Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) once wrote a book entitled, BE HERE NOW!  The phrase means being open and connected to the moment which is Divine Consciousness.  When you can achieve this your world becomes alive with possibilities you never imagined!

Peace of mind, bliss are right here, right now!

Note:  The most recent version of this, (as a book) is THE POWER OF NOW, by Eckhart Tolle.

The genesis of reality is called tarka in Sanskrit.  It is the Consciousness manifested in material form (cit-sakti in San.).  To recorgnize the difference between your idea of reality and what really exists, the true nature of reality, practice becoming aware of awareness!  How to?

An exercise:

1.  Visually:  Shift your awareness from your normal apprehension to consciousness itself.  Expand your perception, by defocusing your vision.  Become aware of everything in your entire field of view.  Sometimes it helps to start this by focusing on one point, or feature of an object, until you´re      `seeing´ (and feeling) EVERYTHING!

2.  Aurally:  Close your eyes.  Listen (`hear´) what `sounds´ like electric current.  Not in your ears, however, but in your mind.  This is the sound of the Universe, what we call the Guan Yin!

A personal explanation of… I was once standing on our house porch waiting for my wife.  The cicadias in nearby trees were `chanting.´ their chant, a vibration so strong it sucked me up into another `world!´  I´ll never forget what it felt like, suddenly apart of everything!   The power of conciousness had been activated, allowing the feeling of being connected to the Universe.  In Sanskrit this is called, ananda.

THE GOAL, in Sanskrit is called SAMAVESA:  Total immersion in the Divine!  In otherwords, spiritual experience of reality consists of completely understanding that you are an expression of Divine Consciousness!

You are consciousness that was vibrated into material form, a body.  But, you´re not just that body.  You are a microcosm of Divine Consciousness, some call God, some call Siva, some call Shakti!  The Greeks called it Zeus.  Many names for the same thing!

So, now that you know who you really are, start spreading that wisdom!

If you believe you, your body-ego, is all there is, then death (the shedding of the body) becomes something to avoid!

Realize you are much more than material!  You are a microcosm of Divine Consciousness!  Once you discover this and start identifying with it, your fear of death lessons!

Start chanting:  I am not of this world.  I transcend all things!  I am Divine Conscioiuness!  This awareness enables us to experience the divine in all things!

To all things, people, etc., say to yourself:  I AM YOU, AND YOU ARE ME!

Ego = pain!  But, pain, the greatest of all teachers!  No pain, no pleasure!

Understanding, what´s involved via esoterica… Thus, going back to the beginning… If no now-ending, no beginning…

In the beginning, the manifestation of existence came forth as the Universe (what astronomers call the BIG BANG).

This was the result  of an impulse, the natural creative urge (iccha in Sanskrit) of the Divine to seek greater knowledge (jnana in Sanskrit) by action (kriya in Sanskrit).  It happened, and it´s happening now…

The three powers of the Divine (Siva-Shakti) are:  Will, Knowing, and Action!  Siva-Shakti are, Consciousness, Bliss and Freedom!

What they (Siva-Shakti) did was to precognate creation by Will, Knowing, and Action, all aimed at an espression of Being!   But, Siva-Shakti knew they must equip embodied form with understanding (jana in San.)  This has to do with how energy flows most effectively in embodied form (`life´) so it can emerge and empower activity (kriya in San.)

When Divine Consciousness became dual-embodied (aware of itself, I AM, nee ego) it created both pain and pleasure (limit and unlimitedness).  But, as mentioned above, the way of the greatest lesson!  This, to eventually achieve the consumation of duality with non dualiry (Singularity) — greater consciousness!  We become a God (we use God(s) in Tantric Taoism, as we believe in Polytheism).

This the goal of existence, and the ego was a necessary element to achieve such.

The following inspired by TANTRA ILLUSTRATED, by C.D Wallis

The Tantric Taoist view of reality…

There are as many realities as there are people.  We can´t demonstrate another reality that we (humans) haven´t experienced personally (are aware of).  To be aware of something and give it a name creates it.  Thus, our realities subjective, and we share each of ours via language (nee dictionaries).

Wholeness (Divinity) comes from subduing the personal ego, when object becomes subject!  Is this God?

Christians, and other religions rely on faith.  But, what is faith,  but a kind of hope that something exists or will happen in the future.

Faith and belief are penultimate (next to last, not final).

C.G. Jung when asked if he believed in God, he said, I DON´T HAVE TO BELIEVE, I KNOW!

You have to `no´and `noing´ is the Way of

God(s) are consciousness (energy vibrating)!  And we (humanity) are a part of such, the `won´ illuminating Light of the true Reality!

It´s a matter of semantics (the occult versus the Tantra), but there´s ultimately no Veil to dissolve — to see the truth.  It´s just a matter of us (humanity) realizing we are a version of the sublime consciousness in material form!

Consciousness is a very high vibration.  Material, at a much lower frequency (vibration).  Thus, it´s a matter of raising the frequency to match.

This happens automatically when humans lose the body (material), but the idea is to accomplish before `death.´  Then you add all the `color´(life´s experiences) to the total consciousness.

Additionally, this raises your status, allowing for some retention of your logos.   You then are able to manifest in some form on different planes, helping humans who are still trapped in their              `prisons´ (bodies).

Everyone thinks bodily life so great, when it´s `life´- afterwards (so called `death´) that is sublime!

Start identifying with your spirit now!  The body goes in the end!

Learn to overcome the so-called OTHER idea (duality), the experience of reality as everything separated from everything else.  We are all `won!´

When you look at something, an ojbect or person, say this to yourself:

I AM YOU, AND YOU ARE ME!

i AM THE BED AND THE BED IS ME!

I AM THE BICYCLE AND THE BICYCLE IS ME!

I AM S/HE, AND S/HE IS ME!

Tantric practice is basically learning how to dissolve duality into singularity, via union with the divine (using a sexual metaphor).
