Our deepest fear again..from Marianne Williamson..


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! so listen to the mahayogi..,grasshopper from heaven...
.
In silence there must be movement, and in motion,
There must be silence.
A small movement is better than a big one..
No movement is better than a small one..listen!
Silence is all the movement's mother..
In Movement you should be like a dragon or a tiger.
In non Movement you should be like a Buddha.  
-- Wang Xiangzhai(November 26, 1885 - July 12, 1963}
What is referred to as mindlessness is absence of the human mentality; what is referred to as mindfulness is mindfulness of the Tao. When one is free of the human mentality, the mutual sensing of the earthly and celestial is swift; when one is mindful of the Tao, effective practice endures. Swiftness of sensing comes about spontaneously, without cultivation, without striving; long perseverance comes about through effort, and involves action and striving. Striving and non-striving each has its secret; the distinction is all a matter of the absence of the human mentality and the presence of mindfulness of the Tao. After one has reached complete realization of the universal Tao, neither existence nor nonexistence remain; others and self are ultimately empty, and one enters the state of ultimate truthfulness, like a spirit. Here, it is not only the human mentality that cannot be applied; even the mindfulness of Tao is not applicable." - Liu I-ming The Conduct of the Moon and Clouds 

The consistent conduct of people of the Way is like the flowing clouds with no grasping mind, like the full moon reflecting universally, not confined anywhere, glistening within each of the ten thousand forms. Dignified and upright, emerge and make contact with the variety of phenomena, unstained and unconfused. Function the same toward all others since all have the same substance as you. Language cannot transmit this, speculation cannot reach it. Leaping beyond the infinite and cutting off the dependent, be obliging without looking for merit. This marvel cannot be measured with consciousness or emotion. On the journey accept your function, in your house please sustain it. Comprehending birth and death, leaving causes and conditions, genuinely realize that from the outset your spirit is not halted. So we have been told that the mind that embraces all the ten directions does not stop anywhere. -- Hongzhi Zhengjue (1091-1157)




 

Our deepest fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson(from "A Return to Love'' book..the above quotes)

The student asked: “A sage's response to changing conditions

is unlimited. Does he have to study beforehand?”

He should worry only about his mind's not being

clear, and not about the inability to respond to all changing conditions.”

— Wang Yang Ming (1472-1529)
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(heaven and earth) 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.

Here we find that we have created Them who are Us...

*note* you think you need food?..all you need is water and salt.
Have you ever met those pruned looking hunchbacks of Nostradamus old women...about 1 meter tall?
When you walk on the street?...
no joy in their faces..just the pruned face like the Texas coyote's hapless  
wrinkles and waves on his chin bones?? ?
Why is this ISSUE with water..why nobody drinks water anymore?
Is obvious after I busted my coyote mahayogi ass telling people...,,drink water,,
They rather die ..than drink it.
But we all die in the end..
No?

Local auto parts dealer swears by the 'water cure'

 KINGSTON - Although he is an auto parts dealer, Bob Butts spends a fortune trying to cure people's health problems.

