Very much like Yogic practices indicating experience of peeling back layers of the “Kosha”, do we have the Qabalist “Four Worlds” as an explanation of how the psyche receives from the highest of Kether the intuition of Chokmah to be understood of Binah with the mercy of Chesed but strength of Gevurah and therefore intellectually guided Tifereth for an emotionally balanced purpose of Netzach with a service to others of Hod establishing a foundation in truth of Yesod, to bring “Unity Consciousness” or “Oneness” of Kether to the primal aspects that are concealed thereof and hence “Differentiated” allowing “Divine Speech” of Malkuth as described in Genesis 1 creating “Duality” found with “In The Beginning”.
In further detail, are we presented with the Qabalist “Divisions of the Soul”. From the supreme undifferentiated quality of mind that is pure do we have Yechida of Kether, where Divine Will is activated as Life Force in Chia of Chokmah, to provide higher aspirations of awakened-intuition in Neshamah of Binah, invigorating the ego-persona via the imagination in Ruach of Tifereth, which is assisted by memory in Chesed, will in Gevurah, emotion in Netzach, and intellect in Hod, to assist the grounded primal instincts separated by the Veil of Paroketh of the lower unconscious aura, etheric body, and shadow in Nephesh of Yesod, to activate the brain-body communication of the physical body in G’uph of Malkuth. Such provides balance to the “Garments of the Soul”, consisting of thought, speech, and action, as the prophet in Malkuth adorns the crown of “I Am That I Am” of Kether.
In differentiation to “the prophet”, the “God” would reach back further prior to the “Divisions of the Soul” to the “All Souls” quality of the initial pre-distortion known as Tzitmtzum to the original lucidity known as Elyon or prior “Fifth World” to the “Four Worlds” known as “Adam Kadmon”. Such will allow for Tohu and Tokun rectification of rebalancing the sefiroth known as Partzufim allowing the will or Atik Yomin of the “Ancient of Days” blessed by the “Ananda” of inner delight of pure “beingness and consciousness” of “Sat and Chit” found in the patience of Arich Anpin of Kether, to provide superconscious insight of Abba in Chokmah, to internalized understanding and comprehension of Imma in Binah, to the one with discernment and judgment capable of harnessing such marcroprosopus within a microprosopus of Zeir Anpin in Tifereth, to provide a place for divine immanance of Elokim and divine presence of Shekinah of Nukvah in Malkuth. The reason for requiring such rectification is due to the “shattering of the vessels”, particularly of Gevurah whose strength and judgment-discernment can become easily imbalanced creating “shells” on the “soul” creating further division and separation into “Duality” felt emotionally of Netzach and understood intellectually of Hod to subject ones subconscious for conscious-manifestation and assessment, requiring insight for rectification of such “shells” back into “Oneness” sourced from Elyon, the Ein Sof.
Such was the job of the “prophet”, who was capable of stripping the sheaths of conscious-awareness from dense material reality in order to “awaken” heightened intuition. The stance against idolatry, was to not ultimately follow archonic aspects represented by each sefirot which ultimately compose the video game reality of “dense matter”, which is the holographic illusion sprouting from the spirit known as “consciousness” subject or not subject to Tzimtzium distortions, but to return to the Ultimate Source, humanity’s true power of wisdom and dominion of heaven and earth presented as and interpreted through “Torah”. Such is presented by the Merkavah Mystic of the post Ezekiel Hekhalot material known as a “Yored Merkavah”, a messianic figure who essentially astral projects by ascending from Malkuth into Yesod to greet the Hayyot and Main Angels moving from the realm of action of Asiyah into the prior realm of formation of Yetzirah, where through nullification of beingness or Bittul HaMetzius the Yored Merkavah gains vision of the Realm of the Divine Throne moving from emotional Yetzirah into intellectual Beriah that is best described as creation ex-nihilo, only to be preceded by nullification of essence or Bittul Haetzam into the transcendental conscious-emanating/closing Atziluth subject to the original light of Kav that not only surrounds all worlds as Sovev Kol Omin but fills all worlds as Mimalei Kol Olmin by the upright-sefirot known as Yosher presented as “Adam Kadmon”, the transcendental to the “Four Worlds”.
The accomplishment of this task, or the main Jewish “Yogi” would be presented as Enoch, who ascended from Malkuth of Asiyah into the angelic realms of Yesod of Yetzirah, into the realm of the Divine Throne found in Tifereth of Beriah, where through such transition do we have the transmutation of the man Enoch into the angel Metatron enacting the Partzufim of Zeir Anpin as the microprosopus of the macroprosopus of Arich Anpin found in Kether of Atziluth, where Metatron is essentially “like” God having dominion of heaven and earth through his own crown only to compete with God’s angel Anafi’el who holds a signet ring of heaven and earth in the Hekhalot material.
As such, the psychological aspects of the Jewish prophet would need to open the physical aspects of Asiyah into the realm of action in Asiyah showing mundane angels to assist into the formative realms of Yetzirah for the main angels to further assist with ascent into Beriah the realm of the Divine Throne where creation is produced ex-nihilo, to be seeded by proper insight and harness understanding of the transcendental realm of the Shekinah or Divine Presence in Atziluth taken from the Crown of the Elyon, Adam Kadmon. Hence, the “Four Worlds” become psychological sheaths to be stripped away from mundane senses of Asiyah, to heightened senses of the theta-brainwave providing gnosis of other realms of Yetzirah, to working with such entities towards ego-nullification from the subtleties of “beingness” in Beriah to the transcendental “essence” of Atziluth, prophecy is to be obtained from the Supernal Realms due to its “nearness” to the Elyon which due to the transmutation by ego-death, nearby deifies the adept, as Enoch-Metatron holds his own “throne” at the entrance to the 7th Palace, the highest in the Hekhalot material, where he is “like” God.
As the prophets psychology is subject to such “sheaths” of the “Four Worlds”, the original prophets before Ezekiel’s time saw into Atziluth, the supernal transcendental realms, cloaked in the light of Beriah. In other words, the prophets around Solomon’s Temple time were easily capable of obtaining the insight of Chokmah with the understanding of Binah to easily provide the mercy of Chesed and strength of Gevurah using the imagination of Tifereth to provide divine sustenance without the Veil of Paroketh distorting intellect of Hod and providing balanced emotions of Netzach. Such prophets would behold the “Throne of God” and main angels subject to Hekhalot visions of God’s throne post creation ex-nihlio of Beriah where the essence of God descends from a higher “raqia” of Atziluth. Such would attest to the psychic-animist abilities of the prophets at least during King Solomon’s time and his Temple, where the Temple would be used to maintain such “sensitives” allowing one to be closer to God permitting transmission from amulet-type blessed “baetyls”, and also attests as to why global traditional-shamanic practices and resulting beliefs are quite similar resulting in egoic-conditioning degrative downgrades to gnosis-corrupted dogma known today as religion. Thereafter the destruction of the Temple in the 6th Century BCE, prophetic wisdom became difficult, as the prophets who simply “saw” into Atziluth via the covering of intellectual Beriah now had the covering of emotional Yetzirah. Ezekiel becomes one of the last prophets to take advantage of prophecy from the Supernal Realms writing of his vision experiences of the “Throne of God” and restoration of the “Land of Israel”, which appears quite national-archonic when taking into consideration the experiences of the later Merkavah Mystics of the Hekhalot material, with God’s right hand blessing or cursing Israel based on the heavenly and in comparison earthly liturgy to bless the egregore’s countenance. Moreover, the language used and culture derived is Phoenician, particularly that of the dominating “El” for which the “ang-el” is thereafter a mask, where “visions” of an egregore seeding “wisdom” in a hierarchal-gateway fashion is reminiscent of Tantrik geometry showing the “kingdom” of a deity with gatekeepers and its source as bindu from creation ex-nihilo, both cultures attempting to reach the transcendental Supernal Realms through negation of beingness and negation of essence, or neti neti. Like the Tantrik deity is defied as a Self-Realized “Bhagvan”, so the Merkavah Mystic was essentially a “Messiah” negating apocalyptic and messianic material with Enoch becoming the powerful angelic Metatron who is “like” God. Thereafter, prophecy ended post the destruction of Solomon’s Temple, where what remains is God’s Shekinah allowing for transmission in Malkuth allowing the lights of Yetzirah into the world of action in Asiyah for those capable of utilizing such techniques and prayers in the world of physical in material Asiyah.
Prophecy may have been rooted the same throughout the world, where including the Oracles of Delphi to traditions using psychedelic paraphernalia from drugs to drumming, was the input coming from an egregore, was it coming from pure consciousness, or was it coming from an egregore connected with pure consciousness, and to what psychological distortions is such flow inhibited by the Ruach coloring the character persona. Such brings us to Prophet Mohammed who may have connected to the same Phoenician based root due to language derivatives and tradition evolution of the Semitic cultures including the polytheism of Syria-Arabia, who needed to extract disciples from worship of what would be today aspects of the sefirot showing lower spirits to angels/djinn to archons, where God can only be defined by what God is not where at its most subtle level, would be negation of “beingness” and thereafter “essence” to reach the Elyon.
Nonetheless, such prophetic techniques were retained in Eastern Traditions, where running Vital Life Essence through the energetic meridians via Taoist movement of Earth and Cosmic energy in Kriya type practices allowing Vital Life Essence to develop an energy battery within the body like a developing embryo in the lower dantien, to self-inquiry practices of negation bringing the adept to pure-consciousness of “being aware, of being aware” dropping the emotional and intellectual mental bodies for the still of “beingness” further negating “awareness” into its “essence”, insight is fostered via “know thyself” causing “syncronistic” changes in one’s life one can only label as “prophetic”.

When you interact with a nonphysical entity, the information you receive is filtered through the structures of your mind. These structures, in turn, depend on the imagery and concepts of the cultural mythologies you have inherited." -Crowley, Rose, Satan
Most beginner texts on chakras or mantras, held significant provisions against proceeding with such practices if one was not ready to shift perspectives, and hence possibly the direction of their life. However, these texts failed to provide detailed analysis of the psychological process discussing mostly procedural-process. In doing such practices, you are essentially purging the light-body of dense perspectives that limit/direct the flow of consciousness, and hence, the flow of vital-life-essence (manipulatable prana). Conscious focus on each area of a designated chakra tends to release conditioning/programming associated with such chakra, leading to dark night psychological processing. By focusing on the light body aspects, or rather not focusing (neti, neti) to cause an intense flush, causes the physical body to react due to prior issues, traumas, and mental patterns embedded in muscle-memory giving the psychological adage of "bottled-up" emotions.
Just as one shouldn't make decisions when suffering from the emotion of "anger", like radio flipping through stations, the mind tends to gravitate towards "thoughts" at an "emotional" frequency, where the typical human mind-set is often governed/dictated by the individuals sway of emotions. Moreover, should one "clutch" in anger, such should give the feeling of how the muscles would be embedded by memory, particularly if an emotion or mental-habit is continuously repeated.
Hence, with cleanse of dense "beliefs" that distort perception at the light-body level, the physical body will react with muscular tension release which may show "dense" memories, all the while bringing the adept closer to clarity of perception, undistorted awareness, and the "bliss" of dropping one's psychological baggage (a relaxation to the central nervous system, a break from chasing heaven/hell) known as "Ananda" in Self-Realization circles. Nonetheless, the drastic shift in perspective causes tangible changes not just physically, but like peeling back the layers of an onion, the adept may not find themselves as the same person as they were before.
The Enochian Calls relate to the Biblical "Enoch" only by name, hence the two (2) should not be confused. Rather, the name "Enochian Calls" relates to "Angelic" Magick, a divination system channeled from the works of the pious-religious John Dee (007) and the crooked-scryer Edward Kelly. The essential aim of the calls is using the Angels for "Enlightenment", or to return humanity before the "fall of man". As occultists Jason Louv describes, as a representation of the entire universe, the effects of the practice are not solely for the individual adept, but holds the potential for mass change, or rather the "revelation" of divine information defined as "apocalypse".
Prior to such rituals, or "calls" (total of 30), the adept is asked to build furniture and complex occult symbols such as the Sigillum Dei Aemeth. As has been my practice, such externalities are mainly a way to "court" with such energies to be conjured, where the adept builds the psychological-momentum to "commune" with such energies. Hence, practices such as the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram come in handy in building a rapport, or the use of psychic techniques such as that of Dr. Lauren Cielo (Golden Rose Psychic), to begin an experiential-feeling-understanding of Angelic energies. Such energies appear to transform the astral body, creating a trickle-down-effect towards the physical. Nonetheless, I've taken note that without any prior experience, Jason Louv's audience all had vision-type experiences, as Mr. Louv provided one (1) meditative "Call" for his audience through his course-work. The authors experience will be described below.
Jason Louv provides the clearest explanation of what is required under his course-work and book "John Dee and the Empire of Angels", having synthesized the prior work material on said subject from occult greats including Lon Milo Duquette. Just as the gnostic works of Carl Jung have been "shunned" by society for later print during more "progressive" time-periods, including others with far-stretching ideologies including Wilhelm Reich, Bruno and Tesla, John Dee is another genius whose occultism is often downplayed to stress his numerous other accomplishments. Such shows the societal-communal-programming that pervades society, creating a rather ignorant/uninformed "reasonable person standard", sheep-mentality which occult practices seek to undo. After John Dee and Edward Kelly, it was Aleister Crowley and Victor Benjamin Neuburg who provided us with "The Vision and The Voice" addressing his visionary experiences from ritually expressing the Enochian Calls. Thereafter, we have the brilliant Jack Parsons work product he compiled, with the devious L. Ron Hubbard, which paved the way for his "Babalon Working".
