Sunday 25th April – 2pm UK time
Pathways to Transcendence.
a zoom talk by Gary Kidgell
Humanity resides within a dualistic creation comprised of spirit and matter. These do not exist and function as independent realities, but rather as the two aspects of the One Reality — Parabrahm, the field of Absolute Consciousness. The mystery of consciousness cannot be expressed in words, it is beyond name and form. To understand the mystery of consciousness the awareness of the aspirant must be elevated to the transcendent level of being which gives rise to consciousness itself: the realm of Sat referred to in H.P. Blavatsky’s The Voice of Silence.
In this presentation Gary will adopt a comparative approach, in outlining various practices and techniques that humanity has developed towards crossing to the metaphorical ‘other shore’ of Mahayana Buddhism, or being ‘without the gunas’ as Krishna advises Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. Blavatsky describes the sacred symbolic language of Senzar. C.G. Jung demonstrates that symbols are representations of archetypes or ‘divine ideas’ residing with the collective unconscious. Symbols represent a bridge between the lower, intellectual mind and the higher, abstract mind. Human consciousness may be elevated beyond to opposites of manifestation to the level of transcendent truth on the ‘wings of symbols.’
