(4.25) Correct Scientific Thought is the ability to adjust our thought process to the will of the universal; to cooperate with natural law.

This is how we integrate knowledge. Knowledge must be the catalyst for adjusting our behavior to support our ideal state.

(4.26) This is acquired by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

Forces, ie. magnetism/cause and effect

Methods, ie. inductive reasoning

Combinations, ie. dialogue and activity replacement (pattern interupts)

(4.27) The universal mind is the basic fact of all existence.

(1.5) The universal mind is the life principle of every atom in existence.

(4.28) The cause of all lack, limitation, disease, disharmony and discord are the result of the exact same law. This law acts relentlessly and is continually bringing about conditions in correspondence to the thought that originated or created them.

Thought which does not support nature/universal mind (the principle of life to thrive) is responsible for every ill the human race has been afflicted (3.5).

(4.29) Inspiration is the art of self realization. It is the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the universal mind; a recognition of the omnipresence of omnipotence.

Self realization is awareness of self as distinct from ego. We must rise above “ego” to recognize it.

Omnipresence is existing everywhere.

Omniscience is unlimited knowledge.

(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think, thus, our quality of thought determines conditions we meet in life.

Our quality of thought can be measured by its support of natural law. Does our thought support the right of all life to thrive equally?

Deep Dive #2: Breath

Awareness of breath is often repeated in meditation and yoga circles. Intellectual knowledge is irrelevant to our well being unless we integrate knowledge. Thus, our awareness of breath must go beyond head knowledge into the realm of our experience.

Correct breathing begins with an exhale. This means your default position-how you find yourself when engaged in activities-should be with lungs full of oxygen. For this resons, athletes are trained to act in sync with the exhale. With lungs full of air, the mind tends not to wander. With lungs empty, ruminating mind begins chattering.

Holding the breath can be an effective strategy to keep us in the present moment, as long as we remain conscious that we are doing it, and why. If you train yourself to hold your breath as a default position, you will discover a whole new set of problems develop. All psychosomatic change will produce a result. The conditions of that result (desired or undesired) depend upon a continuing awareness of how our thoughts and actions influence experience.

Tantrics are often reluctant to share techniques because without discipline and consistency they can be harmful to the physical body. This includes advanced nostril breathing.

In many ways the subconscious is already doing a fine job keeping the body running. How much do you want to compromise subconscious behavior? Put another way, if you could devote your concentrated attention to anything, why devote it to something the subconscious is already doing well? You don’t have to tell your heart to pump or make any of the millions of decisions to keep you alive, so think very carefully before you start tinkering with what’s already working or you may mess it up.

Like all strategies, unless they are constantly developing, they can turn from tools into weapons. Intentional repetition loses its effectiveness when it becomes habitual, which is why we must constantly introduce new challenges to our practice.

Tantra is not about quick fixes but about cultivating mastery, which is an ongoing task.


Courage and discipline are the most basic and valuable skills we need to make it through life.

Unfortunately, great misunderstanding surrounds these concepts.

Violence will either excite or stimulate fear. Each has their own problems. Awareness of your predisposition is a prerequisite to the examination of patterns that result. These habits reveal our belief systems, both inherited and unique.

Habits must be replaced with rituals, which are intentional demonstrations of mindfulness acquired discipline.

Discipline is not being corrected by others but the cultivation of self control. Courage is not about blindly charging into the unknown but proceeding with confidence that your character is strong enough to see you through undesirable conditions.

Learning is more than acquiring new information, it is the process by which mind learns how to problem solve. For this reason, remain eager to learn, developing new strategies to cope with new complexities. Above all, make application of knowledge you have gained or knowledge remains theoretical. When knowledge becomes experience, we inherit wisdom.

Destructive thinking is the source of all evil. Instant gratification is the root; character is the stem and our actions are fruit.

Constructive thinking is a recognition of the creative nature of thought and our ability to control it. Discipline, courage and learning weave together to form the root. Character is the stem and our actions are fruit.

Instant gratification is the root of all evil. It is the defining factor when determining intention.

