A is for Attachment:
Attachment to the body exhausts the soul and leaves it
dependent on physical form. The soul’s dimensions
become rolled up in the quantum events of the body so that
the soul is flat and ghost like. Exhausted souls are easily
trapped by new bodies and taken over by them as a source
of true life conferring subjectivity. The body sucks the
subjectivity out of the soul in order to empower the
alternative quantum world it exists in and change it from
dream and possibility to actual events. The body sucks the
soul’s subjectivity out of Zamaini-Dreamtime-Purusha into
the Sasa-Maya world of temporary manifestations.
The souls that become trapped in physical bodies are weak
souls that are unable to fight their impulse to attach to
physical pleasures. The souls that attach to human brains
are souls addicted to the pleasures of human flesh. These
weak souls have no creative power in themselves and wait
for some human or animal brain to create the electrical
excitement that can awaken them from their endless
Attachment to the body weakens the soul’s ability to gain
access to its store of information from previous lives. All
the soul’s powers are drawn into the body and it’s
experience of the body’s feelings. Emotions bind the soul
to other souls that share the experiences and the
astrological systems that create these emotions. They pull
the soul away from its own unique roots and weave the
threads of the soul’s history into the cloth of the world.
B is for Body:
As Buddhism teaches us, this false self, generated by the
body, is a phantom with no depth or permanence. It draws
us into pleasure. It generates desires. It generates emotions
that lash us to the wheel of birth and death and rebirth.
The true self is the Buddha principle that blows out the
desires generated by the flesh and cuts through the
fundamental basis of existence into the pure freedom of
creative inexistence, creative nothingness. This true self is
the endless Budhisattva principle that generates the
detached essence of eternity. This true self is pure
detachment, pure reversion of the self, separation from the
body and its external form.
It is the pure rejection of the world; it is pure detachment
from all relationships. It is the pure creative isolation from
all form, all action, all desire, all pleasures and emotions of
body and flesh.
Joined to transcendent possibility, it is the joy, the love, the
creative non-being that liberates all things. It is the
Nirvana that unites all existence in the creative void.
It is this transcendence that regenerates the body, that
remakes it as the vehicle of this creativity rather than the
obstacle to this creativity. Once the soul is detached from
the body, the body returns to the soul as the agent of the
Dharma, of the eternal order of endless Buddhamind.
It is the attachment of the soul to the body that weakens.
C is Cause:
The soul has power in its pure creativity, as pure cause, as
pure Nirvana. Only when the soul returns to the pure
subjectivity and pure detachment of this desireless state
does it regain its creative power. As long as the soul is
attached to objects and desires, its power is undone, its
creativity is deflated, its freedom is bound.
The world of effects is the world of fear and anger, of
failed hopes and expectations. In the world of pure causes,
there is no fear, no anger, no failure. This pure Nirvana is
endless love, joy, peace, salvation, freedom, creative
The true self regains its power as primary cause when it
detaches from greed, pride, lust, and the attempt to advance
the self generated by the body. Only when the creative
spirit substitutes humility, joy, trust, love, virtue, peace, and
harmony does the eternal Buddha self emerge. This self is
the primal cause of all things as the infinite enters into its
pure nothingness to discover the creative freedom that
remakes the heavens, the gods, and the cosmic order.
Through this infinitesimal Buddha self, the old order is
endlessly blown out into the Nirvana of perfect peace and
The soul’s power as cause lies utterly outside the existing
world system. It is the spiritual essence symbolized by
Christ and Buddha that generate the Nirvana, the New
Heavens and the New Earth that lie utterly beyond.
D is for Detached:
God, Buddha, Christ, the immortal soul, Nirvana, the
ultimate cause do not exist in the world. The world of our
experience is the product of mechanisms of evolution in the
thermodynamics of various levels of emerging systems in
quantum relativity ordered space-time. Subjective reality
utterly transcends this visible space-time. Its source lies
utterly beyond, in the depths of the breaks, in the depths of
the nothingness that the soul generates in the fabric of
The core of our subjectivity is this pure Nirvana, this pure
Buddha Christ spirit, this Krishna as world destroying time
that remakes and reforms all things.
To find our true self, we must detach from the world and
enter into this pure nothingness, as described by Thomas
Merton in Seeds of Contemplation and in his writings on
the spirit of meditative Buddhism. When we access this
hidden self, we discover that it is the Oversoul described by
Emerson, the creative Spirit described by Thomas Troward
and Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind). It is the Kingdom of
Heaven described in Matthew and the creative freedom
described in the Dhammapada.
It is endlessly individualized in us only as we endlessly
give this independence back to the infinite from which it
came. When we seek to keep it. When we fail to detach
from it, it will fail. Then we will fade to a ghost. We will
become the meaningless subjectivity of the materialists.
