MEDITATION WITHOUT ‘GOD’.

The mystical experience of Reality (MER) shows us if you take ‘God’ seriously you are failing. 

You have chosen the artificial road most followed by humans. This brings with it the all too evident consequences worldliness inflicts on your life in particular and on humanity generally …

The earth is an uncountable billions of years old and humans have only been here 4,2 billion or so years. Humans are just passing through to greater things than being merely human. The stewardship of creation has not been left in the hands of such an as yet unevolved species.

Reality is the ultimate truth and Reality creates and adjusts as It sees fit without human interference.

Whatever ‘God’s’ effect was meant to be has passed its shelf life. All the concept of a ‘God’ produces now is just human morality and ethics, not the post human existential spirituality that is Reality. 

I came from a God culture and when my multiple annual MERs were inflicted upon me through no fault or qualification of my own I naturally expected and looked for ‘God’ in my experiences. 

To my great discomfort at the time I never found it. Nor did I see any trace of gods, or humans. In fact I remember in one particularly profound experience how bitterly disappointed I was. I was still me. I was definitely not in any ‘heaven’ and definitely not with any biological or humanly mythomanic ‘God’.

I was however awed, humbled, and powerfully reduced to pure spirit with a dissolving, infusing joy. Being returned to ‘my’ human condition was always a lastingly unwelcome, traumatic experience.

‘God’ on the other hand is a human construct. It is not real. It is artificial. Its influence is temporary and needs constant maintenance.

So even if called as a Seeker you take ‘God’ or anything human, even yourself, into your meditations, you are failing.

In my experiences Reality demands that we go into the Silence alone and unnamed, naked from all thought – to submit and finally awaken. 

All Is Well.

RASH WORLD.

‘For know, rash world, that in this star crost world Reality drives us all to find our chiefest good in what we can, and not in what we would.’ *

‘What we would’ is cosmically wrong because it ignores what Reality has in mind for all existence, including us.

Ideologies, religions, fashionable fads and thoughts, human logic and reasoning are ‘What we would’ rather than Reality. They are mental constructs, myths and imagination, not the real thing. They are what produces and maintains human chaos – including the painful warlike kind – as well as anarchy, anger, attachment and ego.

‘What we can’ is, for instance, the secret heart of Zen, ‘going with the flow (of Reality)’.

Mystics will also present you with the possibility of ‘going into the Silence’ for all the answers you’ll ever need.

The idea we can do anything otherwise is a cosmic joke and never very funny throughout human history …

Some identify our wilfulness as an evil that bedevils humans and humanity.

The good news is, Reality is apparently unperturbed by human chaos. It always prevails eventually.

(From when I was assured ‘All Is Well’ in one of my Mystical Experiences of Reality – MERs – I can only pass on that Reality’s time to get things done is not our time, and our time is not Reality’s …).

PROFOUND NOTHINGNESS

After reading his Blog’s “About” section by Old Chinaman*, I wrote him a Comment, as follows:

“One of my last mystic experiences after 15 years of them every year was of observing the human ‘me’s’ back as it stood unperturbed at the edge of a profound nothingness. All was well.

“From the traditions you quote I wonder if this observer was ‘my’ real identity revealed after casting off its human chrysalis? I don’t know if that’s idle conjecture or more enlightenment.”

Old Chinaman replied:

“I’ve been following your blog for a while now and waited for an opportunity to share some notes so to speak.

“The main thing that intrigued me is why did you have to experience your MER so many times, every year from when you were 15 till 35?

“Going through your blog site, I’ve got the impression that you are still facing a similar dilemma as I had many years ago, namely how to reconcile our mystical heart and our critical mind. On your blog home page, you wrote: “This is a BLOG for Seekers and those who have had the mystical experience of Reality (MER) and are humbly, joyfully dedicated to it – bringing their remaining personal humanity to terms with it.”

“… it seems to me that you have reached what Zen Buddhists and non-dualists are trying to achieve with their meditation, the pure awareness of the void/emptiness.

