A New Meditation
"Do not speak for those who can speak,
but speak for those who cannot.
We are not human beings having
a spiritual experience.
We are spiritual beings having
a human experience."
- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
You can never be lost.
When have you ever been apart from me?
You can never depart and never return.
For we are continuous, indistinguishable.

Christ executed for Truth.

There is no religion higher than the "Truth"
"We must serve consciously as caring role models,emphasizing the ethic of service,
not consumption."-Edelman, Marian Wright
"My passion is caring about those who don’t have enough to make it through life in society. It’s about poor people and families that need help raising their children. That’s why I come to work every day, that’s why I want to make a difference."- Vega-Marquiz,Luz
Acupunture~Acupressure~Chakra~Psychic Energy System~Reflexology
By "essence," I mean that part of our nature we recognize as the god in hiding, the source quality or soul quality that links us to our highest becoming, that transcends time and space, life and death.-Dr. Jean Houston
Illustrates how the vessels are in different locations than the acumeridian points. No traditional acupuncture point goes into an artery, vein or nerve. At death, blood flow stops, fields collapse, and leave no tubules behind. This explains why dissection never reveals meridians. They only exist in living organisms with fluid flow.
"The wise man [or woman] in the storm prays to God,
not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear.
It is the storm within that endangers him, not the storm without."- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The real does not die, the unreal never lived.
Once you know that death happens to the body and
not to you, you just watch your body falling off like a discarded garment.
"The real you is timeless and beyond birth and death.
The body will survive as long as it is needed.
It is not important that it should live long."- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Best is to die young and restless. Second best is to die old and content. Both are nearly impossible, but the first is easiest.
Time means the distance between two changes. The body is as a mere piece of clothing to the timeless. Your real wealth is to have yourself, and when you are prepared to be without support, your union with God will take place.- Buddhist author unknown
Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit. Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend, I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring.- Kahlil Gibran
I am a global citizen, a steward of Earth. No nation can claim my loyalty. Boundries and borders mean nothing to me. Say it with me now.
"All glory to this Supreme Creative Pulsation of Consciousness which is the abode of flashing, unparalleled delight, whose majesty of path extends to far regions, from the Earth up to Siva, which is variegated by the display of various states of creation, maintenance, and withdrawal; and of whose extension this universe is just a minute particle."- Ksemaraja. 10th C.
The goddess of the earth, who bore and married Uranus and became the mother of the Titans and the Cyclopes. Coined by James Lovelock theory that the planet earth is one giant organism, and that we do not share its consciousness because of our scaling (like the idea that our individual cells might be conscious but they (nor us) are not aware of the other's consciousness). We as humans, might be the equivalent of the individual neurons of our brain, forming a network of communication for the entire planet.
"Fractals are based on mathematical equations that never end, that is, no matter how much you enlarge the image, there is always the same amount of detail and a repetition of mathematically defined shapes in the enlarged image."- Brian Exton
Bambaeia~Experimental Dance~Kirtan~Praise & Salutations
The rhythm of hands
The heartbeat of drums
The rhythms of the universe
That which has been and will always be.
A sacred dance.
"We dance for laughter,
we dance for tears,
we dance for madnes,
we dance for fears,
we dance for hopes,
we dance for screams,
we are the dancers,
we create the dreams."-anonymous
Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time, man will have discovered fire.- Teilhard De Chardin
"When you no longer believe in your own limitation and youre out in the world doing what you love to do, asking for what you want, saying no when you want to say no, saying yes when you want to say yes, have the greatest self-esteem, the whole world will change."- Don Miguel Ruiz
Who Are the BirdTribes?
"We are the Bird Tribes,

We are the Gardeners

We are the people

and you will hear us
calling you back home."
Go where your body and soul want to go. When you have the feeling, then stay with it and dont let anyone throw you off. That is following your bliss.
If life is a journey, then philosophy is like a compass. It helps us to find our way through the jungle of possibilities that life presents.
The soul-searching pilgrim arrives on the mountain top, and his kundalini energy, the serpent power, begins to ascend within him. The caduceus or healing staff is internalized. The eye of God in the form of an angelic presence channels heart-opening flames of divine grace into his center, sending his body/mind into a state of God intoxication and mystical shock.
