How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man …
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
Bob Dylan, Blowing in the wind (1962)

I came upon a child of God walking down the road
I asked him, where are you going?
And this he told me …
we are stardust, we are golden,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden
Joni Mitchell, Woodstock (1969)

Don't you feel the day is coming, and it won't be too soon
When the people of the world can all live in one room
When we shake off the ancient,
shake off the ancient chains of our tomb
We will all be born again of the eternal womb.
Cat Stevens, Don't you feel a change a coming? (1971)

I listen to the wind, to the wind of my soul
Where I'll end up well I think,
Only God really knows
Cat Stevens, The Wind (1971)

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world…
You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us and the world will live as one.
John Lennon, Imagine (1971)

… can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
Robert Plant, Stairway to Heaven (1971)

… the mother and child reunion is only a motion away
Paul Simon, Mother and Child Reunion (1972)

the inevitable by-product : ego

it is going to take a while before 24/7 thoughtlessness establishes. before that, ego development between meditations and clearing would be inevitable. my quest and urge is how to minimize it? is there a resource to drain the ego frequently? our living Mother Earth is one resort. While we are sitting in the controlled and separated office environment, Mother Kundalini can take the attention to this and other ego-draining elements. The pure & primordial elements which have always existed can be a soap to the filth of ego.

may the ego subside! JSM

garfield tattwa

garfield, the lazy-crazy cat cartoon, is an excellent example of right and left side problem combination in humans. surely its based on the author's keen observation of people around him. the severe left vishuddhi problems he suffers through his food binges makes his organs lethargic. he is sly, jealous, short tempered, sarcastic... the whole laundry list of shadripus.

Now don't laugh at me when I say he has ADD. He is stuck to TV, cannot concentrate, waking up takes a huge toll on him. anxiety kills his effectiveness. right side issues develop as an outgrowth of left side problems. Aggression, sarcasm, greed, gluttony, violent trends, disrespect of authority... I can go on until someone throws bricks at me. but dont get me wrong here. i am just seeing my past in him, not you. he he.

red meat & cancers of the lower chakras

read meat seems to have induced excessive right sided heat up of lower chakras of those who consume it in the long term. a 50% increase in chances of colon cancer speaks volumes. Although I dont eat red meat, but a fellow yogi had commented on increased heat in the mooladhara after consumption of hamburgers. what are the further ramifications? if red meat affects the lower chakras then the sexual & reproductive health of individuals might also be effected, i havn't seen evidence in this regard yet.

The report appears in the Jan. 12 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Here is the MSN article that brought it up

dharma is sustainability. my fascination with sustainability started when taking a course in ecoManufacturing during my masters studies in IE and it triggered a seeking and introspection about sustainability in general matters of finance.

a-dharma, the lack of righteousness, would therefore be all actions which are not sustainable. this blossoms into such a profound explanation of all things attractive which lead us away from the spirit:

- Credit Cards & Loans: Unsustainable by all means. e.g. Vic wanted to satisfy my worldly desire of watching movies and I used a credit card to obtain a TV. It ended up making Vic less collective. If he had tried to be more creative about fulfilling his desires, then two things would have happened: (1) The desire would have been tested for purity, if unachievable collectively and (2) Would have given Mother more chances for furthering his realization via the creative fulfillment of the desire.

dharma & novice protection:

one of the biggest conflicts of seekers and newly reborn yogis is protection versus growth. while seeking one is more likely to throw caution to the wind and experiment with the soul. but after realization there comes an extreme, and sometimes irritating habit of thinking about protecting the self from negativity etc. This period is a part of a yogi's evolution. Going through it wasn't easy, but it was a relief when this part of establishment of self realization was validated by Shri Mataji in one of her talks.

auto-dharma & collectivity:

the evolving solution to the above problem is auto-selection of dharma by being collective. All unsustainable ideas from the ego would perish in the pure light of the collective (that hurts the ego initially) and all dharmic ones will work out in collective effort.

some examples of this come to the mind immediately:

Vic's & other dodo's impure ideas used to perish with regularity in collective, because of lack of establishment of own's self. Ideas which came from the heart got implemented even before they got expressed, which proved they were a part of the higher collective consciousness' workings: (1) Assistive Technology for Mother, (2) Russian speaking resource for Katya in Ann Arbor, (3) Advent of yoginis and yogis with a yearning for Sahaja culture in Ann Arbor etc.

in conclusion: torsion zone

dharma, spirit, collectivity, ascent and witnessing sometimes come together so beautifully. The distinction of these is only due to the stages in which they dominated in a particular case: spirit starts seeking dharma to participate in sustainabile growth only -> for this it becomes collective and the mind becomes a resceptacle for collective thoughts from the torsion zone-> collective working filters out the impure and unsustainable -> joy from the witnessing spirit fires up the soul in ascension.

Drew Rlzn, The Next Step in Love, Chronic Issues

Lets start with the good news. Baby Drew is now realized.

Felt this 1 year old's vibrations and they were nice. He is under the care of a yogini, so there is no doubt he might have had his Kundalini awakened spontaneously. But its always nice to have a double validation. He kept good company as we meditated after the realization process.

The not so good news is that the personal instrument is still under repair and construction. The love for Kundalini seems incomplete from the vantage point of respect.

Can love and respect be two different things? Maybe, because loving a person is one thing and respecting another. Love is you feel that person and is the first step in the yoga. That now seems to be somewhat in place with the ability to raise the Kundalini in conditions of humility. But the next step in ascent has become obvious this morning, that respect needs to be built. So I asked Her what could be respect? Amongst many protocols, the ones that have seemed to be chronic so far are (1) getting up at 4am, (2) Sleeping off by 10pm, (3) Losing bad fat (100% yogi votes, :)) (4) Eating healthy (5) Facilitate accessability of Kundalini awakening and sustenance, ie Sahaja Yoga. (5) Making contact with possible community rooms available in A2.

Welcome Wagon

living an honest attempt to be a sahaja yogi can be more interesting than a blockbuster. its a musical, an adventure, a mystery and finally fulfillment. why not blog it in witness? wishing vic the best of luck with this little endeavor. hope he does this right.
