CD 17: Continuation of Tathagata’s Meditation in the Cybercity
There exists no Heaven, or Hell besides what the human beings may themselves create. Similarly, one can not ascend to Paradise by the power of faith, or adhering to superstitious belief. Instead, the way to Paradise lies in the journey along the enlightened path. In contrast to Paradise, Hell is an adobe of the ignorant mind, who are hurled to struggle with the forces of nature and the darkness of the instinctual world. Thus we are creators of our own Heaven and Hell, which originate from our own power of the mind and the way we connect to different levels of consciousness.
Knowledge about the natural forces and the skill to manipulate them to create conditons of individual advantage, in order to dominate and rule over others, is another way of slipping into the Hellish path of the mind. After entering the Cybercity, where men and women have made a pact with the Devil to gratify personal pleasures and needs without concern for the needs of the whole of humanity Tathagata warns women and men about the danger of the path of freedom attained through technological skills.
