Global Enlightenment: Comfortably Bathing in Cosmic Life

One of my favorite experiences is a visit to a mineral hot springs, or barring that a dip in a Jacuzzi tub, jets full on. So relaxing, and always accompanied by some purification – the warm water soothing my skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and internal organs – opening meridians or energy channels in the body,Continue reading “Global Enlightenment: Comfortably Bathing in Cosmic Life”

Stamina and Intention: Creating a Symbiotic Environment for Living Brahman

This one takes some doing. 🙂 Because Brahman, Totality, consists of Totality inside and out, a suitable place for living Brahman is an agreement between us, whatever our personality looks like, and our environment. Living Brahman, the relationship of us to our environment is instantaneously symbiotic, effects are seen much faster than the sluggish speedContinue reading “Stamina and Intention: Creating a Symbiotic Environment for Living Brahman”

A New Resident, the Golden Eagle

After the Camp Fire in November 2018 our landscape changed, with fewer live tall trees and a shift in the bird population, adding several species I hadn’t seen here before. Our most prized new arrival is a golden eagle, seen hunting in the canyon and also perched in the burned pine tree in our lowerContinue reading “A New Resident, the Golden Eagle”

Winged Victory Global Update for May 14th, 2020

Living Deathlessly, Living Brahman

Even living Cosmic life, the life that sustains and orders the galaxies, the far shorter span of our human life must also be considered. Sort of an understatement really, as this is our current vehicle for evolution, essential for anything we must learn and accomplish. What does it mean to live deathlessly? It means livingContinue reading “Living Deathlessly, Living Brahman”

Free Will and God, the Abiding Paradox of Brahman

Everyone goes through the same process, first learning the difference between life supporting action and it’s opposite. Then, making a choice of which to favor. Life supporting thoughts and action lead steadily to a closer relationship with Divinity, with God. But this is not a matter of blind obedience or heedless faith. Surrendering to MotherContinue reading “Free Will and God, the Abiding Paradox of Brahman”

Who Is ‘fleetwoodmacncheese77’?

After writing under a pseudonym taken from a defunct forum I started several years ago, I have decided to start using my birth name, James Leland Flanegin, on this blog. I go by Jim. I am named after my great-grandfather, James Jr. (1824-1912), a Civil War soldier, and his son (my grandfather), Leland (1870-1959), anContinue reading “Who Is ‘fleetwoodmacncheese77’?”

Butte Canyon and the Sutter Buttes Today

I haven’t really been off the property in weeks, so I really wanted to go into the “big city” down the hill (Chico, population 100,000) and get a take-out breakfast. It is a ten mile drive, and along the way is an overlook for Butte Canyon. Not in any hurry today, I stopped and tookContinue reading “Butte Canyon and the Sutter Buttes Today”

Two Different Perspectives: Divinity and Humanity

Divinity is a place composed of light, where the universal guidance counselors and architects of our world reside. A place of enlightened thought, feeling, and manifestation. A residence of dynamic perfection, ever guided by Cosmic Dharma. These are souls grounded in service to Mother Divine, the source of the source as She is known. AllContinue reading “Two Different Perspectives: Divinity and Humanity”

Karmic Resolution; Fighting a War Without an Enemy

I have always appreciated my Transcendental Meditation* or TM practice, for its suitability for an active life. *not a sales pitch, just my long-term personal preference and experience – Thanks 🙂 Twenty minutes twice a day; something sustainable for a lifetime. Of course any organization offering a product or service wants the consumer to purchaseContinue reading “Karmic Resolution; Fighting a War Without an Enemy”

Serving the Highest First, Living Brahman

Living Brahman the compass always points East towards the rising sun, Surya. Sri Brahmananda Saraswati remains always available, always established in the foundation of primordial cosmic Silence. The Divine Host serves every desire. The heart rests in purity – the tender pink and promising glow of the coming dawn, and the crown ever shines cleanContinue reading “Serving the Highest First, Living Brahman”

