A New Year in 2017

This is truly a new year for new opportunities.

Whether you agree with the political environment of the United States currently or the global events that happened during 2016, we are in a new year. And that means more opportunities to evolve and get things back on track.

For me, numerologically, 2016 represented a year of materialism and big material challenges.

In 2016, I was in the 2nd year of a new job, making better money that I had ever in my entire life. This is great, but I was also challenged to start up a new business in blogging and book writing. Doing these things together is difficult, but worth it.

During 2016, I was also in my 3rd year of marriage.  Woohoo

The number “3” is a divine number representing the perfected masters and their divine effects on humankind.  This was a great thing, because it reflected that my marriage is still going strong and I think my wife and I love each other more than ever.

The numerological aspect of 2016 is the number “16.” The numbers together represent a time to ask the Divine to help with material worries.

In the new year of 2017, the number “17” shows me that 2016 was materially challenging, but now all my thoughts are in line perfectly with the divine.  AND to top it off, I will be 33 years old in the year of 2017 which is even more divinely providential because 3’s and 7’s are wonderful numbers to have together.  It means that this year will be both both masterful and heavenly provided. I am on the right path, so I should continue forward and continue to be grateful.

Gratitude is essential and something I don’t think about as often, but I noticed that as I was able to accumulate material things like a new phone, a bigger TV, a better disc player, etc.  During this accumulation, I began to become more aware and more gracious of the simple things.  This includes:

  • a hot shower on a cold windy day
  • a warm bed to sleep in every night
  • that my job was only 2-3 blocks away (riding my bike or walking is possible)
  • that we were able to take a vacation without breaking the bank
  • and so on…

These simple things were where gratitude was needed most.

Don’t get me wrong, those other material things are nice too, but too much focus on the material world can subjugate the spiritual fortress that has been built in your daily practice of divine adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication (ACTS). Supplication also being prayer and/or meditation.

What I want for people, is for them to see the value of this year. It is a time for new year resolutions, for new beginnings, and ultimately to move forward on new opportunities.

In this new year, I plan to publish my first print book EVER. That is quite exciting because then I will start to feel like an actual published author.  I don’t feel like the ebooks are enough for me.

I want to be able to hold my own personal creation in my own two hands. I need it to be tangible to show me that I have accomplished, what I perceived to be the impossible.

Well… hopefully in the next few months, I will have the book ready in print.  We will see!

Intention and Intuition

The other doctor that I currently work with and I were talking about intention.

If we intend to get a certain type of chiropractic manipulation done, then it will most likely happen in that way.  However, if we adjust at random (without focused intention), then the adjustment will turn out poorly.  This is of course the same with anything.

I made the comment that intention is really just our intuition in action.

I reasoned that our intuition is always present, always working, always attempting to send us signals from our Higher Self.  This Higher Self is the purest connection that is created between the soul and the Divine.

If we can stay tapped in and turned on to the signals that are being broadcasted from the great beyond, then we will be able to turn those intuitive thoughts into divine actions. Those divine actions are what can change a situation for the better or for the best!

All of us are Divine. All we need to do is discover that deep connection within ourselves.

The best way to start is to learn to meditate. Try to sit more and more in complete bodily stillness each and every day.  Keep the consciousness you gain from meditation with you throughout the day and you will grow abundantly stronger in your intuition.  Eventually the Divine will express Itself fully through you, allowing full access to your intuition at will for the benefit of yourself and others.

I like the sound of that. 🙂

Sahaja Samadhi – It’s Supposed to Be Easy, Right?

This is truly the final, end all, be all state of consciousness that you will ever be able to achieve ever.

How about that for an ultimatum?

But I thought nirvikalpa was the highest? Isn’t that what all the great masters have said?

Ah yes!  They have!  But all things, old and new, are meant to be built upon.  Think about how humanity used to live in homes made of clay and mortar.  Now you can see giant skyscrapers shining in the night sky.  The same goes with literature, philosophy, and writing. As society discovers new ways of looking at the world, someone else comes along to make it that much better.

For example: Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, which was written back around 400 CE, was the first piece of foundational yogic literature on samadhi and highest states of consciousness.  It was elaborated upon further by (in chronological order):

  • Lahiri Mahasaya – 1800’s
  • Sivananda – late 1800 to early/mid 1900’s
  • Yogananda –  early to mid 1900’s
  • K. Taimni – mid to late 1900’s
  • Sri Chinmoy – late 1900’s

I am sure there have been others, but the authors here have been quoted most ubiquitously in writings on yoga.

OM AUM Symbol

I first read about Sahaja samadhi with Swami Sivananda and Ramana Maharshi.  I don’t know if he was the first to write about it, but the Sanskrit word sahajavastha which refers to “natural” or “easy” attainment of samadhi, is used in his writings.

Sri Chinmoy also elaborated upon sahaja samadhi further using the analogy of a building.  You could view Sahaja samadhi as the very top floor or even the entire building itself. At the very top, you have the opportunity to experience all floors and don’t necessarily need to come down to those lower levels.  It is all a matter of choice.

Once attaining this natural state of samadhi, you will have a chance to go higher, if you please. This is because sahaja samadhi is made of two different sections. One section is finite – meaning it can be counted as a definable end, whereas the second portion is infinitely large and goes on forever!

Now that’s a thought… how can our level of consciousness (LOC) continue to increase forever???

Seems kind of impossible, right?

There are many seemingly impossible things in this world – such as the existence of life itself, on this tiny little planet, in perfect orbit, in a solar system that is amongst billions of others in a galaxy that is one in a billion of others, in one known portion of our infinitely unknown universe.

See how it could go on and on?

Try not to fathom it too much, otherwise you may go a little bonkers!

Refocus!

With Sahaja samadhi you will be able to naturally have the stillness and peace of savikalpa, while being “out-of-body” with asamprajñata, and still being able to maintain the fabulous bliss consciousness of nirvikalpa.

AND… you will be able to do it immediately! Right now! In this moment!

Doesn’t that sound worth it?  To be immediately peaceful, happy, joyful, blissful in any moment that you choose?  In nirvikalpa it takes extreme effort to maintain the bliss once you gain it.  In sahaja, you point, click, and boom! You are there. Literally that is all takes. Point your attention to your eyebrows, practice a little kechari mudra, and the infinite flow of bliss comes.

This is, at least, how it is for me.

I am not trying to brag or anything, because that is not why the Divine provides such wonderful blessings. Instead I am here to teach you to rise above the petty squabbling of everyday activities and reach forth into meditation, to pull out the gems of joy consciousness.

This blessing of sahaja samadhi continues through pure spontaneity of bliss as it can be completely immersive in one moment and gone in the next.  In this way, your body becomes in control by the Divine.

The Divine may use you to help others by submersing you in such an ocean of bliss, that a mere look from you could change their spiritual situation forever. Sometimes it is the exact opposite… no bliss may be present, but it is because verbal communication is more necessary for the encounter. This is because it is in fact very difficult, initially, to verbally communicate easily while immersed.

