~ PERFECT HUMAN LIGHT (a mundane oratorio)

~ Here's looking at you, experienced man!


Unfortunately,
humanity has placed before itself
the model of a perfect man.
The idea of the perfect man
is born out of the value system
that we have created.
That value system is born out
of the behaviour patterns
of the great teachers of mankind.

Jesus, Buddha
and all the great teachers.

Every human body,
however, is unique.
Nature is not interested
in creating a perfect being.
Its interest is to create
only a perfect species.

And if every one of us is unique,
that implies that our code of enlightenment,
if there is such a thing,
would also be unique
so that each of us
reaches that state
individually and uniquely.

It is just not possible for us
to produce enlightened people
on an assembly line.

If you look at history,
humanity has produced
only a very few enlightened people.
You can count them on your fingers.
But unfortunately,
in the market place,
we have many claimants
who say they are enlightened,
and they are in turn out
to enlighten everybody.

There is a market for that kind of thing.
The demand and supply principle
is responsible for that.

But actually an enlightened man
or a free man, if there is one,
is not interested in freeing
or enlightening anybody.
This is because
he has no way of knowing
that he is a free man,
that he is an enlightened man.
It is not something that can be shared
with somebody,
because it is not
in the area of experience at all.

There is no such thing as a new experience.

Suppose you go to a new place.
What goes on in your mind
is that you are always trying to fit
whatever you are seeing
into the framework of the past.
The moment you say
that something is new,
it is the old telling you
that it is new.
So, it is very difficult for us
to experience anything new because,
if there is something really new,
it is not in particular frames
that the old is destroyed,
but the totality of the past is destroyed
in one great big blow.

We cannot experience anything new.

There is no such thing as a new experience.
There is nothing new at all.
It is the old that tells us that it is new,
and through this gimmick
thought is making what it calls new
part of the old,
and is thus maintaining its continuity.
So, whatever you cannot experience
does not exist.
Dogmatic assertion?

When you try to experience something
that you have not experienced before,
the whole movement of the experiencing structure
comes to an end.

Thats why my daubir the wanderer had mused earlier...

Kill me
Kill the sense of 'Me'

Behead me
Behead me of my beliefs

Ground me
Ground me to dust, then I fly

Crush me
Crush the ego that rose high

Take me
Take this life without You

AND

I trust you
To kill me
Delete me
Obliterate me
Turn me into
A cadaver
So that
I am
Reborn
With new eyes
