Learn How to Feel Energy Within a Minute

Energy is all around us, swirling about the Earth and the entire Universe circulating the life force, Chi, or Prana that connects everything that exists.

Everything is energy, and whether you realize it or not, you are continually taking in this vibrational energy and feeding your own resonance into this cycling force with the energy centers in the body.

This mass of energy flows throughout the entire universe and is felt among the collective conscious of all living beings.

Feeling Energy Within a Minute

While some people are very conscious of the way energy feels — energy healers for example — some have yet to become aware of their energetic resonance and power.

Take a look at this short video on Feeling Energy and then follow the steps below to learn how this phenomenon works, and how YOU can do it too, amaze your friends, and even exchange energy with them!

Mastering The Skill Of Harnessing Energy With Hands

1. Get comfortable, take some deep breaths, close your eyes and relax your mind and body.
2. Hold your palms facing each other about 1-2 inches apart.
3. Continuing to breathe in deeply from your abdominal regions, envision beams of energy filling your body, and centering within your stomach.
4. With each exhalation, visualize these beams of energy radiating through your chest, shoulders, and arms.
5. Move your palms in small circles while they face each other.  You may move only one palm, or two, depending on the energy vibrations between people that you would like to experience.
6. You may feel the warmth between the palms or tingling sensations.  It may feel as though your hands are experiencing a magnetic repelling effect, and they may separate while putting them closer together, becoming more challenging.
7. With each inhalation and exhalation, concentrate on the feelings between your palms to increase the vibrational resonance of this energy in the hands.

Many energy healers, such as Reiki healers use this Prana as the methodology for getting patients’ Chi flowing and to remove energy blockages and restore health.

Raising Vibrational Energy

And Energy Exchanges

 

Any time you need an energy boost you can summon it.

Close your eyes and stand erect with your feet shoulder width apart with your arms relaxed just a few inches away from your body.

Using your “mind’s eye” visualize energy rising from the Earth and the air all around you and traveling into your being.

You will likely feel a pulsating or tingling sensation in your body as the energy flows into you.

Continue “seeing” this energy pouring in through your shoulders, down your arms, and radiating into your heart center.

Feel the energy flowing downward and out through your toes and feet as it cycles back into the earthly plane.

You can do this quick one to two-minute exercise any time and most anywhere to boost your energy, elevate your mood, raise your vibrations, and even get your friends to understand the power of energy!

You can use this energy routine to harness energy and direct it towards others in aims to heal, comfort, or raise their vibrations.

While many master harnessing energy quickly, it makes take you a few times to successfully “feel” the effects.

Consider meditating upon the concepts for higher guidance or incorporating a few healing stones or vibrational jewelry into your energy routine.

Chakra Centers Of Mother Earth

Just as humans have seven (or more) identifiable energy centers in the body or swirling vortices of subtle energy, so are there Chakra centers of Mother Earth that govern her health and act as a reflection of her energetic evolution.  Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama developed a way to measure the Chakra centers of the human body – to give them a scientific basis although they have been considered purely Metaphysical for centuries – though Saints, Sages, Monks, and Yogis knew of their existence long before they were recognized by scientific instruments.

“There are many cultures that conceive of an energetic system which runs the body, but the Yogic Chakra System is said to be 4000-5000 years old.  Chakra translates loosely to mean  “wheel” from Sanskrit, but it more accurately describes a vortex of rotating energy.  Some Chakra systems contain twelve primary Chakras, others fewer, but they refer to a map of the energy circulating through the body, primarily through the spinal column.  Each Chakra is situated near an endocrine gland that is responsible for regulating hormonal reactions in the body.  The Chakras also act as translators of energy.  They assimilate energy from surrounding influences, including your own emotions and thoughts and the Chakras of others.  In the yogic conceptualization of the Chakra system, there are seven primary energy Chakras.” (Yogaforums.com)

Each Chakra has its own bandwidth of energy, and it governs the perspective of each person at that vibration. 

