Bad Boy Billionaires of India released on Netflix recently. Insightful...

They all have a lot in common but seems the one thing that precipitated their downfall was the desire to go global—to be the biggest and best in the world. Like world domination... I guess that’s never a good goal to have.
Ego 🤯 💣 💥


This is discussed in the latest Q&A


Starting at 11.07 min

Several times Said that God is a Love accumulator
but how can that correspond with the "nothing_ness"

A jeeva approaching the Fibonacci Center, is really is what S/He. remembers
forgetting . . . . non-sense (part of illusinoir being)

That forgetting becomes bigger and bigger part
So, in that center is only what is worth to be


I typed the above before having seen the
Purpose of life chapter
Sad story, . . . really
You found that nice Brian?

You just have no say in this accumulation of Love

You invented it
You fine_tuned it
including your actual ignorance about it
but be calm,
the result is ten thousand Lovers and you
are afraid that eternity passes much to fast

BabaJi can't say that - Disciples faint already
by hearing the word 'butt', but Love is
helping an old cross the street to start with



Donald Trump as POTUS

Brian You didn't t place my last one

Like Lucifer U can't stand you have to deliver yourself

Doing this is narcotic like trump



Wabi sabi: imperfection
Everything temporal is. imperfect

Only the.💥. Anahabad. Shabd. Sound Frequency. 💥. is eternal and we can Love it and BE IT


Pastor Carl! Say it ain't so!


The state of nothingness and nonbeing happens when the mind is inactive. It’s a state of supreme tranquility and bliss. It’s different from what we think of as happiness.

The mind never stops. It’s always in some sort of active form. It’s associated with air but is easier to understand if you think of it like water. It’s always flowing. All we can do is direct the mind. We can still the mind or repeat a mantra or focus our attention on specific things which we call thoughts. And “thoughts” are funny things because they have no beginning and no end—they’re just one long continuous stream. However, we tend to look at a section of the stream and call it a thought.

Past the mind there is no direction, no flow, nothing to still. There’s just the part of us that’s really real. And at that stage all the weight of this duality is lifted. That’s why it’s blissful.

It can enjoy the Shabd next go for it

Water is nice c q blood
It connects to the Shabd and has memory
therefore we ( The Willing ) can "eventually" remember that we are pure Shabd , totally
There exists no better proposition or axioma s

WE developed it when still THE Divine



I feel like I need a cipher to understand your messages.

Yes, water has memory (that much I got out of it). Every particle in this world has memory—isn’t that fascinating. :)

Only in time can memory exist. Past, present, future are all “here”. That’s why the future isn’t destiny—the future has already happened. (Just food for thought...)

I just finished watching Togo. I’ve never cried so much at a movie in my life.


That’s why the future isn’t destiny—the future has already happened. (Just food for thought...)

We might say / think :
All this ctreation
is a way "during time" to be for 99,9% in Orgasme
HIS/HER pratiki side
The Purusha side then is to relax from all that Arousal

Let's react on coming insults to the Almighty because so much sadness we see
Karma is only for pussing a jeeva Upwards when nothing else can do
It's no revenge - Justice without satisfaction they say
Brian wrote about it


And WE did that
Who else could? . . ?
We are Him/Her IN DISGUISE



I don’t know if I agree with you or not because you write in such an abstract way. I think I get what you are trying to say... but not 100% sure that I do. 🧐

The numbers just don’t add up...


WHAT is the US doing to have such high COVID cases compared to every other country? And HOW are China’s numbers so low??? Theoretically we should all be practicing whatever it is that China is doing when you look at these numbers. It’s as if they have it completely under control. But it makes no sense. It makes no sense at all...


That is because we can only have intuition!

Reflecting on the worg 'Eternal' , . . it is a long time
But not for the One who spoke one word and there was time

I axiomad : HE might have pauses too

What is sure is : YOU ARE THAT ONE
Read JapJI : You are all That

me with some super help


Brans book
That's what emptiness is all about. The emptiness of inherent existence

This is what Brahm, ParaBrahm
will grant you with their trap and if you succeed with ascese, . . .
next waiting eons and universes untill he will succeed passing Sunna

By contrast The Anahabat Delicious and Joyous Sweet Music is here and now and eternal and we can BE IT


"God" "Soul" "Spirit" "Heaven" These sorts of words have meaning only in the sense that people use them in sentences that sound meaningful, but actually lack any substance grounded in reality.

