On Sacred Nakedness

When two people trust each other so much to get naked in front of each other, something wonderful could happen.

When a soul trusts God so much to get naked in front of Him, devoid of all earthly attachments and desires, something infinitely more wonderful could happen.

A Remark on the Beauty of Artworks

Is it possible to regard an artwork as great but not beautiful?

The beauty of an artwork is something pretty different from the beauty of the subject itself, because even ugliness could be depicted beautifully by a master.

 

The Divine Light Within

I observe the world but I am never observed by anyone, I am not an element of the world but rather its border (as Wittgenstein explained).

What can be said about this “I”? I, the transcendental subject, my true self, is such an object which is not an object at all.  Nevertheless, this approach seems to be pointless, because – according to the Duns Scotus law – any sentence can derive from a self-contradictory sentence.

How then this logical problem could be avoided? For example, by acknowledging that God is the mirror of myself (this is the conclusion from the statement that the world is just my dream). [See my previous post]. Therefore, I could speak about God instead of the transcendental subject (*).

Perhaps it’s just an explanation of the unknown by something more unknown?  I do not agree. If God is the mirror of my Self, I am truly of divine nature, although it can be recognized only within my Self. I’m merely a human being for other people.

I am truly happy, and I love myself because of this inner divine light.

(*) The transcendental subject is called Dreamer in oneiric personalism.

God as the Mirror of Myself

One of the most fundamental distinctions related to oneiric personalism is the distiction between Dreamer and the person I am in this particular dream called life.

As the person I am in this (dream)world, I turn myself over to my Creator, God. Nevertheless, I know that I am this Creator, I am Dreamer.  As Dreamer I am not present in my dream, I cannot “see” myself, therefore I need a mirror.

God – the Absolute of this (dream)world – is the mirror I seek.

God and Dreamer are two “aspects” of the Absolute, they have the very same “nature”, the only difference here is the direction of ontological relations: the (dream)world is related to me (as to Dreamer), yet I am (as the person in this dream) related to God – together with the whole (dream)world.

Oneiric Personalism and The Ontological Barrier

 

ontological barrier

The walking life is just a dream – this sentence is often repeated by persons who claim to be spiritually awakened, but it is pretty paradoxical, because it states that life is as unreal as dreams, yet dreams could be called unreal only in comparison to something more real – namely to life.

How to claim that there is an essential similarity between the walking life and dreams, and to avoid this paradox?

My dreams and my walking life could be called ontologically similar (existing in a similar manner), when they are placed on the same side of the ontological barrier – dividing pure, absolute Being from changing beings (all of them are not entirely real). The “ontological distance” between pure Being and life (this world) is infinitely bigger that the “ontological distance” between dreams and life [as explained on the picture above].

In other words: to awaken spiritually means in this case: to recognize one’s own divine nature.

All my dreamworlds and my walking life are vusmeyans [link].

The absolute Being might be called Dreamer – in a metaphorical sense (because It is not an organism).
