Ascension: Levels of Consciousness

It is easy to talk about universal consciousness, galactic and multi-dimensional awakening from a personal point of view. In practicality awakening is a tremendously painful process when experienced ‘locally’ (this term locally came from not me but the spirit team). Thanks to them I do not need grammarly to correct my sentences.

For most people starting our in spirituality, the primary focus is on their personal aura, their inner peace, their healing from negativity, their emotional wellbeing and private mind-fulness. They learn how to channel reiki or energy for personal benefit, to heal their cells, to reduce symptoms of diseases first, perhaps a headache we are feeling or sensing now all of a suddenly, like I am at the back of the left side of my head (and I am asked to type that too), when we are on our smartphones, computers or wifi systems (which is a huge ource of headaches actually if we pay attention to it…develop sensitivity). Then we try healing our surroundings such as their personal crystals, which some people also use for personal relaxation and peace (until we do not any more). Listening to soothing sounds, music, positive mantras, satsangas (courses and discourses) from gurus and masters who speak soothing and enlightening words in meditative tone is hypnotic and beautiful. It helps us feel aligned with a higher consciousness, by taking a few minutes off the daily thinking process that our mind is constantly being engaged in – plugged into.

This reminds me of satsangas from various highly enlightened masters that I had attened several years ago, one being Osho Siddharth and Osho Shailendra (biological brother of Osho Rajneesh and their commune partners) and another being Brahmarshi Patriji of Pyramid Spiritual Societies movement, both of which I had joined if only for a while. In their satsangas never felt like there is someone ‘else’ talking to me, only that they were saying, infact- word to word, my thoughts, as if telepathicaly, and it always felt very strange and like a lucid dream, where my mind is revealed to me exactly as is…every word, and every gap between two words, exactly so…a mirror. The entire one hour to several hours plus satsangas actually were a tremendous streaming of consciousness flowing as if from my own mind but in their ovice. They were not the only ones though, many teachers, spiritualists, have felt the same, like they were inside me in my mind. There is never a difference of thought or opinion at all on one hand, which is good as no conflict ever arises with them, except when y ego sets in. But on the other hand, it feels unreal, as if it is merely my mind and nothing outside, or noone outside. ‘Is that all there is?’ – I wondered, the end of knowledge? Surely I am not the ONE or any enlighetned one at least. Am I sleeping in ‘kryonic’ state on a spaceship, plugged into a computer system and dreaming this world up magically while I am sleeping. How else can I explain the many projections everyday even of people? (Heal myself, I am told as the headache returns and this computer gets unbearable, I feel the heat of the wifi in my cheekbones even as I continue to type, eager to record my thoughts, if only for my own records).

Truly there is noone to know and nothing to know but the knower – and that is all the matrix can ever teach us. With these spiritual masters this was confirmed. But this is not how it feels when we are interacting with other people on a daily basis around us. With the person next door who barely talks to us, with the person in the next cubicle in the office, with the acquaintence you fell out from because of an argument…there are differences at a superficial level because we are not meditating and channeling pure consciousness. We struggle to be in alignment, to be understood, to be felt and to feel love, or at times even plain and basic intelligence from some people, as if they are not real, not there, not interested…like the many…many people in the matrix shown to Neo in the movie, simply holographically manifest or generated programs (from all walks of life).

Our daily struggle, relationship blockages, family situations, economic risks and financial crisis, our strife at work, career challenges and group dynamics affects us all the time while we live in the matrix. These are what feeds the matrix around us, taking energy our of us and delivering that energy to others seemingly around us, empowering the matrix so that we are controlled, or feel controlled even if we actually are not. So that we feel entangled and engrossed in ‘maya’ or illusion on a constant basis.

Self empowerment and personal healing, therefore becomes the most important beginning point for our personal ascension. It brings our energy back to our center, within us, reminding us that it is our mental energy projecting outwards creating the simulation of our world, our universe.

Strangely though, however many times we may try to cleanse our bodies, our mind, our emotional self, our chakras and auric layers, it is still difficult to get ‘rid of’ all the negative energy.

We want to feel positive but instead we find that the more we cleanse our own personal life negativity the more in alignement we are coming with universal conciousness to channel healing from, and the more we are being empowered with the mission of ‘planetary healing’. Shortly we turn our attention outwards to the state of the world and the more we do that, the more depressed and disillusioned we begin to feel all over again. Our little private bubble of personal contentment has burst finally (and thankfully so). We realize there is tremendous negative energy still there, no matter how much personal cleansing we conduct upon ourselves.

The negative energy is not just in our personal aura (or so it seems)…as empaths we feel sensitive to the state of our world and our planet, the cries of the animals murdered and trees killed and the soil and stones blasted off daily, the forest fires and the climate change and global warming, the melting of our poles. We are uncomfortable all over again. And we should be.

We can be as vegan and spiritual and as eco-friendly as we care to be in our personal bubbles (shrinking bubbles, they said) one through which we are shielding and coping, ways of staying ‘sane’ and normal in this crazy world. But how can we escape from that negativity that we sense so very daily around us as we go shopping in the supermarkets full of chopped body parts of murdered creatures wrapped in innocent looking plastic bags, as we walk down the road, as we interact with others who are blissfully or willingly ignorant? This frustrates us, unbearably. Why can we all not be enlightened, not all be awakened fully, why not all be if not awakened or enlightened at least conscious of very simple and basic things, like how not to kill someone? If everyone is a projection and all life a dream, why is it so that there is today, a single person who is angry, negative, evil, cruel or violent around us. Does this mean out inner self is not yet healed in totality? In short we are not ‘Home’ yet.

