Bodhipower—yours to use or abuse

Left to its own devices mind is constantly on self-destruct alert. It is always living on the periphery of life, neglecting its absolute center which houses the antidote–the only means of avoiding that self-destruct button. The mind needs to re-code its priorities, today there is no other choice, either one reboots the mind-set or else global suicide will be the result. Bodhipower itself is neutral, it is either in the service of Self-awakening and transcendence or, by way of inversion, in the service of self-destruction. It can free mind from its tethers or allow it to go off gallivanting into the sunset of disservice by serving the dark masters of ruin and annihilation. So, this great power at the center of your being is always at your disposal; it will follow your lead or you will allow its improper misuse to lead you downwards into karmic consequences too horrible to even fathom. The choice is always yours. If your answer is in the affirmative of allowing this marvelous deathless source to sustain you in all your ways, know that in so doing you’re tapping into an endless ability to bend and shape the life-force of this translucent dark principle of Unborn Bodhipower in the same fashion that the apparent “you” are empowered to read these lines. You do have the power. Use it well. read more

The Primordials

The Primordials are spiritual benefactors who will never let you down and they will guard you in all your ways. They always have your back and are forever ready to intercede on behalf of the most diligent of adepts. Their source is an inner Yin-Dragon factor, That Primordial Dark Energy that sustains the entire cosmos, which is the very lifeblood of the Primordials themselves. Under their sacred tutelage the Primordials will make you vividly aware that spiritual growth is not the concern of some secluded and thus isolated skandhic persona, but rather the very vivifying interaction with Divine associations that enhance and enlighten the way forward in the perennial Quest of the Unborn. If you maintain this spiritual-symbiosis then the Primordials will shower you with a profound Buddha-gnosis that will reveal the elemental-alchemical key that unlocks the code to the secret treasuries of the Unborn Buddha Mind which forever liberates one from any further samsaric incarceration.  If you can grasp this undivided mystery then the Primordials will point you in the Right Direction of melding with the very Tathatic-Mind Itself. read more

Pleasurable Prajñāpāramitā

Pleasurable Prajñāpāramitā ushers-in a boundless Buddha-realm that is devoid of all contingent sentimentalities such as sentient beings who bake pies infused with discriminatory ingredients that never satisfies the oversaturated diet of superfluous notions like samsara or nirvana. Thus nothing is neither gained nor lost. The herald of such a no-nonsense realm is the Cittadhatu ennobled with the Element of Truth thus ending all habitual vicissitudes of a once diseased consciousness that labored endlessly in rotten fields of no-good merit. This herald’s Queen is the Element of Perfected Transfiguration who gives birth to the Clear-Light Child whose tabernacle is the Supreme Buddhadharma—home of the exalted Prince of the Tathagatas. read more

The Mystic Eye

Do you see the eye directly in the center of your forehead? If not, take note that It sees you and promises you entrance to the gateless gate of the Unborn Mind. As such you will never see it or know it’s there in an ordinary sense because It is the Primordial Eye of Noble Wisdom Itself. It’s the eye of the Deathless Dharmakaya looking back upon Itself. But this watchful Dragon-Eye invites you to enter into the Imageless domain of the Shining Ones. It is only in this fashion that the scales will drop from ordinary vision and instill you with the Maha-vision of knowing the Dharmadhātu. Reality AS IT IS. Seeing with this Mystic Eye the clouds of illusion are forever parted as you learn to trust in what you cannot see more than what your former skandhic-prism did by preventing the real light from shining through. You now KNOW Truth from the UN-reality of your anti-self which has always been the supposed-watcher but in actuality was an imposter all along. Your own Urna or third-eye point has awakened—that supreme spiritual location from which the supernal vision of the Unborn Gnosis flows unhindered. The authentic Biguan-point.  Open-It, Own It, Live WITH It, It will never let you down. read more

The Cosmic Pendulum

Uwe Bremer

Swinging aimlessly in the desert of the mind, the Cosmic Pendulum continues to apparently pin-you down with its awful perpetual momentum–back and forth, back and forth. Such has been your imagined existence throughout the endless kalpas, caught between going back and forth into apparent existences–new faces and thrills but the same ol’ swing mesmerizing you time and time again. Like a little bird with a broken wing there is no possibility of becoming free and taking flight. But unbeknownst to you the birdcage is open, it’s always been open. Suddenly the realization dawns that the self-image you’ve held for so long was falsely an arbitrary one. In point of fact, you are imageless and infinitely free from your former self-imposed cage beneath that awful weight—enough! What is this? Abruptly the cage and pendulum disappear—and so this is your passport for a one-way ticket into the heart of the Unborn. There is no going back, unless you choose to remain spellbound to the ride, that endless to and fro into the darkness of perpetual mediocrity and love of self-bondage. Expergiscere! read more

