In The Beginning Was The Goddess
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. -James 1:1 (KJV).
The power of word, or rather, the power of sound has been known to be a powerful force to the ancients. Particularly in the Eastern traditions, practices such as mantra, the repetition of certain sounds, are known for their abilities to alter and expand consciousness. Further, sound is often related to creation, with wavelike vibrating molecules creating an orchestra that gives the appearance of particles, which further gives the appearance of creation.
In Vedic philosophy, sound through speech is personified as a Goddess, Vak. Through syncretization with Tantrik philosophy, particularly of the Samkhya Tradition, a scientific school of consciousness exploration, the Goddess is often identified with Prakriti, or the laws of nature. Prakriti, is nature herself, not only of objects but the movement of objects, while the masculine Purusha is simply the conscious observer of Prakriti. Therefore, the beginning of creation, where the vibration of molecules create our universe is the result of sound, something that the ancients understood as the feminine.
Jim Carrey Knows What's Up
"You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." ―Morpheus, to Neo (The Matrix)
Every now and then, mainstream media gives us hints about something bigger than what we've been "officially" told. GaiaTV has given us Hollywood Decoded, where those ignorant of occult symbolism and meaning can finally grasp what a certain few have known for some time, while people fight over petty differences like pawns on a chessboard. As if we really are our individuated personalities separate from the next soul.
However, there are a few who seem to grasp even deeper depths beyond occult knowledge, typically only known to yogis who have discovered the emptiness of our form, our senses, our perception, our discrimination, and our consciousness, as described by the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara in the Sutra of the Heart of Highest Wisdom. As quantum physics have shown, there is significant empty space between our atoms, and nothing really touches each other, like a holographic illusion. In other words, mass is an illusion, a dance between energy and the speed of light. The problem? We're attached, deluded, and drunk off of this illusion, which leads us into a cycle of suffering known as the wheel of samsara.
To grasp that emptiness beyond the illusion, the neti neti of yogic self-inquiry, to move beyond the story personality to the "fragrance in the air", is to take the most potent red pill.
Thank you Jim Carrey for taking the red pill in a blue pill world! I love you for your films like "The Truman Show", and "Bruce Almighty", etc. Though, I kinda hate you for "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
P.S. For those saying he is engaging "spiritual ego", I strongly suggest researching what "ego" actually is from Self-realization schools as well as going to the traditional advaita vedanta texts. Ego is your persona, your story, your role within the illusion, not the arrogance definition propagated in the West that has gotten mixed in with the spiritual concept. Further, Mr. Carrey appears to be living and expressing his truth and the wisdom he has gained, as opposed to simply playing the expected role of a celebrity. If you're going to play the game of the illusion, you might as well do it from the position of know thy self, something which lies beyond the personality.
Overly educated and continuously exploring and revealing more behind the veil.
"It cannot be too highly emphasized that the mystic swims in the same waters in which the psychotic drowns."
