the Realm of Reality to be objectless,
one finds oneself the source of all things
and one’s own nature to be Awake Awareness.
The five aggregates arise and decay like
the three distorted orientations come and go
like bubbles on water.
The first of these two lines seem to be straight out of the Heart Sutra
The second line is more of what I have been saying all along. You are the source of all things. All you have to do is wake up to it. Methods to be determined.
Third line gets more interesting! The five aggregates are just the pile of stuff we call our selves. So I would guess that the self arises and decays like aimless clouds. Works for me. I see this pretty clearly in myself and others. Actualy had a creepy experience which seeing this part makes me ponder it again.
Three distorted orientations? Past, present, Future came to mind but I don't think so. Maybe, but I don't think so. I think distorted views are of an idealistic view, a Materialistic view, and that of a so called Realistic view (objective/subjective.)
I say "so Called" because I don't think there really is a "Realistic View" no matter how much we can try to rationalize an accurate description of reality, I think we will always end up failing. Besides others have done a much better job than me.
Maybe like that ole hippy guy who said
"Be here now!"
Come and go like bubbles on waterI get impermanence.
I get not real. No substance.... But still pretty to look at while it lasts.
I know that you know all of this already.
I welcome comments, but I may integrate them into the commentary.
I hope that my efforts are helpful in clearing my own delusion as well as that of others,