Love is like a mirror. When you love another you become his mirror and he becomes yours ....And reflecting each other's love you see infinity.- Leo Buscaglia
"The greatest poverty is to feel unwanted and unloved."- Henry D'Souza's view on Mother Theresa
La gnosis se puede
alcanzar por medio del sexo, acto conocido como el sex magick. Vente y haz un deseo.
"If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people."- Thich Nhat Hanh vietnamese buddhist monk
"Illness is not cured by saying the word 'medicine, ' but by taking medicine. Enlightenment is not achieved by repeating the word 'God' but by directly experiencing God. Talk as much philosophy as you like, worship as many gods as you please, observe as many ceremonies and sing devotional hymns, but liberation will never come, even after a hundred eons, without realizing Oneness, Wholeness."- Shankara
Jung wrote that when we look at others what we see is more ourself than the other. Herman Hesse made a similar observation about projection when he wrote: "If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us."
"One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions."-Oliver Wendell Holmes
The oversoul is a being who has spiritually evolved to the point where it is able to manifest many life forms simultaneously. Yet, the oversoul is a being who is yet evolving and who learns through the activities and actions of his created life forms, you being but one of many. This oversoul has an agenda, a goal, something in particular he is wanting to know, manifest, or express. The bigger picture is ascension and merger, the oversoul adheres to it.
"We are the great work of art in progress.
We, ourselves."- Dr. Rafael Montanez Ortiz, performance artist, educator
"Songs are emotions in sonic form and I had a lot of emotions at the time. And each of those emotions inspires its own sound."- Scott Weiland on recording "12 Bar Blues" album
"When I sing for God, I feel myself in accord with God, and the house of God, Mecca, is right in front of me. And I worship. When I sing for Mohammed, peace be upon him, our prophet, I feel like I am sitting right next to his tomb, Medina, and paying him respect and admitting to myself that I accept his message."- Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
You don't find Peace of Mind. You arrive at it in The Valley of....
“The person who regularly recites mantra attains liberation from the fears of disease and death.”-Yajur Veda quotes
“O mind, there is only the One medicine, mantra and healing herb - center your consciousness firmly on the One Lord. Take to the Lord, the Destroyer of the sins and karma of past incarnations.”-Sri Guru Granth Sahib
"A pure thought from a pure heart is better than a mantra."-Sri Sathya Sai Baba
“The mantra becomes one's staff of life and carries one through every ordeal. Each repetition has a new meaning, carrying you nearer and nearer to God."-Mahatma Gandhi
The soul incarnates by becoming karmically connected with the parents and choosing their sperm and egg. The soul oversees the biomolecular construction of a new body, and barring damaging influences, the new body will be nearly perfect. The embyological bloom of creation, starting as a single-celled zygote, miraculously unfolds into trillions of cells working harmoniously in the various systems of the body. This is a time of radical transformation for the incarnating soul, as well as for the new parents.
Having "fallen" into the manifest and material world, Spirit begins the process of returning to itself, and this process of the return of Spirit to Spirit is simply development or evolution itself. The original descent (or involution) is a forgetting, a fall, a self-alienation of Spirit; and the reverse movement of "ascent" (or evolution) is thus the self remembering and self-actualization of Spirit. And yet, the Idealists [ Friedrich Schelling & Georg Hegel] emphasized, all of Spirit is fully present at each and every stage of evolution as the process of evolution itself."- Ken Wilber "The marriage of Sense and Soul"
"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."-Aldous Huxley
When you were born you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.- Cherokee Proverb
"Birth and death represent the beginning and the end of individual life and are thus natural frontiers with the transpersonal domain not only in experiential work, but also in everyday life."- Stanislav Grof
"There is the mystic born each second to recall the longing to be loved.
It is us in this chorus of creation."-MDL
"When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race."-Margaret Sanger
Nursing is an art:
and if it is to be made an art,
It requires an exclusive devotion
as hard a preparation,
as any painter's or sculptor's work;
for what is the having to do with
dead canvas or dead marble,
compared with having to do
with the living body,
the temple of God's spirit?
It is one of the Fine Arts:
I had almost said,
the finest of Fine Arts.