Living the Future, Living Brahman

Living Brahman we are organized to live timelessly, less wear and tear. Healthy mental and physical habits, fewer desires, not out of restraint but from balance, and a harmless karma that even translates to one’s physical possessions, weird as that seems… Life is mostly gentle, even, and long lasting. The most powerful driver for thisContinue reading “Living the Future, Living Brahman”

Manifesting Our Fears – “Invaders From Outer Space”

Fear is our response to an influence or influences in which we have neither trust, control, or confidence. This fear shows up in our collective artistic expression and social entertainment as a series of tests, both for ourselves individually, and for the planet as a whole. So many of our TV shows and movies areContinue reading “Manifesting Our Fears – “Invaders From Outer Space””

Man on the ‘Mune: Earning My Sidhis in Rural Missouri, 1979-80

…I applied for the job and was hired. I was 25 years old. The deal was to work and live on-site for a year, building a facility for in-residence courses, and farming strawberries to bring in additional income. The official name was ‘The Kansas City Capitals Project’, or KCCP. In exchange, after six months ofContinue reading “Man on the ‘Mune: Earning My Sidhis in Rural Missouri, 1979-80”

Business As Usual While Living Brahman

World events, or even local events, do not set the narrative or agenda for our lives while living Brahman. At the same time, choosing engagement in any aspect of life is total and complete, played out according to Cosmic life, Infinite life. There are no aspects of human life which can eclipse Totality or Brahman.Continue reading “Business As Usual While Living Brahman”

Surinamese Memoir: Visiting Kourou, Cayenne, and Devil’s Island

I enjoyed Paramaribo (the capital of Surinam), a very laid-back place, during my visit around the time Richard Nixon resigned his presidency, in August of 1974. I had recently turned 20. Dad was serving there as US Consul-General, prior to, and during the transition of Surinam, a former Dutch colony, to it’s full independence. DadContinue reading “Surinamese Memoir: Visiting Kourou, Cayenne, and Devil’s Island”

Living Brahman Brings Global Balance

The hallmark of Unity Consciousness, the highest attainment and development of the Self, is to perceive the world as one’s Self. Universality, Oneness, Unity. We see the universal nature of ourselves reflected in our Reality. However, much as a planet introduces a gravitational bend into open space, so does a subtle distortion occur in UnityContinue reading “Living Brahman Brings Global Balance”

Brahman and Living in Accord with Cosmic Law

Living in accord with Cosmic Law means always choosing good, the least harmful option in every case. As the Cosmos is vast, this cannot be accomplished intellectually, aside from the simple choices we make to avoid the most egregious criminal activity. Most of us are not making consciously bad choices in life, and still theContinue reading “Brahman and Living in Accord with Cosmic Law”

The Mandala of Brahman; Living Past, Present, and Future Success

Living Brahman can be seen and experienced as an ever expanding mandala of Totality. It can then be viewed in two different ways: Initially, the mandala of Totality viewed head-on represents now, the present, and all the richness available to us, emanating from a single source, Mother Divine. This is the creation of space. Next,Continue reading “The Mandala of Brahman; Living Past, Present, and Future Success”

The Path to Brahman: Internship for Cosmic Life

Brahman is all about action. Action in liberation, innocence, and freedom. Just as doctors must go through a rigorous internship, on-site, with little sleep, working on the front lines of peoples’ lives, so do those who live Brahman also go through an internship. A doctor does this to ingrain their medical skills and knowledge, soContinue reading “The Path to Brahman: Internship for Cosmic Life”

Philippine Memoir: Exploring Luzon

”…The climate in Manila was actually hotter than Indonesia, and quite a bit more humid. Just as the sun cracked the horizon, you could feel the strong heat on your skin. As in Indonesia, there were just two seasons, the (hot) dry season, and the (not quite as hot) rainy season, or monsoon. We wouldContinue reading “Philippine Memoir: Exploring Luzon”