If you haven't these intuitions
You still can Try Music

@ Sonia

Thank you for putting up the link to this video.

Although it is difficult these days to listen to this type of information, I managed to do so to the very end. It also brought tears to my at the very end; tears I mentally cannot understand or explain ... probably resonation within the man's voice ... anyway.

It confirms the idea I have about the birth of many things spiritual.
- there is a person that has an inner experience
- overwhelmed by that experience he speaks up to those around.
- those around hearing what he says are overwhelmed too and are eager to believe each and every word.
- the idea arises on both side to have the same experience
- techniques are developed to manipulate the brain trying to bring these experiences to them.
- due to the sort of experience all are convince of an supra reality of the experience.
- so the many techniques are developed, and this time it is called sacred acoustics.

There is something however that makes me ponder again and again and is best explained with the example of how the Hebrews of yore that came to believe that there is a god and that this god gave them a piece of land, the now state of Israel and that they are gong to live in that land of milk and honey as an chosen people.

Given the fact that people do have these kind of experiences, all over the place and at all time during history, there is no reason to thing that the narrative is incorrect. There must have been an man that had this experience of divine command ... the problem however is, that the same god never spoke to the spiritual and worldly elders of all the other tribes in those days around the world, telling them about his promises and gift to the Hebrews.

This, once of a time occurrence to just ONE person, makes it doubtful that these claims are made by a cause beyond their own brain and .... the existence of an personal over-consciousness.

I do also believe the claims this doctor makes that he can recreate the state he was in by using this or that techniques but I do doubt if others are capable of doing so. What explains the the often heard complaint from people having meditated for decades without any result

Just my personal opinion.


Just saw that 777 had posted the link .. so thanks to him.

The result of the fact that some mystics are remembered and others not, and some demagogues were lifted on the shield of war , these days Mr. Trump, and others not as to do with the NEEDS of the people listening to hem,...who HEAR what they SAY ...and experience it as the ultimate solution for their otherwise unsolvable problems of life.

As far as I know their is no exception to that rule.

So, needs of the masses are a prerequisite, a sine qua non, for the words of demagogues, worldly and spiritual to be heard and accepted.

Like there would be no bakers or bakeries without the need of the masses for others to bake their bread.

Hi um,

Yes, I reposted it hoping more people would watch it. I just viewed it last night for the first time and I can’t explain exactly why, but it had a profound effect on me in that it helped me examine my own behavior and attitudes. In my mind I’m always analyzing what people say and calculating what I think they are right or wrong about and then I arrogantly proceed to “correct” them. Even when I try to do it in a positive way, the point is words aren’t as powerful as thoughts. If we stop being critical in our minds towards others and stop dissecting every single word they say, it’s easier to have empathy and love. There’s really no need to criticize or correct everything you disagree with. People express themselves and how you respond to them is what heals or harms that relationship. I try not to hurt people but I find I am much quicker to criticize and be critical of those closest to me and ironically those I care about most—the people in my “soul group”. There are lessons we have to learn from certain people in our lives. Most of these lessons have to do with the simple fact that we need to love and respect everyone—especially those who challenge us the most.

I mean, isn’t that what life is about? Realizing “God” in everyone? If we can’t recognize that power in the people around us then how will we ever recognize it in ourselves. If we think we are truly separate from others or more special and don’t recognize the “God” in others then our faith is sort of a lie, right?

It made me wonder why every religious/spiritual org has conditions for “being saved, getting to heaven”. They all say you have to do it their way and that you’re lost or somehow separate from Love if you don’t. For a very long time now religious and spiritual organizations have been saying that being a loving person and loving others isn’t good enough. I’m seriously wondering when this line of thinking started. Is it this type of thinking that started the Iron Age? I don’t know... But how can you say you love “God” or believe that you are spiritual if you don’t recognize that same power is equally present in all of us? By seeing it in others you help them see it in themselves.

Anyway, for some reason his experience made me realize that I’m very critical in my thinking. Discernment is a good thing but we all have our own experiences and shouldn’t feel threatened by the fact that others experience spirituality differently. Who am I to say they’re right or wrong? More than anything I need to stop worrying as much about controlling my behavior and start really worrying about or focusing on controlling my thoughts because it’s our thoughts that prompt us to behave the way we do. And even if we don’t express our thoughts they still create an energy that other people pick up on either consciously or subconsciously.

