Soul Science Musings

Earlier this year I chanced upon very interesting information discovered by Lashlo Kortvelyessy -- his claim that Beam is the 5th state of matter  -- which makes sense to me from the Soul sciences perspective.  If curious have a look  http://www.5th-state-of-matter.info/5th-state.html  (will say more below).

I also learned that since only 0.01% is visible/atomic, most of the universe can't be mathematically explained.
Quantum Mechanics can explain certain aspects of reality but not the whole enchilada - because
quantum fields,  particles and space-time, are cognitive extensions of one's perceptual experiences.
Materialists mock  me (in cyber space) for stating that the First Principle (Spirit/Eros/Great Cosmic Power/Supreme Shakti)  and its Supramental Force has a  'built in'  evolutionary drive   (already active in the world).
 This is none other than what some of us call  Divine Energy   (underlying manifest existence).
'Normal' science is not capable of measuring the creator of this Energy.
 I have yet to read anywhere that Divine Bliss (energy) have been discovered  and measured/explained by  the eye of mind and its methods.
 Soul sciences and its (empirical)  Depth data - crossed referenced with the community of the adequate -  and  science and its empiricism,  are two completely different disciplines.
Materialists don't see this and  insist  we are delusional -- that what we say is "woo-woo" crap,  "the enemy of truth" -  in Richard Dawkins words.

Recently I saw and scribbled the following quote penned by Ken Wilber (which I second) and want to include in this post, because it makes perfect sense to me:

You either postulate a supernatural source of which there are two types. One is Platonic given and one is basically theological -- a God or intelligent design -- or you postulate Spirit as immanent, self-transcending drive within evolution itself. And then evolution is Spirit's own unfolding. Not in supranatural, but intra-natural, an immanently natural aspect. And that's basically the position I maintain. 

Now,  I will attempt to unpack in simple words why I think Lashlo's Beam in Matter discovery makes sense to me from the Soul sciences perspective. Its essence can be captured with this  phrase:
Atom's heart is ablaze with pure Spirit. . .It is all material and it is all transcendent / spiritual.

I always look to others (community of the adequate) for verification of my Depth's data and its contemplative conclusions. Today I want to include (again)  the following verse attributed to writer of The Dead Sea scrolls:

I have reached the inner vision through Thy Spirit in me
I have heard Thy Wondrous secret, through Thy mystic insight

Thou has caused a spring of knowledge to well within me
a fountain of power, pouring forth living waters
A flood of love and all embracing wisdom
Like the splendour of eternal light.


If that person was alive still, I would have liked to compare  notes with. . . I would like to confirm for her/him the validity of this claim by sharing how I came to know the 'splendour of...'  etc.. I would say,  I-Soul witnessed flowing out of my Crown chakra 'splendour of eternal light' into world's hologram via subtle planes (for the benefit of all beings, for the benefit of evolution of consciousness, documented in post titled:  The River of Light (May 2010).

Real or Fantasy-Constructions

I became active in one Facebook group -  and it has been  challenging.
Yesterday one member  insisted that what I share is nothing more but a delusional fantasy: In his words,  "nothing but stories that you tell yourself".
I assured him that what I share was never meant for him (and his pals)  to see. He made many nonsensical comments (with regard to my character).  In his last attempt to discredit me (yesterday) he posted (for me) link to an article about "new age bullshit".
He feels it is his duty to protect the membership from my "bullshit".  I get  why he does that, and told him so.
Today, I responded to his  indirectly  pointing finger in my direction,  the following accusation:
 We are free because there is no transcendent law (skip) But to protect ourselves from this insight we build various fantasy-construction of the ground of freedom (God, Nature, Consciousness, Being) as defensive mechanisms.

