MAHAKALA DHARMA DEFENDER

Mahakala-Dharma-Defender-Kyle-Fite

Mahakala Dharma Defender Artflip Talisman

At Space Hoodoo HQ, we have created a small talisman which serves the Dharma through its Transmutative Tendency. This is the Mahakala DD Artflip.

In previous blogs, we’ve discussed how coins acquire a build up of energy over years of contact with numerous environments and situations. The more intense the energy field, the more of an imprint is left within the coin. Such fields of experience may include the joyful and ecstatic but more often than not, they are vivified by intense fear and anger.

Of all objects, most coins would befuddle any attempt at psychometric investigation. There is simply too much information as most loose change tends to be “on the move,” changing hands and changing lanes.

Coins route all of this incoming energy into chambers corresponding to energy level and type. The dominant “coloration” of each coin gives it a unique energetic signature-and THIS is what may be psychometrically divined. For this purpose, Astrological language and symbol is highly practical. Thus, we may regard a particular coin as being predominantly Mercurial, Venusian, Martial and so forth.

Most coins we will encounter are of the Martial variety.

To make practical use of this fact, we chose the image of Mahakala to serve as a Transmutative Agent whereby the coin’s energy signature may function as a type of battery for the empowerment of Dharma Defense within the consciousness of its carrier.

Mahakala is an impressive Deity venerated in many Eastern Schools. As consort of Kali, he is most absolutely a Fierce God, a Destroyer. He is, from this standpoint, the epitome of the Martial. This power, however, typifies the vanquishing effects of TIME. In this regard, we may find a strong Saturnian energy present. On an even deeper level, the Mahakala is just that: Maha (BEYOND) Kala (TIME). The tearing down of that which is subject to time tends toward the Gnosis which is Beyond Time.

This artflip is intended for display on an active altar or within a shrine. It may carried upon one’s person to maintain contact with the Trans-Plutonic Consciousness which is to say, the Dharma. As a radionic device, it is meant to attract, absorb and transmute the five Kleshas into the five Wisdoms.

This object is hand crafted to order. Each coin is selected from our collection and placed in an artflip painted specifically for you.

The Mahakala DD Artflip is being offered at $25. To carry it with awareness is to take the Middle Way (Mahayana) between Form and Void, to be “In the World but not OF IT.” As we are busy with numerous projects and each Artflip is made by hand, we cannot guarantee that this item will be offered indefinitely. Please contact us as to availability.

Form or Void? It Depends…

hui

When the historic Buddha died, he left behind two bodies, the Form Body and the Dharma Body. The former was his physical vehicle and, by extension, included those material objects closely connected to it, such as his robe or begging bowl. For his surviving followers, these items were regarded as a vital link to the Enlightened One and became objects of veneration.

The Dharma Body, on the other hand, was far less material. This Body was comprised of the teachings of the Buddha. However, the idea that the Dharma Body was merely a collection of Sutras misses the point. The Sutras are an expression of the Enlightenment of the Buddha and, therefore, the Dharma Body is that very Enlightenment Itself.

Because this is the case, veneration of objects or the so-called “Form Body” may seem a bit absurd. After all, the Enlightenment of the Buddha has declared that Form is Void.

However, that same Enlightenment also declared that Void is Form. Yet if this true, we may ask if some Forms are more Void than others. And then we might as well just sit down and take the brass knuckles of the Buddha’s Fist square in the jaw. It’s ALL Void, from the scrap of loincloth supposedly worn beneath the Bodhi Tree to the Chicken Nuggets handed out through a drive-through window in a bag made from 90% recycled paper.

I find it quite ironic that Zen Patriarch Hui Neng communicated all of this so clearly and yet his followers mummified his body to worship!

If you cannot understand your own flesh and blood as the Form Body of the Buddha, you will never touch the Form Body…which is also the Void Body….which is No Body, at all.

The Lifespan Chapter of the Lotus Sutra lays out the situation. The historic Buddha (Shakyamuni, Guatama, Siddartha etc), was not THE Buddha but simply a Spacetime Manifestation of the Thus Come One who has endured from countless ages past. When the Thus Come One reveals his Lifespan in the Lotus Sutra, we understand “Buddha” to mean something much more than a historical personage. “The Buddha” is the True Entity of Life Itself which must be present in All Life. As the T’ien T’ai school teaches the Oneness of Life and its Environment (and Environment also encompasses the subjectivity of perception), we seek in vain for a Realization of the Buddha outside ourselves.

This simplicity, however, seems to be too much for most people and, as a result, we find humans venerating other humans as somehow superior to themselves. True Teachers attempt to guide the hungering souls around them into this Wisdom but it’s all but impossible. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard human parrots talking about how “Swami X wants us to think for ourselves.”

Of course, Swami X would be put out of business and have to resort to the begging bowl if his followers ever did just this. You can’t have an Ashram full of Gurus.

Hence, the Invisibles, the “Trashman Grand Master” ala Hesse’s Journey to the East, The Rosicrucians (who aren’t wont to advertise themselves). You can’t find them out and they won’t be replying to your Facebook comments.

There is only one way to make contact and that is by becoming one of them. Yet almost all “Aspirants” seem to think that contacting them is essential to becoming them. I knew a fellow who drove all over the West Coast looking for a Guru. Apparently, it was the place to find one. Decades passed and the guy is still as lost as ever. Of course, Swami X will just rephrase Tolkien’s “Not all who wander are lost,” pass the collection plate and keep the game going.

Guruyoga is a very subtle art. Once skill is therein achieved, an outside observer wouldn’t be able to identify Guru or Chela.

I know of one young man who entered fully into this field. There was no speaking to him of his Teacher, his Guru. There was only speaking-and speaking from the heart. If this sounds like a warm and fuzzy interchange, you’d be sadly mistaken. The Fire of Spirit Illumines the Way, it is true. It also burns down all that is not Itself.

The Dharma Body is what gives the Form Body its FORM.

Without this Knowing, the loincloth of the Buddha is just another pair of dirty Depends.

Change brings Death

deathflip

1975 D Lincoln Lodgeroom Death Head

Notes re: the fashioning of a flip (from the Numisgnostic Notebook):

Change retrieved via a quick stop at the local gas station yields up a Death Head Lincoln. The coin isn’t etched by a rail-riding hobo. It’s clearly gone through the grind of vending machines and the like. The result? The profile of the 16th President of the United States worn, by chance or fate, into a skull.