Brahman and Building a Reservoir of Silence Within

The culturing and establishment of cosmic Silence, our universal potential accessible within, is a relatively new idea, particularly in the West. With the individualistic paradigm always underpinning our social context, it can be difficult to simply surrender to the growth of consciousness, awareness within, as has been done for generations in India, for example. ThisContinue reading “Brahman and Building a Reservoir of Silence Within”

Indonesian Memoir: Monkeys, Bali, and the Cold War

“…During that trip to Borobudur, we were driving along a forest road again in central Java, and began seeing monkeys swinging in the trees on both sides of the car. We stopped and put bananas on the roof of the car, and rolled up the windows. Soon the monkeys were swarming the car, eating theContinue reading “Indonesian Memoir: Monkeys, Bali, and the Cold War”

Brahman and Surrender

Brahman is surrender, and Brahman is also abiding paradox. Brahman surrenders Totality and all aspects of Totality. However this is not the simple release of relative life we feel when we wake up to our universal and infinite nature. We retain our responsibility for completion, even as we surrender ourselves in Brahman. Life is oursContinue reading “Brahman and Surrender”

The Cottage Near Bogor, Indonesia

From 1959 to 1964, I lived with my family in Djakarta (Jakarta), Indonesia, in a white house with a red tile roof, and a flame tree in the front yard. I was there from the time I was five, until we were evacuated back to the US during a serious rebellion, at the age ofContinue reading “The Cottage Near Bogor, Indonesia”

Life in Djakarta, Indonesia, 1959 to 1964 (an excerpt)

In 1959 when I was five years old, we moved from Spain to Djakarta (now Jakarta), Indonesia, as a continuation of my father’s career as a Foreign Service Officer in the US Diplomatic Corps, US Department of State. The picture accompanying this post is a painting of a puja ceremony held on Bali. This paintingContinue reading “Life in Djakarta, Indonesia, 1959 to 1964 (an excerpt)”

Quotes from Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev

I woke up this morning thinking about Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev, and my long association with Him. Going on-line I found some of His quotes (below) which really ‘speak’ to me. The whole experience is a treasured one, to learn about Reality from someone so wise, compassionate and powerful. One thing I had toContinue reading “Quotes from Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev”

Nance Canyon Near Paradise, California

I was up early today and decided to take a walk down the hill behind the house. The pond is there, but I went south instead, following Nance Canyon. A lot of area yet to explore. After returning I went over to the pond and was happy to see the Canada goose that has takenContinue reading “Nance Canyon Near Paradise, California”

Brahman and Immortality

Immortality is not the desire to live forever, fulfilled. It is deeper than that, transcending any desire. Simply put, the ability to live an unlimited life is a profound symptom of purification. Purification means no contamination or disease; perfect mental and physical health. This immortality is also not a static situation. It is the reversalContinue reading “Brahman and Immortality”

‘Temple Dog’ – A Musical Exploration from 2009 to 2018

Having been a visual artist all my life and a music lover, technology finally bridged the gap for me, having never learned to play an instrument or read music (those guitar lessons at 13 don’t really count). The result was being able to compose and publish ten albums under the name, ‘Temple Dog’ (not ‘TempleContinue reading “‘Temple Dog’ – A Musical Exploration from 2009 to 2018”

Brahman and “The Final Stress” – In My Case, Birth

What is stress? It is anything that distorts our ability to live a cosmic life. It can be from present, or past factors. These are referred to as karma, the result of past actions. Throw Quantum Entanglement into the mix, and it is easy to see the results of karma as unfathomable. Nonetheless, with enoughContinue reading “Brahman and “The Final Stress” – In My Case, Birth”

