9 Rules For Living

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/09/20/10-tips-living-shaman/

“Here are 9 simple rules for living, as learned from proper Yagé shaman of the Amazon.

1. Abundant laughter is the hallmark of spiritual achievement. Laugh first and laugh often.

2. All life is beautiful and priceless, and even the most pitiful or comical of creatures is infused with the sacred.

3. Always be productive in the service to others, and even if all you can offer is a smile, your positive contribution is important.

4. Love everyone equally, for we are all equal in spirit and life.

5. Silence is golden. Communicating without speaking is more penetrative than attempting to express the infinite with language.

6. It is in stillness you will find that which you seek. The ability to highly control one’s impulses is the key to spiritual advancement.

7. Gentleness is often more powerful than force.

8. Sincere dedication to spiritual development is the highest calling in life.

9. Follow nature instead of following man, for the lessons in nature are universally true and infinitely pure.”

Your Subconscious Mind Can Be Reprogrammed

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/09/08/hindu-priest-explains-subconscious-mind-can-reprogrammed/

“As a spiritual tool, monks of the eastern traditions have been using mantras since time immemorial, most recognizably along with prayer beads. The value of this type of meditation is well-understood by practitioners, although, difficult to quantify. It offers a simple but powerful means of creating the emergence of desired positive outcomes in personality, habits, beliefs and emotions…

Speaking on how this process works, Hindu priest Dandapāni explains how mantras are similar to affirmations in how they work to reprogram the subconscious mind. In an interview with Brian Rose of London Real, Dandapāni answers the question of why the simple concentrated repetition of sound can so powerfully bring about positive changes in personal behavior.

“You can say they are prayer beads, but they’re actually more like affirmation or mantra beads. So, we use these to actually program our subconscious. So as we chant on each bead, we chant an affirmation. I am happy, or I’m confident. And we repeat the same chant over and over again, and there are 108 beads… one chant over and over again.”

There is more to it than just saying a phrase 108 times, however, and as he explains, three ingredients are necessary: “Concise choice of positive words, clear visualization, and a corresponding feeling.”

Regarding a corresponding feeling, he explains how feeling is emotion and emotion is energy, quoting the late Nikola Tesla.

“He [Tesla] had this beautiful saying which kind of encapsulates Hindu philosophy really well. He said that, ‘to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.’ Everything is made up of energy that’s vibrating at its own frequency. What we believe is that if your subconscious is filled with patterns that are vibrating at a certain frequency… and if you can go into your subconscious and create a pattern, infuse it with energy that’s vibrating at a certain frequency, you can attract things of a similar nature to it.”

The combined effect of intentionally applying sound, visualization and emotion to create positive change can override the contents of the subconscious mind.”

Neil Kramer : This Voluptuous Province

http://neilkramer.com/roamcast-22-this-voluptuous-province/

“Most people enter into spirituality as a lifestyle choice… People pretending to live spiritually, even to themselves, but who really are just adopting a fashion, going through the motions, however diligently, however long or short.  No inferno, no phoenix, no dark cavern, no harnessing, no cultivation,  no transformation.

So, it is with each passing year, I feel more and more, through meeting thousands of people across the world, that the true spiritual impulse embodied as a daily transmutational method is incredibly rare

People choose falsehood because it is easier

Are we to worry about judgment, discrimination, prejudice…?  No…  We are merely observing demonstrated behavior.  We ignore the words, we focus only on action. Being. The established evolutionary path of one person; how they have changed, how they have grown, matured, deepened. How they have attained equilibrium in their moment by moment being, and how they have attained alignment in their home, work, and fellowship.  These things can be judged very simply because they are impossible to conceal – very visible and prominent in a person’s life.  Only takes a few hours, maybe a few days, or at longest, a few weeks, to fairly establish the actuality of where someone is at. How they choose to live, how they evolve, or how they stay the same

Total quality judgment necessary… A conscious act of astute discrimination, essential to the spiritual human.  A crystal clear lens through which we may magnify all that is good and bad, and then make a decision. And we ought to use this magnificent instrumentation on ourselves a thousand times more than we ever turn it toward anyone else. The more we hone the seeing of our own internal state, the more we can comprehend what is outside, what is in the hearts of others