Flip assembled at Corrosion Corp HQ. Pencil sketch. Ink. Colored Pen. Acrylic paint. Watercolor and then fixative applied.

The skull is read along Masonic lines. Not a morbid image of death but rather THAT WHICH REMAINS. The Eternal. The Self, no longer masked by the ego which has been aptly labeled the “Psuedo-self.”

Hence, this flip incorporates the image of the Square and Compasses, the conjoining of terrestrial and celestial space, our mortal life joined with an eternal consciousness transcending the wilting ego’s identification with the Psuedo-self.

The Mosaic Pavement-or checkerboard-is the field of seeming duality in which the Trifold Flame (a variant on the Hebrew letter SHIN) manifests to commence the creative work of the Tekton.

This particular coin, conjoined with its painted housing, is neither a Memento Mori nor Carpe Diem. Rather, its function is to serve as a magical link to the ever-present Interzone between self & Self whereby is realized the Gnosis of the “Word made Flesh.” As such, it now serves as the Corrosion Corp as a Temple Talisman.”

Working in the Factor-Y

coin

” ‘All phenomena invariably possess the Ten Factors’ is another way of saying that life as it changes moment by moment never loses the Ten Factors. No one can say ‘I have no nyoze-so (appearance).’ Everyone has a face and figure. He also has nyoze-sho (mind or nature). He cannot exist like a stone. Actually, even a stone has its nyoze-sho. The same is true for nyoze-tai (entity).”

-Daisaku Ikeda “Selected Lectures on the Gosho Vol. 1”

The opening words of this quote are from Miao-Lo. Ikeda’s comment is simply wonderful. For those unfamiliar with the terminology, it’s all really quite simple. The “Ten Factors” are ways in which Life functions in the Universe. All life may be found to express the Ten Factors. Because of this, we (as humans) share these same functions with all other forms of life. We may not be aware of this and our focus might be on how we differ from this or that. And, of course, we will observe such distinctions. But if we wish to work as Shamans in the Universe, it is critical that we understand Miao-Lo’s statement. Our next (and more practical) step will be discovering the Access Points into “Factor Functions” within the Life of any given object we are approaching.

In Marie Corelli’s book The Soul of Lilith, the protagonist, El-Rami, converses with a monk from his Mystery School. The two are engaged in an intense dialogue over the nature of El-Rami’s investigations into the Mysteries of the Universe. An insect enters into the room, disturbing the debate, and the monk speaks:

“This creature flew in as I opened the window…what quaint and charming stories of Flower-land it could tell us if we but understood its language! Of the poppy-palaces and rose-leaf saloons colored through by the kindly sun, of the loves of the lady-birds and the political controversies of the bees! How dare we make a boast of wisdom! This tiny denizen of air baffles us; it knows more than we do.”

El-Rami, however, is eager to impress upon the monk his knowledge of “The Inhabitants of Sirius-Their Laws, Customs and Progress.” All of this obtained second-hand through his medium, the girl Lilith whose body is kept “alive” by means of El-Rami’s “science,” whereby her imprisoned Soul may wander in Realms otherwise inaccessible to him.

The monk is able to immediately access what El-Rami seeks. El-Rami asks him how he cannot be floored by his extraterrestrial reports. The monks replies:

“Of course I am interested. It is impossible not to be interested in everything, even in the development of a grub.”

As the conversation goes on, the Monk postulates the eventual discovery of “The Clue” to Everything.

El-Rami reacts with some vehemence.

“If we are bound to know…then every living creature is bound to know, since every living creature suffers cruelly, in wretched ignorance of the cause of its suffering. To every atom, no matter how infinitely minute, must be given this ‘explanation,’ to dogs and birds as well as men, nay even to flowers must be declared the meaning of the mystery.”

The monk replies simply:

“Unless the flowers know already…which is quite possible.”

The flowers, like the “stone” referred to by Daisaku Ikeda, possess all ten factors. Because this is so, it is possible to commune with ANYTHING if we can discover (or build) a lattice between its factors and ours. It is essential to develop skill in this Lattice-Work as Beings may speak very different languages. To a degree, we might consider Lattice-Work as the establishment of an Esoteric Translation Station.

At SpaceHoodoo HQ, we have a variety of altar spaces. These are also active laboratories where Communion via Lattices takes place. It is truly exciting when such work gives way to new directions on The Path. Most recently, we received communication from a particular Living Stone which revealed Itself as a “Master” in its field. It indicated the manner in which the Numisgnostic Work is to open up into the Mineral Kingdom.

Numisgnosis is an Idiosyncratic Field, to say the least. As we progress with the book SING THIS CORROSION, we also reflect on the fact that this is a text without a genre, a book whose topic has no audience. But it is, never the less, a way of describing a Mandala Access Point (or M.A.P.). Once one has entered the Mandala, everything breaks open. If you can commune with a PENNY, you can commune with ANYTHING. You’ll have learned, directly and through experience, the Physics of Communion.

The Scales fall from the Eyes and the World, as King Crimson says, is your Oyster Soup Kitchen Floor Wax Museum.

BREAK A BUCK & TRY YOUR LUCK

change
After one has found their Numisgnostic Contact Coin (also known as the “Portal Penny”) and begun acquiring some of the basic supplies needed for continued work (see our previous entry in this series), there is the issue of how to acquire further coins.

It’s true that Pennies will continually present themselves along the Path. They’ll be spied in both strange and commonplace spaces, handed out from cash registers with a fistfull of change and even gifted to you as others begin to learn of your new found “hobby.” To be continually active in a variety of Numisgnostic Operations, however, you’ll definitely want to increase the regular flow of coinage in your sphere of Work. Banks aren’t terribly surprised when coin-collecting customers “purchase” bulk rolls of any denomination and avid searchers will frequently walk in and out the doors with quite a bundle.

In my own experience, however, I began examining coins without the money to purchase-or time to sort through and exchange-a full “bank box.” If one is approaching this work with the primary goal of discovering some beyond rare mint-error (and retiring after the auction), it only makes sense to increase the “chance of winning” with this approach. In Numisgnosis, however, the searching is primarily concerned with Psychometric Finds and my own limits, with both funds and time, led to a more quick and concentrated approach, utilizing single rolls of Pennies. I would acquire these, not from banks, but cashiers (guaranteed to be a bit more baffled by the roll request than your local banker).

fire

Basically, if you have 50 cents, you can ask to swap it for a roll of Pennies almost anywhere. The gas station, grocery store, wherever. I’ve been told “no” but this is part of the voyage. Move on and hit up the next likely locale. If you’ve got a dollar, it will score you TWO rolls (100 coins) and, in context of Magickal and Psychometric Investigation, this is quite the pile!

