Muladhara (a)

(1.10) All power comes from within–the Universal fountain of supply; the infinite energy of each individual, an outlet.

(6.30) True science and true religion are twin sisters; where the one goes, the other–necessarily–follows.

(7.20) Insight allows us understand the value of making make application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means-true.

(8.10) Keen analytical observation leads to opulence and harmony.

Observation leads to knowledge. Applied knowledge becomes power.

Power is the ability to change perception(s). Power originates in each individual and is demonstrated by our ability to think.

Science is observation. Religion is the personification of the forces and drives we observe.

(1.1) The world without is a reflection of the world within.

(6.21) Sickness may be eliminated by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law (cause&effect).

(5.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what is required for our growth from each experience.

(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought; it is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; it is the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer or inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

The world we perceive reflects the world we imagineSickness is an effect. If we eliminate the cause, the effect will disappear.

Learning from the conditions we experience is the method for transcending them.



Sahasrara (d)

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while the imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action.

(7.14) Cause & effect is the principle by which thought is manifested in form.

(6.24) Thought is spiritual and, therefore, creative and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

(1.4) We relate to the Universal Mind by the subconscious mind.The solar plexus is the organ of this mind.

Imagination is visualizing conditions that support our ideal state while daydreaming is self-gratifying mental pictures at the expense of others.

The solar plexus transmits thought to the unlimited creative potential of the Universal. Manifestation/Form is the effect.

(1.7) The result of the action and interaction is cause & effect; every thought is a cause, every condition, an effect.

(6.27) Millions are making use of mental therapeutics.

(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord of ever kind. This mental photography of erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction brings the inevitable substance to growth. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

(8.7) Mind is the very real moving force by which we attract the people and circumstances necessary to complete our plans.

The individual relates to the the Universal/Brahma by thinking. A conscious recognition of this interaction is mental therapeutics. This is the method for attracting the object of our directed attention.

Destructive thinking results from discussing and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord of ever kind.


Crossover Week #5 (b)

(2.24) Universal Mind creates form by means of the individual.

(1.24) The nature of our desires must be in harmony with nature’s law.

We may access the creative potential of Universal Mind directing our attention toward a specific desire (not an outcome). If the nature of our thoughts is not in harmony with nature’s law, we will only succeed in creating an illusion state.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the control factor in this method of thought.

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

Spiritual truth is a knowledge of the power of thought to access the unlimited creative potential of nature/Universal Mind.

(2.22) We may control other forms of intelligence by a recognition of Self as an individualization of Universal intelligence.

(1.22) Invisible forces are, then, set in motion to bring about the desired result.

Self is the inner “voice” or guide of intuition that may be recognized as being set apart from ego. Invisible forces are the forces that evolution of nature.

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with the object of our thought that we are conscious of nothing else.

(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.

Concentration is the ability to quiet ruminating mind so that out attention can be directed toward our desired ideal. Intelligence is a spectrum and may be understood/measured as the degree to which we can eliminate unwanted internal dialogues.

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

Individuals have the ability to act upon the unlimited creative potential of nature by replacing unsupportive internal dialogues with supportive ones. This begins by recognizing subconscious thoughts and habits, then replacing unsupportive ones with ones that we support our ideal state.

(1.19) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.

(2.19) A conscious recognition of the law of attraction with the intention of bringing it into existence for a definite purpose is necessary to bring this law into operation.

Spiritual methods” may be understood as the process of replacing unsupportive thoughts with supportive ones. When this happens, we will become aware that our new thoughts are attracting new opportunities into our life as a result of a change in our perception of conditions.


6.20-23~ Sickness May Be Eliminated

(6.20) Sickness may be eliminated by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law, which is omniscient.

(3.4) The solar plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating.

(3.5) This distribution may be interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.

(3.5) The result of this disruption is every ill which the human race has been afflicted.

Placing ourselves in harmony with natural law is a recognition that our physical, emotional, spiritual and mental well being must reinforce each other.

