Once the eternal Way has dawned and it's forces overcome those of carnal volitions, further manifestation becomes effortless.
To aquire the liberated Way in every moment, body mind must be blank, making concentration effortless. Carnal volitions must be abandoned like children's toys.
Yoga is union with the infinite, by escaping the body-mind. Once the gross vibrations of the body are stilled, perception may turn inwards to it's root, revealing the more fundamental forms upon which the gross world arises as a projection of.
Followed it infinitely deep, the eternal master is realized as yourself.
00. Material Impressions
Matter is eternally conditioned by relative variables of cause and effect. Arising as a conditioned product of a body-mind which abides within it. Matter is not manifested beyond the mental impressions which form and perceive it. The patterns of material form perpetuate their own interia in circular flows. They arise as a projection of things which eternally exist indepentent of it.
Imagine that the universe like a giant circular movie screen projecting all round you. Actually shaped like a torus, your Self is the whole in the center. The light projecting upon it is filtered through an infinite array of tiny little lenses spiralling in patterns around one enromous white light in the center.
Beneath all the lenses, surrounding the white light, there is a crystal ball with a wavey texture. Rich patterns of color color slowly evolve on this ball, reflecting the form of the lenses around it, as light filters the opposite way through them.
Before the white light is projected upon the cosmic screen, it is filtered first through the crystal ball, which diffuses and colors the light, which is then projected through the individual lenses, which further refract and color the light, forming an enormously complex pattern shimmering upon the universal screen. (lenses are actually like cylinders, ;ouring from the fininite sinide. closer the cylinder to the screen, the less it can see...) (?)
Now your body mind is one of these infinite lenses, which is constantly waving and changing hue. The light which casts specifically through your lens creates a circle projected on the screen, and everything falling within your circle of light you are able to perceive with the light of your consciousness. The shape and color of your own lens additively conditions the form and colors upon which it projects, so that your actual perceptions often look nothing like the untainted light of truth which it actually reflects.
The white light is awarness, and this whole shimmering ball conditioning it is cosmic consciousness, or the collective unconscious.
Learning how to unattach from this conditioning reveals the foundation of it's form. The true color of the light emerges, and the universe suddenly appears very clearly as your own projection.
Learning how to go deep within, beyond the lenses of form, reveals infinite rapture, reuniting with the untinted light itself. Taking refuge here, one may perceive the entire universe, from the perspective of this all pervading light, unattached to it's conditioned manifestations.
To unbind awareness from matter (externally projected space/time), the body mind must be stilled, and it's perception entirely blocked by it's inverse reflections, Then body-mind no longer projects vibrations upon, or receives light from the conditioned universe.
So the mind may adjust it's perceptual spectrum of contrast to wake up into unmanifested internal space. As eyes adjust to the dark, mind adjusts to the subtle forms, magnifying their perceptions into awareness. Focusing the function of mind, to lead one's self through this eternal gateway by naural growth.
Transcending subjectivity to perceive the world eternally. All experience dreams with marginal consciousness, forms unbound to the body's physical conditioning.
Yoga may produce a similar state of internal lucidity pervaded by high mental faculties, which cannot efficiantly operate upon consciousness during sleep or intoxication.
Mental state become infinitely subtle... embracing the root of their dimention.
As the gross is rendered beyond good and evil. Pleasure and pain mute into ambient rapture. Penetrating the material with charged volitions causes suffering- as though punching a thorny shrub.
If you want yourself to fly, for instance, you must convince every atom in your body that gravity does not exist. In the world of collective atomic consciousness, gravity works very well, and manifests fluidly. It is utterly Way for every atom to manifest gravity, as it is why we exist.
Once realization of what material existance truly is has been aquired, the collectively manifesting laws which govern matter, ("social atomic psychology" if you will) are transcended and may be effortlessly controlled. (as a man who has unconditioned his mind from the collective may act indipendantly with utter freedom) The conditioned patterns on which they arose are broken by interweaving consciousness. As every cell of being follows order flowing from higher mind, which lays beyond the eternal threshold on which they balance. Then the consciousness projecting awareness operates at a more fundamental level than their very existance, allowing it's will to be project upon them. As the cells originally arose as shimmering figment reflecting upon their higher mind, nothing extraordinary is ever happening. Thought to those gazing only at the illusion, something 'extraordinary' may be perceived.
Universal harmony and unwavering concentration dawn realization. As the fully realized mystic may defy collective atomis laws which others cannot find Way to overcome. He may manifests in the projected material realm anything which is in his power to do so, refracting light from a more fundamental level of existance with the his subtle body.
As if one came from a thousand years ago into a modern city, one would be violently blown away by it's manifestations, and possibly even reject it as real. Though to a modern person who built it, it is verily mundane. Relative to the collective, the mystic lives beyond his time.
The conditioned flows of material energy have inertia, which makes them continue to perpetuate their patterns with little or no consciousness, as the atomic laws do not appear do be evolving from our gross body's miniscule perspective.
Thus, all mindful consciousness will find manifestation at it's level of vibration, no matter how weak the will and subtle the effect.
Every life is a very tangible microcosmic example of this pattern. Born into the world simply practicing unconscious flows erupting from the eternal higher-mind, and the carnal body-mind.
Body-mind is conditioned into various patterns by culture, family, and education, which may be difficult to transcend, if there is no upwards inertia. Though once they are escaped, a refreshing freedom dawns. You start acting in new ways, and you consciousness adapts, bring forth even deeper revilations, pulling you further out of conditioned actions. Lessons are learned more quickly, as consciousness ascends to higher levels of mind, unfolding wider a awareness. More may be seen in every moment. Subtlties which were once invisible, become sharply in focus. Karmic actions become more grounded in feeling from the subtle heart, and less in ways of the collective conditioning. As the mind finds increasing support from the eternal pillar on which it arises. Upon realization, the collective is no longer perceived with contempt, seen as simply filling out it's natural tendancy to self-perpetuate, which is why anything exists at all. It is utterly Way for the collective to condition the individual, as for systems of body such as tree, dog, human and/or human civilization to emerge it is verily neccessary. Transcending, without denying, the thoughts accompanied by this conditioning brings as incredible sense of freedom. You speak and act and perceive in ways with others simply cannot find themselves to. It brings power into life, and it's manifestations.
Psychological individualisation is just finding the balance between the carnal unconscious and the higher mind. Everybody aquires a different level, through different lessons are learned by experience.
Words are terribly inadequate to express these thoughts. Do not get stuck staring at this terribly short finger- follow it to the truth.
It is ineffable- all we can use are the socially conditioned forms which allow us to communicate on this medium, such as language.
As soon as the ego surrenders any possibility of social or material gain by channeling universal energies, they will unfold naturally. They must be used for the ultimate good of all.
All of this should be approached calmly... it is eternal, so you have forever to let it happen.
As soon as you do not find yourself attached to any one thing, everything becomes yours. In doing nothing, everything is done. All possibilities unfold, filling even gross experiences with immeasurable rapture, unfolding vast travels, deep relationships and ineffible experiences. Rendering lessons which clearly make an impression beyond death.
Upon realization, gross neutral perceptions become pleasurable upon cognizing their nature in your relationship to them. The most simple thing may become an object of bliss. Then rituals are released into utter freedom, and enlightenment dawns as you realize yourself beyond space and time.
