  • Spiritual Life and Kundalini

    I would like to discuss something that is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries of this existence.  Now realize, this subject is not something that I take lightly. And I highly suggest that under no circumstance are you to take it lightly, either. So much has been written about this spiritual subject and I am deeply curious if anyone truly understands the gravity of even talking about it. If you are at all serious about Kundalini, what is truly paramount is that you listen very carefully. You must strip every idea and every thought or concept you hold pertaining to it. The mind as thought can not grasp or comprehend it in any way. It is not something that can be explained. In fact, I doubt if words can even come close to any subjective undertaking. Kundalini, which in its basic terminology is a spiritual transformation that erupts within man as a transformative process to unite with the divine.

    Without experiencing this for oneself, you have no means of understanding the full significance of such a phenomenon.

    It is beyond the reach of mental comprehension. You must discover it for your self. In fact, it is of little meaning to even speak of it. This is one of the most sacred secrets hidden within man. When it is aroused within the fabric of ones being, you are stripped of all knowledge. All that you know is nullified. No one can truly prepare you for this. Those in yoga and all the so-called spiritual disciplines have attempted to bring this about and I question if it can be aroused by any superficial means. In fact, it is the beginning of the spiritual awakening in its pristine essence.

    Under no circumstance would I even suggest you try to prematurely bring this about without first preparing the groundwork.

    Every fiber of ones being may become so sensitized to the touch that even the wind can evoke great pain or delight. Every aspect of ones life must be in order on every level. This phenomenon can bring physical death, madness or if you are truly blessed, the blissfulness of enlightenment.

    If this should begin to erupt within you, there is no turning back. To attempt to halt such a powerful thing as kundalini may do even greater harm. You must relax and let it flow within you, naturally. It contains its own intelligence. You can only lay back and give way to this spiritual journey. The sense of self has to be completely vanquished. Perhaps, for the first time in your life, you will discover you have no power over this. It is the holistic movement of life itself.

    The movement of kundalini is forever new. That is why no one can truly explain what actually takes place. There are certain factors that one may deem as common factors. But, the experience is indescribable. And if you should be blessed to awaken fully to this energy that returns to the primordial source of all, you will discover absolute bliss. This spontaneous eruption of joy comes uninvited. There is no self to experience what takes place. It is beyond the realm of time and space. There is no measure for the mind to grasp and compare. It is beyond pleasure and all such chaos.

    The awakening of kundalini is a matter of living a holistic life and not one of partiality and disorder. Such spiritual transformation is the end of man. This is not evolution. It is the very ending of you as an entity in the field of time. It is the doorway to the eternal, here and now. Can you live in this? Can you live without your conscious self and all your selfish attachment to this life? A life free of all turmoil and conflict.

    This is not a psychical phenomenon. Kundalini is not a product of mind or theology. It is pure spirituality. Psychic things are of the no-mind, not beyond it. Spirituality is neither of the mind or the no-mind. So one may have psychic abilities and not be spiritual. But, to be spiritual transcends mental and psychic limitations.

    This awakening is a realization in which the ignorance of self has been in blindness all the while. Now this perception beyond the senses is awakening and one is no longer confined to time or mind. There is no ‘me’ to even experience this. Then you will discern the true meaning of meditation without a meditator. Ones whole being is completely empty and filled with this immeasurable living silence.

    In this empty fulfillment, one enters the divine presence within the here and now. It is here one discovers you do not become immortal, you discover you were trapped in the illusion and ignorance of mortality. This is the totality of all energy with neither a beginning nor end. Nothing can go beyond this. It is life untouchable, nameless and unborn. It is the most sacred thing of all. In fact, it is nothingness. It is the inextinguishable flame in which nothing and no one can fathom. The everlasting mystery and peace that transcends this mortal existence is your primordial being.

  • Spiritual Art ~ Freydoon Rassouli ~ In Spheres of Divine Light

    Freydoon Rassouli, born on November 18, 1943 in Iran, is a visionary artist who has a unique way of reflecting spiritual experience by expressing images from his subconscious onto canvas. He often stimulates creativity by meditating at dawn watching the sunrise in a natural setting, or by envisioning a mystical journey through a night sky. His style does not focus on what is literally seen by the artist, but by surrendering conceptually to what is felt on a deeper level. Rassouli’s painting technique is known as Fusionart, a style that he has created and registered and is presently teaching to many artists in Southern California. The main theme of Fusionart is cosmic unity. The painting style is derived from mysticism, near-eastern spirituality, and a foundation in European painting technology. The conceptual approach of Fusionart has been developing in Rassouli since early childhood, and it is evident in his paintings, reliefs, architectural design, sculptures, book illuminations and murals. He was born in Isfahan, Iran and was raised in a historical home decorated with murals and intricate floral designs. Inspired and encouraged by his mystic uncle, Rassouli developed an early appreciation for painting and mystical poetry, and spent endless hours taking lessons from classical and impressionist artists, and studying mysticism. Soon he discovered new ways to transform his subconscious images into forms that he could share with others. Recognized as “the best student

  • Alanna Zabel Opens the “The Seven Doors” of Independent Publishing with her Children?s Book Version of “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra

    Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2005

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    (PRWEB) October 8, 2005 — Alanna Zabel Opens the “The Seven Doors” of Independent Publishing with her children?s book version of “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra.

    Alanna Zabel has maintained independent publishing rights although joining forces with 40 times published author, Deepak Chopra. Alanna has written “The Seven Doors,” the children?s book version of Deepak?s “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.” She has published through Lulu Press (http://www.lulu.com), the world?s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.

    “The Seven Doors” is about a young, highly talented girl named Ruby who does not know what to do with all of her talent. One day while wondering through the forest she meets Ahanna, the Goddess of Light. Ahanna leads Ruby through The Seven Doors and ultimately The Seven Spiritual Laws which guide Ruby to find her dharma, or life-purpose. At the end of her journey, Ruby becomes Self-Realized and reaches the state of Union, or Yoga.

    Alanna Zabel teaches yoga at The Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA and directs the children?s yoga program there as well. She came to Lulu because she wanted to be in control of the publishing process and found Lulu?s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, the road of least effort, which ironically is Deepak?s fourth law. “The Seven Doors” is available for purchase at http://www.lulu.com, along with Alanna?s seven other children?s yoga books, including the very poplular, “A Chair in the Air.”

    ?Independent publishing and print-on-demand is the wave of the future,? said Alanna. ?It is exciting to be in control of my own creative projects. The Lulu process allows me to cut out the middle man (i.e. a separate publisher) and get my work out the way I want it. My book is much like Lulu itself?it puts control of your destiny into your own hands.?

  • What are the definitions of “atheist”, “spiritual” and “Pagan”?

    Question by .: What are the definitions of “atheist”, “spiritual” and “Pagan”?
    I am constantly informed that it is not possible to be spiritual or Pagan if you are an atheist.

    It’s the oddest thing, but I can not for the life of me find a dictionary that defines atheist as “Someone who is not spiritual” or “Someone who is not a Pagan”.

    However the numerous people here who inform me in questions, answers or private emails that an atheist can neither be spiritual nor Pagan seem to have read such a dictionary.

    I would be grateful if someone could direct me to that dictionary so that I may read the definitions myself.

    Best answer:

    Answer by Ax.
    Augh, can we just leave out the pagan definition? It has way too many variable sects and interpretations, it’s ridiculous.

    Atheism is simple, bare-bones court-of-law logic. Lack of evidence = no dice.

    Fail to prove a soul, god, deity, or anything of the super natural and expect a big fat NO.

    What do you think? Answer below!