“In The Ultimate Unification Theory, it is symbolized by the second symbol, the Circle with a Centre point – The Source becomes aware of IT-SELF. Yet, you also see your human body, which indicates the question nagging to be answered: “What am I doing here ‘marooned’ in this human body”.

“In the Javanese Mystical Tradition, we believe that we are eternal being inseparable, (be ONE) with The Source/GOD (manunggaling kawula lan gusti) and metaphorically consider our incarnation on this planet as just a short visit for a cup of tea (sangkan paraning dumadi) and we do it many many times through reincarnations.

“When We (Ingsun – the spark of The Source/God) are born, we are dressed with the four elements of this planet. Four represents our physical body (Earth/Solid, Water/Liquids, Air/Gaseous, and Fire/Heat/blood) and three represents our non-physical body (our individual mind, our genetic/ancestral/racial mind and the human/planetary mind or our collective unconsciousness).

“Every time we incarnate, we are wearing those seven elements, and our mission is to refine those elements through our refined thoughts and actions.

“In time, with many incarnations, we are slowly assisting Gaia (planetary consciousness) to evolve. (ngracut busananing manugsa / weaving the human dress/body).

“Best regards,
Bambang / Old China Man”

I replied, (with additional thoughts now added) :

“So far as I know, this is the first analysis of my mystic state. Thank you.

“You seem to have discerned the repetitive theme of my experiences of alienation from the human condition, which I hadn’t paid any attention to..

“I’m now compelled to distinguish this recurring theme as fundamental to those experiences. It seems from what you say that other cultures have already noted this condition as part of the mystic way. This is a welcome serendipity I shall address with interest.

“You also reported the question, “how to reconcile our mystical heart and our critical mind.”

“To me, mind is at the heart of humanity’s problems. It is an impenetrable impediment to reconciliation with Reality. In some traditions it is considered as the heart of all evil. In my experiences however the experience of Reality limits the negative effects of mind,

“You also suggest our mission is to refine elements of being human through our thoughts and actions.

“That is not my experience! Human thoughts and actions are of no consequence to Reality in Its vastly infinite scheme of things. Any ‘progress’ towards human destiny is in being successfully rid of all humaness to merge more fully into spiritual Reality, in my spiritual understanding.

“You particularly asked ‘why did you have to experience your MER so many times, every year from when you were 15 till 35?’

“I have no idea. Perhaps I needed the repetition? The experiences became much more profound, focused, with time …

“I’ve also come to realise the acquisition of infinite awareness and knowledge that Reality brings into creating mystics is continuously at work in mystics’ lives after their awakening. I have experienced much greater understanding and knowledge.

“I also realise now while the actual fundamentals of the experience of Reality are the same in all true mystics the individual lifelong outcomes are not.

“As a result, I have had the thought/intuition that the simple existence of mystics is to influence humans throughout their evolutionary destiny into spirit, not to meddle in the changing world of human affairs, none of which are permanent and will disappear eventually anyway.”

*After High School Old Chinaman attended university in Germany where he attained a degree in electrical engineering. He reports personal mystical experiences. Later, he presented his paper, “The Ultimate Unification Theory” (The unification of Science and Mysticism) at The Fifth International Conference on THINKING at James Cook University, Townsville, Australia.

IS THIS WHAT HUMANITY IS ALL ABOUT?

This blog is a first hand account of a modern mystic’s personal lifetime development that resulted from multiple, spontaneous, yearly experiences of Ultimate Reality.

After four years of writing the blog, my conclusions about this phenomena were summarised in the blog and on the back cover and page 402 of the Amazon five star book, Mystical Experiences Of Reality that I wrote.

Now I think that summary might be usefully repeated here for new readers. However, before that I would like to give my answer to the question, ‘Were my mystical experiences of Reality real or merely a product of my mind or brain?’

The experiences were more emphatically real than anything I have ever experienced before and after they started and continued every year from the age of about 15 until my late thirties.

