ACTIVATING THE LIGHT OF VAJRA OR DIAMOND AWARENESS –

ALTAIR SHYAM

 

Diary of A Yogi

Sunday 15th October 2017

This morning as I sat to meditate the Rainbow Light of Vajrasattva arose within me. As I gave thanks the Light expanded into the Vast Luminous Light of Being.

These are experiences we all have in the One Shared Heart.

I will describe below what we can do together to cultivate them.

What we share here together is designed by us as a practical treasure for us all to keep, because we have all done this before, many times, in many lives.

It needs your input as you will see below.

And if you read to the end I honor your patience with deep humility as wisdom is always from the Shared Heart and nothing is of my doing.

Some days when I sit to meditate I am aware of so many energies in this vast infinite consciousness we call life and “I AM”.

Being open to All dimensions and realities, as you and I are, means touching so many experiences, some of them blissful and some of them challenging.

These are all manifestations of our radiant Self, both the experiences you label “positive” and those you label “negative” and All are opportunities to co-create the world.

Sometimes we face great challenges such as a loss of love, doubting ourselves, depression, losing faith in our path, conflicts with others, loss of health, loss of our possessions, loss of loved ones, perceiving what is happening around us in the world as negative, being attacked and so on.

Let us explore together how to embrace the Vajra or Diamond awareness as a simple path to embracing phenomena and events when they arise without identifying ourselves with them.

So how can we become the Diamond that cuts through illusion?

The first thing is to understand what power we have, at any given moment.

No matter what happens to us, we can smile in forgiveness, fill our minds with compassion, and our hearts with generosity, be courageous in any circumstance, have calm eyes full of love, even if no one knows of your smile, blossoming as a flower, knowing those who love you will see you while you travel through a thousand worlds of experience.

These worlds arise and pass away, just like our selves in those times.

As physicists say when they enter the world of atomic particles, our conceptualized world is an illusion.

It is empty of anything real.

Let us watch as objects arise within our consciousness and learn to transform and empty the mind which is Alchemy or Tantra in its essence, the Light of boundless Awareness.

In the simplest way we see this with other people who are all Buddhas.

If we look into their Hearts, which are just like ours, beyond the thin veil of the mind, we would love everyone totally just as we do ourselves.

Diamond or Vajra awareness is this vision of boundless awareness that encompasses all things that is experienced during the practice of crossing over with spontaneous Presence.

This is the principal method used on the path of Dzogchen, through which the rainbow light body is realised.

So let us look in continuing wisdom at how we can work together simply, in this pure pristine Diamond awareness.

When I was a child of 9 years old I was given a task to create a mural of St Paul’s Cathedral and I applied myself with deep focus. It took three days during which time I barely ate or drank and my mother had to come to the room she had set aside for me and force me to take sustenance and to sleep at appropriate times. I still remember the power of focus and intention that flowed through me. It was like a diamond, sharp, precise, definite. When I finished the mural was like a masterpiece to me, filled with the love and devotion of a small boy.

We all have experiences of truly being in the moment with people, other beings or an activity, being totally One with the world, with love, with the passion of the event.

This is the beginning of Diamond Awareness.

So here is the first exercise.

Choose something you are really passionate about.

It could be anything.

Reading a book or watching a movie, making music or art, meditating or hiking, eating out or making love.

Before you start reading for example, pause for about 3 seconds, be conscious and present and experiment.

Try visualizing yourself as Guan Yin reading for example.

Feel the kind of qualities she would embody rise within you.

Let Her Breath be yours.

Or do the same for Yeshua.

Or Isis.

Keep a diary.

Over the next three days record what happens deep inside you for the same activity. Be aware and fully present in those moments and see if you notice anything different about what happens to you by being fully aware and truly conscious of the flow of energy within you.

Here is another practice.

Consider the following.

As above so below.

We are made in the image of God.

If we devote the same amount of time to developing ‘sangha’ or communities of Light with Deity energies as we do on Facebook then an extraordinary network will manifest.

So every time you sit to go on Facebook gather the community of Light Beings, the deities, your Masters and beings from all worlds, gather them consciously before you begin.

Pause for three seconds, be grateful and fully conscious of their Presence.

