MEETING THE MAN IN THE MIRROR, 2
MEETING THE MAN IN THE MIRROR
It is a fact that Mind affects reality,
through neurons and sub-atomic particles
mind affects other minds...
You know how a herd of wild gazelles
make rapid turns avoid the lion, and they
all turn together. They have some hidden
instinct or sense or ability.
Same thing with a flock of birds.
You've seen them flying west, say, and all
of a sudden the lot of them are
It's the same with a school of fish;
they all swerve at the same time.
We have that same ability,we just
don't use it these days...Or is that true?
Maybe we do use it without admitting it
Maybe its part of what we call
intuition. Then we write it off
and don't think about it.
But this is an important ability.
We can use it to affect the world around us,
and other people, too.
Put two people in the same dark room.
Leave them there for a week. But every
few hours a light is flashed on just one
of the men.
Let them sit in the dark together
for quite some time...until they're
used to each other.
Move one of the men to a distant location.
Let him sit in the dark some more. No lights
just as before. Only he is farther away.
If you shine a light on one guy, the other
guy has the experience of a light going on.
Scientists have done this experiment thousands of
times. They find it's almost always true; the man
across the country sitting in the dark,
he senses the light going on. **
Mind affects mind, among people,
even at a distance.
If person A sees a certain
reality,and person B has similar experiences
and they get together and share their experiences...
A comes to have the same vision as B.
B agrees with A.
Their minds will start to work together.
Their minds start to complexify in the same
way of thinking, focus.
And person B
shares his insight with person C... and C
comes to see things the same way...
Well, these minds that think alike
with shared experiences, they are roughly
like the two men in the dark room.
We have this telepathic hidden feature in the
back of our brains, our brains have billions
of processes going on all the time, and we are
aware of something like 3% of the processes of our brain...
A woman wakes up at 4:00A.M. and starts
to scream. She has a vision of a huge fire in the
mouth of a large hole in the ground. She calls up
north. Sure enough, the mine where her son
works has had a fire that started between 3 and 4 A.M...
and her son is trapped below in a cave-in caused by the
She knew it! And nobody is surprised by this fact,
when this happens and she tells people about it.
Whether we're aware of it or not, our society
more or less assumes that E.S.P. exists
in our minds during times of heavy stress
involving a loved one.
A friend of mine died in the middle of the night.
I had a dream that he and I were in a limo, travelling
through an expensive neighbour hood where we both
used to live. The man was very happy in my dream.
It felt like we were having a party together. He was
happy to be driving with me and talking.
I woke up. Immediately I phoned his daughter,
and registered the time of my dream on her answering
machine. I checked and, sure enough, he died just a
short time before I had the dream.
We know telepathy is a fact, especially in times
of stress E.S.P. enters our lives. We're all aware
that things like these happen. We're not very
surprised when we hear about such things....
Why then would we doubt that we have the
ability to instantaneously turn with the herd,
or like the school of fish? And if we can do that,
all of a sudden we must see that mental processes
are some kind of energy, an energy that is a physical force
in the "real world". the world that is external to us.
If you are studying sub-atomic
particles, you know that consciousness is not merely
some insubstantial wisp of nothing.
No. Mind affects the physical world.
Mind affects the behaviour of particles
invisible to the human eye,
so much so that a conscious observer
must be figured into any equation describing
The particles behave differently when
someone is observing them.
What do you think that means?
I had another 2/3rds of this article. I
just lost it transferring it from one site
to this one!
Perhaps it was hubris my talking
about showing how science and religion
do not contradict one another, how they
hold hands, and go to the same dance
together, and dance to reggae music.
Please excuse this half-finished article...
but if I don't post it, lose it, too.
Something's wrong either with my computer,
or the person who's operating it.
There's a whole bunch more data
that applies to this discussion of the
mind as a physical force in the world.
I forgotten much of it, temporarily. But
you know I'll the story back to you.
I was going to bring Teilhard de Chardin's
no-osphere into this story. What Teilhard says
is: "Matter inevitably complexifies into life.
Life inevitably complexifies into consciousness.
Small "c" consciousness inevitably blossoms
into large "C" consciousness.
Through this process - The earth comes to know itself.
As minds grow to full consciousness around
this planet, as people come to know that
Mind is the God they've always sought,
many people will realize Mind together.
Mind is Buddha,Mind is Christ.
Knowing the Mind of the True One is
to reach the eternal.
There is only one ultimate Mind,
though there are many paths.
It doesn't really matter what name
you give to Mind.
In my realization, I was thinking
in Christian terms. So I came to know
the Mind of Christ within me. And as I was
partaking of this Mind, I knew that this
is the Mind that never dies.
Whatever you call it, this is
the Mind that lives in the eternal,
is the eternal, the Mind that lives in
everlasting life. The Mind that sees
through death. Mind without beginning
"Death, where is thy sting?"
This Biblical quotation applies to one who partakes
of Mind, of "Christ Consciousness".
I would never die either, so long as
I continued to see through the vision of this Mind.
In one moment I knew this. It was like
a great implosion had occurred, with
a sound so loud I thought it could be
heard all over the city.
No one heard a thing.
In so far as my ego had died,
that's how far I would be able to
partake in the Mind of God.
God is Christ and
Buddha is God, though the Buddhists
do not speak in these terms. They speak
of "one suchness", or a Mind that is
I imagine Krishna is God, too,
though I am not so familiar with
the Hindu forms of expression.
"I am he who is of the Same."
The Same and the All are attributes of
the One Who Is Creating Us.
But here's the scientific fact
I wanted to mention, the scientific reality
I wanted to point out.
As small "m" mind becomes
big "M" Mind, as this happens in more
of us, the whole herd, the entire flock, all
of us will intuit what is happening.
As more of us intuit that realization exists,
that there is a foundation experience which changes
small "i" identity to capital "I" Identity;
the feel of this experience, the intuition of it
will travel like wildfire through the minds of men.
When a few of us know, it won't
take too long for us all to know. It will just
be a matter of... I don't know how long...
a century? A few centuries?
Mind has a different time sense
than men do.
"Do you reckon 1000 years much?"
... "I am large. I contain multitudes".... "It's
just as lucky to die as to be born,
and I know it!" ***
"Between heaven and earth, I alone
I wish to thank all the saints
and bohisattvas who gave me the spirit
and encouragement to finish this article.
I want to thank you, Holy One,
O True One who walks among us...
"Thank you for your Grace, thank you
for your gifts. Thank you for the strength
you have given me.
Without your strength
I am an empty shell.
I praise thee, Holy One! I
praise thee! Thank you for the gifts
you have given all of us.
There is a metaphor that applies
to Homer's Odyssey as well as it applies
to the basic archetypes of mankind.
Telemachus seeks his father; his father seeks
home...In a similar fashion, Man seeks home, too.
His real Home is spiritual completion,
realizing the True One among us.
The True One reaches out to the man
who seeks him, becomes his reflection
in the glass, and allows him to partake
of His divinity.
There is one consciousness.
"The eye through which I see God,
is the eye through which God sees
As it is said in one of the Nag Hammadi
"He knows and he is known."
This is the immaculate truth of the Bridal Chamber.
