Bodhisattva / Tulku: So you are a Tulku, a Bodhisattva, now what?

 

Understand that you have come to bring the great ocean of peace to this realm of disharmony and unpeace. Your societal role is not as important as your expansive Buddha Nature. You must not get caught in identifying yourself as a role within society, nor as a specific individual within the paradigm. Your Buddha Nature is an ocean of peace which expands through and beyond this realm. It is the ocean of pristine, substantial awareness. There are many traps and pitfalls in this world which will cause you to fall from the great space into a limited role. There are many forces which will try to kill your Buddha Nature. Your Buddha Nature is killed when you are no longer aware of your unbound, expansive nature. And it is this very limitless expansion which will help transform this realm, by bathing it in the ocean of peace which you truly are. There are also energies which do not want this realm to transform, and therefore do not want you to maintain your expansive Buddha Nature. Remember that. Negative forces will attempt to prevent your third-eye and crown chakra from opening, because these chakras are potent vibrational centers. Therefore, return to stillness often. Be certain to attain the great non-reacting, identitiless Self. That is: learn to energetically detach from all ambition and outcome, and therefore allow your 'I' to dissolve into the limitless ocean of peace, which does not react to outward events. Within this ocean the entire paradigm will exist, and you will have helped to elevate it. Historical methods and practices are not essential, for your consciousness inherently knows that it is limitless and unbound. Just be. In stillness there is power. Don't get caught in 'doing', or trying to succeed unnecessarily at societal roles. You are already a tulku, a bodhisattva. Open yourself up to assistance from the great discarnate spirits which are there to assist. Be willing to transform inwardly, so as to transform energies outwardly. Let your unbound awareness expand naturally through and beyond this realm. Be the non-reacting ocean of peace which you are.

 

But then there's this:

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations... Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."

Buddha

 

"There is no authority. ...You are all alone in this mad, brutal world."

J. Krishnamurti