When we begin our spiritual lourney, at first we learn a few things such as meditation, affirmations, spells, chakra work, channeling energy, and for a few years it is beautiful… we are brimming with joy, success, enlightenment, happiness, bliss and peace and too eager to ‘heal our world and make it a better place’ as Michael Jackson would sing. Soon we realize it is not that very easy. Was Michael Jackson a perfect person, or is any one of us perfect in any way, any one of us, without negativity, without some form of it anyways? Our intentions may be grand but are we from within totally pure and free of negativity? (And for this question we ned to be entirely honest and go really deep inside). If we are not entirely free of negativity within, not complete, not really happy, how do we hope to manifest a perfect universe or even a happy world, a simulation – without completing the great work, this world within us to be healed first.

As Within, So Without – is not just about Intention or thoughts, that would merely be Air and Fire element in healing. Our emotion and behavior are the Water and Earth through which our reality condenses from spirit to matter into the dreamworld we live in, heaven or hell or somewhat both, mid-way…but looking at the world, taking an honest and fully informed look at it, our earth does not resemble heaven or mid-way even. Why would that be so?

It is said that the road to ‘hell’ is paved with good intentions. Obviously good intentions are not enough and merely the beginning but left to their own they may not manifest, we need to really put our heart and soul into it a hundred percent, through and through and work with our own behavior in this body or with any other body we might have, and we need to carry on our inner work with full sincerity and be honest with ourselves.

If we were ascending we will not be seeking a destination that is Ascension, not seeking a heaven above or desperate for light and love, for peace or bliss as a goal, an objective for ourselves, for our personal motivation, but selflessly attuned to the work we are undertaking. If we were to be dedicated to a destination called heaven, whether on earth or in the sky, one where we will be ‘permitted’ to enter or a selected few ‘selected’ for, then how different would we be to the billions of humans who are following religion solely for their goal or hope for being allowed into the sacred destination of the holy ones or their master Jesus or God, or ascended levels of creator, into a perfect place where they can live happily for all eternity, forgiven and allowed into the heavenly realms surrounding the thrones of their God or master/ deity? How different would we be if our Ascension be for our own peace and bliss as we leave the world and all its trauma and suffering behind for others to endure, for others to suffer, for others to even be punished in ‘hell’ with?

As spiritual being who have kindness and love in their hearts how can we allow even one being to suffer to be in pain or to be punished in hell while we ascend to our higher planes and close our hearts to the world below that we are proudly and hurriedly leaving behind in our quest on our multidimensional spaceships or with our twin-flames and angels who carry our tired souls off to another world even as this one is destroyed and going down under? (‘Karma’ my mind says, ‘we deserve it’…but ‘really’, says my heart – are we not able to forgive ourselves and heal each other?)

Surely this is not what awakening looks like to those of us who are empaths and are awakening today. To some of us the feeling of suffering feels as terrible to ourselves as it does to another person, one who is suffering without us in the matrix, or within us in reality. The demons and devils are within, so are the angels and deities of perfect love and light, and the billions and trillions who suffer each year, our victims, our self. We feel as if we suffer with them, a part of us does – a large part of us…gigantic infact. If we are united as one being, one soul, one universal consciousness, then how do we plan to abandon our own loved ones so gleefully and escape this condition that we call our world? (my guides are asking me to type the word Mahadi, I have never used this word before).

In my lucid dream last night I was given a diagram of Ascension, starting with the present solar system, our sun, then a path leading to another sun, probably Sirius – once again for the second time reinforcing Pleiedian and Arcturian or Galactic shift, following which there were two more levels or layers, two more paths, two more suns, the names of which were written but my attention went around them… outside of this…where there was a pitch dark , black space, the word written was ‘Mahamaya’ to the right and ‘Enlightenment’ below. This seems confusing at first but is not so, because in my previous posts I had written that to know the darkness (light on darkness) that is where enlightenment begins.

Mahamaya is a term described by ancient spiritualists from India or Vedic pholosophers of advaita (non-duality) as the great cosmic creatrix, the manifest and unmanifest energy of the universe, the potentiality that is infinity in appearance, unreal or illusion at best but still there, still significant, still omnipresent. It is this energy that everyone worships all over the world, as the creator, as God, as Goddess, as the supreme cause..as consciousness. Energy unconscious becoming conscious….it seems to be around us, but is it really within us? Is it really just one mind presenting many people, many animals, many trees, many planets and stars, many galaxies, many dimensions, many planes of consciousness, many universes, many beings of spirit, many masters, many selves? Could it all be – just an illusion, just a grand cosmic dream? Could it all merely (and regrettably) be a computer generated simulation at this solar level or any other level where we are ascending to? These are honest questions I ask without any concrete answers as yet.

If it is so, then why do we cry for our planet (sometimes I type plant instead of planet, a Freudian slip perhaps, my mind telling me things are not what they seem, an industrial plant, a machine world or an organic plant – there is a difference). We want to heal our earth which is certainly a simulation, but are we all just programs, all living beings mere simulation, our bodies, emotions, thoughts, all our suffering an illusion? If so, there is a hope of peace here that all those who suffered did not really suffer in truth, that it was merely a dream. But we felt it nevertheless.