Over the last 16 years, the owner of Cee-Kay Auto Parts stores has spent more than $600,000 advertising what he believes is the cure to every illness caused by dehydration.
His recommended cure involves drinking enough water every day equal to half your body weight in ounces, using one-quarter teaspoon of sea salt for each quart of water and avoiding alcohol, soda and caffeine.
Butts, 75, has received both praise and criticism for the "water cure" he promotes in his five auto parts stores in Kingston, Wilkes-Barre, Pittston, Moosic and Scranton and the Web site, www.watercure2.org. He also has been featured in national news stories and has appeared on television and radio stations promoting this "cure" that is not making him any money, he said.
Butts believes so strongly in the water cure that he says, "If someone puts a gun to my head, I'm not going to back down."
He also frequently alleges corruption, saying neither health officials or politicians want to hear about the "cure" because medical treatments and prescriptions are expensive and drinking water is free.
"This is the biggest hoax in history. This whole thing is extortion," Butts said. "People think I'm nuts. I don't care what they think."
His latest advertising campaign features testimonials from famous people who said they were helped by the water cure such as Anson Williams, who played Postie Weber on "Happy Days." Williams said drinking water and using sea salt has taken away his asthma, aches and pains.
Butts' ads charge President Obama and other legislators waste trillions of dollars looking for a cure that is already here. He charges that third world countries which use salt and water to treat dehydration are ahead of the United States.
"This is no miracle. This is simple common sense," Butts said. "I believe this is the one thing that could save our country."
Butts learned about the water cure from the book "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" written by Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, who died at age 73 from complications from pneumonia.
Butts said he decided to promote the water cure after losing $800,000 in a legal battle with a former business partner. He went to bed angry and woke up as a "changed person," deciding to promote something he believed would help people and not make him any money. After reading about others helped by drinking more water and using sea salt, he decided to focus his efforts on that.
Butts has seen positive results from the water cure first-hand. He drinks three quarts of water and uses sea salt every day, which has alleviated his back pain and he no longer has allergies, he said.
"Allergies were gone in a couple days," Butts said. "There's no way medical research doesn't know this. The number one protocol is salt and water. It's an absolute no-brainer."
During an interview at his auto parts store in Kingston, Butts was joined by a Pittston resident, Todd Thorne, who said the water cure helped alleviate his pain.
Thorne, 46, was hurt at work five years ago. He was diagnosed with a chronic pain disease called "reflex sympathetic dystrophy" or RSD, which Butts calls a "really stupid diagnosis."
"This is stupid we can't cure anything," Butts said. "It's corporate America. It's all about money."
Thorne learned about the "water cure" at Cee-Kay Auto Parts store in Pittston. With a large water bottle in his hand, Thorne said he has been drinking more water and using sea salt for the last two years. Now, he is no longer in a wheelchair. He hasn't had a seizure in two years, he said. He said he went from taking 14 pills a day to three. When he was taking so many pills, he said he was like a "zombie."
"I can't be a zombie. I have two kids and a wife who rely on me," Thorne said. "Now, my sense of well-being is totally turned around. My level of pain was at about 20. Now, it's about 2."
Butts, a father of five daughters, lives in Elmhurst. He graduated from high school in Moosic and attended Keystone College.
Testimonials
Consider expanding information search: Google the ailment & add "cured with water and sea salt." This will access a lot more information.
The common cause of the illnesses listed on our testimonials pages is chronic dehydration.

That is why when people do the water cure and are no longer dehydrated, many so called incurable problems go away. Dehydration, thanks to consuming diuretic caffeinated, alcoholic or soda drinks devastate our immune systems and turns our pH acid, compromising our immune systems to the degree our bodies are dehydrated and acidic. It is impossible for any drug or procedure, other than a saline IV, to cure any problem caused by dehydration. That's why Dr. Batmanghelidj said, "You are not sick, you are thirsty." If the water cure were followed according to Dr. B.'s book, "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" we could save hundreds of thousands of Americans yearly from slow, painful, premature deaths while cutting health costs down to a fraction of what they are today. The savings would be more than enough to save the financial health of our nation and millions of jobs.

The Truth About SALT

http://www.watercuretribute.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=31&Itemid=40 

In the middle ages no salt was so dangerous, criminals were often put to death by being put in a cell and given no salt. It caused a slow agonizing death.

2000 years ago salt was used as money. Gold and salt had the same value. The word salary comes from salt.

In the old days, salt was used to preserve foods. Today, we have refrigeration, so less salt is required except for maybe curing meats.

All warm blooded animals must have salt to live.
The human brain and spine is in a sac of salt water called CSF (cerebrospinal fluid). This liquid circulates throughout the brain and spinal cord.

We all spent approx 9 months in our mothers belly floating in salt water (amniotic fluid).

Our tears are salty and we sweat salt.
Our bones are hollow in the center (marrow) where blood cells are made. The marrow is covered with many strands of calcium salts, the way rope is woven together.  Salt crystals are woven in with the calcium and these salt crystals are what make our bones hard, not the calcium.

27% of the body’s salt content is located in the bones. When the body requires more salt it can borrow it from the bones. When this happens, calcium is also removed with the salt making the bones thinner, softer and brittle.

Salt is made up of sodium and chlorine. Together they are called Sodium chloride (Na Cl).

Sodium is a soft positive charged metal where chlorine is a negative charged gas that becomes a liquid when put under pressure.

Chlorine is a gas/liquid but somehow when the earth was formed the chlorine became a solid with the sodium and trace minerals.

You can crush the salt crystals into a powder and the chlorine stays with the sodium. Chlorine as a solid is called chloride.

