Life is about the complete experience.

When we rationalize Life, that is; when we live in the mind, we typically “choose” one side of the range of the experience and reject the other.
For example, the experience of being a “sinner” will bring the experience of being a “saint.” We may reject “sinner” but “saint” is only part of the complete experience. Thus, I am a sinner or a saint? That is the question of the conditioned mind. In “reality,” sinner nor saint exist (for some consciousness) as both are part of the total experience. However, sinner and saint exist, they are “realities”  for other type of consciousness.

Likewise,  because we experience “life,” we will experience “death.” For some consciousness, there is no death. Just like the Deities in the “Golden Age,” experienced according to BK philosophy. There is reincarnation for them. For us, that is only a belief for we are not in that consciousness.

For Avyakt7-NG, it does not matter whether there is reincarnation or not. “I” am never the same. Who will reincarnate?  We want to know which “philosophy” is “right or wrong,” believe what is “right,” but that does not matter at all, if there is no consciousness behind it.
There is no single experience  in Life which is “better” than another. It is just a complementary, fleeting experience.
This is an unlimited vision. 

In a limited vision, we are bound by our own “choices.” We select and reject. We fight to keep our selection not seeing that Life has its own movement. Therefore, there is suffering after the enjoyment of what we perceive to be a happy moment, a happy finding, a happy circumstance, etc. All of that is bound to change.
This has been misinterpreted as: ” It is better not to have desires. It is better not to be happy since suffering will come by…” Again, this is a gross misinterpretation of  someone living in logic, reason, the mind. Life does not move under the constraint of logic and reasoning, but our society pretends to do it, although it does not.

Enjoy every experience, for it is unique. 

Remember when “you” were a 6-year-old? This is inaccurate, for “you” (now) were not that one before. All that mattered at that time was to experience Life. The intellectual stuff was added later. That in return gave us a persona, an identity of separation. It was necessary to function in our society, but as we continued on with the conditioning, we forgot our other side, the “no-I,” which does not think about such matters.
We cannot control our lives according to our thoughts. If we try to control, we will never live.
Society requires the “I.” Life does not. When you go to sleep every night, there is no certainty that “you” will wake up. Where are you during that time?
Many have died during their sleep. Our conditioning is that we will wake up again in the safety of our bedroom, but that is just a thought, that we believe in.
To deal with that uncertainty, our minds have created religious beliefs and all sorts of “life insurance” so we could continue on in the afterlife.
Those are tricks to mitigate the anxiety of not being “I,” that is fear of BEING “No-I.”

The paradox is that even though mentally we know that “there is nothing new,” (As per BK belief) experientially, everything is new for us.
That is the bridge that we have to cross and see that what truly matters is what our consciousness perceives, not what the mind is able to understand. Learning happens when we move according to our consciousness. Dishonesty happens when we move according to the “right” belief. We will do and say what we don’t feel.

We have been conditioned in so many ways. That 6-year-old does not know about that conditioning that we may understand now through our own experience.
So, is it “better” to be ignorant then, like a dog?
There is no “better.” Life is only offering us different experiences. A self-realized individual will know both sides of the coin through their own experience, and will see that this coin is “real” and at the same time is not real. The “I” makes the coin. Life does not know about any coins. That is only a human perception.

Coincidences do not exist in Life. That label is a human invention meaning “I don’t know, but I will cover my ignorance with a nice label.”
Life does not depend on me nor on you. It just happens, it is there: Breathing is there, eating, sleeping, etc. Enjoy the experience. Know it. Let it go through “you,” become AWARE of it when it is happening, for otherwise the mind, will “remember” that “I had that experience yesterday,” and the mind will make that unique experience  of “now” into something “old.”

That is why it is said, that a new consciousness is in the experience of “no-mind,” for “no-I” is there. Knowing “I” and “no-I” you had the complete experience. “You” may be self-realized in the consciousness of both complementary experiences.

What do I need to DO to get there? we may ask.
Nothing. You could wait and live in some sort of a vacuum in fear as not to experience Life, for “you” will feel safe, or you could enjoy the ride. That may be “your” choice.   Whatever “your” choice, Enjoy it. That is the key. Know that it is OK to change with Life.

For the common good.