Learn to deny yourself anything. This is the surest method to regain governance of your mind from your drives. This requires the cultivation of discipline, exercised through the muscle of willpower. Proceed through hardship as though it were neccesary to avoid a greater challenge ahead, utilizing the opportunity to develop new skills to cope with unanticipated conditions. Stop only doing what’s comfortable.

Rituals are intentional, habits are predictable. Have daily rituals at appointed times. Create scheduled events between rituals.

Be gentle with yourself.

When maintainence of this discipline becomes your priority you will inherit a new predominant mental attitude. Your predominant mental attitide defines your character and communicates your substance to those around you. This subtle force is how we unconsciously make decisions about others; the human equivalent of dogs sniffing each other’s ass.

Your predominant mental attitude is developed, unlike your persona, which is conditional. Personas are the masks we wear to appear relevant in survival situations, be that the workplace, on transit, at church or in the ring.

Rejection stimulates obsession. Social Power is the great manipulation. A relationship without compromise perpetuates seduction.

At least half of everyone having sex is getting fucked.

Depression is the shadow of fear. Fear is engineered by ego as a tool to cope with trauma. Confrontation between ego and fear produces thought.

Imagination is unrestrained thought. Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation.

Fantasy must not be confused with desire. Fantasy must remain unattainable or the subconscious will direct our decisions to an inevitable confrontation with our object of thought. The nature of this confrontation depends upon the virtue of our thoughts.

Virtue is steadfastness of character. Character is the offspring of discernment. Discernment is the evidence of wisdom.

Rituals will not save you from undesirable conditions, they empower you to cope with conditions without compromising a constructive predominant mental attitude.

Our attitude toward fear is determined by our tendency to attack or defend.

Violence may be eliminated through the dissolution of fear. We may eliminate fear by a recognition of the creative nature of thought and our ability to control it.

Civility is a mutual agreement between those who benefit from and adhere to its conditions.

Every deviation from these conditions reinforces the illusion of civil society.

Learning is a result of deviation. Suffering is a product of resistance. Peace is an expression of compliance.

When anticipation becomes expectation, we are caught up in fantasy.

Obtainable thoughts are goals.

Fear indicates repressed agression.

Violence indicates repressed fear.


(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

Dissolution is process of bringing to an end. Selfish thought, therefore, is the beginning of the end to an awareness of expanding consciousness. This does not mean consciousness stops expanding, it means we are no longer aware of it. When this happens, nature will intervene, which usually includes suffering. Suffering gets our attention and reminds us not be to selfish.

We often have to lose something (dissolution) to confront our true intention and love (or lack of) for others.

(7.24) Our greatest interest will be conserved by a recognition of the fact that it is just as essential to give as it is to receive.

Giving reinforces a desire not to be selfish. Giving also creates room to receive. We often have no room for new opportunities in our life because we are still clinging to things, people and belief systems that are no longer serving us. Giving is as much an act of “letting go” as it is of blessing others.

In Harmony With Natural Law: A Template


The Psychological Types (PT) associated with the two poles of psyche are classic Vedanta interpretations. Within this system, a specific type of Yoga corresponds with each PT. The chart above also includes the Jungian (J) equivalent of Vedanta Psychological types.

Perceiving and Judging are the two methods by which psyche discriminates information.

Active (sensation) and Meditative (intuition) are perceiving functions, while Intellectual (thinking) and Emotional (feeling) are judging functions.

Attitude Awareness may be considered the predominant mental attitude needed to maintain a healthy awareness of the respective PT function.

“Personal Responsibility” refers to an ongoing and consistent awareness that our thoughts and choices matter. Our choice to respond instead of react to the conditions of life is our greatest expression of freewill.

“Grass is Greener” refers to an ongoing and consistent awareness that the grass is greenest right here, right now, because this is where you are. While it is important to have goals, we must be diligent not to overlook what we can think and must do in the present.

“Object of Thought” refers to an ongoing and consistent awareness that what we think about affects our perception of conditions we encounter.