Brahman, Quantum Mechanics, and Global Events – Part Two

As a follow up to my first post on this subject, a new article emerged from my news feed, complimenting and expanding on the reality of classical and Quantum Mechanical physics operating alongside one another. This second article explores the ramifications of the density of events calculated in the first (10 to the power ofContinue reading “Brahman, Quantum Mechanics, and Global Events – Part Two”

Source Code for Enlightenment

“Wake Up. Kick Ass. Be Kind. Repeat.” A sign in a shop window impossible to ignore. 🙂 Enlightenment, or the increasing ability we gain to live in synchronicity with the Cosmos, Mother Divine’s Grand Creation, is clearly the purpose of life, inside and out. Once we have woken up to our cosmic nature, the eternalContinue reading “Source Code for Enlightenment”

Brahman, Quantum Entanglement, and Global Events

Yesterday, I came across an article in Scientific American – ‘Space: The Final Illusion’, by Lee Smolin – wherein the author was attempting to align space-time, limited to causality within a localized space and the speed of light, with the reality of quantum entanglement, or the ability of two objects to react to each otherContinue reading “Brahman, Quantum Entanglement, and Global Events”

An Artist’s View

I took this picture this morning, and it got me thinking about what I do as an artist, when wearing that particular chapeau. And that is it, to find and express images of God that are instantly recognizable as such, through artistic or photographic means, or to create the sounds of God that can beContinue reading “An Artist’s View”

Reincarnation and 'De-incarnation'; Perfect Processes of Cosmic Law

Just as we graduate, or not, from school, so goes our spiritual evolution, taking on increasing challenges to further our intimate relationship with Mother Divine. The mechanism for this is called reincarnation, to ensure we have a line of temporary vehicles to inhabit in order to experience the fulfillment of spiritual life; cosmic life. ThisContinue reading “Reincarnation and 'De-incarnation'; Perfect Processes of Cosmic Law”

Doing The Impossible By Living Brahman

Here are several quotes from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation: “We have been impossible right from the beginning and we must continue to be impossible because we are raising a voice against suffering which has been considered to be the nature of life. It is our joy to be considered impossible –Continue reading “Doing The Impossible By Living Brahman”

The Body Living Brahman

Much emphasis is placed on maintaining and enhancing our physical bodies, even by those of us pursuing spiritual development. This is natural enough, though can lead innocently to a coarser, materially oriented way of seeing ourselves and the world. The common paradigms that guide our bodies’ care and feeding are outmoded, driven by our pastContinue reading “The Body Living Brahman”

Living a Calm Life; Living Brahman

This may seem an incongruous title for a post, given the whirlwind of activity, assumptions, and illusions present in the world today. But it is completely accurate. One significant disruption to calm, is fear of the unknown, seen as a given for most of us. But there is no unknown in cosmic life, living Brahman.Continue reading “Living a Calm Life; Living Brahman”

My conversations in Amsterdam coffee houses, living Brahman

Although the coffee houses in Amsterdam all sell good coffee drinks, it is common knowledge that they also provide cannabis products, and a place to smoke. With just a few exceptions, no alcohol is sold or allowed in the coffee shops, and tobacco use is always prohibited. It makes for a relaxed social environment, aContinue reading “My conversations in Amsterdam coffee houses, living Brahman”

The Challenge of Brahman, Living Totality

Much has been written through scripture and the latest wave of spiritual interest about the light we ignite within ourselves; our enlightenment to varying degrees. As previously noted, Brahman IS Enlightenment – all the marbles. Everything else is practice – sacred practice. What Brahman means is knowing and operating efficiently, successfully, in the face ofContinue reading “The Challenge of Brahman, Living Totality”

My Twenty Five Years with Guru Dev, Sri Brahmananda Saraswati

A couple of previous posts have introduced my relationship with Guru Dev – How He appeared to me fully in the spring of 1993, in the midst of my whirlwind householder’s life. First, let me explain that Guru Dev dropped His earthly body on May 20th, 1953, just over a year before I was born.Continue reading “My Twenty Five Years with Guru Dev, Sri Brahmananda Saraswati”

