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”

Winged Victory Global Update for February 19th, 2020

Thank you for the growing and continued global interest in Winged Victory, a blog about living Brahman; Totality. It is very much appreciated! All continents (except Antarctica) are now represented, with 2020 additions so far of Brazil, Hong Kong SAR – China, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka. Here are all 27 countries listed by continent, inContinue reading “Winged Victory Global Update for February 19th, 2020”

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”

Winged Victory Global Update for December 30th, 2019

Thank you for your continued and growing interest in these descriptions of Brahman, Totality, Full Enlightenment, as brought to us by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Brahmananda Saraswati. Welcome most recently to Spain, bringing the total countries to 22. Also big recent spikes of interest from Italy, Lithuania, Slovenia, and India. In order of most views:Continue reading “Winged Victory Global Update for December 30th, 2019”

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”

Winged Victory Global Update for December 19th, 2019

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”

Shooting Stars, Even Wavy Ones

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. I knew the Leonid Meteor shower had occurred recently, and that most meteors or ‘shooting stars’ come out of the northeast sky. So I set up myContinue reading “Shooting Stars, Even Wavy Ones”

Winged Victory Global Update for November 20th, 2019

Thank you all for your global interest in Brahman, no matter how imperfectly I may convey it. I am very grateful to see such interest in these topics and experiences informed by Totality. Please feel free to comment on my posts too. 18 countries now, adding Poland. (In order of most views) United States, UnitedContinue reading “Winged Victory Global Update for November 20th, 2019”

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. The sensation is below the shoulder blades, as if there is a crack horizontally across the back, muscles and bone. 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”

“The Means Gather Around Sattva”; Success Follows Purity

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? Many practices are found in Yoga. TM is very helpful and the Sidhis too, both of which are aimed at purifying and strengthening theContinue reading ““The Means Gather Around Sattva”; Success Follows Purity”

Camp Fire One Year Anniversary 2019

Today we mark the one year anniversary of the Camp Fire disaster, November 8, 2018. Honoring the 85 dear souls who lost their lives in the horror. Remembering the robust community of Paradise that is now cleaned down to dirt, to just a few homes and businesses; 50 thousand lives scattered like leaves. Personally IContinue reading “Camp Fire One Year Anniversary 2019”

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: “…. The priceless transcendental nectar in which saints and seekers lose themselves and forget everything during their deep meditations in silent barren places – when that same nectar, that very same experience is had in nearness to the lotus feet ofContinue reading “The Glory of Being Near Guru Dev by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (1974)”

Here, Not Here

I had an early and intense education from birth to 17 years old on fitting in and rapid cultural integration, by changing the country I lived in every two to four years. At three months old I left the USA for Malaysia (Malaya then), Spain, Indonesia, The Philippines, and Hong Kong, in that order, withContinue reading “Here, Not Here”

My magical self-healing camera (Nikon P900)

Many of the pictures here are and will be taken with my Nikon P900. I bought it for astrophotography, though it also takes great pictures of the planet. About two years ago maybe a bit longer, after owning the camera a short time, I dropped it five feet onto concrete, straight down, striking the leftContinue reading “My magical self-healing camera (Nikon P900)”

The Heavenly Host acting on Earth

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. The mind is not fit for the world, or the world for the mind.Continue reading ““No one wants your mind in this world…””

Brahman and its place in the Sacred Architecture

What is a Sacred Architecture? It is the dynamic blueprint for life emanating from Mother Divine, the source of the source as She is sometimes referred to. It is Her direct emanation creating all. She is the longest living Being in Existence; Mother Divine IS Existence. Even encompassing such vastness; us, earth, galaxies, time, space,Continue reading “Brahman and its place in the Sacred Architecture”

The Unlimited Ignorance of Brahman

There are two types of ignorance, a willing, abiding ignorance, and an unwilling version. The willing ignorance of Brahman is an acknowledgement of Mother Divine and our place in Her midst, even living Brahman or Totality. It is a limitless and unbounded ignorance, even a blissful ignorance, eager to surrender to the challenge of becomingContinue reading “The Unlimited Ignorance of Brahman”

So What Happened After The Visit From Brahmananda Saraswati (Guru Dev)?

This visit happened after I had been doing TM for 18 years and the sidhis for 13, so there was enough experience with spiritual practice to avoid trying to recreate it, or chasing it in any way. 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”
