Quantum Leap: “Aes Dhammo Sanantano“! ❤️☀️☮️☯️🌻🧘🏻‍♀️🌈🙏

For ages, science and spirituality have been debating on the transition of matter from one state to another. In the West, talks and discussions by physicists like Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg gave birth to the quantum theory; whereas in the East, sages simply turned towards their inner consciousness to take this big leap; from one state of awareness to another, from chaos to peace. However, both scientific and spiritual theories are based on the same definition that a quantum leap is that sudden transition brought about through an exemplary shift in one’s life, by moving from one state to the other. Since this transition depends on the amount of energy applied, we call it a big move forward in one’s life. Like the theory of quantum mechanics, I see the same eternal law in Gautama Buddha’s words: ”Aes Dhammo Sanantano”– “the ultimately of life” that blissfulness is our very nature. This is the eternal, inexhaustible law: your nature is to become God. But in the journey of life, we have separated ourselves by creating and believing that we each are separate like an island. The quantum leap, therefore, is nothing but a sudden jump from this false notion of an isolated island to the vast and infinite zone of bliss or godliness. Danish physicist Niels Bohr had observed that the process of transition from one state to another is accompanied by the emission of electromagnetic radiation. Similarly in our consciousness too, this leap from mind to no-mind carries the energy of awakening that transforms our total inner being. Meditation is this single quantum leap that takes us from a chattering mind full of queries, towards a state of pure consciousness. In this state, there is no need for mind or language to experience and feel the deep silence that engulfs us. Just be yourself and all that one needs to know will be known.

The only real problem is: how to go on continuously dying to the past? How to go on remaining courageous enough to take new life every moment? People call their stagnancy safety, security. Safety and security are just rationalizations for remaining stagnant. You can remain secure and safe with the past. You can avoid the crisis; that’s what millions of people have decided. But then they remain mediocre. Man has to die each moment and has to be ready to be reborn again and again and again. Between this constant death and birth is life. Between these two is the gap which is life. Between the past and the future is life in that small interval called “present.” Between the past, the long past, and the long future, exists a gap. Only those who go on constantly dying and constantly getting reborn know that gap because they pass again and again through that gap. It is like a gate; from one side it is an entrance, from the other side it is an exit. Or it is like breathing; the same breath going inwards is called inhalation, and the same breath going outwards is called exhalation. Death is exhalation, birth is inhalation. Birth is entrance, death is exit. But it is the same life energy, the same wave.

Man is a potential god - a bodhisattva. Man is meant to become a god. Less than that won′t satisfy you, less than that is of no use. You can have all the money in the world, all the power, all the prestige possible, and still you will remain empty - unless your divinity is revealed to you, you can never be contented. The ordinary religious person is told to remain satisfied, contented, with whatsoever is the case. Satisfaction is one of their fundamental teachings. That is not the way of the true masters. The true master creates discontent in you - and such a discontent that nothing of this world can ever satisfy it. He creates such a longing in you, that unless you attain to the ultimate you will remain aflame, afire. He creates pain in your heart, he creates anguish... because life is slipping by every moment, and each moment gone is gone forever, and you have not attained to God yet, and one day is over. He creates such a deep longing in you, such pain in the heart! He creates tears in your eyes, because only through such divine discontent will you move, will you take the quantum leap, the ultimate jump into the unknown. It is only through such divine discontent that you will gather together all your energies, and you will risk, and you will go on the ultimate adventure of finding who you are.❤️

It's easy to hang on to the known but you will never experience life that way... Waiting for life to happen. Although its dangerous to take the leap into the unknown, the rewards are endless. You have to take the risk though. The jump. The dive into the unknown. Only then you can begin discovering yourself ❤🙏☝️

Quantum leap is getting ready to jump☝️. Life can mean only one thing and that is constant adventure, always moving from the known into the unknown; and ultimately, a quantum leap from the unknown into the unknownable. It’s natural to feel afraid but if one stops rediscovering himself then might as well live in the grave. 🤷‍♀️👍🙏🌈🌻❤️

Ghosts 😂🙏

How appropriate just up from a cat nap? 🤣😂🤣😂. Peaka boo 👻 💨💨💨

Hiba the friendly ghost🤗🤣😂

You know what: Hiba made great point☝️, without movement, people are just like ghosts, appearing to be alive but not actually living. 🤔

She did👍😊. They are just floating around like ghosts, watching others live but not participating .

