Maria Zeee With Dane Wigington – Vaccines in the Air & Relentless Poisoning of Humanity

Nanoparticles from the Sky, My Coughing, & Increasing Allergies

This post is about my own experience with persistent-coughing. For the last seven years, I lived on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. As time passed, I began to notice a change in this once rural paradise — a change for the worse.

The Olympic Peninsula had become a designated Electronic Warfare EW Zone. There was nothing any of us could do about it. I found myself living under the chemically sprayed and radiation scarred skies provided everyday by the Navy. I took hundreds of photographs to no avail. Over the seven years, how much of this stuff has made its way into my lungs?

For various reasons that I’m certain the readers here will understand, in February of this year, I made the decision to pick up and move to Florida — where it seemed some sanity still remained. At my age 76 this was a highly stressful and overwhelming decision. The packing & moving logistics were bad enough. Plus we had to drive, that meant 10 hours a day for six days on the Interstate — which is a horrific nightmare of trucks and traffic jams. Oceans of cars…

A few days into the drive, I began to cough. It wasn’t so bad at first — but increased in severity. My immune system compromised, by the time we got to Florida, I was very ill. Coughing continually for the past 5 months, completely exhausted, in despair. I am still coughing. I have lost 15 pounds.

Dane Wigington has reported that millions of tons of these nanoparticle size aluminum, barium, etc. are being dropped into our skies everyday. How much was already in my 76-year-old lungs when I arrived in Florida.

Because the coughing has never stopped, I began to research coughing. Did you know that our body produces mucus to protect us? We cough to get rid of ‘particles’ that our body doesn’t want in our lungs.

Apparently there is an epidemic increase in allergy related symptoms, including coughing. And a epidemic of people who cannot get their levels of mucus back to normal.

There are online articles predicting the increase in sales of “mucus clearance devices” that say sales will top US$ 595.2 Mn in 2022 — and US$ 847.0 Mn by 2028.

https://www.futuremarketinsights.com/reports/mucus-clearance-devices-market

Big business! Look at the explosion of ‘mucus relief’ products on allergy shelf in your local pharmacy. What is going on here? I realize my age makes me vulnerable. But this seems to be truly epidemic.

Is there a relationship between the tons of particles in the air we are breathing every day and excess out-of-control mucus in our lungs? We know our immune systems have been compromised by the food we eat — 65% of Americans are now obese, which usually means diabetes. And a huge percentage are on prescription drugs.

So this is my personal story. I am sharing what happened to me in the hope of expanding our knowledge regarding the ongoing dispersions in our skies. I hope none of you are suffering from this.

Long, deep and worth your time!

“Essence of the Exact Reality or Paramarthasara of Abhinavagupta”

“… when the Iron Age (Kali Yuga) was sufficiently advanced, the sages who were in the possession of the Shaiva Tantric traditions, retired to places inaccessible to ordinary mortals.”                    
– Abhinavagupta: A Historical & Philosophical Study 

Abhinavagupta was a 10th century Kashmir Shaivite enlightened master and genius. Some say he was India’s greatest mind. In 2005 I purchased a copy of his “Essence of the Exact Reality or Paramarthasara of Abhinavagupta” translated by B.N. Pandit from Exotic India. I have kept this slender volume near me all these years and still find it illuminating and inspiring.

Here is the link to the pdf:

http://www.gianfrancobertagni.it/materiali/tantra/essence.pdf

My writing on Abhinavagupta and Kashmir Shaivism:

http://metaphysicalmusing.com/articles/shaivism/kashmir_shaivism.htm

Abhinavagupta / NO DIVERSITY IS THE REAL TRUTH : “All such theories are merely some dialectical speculations useful in discussions and debates. None among such entities has any real existence, as all are mere suppositions and imaginary concepts of thinks.”

Abhinavagupta tells us to again & again say this: “I AM INFINITELY POTENT AND ABSOLUTELY PURE CONSCIOUSNESS.”

Swami Lakshmanjoo

There are numerous translations — including one by the Kashmir Shaivite Swami Lakshmanjoo — all reflecting the consciousness of the translator.

https://www.lakshmanjooacademy.org/essence-of-the-highest-reality/

However, even though I learn from them all, I still find that the B.N. Pandit is my favorite.

Certainly, Ramana Maharshi has clarified the teachings of the sacred Sankrit texts. And the river of Truth, SATYA runs through all Time.

The Song of Ribhu
Translated from the Original Tamil Version by Dr. H. Ramamoorthy & Nome; Society for the Abidance of Truth, 2000.

29:1
There is no object that is real, ever.
Whatever is seemingly real is all completely illusory.
When measured by reasoning and such,
Even that illusoriness is only the substratum.
… the substratum [the imperishable, eternal, immeasurable, immutable, One]…is the only Reality.

29:2
Whoever hears and understands this, will attain Liberation.
There is not the least doubt of this.
Of this world, which is an illusory superimposition on Consciousness,
There is nothing real or unreal.

28:38
… this form-filled, false, insentient, sorrowful world
Is entirely an illusory superimposition
On the substratum of all, the Supreme Brahman…

As for me … I have apparently lost considerable interest in the unraveling of this world.

“You are not the Doer”

VSF: The idea that “We are not the Doer” of all our acts is perhaps one of the most difficult to absorb. Am I really merely the instrument, or as Ramana Maharshi says the ‘tool’ of the One? Here is a quotation of Ramana Maharshi in the book “Be As You Are: The Teachings of Ramana Maharshi” edited by David Godman:

Question: Is God really the doer of all the actions I perform?

Answer: The present difficulty is that man thinks he is the doer. But it is a mistake. It is the higher power which does everything and man is only a tool. If he accepts that position he is free from troubles, otherwise he courts them.

VSF: How could it be otherwise? There is only One! It is our ego that allows us to believe that we are separate from God and thus we think our actions, whatever we do or think, come solely from us. But that could never be. Everything is God, the One. When we realize this fact, we are free from the binding effects of our acts. We are Liberated from the bondage of Delusion.

