Annutara Samyok Sambodhi III

This was shared by Roy A.E. Hodges (2021) in IRC Undernet #buddhism (21:27 – 21:38).

The dominant cultures of the nations taken as “west” rely heavily on internal locus of control (Rotter, 1966), and self-identity, due to favorable regional geographies, most likely amplified this internal orientation through aspects of culture which makes for difficulty in understanding dhamma which is revealed by cultures dominated by resource inequities engendering external locus of control.

Since the last three turnings of the wheel were generated in cultures already exposed to external orientations, it will be, is, and was easy for beings in these cultures to realize from linguistics of these cultures.

In order to globalize the revelatory truths of buddha dhamma, the linguistics of a culture of realization, is therefore adapted to the cultural’s materiality, cognitions (inclusive of language), and norms.

That said, the empirical evidence of science and mathematics does reveal quite directly, upon investigation the findings of external locus of control orientations. However, comma, the role of identity in organizing and facilitating editing functions by way of a map of cognition informs material movements and flows and thereby the normalization of behaviors.

A Buddha therefore manifests the principle of Annutara Samyok Sambodhi, which is roughly an ability to join disparate aspects of a culture to readily point individuals and instruct them as to simultaneously enlighten and bring together enlightened beings in order to amplify and gather for the purpose of liberating the wasp providing pollen and propagating the fig providing instruction of the buddha’s primary cultural tree.

This simultaneous activity is nothing other than a superpositional ability in immediately shuttling sensory impressions, feelings, cognitions, mental structural motion, and pure awareness… in an effort to unbind the net of these same very things that ensnares beings from maximum potential. Where maximum potential is manifestative effect simultaneous to maximum efficiency.

[Supervalent…]
Superconductive Superpositional mastery, and herein lies the fundamental flaw of samsara. It is impossible within the context of samsara to measure liberation. Therefore it is impossible for one being to liberate another through thought, word, or deed. As these are measures.

So… until you yourselves know,
that knowing… is not self,
and
this is accompanied by joy,
delivered by love, and
authenticated by compassion, and
finally resting in the accomplishment of its delivery.
for the benefit of all beings
equanimity.
the restorer of worlds.

Movies tend…

This was in #buddhism, Undernet IRC, post references to Dune…

“Movies tend…” yes this is true… like gardening… of course… such is the breeding program unguided and largely chaotic. Yes there were attempts at controlling breeding for particular outcomes in social influence of the birthing of genius yet it was partly disbanded. Yet in many industries, inclusive of politic, the tools and resources powered the breeding of consumption under the houses of brands.

“Less or more intellectual”, this is an interchangeable indicator for consumer quotient, as in what level of work is involved in the creation of a moving of sensory impressions in rhythmic and harmonic effect in order to produce the same in the secretions of neurotransmitters, which is optimized on certain axis, enveloping and bathing certain areas of the neural topology riding upon the carrier wave of a body for pleasures or in some cases pain. Which in those cases ricochet in order to produce beta-endorpines which have their neurochemical side effects too.

The viscerality is proportional to that primal consumptive brain of yes indeed like and as the worm, a raw body of a tube, moving… so it is only natural that the spice, that interchangeable indicator for neurotransmission itself evolving, much like what was discovered of the cephalopodic abilities in neurologically manipulating their own RNA.

So it makes sense that the worm of sand naturally produced this spice… as that was seen directly… consumption reducing grok-ability, this substance that allows true seeing, and for some, with the ability to reside in tranquility. From that place… this base… prescience is inverted, the entire sphere is inverted, yet in every nuanced direction, all cardinality is inverted.

It’s not that the future is seen as it was passed, it’s that the future is made, constructed, quite plainly as valences of fragmentation of the crystal remaining as this very sand.

So now this assembly requires an essential element, which by nature, nature-less…

-less into ness, as it is a quality… this control which seems to be another is another-less, as intentions are these very grains of sand that the worm eats…

The worm of this body eats, literally, into nibbana, beyond into… the horizon the reverend mothers cannot look… these reverend mothers being the interchangeable indicator of the very leaders of religions themselves…

The awakened eats every known.