The Earth’s Chakras are very similar.  They are reflective of the root all the way to the crown.

sedonavortex-1

The Chinese/Japanese conceptualization of the Chakras or meridians is slightly different than the Indian conceptualization as is the Kabbalistic, but they weave into a very cohesive understanding of the energy body.  Such is also the case with the Earth’s energetic vortices or Chakras.  

If we look at nature, we discover that design and innovation – the architect and the inventor – are at work.  

What is the goal of this effort?  Alone, among the planets in the solar system,  Earth is the matrix for life.  

According to esoteric geographer Robert Coon, “the Earth is a living being, with its own creative, evolutionary will, and with its own methods for enacting that purpose“. 

What are the maximum potentialities for life?  

It is the true will of the Earth to find the answers to this question, and to communicate these results to other laboratories of life throughout the universe.” (earthchakras.org)  The same way that Kundalini energy weaves its way up the spine from the root of the spinal cord in a human being, in a DNA-like fashion, so energy also rotates throughout the planet.

chakra centers of mother earth

Here are the most commonly accepted geographic locations of the planet’s Chakra system and what they represent spiritually.  (Please note that some locations are not fixed because it is thought that the Chakras can shift locations based on planetary cycles):

1st Chakra –

Corresponds to the Root or Mooladhara Chakra 

Mt. Shasta in California is considered the root chakra of the planet.

(Some also say this is the 5th Chakra of the planet.)

This energy center is considered primal and “base”. 

Here is where the universal life force is considered to gather before it becomes life – and is representative of the geysers which rush to the surface with energy the same way that Kundalini energy is thought to rush to the crown, or Pineal gland, was awakened from the root Chakra.

2nd Chakra –

Corresponds to the Sexual Chakra or Swadhistana

Lake Titicaca – Peru/Bolivia is considered the 2nd Chakra of the planet. The Plumed Serpent – found in many South American myths is representative of the Kundalini energy rising to the sexual Chakra of the planet. 

Also called the Rainbow Serpent, this center has some of the most ley crossroads or ley lines on the planet, second only to Bali.  It is where our primal energy starts to “birth” itself, quite literally into form.  Some say that it is through this Chakra that the Earth overcomes entropy.

3rd Chakra –

Corresponds to Manipura or the Solar Plexus Chakra

Uluru, otherwise known as Ayers Rock in Australia along with Kata Tjuta, are the home of the Earth’s 3rd Chakra. This huge, monolithic rock is in the Northern Territory of Australia.

This is where Dreamtime legends arise from the Aboriginal peoples.  Anangu life revolves around the Tjukurpa (sometimes wrongly referred to as “the Dreamtime”). To the Aboriginal people, this is the ancestral period when the world was being formed.  Kata Tjuta is considered Uluru’s sister rock formation.  In us, the solar plexus is where we digest emotion – on the planet, it is where we will one day realize a legend told by the Aborigines from the “umbilical cord” of the planet.

4th Chakra –

The Heart Chakra, called Anahata in Indian traditions

Glastonbury, Somerset, and Shaftesbury, Dorset comprise the center of the world’s heart Chakra. This is the home of the Holy Grail. 

It is perhaps, also our greatest contribution to ourselves, and our fellow sentient beings on this planet –  where we can open our hearts to heal the earth and allow her to embody her rightful place as a peaceful, loving satellite in space.  Interestingly, this is an area known for high levels of crop-circle sightings that exhibit magnetic abnormalities.

5th Chakra –

The Throat or Vissuddha Chakra

The throat or voice of the planet is located near the Great Pyramids near Mt. Sanai and Mt. Olives in the Middle East. This is the one Chakra that does not exist at a ley line. 

It is the exact center of the earth’s land mass as it currently is configured.  Modern-day turmoil in the Middle East is considered to be “the cries of the mother,” or the voice of the planet calling for help.

6th Chakra –

The Pineal Gland or Third Eye Chakra

This chakra can shift – it is called the Aeon activation Center.

Now it is considered to be in Western Europe but will likely move over the next several thousand years.

