New markets

Now heres an interesting new trend in the marketplace. Books, DVD’s, seminars and retreats for people who are already awake and wish to go further. Wish to open still more to the depth of being. Adyashanti’s “Journey after Awakening” DVD comes to mind. Makes it pretty real, huh? Davidya

Stroke of insight

In the 18 minute clip on the below link, Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor talks at the TED conference about her personal experience of a stroke. She had a blood vessel burst in her left brain causing her to gradually lose functions. Because of her background, she was able to monitor the shift and explore the consequences as a scientist. The experience also gave her a spiritual epiphany. She describes the experience and her discoveries. A remarkable story. http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/229 In the clip, she describes (and shows) the 2 hemispheres of the brain. She goes over how the hemispheres differ, that the … Continue Reading…

Perspective

In the recent issue of the Bleeping Herald , one of the filmmakers of What the Bleep, Will Arntz, talks about Connectedness. http://www.bleepingherald.com/mar2008/filmmakers My response: Dear Will Thanks for the great article in the latest Herald. I wanted to suggest something. The concept of perspective. If you define the process by perspective and how they shift, it makes the process even clearer. If we study human development and the awakening process, we can define a series of stages or states of consciousness people will pass though in their growth cycle. For example, when a baby is born, they feel one … Continue Reading…

the Waking

“David Hawkins, in his book, Power vs. Force outlines precisely what level of consciousness, measured in energy, is required to  counterbalance the lower levels of consciousness. When enough of us become enlightened (allegedly calculated to the square root of 1% of the world’s population which is just over 8,000 people), the level of consciousness of the entire universe will shift. Hawkins even states the numbers and claims that we have, in fact, already reached ‘critical mass’. ACIM states that when this level of consciousness reaches this point the manifestation of our thought energy will be the disappearance of the entire … Continue Reading…

Whats up?

From a discussion on Adam, the Dreamhealer and unexplained phenomenon. As Adam has observed, in our culture we focus on the physical, the surface values of our experience. Less physical things like electricity and magnetism are somewhat mysterious. Many people are only vaguely aware that they have thoughts, and feelings are often these apparently random events that wash over us. We have no context for subtler values of anything. Physics however tells us there is a whole host of subtler values, many with different laws of nature operating. If we do a systematic study on the subjective side of the … Continue Reading…

Maharishi Passes

As the following article states, we have reached the end of an era. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a person who brought meditation and its scientific study to the west in a big way, has passed on at about 91. Funeral rites made major headlines in India and were televised live. The government showered him with rose petals from a helicopter. He was given a silent form of a 21 gun salute. The Shankaracharya blessed the proceedings and many sages were present. I was lucky enough to have had a conversation with him in the mid ’70s, shortly before his popularity caused … Continue Reading…

The Universe is Dreaming Itself Awake

A friend of mine sent me an excellent article by Paul Levy. “When you begin to spiritually awaken, it is like waking up inside of a dream and recognizing that everything you are experiencing is nothing other than a very convincing projection, or display of your mind. The boundary between inner and outer, between dreaming and waking starts to dissolve, and you begin to realize that the same dreaming mind that is dreaming your dreams at night is dreaming your life. You realize that there is a Deeper Dreaming Self that is having a dream and we are it! This … Continue Reading…

What is real?

From a discussion about reality…. There is an important detail to understand. The deeper we go, the simpler the dynamics. Greater order and beauty. But as we move closer to pure consciousness, the details become less, boundaries become more generalized. In order for us to experience and thus understand these dynamics, we “personalize” it. We lay our conscious perspective onto consciousness. Kind of like anthropomorphizing. We express the underlying patterns in an as if dream form. Each of us thus perceive these underlying values uniquely. This is why we see the variation in different faiths of the world. One message … Continue Reading…

Time of the Sixth Sun

A film in post-production (?) on the current age and the many prophesies about it. Mayan, Hopi, etc – see the 2012 link for a list. Viewed as stages in the evolution of consciousness. timeofthesixthsun.com [this link is now broken] One can observe that research into the Mayan calendar now considers Oct of 2011 to be the actual “end date”. Also that traditional Hindu views of the Yugas place the change many thousands of years away, but other interpretations such as Yukteswars sees it in about 150 years. Nonetheless, it is quite apparent that change is underway in consciousness. Unprecedented … Continue Reading…

A New Earth

“Eckhart being a “local” author- a big article appeared today in the Van Sun, Sat Pg 4 on Eckhart and Oprah’s new class and her support of his book. Oprah recommended Eckhart Tolle’s book “A New Earth” as her book of the month and also is offering an on line class- 10 sessions with Eckhart. Millions of women and men will read his book and maybe start meditation or at least wake up to some spiritual awareness because of this.” http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=bb7e3d5b-1457-498f-81c3-46580c54325a Click “printer friendly” to get the whole article without ads.

global conscious awareness

Recently, a group of us was asked how we envision global conscious awareness… From my perspective, there is only one silent alertness. Much more than just global, or even Universal. It is everywhere, infusing everything. Yet is beyond any “thing”, beyond even the dream of God. You touch on the process. It begins within, with our own discovery of our transcendental nature, beyond the mind. With experience and allowing, we become that, that which we already are. We wake up to our true nature. Wake up from the dream of separateness. With time in that state, the silence moves out … Continue Reading…
