Spirituality and Religion:

The Perpetual  Raising

 

PART 2 

 Every cubic inch of the body constantly radiates our internal state of being to the environment.  In return, each one also unceasingly receives psychic inputs, (feelings, thoughts, Intentions, the general state of consciousness of others, etc.) from around the world.  This is an automatic process that continues among most modern persons on an unconscious level. But when this natural phenomena becomes a conscious process, and even an Intentional one, it is then that we begin to realize the immense scope of good we can do for the world, in the quietude of meditation/prayer.  Such facts lend profound meaning to the ancient saying, “The Master does nothing and yet, leaves nothing undone”. 

When love for instance is focused and radiated body-wide,  each of the Intent elements, (cubic inches) of the body are immediately transformed and reoriented to some degree.  In like fashion, the surrounding energy, awareness and Intent in the environment is also transformed and reoriented.  To hold a loving state within, is to manifest love in those with whom we have contact, and also in the very atmosphere we breathe. Love, like all other states of consciousness, is automatically radiated outward from us to some extent, whenever it resides within.  But when we actually Intend love and other useful states, to be manifest in the environment to a greater and greater degree, it is then that we are fulfilling the Plan of the spiritual Masters of all time. 

We cannot avoid the fact that our inner states of being impact all other bodies and minds upon the globe continuously. This is why it is necessary for every person to realize that, since they constantly render effects on the world with their own inner state, it is most appropriate to hold only those inner states of being we wish to have manifest in society.  One might call this “the golden rule of psychic effect”. We make a daily contribution to world affairs at the most profound levels of existence, without ever stepping foot outside the front door.  When we become aware of this fact of natural law and how it operates, a choice must then be made.  Every person must choose how they will influence the world and everyone in it, according to what inner state of consciousness they cultivate on a daily basis.  Self and world consciousness can be effectively raised, through the spiritual use of such psychic knowledge.

 Our bodies are the spiritual conduits for our souls, to the physical plane.  For this reason we are all “channels” to the spirit world.  It is therefore very desirable to cultivate a physical body that has a unified spiritual Intention, in each cell and cell group.  Such a body is one that is spiritually powerful, which can render far-reaching, enlightening effects for the world and everyone in it.  Our bodies are our “spiritual antennas”.  They radiate the soulic and Divine signal of evolutionary, consciousness-raising Intent.

 When two or more persons employ a spiritual focus together, especially via the Intent of good will and the creation of mutual benefits, a progressive group mind is thus formed between them. This is analogous to two cells becoming one organism, for the duration of a meditation or prayer.  When more people join in to raise the mutual state of consciousness, (in greater love, clarity, energy etc.) they become analogous to a multi-cellular being of greater and greater capability, as each new person joins the collective Intention. Individuals are then taking advantage of the group mind principle of nature, just as our own bodies do. 

Group minds based upon spiritual Intent, render progressive influences on the consciousness of each participant. Like any other body of organized individuals, each participant may draw upon the greater ability and strength of the collective.  Each meditator thus joined in fact, automatically receives great psychic benefits in the form of expanded love, clarity, energy and Divine connection.  The projected love of many individuals becomes not only additive, but exponentially greater in mutual benefit.  As meditators Intend spiritual upliftment for one another, they establish a reciprocating field of energy, (area of effect) which surrounds the group like an aura.  As group consciousness rises, the benefits for each participant become more and more profound.  Likewise, the higher the consciousness of each participant, the more spiritual benefit will be rendered for the group of which they have become a part. 

Participation in a spiritually progressive group mind, the meditator will note, by no means implies any loss of individual autonomy.  It is instead an enhancement of every individual in the most profound sense.  The best qualities of all participants are manifest through each and every meditator. This Intentionally created group mind, represents a psychic reciprocation that can boost the participants indefinately, causing a “spiritual pooling of resources” and a mutuality of love, clarity, and vitality.  A spiritually-based group mind also creates a very potent “spiritual broadcasting” to the world at large.  Groups may take advantage of these principles of natural law, to psychically broadcast their spiritual consciousness around the globe.  These facts make such activities as global peace, and “World Light” meditations, more effective than is generally realized.   Such groups may employ their group mind force to Intentionally raise the state of world consciousness without potential limit, as briefly described hereafter…

 The cells, tissues and organs of the body possess consciousness, and these transmit psychic impulses into the unified field that surrounds us.  They do this most effectively through the Energy centers of the body, known in ancient Vedic texts as the chakras.  The chakras are our major input/output portals, or doorways to our psychic environment, and to other people within that environment.  A chakras’ effects extend multi-dimensionally from the physical plane, all the way to the spiritual plane of the soul, (and beyond).  Through these energy centers we feel the emotions of others, receive their thoughts and quite often know their Intentions.  Anyone who has ever attended a sporting event, music concert, motivated prayer group, seen a riot, or enthusiastic theater/movie event, has experienced blatant examples of this truth.  Sensations in the form of major surges of emotional energy, from any similarly-focused crowd of people, is a sure example of dynamic group mind action. The chakras of the body/mind/soul we each possess, allow such events to occur most easily.   The opportunity exists for each of us to Intentionally use that enormous psychic potential of group mind action, for the greatest benefit of every living being on our planet.