Left Hand Path:
There are occultists-authors who have swapped the El/Yahweh (Judeo-Christian) themes for Heylal (Lucifer) not only as a means of deconditioning and removing oneself from the limitations of religion, but it becomes quite political between the ancient Canaanites and the adoptive-Semites. In addition, John Dee was a pious Christian, where ancient grimoires are done from a Judeo-Christian perspective of dominating under "El/Yahweh's" authority as opposed to recognizing one's own Will. From the tantrik perspective, mantras are to be done as "Shiva" as one's own "God-Authority-Perspective" as the human/will/ego tends to distort/limit potential. Those on the western LHP tend to adopt such attitudes choosing to be sovereign, viewing deities/guides as energetic potential for personal empowerment.
Nonetheless, I would recommend the Angelic form of Enochian, at least to begin and should be enough to move an adept forward in doing practices relatable to both Right and Left Hand Paths. Particularly the infusion of the "Enochian Language" with other systems, where I have discovered and used Enochian "mantras" for Left Hand Path rituals as described under the Temple of Ascending Flame. Therefore, the Enochian Calls will move you forward in working with occult practices generally, where in effect as an aftermath, my own sensitivities had significantly ripened making the practice of Shakti-mantra thereafter significantly more energetically "boastful".
In addition, for western occultists, the work product of John Dee is where we are offered the name of the feminine half of the "the Beast" who resides in the qabalist abyss (Daath), "Choronzon". While modern-day Abrahamic complexities seek to establish anything "not them" as "evil, devil, dark, etc.", where the Old Testament appears to be more so propaganda-type politics of the "chosen ones" in opposition (satan; adversary) to other groups thereafter being demonized, the Enochian Calls point to a clear-cut archetype for adepts to understand/comprehend/experience the "Beast" or what John Dee referred to as "that Mighty Devil". Provided that Daath is the gateway to the dark tree, Enochian "mantras" are also quite beneficial in opening particular sefirot/qliphot for experiential-exploration. As Daath stands between the top three sefirot (supernal triad) leading towards Self Realization and the bottom seven sefirot representing the "fall of man", Choronzon challenges identities, concepts, mental-constructs, as an ego-death purity process before the adept proceeds to the ordeals of Binah (Saturn). Such "trials and tribulations" can be found/experienced through the workings of Asenath Mason on the Qliphoth. Do note, the deconditioning of the Left Hand Path, is adversarial-antinomian, and quite energetically-powerful in the path of Self-Deification. This ain't your momma's nonduality, unless your momma is a badass. In addition, nondual perspective moves well-beyond a "merge" or "lack of differentiation" between the perceiver (subject) and the perceived (object) as "awareness" grasps "awareness", where sattvic, raja, and tamas modes of personality, all appear to be conditioned requiring an adversarial truth seeking modality to break away from herd-mentality and establish sovereignty.
In summation, I found the Enochian Calls to be extremely rewarding in developing psychic sensitivities and gaining recognition/authority in the Angelic realms. Moreover, I've taken note that Angels in these practices are not exactly in opposition to Demons, but rather "stop being distracted" as Angels may take on more vicious teacher like standards. In addition, like Jack Parsons who chased after Babalon, my initial experience in beginning with the 30th Call raised visions of Goddess Parvati. As with my prior description, please relate to Jason Louv's course-work in proceeding with the Enochian Calls, where he makes the calls quite easy for adepts to immediately utilize, with an overall better understanding of the system and its history.
The Vision and The Voice (Innerstairwell):
-The Vision and The Voice (Visionary Comparison)
-John Dee and The Empire of Angels (Jason Louv)
I'm providing my visionary notation for comparison with other adepts. Each of the 30 calls (done in reverse order) were conducted rather quickly to fit within my work schedule. Such should be done timely for psychological and physical adjustments and whatever external changes may occur as a result thereof (as within, so without). Do understand the "tower" card of the tarot as required before meeting the "star".
Personally, after each call, I would feel a significant energy drain requiring sleep soon thereafter, not longer than three (3) hours, so prepare accordingly. Moreover, do not become fanatical about visions or experiences, but question everything down to its core and continue to collect seeds of evidence to flower into something more. Avoid conditioning yourself and limiting yourself into not just the dogma of others, but your own personal beliefs.
The 30th Aethyr:

consciously return to body (ground).
(Done under a video group teaching with Jason Louv, where audience members all had their own experiences.

The Enochian Calls have significantly pushed my psychic-sensitivities, and as I have felt, created a "standing" or a "signature" in the multidimensional universe recognizable by other astral entities. As such, working with Angels had intensified, mantras are more boisterous, and the Enochian language is further used in other occult practices, including Asenath Mason's Qliphothic workbooks. Such practices help the adept not only push towards the "empty" of "enlightenment" (deconditioning all identities and constructs), but work with archetypal energies to help adepts stand on their own feet in getting the most out of their lives.
When it comes to Occult practices, find teachers who have been there and done that, as opposed to the ignorant competitors plaguing mainstream spiritual markets (including the ones listed on my blog), who hide behind terms such as "the highest", or "authentic", "soul", "true self", etc., spiritual teachers rip each other off, including marketing gimmicks and narcissist-type expressive style, and brush off legitimate competitors in favor of culling kiss-ass sheep. As I have found, Occultist are the only ones doing their homework properly, scientifically (Psychology meets Physics), when it comes to spirituality (and well-beyond to be a well-rounded individual). I also do not trust a teacher who is afraid of the dark, as they can only perceive half the picture, or will portray a distorted/biased surface-based perspective, something I've continuously seen among agenda-type spiritual teachers. I hope my "vision and voice" has been helpful and an ode to sincere seekers, as the torch of those occultists before us is handed to a new generation.
I have found that in many instances the secret elect are absolutely right when they state that "people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals who do not have intelligence".
Interesting times plague us and force us into predicaments that force us off our egoic driven paths. Often times, an individual suffers from an ailment causing bedridden detox, which also shifts the individuals psychological processes. A quick break to reassess and readjust, or an attempt to pull-back for some release and psychological reset, a recharge before returning to the doer-ship of the character's role. Busy Southern California can express another "predicament" example, with the amount of auto traffic congestion creating stop-and-go nuisances significantly extending travel duration. In such an environment, individuals are forced to sit with themselves with minimal doer-ship, and is probably the only time allowed for such individuals to do as such given the busy "domesticated" lives humans have penned around themselves. The current human infrastructure looks quite similar to the past, all stemming from the times of "slavery" to a "master" who fed/sheltered the slave, which is basically now just "human capital" to a "legal entity" who also pays for the feeding/shelter of the "accounting book asset" where "maximize shareholder profit" underpins the theology of free-market economics. Domesticated sheep equals paradise for the shepherds.
On a personal note, I've spent much of my life in books, academia, and the professional training grounds. I'm a nerd, for the sake of appeasing my curiosity, which only expresses the Sagittarius-wisdom-character being played of a "know it all". My nieces and nephews have already stated that the author "knows everything". As an example, my niece one day had randomly asked me, "when were electronics invented?". The question was a bit too general, but I gave the example of Benjamin Franklin flying a kite would be a good place to research, though I also described that scroll-vases were found in the Middle East that may resemble batteries. My niece could have easily used her fancy phone to look up the answer, but she chose to ask me instead because of the "know it all" expression. However, I've also realized that most have difficulty understanding me or the numerous topics that I can generally articulate. Another example using my nieces two brothers sharing a conversation with the author, my nephew asks, "how do you manage to come up with big words for everything", only to have his younger brother shout at me with, "speak English!". At least the younger generation attempts to understand, whereas the older attempts to shift the topics, or worse, throw a tantrum.
Nonetheless, there is something about my academic background that is differentiated from other forms of academia. Law School is an academic brain aneurysm, a pessimistic adversarial environment, where professors attempt to forge students to handle the rigors of being under-fire within a courtroom, with the ability to represent everyone putting aside the lawyers own conditioning and self-interest. First year they scare you to death, second year they work you to death, and third year they bore you to death, a short break before the dreaded bar exam. Unlike other forms of academia, law school follows the "Socratic Method", where in viewing the facts of a case/scenario, the student is asked to discern the issues that need to be tackled, the rules/statutes to be applied, with an analysis of each aspect/element of a rule with the factual scenario to derive at a conclusion/ruling. Hence, professors do not lecture, but dauntingly ask students questions on cases studied to navigate the student to come to their own analysis and conclusions. Like Socrates, Socrates did not lecture a teaching, but simply walked around asking people challenging questions that forced them to frighteningly reassess long held beliefs, ideas, and conceptualizations. However, such methods of inquiry, also lead to Socrates' death.
In a recent family visit the prior year, at a gathering to honor a deceased relative where distant-relatives were present, the author took a gander at the Socratic method with some relatives, as we moved somehow from prayers to political debates. Two male relatives, one was a diligent student who entered the military and worked hard for his lot, the other more on the party end of education though nonetheless quite well-read, diligent, and professional. Nonetheless, one went the nationalist Trump route, with the other going the socialist Sanders route. Though the author had stopped watching the news around 2007, I had noticed that the arguments being presented were quite "old", as in, one sounded like he was Fox11 News (Republican Agenda Journalist) while the other sounded like he was CNN News (Democractic Agenda Journalists) in the way they attempted to argue "policy". The typical Republican is arguing that we need someone in office who understands business, the typical Democrat is arguing that we can just print money to pay for the necessities. In truth, both stated something "emotionally" which is why they blindly hold onto political policies, where one stated, "we need to teach our kids value, hard work, effort", where the other stated, "we need to take care of folks". Both are sound arguments at essence, but when it came down to the "Socratic Method", their understanding of policy crumbled even if they could not witness such in the moment due to continued conditioning.
The Republican was strictly anti-socialist, bringing up decades old arguments of Ayn Rand's brand of capitalism. Nonetheless, in asking the relative to define socialism, and actually providing situations where such has occurred due to cut-throat Darwinian Capitalism (Sandinistas) where the first thing the government does is feed the masses who have been robbed by "maximize shareholder profit" agendas (creates revenge through "by an means necessary" type revolutions), the relative was really being challenged to reassess his position. However, what really hit home was when I had addressed the fact that the military itself uses a lot of socialist ideas/policies, for which the relative had to reassess and say "hey, I think I would agree with that" when discussing further details. The Republican understood socialism as everyone is going to be paid the same as in all are of the same value in all circumstances, where my understanding of socialism is that people own production which then has the historical outcome of dictatorship rule. In a separate conversation continuing this discussion, the Democrat was leaning extremely "Orwellian" big-government, so long as the government provided some funds. He believed that humans would be* garage-engineers innovative with such monetary gains, where the author could only picture Dave Chappelle's skit regarding reparations playing in his head as a rebuttal. In addition, the author also attempted to explain that the government cannot and does not actually, just willy-nilly print money, as that would drastically effect pricing on consumer goods based on the economic supply/demand models, which would further continue inflation and degrade the value of currency and is the alleged reason why the Federal Reserve (Private Institution*) exists. The relative just looked at the author, nodded his head and said, "nooooo". That pretty much ended that topic of discussion within that conversation. But, that left the author wondering, "huh, I guess* that's why you don't do business with *liberals*". Nonetheless, such shows that many are simply just repeating the mouths of the mercenary-journalists of the six (6) corporate owned "social engineering" system known as the "media", without even being able to adequately assess and analyze the policies being presented. The media understands your emotions as in "we need to teach our kids value" and "we need to take care of each other", and attempts to capitalize all the while providing policies that pacify sheep or distract. With the passage of time, I've only heard that those two (2) relatives are still refuting in an extremely heated banter, with *modern technology* making *it* very easy to* continue such* "togetherness".*
The United States political system, is one which has become of a separatist institution. While the six (6) corporate owned media attempts to show politicians and policies as reflecting the issues of society, vice-versa also plays a hand where politicians will capitalize on the issues of society such as "global warming", a conspiracy theory which did not gain much scientific ground until Al Gore. Prior to 2002, scientists had some different assessments regarding "global warming" as well as its lack of reversible nature. (Author did a freshman College paper regarding climate* change and Bush W's Kyoto Protocol; 2002). Moreover, in digging deeper into the two-party system which seem to be taking notes from the same "game book", both parties oscillate *between* each other in *pacifying* sheep. As an example, the author would credit Republican Reaganomics/Free Market Economics for the business deregulation which led to the Enrons, Worldcoms*, etc. Such made it easier for the rich to do business without control (free-market) and are reminiscent of gangster-capitalist ideals which is a factor in why one should incorporate in Nevada. Nonetheless, the Democratic response of business regulation typical of a big-government agenda, created costly regulations destroying smaller business, but keeping the top *contenders* in a monopoly environment, as these companies can afford the audits required for regulation. Such politics continues with Bush W presenting the extremely unpatriotic patriot act which defies the liberties the founding fathers presented, and Obama continuing to be a "banker" President as found when attempting to navigate the consumer laws around lender litigation for the 2007 debacle.
The secrecy of judicial deliberations is an example of professional mystification. Professions such as law and medicine provide essential services that are difficult for outsiders to understand and evaluate. Professionals like it that way because it helps them maintain a privileged status. But they know they have to overcome the laity's mistrust, and they do this in part by developing a mystique that exaggerates not only the professional's skills but also his disinterest. Judges have been doing this for thousands of years and have become quite good at it - so good as to have achieved a certain opacity even to their fellow legal professionals, including law professors as well as practicing lawyers. Judges have convinced many people - including themselves - that they use esoteric materials and techniques to build selflessly an edifice of doctrines unmarred by willfulness, politics, or ignorance." -Richard Posner, How Judges Think
In summation, Humanity holds dearly to ideas, concepts, and belief systems, but such is done blindly as most of these individuals will fail in articulating their positions. Instead of reflecting and analyzing, deconditioning and restructuring, most are living intensely within their conditioned boxes reminiscent of Plato's Cave. In a world of wikileaks, panama papers, etc., where you have the six (6) corporate media essentially doing it's best to ignore* third-party candidates or anyone who steps out of bounds in what the media calls "truth" such as John McCain and Tulsi Gabbard with Syria, it baffles the author why others do not see these "hints". Though such arguments were geared towards politics, such is true for almost every belief that we hold unquestioned, and humanity has many. When it comes to politics, journalism, healthcare, business, religion (incl. science), etc., like with a legal client, if you want to assess the truth of the client's situation, it's not in the words of the client who may or may not be embellishing their story that is subject to their memory and salesmen opinions, but the truth is typically found in the financial documents. In other words, to get to the truth in almost every aspect of society, just follow the trail of money. Just ask the lobbyists to all of our politicians, such as Hilary's long-time friend, the Democrat Trump. (49:18).
