Because of my spiritual practices, mainly meditation and attempting to en/invoke a sensation of something higher than what I've considered myself to be, I've realized that truth is found within. The truth of of the falsity of what our typical senses believe, and the ability to control one's own inner sensation or vibration by using the imagination to manipulate the emotional body to reach for a higher feeling, leads to an inner cleansing, or rather, an unplugging from the crap-shoot story-line that we've been externally programmed into.
As I progress, more and more of what I would have typically believed to be "real", what I can perceive with my senses, especially my eyes, has now held the feeling of watching a cloud pass by and dissolve before me. So much has been programmed into us, from our parents who were just trying to survive in the system, our education which was designed to keep us turning this broken wheel of a system, and religion which usurped the magick of the individual in exchange for mass spiritual manipulation, very few individuals within this collective have sought to unplug from the external programming. From the likes of Jesus, Mohammed, and Siddharta, the desire to leave society and seek truth beyond the collective evolution and seek the wilderness or the empty caves and clear one's own psychology is slowly being brought forth to the masses through concepts of presence or mindfulness. To be mindful of the virginal moment sans opinion/belief/memories/reactions, to rest in the sensation of spirit known as the one that observes is the only spiritual practice that seems to be worth a damn, as it personally unites you to the divine Higher Self, the definition of Yoga.
While so many, under the assumption that what they perceive with their senses as "real", like an actor lost in his role while filming a movie, like Spirit (Shiva/Father) lost (Maya/Shakti/Mother) in his role (Jiva/Son) within the theater of the divine's womb (Mahamaya/Shakti/Mother), many are fully engaged in their roles and are currently lost in the chaos collectively expressed through American Politics. You have two candidates who despite what they verbally articulate to the masses, have been completely exposed for who they truly are behind closed doors, are expressing the underbelly of what is psychologically being purged within all of us. With the latest cosmic planetary movements, from the eclipses to the numerological portal openings as 8/8/16, 9/9/16, and 10/10/16, to the religious festivities in numerous traditions all falling towards the end of the year, my meditative practice has left me drained facing my darkest fears and everything that has held me back in life. In addition, I'm recognizing the triggers that I feel arising within myself, in dealing with characters I simply cannot fathom due to being from completely different worlds and expressing sentiments I would normally despise, as parlaying into significant psychic attacks leaving me further drained and well into panic attacks.
Consciously, I seek the divine, I seek presence, I seek inner fulfillment to the point where nothing externally found through my typical senses can effect my inner harmony. I seek to tap into the ultimate reality that the Hindus called Brahman, to blow out all thought and reach beyond mind as the Buddhists call Nirvana, to tap into the indescribable as it something not of this world known as the Tao, or the nonexistence of Ain of the Qabalist Tree of Life.
To turn off the biological form, to turn off logic for the greater feels of intuition, to feel consciously into something that is unknown and cannot be known through logic, that is to unplug. To unplug is to allow the form (Jiva/Son) to rest, rejuvenate, and replenish. To unplug is to allow one's inner vibration (Shakti/Mother) to de-connect from the sensory role and play and allow her to bring us to fulfillment. To unplug is to allow one to re-connect with Spirit (Shiva/Father), Yogic completion.
The Self of the self-realized yogin (experiences itself as a sheer) actor (in the drama of life in the world playing various roles in his outer being but remaining absolutely detached from the entire play essentially).
Something is brewing on this planet, a major catalyst for change that will shake everything up. It's time for a new direction for the story-line. My only question is, are we ready to lead in the new direction, for those of the light who work in the dark?
Overly educated and continuously exploring and revealing more behind the veil.
