The Grid, Flying in Meditation and other musings

All realms where living beings exist are held together in a complex structure created and based on the needs of their inhabitants. Realms of humans, gods and lower beings, as well as the animal, hungry ghost and hell realms, arise from causes and conditions that facilitate their manifestation from energetic grid models interior to their outer manifestation. In previous teachings on how to be more effective doing world peace prayers, as well as teachings regarding how the world actually exists, I have explained how energetic grids act as transitional supports for vibrational manifestation.
Our particular realm has a certain kind of energetic grid that is a pre-manifestation, or subtler energetic version, of the human realm that we recognize the ordinary world we live in. In the same way, in other realms, other structures operate as the support for the different kinds of manifestation of that particular perceptual realm. Because everything that has form is actually empty of self-existence from its own side, it is possible for this grid to arise due to the needs of beings with karma to experience certain kinds of effects, thereby providing an environment commensurate with those needs. Excerpt from Chapter 9. "Reality and the Grid of Manifestation"

Many have a karmically acquired spiritual nature that naturally effervesces during meditation. This will sometimes cause her or him to have extraordinary experiences, feeling light as a feather, heavy as a rock or feel like they are flying in the sky. These refreshing experiences can easily come to those with previous development. It is a sign of karmic accomplishment from the past. However, this is not how we’re going to become enlightened, only a sign of capability to continue training that actually began earlier. It's not even a good substitute for a real spiritual practice" ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~

"Es gibt viele Menschen mit einer karmisch spirituellen Natur, die beim Meditieren natürlich aufsprudelt. Das führt manchmal zu aussergewöhnlichen Erlebnissen, man fühlt sich leicht wie eine Feder, schwer wie ein Stein oder als ob man im Himmel fliegt - lauter neue Erfahrungen, die bei jenen mit vorheriger Entwicklung auftreten. Dies sind Zeichen für karmische Fertigkeiten aus der Vergangenheit. Jedoch werden wir auf diese Weise nicht erleuchtet, es sind nur Zeichen einer Fähigkeit, in der Vergangenheit begonnenes Training fortsetzen zu können. Dies ist noch nicht einmal ein guter Ersatz für echte spirituelle Praxis."- Domo Geshe Rinpoche---


Beaucoup ont acquis par le karma une nature spirituelle qui entre en effervescence naturellement durant la méditation. Cela aura tendance à leur causer ( à il ou elle) des expériences extraordinaires, comme se sentir léger comme une plume, aussi lourd qu'un roc, ou bien encore avoir le sentiment de voler dans le ciel. Ces expériences rafraichissantes peuvent facilement se produire chez ceux disposant d'un développement antérieur. C'est le signe d'un accomplissement karmique en provenance du passé. Cependant, ceci n'est pas une façon d'obtenir l’Éveil, simplement il s'agit là d'un signe de compétence à continuer l'entraînement qui en fait a déjà commencé. Ceci n'est même pas un bon substitut pour une réelle pratique spirituelle"~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~


True refuge is like being in Buddhist heaven, but here and now ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~

Wahre Zufluchtnahme ist wie im buddhistischen Himmel zu sein, aber im Hier und Jetzt" - Domo Geshe Rinpoche ---
