THE NATURE OF MYO

 

 

As Nichiren Daishoni says in On Attaining Buddhahood

 

What then does myo signify? It is simply the mysterious nature of our lives from moment to moment, which the mind cannot comprehend nor words express.---

Life is indeed an elusive reality that transcends both the words and concepts of existence and nonexistence. It is neither existence nor nonexistence, yet exhibits the qualities of both. It is the mystic entity of the Middle Way that is the reality of all things. Myo is the name given to the mystic nature of life, and ho to its manifestations.---

Renge, the lotus flower, symbolizes the wonder of this Law. Once you realize that your own life is the Mystic Law, you will realize that so are the lives of all others. That realization is the mystic kyo, or sutra.

 

In The Gift of Rice Nichiren Daishonin says

 

 

APPROACHES TO CONSCIOUSNESS

 

Myo encompasses all phenomena. Myo represents the ninth Consciousness -The unchanging reality which reigns over all life`s phenomena. It represents the fusion between mind and body and all living beings and the Universe. It is the place of the Full potential Self , the point of fusion between objective and subjective, life and death , reason and intuition, particle and wave Quantum and physics. If the scenes in the mirror are the ever changing nature of our phenomenal lives and the potential is the evocation of these images , then Myo is the mirror itself the integration of the three truths and the middle Way. 

 

 

The book The Field by liz McTaggart describes the work of frontier scientists across the globe whose revolutionary findings challenged everything we have believed about how the world works. Modern science portrays the human being as a mechanism largely powered by chemicals and genetic coding. According to this view, the brain is a discrete organ and the home of consciousness. Consciousness itself is also largely driven by chemistry - the communication of cells and the coding of DNA. The mind of man is isolated from his body and he, in turn, is isolated from his environment.According to this view, we aren't much more than animated machines. Modern science has reduced us to our lowest common denominator with a desolate vision of a genetic accident powered by chemicals, divided from its world.

A new way of thinking

 

 

Deepak Chopra says that we are entrained by consensual reality . However without these preconceptions pure awareness (-the profound attribute of Sages , Rishis and Buddhas ) . is fused with the fundamental process of the Universe which is same mind stuff which fills our heads. So--He sees Human beings as being able to create reality like Gods making the unmanifest Manifest.

 

Ken Wilbur as an Integral Trans personal psychologist sees the human domain of consciousness as being intimately tied to 4 quadrants based on Interior individual, interior collective ( Left Quadrant ) and Exterior Individual , exterior collective ( Right Quadrant)
