Default Cosmos and ourselves are mutually creating – mutually included.

New York and Tokyo are already a different form of concentration camp ruin.
Whatever we do, is already ruins. What is the real meaning of our deeds, or actions, or life itself?
Yes, all is in vain. The physical cosmos is vacant and meaningless. As a consequence, it is my (your) perfectly free choice whether you follow the common principle of spending life in vain, or to discover and create our own new meaning and higher principle, as each of us is an incomparable, unique universe, and originally (NOW), we are infinite, we include everything as
everything includes us. We are being created by the universe and at the same time each of us is, moment by moment, creating a totally new unique universe. So we are free not to follow the very common principle of cosmic vacancy and futility. We can create a new cosmos of unique nature and principle day by day, encounter by encounter, cosmos by cosmos (in this awakened moment of THIS!) Cosmos and ourselves are mutually creating – mutually included.
Once we really understand the ultimate point of this creative paradox of universe and life in our depths, everything is so profoundly unique and meaningful. We discover anew, afresh, that we have never found life before. This is the real discovery of the universe in our depths. As the original nature of the cosmos and ourselves is infinite and colourless (no fixed colour), any colour is possible- if you are red, the universe is red, if you become black, the universe is black; there is no fixed way or constant colour – everything is
transient and ever-changing.
Now we know this reality of ourselves and whenever we mindfully breathe
one-by-one, we feel our deepest fulfillment that life is not being spent in vain. This One breath is Now. Now is this one breathing of the whole universe, of vividly activated emptiness.
It might not be possible to prove or establish objectively the meaning or absolute values of life and the cosmos. However, what we can experience clearly is that each one of us is a different cosmos (a “univerself”), therefore One cosmic symphony is possible. Each one of us so infinitely and inseparably inter-connected and mutually inclusive. This means that each one of us is
ceaselessly creating a new cosmic life, meaning and myriad universes, life by life. We do not need objective proof, individual or publicly fixed values (norms) to establish meaning. It seems that our life and everything is meaningless and futile, but therefore(!), because there is no fixed
meaning, no cosmic norms or values, each cosmos (each “life-meaning-creation-cosmos”) is possible totally anew. The cosmic creator (who makes the meaningless, futile and boring cosmos into an infinitely unique and meaningful cosmos), should be each one of us only, not anyone else.
Just the one ultimate point in our depths should be clarified, realized and then, everything we have done so far, whether it is in vain, meaningful or not, suddenly attains a new life-meaning for all. What is this one ultimate point? This encounter-awareness (innermost discovery) new miracle
of Here-Now only! This is it, nothing else!
In the very midst of our futile, transient lives, there is something which is neither ruined, nor prosperous, but so vividly empty. What is it?!
Everything and any state all depend on THIS.
Love,
Ramai

As realisation dawned that, “I” was just a letter, the language of thought and no more. I can read this passage absorb its wonderful essence and then allow the concepts that it brings to mind to float away.


peace

What a wonderful article. It's not that the universe is meaningless, but the idea of a meaning is one that we create. Everything is honored but nothing matters. Everything that happens is full of meaning that you choose. Everything you do is important because you choose. There is no objective meaning or value to follow, it's one you create, and because of that it is important. Yet while everything is honored, nothing really matters.

Very difficult to convey what I'm feeling in response to this article...

Thank you for posting this Ramai!

Hi Ramai,

A couple of friends came over for dinner the other night. One of them was glancing through some of my library. She posed the question, "When meditating, what should my expectations be? What should I expect to happen? Why would I bother?"

It occured to me that at that moment, particularly in this western society that we are often conditioned to thinking in terms of profit and loss - as if it was some form of production line or commercial undertaking. The time expended to sit and meditate was couched as an "investment" and so the question came quickly down to "what is in it for me"?

A number of the books in the library offered a whole list of returns - some plausable, some less so.

But when it is distilled down, none of these claims are really of the slightest importance, particularly so if meditation is akin to allowing Spirit to breathe just like breath brings life and vitality to the body. The only important thing all said and done is that Spirit lives, that it lives wholly and it realizes its union will all in this all too brief life.

And on that night, just as it has over the ages, it resonates with some and not with others.

Nothing but the best...

Olmate

Exactly Olmate,
We are a conditioned consumer society. The realisation that we have collectively traded our true nature in for material advantage was at first astonishing then funny. Seeing through this folly opens up a wonderful door to our spirit. Stillness is not something you aspire to or bargain for, it just is.



peace

I couldn't agree more. I'm so glad to have found this forum, it doesn't seem like many are aware of their infinite power and beauty!!