Some will want to set up several “bins” at Home Base where acquired coins can be seperated. One bin can be for those swapped and another for those returned with change. A box can be set up for those found on the street and another for those gifted from others (and don’t be shy about asking friends and family to hang onto their pennies for you…most people won’t find the monetary value of a few cents of any concern but they WILL enjoy making someone else’s day with a little gift).

pennies

Some Corp Members will keep an elaborate and detailed record to observe trends in the flow. This is, admittedly, tedious but worthwhile. By noting WHAT you acquire and through WHICH Channels, you begin to get a picture of the Invisible Forces working through your activity in Numisgnosis. For example, out of 10 rolls you’ve swapped out around town, you might notice that 1981 D cents dominate the total haul. You might only have found a single 1963 from a thousand.
One one hand, this situation may reflect the simple odds of finding any given coin in circulation. On the other, the Numisgnostic, working actively with the Contact Coin as a Beacon into the Magickal Universe, will find that certain coins will truly be attracted to him (or her)! They will travel long distances over periods of time to arrive in the Temple.
There is an interplay between Chance and Intention here-and this interplay is similar to how we find ourselves in this Spacetime Environment as Entities with Power to Effect Change and Decision Making Capacity interacting with a seemingly Objective World in which events occur outside of our Willing.

From this vantage point, our continuing work in this field may be likened to certain games which evoke Chance, Choice and Magick (again in the Crowleyan sense, Old Crow having stated that “Every Intentional Act is a Magickal Act”).

We’ll address some of these games down the line. They include Magic The Gathering which (along with many others like it) may be used as a Vehicle for Spiritual Growth. The point is: Numisgnosis, as we’ve discussed it thus far, will be profitably treated as such a Gamespace IF we regard Gaming as a Spiritual (and, perhaps more appropriately, SHAMANIC) Endeavor.

For the moment, don’t let a lack of funds foil the fun or stay the Way. Swap a buck and try your luck. Not unlike booster packs purchased for Magic, each roll of Lincolns is guaranteed to contain at least ONE “Rare.” If you don’t see it, sort ’em until you DO.

We’ll eventually get to the Mission where you swap two bits for a roll and find EVERY SINGLE COIN to be a SUPER CHARGED WINNER.

But that Mission has nothing to do with Luck of the Draw…it’s balls out Shamanix.

Turtles all the way UP!

deva

An Image, a Visage-as I’m wont to scrawl (pencil, watercolor, red wine and gold ink).

This is Devadatta of the Lotus Sutra. There are various views on Devadatta but he is often understood as a Villian, the Doer of Evil who, according to the Saddarma Pundarika, is promised Salvation and Buddhahood. Holding the heritage of a “right bastard,” this Promise presents a “Hope in Hell” for those who feel fully FUBAR. It’s one of several amazing proclamations in the Lotus Sutra. If Devadatta will make it, so can anyone else. But there is another proclamation. It is revealed that Devadatta was the One who originally taught the Human Entity who would become Buddha, the Enlightened One.

From the Stars, from SPACE, comes the Word. Despite the corruption of Time, Space is, at the End, what it was at the Beginning. “Divided,” as the Goddess Nuit says in the Book of the Law, “For Love’s Sake, for the Chance of Union.”

We might then view Devadatta as both Cause and Effect. The Connective Interlude is evident in our individual lives. From Hubris and Hatred to Shame and Despair, we are Devadatta. Shakyamuni, in his Final Revelation, offers the Lotus as the Grand Symbol of the Simultaneity of Cause and Effect. Application of this revelation is a form of Magic.

I recall reading a list of Magical Powers in Tibetan Buddhism. Each Power had a corresponding Stage of Enlightenent.

Which comes first, the Chicken or the Egg?

In my own experience, I’ve found the Quest for Strange Powers as an alluring achievement to be a Dead End Road. It’s only been when a certain Understanding-or Gnosis-has been entered that the Powers download. They arrive and we are amazed. We can teleport, shift through time, read another’s mind. But all of our previous ambitions have gone up in flames.

The New Ability flows along the Lines of Understanding.

With this image I endeavored to capture a Moment in Time wherein Devadatta Soulshifts, Space flowing into Time. The Sinister shimmers into the Sacred. The Damned becomes Daemonic.

Devadatta makes me reflect on Yeats’ classic line:

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity”

With Shakyamuni’s Revelation, the “Best” is restored, given a place on the Stage of Time wherein its long locked “passionate intensity” might be reclaimed.

We find this possibility in the Japanese doctrine of Ichinen Sanzen or “3000 Realms in a Single Moment of Life.”

In essence, this Teaching shows how our Life shifts from place to place on a “Map” of Being. One minute we are in a Realm filled with Contentment and Bliss, the next we are catapulted straight into Hell. We are granted reprieve in some diversion and the Wheel turns again.

Despite all of these transitions, each Realm, as mapped out in Buddhist Teaching, contains the others. This includes the Adamantine Core of the Buddha World. Because of this fact, any circumstance may serve as a Vehicle of the Great Way.
What is required is Consciousness and Attunement. How does one begin to cultivate these qualities? If you’re reading these words, your Path has already brought you to such a state. In the vast, sprawling Spaces of this Universe (and many others), the Awakening Mind within yourself is not unlike Nichiren’s metaphor of the one-eyed turtle who rises from the floor of the ocean once every thousand years. The chances of this turtle finding a floating sandalwood log on the surface of the sea and emerging with his head through its hollow is almost impossible. Nichiren likens this improbability to our incarnation as a human being and, through this human life, encountering the Liberation of the Lotus Sutra.

Were this a lottery, one would be a fool to bet in it. And yet it is the winning hand of one’s life. I’m reminded of an experience where I was in a bar, throwing darts. I had been recruited to play on a team, despite a total lack of skill or basic understanding of the game. Our team was down one person and so someone’s boyfriend was called in (fresh out of prison, as I recall).

He stepped up, threw a Hat Trick and when the machine went wild, he asked, with genuine shock:

“What did I do?”