This is what I wrote in response:

Perchance, instead of the names you used (God, etc.) the term 'Lords Love' might be more palpable to someone like you?  St Catherine of Genoa - 15th century Christian mystic - described how she "received" in her heart "the wound of the unmeasured Love of God", which shook her very core of being. . .after which she exclaimed:   'O Love, can it be that thou has called me with so great a love, and made me know in one instant that which words cannot express?'
She is one among many other mystics who discovered within their innermost sanctuary (eternal self-Soul) that 'God is LOVE'. This type of experience is not hallucination. . .I know this because this happened to me.

Gopi Krishna - 20th century mystic and philosopher - described what happened to him:
     'It was in my thirty fourth year, seventeen years after starting meditation, that I had my first experience of transcendental consciousness. It was in the winter, about the time of Christmas. I was meditating early in the morning when suddenly I found something giving way as if a new aperture had opened, and I felt an energy rising up my spinal cord. At first I was terrified, and my attention went to the sensation caused by the energy.

*  I had same experience, minus being 'terrified'.

At that moment the vision ceased. Then I again concentrated, and ultimately I managed to keep my attention focused at the crown of my head, while the energy rose upward, through the spinal cord, to the neck and then into my head. I then suddenly found that a stream of silvery light was pouring into my brain. 

* I had similar 'silver light' experiences.

There was a sound like thunder or like a waterfall in my ear, and it grew louder and louder. At the same time, I began to expand.

*  I had same experience in 1994ish, and named it  Thundering Combustion Experience. It was a full-blown out of mortal body experience. I thought the force of this Energy would kill me which compelled me to utter "God be with me!"

I cannot describe exactly what I mean by this, but it seemed that my consciousness was now gaining a wider and wider space, and I was leaving my body behind and projecting myself, spreading myself, all around in the universe. My body grew dimmer and dimmer, and I could hardly hear any noises coming from the street. I remained totally engrossed in the vision that was now unfolding before me. It was the vision of a silvery luster, alive, living, vibrant with life, conscious and spread all around me. The small self that was "I" seemed to become like a point of awareness, watching this great personality that had now developed and seemed to encompass the whole universe.

* In my response-comment I didn't mention that the sensation of 'spreading everywhere' - in my case - felt like I was (literally)  endlessly flowing out of myself . One of those incredibly blissful sensation.

I was like a small cork floating in an ocean of consciousness, aware of the whole surface surface at every point of the compass. I felt myself expanding more and more, and this expansion was attended by a happiness that is not possible to describe.

*   Similar thing happened to me this is why I have been known to say "my chakra system/nervous system uncoiled to infinity".  I described this experience in Spirit Speaks in post titled "The River of Light - in May 2010?
Because of experience like this, we see the Many through the eyes of the One. It is because of these types of experiences I have the ability to give Shaktipat (transmission - which is trans-mental  experience of non-duality.
Example: During hands-on Energy balancing one student pleaded from that deep 'under' state "Hold me, I'm scared".  I asked why and she said "I'm so small".  After the session she told me she was terrified because she was  'just a speck in black vastness'.
When that happened to me first time, I (literally) felt a 'shift' sensation in my brain. . .the immensity of this CONSCIOUS INTELLIGENCE startled me, but by then I had even more 'scary' experiences, and was able to remain conscious.
The Tibetan Book of the Dead (translated by A.E. Thurman) has the following description of this 'blackness' (I named poetically The Womb of Creation).

In the seventh dissolution (death), the stage of imminence, the two drops meet at the heart and enclose the consciousness; one perceives the sky full of bright dark-light, or pure darkness, and then one looses consciousness.... 

*  This is also why I say I am (also) "A voyager into the soul" - Thurman's term for same as "psychonaut" - I like it! In his words description of what it signifies.

A "voyager into the soul," an apt term for the Buddhist adept, who voluntarily abandons the pseudo-security of this planet of delusion, with its solid ground of ordinary, individuated suffering, to launch herself through the death-dissolutions into the subtle between-states to deepen her wisdom by exploring the unconscious and to expand her compassionate heroism by serving universes of beings on the subtle level, and then returns to the ordinary embodiment of the adept to assist her contemporaries.