We are empaths, healers and love based consciousness focused, simple and humble individuals who want there to be peace, kindness and a better world. That is why we hope to ascend, to the better universe, and for this matrix to fully ‘open up’ and fall apart like a dream ends, we cannot bear the untruth of suffering any longer and wish it would end just like Alice in Wonderland, calling out the cards of absurd reality for what they are, just a (plain) pack of cards, queens, kings …and all. In a world of truth, no one should be crying or in pain, noone abused or killed, no rape, no eco-cide, no destruction, only conscious beings who co-exist in peace, connected through love and light, for anything below that is simply meaningless and absurd and makes no sense whatsoever. There is no place for evil in a true world, it can only be untruth, duality, simulation, maya, and at least that is what I hope it is.

We can only believe and try to pray, heal or improve our awareness levels to a planetary conciousness, through all this pain and suffering of the world, feeling it in us, sensing and not ignoring it, realizing something through it, something very wrong….working with it… not ignoring it..but learning. From then on we progress to a galactic consciousness…and hope that with this awakening of consciousness there will (still) be an awakening of the real self, the one within, who remains awake inside – from this dream to the truth – that to me is Ascension… at least for now.

Nine Things That Make No Further Sense In an Awakening World

Humans are gaining consciousness after what seems to be millennia of deep sleep. Things that trigger our awakening are precisely those things that we did in the past that do not seem to make any sense if we actually use our inner wisdom:

1. Killing and mistreating innocent animals for food: When we turn vegan or encourage others to consider how animals die or suffer for our food when we can receive much better health through plant based diet because fruits and vegetables do not kill the plant, we get many arguments to handle. Just because our lesser evolved ancestors or other animals have been okay with consuming animals should we keep doing so without feeling any compassion? Are we still unconscious or are we supposed to be more evolved? We might feel that animal abuse and killing for food or entertainment be banned in an awakened universe, yet do we have the courage to say it? After-all killing, rape or abuse of other humans has also been acceptable in the past.peta

2. Using plastic: We argue that plastic can be recycled and consume tons of it everyday adding to the weight of non-biodegradable garbage on earth, but will plastic cease to be polluting or toxic just because it is being recycled. While governments are afraid to impose or implement bans on plastic in most countries, can we not consciously reduce and discover alternatives to this monster we have created simply for convenience?

3. Toxic and Chemical Products: Our needs for glamour and convenience need not outweigh that of true inner beauty and health. We need to ask why we all are we so keen on being outwardly attractive and looking or smelling good, why we keep socializing over drinks or smokes or why we continue eating more and more packaged foods that we do not research the ingredients and go natural instead? Whether it is harmful foods, addictive cigarettes, drugs or alcohol, or over-marketed skin-care and chemical make-up we can choose to say no and be conscious instead. Toxins-in-the-name-of-BEAUTY.png

4. Technological addiction: Whether children or adults we stay 24×7 on smartphones, television or other gadgets, with both eyes looking outside at some kind of entertainment instead of meditation. Staring outside instead of looking inwards is exactly how we lost our third-eye powers, and if we keep doing so we might lose the last of our remaining connections with higher consciousness?wifi

5. Ignorant beliefs and practices: We know how many of our outdated ideas are self-created outpourings of ignorant beliefs. While imagining that some being or beings outside us are giving us the rules we so loyally follow, we have mistreated women, sacrificed animals, encouraged racism, fought for land and power, spread fear and psychosis, destroyed nature and discouraged inner search for truth in the name of religion or belief.

6. Celebrity Worship:  With all that focus on glamour, fame and material power, where do real role models of inner enlightenment disappear? We see idol-worship of a new kind with mass-market music, movies, advertisements and sports dominating the scene while real talent and actual creative genius seems suppressed and unacknowledged. Spiritual idols too seem to be those famous figures of history, popularity or myth that develop into our gods and masters while we lose connection to the higher self within us.

7. Constant Seeking of Outer Pleasure: Special offers and a bombardment of marketing entice our senses all the time preventing us from making sensible choices. Screen romances and popular music has been deeply programming us to constantly look for sexual partners and indulgences all around us. We find little time to seek our own inner self as we lose who we are in the matrix of illusions and desires? If we were to detach from this constant seeking and find a peace and contentment from within, we would not be dancing in ‘maya’ all the time.

8. Making Money as the goal of life: Schools, colleges, offices, shops, we keep learning how to make money, struggle for survival, enhance superficial lifestyle and status and one day enter the ranks of the rich and famous. Are we learning how to exploit the matrix for gaining more and more at the expense of the well-being of others and the planet? Do we consider saying no to many of the unnecessary material objects that we have been accumulating and instead focus on spiritual enlightenment.auto-424119_960_720

9. Medicine that merely suppress symptoms: While we blindly consume harmful meat, dairy, processed foods, chemicals and pesticides instead of organic, fresh and raw vegan diet, and fill ourselves with negative thoughts or emotions, we develop many illnesses, lose resistance to common colds and headaches, and fall prey to life threatening obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart-disease and more that only leads to increased medical bills and taxes. In spiritual awakening, we begin to see that we manifest our own conditions and actually change our inner state through spiritual awareness and healthier choices in mind, body and spirit so that we no longer depend on constant medication.drug-pusher-1907827_960_720

Seven Ways People Stay Unhappy and How to Transform From Within

We all create our own sorrows as a way of learning and growing towards the light. Our pain draws attention to those suppressed or repressed parts of ourself that need healing. While some people are constantly stuck in the same unhappy situations, others move on transformed, healed and awakened. What is the difference?