We are designed to imagine that we are separate from the One God, veiled by God in our self-created illusions and delusions that allow us to manifest and experience the vast infinite potential of the One God Creator. When we are weary of this Divine Play, the LILA in Sanskrit, or when we begin to see how intensely repetitive it all is — then we turn within, into the Heart, where the God-within us that is all pervading, ubiquitous is patiently waiting for our sweet Return!

Why wouldn’t the God-within be patient. Time does not exist!

Below are some thoughts I wrote on the Truth that we are not the doer inspired by the Bhagavad Gita. May you be forever Free!

You are not the Doer! Part I / Bhagavad Gita XVIII.16
 
There in truth thus, the one who acts,
Who sees himself, indeed, as the only exclusive agent,
He sees, he perceives from an imperfect incomplete understanding
He sees not, the blockhead!
tatraivam sati kartaram
atmanan kevalam tu yah
pashyaty akritabuddhitvan
na sa pashyati durmatih

 
Durmatis (m.) – fool, blockhead; ‘Du’ – to be burnt, to be consumed with internal heat or sorrow.

Krishna’s choice of the Sanskrit word durmatis, which is translated as either fool or blockhead, has always amused me. It gives the dialogue a very human touch. Here are the two greatest warriors in the world poised in the middle of Kurukshetra, a vast battlefield of opposing armies waiting to slaughter each other. Krishna is in the last moments of the Gita, his great ‘song’ of what-are-the-rules wisdom to his friend Arjuna — and the poet Seer Vyasa chooses the word ‘blockhead’ to emphasize the sheer density of our human ignorance to imagine that we ever do anything! There is only the One and we are That veiled in data-collecting vehicles.

The idea that we are not the Doer of our acts is presented earlier in the Bhagavad Gita III.27, Krishna says that all actions are performed by the gunas, the modes or qualities that belong to Prakriti, the matrix and our material Nature. Yet as long as our mind is confused and deluded by egotism (ahamkara), we continue in the mistaken belief that ‘I am the doer!’ In truth we are not the Doer. All actions are the product of Prakriti and whatever we do is merely the result of these modes working together, weaving upon the other modes, the ‘qualities (gunas) acting among the qualities (gunas)’ [BhG.III.28].


Swami Lakshmanjoo: “There is only one difference between an ignorant person and that person who is residing in the Parabhairava state [meaning who has Become the Oneness]. The person who has got ego and who is residing in the limited cycle of limitation, he always thinks that, ‘I have done this, I have done this.’ And the others who are residing in God consciousness, they say, ‘although I have done this, I have not done this. I am not the doer. The doers are the inferior cycles of organs. I am not the doer.’ This is the difference between the one who is residing in the Parabhairava state and the other one who is residing in his limited cycle of being.”

Ancient Samkhya
The Sanskrit word Prakriti is defined as primordial Nature, the creatrix, and is derived from the verb-root ‘kri’ meaning ‘to make, to do’ and ‘pra’ meaning ‘forth’ [J. Grimes]. The conceptual theory of Prakriti’s gunas (sattva, rajas, and tamas) is derived from Samkhya [pronounced San-kay]. The origin of Samkhya is elusive, but the influence of Samkhya is found in the Upanishads, Buddhism, Jainism, the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita. The Indian scholar K.K. Nair/Krishna Chaitanya says that even though Samkhya is “the source for the factorial analysis of action, it cannot be derived from any Samkhya text.” Samkhya literally means the ‘enumeration’ and perhaps the term evolved from seers gleaning a compilation of wisdom from many sources “as the perspective gained from the integration of reason and knowledge.”


K.K. Nair/Krishna Chaitanya: “The seat of matrix of action is the frame of body, life and mind…The instruments are primarily the motor organs but also include the sense organs…the various patterns of coordinated operation for the realisation of objectives…” Thus the body is the instrument of various activities and is presided over by ‘daivam’ meaning belong to the gods, fate or diving providence and “specifies the overall texture of the web of the world’s action which is woven from the strands that link specific causes to specific results.”


The ‘gods’ are the specific forces residing within our body. This is esoteric knowledge and scholars who are researching the Rig Veda have come to understand that the deities being propitiated in the hymns are not external deities, but rather the subtle essential modes of various powers that make up human consciousness. Our human body is a microcosm of the One. The human body is a data-collecting vehicle for the One who dwells in the Heart of all beings.


K.K. Nair/Krishna Chaitanya: Daivam means the vaster action of nature beyond the small illuminated circle, which is all that man, even with the greatest foresight can take into account in planning his action.” Unintended consequences abound and even the best of prophets often get it wrong. The fabric of the temporal illusory holographic matrix is interwoven, complex and interconnected. “When we select and stimulate a single strand of cause-effect relation for reaching our objective, we often forget that the strand is part of a fabric of great extension, both in space and time. The tensions on the other strands of the fabric may cancel, distort or reinforce the action on the selected strand.”


We are the Oneness, Veiled
The idea that we are not the Doer goes back into the question of Free Will, which I have explored in XVIII.61. The One uses us to create and enjoy our countless adventures in this manifested universe. The enigma and mystery of our origin and purpose drives us to further actions. If we knew that we are the One and thus the entirety of all, what would drive us to change and uncover new adventures in creativity and invention? Thus we remain Veiled and motivated.


The One has Veiled Itself as us in Time/Space to play in this temporal illusory polarity universe. We are in disguise ‘playing’ various roles, like Shakespeare’s “All the world’s a stage.” We are not here to give up everything, but to enjoy everything – and eventually, inevitably in Self-recognition, Remember that we are the One. Thus it is the One doing the actions as primordial Nature, Prakriti and her gunas, which is a mechanism comparable to a machine-like matrix. The One is the Doer. There is only the One manifesting through Its data-collecting vehicles — us!


This does not mean that we are not responsible for our acts, we are. We cannot blame the One for our mistakes. As we sow, so we do definitely reap. Our every act and thought is embedded in the holographic spirit body within which we move from one life to another, as we seek to fulfill our endless ‘I want’ desires impelling us to more adventures in time/space. Our spirit body is made up of the accumulated sums of our thoughts and acts, which form the warp-and-weave of us as ‘apparent’ individuals. Our self-generated uniqueness serves to both limit and expand us. We are whatever we have done, as long as we remain in ignorance that we are not the Doer!

