The Truth About Bhakti: The Spiritual Path of Devotion

This is a very delicate topic, so much so that it is often not discussed.  But here we attempt to do so. Please understand this to be a humble invitation to reflect on your own.  Nothing more.  It is a suggestion not to label or judge, but merely to always look deeper.  As Adi Shankara said, the spiritual path is the path of discernment.  Perhaps you may consider this is the ultimate ancient secret, yet more often than not ignored.

Its Gotta Make Sense: The Razors Edge of Life

Be it religion, economics, or building a shed in the backyard; life just works better when it makes sense.  But that is easier said than done.  What does ‘sense’ mean anyway?  We take a look at ‘sense’ from various angles as it applies to different fields of life.  We explore that ancient secret, what it all means and how to live it.  We will also take a quick look at some interesting developments in physics.To listen to the podcast, please click here.

 Please note:  In this podcast when I briefly talked about physics, I talked about particles in space draining energy from light.  In the moment, I knew I was forgetting to say something more but could not recall what that was.  Very simply, when energy is drained from light, the frequency of the light is reduced.  So the idea is that it is not because the universe is expanding that the frequency of the light goes down, but rather that the frequency reduction is the result of the drain of energy (for those interested the formula is: energy equals frequency times planck’s constant or simply that energy and frequency are directly proportional).

Coronavirus Perspectives

I have been receiving lots of comments and opinions regarding my coronavirus podcasts and blogs. I must say that I respect every comment I have received so far. They have been thoughtful, well written, sincere, and educated. A number of health care professionals have commented and it is interesting to note that even among them opinions varied widely.

I did post the first one, however please forgive me, but I am not going to post them all and here is why: The purpose of the blogs and podcasts regarding the virus goes deeper than just the opinions and perspectives. I do not want the forest to be lost to the trees. My point is about the application of the knowledge I offer (paradigm identity, etc.) to life, particularly when the issues are emotionally charged.

You see, I have witnessed through the years that many people love the spiritual depth of my teachings until emotions and identities get threatened. It is easy to be deep and spiritual when everything is rosy, but what about when it really matters. How do we behave then?

Spirituality is about expanded awareness. Spirituality is the vessel that holds all perspectives, paradigms, emotions, and thoughts in wisdom and insight. This of course applies not only to the Coronavirus, but to everything, for example: the border wall, economics, sexuality, politics, religion, race relations, personal and interpersonal relationships etc.

I believe Buddha called it ‘the middle way’. But as with all deep spiritual teachings, how people interpret ‘the middle way’ is all over the place, diverse and more often confused than understood.

Here is another quote for you: “The only true knowing is knowing that you know nothing.” Wisdom lies in the transcendental field of ‘no-thing-ness’. Yet most are very uncomfortable with that when it matters most. Instead we grasp at the straws of thingness and insist it is “the truth”.

How about, “paradox is the nature of existence”—simultaneously valid yet contradictory realities. At one point I encourage you to ‘take a stand’. At another point, I say we know nothing. To understand this, think “reality continuum”. Are we One, or are we separate? Wisdom is the integration of polar opposites. It is the field of extremes in conflict and contradiction held in the equanimity of balance and harmony… passion and dispassion together simultaneously. Opinions not held in the context of wisdom cause narrow vision, judgement, anger, hatred, and all this world’s problems.

So again I say that I was impressed by the mature manner in which the comments and opinions were expressed. I am not saying that the makers of those points were wrong or out of balance… not at all. In fact, I respect those people for ‘taking a stand’. Yet in the context of purpose of my blogs, podcasts, teachings, and my very life, those comments, I fear, would take us off point. Therefore, I will not be posting them as they may serve to only cloud the points I try over and over again to make about the nature of true spirituality.

Spiritual Knowledge… What good is it? 🙀

Ok, Ok, Yes I agree that knowledge and practice of knowledge such as mantras, japa, meditation, pujas, havens, etc. is of great value in that they refine the physiology, culture the heart, and thereby evolve us.  🧚‍♀️

But I am talking about intellectual understanding here and, even more importantly, the integration of that knowledge into your behavior.  In my podcasts for example, so many listened to the podcasts on paradigm identity, reality continuum, and mapping and some felt confident that they knew all about it.  You may have even found the topic boring since you had already heard about it.  But then in the podcasts about the enlightened city and coronavirus you do well to ask yourself if you thought and felt along the lines of those principles or just fell back on your old paradigm identity and evaluated everything based upon that identity.  For example, was the notion of positive attracts negative just not acceptible by your paradigm identity?  How about the notion of mapping an enlightened city onto a nation?  Or how about different perspectives on the coronavirus?  In my conversations with people, I have seen how few are able to do look beyond their paradigm identity.  👁

Also in daily life in general, how many behave with wisdom and reflection?  How many still act instinctively and spontaneously based upon their emotional and psychological programming?  In particular when life becomes challenging, how many behave not in accord with their inner wisdom but rather upon the rakshasa value that dwells within—perhaps anger, judgement or even hatred?  Suddenly ones true spiritual level comes into question.  Yes?  😡

Keep in mind that knowing all about spirituality is a good beginning often mistaken for the goal.  If you choose to white knuckle onto your judgements and hostilities, they will, of course, stay with you longer.  Expansion of awareness, of consciousness, is no simplistic task.  It is the journey of the true hero.  There is no way around that.  Attacking anything you do not feel one with is not the path to unity.  Learn to under-stand and not over-stand.  Humility is the flip side of wisdom.  I have said all these things before.  But every indidvidual does well of take a step back and observe their own behavior.  How quickly the peace and love attitude morphs into antifa. 🤯

 Please keep in mind that this is Kali Yuga—the age when the rakshasas dwell within the hearts and minds of the people.  It is not so hard to believe that about other people.  But the most important person to know and work with in that regard is yourself.  😱

We just posted another podcast called Coronavirus: Taking a stand.  It would be a good exercise to explore where you go with it in light of what has been said here.  You can access that podcast by clicking here. 🙏

Paradigms and the Mapping Key

The paradigm with which a person is identified is like a rubberband. With new insights, the paradigm can be stretched, and though the stretching may feel very good, the rubberband-like identity springs right back to where it was. Through the years it has astounded me to witness how adamant people are about their paradigm identities. So many times people have come up to me, after one of my lectures thrilled them, to say they have been looking for those teachings their whole life and that they would never miss another lecture or class. Then they walk out the lecture hall door, snap back into their old paradigm identity, never to be seen again!

Maharishi Patanjali said it so well: The Chit (storehouse of impressions) is as if etched in stone. The resultant paradigm is fixed and inflexible. Yet as one evolves, one becomes more flexible and can align with the paradigm that best serves the moment. To truly embrace the Ancient Secrets of the Masters is to become flexible—to easily embrace other paradigms.

Ancient paradigms involved the principle of mapping in very profound ways. Havans and pPujas are based upon the principle. Ancient technologies apply the principle. Mount Soma is built upon the mapping principle of how a city/community can be constructed in a manner to map onto the country. To heal the country is to build and operate that community.

It has been remarkable to experience how powerful that technology, the mapping, is. To build Mount Soma, we followed the ancient vastu guidelines and anyone at Mount Soma who follows the news can see how powerful that connection is. As Mount Soma flourishes, the country will flourish. This is what the ancients taught and it is what we are in the process of accomplishing.