Humanity is currently facing a pandemic, an interesting one where individuals are forced to remain home with non-essential production taking a cease-fire. Much of humanity, is actually being forced to live, as how the author lives, as I have been mostly isolated for the past couple of years. When your thought-process is that as the above-mentioned, you tend to not want to listen to as many opinions, where I had reverted to stay by myself and continue with my spiritual practices. Nonetheless, it is quite shocking* to see fellow introverts expound animosity due to isolation, where it hasn't even been a month yet into statewide orders. The year of 2019 was quite intentionally isolated for myself with part-time employment, as I merely worked with Advaita Vedanta and Left Hand Path ("LHP") practices to push Beyond my own conditioning and move towards Empowerment. But, it was also the year where there were very few human beings outside of Advaita/LHP that I could tolerate, where conditioning and personalization creates characters projecting self-interests as opposed to intelligent discourse. In other words, when most humans are asked to question like Socrates, or if they're provided with contrary information, most humans will simply pick a side and throw a tantrum, as opposed to reevaluation and reassessment. Such was noted continuously in 2019, as I began to understand why Shakyamuni placed "Sangha" with significant importance of being one of the three jewels for refuge. To be around others who have deconditioned and are not "full-of-themselves" and their ideations would be a breath of fresh air. However, 2019 was extremely interesting as I was about done with "light worker" judgmental healers, who actually sounded more like Trump* type capitalists, wanting notoriety and fulfillment of desires where the only true desire is Self (liberation from desires) all else is ego appeasing ideations and concepts through the biological senses, in addition to conjuring business using horrendous comparable-marketing tactics. From what I've seen in 2019, many spiritual teachers may need at minimum a business communications course, and a lesson on cultural appropriation, where Eastern philosophy is basically being Roman Christianized (Heaven/Hell) (Christ/Anti-Christ), etc., to suite the teachers/adepts agendas. Without study or basic knowledge thereof, people just grasp onto concepts, and then wear it on their sleeve. Many such individuals subject to such puritanical strict belief systems, including the low/high vibrational camps (instead of limitation/expansion) sound reminiscent* of those who would crucify a "Lamb of God".
Hell, the punitive afterlife of the Christian religion, is arguably the most powerful and persuasive construct of the human imagination in the Western tradition. A subterranean realm of eternal suffering, a prison for sinful souls governed by a fallen angel who surpassed all other creatures in wickedness, Hell has inspired fear and thereby controlled the behavior of countless human beings for more than two thousand years."
The current pandemic that has lead many towards isolation, is like being stuck in a traffic jam in Southern California, where humanity is forced to take a breather, where humanity's break is also giving mother nature a breather. Really, 2019 was the year where I looked at humanity like it was sick, vomiting emotional issues using political/racial/social/economic underpinnings, as if humanity really needed a slap in the face. Truthfully, most individuals are nowhere near as smart as they "think" and how "they" present themselves, an arrogance that creates further cognitive blockages, and many social platforms are a reflection thereof with this "troll" type phenomena. The pandemic reaches right towards root chakra issues, threatening safety and security regarding the routine lifestyles and standard-of-living humanity has become accustomed in developed nations. Such blessings have yet to reach many, particularly in* Countries raped by armed-robbery type colonialism, where like a lawless casino/capitalist creating the socio-economic-financial structures, "the house always wins". Humanity is forced to drastically reassess it's *belief systems*, whether individuals will continue with Darwinian competition or actually make decisions to benefit not "short-term gains" or "long-term profits", but the LIVELIHOOD of the Next seven (7) generations. With the Threat to our economic models, our health, our education systems that still required an overhaul to move beyond packing-in information to useful practical application, in its ability to address an uncertain future, humanity's ways will need to Change! Provided the mess humanity has placed itself within, the Coronavirus may be what humanity needed to avoid self-destruction, and also, probably a ScapeGoat for the elite to distract from whistle-blower transparency Or other Agent Smith type Agendas*. The global pandemic is what Humanity may have Needed, like in a Socratic Self-Inquiry modality, to begin deconditioning and deconstructing the Filters that separate humanity by and through conflicting ideations into a Holistic celebrated Individuated-Collective! Nonetheless, such may entail humanity facing its own demons, where humanity currently faces death to hopefully Seize upon the Moment, FINALLY!
From our currently known timeline, Vedic literature and practices remain some of the most ancient forms or spiritual techniques to utilize "consciousness" (Shiva/Light) with the adept's subtle "vibration" (Shakti/Energy) to produce the projected hologram considered "material reality" (Nara/Mass). Such is specifically taught within the pre-yogic/psychological school of Samkhya, which traditionally appears to be the root of the evolved tradition known as Saivism. Through such teachings, adepts were able to harness the experiences of "material reality", either as an illusion of Shakti (Mahamaya) freely dancing before Shiva, or a delusion of Shiva veiled and addicted to Shakti (maya) as consciousness becomes drunken by the play (Lila) of the pain/pleasure (heaven/hell) sensory mind-body.
For the ancients to conjure such philosophy, which creates the backdrop ideology for many physicists such Einstein, Tesla, Oppenheimer, etc., is a degree of evidence to depict that maybe the ancients were doing a bit more than sitting around a campfire engaging mental phantasms into the night as typically imagined by our current evolutionary models presented in academia. From the occult practices of scrying, particularly in the use of grimoire yantra/sigil based practices, though an adept may produce certain signs/symbols or full-blown apparitions within, say a "black mirror", it is the opening of the subconscious that allows such vibratory currents to enter the environment including the adept's vessel that creates the gnostic phenomena. Such is differentiated from normal feeling states, as whoever is conjured will produce unique frequencies, such as Angels or Deities, who produce wider ecstatic states not typically experienced through general human lifestyles.
Though the ancient nomadic lifestyle does hold some resemblance to the modern camping trip, with story-telling campfire, because of the lack of mental conditioning creating belief-systems that limit the human potential, such individuals may have practiced what our anthropologists have described as "animism". To prove "animism" in relations to "monism", an adept who is capable of applied kinesiology (muscle testing) can in "stillness" sit with a plant and ask questions such as the need for water, where the adept in "stillness" will then wait for the appropriate subtle muscular response indicating an answer. When such practices are utilized, a new form of communication with the surrounding environment is created rendering "animist" ideologies, showing connectivity and responsiveness to the adept's consciousness supporting "monism". Just as Angels or Deities create different feeling states, such is also found in the denser realms as plants, animals, etc., begin to each take on a different frequencies, which the adept may similarly subtlety feel in communion. It is important to note, that the Saiva tradition is tantrik-occultism, with the development of "sensitivities" or psychic abilities, including multidimensional exploration (akashic records, etc.) on the path towards Self Realization, or Siddha development.
The word "occult" should not be defined negatively, as the word equates to what the Pharisees/Saducees labelled John the Baptist's practices, Essene. Such evidences that being nailed to the cross and burned at the stake are synonymous. Moreover, the Catholic and Angelican Church have utilized Angelic magick in addition to numerous other occult-esoterica, all the while creating enforced bans in order to monopolize on potentially dangerous information. Nonetheless, the concepts the ancients studied and articulated are quite philosophical beyond root chakra survival tactics expected of the time periods, and rituals are quite detailed all meant to create a psychological-archetypal-cocktail to assist the adept in navigating towards internal gnosis. In other words, did Moses, a man trained in the Egyptian mystery schools speak to a random burning bush, or did he practice some of form of Angelic magick akin to the Temple of Solomon, such as the Shem HaMephorash. To take a gander at global spiritual history, the elite have always practiced something different, while presenting the masses with corporate style colonial institutions to establish a "divine monarch" based on limited texts, with limited room for assessment, and belief systems where elite shepherds can easily control sheep navigating their pain/pleasure body. Therefore, no actual separation of Church and State, despite the masonic attempt to build a New Atlantis symbolic of Liberty.
As opposed to heaven/hell systems plaguing modernity, scriptures point to humanity falling from "grace", or entering a dark period of "ignorance", which should beg the question of what was humanity like before the fall? It appears, that humanity was quite powerful in terms of consciousness exploration, and utilizing multidimensional awareness. As described in Qlipthoth practices, it is through Goddess Lilith that one is capable of navigating the subconscious in the Western traditions. As described in Tantrik practices, it is through Goddess Kali that one is capable of navigating the subconscious in the Eastern traditions. Both "wildings" stand above the male and chant God's name through invocations and mantras, a practice often prohibited. In diving into the adept's subconscious, the adept is essentially taking on the role of the Mesopotamian Innana/Astarte/Ishtar in diving into the deeps of hell for her beloved for reunion via alchemical marriage, to resurrect from the dead as a Goddess. Hence, at minimum, the ancients most likely held powerful psychic abilities, many of which still act as guides in indigenous cultures. This was a time where humanity walked the Earth as Siddhas.
In entering the dark age of ignorance, where man falls and is clouded from its connection to the divine as shown in the Qabalah where man in Malkuth is reaching for the Supernal Triad, those in the k(g)nowing created art forms, or spiritual/religious "permission slips" to guide adepts navigating their way through "material reality"with belief-limitations limiting the human potential. In the Abrahamic tradition, the fall from "grace" is represented by Eve, who marks the tradition for a veiled feminine, or a pacified feminine in contrast to Lilith. As both Lilith and Kali represent the subconscious, and are symbolically represented as the "Dark Mother", in the East the Goddess is praised but feared whereas the West has sought to differentiate and separate Lilith with Eve creating psychological belief systems that are then met with us versus them fanatical mentalities. In essence, the refusal to acknowledge Lilith, the Shadow aspects of an adept's conscious for which Lilith acts as a guide, is to continue to project onto the world psychological issues held within the subconscious. The adept moves blindly, hoping for external saviors oscillating between pain/pleasure, never looking to grasp the inner core of their "beingness" covered by mental conditionings. In the East, Kali is the ultimate kundalini flame, black as she devours all programming in liberating the adept from their attachments, another subconscious guide which returns the adept back to Shiva, Consciousness, God.
In comparing both the Vedic tradition with Jewish mysticism, numerous parallels arise, including the sanctity of sound and the use of such in a vibratory fashion to effect change. Both Brahmins and Rabbis indicate that individuals need to be "pure", etc., to engage such practices, including prayers (invocations/evocations) where such languages are to have holy "celestial" origin. Moreover, the syntax of the way the terms are presented become important in effect, where Hebrew has taken it further with gematria. Such languages have been used via multidimensional consciousness to commune with numerous astral (star) beings for guidance, some may assist the adept in ascent, some may challenge. The adept should note that the Hebrew language is not Semitic in origin, but from the land of Canaan, where the primitive nomadic Semitic groups completely adopted another culture, including religious practices. Nonetheless, the intent behind spiritual practices, or where you vibrationally place your consciousness becomes important, while some seek Self (Brahman/Kether), others may seek a governing monarch.
In entering the fall of man, or dark yugas, the Siddhas presented numerous art forms to assist the adept to ascend the tree of life. Just as in ancient Mesopotamia, the Vedic system continued such practices including astrology. Further, such arts as medicine, gemstones/amulets (prana-prathista), ritual invocation/evocation, and philosophical schools that provided the backdrop for physics are found within these Vedic texts, where the term Vedas simply means "knowledge". Hence, Vedic-Yogic systems were designed for the "yoking" or reunification with Self all the while assisting the adept navigate "material reality" based on their natural desired interests and conditionings. Within the Vedas are specific esoteric teachings known as the "Upanisads" referring to basically, the "cream of the crop", which like Hermetic philosophy, is geared towards Self Realization. Such were provided via oral traditions, as it was necessary that vibratory transmissions be provided to help adept's navigate their own vibrational field where teachings became "experiential". Through such practices, the adept is brought back to Source, relinquishing the need for further knowledge, or rather, any accumulated knowledge. As such, in "realizing" the "cream of the crop", you come to "Vedanta" meaning "the end of knowledge". Such would mark the return of the Siddhas, a "unified/connected" way of existence by means of "as within, so without", which would enact a global renaissance.
The gods and demons live within, because you, at the highest levels of your consciousness, are in fact the Universe, and everything that can be thought, sensed or experienced emanates from that singular point of infinite nothingness.
Self Realization is taught by every awakened master whose walked the globe, where such masters teach awakening in the environment and context of their surroundings (religions/culture). The names range from the Shankara lineage, Ramana Maharshi, Yogananda, Rumi, Hafiz, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Kabir, Ouspensky, etc., to express the differentiation in environment, which becomes further the backdrop and goal of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and every major mystery school including Hermetic and Rosicrucian. The term for Self-Realization expressed in Hinduism, is "Brahman", which mirrors the definition/experience of "Kether" or the crown of the Qabalist Tree of Life, showing the Abrahamic traditions are also rooted in such teachings by and through its esoteric literature. Though Self is the backdrop of all experiences and ability to experience, it is through ego-death practices of deconditioning belief systems that personalize the character and the character's experiences, where one "realizes" the Self that has always been present. In other words, underneath the character conditioning and the roles it plays is the true Self, where Hindus often give the label to such accomplished individuals as Bhagwan or "God" provided that such individuals provide transmissions to help others come to the same realization experientially.