Then begin and go online.

As above so below.

What you do here with Presence you will carry with you for all time and timelessness.

And one more.

When you are on the internet and you are about to connect with someone on Facebook, before you connect try bringing to mind for 3 seconds their true name. Honor it, be grateful for the connection across time, and then connect. In the time I was in the Merlin Source group, one’s true name was a source of great liberating power. My own name then was a secret, a spell, a nectar of immortality and has remained that way ever since. For the few that knew it, it was a portal to the Light as it was for me.

If you do not know someone’s true name ask them, and if you do not know your own name ask someone who is skilled in this knowing as they will always help you find it.

Portals to the Light like these are Paths of Intrinsic Radiance such as described in the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and the Egyptian Book of the Dead which are effectively Books of the Most Profound Eastern and Western Alchemy (tantra).

At their Foundation is an understanding of dharmatā, ཆོས་ཉིད་, chö nyi in Tibetan, the All, the essence of things as they are.

Dharmata means the intrinsic nature of everything, the naked unconditioned truth or Night Turning Into Day, the clarity of the empty sky before dawn, a process that is described in both the Tibetan and Egyptian Book of the Dead.

It is a transition experienced in the process of death and it is also a process that can be practiced and experienced as I have discovered, in life.

Here are four simple practices for beginning mastery of dharmata.

1 – The Luminous Landscape of Light – in this phase you take on a body of light.

The flowing vibrant world of sound light and color opens fully to your awareness. Clear radiant and unlimited.

Beginning mastery of this practice means experimenting with the perceptions of colors that arise in the mind as elements and stabilizing them.

You could find that the violet flame arises and work with stabilizing that color throughout your practice.

For myself I have worked deeply with the element of space as blue light and I work with daily in meditation as it arises by going into the experience of the Blue Pearl as gifted to me by Mother Guan Yin.

As always these radiant manifestations of light have no separate existence from the nature of mind.

If you do not work to stabilize this, in the bardo of dharmata it will simply flash by you like a bolt of lightning.

2 – The Union with Deities – in this phase the mandalas of the peaceful and wrathful deities appear.

The luminous landscape of Light dissolves into union in the form of Christs, Krishnas, Buddhas, Divine Mothers.

In my experience when they arise it is blinding and dazzling and humbling, unfolding a vision that can be quite overwhelming.

Pillars of light stream out of you and them joining your heart with theirs.

All deities dissolve into you.

Again your practice aims to stabilize these experiences.

Beginning mastery of this practice means experimenting with the perceptions of deities that arise in the mind as elements and stabilizing them.

You could find that Yeshua or Thoth or Mary Magdalene or Hathor arises and work with stabilizing their heart qualities throughout your practice.

For myself I have worked deeply with Mother Guan Yin in her various forms as Tara, Yeshe Tsogyal, Princess Mandarava, Vajrayogini, Prajnaparamita, Mother May, Mary Magdalene, Isis, Hathor…

3 – Wisdom – in this phase the deities dissolve into wisdom.

The Light in your heart manifests a Vision of Wisdom.

The various aspects of wisdom from all lives and all worlds reveals itself.

The brilliant display of light is the manifestation of all wisdoms.

The all-accomplishing wisdom is perfected at the time of enlightenment, when we become the Christ and the Buddha, the Divine Mother of All.

Beginning mastery of this practice means experimenting with the beauty of wisdom and compassion that arises in the form of interactions with every living being on this beautiful planet and how we deal with the thoughts and emotions that arise in the mind and work to stabilize them.

4 – Spontaneous Presence – all reality presents itself, like an open cloudless sky.

The limitlessness of our being is realized.

Every possibility we have encountered, every wisdom and liberation, confusion and rebirth over countless lives is seen and comprehended.

All past and future lives, knowledge of all realms of existence, all teachings awaken within you.

To recognize this is to self-liberate.

And we have an opportunity to do this, every day, in the simplest of ways, when we encounter another being who may not do things the way we hope or may even act unkindly, we can see their pasts and their futures and understand that all these experiences taking place are the natural radiance of Our Shared Heart and Mind.