This Chakra is the one that opens portals and allows extra-dimensional energy to enter this world. 

Just like our Pineal gland allows us to recognize other dimensions and realities, so does the 6th chakra of the Earth.

7th Chakra –

The Crown Chakra or Sahasrara, the Thousand Petaled Lotus, the Highest Energy Center

Mt. Kailas in the Himalayas in Tibet is considered the “roof of the world” and also our Earth’s Crown Chakra. The highly developed consciousness of Tibetan people, as evidenced through the Dalai Lama’s teachings, is indicative of the energy that resides at the Crown Chakra of the planet. 

Just as our own crown connects our will with Divine will, so does Mt. Kailas connect the planet with her spiritual destiny

Where is the Location of Consciousness?

The human brain is a complex organ that remains a mystery unto itself.  While the common myth that we only use ten percent of our brain still prevails, valuable insight on the matter proclaims we actually use much more than that.  “We use virtually every part of the brain, and [most of] the brain is active almost all the time.  Let’s put it this way: the brain represents three percent of the body’s weight and uses twenty percent of the body’s energy,”  explains neurologist Barry Gordon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore.

That fact makes the idea of someone living functionally with only ten percent of their brain intact truly mind-boggling.  But a French man who lives a relatively normal, healthy life is doing just that.  Despite missing 90 percent of his brain, the man isn’t mentally disabled.  The case has been puzzling scientists for nearly a decade.  Though researchers found he had a low IQ of 75, he was working as a civil servant and was also married with two children.  The man is challenging the way we understand consciousness, which begs the question:  How can someone without the majority of their neurons still be aware of themselves and their surroundings?  Being aware of one’s existence remains a confusing subject, with research still fairly thin.  Yet, since we do know awareness is somehow based in the brain, this man’s abilities are truly confounding.

At 44 years old, the French man went to the doctor complaining of muscle weakness in his left leg.  Brain scans showed his skull was mostly filled with fluid.  There was a mere thin outer layer of actual brain tissue, while the internal part was almost completed eroded away.  Doctors concluded that hydrocephalus – a condition he had been diagnosed with it as an infant – had slowly destroyed the brain over the course of 30 years.  As a child, it was treated with a stent.  Because it was removed when he was 14 years old, fluid built up in the brain and resulted in the evident erosion.  His apparent well-being led scientists to question what it actually takes to survive and be aware of the life you’re living, as this man certainly demonstrated despite his condition.

fx1_lrg

Researchers have linked consciousness to regions of the brain such as the claustrum (a thin sheet of neurons running between major brain regions) or the visual cortex.  But these hypotheses don’t correlate with the French man’s awareness.  “Any theory of consciousness has to be able to explain why a person like that, who are missing 90 percent of his neurons, still exhibits normal behavior,” states Axel Cleeremans, a cognitive psychologist from the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium.

Axel Cleeremans hypothesizes that consciousness is not something we are born with.  Rather, it is learned and such a phenomenon can occur in different brain regions.  Its location can be flexible.  “Consciousness is the brain’s non-conceptual theory about itself, gained through experience – that is learning, interacting with itself, the world, and with other people,” he says.  His hypothesis, called the “radical plasticity thesis,” is connected with recent research that has found the adult brain is more adaptable than we originally thought – even capable of taking on new roles when an injury occurs.

According to Cleeremans, even though the French man’s remaining brain was so small, the leftover neurons were still capable of generating a theory about themselves.  This explains how the man remained conscious of his actions.  This situation is a reminder that our brains can learn more than we might think, even under grave circumstances.  It also gives us hope that one day we may be able to reverse some of the illnesses caused by neurodegeneration.

Consciousness can operate beyond the brain, body, and the present, as hundreds of experiments and millions of testimonials affirm. Consciousness cannot, therefore, be identical with the brain.  In science, we have largely ignored how consciousness manifests in our existence.  We’ve done this by assuming that the brain produces consciousness; although how it might do so has never been explained and can hardly be imagined.