(6.21) Man in a spiritual being and this spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.

It is due to neglect of spiritual awareness (the importance of recognizing that our thoughts are a catalyst to manifest perception/reality) that we become fixated on nurturing less than our complete four-fold being.

(6.22) A conscious recognition of this perfection–first mentally then emotionally–results in a manifestation of this perfection.

When theoretical knowledge becomes applied knowledge, our perception/reality changes.



6.27-29~ Infinite, limitless power

(6.27) Millions of people make use of mental therapeutics.

Mental therapeutics is a practical understanding that thought is the cause and conditions are the effect.

(6.28) For the first time in the world history, mankind’s highest reasoning faculty can be satisfied by demonstrable truth which is now fast flooding the world.

Cause and effect is observable.

(6.29) This system will meet every human requirement or necessity.

Utilizing cause and effect puts us in touch with infinite, limitless power.

Ushnika Hedi Go: Maintaining Awareness In Trance States

Ushnika Vijaya is a goddess who “completely purifies all evil destinies / lower realms.” She is a Tibetan incarnation of the Hindu Goddess Durga–a symbol of harmonious Self Realization–in comparison to Kali, who represents the chaos that can result from resisting this process. Predicated upon this duality is the supposition that regardless of our conscious participation, the purpose of life/experience is Self Realization. Jung has named this process of self inquiry/introspection, Individuation: bringing unconscious beliefs and habitual behaviors into conscious and consistent awareness. Our willingness to participate or resist this process will determine if we have a “Durga” pleasant experience or a “Kali” chaotic one. Indifference can be an underlying factor of either extreme and does not necessitate a specific experience. It is our intention that discriminates, in this context.

From the Reticular Activating System to the hippocampus, neurology has shown that behavior is a physiological response to the way our bodies interact with their environment. Lack of sleep, dehydration and the effects of alcohol all inhibit the hippocampus and, thus, our inhibit-ions deteriorate. Because consciousness emerges nearly simultaneously with experience, it is tempting to interpret consciousness as a byproduct of behavior/learning, except that introspection (self inquiry) is not a bundle of learning processes. 

The brain reorganizes information obtained for the senses and makes it linear, by the same function that we recall our dreams as a linear experience regardless of the order they were delivered. 

Addiction/possession is when our desire for gratification is greater that our foreknowledge of the consequences. If we are constantly giving our senses power over mind, we are perpetually returning to the same spot in spite of our theoretical knowledge of progress.

The fields of the mind are cultivated through discipline. Only then can the seeds of awareness grow into a harvest of Self Realization.

Generally, Yang energy wants to solve problems while Yin energy wants to talk about them. Both are valid tools for navigating experience. An emphasis on Yang and we overlook better and/or long term solutions. An emphasis on Yin leads to idle talk and thinking. When utilized simultaneously, we discover the emergence of the most effective tool to navigate experience. We may learn from every situation we encounter by examining our motivation for identifying with experience rather than questioning conditions themselves. This method of self inquiry reaps endless value and meaning. Counterbalanced with a a meditation practice that dissolves thought and facilitates an experience of the absence of Selfis the essence of Ushnika Hedi Go

Experience must always be considered an opportunity to learn. Learning is the basis for every experience. We may use the knowledge we have gained to moderate experience. The more we focus on personal identity, the further we drift away from our awareness of Self. As a result, the personal unconscious in expanding, as mirrored by the expansion of space. 

Ego is the only one having an identity crisis.

A guru was asked, “Is it better to give into desire and try to learn something than be manipulated by desire and learn nothing?”

“It is better to try and learn something from having desires than giving into them.”

Often, the most effective way to diffuse a crisis is to reframe it. 

