The great Darwin numbnuts awards from the 2011..!!


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain..inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!

*note* The Darwin awards  site (or the http://www.darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin2011.html )  is created by Wendy Northcutt  believe it or not.. here is her pic.. quote "Wendy Northcutt (born September 17, 1963) is an author of a series of books on the Darwin Awards and the creator of the DarwinAwards.com website.)...dayum she is good,indeed!

Northcutt was interviewed by Mark Emmons of the San Jose Mercury News. Emmons states that "Northcutt considers herself a potential Darwin Award candidate. She describes herself as a klutz."

When interviewed by Salon.com she said "If there are multiple stupidity genes, then having one or two might make someone creative, while having a dozen would make her a dangerous idiot."

In an interview with a blogger Wendy said that running the Darwin Awards website takes up all of her time. She said, “I always feel like I’m neglecting my audience, even though I work more than full time.” She also talked about how the Darwin Awards successfully made the transition from being an online publication to being an offline one. The interview mentions that publishers asked her to "remove the stories from the internet. But Wendy was adamant: 'It was a community! I could not do that. Even though it might have cost me a lot of money, I kept saying no.'”

In a 2001 interview with CNN, Northcutt commented that "Before (the awards became popular), we were an insular community and we could make fun of people and those people (or their families) would never find out. But as it got bigger, I realized there was more and more danger of really hurting people." Therefore she treats the subjects of her stories with compassion, and suggests that those who read her books are likely to become more careful with explosives.
LOL..gotta love this woman for her HUGE balls..I love her already!..kiss to you..says the mahayogi! 
-added by Danny-

ps..nothing like the citta(citta is your present mind-emotions in action..as in this very second) trying to know itself ...it's powers are absolute in origine,since it created the universe itself..it has NO FEAR since it knows it's nature only by experimenting itself as individuality..but when it experience itself as in it's pure,brilliant and silent form,the result is bliss,powers,and immortality... Nirvana..for whom?

For the individual YOU,of course..ponder,grasshoppers from heaven...kiss:)..for the awareness is the source,but you are the kripto spirit,it's child..ponder...

The Source will eliminate(separate) you,or itself.....and by elimination(splitting it's power of creation from the created shadows of itself) I mean IT gives you pain,so you'll try to escape it..and by doing that,return to the Source..see??..because remember..without pain and suffering you'd never EVER try to find ANY solution,and you'd not develop your mighty kripto within you..see??(you are IT as projection..it eliminates itself,or it's projection rather..is more like a sunshine ray going thru a prism,and separating itself in many colors??..well..you are that color,and the source in the same time,right?..you understand my superior 12 inch brain wisdom muscle now?..grasshoppers from heaven??..good..if not,I'll  explain you again and again till your onion like coyote's eyeballs will pop up from your forehead..trust me..kiss:))) if you don't try to find the pure desire of the Source itself..TO KNOW YOURSELF!..for IT knows itself only thru you!!!

Thus spokenth the mahayogi ..and the grasshoppers bowed down to his superior wisdom brain muscles from heaven..and kissed his large cuban cigar...while the mahayogi went into the forest to smoke it alone by himself..for himself was the universe puffing,but nobody knew it..kiss:)

Planking Spanking
2011 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin 

 

15 May 2011, Brisbane, Australia | PLANKING? What is it? 'Planking' is the peculiar wit of lying flat as a plank in unusual locations--train tracks, fire hydrants, clotheslines--and posting public photographs, spreading joy. This Australian craze had infected poor Mr. Acton B., a (former) planking enthusiast who was not aware that Balconies Are The #1 One Cause of Gravity-Fed Darwin Awards. Not knowing, he was doomed to repeat the lesson. Camera ready, the 20-year-old stretched himself out face-down on the railing, arms by his sides, stiff as a plank, balanced. Don't do it, don't cross that line young male Homo sapiens sapiens! Oh no...the species is doomed. Down he fell. Descent of man. PLANKING happened on 15 May 2011, Brisbane AU. Although we do not have a photograph of the actual event, we encourage reporters to re-enact the scene for your own cameras. No, really, go ahead.
Planking is nothing without a photograph. The men down under have risen to the top of the zany photos crop, planking naked, planking on police cruisers, planking here, there, and across the desks on TV Network News. Planking has well and truly jumped the shark.
READER COMMENTS:
"Natural selection nudged him over the line, and he fell..."
"Planking is bound to remove people from the gene pool."
Please be careful where you plank! :)
Watch out for balconies :-)

Steven Victor Tallarico (Steven Tyler) As bomb bursting in the air ..


Lead me from dreaming to waking.

*note* nothing like a Steven Tyler singing the national anthem of the United States...at his almost 64 years age.
Obviously he had no juice left in his wisdom muscles pipe,since he modified the words "around 0:53 on the video he screams like a coyote telling the truth at last...  "As bomb bursting in air"

You may ask me why I love Steve...well..I just do..
Check out his singing of Amazing Grace song..

The Three Books of the Absolute by Richard Rose explained..


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain..inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!

