Richard Moss, Letters from a Living Dead Man, God, nirvana, and existence

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                 

           

“God is never an explanation.

It is the most profound and utter declaration of ‘I don’t know’

 and yet in this unknowing lies the I AM.”

Richard Moss

 

 

This realization is further described in a short anecdote by the anonymous spirit in Letters from a Living Dead Man. He relates: “There is a mystery here which I cannot fathom. ...One night I seemed to be reclining on a moonbeam, which means that the poet which dwells in all men was awake in me. I seemed to be reclining upon a moonbeam, and ecstasy filled my heart. For the moment I had escaped the clutches of Time, and was living in that etheric quietude which is merely the activity of rapture raised to the last degree. I must have been enjoying a foretaste of that paradoxical state which the wise ones of the East call Nirvana. ...I was vividly conscious of the moonbeam and of myself, and in myself seemed to be everything else in the universe. It was the nearest I ever came to a realization of that supreme declaration, 'I am' ...[Though] I marvelled not, because the state of my consciousness was marvel.”

             We are all ‘I’s’. Everything is I, Everything is marvel, and mystery. What we claim to know as separate things, or even separate Mysteries, are unseparate parts of the Whole. So we can only become contiguous with the One Mystery by recognizing the Mystery within each one of us, which we are, which we call ‘I’.

            To become exasperated by the implausibility of our own existence, is to become the implausibility of existence. Which is to say, it is to become existence.
