Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” and The Path of Kundalini

From the age of 12, I was drawn, like a moth to a flame, to the current of Led Zeppelin. Except that, the flame was my own dragon energy (although I didn’t know it at the time). Enchanted by the cellular memories triggered by the music, my body led me on a 36 year journey through the Left and Right hand paths of occult mysticism. Each step was led by the muse of the music toward an initiation and release of kundalini energy.[…]

Your Inner Child IS Your Soul

Contrary to the tradition of metaphysics, my journey yielded the realization that my inner child is my soul and that the spiritual story is an archetype pointing to the life cycle of a human being. Ascension = Wisdom of old age Journey = One’s life experience Past lives = One’s childhood According to historical records, the further back you go in history the worse the child abuse gets. In ancient Greek and Roman culture, the abandonment of children, most typically through[…]

The Infinite Impossibilities of the Spiritual Mind

When I was a Christian I thought I had an open mind and that the rest of the world was deceived. When I graduated into New Age spirituality, I thought I found the fountainhead of infinite possibilities. But when I took the “Infinite Possibilities” doctrine literally by exploring atheism, naturalism, skepticism and science, I fumbled upon an unexpected discovery. I learned that the New Ageism of spiritual belief looked and sounded just like the Christian duck. Baffled by this quandary, I[…]

The Baffling Unexplainable Mystery of Spiritual Love

For many humans, love is a part of everyday life. It is an unavoidable feeling experienced between close friends, family members and lovers. For adventurers, love for nature and the universe can take on more expansive descriptions such as “breath-taking” or “awe-inspiring”. Even mystics use words such as “intoxicating” or “transcendent” usually leading to the conclusion of “speechlessness” when they surrender to a sense of reverie in silence. They leave the explanations at the door because they have realized the[…]

The Conditions of Unconditional Love

I have stated in another article that unconditional love is the domain of parent/child relations, and because of that, has no place being applied to adult to adult. So in this article I will expand on why I believe this to be true. First of all, unconditional love applied to adults is impossible. No matter how hard you try to unconditionally love another adult, chances are, they are going to do or say something you are not going to unconditionally love,[…]

Man the Animal, Child Abuse and Artificial Intelligence

Man is indeed just another animal, but because he has deluded himself to believe that God has given him a soul that sets him above mere animals, or that his intellectual development has allowed him to transcend animality, he has lost touch with his true nature. In trying desperately to be what he foolishly believes himself to be, a non animal, he simply becomes a broken animal that is driven to aberrant, and vicious behavior. This viciousness escalates to ever[…]

Knowledge Bullying & Yoga Snobbery

Do you know someone who has made “knowing stuff” their dogma? Rather than using knowledge to inform, educate and empower, they bully their prey into submission? The aim being to force understanding through demeaning? Sometimes this can work as a wake up call but it usually blocks any further communication (even though the Zen stick does have its moments it requires great discernment, experience and skill). But don’t get this confused with exasperation—we’ve all been there, sometimes great patience is[…]

The Sorcery of the Word “Family”

I would like to kick off this post with the words of Jesus: For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. – Luke 12:49-53 It appears to me that Jesus was on to something a few thousand years ago. Was he aware of child abuse? Was he trying[…]

In Search of the Banana Self (Enlightenment)

The search for enlightenment could be likened to being a banana. Imagine if you were a banana but for some reason you didn’t believe you were a banana possibly due to inherited beliefs or assumed insufficiency due to psychological and physical abuse. Now consider, due to your banananess being suppressed, that you might begin to ACT like a banana. If dissociation runs deep you may set out on the path of bananahood. You might collect pictures of bananas, wear banana[…]

Lying and the Law of Attraction

In this post I will make the distinction between the Law of Attraction and the term I use—Bio-Magic. The Law of Attraction is based on thought—it is a “something for nothing” form of magical thinking. It promotes faith, belief and hope, like a carrot dangling from a stick while the whip cracks behind the eager primate in the form of a word called LACK. It offers EVERYTHING and delivers very little. It disappoints, confuses and deludes its followers into blindly attaching[…]
