To gather experience over countless lifetimes.

We Realize who and what we really are, and come to behave like That.

Ignorance of That and associated bad habits result in mistakes and consequential suffering.

The accumulation of experience eventually brings us to realize that we are not separate from others, which forms habitual devotion to the ultimate welfare of all.

Form and emptiness are two sides of the same coin, of a cycle of empty duality like all things. It is ultimate. All things arise from emptiness, into form, and return from form to emptiness simultaneously.

So, by naming and constructing these concepts, form and emptiness, or the goddess and the god, we learn to recognize form and emptiness interchangeable. Imagined as a wheel, one side white and one side black, we learn to spin that wheel so fast that the two colors and two sides blur into One identifiable mass, one circle, on thing, the perfect harmony. These two identifiable things are in fact One. By identifying form and emptiness at the core of experience, we learn to identify the fact that everything is simultaneously both, and that all experience is illusory.

And so, this recognition of the illusion of form and emptiness that is One, also makes clear the illusion of time, of past and future. These too, do not truly exist. There is only the now, the One. Anything identified as having happened in the past, or happening in the future, is present in experience now, and is therefore the One.

The illusion of time stems from the awareness of different experiences supposedly occurring, but none of the memories of the experiences having occurred in the past or the future are real. There is only ever One experience. There are not multiple. Any identified “other” experience is also this experience now. The One experience.

And so this again is why 3rd degree spellcasting is nothing but simply experiencing. That’s all that needs to be done, and that doing is effortless. No spell supposedly cast in the illusory past will ever influence what is now. There is only the One experience of now. So it doesn’t matter what the weather forecast said, because the weather forecast will only have been an illusory memory in the illusory past by the time your experience is that it sure as shit is now raining.