My conclusion is that consciousness is not a thing or substance.  It is a non-local phenomenon.  Non-local is merely a fancy word for infinite.  If something is non-local, it is not localized to specific points in space, such as brains or bodies, or to specific points in time, such as the present.  When scientists muster the courage to face this evidence unflinchingly, the greatest superstition of our age – the notion that the brain generates consciousness or is identical with it – will topple.  In its place will arise a non-local picture of the mind.

 

Amazing Satellite Photos of Fractal Patterns on Earth

 

Fractals occur naturally in every scale of life from the inconceivably large to the microscopic, and as I have always said, one needs to observe their surroundings and marvel at this amazing natural phenomenaPaul Bourke, a computer scientist at the University of Western Australia, started documented intriguing fractal patterns spread across the world, using Google Earth. 

Bourke looked at the different landscapes and areas across the globe; from mountain ranges, rivers, forests, sand dunes to wetlands, and when zoomed out, these landscapes formed replicating fractal patterns.  For example, if you look at a leaf, the veins bifurcate into even finer veins and they subdivide once again into even finer veins and this entire surface of the leaf resembles fractal characteristics. 

The same principle can be found in rivers – tributaries branching off the main river, and so forth, following a similar pattern until you get down to the smallest springs.  Even the ridges and mountain tops add to the amazing texture of each landscape, branching in and out in such extraordinarily beautiful patterns. 

It is unbelievable and beyond our imagination how Earth is brimming with fractal patterns, it’s a fractal world we are living in!

Establishing a Permaculture Based Food Forest

Permaculture is a design system that is based on understanding ecosystems.  It takes a look at the interactions between the trees, plants, fungi, bacteria, birds, animals and all other natural elements to create a sustainable ecosystem

In the video, we go through a slideshow with Josh Robinson, a Permaculturist who gives us a detailed insight into Permaculture, the functioning and how it works as a sustainable solution in creating a food forest.  He talks about the flaws in the traditional orchard system, where the same trees are planted together, thus making the soil deficient of the same nutrients, the need for fertilization and also susceptible to diseases. 

permaculture

The alternative to this method is a permaculture food forest, a perennial poly-culture of multi-purpose plants.

This design not only produces lots of food but provides other services such as pest control, auto fertilization, mulch, pollination and much more.  Food forests are designed to be highly productive with the least amount of labor. 

This video will explain how to create a sustainable orchard that is patterned after nature.

Nadis, Chakras and the Energy Centers in the Body

A couple of years ago I used to visit homeopath to treat a recurring hair loss problem.

She would diagnose the cause by checking my pulse, known as Nadis Pariksha (pulse examination).

Surprisingly, she would point out the right causes, simply by examining the energy flow in the Nadis.

In ancient Indian medicine, Nadis are the channels/pathways or energy centers in the body that carry Prana/life force throughout the body. 

They connect at special energy points called Chakras.

The Sanskrit term “Nadi” comes from the root word “Nad”, which means motion, flow or vibration.  Just as veins and arteries are important for the healthy functioning of our physical body, Nadis weave through our physical nerves as well as the subtle circuitry (yoga Nadis) of the mind, of the Self, of the consciousness matrix that supports our physical presence from invisible dimensions of existence.

 
Illustration showing the Nadis and major and minor Chakras

 

Prana needs to flow freely through the system to be healthy. 

When it becomes weak or congested, it leads to poor mental and physical health.

Often, painful life experiences lead to blockages and ultimately health woes; so opening up these channels is important for our overall well-being.

The body is filled with innumerable Nadis that cannot be counted.

Tantric wisdom state that there are 72,000 Nadis in the human body.

Fourteen are principal Nadis out of which Sushumna, Ida and Pingala are considered the three most important.

Nadis are energy channels that carry Prana throughout our body

 

Ida, associated with the energy of the moon, represents the feminine aspect of our personality and is often shown as white.

Ida is also the Yin element in Chinese philosophy.

Ida controls the function of the parasympathetic nervous system which calms the mind and body because it is related to emotions, feelings, and memories. 