1. Unhappy people keep thinking about their suffering and want someone (else) to help them. They love talking about their past with everyone they meet because it is necessary for them to attract sympathy and emotional support but they often find that people are not always equipped to help them in concrete ways. They also haunt religious places seeking answers to their prayers through a deity outside them and feel excited or frustrated when it coincidentally ‘works’ or does not. What they really need is the right inner work to begin transforming their situation. The right spiritual perspective would be scientific and self empowering. Therapies to heal the past patterns from within help realize our own karma through which we created our situation. To focus on learning how to manifest a better situation through our own energetic shift would be much more helpful than looking around.

2. Unhappy people feel they are victims of jealousy, attacks and conspiracies. Their energy is constantly drained in seeking confirmation that they have indeed been manipulated, targeted and made scapegoats by each and everyone, whether their own family, friends or systems of the world. If you have not yet been blamed by them for any of their miseries you soon will! Happy people in contrast look within themselves to realize that the people and systems that they attract into their life are somehow deeply connected to their level of consciousness. They understand that the universe is within them and all of their unconscious parts are exposed in the form of the collective that sometimes seems dysfunctional or limiting. These enlightened people are able to raise the consciousness of individuals or masses by their light, thereby transforming those very systems that others kept blaming all the time.

3. Unhappy people enjoy reading negative, controversial news and gossip to feed their mind with information and are eager to share those on social media and in personal interactions. Often these stories become what ‘everyone is talking about’ in social circles around the world. Media highlights the most negative stories even more because they know what catches the public fancy and adds to their circulation. Happy people on the other hand are aware that there are infinitely more positive things to be grateful for and a lot of really good people with inspiring stories to share. If they see or read a negative story their focus is on how they can personally shift the energy of the situation through their inner power, by sending healing or manifesting change and not just looking around for someone else to fix the situation. They believe in themselves.

4. Unhappy people seek to fill their emptiness with meaningless relationships, false friends, unhealthy and excess food, unecessary shopping and other addictions. They try to enhance their self worth through their looks, labels, wealth, certifications or popularity to help them project a better image or status outwardly. They are unable to enjoy space, silence, nature, or their own presence. Happy people on the other hand choose minimalism over excess. They know that ‘less is more’ and that they only need so much that they actually require for optimal living, whether in real estate, wardrobe, refrigerator, newsfeeds, inbox messages, edicational degrees or bank balance. Gaining consciousness and being self content is tremendously more satisfying than acculumating things or knowledge.

5. Unhappy people would love fatalism, prophecies, predictions and psychic readings to give them definitive answers. They want to be told what their future is, as if it were happening outside them. They feel unsure, incapable or undeserving of the power to manifest their own destiny, so much so that they judge others who believe in their inner power. Happy people love being centered in the creative spirit within them. They know that the universal life force energy does not flow from outside but from the universe within. They are aware of how each person or thing in their life is projected through their inner consciousness. They have seen the power of creative visualization in action through their own practice and do not require external proof.

6. Unhappy people are afraid to upgrade their beliefs. They hold on to the known because it is comfortable for them. They hang out with the same people they are accustomed to especially based on caste, race, religion, looks or social status. They watch the same senseless television shows and read the same quality of books just to follow the crowd. As a result their consciousness remains at the same level for a very long time. Happy people on the other hand manifest the next higher level of being. They attract more bliss and peace instead of everything else.

7. Unhappy people label themselves as ‘unhappy’. Their belief that they are unhappy people attracts more unhappiness to them. They speak of being unhappy as their present condition as if they have no choice. A happy person has been very unhappy in the past, sometimes even till today or perhaps even until this very moment. They may have suffered greatly, but gain awareness in the present moment to choose happiness right now. They accept their suffering as a catalyst for inner awakening. They trust that somehow from right now onwards, they can and will initiate at least some form of change. Through this scientific faith they begin to unfold a truly happy life from this moment forward.

Who Are You In The Matrix?

Do we live in a simulation? This question is obsolete for three reasons:

  1. Ancient philosophers all over the world already said the world, our entire universe is ‘maya’ or an illusion
  2. Modern scientists and technologists have recently started to agree that the chances we are not in a simulation are too little
  3. Modern spiritual practitioners including this author have literally seen reality manifest through their mind, people, situations and world events

It is 100% true that we live in a ‘Matrix’ of energy being constantly crafted through all the stuff in our mind. It is just like being strapped in a virtual reality system that practically generates all your life experiences right out of your conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and expectations. The more we gain consciousness through meditation, and free ourselves from the slavery of our unconscious mental programming that we absorbed through the world, the sooner we awaken.

The Matrix is everywhere, wherever our mind is….. even right now!