This Portal of Spontaneous Presence of Radiant Light as many of us have seen in a near death presence or in deep rituals of alchemy or tantra such as the Kalachakra are the revealing of our own One True Self as Eckhart Tolle experienced.

In the Egyptian Book of the Dead or Emerging Forth Into the Light or Coming Forth Into Day Mystical Spell 17 and the Chapters on Transformation describe the methods of transforming oneself into the various deities such as Ptah and Thoth, Hathor and Sekhmet, just as in the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and all beings, including the divine hawk and the benu bird, and the divine lotus as well as describing the luminous landscape, wisdom and spontaneous presence.

“The Osiris Ani, whose word is truth, saith:- I am the holy lotus that cometh forth from the light which belongeth to the nostrils of Ra, and which belongeth to the head of Hathor. I have made my way, and I seek after him, that is to say, Horus. I am the pure lotus that cometh forth from the field [of Ra].”

Buddha and the Vajra Mudra @ Tumblr

The process and the wisdom and method of Tantra in the East and Alchemy in the West follows the same paths.

When I did the Kalachakra Tantra, I discovered that the practice of the pure light of being also follows a similar path.

I will describe to you what happened.

I was drawn into the mouth of Metatron, passed through his body and into the womb of Guan Yin and melted into a drop that dissolved into emptiness.

The seed syllable HRIH appeared and transformed into the symbol of the pearl I received from Guan Yin, which transformed into Guan Yin who was embraced by Metatron.

Guan Yin was drawn by Metatron into my body and I became Guan Yin.

Light from the Heart of Metatron drew in all male and female Christs, Krishnas, Buddhas and Divine Mothers from all directions, all bodhisattvas, archangels and elders.

Offering and deep gratitude was made to all Great Beings who were now nearby.

The Buddhas and Christs entered into absorption with their respective divine consorts, melting into ambrosia light that entered Metatron through the crown.

This ambrosia light passes through His body and emerged into the womb of the consort Guan Yin, anointing me, and as I emerged from the womb I was struck senseless and mindless by the pure indescribable Light of Being.

I remained in that state for three days, dying to every moment, in a state of indescribable bliss.

Yeshua and St Paul describe this dying daily where every portal is a portal of ‘death’ meaning the death of the false self.

  1. John 3:30 He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
  2. Galatians 2:20-21 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
  3. Corinthians 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily
  1. Ephesians 4:22-24 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put  off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

This same New Self, the True Self or Diamond or Vajra awareness is experienced by Padmasambhava as the natural liberation of mindfulness from the straight central channel also described in Kriya by Babaji and Yogananda.

Padmasambhava by Carol Herzer

In the center of your body imagine a straight erect central channel like a hollow tube of Light.

At the lower end below the navel is a white radiant luminous Light which is the pure nature of awareness.

In the space above your head imagine your spiritual mentor, whoever that may be, Yeshua or Guan Yin or another.

Using the sacred breath draw the white radiance upwards while making the sound HAU like the English word “awe” with all your inner power.

Some disciplines use the word KA and others OM or HONG or AH.

The white radiance of your inner being will automatically be drawn up the central channel.

When it reaches the embrace of your spiritual mentor imagine it descending down again until it comes to rest at the base of the spine using the sound EEE.

Some disciplines use the same word ascending and descending.

These experiences I describe above are what I personally have explored with different masters and is the consciousness of someone who is a diamond cutting through illusion.

All the great saints and sages, Masters, gurus and angels speak in the same One Heart.

Pray single-mindedly with faith and devotion to the enlightened form of the Christs and Buddhas within you.

Obtain the empowerment of immortality through the sacred breath you breathe.

Liberate from birth and death through mindful heartful practice, breathing, breathing, walking, walking.

Make enlightened connections in this world and all worlds as we have shared above.

You will become endowed with the noble enlightened qualities of the Christs and Buddhas.

You will be led to the realm of the Pure Light of Being.

You will mingle indivisibly in the space of the Great Mother.

We carry the sacred flame of enlightenment, the miracle of the inner fire of bliss, within us.

Let it shine.

This is the mantra of the Heart Sutra, the Prajnaparamita Sutra, the Sutra of the Blessed Mother.