Ego allows Self to experience itself. The byproduct of this interaction is consciousness

Ego is not the enemy. The illusion/maya that forms our concept of identity is the “enemy.” “Ego death,” in actuality, would render most people incapable of functioning in the world, and the people who speak of “ego death” as though chasing the latest fad, are usually the people who believe there are shortcuts to Self Realization, and avoid repetition. Repetition is one of the most effective ways of learning, especially when repeating something you may not (initially) enjoy, which is essential, because when you engage in activity that is not pleasurable, you begin to hear how many thoughts are surfacing in mind on a consistent basis.

Ego identity rests on the sensory experience.

The sensory experience inebriates consciousness and distinguishes ego identity.

Our greatest advantage to maintaining the mind-body relationship is restoration of the Ego|Self axis.

While awareness of the senses is both easy and pleasurable, awareness of Self requires discipline and introspection, reinforcing the dualistic nature of creation, from the psyche to the cosmos. Even language is structured to reinforce our dependency on opposites–what was, wasn’t. You can do or not do. Something can be done or undone. 

All experience is, to some degree, a state of trance. Between hedonism and monasticism is Ushnika Hedi Go, Maintaining Awareness in Trance States. 






Complexes, Ego Identity, & Love

He who perceives all beings in his self, and his self in all beings, never criticizes. ~ Isha Upanishad (6)

At the core of our existence is authentic being/Supreme Self (SSElf). SSElf is insulated by clusters/complexes of repressed/un-confronted emotional residue which limit our ability to give expression to authentic being/SSElf. We acquire our complexes as a result of entanglement with ego identity. Ego identity is created by concepts, emotions, judgements and perceptions we make–as a result of becoming attached to our sensory experience–that are not in harmony with Natural Law.

Love is the highest expression of Natural Law/Universal/God/SSElf. Everything else is Ego. All life is a creative expression of the Universal, hence, creative expression is love.

How we treat and speak and think of others reflects the degree of harmony between ego and the Universal/SSElf. The greater the harmony, the greater the expression of love.

We may eliminate complexes by increasing the amount of love we possess.

“Anything you cling to is ego. Ego gets a boost by clinging onto things. Anytime you are able to let go, you are in love.” ~Om Swami

The Value of Evaluation

As children, many of us understood “discipline” as the consequences of misbehaving, ie. punishment.

Unfortunately, many of our childhood impressions form belief systems we carry with us throughout our life.

Part of maturing is recognizing that many of our childhood perceptions no longer serve our best interests. Evaluation is the art of recognizing the temporal and transient nature of value. Values provide moral currency to our decisions. Guilt is a result of making choices to think and act in ways that conflict with our values. Depression and anxiety are often the result of an established value system that is consistently in opposition to our current understanding of ourselves. This is why evaluation is so neccesry, because we can identify and eliminate values/belief systems that no longer support our ideal state or we recognize that our behaviour does not support values/belief system that is neccesary to maintain our ideal state.

As an adult, “discipline” is the art of behavior regulation. We realize the inherent power of discipline to empower our conscious intention and override and replace destructive habits of thought with harmonious affirmations leading to abundance.

The Seed of Thrive

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the control factor in this method of thought.

(1.24) The nature of our desire must be in harmony with natural law.

The method of thought to which we are referring is the ability to concentrate, which is our intentional conscious ability to maintain thoughts that support our ideal state.

Thoughts we choose to entertain represent our desires. We may be required to think about certain things as a result of our commitments, though we always have a choice with regards to the attitude we maintain with reference to these thoughts.

Our desires must be in harmony with natural law or the quality of our thought is possession rather than concentration. These two extremes of the same process may even feel the same, just as planting an apple seed and a tomato seed may feel the same, but when the seed takes root and bears fruit, the difference will become very apparent.

Does a farmer plant seed without knowing, first, the kind of harvest to prepare for? We can’t plant seeds of possession and expect to reap the fruits of concentration. Thus, we must take every opportunity to exercise our freewill by utilizing our ability to consciously introduce internal dialogues that support our ideal state. Eventually, these dialogues will become subconscious and will blossom into a predominant mental attitude that allows us to thrive.
