Spirals

SPIRALS IN TIME.



Spirals in time are swirls that meet,

And Back again to the center,

Visiting, loving, karmic fabric tears,

Waves that rise and fall but one,

Seas and oceans all but water,

Attachment to a ring is sorrow,

As the spiral moves around again,

The joy is spiral returns and turn,

As the mind the rungs do climb,

The moving rungs help by turning,

Until the spiral becomes Bliss,

Where dog and man human/animal,

Are just bubbles on an ocean of Love,

Rings of the spiral are named,

Rums, Brodi, Buds et al.

Similarities in ritual between Catholicism.Eastern Orthodox and Hinduism...

1. Guru/Mukta Worship....Jesus. Meditations...
2. Mother Goddess Worship....Mary.
3. Deva devotion......Saint devotion.
4. Devas with specific tasks.........Saints with specific tasks.
5. Vibhuti..............Ash- As in ashes to ashes ....dust to dust...( The triumph of Palm Sunday was turned to ash very soon, hence the palms burnt to ash.,
6. Incense/candles .represent the rise of prayer and devotion.......Hindu.same thing.
7. Holy Water............Hindu Tirtha and Holy waters,.
8. Holy Communion...........Hindu prasad and vibhuti.
9. Guru's birth and death........Hindu same...
10. Veneration of Mother of Guru....Hindu ..same.
11. Use of ancient language Latin....Hindu...Sanskrit.
12. Turn the other cheek........Hindu ..Ahimsa...
13. Rosary and rosary beads to the Mother Mary....Hindu same thing Japa and japamala..
14. Mystic Union and ecstasies..........Hindu....Various Samadhis.
15.Offerings on the Altar.........Hindu..same thing.
16.The Law of God is perfect.....Hindu...karma.
17. Priests and assistants...........Hindu ....Priests and Pundits.
18. Certain orders of nuns and monks, anchorites...........Hindu...Sannyasins...and sadhus.
19. Well know mystics like Theresa and St John..Hindu...Yogis and Jnanis.
20. Works of mercy..............Hindu...Karma Yoga.
21. Baptism and confirmations....Hindu...initiations and baptisms.
22. Dualistic but part of God.....Hindu ...Visishtadvaita....
23. Novenas and days long devotions and rosaries...........Akhanda Bhajans...Nava.
24. Belief in survival of the body and subtle planes....Hindu...similar.
25. Purified spiritual body............Hindu purified vijnanamayakosa...

This is just some that spring to my mind. Once you get to the Sermon on the Mount, the Gospel of Thomas then it is really Vedantic.
Reincarnation is referred to by Jesus and Apostles in several places......but not overtly taught...
There are a lot of similarities indicating an Vedantic, Mystery and Buddhistic influence.
Revelations--- by St John is a description in a mystical way of the rise of Kundalini and the seven churches are the seven cakras. Descent of Holy Spirit is Kundalini...

In fact but for the belief in the exclusivity of Jesus as a Karana Janma,,,it could fit into Hinduism very easily.........

Fear and ego..

Fear and ego..

We don't want to be free from fear. All that we want to do is to play games with it and talk about freeing ourselves from fear." U.G. Krishnamurthi.

This quote covers a lot of ground..the ego itself is expanded out of the defence reaction response of animals...Otherwise how would they know that it is they under attack....This response is taken by the potentiality in the mind and expanded into the great Ego or Ahamkara we know today...So fear is part of this response....and thus tied inexorably to the ego...People love fear in a way, as it expands the ego and makes it feel alive....I must exist look what is happening to me , I am really alive..Young teens and others like to go to Horror and Vampire movies as it scares them...They like to tell ghost stories at camp and sleep overs as it scares them but without the attendant danger of real attack....It is all about the ego....a person with little or no ego ususally has little or no fear....and a Mukta has no fear at all...As what is there to be afraid of? Fear is magnified by the imaginary ego to reinforce the feeling of Aham or the small aham ego.....We love fear as we love our ego.................

Grace

IMO..Grace is Brahman, Grace is The Self, Grace is the I Am consciousness.....Where the Self is reflected. Bhakti Devotion and Sadhana creates energy which burns up or fries the vasanas, so they cannot sprout.. A Guru can do this with Diksha or projected energy, for both the Jnani or Bhakta alike. Self Enquiry and sadhana of a sadhaka on the path of Jnana removes the vasanas or fries them. 'I Am' consciousness is the Pond reflecting The Self...Vasanas are the scum on the surface impeding this reflection of The Grace..So The Self Helps those that Helps themselves...Only a Mukta Guru or our own Sadhana creates the Grace...The Self as ever is the Sakshin or witness...The amount of Grace we receive is in proportion to the amount of progress we make in removing vasanas....all part of Prarabda Karma really.....Love Tony.

दीक्षा 2Diksha and the Siddha.

Diksha and the Siddha..When I think back on this many years ago...I believe it was some kind of initiation or diksha...as the result is still with me..The yogi may have been out of body or what...It doesn't matter he used the diksha of touch, as he told me to touch him.......so apparently he was a Mukta...----with regard to the incident with the yogi in my room.4 hours ago clear

Dimension Travel with old Yogi...Diksha

Dimension Travel with old Yogi....One time on an ashram in India I was lying on my mattress peacefully, July 1989.just looking at a picture on the door, when an old balding yogi (astral?), in a shabby brown robe came into the room, or appeared rather. I wondered why he was in a brown ragged robe instead of orange. I thought maybe he was a Buddhist or perhaps not. He told me to tap him on the shoulder and he pointed where, on his back, on the right hand side. As soon as I did that I went up through all the dimensions of form and mishapen beings and just coloured energy until my mind blanked out and went beyond experience...I then came around lying in the same position on my mattress and realised that this was some kind of Diksha or initiation. I could do it at will thereafter and eventually just went direct to NirVikalpa Samadhi, as i had been doing something similar in a haphazard fashion prior to this....or the preparation thereof rather. I finally figured out that he was a Siddha and the fact that I was on an ashram in India made it all more appropriate and occasion for this Diksha... .............Tony.
