A story to B-read about a Buddhing Jesus

As you may have noticed if you have followed my social media presence, I have called myself enlightened for the last year. This is a mistake, a better formulation would be to say that I have striven for enlightenment and self-actualization during the past years, and during that process, I have had quite a few (from my perspective) mind-boggling experiences and insights into the nature of reality, which have turned my life upside down and inside out, in ways which I could never have imagined before. But let’s save most of those stories for another time.
What is this thing about enlightenment? The perfectly enlightened being would be totally unselfish, 100% aware, compassionate and unconditionally loving. At the moment I am far from that, I still have a great deal of flaws. This blog post is my attempt to turn some of these flaws and especially their effect on my life for the last weeks into something positive. I want to show you what can happen when you attempt to be a modern fledgling apprentice Jesus/Buddha/saint-whatever, but you fail. I will demonstrate this with an example from my life. These events made me laugh, and I hope you who are reading this can laugh with me. This post is only slightly related to Jesus, actually most specifically to some of his miracles, where he made food appear seemingly inexhaustibly.

This particular story started with my realization that by manipulating thoughts one can manifest things very quickly (almost instantly), and also get extremely good at it. This actually what every human being does, although many do it at such an unconscious level that they forget that it is actually their thoughts and beliefs about reality that make the things appear exactly where and how they appear.
The ideal is that one uses this knowledge for personal growth. Part of creating these ideal circumstances is questioning what one’s true nature is. What is consciousness? How does reality actually work? What makes you think you are who you are? Especially those things that limit you from true lasting happiness and fulfillment should be questioned to their core. In the end, you may discover that nothing you took for granted about reality actually has any solid ground. Thus, you can in principle become a miracle-worker like Jesus, turning water into wine, or anything else you would like, but previously thought would never could happen, a.k.a. your truest most inner desires. Perhaps the next president. A rock star. An intergalactic ambassador. An immortal god/goddess. Imagination and dreams team up properly with actual experience. The higher level of consciousness you reach, the more readily you can become and live it.

So what have I used this for? One thing I have gradually changed in my reality is making sure I don’t need to buy anything I need any longer at all. I basically make my shopping list with the universe in general as the provider, and only use things which have been discarded by others. This is marvelous from my point of view, since it enables me to live with zero, or even reversed negative impact on the environment. It aligns with my well with my values.

But what happens when your lower self, the more egotistic side of you which you have been working to overcome makes a comeback? The one that does not want to do any effort of self-improvement and keep everything for and to itself?

Well, in my case, this turned me into a funny sort of beta-Jesus, (as in a buggy version of a software not ready for public release). Striving to be a savior of the world, but with all sorts of personal problems still lingering on from the past. Some examples are low self-esteem, indecisiveness and tendencies to isolate myself. Most of these flaws are not glaring obvious, and they subtly come and go. So instead of, like Jesus, providing bread for the poor and hungry (and I guess Jesus did fish too, but as a new updated vegan version, I refuse to do that), beta-Jesus manifests bizarre amounts of bread (while trying to find healthier food, but mostly failing (except for fruits, fruits are easy, they grow on trees!)). I already knew from previous experiments that eating is actually not necessary. But old habits and cravings still popped back up, so as beta-Jesus I manifested bread as a sort of common-denominator-food, and in all sorts of places (just laying around wherever I look). I carried the bunch in the photo home, laughed about it and then didn’t really know what good to make of it except write this blog post.

Aside for entertainment, I hope this can help you in your quest for self-improvement, by showing what not to do and waste your time on.
I hope you have good regular healthy habits established such as meditation and yoga, and avoid eating fast easy carbohydrates like beta-Jesus thinks he needs! If you buy bread (as opposed to just find it appear sitting next to you, looking inconspicuous), at least buy whole-grain. Mono-cultures in general are not ecologically friendly at all compared to locally produced legumes!

You are infinite infinities – Some discoveries made when raising consciousness and awareness

If one stays for long enough time in a focused awareness on any one perception of the present, there arises a perception of the absence of everything else. That else we can call the accumulated experience, or the assumed past and the expected future. What does this accumulated experience of an individual being encompass, what has been stored in it? Experiences comes through perceptions.

Examples of perceptions of our outer world as humans are:

  • Sounds
  • Sights
  • Smells
  • Tastes
  • Other body senses

Examples of perception of our inner world are:

  • Thoughts
  • Emotions
  • Dreams
  • Imaginations

All these perceptions can be collectively denominated by different words such as patterns, waves, energies, events to name a few. I will stick to the word pattern for the remainder of this text. They are interconnected and accumulated by an individual being since its birth. Something which is discovered, after searching deeply, is

There are no actual borders in reality!