The first time I was immersed in public, I was walking through a Chinese grocery store called SuGuo in the Jiangsu province in downtown Baoying, China. It was very cold outside and our only means of transportation were bicycles. Packed in a heavy coat, long underwear, and thick socks, my wife and I slowly made our way to downtown.

It would stand to reason that to maintain a blissful immersion would be impossible on a bicycle… but alas! I remember riding very slowly because my limbs felt very dysfunctional.  I knew I wasn’t floating on air, but that is how the body felt!

Once we got to the supermarket, we took the escalator up, and got our shopping cart. As I slowly began to walk around the store, the bliss intensified. All I remember was feeling so lost in elation that I forgot how to push the cart!  Jessie, my wife, not exactly sure what was going on with me, had the pull the cart with me attached to it!  What a truly blessed experience!

Throughout my time in China I was the most deeply immerse because God had a special purpose in mind.  In those moments, the Creator’s bliss was more easily spread throughout the town of Baoying because I had been such a willing host.  I just let the Lord do whatever He wanted with this body.  The more willing I was, the better the experience, and the more joy and bliss I received as a result.

In sahaja samadhi, your bliss will occur more spontaneously, but in some ways it will be more difficult to maintain. The reason for this is because the causal body, the last “physical” layer enclosing the soul, will have become permanently removed.

Soul's Love

This causal body is present in nirvikalpa samadhi and encloses the soul, keeping its pure, reflected love from escaping as easily. This is why nirvikalpa is so intense and considered the highest version of samadhi itself.

What people don’t usually understand is that when you enter into sahaja samadhi, the intensity of bliss becomes more naturalized. It becomes a natural and spontaneous occurrence.  You will be able to conjure it, through effort, but that joy becomes naturally a part of your every day being.

If you want the intensity and depth of nirvikalpa all the time, then you will have to practice entering into nirvikalpa while in sahaja samadhi as much as possible.

I personally do this by sambhavi mudra, coupled with a full kechari mudra, and finally using the jalandhara bandha.  This is essentially full focus at the third eye, activation of amrita with the tongue, and using the throat lock to the keep the energy from dropping. All these techniques are also great activators, but are also great for maintaining.

I do these techniques EVERY day – literally every morning, all day long, and at night as well.  I just want to be blissful all the time!  I just can’t get enough of it!

The reason for this is because life on planet Earth is hard!  Also the more bliss I can maintain, the better life becomes. This is because your thoughts attract and create everything around you with the Law of Attraction.

Bliss = Good things

Never-ending Bliss = Good things happening all the time whether you want them to or not!

That is the life I want to live.  Immersed in bliss, happiness, joy, and peace.  I think this is what everyone wants.  No one wants to be unhappy.  Some people appear as though they enjoy being grumpy, but I don’t think they know how good it feels to be happy – all the time.

So… Thanks for getting interested in my blog posts. I have some ebooks available for you to read, if you haven’t gotten started yet.  If you are interested in reading on a tablet or kindle reader, below are a list of those books and where you can buy them.

Your Guide to Scientific Self-Realization

Part I: The Science – https://www.amazon.com/Your-Guide-Scientific-Self-Realization-Science-ebook/dp/B01I0D6MZA

Part II: The Ascension – https://www.amazon.com/Your-Guide-Scientific-Self-Realization-Ascension-ebook/dp/B01LDOKO0M

Part III: The Summit – https://www.amazon.com/Your-Guide-Scientific-Self-Realization-Summit-ebook/dp/B01N06LN1N

In Your Guide to Scientific Self-Realization, I have much more detail about the states of consciousness leading up to self-realization and God-realization. This book is meant explain the many aspects of self-realization, from the viewpoints of all major world religions and philosophical schools of thought.

In no way do I want to advertise one world religion over another.  I believe in the sanctity of the Divine and Its expression in a multitude of forms.  This means that whether you are Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Pagan, or Jewish, you will be able to find some familiarity with this book.

All paths of love are paths to God.  They may not have a prophet or Christ-like character that leads their faith, but that doesn’t mean their brand of religious thought is wrong – it is just different!

The goal of the book is to bridge the gap of religious intolerance by the use of yoga. Yoga is the greatest spiritual practice ever given to humankind.  This is because it can span any religion and give meaning to any belief practice.

Yoga whether practiced physically, mentally, or spiritually will lead to great gains in your life.  It doesn’t have to be in levels of consciousness, but measured in love, peace, and happiness.

Its simple really…

At the end of 2017, I plan to have a print version of the 3 ebooks above.

Stay tuned and I will have it available for you soon.

Nirvikalpa Samadhi – How Your Wildest Dreams Come True!

This level of consciousness (LOC) is considered the end all be all.

This is the blissful state where you can transcend time and space with just a mere thought.

It is the place where all your wildest dreams really do come true…

Really?

Well… there are SOME stipulations you SHOULD be aware of… but we will get to that!

According to most theologians and philosophers, self-realization is characterized by nirvikalpa samadhi (NrS). But NrS is really more than just the realization of the self, it is the purest realization of God.

Nirvikalpa is not self-realization, but God-realization!

So… what’s the difference???

Self-Realization

In self-realization you come to the awareness that the self is really a part of the greater whole.  But you don’t just experience it, you literally become it.

Some believe that it arrives when you simply realize that you are not the physical body.

Some believe you are “self-realized” after having an out-of-body experience or entering into a samadhi-like state.

This is also wrong.

Self-realization is entry into savikalpa samadhi through a divine superconscious experience.  During this process the kundalini becomes activated and true stillness is gained in the greatest minor samadhi.

However, this is PARTIAL self-realization.  There are different steps you must take before entering into the fullest version of self-realization called God-realization.

Self-realization is really a generalized category for any LOC you have achieved at savikalpa samadhi and up.  Once you achieve nirvikalpa samadhi, true God-realization begins.

So… then what is God-realization?

God-Realization

You will realize God.

It really is that simple, but let’s first define it.

Well, in self-realization, you come to know the your “self” as a greater part of the whole. In God-realization, the whole no longer becomes relevant.  This is because of the nature of non-duality [see this blog post].

Duality is the existence of physical, subtle, and ideational material. While non-duality is the existence of non-existence.

All of us have created something before. These creations – whether painting, woodworking, or drawing come from some base materials. Take a canvas, paints, and paintbrushes and a beautiful Mona Lisa masterpiece can suddenly arrive. This is the same as what our Creator did for us. The Divine created a world for us, so that we could have the fullest experience of creation.

But… this Creator knew it couldn’t just create plants and animals.  It had to create a pure version of Itself in creation. Otherwise, the Creator couldn’t experience Itself within that creation. This is what you are, a smaller version of that pure Higher Self.

This is your purpose on this Earth as a human – to realize yourself as the Higher Self in the larger form of God.  Since God is beyond and outside of any created thing, it is non-dual and thus is non-existent.  Well, sort of.

