“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

  1. The body is comprised of billions of life forms and occupied by a collective consciousness. This going around again cycle is dependent on one factor which is self grasping or believing there really is a self separate from all that is. This body is miracle dust. It is a guest house. According to the Tantras it is an unbelievable body in terms of Ascension- one of two worlds where one can obtain a channeled body to work with winds and drops and eventually have kundalini burn through all the bodies this body is. But when it comes down to it, there is nothing about this body that is "I" and we should learn that real quick as humans. For when we engage dualistic perceptions based on self grasping like hatred towards another body then our minds get hot, our bodies get hot. And as these bodies are the very same elements of the phenomenal world, and because cells communicate, we hear up the elements around us and knock them out of harmony resulting in weather patterns and environmental beat. In fact global warming is a creation of the mind. It is jealousy which is the most dangerous affliction. Left unchecked it courses constantly but very subtly. It is the basis for resentment and completion, anger and hatred. Jus gloom what beings do out of jealousy. How to remedy this is come back to the divine breathing and rest in the mind that is the awareness of these afflictions- just seeing them come and go without grasping at them as something real. Then the fixation relaxes, the unity mind is spaciously enjoyed, and one forgets the body. It is at those moments great healing can occur. Am glad you teach religious studies. The world is great- it is mostly to benefit the body. People need methods to benefit the mind. Religion is that medicine. Please just make sure to tell them God is both- male and female- the original Buddha, original twin flame, origins purity. All phenomena arise in that play of emptiness and appearance. And a quick way to make tremendous merit to to consider the truth of the matter which is we are each a complete universe housing countless sentient life forms. When we are happy, they are happy. When we bless our food and eat right, they are heathy. When we love them, they liberate. To be a human is a miracle. A true miracle. Thank you for benefitting beings in these precious bodies. See you in Dewachen.
