Part and Whole
The concept of self-less-ness, has been around for a very long time since humanoids started their so called mental evolutionary processes. But it has been always very very difficult to understand much less empathize how humans can lose their concept of selves, and replace it with humble worship and service to all life except their own.
I recently had a small epiphany through a very well-known example, sometime probably used here and there also; but this time it made sense a lot more effectively. I was researching the dreaded Ebola virus of Zaire which has now mutated and taken a deadly strain to another level and how this may prove to be the next possible death of mankind (propelled of course by our gods). So when I looked at the human body, containing all different types of cells from different organ and functions. It made all sense.
All cells believe that their sustenance is the key and that they are the most important key to themselves *they do not know that they are part of the whole*, this does not go to say that they go ahead with pure selfish thought also. They work as if their sustenance is important and that is right, but at the same time give faith, or perhaps do not actively go out of their way to harm the entire system. When they work like this, no matter what they may be – a leg bone cell or a brain cell, they contribute to the whole. If it came to me, as a person who has over a trillion cells in the body. I could say that their entire sustenance is the key to my one person’s survival.
This is the same concept which is used again and again in nature, of which we are singular micro cellular (or micro evolutionary counterparts), we are not the centre of this universe of action; but that being said – we contribute to the one and whole. If the one has to experience greatness and power and wisdom and love and it through illusory experience then it must have all the singular counterparts also well and not cannibalizing themselves right?
Put in another way, there is no need for rampant viral action like that of ebola virus (which can be attributed as our copy or our demise; whichever comes first as compromise). In fact one has to just sustain, contemplate and be. This when done with the greater glory and meditation given to the self (the bigger/grander/wiser self in micro and macro cosmic space-time). The self has no reason to not glow with this power. Individual self now harmonizing and synergizing their individual nuclear reactor powers towards one. This is also what many self-will theorists say in the longer run – but to keep such a perspective that the over mind (as Nietzsche has put it time again) is a sum total of its parts and when the parts are all firing up in different directions – the over mind is but theory, it is but in ancient texts and ruins of lore. There is no real realization happening here now. But when the individuations keep praising and praying to their selves and their grander selves, something extraordinary (already happening) now happens. The over mind is now an astute reality. There is realization which is the function of creation sustenance and destruction happening here now.
The purpose of birth love and death and re-birth is now fulfilled.
The individual cells of the body as long as they do not believe as the be all end all of creation are perfectly synced and fine in functioning of things to be. This is what the epiphany spoke; and as I meditate with mantra and emotion and action and meditation – the grander self becomes apparent – self-willed and driven to action or to just be. The purpose of part and whole now seem to me as an endless spiral (of nature’s particularly intricate fetish design); the spiral going forever bigger and smaller, in quanta of consciousness yet remaining constant with all other variables that anyone can imagine!
The only cause of worry can remain when we state that the sum whole is us, and without the realization that we always are never the whole. We are the whole yet of so many parts that we can be whole. And much more than that if we so desire. This is the desire / not kama but intention or will which can provide this impetus. The impetus can never weaken by the way. Peace
Peace and Love