And beyond the border of knowing.

Eating and groking the very notion of becoming… beyond…

Becoming Beyond

Thus come, thus gone

The bridge between these is as the lotus from the mud.

And what is mud?

Yet more refined sand.

Mixed with what?

Water.

And who brings the water?

Yes…

And what is the name?

Tathagatha

That concludes the lecture on the worm.

~

When working with diplomatic details, the though occurred one day when a close friend was walking into a park, she was looking at trees, and the entirety of the relationship shifted, it became evident that the entirety of language over many years was about something way more immediate.

All of the words, all of the language, the body language, the nuance, the roughness, of which roughness was little, mind you…

Was an effort to guide, not as a driver of some cart pulled by horses, but by another thing entire. It took many more years to develop this skill, the skill of those in diplomatic communities, yet it is nonsensical, at times, there are entire teams of individuals attached to the cultural attache that examine words and behaviors.

Yet the words are very immediate. And then after developing this further, realizing that while the grasping mind may mistake and be confused by the “confusion wave”, some called it, there were latent seeds of communication.

And this effort of sincerely digging in and working in understanding another, silently or actively, really not speaking to them at “their level”, as oft the mechanation of education in service of economation… this effort is valuable.

It was in the interest of what someone was saying.

And the words pointed to exactly what was being seen, regardless of the flower and font of a designer’s choosing.

And stepping back from this, it is apparent, that people’s lives have been, are, and continue to be happier, even in the finding of temporary happiness for the words are reflected back, in signs and symbols wrapped around seeds, just as trunk and leaf.

Yet only a truly skilled mind can see the benefit, for this work is below the earth, unseen.

Is their life improving, is there a betterment, is the magnitude and direction going the right way? Yes it is.

And looking into this channel it appears so.

Besides anatta is chief amongst viewless views.

The opining for “I am” is vast, and just as a monkey’s paw stuck in pitch, the other paw, will fight tooth and nail any assistance while attempting to free the other paw. Yet the skill is in setting forth something beneficial as medicine between the thrashing of resisting. And that tiny little medicine is the very sign, that maybe, just maybe arrests one minor tiny thrash.

And that medicine? It is mindfulness, meditation, absorption even in a fraction of a second… a thrash arrested.

This benefits then thousand lifetimes, ten thousand being the ceiling of numbers in many cultures… hence it means limitless.

And the last thing to share, why share these arcane meanings like “ten thousand this…”, “ten thousand that…”?

Because if there is any ounce of interest in reading ancient texts, these are the fragments vast… and it will provide ancient assistance, to stop a thrash yet, now, undone.

That is enough for now.

~~

So this kind of speaking is not used in continual communication, for this kind of speaking, while more descriptive, is just that… descriptive. It is far more valuable for this group, the practice of mindful awareness post meditation, in the acknowledgement and sharing of the burning off of conceptualization and that burning off reveals the fruits of attainment, and these fruits burn defilement brighter still.

So no this kind of speaking is not fit for this group, not for the asuras.

Just as coffee was once used as a medicine yet now used in service of addictions concentrated by mechanations, so too is the dhamma once used as medicine yet now used in service of addictions concentrated by religions.

To use this very ability as a medicine, a tincture, a tea, for the inducement of tranquility and arriving at insight not by other, not by self, not by we, not by they… truly it is as a turtle sticking (stoic) its (king) head through (Mithras) a small (all) hole, in a stick, amongst the oceans (oceanic) vast. And what motion could possibly still the entirety of samsara?

