Contractio ergo sum. ‘I contract therefore I am.’ And
‘I am contraction, therefore I am.’ Or ‘Contraction is the nature of my existence.’ Or ‘I am self-contraction itself.’
Adi Da Samraj
this we are free - like a circle drawn on a piece of paper that suddenly
knows that it is everything outside itself as well as everything that it
contains and encloses within its circumference. A circle that knows its own
circumference not only as the ‘outer’ circumference of all the space within
it, but as an inner circumference of all the unbounded space surrounding it.
A circle or sphere of awareness that knows its own ‘self’ as one self-circumscription,
self-contraction, or self-enclosure of an unbounded field of
awareness. A circle or sphere that knows that its own inwardness too, is
not something bounded by its outer circumference – but is like a wormhole
that links it to the inwardness of every other circle in the space
around it. A wormhole that leads into and radiates out of the
inwardness of every other circular “enclosure” or “unit” of consciousness.
Knowing all this in a bodily way – feeling it – means
knowing that each of us is a Black Hole and a White Sun – a ‘Black Sun’
shining with the hidden light of countless souls.