Swami Lakshmanjoo BhG.XIII.30: “Oh Arjuna, I am just open-heartedly waiting for everybody to come and embrace Me and become one with Me. [There is] no fear, nothing, don’t worry about anything. It will come in its place as soon as possible, as soon as you like [to have] it. It is your liking. If you don’t like it, don’t like it. Still you are with Me.”


Liberation from the Veil occurs as we lift up our consciousness and conquer our ignorance with and by the Self, the God-within, who acts as our friend. [BhG.VI.5-6] Until we want to acknowledge the God-within us and reach similitude, a resonance with the God-within us, we are on our own. Indeed, you might say that the One has surely cooked up an amazing challenge, a superb beautiful and terrifying ‘play’ — and this awe inspiring, temporal illusory holographic universe is but one jewel in the vastness of Its Creation.
BhG.X.42: “I continually support this entire universe with a single fraction of Myself.”

Wise men do not grieve
Imagine looking at the world through the eyes of the Creator, the One. What would you see? In the old made-for-television version of the Mahabharata, by B.R. Chopra, we begin to notice that Krishna is always smiling. No matter what is happening, Krishna is smiling! Obviously, as portrayed by the writers of the film, Krishna knows something we don’t.

BhG.II.30: “The eternal inviolable Self, is in the body of all, therefore, Arjuna, you should not mourn for any being.”


BhG.XIII.29: The one who sees that all actions and deeds are done, performed exclusively by Prakriti, our matrix and material nature, and thus sees that he is not the Doer, that one sees.
Boris Marjanovic translates Abhinavagupta’s comment as, “The yogin who with firm conviction thinks – ‘It is Prakriti which acts and not me!’ – such a yogin, even if completely engaged in activity, in reality does not act…such a yogin is not a doer.”


Prakriti is the matrix, our material nature and her creative powers are termed shakti-maya in Sanskrit and consist of the three gunas (sattva, rajas, tamas), the modes or qualities into which all aspects of the manifested temporal illusory hologram can the categorized. Seated within is the observer and experiencer, Purusha, which is sentient but inactive, and remains free, untouched, unaltered by any influence of the gunas. Purusha “possesses the power of consciousness and therefore, the presence of Purusha is necessary for the functioning of the intellect, the mind or any other modification of Prakriti.” [B. Marjanovic]


Both Purusha and Prakriti are eternal; they have no beginning and no end. “The union of Purusha and Prakriti is responsible for bringing creation into existence.” [ibid] Prakriti performs the action, generates endless variations of form, differentiated sense perception – but is unconscious. Purusha is conscious, and observes and enjoys Prakriti’s dance.

Samkhya and the Two Birds
The conception of manifestation being created by the union, one might say joint venture, of Purusha and Prakriti originates in Samkhya. The origin of Samkhya is unknown and as one Indian scholar puts it, “The origin of Indian philosophical systems is almost enveloped in darkness. Samkhya shares the same fate.” [P.Chakravarti]


Samkhya is critical of Vedic sacrifices, as Krishna is in the Bhagavad Gita; and may have been a reaction against Vedic ritual. Samkhya emphasizes knowledge of Purusha and Prakriti over ritual sacrifice. Unless and until we have a full understanding of Purusha as the observer and Prikriti’s gunas, we cannot hope to grasp the metaphysics in the Sanskrit texts.


In the Rig Veda I.164.20, there is a traditional parable tale thought to be the seed of Samkhya. “Two birds with graceful wings, close companions, embrace the same tree. One of them eats the same fruit. The other not eating, simply looks on, all the time.” [Translation by R.L. Kashyap] Here we see the metaphor of the two birds, one acting, doing, eating as the manifesting matrix Prakriti — and the other ‘simply looks on’ as the observer Purusha who doesn’t need to eat.


This story is also found in the Shvetashvatara Upanishad IV.6 and the Mundaka Upanishad III.1.1-3. The Mundaka Upanishad is the wisdom taught by the great Rishi Angiras to his disciple Saunaka. The Mundaka is densely packed with the highest wisdom-knowledge for Liberation and written in exquisite inspiring verse. It has become one of my favourite beloved Sanskrit texts; and I prefer the translation by Swami Muni Narayana Prasad to others, but reading multiple translations is always of value.


Swami Muni Narayana Prasad’s translation is lovely, illuminating and speaks of the two birds as fast-bound companions, one eating delicious berries while the other looks on. The bird that observes, Purusha, is said to be the witnessing ‘I’ and always remains “the same, changeless, is free from all attachments, unaffected by the inconstancy of the other.” This witness is the same in all of us. It is an apparent portion of the consciousness of the One observing — and is the God-Consciousness that “witnesses everything that takes place in the whole world, in all the worlds. It sees everything is taking place within Itself, as activated by Itself.”


Observing Prakriti’s Dance
Life is the relationship between Purusha and Prakriti, the dance of the observer observing the observed, as Krishnamurti has said. Purusha is the observer, and Prakriti the matrix. Swami Muni Narayana Prasad feels that one is “meaningless without the other. In the absence of life, the existence of the self, self-enquiry and even the existence of God, would all be meaningless.” The two birds are perched in the same tree. God loves and needs us, just as we need and love God.


Swami Muni Narayana Prasad: “Every action that takes place anywhere in any of the worlds is but a part of the self-unfoldment of the one creative urge of this one Consciousness. Realizing this one dares not think of oneself as the doer (karta) of any action. The all-witnessing Purusha, the all controller (Isha), is the one doer (karta) of all actions.” It is only our ignorance, as long as we are Veiled in forgetting, that deludes us into thinking we do anything!


BhG. XIII.21: The Purusha (Spirit) abiding in Prakriti, material nature, enjoys and experiences the gunas, which are born from Prakriti, the matrix of material nature. Attachment to the products, the evolutes of Prakriti’s three gunas is the cause, source and instrument of rebirth into good and not good wombs.