*note*...from http://www.richardrose.org/ThreeBooks.pdf
The Three Books of the Absolute by Richard Rose
Book I
Out of the valley of the river came a wanderer. Peace was in his eye and
his soul was wrapped in Nirvana. Peace to the wanderer.
O Eternal Essence, I was that Wanderer. I it was who left the gardens of
tranquility that I might labor for Truth.
I sought Thee, O Eternal Essence, in the grottoes and in the tabernacles. I
called out thy name to the stone ears of statues. And thou answered not.
I sought Thee in the voice of nature. I looked for Thee in the footprints of
animals, in the habits of birds. I listened for a revelation in the murmuring of
waters and in the soft moaning of the forests. I laid my ear against the roaring
cataracts and bared my head to the tempests. But Thou answered not.
I have sought Thee, O Eternal Essence, within my self. I have sought Thee
in my mind until I was cursed with confusion. And I saw Thee not.
Then, O Eternal Essence, I sought Thee whence I came. I sought Thee in
my womb. As the wild beast flees from the elements into his cavern where his
wild dam littered him, so I fled the darkness of my clay. And naught did I find
but the turbulence of my imagination. There in chaotic pattern did I find the
seeds of all confusion that pretended to be wisdom. Where man was born was
also born his gods. Where man was born was also born his demons. And where
in glorious pain, man first raised his foetal head, there too in ignominious joy
was he devoured.
My eyes are extinguished although I see the earth beneath me. And my
ears are destroyed and my mouth speaks no words for my feet carry me through
a realm that needs no language. And my mind is silent and humble in its
dismay, and all within that House there is not one thought. And within that
House is heard the painful tolling of a tiny silver bell, and within that dome is
felt the surge of mighty roaring tides that will not be stopped.
For the keeper of the House is gone, and all that remains testifies that he
never was. Exploding thunder shakes its walls, and heaven and hell are within
its region. For All is within that House, swelling it to burst its comprehension.
All joy is here, and all joy is pain, torturing the House that cannot contain it.
All of joy is tears, and the world will not contain the reaving sorrow of
this House. All this House is fire, straining to burst forth until these walls stand
no longer.
O lamentations of lamentations, has thy agony no tongue? O sorrower in
the spaces of desolation, who shall hear thy anguish, and unless it be heard, how
shall the pain be stopped?
I, O Eternal Essence, beseech Thee,--where within Thee have I dissolved
myself?
Where are prisoned those who follow love? Where have I left my I-ness,
and now having left it, who is it that cries out to Thee? Where is the dirge of
sorrow that is all that remains of me? Who feels this pain that burns and
consumes, yet is felt not by I-who-am-no-more? Who is it that looks from the
windows of my mansion like a strange prowler? Who is it that hears and hears
not, that yearns for life and lives not, that seeks out death and dies not....?
O Ever-Allness, what is Thy pleasure in my sorrow? Thou hast damned
me to thoughtlessness, and yet I cannot leave off thinking, and still my thoughts
are not words. Thou hast robbed me of my soul and mind, and my body
laments for all ages, for my body dies not nor yet walks among men. Thou hast
delivered me from my Ego, and what is there that remains? O Ever-Allness,
forever insensate, pitiless to entreaty, speechless to my prayers,--weep Thou
with me for I am of Thee....and all that remains of me is Thee.
What is the magnitude of Thy nothingness! O what are the limits of Thy
plentitude!....What is the thunder of Thy silence!....How quiet are Thy
cataclysms! Thus shall I sing the praises of myself.
Peace to the wanderer!
Book II
Who shall hear of Moses, Gotama, or Amenhotep, if hearing is not?
Although Jesus weep and Socrates drown, who shall hear their anguish if there is
not hearing?
Who shall know of love and godliness, of peace and serenity, if
knowledge is not?
Who shall not perish in the heavy seas of forgetfulness if knowledge is
not....Though his convulsions and agony for life be mountainous,--shall he not
perish....?
Though the worlds scream from their vertiginous orbits, how can they
cast themselves down while knowing is not....Though the stars roar in anguish at
their distances, who shall know of their roaring?
How can the atom know of the sea....How shall the atom know of the
universe....?
How shall the spaces know of their nothingness....How shall nothingness
hear the agony of nature that cries out against it....?
Where, where is where....? Why, why is why? Where O wise among wise,
is when....? In what drifting sandheaps are its footprints....in what continuum is
etched its lightning rate like music etched on ice?
Who, who is who....? Can the sage, more the fool, say that which is
being....and among beings, who are what? Is the spark an entity, or is it merely
part of the flame, and is the flame only illusory heat, or does it live?
Is not man a question asking questions, frustrated by the unanswered,
laboring to answer himself....and creating a mountain of questions in the
answer....yet who shall know?
Who shall know the circle that has no radius, and who shall know the
point that is a line of infinity....?
Where is maya....If all is maya, who, knowing, sees this illusion? Is not
his knowing also maya....?
In what pitiful hells are the wise....In what blackest abysses are the
oblivious ignorant....?
How shrill is the hunger of inertia,--how maddening the stupor of
extinction that comes from action?
O wise and foolish, look about you in your joys. Where are the joys of
yesterday....and being gone, did they ever live? Did you enjoy, or was it
another's lips that drained thy cup?
Hear the voice of shadows....Look about you into the invisible memories
of the ether. Where are they?
What matters it if the infant staves,--if the angel is raped,--or if the saint
burns upon the spit? Are they not gone....is not the sorrow gone? And who shall
remember....since knowing is not....who can hear their anguish?
Where are the beautiful....Where is their beauty washed by the
years....where are the years drowned in the ocean of the Unknowing?
Think ye on the folly of light. Does it not perish when the eyes are
closed? But the power over us by light is feared by man. He sleeps and dreams
of darkness, and wakens, screaming into it....
Relax ye and die and live the darkness, and enter the impassive pool of
the Unknowing....
Who shall extol the memory of man that leaves him often before his
life....Who remembers after life? If man forgets his infancy before his manhood is
upon him,--what shall he remember hence....shall he remember nothingness?
Desist and enter the pool of the Unknowing....
What is time, O mind....? Is it the number of steps in a day,--the number
of thoughts in a step....? Then of the thoughts in a day, how many years of days
would it take to know all that is know, and then how long,--to know the
magnitude of the Unknowing....and how many steps will take thee from here to
there? Who shall anoint thy limbs?
Though he who forgets more seems greater than he who strived not and
died in ignorance....who shall know....who shall know? Mourn ye for the hour
when the cloud of the Unknowing passes and the falseness of light dazzles the
eye. For the light is a liar unto the Light, and the light is the darkness of the
mind. Yet who shall know....?
I is dead. Death is dead and life has no living....All that remains is All.
I of the cloudier corpus is slain. It is slain that the "I" of the mind might
live.
"I" of the mind is slain, for the "I" of the spirit to live.
"I" of the spirit is slain that the spirit may come into its glory.
"I" of the spirit shrinks from the vanity of life. Space is upon it. Space
towers above it, silently mocking its absence, and the spirit takes its leave like a
thought....like the vapors and like the solitary sound that is heard not....
Eternity wanders through infinity like a blind minnow in an empty ocean
whose bounds are limitless....Yet who can see its boundlessness?
Eternity probes itself like a blind idiot for it know not its immensity, and
it roars and rages in its madness because it cannot find its edges. Yet who can
hear its roaring....?
And the candles of time are lit, and their wax congeals in cold
spheres....but they burn so long and dir so quickly that no man knows if they
burn.
Eternity convulses in its pralaya, seeking for definition.
Death agonizes silently for motion....And all that remains is All.
O who shall hear of this anguish, for all that remains is All.
Book III
O Dream of Dreams, tell me, where is the dreamer?
O Dream of Dreams of Dreams, tell me, where is the dreamer?
O Dreamer, speak unto me,--in which of these dreams wilt thou be found?
O Dreamer, speak unto me, art thou the dreamer in the Dream, or the
dreamer of the Dream?
O Dreamer, answer me,--if thou speakest unto thyself, and hear the sound
of thy voice and reply unto it,--are there then two people speaking, or is it but
one?
O Dreamer answer me,--how many people are dreaming thy dream?
O eternal spaces, art thou black or white....Is thy form clothed in light or
darkness?
Reply unto me
Who walketh in wakefulness,
Knowing not if wakefulness be but an illusion of wakefulness,
Or if sleep be the door of the Absolute....
Or if sleep be the dreamer awake....
Speak unto me
Not in the ringing of my ears
That know not if such stridency be the dawning of new perception,--
Or the damnation of all that was real.
O world, where are thou, that but a second past, clung to my feet?
Where in space am I caught?
O love, where are thy children,--the friends of my youth?
Who has frozen them in eternal ice until they stand in transient memory,
seeming as statues....?
Who has placed the halter of time upon their necks, to swing them in the
listless abysses of silence....?
O never-never-forever....why art Thou?
O tender I-ness forgive me....O lovable I-ness forgive me....for my hand
has shattered the mirror, and I can see thee not.
O hunger that begets creation, O wistful memory of myself, O transient Iness,
forgive me....for the probing finger has shattered the veil of illusion.
I have shattered the chimera of all Knowing....and all that I know is
naught.
Time did I seize in the fingers of my mind, and that which seemed to
move as a phantom did I hold in my fingers....
The peoples of the earth did I see, all that had lived or will live, and their
thoughts were upon their faces.
Beneath my feet did I seize space, and that which seemed afar was near,
and beneath my feet I suppressed the mountains....and yet did the cool oceans
rise harmlessly to my nostrils.
And in all this land there was not one sound, for my fingers held all time,
and in time are the fields of motion. So that no atom stirred, nor did one audible
wave afflict the ether.
For the blood of the serpent is coagulated, and in its mind all thoughts are
one.
And I saw the voices of men....and I saw the beautiful patterns of
motion....but the world was as still as death.
And I saw the beauty as it liveth....yet no color was upon the eye.
The rose upon the bush was only a pale weed, yet Red and Pink shook
the shimmering twilight with their loveliness....and the soft perfume of memory
tinted the Void with its essence.
I saw the flight of the swallow, rolling across dimension like a silent surf.
And as I looked, I saw the emerald dye of the deep, drawn from the
ocean's waves....and even the whiteness melted before the snow on the
mountaintop.
Plain was the picture. Plain was the picture for I had concentrated upon
color and motion....and now they were no more.
Strange was the land for I concentrated upon dimension until it waxed
and waned, and that which seemed small was as great as that which seemed
great.
The nightingale sang in the gloaming....but his beak is now silent....and
yet his song liveth forever.
O friend of my childhood, O lovable I-ness, what have I done to my
world? For I have turned my eye upon it and delivered it unto chaos!
And now I look upon the looker....Twice I see myself and then I see
myself no more.
I see myself as a suppressor of mountainous space and a conqueror if
time. Mighty are my sinews, as I stand upon the mountain.
Then I see myself as an infinitesimal man in the infinitude of
humanity....caught in the congealed blood of life.
I see this tiny man, happy, living, responding to illusions of color and
motion and dimension, and happy in his response, knowing not the illusion of
his indulgence in non-existent happiness.
And looking upon the tiny man, I see his joys leave him, for joy is a thing
apart.
And looking upon him I see his response leave him because motion is a
thing apart.
And seeing these things my heart burns with love for existence.
Yes, I on the mountain, conqueror of illusion, now weep for the beauty of
illusion.
And looking back into the panorama below, I, the mountained man,--I the
consciousness absolute, see that the tiny man now no longer liveth....for life is a
thing apart.
And since he no longer liveth, he cannot see me as I see him, nor can he
see himself as I see him, nor can he ever know of his joys that are things
apart....or know of his love which is now a thing apart.
And knowing his love and his longing for the pattern, I on the mountain
bewail and sorrow in his loss.
Great is my anguish in his silence, great is my agony in his loss.
And feeling my agony, I on the mountain, know that I am the tiny man in
the endless cavalcade.
And soon I see, looking ahead, that all my joys are not, that all my love is
not, that all my being is not.
And I see that all Knowing is not. And the eminent I-ness melts into the
embraces of oblivion.
It melts into the embraces of oblivion like a charmed lover, fighting the
spell and languishing into it.
And now I breathe Space and walk in Emptiness. My soul freezes in the
void and my thoughts melt into an indestructible blackness.
My consciousness struggles voiceless to articulate and it screams into the
abysses of itself. Yet there is no echo.
All that remains is All.
My spark of life falls through the canyons of the universe, and my soul
cannot weep for its loss....for lamentation and sorrow are things apart.
All that remains is All.
The universe passes like a fitful vision.
The darkness and the void are part of the Unknowing....
Death shall exist forever....
Nothingness is Everywhere….
Silence is forgotten....
All that remains is ALL.
*note*  Richard Rose wrote this poem after his traumatic realization he's had,when he realized he didn't exist anymore than a Barbie Girl made of plastic exists...

His first idea after he's seen the truth was to kill himself again..I say AGAIN because of his former tries to kill himself in his youth...but then again,if you think dying is the solution,you are greatly in error..like   Richard Rose was EVEN AFTER his REALIZATION he was in error.(this is what happens if one gets the mind realization,but not the joy part..by the way....because even so the MIND is the pattern,the joy is the POWER...ponder my mahayogi words!!)

Again....he never managed to give anyone his realization,or to teach his way of self-realization,because there was none...so he decided in his delusion that ,,there is no way,,..other then the intense searching...because there is no recipe for a ,,thunder strike,, as he called it..(he got his realization after a hard trauma of finding that his girlfriend future wife was a lesbian...and he said,,that's it...no more of pain for me..and he truly meditated at last without hopes...be aware that before this incident  he committed suicide again when he was young(like 17 yo) by ingesting some rats poison...he did it  because some barbie plastic girl from his village he loved proved to be a whore,and he tried to kill himself..but you see..you don't DIE easily if your pure DESIRE is right..for you'll be protected )

I talked to some of his disciples and they explained me how tough he was,and how he'd kick my ass if I ever met him...those people are deluded...for the simple fact that he developed the mind reading powers,that one by itself is not a sign of realization...and trust me...I am tougher then he was ever..for he was still in the mind realm,and I am not...I read THOUGHTS for breakfast..trust the mahayogi!!!


The fact that he has died insane..due to Alzheimer's disease
is not a very proof of his abilities...what he represented from my point of view is the power of pure desire,combined with sheer will vector of the MIND....what is interesting is that you can actually see the soul of the person by the way the person looks...and his/her face..is true those changes are not relevant from the absolute point of view,but since the consciousness (or the soul ..the soul is just the spirit manifesting ) is tight to the body,the face never betrays your lack of joy...

Now watch this fruitcake's face... whom was realized in the MIND aspect only,and explain me where is his joy..guess the mind reading abilities went down the drain while he was in the mental nuts hospital..for 10 years before he finally died,and spare us of his calamity of knowing the MIND without JOY....which he inflicted on his followers..

You see..the JOY of the spirit is also a POWER ..the fact that it splits in myriads consciousness factors(the one you call ,,,soul,,) it doesn't mean is separated...is THE VERY source of the creation,one with your very thin hairs on your ass...trust ME!..so shave your ass,and become a Buddha,says the mahayogi..and the grasshoppers from the 10 realms did it...and they were happy at last..Halleluyah,brothers from heaven!!..cried out the mahayogi..

.But if you think he had any joy...think again....what amazes me is that he actually wrote in some book of his this very sentence ,,check out any avenue,,..yet...he never did it...his system of self-realization was to use mind,since he knew no better..maybe his 10 years spent in the sanatorium before he died taught  him a lesson..since he lost all his mind,and forgot at LAST that he was not a person,and NEITHER everybody was(even so he knew it..he still tried to inflict his own pattern of self-realization to others..which is his insanity he had to pay for before his clumsy death,as a vegetable..

Remember a true MASTER dies willingly...he HAS powers beyond beliefs..there is no SUCH thing as being ruled by the elements,and one of the elements is the very consciousness factor..some Masters went poof into the light..some died with earthquakes...but none of the true MASTERS didn't show their true abilities at the time of death....some modified their bodies...some as the Buddha moved his leg while in the coffin...some did all kinds of miracles things....be careful..they wanted to inspire people on their path,by showing off their powers in the last second..TRUST ME!...for that was their last time to show people their TRUE powers..if they had any,of course..)

Because you KNOW a true master the way he dies...not the way he lives...  this is the time to recognize a true master,indeed....because when you'll loose your body and mind..that is the time to show if you really had any powers over life or death...since a true master masks himself during life..why is that?..because on this realm both saints and devils are mixed...there are other realms where they are separated,but not on earth...TRUST the mahayogi!..

