Tales of Awakening
Date: Fri, 7 Jun 1996 02:23:01 -0700
Subject: A Short Biography
And, Thank you Richard for making this Mailing list possible.
My name is Jim Cook
Sex - Male
I am 48 years old. Born, Dec 16, 1947 in Boston, Mass.
I have five brothers and one sister. My father was in the military so we did a lot of traveling thruout the world.
I now live in Petaluma, Calif. with my five cats.
My hobbies are - Photography, Painting with oils and watercolors, Ceramics, Silk Screen, Organic Gardening.
I have been a member of The Self Realization Fellowship For five years now.
I became aware of my Kundalini awakening three years ago while doing "Raja Yoga" processes.
I have never experienced any bad manifistations from the Awakening.
I have experienced ,increased energy. Usually too much.
Better intuition. I can sometimes know a lot about about someone just by looking at them. This is not a continual gift though. It comes and goes.
I discovered that in order to know someone elses thought, I have to become that person.
Greater artistic abilities. Before the Awakening, I never had a talent for writing poetry or Haiku. Now I get inspirations almost everyday.
I've also become a vegetarian because, the smell at the meat department is too nauseating.
I've been given a lot more gifts which I will write about later.
Since I was twelve years old, I have always had an extreme interest in Zen Buddhism.
I read somewhere, a Zen Master once said, " There is a cave where a dragon lives. For one to become enlightend, one must enter the cave and get past the dragon".
For many years I wondered, what in the world does this mean ?
Now I know who the dragon is.
Bye for now,
Some caution is recommended when dealing with Kundalini.