Beginningless & Endless
Swami Lakshmanjoo: “Prakriti and Purusha are both beginingless and endless…all the objective world is produced by Prakriti. …Prakriti has made this for Purusha to taste so that he will be entangled in the wheel of repeated births and deaths. …She creates this for Purusha. As soon as Purusha gets awareness of Prakriti that ‘Prakriti is dancing for me,’ he will become mukta [liberated]. …As long as Prakriti is not aware that Purusha knows, she dances, she kicks him, she plays him, from one birth to another birth, from another birth to another birth, whatever she likes. …But as soon as Purusha becomes aware…then you will become jivan mukta [living liberated].”


BhG. XIII.22: The witness (upadrasta) in the body is the Great Lord (maheshvaras) and the Supreme Self (paramatma), the supporter, experiencer, and enjoyer.


Thus we learn that the Oneness dwells within us all, in the Heart observing and enjoying all. The Sanskrit texts say that once we realize the Truth of this ‘play’ and Recognize our Real Self as the One doing the creating, in that sublime astonishing moment of our awakening, no matter what condition of life we have been existing in — we are Free (Moksha), liberated from Samsara, the ocean of repeating death & birth. We are “not born again. [BhG, XIII.23]”

“Having reached this impermanent unhappy world…”
Swami Lakshmanjoo calls this earth plane ‘the plane of mortality.’ Krishna tells his friend Arjuna “having attained, reached (prapya) this impermanent and unhappy world” [BhG. IX.33], he should devote himself to the One. The translation by J.A.B. van Buitenen is thus: “Reduced to this passing world of unhappiness, embrace Me!” On a personal note, I remain puzzled by the verb prapya, meaning attained or reached. I wonder how or why I have ‘attained’ this impermanent and unhappy world; but as yet, frankly I have no resolution to my puzzlement. I only know that as Swami Lakshmanjoo says, all questions disappear when we are in the Oneness.


In his commentary on the Bhagavad Gita XIII.22-24, Swami Lakshmanjoo again takes a rather blunt tone saying, “Anyone who fortunately understands what is Purusha and what is Prakriti, and what are these gunas by which I was kicked by, played by Prakriti, sarvatha (in whatever way), if he knows, if he comes to this understanding, then he remains away, he remains aloof from Prakriti. He does not allow Prakriti to touch him! …He is established in the state of Parabhairava and he is mukta [liberated].”

“Purusha is actually dependent on Prakriti…and he enjoys the three gunas (three gunas means just that worldly creation)…And as long as Purusha is attached to the gunas, the three gunas (sattva, rajas, and tamas), it conducts for him numberless births and deaths…because he deserves that. And he never gets away from this, this grabbing [i.e., attachment by which] he is caught.”

Swami Lakshmanjoo makes a distinction between the Purusha who is caught up into Prakriti’s performance and the one who is witnessing [Upadrashta], saying that one in above the entanglement and one is caught. “Upadrashta, [the one] who is witnessing, what is going on, what is this damn thing going on, [i.e., happening] to Purusha, and he is tossed [around] with Prakriti…He [the witness] sees, He observes, He witnesses…and He thinks how far [Purusha] is entangled by Prakriti…and He [the One, Parabhairava] is also existing in deha [body] and observing what is happening to that [Purusha]. Both are [there]; one is above that and one is entangled in Prakriti.”

http://metaphysicalmusing.com/gita%20XVIII/gitaxviii-16-01.htm

The Field & the Knower of the Field
In BhG. XIII.26 Krishna describes the relationship of the field [kshetra] to the knower of the field [kshetrajña]. Swami Lakshmanjoo: “Whatever happens in this world, kshetra and kshetrajña is conducting in each and every respect. Kshetra means this body, kshetrajña is soul. Which soul? Limited soul (Purusha). And limited soul is conducted by unlimited soul side by side in the body. [The unlimited soul] also whips [the limited soul]; He takes the whip and sees if he has some capacity for learning [saying], ‘let him rise, let him rise.’ The unlimited soul pushes him and he rises.” Thus we understand that the God-within us is encouraging us in various ways.

Swami Lakshmanjoo (from 1978) on Liberation from Prakriti’s mischief: “If you become slave of Prakriti, you are gone. When you follow these, follow the movements of these five sense organs, i.e., five senses of cognition and five senses of action, along with the touch of these three gunas, you are just sheep, you are just carried by Prakriti. And this is that individual being who is governed by Prakriti. He creates this, he creates this universe. Because everybody has his own universe in his mind; you have your own world, you have your own world, you have your own world. And that world you have created by combination of these…by following your nature. When you command Prakriti, then you don’t create your world. Once you have not created your world, you are free, you have no rebirth. You won’t come…you won’t be entangled in repeated births and deaths.”


I find the above quoted explanation to be very clear — and so interesting that Swami Lakshmanjoo repeated the phrase “you have your own world” three times, for my life experience certainly would agree with this. Does it not all too often feel that each one of us is living in our own individual world? One cannot imagine what another person sees when they enter a room, or feels when they first meet anyone. Communication between us humans entwined in our self-created holograms, remains elusive and mysterious at best.


The idea that ‘we are not the Doer’ is repeated in BhG. XIV.19: When the observer sees that there is no other Doer than the gunas, and he knows what is higher than, transcends the gunas, he attains My state of Being (madbhavam). Swami Lakshmanjoo says that “there is one [person] in lakhs (100,000) of people, there is some fortunate person who always observes that I am above the cycle of the three gunas…I am not touched or painted, whitewashed, whitewashed by the three gunas…he enters the state of Parabhairava.”


Direct intuitive perception!
Samkhya pervades the Sanskrit metaphysics and the sage Kapila is generally thought of as its founder. “Kapila, the great sage, is regarded as the propounder of Samkhya. In the Samkhya tradition, he is held to be the first among the wise and he appears at the beginning of each cycle of creation. [Pulinbihari Chakravarti]” Kapila is said to be the foremost of the siddhas, and endowed with perfection from the very moment of his birth. Kapila assumed a form by dint of his supernatural power and “had no physical body and thus cannot be regarded as an historical person. [Ibid.]”
The Mahabharata says that Kapila was the incarnation of fire [Agni], also the light residing in the orb of the Sun, and one of the mind-born sons of the god Brahman. There is a wonderful collection, ‘The Sankhya Aphorisms of Kapila’ that I have found to be clearly stated, inspiring and enlightening. [The word Samkhya is spelled both ways because of the Sanskrit letter involved.] Here are a few of my shortened notes on Kapila’s splendid astute aphorisms:


The true sense of bondage is non-discrimination. The bondage of the soul is merely verbal. Bondage resides in the mind and not in the soul — it is merely a reflection, like the redness of [pellucid] crystal [when a red rose is near it]. [Ignorance of delusion] can be removed by nothing short of direct intuitive perception! The origination of the diversified [world of sense] is that from which has no difference. The subtle body consists of light. The soul abandons the idea of its being Nature [Prakriti]. Live alone!

