The Zen of Christ: transcendence and immanence, emptiness and love: Avalon

excerpted from OM, baby! a pilgrimage to the eternal self, by Jack Haas



            From that all-permeating oneness I came to the Buddha- the Awakened One, the Atman- the impersonal cosmic One. Buddha then took me to the Zen of the Cosmic Christ, which is the great cosmic emptiness filled with Love- ruthless Love. The ruthless Love of oneness. This is the Destroyer and Sustainer, the Devil and Savior, Goddess and God, Hari-Hara, Ardhanarisvara, all opposites dissolved into the singular infinity of the transcendent and immanent Cosmic Christ, wherein all dualities are destroyed in the raging fire of Divine Love.

In the Zen of Christ, the Mother is no longer matter alone, for She has been raised into the limitless, subtle consciousness of eternity. In the Zen of Christ, the Father is no longer consciousness alone, for He has been drawn into the finite, gross matter of time.

The Zen of Christ is the new Avalon which exists parallel to the evolving duality of the human realm. The Zen of Christ is the void married to the actuality, emptiness married to form, eternity united with the ephemeral, and the transcendent merged into the immanent; the two remain two, and yet yin and yang are also one. This is the parallel nature reality, where multiplicity is unity, east is west, and stillness is motion.

The Zen of Christ is impersonal, universal love.

The great, intimate emptiness is the Cosmic Christ, involved in all and beyond all; it is this supreme Christ cosmic love which inhabits the earth and the heavens, the flesh and the spirit, the space and the form, and is thoroughly immanent and inexpressively transcendent.

            That cold fire of the ubiquitous Christ flame is the transfiguring quantum substratum which quickens the separate, mortal soul into the undivided, eternal all.

            This is the penetrative, uncompromising cosmic love-fractal of oneness, ever evolving beyond the limits which define but cannot bind it.

            Here we come to be the great expansion and yet remain involved in the worldly realm, for we are here to be not here, and here. To be in, and of, and not-of. We are the space and the form, the void and the laughter, the absence and the love.

            And so we arrive as an awoken agent from the ardor of the obliterative, multi-dimensional transcendence with yet the greatest challenge laid out before us- to love this life, this paradigm, this earth, this flesh, this realm. Amen.