Show me you gave a system,clear meditation techniques..and mostly mask your own experiences,because nobody would understand those anyway (like the time I went poof into the light,and I was the light..or the time I projected my  body just to scare some people....or to make them happy...)...and the MOSTLY..do NOT MAKE people worship YOU..this is very important ...because they'll loose their own POWER if they do that!!..that's why I prefer to be crucified then worshiped....because there is no difference between you and me,other then the realization level of my own nature..and my own nature is also your OWN divine nature!!..Ponder..grasshoppers from heaven...a true MASTER is the one whom makes YOU a master  !!...kiss")

You see..grasshoppers from heaven..the pure desire to know the truth is innate..you are either born with it,or not...is not something you could build up..because that would be the end of all your illusions..and the ego(false ideas about surviving,powers and stuff..) will not give up,since it doesn't KNOW it is a FAKE!!..see?..and any attempts to bypass that pure desire will give you so much suffering in your  life,that you'll PONDER again about your source within...see?

Willingly or not..you'll be forced..by the kripto spirit within you...is not something you could choose,or select.

Is not something you can pray for...or teach people...why you THINK Jesus was crucified for ?..he'd tried to explain,and that was the result..they killed him on the cross...this is what happens if you try to explain too much,indeed...the buddhists who meditated in the caves alone were the best..at least they were not trying to change the formidable collective thought-forms...

You have no chance(unless you're a mahayogi like me,loved in the 3 worlds,worshiped in 10..etc..and unless you by-passed the illusion of self,AND the illusion of the OUTER self..then you'll understand that everyone you meet is a projection of you..and stop the internal split..because most everybody I've met whom claimed they were meditating,they were actually playing with their thoughts in their minds...not for a second realizing they are fake..how could they SEE the spirit in others,the love and joy of manifestation,since they didn't even resolve their OWN sense of SELF?..be careful that most realized being stop of their recognition that there is no self..but they NEVER realize that the other people,or the whole existence by the way..is voided ..so they try at their best to change others.and at their worst to blame others...be aware that the ESSENCE is ONE...and is your kripto spirit within...whom you blame?..your father..your mother..??..your neighbor ??..you REALLY think they are the cause of your suffering?...find your TRUE SELF,and KNOW you are the others,in a resonant factor...)

But IF YOU have it(that pure desire to know the truth)and want to escape the realm of suffering...and you DO NOT follow your pure desire..shit will happen,indeed...
Then the same powerful forces whom protected you all the way in your life,will turn against you...or you could stop looking for the truth,and forget about the whole stuff,and waste your present life in illusions...
BUT if you love your hidden suffering..that is ok...grasshoppers from heaven...and remember that you can't win in the battle with the universe itself..since the universe is you,and you'll create an internal battle within  yourself,between good and evil...same story you see in the movies,but your life is a movie,and you don't KNOW IT!!

In any case..the whole book is here  about Rose..kiss to David Gold

quote"
"She lived on the third floor of a boarding house, and her room was right across from the steps. When I got to the top of the stairs I heard strange noises coming from her apartment, so I put my ear to the door. I heard her voice, squeaky bed springs, and a deeper voice.

"I raised my fist to pound on the door, but then thought better of it. There was only one bathroom on the floor, so I decided to sit down on the stairs and wait ‘em out. They'd have to come out eventually and I'd see who the guy was.

"Sure enough, after an hour or so I heard the sound of heavy work boots. I stood up and the door opens. Out she walks with her lover. Except it wasn’t a man. Her lover was a thick-legged woman with short hair."

Rose seemed amused at the memory.

"So I stumbled back to my hotel room in shock--I had a cheap room over top of a Japanese restaurant. Next thing you know I’m propping myself up with my feet tucked under me in a yoga pose to meditate. But I’d barely got started when something happened.

"It began with a tremendous pain right in the top of my head. Now I've had pain before, but nothing like this. Tears were streaming down my face. I couldn't stand it. My head felt like it was going to explode, and I thought, 'Oh boy, three thousand miles from home and here I go.' I was convinced I was dying. Nobody could have that much pain and live. I remember thinking it must be a stroke, and I worried about how my people were going to get my body back home. They didn't have money to be shipping bodies across the country.

"Then, at the peak of the pain, I went out the window. I could see the Cascade mountains from my hotel room, and that's where I went--out the window and towards those snow-capped mountains. I was aware of seeing people on the street, except that I was above them. I passed over the people, and then over the mountains, and I watched this just like I was in an airplane. And I kept going out until I arrived at a 'place.' I don't say where. It wasn't the Cascades or anywhere else I knew. It wasn't on Earth because there was no sun, there was no sky. I simply arrived at a high place, and it was beautiful.

"I became aware at some point that I was in a causal realm--that I was the reason for its existence, that whatever I thought became a reality. In other words, I was causing things to happen, to be created, merely by desiring or thinking about them. The thought passed through me then that I was alone and that I wanted to see humanity--all of it. And so they appeared, all of humanity--everyone who had ever lived, everyone who ever would live--covering a huge mountain below me, crawling over each other like maggots, trying to get to the top. I was aware that they were engaged in a struggle that had an ultimate spiritual goal, but their immediate lives and pleasures were pathetic. I was still in some sort of astral form at this point--still maintaining an attachment to the body and to these people--and so I felt a tremendous amount of grief and sadness for their seemingly senseless struggle.

"I knew that if I desired I could pick out individuals, that I could see any man or woman who ever lived or ever would live. Because there was no such thing as time. These people were all living now--no matter what the earth time was for their lives--and all I had to do was pick them out, if I wished.

"So I thought to myself, if everyone is down there, then I must be there, too. And I looked down into the maggot pile, and there I was--Richard Rose. I could see myself struggling down there, the little man, happy in his illusion. I could see his whole life pattern.

"And then I thought, 'If that's Richard Rose down there, who's watching all this?' Suddenly I realized I was not just my individual self. I was the whole mass of humanity and the Observer watching it all--I was Everything. This propelled me into an indescribable experience of what I can only call ‘Everything-ness.’

Rose paused for a moment and looked around the table. When he resumed speaking his voice had a distant quality. "There’s just no words…no way I can talk about what that was… no way to begin to describe the…" his voice trailed off, "…the Totality."

The room stayed silent as Rose took a sip of tea. "Then, as I was experiencing this Everything-ness, this Totality, I got to wondering, 'If this is Everything, then what's Nothing?' Because even though I was in an Absolute dimension I still carried traces of my relative mind, which is always looking for dualities, for opposites.

"As soon as the thought of 'Nothing' occurred I started falling. I fell through an incredible void and blackness. And I thought, 'Oh boy, this is it. I'm gone forever.'

But I wasn't. At the end of Nothingness I was back on Earth, in my room in Seattle.

"And strangely enough, something was aware of the Nothingness as I fell, and of the Everything-ness as I took command of creation. That's why I say, in the final analysis, what you are is the Observer. That which you see is never you. That which sees, that's you.
"

This is AFTER his experience...(added by danny)
"What is it like to come back, Mister Rose?" he asked. "Is the world different, or do you leave the Experience behind?"
"The world is never the same again. For me now, it's like I'm an insane man watching all this. Of course that's a very liberating state to be in," he said with a grin. "An insane man is free to do all sorts of insane things."
The laughter provided a welcome break from the seriousness. The whole room seemed to loosen up, including Rose.
"It was pretty rough at first, though. The night I came back I couldn't stop weeping. I just wandered the streets crying uncontrollably, looking for a bridge high enough to jump off of. Seriously. I didn't want to live. I couldn't stand the thought of being back here in the nightmare. The only reason I didn't jump is the rivers are shallow out there and I was afraid I'd just get stuck in the mud.
"Then I passed a church and that gave me hope. I figured that priests spend their lives looking, maybe one of them has read something about what just happened to me. So I knocked on the door. This blob of a priest with an enormous gut answers and he looks at me like I'm some kind of worm. I knew he wasn't going to be any help, so I asked him, 'Are there any older priests around?' There I am, standing on the church steps with tears streaming down my cheeks and he doesn’t even invite me in. He just scowls at me and says, 'How long has it been since you've been to confession.'
"And I thought, 'Where's my gun?'" Rose continued talking through the laughter. "Really. I wanted to shoot the bastard. But the anger was good. It helped bring me out of it. It helped me stop weeping.
"Gradually, the worst of the trauma passed and I started drifting back into life again. But I still felt terribly out of place in a world that I knew without a shadow of a doubt was an illusion--having just visited the real place. For several weeks people were transparent to me. I mean literally transparent--I could see right through their bodies.
"So I figured I'd better head back home, because I still wasn't too stable. I had an old friend living in Alliance, Ohio, and he got me a job at the place he was working. That's when everything became beautiful to me. Hills were once more hills, valleys once more valleys. Children looked like baby dolls. The starkness of the Absolute I had visited now made life and motion appear as beauty to me. Those months following my Experience were the happiest of my life, except maybe for the years of peace and bliss I had in my twenties when I was living a very ascetic lifestyle.
"Every day I'd come back to my room after work and sit down in front of the typewriter. I'd given up on trying to talk about the Experience--you just can't describe an Absolute condition using relative terms--but I had hoped to write a book of poetry and at least try to capture the beauty of the illusion I'd been forced to come back to. Most of it I tore up as soon as I wrote it. But then one day something came over me and I was able to write about my Experience. That’s when I wrote ‘The Three Books of the Absolute.’
"It was like automatic writing," Rose continued. "The words just appeared on the page."
A hand was raised near the front of the room. "Do you think your years of asceticism brought about your Experience?"
"Not really. It was like a period of adolescence on the way to adulthood. Necessary, but not directly causal. However, I do think that all that experimentation, investigation, and especially conservation of my energy, was definitely part of the preparation for my Experience."
"What's the other part?"
"The main preparation for Enlightenment is trauma. But you don't need to engage in any special disciplines to induce it. Your life will give you plenty of trauma whether you're on a spiritual path or not. Indulge in it while you can. You'll have plenty of peace in the marble orchard--maybe." Rose laughed in a way that made me uneasy.
"What I mean is," he continued, "you have to go through these traumas in life--now, while you're on Earth--in order to improve your situation after death. Everyone may be immortal, but we don't all go to the same place when we die. Awareness may not terminate for anyone, but you can't expect to advance into a dimension that you haven't mentally vaccinated yourself to beforehand. If the average mind--with its convictions and limitations--landed in an Absolute dimension, it would think it was either in oblivion or hell."
"Will a person who’s been doing spiritual practices, like meditating regularly, get a foreshadowing of what you finally experienced?"
"No. This does not accrue gradually. It happens suddenly and is never anything like you might imagine beforehand. I always thought a spiritual experience would be sheer beauty. I had visions of reaching some beautiful fields of flowers or God knows what. And the fact that I found something so utterly devastating and contrary to my desires convinced me that the experience was genuine, and not the product of wishful thinking.
"It's the effort you put forth--the vector you create--that propels you into this, not an accumulation of knowledge. You're engaged in a relentless pursuit of Truth, yes, but even in the midst of it you suspect that you are incapable of perceiving the Truth. So you engage in the obsessive pursuit of a goal while simultaneously believing you will never be successful. You live this! A person on the spiritual path lives this every moment of every day of his life. You push and push and push without hope. And then, no words or logic can explain what finally happens. It's an explosion. Your being changes."
"But doesn't the wisdom you acquire on your search coalesce in Enlightenment?"
"No," Rose said flatly. "That is not the path. You can't acquire wisdom because you don't know what it is. The path is subtractive. You keep sorting through the garbage pile to see if something real lies underneath it. And after you get done subtracting everything, what's left is an Absolute condition. That's what's real, not the little bits and pieces you set aside because you thought they were true along the way. You don't know anything until you know Everything."
"Do you think other people have had the same type of experience you did?"
"Oh yes, I know that now. But after my Experience I felt completely isolated. It wasn't until years later that I found out about other spiritual incidents. I was in Steubenville, Ohio--we had a little group that met there--and after one of the meetings a woman handed me a copy of Richard Bucke's Cosmic Consciousness." When I read it I knew I wasn’t alone.
"But cosmic consciousness isn't the final experience," Rose continued. "The people in Bucke's book describe an experience where they understand the harmonious interworkings of everything in the universe. They see lights and experience bliss, and so on. This is wonderful. But experiencing the Absolute goes beyond all that. In the Absolute there is no bliss or sorrow."
Rose reached into his old black "satchel," as he called it, and rooted around for something. After a few moments he pulled out a copy The Albigen Papers.
"As I said, the closest I ever came to describing this was when I wrote ‘The Three Books of the Absolute. ‘ I’d tried several times before that to write about my Experience, but gave up. There was just no way to do it. Words and language exist in one dimension, so to speak, and the Experience in another--a dimension without words, a dimension that can’t even be imagined in dimensions where words exist. And so, there was just no way. But one day this poem, or whatever it is, just came to me, complete, all at once. I could hear it and feel it and all I did was get it down as fast as I could. Once I’d finished I never went back and changed anything. I just published it as it came to me. Anyway, it’s here in the back of this book. It’s rather long and I don’t want to put you through the whole thing, but I thought maybe I’d read the last few lines to you."
Rose patted his pockets and looked around the podium for his glasses. He found them in an inside coat pocket and put them on, then flipped through the book until he found the spot he was looking for. He stared at the words for several moments before speaking and by the time he began to read the room was impossibly silent.
"...And soon I see, looking ahead, that all my joys are not, that all my love is not, that all my being is not.
And I see that all Knowing is not. And the eminent I-ness melts into the embraces of oblivion.
It melts into the embraces of oblivion like a charmed lover, fighting the spell and languishing into it.
And now I breathe Space and walk in Emptiness. My soul freezes in the void and my thoughts melt into an indestructible blackness.
My consciousness struggles voiceless to articulate and it screams into the abysses of itself. Yet there is no echo.
All that remains is All.
My spark of life falls through the canyons of the universe, and my soul cannot weep for its loss....for lamentation and sorrow are things apart.
All that remains is All.
The universes pass like a fitful vision.
The darkness and the void are part of the Unknowing....
Nothing is everywhere....
Death shall exist forever....
All that remains is All."