Living Brahman Brings Protection for Global Desires

As we work through life, in addition to the basics of food, shelter, and love, in order to thrive, we need both safety, and freedom from fear. Brahman fulfills all of these requirements, whatever our culture or way of life, by transforming ourselves from the human body/mind to simply a Cosmic perspective, a Totality. ThroughContinue reading “Living Brahman Brings Protection for Global Desires”

Life as an Empath Living Brahman

The intersection of being an intuitive empath and living Brahman is a very interesting one. A good definition of an empath is one who experiences the world as themselves, not by virtue of development of consciousness, but because they have no filter between themselves and the senses and thoughts of others, including plants and animals.Continue reading “Life as an Empath Living Brahman”

Outrunning Time and Space by Living Brahman

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi often spoke about changing the trends of time through the global practice of TM, specifically aimed at the achievement of World Peace. TM, or Transcendental Meditation, leads to the establishment of Being, the deep and permanent connection to our Infinite nature. This soothes the environment inside and out. We gain the supportContinue reading “Outrunning Time and Space by Living Brahman”

Sri Ramana Maharishi and Living Brahman

Here are some selected quotes I came across recently from a great Indian Saint, Sri Ramana Maharishi (1879 to 1950). I don’t know much about Him, though His status living Brahman is obvious. I especially enjoy His practical advice for life, summarized in the two quotes below: “You need not aspire for or get anyContinue reading “Sri Ramana Maharishi and Living Brahman”

Winged Victory Global Update for January 12th, 2020

Many thanks for the continued and growing interest in these descriptions of Brahman, Totality, Full Enlightenment, as brought to us by the knowledge and dedication of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Sri Brahmananda Saraswati. Today is Maharishi’s birthday, and He always celebrated a perspective of Brahman for the coming year. I remember most clearly 1978, whenContinue reading “Winged Victory Global Update for January 12th, 2020”

Living Brahman, Surrendering to What Is

We all surrender to our reality, no matter what it is. Without thinking much about it, over time the sense of self, the ego, has enjoined with the mind to create a complex story of identity, made up of what works, and what doesn’t. Very rarely does this superficial approach lead to complete joy. SoContinue reading “Living Brahman, Surrendering to What Is”

The Purpose of Brahman, Making Divinity Noticeable

The mind is a very curious machine, a concentrated and loosely organized clearing house for thoughts, taking inputs from all of the senses and the heart. Each thought and feeling has its chance in the mind – to be noticed, appreciated, and perhaps taken to a further step towards action. This happens whether the mindContinue reading “The Purpose of Brahman, Making Divinity Noticeable”

Brahman and the Choice to Do Good

First off, doing good for ourselves and others is not a choice living Brahman. However, how is this even possible, doing good, with all the choices made on a daily basis, big and small? Depth, clarity, and experience solve the problem – all ways. Living Brahman, we continuously have access to the three worlds, andContinue reading “Brahman and the Choice to Do Good”

Brahman and World Peace

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, spoke often of the “Laws of Nature”, the invisible dynamics of karma, creation, and dharma, enveloped within the rising and falling Yugas; the massive tides of Cosmic consciousness. We are in such an upswing of Cosmic consciousness now. We are moving towards a more peaceful world. EvenContinue reading “Brahman and World Peace”

Computer Technology and Brahman

Computer technologies, multiplying our abilities and extending our senses, are now critical to our safety, health, longevity, prosperity, and sense of connection to ourselves and each other. By providing so many avenues for fulfillment, computers also create a faster, larger world for all of us, without any secrets or boundaries. Our responsibility as global citizensContinue reading “Computer Technology and Brahman”

Full Enlightenment, Brahman – Like an Extra Scoop of Ice Cream for God

Everyone likes ice cream, and for the fussy ones vegan options are available. But what is the connection between dessert, and God? The all-powerful, omniscient, omnipresent God is the immanence of the Divine in our world, and could be included in any relationship we form. If we form a kind, loving and helpful relationship withContinue reading “Full Enlightenment, Brahman – Like an Extra Scoop of Ice Cream for God”

How Is a Seamless Relationship with Divinity Established?