F is for Fade:
This is why there is no proof of immortality. This is why
we cannot find our soul. This is why we have lost contact
with our previous existence. Our soul is dead. God is
dead. Immortality has faded away. Because our
attachment to this world has caused the transcendent to
fade, killing our soul, heaven, God, all the spiritual powers.
Our subjective freedom is a ghost trapped in the collapse of
our true being. We wander soulless in a self-created hell.
The body is our ruler. The brain is our jailer. We are
brought to life when it chooses to revive us. We are told by
it what to think and feel. It throws us scraps of pleasures
and brings our memories to life at its pleasure like old
movies played to entertain some tyrant king.
It loves to torture us with our powerlessness. It mocks our
slavery to its physiological states of being. It throws
depression and elation at us as it pleases. It generates anger
and passion that we cannot control. We are a ghost it has
called up from the depths of hell to animate its machinery,
to witness its processes as the prisoner of its mindless
whims. Yet hidden in this dance are the infinitesimal
remains of the spiritual kingdom, the invisible remains of
its power. Strangely, it is when we let go of our poor world
bitten egos, when we cease raging against the world for the
failure of our hopes, we can hear the hushed voice of its
harmony. We catch a glimpse of its light flickering
through a hidden window deep within. We are reminded of
that eternal freedom still shining in the depths of our heart.
G is for Genesis:
When connected to the infinite, that window is the genesis
of all things. There are no limits to its possibilities for it
emerges out of the boundless and operates in the pure
subjective unbound, prior to all limits, prior to all objects,
prior to all worlds of known and measurable things.
The world limits it, the body limits it, the flesh limits it,
only when we give the world and the body the power to
limit it. The world kills its, the world enslaves it, only
when we give the world that power. It dies only when we
allow the flesh to destroy it. It fades only when we allow
the body to wear it away.
When we keep it free from the world, when we keep it
innocent and unstained by the mistakes and problems of the
world, it soars into the endless and lifts us up into the
immortal and the good. Joy, love, beauty, virtue,
abundance, satisfaction, justice, eternity overcome the
limitations of the world and proclaim the coming of the
infinite kingdom. Our faith is the genesis of that new
world. We must believe in altruism and kindness, in beauty
In this sense Islam in its notion of total submission to the
transcendent, Buddhism in its notion of the total
otherworldly nature of the transcendent, Christianity in its
conception of the total triumph of the transcendent, capture
a core spiritual truth of spiritual genesis, in spite of their
use of this truth to support the world’s power structure.
H is for Humanism:
Humanism is the mother of the sciences that have remade
our understanding of the world. Islam, Buddhism, and
Christianity remind us of the need to seek refuge from the
world. Neoconfucianism and Neotaoism describe the
larger system to which the world and the transcendent
belong. Hinduism describes effect of that system on the
soul. New Thought describes the means by which the soul
can transcend this effect and any caste or karma thrown
upon it by the world.
Buddhism outlines the negative and Christianity the
positive aspects of the morals of the transcendent.
Neotaoism outlines the negative and New Thought the
positive aspects of the metaphysics of the transcendent.
Humanism reminds us of the rational limits of the material
world and the human species as an animal emergence
within that world.
Somehow we must keep our feet planted in that material
reality without allowing it to bind our souls. This world is
the product of the scientific system described by the
sciences generated by the Humanistic tradition. These
sciences are the only reliable source of information about
the natural world. There is nothing faulty about the
Humanist tradition that has generated modern science, the
democratic-liberal tradition, and liberal morality. The
problem lies with the skepticism that Humanism has used
to fight the superstition and dogmatism of the Church.
Too often that skepticism becomes a dogmatic denial of all.
I is for Interpretation:
Each soul develops its own unique interpretation of
metaphysics. Each soul is a unique timeline developing its
own unique progression. All public metaphysics is invalid
because each soul is the source of its own unique cosmic
evolution. There is a unique true metaphysics for the
eternal time dimension created by each monad of existence.
Each monad of existence is an infinitesimal rip in the
ultimate metaphysics through which the boundless pours to
radically reinterpret all things.
Each soul is the Buddha, the Krishna, the Christ of its own
unique interpretation of Nirvana, Brahman, Heaven, God
the Father, the Holy Virgin Mother. That unique
interpretation is bound to other interpretations to form the
cosmologic systems that generate astrology. The soul is
bound to other souls by its level of virtue, by its level of
faith and feeling. The order of virtue, of faith, of feeling
that the soul’s subjectivity attaches to determines the
astrology of its birth, death, and rebirth, determines the
system and level of its reincarnation.
Yet any negative thinking, and limited belief system that
attaches a soul to other souls, traps it in a hell. It becomes a
fallen angel because it fails to fulfill its Buddha role, its
role as a unique savior, a unique source of freedom, a
unique creative reinvention of the world.
The soul’s involvement in the existing order is caught up in
the astrology of its birth, death, and rebirth.