“Gratitude” refers to an ongoing and consistent appreciation for the conditions unfolding in our life, trusting that nature is perpetually working towards becoming conscious of itself.

Nature/Brahman (Universal Mind) exists within each individual as Atman (Self), a threefold personality that may be supported by Willpower, Mindfulness, and Ritual.

Willpower is the muscle of freewill. Like all muscles, it must be used or it will atrophy.

There is no meditation without mindfulness. Emotion without mindfulness is ego manipulation.

Ritual is the active cultivation of discipline. Habit is passive & compliant resignation. There is no meaningful ritual without willpower inspired mindfulness.

Together, Willpower, Mindfulness, and Ritual are the three qualities of behavior that identify if an individual is in harmony with natural law.


You may think of the four psychological types in a kind of rank. Along the Judging axis, Superior (top) and Inferior (bottom). Along the Perceiving axis, 2nd Superior (left) and 2nd Inferior (right). Your superior function may be feeling, not thinking, and thus, you would place that at the top. You may also need to adjust the poles of the perceiving axis to your own experience. Further, you may also want to determine wether you are an introvert or an extrovert.

6.24-26~ The Law Of Vibration

(6.24) Thought is spiritual and therefore creative and correlates with it’s object and brings it into manifestation.

We’ve all heard the familiar saying, “Be careful what you wish for.” Typically, the “moral” communicated in this saying is that if we our wishes were to be granted, they would not solve our problems. While this is true, there is much more to this wise saying.

There was once a young man who was very depressed because he was smitten with a local women whose family had arranged for her to marry his best friend. He wandered into the surrounding hills and was prepared to throw himself into the ravine when he came across a guru who was deep in meditation. As the young man cared nothing for his life, he thought nothing of interrupting the guru. 

“Why does the universe conspire against me?” the young man asked.

The guru continued meditating, and the young man continued to ask the guru, again and again. he began kicking dust at the guru and shouting his question. 

“You think the universe conspires against you because it does not do what you want? Foolish man. Your wish has been granted. Go and leave me in peace.”

The young man was ecstatic and returned to the village feeling as though his life had been given back to him. As he entered the village, there was great wailing and mourning. As it turns out, a lion had killed his best friend while he was hunting. Now the young man was free to marry the object of his desire.  He hadn’t wanted his friend to die, though. That was unfortunate, but he had his wish.

After the marriage, life grew very complicated. His new wife did not fit in very well with his family, nor he with hers. Their first three children died in childbirth and eventually his wife cheated on him. 

In less than five years, the young man was back in the hills, prepared to throw himself in the ravine when he spotted the old guru, still in meditation.

He approached the old man.

“Why has the universe conspired against me?’ he asked.

This time, the old man guru spoke without hesitation, “The universe had a plan. You didn’t like it, so it granted your wish, and you still don’t like it.  As long as you consider a conspiracy anything you do not desire, you will always be miserable.”

(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. 

(6.25) The Law of Vibration is the Natural law brought into operation by this activity.

(4.17) …All natural laws are invincible, unchangeable, and act with mathematical certitude – without deviation or variation.

(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, controls, changes or destroys a lower rate of vibration.

Higher means harder. The atoms that vibrate to form the table that keep your computer from falling are vibrating very fast. The atoms in paper that allow you to tear it in two are vibrating very slow. If you want to put you hand through a desk as easily as you rip the paper, you need to develop a higher rate of vibration that the atoms holding together the table.

The ability to concentrate is facilitated by rapid vibration. When you are watching TV otherwise susceptible to hypnotism, your mind is vibrating slowly – thoughts are scattered and you are easily led around by whatever catches your attention from moment to moment.

6.28-30~ Unlimited Power

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

Mankind’s highest reasoning faculty is consciousness: the process of ego translating experience to Self. This process is demonstrable by observation (individuation/inquiry) and participating (thinking), which results in Self Realization. 

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

This system will meet every human requirement or necessity because Universal Mind is omniscient; it is a vast storehouse of unlimited power.