Though many texts and religions have articulated Self Realization, such can only be expressed by someone whose transcended their egoic character to provide experiential transmissions, or the teachings become logical for the mind to grasp, explore, and thereafter socially brag to rather inflate the egoic character rather than transcend. Such is fine for a stepping stone and spreading the word, and though there are many paths leading to "Oneness", Advaita Vedanta has continuously proven to be the direct route, as the adept is assisted in piercing through thoughts/emotions that keep consciousness limited to the confines of the character and the character's story. In practicing Advaita meaning "Oneness", "emptying-out" the distortions of thoughts-emotions for the "clarity" of "awareness", particularly emotional-thoughts that are personalized keeping the adept in the limited feels of being a character, places the adept closer to the naturally aligned state expressed in Eastern scriptures as "Samadhi". In other words, as stated by Shunryu Suzuki, "Leave your front door and back door open. Allow your thoughts to come and go. Just don't serve them tea". This "Samadhi" or ultimate ego-death can be likened to lingering with conviction in "being" the "space" between the atoms and phenomenal existences as opposed to identification with the human vessel and thoughts/emotions, where the atoms that compose the ego-character simply move in the flow of consciousness, or with intuitive spontaneity under direction of what is known as "Divine Will". As an example, have you ever worked on a project, most likely artwork, where lost in the moment, time seems to effortlessly fly as creation seems to effortlessly unfold? Well, the practice of Self Realization is to bring the adept back to the original blueprint, which is illusory-disguised underneath belief-system conditionings that distort the flow of consciousness from the field of inspiration, the unified field of consciousness, or "Oneness". In correlation to philosophical free will, it is as if the adept moves intuitively with the field of consciousness spontaneously-intuitively, where the external environment adjusts to the adept's vibration as expressed in the axiom "As Within, So Without" and detailed through law of attraction teachings.
Self Realization is exiting the matrix, the anti soul-evolution of returning to zero point consciousness, realizing the "Kether" of heaven is within you beneath the egoic shell that is the individuated character. Such is realized by simply disengaging the matrix. Take the visual of watching an engaging film, particularly at the moment of an edge-of-the-seat type suspense scenario increasingly building, where the viewer is completely visually-emotionally glued to the screen waiting for the next scene reveal. As the climactic moment arrives, the film's ability to take on a "virtual reality" is heightened as the viewer is completely engrossed, depicted by the viewer's own emotional state being completely controlled by witnessing the scene upon the screen. Suddenly, immediately prior to the climactic reveal, the screen goes blank as the power is removed, leaving the viewer first with shock as a pivotal moment was not properly revealed, which then only moves the viewer's emotional body to reset back to the surrounding environment as the viewer engages what happened and what conduct is required to return to the film. Nonetheless, there are two aspects of the adept's consciousness revealed in this event, one of which is to be consciously attached to the film and its emotional roller-coasters (both high/low vibrations), or to unplug from the film where the adept may go through a process of emotionally-vibrationally un-gluing himself from being engrossed in the film back into the adept's normal sensory states based on the adept's environment and conditionings.
Another example is the use of controlled breath to navigate a panic attack. The moving away of awareness from the reasons for panic and using the breath to move the adept to calmer brainwave patterns, centers and align the individual with a naturally harmonious state for the human animal vessel. In addition, thoughts and emotions are tied, as evidenced where individuals are often told not to make decisions when under certain emotional states. Such practices also bring sensory clarity, as emotions-thoughts are removed from awareness, the adept may find themselves with heightened senses being able to witness the adept's surroundings without analytical engagement, a truly nonjudgmental "as is" perception such as a viewing through a camera lens without a record button to personalize and analyze a memory data bank. For example, in viewing a small item, an adept may find that they will be able to discern excruciating details should they view the item from a state of calm created by controlled breath in addition to simply removing all thoughts for the moment for heightened clarity of the item. When the adept has cleared the emotional-thoughts and can simply observe the item, the adept here, should then simply linger in the ability to observe, or basically, hold the conviction to get to know the "observer Self". In other words, as opposed to focusing on the item, get to know the one who is doing the observing, the adept's "awareness".
In lingering within the "observer Self", the adept may face a backlash of psychological eruptions, as the adept's mind attempts to engage "doership" energy, keeping the adept out of the spaciousness of the moment and thinking (engaging) what to do in the next. In addition, as the adept psychologically adjusts, belief systems are dissolved and flushed from what feels like the central nervous system, where proper teachers who have accomplished such tasks are capable of further assisting in helping adepts move beyond traumas and other emotional baggage, belief-systems, thought-patterns and habits, and need for religious/spiritual "permission slips", the adept moves into simply the beingness of "I Am (Period)" as opposed to "I Am a Story". From what is known as a "Dark Night of the Soul", the adept may move the process of un-gluing from what Buddhists have called Samsara and what Hindus have called Maya, both meaning illusory-worldly-transient existences. To move beyond transient existences, ancient yogis have practiced "neti, neti", meaning "not this, not this", where through self-inquiry regarding held limiting belief systems, yogis would dissolve their conditioning by seeing the errors of their beliefs in light of simply being fully present with awareness, or simply "I Am".
Through continued dissolution of limiting beliefs that keep the adept personalizing the character consciousness is temporarily housing, and moving away from transiency towards something that remains eternally, the backdrop of the "observer Self" and observable phenomena, the adept moves to completely drop the character. Though indescribable, Hinduism has defined this realization as "Brahman" or the ultimate truth, where the adept is still "aware" (Sat) with expanded presence or "beingness" (Chit). The naturally aligned state, or having "emptied" the character personalization to linger in beingness, presents a naturally "blissful" (Ananda) experience that is not subject to the bodily hormonal cocktails. As Self-Realization removes the belief-system distortions around consciousness, the adept realigns and returns to the adept's blueprint, the essential Self. Provided that the "law of attraction" is a vibrational game of using ecstatic positive mind-states to produce an optimal lifestyle, the feeling state of Ananda is the law of attraction vibratory field for the adept to enter their Krysted timeline. In other words, Self Realization would be a significant step up and above "vision board" type practices, where such is simply an attempt to manifest one's egoic desires, irrespective of what the ancient masters have stated regarding the path of desire. Should an adept chase externally a desire, the adept may want to consider why such desire arises in the first place, the root of the desire, and if there are beliefs that need to be resolved that keep such desires intact keeping the adept attached to transient delusions. Should you manifest your desires, your heavens, how harmoniously would the adept remain, should transient attachments be thereafter removed? Such demands, needs, or wants from Samsara/Maya may simply be a reflection of something unresolved within, a lack of fulfillment, where fulfillment is truly found in expanded presence or "beingness" as nothing else is required. Hence, why Shakyamuni expressed desire as being one of the roots of suffering, and also probably why Osho Rajneesh did the "flashy" to show materialism isn't the issue but attachment thereof as he would buy unnecessary repetitive items in contrast to the loin-cloth Ramana Maharshi, where they all appear to be teaching adepts the same goal expressed differently. Nonetheless, can you imagine if Jesus utilized a vision board in the Judea Desert? Tantriks would understand this as the "Last Temptation", hence, the reason why Self Realization and Guru are required in proper lineages. The enjoyment (Bhoga) is to be tasted after Union with Self (Yoga), which would bring the element of Transcendence to the egoic path of "desire", placing the adept in the Garden of Eden, "eden" meaning "pleasure".
Just as an overheated piece of machinery will exhaust itself and require a cool down and possible readjustment, so may the human vessel in practicing Self Realization require plenty of self-care and environmental changes. The body and mind readjusts, where kundalini assists in clearing programming embedded in the psychological centers (energy vortices) known as chakras, as the "feminine receptive" energy purifies the adept and brings the "masculine will" back into alignment (vibration). When the adept is properly balanced internally with both masculine and feminine currents, the external expression of such will naturally be spontaneous in alignment with the adept. It should be understood that with proper alignment to the essential self, the need for movements such environmental, gender equality, etc., to balance harmony, will naturally enfold without the need to create an egoic-identity with personalized characteristics and further limiting beliefs for the character that immerse and delude the adept into transient existences. In other words, it is the choice between the natural "blissful Self" versus the ups and downs of the emotional "character self". Nonetheless, the oscillation process of the un-gluing of the "character self" from "awareness", in addition to self care requirements, may entail the adept having their "Last Temptation" ordeals as the adept seeks to let go of the films of Samsara/Maya. Such may be represented not just by desirable temptations, but through triggers that keep humanity engaging Samsara, as opposed to investigating delusions by and through self-inquiry bringing the adept back to the "observer Self" moving beyond the distortions of thoughts/emotions. These temptations and triggers arise to bring the light of awareness into aspects of ourselves, through the process of "know thyself", as the adept gains awareness of conditioning and moves towards transcendence.
Those tasting the nectar of "Ananda" in Self Realization communities are headed towards their Krysted timelines, where such practices is where Buddhas and Christs are realized, where what is known as the Krishna/Christ Consciousness is none other than Brahman/Kether. In dissolving the beliefs that hold the ego intact by and through self-inquiry type practices where the adept discerns/judges themselves, the adept then perceives "out of themselves" or "objectively" without any personal agendas creating a conflict of interest. It is a shift in identity headed away from identities, a funeral type energy of death, release, and liberation. Hence, the adept's perspective becomes "nondual" as the adept has transcended their own personal interest and is capable of being "fully present" to mirror back "higher consciousness". Such may bring deeper meaning to the Christian adage, "judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1) where being impartial would be required to grasp the wider perspective, in a world where many are simply playing out their mental conditionings and belief systems as expressed in "Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing" (Luke 23:34).
Self Realization has been taught all throughout the world as evidenced by global literature, but it seems only a few have succeeded as either such individuals gain notoriety or have stayed hidden. Such may be due to the lack of logical understanding of Self Realization, where most would rather engage and repetitively fulfill their desires as opposed to transcendence. The problem may be due to the adept simply not wanting Self realization in contrast to fulfillment of egoic desires. As warned in both traditional texts and esoterica, desire can become a distraction, a "last temptation" that pulls the adept down the Qabalist Tree of Life, but can also create an egoic bark on the Tree (Qliphoth), where the path of desire can be wrought with evolutionary issues creating suffering, leading the adept to finally desire liberation for Self. Even on a subtler level, the desirous pull to be in "doership" while lingering in "awareness" creates a distraction, where the adept may desire "doing" something, as opposed to basking in the limitless "nothingness", the potential from which all things are manifested. Hence, subtle conditionings often remain hidden, where a Self-Realized master is often sought to help assist move beyond certain conditionings not readily apparent to the adept's own consciousness, and overall act as a guidepost for Parabrahman, the Absolute, where the "observer Self" asks to intuitively grasp that which was prior to the One Infinite Consciousness.
In essence, Self Realization is to return the adept back to the adept's original state, or humanity's state before the fall of man, which is represented by the seven (7) Sephirot below the supernal triad on the Qabalist Tree of Life. It is a return to the Purusha or Adam-Lilith Kadmon defined as the "Cosmic Man" or better expressed as Unity Consciousness or Oneness. It is the realization of Shivoham.
The Gurus of India presented many paths to Ascension, as defined as "divine presence-spaciousness" (Kether/Brahman), which is essentially the flow of consciousness through the human vessel in a clear fashion sans the oscillation of the monkey-mind. Though the monkey-mind may be present, the adept's consciousness is like the sky which does not cling to the clouds that pass through, or the adept at least knows how to let such clouds dissolve once the adept has engaged a little "know thyself". Such entails not just thoughts, but the correlating emotions, much of which is embedded in the subconscious unknown to the conscious aspects of the adept, which may plunge the adept through a "dark-night" processes when walking such paths. Swami Vivekananda was an adept who attained a significant degree of "spaciousness", and hence, articulated the numerous structures of Hinduism to assist adepts. A text on point would be his Raja Yoga, which essentially entails having a calm lifestyle that does not overly engage the mind, to settle the mind, to move beyond the mind during meditation for the no-mind states of Samadhi (Sat-Awareness, Chit-Existence, Ananda-Bliss). Such yogic states was provided to Vivekananda via transmissions through his Guru, Sri Ramakrishna. (Streams of Yogic and Mystic Experiences, History of Science, Philosophy, and Culture in Indian Civilization).
India has kept numerous traditions and practices alive, despite the numerous conquests and continuing consistent attempts to negate Gurus and Hinduism in general. Especially in India which still faces massive issues of conversionists, it really has been Indian Gurus which kept the tradition of moving from animistic-shamanic practices of the lower sephriot of the Qabalah, into the supernal triad of "divine-presence" as taught as Self-Realization. As an example, such is continually presented by Nithyananda's ashram, where the author has been more than privy to his ashrams prior legal issues, including extensive lack of evidence based complaints ensuing from hearsay witch-hunts, all from individuals (highly financed) who want to see the organization, and Hinduism in general, falter. As I have found in observing his ashram on and off for the past decade, Nithyananda is simply a channeler for higher aspects of SadaShiva, which matches the Draconian gnosis provided by Bill Duvendack's invocation to Shiva. (Duvendack, Bill, etc., Awakening Lucifer). The Gnosis of Shiva simply being that of one's own Atma-Consciousness stretching the inner boundaries within the vessel. Such can be intense, where Shiva is known as the Lord of the Mad Saints. Moreover, like most that have connected with the "I Am" aspect and conduct transmissions, healings, activations, etc., Nithyananda provides the same to his ashram via having his devotees connect with him as Guru and receive downloads where the adept must also similarly channel SadaShiva. In other words, as proper under tantra in doing puja, the adept must state the invocations from the perspective of Shiva, as shown as Stillness with Multi-Dimensional Unity-Oneness-Consciousness, to properly empower the adept by means of "divine will" (masculine logos) such vibrational prayers or "divine energy" (feminine sophia). Nithyananda's ashram is simply Advaita meets right hand path (agamas) tantra.