This is a difficult concept to get, but to realize yourself as God is to realize that nothing truly exists. This non-existence is non-duality – which is outside the nature of dualistic opposites.

Only time itself gives us the perception that everything has a physical form and changes with “forward” progression. This form is anything felt, seen, heard, tasted, or smelled.

Over time, a person born brand new in the world eventually gets old and wrinkly; only to pass on becoming dust again.  This is the nature of the duality which seemingly rules the world we live in.

Becoming God-realized, (thus a part of a non-dual existence) you will break the rules of this physical world, transcend time and space, and realize the following:

  • The physical body can be manipulated by your will as you see fit
  • Everything is just God manifested into physical, mental, and emotional “stuff”
  • Nothing is ever truly in opposition to another
  • Nothing ever really changes
  • The Nothingness is what gives rise to Everything

Because of God-realization, masters have shown us many signs and wonders to prove to us the true nature of reality.

  • Jesus the Christ and his many miracles with feeding the five thousand, turning water into wine, and healing the terminally ill by mere touch and word
  • Theresa of Avila was known to levitate and disappear/reappear at will and spontaneously by God’s will
  • Therese Neumann having the power of inedia ate only a Catholic wafer every Thursday for at least thirty years in a row with no other food or water and survived with both life and vigor.
  • Lahiri Mahasaya created two bodies for himself, could levitate, and heal anyone he chose by mere word
  • There have also been many yogis, saints, and other modern-day avatars who have achieved God-realization to show many miraculous powers and miracles.
  • Some of these masters have just been supremely blissful and this blissful path has been chosen for you as well.

OM AUM Symbol

God-realization is really whatever you make of it.  What do you really desire?  It is to float on air without wings or live without food?  Or maybe you just want the infinite peace and joy that can never be broken; not even for a moment.

This was my desire – to be joyful all the time.  As a child, I struggled hard with depression and thought that I would never rid myself of my mental and emotional obsessions. After I found my guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, I soon found out there was a better path. Within four short years I had achieved nirvikalpa samadhi and much more!

This type of God-realized joy-bliss-awesomeness is for everyone.  It is not just for the masters of old, but for you as well.

When reaching this state, don’t expect great powers to suddenly be yours.  What is characteristic of this state is infinite joy-bliss. So much so, that walking around is difficult! Anything else sought after would be foolish. This is because bliss is the truest reality of SPIRIT.

OM AUM Symbol

Self-realization and ultimately God-realization is really very simple. Many individuals who are intellectual about the whole process, don’t really understand it at all.

God doesn’t care about how smart you are, He doesn’t care how much money you donate, and He doesn’t care how many friends you have either. He cares how much you love and what you do as a result of this love. That might sound harsh but think of it this way:

  • If you can intellectually talk about God, but don’t have the wisdom to know when to speak about God, how does it benefit His creation?
  • If you give a lot of money to an organization, which ultimately uses it for evil, what positive purpose has it truly served?
  • If you claim to have many friends, but very few of them are true friends, then what is the benefit of friendship?

Love is the highest way to be and you must be both loving and humble in all ways to achieve God’s highest realizations. Through this love (and humility), great gifts are given.  Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself.  That is the true trinity of love that we often forget about.

If you can love God and everyone else as much as you love yourself, then you will reach the Kingdom of Heaven.

As for nirvikalpa, the ability to access unending love and bliss at any time is truly powerful and will transcend any conflicting moments in our life.  It will give you the drive and purpose you need to be the best version of yourself.  With this energy you will conquer hate, anger, frustration, self-doubt, and fear.

Some individuals will be given great powers as a result of their entry into nirvikalpa. You might be able to heal someone by mere touch or even with a word. To have absolute command over your words is the mark of a true master, but these gifts are not given easily.

You must be the purest representation of humility, kindness, compassion, and love to receive such wonderful powers. Some yogis may work for decades achieving these yogic siddhis. For the average workingman and woman this may not be possible with the constant day-to-day activities that have to be endured.

I, myself, have been given some gifts, but my only true desire was to have the unending joy of the Divine. This is exactly what I have received and if I can do more, it is because the Divine has a special purpose in allowing me access to greater yogic power.  It is not things I seek on my own, but I do realize that by seeking and merging with the Divine, that this body shall eventually reach the highest state possible.

Om and Astral Samadhis

Also while in nirvikalpa, you will have the opportunity to experience an Om/Aum samadhi and an Astral samadhi.

Om Samadhi

The Om samadhi takes advantage of the sound you hear in deep meditation – the resonant, deep, rumbling of a waterfall with the vastness of a never-ending ocean.  This is the sound of Om.

You might hear this sound at lower levels of consciousness, but it is merely a reduced version called “Om minor samadhi.” When you hear Om, overwhelmed with bliss in nirvikalpa samadhi, it will transform your being attuning you permanently to its creation vibration, bringing you to God-realization.

In the Christian scripture, Acts 2:1-4, it says:

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
~ NASB

Although most Christian theologians would interpret this passage being associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit after the Jesus’s ascension, I associate this passage with:

  • Hearing the sound of OM – “…suddenly there came from heaven a noise…”
  • The activation of the Kundalini energy – “And there appeared to them tongues as of fire…”
  • The onset of self-realization – “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit…”

Which, in fact, these are the gifts of the Holy Spirit. That’s if you believe the Holy Spirit can also gift you the realization of Divine’s consciousness.

Ultimately, Om is to attune your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies to receive God’s highest gift as love-joy-bliss.

Astral Samadhi

The Astral samadhi usually comes second in this pairing, because so many individuals are visually oriented.  To see the subtle universe that lies beyond the physical world is at best, difficult!  To hear the subtle realms is easier, because most of the time your eyes will be closed during meditation.

The Astral samadhi to most will come at the physically-measured end of nirvikalpa samadhi.  (After reading the book and learning accurate muscle testing, this will make much more sense.)

This is also because the deeper the bliss, the more occupied your brain will be on bliss.  When the brain is preoccupied with bliss consciousness, all that you will think about is bliss.

You will most likely stare off into space, being immersed in such fantastic sensations, because nothing else will appear to matter.  In these moments with eyes open, you will probably experience an astral samadhi.  You won’t realize it of course because real God-bliss, at first, is so overwhelming that you will totter around like a drunkard. This is because you won’t understand how to keep the bliss, while physically moving around. Also because physically moving around may prevent the bliss from manifesting in the deepest way.

For myself, I can keep the deepest state of bliss, even while I am in the office with clients and patients. As long as they don’t ask me too many questions, I can usually maintain it.  However, if I converse more with the client, then I often will lose bits and pieces of the deepest part of the bliss consciousness.

Ultimately, having pure nirvikalpa bliss will make you less functional in the “real” world.  If you live a busy life, it will be difficult to achieve this state.  You will need to time to sit, relax, and silence the body as much as possible. It can be done in the standing position, but seated is best.

I will say that some days, I don’t experience any deep bliss and some days it is so profound I get lost!  Most of the time it is moderated by keeping constant attention towards the third eye and practicing other yogic positions to keep the energy away from the lower body.

