JACK O’LANTERN’S NOTEBOOK:
I want to formulate, in my own way, the 2 Experiences of Man in our 1 Experience of Life; and then, perhaps, introduce a 3rd Experience that can be sprung & grown from 1 of these 2.
The 2 Experiences are quite discernible:
So, by my web-graph above, it is MATERIAL EXPERIENCE that entails the SENSES: Touch, See, Smell, Taste & Hear.
MATERIAL EXPERIENCE = SENSE EXPERIENCE
TOUCH = SEX
SEE = SUNRISE
SMELL = BURNING LOG
HEAR = MUSIC
TASTE = ICE CREAM
And, by my web-graph above again,
MIND EXPERIENCE entails REALIZATION, which is GROWTH OF MIND & SELF.
It could be an “Aha!” moment, or, it could be a “Damn, I am a bastard.” moment – either or, it is, indubitably, a GROWTH OF MIND & SELF.
Now, although MATERIAL & MIND are separated, of course, it is possible to gain MIND EXPERIENCE from a MATERIAL EXPERIENCE, such as Music. Sensual music with poetic lyrics may scintilla the MIND EXPERIENCE of REALIZATION – but, it is scanty common & holy rare, as music is by nature sensual & pleasurable.
And, as The Wise know well:
Pleasure is Pleasure. The Good is another.
It is certain that MIND (realization) EXPERIENCE is ferociously harder to find than MATERIAL (sensual) EXPERIENCE – as this is a MATERIAL WORLD that is enslaved by the 5 Chains of the Senses; which is mighty unfortunate, because it is the MIND (realization) EXPERIENCE that needs persistence in order to gain the 3rd Experience.
To seek MIND (realization) EXPERIENCE over MATERIAL (sensual) EXPERIENCE, whole-heartedly, will blossom a 3rd Experience that is not born of you until you choose to birth it:
I will coin the gained 3RD EXPERIENCE as SOURCE EXPERIENCE.
A devotee who seeks MIND (realization) EXPERIENCE over MATERIAL (sensual) EXPERIENCE will attain to SOURCE (spiritual) EXPERIENCE.
Within SOURCE EXPERIENCE, there is still the 2 Experiences of MATERIAL & MIND, however, they are no longer separate individuals – but ONE, together.
MATERIAL EXPERIENCE is transmuted into MIND EXPERIENCE by the devotee’s mental-symbiosis of MATERIAL into SYMBOL.
When the devotee burgeons MATERIAL into SYMBOL, the devotee turns ALL THINGS into MIND EXPERIENCE, wherefore, the devotee becomes up to his eyeballs in REALIZATION, which is the GROWTH OF MIND & SELF, which is THE PATH to walk called PERSISTENT EVOLUTION.
These first 2 Experiences, when sought after, lead to different ends:
