I compiled this knowledge into a four day workshop to open the understanding of oneself. For long storied reasons, I never gave the course. I thought it would be a good idea to publish the material anyway for the benefit of others...

Thanks to them I could develop my thoughts to what I am.
So here is my course "Silence Inside & Life, the Universe and Everything".
In the old days there was a wisdom that we from today can hardly grasp...
We are so distracted... With our inner dialogs.
Our will is misdirected and steering in the worst case against our FATE.
We have to bow to the unevitable and stop fighting.
Inner dialogs? Yes, the little angel and the little devil on the shoulder....
Each one of the two represents one side of a dual expression of the eight levels of evolution. But more to that later.
Doing exactly the cosmic will would make you un-failable.
How? Enjoy what you are doing. Otherwise it won't be good enough.
Has anyone seen a christian bishops conference? If not, let me tell you, it's not looking like fun at all.
Here are some words from AC:
AC/ The Word sin has but one translation: Restriction. it is that which hinders one from fulfilling his true Will ./AC
AC/ Beauty and Strength come from doing one s Will; you have only to look at any one who is doing it to recognize the glory of it./AC
AC/.. the first task of the Aspirant is to disarm all his thoughts, to make himself impregnably above the influence of any one of them. Secondly, he must impose absolute silence upon them, as may be done by the Yoga practices. He is then ready to analuse them, to organize them, to drill them, and so to take advantage of the properties peculiar to each one by employing its energies in the service of his imperial purpose./AC
The yoga way to silence thoughts is to repeat a Mantra. Anythig is cool. Instead of getting distracted by random thoughts use all concentration to
Inhale >>> OM >>> MA >>>> NI
If you do it right, other thoughts are gone and the only thing your brain can do is repeating this words.
In its most basic form this is called prayer or meditation.
The more elevated form of the same approach is to use your WILL to have an intentional effect on your surroundings or yourself. Repeat that for some time.
Pray to any God you like for enough time and you'll see how he appears. This fact is where all this Kabala, magic spell etc. comes from.
If you now use this will toward your inside, magical things start to happen. You are changing yourself!
RECEIVE LOVE - GAIN ENTHUSIASM - LEARN THE TEACHINGS - PARTICIPATE IN RITUALS -
FEAR LESS, FEEL MORE - DO ALLOW ALL EXPERIENCES - GUIDED BY BELIEF, DO NOT RESTICT - DIRECT LOVE
Welcome to the first AURA Workshop.
I recommend you don't try to read all in one day. Read a day and come back and read another day.
I don't really know how far out to start our journey. We all have such distinct mind sets.... But there are parallels in all of us that merit mentioning:
ERIKSON/ Erikson's theory consist of eight stages of development. Each stage is characterized by a different conflict that must be resolved by the individual. When the environment makes new demands on people, the conflicts arise. "The person is faced with a choice between two ways of coping with each crisis, an adaptive, or mal-adaptive way. Only when each crisis is resolved, which involves a change in the personality, does the person have sufficient strength to deal with the next stages of development"(Schultz and Schultz, 1987). If a person is unable to resolve a conflict at a particular stage, they will confront and struggle with it later in life. /ERIKSON
TL/ To understand neurological space, Dr. Leary assumes that the nervous system consists of eight potential circuits, or "gears," or mini-brains. Four of these brains are in the usually active left lobe and are concerned with our terrestrial survival; four are extraterrestrial, reside in the "silent" or inactive right lobe, and are for use in our future evolution. /TL
Buddism's Eightfold Path: View, Intention, Speech, Action, Livelihood, Effort, Mindfullness, Concentration....
Let us go back into the beginning of our life, the past of our mental evolution:
TL/ basic attitude of trust or suspicion which will ever after trigger approach or avoidance./TL
An old greek saying goes: A healthy spirit in a healthy body. We have a lifestyle that is negligent at best with all that this universe has taught us so far. Sitting for eight hours in front of a computer and the rest of the wake-time in front of a TV.
The digestive system decides if substances are poisonous or beneficial. The bloodstream distributes, lungs breathe rhythm into the heart beat, which in turn, according to Dan Winter, produces extreme heart beat harmonics when joyful and ecstatic. This harmonics are in the ultraviolet wavelength and apparently wiggle the DNA of all our cells into the perfect shape, the golden proportion. You all have heard that happy people are less sick.
Our body is sacred, marvelous and unfathomable. This instrument of God given to our souls is supposed to take care of itself. Without daily pills and corrective diets.
Muscle tensions are the results of adaptive processes to fit in the daily routines and choirs. I am sitting in an office with air-condition and have my window open. Cold air is passing over my back. Muscles get tense and twisted on one side and stay soft on the other side. Muscles are attached to bones. Bones get pulled off their correct position. Other muscles attached to this same bone stretch to release the tension, thereby creating new problem points. Spinal column bones are very prone to this kind of avalanche effect and all kinds of ills are the result.
By allowing oneself to regular receive an alignment of the muscles and tendons, one is able to alleviate and finally eliminate the base of bodily discomfort thereby guaranteeing better body condition and opening the possibilities for a healthier spirit and life. Most peoples' headaches are based on tense muscles around the neck. Popping a pill is not the correct approach and adds hemorrhoids.
>>>>>>>>>>>>> Explain Aikido head and muscle routine.
The Root Chakra and the included sex organs are the most sacred body part we have. Sex organs are the only vehicle to maintain humanity, us and all what our ancestors fought for. All other organs are second to this. Lust is good. Sex is good. Enjoy it, together. It is all about love and unity. Who needs a virgin! We westerners have such a ballast from our current religion's tabus, that it is a pure wonder that there are still humans on this planet. But Nature always succeeds.
We are not a little speck of dust in a remote corner of this galaxy, but connected beings of light.
AC/ Our minds and bodies are veils of the Light within. /AC
CC/ All the faculties, possibilities and accomplishments of shamanism from the simplest to the most astounding, are in the human body itself. /CC
AC/ "I will give thee the wisdom the serpent, but thou must cleanse thy brain. Purge thuself in the sun. It is the love of others that will purify thee most. /AC
ICHING/ The real nature of man is likewise originally good, but it becomes clouded by contact with earthly things and therefore needs purification before it can shine forth in its native clarity./ ICHING
AC/ He wants us to overcome shame generally, and says "There is no shame about me, is there?"/AC
>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1st set of aura photo sessions.
I have always made a difference between emotions and feelings. Emotions are echoes of memorized, past feelings. And emotions are normally bad, because they restrict the current, new feelings. Past punishments will modulate my future behavior. Except if I am shameless.
On this level we learn how to go to the toilet. Shame and doubt are planted. WE STAND UP.
CC/ To be angry at people means that one considers their acts to be important. It is imperative to cease to feel that way. The act of man cannot be important enough to offset our only viable alternative: our unchangeable encounter with infinity. /CC
TL/ The first imprint on this circuit remains constant for life and identifies the stimuli which will automatically trigger dominant, aggressive behavior or submissive, cooperative behavior./TL
CC/ Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy and in vain. To be a warrior one needs to be light and fluid. The seer sees that every man is in touch with everything else, not through his hands, but through a bunch of long fibers that shoot out in all directions from his abdomen. Those fibers join a man to his surroundings; they keep his balance; they give him stability. /CC
CC/ A warrior doesn't remorse for anything he has done, because to isolate one's acts as being mean or ugly, or evil is to place an unwanted importance on the self. The trick is what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. /CC
CC/ Self- importance is man's greatest enemy. What weakens him is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of his fellow men. Self-importance requires that one spend most of one's life offended by something or someone. /CC
AC/ Let the Aspirant live the life of a strong and beautiful being, proud and exalted, contemptuous of and fierce toward all that is base and vile. /AC
AC/ As long as a man can get rid of his surplus Energy in enjoyment, he finds life easy, and submits. Deprive him of Pleasure, of Ecstasy, and his mind begins to worry about the way in which he is exploited and oppressed. Very soon he begins furtively to throw bombs; and, gathering strength, to send his tyrants to the gallows. /AC
ICHING/ Among mankind also there are necessarily differences of elevation; it is impossible to bring about universal equality. But it is important that differences in social rank should not be arbitrary and unjust, for if this occurs, envy and class struggle are the inevitable consequences. If, on the other hand, external differences in rank correspond with differences in inner worth, and if inner worth forms the criterion of external rank, people acquiesce and order reigns in society. /ICHING
This level is about learning to learn. I want to teach two things: The Blue Sphere and the eight-fold path to enlightenment. Let me tell you all about an infallible method of protecting oneself: The blue sphere. This is something I discovered while I was in the sorry state of paranoia about witchcraft and the like. I imagined a spherical mirror around myself, a mirror with reflective properties against any bad vibes and with transparent properties for all intentional good vibes. It would just simply reflect this energies back to the sender. No energy wasted, no active participation against evil. Filtered away. It helped then... Well, this imagined mirror exists! And what I said holds true today. If you believe in the protective properties, it will work and give you an additional layer of protection for there rest of your life. You can even create one around objects! Any color is fine. Imagine a big sphere around your house, one around the wound you have, protect your baby with an extra one, the possibilities are endless. This kind of thought activities has real effects! Please don't forget that I mentioned this exercise. It can repel mosquitos and bad vibes.
Another thing that we have to address here today is the eight-fold nature of our spirit. I Ching, Lamaism, Buddhism, Psychologists, Anthropologists all say the same. We are composed of eight levels of evolution: Since we were the one-celled slime blob crawling around one of the 360 degrees of freedom, we developed territorial reactions with forward-back motion, used ever more successful language to transfer skills and toolmaking abilities and finally use rituals and festive days to participate in group/clan/social activities. Rules, laws and taboos define day to day interactions.
TL/ Language becomes a symbol for interaction in the world, defining thought and memory. With the tool of language one becomes a learner, a receiver of the teachings of the social order. /TL
This beautiful bluish sphere is called an Aura. The Aura is an electrostatic field around all living creatures that can be measured and displayed. We can manipulate it by pure, intentional will power as we will demonstrate. You all have already met Krishna and he has photographed and stored the initial status and energy balance of your unique, personal auras. This course is meant to amplify and balance each participants aura field through conscious focus on the invisible causes.
AC/ Reason itself is a lie. He explains that this must be the case in the nature of things. The Reason may be in perfect order and never make a mistake, that is, within the limits of its powers. But it can never be certain of being right unless its knowledge is complete, which of course can never happen. In fact, being bound by its own laws, it has no means of finding out whether in any one case there may not be some factor vital to the problem of whose very nature it has no knowledge at all/AC
CC/ We hardly realize that we can cut anything out of our lives, anytime, in the blink of an eye. /CC
CC/ Whatever we know is limited. Gravely limited to only what we experienced. Thus knowledge cannot be our reference. We have to follow the path with heart. On a path without heart we will forever struggle to like the path and not see the wonders of it. /CC
BP/ Think positive is said easier then done, but if you just re-phrase the half empty glass to the half full glass for some years, if you intentional lie to yourself about your inner state by spicing it up (being a fatalistic optimist), the accidents and bad luck wears off. The magic is done by repetition of anything you like, reinforcement of positive thought structures. /BP
BP/ Whatever you think up, you got to be comfortable with it. Your thoughts have to be pleasant and consistent or they are useless or even harmful. If you start to believe in confusing and threatening issues, you steal you own resolve and integrity. If something looks threatening, you have to change your perception of it or cease to think about it. If something bothers you, change it until it does not bother anymore. Only by eliminating all negative, dragging thoughts can you expect to get harmonious in yourself. Most of the time it is not the situation, but our interpretation, that crates the problem./BP
4 TABUS AND RITUALS
We get born into a society with its rituals, laws and religion. To not be an outcast, we have to adapt and bow. Obey the laws of society. Fear the punishments.
A sorry state is guaranteed. Confused at the least. This is the state of each and every teenager leaving high-school. All what is left after the full treatment of some 20 years is a physically poisoned, emotional scarred, know nothing trained in something who avoids confrontation.
The problem are all this "verboten" rules. Self-made or external. Not even robots can handle that correctly. Natural growth is the only acceptable form of development.
This first four levels are restricting events in each ones life. Health, Emotions, Language and Society. All, one after the other, will leave their specific stamp on you and limit your infinite, starting point some more.
The opposite following four levels are: Sensuality, Awareness, Impeccability and Ego Transcendence.
TL/ This four are extraterrestrial, reside in the "silent" or inactive right lobe, and are for use in our future evolution. /TL
We will talk more about this levels the next two days. But back to the first four....
Chackra states/ The challenge of this activity is that the subtle and higher truths of the upper bodies are distorted into preexisting mental concepts by the lower Manas. Further disruption occurs when these messages pass through the desire body, which colors the information with the preferences and dislikes of the individual. In the average person, by the time any communication moves from the higher to the lower bodies it has been hopelessly distorted by the intervening urges and thoughts. In the majority of humans today, the higher Manas is not an active principle. /Chackra states
And this is the state that most people are in onto death takes over.
AC/ We have here a picture of the average man, of a fool. He has no will of his own, is all things to all men, is void, a repeater of words of whose sense he knows nought, a drifter, both idle and violent, compact partly of fierce passions that burn up both himself and the other, but mostly of inert and characterless nonentity, with a little heaviness, dullness, and stupefaction for his only positive qualities. /AC
AC/A further challenge now rings out. Aiwass insists that we shall use all our functions as fully as we can. We are to enjoy all things, to make them serve our Will and thrill us with rapture. We must dismiss that bogey of those who wish to treat mankind as children without spirit or wit, to frighten us into slavish service to codes of conduct which suit their own servile nature, allay their fears, or procure easy preys for their greed by the threat of some God who will make trouble for those who dare to be themselves and do their own True Wills /AC
AST/ After an excessive focus on emotions and desires, the main thing which binds souls to the lower planes (physical, astral and causal) is an excessive focus on knowledge and conceptual structures. /AST
AC/ This which now follows is the essence of His doctrine. That existence is pure joy is His first direct challenge to the whole body of the best and deepest thought of the best and wisest men of this Earth, from the dawn of man's Records even unto this hour of His speaking. It cuts clean across the whole trend of men's minds with sheer sweep of steel; no truce, nor quarter./AC
AC/ Now the Second Challenge: a Bugle Call shriller and clearer than the First. Sorrow, pain, regret, are symptoms of diseased thought; those only who have ceased to be able to adjust themselves rightly and gladly to all Change, and to grow thereby, or those who still react, but only feebly and vainly, take Sorrow, pain, and regret to be Real. Those (also) who do not yet know Hadit (that is, know their True Selves to be Hadit) are likewise deceived/AC
AC/ The only thing that can do harm is to set limits to That which is by Nature Free and without Bounds. Thus, to find in any special love a distinct joy apart from other loves, or to think that the event of any love, a fixed dead ash of the past, is a living joy, is to fall into the Power of the Lords of Matter, to have to obey the Laws of Death, to lose all Freedom, and so suffer the Burden of Bondage./AC
>>>>>>>>>>>>> Reiki 1a
Start feeling your body now! Trust your senses. Forget the tabus and warnings. Realtime! That is all what is there to it. The gut feeling is correct. Don't fear past or worry the future. Feel Now! Be aware, hear and see the world. Fearless and in awe.
ICHING/ This is the spirit that must animate leaders and rulers of men-a profound inner seriousness from which all terrors glance off harmlessly. /ICHING
ICHING/ Pleasure shared is pleasure doubled. /ICHING
AC/ It is obvious to the physiologist that beauty (that is, the fitness of proportion) and love (that is, the natural attraction between things whose union satisfies both) need for fulfillment absolute spontaneity and freedom from restriction. /AC
AC/ Sin is defined as Restriction: that is; the setting of limits, or the desire to set limits, to any thing that is, seeing that as above set forth the true Nature of all things is to fulfill themselves in all Ways. Yet though all things be thus lawful in themselves, it is often Restriction to act, and Freedom to refrain. For that Freedom is worth the other, and each case must be judged by its own Nature./AC
JP/ "Deprivation of physical affection in human relationships...constitutes the single greatest source of violence in human societies." /JP
AC/ Seek not to control the Will of any other in the matter of Love, setting limits either to the Will to Love or the Will to seek elsewhere the Goal of Will. For Love itself is the sole bond; all others set up strains against the Nature of Things; whereby cometh at last the ruin of all./AC
CC/ The shaman seers of ancient times, through their seeing, first noticed that any unusual behavior produced a tremor in the assemblage point. They soon discovered that if unusual behavior is practiced systematically and directed wisely, it eventually forces the assemblage point to move. /CC
AC/ Do what thou wilt shall be the only law. Love under will! /AC
AC/Love is thus shown as the means by which will may be brought to success/AC
AC/ I am a mystic and am directed by an internal compass. I am not outer-directed. /AC
People are either driven by REASON or choose to act with INTENT. Reason drives one; intent issues from choice.
Abelar/ "By intending it, but not with your thoughts," he said. "Intend it with your intent, which is the layer beneath your thoughts. Listen carefully, look for it beneath the thoughts, away from them. Intent is so far away from thoughts that we can't talk about it; we can't even feel it. But we can certainly use it." /Abelar
The keen : these are the men whose Will is as a sword sharp and straight, tempered and ground and polished its flawless steel; with a wrist and an eye behind it.
The proud : these are the men who know themselves to be stars, and bend the knee to none. True pride prevents a man from doing aught unworthy of himself.
The royal : these are the men whose nature is kingly, the men who can. They know themselves born rulers, whether their halidom be Art, or Science, or aught else soever.
The lofty : these are the men, who, being themselves high-hearted, endure not any baseness.
1. Furnish your mind as completely as possible with the knowledge of how to inspect and to control it.
2. Train your body to obey your mind, and not to distract its attention.
3. Control your mind to devote itself wholly to discover your true Will.
4. Explore the course of that Will till you reach its source, your Silent Self.
5. Unite the conscious will with the true Will, and the conscious Ego with the Silent Self. You must be utterly ruthless in discarding any atom of consciousness which is hostile or neutral.
6. Let this work freely from within, but heed not your environment, lest you make difference between one thing and another. Whatever it be, it is to be made one with you by Love. /AC
ICHING/ The superior man is always filled with reverence at the manifestation of God; he sets his life in order and searches his heart, lest it harbor any secret opposition to the will of God. Thus reverence is the foundation of true culture. /ICHING
CC/ The seer sees that every man is in touch with everything else, not through his hands, but through a bunch of long fibers that shoot out in all directions from his abdomen. Those fibers join a man to his surroundings; they keep his balance; they give him stability. /CC
CC/ The thrust of a warrior's way is to dethrone self-importance. And everything warriors do is directed toward accomplishing this goal./CC
AC/ Now in one lyric blaze of music Nuit declares Herself the daughter of Sunset and the Shining Truth Night, calling all Souls to their supreme Goal of Joy to Fulfill Themselves in Her /AC
AC/``Wisdom says: be strong! Then canst thou bear more joy. Be not animal; refine thy rapture! If thou drink, drink by the eight and ninety rules of art: if thou love, exceed by delicacy; and if thou do aught joyous, let there be subtlety therein! But exceed! exceed! Strive ever to more! and if thou art truly mine--and doubt it not, an if thou art ever joyous!--death is the crown of all.'' Lift yourselves up, my brothers and sisters of the earth! Put beneath your feet all fears, all qualms, all hesitancies! Lift yourselves up! Come forth, free and joyous, by night and day, to do your will; for ``There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.'' Lift yourselves up! Walk forth with us in Light and Life and Love and Liberty, taking our pleasure as Kings and Queens in Heaven and on Earth. /AC
>>>>>>>>>>>>> Reiki 1b
One of the oldest belief system comes from Egypt and explains three deities in charge of the Universe.
Please go with me for a moment into the past of the evolution of religion and let me present you with an overview of their functions:
The all-encompassing MOTHER universe giving
loving birth to each and all stars. 0 and 2.
Infinite stillness. Total Expansion.
I love you! I yearn to you! Pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous, I who am all pleasure and purple, and drunkenness of the innermost sense, desire you. Put on the wings, and arouse the coiled splendor within you: come unto me!'' And thus She ends: Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I love you! I am the blue- lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky. To me! To me!'' And with these words ``The Manifestation of Nuit is at an end.''