- Florence Nightingale
Indigos are here to free us from our past limitations destroying everything that stands in the way of a unified future ultimately raising the vibration of the planet.
Adapted Biological Extended New Family
There is always hope in a new family. They face an uncertain future but they are grounded in pure devotional love. Their love binds them together in a braid of souls.
'We don't know who we are until we see what we can do."- Martha Grimes
"Myth comes alive as it enters the cauldron of evolution, itself drawing energy from the storytellers that shape it."- Elizabeth Fuller
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledgeB.
That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death.
"You shall observe the festival of harvest, of the first fruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall observe the festival of ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor."- Anonymous
Your Higher Self is the most perfect form of "you" that exists in the universe. It is always gently guiding you on your journey through life. It's guidance manifests itself in your life in many ways: as a still small voice, as vivid images, as flashes of insight, as intuition and knowingness.
"The whole of eternity is present in each moment.
When I live my life one moment at a time, one breath at a time,
I live from my Highest Self which is one with all
I am a child of the one light, a bridge between heaven and earth.
When love flows across that bridge, miracles happen".
"We are each of us angels with only one wing. And we can only fly embracing each other."- Luciano De Crescenzo
Kama Sutra~Tantric Sex
“Polarity or the sundering of a force into its equal and opposite halves, is a fundamental type of all the phenomenon of Nature, from the crystal and the magnet to man himself.”-Arthur Schopenhauer
It is my duty to lift you up to the infinite heights of bliss and yours
to take me down to the depths of your senses.... bringing together
these extremes opens the doors out of this mortal dimension and
stops time in order to feel the Infinite grace of the Universe......- J. Ram Sivananda to Chandi Devi
"The Union of Human and Divine Consciousness Weaving the Fabric of Space and Time in which the Self and its Surrounds are Embedded"- Alex Grey
“When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.”-Joseph Campbell
“Any revolution has to start with the transformation of the individual, otherwise individuals are corrupted by the power they get if their revolution succeeds.”-Wes Nisker
“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”- Marianne Williamson
“Anyone who expects a source of power from the transformation of the atom is talking moonshine”-Ernest Rutherford
Ashtanga Hatha Japa Kosher Yoga~Breathing Technique
Patanjali, the patron saint of yoga, said that mastery combines a balance of science and art. Knowledge of science is like the colors on an artists pallet the greater the knowledge, the more colors available. The body is the canvas and the asanas are the art we create.
"Yoga is a light which once lit, will never dim. The better you practice, the brighter the flame."- B.K.S. Iyengar
"Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind's eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees any one whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter light, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of light."- Plato (427 BC - 347 BC), The Republic
"Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished."-Michael Strassfeld
You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere.”-Buddhist Sayings
Out of the dynamic reach and range where all that
exists is alike in (not yet) having originated,
There emerges the majestic play of the wonderment of
pristine cognition beyond any duality
Self-existing primordial Mind-as-such .....
Nothing can be added to or subtracted from It.
May mind today find comfort and ease.
If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.- Mitsugi Saotome
“Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape.”-William S. Burroughs
"Where does one go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair."-T. S. Eliot
“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.”-Henri Nouwen
Self Hate~Endarkment of the Soul
“Hate is always a clash between our spirit and someone else's body.”-Cesar Pavese
"We have all some experience of a feeling, that comes over us occasionally, of what we are saying and doing having been said and done before, in a remote time – of our having been surrounded, dim ages ago, by the same faces, objects, and circumstances – of our knowing perfectly what will be said next, as if we suddenly remember it!"-Charles Dickens
"The nature of the mind is like a mirror which has the natural and inherent capacity to reflect whatever is set before it, whether beautiful or ugly; but these reflections in no way affect or modify the nature of the mirror. It is the same with the state of contemplation: There is nothing to correct or alter or modify. What the practitioner does when entering into comtemplation is simply to discover himself in the condition of the mirror."- Namkhai Norbu
If the path before you is clear, youre probably on someone elses.- Joseph Campbell
"As the years pass, all we need to achieve is there,
in the beginning, ready to be rediscovered. The deepest secret, the greatest prize and the holiest of grails is contained there, where it has always been, within our very existence, the essence of our being, our soul, our heart, our precious breath, this precious moment."-Suz
Today is my LIFE.
