Clearly, it is not understood if you understand.
Perfectly. When it is understood, it will be noticed.
Oushi, can you provide a very good example to illustrate what you mean by the term "allowance" relative to causality so we can get back on to topic and maybe better understand what the true meaning is?
See causality as pushing and allowance as allowing. It requires a fundamental change in the way you look at reality.
Causality would be seen as developing from primordial cause, progressively occupying nothingness, having boundaries, source, direction, and strictly determined shape.
You can see allowance as unified field of infinite potentiality, in which phenomena arise through allowance. This potentiality can manifest itself only through liberation, by releasing the potential. This allowance is not two, it does not differ here and there. It's ungraspable and inconceivable. Phenomena arise because they are allowed, not forced to arise.
We can imagine how complete world should look like. I would say if it must be complete, it has to have the potential to become anything. It must be already "full", so to say. To be complete, it must also have the potential to allow, let go. Through liberation phenomena arise, because there is nothing stopping them. The only creative form of action is allowance, liberation. This infinite potentiality liberates itself, and from this liberation reality unfolds.
Now look around and see everything as liberated in this way. See how many thing were kept in bondage by you, because of ideas on how phenomena should or shouldn't be. Liberation is not partial, it does not keep things we consider wrong in bondage.
I am developing it ad hoc here, just for the sake of discussion. It all comes from raw contemplation of the notion of liberation, and all requirements that must be met. This gives understanding that can be spotted later on all over Dharma world.
I like this thread but 'allowance' sounds a bit clumsy to me, since it usually means a bit of spending money. Maybe 'acquiescence'?
Yes, acquiescence sounds good.
Say what you think about me here.