  Each chakra is a major spiritual pathway for the manifestation of our Intent, awareness and energy.  They connect us to the people we are familiar with most intensely, and to a lesser extent the rest of the world.  Never the less, our World Mind connections are quite strong, and it is through the chakras that we constantly experience something analogous to a “background feeling” on a psychic basis.  This background feeling is the radiated product of the combined Intentions and emotional states, of all people on this planet.  Because we are all One, we are all continuously effecting each other.  For this reason we must recognize the global nature of human society at the most fundamental level of life, (consciousness).  In truth, our essential Unity necessitates that we treat all human beings as brothers and sisters in God/Nature.  They are a part of our very selves, as fellow cells in the body of God.  Our love for humanity is by necessity, very much a love for an extension of ourselves and vice versa.

  The chakras are generally acknowledged to be seven in number, and these are centered along the spine.  A chakra is the sum total product of the Intent elements, (each cubic inch of cell tissue) which compose that region of the body.  The fourth or heart chakra for instance, is contributed to by each Intent element within the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and chest.  The first or root chakra at the base of the spine, is contributed to by each cubic inch of the feet, ankles, calves thighs, hips and sexual organs.  The third chakra of the stomach area is composed of that region of the spine, the stomach, the diaphragm, (partially) and the intestines, (partially). All of the other chakras are similarly composed, as indicated by the following table;

  It is important to maintain a broad focus throughout the body, when in meditation and/or prayer. Each of the small feeling/Intent elements of every chakra region, has bearing upon our overall state of consciousness.  The more cell groups in the body we liberate through spiritual Intentions, the more our physical form will become the ideal instrument for our souls, and for effective daily living. The same is true at the next order of magnitude, at the human social level.  The more individual people who are liberated through the application of spiritual Intentions, the more the World Mind will be the ideal instrument for God, in daily social interactions.

To meditate on a given region of the body, and to Intend the improvement of that area, (via any or all of the six elements of consciousness expansion above) increases the effectiveness of that chakras’ abilities, as a psychic input/output portal to the world.  To “purify” a chakra is to make each of its member Intent elements, (cubic inches of tissue) act as a fully cooperating, unified whole.  The statement, “fully cooperating cell groups” in this context, implies that all of the Intent elements within a chakra are completely aligned in purpose, and are therefore of like vibration, clarity, expansion, right alignment, and/or energy-gaining/sending potential.  When they are so aligned, the psychic power of the chakra is dramatically increased, especially when the practitioner Intends a body-wide alignment of the Intent elements within, for the purpose of spiritual gain.  The best indication of a chakra being unified and purified, is when all of the subtle feelings in that region of the body are uniformly the same, (in a state of love or joy for instance).  Ideally, it is extremely useful to unify and purify all of the feelings/Intent elements body-wide.  It is recommended that the beginning meditator focus upon one area of the body at a time, to accomplish a transformation of the Intent within each cellular region.  A meditative focus upon one body region/chakra at a time, is often easier for the beginning practitioner. These things may be initiated in meditation, by using the following “Chakra Meditation”.

  

The Chakra Meditation   

           Sit or lie comfortably, and immediately begin focusing on the feelings throughout the body.  Those new to this practice may begin by focusing upon a very small area of the body, such as the tip of the right index finger.  Be carefully aware of every subtle detail of feeling in this area. Allow awareness to spread to the entire finger, then the hand, arm, both arms, chest, torso, head, legs and feet, (not necessarily in that order). Do not avoid any pain, fear or other unpleasantness found anywhere in the body. [Such feelings are usually the result of Intentions which inhibit personal growth, and these can be “reprogrammed”. Fear can be replaced by love, confusion by clarity, and pain by vibrant energy/positivity.]

  As thoughts inevitably run though the mind, simply relax, and return again and again to a feeling-awareness focus, even if this means doing so a hundred times every minute.  Chronic, rampant, seemingly unstoppable thoughts in the mind, are a symptom of stored stress in ones’ being.  As the practice of meditation proceeds, stress is released, and the tendency of thoughts to intrude upon this process will gradually diminish.  Be patient and don’t let the simplicity of this method of meditation deceive you.  Let your awareness travel freely from one area of the body to the next, as it will be inclined to do. Feel every subtle inner detail. Areas of particular stress or activity will attract your awareness, and hold it for longer periods than the rest of the body.  Allow this to happen, as it is a function of natural self-healing processes and energy body activity.  Don’t be concerned or irritated by intruding thoughts, just continue to return to a feeling/awareness-oriented focus within the body, in a relaxed manner.