This, our sun is one of this stars... 1
FATHER of all changes. Pure Joy and constant, effortless, unwavering movement, total compression.
Failure, sorrow, and fear simply cannot exist in the presence of Hadit. His nature is to succeed, to rejoice, and to dare to cause event after event, sure of itself in any and every case. He sees the expansion and the development of the soul through joy.
Creation and Destruction. 3
The unifying force creating friction and/or collision of particles. All is connected and participating.
Duality and Opposition. By creating each and its opposite, total unity/annihilation is possible/guaranteed.
Each of us, we are stars... With a soul in the center.
Connected to all other stars around us we participate in the grand scheme.
Passing Aeons reincarnating and perfectioning our INNER WILL.
REFINING generation after generation the GOD GIVEN INTENT to do what we are supposed to do.
Does this sound like a good description of what we feel standing at night under the stars?
From NULL to the big bang to the egg
Our preserved past
All that survived, All that is NOW
Moving protected on the golden path.
The maximum, best possible future.
This three deities are with us, they love us. We have ALL the support NEEDED to do our TASK on this world. The three want to see us performing at peak performance and thank NUIT for her love with doing the same. How? Enjoy what you are doing. Otherwise it won't be good enough.
AC/ Beauty and strength, the sense of the fitness of the object perceived as a symbol of the success of one's will, and the power of that will itself; leaping laughter and delicious languor, the rapture of joyous up-rush in full freedom of spirit and the delight that follows the success of one's efforts, luring the victor to enjoy the pleasure of knowing himself worthy; force and fire, the ardor of motion, achieving one's will, and the light and heat evolved by the love under will of the Self and its desires: these are the marks of those who know their True Self to be Hadit. /AC
AC/Being once free, refuse to admit that any course of conduct may destroy you. I urge you to beware of the pride of spirit, of the thought of anything as evil or unclean. Make all things serve you in your Magick as weapons. Therefore, be goodly, not humble, base, timid, or frail. Dress like a dandy, eat like a gourmet, drink port and champagne as do the hunting squires and young men about Town. /AC
AC/ We are to learn from this to enjoy all things without losing control of ourselves or ceasing to suffice for ourselves or becoming the slaves of our desire or losing our sense of selfhood. /AC

8 EGO TRANSCENDENCE
How do we go from here? The goal has to be: Maximize luck! Lower the accidents.
I always saw accidents as a necessary evil until the lesson was learned. Take care of your fingers while operating a hammer! On the bigger scheme, shit just happens. But there is this right time right place and wrong time wrong place issue. If I don't restrict my gut feeling with reason and because, i won't be in the wrong place at the wrong time until my God given mission is completed. I guarantee that! This is what I call the Golden Path. If I do what God wants me to do, there would be no complication outside my scope. All will just work as perfect as needed. Materials materialize, needed helpers appear, the whole infrastructure is out to support me. A star moves unobstructed along its God given path. To have the support of the universe in our actions, we have to be like it. Wanting intentional doing the same. Copy good actions and prevent the bad ones. We have to believe in the good of all. I prefer to be deceived then to be suspicious. Create a paradise inside yourself, a peaceful oasis of good memories. A place to believe.
IChing/ But the truly divine does not manifest itself apart from man. The supreme revelation of God appears in prophets and holy men. To venerate them is true veneration of God. The will of God, as revealed through them, should be accepted in humility; this brings inner enlightenment and true understanding of the world, and this leads to great good fortune and success. /IChing
CC/ Warriors must be impeccable in their effort to change. In order to scare the human form and shake it away. After years of impeccability, a moment will come when the human form cannot stand it any longer and leaves. That is to say, a moment will come when the energy field contorted by a lifetime of habit are straightened out. A warrior gets deeply affected, and can even die as a result of this straightening out of energy fields, but an impeccable warrior always survives. /CC
AC/ The destruction of all unworthiness in one's self and one's surroundings. /AC
Our joy tells us WHEN we are on that path
ICHING/ He who departs from innocence, what does he come to? Heaven's will and blessing do not go with his deeds."/ICHING
IChing/ Only a born ruler of men is able to do it, because his will is directed to what is great. He must be like the sun at midday, illuminating and gladdening everything under heaven./ IChing
CC/ Silent knowledge is nothing but direct contact with intent. /CC
To silence the inner dialog, our ego must meet our higher silent self. This is the sum of the unconscious parts of us. Now this thing is connected to the universal expansion of NUIT and the universal contraction of HADIT.