My intuition is that my brain was not the creator but the conduit for these experiences and the lifetime development they brought.

As for my mind, it never played a part. It wasn’t and still isn’t in the same league as the Reality I experienced, all of which was completely outside anything I have experienced since. This mystical experience of Reality is a phenomena traceable back 12,000 years.

Here are my conclusions again:

There is an Ultimate Reality over all existence, over everything known and unknown.

Humans exist as part of it.

Nothing exists outside it, including humans.

It is not biological.

It is outside general current human experience.

It only manifests to individuals, for reasons yet unknown.

It is not created or influenced by humans.

Humans have no control of it whatsoever.

Nothing human affects that Ultimate Reality.

With human individuals it is benign, accepting, nurturing, giving an ineffable joy.

It is indifferent to human constructs such as family, culture, country or creed, or any social organisation.

Humans could be absorbing into this Ultimate Reality, eventually making these temporary human bodies and minds extinct for something ethereal.

Is this what human beings are all about?

WHY MYSTICS ‘FAIL’?

A correspondent reacted to me sending him a copy of an excellent video by a well known ‘guru’ on the necessity for Solitude and going into the Silence, by saying:

“Gotcha … Quite the celeb. And a character.”

I replied:

“Yes, he is. But he scatters his spiritual seed in the hope there is some significant harvest despite the known 80% wastage.

“My approach is only to address those who have been invited into Reality and understand what I’m saying, like Seekers, who are compelled by their undeniable Calling, and Mystics who are already enlightened even if only somewhat.

“********’s, approach is traditional, like the mission of Jesus of the Christian bible, which failed.

Human spiritual history is scattered with mystics’ failed missions to the world, mystic sharers who the world forgot or ignored. Who’s ever heard of Molinos, Guyon, or Vasishta?

It seems from the human point of view that Reality never gives up. But how can it? We are Reality too. Reality will always out.

Mystics might fail but Reality doesn’t. Reality is, and we are that forever.

All Is Well.

REALITY’S TEACHING – Part 2.

NO TEACHINGS, NO RECOMMENDATIONS?

Question: This blog is unique in many ways but one thing which stands out is its lack of your teaching on how to reach spiritual goals.

Everyone else teaches and recommends courses and so on, as you’ve touched on adversely in a previous blog. So is the absence of a teaching from you on purpose or accident?

Answer: On purpose. My experiences of Reality did not call for me to teach. My experiences did not come from teachings. They were unexpected, unsought, unprepared for, spontaneous.

In fact, mentally I didn’t feel qualified to have them. Once, I thought the particular experience I was having must have been meant for someone else.

I didn’t even tell anyone about them. I would have resisted any suggestion of sharing or teaching them.

I didn’t practice spiritual exercises before my experiences, nor was I called upon to any spiritual exercises afterwards.

So there are no practices I can recommend from first hand experience. So far as I’m concerned mystical experiences of Reality (MER) are caught not taught.

For these reasons I won’t recommend teachers, or courses that offer enlightenment.

However, I did eventually experiment with various meditational techniques from books and different ‘gurus’.

They helped mentally and perhaps physically. I got some helpful directions to consider.

But none of them added to my mystical experiences of Realty, (MER). Their main value was to recognise my experiences and show me I am a mystic.

Q: But you were initiated into what you’ve called, ‘a spiritual wisdom’ school.

A:  Yes, but by then my annual revelations had already happened to me.

Q:  So what did that particular school teach you?

A: It showed me I was not alone in my experiences. I was astonished to find my experiences have been known to mankind far longer into antiquity than any religions, God or gods or political constructs and philosophies of existence.

That school helped me to my spiritual feet, so to speak. identified my spiritual identity. They knew about my spontaneity but also had tradional secrets, techniques, including in meditation, on how to avoid the effects of the mind and how to deal with mischievous meditational phenomena for instance. The school tried to help initiates achieve spiritual revelation, none of which affected my experiences.

