If we give up desire we experience God

Written by 

Ozodi Osuji Thinking out Loud

No Desire Means Return To Formless Unified State

Buddha correctly asserted that to live as a human being one must desire to survive as a separated self-housed in body.

In his four noble truths, Buddha posited that human life is characterized by desire, that desire causes suffering, and that to avoid suffering one must give up desire (including the desire to live as a separated ego self in body).

In meditation, Buddha asked his followers to give up their egos desire to live as separated selves, die to the ego self and in so doing experience a different self in Nirvana, the unified peaceful and eternal self.

Those who have had this experience are said to have experienced their Buddha self (Christ self); they are now enlightened to their light self; they are illuminated to the truth of our eternal unified self.

In our temporal universe, if one lets go of ones desire to live as a separated self-one would not take care of ones ego and body and one would die, so letting go of the separated self is only possible in meditation.

In meditation one voluntarily lets go of the desire to live as a separated ego self in body and dies. In that death one experiences a different self, the unified self, the oneself that is simultaneously infinite selves.

Outside meditation one returns to the desire for separated self and takes care of one's body and ego (via food, medications, clothes and shelter) to live in it.

THE LIGHT WORLD

If one reduces ones level of egotism and overlooks the world one may occasionally experience ones purified self in light form, and the world of light forms.  In that world people are in light forms, do not eat food and do not kill animals to eat hence it is not a brutal and uncaring world as is our body based world.

OUR WORLD OF DENSE FORMS

Our world cannot have peace for in it people have desire to live as separated selves in bodies and that desire leads to struggle and conflict; the desire to survive as separated selves in bodies means that one must be callous and brutal and kill animals and trees to eat them to survive. Our world must have killing in it hence cannot be a peaceful world.

PERFECT PEACE, IMPERFECT PEACE AND NO PEACE

There can be no lasting peace in our world. The world of light forms has some peace, imperfect peace; people in it still wish for separation there must be space and time and there can be no peace; perfect peace can only obtain in a formless unified place, heaven; in heaven we are ideas of parts in the idea of whole called God.

God is a wave of spiritual light and each of us is a particle of light in that spiritual light; wave and particle are one.

Spiritual light is different from physical light; physical light came from the transformation of spiritual light; this occurred during the Big Bang when the sons of God went insane from wanting to separate from their father and from each other; they made themselves hot and exploded and generated physical light; they used that light to construct our physical universe; in our universe everything is made of light, and that includes stars, galaxies, planets, plants and animals, our bodies.

Spiritual light is transformed to physical light and physical light is transformed to electrons, quarks and quarks are transformed to neutrons and protons and those are combined to atoms and elements and elements are used to construct everything in the universe; you can reduce everything in the universe back to light (from which it came).

IF SPACE IS COLD WHERE DID HEAT AND LIGHT COME FROM?

Space is very cold (the temperature in space is about -273 degrees Fahrenheit).

If the entire universe is one endless vacuum with nothing in it hence cold where did objects, heat and light come from?

Clearly, cold cannot generate heat and light; heat can exist and lose temperature and become cold (entropy). So, where did heat and light come from in a cold universe?

Since it is impossible for cold to generate heat and there is heat and light in the universe we must conclude that somehow heat and light existed in the primordial universe, and are always part of the universe.

Heat and light could not have come out accidentally as Stephen Hawkins said in trying to explain the Big Bang. He said that out of nowhere and nothing heat emerged and exploded into light to give rise to our heat and light based universe.  In the future that heat and light would exhaust themselves and return the universe to cold state (Big Child end of the universe).

Pure logic disposes me to say that light and heat must always be part of the universe. We may say that they are part of God's light that the sons of God made hot and exploded to invent the physical universe (see above).