As usual it opens up to another perspective that ghost is a metaphor for memory. And intelligence doesn’t come from memory 🤓

The past is all just memory and can haunt you like a ghost. If you are constantly trying to project the past onto the present then you will stop using intelligence. Just reliving the same day. The same lecture. Same posts☝️.

Ya same old materials recited 🥴. Memory is the whole life-energy of ego as memory is the old and is afraid of the new. The new is disturbing because it requires readjusting and shifting. That would cause fear and life only begins when fear ends. 😇

hi agora!

tx so much for asking... i appreciate your concern!

mom had a really hard weekend this past one... feeling lonely, and depressed... more so that weeks past.

she's been obsessing over stuff that's not worth getting bent out of shape over... and i guess i'm realizing that she's getting old... her memory isn't as clear - and she knows it - which is GOOD (not dementia). she's on lexapro low dose - but getting nausea fairly regularly. so she's frustrated. i can't get her to let go of the silly things she's obsesses over... so i'm getting a little frustrated...

i'm TRYING to get her involved in peer to peer video support groups - but "she's not ready yet". i'm TRYING to get her to start moving on with things that need attention, like updating will, powers of attorney, etc... and "she's not ready yet". i'm more and more dreading that she drops, and i'm stuck with a mess of epic proportions - AND my brother smack in the middle of that mess! TRYING to get her to talk to a therapist - but ... yep... "not ready yet".

my bro up to his usual... so that's on top of everything else... i'm not even speaking to him. but mom talks to him EVERYDAY... so she has to deal w/ his crap. and i'm now her only confidant - so - i get to hear about it...

and i thought I could be stubborn! now i know where i get it from! :)

.

on top of that... got stuff at home i'm TRYING (and failing) to deal with. issues with 2 friends - that are eating away at me too... and... well other stuff. you get the idea...

i'm ready for a new body, and new life... :-|

<3xxx

I'm sorry you are carrying all the burden on your shoulders. Sometimes we appear

to be the stronger ones but we can only pile so much on our backs.

I've been thinking about your mom because I know that reality is now starting to set

in for her and this confusion as to what to do with everything is on hold.

She's not emotionally ready to accept the inevitable that this is the final mile.

I remember my mother going through that after my father passed away. Cleaning

out the closets and giving away my dad's clothes was a difficult thing to do.

When she decided to sell the house I grew up in, I was heartbroken but I understood

she needed to do that because my dad had fallen down the steps in that house and it was a constant reminder that he was gone.

It takes time to grieve, everyone at their own pace. Meanwhile you have to remind

yourself that you are doing the best you can do for her right now. I know it's difficult

and it's sad but there comes a time in every mother's life that "mama" needs help.

Take care of yourself. Give yourself some "me time" before bed and meditate and breathe out the frustrations of the day. My thoughts are with you. :) xx

agora, TY so much. your words mean so much to me ...

i've been numb again... and your words remind me i'm still capable of feeling... and i've been tired, oh so tired of feeling... but this is a different feeling... i'm not good w/ the emo stuff - it's all still new to me... so i'm not good at identifying what exactly i'm feeling, or why... so i don't know what i'm feeling as i read your words... but i know its different. its... not tired. ... not sure... different. in a good way.

