Observing, breathing, mantra..
It’s evening and you are in your room, observing the walls, the ceiling, the bookcase with all the books that you have read and all those that are waiting their turn.. you’re observing all the shelfs with all the decorative objects of all types, figurines, pieces of wood and the closet with all your unfinished work and all the materials. You are feeling your bed, the soft texture of your blanket, the feeling of coziness… A thought about what you did today passes by and another about what you will be doing tomorrow comes. Both thoughts merge and become what they were in the beginning, dissolving into nothingness.
And you are reciting continuously inward…
OM MANI PADME HUM
You are feeling through the floor, ceiling and walls what are your neighbors experiencing. You already know what’s real and yet it’s just the mind. You are reading their code of experience, the emotions, the thoughts like an open book. It’s as though you could see beyond matter the field in which every being creates an atmosphere of reality around them. They are like planets which float in the universe. It’s just like a hologram around them, nothing tangible, but they are playing with the projection like they are holding real dolls in their arms. Like a little girl that is seriously imagining that the doll from the stroller is really crying and needs solace. But for them it’s real, the hologram is appearing like a smoke which takes on density from the gestures and validity with which they choose to see the projection. And they are suffering, suffering without even understanding why. You are in the emptiness of the universe and you see such beings, every one of them more and more distant. And you always recite inwardly ….
OM MANI PADME HUM
The presence and the range of awareness is expanding and you observe even more distant beings. Every one of them identically busy with their own atmosphere, standing with their backs turned on each other and completely blind. They do not observe the vast universe behind them nor beyond their atmosphere of projections. Little dots in the field of existence, busy only with what appears to be just themselves.
And OM MANI PADME HUM
You expand the range of awareness further and even more beings appear, with the same tendencies, same prime pursuit — their own atmosphere.
OM MANI PADME HUM
The awareness expands further and further and in the distance a being appears that doesn’t have an atmosphere, but instead it’s just watching around same as you do. From time to time the being sends out a pulse all around, in a spherical range, like a star dust, refined, penetrating, strong and gentle. And that dust touches the beings around her. To some it causes them to float further away as they are annoyed by the lights which penetrate in their atmosphere. To others it causes them to draw near her, as it temporary shuts down their atmosphere in a flash, they seem to hear something and become curious. The projections seem to stop being so compelling for them. You want to get closer..
And OM MANI PADME HUM
That being is more accustomed with this than you are, it seems that it has been doing this for quite some time. When she sends a new pulse now it touches you too… And surprise, you recognize it.
It’s OM MANI PADME HUM.
Melody, compassion, everything and nothing, like a precious jewel, wisdom, peace. Now you can see how the other beings draw near and near to her, like a blind man that is walking through the darkness towards the source of the music. As they reach her, they stop generating projections on a constant level, their holographic atmosphere rhythmically dissolves, with each pulse that touches them. Those that came very close to her generate such a translucent hologram that they become sincerely curious about what is beyond her. They close their eyes and without understanding why, they start generating pulses also, weaker ones, but they touch one another and the being that is constantly pulsating and thus everything is amplified.
You close your eyes and OM MANI PADME HUM
You open your eyes and you discover that the number of beings that no longer generate an atmosphere has grown, and in the places where they have converged, a background light is created. A diffused light that appears like a refined dust of gold in the emptiness of the universe. And there is quiet. That space becomes in itself a bigger center that generates a more wider pulse. It also penetrates you.. Here and there you notice that beings form groups and converge as such and the transformations occur faster and faster. The pulses almost become like a rhytmic dance further in the distance, happening all over.
And you still constantly recite OM MANI PADME HUM.
With your eyes closed you can feel the rhythmic continuous pulse of all the beings around, you hear the music and quiet, the grace and toughness… and then you open the eyes. Now you notice with wonder that almost all beings are pulsating together. There are just a few left which are still stubbornly trying to run, and to maintain an atmosphere to perpetuate their suffering… believing that it’s their only way out. But they are surrounded and embraced from all directions by the pulses of the infinite groups of beings. And thus eventually they let go and naturally embrace the group becoming as one with it. You observe how amazed they are to realize that they were affraid of the very thing that they were seeking as salvation and so they reply with a pulse of gratefulness which unites and harmonizes all beings in an intimate manner.
And you close your eyes again still reciting OM MANI PADME HUM
It appears that there is no more gaps, no limit anywhere. It’s a full universe, harmonized and free in the same time. It’s light and dark, pace and enthusiasm, wisdom and silence, activity and stillness. All of a sudden you have a revelation and you realize that everything you saw was just your mind. And you lift the eyelids, and the eyes fall on the mirror in front of you. All your body is glowing in a clear, continuous, profound rhythm. All those beings were just in your mind, they were each cell in the epidermis, muscles, veins, blood, organs, liquids, bones, marrow…they were the vacuum itself of each cell.
OM MANI PADME HUM resounds strong and long, unceasingly, from each pore.
And you thought you were changing the world… you thought that you had a body, but now it has vanished. All space becomes that glowing light merged with the emptiness, which your body appeared like before. There is no mirror, bed, furniture and body no more. It’s the mind that OM MANI PADME HUM and the gentle but sharp luminosity, profound but subtile, silent but active everywhere. It’s the mind in all directions. A formless jewel.
Hence.. OM MANI PADME HUM…. for the sake of all living beings.
“The universe is connected and alive and we are a part of the metric of space.” -Nassim Haramein
“Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance.” — Nikola Tesla
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” ― Eckhart Tolle
“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.” ― Alan Watts
“We are most probably here for local information-gathering and local-Universe problem-solving in support of the integrity of eternally regenerative Universe.” –Buckminster Fuller
“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us. ” — Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.” — R.C. Henry, Professor of physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University