  One particularly notable value of the above meditational practice, is that is can be done any time during the day, at work, at home or in conjunction with any other activity.  It can be done for as little as 5-30 seconds at a time, (as daily inner awareness) and it will still render cumulative benefits, though these are usually more pronounced when the eyes are closed, and the body still. It is recommended that the Chakra Meditation, (or others like it) be performed daily just before going to sleep at night, and before arising in the morning, for 20-30 minutes at a time.  Daily inner awareness and meditation compliment each others’ effectiveness, acting to improve health, reduce stress, increase psychic sensitivity, clarity and the capacity for love, manifest intelligence and wisdom.

As the meditator becomes increasingly aware of their own inner state of being through meditation, they are also enabled to take greater notice of their psychic environment.  The “mood” or “atmosphere” of the workplace is made clearly perceptable to them. The underlying motives and feelings of persons as well as groups, become more and more obvious. Even more importantly, the meditator gains greater awareness of their own patterns of feeling and thought, as well as the Intentions which underlie them.  That which is known can be easily addressed, whereas that which is unknown is difficult to change.  Self knowledge implies the capacity for self change.  The self-aware individual discovers that the task of building a more evolved self, is often easier than expected.  They are thus enabled to build a more evolved world with others in the process.

By applying the Chakra Meditation daily, (or others like it) we become increasingly aware of the subtle feelings/Intents in the body, as they exist in each cubic inch of our physiology.  This practice then allows the meditator to begin to transform the Intentions held in the body as a residue of past experiences, to ones that are progressively more evolved.  Long held fear anywhere in the body, such as in the stomach, (third chakra) or the heart, (fourth chakra) can be transformed to love.  Confusion and a scattered focus in the region of the forehead, (sixth chakra) can be turned into greater and greater clarity.  A lack of energy in the hips/lower spine, (first chakra) can be made into a state of high vitality. All of these changes of cellular memory and Intent can be transformed in such a manner.  The meditator may do this by Intending changes to come about, by employing the following four steps;

 

 THE EMPLOYMENT OF INTENT

(for rendering internal change)

1)  Be aware of your current state of body/mind, (this is accomplished through meditation).

2)  Gain familiarity with that which is to be Intended, (such as a higher love and clarity) and the Intent to be acted upon is crystallized.

3)  The desired state is held steady in the mind, (for at least 5 minutes). Visualize and feel this state as if it already exists, until the body/mind shifts into it.

4)   The desired state is “held in place” throughout the body, (or a given chakra).  This new state is maintained by treating it as the new reality of the self on a permanent basis.

Subsequent applications of the above four-step process render cumulative results.  Be persistent!

By employing such techniques as the Chakra Meditation,  we are made aware of the fact that the body is a collection of cellular group minds.  Each of these possesses Intent, Awareness and Energy. Every cell group in the body therefore has a state of consciousness which it holds.  It may also be accurately said, that every Intent element or cubic inch of our tissue holds a certain “state of mind”, composed of fear, clarity, pleasure, pain, love, confusion or bliss, or some combination thereof.  During meditation we are given the opportunity to become aware of these Intent elements and their subtle details.  The meditator will notice that every subtle feeling in the body is an indicator of a corresponding Intent underlying it. They will also notice that the chakras are the most intense feeling/awareness centers of the body, and that each chakra is composed of smaller regions of feeling/awareness areas.   The reason this is important information for the meditator to gain, is that all of these Intent elements can be transformed at will, once they are known through meditation.  This is a part of what it means to “gain self knowledge”.  The feelings in the body and their corresponding Intentions, are a reflection of our overall mental and spiritual focus.  These are stored in the body as a form of cellular memory and ongoing activity. 

When we meditate then, we become aware of many subtle feelings and Intentions that are housed in our tissues.  In order to expand our consciousness, it is very useful to transform these stored Intentions/memories to ones that are spiritually progressive.  Of particular importance is the seeking out of all fear housed in the cells, through meditation.  So instead of avoiding fear and its unpleasantness, seek it out as a hunter stalks their prey. Once it is found anywhere in the body, fear can be transformed into love or clarity by using the “four steps in the manifestation of Intent” above.  If fear is found in the fourth chakra, (heart) for instance, step one of  “Being aware of your current state of body/mind” in this area is accomplished.  Step two of, “Gain familiarity with that which is to be Intended” is accomplished when we focus on the love we want to experience there.  Step three, “The desired state is held steady in the mind is achieved when we stay focused on the love that is replacing the fear within.  Feel fear be dissolved by love by gradual degrees, until it is completely replaced on a permanent basis.  Then treat this inner change as your new permanent reality.  In doing this you have accomplished step four above, or, “The desired state is “held in place” throughout the body, (or a given chakra).  This is a brief example of employing Intent for internal change. 

Any area of the body may in this way be transformed, and its underlying Intent changed.  This will aid in the improvement of health, mental clarity and the raising of overall consciousness.  The more areas of the body we convert from fear to love, the more our consciousness will soar.  The same is true of the World Mind in which we live, because we are analogous to cells within the body of humanity/the Earth.

The spiritual practitioner may rightly consider these inner transformations, as a preparation for greater Mastery.  They prepare us for the creation of the needed outer transformations, in the World Mind of humanity.
