JOURNEY TO THE WEST —THE FOUR CONTINENTS

Journey to the West is a metaphor for an internal journey to the state of enlightenment. Like most scriptures, the story begins with a creation myth.

Moved by Pan Gu’s creation, the Three Emperors put the world in order and the Five Rulers laid down the moral code. The world was then divided into four great continents: The Eastern Continent of Superior Body, the Western Continent of Cattle-gift, the Southern Continent of Jambu and theNorthern Continent of Kuru. This book deals only with the Eastern Continent of Superior Body. -- Journey to the West, Chapter 1

The creation of the world symbolizes the creation of a man`s inner psychological world, rather than the physical universe.

The life of this world is your lower self, your passions and your natural inclinations. That is what is meant by this world. -- Al-Jilani

The human body is like a country, and the mind is like a ruler. Liu Yiming, The Taoist I ching, Hexagram #7

The concept of four continents originates with Buddhism. In Buddhist cosmology, rather than a country, the whole world is taken to represent a human being. The world contains four continents. In the following quote, Buddha is residing in the Tushita Heaven preparing to be born, and decides where he will be born.

Buddha then made the observation concerning the continent. Looking over the four continents with their attendant isles, he reflected: "In three of the continents the Buddhas are never born; only in the continent of India are they born." Thus he decided on the continent. -- Khuddaka Nikaya

Buddha represents the inner mind educated with the knowledge and tools to awaken. In Taoism he is called the Mind of Tao, in the Fourth Way he is called the Steward.

Buddha is mind, mind is Buddha, -- Understanding Reality by Zhang Boduan (11th c. Taoist master)

Buddha is the mind, the mind is Buddha. -- Journey to the West, chapter 14

Man is compared to a house in which there is a multitude of servants but no master and no steward. The servants have all forgotten their duties; no one wants to do what he ought; everyone tries to be master, if only for a moment. The house can be got ready for the arrival of the steward who will, in his turn, prepare it for the arrival of the master. – Gurdjieff

"Only now did I gradually come

to what the mandala really is...

"Formation, transformation, the 

eternal mind's eternal recreation"

And that is the self, the wholeness 

of the personality, which when

everything is well...is harmonious,

but which can bear no self deception.

My mandala images were cryptograms

on the state of myself...

which were delivered to me each day."

The Red Book              Carl G. Jung