Birthing the Bodhichild

Within you is the Buddha-seed or gotra, which we refer here to as the Bodhichild. But this child cannot be birthed in a forced or worse yet, in an artificial manner. Its potentiality is already there, it just needs a little coaxing through proper nourishment via the Buddhadharma. It’s there but you have been carrying it for so long that it may result in a still-birth. This is the direct cause of your inner-anguish, you sense something is there inside that wants to come out, that wants to be born, but your resistance is killing it; it’s like a woman carrying a fetus for more than nine-months—it’s not natural and this unnaturalness is malignancy itself.  Only a monstrous tumor is the end result. It seems to be a contradiction, but you first need to be empty before this transcendent birth can occur. Emptied of all that is in opposition to the Unborn. Emptied of emptiness itself. read more

Is the Unborn A Religion?

We would not want one to confuse Unborn Mind Zen with some form of new religion. Religion, at its heart, comes from the Latin, religare–meaning to be bound to. Much of the ongoing chaos in the world is directly tied to religion. Especially when people are indeed so “bound to it” that they lose all sense of responsible reason. Many continue to be slaughtered all in the name of religion, something that has been ongoing since time immemorial. And without realizing it, people are slaughtering themselves in the process. Let us take Christianity as an example. Those bound to that mindset try to avoid suffering in all of its forms but instead, become part of the suffering itself. If you follow a guy with a cross, you can expect having trouble and misery as a constant companion. The outcome can only be what Søren Kierkegaard described as Fear and Trembling. It’s actually creating a roadblock to freedom from such nonsense. I’ve seen the self-destruction firsthand and it’s a terrible recognition. Incessant worrying is the result, and this actually breaks-down the spirit and definitely creates psychophysical illnesses. Your life becomes just one big cross and suffering is there as an unwanted companion through it all. The more one prays, the greater the torment. An endless cycle of a self-fulfilling prophecy which at the end of life says, “Father, why have you abandoned me?” Millions wait for Jesus to come again and in so doing life itself just becomes one agonizing anticipation for something that will never happen. Jesus is long dead, now go on living! The Unborn is That which is Uncomposed, Undying, and Uncreated. It is not any ism, Its Unbounded Liberation Itself. read more

Crowd Control

It’s becoming increasingly evident that the individual is no longer relevant in the eyes of today’s increasingly sick society, rather if one speaks one’s mind then one is ostracized, even worst condemned, and shut-down in the eyes of the politically correct elite. The crowd hates and despises anyone who is not imitating the new status quo, which is a sickening and despicable descent into peer-pressure, second-rate carbon copies of each other, and a real decline of anything once even vaguely recognizable as an authentic character. It’s as if the former mad-houses of the past have opened its doors and the insane let loose to reign havoc while redefining the new-normal—this is the new institution and those calling the shots are the most decadent of all. This is our Brave New World. Suck-up or face the dire consequences. read more

Going inwards you will meet a Zero

The familiar phrase, going-inwards, does not imply that someone will be waiting for you there in the center of your being. In point of fact, continuing to melt into the direct center of your being will usher in a new awareness and un-identity—because there is no longer any facet of “you-ness” that awaits, ding-dong the ego is dead and evaporates away into abject nothingness. This does not mean that you become “nothingness”, only that your former structured format that was comprised of the five-skandhas no longer operates. In Zen this is represented by zero, or the Chinese character “空,” [pronounced Kuu in Japanese], meaning sunya or the great empty sky of voidness. In point of fact, this “ground-zero” is in actuality a point of great abundance, a euphoric spark of engagement with the Unborn Absolute. So, learn to become acquainted with your zero-point, your zero-ness. It is the more “natural-you”—the pure unadulterated essence of your being. read more

He who fights with Monsters

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the often misunderstood and misquoted philosophers of all time, yet his genius shines on in the great abyss of contemporary mediocrity. Towards the end the syphilis kicked in and he was driven to madness but the testament he left behind will continue to be a bright beacon beckoning those few souls who desire to rise above the ignorant wasteland of the human malaise. One particular statement stands most vividly in mind: “He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster”…Yet, the question needs to be asked, just who are the monsters and those who one considers as being friendly? Usually a friend is one who will continue to accept you despite all your foibles no matter what the cost, and an enemy is one who seeks to permanently wreck you into oblivion. And yet the opposite can also be the case. Friendships can be very fragile, especially in this age of the social beast where one phrase can obliterate an otherwise eternal pact of kinship. And a purported enemy can actually “wake-one” up from the present dangerous path one may be embracing, challenging and breaking the façade and in so doing creates a more stronger “you.” So just who is the real monster? read more