While we are in the Matrix, which means the world is a projection or hologram around us, which of the characters of the Matrix movie do you relate with the most:

  1. The Seeker: A bit like Neo who always felt there was something not real about his world, and spent night and night researching the truth, we might be yearning for the answers and who knows even connect with the Source of this reality to save the world, much like The One. After-all the world is a creation of our mind and the more we practice the more miracles we can manifest.neo
  2. The Supporter: Many of us are akin to Trinity and others in the team of the Resistance, to provide love and support to spiritual seekers and help them in discovering their powers as their family members, partners, friends and colleagues who work alongside each other as one celestial familiy.trinitymatrix
  3. The Guide: The way Morpheus sought various ‘potentials’ and guided Neo out of the Matrix by showing him his ‘real self’ and getting him unplugged out of the conditioned or programmed reality, we could be guides for those who are yet to awaken, and those who make that choice (the red pill), provided we have been awakened ourselves.Morpheus-Matrix
  4. The Deceiver: Just like Cypher who knows too well that we are in the Matrix, but chooses to keep entertaining himself in the false reality even after being freed, we could fool ourselves with fame, fortune, worldly success and pleasures of the senses only to once again forget who we are. Unfortunately many spiritual masters have been doing just that, using the Matrix to fulfil endless personal desires. cypher
  5. The Agent: Like Agent Smith and his team of controllers some of us try their best to keep people absorbed in their routine lives or enslavement to worldly goals and expectations, whether through fear based systems of religion and politics or the false glamour of media and outer beauty. Matrix-agents-h1ladyinred
  6. The Architect: Much like the sophisticated Architect in the movie, a few people actually design control systems of corporate, political or religious nature to prevent inner freedom, so much so that even seekers such as Neo find themselves in a conundrum. architect
  7. A Program: Such as the Merovingian or the Twins who are designed to carry our certain repeated patterns of behavior, MOST people are simply repeating whatever they have learnt to generate certain outputs in society and in their personal lives, sometimes appearing to lead rich and successful lives, and at other times aspiring to achieve more in the Matrix of worldly projections.merovingian
  8. The Oracle: Like the old Oracle program, who is designed to be intuitive so as to predict the mind of humans, there are several seers, psychics and prophets who reveal the past, present or future and guide seekers or programs alike, and yet remain very much a part of the Matrix mother program.oracle (1)
  9. The Machine: The AI machines that literally draw all the life force or energy out of people to keep themselves alive, our machinery of social, economic and religious systems feeds on human resources to control the planet and land through our own mind. You may have been part of this machination. machine

So now that you know what the Matrix is and what role you have been unconsciously or consciously fulfilling, what is your choice? Do you want to be free of the conditioned mind and discover who you really are? And what will you do when you discover your true self?

Believe in The Miraculous

What is Miraculous ?

Something that happens only in ‘Disney’ movies?

Something that happens only in religious texts?

Something purely technological?

Something you might experience someday…maybe… if you believe?

Or, is it something here with you , in you …right now…?

Fairy tales, religious beliefs, technological wizardry or mind-magic..are all around us.

Yet, you do not have to belong to a specific religion to receive an answer to your prayers. You do not have to believe in dragons and fairies to get a wish. You do not need a gadget to send a message instantly to someone far away…It all depends on our inner energetic state.

Miraculous is within us, right now.

Our thoughts, desires, beliefs and habits are constantly creating our life. Regardless of fantasy, religion or scientific knowledge, each one of us is capable of letting go of our unwanted thoughts, unnecessary desires, false beliefs and unuseful habits…and begin manifesting the miraculous.

There are two ways our subconscious mind manifests the multi-dimensional world.

  1. Our subconscious creating our dreams… that appear amazingly real and vivid, so much so that we cannot even tell the difference between awake and asleep.
  2. Our subconscious creating our waking life moments… that appear amazingly real and vivid, so much so that we cannot even tell the difference between awake and asleep.

Yes, each and everything around is is self-created at some level of mind. For most of us this has been happening subconsciously. When we believed that we were awake, we might actually have been asleep, because our subconscious fears, reactions, anger, judgements, disregard, vanity, ego, or any other hidden or inner states were manifesting into lack of health, frustrations, crime, discontent, artificialness, corruption or any other issue that affected us for ages.

On the other hand, conscious awareness can help us manifest desired situations and experiences literally in our life. Those of us who have gained this awareness have seen this truth for ourselves, and the skepticism of others does not come in our way anymore. We begin with transforming our inner energy to directly experience better health, emotional joy, career satisfaction, abundance, love and truthful relationships. At the next stage we can help others (who are willing and receptive) through healing, intuition, telepathy and energy transmission. Our inner miracles grow to the extent that we can even affect global situations to some or the other extent.

As more of our subconscious comes into light of consciousness we find our world transform. It is merely a matter of time that all of us will gain this inner awareness that surpasses all boundaries of religion and science to lead us into a better state of global unity, peacefulness, loving acceptance, kindness, good health, equality, truth and safety for all beings including human.

We do not have to believe in a specific god, angel, ritual, prayer, fantasy or any other customary belief to manifest the promised kingdom. All we have to believe in the miraculous inner self, our own ascended state of consciousness to make our own promise come true.

FAQs about Spirituality and Religion

This FAQ is based on the personal experience of the author and is intended to encourage readers to introspect, meditate and discover  truth through self-realization. You are welcome to share your own personal experiences and spread the light.

Is Spirituality the same as Religion?

Spirituality does not always require adherence to any specific religion. Spirituality is an inner path, based on self-realization. Religions can be spiritual if they teach people how to be positive and compassionate from within. Those religions who teach blind faith, promote worship of outer God or deities and promote scriptures as the only way to learn truth may not be an inner path of spirituality.