He had to be TOLD that he kicked ass.

This is the Message of the Lotus Sutra. You are already kicking ass. But (to again reference that pugnacious monk, Nichiren), we fail to see our own eyebrows…and we fail to see the Buddha whose Dwelling is within us.

It’s not “Turtles All The Way Down.”

It’s “Turtles All The Way UP.”

And the Turtle is Gamera.

gamera

The Goal of Alchemy was purported to be the Transmutation of Lead into Gold. This might also be translated as Transforming the Shit of our Lives into the Diamond Mind of Bodhicitta, a glorious reminder that our present level of consciousness is, itself, such a rare and magnificent thing in this Multiverse. From this, we may jaunt, jump, volt or simply stumble from one Realm to Another in the twinkling of an eye.

So-! Devadatta. Cause and Effect. Waking up.

It’s happening right now. Nor is there any other place for this to BE.

MINDCRAFT-HEARTCRAFT

temple

The Temple of Space Hoodoo in Minecraft

It was a dark and stormy night. More precisely, it was dark, cold and Space Hoodoo HQ was buried in a blizzard. Power down and internet cut.

What to do?

Build a virtual temple in Minecraft. After all, the laptop still has another two hours left before it goes the way of the hot water heater!

Having been immersed for some time in the world of “Spiritual Gaming,” there is a type of “carry-over” into all gaming exercises. It’s rather akin to applying post-meditational practice. For a period of time, one might endeavor to keep Mindfulness high in an office setting. One’s place of work then changes and the challenges of the “Cubical Labyrinth” shift to a Farmland Forray.

Same Mind, New Projections.

I initially downloaded Minecraft to play with my son. Despite the ease with which every kid in 2nd Grade seems to navigate through this virtual space, I’ve found the learning curve to be a bit challenging.

But it’s all part of the Game…which is to say a Spiritual Engagement with the Game.

My goal was fairly simple. Build up a sacred space to move about and be present within.

This goal was based on understanding that the ingame “Avatar” (the figure or character we identify with and help to move about) is connected to both ourselves from the Game Dimension and to what we might call our “Higher Self” in a more developed Space of Awareness and Function. The Gamespace provides a sort of Connective Field between these two “selves.”

Down the line, a multitude of selves will be linked in communication but to start, we ought simply consider the Avatar as a link between who we are as “players” and who we may YET BECOME through contact with a Being who has BECOME IT.
This is not an automatic process. It requires something of an “agreement” between the Mind and its Field of Projection and Input.

Once this is “agreement” is…well, agreed upon…the virtual space can be worked within to specific effect. If all phenomena reflects a projection of mind upon its funadmental void-nature, then the phenomenal manifestation of ANY gamespace is in the same category as the so-called “external world.” Different “laws” or “rules” apply-but, for our purposes (regarding the gamespace as a field for spiritual exercise), there IS no difference, save for the possibilities we can take advantage of there which may be more difficult in the “organic world.”

In building THE TEMPLE OF SPACE HOODOO, there was attention to detail, simple as it may be. A location was selected and cleared (this functioned as a “cleansing” in the same way we might smudge a home or sprinkle consecrated waters to purify the environment).

Building up the single room Sanctuary was done in the manner of erecting a Shrine, which is to say establishing a Contact Zone. One enters and ascends steps to reach the altarspace in this specific temple. This lifts the self into an awareness that “ordinary thinking” is left behind and a higher dimension has been entered.

In this particular dimensional space, I placed two altars of summoning with books of enchantment side by side. This is because, within this structure, Space Hoodoo is both Kyle & Jedrik as two terminals of the same “battery.”

books

Twin Tomes of Summoning

The altar faces toward the open door of the Temple. This is to allow the projection of the powers summoned into the larger world outside, what we call “ordinary life.”

That which is “summoned” is what we will call Space Buddhaa, the Buddhaa of the Future.

Previously, I had read several passages in the immaculate Sutra of Hui Neng, the Sixth Patriarch of the Dyanna or Zen School.

Therein, Hui Neng speaks of the Mahaprajnaparamita.

This term is actually quite simple. It means the Great (Maha) Wisdom (Prajna) of Enlightenment (Paramita). As one who preached the “Sudden Path,” Hui Neng sees this Profound State as being within every single person.

In fact, he says there is no other Buddha to be found.

This is why Spacebuddhaa says: “Contact your Inner Self…and say ‘Hi’.”

It’s a basic prescription for the Path.

Hui Neng goes on to say 3 remarkable things.

First he tells us:

“A foolish passing thought makes one an ordinary man, while an enlightened second thought makes one a Buddha.”

He repeats this:

“A passing thought that clings to sense-objects is klesa (defilement), while a second thought that frees one from attachment is Bodhi.”

And then he brings down the hammer:

“The Mahaprajnaparamita is the most exalted, the first and the foremost. It neither stays, nor goes, nor comes. By means of it Buddhas of the past, present and the future generations attain Buddhahood.”

son

Want Enlightenment? It’s in your HANDS!  

The Buddhas become Buddhas?

How can this be?

Simply, by dissolving the idea that one is not a Buddha and then knowing that “a Buddha” is “THE Buddha.”

The Dyanna School states that klesas are Bodhi. This is one of the “wild Zen teachings” but it can be misapplied. One can realize the True Nature of one’s Being while out on the town, getting drunk, getting laid. But just because one is doing such things doesn’t mean that one is realizing the True Nature of Being.

Hui Neng says that even meditation, entering the “Void” or doing all those wonderful things that give “merit” are fruitless unless one realizes their True Nature.

What does this have to do with Minecraft?

In this case, the structure I was able to build became a means to stay within this state of awareness.

The first realization one needs is that one is actually BECOMING A BUDDHA when aware of that “enlightened second thought.” You don’t think this. You feel it and you KNOW IT.

I had this experience while reading the text. Even as I absorbed Hui Neng’s words, my mind wandered into thoughts of a negative nature. I found myself being drawn into a deep dislike for a particular person. And then I just stopped. Not by strength of mind or some warm and fuzzy regard for the goodness inherent in all beings. No need for a bumper sticker “Namaste.” I just thought “OK, Kyle, whatever. You’re going to keep on disliking this person for a long time. Get back to it later. Listen to what Hui Neng is saying…”

huineng__great_master_of_buddhismf38e097a832a2c1e20fc

“Fuck Hate. Stay with the Sutra.” -Hui Neng

THIS was detachment. I wasn’t replacing repulsion with attraction. I was just letting it go because I had more important things to be focusing in on at the moment.