No two satsangis or people from other spiritual groups... or even people who are “spiritually independent” have the same experiences inside. Similar maybe but not the same. If everything in the causal and astral and physical realms are truly “unreal” (in varying degrees) then how can we expect that there is only one way to experience the divine?

My first description

I will give it another try :-)

Whatever exist is [a] an unique variation [Sonia] of [b] the same, human, women etc.

The path leading up to that experience cannot but be the same for all human beings, .... IF ..... if that experience is to be had [a] by humans and [b] inside humans.

Walking the same path leading up to having the experience is done in an individual, unique way. Having had the experience, the experience itself can be perceived, processed and expressed by every individual in a different way.

Oh bummer! I’ve had weird tech problems this week too... time to clean up my laptop. :-/

I sent the link to my mother-in-law to watch along with a link to another video on the topic of NDEs, OBEs, childhood past life memories. Apparently a lot of research as been done on childhood past life memories over the past 50+ years at University of Virginia and other places because it’s so common
(I wasn’t even aware it was a thing). They discussed other phenomena associated with dying as well. It was hosted by John Cleese. He had a panel of doctors who shared their research and answered questions. Fascinating stuff.

Anyway she said she’s looking forward to dying now (she’s 83). 😄

Here’s the link (it’s long but you can watch it in segments). https://youtu.be/4RGizqsLumo

@ Sonia

Another fund raising video. :-) The end was interesting as it disclosed their purposes in terms of finding scientific proof for an afterlife of some sorts / an alternative to materialism.

That the messages were not posted, was not due to technical problems ... I deleted them.
Sometime I just don't manage to post them due to inner resistance ...without knowing what it actually is.


Death comes for each of us. Our focus should be on preparation. It is the great launch. We would like our ship to fly to the stars, further still to our birthplace, and not orbit and return here. This is a foreign planet and not our home. The pilot of the ship must be focused and prepared for the flight. It doesn't steer itself, except for the default autopilot for orbit, re-entry and landing. We have a role to meet our Master at the space station, change vehicles, allowing this one to return to earth, and proceed into deep space without any other distractions. This is how best to prepare our friends and relations for that moment, so that we can remain undistracted by anything else, including and especially the past. We aren't waiting. We have plenty to do on launch day. A pilot must be focused on their job. Like all things in life, we have a role to play. There is no death as some define it. It is however the most crucial transition and we must be doing our part. Those who do not believe in transition should not be distracting those preparing for it. Certainly not by drawing their attention to the past. We have work to do in that moment, and in preparation, like any program to train astronauts. It takes years. But when the time comes, we need to be buckled in, all systems checked and started, eyes on the monitor, heart to the stars.

all symbolism is personal, all regions are individual, . .

Well said. 👏

But what the hell are astronauts with such focus doing shagging outside their marriages for? Surely this is a distraction? Ground control to major Tom - wakey wakey.

@ Spence

There are those who have so called inner experiences and those who have not.

The first have to deal with the content of their experiences i.r.t death and the others what they are told by their parents, local clergy and scientists.

As I wrote before, ....IF ....if the experience of Abraham, peace be upon him, is caused by something other than himself, he, that cause, could and SHOULD have informed the elders of all tribes in the world about his decision, that the tribe of Abraham would be his chosen people and the land of Israel for all days to come their heritage. He did not, and see the consequences thereof in history, until these days. I guess a court would find an article in the books of law, on which that cause can and should be sentenced, dipriving people from information that is vital to their welfare.

The same holds for things as karma. reincarnation, afterlife etc. ...IF .... if there is a cause that has a plan with people on earth, he could and SHOULD have that known to each and every living creature. That would be fair instead of delivering them to HEARSAY, speculations etc of clergy and the lonely mystic that had an experience.

Every living thing and creature has an build in drive to stay alive .... the abstract projection of that drive makes people believe in after lives etc based on hearsay, who use it to their personal advantage in this world.

What you wrote, is a stage play, a drama, a game ... written by humans, believed by humans, acted out by them. For some it is a pleasure for others not; makes it live easier or more problematic.

It is a pity that games have to be presented to others as reality, to be believed and played properly.!!

Hi Um
Abraham could only speak to his own experience. He experienced what he believed was God's instruction. And he followed it, and led others as well. It was his truth and it became the tribe's truth. It had utility for the time, and there is inspiration for others. What today can we take from Abraham's own journey? That we can find connection within ourselves, that God can live in us. But that is a personal God. If you believe my God is also yours, that becomes your personal God, which you choose. That is you own chosen faith, by choice, your commitment to it: your BarMitzvah. You make that personal choice. You stay with your commitment and develop yourself in it. And His presence can give you great peace, strength and insight. There can only be one God for anyone, and yes, physically, biologically, it is the same God. A personal God.