Are all Religious Scriptures Positive and Love based?

By more than a superficial reading of various popular religious scriptures of various cultures, we can see that all of them have not been positive in all aspects. Gender bias, LGBT bias, racial supremacy, religious superiority complex and bias towards human specie have been clearly promoted through certain holy texts. In how many religious scriptures do we find a focus on animal rights, LGBT rights, women’s equality and racial equality which are our common human values in the modern world today? Fear of blasphemy and heresy have been used to prevent updating of holy books or scriptures that were written to suit earlier notions although each holy book often claims to be the one true word of God.

Is there One True Religion?

Religions have been culture specific beliefs prevalent in specific places and later spread or shared cross-culturally. There are far too many religions to be named here and many of them have a foundation of peace, love, kindness and regard for all of nature. We all have a common truth that ideally transcends religious or cultural boundaries and this common truth might be shared between various religions to some or the other extent. Any religion that claims to be the only one truth may be superiority-based or even fundamentalist, and not a source of true unity.

Is Spirituality about an outer God/ Devil or Inner Self?

We all can see a reality around us and know that we exist in a universe, but not all of us realize that each and every one of our situations, realities and life experiences are self-created projections or manifestations. Most people have been blaming either God or Devil for everything in the world. The magical and illusory nature or ‘maya’ of our universe can slowly be understood through awakening of our own inner consciousness through meditation and self-realization.

Who is the Devil?

Some people promote belief in a specific being called Devil as the source of all evil. Through meditation and an honest introspection we may find that our own hateful or ignorant beliefs, ego-based ideas, negative thoughts or harmful deeds in the past may in-fact be the source of evil, both individual or collective. All negative entities or energies, no matter what we name them, may be fear-based creations of our individual or collective minds that can appear quite real in this ‘matrix’ or illusion of reality. Deeply transforming our fears to love may be necessary for healing.

Who is God?

God as a source of unlimited Love and creator of all there is may not be a limited entity or personality. There is an unlimited love energy or consciousness that is present in all beings and waiting to be awakened. This energy is not of a specific gender or form and includes divine feminine and masculine in itself. All positive entities, loving deities, higher angels or positive energies may be creations or forms of our individual and collective love based consciousness. This higher consciousness or Source may be what many of us call God or Goddess or simply our Highest Self.

Is there a Higher Truth beyond our World?

Most people have been too busy in the outer world to give time to self-realization. They have been unaware that through our mind we can create either negative or positive realities in our life. Highly awakened spiritual masters have consistently guided us that all people, material possessions and life-events are manifested or attracted through our consciousness or unconsciousness. Those who believe only in the outer world or outer deities may at first find it hard to appreciate this view.

How can we Realize Truth or Know God?

Religions may have claimed that God or Truth can be known only through worship or through obedience to scriptures. Through self-realization we can personally witness the magical nature of the universe and how it is within us. We can see that healing can be sent and received regardless of religious belief because we are all interconnected beyond all differences. We might find that all things are impermanent or illusory but only deep inner love is true. By realizing our own inner source of unconditional kindness and love those who are on the inner-path can know God as our common inner truth that unites us as One.

How can we Heal ourselves?

Healing literally means rejoining or feeling whole. By feeling separate from the creator we cannot really be healed. Our healing journey begins when we learn to remember how we have been creating our life. We can be a witness to our own self and watch our own life transform through love based positive beliefs, positive thoughts and positive deeds. This happens only through deep inner healing including self-forgiveness, channeling positive energy and acceptance of our present moment as the point of positive transformation regardless of our past. Our true divine potential or Highest Self is always within us.

How can we Heal the World or our Collective Reality?

Most religious believers have left the task of healing the world to an outer God. At the same time through self-realization many people have personally experienced their own inner powers of healing and compassion. It is found that we heal our life, we also begin to magically heal others individuals or groups in kind and loving ways. True love unites us as One through our deeply felt inner awareness of magical abundance and higher consciousness. Both individually or in groups we can all heal our collective and individual self through love-based consciousness. A good place to begin is our own heart through meditation.

 

Brain/ Mind/Consciousness-‘Knowing The Knower’

Is human consciousness all about our brain and neurons? Or could there be something deeper to it?

There is no evidence existing which necessarily proves neural activities are the CAUSE of consciousness. Though they indicate CORRELATIONS only, in fact perceptual studies have accumulated plenty of evidences which disproves CAUSATION by brain.

Take for instance, the famous claim by John Searle, Slusser Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley: that neural activity and conscious experience stand in the same relationship as molecules of H2O to water, with its properties of wetness, coldness, shininess and so on. The analogy fails as the level at which water can be seen as molecules, on the one hand, and as wet, shiny, cold stuff on the other, are intended to correspond to different “levels” at which we are conscious of it. But the existence of levels of experience or of description presupposes consciousness. Water does not intrinsically have these levels. We cannot therefore conclude that when we see what seem to be neural correlates of consciousness that we are seeing consciousness itself.

While neural activity of a certain kind is a necessary condition for every manifestation of consciousness, from the lightest sensation to the most exquisitely constructed sense of self, it is neither a sufficient condition of it, nor, still less, is it identical with it. If it were identical, then we would be left with the insuperable problem of explaining how intracranial nerve impulses, which are material events, could “reach out” to extra-cranial objects in order to be “of” or “about” them. Straightforward physical causation explains how light from an object brings about events in the visual cortex. No such explanation is available as to how those neural events are “about” the physical object. Biophysical science explains how the light gets in but not how the gaze looks out.