The salt we use today comes from our oceans, lakes or salt mines. In addition to sodium and chlorine, all the salt on planet earth comes with many trace minerals mixed into it.

So we can assume that these trace minerals are very important or they would not be combined with the salt. Because of the commercial value of these minerals they are removed in order to make big profits.

The human body is able to split the chlorine from the sodium as needed. Our blood requires chlorine as do many of our organs. The stomach uses chlorine to make hydrochloric acid required so we can digest our food correctly.

Our body also uses the sodium chloride as salt to keep the brain, spine, tears, bones, sweat glands, organs and blood topped up with salt. The body benefits from the other trace minerals that help keep the body alkaline and healthy.

Just as drinking too much plain water can kill a person (hyponatremia). The same thing is true with taking too much salt, it can cause swelling, diarrhea, and death.

Table salt is purified by removing the trace minerals and heating the salt to 1200 o F. Now all you have is 40% sodium and 60% chloride then an anti-caking agent is added so it won’t stick together.

Too much sodium can happen from eating too many food additives containing sodium as a binder (sort of a glue). Sodium is not salt. Salt is sodium chloride.

Sodium bicarbonate, sodium benzoate and MSG (mono sodium glutamate) are just a few of these additives.

Sodium, potassium and chloride are electrolytes (special minerals) that dissolve in water and carry electrical charges anywhere there is water in the body.

These electrically charged minerals can freely move into a cell and back out again carrying nutrients in and removing waste products and excess water as to keep the cell balanced.

At the same time as these electrolytes move in and out of the cells making their exchanges, a delicate balance of potassium inside the cell must be maintained with a special amount of sodium and chloride to hold the potassium in the center of the cell.

Electrolytes are found in all fluids of the body and carry impulses along your nerves. This helps your muscles, like the heart and diaphragm, contract and relax.

Electrolytes carry glucose (blood sugar) into the cell after insulin opens the door or gate for the sugar to be taken in.

Electrolytes also turn “cation pumps” that generate electricity which is stored in the Mg ATP and Mg GTP batteries of the body.

If a person loses too many of these electrolytes from having diarrhea or from taking a water pill  (diuretic) they can become very sick and must go to the hospital and receive IVs of saline (salt water), dextrose (sugar water) and minerals.

Many of our beverages today contain caffeine that is a diuretic, acting as a water pill, causing a water shortage in the body. Nothing replaces plain water according to Dr Batman.

Scientists and doctors still don’t know how salt dissolves in water or how it can keep getting saltier and saltier. Scientists and chemists have some theories but can’t prove any of them.

What Salt Does For You

Salt has many other functions than just regulating the water content of the body.

Here are some of its additional important functions in the body according to Dr. Batman in his book, ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus on pages 144-150:

Salt is a powerful natural antihistamine. The next time you get a runny nose or watery eyes from allergies, try drinking a glass of plain water, then put a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and let it dissolve.

Asthma symptoms can be relieved by drinking one or two glasses of plain water, then putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and letting it dissolve. Try it next time… before using your inhaler.

Salt helps relieve “stress” symptoms.

Salt is important for the removal of acidity from your brain cells.

Kidneys will not work correctly without salt.

Depression and emotional problems are greatly relieved by taking more salt, drinking plain water, eating correctly and walking.

Bladder control problems and unintentional urine leakage could be helped by adding more salt into your diet.

Diabetics can bring down their blood sugar levels and reduce their need for insulin by taking salt.

Irregular heartbeats may be stopped by putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and letting it dissolve.

Our digestive system requires salt to properly absorb the food we eat.

Asthma, emphysema and cystic fibrosis sufferers can get rid of mucus and phlegm in the lungs by using salt and drinking plain water.

Gout symptoms can be prevented by using salt.

If you get muscle cramps (Charlie horses, etc.), salt may relieve them. Try putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and let it dissolve.

Bones get their hardness from salt, not calcium.

Osteoporosis is mainly caused by not taking enough salt and water everyday

Salt is essential for preventing varicose and spider veins on the legs.

Are you having problems maintaining an erection, you need to eat more salt and drink more plain water.

Salt may help reduce a double chin. The salivary glands in your mouth sense your body is low on salt and produce more saliva. Over time, this increased production of saliva causes the saliva glands to “leak” in the area under your chin. One possible way to get rid of a double chin.

Taking salt and drinking plain water before exercising will help you to breathe better and sweat less.