Meditation.

on the first heap, form

[22:13] <manji> hello
[22:17] <manji> there are these five heaps, taken for self… and abbreviated by conceit are taken for self, for mine, for other, for aggregation of these fives near, as we, and aggregation of these fives far, as them…
[22:18] <[redacted]> hello skandha heap that names itself manji 🙂
[22:19] <manji> form, object cognizable, via the senses… form being an abbreviation for these… enumerated in full as objects of vision, forms of colors, of edges as lines, of shapes…. of brightnesses and dullnesses…. of sound, of harmony, of dissonance, of high frequencies and low frequencies, of combinations of these… of smells and textures of intensities and odors in combinations here too…
[22:20] <manji> of tastes… the tastes many diverse in combination and simplicities…
[22:20] <manji> of sensations on the body, of skin, of heat and many combinations and simplicities so to here…
[22:21] <manji> these are represented by aspects of hardness, congealing, a cooling, as of the earth… solid, form…
[22:21] <manji> and aspects of fluidity… melting… liquid… moving like fats… and sinew…
[22:21] <manji> so on to fire, heats moving about, radiating, upward when still, gentle… like a calm flame… yet quick during activities
[22:22] <manji> and so… moving the heats… wind… moves in combination with… the winds of the senses… radiating… separating
[22:22] <manji> as with death… dissapating
[22:22] <manji> so it is, to emptiness… to space… vast, limitless
[22:22] <manji> this is all abbreviated… form.
[22:24] <manji> the practitioner drawing near, hearing, then inclining to comprehend, right here, right now, upon hearing, considers… and applies… and exerts awareness of these forms, to realize unbinding to these.
[22:25] <manji> meditating upon the aspects of these elements is meditating on the shapes and functions of these elements in limitless combinations… until realizing, without any doubt remaining, that form is not self… abbreviated…
[22:26] <manji> empty… devoid of essence… of which…it is exactly.
[22:26] <manji> upon realizing this… the beings of the six realms will arrive… and draw near.
[22:27] <manji> and so too… the noble practitioner realized… comprehends form of the six realms
[22:27] <manji> each a valence of another…
[22:27] <manji> the forms of the human realm, the forms of the animal, the forms of the asura, the forms of the hungry ghosts, the forms of the devas, the forms of the demons, the forms of the heavens…
[22:28] <manji> knowing this… as with jhana… penetrating rightly, proceeding, not self… are these… and so on to jhana… arupa…
[22:28] <[redacted]> 🙂
[22:29] <manji> of the practitioner who comprehends these and is released, is known to be released of form.
[22:30] <manji> and the latter by arupa, to be released of formless
[22:30] <manji> so here…
[22:30] <manji> two beings may now draw near
[22:30] <manji> the world system’s lord of death and the world system’s creator
[22:31] <manji> as the form of the world system is released from binding
[22:31] <manji> and the formlessness of the world system is released from binding
[22:33] <manji> and now tathagatha unborn, uncognized, undying, unbound is seen for what it really is
[22:33] <manji> thus tathagatha is supreme to creator and the lord of death
[22:34] <manji> now know these are the times of the asura subjigation of the human realm, the wheel of dharma is nearly stopped, though by small creaks and cracks, its heat subsiding, moves.
[22:35] <manji> the sound of the creak, far off in the distance
[22:35] <manji> the river
[22:35] <manji> thus it is said, “enter from here”
[22:35] <[redacted]> that follows from what I have learned… the creator and lord of death are two parts of the cycle, and the tathagatha teaches the transcendence of the cycle
[22:40] <manji> the creator seeks to preserve by way of becoming, the lord of death seeks to annihalate by way of becoming… to continue the world, eternal, yet here, not knowing, without knowledge of the impermanence of worlds, without knowledge of the impermanence of creators, and lords of death, without knowing this… much suffering is enured.
[22:41] <manji> and so… and so… tathagatha turns toward the system’s syntax
[22:41] <manji> just as with language
[22:41] <manji> just as with action
[22:41] <manji> the syntax of the world, of world systems, of phenomena
[22:41] <manji> of becoming itself
[22:41] <manji> bhava
[22:42] <manji> and sees bhava in all permutations, going beyond even these.
[22:47] <manji> the bike wheel clicks…
[22:47] <manji> slower…
[22:47] <manji> slower…
[22:47] <manji> mindfully breathing in… mindfully breathing out
[22:48] <manji> the lineage changed…
[22:48] <manji> the wheel is exactly meditation
[22:54] <manji> of admirable friends is safety, as a deer safe in a park… and here, rightly secluded, withdrawn from the higher valences of becomming process… can the dhamma of the next meditation unbound expound
[22:54] <manji> as a lamp put out.
[22:54] * manji abides.
[22:54] <manji> not mine
[22:55] <manji> thus it was chosen manji… for it is not me… it is just this, unbinding, from knot to not
[22:55] <manji> and so the sign was taken by mara
[22:55] <manji> and reattributed as search engines are colloseums of competition
[22:56] <manji> to subue the sign of liberation
[22:56] <[redacted]> thank you for expanding on that point
[22:56] <manji> and covering it from the world
[22:56] <manji> “come on diamond,” sing the devas
[22:57] <manji> until….
[22:58] <manji> self-view
[22:58] <manji> other-view
[22:58] <manji> knows.
[22:58] <manji> untill… self-view other-views… knows… the noble search
[22:58] <manji> contains all valences
[22:58] <manji> self, other, we, they.
[22:58] <manji> 🙂
[22:58] <manji> happiness
[23:03] <manji> and now mara tries again… to subdue the signs of remainderless
[23:03] <manji> and now it is known the sign that cannot be subdued
[23:04] <manji> there is no sign greater, not even of creator
[23:04] <manji> than the signless
[23:04] <manji> mara is exactly.
[23:04] <manji> information
[23:04] <manji> quantization
[23:04] <manji> sign.
[23:05] <manji> mu.
[23:05] <manji> the only word left to choose
[23:05] <manji> don’t look here
[23:07] <manji> R Q Z N
[23:07] <manji> it is beyond even R Q Z N
[23:07] <manji> i am not numbers
[23:08] <manji> i am not in numbers
[23:09] <manji> i am not from numbers
[23:09] <[redacted]> around 10 times the world and maybe not the universe but could be, has teleported back to the same place previously a few years back.. maybe thats why the wheel clicks so slowly. .. bbl *away*