But only when
There will be TOMMOROW,
Can I hope.
“Were it not for hope the heart would break.”- Scottish Proverb
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens.”- Helen Keller
All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow motion, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.
Out of Body and Near Death Experience
"And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it."-Genesis 28:12
"Chiron means to me the principle of healing or wholemaking, on any level."- Erminie Lantero
"The image of the Wounded Healer is an evocative one which can easily be associated with the Chiron configuration in the horoscope...The Chiron configuration often describes what connects an individual with his or her inner suffering, and also a route through this to healing...By the same token the Chiron configuration also describes the nature of the healing that people may have to offer to others." -Melanie Reinhart
"Sleep itself is not ruled by Chiron. But, no matter what aspects of astrology you attribute to the rulership of sleep, Chiron does rule a very specific part of sleep - sleep as a healing tool."- Zane Stein
“There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with.”-Harry Crews
Nature of Mind~Quantum Hologram
Albert Einstein suggested: “The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical. It is the power of all art and science. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. In this sense, and this sense only, I belong to the ranks of devoutly religious men. A human being is part of the whole... he experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated form the rest - a kind of delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but striving for such an achievement is, in itself, a liberation.”
A New Start~Promise
“The supreme state of human love is...the unity of one soul in two bodies.”- Sri Auorbindo
“Whatever our souls are made of his and mine are the same. He is more myself than I am.”- Heathcliff
“We can resolve to cultivate our inner joy, something we all posses, hidden in our depth. Joy is our true nature, always present beneath the false coverings. The reach for the true self will help us to realize that we are whole beings, capable of finding satisfaction in our lives with or without the help of another.”- excerpt from Twinsouls by Patricia Joudry and Maurie Pressman, M.D.
"The pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts: and the great art of life is to have as many of them as possible."- Montaigne
Man is simply a collection of "molecules" and "can be understood in terms of molecules."-Linus Pauling
Out of the cradle, onto dry land, Here it is standing, atoms with consciouness, matter with curiousity.-Richard Feynman
"There is only a moment between sitting on one throne, or kneeling before another. Chance conquers us, unbless we conquer it. The happy life is one thathas been established slowly and steadyly on correct judgment."- Seneca
"As long as I can remember, I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand."- Bruce Lee
“As adults, we must ask more of our children than they know how to ask of themselves. What can we do to foster their open-hearted hopefulness, engage their need to collaborate, be an incentive to utilize their natural competency and compassion...show them ways they can connect, reach out, weave themselves into the web of relationships that is called community.”- Dawna Markova
The mantra Om (or Aum) has been handed down to us by the Himalayan sages. It is the most important mantra of Yoga. According to tradition, every 'thing' manifest comes from Primordial Vibration, which is symbolised by Om: all material objects, all living beings, including each of us, all spiritual teachings, including Yoga, all languages, including Sanskrit, all scriptures, including the Vedas, everything.
Everything has come out of Primordial Vibration, which is represented by Om.
"We are not different people with separate languages; we are one people, with different tongues."-Nelson Mandela
"Forget not that the earth likes to feel your bare feet
and the winds long to play with your hair."-Kahlil Gibran
Entheogens~Plants of the Gods
Shamanic use of plant-based hallucinogens--including cannabis, mushrooms, peyote, and ayahuasca--was central to the religious lives of people in parts of African, China, India, Tibet, Siberia, Mediterranean Europe, and
the Americas. To the shaman with expertise in their use, the experience that rational science interprets as hallucination is an interdimensional interaction with super-natural beings and visible, sometimes audible energy forms--in other words, nothing short of a direct encounter with God or gods.
Through psychedelics we are learning that God is not an idea, God is a lost continent in the human mind. That continent has been rediscovered in a time of great peril for ourselves and our world.-Terence McKenna
The true meaning of the precepts is not just that one should refrain from drinking alcohol,
but also from getting drunk on nirvana.-Bassui
“I love drinking now and then. It defecates the standing pool of thought. A man perpetually in the paroxysm and fears of inebriety is like a half-drowned stupid wretch condemned to labor unceasingly in water; but a now-and-then tribute to Bacchus is like the cold bath, bracing and invigorating.”-Robert Burns
Note:Remember, when you’ve had one two many (drinks), everyone in the bar is your friend and your brother. Except the women. Women will always be sisters. We don’t $#*% on our sisters or else our big brothers will pound us into the corner. Capishe?
