What are the Three Attentions of the Human Kind?
And where are the Three Attentions you are talking about? Well that’s a good question.
I will answer, but first I must say that this Three Attention subject is immense. It has all the power to change lives, and yours could be one of them. It can’t be explained in a short blog, so it might take a few. It’s always better when learning something new to take small steps at first, then as we understand we can take bigger and bigger bites of knowledge. So if this is agreeable than please read on.
First, we must come to understand what we truly are as human beings. As human beings we are more than just flesh and bones. Body, spirit, soul, and mind is not all that makes us up as human beings. Do I have you first attention yet?
We are so much more than just all of this! In this multiverse, (no, let’s narrow that down), there is so much more going on in this realm we call life that doesn’t meet our eyes. Most of the time we just look at the world or reality and wonder. Never realizing that what we are truly looking at is not all of what’s really there. We must learn to see the world, not just look at it. (For those who are confused already simply, Read in the dictionary the different meanings of each word “look & see”.) You’ll get it. When we “see” the world, it’s a whole different ball game. One we can play and understand the rules. So, adding to what we are as humans beings, we must include perception. Perception is not only looking and seeing but includes all of our senses. Are you using all of them to the fullest of their extent?
Ok, here we go with the Three Attentions! Since we are as much perception as we are flesh and bones, then let’s take a look at what we perceive and when we perceive. If we look at what we are perceiving and when we are perceiving it, perception changes. I contend that our world, in which we believe to be unique and absolute, is only one of a cluster of consecutive worlds. They are arranged like the layers of and onion.
We have been energetically conditioned from birth to perceive solely our world. I call this the description, the description of this world. We still have the ability of entering into other layers or realms, which are as real, unique, absolute, and engulfing as this one is. Believing that our energetic conditioning is correctable and then usable. We can actually see these other worlds and enter into them. Dreaming is the gateway to infinite. That’s right when we dream are we not still, perceiving? Isn’t it real to us at the moment?
See what I mean about energetic conditioning. We have been taught to believe, that dreams come from our sub-conscience and nothing more than fantasy. This couldn’t be farther for the truth. Your dreams are your second attention. Or should I say that we are in our second attention while we dream. When you’re in the dreaming state it’s as real, if not more, then it is now, in you’re in your first attention.
If you have been following along than you can see. Sometimes it’s hard to remember the events in your second attention but it’s existence is real never the less. So now we must add to being human, our attentions.
Dreams are the gateway to infinity, and part of us human beings! Imagine that. You have the gateway to new worlds, new realities, new life, infinity, all inside of you right now. There is more to us as human beings then we thought. So how do we use this gateway? I told you this subject was immense, frankly, as immense as your dreams and beyond.
Let me ask you a question.
Have you ever woken up from a dream, then come to realize you are still dreaming?
I have and it’s a realization I won’t soon forget. At that moment I realized that what I have learned and put into practice was truth. I must state that dreaming is not the same as daydreams, wishing for, or imagining. Through dreaming we can perceive other worlds, but we can’t describe what makes them, or even what allows us to perceive them. We are immense in our second attention.
This is what I call the second attention and it’s a mystery all on to itself. Just because it’s a mystery doesn’t make it less real, it’s just a mystery! But a mystery we can explore. Do you want to explore more?
If you are still intrigued? There is still more to be seen. Dreaming can only be experienced, reason doesn’t apply. Dreaming seems to be an experience, a sensation, a world all to itself. It’s an awareness in our minds or experience in our being. Don’t get caught up in a description. If we try to shed light on this predicament we are left with two choices. One, we can cater to our hurt rationality and patch Reason up. Saying we are sorry, elephants can’t fly and everything we experience in dreaming is an illusion. Or we can understand it as an energetic configuration of awareness. Your decision may be the result of a rearrangement of reality. A whole new you! Happy Holidays!
Hence the definitive reason for this work. One must understand the struggle of modern-day folks like ourselves, to steer away from concreteness to the abstract. In the abstract the search for freedom and the freedom to perceive, without obsession or energy conditions is all that’s humanly possible. Freedom! Obsession deliberately reduces the scope of what we can perceive and makes us believe that the mold into which we fit our perception is all that exists. Not freedom at all.
I am convinced that for us to survive now, our perception must change its social base. Our social base (our description), guides us and teaches us to perceive the world the way we do! How than should we perceive the world.
See it this way, that everything is energy. The energy of LOVE. The whole multiverse is energy our social base should be a physical certainty of that, energy is all there is, and all we are. Are you still with me? Do you LOVE me? Energy is energy we have both alternatives at our finger tips. Maybe it’s time for a picture. And a choice!
Small bites remember. Maybe we should take a break! Have you made your choice? There is no reason to not choose the totality of ones self. What’s left is a description, if you don’t. How’s that description working for you so far? We have only scratched the surface here. The social base is a serious and fierce effort to give us a description, a mold we can all live with in, and the mold makes the world what we all perceive. If we are to survive we must change this mold and perceive energy directly, as it is all energy! It’s no different then being born again! Where have you heard that? But most people don’t even know what that means. To perceive the world as hard objects having a positive or negative value forces us to believe that the world is made up of objects that are necessary for your survival. Hence, we are now forced to believe this is so. Of course we live in a world of objects. I am not arguing this fact, I am saying that first we live in a world of energy, then a world of objects. If we don’t start with the premise that it’s all energy then come to realize this point first, we will never be able to perceive that we live in a world of energy, and never be able to embrace this LOVE energy. We’ll be stuck in a world of objects. Ho hum. To perceive the essence of everything will make us understand, classify, and describe the world in an entirely new, more exciting, more sophisticated, totally different way. Let’s stop here for now. But before we break, let’s add all together what makes us human beings up to this point. First, we are flesh, bones and blood. Then we are of body, spirit, soul and mind, right? Then attentions and perception. Wow, look how much you have grown in such a short time. But that’s not all. Chew on this for a while. Small bites. We’ll come back.
