Where Do We Live When We Live Brahman, the 8th State of Consciousness?

Where do we live when we live Brahman? In the transcendent – We live in the transcendental field of life. Our home is the interface between relative, ever-changing life, and the Absolute nature of Divinity that supports it. This is where we dwell. This happens naturally as the human physiology is purified through sadhana, andContinue reading “Where Do We Live When We Live Brahman, the 8th State of Consciousness?”

Two Letters to a Friend in Norway – ‘Once in Brahman, Always in Brahman’

[One] Thank you for the link to the interview with Vesey Chrichton. Very interesting. I had a similar experience (except for attending Eton, of course…), just sort of fell into training and networking protocols for computers, and I was quickly drawn to research, write and teach courses, later managing the process. Reading and listening toContinue reading “Two Letters to a Friend in Norway – ‘Once in Brahman, Always in Brahman’”

From CC to Supreme Brahman, the Distance From Liberation to Fulfillment

“We are not satisfied with peace alone. There has to be prosperity, there has to be affluence, there has to be fulfillment in life, not just peace.” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Cosmic Consciousness (CC) is our permanent awakening to our eternal, infinite nature. It is our eternal liberation, unchaining us from time and space, fromContinue reading “From CC to Supreme Brahman, the Distance From Liberation to Fulfillment”

Living With the Finest Levels of Creation

“You have heard the saying that all that there is in the universe is within man? And that is it. The subtlest strata of our existence, that state of glow, that we experience, is the field of God. And from there comes to us the direct communion with those celestial Gods. And this is whatContinue reading “Living With the Finest Levels of Creation”

What Happens When We Die After Attaining Cosmic Consciousness (CC)?

I was recently contacted by someone wanting clarification around Maharishi’s statements that once Cosmic Consciousness (CC), the fifth state of consciousness, is reached, and we are enjoying the endless diversity of relative life supported by the deep continuous silence of the Absolute, that no more earthly lifetimes would be provided, and even the taking ofContinue reading “What Happens When We Die After Attaining Cosmic Consciousness (CC)?”

Purity, Divinity, Sattva – Enlightenment’s Key Ingredient

The three elemental components of relative life are motion, persistence, and purity, also known as the three gunas of rajas, tamas, and sattva. Sattva is a natural and balanced component of every living thing, providing the silent guidance and creative intelligence of Divinity. As human beings we are in a unique cosmic position, interpolated betweenContinue reading “Purity, Divinity, Sattva – Enlightenment’s Key Ingredient”

Happy Independence Day!

The holiday of Easter celebrates transcendence, and transcendence is true independence, and freedom. Happy Independence Day! 🙂 Blessedly for the past fifty years, the knowledge and experience of reliable transcendence has again become available on a daily basis vs. only at physical death, per the Easter story. Once we begin the TM and TM-Siddhis programs,Continue reading “Happy Independence Day!”

Maharishi Describes Proximity to Guru Dev

The pouring rain outside reminds me of the pouring out of grace, love, support, friendship and compassion that comes from Guru Dev, Sri Brahmananda Saraswati. Though any view of Him is possible, these days He appears so brightly, so much light flooding out of Him that His physical form is evident, though mostly clear almostContinue reading “Maharishi Describes Proximity to Guru Dev”

The Stillness After the Flood – What Next?

The analogy of a flood describes well my last two and a half years. Just as the biblical flood washed the earth clean, so has the tsunami of knowledge I have been faced with recording over these last thirty months done the same thing with my consciousness, laundering it clean and clear. During these pastContinue reading “The Stillness After the Flood – What Next?”

Our Decisions Made Towards Living Supreme Brahman

Viewing our spiritual evolution in the context of the three distinct realities or flavors of Brahman – Perishable, Imperishable, and Supreme (shown above on the map of human consciousness), we can see that there are formal introductions to each of these three realities. First, for Perishable Brahman, everyone on earth gets a ticket, as theContinue reading “Our Decisions Made Towards Living Supreme Brahman”

Life Is Bliss – The Journey from Imperishable Brahman to Supreme Brahman

“Bliss becomes blissful with practice. In our own bliss the desire, desirer and process of desiring are united – they are one. Desire is fulfilled at its source.” — Maharishi Mahesh Yogi I remember hearing this expression, “Life is Bliss”, very early on in my practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM). I also found such aContinue reading “Life Is Bliss – The Journey from Imperishable Brahman to Supreme Brahman”

Reflecting the Colors of God

As we know, the color of an object is determined by the color within the illuminating light that is not absorbed by the object. This color is then reflected back to us. For example a sunrise is seen as orange, because all other colors have been absorbed by the sunrise. Using this analogy, it isContinue reading “Reflecting the Colors of God”

Welcome to Spring 2022!