We talked about the nature of the heart and its harmonics generator when full of joy. The heart is exactly doing this: perfect contraction. So perfect that it reverberates into the microcosm of the DNA, accommodating molecules and wiggling all into its place.
Where is the perfect expansion? At the same time inside ourselves. Connected in loving joy with NUIT.
AC/ far better, let him assume this Law to be the Universal Key to every problem of Life, and then apply it to one particular case after another. As he comes by degrees to understand it, he will be astounded at the simplification of the most obscure questions which it furnishes. Thus he will assimilate the Law, and make it the norm of his conscious being; this by itself will suffice to initiate him, to dissolve his complexes, to unveil himself to himself; and so shall he attain the Knowledge and Conversation of his Holy Guardian Angel. /AC
CC/ The spirit listens only when the speaker speaks in gestures. And gestures do not mean signs or body movements, but acts of true abandon, acts of largesse, of humor. As a gesture for the spirit, warriors bring out the best of themselves and silently offer it to the abstract./CC
IChing/ It is the same in human life; there is in man likewise a fate that lends power to his life. And if he succeeds in assigning the right place to life and to fate, thus bringing the two into harmony, he puts his fate on a firm footing. These words contain hints about fostering of life as handed on by oral tradition in the secret teachings of Chinese yoga. /IChing
AC/ I do not want to be comfortable, or even to prolong life; I prefer to move constantly from galaxy to galaxy, from one incarnation to another. Such is my intimate individual Will./AC
AC/ Every man and every woman is a star /AC
AC/ Fight! Fight like gentlemen, without malice, because fighting is the best game in the world, and love the second best! Don t slander your enemy, as the newspapers would have you do; just kill him, and then bury him with honor. Don t keep crying Foul like a fifth-rate pugilist. Don t boast! Don t squeal! If you re down get up and hit him again! Fights of that sort make fast friends. /AC
AC/ The Elder Brother within us, the Silent Self, must slay the younger brother, the conscious self, and he must be raised again incorruptible./AC
BIBLE/ "Also the Holy One came upon me, and I beheld a white swan floating in the blue. Between its wings I sate, and the aeons fled away. Then the swan flew and dived and soared, yet no whither we went. A little crazy boy that rode with me spoke unto the swan, and said: Who art thou that dost float and fly and dive and soar in the inane? Behold, these many aeons have passed; whence camest thou? Whither wilt thou go? And laughing I chid him, saying: No whence! No whither! The swan being silent, he answered: Then, if with no goal, why this eternal journey? And I laid my head against the Head of the Swan, and laughed, saying: Is there not joy ineffable in this aimless winging? Is there not weariness and impatience for who would attain to some goal? And the swan was ever silent. Ah! but we floated in the infinite Abyss. Joy! Joy! White swan, bear thou ever me up between thy wings!" /BIBLE
ICHING/ When an individual draws this oracle, it means that success will come to him from the primal depths of the universe and that everything depends upon his seeking his happiness and that of others in one way only, that is, by perseverance in what is right. /ICHING
ICHING/ For wherever conscious purpose is to be seen, there the truth and innocence of nature have been lost. Nature that is not directed by the spirit is not true but degenerate nature./ICHING
ICHING/ By devotion to this divine spirit within himself, he attains an unsullied innocence that leads him to do right with instinctive sureness and without any ulterior thought of reward and personal advantage. This instinctive certainty brings about supreme success and 'furthers through perseverance"/ICHING
ONCE WE DO THIS, WE OCCUPY THE RANK OF A MAGUS.
some stats from a friends email:
stats/ There are at least two people in this world that you would die for. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. You mean the world to someone. You are special and unique. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. Even when you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks. And always remember.... when life hands you Lemons, ask for tequila and salt and call me over! /stats
Do what thou wilt shall be the only law.
Love under will
