Immortal Self Propelling Wheel

"You must have guidance from within, and for that you need the attitude of the child in order to be humble and obedient, and not conceited, not having better ideas, so that you can obey the impulses that come from within.
You are then like the wheel that moves out of itself. And that wheel is the sun symbolism, it is a mandala.
The wheel has not only been since time immemorial a symbol of the sun, the sun itself has been a symbol-that wheel which moves over the sky with nobody moving it, the wheel moving by itself.
So the sun has forever been a symbol of individuation, a symbol of the man who can stand by himself and move out of himself without being pushed." ................Carl Jung,

There are two key positioning that needs to highlighted. First is the child like attitude of acceptance. A child takes in all observation without bias and in this childlike innocence there is inner wisdom. This are the four gates of the Mandala, which if they are not fully open leads to unbalance and hence modification of pure consciousness.

"Mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल Maṇḍala, 'circle') is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a centre point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T, Mandalas often exhibit radial balance." [1]

The second is the concept of the wheel representing the Sun and perennial movement and is very apt in identifying the movement that issues forth from within. Every celestial movement is a complex dynamics that cannot be understood purely from limited observation. The movement of the planets in the solar system is governed by the mass of the sun according to Einstein's General theory of Relativity. But the Sun itself and its movement is ordained through the dynamics of the massive black hole in the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy and all galaxies in the local group are entangled with the mutual force that act upon them.

When we breakdown the constituent of all the matter (gas, dust, planets and stars) into the most fundamental particles, the known universe of matter is only 4%. We are not able to observe or experimentally measure 96% of the energy that is driving the universe. What we can infer from this fact is that human observation is limited when the subject/object duality sets in.

Let us analyse the nature of the wheel. It is the most efficient invention through which locomotion was possible with minimum energy. This is because every point of contact with the traction surface is equidistant from the prime mover axis. This leads to transference at constant effort. If the ambiance in which the traction takes place offers least resistance such as the space time manifold perennial movement is made possible. This is the reason that Carl Jung positions the Sun wheel in a Mandala.

The important character of the Mandala is the radial balance. As explained from a technical point of view how this is achieved, it is necessary to note how the radial balance can only be possible, when the two dimensional Mandala is placed anywhere within the three dimensional space or four dimensional space-time For this to be achieved the perception of external space-time must be at equipotential energy. While the vacuum of external space is at uniform energy level any introduction of matter, in whatever form, introduces an unbalance. This unbalance has to be negated through an inner energy which results from the annihilation objective reality.

This is the self propelling symbol of individuation which is equated to the brilliance and movement of the Sun.
Imagine that you are given special powers to be the Sun and look out. For you as this special individual all objective reality is obliterated in the brilliance of the Self. It is this power that great Yogis achieve and are self propelled in this eternal journey to the undivided unity.

Love to you all.