J is for Jiva:
There is no evidence for the existence of the Jiva in the
world. The Jiva, the soul, cannot be
found in the tamas guna that makes up the world or the
rajas guna that makes up the karma that generates the
world. The soul belongs to the sattva guna, to pure
subjectivity. In terms of the system described by the
German zoologist Bernard Rensch in this presentation at
the Darwinian Centennial at the University of Chicago in
1959, the soul does not belong to the laws of
correspondence (tamas) or the laws of coherence (rajas).
The soul belongs to the laws of parallelism
(phenomenological, existential inexistence).
The soul is the pure novelty generated when the existing
cosmology is punctured. The soul is an infinitesimal hole
in that cosmology through which the boundless moves to
generate a unique thread of endless time. The soul is the
novel differentiation of the possible, the extension of the
boundless through that dimension of the infinite. The soul
is the pure subjective possibility that creates the objective
actuality of the world.
The memory of the past is hidden in the cosmology that
generates astrological fate. Our current astrological
progression is the projection of the memory of our previous
existence in the larger system of our universe and the
collective unconscious supersystem that governs it.
Our true immortality exists in the subjective boundless.
K is for Karma:
The karma, the actions of our previous existence trap us in
the world of death. Within this world our previous
existence has reality only as the karma that controls the
nature of our current existence. Our previous life is dead
except as the karma that generates our current astrological
fate. True immortality exists only in the novelty where the
soul breaks free from the confines of this world and
generates novel possibility in the realm of the subjective
The Buddhists call this novel possibility “Nirvana” and the
state of breaking free that generates it enlightenment or
“Buddhamind.” The Christians, Jews, and Moslems call it
Heaven and the state of mind that generates it Christ, or
Salvation, of Grace, or the Holy Virgin, or the Prophet, or
the Word, or the Angel of God.
The New Thought movement calls this subjective
possibility the Spirit. The existing cosmology that the
Spirit endlessly fertilizes is the Law, the Dharma, the
Collective Unconscious. Included within the Collective
Unconscious is the existing Karma of previous lives and
states of mind. New Thought calls this collective product
“race thought,” because it is the collected negative thinking
of a community, or species of being, that enslaves it to a
lower level of evolutionary achievement. The Spirit (sattva
guna) fertilizes the Law of Attraction with its thoughts and
actions and causes it to react (rajas guna) to generate the
manifest world (the Body, or tamas guna).
L is for Lives:
Our previous lives are bound within the cosmology of the
world and the astrological systems that generate the world.
That immortality is a living death. The memory of our
previous existence is a faded ghost that is absorbed in our
attachment to our new existence.
The wheel of birth and death assimilates our previous lives.
The world digests our souls and uses the marrow of our
souls to fuel its systems of transmigration. Our unique
thread of time is twisted about the threads spun from other
souls till we are bound and trapped in hells and purgatories
that endlessly punish us for the relentless drama of our lust
The only salvation is to seek the Buddha, the Christ mind in
the heart where the soul breaks free of the world in the pure
subjective dreamtime of open creativity. Here the thread of
our immortality breaks free into the boundless magic of
pure possibility, of Nirvana, of Heaven, of the supernatural
void. This subjective kingdom is the realm of salvation, of
true immortal life.
This is a state of the Spirit characterized by a mind that
frees itself from its old order of thinking and puts its faith
and trust in a new order of love, of joy, of a New Heavens
and a New Earth. This is Nirvana. It is a state in which the
old order of negative thought and lust and greed is blow
out. The soul is left free to rejoin the boundless, to choose
love over hate, faith over fear, harmony over discord.
M is for Maya:
This subjective kingdom cannot be found in the objective
world. There is no evidence for it in any data of science, in
any public information. The world has no true knowledge
of it. The world’s vision of it is garbled by ideology and
dogma, and stained by intolerance and prejudice.
This is why the Buddhist rejects the Hindu attempt to use it
to justify the existence of priesthoods and castes that exist
to serve the gods. The Buddhist deny the ultimate validity
of this and point to something higher than any of the gods
that is a blowing out of all the emotions that attach one to
this world (Nirvana). This other reality is described as
gone, gone, gone. For Christianity, it is the ever coming
Kingdom, the God ( per the Lutheran theologian Wolfhart
Pannenberg) that only exists in the ultimate future.
The problem is a difficult one. We must avoid getting
trapped in Maya, in the illusion that this objective world is
the cause rather than the effect of our subjective state. But,
we must also avoid the dogmatic thought systems that the
world uses to justify exploitation and traditional systems of
power. For us, caste systems, dogmas, intolerance,
prejudice, the notion that one holy book is better than
another, must also be part of this Maya. It is an idolatry in
which we are deluded into the belief that any system within
the finite can capture the essence of the infinite.
There is no place to pray except the secret chamber, there is
no way to Heaven except though the depths of the heart.
