What I found interesting was the link between the collective wisdom and the similarities between psychedelic imagery, mediation, and fractal geometry. Also the kaleidoscope of color and its patterns mirror the forms in mandalaâ€™s, stain glass windows, and the geomtric
structues found in churches, mosics, and monastary. The theme is universal. Our minds have the ability to tap into the one song of our universe -- uni-verse. It is noted in math, music and natures unfolding beauty. Karen Elkins

With few exceptions, the Mayan prophecy about the end of the cosmic cycle has been misinterpreted as predicting the actual physical destruction of humanity and the material world. This is similar to the misinterpretation of the term "apocalypse" by Christian fundamentalists, particularly the millions of American Christians who believe that at the time of this global destruction they will experience "rapture" and be united with Jesus.
The original and literal meaning of the term apocalypse, however, is not "destruction" but "lifting of the veil" or "revelation." It referred to the disclosure of secrets, hidden from the majority of humanity, to certain privileged persons.

Based on my research into n o n - o rd i n a r y s t a t e s o f consciousness, I believe in a radically different, more optimistic interpretation of t h e M a y a n p r o p h e c y. Instead of predicting a physical destruction of the material world, the Mayan prophecy might imply the possibility of a mass inner transformation of humanity -- the end of a world dominated by unbridled violence and insatiable greed. The Mayans were indeed accomplished astronomers. More than 2,000 years ago they noticed that the position of the winter solstice sun was slowly shifting toward an alignment with the galactic axis. This movement (precession) is caused by the wobble of the rotational axis of the earth. The Mayans concluded that major changes of cosmic proportions would occur at the time of this auspicious solar/galactic alignment that occurs only once every 25,800 years.
Bad womb experiences But in addition to making sophisticated astronomical
the ancient Mayans were also keen explorers of their inner worlds. We observations,
have ample pictorial evidence that they used various "technologies of the sacred" for this purpose, including the cactus Lophophora Williamsii (peyote), Psilocybe mushrooms, Salvia divinatorum (also known as diviner's sage), morning glory seeds, wild tobacco, balche (a fermented drink made from the tree Lonchocarpus longistylus and honey), and skin secretions of the toad Bufo marinus. For the last 50 years, I have used "technologies of the sacred" in order to research the modern human psyche and its potential for healing. In my case, this was clinical research with
psychedelics as well as numerous workshops and a training program using breathwork. In a supportive environment and under responsible guidance, individuals can use these techniques to experience states of consciousness that are both healing, informative, and transformational. I call these states "holotropic" -- meaning that they move us toward wholeness.
In holotropic states of consciousness, it is possible for individuals to obtain profound revelations about the universe -- far beyond the limits of their everyday imagination. And often, in such states, individuals can perceive a meaningful correlation between inner experiences and outer events. Although the modern, post-industrial consciousness tends to dismiss this idea,
perception of the universe as an organic whole in which
interconnected and the human psyche is a microcosm that reflects the m a c ro c o s m i s a t y p i c a l feature of profound inner experiences. In holotropic states the Mayans thus might have envisioned a meaningful connection between their inner experiences, terrestrial events, and the movements of celestial bodies.

Another key insight from my research is that individuals who enter holotropic states repeatedly will experience a profound
a process of psychospiritual "death" and transformation --
rebirth. This process can be "apocalyptic" in the truest sense of the word, in that it lifts the veil on their previously unseen spiritual nature.
And yet, for individuals to experience that lifting of the veil, or revelation, they must let go of their previous identities. And this "death" can provoke tremendous fear of destruction, a protracted struggle with existential issues, and violent resistance.

To look around at current events, one might conclude that our world is indeed falling apart. And whether or not this was predicted by ancient Mayan seers, we are clearly involved in a dramatic race for time that has no precedent in the entire history of humanity.
What is at stake is nothing less than the future of humanity and of life on this planet. Many of the people with

However, if a sufficient number of people undergo a process of deep inner transformation, we might reach a stage and level of consciousness at which we will deserve the proud name we have given to our species: homo sapiens sapiens (the wise people) -- and live in a new world that will have little resemblance to the old. By Dr. Stanislav Grof
whom I have worked saw in their holotropic visions humanity at a critical crossroad -- facing either collective annihilation or an evolutionary jump in consciousness of unprecedented nature and dimension. The philosopher-poet Terence McKenna put it very succinctly: "The history of the silly monkey is over, one way or another." We either undergo a radical transformation of our species or we might not survive. The final outcome of the crisis we are facing is ambiguous and uncertain; it lends itself to pessimistic or optimistic interpretation, and each of them can be supported by existing

Revision and Revisioning of Psychology: Legacy of Half a Century of Consciousness Research In the last five decades, various avenues of modern consciousness research have revealed a rich array of “anomalous” phenomena – experiences and observations that have undermined some of the generally accepted assertions of modern psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy concerning the nature and dimensions of the human psyche, the origins of emotional and psychosomatic disorders, and effective therapeutic mechanisms. Many of these observations are so radical that they question the basic metaphysical assumptions of materialistic science concerning the nature of reality and of human beings and the relationship between consciousness and matter. In this paper, I will summarize my observations and experiences from more than half a century of research into an important subgroup of nonordinary states for which I coined the name holotropic; these findings seriously challenge the existing scientific paradigms. Before I address this topic, I would like to explain the term holotropic that I will be using throughout this article. All these years, my primary interest has been to explore the healing, transformative, and evolutionary potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness and their great value as a source of new revolutionary data about consciousness, the human psyche, and the nature of reality.

Alex Grey Revealing the interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit that illuminate the core of each being, Alex Grey始s mystic paintings articulate the realms of consciousness encountered during visits to entheogenic heaven worlds. His painting Net of Being--inspired by a blazing vision of an infinite grid of Godheads during an ayahuasca journey. Net of Being is one of many images Grey has created that have resulted in a chain reaction of uses--from apparel and jewelry to tattoos and music videos--embedding these iconic works into our culture始s living Net of Being.
The Shulgins and their Alchemical Angels
The book explores how the mystical experience expressed in Alex Greyʼs work opens a new understanding of our shared consciousness and unveils the deep influence art can have on cultural evolution. The narrative progresses through a successive expansion of identity-from the self, to self and beloved, to self and community, world spirit, and cosmic consciousness, where bodies are transparent to galactic energies. Presenting over 200 images, including many never-beforereproduced paintings as well as masterworks such as St. Albert and the LSD Revelation Revolution and Godself, the book also documents performance art, live-painting on stage throughout the world, and the “social sculpture” called CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, that Grey cofounded with his wife and creative collaborator, artist Allyson Grey.

The first exhibition at Entheon will be the art of Alex Grey including all twenty-one Sacred Mirrors. When the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors is built, [target date 2020] the Sacred Mirrors and other works will be installed there and Entheon will feature visionary creativity by many artists from around the world. Entheon will be a three story public structure complete with an elevator, bathrooms, parking, a paved road with lighting... New technologies in 3D modeling and printing will be utilized to create the sculptural elements of this architectural design. Entheon will be an enduring legacy manifested through the contributions of visionaries from all over the globe, a sacred site supported by worldspirit. We ask for support and assistance of all kinds from the community.

