Biography Born Hans Gebser in Posen in Imperial Germany (now Poland), he left Germany in 1929, living for a time in Italy and then in France. When the Spanish Civil War began, he moved to Paris. Late in life, Gebser travelled widely in India, the Far East, and the Americas, and wrote half a dozen more books. Gebser died in Wabern bei Bern on May 14, 1973 "with a soft and knowing smile."

Transcendental Meditation technique The Transcendental Meditation technique is a specific form of mantra meditation developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It is often referred to as Transcendental Meditation, or simply TM. The meditation practice involves the use of a mantra and is practiced for 15–20 minutes twice per day while sitting with one's eyes closed. It is reported to be one of the most-widely practiced, and among the most widely researched meditation techniques, with over 340 peer-reviewed studies published. Beginning in 1965, the Transcendental Meditation technique has been incorporated into selected schools, universities, corporations, and prison programs in the U.S.A., Latin America, Europe, and India. Practice Mantra Selection The Maharishi is reported to have standardized and "mechanized" the mantra selection process by using a specific set of mantras and making the selection process "foolproof".

Auroville Auroville (City of Dawn) is an experimental township in Viluppuram district in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, near Puducherry in South India. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (also known as "The Mother") and designed by architect Roger Anger. As stated in Alfassa's first public message about the township, "Auroville is meant to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity." History Auroville was founded as a project of the Sri Aurobindo Society on Wednesday 28 February 1968 by Mirra Alfassa, "The Mother". In the inauguration ceremony attended by delegates of 124 nations on 28 February 1968, Mother gave Auroville its 4-point Charter setting forth her vision of Integral living: Auroville belongs to nobody in particular.

The Path of Energy Energy Awareness in the Paradigm Shift Author: Synthia Andrews, PhD The world is changing. Old forms are being challenged and new directions are needed across all spectrums of life; economically, socially, politically, ecologically and spiritually. When many structures of culture are called to change simultaneously, a paradigm shift is underway; a change in the way we see the world and our place within it. This shift has been predicted since ancient times by many different cultures and traditions. Change is never easy and the challenges we face are great. Everything we see, feel and hear is a vibration within a sea of energy from which the circumstances and events of life unfold. The body, both physically and energetically, is the vehicle for our consciousness; the means for us to explore reality. Changes in consciousness occur with a corresponding change in frequency. A change in consciousness also precipitates a change in perceptive ability. Credit www.theinnerspace.net
Analysis of Evangelion Characters According to the Sephiroth Tree of Life Introduction It is my strong belief that Neon Genesis Evangelion is strongly influenced by the Kabbalah and the Sephiroth Tree of Life. Much has been written about the Kabbalistic symbolism in Evangelion, but I have found that Director Anno's messages run deeper than that. In fact, a closer analysis of the stages in the Tree of Life indicates that each main character in Evangelion parallels a single sephira. Each shows all the virtues, vices, illusions and obligations of their parallel sephira on the Tree of Life, and each either succeeds or fails to achieve fulfillment based on that sephira. Ultimately, Director Anno may be expressing his view of life through these impersonified sephiroth stages. And it is my intention here to discover such connections. The reader is strongly urged to first read through this summary of the Sephiroth Tree and Colin Low's Notes on Kabbalah. Comments and suggestions are most welcome.

Colors and Color Healing Everything is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color. We are drawn to the colors needed to create balance in our lives, the goal in all healing. Colors attract ... certain clothing and accessories, colors in our homes, and even the foods we eat. Colors are frequency wavelengths that we conect with based on grid (matrix) attraction. Primary colors following a spectrum called ROYGBIV or the rainbow spectrum. Colors and Frequenices Red Red is any of a number of similar colors evoked by light consisting predominantly of the longest wavelengths of light discernible by the human eye, in the wavelength range of roughly 625-740 nm. In human color psychology, red is associated with heat, energy and blood, and emotions that "stir the blood", including anger, passion, and love. One common use of red as an additive primary color is in the RGB color model. Etymology and Definitions The word red comes from the Old English read. Orange
The Nature Of Consciousness The legacy lives on at alanwatts.com I find it a little difficult to say what the subject matter of this seminar is going to be, because it's too fundamental to give it a title. I'm going to talk about what there is. And these basic ideas I call myth, not using the word 'myth' to mean simply something untrue, but to use the word 'myth' in a more powerful sense. So in the same way, we use these sort of images to try and make sense of the world, and we at present are living under the influence of two very powerful images, which are, in the present state of scientific knowledge, inadequate, and one of the major problems today are to find an adequate, satisfying image of the world. All right, now--the two images which we have been working under for 2000 years and maybe more are what I would call two models of the universe, and the first is called the ceramic model, and the second the fully automatic model. A Protestant church is a little different.
Occult Lessons Back To Treatise On OOBE Treatise On OOBE - Part 3 Projection Training To trigger the projection of the Astral body, while fully conscious, there are four major requirements: Relaxing your body 100% while staying awake. Concentrating 100% on what you are doing. Together, these four things will trigger an OOBE. Below are exercises that will teach how to relax the body, concentrate, clear the mind, raise energy, stimulate the chakras and enter the trance state. Calming The Mind Relaxation You must learn and master, a full body relaxation exercise. Sit, or lie down, and relax. Note: Deep physical relaxation is the key to bringing on the trance state, i.e., deep relaxation CAUSES the trance state. Contemplation When you begin meditation, you will be plagued with thoughts from your surface mind, which acts like a huge Memo pad. Before you attempt to clear your mind, with the breath awareness exercise below, it is wise to deal with these surface thoughts by the act of contemplating them. For example:

Chakras Chakras Chakra means Wheel in Sanskrit. Consciousness and energy move from one frequency to another in spiraling fashion. The body has energy centers that look like spinning wheels and are called Chakras. They allow energy to flow from one part of the body to another. As with all things in our reality, they are linked to sound, light and color. To heal, is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance then understand the nature of creation and your purpose in it. It's all in motion in the alchemy of time.

Yellowstone National Park Aerial view, 3D computer generated image Yellowstone National Park (Arapaho: Henihco'oo or Héetíhco'oo) is a national park located primarily in the U.S. state of Wyoming, although it also extends into Montana and Idaho. It was established by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872. Yellowstone, widely held to be the first national park in the world, is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser, one of the most popular features in the park. It has many types of ecosystems, but the subalpine forest is most abundant. It is part of the South Central Rockies forests ecoregion. Native Americans have lived in the Yellowstone region for at least 11,000 years. The region was bypassed during the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the early 19th century.