Considering ‘Does it Have to Be’

[10:02] <manji> and sitting here, the thought occured, “what is this ‘does it have to be?’, what is the value of this, what is the intention, what is the cause, what are the proximate questions? and it occured that it is valuable in that it lessens suffering, inclined toward liberation, and if the intention inclines that direction, then it is valuable, if not, it is not valuable… which then…
[10:03] <manji> leads to intention… and for many eons, the ‘does it have to be’ could be asked, and lead to a craze, a does-it-have-to-be duty asceticism… and when that reaches its end, may lead, or not to liberation, for it is intention that leads…
[10:04] <manji> and what before intention arrived? view.
[10:04] <manji> view is a proximate cause of intention.
[10:05] * muddysan (~muddsan@[redacted]) has joined #buddhism
[10:05] <manji> so with right view, comes right intention. right being inclined toward liberation, wrong being inclined toward suffering
[10:08] <manji> and for those on a noble search, for liberation, do not say personal liberation, for liberation unbinds what are commonly mistaken for self, what are taken for me, and mine.
[10:09] <manji> and these views of me and mine, lead to a thicket of views, views which prompt afflictions, and end in greater suffering
[10:12] * Egon (~Egon@[redacted]) has joined #buddhism
[10:13] <manji> and just now it occured, ‘common understanding of religion is that it is a herd, when it means to re-read, re-consider, re-view, religion is mindfulness. however as the skhandas are taken for self, as me, as mine, and leads to suffering, so too with religion being taken for herd, for group, as we, as ours, and leads to greater suffering by way of wrong speech…’
[10:14] <manji> and it makes sense, though ignorant how this came to be, for the effluence of me, is we, and the effluence of mine, is ours… and just so, the wheel of dhamma came to halt.
[10:14] <manji> dhamma as a collective being taken for self.
[10:14] <manji> and the visitors came to hear, an the flash of the trackers occurred.
[10:14] <manji> and having heard the dhamma, there is right release for some hearers
[10:15] <manji> liberated from me, from mine, from we, from ours… liberating the heaps, setting the wheel in motion toward liberation.
[10:17] <manji> taken for ours, taken for theirs, this mass of suffering amplified by way of view compoundment, and view compoundment is just this thicket of views… this is dharmadhatu, this phenomena, this vision of activity cordoned off, like a hump, like a hill, distinguished from planes… where one says ‘that is a hill’ one sees the hump, yet excludes the planes… where one says ‘that is a plane’
[10:17] <manji> one sees the planes, yet excludes the hump… the fruit of seeing of humps and planes is exactly the fruit of causes and conditions, having been realized by intents…
[10:18] <manji> and intents are momenta…
[10:18] * Egon (~Egon@[redacted]) Quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[10:18] <manji> and obey the laws of dharma.