To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;




In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.




Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;




There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.




The true and constant must respond to phenomena;




Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.




When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;




When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.




When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;




Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí are joined.




Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;




Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.




White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;




The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.




Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;




You wander so freely—who is able to know you?




Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;




Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.




It comes entirely from these twenty lines;




A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -

"The center of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in which one can learn to live eternally. Just outside of this Center is the rotating storm of one's own ego, competing with other egos in a furious high-velocity circular dance. As one leaves center, the roar of rotating wind deafens on more and more as one joins this dance. One's centered thinking-feeling-being, one's own Satoris, are in the center only, not outside. One's pushed-pulled driven states, one's anti-Satori modes of functioning, one's self-created hells, are outside the center. In the center of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life, rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us.

William J. Cozzolino talks about balance in life and death..


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain..inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!
* lovely dude I've found..but this William is good...he knows the truth,indeed...
some links about him,so you might grab his wisdom brain muscles using the famous numb-nuts kripto lock..(with both hands)
Since following the breath is such a big discovery for the whole humanity...
Anyway.. here is Bill Cozzolino ..click on the links..
and hey....why not have his pic also...

I'll quote now his impressive http://www.skyhero.com/transition.htm 
Now...he is quite good in explaining...I must admit...worthy of investigating ..35 years it took him to write down his book...too bad he is dead now...hope he used his transition guidance good for himself...nothing like a good balance,using your breath as aim,especially if you're dead,and you can't breath at all......whom needs teachers,since you are the ONE,indeed?..why bother with teachers since you are in the Balance?..

Just watch your sniffing large nose nostrils(pig style are the best...lots of breathing there..the more air,the better self realization..) ,and become a superhuman...a giant in spirituality..the ever-loved one,so full of bliss and wisdom every time...a victor over life and death...laughing at suffering indeed..immortal to the bones ...Halleluyah!.. Praise the Lord!  ..the secret must be the overgrown nostrils of watching the breath,and you can be the Buddha itself,says Billy the Mighty God Father Corleone(sorry..is Cozzolino...my mistake)

Nobody needs anything,no religions,no teachers,no gurus,no Budhas,no realized beings,nothing..
All they need is watch their breath says this numbnuts....while he sucked his wisdom from some chinese woman guru he's had..he's had the audacity to proclaim that the breath is all you need...to watch it.
This is his contribution to the spirituality realm,to watch your breath...and become a Buddha.
Since he knew the truth better...I'll spare him from my sarcastic remarks,but I pity him..for he'd learned nothing.

Watch your breath,eghhh...no gurus needed,eghhh?....final wisdom is to watch the one beyond the breath,eghh?

No teacher,no nothing needed,eghh?..then why you sucker needed your chinese woman teacher to guide you?..asked the mahayogi?

..Because as I was watching my breath..I knew all I had to do is nothing......then she came to me,eating some chinese noodles..and even if she was a woman,I called her a Master...,and I got naked and bowed down to her toes,and even so all you need to do is to watch your breath!!!...

Said the fruitcake Cozzolino..no need for teachers,gurus or advanced beings,he explained me before planting one more juicy kiss on his chinese Mistress 10 fingers toes he calls ,,Master,,..then she spanked him good,for he didn't follow his breath the right way...one finger at the time.
May I have another spank,he cried out to his Mistress,which he calls ,Master,??
Eat my noodle !!!...said the Mistress.

Kisses to him,in whatever plane he is now,anyway..)...

