The Chinese Master Wu Wen
The great master Wu Wen began his practices of meditation under the wise guidance of master Tuo Weng. The first Koan or mysterious phrase that he queried while in meditation was the following: “It is not mind; it is not Buddha; it is not thing.”
So, while seated in the oriental style, Wu Wen concentrated his mind on that phrase, trying to comprehend its deep significance.
The Science of Meditation
The void is very difficult to explain, because it is indefinable and indescribable. The void cannot be described or be expressed with human words, because the different languages of the Earth can only designate existing things and feelings. Thus, by no means is it an exaggeration to say that human languages are not adapted to describe things and feelings that are nonexistent, and nevertheless are tremendously real. Thus, to attempt to define the illuminated void in the enclosed fields of a language fenced by the forms of existence is, beyond any doubt, foolish and mistaken.
Inner Remembering of One’s Self
Even though it seems incredible, when aspirants are observing themselves they do not remember their Self.
Indeed, beyond any doubt, aspirants do not perceive their Self; they have no cognizance of their Self.
It seems inconceivable that when Gnostic aspirants self-observe their mannerisms when they laugh, speak, walk, etc., they forget their Self; this is incredible, but true.
Division of the Attention
Those who have studied our Gnostic teachings, those who have studied this Christmas message, if they indeed become interested in the path of the razor’s edge and the inner realization of their Being, will feel the longing to see, hear, smell, touch, and sense the great realities of the superior worlds.
Every human being can arrive to the experience of reality. Every human being has the right to great living experiences of the spirit, to know the kingdoms and nations of the molecular and electronic regions.
