Meditating with Masters

Meditating_with_mastersMeditation is poorly understood by many. It is about changing the mind field to reach a thought-free state of awareness, before reaching consciousness. Living with the Masters and learning from them is perhaps the ideal way of reaching such a goal.

    Central Nervous System – the Pathway to Meditation
    The Brain and the Spinal Cord with the Spinal Plexuses are both neurocomputers and quantum computers. Cognitive brain functions are understood as “neurocomputation” in axonal–dendritic synaptic networks of neurons. Cognitive neurocomputation with Awareness is accompanied by gamma synchrony EEG.
    Consciousness neurocomputation is based on quantum computation in microtubules within dendrites in cortex and other regions linked by dendritic–dendritic gap junctions (“dendritic webs”) acting as laterally connected input layers of the brain’s neurocomputational architecture. Within dendritic webs, consciousness is proposed to occur.
    Gamma synchrony EEG is derived from neuronal groups linked by dendritic–dendritic gap junctions, forming “dendritic webs.” When a gap junctions open and close, a gamma-synchronized dendritic web can rapidly change the brain’s geometry or topology and move through the brain as an performing collective integration with consciousness.
    The “conscious pilot” is a metaphorical description for a mobile gamma-synchronized dendritic web as vehicle for a conscious agent/pilot which experiences and assumes control of otherwise non-conscious auto-pilot neuro-computation.
    Consciousness emerges from computational intelligence.
    Research has shown that consciousness, while correlating with gamma synchrony EEG, moves around the brain through input/integration via dendritic-dendritic gap junctions of the brains-spinal cord neuronal networks.
    Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD (MIT, Harvard) reviews scientifically hard and easy problems surrounding consciousness in biology and cognitive science. He proposes that consciousness is primary and only appears in and as matter. The experience of Consciousness happens through Awareness by aking a Cosmic Connection.

      Ganesha is the Central Nervous System
      Before making the whole universe, before making Kundalini, before making the whole world Shree Ganesha was established. Mataji Nirmala Devi
      Shakti created Ganesha from earth element and His manifestation differs at different times, He appears dancing like a child and sometimes like a majestically wise philosopher. Always ready, alert, and an obedient child of Shakti. Whenever a devotee takes His name in Her presence, She feels glorified and showers Her blessings.
      He is a sweet, cherubic personality with qualities of balance in life, innocence, purity, wisdom, joy, devotion, dedication, complete surrender to divine and fearlessness. Therefore, for all who practice meditation, Ganesha is the sturdy persona who helps others acquire knowledge, of our ascent in life. To develop the qualities of Ganesha within us, we need to worship Ganesha from within, as well as, from exterior in physical forms. Ganesha is within every one of us. Only enlightening His presence in us, can we establish incredible blessed qualities and His blessings within.
      For a balance in life, innocence, purity, wisdom, joy, devotion, dedication, and complete surrender to divine with fearlessness is the path. He is the strong basic support of our ascent in spiritual life. Worship Ganesha from within because he is within every one of us.
      Subtle system: Every creature is functioning due to the presence of the Autonomic Nervous System within: the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nervous system that keeps body operative and in harmony. With a network of nerves (plexuses) and sensory organs they are connected
      internally with a subtle system of three channels (nadis, sympathetic and parasympathetic) and energy centers (chakras/plexuses) which look after our physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual being.
      The nadis and chakras are intact within us but in the deactivated form.
      Knowledge of scriptural texts take us to ‘self-realization,’ which Paramahansa Yogananda defined “the knowing — in body, mind, and soul — that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”
      Through life changing dynamics, there is Kundalini awakening. Qualities of Ganesha start manifesting spontaneously, effortlessly and are seen to express themselves in our daily life, just by mere practicing of meditation in our everyday life.
      Shree Mataji said, “When the Kundalini rises, automatically you develop your own balances and that balanced life manifests outside… Because we are imbalanced, that’s why nature has gone into imbalance.”
      Therefore on sitting down to meditation, salute your Guru and Ganesa as soon as you sit in the Asana. As you advance in practice you will have to do Pranayamas daily. Sagarbha Pranayama is a mental japa of any mantra, either the Gayatri or mentally chanting of Om.