The first step is the recognition and acceptance of Divinity, the Heavenly Host – the Infinite world of Sattvic Beings who are here to guide and support us as servants of Mother Divine, always working on the principle that the more we give of ourselves, the more we receive. This speaks to the Cosmic LawContinue reading “How Is a Seamless Relationship with Divinity Established?”

How Living Brahman Brings Redemption to the Earth

Redemption is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as, “the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil.” Sin and its egocentric cousin evil are actions against Totality, Brahman. Brahman is by definition sinless; you can’t get there from here. An earlier post addresses this in detail (“How and Why Does BrahmanContinue reading “How Living Brahman Brings Redemption to the Earth”

Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards All

As half the earth enters the Silence of winter, we move inward. The fortunate among us also move indoors, to safety, comfort and warmth. Kindly be aware of those who cannot, those left in the cold. Don’t be taken in by those who tell us the poor are lazy, the homeless are violent, and theContinue reading “Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards All”

Brahman and the Elimination of Shadows

By the time Brahman is lived, the identity is no longer able to form attachments to anything but truth and Reality. Nothing else is capable of existing in the environment of Brahman. There are a few reasons for this: The physiology is purified to a high degree, in terms of strength, flexibility, and refinement. TheContinue reading “Brahman and the Elimination of Shadows”

What Is the Relationship Between Enlightenment and Brahman?

Brahman IS Enlightenment. Everything else is getting there. 🙂 Once Brahman is lived, the reality contains everything else. It is Totality. This includes all perceptions and all abilities. The question often arises – What about the sutras taught during the TM-Sidhis course, the personal focus, the mapping of the nervous system to the Cosmos? ExamplesContinue reading “What Is the Relationship Between Enlightenment and Brahman?”

How and Why Does Brahman Live a Sinless Life?

Let’s get the big question out of the way – What is sin? Sin is action against Totality. Sin is that which prevents the living of Totality. When sin is contemplated and then acted on, it is a corruption first of the intellect. The mind and ego override everything for the fulfillment of selfish needs,Continue reading “How and Why Does Brahman Live a Sinless Life?”

Brahman, Cosmic Dharma, and the End of Global Exploitation

Now that the earth is beginning to shed the plague of countries fighting among themselves like dog packs, and economic prosperity is becoming more widely available, the next issue to tackle is that of global economic exploitation, and the subhuman abuse of women and children. As human beings we contain at once, both the diversityContinue reading “Brahman, Cosmic Dharma, and the End of Global Exploitation”

Living Brahman

After describing the mechanics of Brahman here – the Cosmic access, with Divinity at hand for the fulfillment of every desire – I haven’t spoken much about what it feels like to live in complete Reality, complete Totality. Every thought finds its completion, whether through fruition or additional knowledge. Nothing is hidden – either ofContinue reading “Living Brahman”

Living Brahman in Three Worlds to Further Success in This One

Creating success always carries with it an element of risk, of uncertainty. It is the realization of something greater than what we had before, engaging a greater universal space, whether inside, outside or both. This is true independent of context, whether we are focused on more Being, acceptance, prosperity, or vitality as possible goals ofContinue reading “Living Brahman in Three Worlds to Further Success in This One”

How Brahman Brings Heaven on Earth

“Bringing Heaven on Earth”, was a phrase most recently popularized by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation. What does it even mean? Heaven is usually portrayed as the abode of the Divine, with angels floating about on soft puffy white clouds, through endless sunshine – someone’s sattvic dream of God Consciousness. Maharishi howeverContinue reading “How Brahman Brings Heaven on Earth”

