I Vow Not to Burn Out. What is Tantra? A Primer on Tantric Meditation – OmStars. Tantra is as misunderstood in the West, where it’s become synonymous with sexual rituals, as in the East, where it’s considered magic alchemy.
But Tantra is actually a vast science that encompasses wisdom from Ayurvedic medicine, Samkhya/Yoga philosophy, Vedanta, Jyotish astrology and spiritual practices using yantras and mantras.

The first requirement is an absolutely clean mind which knows no duality and has feelings of sameness for everyone. This "sameness" means you do not over or under-express love for any one person in particular, nor should you possess animosity against any person. If you do not possess this sense of feeling sameness towards everyone, your efforts to achieve the Truth and Absolute in meditation will be totally wasted and will go unrewarded, like carrying water in a wicker basket to nowhere.
In meditation there is no room for coarse feelings. Kundalini Awakening - Kundalini Awakens. #4: Awakening the Kundalini energy: After one is well established in the ability to balance the Prana between Ida and Pingala (section #2), and causing it to flow in Sushumna (section #3), the resulting sense of peace and joy is the foundation for the next step, which is awakening the Kundalini itself.
Kundalini Awakening is for all: Regardless of what religious, spiritual, or meditation tradition one follows, the awakening of this Kundalini energy, by whatever name you call it, is a most innate and essential part of spiritual advancement, unfoldment, or realization.

Christian Astrophysicist Offers Brilliant Reply to Richard Dawkins’ Criticism of Intelligent Design – Faithwire. “After four weeks, not only did they fail to produce a single word of the English language, they got bored and started defecating on the keyboards.”
That was the end result of the infamous test of the ‘Infinite Monkey Theorem.’ The theory, a favorite of atheist author Richard Dawkins, attempts to explain how an incredibly fine-tuned universe such as ours could have spontaneously appeared from nothing through an unguided process. Dawkins has referenced the theory in books and on stage. You’ll end up going down quite the rabbit hole if you want a further explanation on the theory— if you’d like to find out more, go here.

MYTHOS. Sadhana. Tom Kenyon. Teilhard-de-chardin. Teilhard de Chardin Have Yourself a Teilhard Kind of Christmas For several weeks, through the eyes of 21st Century theologians, we have been gazing into the mind, heart, and mystical, poetic soul of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
Brilliant scientist, creative thinker, man of faith, Teilhard brings into harmony recent discoveries about an evolving universe and his faith in the Christic presence at the heart of it all. We have already seen that for Teilhard the concept of original sin, committed by our first parents in a lost garden of paradise, was incompatible with the reality of an evolving universe where everything is moving into fullness of being, including God.