This can be found in many ways, for example through persistently seeking the most accurate information, or by persistently trying to discover what is the unifying connection between different concepts, by meditation with the goal of experiencing non-duality, or by stumbling upon it. We can see in science that any measurement of anything ultimately comes from an agreement of a model of reality. Equally so in religion. Any faith comes from accepting a original statement. In this, we understand that there is actually no conflict between religion and science, since both has to start with a statement/belief that then is taken as truth. Now before you might say that science is the method of drawing conclusion based on facts, ask yourself, where did those facts come from?

Some interesting conclusions can be drawn from the lack of actual borders in reality is that many things taken for granted, does not exist in the reality outside of the limited experience.

So there is no time in reality.

And there are no separate three dimensions in reality

The concepts of time and space only exist as a reoccurring and thus reinforcing experience. This might seem mind-boggling, but please stay with me.

The personal experience of the universe in each moment can be seen as a function of an enormous structure of interconnected partial structures, where the core stays seemingly fixed. That core part contains among other things the separation between time, space in inner and outer perceptions. But these are also interconnected without any actual border. The experience of there being borders were formed during the earliest parts of our existence. And these borders and the patterns they delimit are mutually arising, they cannot exist without each other in the form they are perceived. Remember however, that this is of course, another model, and therefor not REALLY the truth either.

What deep regular meditation over a longer time can do is to make raise the awareness of the interrelation between all these structures that seem to be subdivided into distinct categories, but actually must, by nature of it being impossible to actually grasp and define any actual border in reality, be at some point, at some level, the same thing. Meditation slows down the intake of perceptions/experiences enough such that some reoccurring patterns and their connectivity to other patterns come up to the surface. They go from being subconscious to being conscious, and thereby can be modified, rethought and restructured. Being in the state of higher consciousness reconnects, reorders and restructures all these perceived substructures, for example by changing or questioning beliefs, seeking new information and accepting new experiences.

Another realization in meditation is that there is no self apart from everything else that is experienced. And so, there is actually nothing left to be afraid, worry about, it is all generated by the same consciousness in the present moment.

There can also not be any limits to what the consciousness is capable of redefining in terms of the experience of reality, and the potential of changes and possibilities for any individual being is therefore infinite. Not infinity as the unreachable end of only a line, because that is infinity in only one dimension and direction. But infinitely infinite, as infinite in infinite dimensions.

One of the fastest ways of changing the experience of reality, apart from meditation, is to accept other viewpoints which one has been resisting a long time as valid, to be possible to hold for oneself. It will then be shown very soon by direct new experience that there is no thing such as true or false about any other beings perception and beliefs about reality, it is only perceived as such in relation to one’s own beliefs. If it really seems incompatible, it might be a belief that has been held for a long time. Examples of such beliefs for a human can be both seen as positive or negative. Beliefs about oneself, one’s parents, different religions, science, childhood, politics, prejudice about a certain groups of people, and many other ideas that maintains one’s sense of separate identity and personality. A drawback of keeping these beliefs it that it will limit the personal development and possibility to learn, improve and expand.

I will end this blog post here, but might come back to it later to expand on certain ideas. I welcome questions, criticism and any other feedback if you have read this far. I would very much like to hear from you!

A vision of the future

Can you imagine just a few decades or so forward, living in a world where there are no longer any borders between countries, because there are no countries. No laws needing to be enforced, no forms to fill in, no need to prove who you are to anyone? Can you imagine a world where there is no need to own or pay for anything, because there is no perceived lack of anything, a world were not only humans but all other animals are recognized as equally treasured beings on this planet, on the same level consciously, and allowed to move and do whatever they want without any fear of anyone and anything? And can you imagine being completely free to move around this world, participating in any activity you would like to, freely expressing and creating together with others?

A change towards this world is possible. By just allowing oneself to imagine it, it starts coming into existence. By starting from oneself, questioning the usefulness of abiding by old concepts, beliefs and structures, both concerning our own personalities and external circumstances. By seeking truth but not stopping and settling anywhere.

A first personal step towards a world revolution

It all begins with you. Right where you are. Right now.

This website will be dedicated as a hub in the center of some of the activities that I see as most central for the personal evolution in the life of a human, a being with unlimited untapped potential.

Some areas I have thought of covering are:

  • Art
  • Body movement
  • Exploration of the unknown
  • Health and nutrition
  • Higher consciousness
  • Letting go, detachment
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Music and sounds
  • Philosophy
  • Psychology
  • Quantum physics
  • Religion
  • Spirituality
  • Unconditional love

Let me know in the comments if you would like me to write about something in particular.
