Diamond Net of Indra … by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally scheduled to be published 26 March 2015

Dear Ones,

Long ago, the ancients of India knew about axiatonal lines, feeder lines of light, the law that ‘as above, so below,’ the infinitely fine, indestructible pathways of love and light that connect all of us with the far-flung galaxies. Their name for this was ‘the Diamond Net of Indra.’

There are quite a few references to the Diamond Net of Indra online, but most are under copyright. So I have included here a passage from Wikipedia which is Creative Commons, and then put in links to more information I found helpful.

“Indra’s Net,” from Wikipedia

“The metaphor of Indra’s net of jewels plays an essential role in the Chinese Huayan school,[9] where it is used to describe the interpenetration … of microcosmos and macrocosmos.[10] The Huayan text entitled “Calming and Contemplation in the Five Teachings of Huayan” (Huayan wujiao zhiguan 華嚴五教止觀, T1867) attributed to the first Huayan patriarch Dushun (557–640) gives an extended overview of this concept:

“‘The manner in which all dharmas interpenetrate is like an imperial net of celestial jewels extending in all directions infinitely, without limit. … As for the imperial net of heavenly jewels, it is known as Indra’s Net, a net which is made entirely of jewels. Because of the clarity of the jewels, they are all reflected in and enter into each other, ad infinitum. Within each jewel, simultaneously, is reflected the whole net. Ultimately, nothing comes or goes. If we now turn to the southwest, we can pick one particular jewel and examine it closely. This individual jewel can immediately reflect the image of every other jewel.

“‘As is the case with this jewel, this is furthermore the case with all the rest of the jewels–each and every jewel simultaneously and immediately reflects each and every other jewel, ad infinitum. The image of each of these limitless jewels is within one jewel, appearing brilliantly. None of the other jewels interfere with this. When one sits within one jewel, one is simultaneously sitting in all the infinite jewels in all ten directions. How is this so? Because within each jewel are present all jewels. If all jewels are present within each jewel, it is also the case that if you sit in one jewel you sit in all jewels at the same time. The inverse is also understood in the same way. Just as one goes into one jewel and thus enters every other jewel while never leaving this one jewel, so too one enters any jewel while never leaving this particular jewel.[11]

“The Huayan Patriarch Fazang (643–712) used the golden statue of a lion to demonstrate the Huayan vision of interpenetration to empress Wu:[12]

“‘In each of the lion’s eyes, in its ears, limbs, and so forth, down to each and every single hair, there is a golden lion. All the lions embraced by each and every hair simultaneously and instantaneously enter into one single hair. Thus, in each and every hair there are an infinite number of lions… The progression is infinite, like the jewels of Celestial Lord Indra’s Net: a realm-embracing-realm ad infinitum is thus established, and is called the realm of Indra’s Net.[12]‘”

Link: “Inward Bound: Exploring The Fractal Matrix,” by Tai Carmen, 17 June 2014 … https://taicarmen.wordpress.com/tag/matrix-reality/ .. 

In this article, please search the term: Avatamsaka Sutra … and read from there to the paragraph ending, “…The Implicate Order.” (This is eight short paragraphs.)

This passage offers a quotation from the “Avatamsaka Sutra,” and explains that the diamond net of Indra is a good description of a hologram. The passage then speaks of quantum entanglement, of the holographic nature of reality, and of the instantaneousness of communication. Its description of the images in the spider web dew drops, I feel, implies fractal dispersal, a topic I sometimes discuss.

School . a poem by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 2 July 2018

Dear Ones,

Here is a new poem by me …

. . . . .

SCHOOL
A poem by Alice B. Clagett
2 July 2018

What bookish notion schools a bairn
as might a crayfish by a languid bourne?

What did that crawdad ever learn,
that it knew not on finding form?

How, In fact, how shall I take in
all the beings that I am?

How frisk the Veil of by and by
where tens on tens of folks be I ?

— one just borning and the next full grown
— one soft cocooning, in carnation’s womb
— 
one swift careening through an astral gloom
turning, hand outstretched, to angelic lumen

Now regal male decked rough, reared up full wild
Now just past childhood mother cradling her own child

Guerrero here, there carpenter or nun
Pagan, Christian, wondering One
Trying, falling, free, then bound
yearning, spurning, missing, found!

How may we reckon age or race or wealth?
How learn the weight of wisdom of our Self?

How find a mooring in this place, that time
when placeless timeless Hearts toward God incline?

He is the flower of the Soul
His the enthralling, star-spanned role
His is the basket that all lives enspline
He is the teacher, He the rhyme

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

It’s Now, Not Then … by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 16 February 2018

Dear Ones,

Here’s a video with the shortest ever star message in it. But then, it’s just like my ascension team to pack a great deal into just a few words. There’s a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I am of the Stars.

I was just walking around Mishe Mokwa Trail. It’s Spring here. It’s a beautiful Spring day.

And I was just mulling over the past … You know how, sometimes, you contemplate the past, and wonder what you could have done better? You know? I was thinking that.

And my ascension team came in, and they said:

It’s Now. Not then.

And suddenly, everything became clear.

It’s Now. Not then. And so, it’s now … this very minute … that matters. Not any past choice or mistake, or right path. No matter what the past is, right now is what matters. That’s what I think.

And here it is, Spring. A beautiful Spring day, huh? Beautiful!

And wonderful to be alive. Just wonderful!

God bless you all, with the joy of Spring!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Art Photo Series: Airplane in Late Afternoon – Decaptych . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally filmed on 31 January 2018

Dear Ones,

There was not really an accident; this is just an interesting glitch in the video display, indicating to me the whimical nature of reality. A decaptych is a polyptych comprising 10 images.