                                          *

May this be helpful as you journey into the depths of your being!  Be bold.

She is Solitary Revisited

 I wrote 'She is Solitary' about six months ago. When I looked at it today I could see it is  in need of  edit-makeover.  I like it when that happens!
 The subject I write about is very complex and no matter how hard  I  try, I'm hardly ever satisfied with the end result.  I  am driven by  'unwavering dedication to Truth above all else',  impulse.
 I care not one iota about how I appear to others -  and am the first to admit that self-mastery is a process. 

I never hid the fact I had unsolicited Kundalini Shakti awakening,  and for many years didn't make any  final assertions.
 When I started writing in this blog,  in the profile section I wrote (I was)  "Student of Life".
 Few years earlier,  I  wrote in website where spiritual types  congregated that  I was a "spiritual baby".   I  said this because I  meant it. I didn't know anyone who was talking about same type of Soul-journey and had no one living  for support, no one I could  'check results' with.
That changed once I discovered Aurobindo's work.

If interested to revisit She is Solitary?

Between Two Rages

In 1992 I wrote  article  titled: Between Two Rages - One Woman's Perspective on Abortion.  It didn't get published, and I figured it was 'too far out', even for a magazine whose title was New Dimensions.  Maybe if it was authored by a male, it would have been a different story?  Maybe not, because  months later  the magazine went bankrupt.

No matter - I'm just glad I have a photocopy of the original. . .Glad, because I can look back and see where my heart-mind was at the time.  Glad, I can show that true spiritual growth includes the dimension of caring for others.
Patience and heart-mind integrity play an important role in our Soul evolution. . . Based on personal experience, I see it takes great many years (if not lifetimes)  of including and integrating all aspects of  one's being . . .not just a knowledge of the mind but also of the heart and Soul.
One who surrenders to the Divine (within) relies on  Grace to help us patiently endure  years upon years of  continuous psycho-emotional demolition and construction (within one's interiority).  We feel the presence of  God's Grace, that's why we  trust we are 'in good hands'.

One who is curious  may find this snapshot of where I was at in 92'  interesting? (I will omit sentence here and there).

In the spirit of  Love and Truth I would like to offer my thoughts on this issue.  But first....(skip)
I believe I have lived in new consciousness for quite a few years now. I think the turning point was when I realized 8 years ago that the pseudo-reality  of the television world no longer represented and supported my world-view. I rejected the materialistic god years ago.

To me, the issue of abortion is as important as everything else that does nor support and sustains a healthy physically and spiritually the lives of all citizens of the world.
God, or the Spirit is that dimension of reality through which all life manifests itself. We all live within that awesome Intelligence. . .Everything is interconnected, but I wanted to know how that works. I needed some answers first.
I had to know why  half of all deaths of our species are due to starvation. Half a billion - mostly women and children - are chronically malnourished.
I needed to know, why nearly 90% of U.S. cropland is devoted to grow feed for livestock.
I had to know why there are millions of illiterate citizens in North America. Millions more suffer from psycho-emotional problems - severe enough to interfere with normal living. . .This list is much longer.

To me all this clearly points to the fact that the present stage of development does not present a healthy picture of ourselves.
I see the ignorance of our religions, cultural and social beliefs systems. I see the 'fruits' of the 'original sin' syndrome -- powerless and tainted species, where subjugation of women, pornography and its related sex crimes and sex addictions got their roots.
I see the lamentable results of the blindness stemming from the "man above nature" philosophy.
I see clearly the appalling sin of racism, the illness of alcoholism and substance abuse.
Life is too chaotic, too painful, too meaningless when one lives within the illusion this is all there is to life.  .  . Life void of spiritual reality.