Emancipation is not a manifestation of Joy! Paradise is no security against transmigration. Moksha is not achieved by a counsel of heavenly people. The body is a site for experience. The subtle body attends the soul even during the periodic annihilations of the world.


Samkhya Karika of Ishvara Krishna
The book best known and most easily accessed, the Samkhya Karika of Ishvara Krishna, is now a free PDF online. This is said to be a compendium of the vast literature on Samkhya. The scholar P. Chakravarti says “the huge treatise of Kapila was not possible to master even in hundreds of years; hence the veteran teachers of Samkhya for the sake of benefit to their pupils dealt with the teachings of Kapila in the short treatises of their own.” Ishvara Krishna composed this compendium in an effort to clarify and simplify what had become clouded by “terse and subtle reasonings” in arguments from opposing sects. There is a Chinese version entitled ‘Gold-Seventy’ or in Sanskrit, Kanaka-Saptati.


There are many intriguing verses in Ishvara Krishna’s Samkhya Karika, for example: Regarding the three gunas, the Rajas attribute serves no useful purpose inasmuch as it energizes both Sattva and Tamas attributes which by themselves, are absolutely inert and as such incapable of performing any function.

Of the sense organs, the Mind possesses the nature of both the sensory and motor organs. It is the deliberating principle. The subtle body is incapable of having any experience without a physical body of six sheaths; that is why it migrates. The subtle body migrates as it is tinged with dispositions of virtue and vice, knowledge and ignorance, passion and dispassion, power and weakness. Impelled by the purpose of Purusha, this subtle body appears in different roles, like a dramatic performer, by means of association with instrumental causes and their effects, through the all-embracing power of Nature [Prakriti’s maya-shakti].

Purusha is never bound, nor is he released, nor does he migrate. It is Prakriti, being the support of manifold creation, that migrates, is bound and is released. Thus, from the practice of Truth, is produced the wisdom in the form: ‘I am not,’ ‘nothing is mine,’ and ‘not-I,’ which is final, pure on account of the absence of error and absolute knowledge. Doubt and falsity are the two impurities of wisdom.

The one (Purusha) thinks: She, Prakriti, ‘has been seen by me’ and therefore loses all interest [in her performance]; the other (Prakriti) thinks ‘I have been seen’ and ceases to act further. Therefore, even though if there is still connection, there is no motive for further evolution. With the absence of the bondage of erroneous knowledge, enjoyment of sense objects also cannot be there. Because of the momentum of the impulse of subliminal impressions, the Sprit continues to inhabit the body for a while.


The Rishis & The Essence of the Exact Reality
For millennia, Rishis, Seers and enlightened masters have gone deep into the Heart and all found the same experience: They did not exist. There is only the One. The One has been given 1000s of names, and yet is nameless. The One is infinite forms, and yet is formless. The experiences of those who came into the Presence that always exists within us all, found its way into countless expressions, systems of cosmology, metaphysics and philosophies.
No matter how you slice up the holographic pie, no matter how many terms describe the aspects of the One as it manifests through the Matrix in Time & Space, there is only the One.

When you become weary of learning metaphysical concepts that have evolved over the centuries, think of the enlightened genius Kashmir Shaivite, Abhinavagupta, who in his ‘Paramarthasara, the Essence of the Exact Reality’ has said:
“All Such Theories are Mere Suppositions & Imaginary Concepts of Thinkers”
 

Once you begin to consider the nature of your relationship to the universe and the origin of both, it is quite natural to want to systematize your findings to both share and clarify. Ever since we lost the memory of our absolute nature, we began this process. Abhinavagupta states that all such theories are “mere suppositions and imaginary concepts of thinkers.”
 Why? Because – “No diversity is the real truth.”
 

Paramartharsara: 27. The Buddhist thinkers maintain that the constant flow of momentary consciousness is the only reality. The Vedic thinkers say that the single self, penetrating inside pervading, directing and governing all minds, is the ultimate reality.
 Some Upanishadic thinkers take the power of animation as the ultimate truth, while other such thinkers say that one universal Atman, shining as all phenomena, is the only reality. Some other thinkers take either the psycho-physical organism or the generalities or lastly the individual as the ultimate truth.
 But all such theories are merely dialectical speculations useful in discussions and debates. None among such entities has a real existence, as all these are mere suppositions and imaginary concepts of thinkers.
 28. In the same way that matters like piety and sin, heaven and hell, birth and death, pleasure and pain… and so on, do never exist in reality, but appear in the Self on account of delusion (maya).
 No diversity is the real truth. Its existence is simply apparent. It shines in the Atman as reflections shine in a mirror. All this appears to be a bonded being on account of the delusion caused by maya.

As I consider Abhinavagupta’s enlightenment to be beyond question, I feel I can draw certain conclusions from his emphatic statements:
*There is Oneness and the appearance of multiplicity.
*The domain of Prakriti is the ‘appearance’ of transitory multiplicity in the form of the temporal illusory hologram produced by the matrix, meaning Prakriti’s shakti-maya gunas.
*Therefore the mechanics of this multiplicity can be described in many diverse ways depending on the consciousness of the experiencer.

Threads in the Labyrinth
 Throughout the four Cycles of Time we all have recognizable differences in the way we perceive life. Our holograms are not identical, as I am sure you have noticed. Thus when any one of us goes traveling into the inner worlds of our one Soul, we all come up with our own filtered versions of how the universe is constructed and manifested. None of which are any more real than the temporal illusory hologram itself – and none of which is any more real than another. However some do have a higher consciousness and are more useful than others, meaning they may guide us Home.
 