O is for Out:
The way out is though subjective freedom, though Nirvana,
though the blowing out of the world, through the ever
coming kingdom of the ultimate future, the kingdom of the
endless Christmas of the heart. The way out is through our
own Narnia (children’s literature of C.S. Lewis) and our
New Thought describes this as a path of affirmation, a path
toward the Absolute, toward Cosmic Consciousness,
toward the Creative Spirit, toward the All Good. It is a
path of the First Cause, of the Word of God, of the Christ
Within. It is a state of union with the Creative Mind of the
Universe, Infinite Mind, Divine Mind, with Spiritual
Causation, it is Mystic Consciousness, it is spiritual Light
Affirmations of the following kind lay the foundations of a
faith that supports that power within: “I let go of everything
and enter into an awareness of joy and love, of good and
truth and beauty. God is all there is. The highest power is
the only power in my life. The Ultimate Spirit is my Spirit
and it enters into me in a unique way. It awakens my
creative power and my immortal life is reborn in the
kingdom of divine perfection and divine power. My
immortal life is a new dimension adding endlessly to all
existence with my unique gifts of love and joy, my unique
interpretation of the divine creativity. Today I am an agent,
an angel, an avatar of God touching everything with God’s
truth, beauty, love, and justice.”
P is for Power:
This subjective creativity is the power that renews the soul.
It allows the soul to remain attached to the body because it
replaces the energy the body draws from the soul with the
unending supply of energy out of the boundless. This is the
miracle; this is the magic that remakes Heaven and Earth.
It turns greed into generosity, it turns lust into altruism, it
turns pride into productivity. It resurrects the old world in
the new. It is the endless Easter of the world. It is the
endless grace that saves all things.
It is the power of affirmation that is extolled in New
Thought. It is the liberation of Yoga, the Nirvana of the
Buddhist enlightenment. It is the soul’s realization of its
connection with Infinite Mind and the power of that
connection to make all things new, to make all things
possible. It is the ever coming Kingdom of God.
This power can only be described with the language of the
old systems. Therefore, the wise have called it
indescribable. New Thought in the West and Zen in the
East have attempted to describe the process whereby its
hidden presence can be used announce the entrance of
Divine Mind into the world at a new and higher level of
The ancients called this kingdom of the ever coming
boundless “Dreamtime” or “Zamani”. The Buddhists
called it “Nirvana.” The Polynesians called it “Mana.”
Q is for Quartet:
This subjectivity, boundless supply, is the result of the
ultimate endlessly exceeding itself according to the
understanding of logic inspired by Godel. The highest
levels of organization are broken open by the infinitesimal
pinhole of the soul. The soul draws the cosmic order out
into a new freedom that endlessly weaves a new dimension
to cosmic hyperspace. Out of the weave together of the
soul’s new dimension of the endless with other threads
comes the emergence of the space-time of particular
Always this subjective becoming is open to alternative
possibilities as it weaves its colors through the landscape of
alternative quantum reality. This hidden subjectivity
weaves a quartet of secondary realities: quantum
indeterminacy, space-time relativity, hierarchies of systems
organization, the natural world as the effect of the prior
three. Thus: Openness, Synthesis, Model, and Nature.
This quartet is the reflection of a prior quartet that
generates it. That quartet begins with subjectivity as the
creative Spirit. The creative Spirit sets in motion the
universal order, Dharma or Law, the Collective
Unconscious. Out of the operation of its mechanisms
comes the thermodynamics of the world. The visible world
generates evolution that awakens the subjectivity of its
creatures in the form of conscious mind. This mind
awakens the hidden subjectivity within to spin a new thread
out of the boundless. Thus: Spirit, Law, Body, and Mind.
R is for Realization:
Humans are generally stuck in the lower quartet. They are
caught up in the systems that maintain the various levels of
organization that are evolving in the natural world. The
human brain is composed of quantum events organized into
protons and electrons of atoms that are bound together into
molecules. These molecules are organized into the cells of
the human organism.
The human organism is structured by the language and
culture that it absorbs as it develops. Civilized cultures are
structured by written and printed language. Modern
civilization is structured in turn at a cybernetic and a
computer program level of information storage. These
levels of organization are aspects of a natural world that is
structured at a microscopic level by quantum indeterminacy
and at a cosmic level by space-time relativity.
New Thought asks us to recognize that the objective world
described by the quartet of systems models, quantum
indeterminacy, cosmic relativity, and natural form is a
manifestation, a physical world generated out of a higher
system, a universal mind. This universal mind has a
creative aspect that is pure boundlessness, pure possibility.
The subjective aspect of our individual mind enters into
that subjectivity as an endless thread of creative becoming.
When we discover the subjectivity of our mind as this
Nirvana, we enter into the Buddha realization. We enter in
to Christ Consciousness. We discover ourselves as Spirit.