A tree is known by its fruit;
a man by his deeds.
A good deed is never lost;
he who sows courtesy
and he who plants kindness
gathers love.- Basil

Inspiration for the Mind
When a man kills a bird he kills a song. When he kills a song he kills himself.
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."- Maya Angelou
Prof. Tenhaeff insisted that man was merely an older brother of animals and had no right to kill and devour them.
"What you eat cannot purify your mind - but is there greed behind your choice of eating?
If yes, the mind that eats is not pure - be your choice vegetarian or not."-Stonepeace
In the world of bullfighting, when the bull is killed it is a sport but when the bull kills the man it’s called murder??? Please think about it!
Matamorphosis is more than just transformation. It is the transmutation from one state of being to another. A coming into being of something new. The archetypal paradigm in the nature kingdom is the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly, but there are many other such examples. In Egyptian mythology the scarab beetle is chosen instead of the butterfly, but the basic idea is the same.
Lotus-Flower Oil Essence
“Humans have long considered psychoactive plants as teachers. This book seeks to inform westerners about this powerful plants and about the shamans who know how to use them. Their words are clear and simple and often based on personal experience. The result is an accessible book packed with knowledge.”- Jeremy Narby, author of Cosmic Serpent
The lotus does not consciously choose when to blossom, it just unfurls its petals towards the sun when the time is ripe.
If you are enlightened you know God's oneness, you know that God is devoid of bodily categories these can never be applied to God. Then you wonder astonished: Who am I? I am a mustard seed in the middle of the sphere of the moon, which itself is a mustard seed within the next sphere. So it is with that sphere and all it contains in relation to the next sphere. So it is with all the spheres one inside the other and all of them are a mustard seed within the further expanses. And all of these are a mustard seed within further expanses.- The Essential Kabbalah, Daniel C. Matt
We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh.-Agnes Repplier
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.-Thich Nhat Hanh
“The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.”- W. M. Lewis
“You can't reason with the heart; it has its own laws, and thumps about things which the intellect scorns.”-Mark Twain
“There is no art in turning a goddess into a witch, a virgin into a whore, but the opposite operation, to give dignity to what has been scorned, to make the degraded disireable, that calls for art or for character.”-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
As human beings, we are hardwired to experience Ecstasy, Epiphany, Laughter
and Bliss. Little children twirling in the summer sun to experience the
altered state of becoming falling-down-dizzy are not very far removed from
whirling dervishes seeking spiritual attunement with the harmonious spin of
the planet. If the pull upward into ecstasy is mighty, human frailties
dictate that the ascent will be an imperfect one, with use sometimes leading
to the hell of abuse.- Lonnae O'Neal Parker
Deities and Demons
I had a vision of the group soul of humanity as a perfectly circular pool of intense living light. All around the rim of the milky pool were a complex variety of sexual rites, a metaphor for all social interaction. Translucent Hindu deities swooped over the group taking the excessive energy of the shimmering pool and passing through the group as ecstasy and pain. I saw that the reason we were all brought together was to provide a psychic energy feast for the Gods and Goddesses. I saw my heart as the axis of karmic, earthly, and universal energies, transected by and uniting the polarities of male/female, birth/death, good/evil, and love/hate. To maintain a balance of forces we all fed both Deities and Demons.-Alex Grey
Void Clear Light
Buddhists speak of the Void and Clear Light existing together. The Kalachakra symbol in the center, which is about transmutation of the elements by the principle of emptiness. That's why it is surrounded by the elements of earth, fire, wind and water.
"Thine own consciousness, shining, void, and inseparable from the Great Body of Radiance, hath no birth, nor death, and is the Immutable Boundless Light."~Padmasambhava,
The Tibetan Book of the Dead
Keep your mind, through all sensual experiences in the bardo of duality, on the clear light of reality, on truth, kindness, brightness, inspiration - anything that brings you above the realm of the senses.