Because there is potassium in almost everything we eat, salt needs to be added to our food. This will allow our body to maintain the proper balance of water between the inside and outside oceans of water in our cells.

In a study of almost 3,000 men that had high blood pressure, the men on a low-salt diet had a 430% increase in heart attacks when compared to the men who ate a high-salt diet.

Low-salt diets have also been shown to increase total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels and fasting insulin levels.

Questions To Think About:

It has been over thirty years since we were first told to eat a low salt diet in order to avoid having high blood pressure. Why then, do more Americans have high blood pressure today than they did thirty years ago?

Why do you get High Blood Pressure on a low-salt diet?

Our blood is 94% water, our brain is 85% water and our soft tissue is 75% water.

Dr Batman says water, salt and potassium together regulate the water content of the body.

Basically, every cell in our body has an /ocean of fresh water/ inside the cell and an /ocean of salt water/ outside the cell. Good health depends on a most delicate balance of the water between these two oceans.

Salt forces water to stay in the outside /ocean of water/ of the cell (osmotic retention) and potassium holds water in the inside /ocean of water/ of the cell.

When the body is low on water (you are not drinking enough) it will increase the volume of salty water in the outside ocean of the cell.

Through a special mechanism, a hormone (vasopressin) is released that can filter out the salt from the outside ocean and inject some fresh water into the center ocean as needed to maintain the delicate balance.

For this method to work, the capillaries (blood vessels) must constrict by the use of vasopressin. This causes the capillaries to /tighten up,/ giving you high blood pressure, which is necessary in order to filter and inject water from the outside ocean of water into the inside ocean of water.

One cause of high blood pressure is a lack of fresh water for the inside ocean of the cell according to Dr Batman. We call it hypertension.

Dr Batman says if a person will walk (exercise), drink more plain water (in the place of coffee, tea, soda) and add just a little more salt (not sodium) to their diet, their blood pressure will normalize again.

How Much Salt Should You Take?

Dr Batman suggests we use…

1/8 tsp* (3/4 g) *of salt* (unrefined sea salt is best) *for every 16 oz *(half a liter) *of water we drink*… ½ tsp of salt for every half a gallon of water and a full tsp of salt for one gallon of water.

Note: If a person is not going to the bathroom at least three times per day, they should check with their doctor first before drinking more water and using more salt.

Your kidneys must be working properly. This means…the amount of liquid you drink should be almost equal to the amount of urine you are eliminating every day.

At the same time, going to the bathroom too frequently (too many trips) per day will pull very important vitamins, minerals and electrolytes out of your body and can cause more harm than good.

Salt can be very harmful to the human body if the proper amount of plain water is not taken with it, to keep the proper balance of electrolytes.

You should be very careful when adding more plain water to your diet. Add it very slowly so that the water will not act as a diuretic causing you to lose your electrolytes and become ill (dehydrated).

The body must adjust to drinking plain water after drinking coffee, tea and soda containing caffeine, because they contain caffeine or other chemicals that cause the body to work in a different mode.

Just like you have to keep filling up the gas tank in a car or it stop’s running, the body works the same way. You must drink water at regular intervals throughout the day because our body does not have a “gas tank” to draw from.

When you drink plain water the body uses what it needs right away and what it doesn’t need goes to the kidneys and out of the body.

If a person has some swelling (edema) that is not from an injury or surgery and wants to get rid of it, Dr B says water can be used as a /natural diuretic/ providing their kidneys and heart are working ok.

When we drink enough water to pass clear urine, we also pass out a lot of the salt that was held in the body.

There Are 4 Suggested Ways To Take The Salt:

1. The first way is to just coat the front part of your tongue with the salt, making sure that you taste the salt, and then drink the water over the salt, washing it down.

2. You could also just put the extra salt on your food. The only problem with that is acquiring a taste for very salty food.

3. If you are very salt-sensitive then you would get some empty capsules and put the amount of salt you require into the capsules and take it with food.

4. Mixing salt into the water for drinking is not a very good idea. Only young children and seniors that are having trouble remembering things should mix 1/8 tsp of salt into 16 oz of plain water and drink their water this way until they start remembering things again.

Another Medical Doctor's Point Of View

Dr David Brownstein, in his book “Salt your way to health”, said he was taught in medical school that salt causes high blood pressure and everybody should be on a low-salt diet. While treating his patients, he started to notice the ones who had high blood pressure received very little benefit from a low-salt diet. Most of them were also low on minerals.

