Deus non alligatur. God is not bound. Nibbanam paramam sukham. Unbinding is the Highest Happiness. The Heart is Divinity. God is the primal radiance of Divinity. Nature is the primal manifestation of Divinity. The Buddha is the primal realization of Divinity. La ilaha il Allah. Allah is Complete Wholeness.

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

A Christmas meditation:
The Christian message of the Good News of Salvation is central. Jesus Christ tells us, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6).
In Jivanta, Jesus Christ is a particular manifestation of the Buddha. The "Way" is the Heart; the "Truth" is the Beloved; and the "Life" is the Jivanta. Each Divine Person in this Quarternity is as equally Divine as the other three Persons; and thus Jesus, as the Buddha, could speak truthfully as being equally the Heart, the Beloved, and the Jivanta.

To say that no one comes to the Father except through Jesus, refers to the spiritual progression, from Jivanta to the Heart. Each portion of Jivanta, each atma, each soul, can come to the Father, to the Beloved, only by realizing Buddhahood, and the only way to realize Buddhahood is to follow the Buddha. The Buddha is the gateway to the Beloved. And the Beloved is the gateway to the Heart.