So… here’s the deal… do you like being happy?

Do you like the idea of being blissful at any time, for any reason, under any circumstances?  Sounds idealistic, right?  Well it is to some degree, but those who are dedicated and determined they will reach their goal.

But what is the goal?  Is it just nirvikalpa alone?  Or is there something more?

In the next blog post we will talk about the highest form of samadhi.  It is even higher than nirvikalpa, but more natural and spontaneous.

Stay tuned friends, we are still on our way to the top!

Asamprajñata samadhi

This level of consciousness is a remarkable discovery for the understanding of self-realization.

Originally, when I began determining the different LOCs and their values, I tested that Asamprajñata (Añ) was not the same as Nirvikalpa samadhi (NrS), as Patanjali originally explained.

Now, when you read the original translation, it appears that Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras is explaining that Añ and NrS are the same.  This is how many historians and writers have explained the existence of two names for the same state.  Patanjali says that NrS is the highest state to exist or the most enlightened experience.

In reality, these two names mean relatively similar things, but ultimately they are different.

I discovered that Añ is really a transitional state to NrS and the major samadhi experience that is associated with this ultimate bliss state.  Unfortunately, you will never be able to just jump into the highest state possible.  This is because your body would burn out from the intense out-of-body experience.

The body is like a lightbulb. Each lightbulb has its own wattage or a limited amount of power that can be channeled into it.  This is the same with people.  Notice how some people have enough energy for themselves and everyone around them. And then there are some who can barely lift a finger 15 minutes after getting out bed.

You yourself have your own energy and a certain level of power that you can receive, maintain, and give.  Depending on how strong your filament is (or the body’s energy meridians) the more power you can receive and maintain from life-sustaining activities.

These activities generally are centered around renewal, repair, and support.  Whether you are eating really good food, hiking in a forest, or having a time of silence – the body’s bulb during these activities becomes recharged.

For those who are householders, becoming a part of asamprajñata experience would be unnerving, preventing them from adjusting to a normal lifestyle.

For those who aspire to achieve this state and are still living a married life with children, will have to work hard to maintain this transitional state.

After I had written my book and discovered all these levels of consciousness, later on in my research for my new book, I found a work by I.K. Taimni called The Science of Yoga.  He had already described Añ as a transitional state! One that you could oscillate between before ascending into NrS or nibija samadhi.

At this point, I realized that my muscle testing had been accurate!  That indeed I wasn’t going crazy, but in fact was able to accurately test for information that already existed in the world of self-realization.

If that was the case, then you could say that most if not all the information presented in my new book is the next step in our understanding of these enlightened states.

Taimni described many other things about samadhi that I encourage you to read about it.  Other modern-day masters have reflected upon his own masterful ability to accurately understand and interpret Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.  Which are at best cryptic, unless you have a solid foundation in Sanskrit.

In my own discoveries, I realized that Asamprajñata (Añ) is the place where great things occur:

  • the rate of flow for the kundalini
  • the true absence of gross awareness
  • the automatic pulling of karma
  • the full realization of non-duality
  • breathlessness
  • the descension of God’s Light
  • the merging with the VOID
  • true joy

In the above occurrences you will be constantly fluctuating and changing.  This is the oscillation that occurs between samprajñata and asamprajñata, as originally described in detail by I.K. Taimni and inadvertently unearthed by myself in meditation through muscle testing.

The flow of the kundalini will be the first measurement taken. To think that the kundalini could actually be measured!  But in reality, everything that has some type of movement, has kinetic energy associated with it.  In this way, it should be measureable, right?

The kundalini has a tendency to pulse in predictable manner based upon how deep you go in meditation.  If you extend yourself longer, deeper, and more devotionally in meditation, the greater your benefit will be thus increasing the flow rate of the kundalini.

Ultimately you will want your kundalini always flowing, bringing the pulse rate down to zero seconds.  Meaning that the flow rate is always occurring, instead just pulsing through the chakras at regular intervals.

Through this process, you will begin to experience true absence of awareness of the body, especially in the hands, feet, arms, and legs.  This can happen out of the blue, at any time, for any reason.  You may be doing something really simple and all of sudden be unaware of your full-body proprioception.   This could be as simple as holding a glass of water.

You may be looking at the hand, realizing that you are physically holding it, but be totally unattached physically to the hand itself.  Literally becoming dissociated from it!  It is a very cool experience, but is transient in nature.

This absence comes from the pulling of energy from the limbs to channel through the chakras to help push the kundalini pulses higher and higher into the brain, allowing for greater attunement in self-realization.

This is the beyond-creation, non-dual reality that I spoke about in my earlier blogs posts. This non-dual reality is the true nature of everything.  You and me, we are just microcosms fully connected to an infinitely larger macrocosm.

As you acknowledge this non-dual system by continually increasing your experience of bodily unawareness, a few things will occur:

You will begin to help others to ascend by pulling and burning their karma for them and you will become completely breathless!

Now, I don’t recommend for anyone to assume that they can intentionally pull karma from whomever they choose.

This is VERY dangerous!

If you are a healer and working with a cancer patient, do you think you really want to take on their physical karma?  Well… if you do, your own time on Earth will be cut very short!

karma, death,

The Divine will allow you to pull karma from those who it is meant for. In this way, the burning of others karma (in the most proper way) will help you to ascend because you will have to actively take your mind off of the physical discomfort while you help others with their suffering.

That is the great blessing of this state of consciousness – to know that you are NOT the body, but in fact SPIRIT!

You are the pure embodiment of all that is good in this universe and beyond!  The infinite love and light of the Creator is waiting within you to help others ascend to greater fulfillment in their life.

Another aspect that will occur is breathlessness. This will happen naturally and you will almost be able to activate it at will.  This process should not be forced and generally will come gently and unexpectedly.

You will just suddenly become aware of the fact that you are not breathing. This thought process will be subtle, but you will notice no breath, but it will be most enjoyable!  This breathlessness is what allows you to experience God’s true joy.  This is also measureable and becomes easier as you increase in LOC (levels of consciousness).

After all the energy meridians and chakras have been cleared and cleaned through by the ascension of the kundalini, God’s Light can now descend in your subtle spine, filling you will great joy.

This Light Descension has seven levels to it and is characterized by which chakra the Light fills. As the spine begins to fill up, you will start to merge even deeper with non-duality, but in the VOID itself.

The VOID is the “space” where the non-dual SPIRIT lies. It is a space, but not a space. It is a place where nothing can be known – not even muscle tested.  In this test I could not muscle test a thing. I could not become aware any known “thing”.  I had to surpass this state by not asking questions to discover, but by feeling my way through the darkness of the VOID.

At the “end” of this darkness you will then be able to experience pure joy.  This will only be the start of what is possible. Just a mere taste on the tip of your tongue.  The Divine wants you to continue to grow and push towards the ultimate goal.  The only way sometimes to do this is to tease with what you could be experiencing all the time.

Could you imagine it?