In his search for ways to help these patients he came across unrefined salt. By suggesting that his patients should use unrefined salt, which has over 80 trace minerals in it, he noticed something strange start to happen.

His patients with high blood pressure were finding that their blood pressure was actually coming down. To the point they could come off of their medications.

Dr Brownstein, MD has a current medical practice at the Center for Holistic Medicine, West Bloomfield, MI 48323 (www.drbrownstein.com). Dr Brownstein’s book, “Salt your way to health” will show you how adding the right kind of salt to your diet can help: adrenal disorders, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, fatigue, headaches, immune system function and thyroid disorders.

The Water Cure: An interview with Dr. Batmanghelidj


Treating hypertension with water

Mike: For the pharmaceutical industry, the existence of disease is a business question, because let's face it, the pharmaceutical industry is a for-profit industry. Profits are always first, and at least it's my belief, and it seems that you share it, that any therapy that competes with those profits is minimized, marginalized or outright attacked.

Dr. B: Yes, recently there was an ad on the television. It was very interesting -- I didn't realize it at the beginning, but I now realize that the ad was speaking to me. In other words, it was an ad against my statements. Because I've said that the heartburn is a sign of dehydration in the human body and you should drink water. And this guy comes and sits at the counter and asks, “Give me a glass of water, my heartburn is killing me.” Or something like that. And the lady behind the counter says, “Water doesn't cure heartburn -- this medication does.” So see, this is how the pharmaceutical industry fights the information that I put out. But nonetheless, people who did discover that water could cure their heartburn are wiser than those who buy into that advertising stunt.

Mike: It seems like there are almost two different groups of people in the United States. There are those who are now dependent on multiple pharmaceuticals to treat everything, every symptom that they have, and who alter their body chemistry and their brain chemistry through drugs, and then there are those who are educating themselves about the true causes of health. They're drinking water, they're avoiding food additives, they're engaging in exercise -- it seems like there's a chasm that's widening between these two groups.

Dr. B: Absolutely. That's why alternative medicine has picked up and you're getting more people going to alternative medicine than conventional medicine. You see, I've sold at least over 600,000 copies of my book Your Body's Many Cries for Water over the past 10 years. And so I've had over several thousand radio interviews in the past 10 years. Information is getting out into the hands of the public, so the pharmaceutical industry has to naturally increase its advertising to nullify this information that I have put out. That is why they have produced this ad -- one of many, actually.

Anyway, we were talking about drought management programs in the body. Hypertension is another one of these problems. When there isn't enough water in the body, or the body becomes dehydrated, 66% of the water loss is from the interior of the cells. 26% is from the environment around the cells, and only 8% is lost from the vascular system. But the vascular system is an elastic system -- it tightens up and takes up the slack so you don't see the problem that is going on inside the cells of your body by testing your blood that is being tested in so many conditions. If people drank water on a regular basis and took enough salt and minerals to expand the capillary beds, hypertension would disappear completely.

And there are 60 million Americans who don't realize that actually hypertension is one of the manifestations of drought management programs of the body when the body begins to operate a reverse osmosis process, to deliver water into the interior of those cells which are 66% water deficient. Now the pharmaceutical industry and the medical doctors arrogantly and ignorantly are treating hypertension with diuretics.

Mike: Let's get rid of the water!

Dr. B: They are getting rid of the water in the body, at a lot of, how shall I say, effort.

Mike: Isn't this an example of the arrogance of modern medicine in believing that it knows more than nature, it knows more than the body?

Dr. B: We, as doctors, are really 007 agents of the pharmaceutical industry. We are totally blind and ignorant and the pharmaceutical industry has hijacked medicine. We learn a couple of years of physiology, and soon as we go on the clinical side we are asked to forget those and begin to learn pharmacology in order to treat symptoms rather than understand the primary cause of the health problem.

Mike: But you were trained in classic, conventional way...

Dr. B: I had to educate myself.

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(heaven and earth) 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.





Here we find that we have created Them who are Us...





Lilly's Law





"In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the(true mind..added by danny) mind, there are no limits."" -- 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 student asked: “A sage's response to changing conditions



is unlimited. Does he have to study beforehand?”



He should worry only about his mind's not being



clear, and not about the inability to respond to all changing conditions.”

— Wang Yang Ming (1472-1529)

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