Each is a product of the individual’s consciousness based on his or her state of balance among the three gunas. Prakriti’s guna-maya manifestations are all a part of the illusion of multiplicity – even when they are grand and enlightening illusory thoughts. If it is true, as Abhinavagupta says, that all such theories are “mere suppositions and imaginary concepts of thinkers” then why should we read these wonderfully arcane and often complex metaphysical systems that take great pains to delineate the mechanics of consciousness? Metaphysical systems are the threads in the Labyrinth that lift our consciousness into the higher frequencies, out of the mundane and into the sacred.

The words of these ancient seers are in the higher waveform frequencies that we want to be in. Immersing yourself in their consciousness through reading their thoughts will bring our consciousness closer to theirs. You will still have to ‘experience’ what you read. Just reading or hearing the truth is not enough. You must intuitively perceive, know, and feel these teachings in your deepest being. They must become a part of you – experientially. This is why so many diverse forms of spiritual practices have developed. These practices are the effort that allows you to make Wisdom-Knowledge a reality, the Real that has power to release you from the bondage of delusion.
 A huge piece of this ‘bondage of delusion’ is thinking that we are the Doer. However, having immersed our consciousness in Krishna’s sublime liberating wisdom and Samkhya, we now know that, “We are not the Doer!” We are neither as he cajoles Arjuna, blockheads or fools, in Sanskrit durmatis.

A rare video of Ramana Maharshi and a photo of the young Swami Lakshmanjoo with Ramana Maharshi

Video: Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi: Rare video
Mar 25, 2016
Tuesday, September 1, 1946
“The ashram of Saint Ramana of Arunachala drew crowds of devotees on September the 1st to mark the completion of 50 years since Ramana first set foot on the sacred soil of this historic mountain shrine. From far and near they flocked for darshan of the holy saint who by the severest austerities and profound contemplation has attained spiritual wisdom and serenity unique in the country. Thousands draw comfort from his mere presence for he neither preaches nor (blames?) setting at ease all who come, by the essential goodness he radiates to all around. A good man in a troubled world.…


He adhered to a punctual routine which included going out for a stroll twice a day. At these times, he would walk up on the slopes of his beloved Arunachala hill, and if any attachment to any thing could be said of him, it was surely an attachment to the hill. He loved it and said it was God himself – the spiritual heart or center of the earth. He seemed to be never so happy as when wandering around its slopes and once remarked that there was not one spot on the hill where he had not set his foot. He also encouraged devotees to walk around the eight mile circumference of the hill as it has been well known from ancient times to be a very potent spiritual exercise.

Generally the Maharshi appeared to be indifferent, a witness to what was going on around him. Nevertheless he was always aware of what was happening and seemed to be very particular about certain matters. First of all he insisted that he should be accessible to devotees and visitors at all times. Even on the day of his death when he had no strength to even hold his head erect, he asserted that devotees should not be prevented from seeing him. He was also very keen that visitors should be fed immediately upon their arrival and food should be well cooked and nutritious. He participated (in) and supervised meal preparations for many years. The Maharshi was adamant that no preferences should be given to him in way of food or conveniences. If it is good for me it must be good for all he would say when some special food preparation or medicine was offered him. He would then make the attendants distribute the items to everyone present before he would take it himself.

In his company one would notice a total absence of distinction between men and women of different castes and creeds, of different races and religions, between a prince and a peasant, an ascetic and a householder. His equality extended far beyond human beings and embraced even plants and animals. His love for and affinity with animals can be compared only to that wonderful child of Christ, Saint Francis of Assisi. They all came to him – dogs, snakes, monkeys, crows, deer, peacocks, chipmunks and cows to name a few. Their silent language was known to him and when he spoke, they understood and obeyed. He arbitrated the monkeys’ quarrels. He has been known to speak to the wild leopards and cobras and the whole animal kingdom accepted him as their guardian and defender.

All felt his grace and acted with intelligence in his presence. He considered every living creature as equal. Those who came to him deserved an equal share to the land and resources of Ramana ashramam. He often mentioned that this was their territory all along. We humans have just come and occupied it. If they could speak they would claim their rights as well. Besides this, he maintained that every creature from man down to the smallest insect was an equal manifestation of the supreme self, the imperishable one. And even an animal can progress spiritually and on rare occasions, attain liberation. This was demonstrated in the life of the cow, Lakshmi. For over 20 years she lived in the ashram and exhibited a rare devotion to Bhagavan and intelligence in all matters. Bhagavan fully reciprocated her gentle devotion and on her last day when her end was near …

He often said that the true teaching was in silence. But this does not mean verbal expositions also were not given. And although he authorized many different methods of spiritual practice he however laid the greatest emphasis on the path of self-inquiry. The first and foremost of all thoughts that arise in the mind is the primal I thought. It is only after the rise or origin of the I thought that innumerable other thoughts arise. Search by means of a deeply introverted mind wherefrom this I arises. If we go inward questing for the source of the I the I topples down and immediately another entity will reveal itself proclaiming I-I. Even though it also emerges saying I it does not connote the ego but the one perfect existence.
People of all religions came to him and he never advised any of them to change their faith or abandon their creeds. He answered all (their) questions patiently.”

My Journey to Lakshmanjoo

http://metaphysicalmusing.com/articles/shaivism/journeylaksh.htm

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on A rare video of Ramana Maharshi and a photo of the young Swami Lakshmanjoo with Ramana Maharshi

Bhagavad Gita II.60-69: “…from the death of the spirit (buddhi/intelligence) one perishes.”

VSF: When one knows the verses of the Bhagavad Gita well enough, you will recognize the teaching of the Ribhu Gita and Ramana Maharshi. For example, Krishna tells Arjuna: “Seek Me!” This is the turning of our focus away from the external temporal illusions we are creating back into the Self within the Heart, the Atma, the eternal Consciousness we came from.

I have always been inspired by the translation of the Bhagavad Gita by J.A.B van Buitenen. However, I do often find myself wanting to compare his translations of certain words with other translators such as Winthrop Sargeant and the commentary of Kashmir Shaivite Abhinavagupta. Van Buitenen has his own simple clarity and a unique way of putting the text into English.

