Cosmic Joke, Liberation & Afterlife 2

my unedited personal notes:

Opening Thoughts: The Supreme Court, Ancient Egypts Right and Left Hands

 Insight vs. Projection, Celestial vs. Astral, Free Will vs. Predetermination

I will respond to the following two comments:  

Hello Michaelji,

 I’ve been thinking about the afterlife a lot in the past couple of years, since I’m getting older and the body is beginning to fall apart. It just seems to do that, no matter how clean or wholistic a life you’ve led. Now I wish I’d had more ice cream. Question is, do we have any control where we go after we leave the body? Many NDE’ers go directly to the void and bypass the astral altogether. To me that seems to be the better option, I don’t quite trust the astral characters. Also wondering what you think of people who practice out of body trips on purpose, not near death experiences? Sounds a bit risky to me. Thank you, I really enjoyed this podcast.

Hello Michael,

Is it alright if I ask you a question? I have been having experiences where I can see how I am projecting onto people and things. I realized the other day in traffic as I looked at a McDonald’s that I had even been projecting onto how I had always seen McDonald’s. It was like a light film of my own perception that had nothing to do with the franchise. I wrote about it in a blog. But since I have put it down in words, I have had a pit in my stomach. The pit is a feeling that nothing I feel is real. So every time I feel something, I don’t know if it is real. I am now questioning everything I feel. I know it is about relationship with, but it goes into my belief that what I feel is not valid. I know I need to figure this out on my own, and I know other people don’t have my conditioning around what they feel. But how do you move forward when nothing makes sense?

Thank you! Great Podcasts

How to Develop Your Mind

blurb:   Enlightenment is the Easy Part. 

my unedited personal notes:

Opening Thoughts:  climate change, the mid ’70s and now, modern physics fiasco and the upcoming re-alignment, here we address delicate issues so the exploration is yours.

the key to integrated awareness…    culturing the awareness

Everything maps onto everything else.  It is all right there in ‘how to play the piano’

what they don’t tell you about liberation

body of mud, body of crystal

As in music: what key are you playing in? 

What is in harmony with nature and how to find it

you are unique, and there is mother nature

your truth or your ‘stuff’/issues

healthy relationship with learning to ride a bike

field theory and the key of the music

the formula and the dance on the scale

Culturing your groove.

modern times expanded sphere of influence.

can we play in all keys?  In other words: Who are you?

boat in the water, no water in the boat.

Cultured/Developed vs Narrow minded

What is freedom?

What are roots?

The Inner Grandmother:  What is the deeper meaning of:

A saint was asked: “My mother does not know about healthy food.  What should I eat?  

He answered: “Ask your grandmother”

Hint:  It is not about food, or your grandmother.

A great saint made a comment about a well-known spiritual figure:

“He is a young avatar… Stay away from him”

Liberation is the easy part, but you can start working on the hard part now.

This all relates to:

How to find your passion.

How to find your friends.

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. “
ELEANOR ROOSEVELT

The deeper meaning of the following quote:

“As for myself, I met with as much success as I ever could have wanted. 

In other words, I was enthusiastically run-down by every critic of the period.”

How Not to Destroy Relationships

Rare But Essential Knowledge: Mahabharata Revisited

emotional stability:  be it international or interpersonal:  emotional maturity

kindness is the greatest gift

keep your balance, otherwise don’t speak until you gain balance and then speak

holding it in until you explode is not a good strategy!!

speak sweetly, kindly, wisely and you can say almost anything…. communion/communication… 

be constructive…   don’t lose yourself over the little things

the key to healthy relationships: learn to talk with stability while pressured… the rare art of expressing yourself wisely

human beings [all of us] are incredibly vulnerable creatures…

a kiss does not make up for a cut/punch… speak responsibly or say nothing until you can find a better way

healthy communication takes effort….  and when you are tired and want to not effort, alone at home with family, most important to be attentive to the relationships

worst time to speak is when you are angry

get in touch with your ACTUAL motivation.  you are often not angry about what you think you are angry about

anger is just a shroud for hurt

you can say what you need to say IF you can keep your balance

confrontation vs communion… the key is staying stable, in BALANCE

projection vs perception

 taking a deeper look at: ‘faith in god gives life meaning’…  the essence of ‘faith’ is inner knowing.  Know what you know and strive to understand it better.

