Attention – The Great Electronic Field – Easy Death


MASTER DA FREE JOHN: Attention moves in a great
electronic field, a three-dimensional realm of little
electronic dots. Attention in itself is one dot, in one
position in this moment and in the next moment in another
position, not just in a two-dimensional screen, like a TV,
but in a three-dimensional realm of an infinite number of
electronic dots. Attention can move to any one of those
spaces instantly, without moving through everything in
between. Attention is just the point of awareness, keyed
into a great electronic medium that has the capacity to
represent itself as solid appearances, or just light, or
energy appearances, or darkness, or nothingness

Truly, the entire affair is terrible, absolutely
terrible. It is a horror to contemplate. The only thing that
makes it not seem horrible to us is our capacity to achieve
a state of relative equanimity in our present condition. We
can balance ourselves, feel relatively relaxed and enjoying
something like pleasurable feeling, but we are still not
immortal, Enlightened, Free, Happy. We are just intoxicated
with equanimity. That is why equanimity is not an end in
itself in this Way. It is simply the base for free
attention. We must do something with our attention, having
realized equanimity. We must not just hang around in a
sattvic state, righteously enjoying our balanced condition.
That condition will last only as long as conditions permit
it to last in this world, and it will cease at death. All
kinds of influences can interfere with our equanimity. Thus,
it is not an end in itself.

It is useful to bring the body-mind into a state of
equanimity. It has secondary associations that are
pleasurable, but basically it is only useful. It is a
condition in which our attention is free from bondage to
those conditions that, in equanimity, are now in a state of
balance. Thus, we must use equanimity as a base, an asana on
the base of which we can enter into the contemplation and
samadhi of the Condition or Source of attention.

Consciousness is just like a point, moving in this
infinite, three dimensional crystal, or plane, or sphere of
dots. It feels individuated, separate, and trapped. Wherever
it is, it sees everything around it. Wherever you look,
everything surrounds that center of looking. In the next
moment, you are in this spot, or that spot. There are always
the surrounding forms, motions, and energies. You are
trapped as this little point in the midst of it.

We must take attention away from its preoccupation with,
or bondage to, this infinite medium of dots and let it fall
back into the contemplation of its own Source. When that is
done most profoundly, then there is the inherent or tacit,
spontaneous recognition of the Infinite Field in which this
mechanical act of attention is being moved. Then whenever
attention does move, wherever it moves, its condition and
its objects are inherently, instantly recognizable. They are
still what they are as an appearance, but they are
recognizable in their Source Condition. They do not have the
capacity to destroy Enlightenment, or the Realization of the
Truth. But we must persist in this power of recognition. It
is a kind of Yoga of Enlightenment. Unless we persist in it,
attention will simply continue to arise mechanically in this
great crystal or Mandala. And, Enlightened or not, there is
still the environment of limitation.

Thus, in the Enlightened condition or disposition, we
must exist moment to moment as this Siddhi, or Power, or
Disposition, of recognition. It is this Power that will
Transfigure, Transform, and Translate attention and its
field into the Ultimate Domain. Therefore ultimately all of
that will be replaced or Outshined by the Divine Radiance,
the White Force in which it is appearing. The environment of
appearances is only an apparition based on this mechanism of
attention. If attention is transcended in its Source, the
environment of appearances is recognizable. If the Power of
recognition is magnified, then all of these conditions will
be Outshined by the Radiance that is the Source of

That is Liberation. That is Enlightenment in its ultimate
sense. The Siddhi of Enlightenment guarantees that
Liberation. Enlightenment itself is certainly Liberation,
but it is not an end phenomenon. It is the native Condition.
That native Condition is a Siddhi, a Great power, which
permits us to transcend the limiting force of the Cosmic
Mandala That is the esotericism of the seventh stage of
life. That is the Process to which all those who respond to
me are being drawn. It is That to which you are invited. But
you can only participate in That if you actually live the
Way, achieve equanimity and free attention, resolve
attention in its Source, and then persist in the spontaneous
Siddhi or Process of recognition, until there is the
Outshining of conditional existence.
