On the dual nature of the play of reality, and their role in pointing towards pure awareness/beingness - Dreaming at the Feet of Hades
THE MEANING OF LIFE
To gather experience over countless lifetimes.

We Realize who and what we really are, and come to behave like That.

Ignorance of That and associated bad habits result in mistakes and consequential suffering.

The accumulation of experience eventually brings us to realize that we are not separate from others, which forms habitual devotion to the ultimate welfare of all.

Imeut (pronounced im-oo-et) is the witch name of our son. He’s grown now and writing his own musings about the nature of Mind and the nature of Reality. Here you’ll find a collection of those musings he’s decided to make available to others.

We know all identifiable phenomena are impermanent. And therefore, no identifiable phenomena has a core essence of true beingness and identity. Because of this, anything with a dual nature is inherently always shifting on its own spectrum of dual nature and is therefore empty of true existence. All things are of a dual nature, and […]

Just as all things are held within consciousness, consciousness is held within all things. Form is emptiness, emptiness is form. We are somewhat misled by the ego when attempting to understand what consciousness truly is. Because the ego is always present in our perspective of consciousness, we think that the 5 senses, thoughts, and feelings […]

So, let us begin by recognizing that everything that is experienceable, all phenomena, all “objects of awareness” are of a dual nature. Form and emptiness, awareness and objects of awareness, all that. I will not give extensive examples of these identifiable dualities, and you already have many methods and tools which which to explore and […]

When you recall a memory, you tend to think that that was me then there. But really, that wasn’t you. That person had different understandings and experiences from the ego that you are experiencing here now. So the person in a memory that you perceive as you is actually never you. It’s another ego. The […]

Form and emptiness are two sides of the same coin, of a cycle of empty duality like all things. It is ultimate. All things arise from emptiness, into form, and return from form to emptiness simultaneously. So, by naming and constructing these concepts, form and emptiness, or the goddess and the god, we learn to […]

Conquering ego isn’t about death or getting rid of the ego. It’s about recognizing the emptiness of the ego. Just like recognizing the emptiness of anything else, recognizing something’s emptiness does not make it go away. So recognizing the emptiness of the ego doesn’t make it go away. You’re not killing it, you’re not making […]

Of all the dualities that are empty, the most empty is the duality of the separation of objects of awareness, and awareness of those objects. You are simultaneously experiencing both awareness, and objects of awareness. One doesn’t occur without the other. So even that sense of “otherness” between awareness and objects of awareness is really […]

A conversation between Imeut and Durga Imeut: Yeah so we were discussing the idea that everybody needs to experience different things and know different things in order for reality to “work”. Durga: Right. Imeut: because if everyone knew the same thing, or the experienced the same things, they wouldn’t be individuals. Durga: Yeah they would […]