Many features of ordinary consciousness also resist neurological explanation. Take the unity of consciousness. I can relate things I experience at a given time (the pressure of the seat on my bottom, the sound of traffic, my thoughts) to one another as elements of a single moment. Researchers have attempted to explain this unity  by invoking Quantum coherence however this fails  because they assume that an objective unity or uniformity of nerve impulses would be subjectively available, which, of course, it won’t be. Even less would this explain the unification of entities that are, at the same time, experienced as distinct. My sensory field is a many-layered whole that also maintains its multiplicity. There is nothing in the convergence or coherence of neural pathways that gives us this “merging without mushing”, this ability to see things as both whole and separate.

Here are also problems with notions of the self, with the initiation of action, and with free will. Science begins when we escape our first-person subjective experience. Thus, measurement takes us further from experience and the phenomena of subjective consciousness to a realm where things are described in abstract but quantitative terms. To do its work, physical science has to discard “secondary qualities”, such as color, warmth or cold, taste – in short, the basic contents of consciousness. For the physicist then, light is not in itself bright or colorful, it is a mixture of vibrations in an electromagnetic field of different frequencies. The material world, far from being the noisy, colorful, smelly place we live in, is colorless, silent, full of odorless molecules, atoms, particles, whose nature and behavior is best described mathematically. In short, physical science is about the marginalization, or even the disappearance, of phenomenal appearance, the redness of red wine or the smell of a smelly dog.

Consciousness, on the other hand, is all about phenomenal appearances. As science moves from appearances and toward quantities that do not themselves have the kinds of manifestation that make up our experiences, an account of consciousness in terms of nerve impulses must be a contradiction in terms. There is nothing in physical science that can explain why a physical object such as a brain should ascribe appearances to material objects that do not intrinsically have them.

Our failure to explain consciousness in terms of neural activity inside the brain inside the skull is not due to technical limitations which can be overcome. It is due to the self-contradictory nature of the task, of which the failure to explain “aboutness”, the unity and multiplicity of our awareness, the explicit presence of the past, the initiation of actions, the construction of self are just symptoms. We cannot explain “appearings” using an objective approach that has set aside appearing as unreal and which seeks a reality in mass/energy that neither appears in itself nor has the means to make other items appear. The brain, seen as a physical object, no more has a world of things appearing to it than does any other physical object.

From the Vedic literature, we learn that there is a conscious self that is separate from the  body. Obviously, we are conscious of every single impulse that the senses of our body deals with. There is perfect interaction. So science will question how the self can interact so well with the body if it is not part of the body. And why is consciousness affected when changes are made to the brain? If the self is separate, then consciousness should not be affected. These are the arguments of science, and the Vedic literature offers some very interesting answers. If these arguments are answered, then why not consider an alternative viewpoint, as described in the Vedic literature?

There have been top scientists at such places as the University of Virginia using the strictest standards for documenting and researching particular phenomena. They have been able to demonstrate conclusive findings in over hundreds of test cases with patients who were, according to all known laws of physics, technically in a state of unconsciousness, or in a coma due to a heart attack or accident. The patients, after being brought back to consciousness, explained in detail what procedures had been performed to revive them. They described themselves as floating out of their body, up into the room, looking down and watching the medical procedures the doctors were performing on them. There was no possibility that they could have dreamed this as subsequent tests have shown. This shows that there is a difference between the brain and the mind, and that the mind or consciousness can continue working even though the brain is impaired and hardly functioning at all, as in a comatose state.

In the near-death experience we have the description of what happened to the individuals when they were revived, but what if they had not re-entered their body? What if the patients could not be revived? If they had died, where would they have gone? Or is death simply the end of everything? When someone dies, the relatives may cry and exclaim, “Oh, he is gone, he has left us.” But what is gone? He is lying there, or at least the body is. So if he is gone, then it is that part you have not seen that is gone. So what is it?

WHAT   IS   IT  ?

What is it , which is so difficult  to figure out with the help of mere intellect of academic studies? however it has become one of the major topics of curiosity in the field of modern science today. Is it worth knowing anything else without knowing the knower itself?

Since the beginning of life wisest men have always realized that knowing the knower is the highest form of knowledge in fact the ultimate purpose..let us be conscious about the consciousness itself, let us be on the path of knowing the knower ..Let us REALIZE  SELF…

Saturday Story: The Dreamer

Once there was a person who was in deep sleep. This person was dreaming, dreams after dreams…just like all of us who dream each night. In one dream this person was a fish, swimming in the ocean…exploring the world underwater…when a bird swept down and caught her…there she met her death. But, the dream continued…she was now a bird…flying high in the sky…soaring on the clouds with her strong wings… and looking down sharply to catch a prey..and as she flew down to hunt…a leopard took a leap at her and made her his meal. That was the end of her flight and her life. Yet, she kept dreaming on. This time she was a leopard roaring around the jungle looking for a good hunt. She felt strong and powerful…almost invincible, when suddenly she was struck by the bullet of a poacher in the forest that brought her down.