I became a Buddha right then and there. But, of course, I DID get back to the “first thought” later. And then I “fell from Grace,” becoming an “ordinary man” with all my klesas and crap.

That is until the “klesas and crap” were hit with the touchstone expressed in the words of Dih Ping Tze as he comments on Hui Leng’s words:

“To use the mind means to let the one mind (i.e. Universal Mind) manifest itself everywhere. When we let our mind dwell on piety or evil, piety or evil manifests itself, but our Essence of Mind (or Primoridal Mind) is thereby obscured. But when our mind dwells on nothing, we realize that all the worlds of the ten quarters are nothing but manifestations of One Mind.”

This simple self-remembering manifests the 10 world model of Buddhism. Each of the ten worlds contain each other. Thus, the “lowest world of Hell” also contains the Buddha World. To shift from world to world can be instantaneous.

It can be…SUDDEN.

My Avatar in Minecraft carries the same Name-Link as it does in Second Life: Hoodoo Pilot.

If both engines are running at the same time, this creates an interesting “Tri-Location” with the 3 of us operating in our respective dimensions. It should be evident that this multiplicity can be vastly extended.

The Minecraft Space, i found, asked the most intentionality on my part. It was critical to not just place an Avatar in a pre-fab space but to actually create the space in the way one would arrange a “Magical Temple.”

Upon completion of the Temple, I walked outside to view it and, instantly, the skies opened and rain began to fall. I was not simply joining with my Avatar as a link to Bodhi…HE was in direct communion with his environment. The rain fell as a cleansing benediction, a magical “housewarming gift” from the One Mind.

I then re-entered the Temple space and heard a hissing sound. Through the windows behind the altar, I could see a massive SPIDER crawling over the sands. For those who have worked with Voudon-Gnosticism, this will be seen as Ti Zaraquin, one of the Arachno-Loa, a Master Mind of Connective Systems on the Inner Plane.

Hook up: Successful.

spider

They said it wasn’t Voudon. I said “You haven’t met this guy!”

At this point, the area was charged up as a functional shrine. I sat in the other room and could see the altarspace with the pages of its twin-books fluttering like butterfly wings. This was the equivalent of chanting, slipping prayer-beads, making prostration. Kyle’s mind flickered between klesas and the “good thought.” But the chant continued in the virtual space, the chant which is one with One Mind (The Buddha), making no distinction between first and second thought.

The computer screen became a Sacred Image, “living legos” becoming the focus of Mind and retained in memory (its evocation ever experienced in “Present Space”). This is the second goal I wished to achieve by building this Temple. To encode it in Mindspace where it would be accessed even after “logging out.”

There is no difference between the Memory and Present Observation. Both evoke the same image into Awareness and the Image, if agreed upon, reflects the Bodhi which is Always in its state of “Thusness.”

It’s Mindcraft.

“May I draw your intention to the fact that only mind is mentioned and not heart in the translation of this sutra. The reason is that the Chinese character meaning heart and mind, is the same. Each time mind essence is referred to it means heart-mind. Keep this in your consciousness as you read the sutra. Learn to think-feel from the depths of your being. Discard sentimentality; feel the real.”

WITTGENSTEINCRAFT

block opsA peaceful stroll through nature…

This evening I played BLOCK OPS for Android.

The opening level was very simple, very easy-which suited me just fine as I’m not, by any means, a great touchscreen gamer. I probably took three hits to the head while trying to get my enemy into the crosshairs.

The simplicity of this shooter, however, had me thinking of Wittgenstein.

I’ll explain:

With a background in “Spiritual Gaming,” I, along with many others who regard Gamespace as a rich field for personal growth, development and help for others, automatically began relating to BLOCK OPS in these terms. Each foe on the battlefield could be “read” in a number of ways. If we see them as obstacles in our life, a run through the game is akin to riding with Ganesh and knocking down walls. If a more meditative stance can be held, each target is a score increasing a desired quality in the area of Personal Power, a prayer bead being slipped along a string. One could even move through this Gamespace on behalf of another person, shooting down (or building up) aspects of their lives as needed.

This semi-automatic Vajra is gonna pop a cap in the ass of your assumptions 

This approach to gaming is certainly not my “invention.” I worked for a long time in the Prosperity Path video games known as “Orbs” for a variety of purposes. These games constitute a type of “practice” which is guided by the “theory” behind how and why they work.

Simplified down to the bone, we have the technology of sympathetic magic at work here. We have before us an image and this image is linked to something not immediately connected to it in a direct cause and effect relationship. Take the image of a Voodoo Doll, for example. It’s just a figurine. But it gets “named” and “dressed up” in such a way to be associated with a person you wish to help or harm. So our little mannequin gets christened Tom, Dick or Harry (or Mr. Thomas Richard Harry) and you drive a nail through its chest. The goal is to give Mr. Harry a heart attack (or maybe just a bad case of heartburn-because as vindictive as you are, you’re not homicidal).

Tom would soon be needing some Pepto

There is a difference between just wishing a rock would fall on Harry’s head and taking this sort of action to actively magnetize an event. But there HAS to be a link whereby such action in the “ritual room” can replicate itself in Harry’s life, yes?

This is where the “theory” end of things empowers action toward a desired end.

First, there must be an “agreement” between the Magician and his Method. And here’s where, playing BLOCK OPS, I recalled the words of Wittgenstein:

“Whether a proposition can turn out true or false after all depends on what I make count as determinants for that proposition.”

Utilizing video games and virtual environments as magical tools and spaces requires an adjustment of determinants whereby the proposition that this is a workable method can be acted upon with effect.

Ludwig Wittgenstein designed and built this house the first time he played Minecraft  

A magician working in the field of Radionics recently commented that machines and procedures do not have to be overly complicated. The whole idea of a “magical machine” is to serve as a “labor saving device.” But some folks simply can’t accept this. As this magician noted, they NEED a lot of complexity to feel like they are actually doing something. In this case, elaborate ritual becomes a tool to give the thinking self enough “stuff to do,” allowing the intuitive self to operate outside this mental block.

However, the more the intuitve self engages with manipulating forces and forms outside of “standard” cause and effect scenarios, the more that personal technique will be sharpened toward establishing transmissive links.