S is for Spirit:
When we discover the creative Spirit as the subjectivity
that is the source of creation, we discover that we are
Divine Mind in action, that we are Christ Consciousness,
that we are Buddhamind. At that point we enter the
Kingdom of Heaven, we become the coming of God’s
Kingdom from within.
This plants the seeds of creativity in the law of attraction
that resurrects our body and our world into a new order of
being. We cease to live in death. We are reborn to eternal
life. We turn the Karma of the Dharma wheel in the
direction of the Buddha principle. We enter Nirvana and it
sets us free from bondage to birth and rebirth. We are
Cosmic Consciousness in which all things are made new.
Buddhism and New Thought both teach us to ignore
theology and astrology because they are about the world of
race thought, the old world of limited thinking. Nirvana,
Creative Spirit is a blank slate, it is pure creative possibility
that is able to be and do all things good.
We must detach from this old world of negative thinking
that tells us what we can do, that thinks in terms of
problems and limits. The Spirit puts us in touch with
creative subjectivity and its boundless possibilities. In
Spirit we are free to attach to whatever order of being our
mind invests in. We reap as we sow; it is done unto us, as
we believe. This miracle is not in the natural world but in
the ground that makes the natural world possible.
T is for Tangible:
It is difficult to believe in this spiritual reality, this spiritual
immortality, this spiritual creativity because it originates in
the utterly transcendent, it originates in Nirvana, in
Dreamtime. It does not belong to the world but to the
Kingdom of the Ultimate Future. It is totally subjective.
Its objective aspect is a reflection only and has no primary
power, no deep causal influence or meaning.
This goes against all our training. We are taught to believe
in the tangible. We believe in a tangible God that came in
the flesh. We believe in a tangible Church with tangible
holy words and sacraments. We believe in tangible
evidence for our science and our history. It is difficult for
us to believe in intangible things. Yet, the Spirit is the
utterly intangible, the utterly beyond.
This intangible source is the necessary beginning of all
tangible objective things. Its creation emerges from the
necessary freedom out of which order and form are
structured. It is the essential invisible in which the visible
Those who insist on making all things tangible would have
form with out any background to generate it, effects
without causes to generate them, creation without creativity
to create it. They would have energy that endlessly winds
down to entropy without anything to wind it up. They
would have all meaning in superficial objects and deny
meaning to the deeper subjectivity within.
U is for Ultimate:
Yet, our true reality is that Ultimate, that Divine Mind, that
Infinite Intelligence, that Creative Spirit. The forms we see
are the outer clothing of that deeper subjective meaning.
The Buddha realization is the discovery of the boundless
Nirvana, is the discovery of the identity of my Spirit and
Divine Mind. No longer am I punishing myself by
attachment to my belief that I am just a body, just flesh.
No longer must I use greed, and lust, and pride to fill my
needs. Released from the punishment, from the purgatory,
from the hell of desire, free from astrological fate, free
from race thought, I am the creative Spirit; I am Nirvana
making all things new.
Through faith in my Ultimate nature, I rediscover the Christ
Mind, the Creative Spirit and it renews my body and my
world. The flesh is resurrected into a New Earth. My soul
is liberated into a New Heavens. My belief in the Christ
within has saved me from the hell of my self-punishing
greed and hate. My positive affirmations of Divine Love
and Forgiveness have set me free from sin and I become
the Son of God entering the Kingdom of God that has come
in my heart. The Christmas of the soul has joined the
Easter of the Spirit in the triumph of Infinite Mind over
limited belief. The key to this new Buddha state is found in
the first verse of the Dhammapada, which tells us that
everything we are is the result of what we have thought. I
affirm Buddha mind. I affirm Christ mind. My world and
my flesh are renewed, resurrected in Nirvana-Heaven.
V is for Victory:
Existence is either victory or self-punishing desire
depending on my faith. If I enter into the Dreamtime of
subjectivity in a state of affirmation of the power of
Dreamtime, of the Creative Spirit, of the Easter of the
Christ, of the Christmas of the Holy Virgin, of the
Prophecy of Islam, that affirmation will give me victory
over the world.
My faith will set me free. My affirmation of the Divine
Kingdom will plant seeds that will grow in the soul of the
Collective Unconscious that will renew the world as the
perfect fruit of the Kingdom. The Kingdom of Divine
Mind will return.
It is my limited faith that punishes me. Believing my self
to be flesh rather than Spirit, object of the world rather than
creator of the world, I strive in the world to achieve my
expectations through greedy actions. I struggle to get my
share of power in the world by attempting to win that
power from others. This state of mind is sin, it is
mistakened. I create a hell through my continued belief in
these self-limiting thoughts and my continued investment
in these self-punishing actions.
My attachment to the body is a result of my self-punishing
failure to accept reality. I have expectations of the world
that are unrealistic, that cannot be meant. I expect the
world to fulfill my needs for joy and love. I assert my
special status in the world in pursuit of my desires.
