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”

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”

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”

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”

The Living Absolute: Aligning to the World of the Six Divine Gunas

“The purpose of life is to enjoy bliss-consciousness and evolve to the eternal state of liberation while accomplishing and enjoying the maximum in life, achieving the greatest good for oneself and for others.” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Once Supreme Brahman, the eighth state of consciousness is lived, all of the six Divine gunas, governing bothContinue reading “The Living Absolute: Aligning to the World of the Six Divine Gunas”