    Pranayama is of three components. When the breath is expired, it is Rechaka. When the breath is drawn in, it is Puraka. When breath is suspended, it is Kumbhaka.
    Kumbhaka is retention of breath. It increases lifetime lived. It enhances the inner spiritual force, dynamism and energy. Taking the breath to the Sahasrahara at the top of the head and keeping it there, conquers death. Pranayama sequence is: Puraka ~ Rechaka ~ Kumbhaka ~ Rechaka ~ Puraka … it is regulated by space of time and numbers:
    4 seconds Puraka ~ 4 seconds (intara) Rechaka ~ 4 seconds Kumbhaka ~ 4 seconds (bahiya) Rechaka: is one cycle of 4 breaths in 60 seconds or 1 minute.
    The length of breaths and pauses between breaths can be extended gradually over time and continued practices with pranayama. The pauses are external during exhalation and internal during inhalation.
    A student of pranayama should slowly take the number of Pranayamas to eighty at one sitting several times a day, but have the best effect on awakening in the morning for arousing the sleeping Kundalini.
    The goal of Pranayama is to unite and elevate all Pranic Vayus, as well as elevating Apana upwards with the united Pranayama towards the head. The scope of Inhalation is from the head down to the soles of the feet. This is to be ascertained through a ‘touch’ sensation.
    The ‘fixing’ of the Prana in the seven Chakras step by step, and stage by stage to the last lotus in the head, is where perfect Samadhi takes place. This is internal.

    The Idea of ‘Not Me’ is the Cause of Human Bondage.
    This object before our Mind is not inside the Mind: it is outside the Mind.
    If it is outside the Mind, the Mind cannot get it. If it is inside the Mind, there is no need of wanting it!
    That journey with the Devi Mahatmayam allows us to do a ‘make over’ over the next ten days. It is hoped Mother Dirga gives us the impression of the Reality of Life.
    It is time for understanding the two parts that I am – the perishable mortal (Prakriti – Mind) and the permanent (Purusha), that is imperishable.
    Durga reveals light-and-darkness! Both are the same as prakriti and purusha are, the subject and object.
    The idea of ‘not me’ is the bondage.
    This object before our Mind is not inside the Mind: it is outside the Mind.
    If it is outside the Mind, the Mind cannot get it. If it is inside the Mind, there is no need for wanting it.
    The Soul (Atma) is unseen but forever present.
    The Soul is the sovereign monarch of both, Mind (Prakriti) and Creator (Purusha) like a concealed dormant Fire.
    Therefore both Purusha (Brahma) and Prakriti (Durga) are beginingless or anadi.
    Prakriti simply means unintelligent material existence.
    Purusha is a name for intelligent non-material existence.
    Consciousness and matter, awareness and its object, this is prakriti and purusha.
    If the two things are anadi, they will surely clash with each other. Like Shumbha-Nishumbha, and Madhu-Kaitabha: they are and will become sources of great trouble.
    Only God (Brahman) can be anadi.
    When there are two things, like white and black, day and night, no relationship is possible. Prakriti simply means unintelligent material existence.
    Purusha is the name for intelligent non-material existence: Consciousness and matter, awareness and its object, this is prakriti and purusha.
    In my own creation, there is the maintenance causal pattern in which I am created , and the soul cast into this pattern.
    Creation is a perpetual action, and only the nature of the patterns change or can be changed.
    Eternally there will always be this causal pattern, and only the soul will be and can be made to become different.
    Tomorrow another changed soul will enter into this causal pattern and it will think in a different way, but with the same face.
    Every mortal prays: At the end of Navratri, Mother allow me to come out different through moulding, casting and remoulding!
    Then what makes real change possible?
    Purusha and Prakriti must strike each other, then only does the Fire (pranava Om), appear. The Soul (Atma) becomes known only when the body (Prakriti) is kindled by Praṇava (Om) during meditation. But why?
    This Soul or Atma remains undetectable within all that is created, both visible and invisible! Only one who meditates sincerely upon Om receives the blessings of Prakriti.

    Maha Vidyas
    Spiritual learning about the Goddess Durga is the muse that guides and inspires us over the days of Navratri. She is the high priest who unfolds
    the inner truth, we are not even aware of. .
    The soul – atma is the Mother with 10 different names. Shiva within is in Yoga Nidra. When a seeker surrenders to the Mother by following any one of 10 Maha Vidyas, a seeker rrealizes She is none other than Shiva externally, but appears as Mother internally as Siva. This is the secret meaning of all Maha Vidyas.
    One who follows these vidyas understand the Mind beyond the mundane.
    Worship of these goddesses suggest the devotee experiences inspirational understanding that frees spirituality away from all fixed social orders.
    The central aim here is to stretch awareness beyond the conventional and to break away from approved social norms, roles, and expectations.
    An adept devotee seeks to release her or his consciousness from inherited (causal), imposed (habits), and inhibiting divisions (likes-dislikes) of the proper and
    improper, good and bad, and the polluted and pure.
    Living life according to rules of purity dictate how bodily role is exercised. Mahavidyas make easy this escape. By identifying with the forbidden or marginalized, an adept seeker earns a refreshing perspective.
    Navratri is a mystical adventure, without which experience from a spiritual search remains incomplete. Goddess is the muse that guides and inspires us. She is the high priest who unfolds the inner truths.