The Tibetan Book of the Dead is very hard to understand in that it is written mainly in symbols. It is an instruction guide, a series of meditation practices at the time of death. To be honest with you, only someone fairly adept in yogic practice can pull it off.
...can only be effectuated by Man himself, out of free decision, out of will. In order for the layers to become steps, a person must create the continuity intentionally. It does not happen automatically, but requires effort, will and attention. The different traditions have chosen different forms, but in the last analysis they all say the same thing: the seven points of gravity should come into harmony, not unisonce.-Arnold Keyserling
Adam and Eve~Creation~Genesis
This Thy body Love, These Thy hands
These Thy thoughts Love
This Thy dance.
There is only one Tree,
There is only One Garden,
There is only One Man,
There is only One Woman,
There is only One Apple,
The One you are eating.
There is only One Life,
The One you're Living.
There is only You.

“After all, to us, everyone is an alien.”- Charlie Little Tree
In the beginning was the Mother.
As far back as 30,000 years ago, the people of the earth worshipped a female deity. In cultures around the world, the Goddess has been revered in myriad forms, in temple and grove, cathedral and cave. She has been celebrated and venerated through ritual, myth, and art. These pages serve as introduction to some of the 10,000 names of the Goddess.
The path of Goddess is not defined or laid down in dogma. It is a living, daily connection with sacredness. There is literally no end to the ways in which you can find and honor Goddess. The Goddess is Gaia, the earth ... Ix Chel, the moon ... Arianrhod, the stars. She is Oya, who brings the storms, and she is Mary, who calms them. She is Nut, who births creation, and Kali, who destroys it. She is maiden, mother, queen and crone. She is lover and spinster, warrior and sibyl, nurturer and judge.
Once She has called your name,
you are Hers forever.
Sophia is God's sharing of himself with creatures. His outpouring, and the Love by which he is given, held and loved.
She is in all things like the air receiving the sunlight. In her they prosper. In her they glorify God. In her they rejoice to reflect him. In her they are united with him. She is the union between them. She is the Love that unites them. She is life as communion, life as thanksgiving, life as praise, life as festival, life as glory . . . She is the Bride and the Feast and the Wedding.- Thomas Merton
“The world is nothing but God. It is God who manifest as the countless forms and shapes which you see around in this world. It is God who has become you…”-Swami Muktananda
“The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him, for he cannot bear scorn”-Martin Luther
The Vajra is a sacred symbol in Buddhist tantra. The vajra is often compared to a weapon such as a sceptre or spear, or a diamond, for the vajra symbolises strength and incapability of destruction.
The heart vajra, with eyes in golden flames, is a symbol of the unborn, undying, indestructible spirit, or Buddha Nature, around which the anatomical, biological, and psychical dynamism of life comes to form.- from Alex Grey's Transfigurations
The Avatar's Advent
Age after age the Avatar comes amidst mankind to
maintain his own creation of illusion, thereby also
awakening humanity to awareness of it.
The framework of illusion is always one and the
same, but the designs in illusion are innumerable
and ever-changing. My advent is not to destroy
illusion because illusion, as it is, is absolutely
nothing. I come to make you become aware of the
nothingness of illusion.
Through you I automatically maintain illusion
which is nothing but the shadow of my infinite
Self, and through me you automatically discard
illusion when you experience its falseness.
...It is the trinity of man himself, of his way to becoming immortal through the solemn union of his inner triune self. It is when this trinity, in anticipation of the final triumphant reunion beyond the gates of corporal death become for a few seconds a unity, that the candidate is allowed, at the moment of initiations, to behold his future self...
...It is not possible to reveal this, as it must remain a mystery to the world so long as the materialistic savant regards it as an undemonstrated fallacy and insane hallucination, and even to the dogmatic theologian, a snare of the Evil One...- Plato
"The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists -- in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record."- Amiel, Henri Frederic
"In it he proves that all things are true and states how the truths of all contradictions may be reconciled physically, such as for example that white is black and black is white; that one can be and not be at the same time; that there can be hills without valleys; that nothingness is something and that everything, which is, is not. But take note that he proves all these unheard-of paradoxes without any fallacious or sophistical reasoning."- Bergerac, Savinien Cyrano De
"All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher."- Ambrose Bierce
Heaven is home to the most advanced biotechnology in the universe,
specializing in creation, healing, and management of bodies and souls.