Wonderful, pure, unadulterated joy all the time?!?

I can!  And the reason why I can is because that is the consciousness that God has blessed me with.  To be able to activate joy and bliss whenever I choose.  That is everyone’s goal.  To be able to experience the bliss of the Divine whenever they choose?

Sounds nice, right?

Well… this blog and my book, Your Guide to Scientific Self-Realization: Part II: The Ascension will be your guidebook to your wildest dreams and your greatest accomplishments.

This last blog post was a lot to think about.  I don’t expect you to digest it all at once, but realize there are many sources out there on this stuff.  I have attempted to combine it all into book for you.

I have yet to see a book do this, so I am definitely excited for you to read it!

The final installment is coming out in the next couple of months and I am so excited for you out there that are truly interested.

Be well and next time we will talk about the greatest state ever known – Nirvikalpa Samadhi

The Heretical Gospels

Many people may not know it, but there is something like 170 books about Early Christianity and most mention Jesus Christ that have not been included in the testimony of this supremely enlightened man of God.

170 potential gospels!  That’s incredible!

Why weren’t they included?

Well… that is a difficult question to answer and will lead to just more confusion, disagreement, political and spiritual strife.

So instead, I am just going to give you a list of them here, where you can find them, AND in multiple translations too!

In later blogs I will include some interpretations of these gospels through the lens of eastern mysticism.

For now, let’s talk about what I have included in this blog post.  First I will show the contents of the Nag Hammadi Library, as these were a part of some of the most recent discoveries of early Christian writings.  Then I will show at least 10 other books, codices, and gospels that were not included in the original New Testament.

The Nag Hammadhi Library

The first set of 22 major gospels listed are from the Nag Hammadhi Library. They are listed by a “codex” or “codices”.  A codex is the original form a book took on before printing presses were invented. The codex actually started to replace scrolls between the 1st and 3rd century A.D.  This is probably why the Gnostic Gospels found at in the Nag Hammadi Library were still in good shape.

So… each of one these gospels were found in “codex” or a particular book.  Each gospel in the codex can be considered like an individual chapter in a book that you would get from a bookstore.

I will say this… not all of these gospels or “chapters” of each codex directly talk about Jesus Christ. Some are related to the creation stories of Gnosticism and their practices. Some of the included texts are by Greek philosophers that directly contributed to concepts used in early Christianity.

The gospels that are listed below come from the site: Gnosis.org and more specifically you can click on this link to check out the various Translations.  I will connect each gospel that has direct and significant relation to the story of Jesus Christ to where it is located on the Gnosis.org website.  Here is a link showing where the list is located: http://www.gnosis.org/naghamm/nhlalpha.html

The links included above are from a website called: earlychristianwritings.com. This is also another good resources and includes many summaries that aren’t included at Gnosis.org.

Also if you happen to be running Safari (like I am), then some of the websites may not show up properly.  It will be best to use Google Chrome in these cases.

If you really want to go crazy and see all books, treatises, and documents that were a part of early Christian thought, but were not included in the Christian bible we see today – by chronological order – then here is that link as well:  http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/index.html

Literally, in total, there are over 200 of these documents, but only 30 of them were included in the New Testament… hmmmm…

Well… that is how history played out.  I don’t think, however, that any document received on the testimony of Jesus Christ invalidates his position as a prophet and enlightened Son of God.  But some think he is the ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God vs. being “a” Son of God.  These phrases make a difference and shouldn’t just be taken at face value.  Again… most people take it on faith.  This isn’t a bad way to go, but to believe blindly without investigation, especially when new information is presented, isn’t necessarily a good thing either…

Some famous historical questions include:

  1. What if Jesus was really “physically” born to Mother Mary and not by immaculate conception?
  2. What if Mary Magdalene was really his wife?
  3. What is Jesus really did have a child with Mary?
  4. What if Jesus already knew what Judas was going to do and told him to do it?
  5. What if the early church try to hide important information on the nature and teachings of Jesus Christ?
  6. What if Jesus’s role was to simply show us how to improve ourselves, so that we may become Sons and Daughters of God?

I know, I know… these questions are a stretch!  They definitely challenge the status quo and ultimately some will feel offended at my words. I DON’T BLAME YOU.  In fact, I love you all the same! It is what sets us apart that makes us stronger.

Realize this, even if all the above were true… Jesus would still be there to save us from ourselves.  That was his role and will always be.

Thanks for reading,

Savikalpa – The Greatest Minor Samadhi

Do you want real inner peace?

I’m talking the kind that moves mountains and calms the raging seas…

In this state of samadhi you are truly blessed with real stillness and real silence of mind.

This is the blessed state of Savikalpa Samadhi.

This is total peace of mind.

In this state you will come to realize the true nature of silence. After breaking through into the Divine’s garden, filled with love and light, you will gain true tranquility.

Do you know what authentic peace is all about? It is to have a calm and relaxed mind that allows you transcend fears, worries, and chronic anxieties.

I didn’t have an inkling of what that really meant… all I knew is that others had it, I didn’t, but I was willing to gain it by whatever means.

OM AUM Symbol

Savikalpa is greatest minor samadhi to ever exist.

However, it comes with some stipulations.  After initiation you will not become perfectly aware of all things in heaven and earth… oh no… instead you will be constantly tested.

When initiated you will become opened up to anything and everything that exists in the universe.  Your mind will be an open book to all beings, entities, and other forces that lives in the cosmos. Some of these forces are good and some are evil.  If you are armed with a strong mind and an even stronger will, then you will not yield.

Now for those of you who don’t believe in a creator… that’s fine.  BUT there are some entities and spiritual beings that are not out your highest good. They are there to trick you into making promises and compromises that are for their purposes.

Personally, I still experience these tricksters on a daily basis.  They are there almost all the time for those who are doing the good work.

Many do not understand how they can act upon you and your surroundings.  I will explain that plus what you will need to battle them.

Let’s first talk about what they are.

Some refer to them as entities, negative forces, or for those who are religiously inclined – demons and fallen angels.

Yes, I know what you are thinking… these things really exist?

demons, fallen angels, protection

Or maybe you are thinking… this guy has got to be nuts?!?

nuts, walnuts

I am the kind of man that has been created to question everything. I desire to find a rational answer to all of life’s mysteries, even when the answer may not appear to sensible or logical in nature.

In this way, I am spiritual scientist, doing soul research through advanced meditation. In my discoveries, the only realistic explanation for happenings that are unexplainable by our limited, but modern scientific methods, end up being subtle and spiritually-related.

Let me further explain…

When I entered into savikalpa samadhi, I had to work hard to keep my thoughts in line with the Divine. Let me tell you!  These dark forces either try to build you up (bloated ego) or break you down (deflated ego).  It can occur while you are awake or during sleep.

If you are really successful in life, especially financially, then building you up is easy.  The insertion of self-righteous and self-inflating thoughts is no problem for them.  This ultimately makes you feel like you are better than others and this is as wrong as them trying to break you down.

