Re: No-Thing

Please pardon my jumping in here but this happens to be where a big 
wrestling match is taking place in my mind and this discourse is too 
rich to not participate in.

event with a beginning and and end in spacetime.
> No-thing is not something. "No-event" is not "some-event".

Ok, I will go along with this definition.

A particle is substance by its very appearance as phenomena and would 
therefore have some mass and corresponding gravimetric attraction. 
Might an anti-particle have some negative mass and exhibit some type 
of anti-gravity? There is something pushing the universe apart into 
manvantara. Now consider this.

Lord Maitreya, is attributed with teaching, 
"Nothing exists apart from the mind.
Awareness eventually comes to realize this."

HPB teaches, "Consciousness is the highest form of energy."

Thought is a phenomena, energy, that arises in awareness. Awareness 
has intelligence, and various forms of knowing wisdom. Awareness is 
and is not the thought, but it can not be separated from the form of 
the thought. This awareness has intelligence and is capable of 
choosing to impede a thought or not. When, the thought is impeded, 
wrestled around and molded with desire that thought is imbued with an 
imprint of spiritual substance. Thus the thought form lives, grows, 
blossoms into a new universe and eventually the spirit awakens and 
feels the longing for its home in the same manner that a child longs 
for its mother. What is its point of view? Would you not be its God?

I am not aware that HPB went on to analyze mind much but certainly 
she pointed the way with her rendition of the "Voice of Silence." 

>We are consciousness working on a model of "reality" formed 
>by obedience to the one law, are we not.

This is great. So well put. We are the ripening fruit of our karma, 
individually and collectively.

>What happens when we finally understand everything?
> Perhaps that's while the Chesire cat is smiling.

There is nothing left to be done. We are all going to arrive at the 
same time. The snake is eating its tail, the pelican feeds its young 
from its own breast, the Buddha is smiling, and we will experience 
THAT in all its glorious emptiness. The Chesire cat is still smiling.