The other reason I don’t share or teach is I know from my mystical experiences that Reality is only relevant to individuals, those who are genuinely called, Seekers.

Those who are merely curious or persist in wanting to be better humans will find no solace here, as I warn in the opening pages of the Blog.

As each human individual is different, so even genuinely driven Seekers need different answers, different methods of communicating at different times to meet their unique, shifting, maturing spiritual condition.

There have been and still are traditional gurus you’ve never heard of who were or are skilled in using this person-to-person technique in bringing their qualified pupils into greater spiritual understanding.

“Even so”, Aloysius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, said in effect, “the mystical experience is the better way.”

Even this “hunger and thirst” of the Seeker, as the Christian bible calls it, will never fully achieve revelation unless Reality bestows it. You can’t earn the experience, so far as my experiences are concerned by books or teachers before your enlightenment. Afterwards there’s not much need anyway. And Reality might block you then anyway.

All Is Well.

REALITY’S TEACHING – Part 1.

Question: You seem reluctant to recommend books or courses on mysticism.

But each personal experience is different. it is tailor made for each individual’s stage of development.

Answer: Yes. In my own experience, each human experience of anything is the only beginning of all knowledge.

Consequently, as a mystic, my reading and listening, my learning style, delivers my needs at the time, when I’m ready. My way and my time are never going to be your way or time.

No one else’s way and time are ever going to be exactly appropriate to you or other people all the time, either.

A spiritual teacher was asked why he sometimes gave different answers to different pupils.

The teacher explained what all mystics have experienced: “Each individual’s ability to fully apprehend Reality is unique, and different to different personal circumstances and attributes.”

So my ways are not your ways, and yours are not mine. Similarly, Reality’s ways are not our ways and our ways are not Reality’s …

If your calling to Reality is true you’ll always find what your real present needs are. Clue 1: they’re not worldy!. Clue 2: they don’t always give the answers you’d expect. Clue 3: they definitely change as you change. Clue 4: they’re fundamental, simple. Clue 5: they free you to be the real you, without baggage!

In my experience, if you are really called, not caught in books, courses or ideologies, you will be gifted with two more abilities to help you on your Way: the ability to listen to the exclusion of everything else, and discernment.

(Beware – Reality can also be insistent to ward you off what you don’t need! Ignore such warnings at your peril. Wanting is no part of spiritual development).

MYSTICISM LEADS TO APATHY?

QUESTION:  If, as you infer throughout your blog and book, Reality rules, do you mean to say we’re puppets without free will?

ANSWER: We only have free will within the limits of our present humaness, just as beetles, for instance, have all the freewill they can handle within their beetleness. It’s the same in all existence – in matter, spirit, nature – throughout creation. That’s my understanding. (‘A place for everything and everything in its place’?).

According to mystic experience, the above describes the human state in its evolutionary development into Ultimate Reality, whether we know it or not, like it or not. 

Q:  So you mystics, are not concerned with freewill, then; self improvement? 

A:   What could be described as Reality’s definition of ‘self improvement’ is very different to any merely human version.

As has been said, Reality’s ways are not our ways and our ways are not Reality’s.

Q:   So human effort is useless? If that’s the case why don’t we slip into apathy, leave it to Reality, not care about anything?

A:   Because Reality rules otherwise.

Q:   Oh yes?!  So what is this so called ‘otherwise’ your Reality ‘rules’?

A:  It’s the simple realisation persisting throughout mystic experience that our ultimate existence serves some unknown purpose, as illustrated by mystic realisation that we are given all we need to exist. So what else should we want? Why would we interfere and interrupt our progress in Reality?

However indiscernible to some, progress in Reality is ineradicable and in Reality’s time, not our time. Our being true to our real selves fills this purpose.

This profoundly fundamental existential lesson teaches that apathy is yet another word for a merely human experience that has no meaning in Reality. Accordingly, apathy has no relevance to mystics, who have experienced Reality.

Consequently, Mystics, Seekers, the wise and the thoughtful, find themselves recognising their full potential and destiny in living with a core of simple contentment; (as much as their efforts allow them in their times).