The Realm of Heaven is inhabited by various angels and celestial beings,
and is guarded by a pair of righteous archangels at the Gates of Heaven.
Stolen moments of perfection. Every summer has its zenith, its perfect moment. For anyone who has been there, they know Shambhala/Shangri-La cannot be matched—it is the greatest experience of a lifetime.
Shambhala is a legendary mystical, magical city in the Himalayas, a place that exists beyond time and space. The literary doppelganger for Shambhala is Shangri-la, the mountain paradise in James Hilton's book Lost Horizon. Frank Capra made an excellent movie, Lost Horizon (1937), that captures the spiritual essences of this symbolic and so-called romantic fiction story.
“You grow to heaven. You don’t go to heaven.”- Edgar Cayce
"One can never share a vision without unfolding the philosophies of personal alchemy. Likewise, and in the truest sense, each and every vision of informative nature is a philosophy of personal alchemy..."- San Graal
"As long as there is true bowing, the Buddha Way will not deteriorate."- Dogen Zenji
In other words, as long as we can fully recognise the goodness of others, and can focus ourselves fully in paying homage to that, without any thoughts of self-interest or ulterior motives, but to pay our respects wholeheartedly, we are very close to the enlightened state of mind, which is the focus of Buddhist practice.
Tantric teachings say that the infinite compassion of the Bodhisattva is the same as Voidness. This is one of the highest teachings, the understanding that boundless love is the ground of being from which all things come. The Void represents how far one can go to get off the Wheel of Life. You can go to Voidness and dwell there, or the Universal Mind Lattice, and dwell there.....to me, the highest teachings are those that speak of returning to aid the suffering of the world. That's what Avalokitesvara did, sprouting a thousand arms and hands to help the world with an eye of unobstructed vision in each palm.

"Sacred Geometry exists in the patterns of natural forms and is the mystic language of the universe. Spiritual traditions the world over use geometry to express the transcendent in architecture, temples, and religious art."
The Reiki master symbol, learned in advanced Reiki training, represents a great beaming light. While the source of healing light is often perceived as being outside ourselves, its true location is within.
It is actually our own true nature that can be experienced during deep meditation.
“There is a Light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the Light that shines in our heart.”- Chandogya Upanishad
Oh Thou, from Whom all things proceed,
To Whom all things return,
Reveal to us the face of the True, Spiritual Sun,
Hidden by a disc of golden Light,
That we may know the Truth and do our whole duty
As we journey to - Thy sacred, Lotus feet.
Zen is Taoism disquised as Buddhism. When twelve hundred years of Buddhist accretions are removed from Zen, it is revealed to be a direct evolution of the spirit of Taoism. indeed, the literature known as the Lau Tsu and the Chuang Tzu begins a continuous tradition that can be followed through the Ch'an of China to the Zen of present day Japan. The formative writings of Taoism are essentially the teachings of Zen.
Zen Buddhism is a way and a view of life which does not belong to any of the formal categories of modern Western thought. It is not religion or philosophy; it is not a psychology or a type of science. It is an example of what is known in India and China as a "way of liberation," and is similar in this respect to Taoism, Vendanta, and Yoga.
A way of liberation can have no positive definition. It has to be suggested by saying what is not, somewhat as a sculptor reveals an image by the act of removing pieces of stone from a block.
“Strive to always do what is right - not in the eyes of others, but in your own heart. Others' thoughts are transitory - one moment they will love you, the next they will not. Act on what is right in your own heart and there will be victory.”
“Experience all things with the enthusiasm of a child, as if you were seeing it for the first time. This is the Zen mind, always new, always that of a beginner.”- Daniel B. Levin
The World Prayer Wheel will be a geodesic stained glass world globe incorporating a network of eyes through the grid to symbolize the collective consciousness of the planet. The World Prayer Wheel will be supported by a gridwork of devotional and healing prayers from all wisdom paths, inviting each visitor to turn the wheel and offer their own prayers and energy to make the world go 'round.
And on and on and on and on ...And I'm not done yet! To be continued....
