The Shivers Of Logic

The mind made to work, ever since the awakening of the intellect, under the strictest discipline of logical dualism, refuses to shake off its imaginary cangue. It has never occurred to us that it is possible for us to escape this self-imposed intellectual limitation; Indeed, unless we break through the antithesis of “yes” and “no” we can never hope to live a real life of freedom.

And the soul has always been crying for it, forgetting that it is not after all so very difficult to reach a higher form of affirmation, where no contradicting distinctions obtain between negation and assertion.

To speak in the abstract, the idea is to reach a higher affirmation than the logical antithesis of assertion and denial. Ordinarily, we dare not go beyond an antithesis just because we imagine we cannot. Logic has so intimidated us that we think and shiver whenever its name is mentioned.

D. T. Suzuki, Professor of Buddhist Philosophy at Otani University was born in Japan in 1901. Suzuki influenced the work of Thomas Merton, Aldous Huxley, and other thinkers who pushed the envelope of logic to its breaking point within them. Logic, according to D.T. is a belief worthy of dissection and exposure.

Logic is the study of the principles of valid demonstration and inference. It is what Webster calls correct reasoning or valid deduction or induction. Valid usually means something binding and in compliance with laws. We believe in logic. It is one of the building blocks for our physical energy personality’s belief system.

But our inner energy personality does not recognize logic or time. Our inner personality expands in a stream of connected non-physical consciousness where form is unnecessary. Since time is the duration of objects, there’s no need for time in some other dimensions of consciousness.

Consciousness or the action of energy creates experiences in more than one reality at a time. Obviously, Seth and other non-physical energy personalities don’t exist in the logic we believe. That belief blocked part of our multidimensional personality from physically experiencing experiences that do not conform to our version of logic. We gave out inner personality or soul to the Kings of Separatism, religions.

Kant claimed logic is really the science of judgment. Judgment rules in a world of separation. Professor Suzuki used Zen to connect to his inner energy personality. But he didn’t call it that. He called it a higher affirmation of his soul. He reaffirmed his connection with that part of his multidimensional consciousness through Buddhism.

Suzuki knew his inner personality or soul could give him the guidance to reach his higher affirmation without the need for logic. Our inner personality expands as we expand in awareness. And as our physical and inner energy personalities vibrate in harmonic awareness, a psychological union occurs.

In that flow of psychological consciousness, we create experiences that bring Seth and other non-physical energy personalities into our dimension of reality. We create them because they are aspects of our consciousness. Our inner energy personality has many aspects to its energy.

At some point in physical time, our awareness will expand enough to accept the fact we are non-physical energy personalities experiencing a physical reality that gives us each the opportunity to create an individual reality that helps our inner personality expand in other dimensions of consciousness.

The shivers of logic fade when we realize we create our belief about logic. And we constantly change that belief as we become more aware of the non-physical energy personality that is us.