Mystics become uncluttered by the ultimately extinct ever-changing mentality, ideas and distractions of the short lived human condition of their times.

Q:  What do you mean, ‘short lived human condition’?

A:   If my mystical experiences of Reality are anything to go by, humans are at a very primitive, early stage of evolution.

Humans are on their way to extinction into their full meaning in Reality. According to scientists we only have a shelf life of 120 years in a cosmos billions of years old.

(Are mystics, seekers, the wise and the thoughtful, survivors of the human race’s final evolution? Burke and Sinetar suggested this in their books when they wondered if mystics, for instance, might be a different species).

Q: So mysticism leads to what psychiatry calls alienation?

A: What is psychiatry’s definition?

Q: According to Google, it is:

“… a state of depersonalization or loss of identity in which the self seems unreal, thought to be caused by difficulties in relating to society and the resulting prolonged inhibition of emotion.”

A: Absolutely right about ‘difficulties in relating to society’! Tell me about it! But the psychiatrists are wrong. It’s society that causes apathy. Apathy is a product of spiritual ignorance. Eighty percent of the population is prone to it, among other human weaknesses.

Narcissistic, hubristic human emotion such as ‘apathy’ are irrelevant in Reality where all humanity is finally extinguished in the knowing, infinite belonging and joy of Reality in which we live, breath and have our temporary human existence.

Personally, I would describe my own “difficulties in relating to society” not as apathy but as a feeling of being marooned here, as expressed in my poem, MAROONED* (below) that I posted in the blog some time ago.

I don’t know what I did to deserve my maroonment but I’m coping. Solitude helps … (Laughs loudly).

(Shakes his head). I sometimes wonder if earth is a cosmic penitentiary we inmates have to endure until we get it right … (Laughs longer).

All Is Well. Reality rules.

Here’s the poem:

*MAROONED

Divinity’s insouciant servants of the Light

Fly beneath my fears, over my plight,

Indifferent to my day as to my night.

Marooned in the humanity of my time,

Tired by glimpses of the divine,

Save me soon, make me thine.

IS REALITY GOD?

QUESTION: Is Reality God?

ANSWER: A definite NO! ‘God’ is largely man made in man’s image. Reality isn’t.

But, yes, in human terms bits of Reality have been called all kinds of ‘God’ or ‘gods’, and other names and attributes by humans for billions of years in every culture. The name has been abused and used, to kill and ill-treat millions.

But those humans of all times and cultures who were given as much of the experience of Reality as they could bear at the time – the mystics – were for some reason yet unknown shown more of the nature of Reality’s existence than eighty percent of their population at the time, (assuming the Pareto* principle applies here).

Unfortunately many of those mystics translated the revelation into spiritually shallow, human terms. This lead to emotional, spirituallly empty, merely morally and ethically driven religions that have little immediately evident divine content whatsoever.

But my understanding is that despite these human distortions Reality is the same but ever changing and unchanging.

Reality remains the beginning and end of all things. The Jesus of the Christian bible seems to suggest as much when he talks of being part of the alpha and omega of ‘God’.

All that has changed in human understanding historically is the extra extent Reality has revealed Itself from time to time to individuals, (note: not to religions or ideologies!).

For instance, one of the aspects of the ‘God’ of the Christian bible is what a vicious, warlike, tribal, revenge-seeking, manipulative, political, all mighty earthly power ‘God’ is. I can testify otherwise from personal experience.

The negative qualities described above were obviously human. Like all such human straying from Reality such delusions have been falling under the weight of their own irrelevance ever since.

But I, and presumably all mystics from my reading of latest human history, know Reality is us, and we are Reality. Perhaps this is why the ancients mistakenly described what they knew of Reality as having human form.

In fact, Reality isn’t even biological, if my experiences are anything to go by. (Neither are we biological eventually).