If it were really this easy, one might ask, then we should be able to find a treasure chest in some Xbox game and expect our check to be in the mail. In my experience, it can actually work like this at the beginning. I’ve seen it with Spiritual Gaming and I’ve seen it in ritual and religion. For example, the Nichiren Buddhists extol the chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. It’s the answer to everything. Many in this sect will encourage members to “chant for stuff” (a new job, getting laid, whatever…see the movie “The Last Detail” with Jack Nicholson for a wonderful depiction of this). I was personally told that one should never chant for Enlightenment (Buddha say WHAT???). The logic was that the chant is ITSELF total Enlightenment. Don’t waste time trying to attain what’s right there. Improve your “Life Condition” (however you are thus inclined).

Buddowsky determines Determinants

So, with the genie out of the bottle, newbies go in for their “heart’s desires.” And suddenly STUFF HAPPENS! Bing badda boom. If this isn’t encouragement to keep going, I don’t know what IS!

I was once faced with a severe financial difficulty and utilized a video game to change up the situation. Miracles ensued overnight. I actually had the fleeting thought that I was ready to quit the day job and just keep the udders on the cash cow flowing.

The udders dried up pretty fast.

Why?

Because the dynamics of the situation changed. The mindset which forged the initial link wasn’t sufficient to keep that particular line of communication endlessly open. It’s like taking out a loan that saves your life…but the bank stops doling out the cash at a certain point.

It WORKED-but to keep it working requires a “leveling up” into the next phase of operation.

Genies grant 3 wishes. How about wishing the Genie to tell you of his ORIGINS? Reverse engineer the machine and find out how it works!

Now here come the Siddhis, the magical powers spoken of in Buddhist Sutras. Each Siddhi is linked to a new stage of awareness, what we can call Gnosis (direct knowing) of a larger arena of consciousness. And this is something of a safeguard against the abuse of magical powers. It’s not foolproof as there remain plenty of magi higher up on the food chain who will eat you up and shit you out. But there does seem to be a natural link between unfolding states of consciousness and the powers attributed to them. Certain states of consciousness eradicate what might be regarded as the goals and needs of “black magic.” It’s hard to maintain a selfish agenda when one’s sense of self is dissolving.

With this in mind, it is, in my opinion, ideal to transfer outward gestures of Sadhana (spiritual practice) into the realms of image through virtual reality. This involves a questioning of the nature of “knowing” (and the quote above from Wittgenstein is taken from his notes “On Certainty,” something we tend to readily assume we possess but seldom examine).

WHAT, precisely, are our “determinants” for “knowing?”

And HOW might these change?

For some, this is a scary step. It requires going beyond the “tried and true” assumptions which have kept our physical bodies alive since we first learned that “the stove is hot.” The stove doesn’t exist. But going with this notion, we might conclude that the wall against which it is set doesn’t exist, either. So we try to walk through it and break our (equally non-existent) nose.

All elements of this experience say “You dumb ass, the wall exists and you’re an idiot for trying to be the kid with the spoon in The Matrix!”

Some determinants are hard to shake. So you accept them and they give rise to a proposition (“There’s a fucking WALL THERE!”).

Highly regarded Philosophy Professor scorns Solipsism before Freshman Class 

But this may very well be a case of the proverbial Cart and Horse.

Just because you “know” doesn’t mean such “knowledge” reveals anything true about the situation. The wall against which you just bloodied your face has already moved through space with the revolution of the globe and won’t return to that location for another solar year. And even THEN, the space, itself, will have changed. The event has already passed into non-existence and cannot be demonstrated in and of itself. You remember it-but your remembering is a function of consciousness which can only occur in the present. It is only labeled “in the past.” No one else can remember it FOR YOU. If a “witness” was present, they can only evoke their OWN recollection. An agreement upon the “Objectivity” of the event rests in mutually shared associations communicated through language. But it remains an “agreement,” not a demonstration of objective reality.

crazy

“I’m going crazy-but I can’t be SURE that I am…and it’s driving me CRAZY!”

This descent into epistemology is not meant to be a circuitous game, good for intellectual parlance over two pots of coffee. It is a key to working Gamespace as a Shaman. By regarding sense impressions as ultimately (or immediately) insubstantial (and yet somehow experienced), we come into a space whereby virtual objects may be related to as what we can call “actual objects.” This entry into liminal space begins when we can start to understand “actual objects” as “virtual objects,” when we can enter into a contemplative zone and examine how we perceive, categorize, “know” and relate. We are doing more than just looking at how the “gears of the mind” work. We are getting at the Source from which those gears manifest and into which they dissolve.

This Source we call Space Buddhaa. It is both Transcendent and Immanent. In 2015 we will be publishing the Space Buddhaa Sutra which will be a supportive text for the LAMAL Tarot. This text is a conglomerate fusion of impressions from T’ien T’ai Buddhism, Kenneth Grant’s Mystic Extraterrestrialism, Zen Reactivity, Christic Vudu and Mediumistic Magic. Any complexity of form or system is brought back to several simple tenets whereby the Sutra is intended to engender offspring.

LAM is the LAMA, the Guru Within, the Silence which subsumes “Determinants of Restriction” in a Da’athian Double Vortex. It’s not so esoteric. It’s just a bit outside the typical way humans live and die. Upon accepting the dissolution of form into space, we may feel more inclined to do as the band TOOL admonishes:

Push the Envelope…
…watch it BEND.

This is Hyperdimensional Origami. The Space Buddhaa Sutra is not a “received text” nor is it a “grimoire” or “new revelation.”  It is form of Bushido for the Ronin doubling as a Monk without a Monastery, a visionary voyage intended to create as much as it destroys. A breath in. A breath out.

And the Awareness of the Fire silently burning between.

SPACEBUDDHAA MISSION-PART TWO: “WATCH YOUR PARKING METERS”

walk

“What drives you on?”

This is a question which arose this evening at Space Buddhaa HQ which we are now regarding as Space Buddhaa Mission 1, after the Spanish Missions which served as centers of Power and Proselytizing. Our Mission, however, entails neither one of these things in the common understanding of the words.

Whereas the old Missions sought to subjugate the people to a particular doctrine or allegiance wherein Control might be more firmly established and effectively managed, Space Buddhaa Mission exists to transform its Environment through cooperation in the Self-Liberation of the Inward Star within each Being.