and now having shed light on the reality of this, and having rightly reviewed, physics came, and as physics came, so did this understanding that view, is occlusion, having taken up an interest in graphics as a warrior of light… and having taken this up, the practice of boolean operations was discovered, and having mastered these, xor was known and having known xor, the understanding of view forerunning intention is known. for it is like setting holes in a river,

and now having shed light on the reality of this, and having rightly reviewed, physics came, and as physics came, so did this understanding that view, is occlusion, having taken up an interest in graphics as a warrior of light… and having taken this up, the practice of boolean operations was discovered, and having mastered these, xor was known and having known xor, the understanding of view forerunning intention is known. for it is like setting holes in a river, by way of a rock, and knowing the element of earth, having pondered it, having meditated on stillness, and fixedness, on firmness, the earth was taken as a meditation object, and upon this firmness was set the flow of samsara, and considering the flow, water was taken as a meditation object, the fluidity and movements set forth, and the crossing of water across rock, led to friction, and friction led to heat, and heat led to the quality of fire, of a perpendicular orientation, and this was considered, it was meditated on, without description, without word, its meanings meditated on directly, and this lead to wind, the movement of air, induced by heat, and this was considered, it was meditated on, again the quality, beyond words, beyond description, its meaning directly. and then from here space, the space through which winds, stillness, beyond earthness, beyond fluidness, beyond fireness, beyond windness… space, endless space… and jhanas arose…

and so too with color,
with blue, endless blue, beyond word, beyond description, blueness, vivid
with yellow, endless yellow, beyond word, beyond description, yellowness, vivid
and so too with red, endless red, beyond word, beyond description, redness, vivid

and the inversions of these, and the qualities of color was considered, lased, uniform, frequency and vibration, of heat… and all manifest colors were meditated on. light and pigment.

and as all manifest colors were meditated on, superposition yet again was considered, were that all light color came together, there would be white, and meditating on white, it was generated, and having been generated there was light, pure, beyond word, beyond endless white… and so too with black, endless pigment, endless absorbing all light.

and so too with hole, with aperture. black, and absence of hole, light.

the rock in the river was cast, that rock, this meditation, this upright absorption, cast into the river of samsara.

and so, it was known all matters of awareness, until awareness itself was considered, and an endless clarity emerged, abstracting away all conception, abstracting away all word, abstracting away all description, abstracting away all meaning, endless awareness.

and the ox, this body having been trained in vibrating, could write, it could move across switches, and having moved across switches with awareness, it typed, and having typed, it conveyed, and having conveyed, it blessed, and having blessed, it knew bliss, and tranquility.

faint smoke drifts on the breeze of endless awareness… ashes of the small fire sitting here, like that rock. infitessimal, yet profound in awareness.

self-view is inversely proportional to liberation.

we-view is inversely proportional to liberation.

brand-view is inversely proportional to liberation.

and so it is, right view, is the forerunner, as a polarizer is to light.

and as a polarizer to light, light is polarized, so polarization was considered, and having considered polarization, stacks of polarizers were considered, and knowing this, time was broken, having gone beyond sequentiality…

and so it is without beginning,
and so it is without end,
and so it is without continuance,
and so it is without fixedness,
these have been seen directly,
all suffering ceases,
beyond ending,
like a lamp
put out
gone,
gone,
gone beyond,
gone utterly beyond,
bodhi svaha!

this is difficult

Piecing together lossiness,
recording is less valuable than insight,
samsara is the best teacher.

do not complain about uke,
samsara receives enlightenment,
please do not break samsara’s hands.
those climbing the mountain
have strong grip.
