Those eyes! whew! > > cheers Peter, That was a consciousness dream and you were asked why if what you want is enlightenment, why are you not committed to your meditation and silence. You were shown that mediation will make your life come together so that you can go on in a normal fashion but in a detached state of being. The bottom line in spiritual awakening is fruit, one must have commitment, discipline, and detachment to produce spiritual fruit. Does this fit with what was coming to you?

There is much that can be passed in sharing and communicating providing the group become connected spiritually and moving in the same direction.

I probably wont be able to go to anyone other and in Santa Cruz, Ca. But thats O.K. Whats best for the group counts. Royale 5 Date: Mon, 04 Nov 1996 From: George Mynatt Subject: A lurker posts Hello all, - I have been reading and enjoying (for the most part) posts to this list for about two months. Although I have written a private reply to several people, I've never posted to the list itself. I first became interested in Kundalini when seeking a way of meditation that did something other than just put me to sleep. I've taken Hatha yoga lessons in the past and its constant emphasis on relaxation works just too well for me, it only put me to sleep. I also tried Transcendental Meditation in its heyday many years ago and only experienced the need for a nap. The aspect of Kundalini that most intrigues me is the idea of using it as a means of furthering human evolution. I believe strongly in the maxim that a person normally uses only 10% of their brain and hope Kundalini will help me along the way to increase that percentage. Also, from reading various novels, I guess there is a lot more in the human DNA sequence that can be related directly to any attribute. Researchers sometimes refer to this (at least in fiction, sorry I'm really not very knowledgable about this) as junk DNA. I think the 10% maxim applies to all that a person can be and do; and this "junk" DNA, if it is utilized (activated, empowered), would enable humans to go beyond anything that can hardly be imagined today. Anyway, to address a frequent poster to the list: Daniel Rusch-Fischer wrote re his "itchy brain, crop circles": deposited a sunburst of energy and flicked it like a top to set it spinning wildly; Dan, Which way did you send it spinning? I imagine it spins in the horizontal plane, but if viewed from above the head is it spinning clockwise or counter clockwise? - And, for those of you more knowledgeable about Kundalini than me, what implications would the direction have? I think this is important since K energy is associated with a coiled serpent. As the K energy flows or is awakened, which way is the serpent unwinding? Is direction important? Do those of you who feel their K is active experience a sense of direction? Thanks.

Probably because I am right-handed. I have heard it said that chakras should spin clockwise (but is that my clockwise or someone looking at my chakras clockwise?). Made me think about handedness and how southpaws get abused by the tyranny of the majority - does this extend even to spirituality? A U.S. acquaintance attended ToDai (Tokyo Univerity Tokyo Daigaku) for graduate school and was forced to use her right hand to take notes, etc. The Japanese don't even tolerate individuality in that respect - needless to say, she has little respect for their society because of this. Does the direction perceived have any importance - dunno, any southpaws out there who can give a different 'spin' on this? DAN-RF - 7 Date: Mon, 4 Nov 1996 From: fluteATNOSPAMprodigy.com (CAROLYN MALONEY) Subject: Re: channelling. Rjills, Where do you live???. What happened is, I was leading my meditation group in the Earth Mother center and someone touched me.. then I felt a presence. In the middle of this meditation, I welcomed all the guides and sages. I am empathic, and the face seemed to appear over mine so I felt for the identity. Then I felt eyes larger than mine, high cheekbones.. Large eyebrows and a crooked smile.. The presence followed me home and was with me for a few days.. I found myself saying incredible things.. then I asked him to go back to the shop so that I could get back into the earthly world. Every now and again it happens again.. but not as strongly. The next day after I wasn't so spacy, I decided to dash over to Earth Mother at lunchtime and see if I could find Mona and tell her all about it. I set the time in my mind to leave the office at 20 minutes until 1:00. Then when 12:30 came I thought, "I really don't have time" and was going to let it pass. At precisely 20 minutes until 1:00 the entire Data Processing building had a black out.. No electricity anywhere.. laughing.. I said.. Ok OK.. Im going.. I was gone past my hour lunch time.. however the electricity didn't come back on until minutes before I walked in the door.. No one was sure how long I was gone.. It was totally amazing!! While I was at the shop.. I told Mona what had happened.. I told her I had no idea who this person was but I had called him Mokihana (a hawaiian flower used as a lei- Moki means Moses) She smiled really big and said.. Let me show you a picture.. and she pulled a book called Autobiography of a Yoga off the shelf, and turned to a page of Sri Yuteswar.. and I said.. "Well sorta but the face had a crooked smile".. Mona turned to another page where Sri Yuteswar was standing next to another person.. There was a crooked smile on his face and a flower lei around his neck. She said he wore flowers around his neck all the time. and So I began reading about the Yogi. Mona said that he told her many years ago to build the shop for a place where people could gather. flute, Carolyn Maloney Reiki Master Earth Mother San Antonio, Texas 8 Date: Tue, 5 Nov 1996 From: stampmanATNOSPAMix.netcom.com (Daniel Rusch-Fischer ) Subject: ^origamiHaikuKoan http://kiku.stanford.edu/KIDS/SCHOOL/ART/ origami/kids_origami_crane1.html ...................................................................

Also the Clockwise is that you are the clock! Respectfully, Al Perhacs - 10 Date: Tue, 5 Nov 1996 From: LwMema3ATNOSPAMaol.com Subject: Re: WoW!!! Reply Welcome to the list, As I have heard others say, I too must remind myself of what I am doing, and that forcing will not bring something to happen. I have had a few experiences which show me that I am on the right path and that with time I will continue to evolve and grow. I believe this to be true for all of us, even if it is difficult to be patient. I enjoyed reading about your experience with your son's toy and your guide. Tresure that experience and the others like it as you continue to grow. It makes us more aware of the wonderous occurring going on if we just take the time to listen and be aware. :D I have said my two cewnts, I will leave it at that, once again, Welcome!!!!! - In Light and Love, Lori 11 Date: Tue, 5 Nov 1996 From: Juliet Subject: VOTE!