its funny what you said about the cleaning out... maybe that's part of my concern... my mom is SO NOT there yet. she's hardly moved a single thing. she did throw out 1 or 2 items that my step dad was hanging onto - for god only knows why (old mags, etc)... but she's not ready to even think about cleaning out... which i'm perfectly fine with... it's my bro who can't wait to get his hands on 'the treasures'. i could care less- EXCEPT - i don't want my bro touching a GD thing. they're not his to touch yet. (or mine). honestly - the longer mom waits to clean anything out - the longer before i have to face my grubbing gimme gimme bro during that spit show. so i'm happy to wait. but i'm fearful too. i don't want to face that spit show alone. and if mom waits too long... maybe she wont be here for it. i REALLY don't want to face that time. and this is ALL about not wanting to see my bro disgrace their memory.

i guess maybe i've either still got some grieving to do... or maybe i've got ALOT of accepting to do... accepting that my bro is a frackin whore - and accepting that there's nothing i can do to change that... and there's nothing i can do to protect my mom from that. not as long as she continues to enable him. that's out of my hands too. i suppose i've got both those things to do yet.... and i don't seem to know how...

and as i reread, what i've just written... i find myself both surprised and not sure what.... not sure how your words evoked this reply... not sure how i got here.

it's really emotionally draining to stay w/ mom... but i think the sad and scary truth is - it's also an escape from my own life. i'm so about being here - that i can escape my own crap at home.

i'm also scared spitless too tho - scared that mom becomes too dependent on me. scared that i can't be strong enuf. scared if something happens to me, she collapses. that's why i want her in vid chat support groups. i dont want all her eggs in my basket... which is absolutely funny as spit - because this is EXACTLY what my bro would want! he'd want to be in my shoes so he could manipulate and control her. i'm scared of having that kind of power. i know it's not right; not healthy.

omg don't know how i got here... lol. i've been babbling from whence i know not.

i've probly babbled enough...

TY so much for listening... (reading)...

gonna go watch a show w/ mom...

TX again! TTYL

Rob, thank you for the clarification, all cats remain untouched 😂😅. As I see you are still on Copenhagen interpretation as you still remain on the superposition and ready to interact with any chaos 😅😅😅. Gotta find that gap in between which comes back to my post 🤣😂🤣😂. I’m glad you’re back at your mom and still kicking n screaming 🤗. Much love and lights to you. Sending you koko’s good vibe ❤️❤️❤️🌈☀️🙏xxx.

TY soooo much koko!!!

i so would like to respond to that reply in my normal way... but just don't have the energy just now.... :( but i truly love your attempt to get a rise out of me!!! ;-)

not sure how much kickin n screaming i'm doing... that takes alot of energy... and i think i'm losing that battle...

luv back at you... and TYVM i'm def taking all that good stuff... need it!

<3<3<3xxx

Aweee Rob you saw through me 😎 I did try to get a rise out of you with quantum theory speculation 🤣😂🤣😂. But I understand I’ll wait for your rematch at a later time 🤗. You are here, now, breathe.... can’t solve everything in short period of time. When you have plenty of rest and good nutrition meals intake, you will slowly come back to your core. Much love n lights to you always ❤️❤️❤️🌈🙏xxx

Our thoughts are form, but we are formless. Like you said, everything that we can physically or mentally grasp in this lifetime are at best transient; we can identify with them through our ego, but ultimately they do not confer permeance...money, status, relationships, family history, racial, religious, political, belief systems, or any other collective identifications. That's all the ego. It feeds itself constantly, and it needs to be defended all the time. But we are not that. We are formless. We are already whole and one with the universe. Hell, we have the same elements in our body that link us to stars that formed billions of years ago. Think about that! See you in the gap ✨

Wow well said Kainain ❤️. We are all made of atoms, just specks floating in this Universe. By understanding this basic fundamental concept combining with the wisdom of Eastern philosophy, we can design our own path which is close to our core of being. See you in the gap Kainan☝️🤗🌈💫✨🙏

What Easter Kainain ?🤣😂🤣😅

Eastern philosophy not Easter philosophy 🤣😂😅. I did go to my family’s Easter party but I don’t celebrate Easter Holiday 🙅‍♀️😅