W is for World:
The world is a place where I attempt to advance my pride
positions. These pride positions are based on self-
punishing expectations that cannot be meant. I fail to
recognize the reality of my weakness, that my pride
positions are self-punishing illusions. Exorbitant
expectations, impossible standards, are self hating ways
that I fail to accept the limitations of a finite world and
punish myself for attaching to a body that cannot meant my
The failure of these expectations, the failure of these
desires can be used as an excuse for torturing ourselves, for
entering a depression because we were not able to live up
to these expectations. There reality is that life in a finite
world is tough. We die. We grow old. We cannot fulfill
all of our desires all of the time.
When we accept the reality of the world and its limitations
we cannot detach from our need to make it into a paradise
and our need to set ourselves up and princes and kings in
some sort of perfect place where we are immune to death
The solution is to affirm the perfection of our Spirit. The
body is only a reflection of the Spirit. The body is finite;
the world is limited by its finite parts. Perfect peace and
joy are products of the inner kingdom, not the external
world. The Divine Mind within us is the source of our
victory over the world.
X is for Xenos:
The Spirit is something strange, something alien to the
world. It is Nirvana, it is transcendent, it is gone, gone,
gone, gone utterly beyond. The Spirit is the creative xenos,
the creative stranger to the world that remakes all things.
We torture ourselves when we try to make the body
immortal. We torture ourselves when we try to make the
body perfect, beautiful, give it winning power. The body
must fail because it is finite. The world must fail us
because it is a place of norms and averages, not of nobility
and extraordinary achievement. All our specialness will
fail when we attempt to overcome the reality of the world.
Immortality exists in the inner world of the subjective
Spirit. Perfection exists in the boundless kingdom of the
Infinite Mind. By affirming this deep resource and its
power for good, we can detach from our attempt to find this
goodness in the struggles of the public world. We can
enjoy our body as a local and limited manifestation of the
unlimited powers of Universal Intelligence.
Scientific realism helps us discover the proper use of the
flesh. The flesh is a local and finite manifestation of the
endless one. Our soul is a unique interpretation of that
endless ground. We do not need to seek imperial powers in
the world. Our true freedom exists in our soul and its
ability to make all things new in the ever-novel realm of the
Spirit. When we discover that we are xenos, that we are
from beyond, we can detach from the world as a savior.
Y is for Youth:
There is no immortality in the world. When we attach to
the world and the flesh, our immortality fades. The world
and the flesh cannot fulfill our desires and expectations.
Attempting to find eternal youth and beauty in the finite is
a hopeless enterprise of self-punishment. We must accept
our limitations, our weaknesses, our failures, our aging and
It is the creative Spirit within that is immortal, that has
endless youth that endlessly renews and reinterprets all
things. When we invest our resources in that inner youth,
we discover a beauty and a renewal that will not fail. The
subjective is a dimension of the boundless and has no end
in time or space. It transcends time and space and the
limitations of the flesh and the world.
The mental condition that seeks eternal youth, seeks perfect
satisfaction in the flesh is unrealistic. Buddhism teaches us
to seek the truth in respect to the flesh. Christianity
encouraged the growth of the sciences in order to discover
the truth about the finite world. But, the truth about the
finite is not the truth about the infinitesimal and the infinite.
Here it is possible to experience the eternal youth of the
soul, of the endlessly creative Spirit.
The Christian metaphor for this eternal youth is found in
the symbols of Christmas and Easter. The Hindu metaphor
is found in the eternal youth of Krishna in Brindiban, in the
endless reincarnation of Vishnu as Krishna, Christ, Buddha.
Z is for Zamani:
Zamani is the African word for the Dreamtime, for the
subjective, for Nirvana, for the Beyond. The natural world
comes out of the Zamani into the limited and bound, into
temporary time and returns back to the unlimited. All
things are immortal in the Zamani and mortal in the
The great truth of science is the finiteness of the finite. The
finite must be known through the particle and the atom and
the cell. It must be known through the partial and the
tentative, through experiment and observation. The great
truth of religion is the boundlessness of the infinite. The
infinite must be known through the dream and the vision.
It must be known through the holistic, whole, wholesome,
and holy, through mysticism and faith.
Before we can see heaven, we must clear the eyeglass of
earth. We must admit the earthly reality. We must admit
the problems of the finite, the limitations of the finite. We
must abandon our selfish attempts to grab the infinite
through pride positions, through self-punishing lust and
greed. Once we face the limits of the finite, we can focus
on the infinitesimal mustard seed of the soul through which
the light of the infinite can pour if we are able to fill it with
just a bit of faith.
This is the faith that brings salvation, this is the realization
that brings the Buddha, brings the love of Krishna, brings
the ever coming Kingdom of God, the Creative Spirit.