Life after death?
What really happens when we 'die?'
Death is a clinical process, a process that can be observed and documented. Many have made the 'journey' and returned to tell about it. Others, such as the Shaman, have made it a practice of taking the journey intentionally. We have a wealth of opinion about what happens to us when we make this journey as well as a wealth of information that has been gathered from those who have actually been there and back.
Death is not an end, but simply a transition from one reality to another.
Student: What happens to us when we die?
Master: When you die?
Student: When our physical life ends?
Master: What happens to you depends on you. What you call death is not an ending, but a beginning. It is a birth, and you must decide now if it is to be a birth of experience or a birth of awareness.
Even though death is a daily occurrence, we often hold physical death in a special place. It should not be so. The death of the physical body involves the SAME PROCESS AS BIRTH. It contains the confusion, the tunnel, the light, and the same restructuring of our paradigm. We experienced this process, this 'death,' when we entered the physical world. The only difference is, at the time of physical death the body ceases to function, and the physical view screen (the physical brain) on which reality has been presented begins to fade. This is a process that almost everyone will experience, but it is not a new experience.
The mind contains built-in programming that results in a step-by-step process from the physical movie of reality to the transpersonal realm at the time of physical death. It is through this process that we are presented with awareness of our natural, holographic awareness or 'higher self.' It process happens to all who experience a physical death, but the paradigm of each individual presents the process in an experience that is consistent with their expectations. Remember that during this 'movie of physical reality' we have developed expectations concerning what will happen when we make this transition. Our mind is energy, and even though the physical brain is dying, the mind is still active. It is still filtering and shaping information, and presenting it to our awareness in a manner that meets our expectations. We call this process "transition."
We may experience glimpses of transition throughout our lives but, because we lack Knowledge of the process, we never realize what has happened. Glimpses of transition occur during situations when the mind is deprived of sensory information from our physical reality, or our physical reality is in jeopardy, such as in life threatening situations. At these times, the mind is stimulated into running the physical death program and we may get a glimpse of transition in its beginning stages. This is when we may see our life 'flash before our eyes' when involved in a traumatic accident. We are actually seeing holographically when this happens, and holographically is how our mind "sees" without the limitations of the physical senses.
In order for us to remain in Balance during transition, we must gain Balance in our movie of consensus reality, be aware of the process of transition and prepare ourselves for it. If we do not take these steps, our mind simply presents us with an experience that meets our predetermined expectations of what we believe will happen.
The process of transition at the time of physical death is an archetypal process -- a process that follows the same pattern wherever it occurs, just as is the process of birth. This is why the process is the same throughout the world, and even though reports of the experience differ, there are commonalties in the experience that cannot be denied. These commonalties are, however, interpreted differently by the mind of the individual experiencing it.
Remember that the mind is not in the brain, but in the energy of the whole being. The mind retains all the patterns, programs, and tendencies that we develop during our movie of consensus reality, our 'physical' life. The mind remains, even during transition, the home of our paradigm. During transition, our mind still provides us an interpretation of what we are experiencing according to its paradigm. Even though we are experiencing the world of holographic awareness in which we naturally function during transition, our mind filters and refines the experience and presents an illusion that meets our expectations.
The illusion of the movie of consensus reality is a clinical process, and transition at the time of physical death is a part of it. Physical death is simply stepping from one stage to another, one dream to another, one reality to another -- and nothing more. Physical birth is such a transition, and so physical birth contains the same archetypal process, the same interacting patterns of awareness, as does physical death.
Although transition is one complete process, it is easier to understand if it is presented as individual experiences. Again, there are reports of physical death from NDE's around the world, and as always, the interpretation of the process is reported through the paradigm of the person experiencing it. What we are concerned with is the archetype itself – the common aspects of transition that arise regardless of the reporting individual.
The first archetypal experience in transition is the tunnel. The tunnel is the reflection of the birth canal. As with birth, it may be preceded by a period of disorientation and confusion. It is sometimes experienced as a dark hallway, a deep valley between two high cliffs, or even a dark field with misty edges; the descriptions vary with the paradigm of the individual reporting it. Some individuals experience an open field, a pleasant lake, a bridge, or a misty environment with a light in the background. Again, the presentation of experience is the result of our paradigm so, throughout the world, there are reports of many different experiences of the process.
Most reporters tell of being aware of a distant light beyond the tunnel and a noise of some kind. The noise is often a buzzing sound, or the sound of rustling wind. What is taking place in transition is the process by which the view screen on the physical brain is replaced by the view screen of our energy mind in the energy of our being. This can be compared to transition at the time of birth when our senses are flooded with the awareness of our new reality.
The next experience that is encountered in transition is the approaching of the Light of Mind or the Higher Self. This arises as the experience of the tunnel fades into the background. As mentioned, the Light first appears far in the distance. As the individual travels through the tunnel, they feel drawn to this Light. Most who have experienced it report that there are no words to describe the Light. It is said to be brighter than any earthly light, yet will not harm the eyes of those that look directly into it. Individuals report that as they are drawn to the Light, they experience total Love and acceptance.
Most say they felt the Light was familiar, as if they were in some way a part of it. This Light often appears to those who have led a "good" life as well as those who have not. It may appear to those who have held a belief in a god, as well as to many that have not. Once again, all experience is a projection of the mind. The process is ARCHETYPAL, it is a commonality, but within the process, many experiences are available. Individual experiences within the process are a product of our mind in response to our paradigm, just as is the case in consensus reality.
The Light often appears as a figure. The personage is always a product of the observer's belief and reality structure - it meets the observes expectations. A Christian will usually see Christ or an angel. A Buddhist will likely see a Buddha, or one of the saints. A generic believer may see an angel, and some are just aware of the Light. Here is evidence that the mind is already beginning to fill in our view screen with information that fits our expectations. There is something out there, limited, and with meaning. The fact that the Light appears differently to different observers means only that the illusion of separation, limitation, and meaning is beginning again.
The presence of the Light is the arising of Mind or our Higher Self. This is our natural state as energy, spirit beings. If we realize what is happening and are prepared for it, we are able to recognize this Light as our very self and gain the Knowledge that it is from within. With Balance, we are able to identify the activity of our mind attempting to present this Light through our paradigm. With Balance, we are able to gently return this presentation to its source and merge with the light. 
Without Balance, the light remains out there, limited, and meaningful through our paradigm. It even appears to be seen through our rapidly diminishing physical senses. Our paradigm tells us it is separate form us and the process of transition continues to meet our expectations.
With the end of the tunnel and in the presence of the Light, comes the next archetypal step in the process of transition - judgment. Again, our awareness at this point is a result of the presentation of our natural awareness, our Higher Self, while our mind still interprets the experience according to its paradigm.
One commonality is evident - all judgment is self-judgment. Almost without exception, the report is the light did not judge us - we judged ourselves! How can this be so? Our mind contains our EGO programming. The programs of limiting thought that are our paradigm immediately interpret the presentation of the Light as it arises. We are not able to consider our paradigm. It was created in response to sensory information from consensus reality, and that reality is no longer available to us. There is no time. It no longer exists. At this point in transition, our awareness has expanded to include our Higher Self. The only Balance we now have is that which we have practiced in our previous reality. Our mind and our Higher Self-merge, and again, holographically. Our awareness is now a result of the holographic merging of the paradigm of our mind with the unlimited potential of our Higher Self.
In Balance, we are able to fully realize the unconditional Love and total forgiveness. In Balance, we are able to recognize the presentation of judgment as an interpretation of our mind, gently return it to its source, and merge with our Higher Self.
Without Balance, we experience the judgment of Ego and the Light remains separated from us.
This is why the Master stated, quite simply: What happens to you will depend on you. What you call death is not an ending but a beginning. It is a birth, and you must decide now if it is to be a birth of experience or a birth of awareness.
She is not saying that this birth, either way, is good or bad. She is saying that when we focus our attention on experience while here in this movie of reality, we develop patterns that remain with us when we leave, and we therefore choose another movie, another experience. And when we focus our attention on Balance while here, still able to enjoy the movie of reality, we choose a camera with a wider lens -- one that allows awareness. She is saying that it is a choice we make while we are here in the movie of consensus reality.
The activity of the paradigm in presenting our experience in transition is evident in the fact that each individual will report an experience consistent with what he or she believes in or has learned to expect.
Without Balance, our next movie experience meets our expectations. The "heavens" are limited only by the attention of those who enter, but the heavens are another place of experience. In the heavens, just as here, experience is available and is presented according to our expectations. We must take this information seriously if we are to understand transition. Every heaven supporting every belief system in consensus reality is available to us.
The tunnel and the Light may be accompanied by the presence of departed loved ones. Here, again, the response of our mind to the arising of the Higher Self is following the same patterns it has in our movie of consensus reality. The vibrations of our attention are responded to, and common beliefs in realities draw entities together. Another illusion that supports our expectations is presented by our mind. The loved ones may very well reside in a "place" in which we share a common belief in, and we may have longed to be with them. Again, what we expect and believe in is exactly what happens!
The tunnel and the Light, and the potential for judgment, are the first experiences of transition. Remember, again, that the mind is not in the brain, it is the energy that we are, and it is still active and running programs. When the tunnel and the Light appear, they appear out there, limited, and with meaning. What is happening is the presence of natural spirit state arising on view screen of our new awareness. We are witnessing our very nature, our primordial self. We are experiencing, for a brief instant that can seem to take an eternity, The Light of Mind. It is us. But, without Balance, this holographic awareness is filtered and shaped by our still active paradigm to fit our expectations. Without Balance, our paradigm is still predominant. Without Balance, the illusion remains in the separation, limitation, and meaning given by our mind.
If our belief system contains a strong paradigm of an external creator, it will not allow us to gain the awareness that this Knowledge is arising within us; it appears external and contains meaning. There is a god archetype, and an archetype is, by its nature, unlimited. The presentation of any archetype naturally assumes the form that we hold in the paradigm of our mind. If we believe in a god of judgment and wrath, that program appears in our mind and becomes our experience. If we believe in a god of Love and forgiveness, we experience the same. Both experiences have been reported, as well as almost everything in-between. It may seem redundant, but our experience arises to meet our expectations.
These experiences are usually filled with emotion beyond description. The love we experience here in the movie of reality is nothing compared to the love that presents itself in our god. The fear that we experience in the movie is nothing compared to the fear we experience as our mind presents its concept of a god of wrath.
It is at this point that those experiencing transition ask to return or are 'sent back.’ Very few that go beyond this point will return to tell about it.
The observer usually interprets the last experience in transition in complete agreement with his or her beliefs. If they return, they will tell of the 'heaven' or the 'hell' that they believed in. It is only through intentionally making the journey with an open mind and a desire to learn that we discover what happens next.
The next step in transition is the fullness of the Light of Mind, The Higher Self or The One within, whatever name you prefer. We prefer to use 'The One.' Up till this point we have been experiencing holographic awareness related to our experience, filtered and refined by our still active mind, and not the full awareness of The One. Because our paradigm is still with us, we may still feel a sense of separation, almost like an observer. When full awareness of The One arises, it may appear as a vast emptiness, but we are aware that the emptiness is full of potential. In the quantum energy state of The One, there is only potential. Remember that we are experiencing holographically now, and our mind is still active. We still hold the memory and the paradigm of our last movie -- and still have a sense of self.
It is at this point that our Ego may surface again - with judgment. Confronting the sense of our personal "I" is the last step in transition. Our Ego may lead us to believe that we will have to give up our "identity" in order to merge with The One. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our identity is of The One. It is the final sense of separation that we are confronting. The sense of separation is the last stronghold for the Ego and the paradigm. The One is not a place of separation in any form.
In The One, total intimate awareness of each and every entity is available to us at all times. The Ego program presented by our mind may try to hold on to our separation, telling us that we will lose our sense of self. The mind knows that our consciousness will gradually become aware of every thought of every entity that is, as well as all potential floating in the vast reaches of The One. We are confronted with the awareness that each and every entity that is will become totally and intimately aware of us. Our Ego may tell us they will know everything about us. We must not be deceived, they already do! And we, in Mind, already know them. But that awareness has been sequestered behind our paradigm. We are just now becoming aware of it.
Awareness of the transpersonal realm is not something new to us. It is where we came from, and we hold in our Higher Self awareness the intrinsic knowledge and ability to move about freely in it.
In order to go any further, the idea that we are not worthy or are unprepared must be set aside. We were, shall we say, born ready.
This is the process of transition in its simplest form. There are many variations of the process, and many different experiences can arise during it. The steps usually happen in the order given even if they are not recalled, but there are exceptions in the reports given. We all have different paradigms.