Ramana Mahrashi teaches us to immerse our consciousness in the Self, Atma, Brahman, and eventually the Mind that generates the illusions of thought, and thus form, will subside on their own. Tonight I turned to a page in the van Buitenen translation and found this:

Bhagavda Gita II.60-69
Krishna as the One Self is speaking to his friend the warrior Arjuna

Even a wise man who tries, Kaunteya (Arjuna is the son of Kunti), the whirling senses carry off the mind by force. One should sit down, controlling one’s senses, yoked, and intent on Me, for firm stands the insight of him who has his senses under control.

When a man thinks about sense objects, an interest in the develops. From this interest grows desire (kama), from desire anger (krodha); from anger rises delusion (moha), from delusion loss of memory, from loss of memory the death of the spirit (buddhi/intelligence), and from the death of the spirit one perishes.

When he experiences the objects of the senses that neither love nor hate and are under his control, and thus has himself under control, he attains to serenity. In a state of serenity all his sufferings cease, for in one whose mind is serene, singleness of purpose is soon fixed.

The one who is not yoked (in union with the God-within, the Self, Atma, Brahman) has no singleness of purpose; the one who is not yoked has no power to bring things about; and he who does not bring things about knows no serenity — and how can a man without serenity know happiness?

For a mind that is amenable to the ranging senses carries off a man’s capacity for insight, as the wind a ship at sea. Therefore the insight of him is firm who keeps his senses entirely away from their objects, strong-armed prince.

The controlled man wakes in what is night for all creatures, as it is night for the seer of vision when the other creatures are awake.

Non-Attachment in the Hologram: Remove the Senses from Their Objects /Your own Armageddon

This is the work that is to be done and no one can do it for you – you have to walk this lonesome valley by yourself. I don’t care what any guru or teacher promises you – you have to do this alone. And thank God for that! If anyone really could touch you with a magic wand and bestow enlightenment on you, then you would never be free. You would be indebted to them forever.
 
This is the Divine Play of God veiling Its Self in time and space, in matter and delusion, to emerge and realize Its Self once again. The game is one of Self-realization and liberation (moksha) – and for that, you have to work alone. This work will be the hardest thing you have ever done in your life, I promise, and will be your own private personal Armageddon.
 
I am not sugarcoating this because that would deceive you. But I do give you my word that this work and the Becoming in close alignment and ‘partnership’ with the God within you will be the most fulfilling, lasting, meaningful, and blissful experience you will ever have. It is the reason for Life. God veils Its Self in mankind to Become, to search for Truth, and discovers that all along God dwells in the Heart of each and everyone of us.
 
When you realize that you are not the five senses and their impulses which send the gunas spinning, when you begin to learn non-attachment from desire and possessions and egotistical cravings – then you will be free from longing and delusion.

Krishna tells Arjuna (II.69-72) that this is the divine state (brahmi sthitis) and if you remain fixed in this consciousness at the time of your death you reach the Bliss of God (brahmannirvanam).
 
The struggle against your mind
 
Towards the end of the Mahabharata after the great war is over, Krishna tells Arjuna’s brother, Yudhisthira, that the time has come to ‘prepare to carry out the struggle against your mind, and by dint of abstraction and the merit of your own Karma, you must reach the other side of the mysterious and unintelligible.’

Yudhisthira will not need any ‘weapons or friends or attendants’ because the ‘battle’ is to be ‘fought alone and single handed…’ (M.N.Dutt; Ashvamedhika Parva Ch.12, 13-14).

So it is with each of us.

http://metaphysicalmusing.com/gita/krishna3.htm

The Ribhu Gita I.11

Brahman, the space transcendence, is seated in the body as Heart-space giving rise to elemental space, in which the Universe is lodged. At the time of the universal dissolution everything is resolved into the Prima Source in a retrogressive fashion.

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Bhagavad Gita II.60-69: “…from the death of the spirit (buddhi/intelligence) one perishes.”

Satya…Truth / And the Twilight

The Truth is …
There is only the ONE, one Soul, one SELF, the ATMA, Brahman.
This is the magnificent energy we all sense that as the Sufis say lies beneath “the curtain of each atom.”
The substratum of All.
Like an amazing infinite imperishable immutable electromagnetic energy.
This energy, which we tend to term God, creates the Universe through us and all the other beings that exist throughout all the galaxies.

This One SELF, ATMA is who & what we really are.
The Sanskrit says clearly: TAT TVAM ASI.
Meaning “That Thou Art.”
You, every thing and every one are this magnificent energy.

So every living being is expressing their piece of God and creating endlessly through the Mind and the five senses.
God has so much to express – a vastness incomprehensible to the human mind.

When we train our consciousness to withdraw from five sense perception, multiplicity, and move into the Heart — we find our Source, we find Bliss Consciousness, our Home, who & what we really are.

Until then we flounder in the limited realms of our own delusions, the frail ego, the temporal experiences that always come to an end. In the sacred Sanskrit the words for pleasure & pain are often written as one word.

Of course, I can tell you this, you can read it in books, or listen to enlightened teachers — but it will have to be experienced by you! You will experience God’s Love. At the end of your journey there is nothing but Bliss and LOVE.

GOD is LOVE!

We are in the closing years of a Cycle of Time, the Kali Yuga. In the first cycle, the Satya Yuga, the cycle of Truth, everyone knew we were projections of the One, the Self ATMA, the electromagnetic field that is the substratum of All. We were in harmony with Truth.

By the time we find ourselves descended into this fourth cycle, and its closing Twilight period, most have lost their connection to Source. Thus Truth is far away from the majority. Individual behaviors become more confused, deluded, and destructive.

The Creative Cosmogonic Forces use this degenerate period to “clear the field” so that a new Satya Yuga can take place.

Symptoms of the Kali Yuga
Writing itself is a symptom of the Kali Yuga. Human beings have been living on planet Earth for 100s of 1000s of years before we have any record of the written word.

Down through the ages, ancient wisdom was orally transmitted and eventually written down in Sanskrit around 500 BC. These sacred texts give us some idea of the other three cycles of time. Originally orally transmitted, the texts were faithfully memorized and handed down from generation to generation. We no longer possess such an amazing command of memory. Imagine memorizing complete books! What we have available to us now in the Kali Yuga as the sacred texts written in the Sanskrit script was transcribed much later than it was composed – meaning spoken.
 
