A meditation sets the stage for an inner alignment to Buddha nature through Christ consciousness. In truth, all holy days and heightened vibrational cycles are celebrating emptiness-limitlessness and its power. With Wesak and the Taurus full moon we bow into the experience of limitlessness through the demonstrations of Christ consciousness and Buddha nature.
Experience creates the ground: the very stability of our awareness. Experience anchors a knowing – possible only in the way that experience can, making it fixed in our awareness. This establishes new frames of reference, contexts of understanding, and reinforces habitual modes of responding. Yet at the same time, experience is empty. This is expressed through the variety of personal interpretations of any one experience. According to our mood (or even the atmospheric pressure system outside), a common action by a person, pet, or pot on the stove will evoke a unique response from us. Experience is empty.
Taurus represents this with its glyph: an empty circle topped by an empty bowl. Both are empty in appearance only. They are also full. But full or empty, the context and appearance of fullness is dependent upon the experience of the perceiver. Thus in fact, Taurus, experience, and relation are empty – profoundly, magically, and powerfully so. This could describe a level of Buddha nature.
Compassion is too. Compassion has no agenda other than itself. Compassion only exists in response, when rendered purely it is always perfect, and always unique. Christ consciousness is a word for this emptiness of compassion. Christ consciousness and Buddha nature are the celebration at Wesak. As such, we celebrate human nature through that which they lived as examples, and the undiscovered emptiness within each human being.