When I look at the larger picture, a snap-shot of where we're at, the issue of abortion does not seem any more terrible than any other issue.
I see a reflection of our unresolved (karmic) personal, social and religious issues.
We have many lessons to learn. . .
In an ideal society, abortion would not be needed. But we do not live in an ideal world. Birth control does fail, women do get raped, mistakes are made, teens are sexually naive and so are many adults. At this time, I stand on the "choice" side. Some day this will become a non-issue.
The human family needs to find within ourselves the courage and look at the ugliness, and realize how our unconscious impulses have allowed us to participate in this (collective) mess.

I did it. . .and what a painful and solitary path that is. I learned that to know anything on an intellectual level only is meaningless - that's only half the story.  It's the heart/gut knowing that counts because its energy aims 'higher' . (skip)

I rejoice in knowing that I will never stop learning (evolving).
I can sometimes sense the vastness of Loving Intelligence that is patient and benevolent, and I like that.

Honoring Another Artist


I wish to share another Epic performance (in my native language).
 This one is titled   'Konie',  and  is performed  by Natalia Sikora.   I never heard and saw anything like it!
Natalia is also a very gifted stage actor,  this is why this performance is so deeply  unique.

'Konie'  means 'Horses' (phonetically sp.: 'black/charne konie'), which  symbolize extremely painful emotional inner turmoil and the desire to overcome it.

Honoring Artist

Time for a change of pace!

First time today I heard   Dimash Kudaibergen's voice -- artist from Kazakhstan -- and  am in awe!
This artist has  not only incredible vocal range, but also  emotional!

There is so much suffering in the world,  there is also room for beauty. . .
Today, I want to share  Dimash's  magnificent performance of  S.O.S. D'un Terrien en Detress.
It's in French. I Goggle-searched and found English translation.

Spiritual Evolution Beyond Nirvana

One who is interested in  Enlightenment grounded in multidimensional evolution and transcendence -- as revealed by the eternal self-Soul - will find the following excerpts interesting.  The meaning couched within these words  will  resonate with one who is committed to  developing their  spiritual intelligence.
In addition: I will add a reflection from the eternal self-Soul perspective that reaches beyond Nirvana.

These passages are from book penned by Ken Wilber, titled One Taste.

Well, anybody can say, 'All things are One,'  'All sentient beings posess Spirit,' 'All things are part of a great unified Web of  Life,' or 'Subject and object are nundual.' Anybody can say those things. The question is, do you directly and actually realize that? Are you speaking with any sort of awakened authority, or are these just words to you?
What if they are just words? What does it matter?
Well, spiritual realities involve not merely statements about the objective world, but also statements of  subjective facts, interior facts -- and for those statements to be true when they come out of your mouth, you must be directly in touch with those higher, interior facts, or else you are not being truthful, no matter how 'correct' the words might sound. It is the subjective state of the speaker, and not the content of the words, that determines the truth of the utterance. (...)

Most of my books are written about systems theory, Gaia, the Great Mother, ecopsychology, the new paradigm, and so on, are written with reference to the gross, waking state. You can easily tell  this because  they never mention any of the subtle realm phenomena -- nothing about the various meditative states, samadhis, interior illuminations, the extraordinary states of dream yoga, transcendental awareness, and so on. Nor do they mention the even higher states of causal formless. So when they claim to be 'holistic' and 'nondual,' they really aren't, not in the full sense. At best, they are at the level of nature mysticism, where consciousness is confined to union with the gross, waking state. This is fine as far as it goes, it just doesn't go very far. It is the shallowest of the spheres of mystical Oneness in the Great Nest of Spirit. (....)

So when somebody at the subtle level says 'All things are One,' they mean something different than when gross-level theorist says that. (...) Usually, when someone whose access consciousness is confined to the gross realm says 'All things are One,' they mean something like systems theory or ecopsychology -- they mean all empirical phenomena are aspects of a unified process. But when someone also has access to subtle-realm consciousness, they mean all empirical and all subtle phenomena are aspects of a unified process. This is much deeper and wider realization, which transcends and includes the gross realm.
So their consciousness is actually stronger.?
In a sense, yes. Their awareness does not blank out at the threshold of the dream state. Because of their own development and evolution of consciousness, they can remain 'awake' even as the dream arises -- or they can enter profound states of savikalpa samadhi and not go blank. And this 'strength'  of consciousness becomes even greater at the causal stage of development, because you reach a type of 'constant consciousness' or 'constant witnessing capacity,' which means you are 'awake' or conscious through all three major states -- waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. So consciousness becomes stronger and stronger, persisting through more and more changes of state, and this is reflected unmistakably in your life, your work, your theorizing, and so on. These signs are hard to miss. (...)