Therefore while Reality is certainly all powerful, It is also fundamentally caring, benign, guarding, guiding, advising, rescuing, forgiving, profoundly joyful, powered by acceptance of all things everywhere at all times – what humans who have experienced Reality partially call, inadequately, love. Reality’s love is ineffable, indescribable, reducing all who experience it into Itself, in utterly humble gratitude and submission. No one who has had any experience of Reality is ever the same again.

And by some way strange to human ways, Reality is only interested in individual growth, ie: you. Reality has named you, Reality claims you as Itself … Spiritual gregariousness, (one size fits all), is an oxymoron, nothing to do with Reality, and always fails.

We know now, if the ongoing mystic experience is to be believed, that Reality’s love is acceptance, not like human love which is emotional, lustful, angry, greedy, attached to the exclusion of one thing or the other, and ego driven. None of these merely human ‘attributes’ exist in Reality.

So to answer the question, is Reality God? I’ll repeat my first answer with another definite NO! ‘God’ is largely man made in man’s image. Reality isn’t.

All Is Well.

DEAD END SCIENCE?

So far as David Deutsche’s book The Fabric of Reality is concerned, it adds to my conviction scientists are inexplicably addicted to the spiritually irrelevant human attachment of curiosity – intellectual tourism – the human spirit rather than spirituality.

Deutsche seems to confirm this when he says right at the end of this book that all scientists are doing is looking for explanations about the world.

Are scientists blindly addicted to worldliness? If so, science is a dead end so fas as the mystic experience of Reality is concerned. Mystics don’t know the how of Reality either, but they have experienced It and do understand the evolutionary spiritual content in which this world and its humans temporarily exist.

Scientists have knowledge whereas mystics have understanding. This is another difference between the human spirit and Real spirituality – quite an abyss.

ARTIFICAL MERs v. REAL MERs!

I think the differences between the genuine mystical experience of Reality, (MER), and other induced or merely posited experiences claiming to be the real thing are twofold.

First, in my experience, you can’t induce the genuine mystical experience, (MER) by any means known to mankind. Such human experiences are the mere product of artificial interference with the brain’s real, created functions. These results are limited by the human condition to the human condition.

Secondly, genuine mystical experiences are not concerned with the human condition. For some unfathomable reason they prepare some human recipients for something else, something unknown, something ineffable and humanly indescribable, something the human brain simply isn’t ‘wired’ to know, create or communicate on it’s own.

(I’ve often speculated the brain is only spiritually engaged by MER as an inert conduit at best).

All Is Well. Reality Rules.

REALITY MANIPULATIBLE?

“The subconscious mind motivates almost all actions, behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and the choices that you think you are making in your lives — it is the key to transformation.” Richard Haight, richardhaight.net

Is Richard suggesting it’s the subconscious mind that produces what I call the mystical experience of Reality (MER), that people can transform themselves into being better human beings?

The existence of an independent ‘sub conscious’ mind is an unproven human suggestion.

All we can be sure of is that the brain works on an as yet not fully understood practical complex of hydraulic, hydrodynamic, electric, synaptic and chemical levels. But little else can be assumed with any certainty. All we understand about the brain is that it services and maintains the body’s functions. So far as we know, that’s it; nothing spiritual available for human manipulation that has yet been discerned about the brain.

I certainly never got the impression I had anything I could do about my MERs. I was helpless and incredibly joyous about them; humbly so. They were completely spontanious and inexplicable. So much so I have a strong instinct the stewardship of existence has deliberately excluded any interference by our comparatively new human race. MER is caught, not taught. Reality Rules.

As my multiple experiences of MER attested, these experiences are not meant to ‘improve’ humans but to aid the process of advancing us beyond mere human existence.

All Is Well.

INTUITION THE INNATE COMMON “LANGUAGE” OF REALITY?

I’m told mystics are intuitive. As a mystic, I haven’t noticed. But maybe I’m not identifying the experiences I have as being ‘intuitive’. My mystical experiences have lead me to understanding some things effortlessly, easily, naturally, accurately and truly. Is that intuition? It never occurred to me everyone doesn’t have it.

