Beyond the Ascent

This blog-series based on previous contemplative formulations here at Unborn Mind Zen is representative of an apophatic climax culminating in a stage termed “Beyond the Ascent“. Previously the Ascent to higher contemplative and unitive frames of mind was of a singular and paramount import. Next must come the breakthrough that after many years of experiencing this unitive state, it is not the Summum Bonum of self-realization in the Unborn. Authentic Union with the Unborn is not complete until there is nothing left to be united. Beyond the Ascent of nirvanic Self-hood, which is not an end in itself, must dawn a higher-estate of Mind. Hence the assumption that the egoless-state is the final goal is a grave error indeed. The skandhic-self still clings tenaciously to the aura of human semblance which is the main hindrance to liberation of mind and spirit. In this context there is no true form of spiritual marriage that initiates this complete loss of the false skhandic-self, but rather years of self-less Bodhisattvic-resolve that is the highest-good for all involved in the Buddhaic enterprise of eradicating dukkha from the terrain of Self-Transcendence. read more