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

True science may be understood as observation. True religion may be understood as participation. Anything beyond observation and participation is-at best-commentary and at worst, rhetoric.


5.24.25~ Food for Thought

(5.24) We may connect with omniscience by our ability to think, which is our ability to act upon the Universal Energy, and what we think is produced or created in the objective world.

Omniscience is limitless power. Our ability to think is our ability to access, utilize, and depend upon limitless power. Limitless Power is Universal Energy, which is one form of Universal Mind. If Universal Mind is the sun, Universal Energy is the heat that radiates from the sun. As we know from observation, without the heat that radiates from the sun, life–in it’s present forms–would not exist in our galaxy. Likewise, the energy that radiates/vibrates from the sun of our body (solar plexus) determines the quality of “life” that we experience. Food is a great example.

(3.30) the Universal is static and requires energy to start it in motion. This is furnished by food which is converted into energy which–in turn–allows the individual to think. When he stops eating, he stops thinking. Then he no longer acts upon the universal. There is, consequently, no action or interaction. The Universal is pure mind in static form; mind at rest. 

Fasting has traditionally been a means to exercise willpower over the body while “descending” into the Self. I am neither endorsing or condemning this practice, only pointing out what it is because many people don’t understand the actual purpose of fasting, regardless of their intention. Some people fast because they think it makes them healthier. Maybe this is true and maybe it is not, but what is certain is that fasting 1) Supports Willpower (consciousness) 2) Leads us into the Unconscious. The key is finding the right balance. More specifically, it is important to know that our actions are not conflicting with our desired outcome. To become absorbed in the unconscious is not going to help you much if you have an important business meeting, because you will hardly be able to function at a cognitive level necessary to exude confidence in others. Conversely, engaging your mind in memory recall will not facilitate a state of no mind you may be wanting to achieve during your meditation. Looking at the Ego|Self axis, we may consider Ego representative of consciousness and Self representative of the Unconscious. Self Realization is the energy that radiates from the Ego|Self axis; it is a result of the polarity between these two extremes.

(5.25) The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous. It opens unprecedented and limitless opportunity.


Awareness that thought puts us in touch with infinite power creates unprecedented and limitless opportunity. How good is an appliance if you do not plug it in? Your mind is like an appliance, and if you do not plug it into Universal Energy, then it’s usefulness will be limited to rumination based on sensory experience. This is a method of existence may be compared to those who live as though asleep. They are asleep only in the sense that they are unaware of the potential they have to plug the mind into the source of power it requires.

Ruminating mind still produces thought, just as eating GMO and pesticide filled foods will still provide the energy we require to think. The difference is in quality. A freshly prepared meal in a restaurant offers a different quality than 49 cent hamburgers at a local fast food chain. And the quality of our food determines the quality of our thought.




5.21~ Tripping

(5.21) Consciousness is the real secret of power because whenever we become conscious of power it is invariably manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.

Consciousness may be understood as degrees of awareness. We are only conscious/aware of the world as it relates to our experience. If you’ve never tried coffee, you are not aware of what coffee tastes like. As an infant child, you were not aware of the day to day situations your parents may have encountered in traffic and at work. It was not until became aware of riding in the car and eventually learning to drive that you could appreciate that specific laws are in place to ensure driving is not entirely chaotic.

Similarly, as we mature in our consciousness, we are responsible to adapt our behavior to remain in harmony with the new standards or laws which we have discovered. This is a crucial point that many people try to avoid because it means change.

When we were children and someone tied our shoes for us, we were not aware of the need to tie our laces. As we grew and perhaps tripped a few times on our untied laces, we learned to appreciate the value in adapting our behavior. This value is usually measured by how change can save us from harm. We tie our shoes so that we don’t trip. The other side of that coin is that we become less mindful as we walk. Being aware of this, we must make a renewed effort to remain mindful.

Consciousness is brought forth into tangible expression in the form of responsibility. Regardless of wether we tie our shoe laces, we know the value of tying them, so if we trip on them, we can only blame ourselves.