But sometimes when I read my posts, although I can be most impressed even though I almost can’t believe I wrote them, I am profoundly humbled, uncontrollably, beyond my humanity.

My posts are received from these direct experiences of Reality. They are conveyed to me innately, not by any human language except in one instance when it was revealed “All Is Well”; as I have described elsewhere in this Blog.

Perhaps others do have this intuition but don’t pay attention or don’t trust it or themselves?

Even cursory research shows there is widespread, modern and historical acceptance of the MER experience. It’s real.

There are lots of words/phrases for it: hunches, inference, instinct, cognition, gnosis, apprehension, insight, inspiration, sixth sense, impression, suspicion, direct knowledge, common sense, insights, opinions, enlightenment, transcendence, altered state …

(Gnosis springs out to me from that tentative list. In its pure, historical meaning it stands for the experience of the union/knot with ultimate existence. It implies intuitive knowledge of spiritual truths. According to Wikipedia “it signifies a knowledge or insight into humanity’s real nature as divine, leading to the deliverance of the divine spark within humanity from the constraints of earthly existence.”(The word gnostic exists in the Christian bible. It is also self used by a modern cult ‘religion’ purportedly made up of gnostic humans. I avoided such ‘gnostics’ after they insisted there are different forms of the experience such as Jewish gnosticism, Catholic, Anglican gnosticism, etc. Such distintions don’t exist in Reality. Their leader wanted to make a worshipping religion of gnosticism with ceremonies, prayers, priests and robes – Reality reduced to human mythomania).

More seriously, some psychologists say intuition is the brain rapidly sorting out hunches generated by the unconscious mind …

My intuition is they are wrong if they assume the brain creates intuition. I intuit it doesn’t!

I think intuition could be the way Reality communicates throughout all existence. As mystics know, in Reality, in which all things are perfect and everything is at peace wih itself, there are no names or languages. Is this another indication intuition is in fact the transmitting language of Reality?

Is this why the historical admonition to “Know Thyself”, or the urgings of the wise to listen to our “still, small inner voice”, to recognise our ‘intuition’, (that we see in dogs, horses, cows, etc.), why monasteries insist on evidence of your ‘vocation’, ie: ‘voice’, before becoming a monk, why gurus tell us to meditate?

Are mystics the only ones currently developed enough to use intuition as part of their daily lives?

As I have written here before, I think intuition is a human word describing how mystics are conscious of widely experienced things humans also see but don’t notice, that intuition is “an ineffable conscious experience, as distinct from any physical or computational process*”. Intuition seems as common to humans as their blindness to it.

Nevertheless, is intuition the human ‘eureka’ principle, those sudden, logically and intellectually unsupported sudden scientific discoveries we hear so much about?

Is intuition just Reality at work, despite most humans being biased against anything that is not widely experienced or accepted by their human cultures – ie: collective cultural blindness?

Will intuition generally develop eventually through basic human intelligence to full blown attributes of intuitive observation, conclusion, action and communication? Will human languages die? Is this intuitive process part of the evolutionary process?

I intuit the brain is just a receiver when it comes to intuiting knowledge. Reality uses the brain to receive and transmit ‘intuitions’, to guard, guide and direct us personally, directly.

Why do some use this intuition and others don’t? Perhaps some aren’t ‘wired’ enough for it yet, or just not aware of its existence, or of their personal ability to try listening to it? The human race is still in evolutionary development so maybe the answers to who has what, and who still doesn’t, lies in the future somewhere?

Is intuition the human word to describe the ineffable experience of MER? Mystics would say partly, yes, because any experience, any consciousness, particularly the experience of the Mystic Experience of Reality, is the beginning of all wisdom.

For me, my experiences of Reality are far more believable, profoundly impelling beyond question, than anything merely human.

Therefore, so far as my experiences are concerned the answer to the question, Is intuition the innate, common “language” of communication in Ultimate Reality? is, most likely, YES!