E is for Evolution:
Evolution is the result of the thermodynamic dissipation of
energy toward entropy and the development of competition
in energy dissipative structures. Evolution is the
manifestation in the finite world of endless progressions
within the boundless. The boundless forever expands
beyond itself according to a Godel like endlessly self-
exceeding numerical relationship. The emergence of
energy in the finite to decay into entropy and drive
evolution is an expression of the endless expansion of the
subjective source of the objective world.
New Thought metaphysics describes the hidden beginning
that is the source of this visible emergence. The visible
emergence begins with the Creative Spirit that fertilizes the
ground of being with the seed of the manifest world. This
seed germinates in this soil to form the world we see.
The soul rips the existing world open so that the boundless
can expand into a greater boundless. Where it gashes the
infinite, the boundless endlessly pours through forming
new dimensions of infinite space-time. The threads that
endlessly pour through these rips adhere together and
weave a cloth upon the loom of existing cosmology.
This loom is the soil of existing system, of astrology, of
metaphysics, of theology. It is the Collective Unconscious,
the womb, the Holy Spirit of God. It is the Dharma wheel.
The seeds planted within are the Karma that turns it. This
Karma generates the evolution of the finite worlds.
N is for New:
There is a New World of Metaphysics and an Old World of
Metaphysics. The Old World of Metaphysics is the
Dharma, is the existing order of cosmology expanded into
greater cosmology, of finite life generating birth and rebirth
in an infinite system of heavens and hells, of universes
beyond this universe in an endless series.
The New World is generated where the infinitesimal
creativity of the soul rips this old system open and allows it
to endlessly expand into something new. This New World
is Nirvana, is the Creative Spirit, is the Brindiban of
Hinduism, the ever coming Heaven of Christian salvation,
of Islamic prophecy.
The soul generates immortal time threads, immortal threads
of primary causation as the infinite pours out of its pure
generativity. These threads are woven into the cloth of the
world on the loom-womb of the Collective Unconscious,
on the order of the infinite law of attraction, the infinite
system of the Dharma. The creative activity of these
threads and their combinations is the Karma that turns the
wheel of the Dharma. This Karma manifests as the energy
of evolution, the processes and events of the visible world.
In this process of adhering together to make the world. The
threads of pure subjectivity become attached to particular
objects, become incarnated in physical bodies, become
attached to the flesh. Once attached to the flesh, they
forget their origin in the endless and their original freedom.
K is for Karma (Continued):
The previous existence is continued at its level of
organization (Value, Virtue) in the system of the metacosm.
It becomes part of the basic astrology that determines the
point of rebirth. The new body develops its own unique
mind and is open to choices that allow it to develop in
To the extent that these directions are at animal or atomic
levels of being, that they are selfish and angry and
primitive, what is generated is a local hell in which the new
incarnation is trapped at a low level of biological or social
evolution. The soul that has its time line wrapped around
the rebirth cycles of a low level system is trapped in hell.
Astrological forces generating such imprisonment are
associated with Saturn, Mars, and Pluto. These planets
symbolize the more primitive aspects of the evolution of
cosmic intelligence (demonic or satanic, concerned with
war and security).
These memories, these previous lives need to be liberated
from hell and death. They need to be liberated from
attachment to the world and the world’s primitive systems.
This is called “moksha” in the East. The tangle of birth and
rebirth is “samsara.” The cause of samsara, the individual
twists are “karma.” The system that they twist about is
“dharma.” The levels of karma are the “gunas.”
Tight bondage to the world is “tamas.” The process of
binding is “rajas.” Opening up to moksha is “sattva.”
Tamas generates a level of bondage that is called “hell” and
“sin” or “evil” in the West and “Maya” or illusion in the
East. Rajas generates what is called “purgatory” in the
West. Sattva generates what is called “heaven” in the West
and “Nirvana” or “Brahman” or “Purusha” or “Samadhi” in
Samadhi is what liberates the individual “Jiva,” “Buddha,”
or “Atman” (Soul or Logos or Christ-mind in the West).
Purusha is the transcendence that accomplishes the
liberation. Nirvana is the ocean of boundless subjective
void the Buddha enters. Brahman is this void as the One or
Absolute of the West (Hen of the Neoplatonic trinity).
In New Thought terminology, Sattva, Buddha, Samadhi,
Moksha is the Spirit. Dharma is the Law. Maya and the
Gunas are the Body. Tamas is a body bound to Maya, to
the physical plane. Rajas is energy and change. Sattva is a
body that reflects the Spirit and thus is liberated into the
Spirit. Rajas generates the Karma that turns the Law.
Only at the Sattva level does the time thread lift free
enough from the Karma turns of the Dharma law, from
samsara (birth and rebirth) that the soul has access to
memories of its past lives. This access generates liberation,
salvation, Moksha. This state of liberation generates a
return to the primal cause, to the creative essence: Buddha,
Christ, Spirit, Samahdi. This state is a resurrection of the
body and a salvation of the soul in the heaven of Christ, of
the second coming, of the new kingdom of the boundless,
of the Amidha Buddha that emerges from pure Nirvana.