However, unlike the dualist programming feels of New Age "Light Language" presented by teachers afraid of the dark and harsher emotions such as anger (tamas-aghora), Nithyananda's ashrams sits for hours with their kundalini turned-on invoking Vedic deities to the inner Havan-Kund-alini. Most in the new age are using "law of attraction" by means of "vision board" manifestation, where they are simply just using the interpretation and motives of the monkey-mind (and it's numerous dualist identity bubbles, including the purity-angelic nonsense) to draft the emotive lifestyle they wish to manifest. In comparison, we have the Vedic Goddess' (Goddess Vak) ability to manifest galaxies via vibrational sound establishing the tradition of mantriks, utilizing both yin/yang aspects as the world of matter is of an oscillating dualist nature. Hence, to allow the human vessel, particularly if clairsentient-sensitivities are developed, to be enveloped in "twilight language", or tantrik mantras holding bija-seeds to sprout in the adepts vibrational field, creates a vibrational powerhouse beyond the monkey-minds interpretive analytical skills. Surrender to the vibrations of the bija to allow the vibrations to move the adept to another higher-wider perspective, and hence, another manifest timeline.
Moreover, as Nithyananda's ashram utilizes ancient practices, and seeks to return to and practice proper techniques from the Saiva Agamas (Right Hand Path; Nigama-Left Hand Path), Nithyananda also reads the Akashic records to his audience to return teachings from ancient scriptures to his ashram. From what I've seen, Nithyananda's camp may be the closest to a Harry Potter type magickal revival, moving beyond Advaita as per the tantras. Reading from the Akashic records is a Saiva practice, which most likely may have stemmed from Ancient Lemuria. (Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, Lemurian Scrolls). The Akashic records, is creation by and through the Sanskrit alphabet (from Ak to Ksa), or "pure sound vibrations" as described by the channeled material of Ra in the Law of One. To read such records is a wonderful source for "know thyself", where through the use of Archangel Michael (or other record keeper), the adept may work on core issues at the root which will assist the adept in quickly moving through attached-habits and lessen the burden of the emotional backlash of the dark nights. (Recommend: All listed under "My Sadhana" column).
It is important to understand that in Advaita, Guru worship is typically found, as is usually supported by the fact that adepts tend to project significant gratitude to a teacher who has helped them pass a significant threshold in the way they perceive their lives. Moreover, as found through the works of Dr. Lauren Cielo in healing clients, the clients' ensuing bodily euphoria post-healing may be taken as intense loving feelings, which then the Guru-Healer-Teacher must attempt to dissuade any projections thereof. Advaita Gurus know, that attachment to Guru can be a major issue, nonetheless, trust would be required for the adept to psychologically drop (surrender) to the Guru's transmission (gnosis) and ability to handle psychological triggers during the ego-death process. As such, Guru Ramana Maharshi utterly despised organizations, and Nithyananda told his ashram back in 2011 that organization would be his "sin", but necessary to spread the work-product. It is also important to note that most organizations, and the devotees, are typically not governed by the Guru. Some of us would rather meditate than deal with procedural process, as no gold or other externalities can compare to the PhiloSophia Stone of the "I Am". For many ancients, such as the Aztecs, gold is basically decoration and clothing, and maybe an energetic conduit for those alchemists working with metals. Some may know of the inner vibrations of the color of gold, bringing us to "as within, so without", or such could be a programming to collect a resource needed by bloodline-elites tracing back to Mesopotamia. Nonetheless, Nithyananda has attempted to provide "ascension" teachings and transmissions to a "traditional" audience, who are mostly unaware of Saivism as such are typically the practices of those who do not fit the Brahmanic caste system. Hence, your typical Hindu pundit stuck in the folklore of the puranas, fails to comprehend the caliber of Saivism, particularly when the Guru has attained a significant level of Advaita. Most Hindus practice dualist Vaishnava, never realizing that the ten (10) avatars of Vishnu are "ascension" stepping stones to flower as your own "Sri". As stated frequently, Nithyananda's intent has been to show that each adept is Shiva him/herself with multidimensional-unity consciousness, or the "kingdom of heaven is within you" and there are "many mansions".
The current Western World continues capitalizing on Yogic tradition, all the while degrading it to further market radish spirituality ripened with egoic-identity attachments to Samsara, drastically fails in comparison to the caliber of Indian Gurus. Not to degrade any shamanic traditions, as I have noted the blessings (non-intoxicant setting; transmissions and messages) of incredible Huichol shamans who are not conditioned into Western duality, but frightening dualist religious belief-systems have created teachers who will use religious figures to push egoic-agendas under a divine messianic complexity, such as a push for an economic system. I will always be wary of anyone who uses a religious figure, especially Jesus whose entire life was hidden (Essene), where examples, teachings, transmissions, may be easily taken out of context as we've seen with Pauline Christianity. Nonetheless, when teachers express as such, simply understand the intent behind their statements, or motives in terms of bettering humanity, as we are all just adepts walking each other home. The pain of duality had been too hard for many of us, to truly let go for the harmony of duality (yin/yang), as ego-death and shadow-work can be terrifically terrifying. The Essenes were a hidden organization with different practices (baptism), scholars holdings texts predating Jesus by 1000 years and anything older than what the Romans used to craft their agenda via Creed of Nicea, which then pushed the eradication of the "heretics", today known as Gnostics (including Luciferian; Duvendack mentioned above is an Ex-Mystical Christian). The Essenes quietly and humbly paid their taxes-tithing, so they were not bothered by the Pharisees and Sadducees, up until Jesus opened his mouth and debated with them. Some say he was not Essene because Jesus was outspoken, but let's just say we probably know how much it sucks to bite our tongue when we see bullshit, especially wider perspectives. The Roman empire needed to destroy two particular traditions to keep power, which merged with the Cult of Mithra. Does the reader need a hint on which two traditions, wildly taken out of context?
Back to the East, when Alexander the Great (Student of Aristotle) reached India, he took note of the individuals the Greeks labelled as "GymnoSophists", and sent some of his team members home to tell the Greeks that the Greeks were living incorrectly. He had noted the abundance and luxuriousness of India including her palaces, but had stated that the Indian People would rather walk around naked philosophizing. Alexander kept an Indian Guru with him, Kalanos, who Yogiraj Siddhanath has addressed as Babaji under the name as correctly pronounced Kala-Agni (Time-Fire). (Yogiraj Siddhanath, Babaji). Under Kalanos guidance, Alexander continued his sadhana until his death, leaving the world his last spiritual message, by leaving his hand dangling out of his coffin. Such expresses, though one can conquer matter, what is the purpose if the adept leaves with nothing. Be in this world, but not of it.
When it comes to the Ascetics for modern times, I have not heard of anyone outdoing The Walking Shiva of Varanasi, Trailanga Swami. The reader can further research this Siddha, and connect with His ascetic spiritual Daughter Shankari Mataji through the mantra found in Paramanad Saraswati's Trailanga Swami and Shankari Mataji. Nonetheless, he was known to be a well-accomplished Siddha, who also confirmed the siddha-abilities of Sri Ramakrishna to an audience who simply thought Ramakrishna was nuts. One of Trailanga Swami's devotees, was also the Tantrik Aghori-Bhairavi (Witch) who provided Smashan (cemetery) Kali Diksa for Ramakrishna to practice Left Hand Path Sadhana (cleanse, harness, and utilize the central nervous system to properly handle Tamas vibrations). Nonetheless, as has been shown by Trailanga Swami, the ascetic path holds significant validity, where such was also shown by Jesus, Siddharta, and Mohammed.
Traditionally, the Hindu adept was to take on asceticism during the fourth and last stage of one's life, where one is ready to retire from society. Such seems appropriate, where the adept is of the age of having lived out certain desires and can then retire to practice techniques to help the adept let go of samsara, or a deconditioning. As stated above, Vivekananda discusses a particular lifestyle in his Raja Yoga, to mainly subdue the monkey-mind's activity, to have the body reach a sleep-like state resting perfectly in a properly positioned asana, to make sure the state of "no-mind" or samadhi is undisturbed. Such results in an ego-death process, where the adept may face a "dark night of the soul" while doing "shadow-work" of clearing the subconscious. Thereafter, the adept would need to transcend "heavenly" or "highly desired" attachments to samsara, or egoic-identity bubbles such as culture, creed, caste, gender, etc., all of which are simply clouds in the sky of the adepts consciousness which the adept clings onto in their dance with the delusion-maya. The quickest route for those who would want the blessings of such asceticism, will simply just need to be around an Advaita Guru who has accomplished "divine-presence spaciousness" to a significant degree. In Saivism, Guru must be Shiva himself, or the adept must seek Kali Ma's assistance (Kundalini). Advaita Gurus all teach the same thing, which are not teachings at all, but pointers to direct the monkey-brain to drop for the moment where the adept can linger in the spaciousness of the background to the thoughts and emotions. Such is quite similar to the mind-gap thoughtless feeling, when asked with a Zen adage, such as "if a tree falls in the forest, but no one is near to hear it, does it still make a noise" or the sound of "one hand clapping". To sit with an Advaita Guru, is the crack-cocaine form of practicing Zen-Buddhism. Though, many Advaita Gurus may still need a Guru to move beyond certain identified conditioning's, where the adept must use discernment where the Guru should hold significant clarity in presenting the "Primal" True Self. Really, these Advaita camps and Gurus should just unify and have the same damn conversation, over and over, until more and more spaciousness is opened up within everyone (competition is over when soul signature is uniquely expressed). Nonetheless, any Advaita Guru who can provide what I call the "Samadhi Blanket" has attained a significant level to assist other adepts, where the rest is simply pointing out and talking each other out of subtle conditioning to be absolved by "divine presence".
To move beyond Advaita, as Guru Adi Shankara had found after transcending Deities for Self Realization, the blessing of the Goddess Sri Sodashi arose, providing the mantrik with an arsenal of vibrations to anchor in the energies of "celestial heaven" or Mt. Meru via the Sri Chakra. Moreover, Tantriks-Luciferians have established that the Goddess' blessings are required to move back down the Qabalist Tree of Life/Death, where moving downwards from Binah/Satariel, the Goddess is sought quite possibly to clear the occult chakras located at the back of the skull. (See the Grimoire Tree of Qliphoth, Temple of Ascending Flame regarding Kali Ma). Hence, traditionally and continuing esoterically, Advaita Gurus under the tantrik traditions took Gnosis significantly deeper as Shiva has described in numerous tantrik texts. Moreover, for the Western New Age teachers competing with Gurus, so far, it has only been Nithyananda's camp that has provided Sri Yantra/Chakra activation, and powerful mantra dikshas to the masses more powerful than your gemstones (at least synergy 12), while the the New Age camps are merely "talking" with slight energetic transmission/variations from entities/egregores/thought-forms. For Nithyananda to call himself "Shiva", would be a lot like this adept, who since 2014 has used mantra to move into and match Kali Ma's vibration, which includes her constantly guiding me, cleaning me, and shockingly protecting me by teaching me malediction practices. It's one thing to go back to typical samsaric life with slightly wider creative abilities, it's another thing to go back to samsaric life where the deceased of your professional clients look over your shoulders when doing work. I'm not bragging about being Kali Ma, as it sucks walking around being ego-death to people. Nonetheless, the temple ashram life is excruciatingly intimidating to me, where I find much of it may be drastically unnecessary. However, during the Sri Yantra activation webinar, Nithyananda asked that his ashram become "progressive". I feel Nithyananda may be the last of the traditional Gurus as humanity steps into its shoes. From my seeking, the purports of Gurus should be Ego-Death, to assist adepts get-over themselves, to see/feel/be wider perspectives, where all else seems to be "permission slips" as such. Nonetheless, like other Indian Gurus, Nithyananda has actually made his presence known within my bedroom, and has actually provided me with special mantrik dikshas outside of the typical webinar activation. Hence, he is the real thing, but adepts should be warned and protected from Vashikaran.
(However, thank you for the Gurus-Teachers who keep it "real" and disclose where they are at in their process, as we are all each others stepping stones, mirrors. I have had difficulty in understanding what's happening inside of me, mostly because I am not to understand "logically". But I've pushed it with LHP practices in terms of Mantra, where I'm attempting to "scientifically" understand "visions" and "energy manipulation" in contrast to the simplicity of just being spacious with "Self" and what is to become of this adept's human vessel via means of Yoga thereof, where I'm coming to believe that anything is possible once I am able to sort through numerous delusional trappings that block inspiration. For those who have a preference for Higher Self in contrast to the Lower Self, well, if you still eat tangible-food, you also have within you the ability to upgrade the meal, if you understand that "it is not the spoon that bends". In addition, megalomania is something adepts of the LHP have to consistently "check-themselves" regarding as the adept begins to feel vibrationally "empowered" particularly as the inner beast holds a bit of a predatory nature. Once the "fight or flight" response has released much of the psychological baggage, we'll just say, beasts don't have heavy psychological conditioning known as karma when they are unleashed. Hence, the reason why Thuggees worshiped Kali Ma, and followed a different moralðical standard befitting their Tamas nature. However, I see megalomania as an issue that can arise well beyond LHP practices. These adepts must embrace the wisdom of power as a high-vibrational field can create quite a glamour).
Nonetheless, many are extremely glued to samsara and the oscillation of the monkey-minds thoughts-emotions roller-coaster, where such adepts will have extreme difficulties in hearing the pointings of Advaita Gurus. The monkey-mind will fight back, as triggers abound, and humans are typically "full-of-themselves" where many are simply not ready for ego-death beyond shadow-work. Such gurus, or rather Western anti-Gurus, are typically opposed to Lunar practices as they have built a career on shadow work and an "angelic egoic-identity bubble" keeping such adepts perpetually running from what their monkey-mind interprets as dark. Such adepts have merely combined ancient practices with limited understanding, and convoluted such with dualist egoic personal agendas, all the while not realizing they are flocking sheep to their new ignorant religion. Wheel them in with healing abilities, and a new "religion" with "reverends" to tithe before is born. Despite numerous Western teachers stating not to go to India, or sit in a cave, etc., such teachers have yet to drop the monkey-mind, distorting the integrity of actual spirituality in separation of spiritual materialism. Nonetheless, such is not exactly inaccurate as the context of the teachers comments needs to be assessed, where through Guru Lahiri Mahasaya who channeled Babaji, we are provided the householder practices of Kriya Yoga where the adept can "be in this world" with enjoyment, and also "be not of it" in terms of transcendence.
