The Mystical Whole

Lao Tzu wrote in Tao Te Ching:

He who knows does not speak.
He who speaks does not know.
Block all the passages!
Shut all the doors!
Blunt all edges!
Untie all tangles!
Harmonize all lights!
Unite the world into one whole!
This is called the Mystical Whole,
Which you cannot court after nor shun,
Benefit nor harm, honour nor humble.
Therefore, it is the Highest of the world.

Similarly, Ramana Maharshi wrote to his mother, as 1898 turned into 1899, when she tried to persuade him to return home from Arunachala, “What is not meant to happen will not happen, however much you wish it. What is meant to happen will happen, no matter what you do to prevent it. This is certain. Therefore the best path is to remain silent.”

What these wise words mean is that mystical, depth psychology is the primary science, as the basis for all sciences and humanities, not physics, which mistakenly regards the material universe of mass, space, and time as ultimate reality. In other words, the global village is ungovernable unless we understand ourselves, knowing what is causing scientists and technologists to drive the pace of scientific discovery and technological development at unprecedented exponential rates of evolutionary change.

Such profound self-understanding arises by revealing Wholeness at the Omega Point of evolution by awakening to Total Revolution—as David Bohm, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Vimala Thakar advocated. However, while mapping the Cosmic Psyche with Self-reflective Intelligence carries us into the eschatological Age of Light, such a liberating, healing practice cannot prevent the near-term extinction of our species.

Most significantly, we cannot compromise with the irrefutable, universal truth, which states Wholeness is the union of all opposites. There is thus no longer any purpose in attempting to communicate the solution to the ultimate problem of human learning to a deeply fragmented and confused society, stuck in its ways. For transcultural, transdisciplinary Panosophy—as the elusive Theory of Everything—has emerged from an apocalyptic epiphany in the spring of 1980, which is unlikely ever to be repeated.

With 2020 turning into 2021, this is thus an opportune moment to rest in Peace, Silence, and Stillness in the Presence of the Divine in the Eternal Now, knowing that in the Mystical Whole life and death are inseparable aspects of Nonduality, as the Immortal Ground of Being. I know of no other way of consciously resolving the great existential crisis facing humanity today.