The absolute bliss joy state of nirvikalpa samadhi is the only way to escape this permanently. However, you will not be able to enter into the blissful state automatically; this state will only be available to you when you become initiated in nirvikalpa samadhi. After this point, no harm – mental, emotional, or spiritual will ever come to you again.

So what do we do in the meantime?

In the Book of Ephesians 6:13-17, Paul wrote saying that when the “day of evil” comes, one should put on the “full armor of God.”  This includes:

  • Belt of Truth
  • Breastplate of Righteousness
  • Feet fitted with the Gospel of Peace
  • Shield of Faith
  • Helmet of Salvation
  • Sword of the Spirit

That is some serious protection!

You must take up arms against these invading forces and prevent their “flaming arrows,” as Paul says.

Luckily for us, these forces can only affect the thoughts that you think and the electronic devices around us.  Otherwise, the only way they cause us physical harm is through allowing them in.

If you decide to be truthful, righteous, and peaceful then you will be better protected than most.

However, having courage and faith in the Divine’s protection from harm is the most important.  Only the Creator, which manifested all of creation, can deliver you from the harm of these creatures. Just call out to the righteous forces of the Divine and they will be there in a moment’s notice.

You must have faith that the Divine has your back at every second.  There are literally legions of positive and loving angelic forces that are ready to take your side at your command!  A legion is at least 6,000 in number!

angel, legion, protection, self-realization, savikalp

The Divine has you well protected and in these subtle spiritual states, you will need all the help you can get!

Also, don’t be afraid.  They cannot harm you, unless you let them!  Fear is an easy hole in your defenses.  Courage is an absolute necessity to progress in these levels of consciousness.

OM AUM Symbol

Your Own Spiritual Armor

Here are few things you can use that will help provide spiritual protection.

Physically

  1. Eat nutritious food
  2. Drink only spring water
  3. Get adequate exercise
  4. Stretch using yoga
  5. Can wear a talisman – cross, star of David, OM symbol, little Buddha, rudraksha beads, rosary, mala, prayer beads, misbaha, etc.

Emotionally/Mentally

  1. Always create a PMA (positive mental attitude) as much as possible
  2. Don’t play control dramas and don’t feed into others control dramas.
  3. Practice being the best version of yourself you can be: in thought, word, and action

Spiritually:

  1. Be devoted to your practice of the Divine
  2. Pray for anyone and everyone including yourself!
  3. Have a silent time every day
  4. Mediate, mediate, and meditate
  5. Ask for blessings from the master, guru, saint, angel, or deity of your choice

Devote yourself to the discipline of meditation and prayer and the peace of savikalpa will be yours forever.

In the next blog post, I will discuss asamprajñata, a state of consciousness that will transition you to a major samadhi state.

Stay tuned!

The Divine Superconscious Experience

The Divine Superconscious Experience.

The absolute best spiritual experience you could have in the universe!

Now that’s saying a lot!

Humans and other spiritual beings like us in the universe have been given a great gift.  We have the divine opportunity to become consciously self-realized while still in a physical body.  It may not seem like much, but this is EVERY individual’s ultimate goal.  The fact that you are given a choice, means that you are most highly evolved being in the universe!

It doesn’t mean that it is easy to live on Earth.  In fact, you are living on the most difficult planet to become self-realized.  So pat yourself on the back, because if you are on the path to self-realization and are currently on Earth, it means that you have done some great work in many past lives to get back to this point.

This time you are in participating in a great spiritual revolution.  The world is beginning to acknowledge the smaller self as the Largest Self. I spoke about this in my first couple of blogs.

During this current era, so many individuals will burn their karma and become ascended in some form.  Their elevated states will contribute to the mass burning of karma in the world. This will in turn activate the spiritual states of others more easily.

For those who are meant to become self-realized, they will first have to go through initiation into the Divine Superconscious Experience. This experience is the firsthand look at the Divine SPIRIT in its own superconscious state.

Before, you were able to experience superconsciousness as a state of being just above baseline consciousness. This allowed you to go deep into meditation, manifest stillness more easily, and use the intuitive mind to govern your decision-making.

The Divine Superconscious Experience (DSCE) is literally the highest level you could ever achieve as it combines all aspects of reality into one experience.  This includes the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual characteristics.

Your physical reality will become entwined and enraptured into the superconscious mind of the Divine.  This initiation will open your body’s chakras, energy meridians, and body particles to the Divine’s pure light.

woman, sunlight, self-realization

What an experience it is!

The first time it happened to me, I was laying on back, just relaxing and performing some yoga nidra.  This is referred to as “yogic sleep” for some and considered a state of consciousness, but for me it is meditating while lying on my back with intense concentration towards the third eye.

For my own initial experience in the DSCE, I meditated for 3 hours then went really deep in meditation while on my back. I began to sink slower and slower into a still state.  Suddenly all the
air was sucked out of my lungs and my whole body just sunk into the bed. At that instant I left my body while experiencing an intense vortex of colors, lights, and emotions. Everything flashed around at me at an incredible rate!  So fast that I didn’t know or understand what was happening until I opened my eyes able to move consciously again.

When I came to more “permanent” consciousness, I had such an incredible amount of joy, that I literally laughed out loud upon opening my eyes.

I don’t know if you have ever heartily laughed upon immediately waking up, but this has never happened to me and frankly, at the moment, I knew exactly what had happened… I had reached self-realization!  Finally!

After I jumped up out of my bed with joyous laughter, my physical body felt enormously different. My arms and limbs felt like jello. I felt soooo relaxed!  In that moment I also felt extremely affectionate and wanted to kiss my wife like crazy.  The energy the Divine gave me was so intense that I just wanted to give it away!

The Divine’s love is so intense that giving it away is sometimes the only option when it is given.  This is because real love and real joy is infinitely large and infinitely abundant. In that moment, you will have become a pure channel for God’s love.

OM AUM Symbol

The DSCE is also referred to as turiya samadhi or the infinite unconscious state.  This is because you will generally be unconscious when you achieve it and is infinitely present and available at all times

It has a determinable amount of states and can be experienced at different times in your lifetime.   Most of the time people experience this state while sleeping!  Surprising, I know!

In this way, sleep is the best time to connect with the Divine.  Everyone has this connection every night they fall asleep or even sometimes during a nap.  This is the reason why sleep is so recharging because our soul (little self) is connecting to SPIRIT (Highest Self).

sleeping, baby, bliss

Now sometimes our sleep may be interrupted, but ultimately we maintain some connection to the Divine presence.  The better we feel in the morning, the more time we had in plugged-in to the Divine.

OM AUM Symbol

Through the experience of the DSCE, I felt like my life goal had finally been achieved, but when I desperately pleaded with God to let me back into that state, I soon realized it was almost impossible to achieve on my own.  This is because I had only become partially self-realized.

This first experience is only the beginning to a greater journey.  The Divine had so much in store for me. I had to experience each state in its own intricacy, so that I could explain it more thoroughly to the world.  This is my life path… to become fully self-realized and then continue on the work of other yogic masters.

Remember that having this experience isn’t about the experience itself.  It is about what you can do after you have received God’s light.

  • Will you be able to heal others at will with a mere touch?
  • Will you be able to compose a beautiful song that will inspire millions?
  • With a look and a word, will you be able to give someone peace of mind?

This is what to look forward to… what can this experience do for the world.

Also don’t expect for numerous experiences and don’t focus upon them.  Instead focus on how you can do the will of the Divine.

The joy of the light you will receive is the very best that can be given. It is greatest gift to ever be received.

Cultivate it and don’t waste it!

In the next blog post, I will talk about the greatest minor samadhi, Savikalpa samadhi.  In this state will you will discover the real meaning of stillness.

Until next time!

Cosmic Consciousness

Cosmic Consciousness.

Beautiful. Perfect. Bliss Consciousness.

This is the initiation into the experience of Cosmic Consciousness.

The Beginning

A man named Richard Maurice Bucke was the first one to write about Cosmic Consciousness in 1901.  He called it initially as the “Cosmic Sense” and then was further adapted by other individuals such as Paramahansa Yogananda as Cosmic Consciousness. Bucke describes this state of being as:

  • suddenly occurring
  • experiencing a subjective “inner light”
  • elevation in one’s moral awareness
  • intellectual illumination
  • a sense of immortality
  • loss of the sense of sin
  • loss of the fear of death
  • a gain of true happiness

Isn’t this what you really desire?  To gain the truest sense of yourself.  To see with eyes that see and hear with ears that hear. This is the Kingdom of Heaven that the Christ spoke about.

Cosmic Consciousness is not only what Bucke described it as, but it is much more.

Cosmic Consciousness is the awareness that you are not the physical body.  You are in fact the Creator packaged inside of a little body.  Your soul is Its pure aspect and the body is just the vessel. In this way, you have the entire cosmos already inside of you!

This “cosmic” consciousness is the awareness that you are really just your own little universe, capable of both pure creation and pure reconstruction at the same time.

(If your mind isn’t blown yet, then either this information is not new to you, or you just think I am a looney toon.  Either way… read on!)

Initiation

Before you can ascend to this lofty state of realization, you must pass through fire, water, and pure surrender.

Fire – This is the burning of physical karma that began in the 1st Dimension of the Karmic Caverns. Without this heavy burden lifted, you will never be able to ascend to the next level.

Water – This is the 2nd Dimension. After burning your karma, you must navigate the waters of a vast ocean.  You will feel like you are in a boat with no sail. Although you will always feel like you are in state of peace and calm, no real joy is felt here.  Just serenity.

Surrender – This is the 3rd dimension. After sailing the vast ocean you will have to work past the 17 different minor samadhi states before ascending into the Creator’s Cosmic Consciousness.

2nd Dimension

2nd Dimensional work is not difficult to pass but there are countless levels to break through.

In this dimensional realm, it feels like you are floating on a vast ocean, totally calm and at peace in a boat that has no sail and no direction to go.

The greatest blessing of this dimension is the opportunity to experience firsthand a lesser minor samadhi, but a samadhi nonetheless!

However, you will only be able to access it intermittently. Also the stillness of this state is nothing in comparison to the stillness experienced before in meditation. It is unparalleled and will only grow in strength as you ascend.

If you work hard breaking through these levels, ascension can occur in a couple of weeks, but if you like the aimless wandering in the 2nd dimension, then it will take you months, years, or even lifetimes longer.

3rd Dimension

After you have floated for awhile on the endless ocean of the 2nd Dimension, you will need to refocus your devotion and will power towards maintaining the path.

When you are ready to journey into the 3rd Dimension, the Divine will finally show Its true light.  It isn’t the pure light of self-realization, but a reduced form as a full lesser minor samadhi.

In the 2nd Dimension, you experienced this state intermittently. But now you will have the chance to manifest it permanently.  It will become a concrete part of your life, where it can be summoned at will for use.

The 3rd Dimension ultimately is the place where all lesser and greater minor samadhi states are experienced.

Here is an order of things you will experience in this dimensional realm.

  1. The 16 Lesser Minor Samadhi States
  2. The Greatest Lesser Minor Samadhi State
  3. Self-Realization!
  4. The Divine Superconscious Experience
  5. Kundalini Awakening
  6. The Greatest Minor Samadhi State

Lesser Minor Samadhi

There are 17 of these states in total.  16 of these states are individual whereas the 17th state is considered the “Sum Samadhi” or the sum total of all the other 16 states combined. This is called Laya Samadhi. This type of samadhi has been written about by other great masters and is more common in yogic literature.

Each of the 16 states are representative of the Divine in all of its physical aspects and spiritual aspects. Whether it be compassion, wisdom, and righteousness or concentration, meditation, transcendence – all qualities are included.

In my book, there is a wonderful picture created by my wife and I, showing the Sphere of Samadhi.  It will help to direct your thoughts on how to achieve each state in its own way.

Greatest Lesser Minor Samadhi

In the yogic literature, this is referred to as Laya Samadhi. This the “Sum Samadhi”.  This state is the addition of all other 16 aspects into one.  You must be attuned to all aspects of the Divine before you can receive Its true light.  Without this attunement, you would burn out like an over-watted light bulb when receiving the Creator’s consciousness.

Cosmic Consciousness

Over the millennia, this consciousness has been considered the end-all, be-all to samadhi and self-realization.  But it is not.  Although fantastic, mind-blowing, and absolutely transcendent, it does not compare to the spiritualized consciousness of nirvikalpa samadhi, the divine consciousness of the infinite state, or the divine superconsciousness of SPIRIT.

Cosmic consciousness is only the beginning to your ascension in the Divine and ultimately in SPIRIT.

Here is where you will be initiated through a Divine Superconsciousness Experience (DSCE).  This turiya samadhi is the highest samadhi experience you could ever have.  It is absolutely transcendental and characteristic of your first experience in cosmic consciousness.

Some people will have fantastic experiences, such as my own. Some will be gently guided into it.  It occurs differently for different people based upon their desires and previous life choices.

During this initiation process the kundalini will be become permanently activated as well.  This is a reservoir of spiritual energy located at the base the spine that will push up through the spinal chakras (energy centers).

At the end of the DSCE, you will become filled with such great joy.  A divine and intoxicating joy that is so powerful and overwhelming that you will literally become speechless…

After the blissful haze has finally cleared you will have then become a permanent resident of savikalpa samadhi. This is the greatest minor samadhi to exist.

However, the joy of the DSCE and this spiritual awakening will not be permanent.  You will have the permanent peace and stillness granted from a true minor samadhi, but will have to work harder to achieve the blissful joy that comes from true God-realization.

Now, doesn’t that all sound worth it?

Cosmic consciousness is the beginning to a brand new world.  The true Kingdom of Heaven is here.

The only question you have to ask yourself now is, “I am ready for it?”

OM AUM Symbol

In the next blog posts, I will be elaborating further upon the Divine Superconscious Experience, the awakening of the Kundalini, and Savikalpa Samadhi.