At the subtle stage you have access to a variety of forms of deity mysticism -- interior illuminations, nada, shabd, various samadhis or meditative states, saguna Brahman (Deity with Form), prayer of the heart, dream yoga, most of the bardo realms, and so on. This is the subtle realm of deity mysticism. Because the subtle-soul transcends but includes the gross-sensorimotor realm, at the level of deity mysticism you also have access to nature mysticism, so those are not exclusive. But the lower nature mystics tend to think you're nuts.
And the causal. . .
Is the home of formless mysticism -- pure Emptiness, the Abyss, the Unborn, ayn, nirdoh, nirvikalpa, jnana samadhi, classical Nirvana or cessation. This experience  (or 'nonexperience')  of cessation is unmistakable and indelible. And when somebody has directly experienced that state, and they are writing books spiritual books, believe me, they will write about that! And you will intuitively feel that they know what they're talking about. (....)

Once you push through causal formlessness -- which is the home of the pure Witness -- then the Witness itself collapses into everything that is witnessed through all three states. 

***

I do agree  that  what Ken Wilber describes is true, and/but need to add that,  Nirvana is not the last rung on the evolutionary ladder.
To truly understand what Soul-level Liberation means/is about, one has to be Initiated (on the Energy level)  to a much deeper  Mystery,  before one discovers what it means to be One with all beings in the visible and invisible domains, and what True Union of the Soul with the Essence of the Absolute Supreme,  means/is like.
Aurobidno's  words highlight  what needs to happen before one reaches this  (deeper) stage.

"By "void" is meant emptiness clear of all content except existence pure and simple. Without that one cannot realise the silent Brahman.  +   The silence still remains, but if you become full of force, light, Ananda, knowledge etc., you cannot call yourself blank any longer.

In addition: The following teaching 'on mechanism of descent' , is   something - as far as I know - no one else has written about.  Again,  I have no choice but say 'I bear witness to this, because this happened to me on the Soul level':

The Descent of Peace (Sat) the descent of Force of Power (Chit) the descent of Ananda, these are the four things that transform nature. It is not really the plane that descends, it is the Power and Truth of it that descends into the veil between the material and it no longer exists.  
+
Divine condition descends from above, is given by the Divine. (...) The higher spiritual planes create their own formulations in the subliminal in the depths within us. (but)  To know them, the Supermind must descend into us.

 * Aurobindo's qoutes from intyoga.online.fr

Thousands of years of cross-cultural support from contemplative mystics/scientists bear witness to the fact that Enlightenment is not 'personal' . . . it is for the benefit of all beings in the visible and invisible realms, for the benefit of evolution of consciousness itself.


* Edit-expanded note:

I have written  about  'Cosmic Tonglen Duty'  in various posts, this is why don't feel the need to  bring it up  constantly --  even though  this is the context within which much of what I write about  arises  (on the energy level).  So briefly - without going into details of the hows' and whys' of it -   I want to add the following reflection. . .

One cannot know what  the 'beyond nirvana' truly (literally) means, unless one's Soul-Force (Universal Body) is on 'Cosmic Tonglen Duty'.  This happens when one's nervous system (all chakras)  uncoils to infinity. . . this is why I don't expect  many folks to  embrace the meaning within the words I write with full acceptance.
Maybe, if I were a male,  it would have been a different story.

Then again:

This blog has visitors from South Korea, China, and other lands, and I marvel.  .   .
Blessings to one and all  brave souls that stop by here 💗