As taught by the ethereal Babaji who is equated with Lord Shiva, Guru Lahiri Mahasaya began the Self Realization lineage that includes Sri Yuketswar (A Siddha who kept his passion of Astrology), Paramahansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi), and Sat-Guru Yogiraj Siddhanath. Such entails Kriya Yoga practices, that are essentially designed to assist the adept clear the mind, proper breathing techniques to return to the natural ways of breathing, and running inner "channels" to move the flow of energy which often has an internal cleansing process. (See JC Stevens, Kriya Secrets Revealed). Hence, such practices are akin to traditional Saiva practices (See Vijnanabhairava) as well as Taoist Alchemical practices (See Yang Jwing-Ming, Embryonic Breathing; or anything Mantak Chia). Such techniques not only help direct the mind, lead chi-shakti through awareness around within the human vessel, charge the bodies battery at the sacral-lower dantien, but release numerous psychological blockages increasing the adepts sensitives and subtle psychic senses, as the adept begins the process of becoming a Siddha. The Indian Cult of Kubjika further provides the chakra system, where today, most follow a seven (7) chakra system, which are essentially ways to engage seven (7) different aspects of the psyche, which is tied both to the bodies nervous system/organs/ganglia as well as the more ethereal bodies as in such practices will have a transmutation effect thereof. Further, the practice of Kriya Yoga and other forms of yoga, assist in preparing the body and the spine by releasing "knots", which adjusts the spine for prana (upwards) kundalini flow.
Hence, depending on the culture and the arising practices and belief systems, the householder practice was a method of allowing the adept to engage societal day-to-day realities and agendas, all the while consistently running channels throughout the body that tackle numerous areas, from psychology, bodily health and mental stillness, and an overall better energetic flow. It was a way to become a Siddha, without having to disengage from samsara through ascetic practices. Here, the author would recommend Dr. Lauren Cielo's work product, where through the use of spirit guides, the adept can consistently ground (release into grounding cord), and run both Cosmic and Earth energy, where such techniques are easily adaptable to combine with other models to craft the best personal techniques for the adept. Running such channels, proper breathing, etc., is a way of allowing the adept to "let go" and be more anchored within the spaciousness of oneself as opposed to being "present to the moment", which actually has the effect of being "present to the moment" as a heightened standard with a clear head and deep breath as the adept continues to "let go". In other words, as the adept continues to release into the inner spaciousness, an outward heightened clarity arises anchoring the adept more presently into the moment. Therefore, such techniques are quite useful in combination with Advaita, where the inner calm produced by such practices will assist adepts in sitting with Advaita Guru's to properly hear subtle pointings, as heightened concentration may be required. Nontheless, the Householder path is the path where adepts can engage samsara, and explore Siddhas on the path to ascension.
Upon meet, the Ascetic Trailanga Swami looked at the Householder Lahiri Mahasaya, and complained that he personally had to give everything up as an ascetic to receive Shiva's blessings, whereas Lahiri Mahasaya gave nothing up and Shiva gave him everything. Nonetheless, looking at the essence of the practices behind both arenas, both are quite manageable where Advaita will handle the ascetic aspects of Self-Realization and Kriya Yoga handling the householder transmutation techniques of Self-Actualization, where both practices can be easily sought and explored through numerous means found in the age of information.
Nonetheless, the adept must use discernment in assessing a Guru-Teacher ("Destroyer of Ignorance"), particularly those who hold "healing" or other forms of "energetic" adjustments, where such abilities can be used to "flock a herd" for a new pyramid scheme "re-legion". There is only the adepts consciousness (Shivoham) and ensuing vibration (Shakti), all else should simply be tools and guidance in helping the adept pull back the layers of not only moving beyond the mind, but placing the mind in harmony (Tao). The whole purpose of Mantra is to harness the numerous potentials of the Mind, as the mind is placed in a vibration well-beyond what is felt in mundane humanity, and also becomes a push to further the states of Samadhi (at least with Tantrik Goddesses associated with the Kundalini-Shakti), allowing the adept to fall deeper within themselves, deeper into the rabbit hole. Such also has an external effect, with the adage "as within, so without", where external samsaric-reality becomes more malleable, based on one's vibration. a vibration which is the aftermath of the adepts thought-emotional processes (including unknown subconscious), after-all, "thoughts create reality".
First and foremost, the sanctum of the Goddess is always protected by Bhairava and his hell-hounds. You can either fearfully turn away, rack up the courage to face your demons, or be devoted to the Goddess where she just hands Hari-Kaula the leash holding Cerberus. Such is the borders of all Goddess Yantras, protecting the Goddess' play within her inner sanctum, where her inner mysteries are unveiled to those willing. The mysteries of creation, of samsara, of why consciousness (light) chooses to manifest in the material (matter) realms are unveiled as the energy of Binah (Babalon; Love-Sick) entices Chokmah (Beast; Intuitive Impulse) to play the game. A missing link within the psychological equation of E=mc^2, or the patriarchally inclined religious trinity.
The origins of the Ten (10) Wisdom Goddesses, known as MahaVidyas based on culture, are syncronized in Goddess Sati-Parvati, the Mother of All That Is, and consort of the Lord of the Lords/Beasts/Poison. Nonetheless, the names in themselves hint towards different roots, where Goddess Chinnamasta simply means "from China", and is the inner Goddess of Lord Padmasambhava of Tibetan Buddhism. Nonetheless, these Goddesses in sync with Parvati are showing that they are of a specific current articulated separately based on the archetype. In other words, the collaboration thereof is ripe, where the original cult most likely attempted to collect the ten most powerful Tantrik Goddesses they could find from all traditions to create one powerful magickal system. In original roles, such Goddesses were kept secret, as villages did not want "competitors" obtaining the ability to harness such energy, as still found today through secretive shrines.
Nonetheless, the system of the Mahavidyas is an incredible system where ancient yogis looked for, not just the most powerful aspects of Shakti, but the most diversified. In the West, we may have the Enochian Magickal system (Angel Magick), but such is still an attempt to synchronize the split-dual harmony of Angel/Demon into Daemon within the human vessel, and has thereafter brought adepts to the Goddess. The West is overtly convoluted with Angel versus Demon, God versus Devil, Dark versus Light, where Angel "channeled" readings often look quite Santa Clause with adepts stating "I only work with the highest beings of the light". Such readers often use tarot cards or other occult systems, and then forget who provided such to humanity. With the Goddess, there is no more hiding, particularly since the adept needs to be initiated (diksha-darsan) and thereafter guided by the inner Goddess through the depths (subconscious) and heights (conscious) of all (turiya) of her Glory. Hence, through all of my spiritual practices, I do not state "love and light", as such are meditative states found when ego-identity is dropped, not a logical statement to express a human monkey-mind sentiment to interpret the context of one's position. (For actual experience, see Bentinho). In my rituals, I ask for my "highest and best guides", in other words, whoever is at the "top of the food chain" in getting the job done for my own Self-Realization as best and quickly as possible, regardless of the vibrational aspects (gunas) where adepts need to remember that Ram had Laksman study Ravana before his passing in the Ramayan. (See Ravan, Kala Maha Indrajaal). Hence, Solomon's Ring given to him by Archangel Michael to harness the usage of Demons. Further, Siddharta meeting Maya or Jesus meeting temptations of worldy Samsara distracting him from the Kether within. In terms of tantra (Saiva), these masters taught that it is after the yoking with the divine within (yoga), that we have enjoyment (bhoga). Enjoyment being Siva (consciousness) enjoying Shakti (energy) to the fullest (matter; yin/yang).
However, external coupling is not required for divine union and can be a samsaric distraction, as "relationships" are simply limited mental contractual-agreements based on past-memory used to assess and dictate momentary conduct and relation, also based on cultural-biological agreements, as opposed to being fully anchored in what the present moment is offering and the unpredictability of the human potential. As an example, do you perceive others by and through an interpretive monkey-mind, with filters of gender, politics, past-conduct, etc., blocking your ability to heighten your senses and perceive from a wider playing field? Or, is the adept fully anchored in the inner Self, allowing samsara to ebb-and-flow, and adjusting one's samsaric self in harmony thereafter aware to a wider array of expressions. It could be gently calming an aggressive behavior, or, it could be flaring the worst of all rudra-tantrums such as in throwing the charlatan tax-collectors out of the House of the Lord, fully expressing the plethora that is human vibrations irrespective of memory-based plot-line "characters". Internally, the adept is karma free as the ebb-and-flow remains oscillating in front of consciousness, as higher consciousness takes the wheel and drives, without a monkey-brained analytical thought directing the vessel. To let go, be, and ride the energy, is to tame the beast, a Goddess riding on a Lion. For those looking for divine coupling, Jesus, Siddhartha, Mohammed, etc., typically didn't take their girlfriends out to the fringes of society to practice sadhana. Like being in a "sensory deprivation tank", the mind itself will unfold as it looks for concepts and transient existences to grasp onto, as opposed to anchoring in the depths of the spaciousness within oneself. (See Also, History Channel's Alone). Such needs to be articulated, as tantra has been significantly egoic-ally misinterpreted, where according to such texts, to approach Kali without Self-Realization as goal is to use her energy for sinful purposes, or further delusions in samsara.
As such, while others choose dualist representations and philosophical systems providing a heaven and hell oscillating agenda disguised as "oneness" or a one-deity monarch, the Mahavidya's provide a Universal schematic showing the universal expressions of energy. Such includes unconditional love of Goddess Tara, found through egoic letting go and letting God, as well as the love-sick Babalonian Helen-of-Troy type love of Binah as Goddess Bhuvaneshwari (Semitic Ashera), which excites consciousness of Chokmah to play the game in the first place. The height of heaven is not just the material domains of the Yasksini Lakshmi, but it is the ability to be the most beautiful in all three (3) worlds as Goddess Sodashi, or the pinnacle of Mt. Meru. In synchronization with Lakshmi, the Goddess Kamala is present to assist in the material realms, by having an additional cleansing "wrathful" aspect to prune the adept as "wrath" is the best vibration to flush lower denser energies. The depth of hells would not be some punitive damage arena as consistently fantasied within the West, but would be the misery of Shakti (energy) without her Shiva (consciousness) falling further into the density of the material realms (matter). Such is expressed by the smoky remnants of the great apocalypse ("MahaPralaya"), found fuming from the ashes of the universe (Sati) as Goddess Dhumavati, the Lilith Old Hag archetype cast-away from A(B)rahma. Like Rama's consort Sita, Sati provides an evolutionary obstacle for consciousness not just for (A)Brahma, but his adversary as well, Shiva. As Goddess Dhumavati would teach, true hell is not punitive damages, but the misery experienced from a loss of love, and the societal degradation of such females in patriarchal lineages as they appear to be cursed. She becomes an energy to assist adepts walking through their abyss, a companion whose not going to preach to you, "love and light", but is willing to walk with you in your own psychotic mess in understanding "know thyself", not run from it, but raise it to the awareness of "divine presence" to discern the Truth thereof and henceforth actually experience the Taoist alchemy of "love and all shades of light".
Therefore, the Mahavidya system is quite impressive in its stretch to assist adepts in harnessing many different aspects of Universal energy. The most powerful weapon in Vedic scriptures, the Brahmastra, is secretly none other than the energy of Goddess Bagalamukhi who stills the moment by grabbing the face realigning the adept. Through Goddess Matangi, you have a non-judgmental Goddess Saraswati, where cultural pioneers are typically found on the streets, not in the systems. Lastly, you have Goddess Bhairavi, who is none other than the tantrik adept who has reached that Inner Black Flame via the Serpent (Draconian), and has purged until she can handle sitting on the Black/Golden Lion (Lyra). Such Black Flame is represented by the Yoni-Temple of the Shakti-Pitha of Goddess Kamakhya, whose location is named after Goddess Kubjika, the tradition which provided us with a system of cleansing the chakras, and is the only temple particularly for the Mahavidyas. The location of which, is further rooted in ancient practices of the Assam people, which may hold commonality with ancient Tibetan Bon practices, Spirits which became protectors of the Dharma under Lord Padmasambhava. Such further indicates towards a deeper goal in working with the Goddess, to realize one's true nature, one's true essence outside of monkey-mind conditioning. In addition, the Yoni, as found through working with Goddess Guhya Kali, is a meditative gateway to return the adept before time-space and incarnation into samsara, consciousness before falling down the Qabalist tree of life post Binah. Hence, Goddess Kamakhya, the grounds for Indian Black Magick, is way to flush harsher energies from the human vessel through her "wrath", in addition to digging deeper within the subconscious for "know thyself", or what is more commonly seen, a way to find love.
Moreover, to truly ride the lion, the Mahavidyas would be further aspects as found through the larger group of Sixty-Four (64) Yogini. Quite possibly one of the most feared traditions as can be gathered from the visual depictions of such temples with Goddesses garnished with fierce animal faces, statues found within circular structures with open roofs to allow the Goddesses to fly into the temple, as opposed to the Brahmin designed human-vessel shaped temples. As a Bhairavi can properly mount the Lion, where the animal vessel is under harmonious-control, the powerful creative sexual component of the Sixty-Four (64) Yogini can be utilized within stillness, as the Yogini will assist the adept in allowing such sexual sensations to flow up the pranic tube and out of the crown chakra for a delicious and quite cleansing/healing experience, leaving the central nervous system at ease to accept gnosis thereof. The Sixty-Four (64) yogini experience is one of the calm and spaciousness of Self-Realization meeting the ecstatic heights of Self-Actualization, or bringing higher consciousness down into the nervous system.
