The 3 Am-egos

Recently, it has become apparent that the ego functions in as if 3 parts. And those 3 parts are reflected by the Triune structure of the brain. (just Google Triune Brain for more)

The first ego aspect is the idea that we are separate. The mental construct that identifies us and tells our stories about who we are and how the world is. We loose this idea when we first wake up but it can take some time for the “shrapnel” to dissolve. This is the loss of the first Maya, the illusion that we are separate.

Switchwords

Ran into something interesting today, from a Brazilian contact. Its called Switchwords, basically a seed word to trigger a specific result. Like for finding keys or getting a ride.

This is not unlike the idea of a root mantra, but more targeted at need. A one word affirmation, in certain ways. Some people evidently swear by it.

Its also worth noting the process of Samyama, outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra. Basically if you combine Self-awareness with open allowing consciousness, then have a specific thought, the result will occur. Much the same way, these are not about trying.

The … Continue Reading…

Mayan Calendar

Last night I went to a presentation by Dr. Carl Calleman on the Mayan Calendar. He is one of the foremost authorities on the subject and many in the field count him as their mentor. He explained the nature and function of the calendar as a map of the energy of time and the changes taking place.

He places the completion of the calendar at Oct 23, 2011. Not based on the older understanding but on scientific research. Its also the date the Mayan elders subscribe to. But he also observes that the end date is not the most important … Continue Reading…

Morphic Fields

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the concept of Morphic fields and their consequences.

http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/papers/morphic/morphic_intro.html

“memory is inherent in nature”
“Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.”
“How are these fields inherited? I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance.”
“The fields organizing the activity of the nervous system are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species.”
“The resonance of a brain … Continue Reading…

What to Do?

Nirmala talks about What to Do?

“The question of what is going on here, what is this experience of doing, can be a rich experience in and of itself. The question can put us more in touch with our experience than any answer can. The question invites a direct sensing of all of these various levels of our experience. As the broom moves across the floor, is it possible to simultaneously experience the emptiness within, the richness and oneness of all things and the personal actions of our particular body? Why do we have to choose one?

And what about … Continue Reading…

Love Is

“Is this love – is this love – is this love – Is this love that I’m feelin’?”

Well – maybe… Probably not really. We are surrounded by messages of love in our culture. Most of the songs we hear are about love gained or lost. Talk of dating and relationships. Most magazines, whatever the subject or market, feature beautiful women on the cover. Confused messages about what love is or isn’t, what we want and don’t want.

The basic issue is that we have an innate sense of what real Love is but no consistent way to experience it. … Continue Reading…

The past

hmmm – OK, first thing to touch on is about personalities. From a higher perspective, we discover that the “person” we thought we were is really just a series of personalities, each with their own story. As we move through life, we shift them according to circumstances. We pop up with the dad model, then the worker, then the jock, then lover… Each building on our past.

As we become more self-aware, we may follow the thread back to where these stories originated. Parental experiences. First relationships. Where we had positive or negative feedback, and so forth. But we also … Continue Reading…
