Kali is the H-bomb. She is the personal god that creates and
destroys everything. She stands on the absolute god that supports
her and is connected to NOTHING. You need a firm grounding in
some kind of cosmology to even begin grasping this subtle stuff.
The idea of total non-connectivity is HAIRY. The absolute effects
nothing and is effected also by nothing yet it supports everything
and is pure existence. You could say that the personal God and
the absolute one are definitely not the same thing, yet are
also not different. We just keep hitting paradoxes.
only important thing you need to know now is that all this new
Age bullshit about All is One is extremely simplistic. When
Ramakrishna went into Nirva-kalpa Samadhi the world vanished
along with all its inter-connections. He was force-fed by a
monk to stay alive because his mission was not completed. Had
he not snapped out of N-S in three weeks. then he would have
disappared forever possibly into Shiva. The Godhead. The Absolute.
Not too many folks come back from this kind of experience. who
would? The freedom is total. Karma becomes simply just a concept.