DMT The Spirit Molecule My path into the world of psychedelic drug research was via the biology of spiritual experience. During my undergraduate years, two technologies were entering Western culture that provided reliable consistent entry into spiritual states of consciousness. These were Eastern meditation-based religions— especially Buddhism—and the psychedelic drugs—especially LSD. There were striking similarities between descriptions of psychedelic drug states and those resulting from particular meditation practices.
By Rick Strassman, M.D.
It seemed to me that to the extent the phenomenology of the two states overlapped, there must be a common associated biology. I began considering the question of what that biology might be. The most logical conclusion was that there is a substance in the brain with psychedelic properties: the brainâ€™s own LSD.
A chemical that the
body produces that elicits subjective effects like a psychedelic drug. It is also a chemical that the body would produce in response to specific meditation practices.
I began my search for such a substance with the pineal gland. The pineal gland has long been an object of reverence for esoteric physiologies due to its location at the crown of the skull, the seeming site of powerful spiritual experiences. In the early 1980s very little was known about this enigmatic non-brain organ in the middle of the human brain. Methods to accurately measure melatonin, its primary hormonal product, had just been developed. Researchers believed that abnormal melatonin physiology might underlie the psychiatric disorder winter depression/seasonal affective disorder. However, very little was known about the effects of melatonin in humans and early studies suggested that high doses were profoundly mind-altering. Perhaps melatonin was the endogenous psychedelic I was seeking. We performed an exhaustive study of human melatonin psycho-physiology in the mid-1980s and determined a role for melatonin in human body temperature regulation. However, even quite high doses of melatonin, ones that resulted in several times normal blood levels, were not psychoactive. It was around that time that I found out that a melatoninlike compound had already been determined to be both psychedelic and endogenous in man. This compound is DMT, dimethyltryptamine, a powerful psychedelic molecule found in every mammal investigated, including humans. It exists in hundreds if not thousands of plants, in particular abundance in Latin America. DMT is a relatively simple compound, only slightly larger in molecular weight than glucose or blood sugar. It is a chemical cousin of serotonin and melatonin and two simple metabolic steps separate dietary tryptophan and dimethyltryptamine. The lung makes DMT and DMT makes its way into the brain readily across the bloodbrain-barrier. The human gene that forms the enzyme finalizing synthesis of DMT has been identified, characterized, cloned, and inserted into mammalian cells where it produces a functional enzyme.
The visionary effects of DMT had already been discovered by Latin American indigenous cultures, one example of its use being the drinking of the psychedelic brew ayahuasca. Ayahuasca has been used for thousands of years and its consumption continues to grow. The presence of DMT was first determined in psychoactive Latin American plants in the 1940s, found to be powerfully psychoactive in humans in the 1950s, discovered in tissues of rodents in the 1960s, and soon thereafter seen in human tissues. Pure DMT was administered to many human volunteers safely in the 1950s, and 1960s and researchers hoped that DMT studies might shed light on human psychotic illness. The theory proposed that if DMT were involved with schizophrenia, for example, developing drugs to block DMT's effect might be helpful for the naturally occurring disorder. I decided to study DMT because it seemed a strong candidate for an endogenous chemical with profound psychological effects, some of which are seen in spiritual experience. We began our study in 1990 and finished in 1995. Several dozen volunteers received cumulatively about 400 doses of various strengths of DMT. Our model was a psychopharmacological one, and we collected a vast amount of biological and psychological data. I also took meticulous notes of our volunteers’ drug sessions. We published several papers in the scientific literature describing our studies and their results. Detailed accounts of subjects’ experiences are given in "DMT: The Spirit Molecule" (Park Street Press, VT; 2001), a book which led to the documentary about DMT with the same name (Warner Bros. Distributing; 2011). The psychological effects of DMT begin within a heartbeat or two of its intravenous injection. An intense inner physical and psychological pressure quickly builds, often accompanied by a distinctive sound. Volunteers were overwhelmed with a rush—a powerful feeling of excitation, stimulation, and pleasure. Initially, there are swirling buzzing geometric patterns overlaid upon the room, consisting of compellingly bright and intensely saturated colors. The rush culminates within a minute or so and transitions into what volunteers described as a disassociation of consciousness from the body.
Subjects then reported entry into a world of light. The colors had saturation and brightness unlike any that the volunteers had ever seen. Commonly the swirling colors appeared to congeal and caused subjects to see beings who oftentimes were aware of, expecting, glad to see, and established a relationship with the volunteer. Just as striking was the conviction on the part of the volunteers that what they had experienced in the DMT state possessed a reality as real as this reality, perhaps even more so. These peak effects went on for several minutes. Subjects could then begin speaking at 15-20 minutes and felt relatively normal by the half-hour point. Contrary to my original expectations, the enlightenment states that I had anticipated—loss of sense of self, no concepts, total immersive identification with the void, emptiness, or the white light were quite rare. After carefully considering models proposed by the three disciplines that guided my research—the psychoanalytic, psychopharmacologic, and Zen Buddhist—I began to search for other models: ones that posited the reality of a non-corporeal level of existence, with which we may interact in unique circumstances. While the contemporary physics world is considering this level of interaction by means of the instrumentation of their field, more developed models seem to use altered consciousness as methods to access those levels of reality. In particular, I found that the Old Testament’s notion of prophecy was highly salient. By prophecy as described in the Hebrew Bible (a more accurate term than Old Testament) I do not mean prediction, forecasting of the future. Rather, I mean a spiritual experience described in the text, any awareness of sights and sounds that had hitherto been invisible. Foretelling may occur, but is not necessary for the definition I am using. Ten Sephirot on the east wall of the Cordoba Synagogue, Spain
To the extent that experiences reported in the Hebrew Bible comport with those of my DMT volunteers, it suggests common biological processes are at work. This is not to say that those experiencing prophecy take drugs; rather, it suggests that biological processes brought on by DMT may be occurring in biblical prophetic states, too. There are pitfalls involved in tackling the Hebrew Bible as a spiritual text for highly-educated urbanized people. However, these are not necessarily insurmountable, and the effort to overcome these resistances may be worthwhile, simply in order to gain access to the contents of this powerful text. The Hebrew Bible is considered foundational by one-half of the Earth's population, and demonstrates several thousand years of durability and influence within all realms of society, including education, law, science, ethics, art, and economics. I have performed a careful analysis of reports of those who experience prophecy in the Hebrew Bible, and have compared these reports with those of my DMT volunteers. The resemblance is striking. All one needs to do is read the first chapter of Ezekiel to get a sense of the psychedelic nature of the prophetic experience. Both my DMT volunteers and those in a prophetic state witness brightly-colored, rapidly moving visions often containing sentient interactive beings who impart verbal information to them. Both sets of experients report movement through space, extremely powerful emotions, novel insights into the nature of reality, metaphysics, ethics. In particular, there exists a relationship between the beings and those who apprehend them. My review suggests that the biblical personages have a more highly-developed and more cogent understanding of, and ability to apply, their experiences compared to those in my DMT research. I am writing up these results for a new book, â€œThe Soul of Prophecy,â€? which I hope is published sometime in the first half of 2013. Two practical outcomes are suggested by proposing a common biological mechanism associated with both the DMT and prophetic states. To the extent that the Hebrew Bible is a text rendered by the prophetic mind, one wishing to plumb the depths of the text more deeply may be aided by putting the mind into as close to a prophetic state as possibleâ€”that is, through a carefully supervised psychedelic drug session. This model is already being applied in a more general manner by the research group at Johns Hopkins which has demonstrated mystical experiences following administration of the DMT-like drug, psilocybin. Thus, those who specifically wish to focus on the Hebrew Bible in a clinically circumscribed context could similarly avail themselves of these types of sessions.
The other possible outcome of my model is that the Hebrew Bible could serve as a psychedelic text to Westerners wishing to answer spiritual, ethical, and aesthetic questions raised by the psychedelic experience.
"DMT: The Spirit Molecule" Audiobook Now Available
The Hebrew Bible has the advantage of using uniquely Western terms, vocabulary, concepts, imagery, cultural icons, etc. That is, instead of Buddhism and shamanism that most young adults gravitate towards after a paradigm-shattering psychedelic experience, they could turn to the Hebrew Bible with its familiar notions. They would do this from a more mature psychedelicized perspective, unavailable previously. Such study, however, requires a translation and commentary of the text that remains true to its plain meaning, an extraordinarily difficult undertaking. The proposal that DMT and the prophetic state share both phenomenology and an underlying biology may provoke critical responses from the secular and religious communities. The pious might claim that such a theory relegates spiritual experience as a hallucination, the result of disordered brain chemistry. While the secular reader may reject any suggestion to learn from a text that has been misused for political and financial gain for so many centuries. Both objections miss the mark. Rather, I hope to stimulate discussion of ways in which faith and knowledge, spirituality and science, can both learn from each other, as well as find answers for questions concerning the nature of and source of both.

Trailer - DMT: The Spirit Molecule
By Rick Strassman, M.D. Photo by Wendy Kout Rick Strassman MD performed the first new human studies with psychedelic drugs in the US in over 20 years. His research involved the powerful naturally-occurring compound, DMT â€“ N,N-dimethyltryptamine. Led to this substance through his earlier study of the pineal gland as a potential biological locus for spiritual experiences, he administered several hundred doses of DMT to approximately 60 volunteers between 1990 and 1995. He wrote about this research in the popular book, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, which has sold over 100,000 copies, been translated into 12 languages, and has been made into an audio book. Â In addition, the DMT book inspired an independent documentary with the same name, picked up by Warner Bros. distributing in 2011, which is now widely available. With three distinguished collaborators, he coauthored Inner Paths to Outer Space, which looks more carefully at the common "other worlds" experience that volunteers frequently reported during his research. Since 1996, Dr. Strassman has been exploring models for the DMT effect focusing primarily on the Hebrew Bible concept of prophecy. Prophecy is a spiritual experience which takes into account the apparently external, free-standing nature of the DMT "worlds" observed in Dr. Strassman's research, in which one's sense of self is highly preserved and interactive. The biblical concept of prophecy provides an alternative to other models that borrow more heavily from Eastern religious systems, and those of Latin American shamanism. The notion of prophecy also deals directly with ethical and moral concerns, adding a crucial element to our ability to understand and integrate the content of the psychedelic experience. He is developing these ideas in his next book, The Soul of Prophecy, due to appear in 2013. http://www.rickstrassman.com/
ANY THOUGHT IS A HOLOGRAM When you form pictures in your mind you are creating a holographic image in your brain. When you dream you are creating a holographic image because your brain is capable of producing holograms. Visions and revelation coming into your mind are created in the form of a hologram.
By Gene Webb
Whatever we focus on crystalizes in our reality. Noted psychologist William Glasser observed that physiology and internal representation are totally linked. Everything we think, do and feel is generated by what happens inside us. It is impossible to choose a total behavior and not choose all its components. If, however, you want to change a total behavior, the way to do it is to choose to change its' doing and thinking components. The power of perspective is being able to reframe what we see, synthesizing knowledge from a variety of fields.
The minds eye (third eye) is the conception center of the brain. The dictionary defines this third eye as the â€œimaginationâ€?.
Everything we think, do and feel is generated by what happens inside us.
Consciousness is the construct of our reality. Consciousness is the spiritual awareness of Being, of allknowing, all-power, and all-presence. The many levels of sleep are altered states of the mind. Levels of dreaming are alpha, beta , delta, theta, and are also levels of consciousness. We have a subconscious mind that can be accessed through hypnosis and meditation.
L u c i d d re a m i n g i s similar to the movie Inception that used our brains' creative ability to access other dimensions.
Eye of Ra
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light. --Matthew 6:22
There are those who have Out of Body Experiences (OBE) and Near Death Experiences (NDE), states of mind that are so real that you may not know if you are in the body or out. Those who experience meditative states that are just as real to the brain as what we touch with our fingers are creating holographic images that are just a different state of the compression of light, the crystallized light we call physical objects. These objects of mass are light vibrating at a slower pace. Who or what is in control of the brain and these images (thought forms)? How do we utilize and maximize the hemispheres of the brain? One way is lucid dreaming where you enter your dream knowing you are awake in your dream, and can control things in this dimension without the fear and consequences of this harder physical world. Lucid dreaming is similar to the movie Inception that used our brains' creative ability to access other dimensions. Hormones and chemical reaction are forms of electromagnetic energy producing a cosmic spectrum of frequencies including visible light. The brain produces these chemical reaction to create real feelings from our subconscious holographic mind to give us direction for further creativity. Intellectual ideas are holographic images from our consciousness that are thoughts from the conception center (minds eye) of the brain. These creativity ideas are transferred to the hemispheres of the brain for the development of our thought processes.

The brain has other parts that contribute to creation of ideas and feelings. The hippocampus, the amygdala, and the
pineal gland each play a part in emotions such as love and fear.
The matrix, the lattice ,and the grid that warps space and time in quasi-concentric rings forms holographic images that become our reality. These are now being explored by more scientific disciplines. The proliferation of information is creating a oneness that is spreading through the minds of all mankind and will eventually bring us all to the oneness and harmony that so many of us seek.

Holograms and interferometry are the processes of crystallizing light into mass (elemental matter). Designing a universe by how we think is utilization of the intelligent information that makes objects or particles compress into mass. Hence the formula E = m(c) squared (squaring is to multiply a number by itself). Originally the formula had a “v” for velocity. Isaac Newton first tried to described energy and how it related to mass and velocity, but Gottfried Leibniz realized that energy increases geometrically when compressed so he squared the velocity. Einstein needed a constant velocity so he chose the speed of light “c”(celerias Latin for swiftness). A constant is something that cannot be exceeded, so it becomes a conversion factor telling us how to link the two systems of energy and matter.
What happens to the energy that is stored in the universe, in the form of a standing wave, when you move it to the other side of the equal sign? We can convert mass into energy, so mass and energy are interchangeable, just different forms of the same thing. To square the force in radiation propagation and electric current makes the equal sign the standing wave, and when light passes through the equal sign as (c) squared it creates a lot of pressure from compressed energy to form mass which turns the energy of light into matter.
Energy exists as intelligence in the form of information that is bound together. When we send it through the equal sign which acts as a tunnel or bridge for the compression of light, it combines to give it pressure we call a scalar field. Scalar energy responds when given a vector point, by an exothermic reaction, or the inverse endothermic reaction. These vector points or nodal points are mini black holes that are present everywhere, in all elements, forming matter and keeping the matter bound by the generation of field energy that we call gravity (attraction). If we form a holographic image we can turn it into substance by the use of frequency compression at the speed of light squared ( E =m(c) squared).
By Walter Russell So how do we utilize this amazing power of the brain? We need to understand more about light. Light particles called photons experience being everywhere at once. The photo plate that is used to create a hologram has the image everywhere on the plate. The image that is recorded looks like concentric circles similar to the rings made when you throw a hand full of pebbles into a pool of water. When the laser light is shown back through the negative plate you get the image. If you cut the plate in half you still get the whole image; if you divide it again you still get the full image, it is just not as bright. How does that hologram work in us? Walter Russell calls the center of the universe “magnetic stillness”. It is the magnetic stillness from which all creation comes through the paired sex of electricity (positive and negative, male and female). He further states “God's Creation is the imaged patterned form of God's imagining, built in His image. It is the body of God, the record of His thinking, created by Him for expressing the One-ness of Life, Love, Mind, Soul and Power which is in Him... God is Light. God is Universal Mind. Mind is Light. Mind knows. Mind thinks what it knows.” All of these characteristic traits are in each of us working and functioning, just waiting for our holographic consciousness to access and use them.
Holographic Universe (Part 1 of 5 ) its all illusion. ç
In the book of Moses we read that “I the Lord God, created
all things, ... spiritually, before they were naturally upon the face of the earth.” Spirit matter is just more refined and pure. If you have trouble with the word spirit then call it the pure essence of who you are. Mada Dalian states “there is no difference between the center of the physical reality and the center of the non-physical reality. In every cell and atom, within all that exists in the universe - the center is the same.” The human body is made from the same elements as the universe. The metals (minerals) chemicals, and substances are governed by the same laws that govern the universe/multi-verse. Our relationship to this alchemy of the human body/brain is in our memories that are recorded in holographic form in the elements of our brain and every cell of our entire body. We are light-kind with the universe and have an ability to control our personal body and thoughts in such a way that continues to
This state of consciousness that is holographic has the ability to go beyond the limits of what we see as our daily imagination to images that can be pure knowledge flowing from the universe into our whole being. This relates keep us who we are and our body what it is.
to the spirit (pure essence) of who we are that connects to the spirit (pure essence) of the universe, something we can call the holographic state of enlightenment. You can also say that you are the pure substances of compressed light. This would shed “light” on a biblical definition of faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” This helps to explain why faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. It is done through the power of the cosmic mind that is the gateway to these energy fields. They are available to us through the power of E =mc squared. In this formula the speed of light multiplied by itself converts 670 million mph to 448.9 quadrillion mph. That creates a lot of pressure to move or compress something.
In Genesis, it says Let there be Light, and Brahma speaks aham, I AM, creating the wave, the optical illusion and vibrating the universe into existence. I am a beacon to those who see Me. I am a mirror to those who look to Me. I am a door to those who knock on Me. I am a Way to you the traveler. - The Hymn of Jesus from the Acts of John
DVDs use laser light to record the information by embedding it on the disc. The human alchemy responds to the entire â€œlight spectrumâ€?, since we are made of compressed light which is energy compressed into matter (elemental mass). All life will respond to light. We are a recorder of all forms of the light spectrum we have experienced. When I see something it is transmitted through my eyes. Images are formed at nodal points like a kaleidoscope of mirrors with their ability to focus light. This make the geometric shapes of life that are recorded in the brain/body holographically. When I hear or feel something it is transformed by the brain into a holographic image. This would also explain our feelings of a sixth sense that we don't normally see. Once these experiences are recorded they can and are projected back out to others. The projection of this crystallization of light (hologram) also has an image that is called the aura, or the ethereal body, that is seen by some and felt by others who are in tune harmonically to these frequencies. Anyone who has fallen in love feels it.
Spiritual matter is more refined and pure, but is matter none the less that operates in a different dimension. We become aware of how to use these other dimensions as we find our oneness with the universe. We can find this oneness through a number of ways such as meditation, pondering, praying, etc. We need to talk about the mediums we are using to access this energy and which dimension we are using to perform these acts of faith to create things. For example we hear sound through the medium of air that travels at 700 mph (mach 1 the sound barrier) and a cellphone that sends a signal at the speed of light [670,000,000 mph (mach 900,000)]. You can set up an experiment to demonstrate the two mediums of air and the electromagnetic spectrum. If a person standing some distance from you calls you on the cell phone you will have mixed signals because you will now experience the event through two mediums. As you listen through the cell phone you will hear the conversation before it comes through the air. I use this example to demonstrate that there are other dimensions such as the fifth dimension of energy used by the brain to create holograms that don't match our intuitions and will give us a different concept of what is happening to us or around us.
Meta materials form images in a negative index of refraction that are contrary to our intuition, by causing light to appear to bend backwards or the red shift of the universe to become a blue shift. Instead of the universe appearing to expand according to our instruments of deduction and formulas, it would be compressing. Light appears to do many strange things when passed through the magnetic field of meta material. It makes the pencil you put in a glass of water appear to bend back out of the water. We have a lot more to learn about who we are and how we relate to the many facets of the universe. Musical harmonics have similar frequency distributions as light and color vibrations. They are sympathetic to us because we are made of the same substance as the universe and will resonate as one with the universe. Music creates a desired state of consciousness.

Some believe that health is all about consciousness thinking and altering our minds. Being out of balance requires adjustments to the thinking that creates the holographic image of who you want to be. Anyone seeking for a transformation of their life must first imagine and create the spiritual form (purest form) and then solidify it as action in this physical world. We can heal ourselves by creating the harmonic balances we need from all forms of energy that are essential to life. Herbs and essential oils contain frequencies to change consciousness, even create psychedelic experiences by over stimulation. When we use color frequencies or music to heal us it is helpful to understand some of the geometry that makes us one with the
Harmonics of all sorts follow geometric patterns that design and shape us. These patterns are expressed in mathematical formulas and relate to the golden ratio and sacred geometry. universe.
Our human mind/body is created in the same proportions. Is it any wonder then that we have a holographic form of thinking and responding to related frequencies?

Morphotropic Phase Boundaries (MPB) are the transitional areas in crystallized elements where the energy exchange takes place. It is the border (scalar) region where the transition from one form of existence to another takes place: from order to disorder, magnetic to non-magnetic state , or however the entities which meet at the boundary are to be interpreted. Shapes changing from tetragonal to rhombohedral, not allowed by symmetry, are mediated by intermediate phases of mono clinic symmetry, and the high electromechanical response in this region is related to this â€œphase transitionâ€? because of symmetry allowed Polarization Rotation.

The Evolutionary Mind
In the Renaissance cosmology of John Dee, mathematics is seen as the joint therapist of Father Sky and Mother Earth, or a kind of an intellectual, spiritual, elastic medium connecting up the heavenly realms and Gaia herself. That puts mathematics on the same level as the Logos, or the Holy Spirit. Letâ€™s consider that for the sake of discussion. Having seen mathematics as a language of space/time pattern, let me ask you this, Terence and Rupert: To what extent could the psychedelic vision of the Logos be externalized, either by verbal descriptions or by computer simulations, or by drawings of inspired visionary artists? On the other hand, in what ways could mathematical vision serve the spirit, and extend the mind? Is there a role, in other words, for this kind of thing in our main concerns? To give you a fast-forward toward the answer, let me read a couple of things from your writings.
Conversation on Science, Imagination & Spirit excerpts from The Evolutionary Mind
DMT Idea by L Brown First, from Terence’s Food of the Gods: The archaic revival is a clarion call to recover our birthright, however uncomfortable that may make us. It is a call to realize that life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience, upon which primordial shamanism is based, is life trivialized, life denied! Life enslaved to the ego and its fear of dissolution in the mysterious matrix of feeling that is all around us. It is in the archaic revival that our transcendence of the historical dilemma actually lies. There is something more. It is now clear that the new developments in many areas including mind machine interfacing, pharmacology of the synthetic variety, and data storage imaging and retrieval techniques are coalescing into the potential for a truly demonic, or an angelic self-imaging of our culture.
“Can the psychedelic state be visualized with technologies ranging from paint and brush to super computers?” I think it can. Terrance McKenna
We are reborn into a living world Rupert Sheldrake
Our second passage is from Rupert’s The Rebirth of Nature: As soon as we allow ourselves to think of the world as alive, we recognize that a part of us knew this all along. It is like emerging from winter into spring. We can begin to reconnect our mental life with our own direct, intuitive experiences of nature. We can participate in the spirits of sacred places and times. We can see that we have much to learn from traditional societies who have never lost their sense of connection with the living world around them. We can ac- knowledge the animistic traditions of our ancestors, and we can begin to develop a richer understanding of human nature, shaped by a tradition and collective memory, linked to the earth and the heavens, related to all forms of life and consciously open to the creative power expressed in all evolution. We are reborn into a living world.
Terence McKenna: The nuts and bolts question posed in all of this is, “Can the psychedelic state be visualized with technologies ranging from paint and brush to super computers?” I think it can. I think it’s not, in principle, mysterious. It may be fleeting, like the situation that follows upon the splitting of the atom. It may be remote. But it is in principle describable. It’s a domain to be explored. It’s simply a matter of paying attention, gaining inspiration, and gaining skill of technical execution.
RA: Any models that we can build, verbal, visual, or mathematical, are feeble compared to the experience itself. On the other hand, this experience is within all, and without all, and we are immersed in the spiritual world, so the tiniest reso- nance from the feeblest model may suffice to excite, as poetry excites emotion, spirit. The essence of communication is to have a compact representation of an experience that’s infi- nitely complex. The representations have to be really simple. Representation restricted to verbal mode alone might be too feeble to excite by resonance, the similar state. Not every per- son is going to become a cephalopod. Not every person has the time to become a shaman. We need, however, a certain num- ber of shamans in our culture to help to reconnect human society and the play in the sky. We need some kind of amplifying and communicating device between the few people who are our real shamans, let’s say sacred artists of the future, and the mass society watching MTV. The question is, can these means be of use to the clarion call that you’ve given in your book?
TM: I think that what makes it confusing is when you go into these domains, the encounter is so emotionally powerful. The situation is so novel that the experiment tends to assume that this emotional power is coming from the input. It’s not. It’s coming from the encounter with the input. It’s like posing the question, “Can you make a stirring record of the Grand Canyon?” Yes, you can with a helicopter-mounted camera. But the emotion you have watching it, you bring to it. The psychedelic dimension is objective, but it’s also so awesome and so different from what we know that it encourages and promotes and triggers awe in us. We bring something to it, which we can never image, or reduce to a verbal description or a piece of film. The thing itself is just more of reality, like the heart of the cell, or radar maps of the Venusian surface or the center of the atom.
Any models that we can build, verbal, visual, or mathematical, are feeble compared to the experience itself.
RA: Do we need more reality? We’ve already got so much.
TM: We need more of this mental Logos world. It’s a world that we’ve lost the connection with. These computer programs, psychedelic drugs, dynamic modeling schemes are the equivalent of probes, like Voyager. They’re sent not to an alien planet, but to an alien phase-space of some sort, one that we need connection to.
Rupert Sheldrake: I agree. The problem is that the emotional intensity of a psychedelic experience is totally different from seeing a computer graphic display. It’s possible to get something a bit like that just by shaking a kaleidoscope and looking into it. In these expensive novelty shops that dot California, you can find fancy, beautifully made kaleidoscopes. You look through them, and you can see a dazzling display of pattern and color, but within a few seconds you’re just bored. Nobody ever really looks at them for very long. Somehow they lose meaning. It’s no longer engaging. I think the difference between representation of the state and being in the state itself is this sense of finding meaning, engagement and intensity. I for one, as a botanist, am very drawn to flowers. I love looking at flowers. Sometimes you can look at a whole garden full of flowers like here in Esalen, and it’s quite meaningless. At other times you can look at a single flower for a long time, you can go into it. It’s like a mandala. You enter into that realm, and it takes on incredible meaning, beauty and significance. The same with butterflies and many other natural creations. It seems to me the problem is how to enter into that engagement, intensity and sense of meaning, rather than the representation of the pattern itself. There are plenty of patterns around in the natural world.

Inducing States of Awareness! I think the difference between representation of the state and being in the state itself is this sense of finding meaning, engagement and intensity. Rupert Sheldrake
As experienced by us, there is a kind of a resonance b e t w e e n patterns...
RA: These are space/time patterns. Although we say the words space/ time pattern, we have no language for individual space/time patterns. As experienced by us, there is a kind of a resonance between patterns that somehow makes a resonance with different patterns of neurotransmitters in the visual cortex. Some aspects are perceived and other aspects are not, remaining invisible to our perception. You’ve been speaking of flowers in the garden, or the images in the kaleidoscope. These are static patterns, and we have an extensive verbal language for that. What I’m suggesting is an expansion of our visual/linguistic capability in the direction of a universal language for space/time pattern, such that we could truly speak of our experiences and give them names. At the mere drop of a word or a code, an I-75, Highway 1, Highway 0, we would transmit a clear image of space/time pattern along with whatever emotion we remember from the experience. If we can awaken these feelings in the mind of the listener, we can intellectualize, understand, reconnect and converse with the space/time pattern of the spiritual world.

Let’s face it, we have the most extensive experience of this world through visual metaphors of, well, movies. We experience the Logos as movies. We don’t experience it as words, although there are sounds, and there is sometimes writing on the wall like graffiti. Basically reality is an infinite field of consciousness, of vibration, of waves moving, of intelligence. When we travel in this realm, we go somewhere we’ve been before and we recognize it, and that excites in us memory, which is reinforced and extended, and upon this experience we base further experiment. We three have had our many experiences, which I have great faith, are similar, even universal experiences, and yet we are absolutely speechless in verbalizing them to each other. Words fail us.
TM: It seems that mind responds with an affinity for itself. If an expression is universal, then it has an affinity for the universal mind. What’s interesting about the example of the kaleidoscope is that the kaleidoscope gets boring after a few minutes. If you analyze how it works, and take it apart, the base units in most kaleidoscopes are pieces of broken glass, pebbles, detritus, junk. Somehow splitting this into six sections with a mirror and putting it in heavy oil is supposed to bring you into the realm of something endlessly watchable and interesting. But it doesn’t.
“Here in this pattern is the footprint of meaning.” The brain machines being produced in Germany are the same way. All pattern seems to quickly lose its charm unless it’s pattern that has been put through the sieve of the mind. We enjoy looking at the ruins and artifacts of vanished civilizations a lot more than random arrangements of natural objects. It seems to me what we’re looking for when we say the MPP (Massively Parallel Processor) data on chaos is like a DMT trip, what we’re saying is, “Here in this pattern is the footprint of meaning.” It’s as though an architect passed through. We’re always looking for the betraying presence of an order that is more than an order of economy and pure function. We look for an aesthetic order, and when we find that, then we have this reciprocal sense of recognition and transcendence, and this is what the psychedelic experience provides in spades. A critic of the psychedelic experience would object saying, “Of course it’s made of mind. It’s made of your mind.” For the psychedelic voyager, the intuition is made of mind, but not made of my mind. Either there’s an identity problem, or a real frontier of communication is being crossed. When we look for living pattern, or aesthetically satisfying order, what we really look for is a sign that mind has somehow touched the random processes of nature.

RS: The limiting factor seems to be neither the richness of display that we find in nature, nor the language that we communicate with, but rather the ability to go into something with intensity of vision. I don’t think language is a limiting problem. For example, music can be written down in a language. I can read music, but for me it doesn’t come to life from this language. I have to hear it for it to come to life. Presumably mathematical notation is a way of notating things in the mathematical landscape, which comes alive for mathematicians. Take the realm of plants again. If you look at the incredible richness of botany, of flower forms, there is a language for this, used by botanists and florists, describing the species of plants in technical jargon. Even so, it doesn’t mean that most botanists spend most of their time contemplating the beauty of flowers. They’re rushing to the next committee meeting or getting their next paper ready for publication in a technical journal. Somehow there isn’t much time to actually enter into these realms, even for people whose profession it is to be concerned with them. We’re neither short of images nor of languages in many realms, but rather of the time, the space, and the inclination to enter.
RA: Music is a good metaphor. Let’s just think of this for a minute. I don’t propose that a mathematical model of a brain or a plant would be as wonderful as a brain or a plant. Life will not be replaced by language. Nevertheless, the evolution of music has been enormously facilitated by having a graphic language that to some extent recalls the actual musical experience. This is the role that I’m proposing for mathematics, not to replace the Earth or the heavenly realms, but to facilitate their understanding through an analog on the same level as musical staff notation, pertaining to the visual experience of space/time patterns. What I’m suggesting is an increase in our encyclopedia of models, extending language, so that we can name, store, retrieve, and recreate not the experience itself, but the data, for the sake of communication. This is exactly what musical staff notation did for music. It pertains not only to the spiritual experience, but also to fundamental questions on the future of human society. Can we understand the space/time nature of the planet well enough, since it’s so complex, to be sensitive enough to cooperate with it? If we can’t even understand what we’re seeing when we look, there’s not much we can do to co- operate. Biogeography, for example, is a botanical field that could be revolutionized by a staff notation for space/time pattern. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set
RA: I want to end by saying this: Mathematics is part of the natural world. It’s a landscape that can be explored, simply and directly, and with incredible pleasure, delight and advancement, just like the psychedelic Logos, or any other aspect of the world. The mathematical landscape does not belong to the human species. It belongs not even to the earth, but to the sky. It’s part of the infinite universe we live in. Whatever microscopes, telescopes, kaleidoscopes, or computer graphic tools we can devise to enhance our vision of the mathematical universe is definitely advantageous. How this will fit into society, however, is a problem. We are in an evolutionary challenge from which the human species may not survive. I feel that part of our difficulty is our culture’s rejection of mathematics. Mathematics is essentially the marriage of Father Sky and Mother Earth. I’ve given my life work to understand this relationship between the psychedelic and the mathematical vision. So I’ll leave it there.

The opening of the holographic mandala wheel sets its unique nexus qualities into motion as a thrusting outward of the vital force of generation and selfreplication. This grows the web and weave of the holographic DNA/Double Helix. Each mandala blossom and globe awakens as a particular vibratory reality turning upon implicit tonal, musical and mathematical patterning. Thus physical laws, fundamental principles and sequential time arise from the unique axis point that projects itself into a particular mandala sphere and world.

Electro Photon Imaging of
Ayahuasca Ceremony The human antenna and altered states of consciousness during AYAHUASCA ritual is the exploration that we sought to record with the Electro Photon Imaging device developed by visionary bio-physicist D r. K o n s t a n t i n K o r o t k o v from St.Petersburg; Russia. www.korotkov.org Boris Petrovic and Krishna Madappa
THE AYAHUASCA KIRLIONICS STUDY was made possible by Boris Petrovic, Tismara, Silvia Miranda, Viviane Amaral Souza and the initiates of Sanctuary Palmeira. NOOSPHERE LABS PRODUCTION (c) 2012 ITIQUIRA, BRASIL http://www.facebook.com/NoosphereLabs

NARRATIVE and OBSERVATIONS of CEREMONY
The video link by Dear Boris Petrovic illustrates the sequence of events in a chronology of the ceremony, initiated by shaman Tismara. - http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=2254942751168
1. Gathering of all voyagers in the womb (central chamber) and in circular formation w Shaman Tismara by the altar. OM
smoke is prepared w specific resins and the smudge master anoints every participant and the objects of reverence. A specific invocation to the “fumar” (ceremonial smoke) is sung to a rhythmic resonance as shaman Tismara invokes the light being deity named angel Chavakiah to guide the voyagers. OM
3. Shaman Tismara now prepares to provide the tea (Ayahuasca) for the voyagers to accelerating the mind / spirit / body purification and providing a training ground for self-examination, dreaming arts, telepathy, inter-dimensional travel and inter-species communication. OM
voyagers now settle into their galactic couches which is positioned around the central chamber or the womb; to embark on the galactic voyage of SELF! OM In the words of Christ : “know thyself” is the essence of the voyage. In Vedic conveyance: “Aham Tam Brahmasi” – (That Thou Art; Know you are the universe). OM
chants play inside the central chamber as the lights are regulated to a soft violetpurple-blue hue. OM
6. The galactic voyage of SELF is preparing the gateways of expression for sensitive processes to unfurl plus creating a safe environment for uncovering and healing old psychic, emotional and other life wounds. OM
the purification of the “historical” mind unfolds, the natural environment and harmonic order fills us with the psychic and physical harmonic patterns and energies for supramental mind transcendence. OM
voyage even though contained inside linear time, conveys an expansive portal to the relationship of space – time, as was observed by Krishna. This vibration is vital to reach harmonic alignment and optimum evolutionary experience at this grand opportunity and moment in time. Cosmic History becomes Cosmic Science as the Super-Human emerges. OM
Tismara who is observing the field in ALL, now prepares a Agni Hotra ( Fire) as she is guided to fulfill. “According to the law of time, in the new collective mental frequency (1320), money and machine obsession (1260 frequency) will be replaced with the wonderment of exploring the secrets of the universe through our own mind. We will be happily occupied with artistic processes of transformation, exploring our new-found mental capabilities to beautify the planet and discover the hidden secrets within nature” – Book of the Transcendence
voyagers now form a circle around the fire where chants and invocations are infused in dance, imprinting the renewed fabric of the galactic being. At the core is reconnection with the divine within for self-empowerment. We learn the value of self-reliance and how to reclaim our inner resources, instead of giving our power away. Voyagers focus on how to access and use personal and sometimes hidden abilities that stem from the true shaman that is within us all: the higher self. OM
The SANCTUARY PALMEIRA, located in the Brasilia urban area at a 6 ha property was founded more than 15 years ago as a healing center and the AYAHUASCA work is going on for more than 10 years in a circle of power, beneath a grand BURITI palm tree."
The following instruments of Dr.Korotkov's lab were utilized. They are as follows: 1. EPI/GDV PRO 2. ECO SENSOR + SPUTNIK (Measuring energy and information of the ceremonial spaces) 3. MINI LABORATORY (For study of the Ayahuasca Tea)
Study details: 1. Eight subjects including the Shaman Priestess Tismara were the study group. 2. Five females and three males ranging in ages from 30 to 65 years and in good health were the participants for the study, including Krishna. 3. All the participants were professionals ranging in fields from science to law and business. 4. EPI/GDV data was gathered in the following steps: a. Before the ceremony. b. 1 1/2 to 2 hrs after drinking the tea. (4 people) c. After the ceremony.
Summary of results: 1. The parameter which records Energy Field termed "AREA" increased in 5 people and decreased in 3 people. 2. The parameter which records "ENTROPY" decreased in 3 people and increased in 5 people. 3. The parameter which illustrates the alignment to our cosmic nature was enhanced for all the participants conveyed in the "CHAKRA" charts. The readings of the 8 participants had a common unified "chakra" signature. The order of CHAKRA signature alignments and empowerments to the cosmic field were observed in this unified pattern: a. HEART (ANAHATA) was centered and strong for all, followed by b. CROWN (SAHASRARA), followed by c. ROOT (MULADHARA)
Sample Voyagers before & a!er The scientific data sets of the Human Energy Field, the dynamic images of the tea, capture the scientific registration of such a ceremony which induces a connection to our cosmic communicative capabilities, as observed from the nature of the chakra alignments.
Journey with Tismaha, the Shaman, on....
The focus on this section of the article is on witnessing the shamans process as angel of light, Chavakia guides the voyagers from Tismara’s field.
We shall focus on two specific areas:

"Tismara is a SHAMAN from Brasilia, her spiritual work at SANCTARY PALMEIRA with AYAHUASCA includes invocation of angelic manifestations and cabala.
The way of the Shaman is one who i s g u i d e d a n d e m p o w e re d t o enhance the integral wellbeing of all as was the intent of this ceremony initiated by Shaman Priestess Tismara. OM Shaman Tismara who has devoted her being to empowering all has been conducting Ayahuasca Ceremonies at Santuario Palmeira in Brasilia for more than 10+ years with cabalistic purification and Ayahuasca rituals.
Pre and Post Human Energy Field. (Specific #’s have been assigned to indicate pre + post events)
Observing the chakra field (Pre), it’s clear of Tismara’s natural waking state, which is rooted in power and strength leading into the ceremony. This is illustrated in the Root (Muladhara) to Heart (Anahata) to Crown’s (Sahasrara) alignment. The Throat (Vishuddha) which is larger than all the other chakras represents the communicative aspects that lead into the start of ceremony. Many words conveyed expressing direction and alignment in the pre preparation, which is seeded in organizing towards the ceremonial night. Emotional components are also observed as we observe zone # 5 in the Energy Field, that shows the opening on the right hemisphere (Intuitive/emotional brain) opening. As angel Chavakia continues her guiding process to the voyagers that numbered over 24, the (post) chakra field has condensed in size enunciating a lightness of being as the 3rd eye chakra, “Ajna” (eye of cosmic vision) is expanded and the throat has normalized. OM The 3rd chakra (Manipura) is minimized in size and aligned towards the left (Physical valuation), with the 1st (Muladhara) slightly skewed to the right (emotional valuation) is holding space for all as vividly expressed in the Energy Field through #’s 7 + 8. This observation is akin to a centrifuging processs across the spinal column so as to clear the stagnations that are potentially resident in the voyagers fields!
How the inner prence is maintanted as Shaman Tismara holds the space and the collective is transformed. The shaman...the angle of light...
As we explore the pilot scans of the Energy Fields, we observe the following :
guiding power of LOVE potently represented from the strengths of #’s 5 to 6.
#’s 1 to 2, that represent the emotional H e a r t - L i v e r p re s e n c e which is freeing all by the clearing we see in #2.
3 and 4 convey the power of LOVE transmission as we observe a clear opening from the cardio center in #4.
These data sets of Dear Shaman Tismara were obtained before the ceremony and about 2 hrs into the ceremony. The entire ceremony lasted over 4 + hrs.
The ceremony was POWERFUL and we have seen documented the emanations from Dear Tismara in empowering everyone (study voyagers) as viewed in the collective chakra fields, that the HEART (Anahata) resonance is the principle guiding light from where ALL actions (Thought – word - deed) issue. Beaming Love and Gratitude to Dearest Tismara for this “Science of Light” moment, from Boris and I with all our Dear colleagues who participated, namely Silvia, Vivianne, Caroline and our cosmic tribe.
In conclusion and further exploration this conveyance from the Chandogya Upanishad (Wisdom texts of Bharat) summarizes our essence of Being: “There is a light that shines brighter than the earth, the stars, the heavens….and that is the light that shines in the diamond that resides in the lotus of the HEART.”
A very interesting observation took place that compressed space–time. The eco-sensor which captures information on the spaces was set to capture data from 20.00Hrs to 05.00 Hrs. The dates for data capture was on 06/15/2012 to 06/16/2012. Eco sensor set up details are in the video. The following evening when I was preparing to analyse the data, there was only 2 min of data that was recorded! On closer analysis these were the observations:
were from 00.02 to 00.03 Hrs and 07.03 to 07.04 hrs dated 06/20/2015.
After checking the eco sensor, it was found that there was no flaw in it’s functioning. So was there a compression of “space – time” that transmitted and as we ALL in our chakra fields were inspired – empowered – enriched, did this open a portal from 06/15/2012 to 06/20/2012.
Shaman Tismara + Krishna invoking
Waters to Lights Intelligence! Thoughts from Krishna Madappa
Having participated both as the researcher and a galactic voyager, surrendered to the cosmic moments ahead, this was my request into the ceremony: “Knowing we are the universe and the universe resides within (Vedic Mantra), utilize me, guide me, inspire me, empower me and enrich all the moments that enhance our integral living across the Universe.” Sri Aurobindo’s conveyance reverberated as this request was injected to the universe: “The way of yoga is not only to rise out of the ignorant world consciousness into the Divine consciousness, but to bring the Supramental power of that Divine consciousness down to the ignorance of mind, life and body, to transform them and create a Divine in matter.”
As we awaken our collective knowing to the nature of the cosmic mind, we seek to explore these expansions from the realms of the "Sciences of Light." Krishna Madappa
is the name given to both the central
ingredient of a South American Indian psychoactive potion (a species of the Banisteriopsis genus) and the potion itself. Almost invariably other plants are mixed together with the jungle vine Banisteriopsis; about a hundred different species are known to have been added to the potion at different times and places. Ayahuasca has been used in a number of countries in South and Central America, including Panama, Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Bolivia, and by at least seventy different indigenous peoples of the Americas. In addition to ayahuasca, other native names include yajé, caapi, natema, pindé, kahi, mihi, dápa and bejuco de oro, the last meaning 'vine of gold'.
Ayahuasca itself means 'vine of the soul'.
‘vine of the soul’
Ayahuasca is made in the form of a drink or potion. The bark of the Banisteriopsis vine is either mashed to a pulp and then mixed with cold water or, in other regional methods of making the potion, it is boiled for a number of hours and then the resulting liquid is consumed. Ayahuasca gained a reputation for providing telepathic powers and a psychoactive alkaloid found to be present in it was named telepathine (now known to be the same as the alkaloid harmine found in Syrian rue). Harmaline is also present in both ayahuasca and Syrian rue. Other psychoactive plants are often added to Ayahuasca to achieve visionary states of consciousness; for example leaves from Psychotria viridis, which is a source of dimethyltryptamine (DMT). The harmala alkaloids serve to potentiate t h e s e brewed compounds by preventing their breakdown in the digestive tract. The harmala alkaloids are not especially psychoactive on their own, even at high dosages, when vomiting and diarrhea become the main effect.
How Ayahuasca Works Scientific analysis isolated the main chemicals responsible for the hallucinogenic properties of ayahuasca. In 1923, Fischer analyzed the B. caapi vine and isolated a compound he named telepathine (from the telepathic powers one reportedly gains when under the influence of ayahuasca). It was not until 1969 that a full chemical analysis was carried out (Shultes & Hoffman, 1992), and the compound was actually found contain three active molecules harmine, harmiline, and d-1,2,3,4- tetrahydroharmine. Harmine and harmiline were shown to be the primary molecules of the B. caapi vine responsible for the altered state of the ayahuasca drinker; however, these chemicals alone could not account for the intense visions and experiences of ayahuasca. The beta-carboline chemicals like harmine found in the B. caapi vine can be psychedelic, but only in toxic doses (McKenna, 1993). Further research revealed P. viridis (chakruna) as a common admixture to ayahuasca. Assays showed this plant to contain small but significant amounts of the potent hallucinogen DMT or N, Ndimethyltryptamine. However, DMT is rendered in active when taken orally. How does the DMT in chakruna get into the blood when drinking ayahuasca? In the presence of the harmine (found in the B. caapi vine), DMT from the P. viridis plant becomes orally active in the body. Harmine alkaloids inhibit enzymes in the stomach that normally destroy DMT. In other words, the B. caapi vine allows the hallucinogen DMT to make its way to the brain to help induce hallucinations (Turner, 1994). Of the thousands of plants in the Amazon rain forest, only these two types of plants when combined and drank will allow the user to experience a slow, sustained release of DMT and the resulting hallucinations.
"SOMA" the divine elixir of the deep VEDIC practices evoked a mantra from the Yajur Veda which read as follows: " purnamadah purnamidam purnat purnamudachyate purnasya purnamadaya purnamevavashisyate ~ Om shantih shantih shanti. " OM Interpretation: "What is visible is the infinite. What is invisible is also the infinite. Out of the Infinite Being the finite has come, yet being infinite, only infinite remains. Om peace, peace, peace." OM "AYAHUASCA" as with "SOMA" is a Divine elixir whose domains are resident in the Shamanic practices in the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon basins.
Consciousness expansion Telepathic communion with extraterrestrial entities during the altered state of consciousness using AYAHUASCA
was originally thought to be the active chemical
constituent of Banisteriopsis caapi, a key plant ingredient in the preparation of Ayahuasca; a sacramental beverage from the Amazon. This isolated chemical was so named because of the reported effects of Ayahuasca among the indigenous users, including: collective contact with and/or visions of jaguars, snakes, and jeweled birds, and ancestral spirits; the ability to see future events; and as the name suggests, telepathic communication among tribal members. Experimental data seem to strongly suggest that biological systems present nonlocal properties not explainable by classical modes. Most of the nonlocal communications is probably lost within the normal brain wave or EEG noise, otherwise we would be incapable of functioning normally and would overload when confronted with such an influx of data. A series of experiments involving human subjects is proposed, with an objective to test for possible extraterrestrial communications occurring in the subjects' brain. Individuals can receive within their brains, frequencies that are very likely used by extraterrestrials for communication purposes. While most individuals filter these out in order to function normally, it is very possible to access and interpret these brain frequencies. This makes it feasible for individuals to be trained to access these frequency bands in ways that makes communication with extraterrestrial intelligences possible. This would enable the development of a scientific protocol for "Controlled Superluminal Communications."

by Dr. Konstantin Korotkov The EPI/GDV (Electro Photon Imaging) system provides noninvasive, painless and almost immediate evaluation which can highlight potential health abnormalities prior to even the earliest symptoms of an underlying condition, and suggests courses of action. These may include identifying an area for further medical exploration, suggesting products that may be beneficial (such as vitamins, minerals, supplements), or evaluating energy, stress and vitality. In each case, the EPI scan can provide a broad spectrum of information and supportive suggestions. EPI utilizes a weak, electrical current applied to the fingertips for less than a millisecond. The body’s response to this stimulus is the formation of a variation of an “electron cloud” composed of light energy photons. The electronic “glow” of this discharge (invisible to the human eye) is captured by an optical CCD camera system and then translated into a digital computer file. http://gdvusa.org/ http://korotkov.org/

“Human Energy Field: study with GDV bioelectrography” Author: K. Korotkov. This book is dedicated to the presentation of the scientific foundations and practical applications of the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique. This technique represents a revolutionary new method for the study of biological subjects, namely biological energy fields. This research extends scientific tradition, developed in Russia in the twentieth century. The Human Energy Field carries information on physical, mental and spiritual states of a human being, and the GDV Bioelectrography technique is the first method in the world which gives an opportunity to study this information. Utilizing the latest advances in technology, such as microelectronics, computer imaging, and data mining, scientists have been able to create an entirely new class of scientific instruments that allow the practitioner to view, measure and analyze biological subjects in a manner that has never been possible before. The GDV technique has been found to have numerous highly important applications in medicine, sports, consciousness studies, material testing and other areas, discussed in this book… Measuring Energy Fields: State of the Science. Author: K. Korotkov. Volume I in the GDV Bioelectrography series presents recent studies and applications of the Gas Discharge Visualisation (GDV) technique. Our previous books were created by a small group of associates. This volume presents a wide range of articles by authors from different countries. After seven years of development, the GDV techniques entered a new stage of “catalytic growth” with innovative methods emerging from various laboratory and clinical settings. Research by independent groups around the world demonstrates that the GDV technique provides methods for recording subtle dynamics in the energy fields of objects with various natures. GDV assessment methods are demonstrated to have a wide range of important applications in medicine, sports performance, materials testing, as well as analytic studies of human consciousness and spiritual healing.

The Seven Stages of
The Monroe Institute's® pioneering work in the studies of consciousness, expanded states of awareness, and the development of technologies using music, suggestion, and binaural beats is a modern example of similar pursuits by the alchemists of old. In fact, the intersections between science, spirituality, consciousness studies, and use of subtle energies share a common history rooted in the ancient tradition of alchemy. The times in our history when the ancient art of alchemy was the science of the day were times when synergy abounded, creativity flourished, innovation blossomed, life was full of wonder, and science was sacred.
Article by Theresa Bullard
In reading this you might be thinking, "Wait a minute, I thought alchemy was an archaic tradition of attempting to turn base metals into gold. What does that have to do with consciousness?" This common stereotype has greatly obscured what the true tradition of alchemy is about. The old "lead into gold" fables were more of a metaphorical language that revealed how we can transform ourselves inside and out as well as purify and perfect raw materials from nature.
What really is alchemy then? Alchemy is the epitome of an art and science that has discovered and preserved the secrets of how to expand awareness and harness subtle energies, both macroscopically and microscopically. Ultimately, the primary objective of alchemy is to raise the subtle vibratory frequency of ourselves and the material world by clearing negative patterns, purifying body, mind, and soul, and thereby achieving our full potential. Alchemy holds the keys to both practical methods and deeper understanding for harnessing consciousness to influence the material world, a possibility that is being rediscovered in today's popular culture. It seeks to expand awareness and direct subtle energies to transform nature into a perfected state.
These goals of perfecting nature and the self are achieved in alchemy through a very specific, scientific, and intentional process of seven stages of transformation and purification. At the most simple level, these seven stages involve... 1. breaking down the old, imperfect forms to release the essence trapped within; 2. separating out the various essential components that were released to gain clarity; 3. purifying the separate parts to eliminate any impurities; 4. recombining the various purified essences into a more harmonious and balanced whole; 5. raising the energetic vibration of the recombined substance; Through these seven stages, we take a transformative journey to reclaim and awaken the "gold" within ourselves. Upon completion of an alchemical cycle, a whole new level of consciousness is awakened within, allowing us to experience a greater sense of wholeness and selfactualization.
6. continuing to refine and purify the specimen through more cycles of separation and recombination; and 7. ultimately transforming or transmuting the original psyche or material into a state of beauty, integrity, and incorruptibility.
Music's Role in Alchemy One of the essential tools used by alchemists to create the inner transformations they sought was music and vibrational energy. Music has long been recognized by many traditions as a powerful tool for expanding awareness and shifting vibration. As Joachim-Ernst Berendt said in The World is Sound: Nada Brahma: Music and the Landscape of Consciousness, "Our ears are the gateway to transcendence," and music is the bridge. Musical tones can affect virtually every function in our body. The types of music we listen to can help us improve our health, explore inner realms, and enhance our creative and mental performance. There is documented evidence that alchemists from around the world frequently used specific types of sound, frequency, and musical instruments in their work. Alchemical artwork often depicts musical instruments somewhere within the setting of an alchemist's laboratory. The alchemists recognized the effectiveness of music for helping them harness their consciousness and entrain their mind and body into coherent, expanded states of awareness. Once in a coherent and elevated state, they were able to achieve quantum leaps in the transformational process. Alchemists have long held sacred the patterns of creation written upon the face of nature. These patterns--often termed "sacred geometries"--contain certain mystical proportions that are harmonious and conducive to life. One such proportion, known as the golden mean (1.618...), can be found again and again throughout the cosmos, in nature, and also in the human body. Because of its prominence in nature, the alchemists held all manifestations of the golden mean in high regard. The alchemists and philosophers of the ancient Pythagorean Society used a musical scale that was determined by "golden intervals," rather than the modern musical scale we are most familiar with today.
Pythagorean tuning (Greek: Πυθαγόρεια κλίµακα) is a system of musical tuning in which the frequency relationships of all intervals are based on the ratio 3:2 (the perfect fifth), "found in the harmonic series." This interval is chosen because it is one of the most consonant. Attributed to Pythagoras (sixth century BC), "the Pythagorean system would appear to be ideal because of the purity, of the fifths, but other intervals, particularly the major third, are so badly out of tune that major chords [may be considered] a dissonance." The Pythagorean scale is any scale which may be constructed from only perfect fifths and octaves or the gamut of (all 12) pitches constructed from only perfect fifths and octaves and from which specific scales may be drawn. See: generated collection. For example, the series of fifths generated above gives seven notes, a diatonic major scale on C in Pythagorean tuning, shown in notation on the top right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Pythagorean_tuning
http://www.interferencetheory.com Each of the alchemical stages of transformation is associated with one of the tones on the Pythagorean scale. In addition, each of the seven planets known by the ancients to comprise our solar system was thought to correspond to one of these alchemical notes. In their dance around the sun, the planets were thought to create a celestial symphony called the music of the spheres. It was believed that each of these alchemical notes had transformative properties when acting upon the denser manifestations of physical matter and the human body. So important is music to the tradition of alchemy that the creation of the first musical lyre was attributed to Thoth-Hermes, the scribe of the gods and father of alchemy, science, astronomy, language, and all subjects of higher learning. This lyre was tuned to the golden mean, or
Pythagorean scale. Today, the only instruments that can produce these tones accurately are electronic music programs or instruments such as chimes and of course the lyre, which is specifically designed to be tuned to that scale. Through experience and observation of natural rhythms, alchemists learned to use the phenomenon of entrainment in their own practice and experiments. First they used it to entrain themselves into the desired state of consciousness, then they used it to create a harmonic field within their environment in order to influence their experiments in a positive way. Whether their experiment was performed upon the self, an individual seeking healing, or an herb or mineral that they were using to create a remedy, entrainment to a higher vibrational state was an essential step in alchemy.
Harmonic Archetypes Just as harmonic science has been the inspiration behind many of the worlds masterworks, it continues to be an endless source of philosophical guidance for this author's music and visual art projects. The works in this area designed to illustration certain archetypes and ideals founded on the quantum lattice and Pythagorean harmonic geometry.

The Alchemical Use of METAMUSIC If alchemists had understood the phenomenon of brain waves and hemispheric synchronization as today's scientists do, and had they possessed tools similar to METAMUSIC to achieve the states of consciousness they sought, they would have certainly found their "gold" much faster. Alchemy is already an accelerated path to transformation, and music is essential in achieving that, but METAMUSIC allows us to take this even farther and faster. M E TA M U S I C i s u s e d t o c r e a t e i n n e r transformations within our consciousness, our brains, and our bodies--the very same goals that alchemists had. This "designer music"-combined with its embedded layers of binaural-beat patterns that directly entrain the brain into desired states--is a vital tool for creating the kinds of alchemical transformation needed on the planet today. In a sense, the Hemi-SyncÂŽÂ and METAMUSIC technologies already stimulate a kind of alchemical process for the brain. They accomplish several stages of the transformative process in entraining the
listener into a whole-brain expanded state of awareness. For example, these technologies guide the listener through a process of first detaching from the outer mundane world, turning inward to the subconscious realm, separating the left and right hemispheric activities in the brain using binaural signals, and then eliciting synchronization or harmonization between these two sides. This sequence coincides with the first four stages of alchemical transformation. Once the whole-brain state is achieved, the brain is then entrained into an expanded state of consciousness and allowed to rest in this for a while, often revealing a vision or allowing the listener to tap into fresh ideas and inner guidance corresponding to the fifth stage of alchemy. And through immersion programs, such as the GATEWAY VOYAGEÂŽ, this process is repeated again and again: each time going to a new level of expansion and vibration, ultimately leading the listener to connect with a deeper sense of self. This completes the sixth and seventh stages of the alchemical process. The result can be likened to a rewiring of the brain in which new neural connections are formed and the brain functions are transformed into a permanently enhanced state.

Through understanding the scientific sequence of alchemical transformation, we can further select specific METAMUSIC compositions to accompany each stage of alchemy in appropriate sequence for enhanced and expedited transformation. I have done this in my workshops with great success. Selections I have used for this purpose include Breakthrough, Into the Deep, Cycles, Lightfall, Remembrance, Touching Grace, Between the Worlds, Ascension, Inner Journey, and Higher. The broad selection of METAMUSIC available today allows for a number of options that achieve goals corresponding to each stage of alchemy.
Combining a doctorate in physics and an interdisciplinary research background encompassing quantum t h e o r y, nanotechnology, origin of life studies, and crystal chemistry, Theresa Bullard embraces and epitomizes the new paradigm of synthesizing knowledge from a variety of fields to c r e a t e a n e w s y n e r g y. Following a lifelong path of exploring ancient metaphysical teachings, c on s c iou s ness ex pan si on , subtle energies, alchemy, and holistic medicine, she brings fresh ideas to the new study of science and spirituality. She possesses the much-soughtafter ability to communicate these concepts in an inspiring and profoundly practical way that every generation from every background can understand and incorporate for real results.
This premise could be taken even further by developing an alchemical METAMUSIC series specifically targeted toward eliciting each of the seven stages. For example, by using musical compositions based on the appropriate fundamental note and energy that correspond to each stage, as well as Fibonacci series or golden mean binauralbeat patterns embedded below the music, the user would be entrained to a particular alchemical stage. Doing so would assist individuals to move through these stages with greater ease when they arise naturally, which occurs frequently. What a great melding of both ancient and modern technologies that would be!

Connecting through the Space Between Us A new understanding is emerging from the laboratories of the most cutting-edge physicists, biologists, and psychologist that challenges the
individuals are far less individual than we thought they were.
Between the smallest particles of our being, between our body and our environment, between ourselves and all of the people with whom we are in contact, between every member of every societal cluster, there is a Bond—a connection so integral and profound that there is no longer a clear demarcation between the end of one thing and the beginning of another. The world essentially operates, not through the activity of individual things, but in the connection between them— in a sense, in the space between things. Rather than a will to compete and dominate, the essential impulse of all of life is a will to connect. The crises we face today have occurred precisely because the lives we’ve chosen to lead are not consistent with our truest nature as givers and sharers. New discoveries in physics and biology demonstrate that all living things succeed and prosper only when they see themselves as part of a greater whole.
Lynne McTaggart Lynne McTaggart, author of the international bestsellers The Field and The Intention Experiment, is one of the preeminent spokespersons on consciousness and the new science. This article, adapted from her forthcoming book The Bond: Connecting Through the Space Between Us, is the culmination of her groundbreaking work, offering a completely new scientific story, plus a detailed blueprint of how to live in harmony with it.

Yantra By Ivan Rados
Yantra meditation helps us clear the content of our consciousness so it can become a pure mirror, reflecting without interpreting. All That Is exists infinitely in this emptiness, this no-thingness. When the mirror of our consciousness is left without any content, this is enlightenment.
Yantras are inspired artworks and designs based on the principles of sacred geometry used for meditation. Each yantra design contains a centre point or “dot” from which geometric shapes and designs radiate. Traditionally, such symbols are used to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts, and the act of meditating on a yantra is held to have spiritual benefits.
Imagination Did you know that the brain doesn’t distinguish between what’s real and what isn’t? We can harness this “incapacity” and use it to visualize whatever we wish to achieve.
The brain produces hormones that correspond to the sensations of actualization, as if what we were imagining were happening. Our subconscious mind, the giant driving force of humankind, reads these sensations as instructions concerning which direction to take in further creating our reality. For example, if we spend much of our time in fear, imagining the worst, our “naïve” brain coupled with our “narrow-minded” subconscious do their best to manifest fearful circumstances. But if we make a conscious choice to experience our inherent peace, joy, and love, the subconscious will lead us to these kinds of experiences. There’s a huge difference between experiencing our inherent peace, joy, and love, and fooling ourselves with an intellectual idea of peace, joy, and love. Intellect, the energy of the left-brain, is the “dry” part of our mind, creating thoughts but not actual experiences. It functions with logic, against imagination, and its conclusion is always the same: “This is foolishness.” If we believe our left brain, we may achieve some kind of mental clarity and direction, but we lose our aliveness. The right brain is the hemisphere of love and poetry. It’s intuitive, receptive, and full of creative possibilities. Infinite creativity is infinitely imaginative and works through this right brain. Imagination is the creative energy of our essence, our spirit. Imagination brings something from the unknown world into the known world, from the infinite into three-dimensional experience. By denying imagination, we create our own nightmare. During the day, we behave as if we had no imagination. But when we sleep, our dreams haunt us and are filled with fear because our imagination has been suppressed. We are asked to absorb everything we experience, then pour what we have absorbed into our imagination. In other words, we first become receptive, then imaginative, and finally creative. One caveat: imagination isn’t real but made of dream stuff. Only the experiencer, the observer, the witness—our One Self—is real. The trick is to remain aware of the one who is dreaming, so that we use our imagination but don’t allow ourselves to be used by it.
Existence is an exclamation of sheer joy, the welling up of joyful creativity that requires neither cause nor reason.
Our natural state is harmonious joy—a joy that springs from deep tranquility and stillness, free of tension, stress, anxiety, or fear. The materialistic life is one in which money, power, and prestige dominate. It is a feature of the egoic mind, which is only interested in our productivity, efficiency, and obedience, not in our joyfulness. In contrast, consciousness is all about joyfulness. The spiritual life is one in which joy simply radiates. If we want a naturally joyful life, all we need to do is ignore our mind and let our heart direct us. Restoring our heart to its rightful status as master is real spirituality. Perhaps you are suffering. The thing to be aware of is that we are not our suffering: we are ultimate joy. We are asked not to run from suffering, trying to forget, but to allow it to just “be.” Suffering isn’t our natural state: joy is. Since joy can neither be created nor destroyed, it blossoms whenever we are simply “being.” We then experience the natural joy contained in each moment. Because we are in the now, every cell of our body, every fiber of our being, nods in tremendous joy. The moment we try to experience joy instead of simply allowing it to arise, we have entered duality. The key to avoiding this is not to identify with joy, but just enjoy it. In other words, joy isn’t something we have to try to feel. All that’s needed is to embrace the now. Without any help from our thoughts or dreams, we find ourselves being spontaneously joyful. When we aren’t in the now, our joy turns into a conditional state in which we fluctuate between happiness and unhappiness. Joy isn’t the same as happiness. Whereas happiness and unhappiness come and go, joy is our birthright.
How do I meditate on a Yantra? 1. Position the yantra so its centre is at eye level and a comfortable distance away. Sit with your spine straight. If this isn’t possible, find a comfortable position in which you can remain alert. Breathe in and out slowly until your breath flows naturally. Begin with your eyes open, simply gazing at the yantra. It’s necessary to look only at the center of the sacred geometry yantra, focusing on the dot in the middle of the symbol, trying not to blink or blinking as little as possible. Gaze at the centre for fifteen minutes. The key is to maintain a receptive, alert frame of mind, without drawing any conclusions, and free of concepts or thoughts. As you feel yourself gathering consciousness, allow yourself to flow with the momentum of this consciousness. 2. When your awareness begins to shift inward, close your eyes. Now watch the yantra imprinted in your mind’s eye, allowing it to gradually guide you within. 3. Do nothing, and you will find yourself participating in pure consciousness without the mind defining it. In other words, you will feel no need to tell yourself such things as “this is the experience I have been seeking” or “this is what people mean when they talk about enlightenment.” 4. Forget about looking for results as you meditate. Meditation brings us to a place of sensitivity wherein we experience a great interconnectedness with All That Is. This sensitivity generates a loving intimacy with everything we see, smell, touch, taste, hear, and intuit. 5. Meditation doesn’t bring joy, but joy comes when we are meditative. To be joyous requires a drastic shift in our perception of reality and a drastic change in our way of life. When this occurs, we are born again and sensitivity pours innocently from our “empty” heart. When you are ready, you may wish to take a deep breath, begin to move your toes and fingers, open your eyes, and become aware of your surroundings once again.

The Universe: Both mystics and scientists agree that beneath the visible veil of our separate physical reality, everything within the Universe exists as a unified whole or oneness. While scientists have come to understand and describe this oneness through their intellects, the mystics have come to understand and know it through meditation and personal experience. Our original home is where our physical and non-physical realities unite. We have called this unity God, Allah, Brahma, Great Spirit, Tao, Source, Beloved, Universe, Existence, and Presence. Buddha described it as emptiness or nothingness, and Zen describes it as isness, suchness, or the original face. Scientists have described it as the zero point energy or a quantum vacuum sea within which everything floats. I like to call it the Absolute. The Absolute is not Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu, or whatever beliefs we create around it. The Absolute is fundamentally unknowable, indescribable, intangible, and inseparable from all that is. To grasp this intellectually is to have a kind of understanding about God, but to experience it is to become God.
Our Original Home
by Eliza Mada Dalian Excerpted from In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness Â
Although it is impossible to describe it, those who have experienced it agree that within the Absolute, there is no concept of a separate “I” or “self.” Everything within it always exists in the present moment without beginning or end. The Absolute is within everything in existence, manifest or unmanifest, and it contains the life force of all past, present, and future creation. Everything that manifests into a physical reality can only exist within a limited realm of time and space, which in itself is ultimately part of the timeless and limitless Absolute. Even the minutest particle within the Absolute, like the tiny seed of a plant, has an inexhaustible power that can create countless galaxies. To experience the power of the Absolute is to know God and experience the pure joy of creation. The Absolute is an infinitely empty and yet full space. It appears as dark because of its depth and density. What makes the Absolute visible is the light that occasionally arises from within its emptiness. Everything visible and invisible within the emptiness of the Absolute exists through different energetic frequencies and sounds. Ultimately, all frequencies unify into an unmoving state of zero frequency or vacuum. In other words, all seven sound vibrations or notes unify into silence; all thought frequencies (positive and negative) unify into nothought or no-mind; and all seven colors of the rainbow unify into pure space that appears dark when it is invisible and as light when it is visible. This is the meaning of “all is one, and is God.”
...within the Absolute, there is no concept of a separate “I” or “self.”
As the human intellect is only a part of the Absolute, it is impossible to comprehend the emptiness or oneness of the Absolute, or what is beyond time and space, with the intellect alone. The Absolute can only be known through experience. Like two sides of the same coin, the Absolute can be divided into two major parts: unconscious energy, which absorbs all colors and sounds and appears as darkness; and conscious energy, which reflects all colors and sounds and appears as light. Unconscious energy has no self-awareness and contains dormant power with the potential to create, while conscious energy is aware of itself and has the active power to create. All conscious energies were once unconscious. They became conscious through the development of self-awareness. Before unconscious energy is transformed into consciousness, it receives nourishment from other conscious energies in the same way that life on Earth receives nourishment from the Sun. When unconscious energy transforms into conscious energy, a part of the darkness within the Absolute becomes visible or known. All the suns, stars, and galaxies reveal a part of the infinite darkness. It is like turning on a light switch in a dark room. The moment you turn on the light, the darkness disappears and you see all the furniture and space that is in the room. However, even within the things in the room, such as furniture, there remains more darkness. It is like having rooms within rooms; lighting up one room reveals another. This goes on infinitely. As more darkness transforms into light, more of the Absolute becomes visible and known and the universe appears to expand.
All the suns, stars, and galaxies reveal a part of the infinite darkness.
As the Absolute or the universe goes on expanding, the interplay of conscious energy and unconscious energy continually changes, but its unmoving center, which is an empty void, always remains the same for both.
no difference between the center of physical reality and the centre of nonphysical reality. In every cell and atom, within all that exists within the universe â€“ the centre is the same. Our being and the being of the universe exist within this single unmoving center. And we can experience this center of stillness by observing it in a place very near to us â€“ between our incoming and outgoing breaths, inhaling and exhaling as we go about our daily lives. We can, in other words, observe the Absolute manifesting itself through us simply by observing it through the witnessing awareness that is at the very core of our being. The witnessing awareness observes everything: the incoming breath, the outgoing breath, the constant stillness or gap between the two, and all experiences of creation and destruction, births and deaths, both within and without. The witnessing awareness is the thread between the physical world of time and space and the realm of the Absolute that exists in the Now beyond time and space. Whatever the level of consciousness or unconsciousness within us, and within anything in existence, everything revolves around the unmoving center of the Absolute. Stillness and rest are necessary after each moment of destruction for the seed of creation to germinate. Living the ongoing cycle of life and death, stillness and creation, consciousness and unconsciousness, is the essence of existence.
...everything revolves around the unmoving center of the Absolute.
The Absolute creates and expands infinitely, for no particular reason other than the Joy of creation. The Joy of creation is ecstasy. The longing to experience this Joy is in the heart of all creation. Joy makes creation and expansion possible because Joy not only arises from creation but fuels it. The Absoluteʼs longing to create and expand is also our longing and is the purpose of all life. You have experienced this many times in your own life when in a moment of silent stillness an idea suddenly pops into your mind. As you recognize its creative potential, you feel a rush of excitement and joy. When you manifest your creative ideas in the world, you use your life force and create a meaning for your life. This fulfills your innate existential longing to experience the Joy of creation and expansion.

By Robert Moss An Excerpt from Dreaming the Soul Back Home
In the Secret Library Diane始s uncle was a taxidermist. As a child, she was fascinated and also frightened by all the stuffed animals in his house. As an adult, she dreamed she returned to the room of the stuffed animals and they came alive. She understood they were not going to hurt her. They simply wanted to be understood. When she journeyed back inside this dream, the taxidermy specimens came alive again and began to teach her their nature, their habits, and their gifts. The wolf showed her how he could read a group, sensing unerringly who was for real and who was not, who was strong and who was sick or weak.
This time, she was able to go beyond the taxidermy room into the space of a library with books and images that reflected all of her dominant interests. She was amazed and delighted to find that this secret library contained a book that was all about her. It seemed that she had written this book herself. The title sang to her: I Am Celebration! Returning from her journey, she leaped into the air and shouted, â€œI am celebration!â€? She resolved to live in this spirit.
Author=Gunnar Ries Amphibol
What is in your secret library? You have been there in dreams. But the portal to your secret library could also be provided by a life memory. You may remember an actual library where your imagination was fired up by the discovery of new continents of possibility. It might be the library at your elementary school, or a public library you visited on Saturdays in childhood, or a favorite bookshop, or a book-lined room in a house, even your own home. Ask yourself to pull up from memory a place like this where you were excited and inspired by new ideas and fresh inspiration. Maybe what comes to mind is a museum, or an art gallery, or a curio shop, or a toy store. Though we始ll continue to call it the secret library, the space you are seeking need not be primarily a place of books, though there is at least one book here you are going to want to read, very much indeed. 360 view of Strahov Library in Prague
We are seeking a portal, a doorway from dream or memory that will allow you to move â€” in a rich journey of imagination
â€” into a place where you can access any kind of information that
interests you, on any subject that attracts your attention. In the secret library, you may be able to consult a librarian or similar figure who can help you find exactly what you are seeking. You may have contact with master teachers in your chosen field or the field that has chosen you. If you have the courage, you may even be able to look in your Book of Life, the book that will help you know more of who you are, including your connection with personalities in other lives, past and future, and the secret pattern in your current relationships. If you are very brave, when you look through your Book of Life you may be able to examine your sacred contract, which includes the assignment you agreed to accept before you came into your present life experience, and its terms and conditions.
Journey to the Secret Library You are about to enter a place where all fields of knowledge,
including deeper knowledge of your soul始s
purpose and connections, can open to you. The best will be revealed only as you seek it; you始ll know it when it lets you find it, not before. So you start by setting an intention, but you remain ready to let the journey take you beyond it. In the secret library, you can find information and inspiration in any area that rouses your active curiosity and your creative spirit. Anything that stirs the creative spirit in you is a matter of soul, whether it is golf or alchemy, cooking or astronomy, landscape gardening or writing. On a journey I led to the secret library, a yacht builder discovered a blueprint that enabled him to produce a new design for a racing yacht that won an important race in the Pacific. A landscaper had an encounter with a famous landscape designer from the past, who gave him ideas for a major job in the Hamptons that was so successful that the owners of the property gave him a large bonus. Not surprisingly, writers do very well in this journey. One woman writer met an antlered being who introduced himself as the spirit of her book-inprogress. He gave her specific ideas and the titles for three books she had not yet thought of writing. Remember a place like a library where you were excited by the discovery of new stories or images.
Picture yourself at the
entrance to this place.
See yourself opening the door and
stepping inside, and use all of your senses as you inhabit the space. See how the light falls across the room, smell the books, listen for the quiet sounds.
As you go deeper into this space, you will step beyond memory into a larger territory. There will be rooms and levels beyond the ones you know. You may encounter a librarian, or custodian, who can guide you. Librarians can be very interesting people, in any reality. Borges was a librarian. Madeleine L始Engle was a volunteer librarian, in New York. Even the notorious Casanova worked as a librarian, for a prince; engage his services, and you may find yourself in a rather adult section. In my own version of the secret library, I often encounter a librarian who looks like a tweedy Oxbridge don, with half-moon spectacles, but whose shadow is that of a bird with a long curving beak.
If you are among books, you will find that by opening any one, you can be transported into its realm.
Look at a picture, and you will find
that you can step through it, as through an open window. In your secret library, you may encounter master teachers in whatever field of knowledge or endeavor compels your passion and curiosity. Dead writers are rather easy to find. I have had many conversations with my Yeats in this space. A library of this kind offers resources beyond books. You may find yourself in a room of costumes, artifacts, maps, jewelry, even stuffed animals, whether taxidermy specimens or stuffed toys. I am pretty sure there is a library of teddy bears. You may be drawn outside, into territory where archives are kept in trees or stones.

InsideOUT overview here
InsideOUT fuses the wisdom of the ages with leading-edge science. It takes fractured ideas and weaves them into a beautiful tapestry.
InsideOUT is designed as a “coffee table” style book acting as a visual guide synthesizing complex ideas and making them simple to understand.
I hope it gifts you many ah h moments as it did me.
I was awakened at 4 am by a voice. I like to call it Source. It gifted me the outline for the book, guiding and inspiring me along the way. My quest was to know the heart and mind of God. As a child I always was curious about “God’s Designer Studio”. I was fascinated how he created so much variety. It seemed as though there was an endless array of creatures, no one of kind of anything. So from here you can explore some of the ways that God, the Force, the Field creates and innovates. This is what has come through to me. It seems when you have a question - events, people and “downloads/inspiration” come to the mind support your quest.
Teen Journey Goes to India to a Tibetan Monastery with INKARRI
Jangchup Lamrim Teachings by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet Cultural Exchange for Our Youth
Around The World And Into The Heart This fall 2012, Teen Journey and Inkarri offer the opportunity to experience a once-in-a-lifetime journey that takes young people around the world and into their hearts.
Come on this eye opening and soulinspiring trip to the sacred east and sit at the feet of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan monks in northern India. Experience first hand the ancient tradition of receiving direct teachings of spiritual knowledge from world masters as well as exploring the vibrant cultures both within and outside the monastery walls.

A Different Way. A New View. For the past four years, Teen Journey has offered an alternative program that dares to take the inner rather than simply the outer journey. Interacting directly with completely different traditions and cultures allows young people the unique opportunity to make informed choices about their world. This fall, Teen Journey teams up with Inkarri and the remarkable Juan Ruiz Naupari, in a rare invitation to visit the D a l a i L a m a ’s w o r l d - r e n o w n e d monastery where young people will be
exposed to sacred teachings, meditation and prayer. Additional work with Juan Ruiz includes Pneuma Breathwork with a brief introduction to the Path of Knowledge a syntesis of psychology and spirituality. In addition to morning satsang (listening to sacred teachings), there will be daily free time to play and interact with their peers: the young monks within the monastery, as well as visits into the bustling, rich culture of the market places and the mystery of this part of northern India.
As any parent knows, itâ€™s no good telling teens that drugs are bad for them, or that they should wait for their brains to fully develop before they start experimenting. They are not going to listen. They are going to follow their peers and find ways to get high, not simply because itâ€™s a rebellious thing to do, but because drugs provide something that is essential to the human soul.
Wisdom Tools for Teens Drugs allow us to experience mind-altering states of blissful euphoria and insights into life. Often there is a greater sense of connection. During adolescence, the psyche awakens and yearns for greater meaning and purpose. Ela Rezmer, a Vancouver, Canada interior designer and breath work facilitator, envisioned a program for youth that would empower and provide them with processes and tools they could use. She saw it as a place where everyone would be able to connect to each other, their purpose, and their own hearts. She knew there was a world of tools that would benefit young people. One of these tools was breath work, which she was in training for full certification.
As one teen put it, “Breathing really changed my perspective on life. It showed me I could share great experiences with my friends without the use of drugs like marijuana. It was a totally new experience.”
Ela points out that the trip to India will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young people to meet some of the wisest people on the planet. “Being in the collective environment of praying and meditating with thousands of monks is deeply nourishing for the young, growing soul. They need to experience first hand the depths of human nature. Only then can they tap into their own strength and wisdom so they can be a responsible participants in our global culture."
After four years of constant evolution, including the addition last year of a program for adults called Parent Journey, Teen Journey is ready to experiment further. This fall in conjunction with Inkarri, led by Peruvian born shaman Juan Ruiz Naupari, teens have been invited on their first The 2-week As one teen put it, “Breathing really global visit to program is Gaden Shartst changed my perspective on life.

The first meditators in history were the shamans whose practices for contemplation and connecting with the divine are echoed in virtually every spiritual tradition today. On Shamanic Meditations, Sandra Ingerman invites you to return to the source of human spirituality—and experience for yourself the enduring power of these ancient practices for healing, guidance, and awakening.
What is it that attracts shamans, mystics, and other visionaries to the experience of altered states? It is the fact that some wisdom cannot be accessed through ordinary consciousness alone, proposes Daniel Pinchbeck.
With seven guided meditations—called “journeys” in the shamanic tradition—from a renowned author and teacher, this twohour program features an overview of shamanic principles, guided practices for finding your “spirit teachers” and “power animals,” the shamanic initiation into oneness, and more.
On Reality 2.0: Shamans, Psychedelics, and the Next Step in Evolution, this trailblazer of nonordinary reality shares a firsthand account of his quest for a "system upgrade" for human society. Join this 21st-century explorer and philosopher-jour nalist for an intriguing investigation of: • •