 World History is an accounting of emotional instability.

Clouds part for each of us on only certain portions of the sky…. e.g. Bobby Fischer

please visit ‘Mystery History’ on YouTube 

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
GEORGE ORWELL
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Pashya: “See”: Just Look and See

blog:

 my unedited personal notes:

 ‘Subtle Sight’ in higher states of consciousness

Dharana of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras… effortless focus…

Pashya…  ‘see’, but what/who really sees?

is there really such a thing a subtle sight?

tired minds: lackadaisical minds give lackadaisical results

There’s always a ‘new kid in town’, drugs and torn open ‘third eyes’

Depths of the human psyche…  Bats, Flying Monkeys, and the Wizard of Oz

Somebody should write the book ‘How to manipulate mass mentality’… a plethora of modern and historical references to choose from… covers spectrum from world history to local and interpersonal history

Essential emotional stability

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.”

Beyond “Trance States”

my unedited personal notes:

my search for a personal assistant – need to write more, etc.

sound healing:   https://www.vedicsound.org/

these podcasts often build upon previous ones.  

nurture people for what they have as opposed to judging them for what they don’t have.  do your best to understand them and speak to them accordingly.  not as easy as it sounds

the teacher can only suggest or point in a direction.  the rest is up to the student.

 yet it takes pressure to make a diamond.  push but only so much.

at the same time: 

someone said my podcasts are too deep and people have a hard time understanding them. my interest is not in popularity via superficiality but rather is for people who do want and need a deeper level of understanding. It is best to take not understanding as an invitation to pursue not a discouragement or criticism.  My heart goes out to those who need and long for a deeper knowledge when it is not available.  Relying on the knowledge I have been given integrated with my own experience, I offer to the best of my ability, whatever insights I have.  There are great scholars out there and I rely upon their insights, but discernment as Adi Shandara said, is the path.  We must discern the level of the people they are addressing at any given time. Even the greatest master can target the average level of consciousness.  My goal is twofold:  1] build the enlightened city and 2] provide the deepest understanding I can… direct and undiluted.

He who has no name.  Beyond perspective.

It’s not just about new thoughts, but rather a new way of thinking.

Two human needs:  communion and privacy

It’s not about over thinking but perhaps just sitting with it. To be interested solely in technique would be a very superficial thing to me.”

The Creative Mind; Miracles Revealed

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is VC-01-20-24-resized-768x1024.jpg

It’s not the thought; It’s the process

Knowledge in the gap; feeling into the Brahmanas

blog: 

my unedited personal notes:

why there are multiple versions of the Sanskrit letters

‘meditation’ becoming acceptable word

qubits vs bits and beyond.

hopf… suggestion: go to YouTube and search “hopf”.  

no need to intellectually figure out/understand the hopf videos… feel it… feeling as basis of reason as basis of thought

yantra means ‘machine’…   usually seen as picture [2d] or pyramid [3d] but really multidimensional in absolute

how to perform miracles and why it seldom works

technology of unified field is yagya… personal evolution, havans 

 we are part of nature: people speaking is nature speaking. … culture.

words spoken privately are words spoken most loudly… most influentially

cosmic computer… intention is the trigger

in-sight

Brahman Consciousness Fast Track

opening:

clean the fish bowl is the only solution

if thousands of years of history has proven one thing, it is that current approaches to world peace do not work: clean the fish bowl is the only answer:  Mt Soma is dedicated to that; residents gain liberation in the process

Kamila Valieva Russian skater

blog: 

This week’s unedited notes randomly collected, loosely or directly related to this week’s podcast:

‘bounded’ works here in place of ‘small’:

scripture, cognition, teaching, movement,  

both eternal and changing

 Maharishi: ‘These are Brahma Sūtras (sūtras about Brahman), not Jagat sūtras (sūtras about the world).’

you are Brahma   

“I am Brahma[n]”

The World Reveals Brahman

pashya: ’see’ and early Brahma Chaitanya [Brahman Consciousness]

K + A = KA, manifest [consonates] are rooted in unbounded [unmanifest]

without the observer, there is no pillow

Ramayana in the Physiology:

Ravana:  specificity [space, time, etc.] ultimately a misunderstanding about reality, Rama restores Absolute in awareness… why Lanka is so beautiful

projection/perception:  our sensory functions project a ‘reality’ onto the Absolute; Brahman is all of this together: a level of consciousness, not a ‘thing’.  point of view creates ones ‘reality’ [e.g. science, religion, business, music, etc.]; is physiological as well determined by karma as education, heritage, etc. [dynamics of structure of physiology], can view from any perspective and is fine if it ultimately meets all other perspectives

Bhagavad Gita 9.8:  curving back on myself I create over and over again

Trimutri and Prakritis: structure, function, purpose:

what defines silence [Shiva] is sound [Parvati], everything is creation is Parvati [Prakriti], She is every structure that defines every space. Parvati is Prakriti of Shiva

Vishnu dynamism, function is Lakshmi… Prakriti of Vishnu:dynamism is Lakshmi:function

Brahma Knowledge Prakriti is Saraswati Organizing Power [Plan] …  House has a function but how to use it is a plan. Brahma holds the 4 Veda… logic, plan 

Purusha is all of them together:  they are all the same thing seen from different perspectives/realities

Ram is Brahm… Totality… The embodiment of Chaitanya [the Absolute]… the 50% of Vishnu: the embodiment of the other parts, the other 50%…. takes all values and puts them together in their full value in wholeness

This is full; that is full.  from Fullness comes Fullness Upanishad from Shukla Yajur Veda

My universe is my self

Atma is subjective, personal, individual: yet in a wholistic or collective manner/way.  

experience atma as the field of sensory perception

  Silence, or space, is found as Shiva.

He Who Has No Name observes without bias the illusion

Consciousness is Brahman (Prajnanam Brahma). 

 Upanishad 3.1.3

Where is the Light of God?

This week’s unedited notes randomly collected, loosely or directly related to this week’s podcast:

announcements:

Gun Violence: the only solution

remodeling kitchen so no food service at Mt Soma for a while.

Gyan is foundation of success.  

———

Subtlety Within Words is Everything   Aham Vishvam   My universe is myself [Brahman Viewpoint] … vs I am the universe.  [Relative Viewpoint; Taittiriya Upanishad 3.10   Brahman Consciousness [Brahmi Chetana] in a Nutshell

Pragyanam Brahma— fully awake consciousness [knowledge] is Brahman

God’s Will Manifests through you, as you.   People think of the Light of God [God’s Will] as something outside in themselves. The Light of God emerges within people…. through their hearts through their determination through the light in their eye, through a commitment to the Purity underlying their ideals.  God’s will emerges within you, as you, as your thoughts, as your feelings….   the clearer the vessel, the fuller the expression.  God’s Will is found within you, as you.  It does not lie outside yourself but rather IS your True Self.: Atma Support of Nature flows within you.  We have only to clear the vessel.

The Gold is in your backyard, i.e. within you.

the physiology is the veda… shareer  

Why the enlightened are not easy to understand:

what is “this’?  What is “that”?  In enlightenment, what was ‘this’ becomes ‘that’ and what was ‘that’’ becomes ‘this’.  God is closer than people think.

For him who does not know being [the transcendent] what can the hymns of Veda accomplish?

what lies beyond [not born of] the mind… cosmic intelligence… foundation of natural thoughts… in harmony with nature.  

knowledge/experience

Consciousness is Brahman (Prajnanam Brahma). 

 Aitareya Upanishad 3.1.3

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”