We are seeking to discern the authenticity of someone’s actions.  We want to know who is doing it for real; who has learned that, in transforming oneself in devotion to spirit, the secrets of the world are revealed – one by one.  In such a person, the wisdom is in their footsteps, not words.” ~Neil Kramer (Roamcast 22)

Neil Kramer : Paradox

http://neilkramer.com/

“From 2001 to 2009, I made many pilgrimages to the hallowed and ancient landscapes of Wiltshire, the county in South West England where the vast majority of global crop circles appear.  I learned much.  Some of my most epic experiences and moving revelations have emanated from the fields, woods, hilltops, and villages of Wiltshire…

I have walked in dozens of the largest and most intricate crop circles on record.  I have slept in them, meditated in them, held night vigils in them, had lunch in them, and done some other things that are best not talked about here.  I have analyzed their geometry, have measured ratios and circumferences, and have taken innumerable photographs.  I have learned to distinguish the authentic from the inauthentic, the terrestrial from the ultra-terrestrial… I have sat with the amateurs and the experts, the faithful and the scientific, absorbing all their theories and interpretations.  There has been lunacy and there has been brilliance… I have seen orbs of blue light zipping across the fields and watched glowing orange spheres hovering in the twilight sky.  I have been buzzed by military helicopters, met with ex-secret service agents, been photographed by zoom lenses poking through bushes, and had my hotel room gone over by clandestine figures. Quite an adventure…

The more circles I have experienced, the more I have come to know that only when all linear systems of thought are taken off-line and consciousness can flow freely through an untainted channel, does the primary teaching begin to unveil itself. Open-heartedness is more valuable in this respect than the intellect.  There is little to be gleaned by the mind that is fizzing with mental noise and egoic spasms.  The psychic tides must be allowed to naturally rise up and reform the inner landscape, submerging old reductionist concepts and sculpting new densities of graceful being.”

“Neil Kramer talks to Darren and Graham, hosts of Grimerica radio show.

‘Neil Kramer joins us for a fascinating chat about the mainstream control system, aspiring to be better people, the divinity of learning, and the spiritual path. We also chat about polarization, those who don’t really want to know the truth, wise elders who teach us discernment, home schooling, media corruption, and “the gathering” in upstate New York Sep 8-10, 2017 a place to meet conscious people, laugh and learn.’

“Your personal fulfillment is your sacred work…

Your gift, your job, is to fulfill yourself personally… to fulfill yourself intellectually, emotionally, sexually, psychologically, nutritionally, artistically. When you fulfill yourself on all levels of being, that is your sacred work because the path to that fulfillment will require a deep spiritual journey…

Your personal fulfillment is your sacred work, at the highest level. That is your path.”

6 Essential Keys to Spiritual Development

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/spiritual-development-6-keys.html

“The great teacher and spiritual leader Rudolph Steiner spent his lifetime searching for keys to living more consciously. He boiled down the wisdom of generations into six clear, powerful, simple guidelines.

Here, then are the six essential keys to a more aware and spiritually developed life:

1. Control of thoughts. We must master our thoughts, particularly our train of thought… We must reach the point where, at a given time in the day, we can become so absorbed in a thought that no other thought can enter and disturb our soul…

2. Control of our actions. Here it is necessary, occasionally at least, to act in ways that are not precipitated by anything external. Whatever is initiated by our place in life, our profession, or our situation does not lead more deeply into higher life…

3. Equanimity. People fluctuate back and forth between joy and sorrow. Thus we allow ourselves to be rocked on the waves of life. We must reach equanimity and steadiness. One must become steadfast and even-tempered.

4. Understand every being.  …Try always to approach what is wonderful in every phenomenon of outer reality. You will see that everything contains an aspect that can be affirmed…

5. Complete openness. Most people judge new things according to the old things they already know. But we must not confront a new communication immediately with our own opinion. We must instead always remain alert for the possibility of learning something new. We must develop the ability to listen, because it enables us to encounter matters with the greatest possible openness.

6. Inner harmony. We receive this after we have developed the first five keys. Those who have the other qualities are also inwardly harmonious.”