Some of these ancient texts accurately predict the conditions we are now experiencing. Remember these are predictions from well over 6,000 years ago – before the advent of writing and written history! The ancients who made these prophecies considered them to be abnormal, unheard-of, and outrageous.
 
From the Sanskrit texts the Vishnu Purana and the Linga Purana:
Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves.
Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly. They will cease to protect the people.
Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages.
There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.
Fetuses will be killed in the wombs of their mothers.
People will prefer to choose false ideas.
Precooked food will be readily available!

http://metaphysicalmusing.com/articles/early_articles/symptoms.htm

Everything we are experiencing can be known through this understanding. Our rulers are evil. They have completely lost their connection to the God-within them and even have decided that the “useless eaters” will serve them best dead. Genocide.

This too will pass.

God is LOVE!

We meet in the Heart,
Susan

Ulladu Narpadu: Ramana Maharshi – Reality in Forty 40 Verses – Supplement – Advaita-Vedanta

Samaneri Jayasāra – Wisdom of the Masters

This is a reading of the SUPPLEMENT to Reality in Forty Verses for meditation. Translated by Prof. K. Swaminathan This supplement consisting of a second forty verses was added to the original “Reality in Forty Verses”. So indifferent to authorship was Bhagavan that he did not write all those supplementary verses himself. When he came upon a suitable one he used it – mostly translations from Sanskrit – and when not, he made one. The verses eliminated from the original forty verses were included in the supplement. These eighty verses are the most comprehensive exposition of the Bhagavan’s teaching.

E.M. Nicolay: Meditation and prayer are divine gifts that assist you to raise your vibrational frequency in a direct and immediate manner. The purpose of meditation is realignment with the higher self — a reboot of the relationship you have with your Essence — allowing you to raise your vibrational energy so you create a portal of communication between you, your Soul, your Guides and, ultimately, the God source.
 
Meditation and prayer truly may be see as one in the same. That is to say that meditation is in fact prayer, and prayer in its ideal form is a meditation. The practice of meditation or prayer at a minimum of once a day acts as a direct means of reinforcing the balance between your physical and energetic centers (chakras). In addition, prayer and meditation align you with your higher self, tuning you into your Essence path and continually balancing the communication between the spiritual realms and you.

“Although I am not involved in any manner and am always free, I weild my power—called MAYA; become covered with ignorance, appear full of desires, seek their fullfilment, grow restless, project favorable and unfavorable environments, am born and reborn as individuals, until growing wiser I seek a teacher and sage, learn the truth from him, put it into practice and finally become absolved. All this goes on in My pure, uncontaminated, ever free absolute intelligence … My power is too vast to be described.”

David Icke deep in the Spiritual / The Objects of the Senses: There is No ‘out there’ out there! / Fallen

Life is a Rollercoaster – You Just Gotta Ride It! By David Icke

David talks deep spiritual Truth in plain & simple language.
Very Advaita Vedanta & the Ribhu Gita.

The Objects of the Senses: There is No ‘out there’ out there!

Why does our temporal illusory holographic world of multiplicities appear so solid, dense, and real to us?

*Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 14

Notions of heat and cold, pain and pleasure arise only from contact of the senses with their objects – they are impermanent.

The endless polarities we all experience throughout our lives are entirely brought about by the transmission of signals to the brain via the five senses.

Our sense organs (sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing) are individually preconditioned by previous data and experiences from many lifetimes, throughout the Four Cycles of Time in this and other Manvantaras. Our own unique previous responses to such transmitted data can be defined as ‘actions’ that leave behind a tendency or impression in the subconscious mind.

How we perceive the temporal illusory holographic world, and thus our character, is the sum accumulation of these acquired tendencies. If it often seems to you that everyone is living in a world of their own – in fact, THEY ARE! Perception is reality.

As these signals enter our brain they relay information on the particular waveforms received and our brain then arranges these signals into our illusory perception of them as ‘solid’ objects.

Once these signals are perceived and identified by the brain, they are then translated, judged, and classified as belonging to one category of a polarity or another – meaning good/bad, desirable/undesirable, hot/cold, etc.

These translations, judgments, and classifications are wholly arbitrary and based solely on the current consciousness of the person receiving them at the moment the particular signals are received. One man’s delight is anothers misery.

These material sensations are impermanent. What is desirable in one moment quickly becomes undesirable in the next. This is the nature of a polarity universe. We created the world to enjoy it, but not to become stuck in our creation, trapped by our desires for all eternity. In fact the original meaning of ‘sin’ in the ancient Sanskrit texts is attachment.

Why would an eternal being who has the power to continually create everything want to remain stuck, trapped in, and attached to Its own self-created temporal material sensations of illusory objects, which in reality are only electromagnetic signals transmitted to and translated by the brain.

The world is in your brain. There is no ‘out there’ — out there, meaning the external hologram is illusory, as well as temporal.

These material sensations are impermanent and have no direct contact with the eternal Soul-ATMAN. When you release your consciousness from all attachment to the temporal illusions produced by the contact of the senses on their objects, you open the Door to lasting Freedom.

This condition of non-attachment and the recognition of the mechanics of MAYA’s power to create illusion can only be achieved through self-mastery, total commitment, and watchfulness – and will invoke from the God within your Heart the very necessary revealed Grace-ANUGRAHA. There is no Knowledge without Grace and there can be no Grace without Knowledge. On the Razor’s Edge Path to Liberation-MOKSHA, Grace and Knowledge constantly interplay, entwined in Love in an ongoing exchange in the nectar sweet dance Home.

Become One with the ONE, and you become everything. You literally permeate every universe – that is why Divine Love is the ultimate Freedom.

Because I posted videos of this man that I have since taken down on my blog, I want those of you – who might be influenced by his ‘appearance’ of a loving enlightenment – to know the truth. Yet another lost soul has fallen and is using the amazing teachings of Advaita Vedanta and even Ramana Maharshi to feed his own ego and what seems to be a dangerous cult. Very sad. Even I was taken in. But he is not what he appears to be in the videos. Read and decide for yourself:
