Insights by Huang Po



There's never been a single thing.
So where's defiling dust to cling?
If you can reach the heart of this,
Why talk of transcendental bliss?
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD) Chinese Chan master of Zen Buddhism, John Blofeld, The Zen Teachings of Huang Po, S. 78, Grove Press, 1958


So just discard all you have acquired as being no better than a bed spread for you when you were sick. Only when you have abandoned all perceptions, there being nothing objective to perceive, only when phenomena obstruct you no longer; only when you have rid yourself of the whole gamut of dualistic concepts [...] will you at last earn the title of Transcendental Buddha.
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD), John Blofeld, The Zen Teachings of Huang Po, S. 58, Grove Press, 1958


All such dualistic concepts as 'ignorant' and 'Enlightened', 'pure' and 'impure', are obstructions. It is because your minds are hindered by them that the Wheel of the Law must be turned. Just as apes spend their time throwing things away and picking them up again unceasingly, so it is with you and your learning. All you need is to give up your 'learning', your 'ignorant' and 'Enlightened' 'pure' and 'impure', 'great' and 'little', your 'attachment' and 'activity'. Such things are mere conveniences, mere ornaments within the One Mind.
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD), The Zen Teachings, S. 70


As soon as the mouth is opened, evils spring forth. People either neglect the root and speak of the branches, or neglect the reality of the 'illusory' world and speak only of Enlightenment. Or else they chatter of cosmic activities leading to transformations, while neglecting the Substance from which they spring – indeed, there is never any profit in discussion.
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD), John Blofeld, The Zen Teachings of Huang Po, S. 85, Grove Press, 1958


In their anxiety to seek Enlightenment on the one hand and to escape from the passions and ignorance of corporeal existence on the other, they conceive of an Enlightened Buddha and unenlightened sentient beings as separate entities. Continued indulgence in such dualistic concepts as these will lead to your rebirth among the six orders of beings, life after life, aeon upon aeon, forever and forever! And why is it thus? Because of falsifying the doctrine that the original source of the Buddhas is that self-existent Nature. Let met assure you again that the Buddha dwells not in light, nor sentient beings in darkness, for the Truth allows no such distinctions. The Buddha is not mighty, nor sentient beings feeble, for the Truth allows no such distinctions. The Buddha is not Enlightened, nor sentient beings ignorant, for the Truth allows no such distinctions. It is all because you take it upon yourself to talk of explaining Zen!
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD), John Blofeld, The Zen Teachings of Huang Po, S. 105, Grove Press, 1958


When thoughts arise, then do all things arise. When thoughts vanish, then do all things vanish.
Huangbo Xiyun [LoC 960] (770-850 AD), The Zen Teachings, S. 80, cited in: AZ Quotes




Huang Po [Huangbo Xiyun] was a very highly evolved Zen Buddhistic teacher. At the time of publishing his teachings he calibrated at LoC 850.1 Later Huang Po transcended the void but did not teach or speak anymore. At the time of his death he had reached LoC 960.2


Wan Ling records this anecdote about him:

Some years after Huang Po's ordination, while journeying to Mount T'ien T'ai, he met a monk with whom he soon became aquainted. They continued their journey together. Finding the way barred by a mountain stream in flood the Master lent upon his staff and halted, at which his friend entreated him to proceed.
"No. You go first," said Huang-Po.
So the former floated his big straw rain-hat on the torrent and easily made his way to the other side.
"I," sighed the Master, "have allowed such a fellow to accompany me! I ought to have slain him with a blow of my staff!"


The sly monk had used supranatural powers in order to cross the stream like a "show off". Huang Po was aware that such powers are only to be regarded as by-products. As a Zen Master, Huang Po used harsh language to make a point.


Hawkins advises to never view miraculous gifts, so-called siddhi, as personal and to let them unfold only, when they emerge beyond one's control.

  • In the 700s, you become a mystic. Instead of speaking only from ecclesiastical doctrine, you now speak from inner knowingness. A knowingness begins to spring forth from within and constitutes the so-called Purusha. You no longer speak from personhood, but from awareness. The teacher doesn't even have any interest in himself personally. […]
    These people – their public lives are a reflection of that which they have become.

Existence requires no cause, and to think as much is to create a fallacy of logic. […]
Looking for a primary cause is an artifact of mentation that arises along with the concepts of time and space.

  • While the overall consciousness level of mankind is at 204 (November 2007), if the top one thousand individuals in the world were removed, the level would be at only 198. Compassion for the less evolved motivates society's endless efforts at correc-
    tion and providing supplementary assistance to the evolutionarily less fortunate.
    Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 269, 2008


The LORD said, "If at Sodom I find 50 righteous people in the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake."
Genesis 18, 26 (OT)


Jesus said, "I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as
a single one."
The Gospel of Thomas [LoC 660], verse 23, translated by Thomas O. Lambdin, The Gnostic Society Library,
The Nag Hammadi Library, revised edition Harper Collins, San Francisco, 1990


The pure unadulterated love of one person can nullify the hatred of millions.

  • There are currently approximately twenty-two sages on the planet who calibrate at 700 or above. Of these, there are twenty at 800 or more, of whom there are ten at or over 900, and one sage is over 990. These figures have changed since 1995 when Power versus Force was published. (Only ten were over 700.) The Eye of the I, S. 38, 2001


  • At present time, there are six sages (anonymous) on the planet who calibrate at 600 or over. Of these, three are between 600-700, one between 700-800, one between 800-900, and one between 900-1,000. Truth vs. Falsehood, S. 24, 2005


  • Hawkins further believes he has the ability to calibrate the number of enlightened beings on the planet.
    In 2002, he calibrated that there were thirty-three beings above level 600.9 13
    In 2005, the number dropped to six.10 14
    By 2007, only three enlightened beings remained.11 15
    Truly, Hawkins sees himself as a rare manifestation – a gift – to humankind.2 16

Effect of outstanding God sent individuals on the general public

Reflection nebula associated with the
bright star Rigel in the constellation Orion

Depending on the general attractor field a human being exuding a highly deve-
loped or higher level of consciousness may live in differing scenarios and out-
comes. Given that outstanding individuals choose a direct or an indirect ap-
proach to convey true and immanently confronting contents within respective
context levels:

  1. A slowly augmenting transformation (flipping as a result of the butterfly effect) will be set in motion. [*]
  2. Scandalizing will be triggered, which
  3. may eventually end in silencing / ousting / banishing / imprisoning or
  4. physical death / killing of the messenger.


An actual example for [*] is British soundhealer Jill Purce, the wife of British biologist Rupert Sheldrake [LoC 460]. As a teacher of overtone singing she inspires groups of singers to re-enchant a spirit filled field. In her newsletter in January 2007 she informed:

"I am delighted after spending 35 years in introducing people to their voices in group chant situations, to find the government is finally encouraging this in schools – sometimes it takes a long time to get heard!"


Note: The general LoC of mankind was at 204 [status end 2007-2008].

  • 1) 2) 3) 4) Buddha [LoC 1000], the enlightened one, died on having been served rotten (poisoned) meat.
    The general LoC of mankind was at 90 in 600 B.C..


  • 1) 2) 3) 4) Jesus Christ [LoC 1000], the savior, who mainly tended to the indirect way of teaching truth as in speaking in parables, drew public aggravation, was seen as to be a blasphemer. The mob wanted to see him nailed to the cross whereas judge Pilate did not find him guilty. He said: Ecce homo! [Behold the man!]
    The general LoC of mankind was then at 100+.


  • 1) 2) 3) 4) The apostle St Simon Peter [LoC 9106, who had renounced Jesus three times out of fear of being killed
    as well, went on sharing Jesus' teachings as a missionary and died the death of a martyr in Rome later in his life.
    The general LoC of mankind was then at around 100+.


  • 1) 2) 3) Bodhidharma [LoC 795] 6 survived several trials of his two older brothers to kill him due to his good karma, migrated from india to china and bore it serenely and silently: the anger of a self indulgent emperor, who'd thrown him out, and the violence of his disciple and later successor, who was after him.
    The general LoC of mankind then was possibly at around 120+.


  • 1) 2) 3) 4) The Indian Hindu lawyer, politician, liberator of nonviolent resistance and reformer Mahatma Gandhi [LoC 760] (1869-1948) outplayed the British Empire [LoC 180], which after colonialism [LoC 70] was abolished worldwide.
    The general LoC of mankind was at 185 then.


  • 1) 2) 3) The German mystic Meister Eckhart [LoC 705] died a natural death at around age 80 – shortly before he would have undergone an inquisition process procured by the leaders of the Catholic Church. He was reproached
    to be a misguided theist, who was unwilling to renounce.
    The general LoC of mankind was possibly below 180 then.


  • 1) 2) 3) 4) The inspiring faith of Saint Christopher [LoC 550-570+], who had converted 100s and 1000s to become Christians, raised the anger of a king. After his trials to detour him from deep faith by the futile seduction by two who-
    res followed by torture, Christopher's body suffered the death of martyr. His stuttering was released and his soul was free(d).
    The general LoC of mankind was possibly around 110+ then.


  • 1) 2) 3) 4) Socrates [LoC 540], the wise questioning Greek philosopher was found guilty by a committee of disgruntled Athenians to be a blasphemer, who is spoiling youth. He was sentenced to death (by hemlock poison) by a two thirds majority of the committee.
    The general LoC of mankind was possibly around 130 then.


  • 1) 2) 3) Nelson Mandela [Influence LoC 505], a tortured political activist and prisoner for 27 years, who had survived this period, was released from incarceration and subsequently elected president of South Africa.17
    The general LoC mankind had just reached a level above 200.


  • 1) 2) 3) The Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza [LoC 480] was shunned by officials after receiving murder threats even by his family members due to his writings and public appearances. He decided to live a secluded life in silence
    as an optician, researcher and unknown writer at his time.
    The general LoC of mankind was possibly below 180 then.


  • 1) 2) 3) The Italian astrophysicist Galileo Galilei [LoC 455, works 485] did externally renounce his thesis on a helio-
    centric paradigm when he suffered an Inquisition process and kept silent in public.
    The general LoC of mankind was below 200 then.
    359 years later, October 1992, the head of the Catholic Church Pope John Paul II [LoC 570] (1920-2005) publicly apologized for the error of his church to pass a ban on Galilei.
    The general LoC of mankind was at around 205 then.


Comment: The teachers in the 400s (Galillei, Spinoza) tended to renounce when under attack to save their lives, the ones in the 500s (Socrates) died in an overall field below LoC 200 – or else they stayed mostly silent and worked the indirect path to stay alive, given their karma allowed for that.


Dr. David R. Hawkins issued his first public book containing his teachings and a narrative on his enlightenment experience in 1995 – 30 years past the event and seven years past the elementary step of mankind crossing the threshold of LoC 200. Worldly sources (see Wikipedia entries) acknowledge him both as a living mystic and as a controversial teacher.

Quotes on True teachers

Quotes by D. Hawkins

  • Great works of art depicting individuals who have reached the level of Enlightenment characteristically show the teacher with a specific hand position, called a mudra, wherein the palm of the hand radiates benediction. This is
    the act of the transmission of this energy field to the consciousness of mankind. This level of divine grace
    calibrates up to 1000, the highest level attained by any persons who have lived in recorded history – to wit, the
    Great Avatars to whom the title "Lord" is appropriate:
    ► Lord Krishna,
    ► Lord Buddha and
    ► Lord Jesus Christ. [...] Because the scale of power advances logarithmically, a single avatar at a conscious-
    ness level of 1000 can, in fact, totally counterbalance the collective negativity of all of mankind.

    Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 94, Hay House, February 2002


  • As was cited in the research done in Power versus Force,
    • one single avatar at a consciousness level of 1,000 totally counterbalances the collective negativity of all mankind.
    • An individual at level 700 counterbalances the negativity of 70 million individuals below the level of 200.
    • One individual at 600 counterbalances ten million people below 200;
    • one at 500 counterbalances 750,000 below 200.
    • One individual at consciousness level 300 counterbalances the negativity of 90,000 individuals below 200.
Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 3 "The Nature of the Quest", S. 67, 2001 and S. 38, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

Quotes by various sources

  • There is no matter as such! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. [...] We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.
    Max Planck [LoC 475] (1858-1947) German physicist, founder of the quantum theory, Nobel Prize in Physics recipient, 1918, Speech Das Wesen der Materie ['The Nature of Matter'], Florence, Italy, 1944, Source: Archiv zur Geschichte der Max‑Planck‑Gesellschaft,
    Abt. Va, Rep. 11 Planck, Nr. 1797


  • [René] Descartes [LoC 490] believed the only kind of mind was the conscious mind.
    Then [Sigmund] Freud [LoC 499] reinvented the unconscious.
    Then [Carl Gustav] Jung [LoC 520-540] said it's not just a personal unconscious but a collective unconscious.
    Morphic resonance [LoC 460] shows us that our very souls are connected with those of others and bound up with the world around us. Interview with Rupert Sheldrake (*1942) English biochemist, plant physiologist, researcher in parapsychology and morphic resonance, author, Rupert Sheldrake: The delightful crackpot, presented by the US American news and opinion website Salon, David Bowman, 23. November 1999

The net community as well as the overall collective consciousness still thoroughly believe Nelson Mandela to be the originator this text himself.