Meditation
The ‘secret’ revealed
Student: How should I meditate?
Master: Meditate on the center.
Student: But should’t I practice a certain kind of meditation?
Master: Meditation is the focus of attention, nothing more. Meditate in your center, and allow your Balance to be.
Student: Should I choose something that reminds me of The One?
Master: Is your body pleasing to you?
Student: No, not really. I mean it is, but not for meditation.
Master: Your body is a reflection of your mind, and is of The One. It will do you no good to focus your attention on something outside yourself unless you are pleased with yourself. Meditate with your body. Begin with your breath, and become aware the Balance within yourself.
We have learned that the mind runs programs in response to our attention. When our attention is focused on our movie of consensus reality, these programs filter and refine the energy of our holographic world and project it onto our view screen of awareness. What we experience when this happens is the result of our paradigm, the matrix of limiting thought that follows us from reality to reality. This is true of any movie of reality, be it the movie of consensus reality or a movie in a personal dream. We know that where our attention is, so is our movie.
We remain in Balance when we maintain awareness of the nature of our movie of reality even while we experience it. The ability to focus our attention is the single most important element in our development. This is true here in our movie of reality as well as in awareness of The One.
It’s our ability to focus our attention that resulted in our paradigm and its presentation of Maya. It is our ability to focus our attention on the source of our reality that allows us to remain in Balance. And it is the ability to focus our attention that leads to freedom from the movie we call reality.
Let’s look at the process again. The mind runs programs in response to sensory information and holographic awareness. This presentation of our reality takes place when our physical senses receive information from our movie of reality. The mind knows what program it will run well in advance of the time our movie of reality requires it, but it presents the program to our conscious view screen as if it is happening that instant. Integration is a constant practice of remaining aware of this process in our mind while we participate in the movie of reality. Integration leads to Balance, and freedom from the programs of our paradigm.
All experience is a product of our mind, and all experience is dreamlike in nature. We have learned to believe that our mind’s participation in reality is awareness. But what we have come to call awareness, the awareness we use in our experience in consensus reality, is really the activity of our mind solving the problems of our perceived reality. Our awareness of our holographic self is filtered through our paradigm and presented as a comparison or evaluation of ourselves with others and our place in this movie. It is through this process that we believe our awareness originates, but the process itself virtually eliminates the awareness of our nature as holographically connected beings. The resulting presentation, the presentation we think of as awareness, is not awareness at all. Severely filtered to give the illusion of separation from the whole, what we think is awareness is actually the activity of our mind and its paradigm.
And we have been taught to give our attention to this activity. We have learned to accept this limited presentation and are rewarded for giving our attention to it. When we are able to focus our attention on this activity we gain a "place" in our reality and arrive at what we believe is a self-identity.
Attention to this paradigm activity, this problem solving activity, is the foundation on which our social structure is based and is the driving force for our education system. In our social and technological paradigm, cultures that have not developed attention to this process are viewed as backward. Yet, these cultures often display abilities that cannot be defined within our paradigm. We know of cultures that never invented the wheel or telescope, yet have mapped the solar system in a detail that we are just now able to verify. Isolated, seemingly backward tribes of people have been found that have accurate descriptions of the stars beyond our solar system. Other cultures remained isolated in one place on the earth, yet possessed information and detailed drawings of all the peoples of the earth. Our scientists ponder these conundrums, searching for an explanation that fits within their paradigm. But they have never looked within; they have never looked to the process by which our mind constructs reality.
Being consumed every waking moment of our day by the problem solving activity of our mind is not awareness at all. Each and every thought we experience has its origin in Mind -- in the pure holographic potential of The One. There is no other source of thought. Each and every thought arises in Mind without separation, limitation, or meaning, and in full Balance between the potential for experience and holographic awareness of The One. Our natural identity is not separate from the whole. This holographic awareness is available just behind the activity of the paradigm, behind the thought activity we have learned to believe is self-awareness.
The activity of the mind responds to attention. When your attention is placed on a question, the mind must run the programs in its paradigm that result in an experience. When you become aware of the process, you can actually feel this activity happening. I am going to ask you a series of questions. After reading each question, close your eyes for just a moment and ponder the question. Try to feel the mental activity taking place as you do so.
What is two times two?
Okay, your mind ran a program and it appeared to provide the answer. It took only an instant for your mind to reach into its memory and extract it. You may not have noticed the problem solving activity of your mind.
Now, when did you first learn the answer was four?
Notice how your mind took a little longer and perhaps even pulled your awareness back to your school days. You may not recall the exact instant, but your problem solving mind automatically ran a program resulting in the awareness that you did, at some time in this lifetime, memorize the fact that two times two equals four. You went within. Most likely, you did not come up with a complete answer, but the answer you got somehow satisfied you. You just know that information is lost in the past, in your mind, at least. And you have the feeling that your mind is attempting to solve the problem, to come up with when you first learned that two plus two equals four.
Where did you learn it?
Again, when you are sensitive to the process, you can actually feel what you believe is your mind attempting to solve the problem. This is where you were taught to focus your attention in problem solving activity. You were reconstructing your childhood days, recalling the schools you went to, or perhaps you saw that terrible times table you spent hours focused on. And again, you did not come up with a specific answer. You were satisfied with an answer that fits your paradigm of recall. And you know, in our social paradigm, total recall is an exception. Still, you have the feeling that your mind is actively attempting to solve the problem, to answer the question. You have the feeling you are thinking about it, pondering it, or attempting to recall the answer.
But the mental activity you experience when your mind is facing this problem is not a recall activity. Your mind knows full well the exact time and place you first learned that two times two equals four, as well as who was there and what the whether was like when the event happened. The entire scene is recorded in exact detail, detail that goes beyond what you were consciously aware of when the event took place. The answer to every question you could ask is available to your mind. The information is there; the mind and Mind are one.
The problem your mind must solve is determining whether this information fits into your expected view of reality through the paradigm you have created. That’s the only problem it ever has to solve and it must continue as long as your attention is focused on it. It is the filtering and refining process of your mind responding to your attention that you just felt, and your paradigm leads you to believe that this activity is awareness. You have learned to accept its limited presentation as all that is available to your conscious view screen. It is all that is available through your paradigm, but it is only a small fraction of what is available to your awareness.
When you responded to the first question, the answer came quickly. But it only came quickly because it fit within your paradigm. When you pondered over the next questions, the answers came slowly and only in part, and the activity you felt continued as long as your attention was focused on the question. Even if you consider those questions again, you experience the same activity. The fact is, you experience this activity as long as you are focused on the question, or until you gain awareness. But right now, the focus of your attention may be on the fact that you consciously felt your paradigm for the first time in your life. This may be the first time you have openly admitted that the information you requested is still there, held beyond your conscious view screen by your paradigm. This may be the first time you have come to the realization that as long as the focus of your attention is on the question, the activity you feel is the process of your mind struggling with your attention, filtering and refining your awareness. And you have learned to believe and accept the fact that all that activity, that filtering and refining process in your mind, is awareness.
Now, let's consider the implications of this discovery. How much of what we have "accomplished" as humanity has really been an accomplishment? We, as holographically connected spirit beings have "invented" devices such as telephones, radios, computers, and television, as means of communication. We "advanced" from total awareness to walking around, being transported from place to place by animal drawn carts, to automobiles, and to airplanes. We "evolved" from beings able to live in harmony with the earth into societies that build great cities and lay waste to its landscape. When we discover a people who are able to live in harmony with the earth, who can travel the earth and visit the stars in their awareness, we educate them. We teach them to focus their attention on the illusion. What would cause a holographic being to require these "advancements?" The only possible explanation is a loss of awareness. We have simply forgotten who and what we are.
We created a system of education that prohibits teaching children how to access awareness and we encourage them, actually, we require them to focus their full attention on the illusion. Teaching meditation in school is, for the most part, forbidden. It is thought to be "spiritual," "metaphysical," or "religious."
How much of what you have accomplished as an individual has really been an accomplishment?
The answer to both questions is the same. None of this is necessary. It is possible to become fully involved in any experience we desire while remaining in Balance. But we are so far away from realization of the Balance that is, we don't even know it exists.
What a wonderful deception, but then, we could not have this very limited experience without it. Just as in the cinema, we forget the projector, the people around us, even the cinema itself, as we become involved in our movie.
And we must view this in the light of Balance. Nothing is wrong here, no one has made a mistake, and nothing needs to be changed. Every entity participating in consensus reality is here by choice, and that choice is made, by each of us, with a full awareness of the nature of this reality.
We can only ask ourselves if this is really where we want to focus our attention. We cannot ask that question for anyone else, nor can we force awareness upon them. We have created a reality in which we appear separated from the whole and thereby separated from each other. The function of our paradigm is the creator of this illusion, but the illusion is necessary for us to have this experience. Still, Balance is, and all that is, is of The One.
The mind is very powerful, as we have demonstrated in our hypnosis experiments, in its ability to filter and refine the holographic potential of The One and present our reality to us. But our mind has a quality that is in our favor. It must run programs in response to attention.
When you place your attention on a question, any question, your mind runs the programs that determine how awareness fits your paradigm. Remember, Balance is. You cannot hold a question without holding the answer. It exists in the holographic energy of The One along with the question. If that awareness does not fit your paradigm, your mind filters and refines it so it does. Your mind then presents this filtered and refined awareness onto your conscious view screen. And it presents it with the illusion that somehow the activity involved in filtering and refining that awareness was required in order for you to answer the question, have the experience, and gain just a little awareness.
You know now that the problem your mind is faced with is deciding how your awareness fits your paradigm; you know that this is the only problem your mind ever has to solve. It is time to go to the Question.
Where do thoughts originate? They originate in Mind, in the holographic potential of The One, in you. There is no other source of thought. The Question asks this question: Where did the thought originate; where did it come from?
The Question is not a mental question, and it is not a thought; it is an awareness. It starts as a question so your mind can identify it -- and filter and refine it. But now you have actually experienced this filtering and refining activity. And when you did, you became aware of the awareness beyond it. For a brief instant you became aware of your awareness beyond thought. This awareness beyond thought is the Question.
The Question is a challenge to your mind to acknowledge the origin of all thought. And even though it continues to filter and refine it, it must acknowledge it. From a mental standpoint, you are able to understand how the paradigm works and even become aware of its activity. You must go beyond this mental activity in order to access awareness, therefore, you must hold the Question as an awareness beyond thought. Remember, your mind must respond to your attention. You will, therefore, eventually go beyond the process of the paradigm and gain access to expanded awareness.
We have been practicing this discipline during Integration. But active participation in a discipline designed to strengthen our ability to focus our attention gives us greater access to our intrinsic awareness. The practice of meditation strengthens our ability to choose where we will place our attention.
Attention is like a muscle of the body. When you use the muscles of your body, they become stronger. When you do 15 pushups every morning, your arms become stronger. When you practice 15 minutes of meditation every morning, your attention becomes stronger. But if your pushups are done improperly, the outcome is less than desired or even counterproductive. The same is true of meditation.
It is the focus of attention that has allowed you to develop your role in this movie of reality. Every skill you have "developed" in the movie has been the result of your attention. In doing so, you practiced a discipline of attention that eliminates awareness. And this is okay, as long as you practice a discipline of attention that Balances it.
It is the ability to focus your attention that allows you to remain in Balance. When your attention wavers, so does your Balance. And, it your ability to focus your attention on Balance that causes your Path to rise before you. Again, the ability to focus attention is the most powerful ability of the human spirit.
Attention is the key. When you focus your attention on the movie in the cinema, your paradigm shapes your awareness, and the presentation on the screen becomes your reality for a time. When you focus your attention on the movie of life, your paradigm shapes your awareness and it becomes your reality for a time. When you focus your attention on Balance, neither the presentations of your mind nor the source of them is overwhelming. You are in Balance -- in the center. The width of your awareness is directly proportional to your focus of attention. Light, fluid attention in motion broadens the scope of awareness.