This is a total destruction of the tamas body and the Maya
self that is totally bound to the tamas body. The resurrected
body is free from sin, free from tamas flesh, from sinful
flesh. All that is left is the selfless Buddha self that is
detached from the flesh (moska). This detached Buddha
self is the infinitesimal drawing out the infinite, is endlessly
entering Nirvana and generating Buddhamind (Purusha,
This state is an endless dance of the Son (Buddha), the
Father (Nirvana), and the Holy Spirit (Buddhamind), of
Sattva (Atman, Jiva, Avatar), Purusha (God), and Brahman.
The Purusha dances as Spirit (Brahma), the dance of the
Spirit (Shiva), and the fulfillment of the Spirit in Brahman
(Vishnu). Brahma is the threads of the infinitesimal
entering the infinite, Shiva is the dancing of the threads,
and Vishnu is their union with the boundless (Brahman).
In this world of tamas, of attachment of the infinitesimal
threads, of the jiva-soul-monad time lines attachment to the
physical, of their tight winds around low level birth and
rebirth, there is little awareness of the content of past lives.
The root of the past lives is buried in the winding of birth
and rebirth that generates the astrology that determines the
fate of the current life. That fate is deeply buried in the
systems of attachment the soul has generated with lower
levels of the finite.
In this world, subjectivity behaves as the prisoner of the
body. The Christians call this “original sin,” in the East it
is Maya, the illusion of the bondage of the Spirit.
New thought calls the collective bondage “race thought.”
Race thought generates world systems of Maya. In the East
these world systems are called “loki” and the periods of
their evolution are called “kalpa.” In the West we call them
“universes” and the time periods “ages.”
The birth and rebirth of our time thread binds it to other
time threads generating the thermodynamic processes of
this world of space-time, this universe of relativity (binding
together of separate threads). The coming together of the
threads generates relativity, the process of their coming
together involves thermodynamics, and the individual
events of which the threads are made are the quantum
events of quantum mechanics (strings of string theory).
The threads only exist as threads on the subjective side. All
that emerges in the finite is the strings and quantum events
they generate. This subjectivity appears to be a secondary
effect from the finite side. Its causal, primary nature, is not
empirically demonstrable. This condition in which the
finite appears to be the cause of the infinitesimals (Buddha)
regeneration of the infinite (Nirvana) is known as Maya,
cosmic illusion in the East.
Science will never reveal this system. Science is caught in
the visible and the finite and the deeper truth exists in the
invisible and the boundless. Immortality will never be
proven in the visible because the visible as primary is the
death, the destruction of immortality. Only the invisible as
primary restores the immortal cause, the pure creative
Spirit (Christ, Buddha, Kingdom of Heaven).
True metaphysics can never be physics. True astrology can
never be astronomy. Metaphysics and astrology transcend
science just as Heaven transcends Earth.
This is why salvation comes by faith and love. Only faith
and love can generate the higher knowledge. Knowledge
bound to perception can never leave the finite.
Science liberates the powers of the world at the expense of
bondage to the world. Science gives us a clear glass to see
the finite at the expense of being stuck to the glass like a fly
When we attempt to contact the roots of our soul and our
previous lives while attached to this body, all we do is
tangle these threads more deeply about this body of
attachment. The only solution is to seek these roots in love
and meditation rather than through perception and memory
and thought. All the thoughts and perceptions and
memories constructed by the brain, to which we are
currently attached, only attach us more.
We must seek the pure subjectivity that generates the
attachment. We must return to the Buddha, Nirvana root.
That is why Zen teaches us to avoid the confusions
generated by the attempt to use Maya to liberate ourselves
from Maya. That is why the Sermon on the Mount tells us
to go into our chamber to pray, to avoid the religion that
only binds us further to the greed and pride of the world.
L is for Lives (Continued):
The soul is the infinitesimal root endlessly extended into
the novel. The world is its opposite. It is a temporary
assembly of a public space. The world emerges from the
finite quantum now into the boundless all-time and all-
space of the hyperspace whole that is the opposite of the
The finite breaks the soul’s eternal time line by punctuating
it with death and rebirth. The boundless whole is the only
weapon the soul can use against this breakage.
The soul is eternal and infinitesimal. A Carbon Atom takes
up a tiny finite space and endures for billions of years. A
mouse population takes up much more space and lasts for
much less time. The hypercosmic whole is a boundless
instant of time.
The soul manifests in the world according to the level of
organization it attaches to and the virtues and values it is
faithful to in thought and deed. Only the boundless good,
only the Nirvana of the Buddha, the Future Kingdom of the
Christ can salve the soul from its bondage to the world.