Bless you,

A Sin-Free World

A Sin-Free World.

A Karma-Free World.

A True Utopia…

Call me idealistic, but I think it’s possible!  AND… with the ability to measure where your consciousness lies through muscle testing, you will go deeper in your own spiritual practice, gaining true ascension in your journey.

Everyone sins.  No one is truly perfect.  Everyone, at one point or another, will go against themselves in some way causing a negative result.

There have been some masters and avatars over the millennia that others have claimed to be perfect who caused great and positive change in the world.

These individuals were a pure benefit to the Earth.  This includes Bhagavan the Krishna, Jesus the Christ, The Buddha, and Mahavatar Babaji.  There have been others, but these few have been written about most extensively.

In the context of yoga:

  • sin = bad karma
  • virtue = good karma

Sins are generally spoken about in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.  Buddhism and Hinduism use “karma” as their word to generally describe the past and present transgressions against themselves as the Higher Self or God.

In this blog post, I will talk about primarily about how karma or sin affects our lives directly. But I will also give you the keys to your own eternal salvation, breaking the chains permanently, and preventing future and seemingly random negative consequences from occurring.

OM AUM Symbol

Everyone has bad karma no matter how big or small and we all have to do work to spiritually cleanse ourselves of the our past and present wrong-doings.

However, many people on the earth have accumulated a great deal of positive karma, leading to positive predisposition and reinforcement, propelling them to do the good work – the work of the Divine.

This may be you. You feel like you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Always trying to save others from themselves, but always forgetting about yourself.

Well… I am here to tell you, that you have both good and bad karma in you. You have noticed this, haven’t you?

The good karma was gained through your good works, meditation and prayer on the Divine, right living, and a good positive mental attitude in BOTH this life and every other one you have ever lived.

This contributes to your ability to live the life you are currently living and to produce a more fruitful life in the future.

Your negative karma was from lying, cheating, stealing, abusing your body, saying unkind words, and most importantly, the thoughts you think!

Every repetitious action, no matter how good or bad, big or small, will accelerate the attractive process, leading towards a physical consequence in your world – whether good or bad.

Do you ever notice… that no matter how hard you work at something; someone else beats you to the punch or you end up falling short?

Or maybe some things come very easily to you.  Maybe you are extremely lucky, always have the right words to say, or can attract whatever money you need, when you need it.

We all have these predispositions, whether positive or negative, and they can either benefit or harm us. Some will propel you forward into great situations allowing you to succeed easily or some will provide challenge until breakdown.

The bottom line is… karma affects us all.

Past and present sin affects us all.

But what if you could live in a sin-free, karma-free world?  What would that look like?

Would it be a true utopian society, one where there is no danger, no violence, perfect kindness and understanding with unspoiled abundance for all?

Or would it be a place where people, no longer bound by their astrological tendencies, pursue a course of action, lifestyle, or career that truly serves them and the society around them?

I think the latter is more accurate.  The only true utopia is within. The real Kingdom of Heaven is cultivated within you by standing the test of time through trial and tribulation. Through this, karmic burn occurs.

As society progresses during this century and the next millennium, the spiritual consciousness of the entire world will increase monumentally.

You will begin to understand your true role in the world. This is to manifested individually the Divine nature; to experience Itself just for the sake of the experience.

The karma and sins we have collected need to be worked off, but only because we as the Divine (all of creation) want to get back to perfection.

This perfection is ultimately the burning of all our past garbage, baggage, and misdeeds.

Well, how do we do this?

I have provided a list of things, mentioned before in previous blog posts, but decided to collect it here for you in one easy place.

WORK

  1. Donate more of your time serving your family
  2. Donate more of your time serving your work and community
  3. Donate more of your time serving the less fortunate
  4. Donate more of your money towards serving your family, church, local community, and/or world community

SILENCE

  1. Set a time every morning and every evening where you just sit, pray, and meditate
  2. Find time in the middle of the day to just sit in silence
  3. Practice listening to your thoughts and replace negative thought patterns with positive ones
  4. Perform a pranayama breath-control technique like the Kriya

RELEASE

  1. Asking the Divine to help you perform Its will
  2. Have the courage to do think, say, act, and do the work you know is right

Good Works

In the Book of James of the Christian scripture, service is spoken as the greatest “work” that can be done in the name of the Divine.  In this case, the first four points are about “donating” your time or money towards a cause that is best suited for your situation.

If you don’t have a lot of money, then start donating your time first towards your family.  Then begin to branch out to those who are not within your immediate circle of family and close friends.  This includes co-workers and local community.

The next step would be to branch out to the global community. This could be done through doing work at your favorite church or spiritual community.  As these groups usually have events and other opportunities where you can donate your time to build, make, or organize something to help a group farmers or artisans from other parts of the world.

Silence is Key

For the next four points, silence is key no matter where you live and or what you do.  Silence is the way you will connect to the divine in your everyday life.  God can speak to us through the music of a church band, but more often and more completely through the silence and prayer after such intense devotion and worship.  This is the true time of communion.

Silence can occur in all kinds of forms.  If you are like me and you work in an environment where music is always playing, then you will need some sort of silence to break you away from “reality”.

In the morning and evening are best, because you can start and begin your day with true solitude.  Just you and the Creator.  During the day is more difficult, but it generally works better on a lunch break.

Also practice watching your thoughts. This is very crucial to burning karma because what you think, is what you become. In the silence, is where your greatest desires and greatest fears come to life. If you think negativity, then all you will attract is negative.  In this case, with negative thought processes, you will only attract more negative opportunities to create negative consequences. Positive, loving, joyful thoughts create the opposite.

Ultimately the fastest way to reach the highest peaks of self-realization is to practice a karma/sin-burning, breath-control, pranayama technique like the Kriya. I learned it through my guru’s organization, Self-Realization Fellowship.  But there are many groups out there that practice the kriya where you could learn it.  In the silence after performance of the kriya, many wonderful things can occur, but only with your dedication, can it be done.

Just let it all go

At the end of all this hard work, you might feel like a lot will happen all at once, allowing you to sky-rocket to self-realization without any struggle.  Believe me when I say that it does not work this way!

The only way that you can truly burn your karma and reach your goal is through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual release. You MUST be able to fully release your cares and worries to the Divine.  Without this surrender, the path is more arduous.  Will-power alone cannot help you.

So… in summary this is what you will need:

  • Hard work through will-power and determination
  • Silence through meditation, prayer, and yogic technique
  • Surrender to that which is higher than yourself

You don’t necessarily need to believe in a “god” to burn karma and become self-realized, but you do have to realize that this world is not random and that there is a purposeful drive behind the creation of the world.

Whether you are Christian, Agnostic, Buddhist, Hindu, Pagan, Jewish, or Islamic doesn’t matter.  It only matters where you are heart is.

Divine Blessings to you who embark on this path. I am here to help you guide, if you would like to comment, or you can send me an email at:
