This Yama must surely be Anthony's Ferryman, and leading the involution into the Peakian Daemon, from the Peakian Eidolon. And what else can the secret be, but to master the Bohmian IMAX, so that it no longer oppresses but serves to futher? This is one more confirmation that the Peake dyad invades all the disciplines. And while it invades, it links up all, it is a web which interconnects all and attention must be paid to such a concept. I want to write and write on it. Feverishly and in haste. Thank you for this.

SM,Thank you....yes! the indigenous groups in india slso call yama-the god of death `the ferryman` though he does not come on a boat but on his vehicle the buffalo..( all the gods in indian mythology have a vehicle, which can be an animal or a bird!)

I find this all quite fascinating; of course I presuppose that all is contained within the human pscyhe itself, which makes the CTF/Bohmian IMAX all the more relevant to all. Again, thank you.

ROSHNI: Thank you for posting the link. I found it fascinating.

The first (recent) step in my awakening awareness of all things ITLAD related may be the decision to go to India on holiday in April. I have always been interested in Eastern philosophies and wanted to visit India as long for as I can remember. My visit ignited an awareness of the Hindu ideas of birth and rebirth and it was while I was still full of these thoughts that I came across Tony's talk. So your post resonates with my own thinking.

From what I am picking up from other people on this blog, once that window of initial awareness has been opened, there seems to be more and more evidence in each persons own experience which pushes the learning process.

Have other people also experienced this effect?

i guess the people who tell you not to be silly when you dare to suggest the emperor may have no clothes would also argue (if you refuse to shut up), "What difference does it make anyway? I can't do anything about it, can I?" This is humaton-speak for, "Leave me alone, I'm sleeping."

Actually, they are right: it really is bad manners to try and make people aware of splinters in their own brains that they have worked very hard to ignore.

Plus they may always be on their first time around?!

(More on this later)

Jason/Jake (which is your preference?): That's what is so refreshing about this blog. Your own observations are not dismissed as wacky even when the imagery doesn't fit with other people's. Instead you are encouraged to explore the ideas until the deeper sense becomes apparent to you.

It's not possible to impose awareness on anybody else (even of the splinter in the eye) it has to emerge in it's own time. Then it comes with joy!

woodsprite said...

Roshni: I visited Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Orchha, Khajuraho and Varanasi. It was a well planned route, each place a step further into a spiritual journey. I loved it, especially Varanasi and I will definitely go back to India. Next time I would like to go further South - maybe I will see Mumbai then.