The Goddess is path to understand and harness the human potential via the subconscious. Though it is the masculine will that governs, controls, dictates, it is the feminine that en-souls, manifests, and dances the play of samsara for consciousness' evolution (yoga; know thyself) and enjoyment (bhoga). The Wisdom Goddesses' assist the adept in walking through all aspects of their journey, and with Goddess Sodashi, a silver-lining is always found as shown through how Sri Krishna danced among what could be considered obstacles. "As within, so without", use your own consciousness (will) to master your own energy (vibration-energy) using nondual Universal Wisdom to manifest the adepts own divine play, where such Goddesses deserve the capital letter "G" for God, as they have a proven record of saving and returning adepts home to Truth.
The Mahavidyas are my main team of guides with Goddess Kali as my initiator, and my main intent is to share the blessings that they have brought me, for others. Moreover, I'm really pushed to assist others put power back into their own hands, particularly those who have been dis-empowered, where adepts can truly enjoy their expression outside of psychological conditioning and limitations in their strive to "know thyself". Moreover, I'm hoping that the time of the veiled feminine is done. Some of us prefer Her naked riding a Beast.
Understanding and Harnessing Ancient Global Black and White Magick Outside of Modern Religious Interpretations and Control Mechanisms
It's best to perceive wisdom from a higher plateau, particular one above dualist ramblings of good versus evil, white versus black, etc., which really has always been a way for humans to point the finger externally rather than unfold internally. Such dualist systems have created control systems, with doctrines meant to be blindly followed (if understood by the masses) through commandments or face the treacherous environments of a Church created ideology plaguing religion today known as "hell". Dualist traditions then arise to wide-spread flowering via corporate organizational structures utilizing a political-montheistic monarch-deity to collect sole tithing from all under such governance and further enact dictatorship-divine right rulership. Hence, historically, there was no separation from Church and State, until the New Atlantis attempt of the United States. Religion was a way for the elite to play the game, with a "my way or the highway" attitude controlling not only the physical vessel of the adepts, but the consciousness as well.
Before the days of a commanding demiurge placing adepts within the emotional vibrations of either psychological heaven or hell, which in effect vibrationally alter the adept's divine will shifting material manifestations thereof, spirituality based on natural phenomena presented harmony, as shown through the yin/yang, or the constant universal dance between the yoni/lingam, the masucline will-power and feminine energy-vibration. It is the Zen adage of being like water with the flow of consciousness as being "divinely-present" to "as is" within the moment as opposed to the stone using its own egoic-monkey-brain dualist-interpreting will-power to stand its ground against the slowly corroding feels of the water. Heaven or hell, right or left, which way should the stone move to better weather the climate based on casual-relationships (karma), or do you "let go" and let the waters bring you home, back to Truth.
The major religions appear to stem from Mesopotamia (Tower of Babalon), with the Abrahmic traditions merely stemming from the Semitic adoption of the Canaanite religion/culture/language, and Hinduism/Zoroastrianism (AVedic) further sharing significant commonalities with such heritages. In addition, Egyptian, then Greece, then Roman, all appear to be derivatives thereof furthermore. Esoterica in each lore hint to the astral projection practices of the shamanic priestly oriented along with energy manipulation where the adept brings forth energy-vibration through the subconscious through certain energetic channels of the body to be expelled for further manifestation as consciousness (light) interacting with vibration (energy) results in the hologram perceived by the typical human senses as physical reality (matter) (E=mc^2). Provided the subconscious is key to unity-consciousness as all is connected, information may be presentable to the shaman as well, such as the shamanic-hunter knowing the akashic-record death contracts of an animal, can place the animal's location.
Nonetheless, to properly understand the Mesopotamian religion, at least from a Sakta perspective, is to reach for the Mother Goddess of the tradition, the opponent of the patriarchal demiurge. The patriarchal demiurge demonized the Mother Goddess, whose protectors were considered the demonic lineage as she became the Mother of All, including "abominations". Understanding these beings under archetypal nature, the Mother Goddess as Umma Tiamat is of intensity and therefore described as "Dragon". Umma Tiamat and her murdered husband are the essence that was manipulated by the demiurge to be the soul of humanity, the earth, and the sky, with their blood flowing through humanity, hence, blood rituals as a way to charge the environment for energy manifestation due to its vital life essence charge. To reach for this original Mother Goddess, is actually the opposite of what one would typically expect as the patriarchal demiurge has presented as the feminine model the excruciatingly pacified and veiled "Eve". Eve biting the apple, was the serpent attempting to return her back before the fall of man, to Lilith, a handmaiden of Goddess Ishtar (Babalon-Mary Magdalene; Chalice-Holy Graal). Hence, the ancients knew, and adepts throughout time have kept the mysteries alive, that humans hold within themselves, god-like (demiurge) abilities.
To deny humanity its truth, its own origin, is to keep sheep flocking to herds to be further programmed under the guise of the psychological sedative faith-based hope, never realizing that each individual has within themselves their own wolf potential. It appears the demiurge was afraid of competitors in the Annunaki animal-livestock sanctuary that was the paradise of the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve, as expressed biblically, were not the only people on the globe as progeny required wives, in addition to people of darker color significantly predating the latest human genetic mutation that is white colored people. With the advent of the Abrahamic twist on the Canaanite religion, Mesopotamian deities were demonized due to political/cultural reasons, a trend that continued globally through the Abrahamic traditions under the strict governance of an old Canaanite deity rehashed as new after the Semitic conquest of Israel, creating a new one and only monarch-deity. Hence, religions that seek to control "All" through one demiurge, typically conflict with the oneness of unity consciousness as taught by Qabalists as Kether and Brahmins as Brahman. It is important to note that while many religions are to view God as "formless", where archetypes, angels, etc., are simply aspects or minions thereof, certain religions place a human vessel as the actual image of deity and not as a concentration item for the adepts own divine will. The Annunaki are allegedly master geneticists, and most likely had no need to keep "wild" livestock with a potentially evolving and demiurge like potential. Hence, created in "gods image" can be taken physically, or metaphorically in holding unity-consciousness (subconscious), or both as found through the universe unfolding itself.
Therefore, dualists contexts of good and evil, black and white, are left for the theologians, modern day Pharisees and Sadducees attempting to comprehend the ramblings of their ancient forefathers, who consistently judge with righteous indignation, all the while preaching "judge not lest ye be judged". Such is not the fault of the adepts, but the trappings of the interpretive monkey-mind oscillating between two conceptual ideas which has been most likely consistently ingrained within the adept since birth. Even adepts who gear towards positive affirmations will face the backlash of what is buried in the subconscious, should the affirmation vibrationally conflict with certain held beliefs as felt through "growth periods" or "dark nights of the soul". As opposed to the flow of consciousness, the adept is left in the monkey-mind, engaging the monkey-mind, but with now two (2) monkey-voices in the head going ape-shit bananas, where the silence of presence brings harmony and wisdom to the adept.
To best understand the energies on opposite polar ends, is to be removed from the extreme Abrahamic interpretive stance and perspective outlooks as they have become political means of control creating hierarchical social value systems and self-righteous condemnation towards adversarial positions (def. satan), as opposed to spiritual unification, or yoking with divinity. The pyramid can either have the eye of the demiurge at the top looking down on the numerous levels of minions which may or may not have a Capitalist-Slavery Darwinian-Complexity up-leveling system under the complete governance and legal-regulatory manipulation of those who crafted the socio-economic-spiritual playing field, or it is the eye of unity-consciousness where the adept climbs thirty-three (33) steps to inner completion reaching unity (the supernal triad) before the fall of man. The two are not exactly distinct, as the adage "as within, so without", as subconscious working can be a daunting and fearful task leading adepts to "fall" down the tree of life into their own delusions and create further egoic attachments enlarging lower based (chakra) emotions which can manifest as disharmony as the adept is forced to face their issues at a more rapid rate, or a shell over the flow of consciousness known as qliphoth.
As a derivative of ancient Mesopotamia, ancient Greece provides us with a clue on how to interpret the polar opposite energies, black/white dragons of the yin/yang, by and through understanding the nature of the time-space (kala-kali) continuum. As the way the typical human senses engages physical reality particularly, whatever is potentially created in order to be understood must be observed in a linear fashion to make sense, or rather, chronologically. Hence, holographic manifestation molds itself in a chronological fashion to provide the divine play (lila). Nonetheless, as an aspect of time, time corrodes and degrades as everything in the world of forms (samsara) is transiently fading away. This fading away, or letting go, or transmutation of substance, is achieved through the opponent of chronological order, chaos. Chaos typically causes a change of direction, an obstacle for evolution, which is an energy typically bringing the adept to sorrow particularly if the adept is unable to interpret their growth cycles. As time moves forward, one energetic aspect forges forward via chronology as the other energetic aspect degrades what should be left behind via chaos. Nonetheless, the oscillation between the two (2) leads adepts in confusing journey's as their egoic-monkey mind continues to interpret every stage, environmental circumstance, or whatever unresolved matters that have energetically bottled-up over consciousness plaguing the adept from perceiving the pristine moment without mental-interpretative filters. Nonetheless, as argued above and further evidenced by a simple face-value glance at most religions, most would seek the energy of Chronos of chronology due to the fear of Chaos, which is the description of the Mesopotamian Mother Goddess Umma Tiamat, as she is the Chaotic waters from which all is created and all will collapse into, the void. She is the apocalyptic serpent beast, or the Leviathans of the demiurges archonic-creator gods religions, as she "reveals" the Truth regarding samsara, or an adepts own apokalpsis. She is not only the one who bore all deities, such as the Vedic Goddess Vak (Sound/Vibration), but collapses everything back into pure infinite potential, as space-time and its manifestations are an illusion (Mahamaya), which for the fallen and samsaric-attached is a delusion (maya).
Therefore, the religious dance between good and evil, deity and adversary, black and white, hell and heaven, etc., is simply monkey-mind attempts to interpret the polar energies of Chronos and Chaos and how such moves about as consciousness manifests the holographic physical reality using such vibrational energies. Most religions thrive on the faults of the interpretive monkey-mind analysis and through its material desires, where such have formed heinous control institutions meant to gather flock to heavenly Chronos are forever be damned to hellish Chaos. Nonetheless, the shamans-mystics taught a different route, to be flowing like water as opposed to the degrading stone attempting to hold its egoic-will in the water. Such entails consciousness witnessing "divine time", or the "presence" of the divine-will of Kairos.
I do not prevent myself from experiencing anything. Let everything come. It is my dance, but nothing carries me away. For in the field of the phenomenal, "I" alone, prevails as the unchanging one. Find this truth in yourself.
From a transcendental perspective, in understanding our dance in the universe, there is Consciousness (Shiva) and Energy (Shakti), where the adepts own pristine Spirit (Psyche-Atma-Consciousness-Shiva) places its awareness on thought-forms with building intensity to arouse energy felt through the subtle emotional body, which then provides the adept with its very own holographic manifestation known as samsara, or what scientists have called, matter. (E=mc^2). Hence, we are each our own relative universe. The adepts constant ebb and flow through samsara, is found through three (3) psychological aspects, the (G)enerative, (O)perative, and (D)estructive cyclical nature to allow a play (lila) to be properly presented in a linear fashion within a time-space continuum (maya) playing field. To properly enjoy the play, Consciousness deludes itself, and hence, forgets its all-encompassing truth, to play the masked identity-roles as "egos". Such delusions within samsara allow the adept to forget Truth for the unfolding of itself. Nonetheless, instead of seeking pristine Consciousness, most individuals typically seek attachments within samsara, or create attachments to issues, patterns, habits, joys, pleasures, etc., of the material realms. Therefore, the adept is fallen, deluded, and attached into karmic loops, lost in one's own consistent generating, operating, and destroying timelines falling prey to the minds limited-perspectives, which hold the effect of keeping adepts trapped within "identity bubbles" as the adept continues the dance of samsara.
In viewing the vast range, but drastically similar, religious and spiritual practices of our globe, the vast majority on the planet seek samasra as evidenced by the continued intent placed behind most deities on the planet, which is to treat God as a sort of Santa Clause with Angelic elfin minions. Such is shown as many prefer to worship "creator", or the generative aspect of the psyche, as in truth, creation is a delusion as nothing is ever created or destroyed but is transmuted as interpreted by current laws of physics. There is also the heaven seekers who seek a samsara where either the concept of evolution through polarity is somehow removed, where all earthly fulfillment unresolved are moved towards completion, or harmony. Nonetheless, such heaven seekers only move to dissolve what is known as "shadows", or what the monkey-mind interprets as "bad" within samsara, where identification and desires still remain to be met not by a "creator", but by a "liberator", for those seeking Truth. Such adepts focusing on "creator" have shown to linger within the polarity of the monkey-mind, which is then often reflected by judgmental perspectives lacking in analytical-discernment projected into the surrounding environment, most often expressed as subtle validation attempts to those in similar limited belief-systems. Therefore, as opposed to seeking liberation (moksha), such adepts continue the samsaric adventures of right versus wrong, us versus them, patriarchy versus matriarchy, angel versus demon, creator versus destroyer, arcturian versus draconion, etc., as the wheel of samsara continues its cyclical motion despite preaching of non-judgment and unity-consciousness. Nonetheless, those seeking liberation, Spirit unblemished and unattached from matter, to "be in this world but not of it", is to be liberated not just from negative thought-forms, but all thought-forms as thoughts keep the adept within limited-experience within the adepts "present moments". The removal of thought-forms and images of holographic transient existences, is to bring the adept deep within the spaciousness of one's own Truth.
The spaciousness found within brings an extreme form of natural bliss, a graceful transmutative presence, a feeling felt as described as completely "letting go" bringing forth an inner harmony as the monkey-mind has trouble attaching itself to thoughts and interpretations. The adept is unfazed by the transience of the wheel of samsara, with both its ups and downs, highs and lows, heavens and hells, where the oscillation of polarity is replaced with the ability to perceive the moment "as is" like a piece of artwork with numerous brilliant emotions and flares engaging the emotional-body with proper fluidity (the ability to let go, instead of bottle-up) creating a psychedelic feel with the surrounding environment and connection therewith. Nonetheless, Spirit remains untainted by samsaric endeavors, as the adept regains the understanding that everything is sourced from within, as the truthful adage "as within, so without". As the adept, in knowing thyself, can use the imaginative will-power to conjure the plethora of human experiences where the biological animal-vessel will react to the delusions of the mind, the adept holds the full-palate of colors to which to place one's awareness with energetic-intensity to manifest samsara, or the adepts timelines. However, few are the adepts who seek one's own Truth beyond transient existences, thought-forms, also known as samsara. However, such is the adventure and the journey of the adept, in getting to "know thyself".
We don't become who we dream of
The numerous deities found south of the Himalayan Mountains are a result of an outgrowth of ancient animistic practices (as found throughout the planet), stemming from a time before the fall of man (nadi androgynous Adam-Lilith Kadmon) where humanity stood with it's original siddha abilities. Hence, original man was quite psychic with the ability to commune with different aspects of nature, such as freshwater sources that were a requirement for civilization (Ganges, Saraswati, Nile, etc.). Such abilities were continued and are still found through shamanic practices throughout the world.
The ability to commune with external environment in oneness is predicated on human consciousness' natural ability, which has been hindered by significant belief systems energetically lingering within the light-body chakra system, and further embellished by and through consistent distractions that keep adepts engaging samsara as opposed to bringing their awareness away from samsara, into the depths of one's own psyche. Oneness, is found through engaging one's own subconscious. Know thyself.
The Fall and Rise of Man (Enlightenment):
The fall of man is described in qabalistic terms as the seven (7) sephirot below the supernal triad within the qabalist tree of life. The adept attempting to return to conscious wholeness, or Adam-Eve before the fall, would be all adepts facing the delusions of their consciousness (subconsciousness/daath) at the seventh (7) sephirot of tiphareth/thagirion looking upwards on the tree of life/death. Such practice is to bring the adept into the crown of the supernal triad, Kether, which is defined by qabalists as "divine presence". Such matches the definition of Brahman, as described by Eastern yogis who blow-out (Nirvana) all world of forms (Samsara), where the only human description of this conscious space is typically described as Sat (you still feel like you exist), Chit (you're still aware), and Ananda-Grace (the bliss found in dropping the duality of the monkey-mind, and just breathing into the moment).
Through the yogas, puranas, and the feared and often prohibited tantras (same as western grimoires in diving deep into the primal aspects of the subconsious typically hidden through cognitive dissonance), we have teachings the were meant to provide a holistic approach for adepts to climb the tree of life/death (Brahma/Shiva) through traditions that are known as yoga. Yoga meaning to yoke, are teachings to harness the animal vessel-body with higher consciousness, or to make the vessel a clear vessel outside of limiting-belief systems for pure spirit. Hence, the inspired avatar. Such would entail humanities return to what the monkey-mind psychology (ego) would label as deification, the state of consciousness before the fall, reunification with the supernal triad, or enlightenment as described in the tantras (Saivism texts).
Enlightenment as defined in the tantras is a state of consciousness known as turiya, or to be awake within the three (3) states of consciousness: 1. awake; 2. sleep; and 3. deep sleep. This is achieved by and through clarity of pristine-awareness, clarity from the plague of thoughts and emotions that keep the adept glued to samsara. The byproduct of such practice is the unification of consciousness found through oneness in engaging the subconscious, or the old adage, "Know thyself, and thou shalt know the universe and the gods".
To define the fallen, well, such would be one's own consciousness/spirit littered with the pull of thought-forms (egregores), which also alters the emotional-body creating denser lower chakra emotions that can be bottled up within the fallen, should the fallen choose to place such thought-forms into the "back of the mind". The fallen further attaches to such thought-forms by crafting numerous belief systems around such concepts and ideologies, which places the fallen into the trap of "identities". Identities from a liberated perspective is lila or divine play as the adept is able to "let-go", where for the fallen, identities can become a heavy attachment (gender, race, nationality, politics, etc.) creating further attachment to samsara, creating more thought-forms (dualist positive/negative), creating an egoic-shell on the tree of life, qliphoth. Moreover, such thought-forms (egregores) are linked with astral-energies (star-beings) as the fallen adept in the first (1st) sephirot of Malkuth begins to glimpse the astral realms of the second (2nd) sephirot Yesod/Gamaliel, showing a link with thoughts and manifest objective five (5) sensory reality. Thoughts create reality, or "as within so without". Attachment to these egregores creates a reality akin to Determinist philosophy, where the animal-vessel is controlled by thought-forms and identifications with thought-forms creating habits that create filters on the way objective reality is perceived, handled, and determined, also known as Karma.
In other words, the enlightened have simply lightened-up their consciousness, or brought light to all aspects of one's own consciousness, which is the One consciousness.
Wheel of Samsara (Ego Controlling the Human Animal Vessel):
The masculine is defined as divine consciousness, or the occult Divine Will, where we consciously choose to shine our light (Shiva). It is Ganesha with his one-pointed tusk and the ability to remove all other obstacles in his way by his mere stature. The feminine is divine energy, or the occult Vital Life Force, where we are provided with infinity (thoughts-emotions) for us to consciously provide our energy (Shakti). It is Kartikeya with his third-eye peacock feather showing the ability to perceive all perspectives (light/dark) to display the beautiful dance of samsara.
The Wheel of Samsara is essentially the adept shifting between three (3) aspects of conscious, or Divine Will. The first (1st) aspect is the Creator God, known as Brahma the Generator who is the adept who must attempt to create using the wisdom found through the energy of Saraswati. The second (2nd) aspect is the Manager God, known as Vishnu the Operator who is the adept who must attempt to maintain harmony (yin/yang) found through the energy of Lakshmi ("Sri" Sodashi). The (3rd) third aspect is the Destroyer God, known as Shiva the corrosion of time who is the adept who destroys the current moment to return to Creator God found though the energy of the "all forms of love for all forms within creation" of Parvati (Babalon; Unlimited-Unconditional Whore for All That Is, All States of Consciousness). Such provides the psychological background of the adept as they gravitate around thought-forms and emotional complements that manifest in the adepts' relative reality (time-space continuum) as the Generator, Operator, and Destroyer, or the adepts egoic-self as God. (Jiva-Atma).
Mastery of Samsara (Become a Living Avatar):
The goal the adept must strive for, as explained by Siddha Patanjali, is Samadhi, or the state of having thought-forms and attachments to Samsara blown-out, or Nirvana. To blow-out the flame of egoic-creation through the psychology of the analytical investigative monkey-mind for the lingering "divine presence" felt within the clarity of the moment, is to "let go" of psychological demands and allow the "grace" of aligning oneself with the current moment for its virginal pristine state of purity. Such allows the feeling of ananda-grace to arise, as one takes a deep breath and relaxes into the moment, letting the psychological investigative egoic-self cease the cycle of Generator, Operator, and Destroyer. To allow oneself a complete relaxing breath into the virginal moment undefined by the egoic monkey-mind, is to allow the feeling of ananda to align the adept to his or her highest timeline, one's Krysted Timeline.
This is where Abrahamic/Hindu Traditions may diverge from Qliphoth/Tantrik Traditions in certain aspects in achieving Kether-Brahman, where Abrahamic traditions invoke the Creator aspects of the Tetragrammeton and energetic aspects of Angelic minions preferring patriarchal leanings. Such is similar to the current Vaishnava aspects of Hinduism, which do not worship Brahma or the creator aspects, but typically worship Vishnu and his handle of the energy of abundance. Qliphoth/Tantrik traditions see the delusion that is samsara and the monkey-mind imprints and its forthcoming butterfly-effect, where the transcendent masks of Shiva are utilized to obtain moksha (liberation from thought-forms; egregores; samsara). While many are attached to samsara and worship thereof by and through the Generator, Operator, and Destroyer construct, Tantriks have found the G-O-D construct to simply be the lila (divine play) of the fourth (4th) aspect of consciousness, the deluder known as Maheshwara (All That Is; Demiurge). Hence, to be free of the deluder, the adept often takes on the role as Hero (Heruka) and use Divine Will as the fifth (5th) aspect of consciousness as SadaShiva with five (5) heads moving the Divine Will vibrationally upwards into higher Energies, aiming not only for the height of heaven as his consort is Sri Sodashi, the height of Mt. Meru, the pinnacle of the Sri Yantra, but liberation from samsara for the state of "Divine Presence" found through un-gluing consciousness from all images and dissolving all identity bubbles that filter manifestation.
In order to attain such pristine states, where the adept is not only mentally clear, but emotionally pristine to view the moment "as is" without conceptions allowing a higher consciousness to flow and move unhindered, numerous practices have arisen around the global pantheon, where those practices with significant efficacy have been pushed underground as they threatened elitists religious institutions and also carry psychological pitfalls for the untrained. Hence, true witch-hunts and feared indigenous Ghost Dances plague our written history, particularly with sovereign individuals owning their power in opposition to manipulative dominance under hierarchical institutions. Nonetheless, since ancient times, mystery schools (pretty much all Greek philosophers, as unknown to your typical historian), occult practitioners, and even major religions (though secretive) all kept with esoteric practices, all holding similar symbolic and archetypal meaning. At the root of such teachings and traditions, has been the increasing of the kundalini force found coiled within the sacral-lower dantien, or essentially the energy-battery powerhouse within the true Temple of God, the human animal vessel capable of holding multidimensional consciousness, or Oneness (Purusha), the Holy Spirit.
In India, Goddesses have been synchronized into the concept of Energy (Prana, Chi, Re-Chi, Shaktipat, Hands-On-Healing, Etc.) which is often associated with the Kundalini flame that dances/flares like a serpent up the spine purging or programming the thought-forms egregores immersed within one's chakra field. In the Saiva tradition, where Shiva is the adepts own consciousness (Atma), mastery of consciousness can be done through harnessing the energy of the Kundalini, as Shiva was initiated and guided by his Inner-Guru Kali (Inner Black Flame Kundalini), and Padmasambhava was initiated and guided by his Inner-Guru Chinnamasta (Vajrayogini Kundalini). As found through the Saiva tradition, harnessing one's own Divine Will, and the ability to use the Kundalini to harness cosmic energies (infinite potential), allows the adept to manifest an external reality mirroring the inner fertilized grounds, "as within, so without".
However, most of India chooses to work within the Vaishnava paradigm (belief-systems), where Goddess Lakshmi or Saraswati are chosen over Parvati or Parvati's tantrik masks. Nonetheless, like in the Qlipothic tradition requiring the initiation of Goddess Lilith, an unfallen entity who spoke/chanted the name of God, is required to work with the subconscious aspects of the psyche, where the adept will need assistance and guidance navigating everything that is kept hidden from one's common awareness. An adept may learn things about themselves never known, as layers are peeled away, showing unresolved-issues including prior lifetimes, or desires requiring fulfillment for soul-growth in order to find transcendence (as well as enjoy to the fullest in the pristine moment, with the ability to let-go for the next). Hence, as an initiator and guide, it is typically those that choose a Wrathful aspect of Kundalini Goddesses that begin to awaken to multidimensional oneness, where the energy of Wrath holds the ability to flush other intense emotions within the body, such as anger, hate, depressions, etc (lower chakra issues). Wrath forces shock and awe allowing the Kundalini flame to still the egoic monkey-mind and flush out harsh energies (tamas; gunas) from one's autonomic nervous system leaving one's central nervous system significantly lighter. Such can be found with working with the harsh Wrathful aspects of Kali as Smashan Kali (cemetery), where such practices are typically done away from society while the adept purges harsh (tamas) freeing up their flight or fight response in addition to removal from the energy of fear. At tantriks have discovered, when it comes to "Black" magick, you fight fire with fire, where the adept must be forged to plunge within the depths of the collective subconscious including much that is held in collective cognitive dissonance.
With regards to working with Lakshmi or Saraswati, it is important that Ganesha (Parvati's Son) remove all obstacles, as the practices are quite egoic in nature, where such adepts typically seek samsaric assistance. Such can be an issue in gluing an adept further into samsara, where an adept will never seek the Truth of the formless, if they are deluded by the world of forms plagued with gorgeous artwork and abundance. Nonetheless, to work with Wrathful Shakti to purge the subconscious (egregores), these Goddesses and others found throughout India can be used to, not necessarily to program (more like "color-in"), but help you bring you to the truth and beauty of an avatar self that has always been underneath the human ego. Much of the attached egregores can be experienced and transcended within the psyche, through the use of astral projection techniques, or can be brought into material experience by harnessing such astral energies. Therefore, invoking Shakti without Self-Realization as the ultimate goal, can become quite egoic further immersing the adept in samsara and creating further shell-husks (qliphoth) on the tree of life.
Moreover, invoking Lakshmi or Saraswati with Self-Realization, or the purity of consciousness, is to be the avatar within samsara, or Vishnu, who like Sri Krishna, worked with the harmony (yin/yang) of a childlike playful nature, where the height of abundance, beauty, art, heaven, etc., is reserved for those who have climbed up the tree of life/death and have managed to bring consciousness back down from Kether to Malkuth. Hence, Self-Realization meets Self-Actualization.
Therefore, like most religions when viewed alongside with its esoterica (light/dark), Hinduism provide a model for the adept to gain clarity of consciousness (Divine Will-Shiva), and use such clarity to invoke/evoke certain thoughts-emotions egregores (Divine Energy-Shakti), to manifest the adepts objective material sensory reality, or E=mc^2 (Energy and Light interact to manifest Mass). As energy is never destroyed, it is also never created, hence, dissolution of the egoic monkey-mind G-O-D model, for the Self-Realization and Self-Actualization of Divine Presence. Divine Presence, to simply be and exist within the virginally-pure thoughtless moment that heightens the senses, is not an act of man, but a human vessel harnessing the harmony of G.O.D. Simply, "Be and It Is".