Nature powerfully transcends four times a year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, each changing the earth completely, and adding momentum to our intentions. Spring itself, the entire season, can be harnessed as the expression of Virya, or wholesome momentum, a primary component of Divine life, one of our six Divine gunas. So that every thought,Continue reading “Welcome to Spring 2022!”

All Perception and Manifestation Is Structured in Consciousness – The Lifecycle of Brahman

As our access to consciousness, the lifeblood of the Cosmos, expands, our Reality expands too. We gain greater access to all Relative life, and through the regular and sustained daily routine of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Siddhis program, a full picture of our Absolute existence, the foundation of life, becomes clear also, along with allContinue reading “All Perception and Manifestation Is Structured in Consciousness – The Lifecycle of Brahman”

A Recent Clarification from Maharishi to Me

I had an unusual but perfectly fitting experience yesterday – During all of this time from when I began TM in November of 1975, I have never gotten a feeling from Maharishi that I could serve Him directly. I didn’t know what this lack of support was, and the more I tried to show MaharishiContinue reading “A Recent Clarification from Maharishi to Me”

The Architecture of the Absolute Field of Life – Living Supreme Brahman

Having defined the content of the Absolute (the six Divine Gunas) in a previous post, what I am describing here are timeless and infinite structures within the Absolute, unchanging, eternal foundation of life. What appears initially as a completely still, unmanifest field of life, known as the Absolute field, supporting the Relative, ever changing manifestationContinue reading “The Architecture of the Absolute Field of Life – Living Supreme Brahman”

The Five Nights of Supreme Brahman – How Each of the Six Divine Gunas Is Established

Having become victorious over the ShhaDarivarga (the six internal enemies), we transcend the seventh state of human consciousness, Unity Consciousness (UC), and begin to live Totality or Supreme Brahman, the eighth state of consciousness. Supreme Brahman becomes established by fully manifesting each of the six Divine gunas in the Absolute unchanging eternal field of life.Continue reading “The Five Nights of Supreme Brahman – How Each of the Six Divine Gunas Is Established”

Bringing Coherence, Peace, and Orderliness

Coherence, peace, and order are established not by force or control, but rather purification – like dirty water, nothing is accomplished by spraying it violently, or keeping it contained. Only by filtering it does it become pure again, and fully life supporting. This is similar to the way peace is brought about, by the steady,Continue reading “Bringing Coherence, Peace, and Orderliness”

My Recent Reply to a Norwegian Friend

Author’s note: My paternal grandmother was from Norway, so I feel very warm towards this country and have made many friends there. 🙂~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [Beginning the Journey to Supreme Brahman] “…You are welcome!

Our Bright Future

An analysis of education, healthcare, prosperity, and safety in the USA from 1960 to 2020: Look at almost any headline in the news and things seem grim, except for an occasional rally from some embattled political initiative. All seems on a razor’s edge, with our safety and prosperity as a country threatened at every turn.Continue reading “Our Bright Future”

Bringing Heaven On Earth Through Character Development

Heaven On Earth means a world that reflects the values inherent in the six Divine gunas; Truth, Immortality, Wealth, Wholesome Momentum, Divine Energy, and Cosmic Sovereignty.

Living Supreme Brahman – Manifesting the Six Divine Gunas

“Be without the three gunas” This is the expression uttered by Lord Krishna, and captured in the Bhagavad Gita, to bring His devotee Arjuna first to the partial Absolute value of life, by partially transcending the three ordinary gunas of manifestation, the motive forces of relative creation, tamas (inertia), rajas (motion), and sattva (purity). TheContinue reading “Living Supreme Brahman – Manifesting the Six Divine Gunas”

Why Brahman as the Eighth State of Consciousness Was Not Presented Publicly Until Now

Looking at my recently published map of human consciousness, many practitioners of Transcendental Meditation (TM), including those in the TM Organization, may be surprised to see that what they thought of as integrated full enlightenment, Unity Consciousness (UC), is only about two thirds of the way up the ascending tree of human consciousness. Living Brahman,Continue reading “Why Brahman as the Eighth State of Consciousness Was Not Presented Publicly Until Now”