Those who engage in this Art become Space Buddhaa Reps.

We want to be clear about what this means. No one receives a membership card in the mail along with a quarterly newsletter. Organizational affiliation is NOT what Space Buddhaa is about. The term “Rep” does not imply “Representative” (as in “Now YOU can sell our products, promote our shtick etc”) but “Representation.”

plenum gate

“We’re all One.” A warm, fuzzy thought…until we actually EXPERIENCE it!

The Space Buddhaa Rep (or SBR) is a Representation of Space Buddhaa through Self-Directed Form in Time. This link between Space Buddhaa and manifest movement extends beyond even the Name Itself. In fact, this type of Path will readily evoke New Names for THE Consciousness back of which Form and Void dance in Continuum. We find the “Cult of One” preferrable to any group in that it pushes the individual directly into Reality Itself on every level. There is a heavy degree of personal responsibility attendant to this Path and it has been our experience that the average human being will do almost anything to avoid this. This includes embracing the expressed notion of taking personal responsibility. Layer after layer of sophisticated self-deception abounds.

The Great Philosopher Wittgenstein said that the most difficult thing for a human being to do was NOT DECEIVE THEMSELVES. Reading this, we all would like to think “Certainly, that’s not ME! I know what’s going on!”

Everyone wanted to play…until the DOLL wanted to play with THEM! 

Despite this knee-jerk reaction, we all are up against a wall, what can be called “The Next Step.” Again, in our experience, this step tends to be something small and simple, easily enough expressed in words. But it comes with a cost, a type of loss. This evokes pain and discomfort.

Of course, there is plenty of discomfort to be passed out by any School, Church, Teaching and so on. The pain of our lower back, for example, as we sit on a cushion and attempt to meditate. But we also feel good about that pain. We’re suffering toward some “higher end” and so we give ourselves a pat on the back, even if we humbly bow to the saffron robe who seemed unperturbed by two hours in an unflinching lotus posture.

There is a different kind of pain which will keep us in thumbscrews to avoid it.

anything

In the various “Worlds” described by different Buddhist Schools, we encounter the “Asura Realm,” the “Realm of Jealous Gods.” This is one of the most dangerous and insidious zones to occupy as it will readily replicate the forms of Higher Realms to keep the Human Heart trapped. Behind this projection of form are parasitic entities who feed off the high levels of energy generated in this Realm. These all flow upward, as it were, from the “Lower Realms” of Hell, Animality and so forth, “dressed up” in a manner making incisive identifcation extraordinarily difficult, if not impossible. “Humility,” for example, masks Pride which is masking Fear as it produces a refined form of personal aggression. Outward behavior and the Inward State do not match but they are related in a complex schematic.

There is something ELSE which keeps this bit of “wiring” plugged into the wall.

This is the horrifying fear of loss of self-identification on the grid.

chains

“Mind Forg’d Manacles.” In general, they SUCK. They also make the World Go Round. 

Have you ever met anyone who was excommunicated? Kicked out? I’m not talking about the “raised Catholic” kid who never was “really” into the Church and gets an obligatory boot for being a gay atheist. I’m talking about the person who IDENTIFIES, the person who is IN. There is a heavy emotional and psychological agony for this individual. Oftentimes, they will seek after some new alignment like a person cast out of one lifeboat and paddling madly at another. Anything to keep from sinking into those waters. I personally know of MANY who have entered a new group, a new way of self-identifying, and proclaimed that they had, at last, found their “Home.”

It’s not the group here that is important. It’s the notion of HOME. Of having something to provide a context for a lost soul who doesn’t have the self-knowledge and love to operate without it.

Many years ago, I was in correspondence with a fellow occultist who was devising his own Magical Order. He was growing increasingly disenchanted with a certain large organization of which he was a member and looking for something MORE. He sent me his structure of initiation and it was wonderful. Rituals, work, details up the wazoo. But here’s the thing: once a person finally reaches the TOP, he was kicked out. We’re talking knocked to the curb with no chance of ever coming back.

This was brilliant. And, I might add, really not the formula for any kind of self-perpetuating club.

But he GOT IT.

The whole GOAL of Initiatory Systems is to GET TO THE TOP. And WHY? What DRIVES US ON???

Do I really want to be some Sovereign Grand Inspector Inquisitor Commander-in-Chief Royal Knight and Sublime Prince of Too Sexy for my Sash Secrets with five thousand numbers and acronyms signed after my myriad of Magical Names?

Well, Hell to the Yeah, Brother! Especially when there’s titillating Tantra, book contracts and the amazing power to allude with Authority (“Recognize!”).

But I’m not being entirely cynical here.

When I entered the Masonic Temple for my Entered Apprentice Degree, I was more full-on than words could describe. My Heart LONGED FOR the “Secrets of a Master Mason.” And, like a lot of passionate and sincere seekers, I was ready to crawl through hell and back for this imagined “Light” I might receive. I WANTED the hardcore real deal and, as you can guess, I imagined much more than would be delivered. I was ready for a knife to the chest, drawing blood. I expected to be physically buried in a coffin. Push me to all limits. I’ll GIVE IT!

masons

Why?

I wanted MORE.

I would later on feel as if I was standing outside my body when I served my Lodge as Worshipful Master in 2000. I didn’t ever WANT to be a big shot. I wanted…LIGHT.

With this in mind, I feel the hearts of so many who have laid themselves down before others in the hope of connecting with some Divine Truth, something MORE. I know people who have been abused and taken for a ride. They got dumped off on the side of the road when it was all done. Creepy Cons and Crapulous Christs.

Yes, I, also, learned the word “crapulous” from Crowley.

No one is passing out “Truth for Free.”

Except those who DO. And these you’ll find meeting in a Sanctuary overseen by a Janitor. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, read Hermann Hesse’s “Journey to the East.”

Spacebuddhaa.com is the Mission of Kyle and Jedrik in Spacetime. As a website, we will be offering a variety of artwork, objects and items. We stand by what we present. We want everyone who receives a parcel from us to enjoy what they’ve purchased. But we don’t “Sell Soul.” We generate material from what we ARE: a Cult of One. The value of such a Cultus is the freedom to give what we HAVE.