Recreating the World by Living Brahman

This world we live in is an amazing place, and I love it. But we have picked up some bad habits, some tarnish along the centuries. This manifests as suffering in life, inequality, crime, and war. Even unethical and cruel thinking. Sin also destroys the intellect. How is this all put back together, how isContinue reading “Recreating the World by Living Brahman”

Fear, and the Absence of Fear by Living Brahman

Fear is nature’s teacher, always available when we need to proceed with caution. When something alien is presented to us that we cannot immediately integrate into our world view, our response is fear. This alien something can be potentially affecting our bodies needing immediate attention, or a strong thought that occurs in the mind, seenContinue reading “Fear, and the Absence of Fear by Living Brahman”

My camera has a 150 minute setting for night skies. it takes an exposure every few seconds for the duration, then stitches them all together for a video.

Self-Healing, and My Spirit Animal

Self-Healing As a result of doing some heavy lifting yesterday I injured my back in way that has happened before.

Very unpleasant, but not too bad this time, allowing me to continue to be activeContinue reading “Self-Healing, and My Spirit Animal”

Why and How Brahman Is True Freedom

Brahman is Totality. Freedom from fear, and the ability to ride the horse of consciousness anywhere. It is a good start. 🙂 But the development to Brahman occurs largely within the test tube of our Selves. Even with the relationships with Divinity that form, Brahman is the signaling of completion, the emergence of our fullContinue reading “Why and How Brahman Is True Freedom”

True Magic – How Miracles Change Our World View

I use the word ‘miracles’ to describe positive, sometimes dramatic events in our lives for which there is no rational explanation. Once these happen often enough, the entire psychology begins to shift, from one satisfied with the eventual fulfillment of routine goals, to moving into a larger, richer and deeper sphere of life where anythingContinue reading “True Magic – How Miracles Change Our World View”

Here Comes The Sun

It may seem a strange title, given the events in the world. On the one hand, pervasive global political, environmental, and economic upheaval, and on the other, “Here Comes The Sun”??? Along with all the seeming chaos though, over the last fifty years or so has emerged a profound global interest in consciousness, or theContinue reading “Here Comes The Sun”

Alignment to Brahman

Both of the physiologies of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Sri Brahmananda Saraswati are perfect; Totality. Simply perfect, as Mother made them. So that just by living life and their Dharma, all each of them could do was teach the royal road to Brahman; Totality. Just by Being; endlessly reflecting Brahman. Every gesture, every word, everyContinue reading “Alignment to Brahman”

Success follows purity. True. The greater the purity, the greater the success in eternal life. True. In the most practical sense, how do we increase Sattva or purity in our lives?

The Glory of Being Near Guru Dev by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (1974)

From a talk about Guru Dev which Maharishi gave in Hertenstein, Switzerland around 1974: “….

I will try to keep this as experiential as possible: One of the advantages to living Brahman is that subtle phenomena, the foundations of life, can be perceived accurately and in context. Although the lenses of perception can be cleansed, purified, and focused by the time that Maharishi’s God Consciousness [perception of the finest relative]Continue reading “The Heavenly Host acting on Earth”

“No one wants your mind in this world…”

This is a quote by Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev, I came across recently. I have always appreciated His no-nonsense yet endlessly compassionate expression: “Nobody wants your mind in this world, and the mind is not satisfied with anything of the world.

I do recall finding myself at my parents’ home in the DC area and sharing it with themContinue reading “So What Happened After The Visit From Brahmananda Saraswati (Guru Dev)?”

Brahman kicks our butt until we learn to dance with Grace

This was written this past June 2019, and speaks to the integration that takes place when living Brahman as a householder: Responding to a buddy recently, I wrote as part of my reply that, ‘Brahman apparently kicks our butt, once acknowledged, until we learn to dance with Grace.’ Quite a miracle of metaphysics that weContinue reading “Brahman kicks our butt until we learn to dance with Grace”
