What is the perception that replaces the core illusion of beginnings and endings? And does this core illusion lie at the root of the 144 illusions?†
Firstly, for my answer to make sense, I want to remind you what I'm referring to. Here's the previous message in question: Illusions.
The core illusion is at the root of all other illusions, including the 144 primary ones.
The perception that replaces the core illusion, lies at the foundation of mastering life — the way we mastered death. It is very abstract and deserves much contemplation and meditation to be able to grasp.
- The masses see a lifetime as though it is a straight continuous line with a beginning (birth) and ending (death).
- A more enlightened 'master' has a broader perspective and sees many lifetimes and rebirths as a dotted line, with many beginnings and endings.
- An immortal master sees life as dying and rebirthing every moment. This viewpoint seems to integrate the pair of opposites of beginning and ending. Life becomes a single dot.
- But a godbeing knows that even a moment has a beginning and ending and that rebirthing every moment anew, has not really dissolved the illusion of these opposites — it has just reduced their polarity (the gap between them). The lifetime of a godbeing reduced to a dot, has to instead become a portal. The moment is seen as a gateway or portal through which life pours.
If the godbeing can live from this perspective, he or she can master life. Feel life pouring through you every moment. Cultivate this awareness by revisiting this perception (of the moment as a portal) multiple times a day. Meditate on life pouring through the moment until you become familiar with the feeling.
The masses see the river as having a beginning and an end. But that's an illusion, because the river is an ever new river every instant as new water flows through it in a new way. Even as they blink, the river has renewed itself. It cannot be grasped nor mapped out; it has no beginning or end. Approach the moment with the eyes of a child — full of adventure and discovery. A child loses himself in the glorious adventure of life revealing itself anew every moment. With delight and in the humble acknowledgement of the unknowableness of life, like a child, may we become explorers of life.
