Have and Eat the Cake in Dependent Origination

Dependent Origination

What are you now?

Energy. Anything expressed or only potential?

Expressed. Pattern. Do you know yourself outside of expression? I don’t.

Your consciousness can transcend this pattern? It can transcend the pattern and it caused the pattern.

What elements incorporate themselves into your pattern? What colors are there in your aura or spirit? You could apply any sensory descriptor, they would all have the same meaning.

Remember earlier, I spoke of coincidence? The third factor that arises between any two causes? When you have cake and want to eat it, can you have your cake and eat it too?

I lose the cake when I eat it. It appears that you lose the cake when you eat it, and that you cannot eat the cake while you leave it in its original form. Yet the cake exists in your sphere of experience because you can both have and eat the cake. When you eat it, you still have it, as it only returns to its point of origin. When you have the cake you have already eaten it, as that was the purpose for your creating it in the first place. I guess it’s sort of like the uncertainty principle. There appears to be linear cause and effect because we focus our attention either on the apparent cause or the apparent effect.

Don’t we change the pattern of the cake when we eat it into something else? We do change the pattern of the matter that was involved in the cake, but we do not change the pattern that originates cake.

The pattern is there to be used again? Yes, as are all patterns.

Like a mold for clay? Yes, exactly.

And don’t we constantly make new patterns? I would argue that we do not constantly make new patterns. We instead redefine or recombine originating forces or seeds of potential. What we work with, that shows up as a pattern, isn’t restricted to what the pattern looks like when it manifests. Every event, whether we judge it a successful intention or not, is still the manifestation of this process.

So the end results aren’t the pattern? No. The pattern is a transitory state.

Would the end results be creation? That which is created? The end result could be divine expression, or the song of consciousness.

Are archetypes a form of these patterns? Archetypes are a meta-pattern, a protoform pattern that gives rise to other more specific patterns.

Is a person a pattern changing with time and the progression of the pattern? No. A person is not a pattern. They express patterns. The events in their life are the by-product of the disposition of the person’s awareness. Where your attention is at, that is what defines what patterns you will experience, why things seem mysterious, why good intentions seem to lead to bad outcomes. It is actually not a huge mystery.

Is the pattern the experience? It is, yes.

Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
