Heroes


Ok I admit it I watch heroes, if you too watched S3E24 "I am Syler" and the season finale S3E25 "An invisible thread", you may have noticed Truth being spoken at the end of each show.
In I am Syler Saresh narrates.
"For every being cursed with self awareness there remains the unanswerable question, Who am I?
We struggle to find meaningful connections to one another, we are the caring friend, the loving father, the doting mother, the protected child, we fight and we love in the hope that somehow together we can understand our significance in the universe, but in the end no one can share our burden.
Each of us alone must answer the question Who AM I?
What does it mean to be alive?
And in the vast infinity of time how do I matter?"

The audience is directed to self inquiry, the most potent self realization method.

In the season finale we get a bit more wisdom.

"There are nearly seven billion people on this planet.
Each one, unique, different.
What are the chances of that? And why?
Is it simply biology,
Physiology that determines this diversity?
A collection of thoughts, memories,
Experiences that carve out our own special place?
Or is it something more than this?
Perhaps there's a master plan that drives the randomness of creation.
Something unknowable that dwells in the soul,
And presents each one of us with a unique set of challenges
That will help us discover who we really are".

"We are all connected, joined together by an invisible thread, infinite in its potential and fragile in its design. Yet while connected we are also merely individuals, empty vessels to be filled with infinite possibilities. An assortment of thoughts, beliefs, a collection of disjointed memories and experiences."
Nathan says, "Its a new beginning mom"
Saresh again "Can I be me without these? Can you be you?"
"And if this invisible thread that holds us together were to sever, to cease, what then?
What would become of millions of lone disconnected souls?
Therein lies the great quest of our lives, to find, to connect, to hold on.
For when our hearts our pure and our thoughts in line we are all truly one. Capable of repairing our fragile world and creating a universe of infinite possibilities."

Look at the series logo above, the eye of providence, the all seeing eye, the one eye we all ultimately look out from, the point of view is shifting as I mentioned before from dualistic to non-dualistic, the ultimate point of view, that of the Absolute.

"Imagine a delicate electronic gossamer web encompassing the Earth.

Luminous, the web's fabric undulates in a psychedelic array.

Each connection point a shimmering jewel of information.

Each jewel a access point for a unique human soul."

Indra's Jeweled Net
Tu-Shun (557-640 B.C.E.)

At each juncture there lies a jewel
each jewel reflects all the other jewels in this cosmic matrix.
Every jewel represents an individual life form, atom, cell or unit of consciousness.
Each jewel, in turn, is
intrinsically and intimately connected to all the others;
Thus, a change in one gem is reflected in all the others.

Nice...

Tu-Shun is one of my "Heros" ;)

"In the Heaven of Indra, there is said to be a network of pearls, so arranged that if you look at one you see all the others reflected in it. In the same way each object in the world is not merely itself but involves every other object and in fact IS everything else. In every particle of dust, there are present Buddhas without number."

- Sir Charles Eliot
