poverty of dimensions

poverty of dimensions

All of us we have endless suffering, pain. We endlessly gather more and more cause of suffering. The root of this suffering, root of all this pain is dualistic mind. With this dualistic, ignorant mind we only end up seeing one dimension. Seeing one dimension of all this infinite dimension creates hope, creates fear. So by seeing single dimension or dualistic dimension also pulls ourselves further from this infinite dimension of everything. So in other words we make ourselves go through this poverty of dimensions. We just cannot use anything as everything. We are stuck with just a single dimension. And not only stuck with a single dimension. This single dimension that we are so attached to then creates lots of references. Dualistic references. And this kind of limited dualistic references will then create more suffering to oneself and many others. So this is why in the – actually all the teachings of the Buddha is to, how should i put it, is to open the multidimension, even so the dimension, the word dimension, is used mainly in the Tantra. Shravakayana, Mahayana, all of that, of course the Vajrayana, it is all to broaden so to speak our vision, our attitudes towards the phenomena.
