act, motivated by his desire to be known. God created the cosmos and everything in it to make himself manifest, and he makes it the destiny of all creatures 7 to seek the treasure hidden in all of creation, including the treasure hidden in themselves. God decrees that all creatures desire him." 
Note the highlighted part in Rumi's quote. The Sanskrit word Sattva is define as our true being, or the entity we were before creation. We were all created in perfection, then cast into Samsara (suffering and cyclic existence). Samsara is the suffering a being must accomplish to be individuated here in reality (lower 6 dimensions).  See the list below from my books and examine the related Sanskrit words used in relation to the three modes of being.

Rajas and Tamas are the modes of being referred to as the six worlds, or lower six dimensions of time and space listed in the chart above. There are 10 in total, but 9 comprising Mind, Time and Space. Each mode is divided into three dimensions. Symbolically, God is 10 (unmanifest) and the Son of God is 9, or all minds formed into one. He is also the branch, or the divided mind into his host (humanity below). 

Six Worlds

Tamas is the mode of being we see, or ignorance. Dimensions one, two and three are what you see, or the 3D world. Rajas is defined as passion, or the three dimensions of time. Just like the first three dimensions being line, branch and fold (1D line, 2D plane and 3D form), time is the same.


Brahma (mind), Vishnu (time) and Shiva (impermanent form). Brahma creates, Vishnu embodies as the avatar and Shiva destroys (liberates back to Sattva). Without this impermanence, no liberation is possible. As the Bible states, "Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin (karma)."


See the chart above of the 10 worlds of Buddhism. Line of thought, branching of thought and folded thought are Mind only, or the birth of creation. Above time, you are the true being, or Sattva. Sattva, or mind only as the Buddhists call it, is one mind (SON), branching mind (all of us) and line of mind entering time for each person. The Son experiences all of it as the enfolded mind. We only experience what is seen in Tamas (ignorance). Once you pass this life, you return to perfection (Sattva). You again remember your true home and are there until the next life you choose. For a good view of this truth, visit Youtube and learn about near death experiences.


Meditation


Manu in Sanskrit means, "To Think." Meditation here is again remembering Sattva. First, a person must get past their ego and let it die. From there, the higher nature (your true Sattva) gives you what amounts to a download and update. Communication with your higher nature allows the lower nature to cast out negative, which is why so many people meditate. It creates a pathway to the higher realm (neutral/positive only). All the demons of life are the lower realm, as shadows of your own ego. This is what it means to experience ego death, or rebirth. Rebirth as the first Sattva causes your lower nature to die, or what seeing the face of God accomplishes from seeking God. Seeing God's face is seeing your own true face. This is rebirth of the real you; what John 3 calls born from above, or what the Buddhists call Buddha (Awake).


This lower suffering is for one reason:


You cannot experience suffering or karma above. Why? You know God's love directly instead of from ignorance of it. This truth sets you free from the former lives (liberation). Those lives are only temporary and used to teach you from above. Why? By experiencing a time of separation from the true knowledge of God, you gain wisdom by necessity and seeking. You get value from the lower life, which is only temporary and passing.


One day is to the Lord as 1000 years, and 1000 years is as a day (2 Peter 3:8). In other words, if you live 70 years here, you have only been gone from above for 1.64 hours (70/1000). Here, time seems to be long. Above, this was only a moment.


The Matrix of Created Reality


Put this into perspective in our own life. If you could enter a movie with a headset for 1.5 hours, your mind could perceive the movie as a lifetime. Given the technology, we could temporarily put a person into a state of inconscience, allowing them to live an entire life. Imagine giving a child the age of 12 a 70 life in virtual reality, educating them in the art of learning to love others, science, math, the arts and so on. 1.5 hours later, they are 70 years ahead.


The Bible makes it clear we are in a created reality, with the Father's name in Hebrew being Aleph Bet (Letters). The Son is the Word (John 1), or the thing made from letters (programming). Compare this to the body we wear as the avatar being made from DNA (letters of programming making a body). It's a hologram (Matrix / Womb). Imagine this unimaginable knowledge producing the transit from 10 (GOD) into Mind (SON), Time and Space. This reality is not the real reality.



Our reality above is far into our future so to speak. We are much more than the cartoon we live here. If death is only an illusion, then the allusion to a created reality is simple: We are here to learn to appreciate eternity. How? The Tao (see the Tao Te Ching) is all about learning to see relative states. Eternal states cannot change or end. What's relative to this? Impermanence. Look that word up in relation to Buddhism. You are born again each moment you live; each life you live and each moment you change your thinking by learning. Seeing with correct view is a choice.
Dhammapada Choices


We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will follow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.
We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.

Sattva is our true unchanging being, or what Rumi states here: "Love is the recoil of the perfect being (Sattva) toward perfection that he already is." Unless that perfect being experiences suffering, there is no way to appreciate the perfection he returns to in the end. Look toward home, not just back at the journey's lessons. Look at the person you become, then remember the perfection you return to when the journey is complete. Take refuge in the fact that you are a copy of God originally, then again when the work is done. Sattva never changes, but only learns to appreciate what it is.


Recoil: to draw back; start or shrink back, as in alarm, horror, or disgust.


Imagine your reaction to seeing God by His true identity as Love, his true nature as Love and his true Unity with all beings. Identity (who you are as an image of God), Nature (what your nature is as Love) and Unity (all as one love and family). Would you recoil, or snap back to your own unity with God as Love? Yes. This is what it means to be BUDH, or awake. Being born from Buddha's mother (Maya means illusion), the mind can remember. Awake is the same as knowing your identity in Christ (SON of God). One with the Father is one with this truth: God is Love


Namaste


Do you know why people say this? It literally means, "The God in me recognizes the God in you." It's an acknowledgement that the goodness in me sees the goodness in you. Unity recognizes the true Nature of another person. This is the one unified Identity of God, or Love as His nature. Even if you seem to be a suffering fallen being, a person who is awake sees the truth beyond the fa├žade.


Know and remember who you truly are above. Meditation can reveal this to you. Am I Buddhist, Christian or some other identity? No. I'm a child of God and God is Love. One identity that is the Unity we all share by our true highest nature. This truth wants to be known. This truth will be fully known, even if we now see only from a dimly lit mirror.

1 Corinthians 13

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.



Namaste
