The Meditator in Love

Meditation is against false love

“If you can move into love making totally, the ego disappears because at the highest peak, at the highest climax of lovemaking, you are pure energy” – Osho (artist unknown)

Love is a many splendid thing and so misunderstood. At a base level love is seen or experienced as an attachment, at it’s highest it’s an inseparability with the universe. Due to karma, the consequences resulting in our situation and perception, everyone has a different understanding of love.

The fact that we can’t agree, that we so oft feel disconnected cannot be resolved intellectually, it is only through meditation, the art of yoga that provides an inner connection to life

Is Saving Ourselves Possible?

Or avoiding another mass extinction event

The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.

The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.

In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

Why Meditation?

A foundational practise

Most people understand that activities go better with some planning and while some things that occur spontaneously can be brilliant, some can go horribly wrong. Meditation grounds us in a reality that leads to a harmonious life and success.

Whatever we do, we want to be successful but sometimes the best planning and our most sincere actions don’t always result in success. But if we look at some of the people who meditate, they range from executives within the world’s most successful companies to ordinary people who want to achieve the best out of life.

Many meditators say that meditation is actually instinctive and this is borne out by the fact that usually before we commence any

Political Correctness

Artificial niceness

We’ve been hearing a lot about “PC Culture” from the conservative media and presidential candidates lately, and the consensus seems to be that all of this political correctness is stifling our right to freedom of speech. But when has speaking out against discrimination and hate ever stripped someone else of their ability to voice their opinion? You still have the freedom to say whatever you want, and the “PC Police” still have the right to tell you how wrong you are.

Political correctness is just a fancy term for not telling the truth and preventing others from being truthful. The term was originally used within the Communist Party in Stalin’s Russia to describe which opinions on

Ending War

The dream of humanity

If we look at small tribes of hunters and gatherers, they have a natural hierarchy around the collective survival of their communities because every individual is important and valued. There is no one person that can do anything nor is there any one person who would want to do everything. Overtime every individual evolved a role to play in order to support the community by doing what needed to be done.

In larger communities that arose with the development of agriculture, these gave some people more free time and occupations diversified not only for community survival but self aggrandisement. The ideas of trade and profit led to an inflated sense of self-worth as the end result

Beyond the Body

Obstacles to healing

We exist within our physical body and it becomes a playground for working out some of our karma as we have experiences ranging from vibrant health to debilitating illnesses.

Most of us identify ourselves as our body and refer to our body as me, myself or I. Yet anyone familiar with any modern understanding of spirituality will recognise that the body is a vehicle and what we refer to as ‘I’ is something greater.

Our body is composed of about 70% water and a collection of elements and stuff which is obtained from the earth via the foods we eat. But even our mind is considered as being something physical, it is a bioelectrical system that facilitates

Jody's magical life

Part three of Jody’s journey

Part onepart two

On the night that Jody walked away from the farmstead, she and the two mountain lions walked for about four hours before they lay down together and slept. Before dawn one of the cats went away for an hour and returned with a couple of rabbits. Jody ate a token portion of meat and as the animals ate their breakfast, she ate some wild dandelions. She didn’t see or hear a battle taking place back at the homestead, yeyt she knew all was lost there. They wandered deeper into the wilderness and Jody would sometimes sit to meditate and she would be gone for

Yoga Benefits Health

The world’s most ancient science

Yes, Yoga is the world’s oldest science with a history dating back at least 15,000 years. In the Christianised Western culture, people may think this is impossible, but through the discoveries of archaeology and the translation of ancient texts, this is completely verified.

As a science, yoga does not set out to define or capitalise on anything, rather it is a step-by-step process, a system of self-study and evaluation through which health and vitality grows.

Although yoga developed in India, its practices are common to all people regardless of skin colour or gender. As the world opened up during the 19th century, seekers of truth began travelling to India and India yogis began travelling to

The Power of Meditation

The outside is a reflection of what is within

If you become fully meditative, you will be beyond karma

Some people want to understand the world, some people want power and control, some people want pleasure, some people want to be helpful and is much as people want all manner of things, they all want to be happy.

People with the will can shape the world and influence people for good or bad and when they are successful, they experience some temporary pleasure or satisfaction, but this does not make them happy.

When we look at life we realise there can be no happiness without peace and there can be no real happiness when everyone around you is miserable.

Meditation

An inward journey

There are a great many forms of mediation emanating from our spiritual traditions and it is widely recognised that meditation helps to:

calm the mind provide relaxation provide focus and meaning in life improve general health and even cure some medical conditions.

It is a challenge to define meditation, but simply put, when one is present with an undivided mind, meditation happens. Meditation is helpful because by being present with a still mind, it is possible to observe the root cause of illness or discomfort.

Meditation is actually a natural process for human beings and it is largely intuitive. People have been meditating and if we take Buddhist culture as an example, we can see there is