Meditation is not a mystical method of gaining access to another dimension. It is an exercise, a discipline. It is the practice of choosing where the attention is focused and maintaining the chosen focus. This is accomplished in motion while maintaining Balance.
There is no such thing as a bad pushup, unless you don't do it or do it improperly. Likewise, there is no such thing as bad meditation, unless you don't do it or do it improperly. We often hear people who meditate say: I had a good meditation and this or that happened. Or, I had a bad meditation. I just couldn't get into it. When we hear this, we are listening to people who focus their attention to get an experience. You should know that there is no experience to be desired in meditation. You know that all experience is a projection of your mind, and that it must contain the illusion of Maya in order to remain an experience.
You do not need a spiritual teacher to instruct you in the proper method of meditation. The meditative state is intrinsic to your nature. Balance is your natural state. Immersion in illusion is not Balance. Immersion in illusion is an energy consuming process. You burn as much energy when involved in the problem solving paradigm activity of your mind, the activity you believed was deep thought, as when you are walking briskly. The blood flow to your brain, the view screen of your reality, is nearly twice what it is to the rest of your body, yet you use less than ten percent of your mental capacity. Your mind’s response to prolonged exposure to paradigm activity is sleep, and you have learned to take breaks in order to enjoy "mindless" activities that give you pleasure and refresh your energy. Your mind would love to find the place of Balance that is intrinsic in its nature, but it must run programs in response to your attention. All that is necessary for you to find Balance -- and awareness -- is to give your mind the opportunity to do so. All that is necessary is for you to choose to do so, and to focus your attention on it.
There are many techniques for meditation, many different ways and methods of practicing it. But the following simple, basic technique is the foundation of all meditation. Focus your attention on your breath, and follow your breath inward.
Choosing to focus our attention on our breath rather than a word or an icon has a significance. My Master, in her wisdom, has revealed that words and icons hold self-given meaning in the Western mind. Eastern students were raised in a paradigm where all is energy and everywhere is the center. Masters in the East did give their students words and icons for meditation but, as soon as the student displayed any attachment to them, they were changed. Can one word be more powerful in the energy of the hologram than another; can one icon be more significant than another? The answer is yes, but only to mind of the individual. Balance is.
In choosing the breath as the focus of attention in meditation, the student eventually realizes that he or she is one with the energy of The One, that he or she is the very center.
There is no paradigm problem for the mind to solve when your attention of focused on your breath. The mind may attempt to present thoughts in a problematic way, and these thoughts may include the fact that you are focusing your attention on your breath, but breathing is an automatic process that requires no conscious thought. You are simply placing your attention on this automatic, internal process.
Proper meditation follows the same principles that we have been discussing all along. In our practice of Integration in consensus reality, when an experience is presented with separation, limitation, or meaning, we recognize it for what it is and return to Balance. So, in our practice of mediation, when a thought arises with separation, limitation, or meaning, we apply the same method. We acknowledge the thought for what it is. It is a projection of the mind. Then, we gently return it to its source and merge with it, and return our attention to our breath. As we do this, we recognize that place beyond thought where awareness originates, we give attention to the Question. This is not holding a thought; it is recognizing the place beyond thought by briefly giving attention to the Question and continuing the motion back to Balance. Do not hold the Question or it becomes involved in the process. Do not say to yourself: Where did that thought come from? Simply recognize the Question, lightly brush your thoughts over it, and return your attention to your breath. And remember: Where your attention is, your reality is.
The ability to focus attention is the most powerful ability of the human spirit.
It is not necessary to experience anything. The fact that you have chosen to move your attention from the process of the paradigm, lightly brush your thoughts over the Question, and return your attention to your breath is all that is necessary.
The technique is simple, requires no special training, and can be adapted to meet your physical requirements. Secure a quiet place with comfortable surroundings. You will eventually be able to remain in Balance in a burning building, but it is best not to start there. If there are other individuals around, have them agree to allow you time without interruption. If you are alone, disconnect the phone. Sit in a comfortable position, feet uncrossed and hands in your lap. Do not lie down. If you lie down, your mind interprets this as a prelude to sleep. You are not going to sleep. Keep your back straight and roll your head until you find a comfortable position. You may close your eyes. When you have accomplished this, take a deep breath, exhale slowly and begin breathing normally.
Remain alert, and begin to give your attention to each breath. Do not attempt to control your breathing. Just become aware of it, and place your attention on it. It is not necessary to practice any particular method of breathing but, if you have a favorite, use it. Just do what comes naturally to you. Breathing from the chest, however, indicates stress. You will know you are breathing naturally when your stomach expands and contracts with each breath. This is natural breathing.
As you focus your attention on your breath, begin to become fully aware of each breath. Begin to involve all the senses you use in consensus reality in your focus of attention. Using your senses, feel the breath enter your nostrils and go down your throat. Feel your body move in harmony with your breathing. Hear your breath as it enters and leaves. Do not force yourself to become aware in this manner, rather, allow your awareness to expand and include all your senses.
If you can, picture your breath filling your lungs. Smell your breath. You may not have been aware of it, but you can actually taste your breath. Expand your awareness and use as many of your senses as you can to focus your attention on your breath.
You are now practicing the discipline of attention, choosing to focus your attention on your breath. You are involving the physical senses that your mind normally uses in presenting you with your movie of reality. This focus soon becomes a single, effortless attentiveness.
Your mind, for a time, will cooperate with this new program, even though it does not fit into your current paradigm. At first, you will find it very easy to give your full attention to your breath. But then, your mind will present you with another thought such as: Am I really comfortable, should I be sitting straighter? Or: Did I disconnect the phone?
It is natural for your mind to attempt to interpret meditation as an experience. It thinks of meditation as an experience and continues to operate within its paradigm. Meditation is not an experience, yet it is. Remember, meditation is the place of Balance between limited experience and full awareness, and Balance includes motion. Therefore, there will always be motion; you will always be inclined toward experience or awareness. And you are not giving attention to sensory information normally available in consensus reality. Your mind will try to compensate for this by providing you with experience that contains sensory information from your memory.
Do not be discouraged, it is only the motion you are experiencing. Do not take the thought into your attention. Recognize that thought for what it is. It is a projection of your mind on your conscious view screen. It’s your problem solving paradigm attempting to keep awareness behind experience. Remember, your paradigm is determining how much of this awareness fits into your everyday experience. It is attempting to supply you with a ‘normal’ experience, one of immersion in experience. Acknowledge the thought by gently brushing your attention over it, then gently return it to its source and merge with it. Do not cast it away or tell yourself that the thought was an interruption of your meditation. The thought was a part of your meditation, and it caused motion. It came from your mind. It is your creation. Do not separate yourself from it. You know that all experience is a projection of your mind, but you also know that all that is, is of The One. You know that for experience to be, the illusion of separation must remain. Do not force it away. Just return it gently to its source and merge with it.
As you return your attention to your breath, allow your attention to brush gently over the Question; become aware of the place in Mind where all thought originates. Do not ask the Question in your mind or voice the Question in your thoughts. Gently and easily brush your attention over the awareness beyond thought that is Question and return your attention once again to your breath. Performing this is like a mental glance. As you did not grasp for the thought of the presentation of your mind by giving your attention to it, do not grasp for the thought of the Question. This is a gentle, easy, almost effortless task that, although it has been presented in a series of steps, becomes one easy movement of attention, a motion of attention, a Balance. It results in a brief awareness of the place beyond the activity of your paradigm where full awareness lies. But you do not want to grasp awareness, that would not be putting your foot down. Return to the center, to your chosen focus of attention.
In time, your thoughts will automatically follow your attention. This is the movement of attention in Balance you are seeking. Remember, Balance is not a static state, but a state of subtle movement between experience and awareness.
Your mind will continue to interpret your meditation as an experience. It may say: Aw nuts, I'm sorry I did that.
Acknowledge that thought by gently brushing your attention over it, and gently return it to its source, to your mind. Allow the Question to pass through your attention and gently return your attention to your breath.
Your mind may say: Did someone just drive up? (separation.)
Acknowledge the thought, gently return it to its source and merge with it. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
Your mind may say: How long has it been? (limitation.)
Acknowledge the thought and gently return it to its source. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
Still attempting to interpret meditation as an experience, your mind might say: It would probably be easier if we focused on something more interesting than breathing like, I know, The One. (meaning.)
Acknowledge the thought, gently return it to its source, and merge with it. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
Thoughts will continue to rise from your mind as your motion of attention flows. Acknowledge each thought, and gently return it to its source. Each time you merge with a thought, continue the motion from the experience of the thought, through awareness of the Question, and back again to your chosen focus of attention. Meditation has a rhythm like walking or doing pushups. Meditation is not a static, thoughtless state. Meditation is motion in Balance.
Even in the very early stages of this practice you become aware of the vast ocean of awareness just behind the activity of your mind. You become aware of Mind. Most individuals become aware of it just by performing the question and answer routine you did earlier. There may be a tendency to immerse in this awareness, to flow into it and go with it. Do not do it. Immersion in awareness is a state of imbalance just as immersion in experience is a state of imbalance. Return each time to the center, to your chosen focus of attention. You have chosen to focus your attention on your breathing. Your continual affirmation of this choice -- by acknowledging each rising thought, gently returning it to its source, and merging with it -- is like taking a step. Continuing the motion of your attention confirms your freedom of choice and strengthens your ability to focus your attention. By lightly brushing your attention over the Question as you make the transition, you are moving from experience, through awareness, and back again to your breath. This discipline results in Balance in motion. The purpose of meditation is not immersion in awareness or immersion in experience. The purpose of meditation is Balance.
Continue the practice while your mind continues to run programs and present them to you. It is natural for your mind to do this. Do not try to still your mind. It is the continual flow of attention that is the discipline of meditation. It is your moment of attention to the Question as continue your motion that brings Balance. This is very important. If you cast a thought aside, feel badly about it, or criticize yourself for it, you have created separation. Each rising thought is a part of your meditation; they are not interruptions of your meditation. The same is true of your experience of awareness. Whenever your attention drifts, either to experience or awareness, acknowledge each thought, gently return it to its source and merge with it. Allow your attention to brush over the Question and focus once again on your breath.
As you continue the practice of meditation, your mind gradually begins to present you with programs that have been drawn from deeper and deeper in memory. It does this because you are not giving attention to the surface ones, and your mind’s job is to provide experience.
Your mind holds a detailed record of your Path and all its landmarks in holographic memory. As recognize each arising thought and gently return it, and your mind extracts experience from deeper within its holographic memory, it must follow your Path. But it must follow it only if you remain in Balance. The moment you take a thought, be it experience or awareness, you are creating your Path rather than following it. If this should happen, simply acknowledge it for what it is and return your attention to your breath. Do not take the thought of taking a thought.
As you travel your Path, you may recall faces, voices, or entire movies from the past that include all the emotion they carried when they "happened." Great! Recognize each for what it is, gently return it to its source and merge with it. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
As you continue the process, your mind begins to reach for something deeper in your memory of your movie of reality. Your mind’s job is to provide experience. It is seeking some experience along your Path, something that will take you out of your meditative state and give you experience. In tracing your memory back, your mind follows the same holographic map it created in the development of your paradigm. You are experiencing your Path. Your mind follows the same Path that it used in creating this movie of reality, only this time the Path is in reverse. You are on the way out of movie by the same route that you arrived.
Your mind will present the "little" things first, but it is not possible for you to determine what your mind thinks are "little" things. Remember, your Path is holographic and its landmarks do not follow the logic we use in consensus reality. For some, the first things may be relationships, family, jobs, or hobbies. Beliefs, fears, hopes and dreams may follow them. For another, the very god of their life may surface immediately, with masters, teachers, and promises of guidance or enlightenment. All of these are landmarks along your Path. Treat them all with the same discipline.
Recall, once again, the holographic nature of these landmarks. Know that the only thing you can do is trust in the fact that your mind knows your Path. It alone created the matrix of thought that presents your movie of reality to you. It will travel that matrix in exactly the proper order on its journey back. You should not allow yourself to interpret your Path. You should not assign separation, limitation or meaning to it. You should take each and every presentation of your mind as it comes, and apply the rule:
If it contains separation, limitation or meaning, recognize it for what it is, gently return it to its source, and merge with it. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
When your mind has reached far into memory for presentations of your Path, you will begin to enter the transpersonal realm of energy and awareness. This awareness arises in the same manner that the thoughts of your mind arise, but it appears as if it is from another source because this new awareness is still interpreted by your mind. You are now becoming fully aware of Mind.
It is possible to become as fully immersed in awareness as we now are in experience. Should you enter fully into awareness and become immersed in it, you have just passed through Balance. And it is the point where most children, learning to walk and having taken that first step, will fall. When you pass through the presentations of your mind and into Mind, you have just taken your first great step. You have left the world of consensus reality and entered the realm of full awareness. Now is the time to remember to put your foot down and return to Balance. You will go there again, and when you have learned to enter and return with just a thought, you are ready to go deeper. Our meditation is not the place from which to enter Mind. Our meditation is the discipline of attention.
Again, Balance is a state between experience and awareness. It is neither experience or awareness, yet it is both. If it happens that Mind is predominant in your mediation, you have drifted to the other side of Balance and you must apply the same discipline to its presentations. Recognize them for what they are; they are a presentation of Mind that came from within. Now, gently return them to their source and merge with them. Each time you merge with a thought, allow your attention to pass gently over the Question and return your attention to your breath.
Above all, create no expectations for meditation. Enter meditation only with the purpose of practicing Balance. Treat each presentation of Mind in the same manner that you have treated the presentations of your mind. Recognize them for what they are, gently return them to their source, and merge with them. Each presentation of Mind will be interpreted by your mind, and the presentations of your mind may begin again. You are in motion and, when you are able to return your attention quickly and easily to your breath, in Balance.
Some teach that meditation is "stilling the mind." Our meditation is not. Meditation is a discipline, and the discipline should continue as long as Balance is not present. Balance is in motion, therefore, meditation is a constant practice. Meditation is balancing the activity of the mind and Mind. When the mind is still and inactive in the background, as Mind has been, you are not in Balance. I said you should have no goal in meditation, and this is true, but proper meditation brings Balance. You should recognize that Balance is achieved when both your mind and Mind respond equally to attention. For this reason, do not enter meditation expecting to still the mind and become aware of Mind. When you do, you will quiet your mind and become immersed in Mind. This is not Balance.
Balance is the state in which both the mind and Mind are fully active. We have mentioned this, but because this is true, it is also a state in which both may appear fully inactive. This state is beyond description, but it is neither void of experience or empty of awareness. It is not possible to say when you have achieved this state; there are no words in our paradigm to describe it. But it is possible to say when you have not. When either your mind or Mind provide overwhelming presentations in your awareness -- presentations that do not respond to your discipline of attention during meditation -- you are not in Balance. When in Balance, you are able to move freely into both experience and awareness with just a slight shift of attention, and able to return with just a thought, just another shift of attention.
You are to expect nothing to happen during your meditation. The benefit of your practice of pushups does not happen while you are doing the pushups. The pushup is a discipline. The benefit of pushups arises while you are going about your daily activities. The benefit of your meditation surfaces in the same manner. It integrates itself into your consensus movie. You find it easier to recall memories. Your ability at cognitive thought -- the thoughtful consideration of other possibilities, increases as your awareness expands. It becomes easier for you to give attention to a chosen task, and easier to remain aware of the nature of reality while you are involved in it. Your body chemistry changes, so you have more energy and experience less stress. All these are natural results of meditation, but the greatest result is your ability to choose and maintain where your attention will be focused. This results in an increased ability to maintain Balance in your consensus movie. You will find this same Balance arising as you focus your attention on any aspect of your movie of reality. And eventually, you will be able to enter awareness with just a thought.
Once again, stilling the mind is not the discipline we are practicing. We are in motion in our meditation. Stilling the mind and entering into awareness is a tremendous experience -- but it is not meditation. This is one of the aspects of meditation that is most lacking in the Western teachings. We tend to think that stilling the mind and gaining expanded awareness is a goal for meditation. When Eastern students report their tendency to remain in expanded awareness to their masters, their experience of entering the transpersonal realm, they are instructed again in the discipline of meditation. Immersion in awareness is interpreted by our mind as an experience. There is no experience in meditation, there is only the motion between experience and awareness. There is only Balance.
End of lesson.
How long should you meditate? Fifteen to twenty minutes twice a day is good. But if you become frustrated, do it for 10 minutes or less and do it more often. Be flexible. Work with your mind. If you were to do 100 pushups today for the first time in your life, you would not want to do any tomorrow. Three would be better than one, but one would be better than none. For now, though, let 20 minutes, twice a day be the maximum amount of meditation.
Closing the eyes may cause your mind to interpret the activity as a prelude to sleep. This sometimes causes drowsiness. You may try meditation with the eyes open, but we are sight -- and sound -- oriented in our realities. With the eyes open, the visual information in our meditation area may become predominate for some of us, and we find it difficult to hold our attention on our breath. It’s easy to reduce the sound level, but there is usually a host of information available to the eyes. Dimming the lights and focusing on a candle may help but this, too, can cause drowsiness.
Gansfield glasses work well in these cases. They supply the eyes with a soft, diffused light that creates a sensory overload of visual information and allows us to keep our eyes open during meditation. Because the mind cannot extract any specific information from this diffused light, it soon disregards it.
Gansfield glasses can be made easily. Cut a ping pong ball in half and trim the halves to fit comfortably over your eyes. Attach the halves with a light elastic band. A snug but comfortable fit will reduce the visual input to the eyes to a clear white haze. Keep your eyes open while wearing them and, after a while, you will not even know if your eyes are open or closed. The diffused light may cause your mind to compensate for the lack of visual information by creating more visual movies to arise in your mind, but you can treat them as you would any projection of your mind. Recognize them, and gently return them to their source.
If you are unable to find a quiet place for meditation, try a white noise tape. Like the diffused light from the Gansfield glasses, white noise contains so much audio information so as to cause the mind to disregard it all. You can purchase white-noise tapes, or you can make one yourself. Tune a television to an empty channel, or disconnect the cable. The "hash" you hear is close enough to true white noise to accomplish your goal. Make a tape of the noise long enough to cover your time in meditation. Put headphones on and turn the volume up enough so that the objectionable noise is drowned out. As with the Gansfield glasses, your mind may begin to place sounds in the white noise. You may hear voices, music, or a beat. Treat it as you would any projection of your mind. Recognize it for what it is, gently return it to its source, and merge with it.
You should not become dependent on these aids. They will help at first, but you should always set aside a time of unassisted mediation, and you should eventually eliminate them all.
There is no such thing as a good or a bad meditation. You could not have spent all that time flowing easily between experience and awareness without practice, and this includes all the "bad" meditations you have had. There may be times when the mind is very active and other times when Mind explodes in awareness. Review this fact after every meditation. Do not set a goal in your meditation, thinking that you will soon reach a "level" where you can go for an entire meditation without a single thought while you remain focused on your breath. Going without a single thought is not the direction in which you wish to go. Your discipline is not to still the mind, but to expand awareness beyond the limits of your paradigm by learning to move freely from experience to awareness. Simply do it, and accept whatever your mind or Mind has to offer each and every time. There are those who have continual thoughts throughout each and every meditation, yet their practice is just a effective as those who have only a few. The benefits of meditation come from the act of performing it, not from an evaluation of it.
The practice of meditation increases your Balance. It gives you practice in the process of recognizing, merging, and returning. The process of recognizing the source of your experience or your awareness, merging with it, and returning to your center is Balance in motion. It is a continual flow of attention between limited experience and full awareness. It produces a kind of stillness, yet in the stillness there is motion.
There is a commonly held belief that, at some time during meditation, you will be visited by a teacher or Master. This is an expectation and a limitation. If you believe this, if you expect this, it will happen. But it is a projection of your mind. No Master anywhere will interrupt your discipline of meditation. Make sure you understand this. Those who teach hold your freedom of choice in the highest regard. They respond only to a question held in the Heart, and the place of the Heart is not immersed in experience or awareness, it is in Balance. Masters will not, under any circumstances, interrupt your discipline of meditation. They know what is happening as a result of your practice and honor the fact that you have chosen to perform it. You may have asked those around you to allow you time alone, unplugged the phone, and reduced the noise in order to gain the conditions you require to focus your attention. Do you think a Master would not honor this choice? Again, meditation is a discipline. Knowledge of the process, and the Integration of this Knowledge, are the only tools you require. Keep it as such.
You have been given a basic meditation, but there are many excellent meditation techniques. You can read books, attend groups, or even get someone to coach you if your mind will respond. Working with the mind is always a good practice, but you should always check out what you are becoming involved in and apply your understanding of separation, limitation, and meaning.
Again, some groups focus their attention in an effort to "get something," in meditation, and some even share what they have "gotten" after each session. This practice is not the discipline of meditation that brings Balance. It is an excellent method of allowing alternate movies to run in the mind, and the mind loves to run movies, so the mind is sure to participate. This is not to say that the process is "bad." It is simply not the discipline you require.
Other groups meditate on something such as world peace or an end to hunger. This is creative visualization rather than meditation. It is focusing attention, but it includes separation, limitation, and meaning -- all of which are self-generated. It is the focus of attention on the movie of reality in an attempt to change or improve the movie. Again, there is nothing "wrong" with the practice, but it will not develop in you the power of attention you require to continue on your Path. When you look for guidance or check out a group, remain aware of the principles of separation, limitation, and meaning -- the presentation of Maya.
We have compared the mind -- and Mind -- to the muscles of our body. When we exercise just one muscle or group of muscles of our body, giving little attention to the rest, a state of imbalance results. Likewise, when we exercise our attention on the function of the mind, giving little attention to the awareness of Mind, a state of imbalance exists. But what we must know is that while we are in a state of conscious awareness, we cannot "not" give attention. When we think that we have too little time to seek Balance -- too little time to give attention to the awareness that is Mind, we are giving attention to consensus reality. In doing so, we are developing the mind, and so the paradigm that causes our imbalance.
Attention will be given. It is a simple choice of attention, and each of us must make that choice every waking moment of our life.


To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;



In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.



Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;



There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.



The true and constant must respond to phenomena;



Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.



When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;



When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.



When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;



Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí are joined.



Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;



Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.



White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;



The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.



Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;



You wander so freely—who is able to know you?



Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;



Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.



It comes entirely from these twenty lines;



A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -













To   us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from   others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.   Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-

"The   center of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in   which one can learn to live eternally. Just outside of this Center is   the rotating storm of one's own ego, competing with other egos in a   furious high-velocity circular dance. As one leaves center, the roar of   rotating wind deafens on more and more as one joins this dance. One's   centered thinking-feeling-being, one's own Satoris, are in the center   only, not outside. One's pushed-pulled driven states, one's anti-Satori   modes of functioning, one's self-created hells, are outside the center.   In the center of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life,   rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us.




Here we find that we have created Them who are Us." -- John C. Lilly -

Unless   you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot   forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by   pain..inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!


"The man, who,  being really on the Way, falls upon hard times in the world will not, as  a consequence, turn to that friend who offers him refuge and comfort  and encourages his old self to survive. Rather, he will seek out someone  who will faithfully and inexorably help him to risk himself, so that he  may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it. Only to the  extent that man exposes himself over and over again to annihilation, can  that which is indestructible arise within him. In this lies the dignity  of daring."