leopard-1518673_960_720

Still, she kept dreaming on….this time becoming a young man who lived a rough and weary life, struggling for money and basic necessities. Driven by the urge to feed himself and his family he joined a gang of poachers who made good money hunting and selling animal parts and skins. Then one day he was died in an accident. That was the end of that dream. Yet, he kept dreaming on into another dream. This time he was a wealthy businessman who lived a luxurious life with his wife and kids, in a large house decorated with the stuffed animals he purchased from the poachers. He ate hearty meals and indulged as much as he could. Then one day he was died of a heart attack…but the dreamer went on dreaming. This time she was a widow who was trekking through the forest, when she came across an injured animal who was struggling for life. Having been through the pain of losing her husband who had died of a sudden heart attack, she felt great compassion for the animal and the animal’s family. She thought of walking ahead and leaving the dying creature alone…yet kindness took over and she called the animal rescue team who rescued the beast and its life. She felt good. From then on she decided to be a positive person who helps everyone and hurts none. She began an amazing journey learning how to be peaceful, loving and generous. She saw how she had the power to change the world with her physical efforts, unaware that she is merely dreaming. Then one day she died and this dream was over, and another began.

face-636095_960_720

This time the dreamer was a kind and honest man who lived a simple life, teaching others about love, peace and kindness. He wished he could be everywhere helping as many beings as possible, but physically he could do only so much. Yet, he felt so much compassion that he often closed his eyes and wished that the world would heal. He imagined seeing the world as a better place and magically enough, he began changing the world with his mind. He was amazed that he indeed could wish for anything and see it happen. At first he was afraid of this power. It seemed strange and scary that anything good or bad could indeed happen at his will, not only in his life but around him too, with just the power of his mind. Then he began accepting this power as something divine that can be used for the benefit of all. People gave him titles of great respect and awe. Then one day he died and the dream ended, and another began.

All this while he was dreaming…and unaware of who he really was. In the next dream he began again, living an exalted and peaceful life with divine superpowers. Except that one day, he began to wonder…if the world can indeed change so easily with these divine superpowers and positive thinking…how real could this world be? Suddenly he felt like a fool who is unaware, sleeping and lost in illusion. He wanted to realize the truth about the universe and his existence. Who was he really? He wanted to wake up.

This story is the story of each one of us. We are all in this dream called the world where we are learning how we all are One. It is illusion to think there is anyone else out there. Our family, loved ones, friends, pets, and all creatures everywhere…all share one single consciousness at the core. We may have many bodies but our soul is the same. This one consciousness or the soul of the universe is within us all. When we hurt any being it is our-self that we are hurting, when we help any being, it is our-self that heals. Our mind connects with everything and everyone on earth and beyond and can influence the world in greater ways that we ever knew, because we are all One.

It is through meditation, self-love and inner contentment that we heal ourselves and prepare for our awakening, all satisfied and relaxed with deep inner peace. This journey from ignorance to the ultimate truth is what our existence is really all about. Know Thyself!

In Which Yuga (Cycle of Ages) Is The ‘Star Wars’ Saga Based?

I’m conscious of writing a second article on Star Wars in the same week, before and after its release but seeing the much awaited hype and high definition drama, I could not help asking myself what Yuga is it likely to be based out of?

Yugas or Cycle of Ages explores the timeline around the ebb and flow of civilization and consciousness. The keyword is cyclic as it challenges the standard theory of linear evolution (that says our ancestors were far less advanced and even primitive but as we look at some of the achievements tens of thousands of years ago – pyramids, yoga, ancient astronomy – we recognize they far exceeded our current abilities).

Let’s check out another explanation. Hindu scriptures suggest the rise and fall of consciousness over time – a recurring cycle of four yugas totaling 24000 years. Highly cited authors such as Graham Hancock and archeo-astronomer, Walter Cruttenden of The Binary Institute among others have researched this intriguing possibility with hard-to-dismiss facts and figures!

inage

In a nutshell, Yugas trace the lowest point of a civilization to the highest from its dark to golden ages and vice-versa, whichever way you look at it.

It is important to understand, it refers more to the consciousness than mechanical progress so even though a civilization can peak in terms of scientific ability, it can still witness a decline in its consciousness. By consciousness, I simply mean, ‘maturity of the majority’. If you can imagine our own planet, tens of thousands of years in the future, when we have spread out across the galaxy, settled on other planets and technologically far more advanced and project it on the cycle above, you can foresee a period of dark ages similar to 700 BC – 1700 AD, when we were busy fighting wars and slavery was rife.

On the same note, in a galaxy far away where Star Wars is set, you clearly see technical prowess on one side and on the other, find conditions darkly overshadowed by slavery and people there living in fear of being torn apart from their home planets in the face of constant wars with the opposite ‘force’.

That is anything but a sign of the higher ages where peace and harmony is pronounced yet it does not seem at the lowest either, in the very depths of despair where hope is lost and if you compare that against where we are now supposed to be (ascending Dwapara Yuga), I’m tempted to think, they may well be in the ascending curve of Kali Yuga when one is coming out of the dark ages and not going any further in it! Please take a minute to also think about it…

Mind you, this was a thought experiment and as cookie mogul Wally Amos said, ‘The mind is like a parachute. It functions best when opened’, I also hope the revised interpretation of evolution prompted some to question your ‘most cherished beliefs’ about what you always thought is true!

And as always, we welcome your thoughts on thepositivemedia@gmail.com.