When Ida becomes too strong or dominant, tiredness, depression, introversion and an inability to see things with a clear perspective can take over.

The Ida Is Channeled Via The Left Nostril And Pingala Nadi Through The Right Nostril.

Pingala, associated with the energy of the sun, represents the masculine aspect of our personality and is often shown as red.

Pingala controls the sympathetic nervous system and stimulates activities and planning of body and mind.  Pingala Nadi is responsible for the logical, rational and analytical intellect. 

Pingala is also the Yang element in Chinese philosophy.

When Pingala is overused, due to the hustle and bustle of city life, we can have difficulty sleeping and concentrating.  We can become anxious, irritable and impulsive.

Ida and Pingala start/end to the left and the right of the Sushumna respectively, moving in spirals like the DNA helix, crossing at each chakra or energy portal. 

Anahata Menon, shamanic healer, and mystic at Anahata Foundation explained, “It is the interaction between these two distinct yet complementary energy channels that controls our mental processes, intuition and the activity that takes place between the left and right hemisphere of our brain.  The sacred union between the male (solar or day) and female (lunar or night) aspects of our spiritual nature forms the basis of most evolutionary esoteric paths.

spinal_chakra_diagram-2-895x1024

Sushumna is the central channel of energy in the human body. 

Sushumna runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and carries Kundalini energy (the primal evolutionary force within) upwards as it is awakened through the practice of yoga and meditation.

Sushumna Nadi only opens and flows freely when Ida and Pingala Nadis are balanced and clear. 

Thus the purification of all three Nadis is important for the overall health, wellness of the body and mind, and the experience of spiritual growth.

Anahata said, “However, as a spiritualist, even though I personally enjoy all the technicalities of ancient wisdom and esoteric arts, I don’t obsess over them. If our spiritual urge or intent is aligned to infinite expansion of awareness, potentials, and consciousness, to love, to higher principles of freedom, and balance for the highest good of all, then any sincere spiritual practice, be it yoga or plant spirit medicine, drum medicine or Reiki, should support this process effectively.  As humanity makes a big shift of consciousness from the Collective Mind to the Collective Heart, I believe that the subtle technologies of our physical and etheric bodies will unlock (reveal themselves to us) and spontaneously restore or repair themselves to a state of optimum balance and health.”

chinese meridian

In traditional Chinese medicine, Meridian is a path through which the life-energy or Qi flows

 

To determine the flow of current at any time, note the flow of breath in the nostrils.

If the left nostril has a greater flow of air, then Ida Nadi is predominant.

When the flow is greater in the right nostril, then Pingala is predominant.

If the flow is equal, Sushumna is ruling.

 

Hatha Yoga is a yoga technique that focuses on bringing this balance. Meditation, Pranayam, breath work and sound (Nada or Swara yoga) healing are different paths that one can explore to achieve this balance as well.

7 Important Differences Between Religion & Spirituality

“It is not that the Way broadens humans; it is that humans broaden the Way.” ~ Confucius

There are roughly 4,200 religions in the world today.  Most people believe in only one of them and renounce the other 4,199, while a small minority renounces all of them. 

There are roughly 7.3 billion people on the planet today, and every single one of us has a different psycho-physiological interpretation and perception of what spirituality and religion mean.  But, and here’s the rub, spirituality is inherent within the human condition and is as unique as our own fingerprint. 

Religion, not so much.  Religion is dictated, while spirituality is intuited.  Religion preaches while spirituality inspires.  Religion pretends to be “the Way” that broadens humanity.  Spirituality frees humanity to broaden “the Way.”

Religion is the parochial dead-end path of our ignorant forefathers, whereas spirituality up-ends that dead-end path and allows for a personal journey with the numinous.  Indeed, as Hingori said, “Spirituality begins where religion ends.”

Here are seven differences between religion and spirituality:

1) Spirituality is flexible; religion is dogmatic: “Mystery is a place where religion and science meet.  Dogma is a place where they part.  Awe-based psychology is a place where they can evolve and reunite.” ~ Kirk Schneider, PhD

Dogma has been a serious psychological hang-up for our species for thousands of years.  Our tendency to become rigid and inflexible in our thinking is an all-too-common problem.  We are a young species, after all.  There is still so much for us to figure out, and it can be daunting as hell (pun intended).

The problem is we tend to avoid an intimidating cosmos by closing ourselves off into the overly comfortable and placating nutshells of religion.  We shut down the sacred quest.  We close off the search.  We place all our eggs into a particular “basket,” swearing off all baskets, even at the risk of forsaking the baskets that have the potential to help us flourish.  In short: we become dogmatic and closed-off from the numinous.

But there is newfound hope when we are able to transform dogmatic religiosity into flexible spirituality.  True spirituality up-ends the baskets that we cling to.  It shatters the all-too-precious eggs on the tough-love concrete of an interconnected reality, revealing that flexibility and the ability to adapt and overcome are the way to move forward when facing a vastly unknown and astonishingly mysterious universe.

a-spirit1
2) Spirituality is liberating (courage-based); religion is authoritative (fear-based): “That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.” ~ P.C. Hodgell

It’s so easy for the majority of us to allow an authority to do our thinking for us.  Most of us were raised in authoritative cultures and conditioned by biased indoctrination, after all.  Unless at some point we are taught to question things, it’s all too easy to get caught up in authoritative jargon.

No matter how outdated or nonsensical that jargon is, if we don’t learn a courage-based disposition we’ll always be caught in the fear-based indoctrination of authority, mostly due to the power of cognitive dissonance.  Spirituality is the courage-based liberation of the soul from the fear-based prison of church and state.  It frees compassion, empathy, and morality from the fallible stranglehold of human-made laws.

a-spirit3

If, as H. L. Mencken surmised, “[m]orality is doing right, no matter what you are told.  Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right,” then spirituality is tapping into the forces behind what makes things “right” or “wrong” (a universal healthy/unhealthy dynamic) and acting on those forces in a moral way, despite the declarations of church and state.

Spirituality courageously questions power; religion cowardly kowtows to it.  Jesus and Buddha were spiritual rebels who challenged dogmatic orthodoxy, not religious zealots obsequious to it.  Where religion is taking a leap of faith because of fear, spirituality is taking a leap of courage despite fear.

3) Spirituality is a painful growth; religion is comfortable stagnation: “The path of the spiritual warrior is not soft and sweet.  It is not artificially blissful and pretends forgiving.  It is not fearful of divisiveness.  It is not afraid of its own shadow.  It is not afraid of losing popularity when it speaks its truth.  It will not beat around the bush where directness is essential.  It has no regard for vested interests that cause suffering.  It is benevolent and it is fiery and it is cuttingly honest in its efforts to liberate itself and humanity from the egoic ties that bind.” ~ Jeff Brown.

Religion keeps us pampered and contented.  We feel nice and cozy in the teachings passed down by the authority of our forefathers.  And why not?  It’s so much easier to just lean on the laws created by other men.

No matter how outdated or ridiculous those laws are, and no matter how fallible and imperfect those men were.  There’s no thinking involved.  All we have to do is obey and not question any of it lest we appear blasphemous in the eyes of our peers.  Easy!

True spirituality flips the tables on blind obedience.  No fear, only fearlessness.  It questions outdated laws.  It upsets all dogmatic apple carts.  But it is not without pain.  It is not without existential angst.  As Eckhart Tolle says, “the fire of suffering becomes the light of consciousness.”

A spiritual person is a beacon fully lit, brightening an uncertain shoreline where waves of doubt crush the beaches of certainty.  Those who are spiritual dip in and out of all religions, ideologies, mythologies, and philosophies, taking the healthy with them and leaving the unhealthy behind.  They are existential alchemists, transforming religious lead into spiritual gold.  And such gold shines all the brighter in dark times.

a-spirit2

4) Spirituality is open-minded; religion is close-minded: “To conceive of ourselves as fragmentary matter cohering for a millisecond between two eternities of darkness is very difficult.” ~ Sebastian Faulks

A religious person stubbornly believes; a spiritual person takes things into consideration and lets things go.  If “belief is a wound that knowledge heals,” as Ursula K. Le Guin states, then open-mindedness is the scar left behind: flexible and robust from the harsh lessons of vicissitude.  In spiritual circles, curiosity is allowed to be foremost; in religious circles, curiosity is atrophied by the reliance on outdated “answers”.

Where religion blindly clings to what it believes is right, spirituality openly surrenders to what could be healthy.  Those who are spiritual tend to be more open-minded precisely because they are free to question everything, to practice probability, to embrace being wrong, and to remain curious and skeptical in the face of parochial authorities grown uncouth through the passage of time.

5) Spirituality is interdependent; religion is codependent: “Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.” ~ Rumi

Religion is codependent upon the establishment of church and state.  Spirituality is interdependent despite establishments.  Where the religious person submits to the authority of religion and politics, the spiritual person subsumes all religious and political strongholds through flexible inter-connectedness, thus transcending entrenched power constructs.

Spirituality is a force of nature, and the spiritual person becomes a fountainhead for an ecstatic universe, a mighty conduit, an existential pivot where the cosmic dance between an independent observer and observed interdependence is free to take place.  There is a music in this sacred space that doesn’t use words, and the spiritual person has the ears with which to listen.

a-spirit4

6) Spirituality speaks a language older than words; religion speaks a language limited by words: “The poet and the musician together speak a natural and universal language… The original language that all creators spoke before the fall of man. This language is, of course, the language of the birds.  And, what does it mean?  What does the shape of a tree mean?  What do clouds mean?  What is the meaning of the way the stars are scattered through the sky?  Both poetry and music lead us to the understanding of what this world is all about. Which is: It’s a dance.  A rhythm.” ~ Alan Watts

Within the mysterious rhythm of the cosmic orchestra playing itself out, the spiritual person dances in full glory.  While the religious person cowers in fear of God, the spiritual person pirouettes through the fear and dances with God.  For those who are spiritual have tapped into the interconnected Mecca.  They are milking the essence of all things, the language of birds and sky, fire and ice, life and death, permanence and impermanence –the voice of God and the song of Infinity.

The Truth is a gamboling gamble, and those who are truly spiritual are gamblers par excellence, knowing that the human condition is fallible and flawed, but having the ontological wherewithal to rise above it with an act of Promethean courage that topples outdated godheads.

They rise up with a full heart, with audacious love, with a throat Chakra in full flutter speaking fluently A Language Older Than Words.  But they are still not afraid to speak their experienced truth.  For as Gustave Flaubert observed, “Human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.”

7) Spirituality allows the Great Mystery (God) to be truly infinite:  “How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, ‘This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, subtler, more elegant?’  Instead, they say, ‘No, no, no! My God is a little God, and I want him to stay that way.'” ~ Carl Sagan

Spirituality is vulnerable intimacy with the Infinite.  Religion is veiled invulnerability pretending to be intimate.  A spiritual person understands that Infinity cannot be pigeonholed into finite constructs.

God cannot be crammed into human-made models.  Through such understanding, the spiritual person transcends the finite game of religion in order to play the infinite game of spirituality.

The mirror through which we reflect the Great Mystery is the same mirror through which the Great Mystery reflects us.  The spiritual person has intuited this, shed the middleman, and become the mirror.

Where the religious person is desperately looking for his/her own reflection, the spiritual person has become Reflection itself, understanding that there is no duality, only the illusion of duality.

There is no finitude, only the illusion of finitude.  They are walking, talking, meditating Mirrors dancing as Reflection between micro and macro, flesh and spirit, man and God, order and chaos, entropy and life.  They have risen above the empty placation’s and petty platitudes of religion and have embraced the open explication and flexible interpretation of the Great Mystery through spirituality.

The spiritually robust have moved on from the shackles of someone else’s experience in order to feel their own experience, understanding, as Angeles Arrien did that “we are all unique medicine“.