The real Space Buddhaa Reps will soon be calling themselves by other names, tapping a Well of Richness from Within. No one will get booted out of the “Space Buddhaa Ashram”-because it can never exist. Space Buddhaa is not Hinayana, Mahayana or Tantra…or even “Buddhist.” The whole notion of Buddha is that of a Divine Figure who is “awake,” beyond self-deception. This is not a Personage but a flowing Reality of Being which expresses Itself in Form. This is the nature of the “Star-Self” whose Light can never be extinguished.

The Mission serves the Mission.

SPACEBUDDHAA-History & Mission Part One

exemplar 4

In the early 1990’s, Kyle Fite filled a sketchbook with various drawings, studies and notes revolving around comic book and illustration projects. A simple sketch found its way into those pages, entitled “Space Buddha.” It was just a scrawl, a little bit of sci-fi and, truth be told, Kyle didn’t really know much, if anything, about Buddhism. He just liked the idea of some meditation master floating in a space pod.

In 2012, Kyle found this old sketchbook and wrote to a fellow esotericist of a series of letters he had recently sent to an Occult Master:

“The content of those letters addresses Buddhism and my interest in several sections in the Voudon-Gnostic Workbook which deals with Buddhism and the Nemirion Race from the Orion Constellation (which I suggest are related). It’s funny-many many years ago in a sketch book from college, I drew a small image called “Space Buddha” with a seated figure in an egg-shaped pod. At the time, I knew nothing of LAM or Buddhism, really. This is no great drawing but I am finding increasingly that small and seemingly inconsequential things are sometimes more powerfully prescient with greater connectivity than our endeavors to do so consciously.”

Between the drawing and this communication, Kyle would, in fact, take a keen interest in Buddhist Practice, studying and practicing with two different organizations over the years, Tibetan and Japanese.

It would be during the “Japanese Years” that practice would open to a series of telepathic events linking to Aleister Crowley’s Book of the Law. However, Kyle’s previous “Thelemic Self-Identification” was giving way to a new field of experience, indicating an extraterrestrial source of communication. Turning to the works of Kenneth Grant, everything began flowing into the Vortex of LAM. This was followed by 15 months of practicing the LAM SERPENT SADHANA as written by Mr. Michael Staley.

It was also during this general timeframe, that Kyle and several others formulated what might be deemed a “Micro Order” to investigate the ongoing stream of communication and exploration. Short lived, the Order was given it’s name by Kyle who relinquished his own “Motto” to bestow it upon the group. That Name was A-Sh-A and was understood to mean “The Fire which Burns Between Beginnings.”

The striking power of the Double A had already been well-lodged in Kyle’s mind (as with many others) who had read of a certain Secret Order in the works of Crowley.

The fascination with A.’. A.’. grew in lieu with its claims to have existed long before Crowley announced its activity to the World. This is the mystique of History. It was Voltaire who wrote that “History is a Pack of Tricks played by the Dead upon the Living.” Did this particular Occult Order really exist BEFORE Crowley or had he just slapped a bunch of mythic “credentials” on his new gig? This seems to be an old game (“Hello, Fama Fraternitatis!”).

John the Con…Gettin’ It On.

Kyle would buy into many of these games, driven by desire to find the Secret Sanctuary kept clean and safe from this soiled world. Along the way, he would discover a book by a certain “Rosicrucian” who lived and died ere Crowley was born-and in this book was an allusion to secret Order known as…the A.A.”

Research met brick walls and, in the end, it was the Mystique which carried the most power. It wasn’t so much the OBJECT of the Quest but the Inner NEED to set about it.

A.A. lived. We are not speaking of the several groups using this name and carrying Crowley’s work forward. The power of the Letters themselves, which are symbols conveying IDEAS, was of value to adopt as a Magical Name. There was tremendous energy in this and it always evoked the passionate voice of Jaz Coleman as he sung:

“I want to be in a place of beginnings…not endings.”

Kyle would later meet his partner who was, unbeknownst to him, already identifying herself as SPACEBUDDHAA.
All of the above anecdotes are a smattering of the MYRIAD events, people and connections which have colored the Voyage of Hoodoo Pilot (“The Artist formerly known as [insert one of a dozen Magical Names]”).

Knees have been bruised as many times as insight has been gained. The “Spiritual Path” is not a pretty one. After all, it’s a human affair-and people have a marvelous ability to disappoint. However, it was Crowley who observed that a magical diary filled with a record of errors was more valuable than a few furtive moments of “success.” This is Edison with all his light bulb failures. Kyle & Space have been down many dead ends and the maps we want to share are those which cut a Path through the snares. This is no “Word from on High” but rather (as Burroughs wrote) a “Word to the Wise Guy.”

What is happening now involves a double vortex, pouring in and spilling out, calling forth a new Tarot Structure and Sutra. Elements are magnetized, pushed into the Slipstream of Time and set on Fire. Dross and Slag bubble, movement vaporizes folly.

But there is “That Which Remains.” Incandescent Bones of a Form assembling itself in the Fiery Flesh of Time.
SpaceBuddhaa and Hoodoo Pilot were magnetized beyond geographic locale and through karmic fields of tremendous opposition to give birth to the Entity Space Hoodoo.

The Mission Statement of Space Hoodoo is very simple. Ala the Masonic Rite, the Inner Tekton has “long been in darkness and now seeks to be brought to LIGHT.” We are producing material meant to serve this purpose. There is an underlying picture or map upon which the Eternal Hunger of the Being in Time seeks Home. This Being in Time comes crippled into the World, readily sucked into the Tractor Beams projected by those who have understood Spiritual Need in the same way that the Kraft Corporation understands hunger.

It’s been said that one should never try to “wise up the marks.” It is also true that not all “marks” remain so. There is an inward hunger for Truth beyond all stop-points and we believe this Fire Between Beginnings is a Singular Flame burning in the Core of all Consciousness.

On this evening, December 26th, 2014, Space Hoodoo dropped three consecrated Crystals into the middle of Kooteny Lake, British Columbia. This was-and is-a Magical Act, meant to serve as a vital Beacon System for the forth-going Work wherein we wish to serve as a Co-Creative Support System for Tektonia Emergent.

Just as there exists an interconnected crystalline network of energy and communication within the vicinity of our HQ, we have been working around the clock to assemble our material, ranging from writing to artwork to magical objects for use in contacting spaces beyond those ascertained by the senses, each offering connection to a vision wherein the Human and Cosmic may know themselves as One Thing. From this vision we will continue our history and it’s projection forward into all Timezones.
