Subjective & Objective Enlightenment

“enlightenment” or what would be described as non-dual realization is the assimilation &/or reconciliation of all opposites into a end all be all truth…
this truth is trully indescribable because language itself is dualistic…

As Long as the brain fuctions it will generate opinions, ideas, and thoughts… so there is no point tring to subdue them, it is like binding an elephant with a single thread, it will always break loose!
The goal of liberation teachings is to extricate your self from your minds turnings & bodys sensations…so they pass like clouds, you just watching them go by.
So in order to realize truth beyond an intellectual level, we must generate what is called Bodhichitta(mind of awakening), by generateing a mind of awakening, the mind when shaken will always find its way back to bliss, & at advanced levels any sort of depression becomes non-existent…the mind is bent on always leading the focus onto the eternal in things… we do this through study, chanting(reading scriptures & good books outloud), constant spiritual practice, meditation, & selfless service…

enlightenment itself is a fiction created by unenlightened people to describe how differant people who know all differance to be false, are & act.
It could be said that “enlightenment” is a never ending path, there is no end to the realizations of the self~

To develope bodhichitta, the mind of awakening; one must intelligently merge both the subjective & objective realities into a unified whole…

Brahman is the word used to describe the unified whole, Brahman is Sat(truth) Chit(energy) ananda(bliss)…
the Non-dual brahman is decribed through duality… they appear different but are one as ;Form is Formlessness given Form.
Naguna(without quality)- consciousness, formlessness, infinit ,invisible, real, eternal, the original Brahman, & the original primordial substance of all things.
Saguna(with qualities)-carbon based matter, all form, finite, visible to the senses, the ever changing illusion. all “things” are made out of Naguna Brahman, when Naguna Brahman is given form it is called Saguna Brahman… but just as pot cant be anything other than clay; saguna/form cannot be anything other than the formlessness it is made out of…
well form is Matter & formlessness is consciousness, ergo all is consciousness…
Buddha described it as Samsara(things in TIME) & Nirvana(ETERNITY)
“nirvana is samsara
samsara is nirvana…”
– The Buddha

After learning all this, a being will decide
“It is time to take the plunge into the abyss!” & will need a Gurupeetha(seat of the Guru) or system for developing & keeping Bodhichitta(a mind of a saint)…

the one truth is simple yet infinitly complex… the manifest arises from the unmanifest and back again, consciousness is the unmanifets…
most of all… All is one, & of the nature of infinity…

the Objective route is meant to merge your self(your small/false self, the EGO) into the whole…
one in a state of oblective realization will say;
“I dont exist, none of us exist, only God exists, all is God, all is God’s grace,all is God’s will…. I have no will, there is only the will of God…”
seeing the whole, the awakened mind will understand his being as a particle or cell of God… or a single in an ocean in infinity…
your self shrinks until it ceases to exist empirically… then when there is no “you” there is only God…. thus one “acheives” yoga(union with God) “you are eaten by God,& verilly become God…

the subjective route is meant to realize the true nature of your being, WHO are YOU? realizeing the true nature of reality as consciousness, and realizeing your spirit/true self as consciousness, you realize your own self as the whole… a person in subjective realization says; “I am other than my body, mind, senses, or memory… i am neti neti(neither this nor this alone), i am conscioussness; unmoving & unshaken, i am immortal & eternal… I am God.”
Seeing the whole the awakened mind sees all as the self and nothing else… He has lost all fear as he sees all beings in his own self, & his own self within all beings…
seeing the whole as conscioussness, the objective world becomes engulfed swallowed byyour presense, an overwhelming sense of invinsibility comes into the mind, although without being ignorant of the dangers a body can not endure without breaking down…

this would be relative to both hindus & buddhist thought, i hope you have enjoyed learning about liberation…Nameste