God 's covenant with Abraham and all the people of Israel happened in a dream, if you will re-read those passages. He found himself in a place where flesh was divided, and he walked between the two halves of the flesh to meet the Lord. And that is where the covenant was made, at twilight, where two realities were divided and Abraham walked between those, having separated from the flesh.

There is the inner reality, where we find God, and there is also His presence with us here, where we walk through this divided world in His company. And we ourselves must separate from the two halves of the flesh, and as our conscious self, walk through that narrow pathway between to meet the Lord within ourselves.

People trusted Abraham's vision and believed this was the covenant meant as the path for all the Israelites, and that would be everyone in the world. In other words, each of us must walk on that path for ourselves. That is the covenant. If we will do that we will find nectar, food in abundance, and the Lord 's peace and protection. And that may appear different to each. The mind is a symbolic machine.

In Isaiah you can read that on God's holy mountain all people return to that inner Israel. And in Leviticus all the citizens of Israel, including foreigners living there, regardless of belief, are forgiven of their sins by God himself every year. And in the year of Jubilee, all people in that nation are to forgive each other and even all financial debts. We can do this right now for ourselves and each other. We could make 2020 the year of Jubilee just forgiving all loans and all tresspasses. We would only need the faith of a child in our own path, in our own connection with His presence. Then He will, through love, teach you all about letting go for a greater treasure, all about forgiving.

Then each of us can rend asunder this flesh and rise above it. It's not complicated.

You already have an inner experience, Um. It is for you to listen to it, observe it, honor it, become its student, and let it blossom within you. That is your own portable holy scripture. There is none holier. For that you need faith in what is within you. As Christ said, what is within you will save you. What is not within you will destroy you.

It doesn't mean a symbol is what you think it means. But it does mean a symbol reflects something very real, and if you can find that peace within, you can find those teachings right there also.

And that strength, and the Master, and that journey beyond the stars.

Hi Helen
When a crime has been committed, decades ago, there is penance. There is every effort made for those decades to make recompense. The presence of the Master gave me the strength to do it, to give away all I had. And to dedicate my life to my beloved son. Those were His gifts. He made the path easy.

Judging others who have no connection to our life can also be a terrible distraction, a lesson I've been learning.


I don’t know what your ethnicity is but here’s an interesting article:

I guess when more than have the country is forced into an arranged marriage it’s more likely people search for love outside of marriage.

Arranged marriages are sad. They’re purely for maintaining ones status in society and keeping a race “pure”. They’re horrible. I’m writing a paper about it for sociology. This of course is my opinion based on a lot of things, but I haven’t found one good aspect of arranged marriages in my research other than people in countries where arranged marriages are the highest are more likely to tolerate adultery. And that’s not a good thing... it just means those marriages will likely last because the spouse doesn’t really care what the other one is doing OR the spouse is completely trapped in the marriage by society and has to put up with the infidelity, mental, emotional and physical abuse.

Bravo 👏

I can’t remember exactly who it was, but some influential Indian guy was going on about how much better arranged marriages are. Of course, he’s racist too so go figure.

@ Spence

>>Abraham could only speak to his own experience. <<

That is not the point, Spence!!
How could he and all those with inner experiences do otherwise?!
It is not about the content of these experiences that I wrote.
But about the claims made based on these experiences and the consequences of believing these claims.

The fact that all these experiences are individual, raises the question if there is a cause for these claims outside and beyond that very individual.

I use the example of Abraham as he told his tribes men that their god had made them his people and that the land of, milk and honey was forgiver theirs .... so far so good ... but that cause, if there is one FAILED to inform the rest of the world .... staring with the people living there .... look friends, I, your god, gave this to Abraham and his people, and you do well to heed my words.

It is this failure and the meaning and consequences for the rest of humanity of this failure that i was pointing at.

If there is a cause that created the experience, and that cause is related to ALL of humanity, that that cause could and should have, informed them too .... he FAILED to do that!! ... and that is the point.


You should watch Britannia. The gods are weird. And the Druids were freaky. Oh, the lakhs and lakhs of gods... 😁 I think that’s the thing. A lot of people worship gods and never get to the oneness/“emptiness”/ultimate reality.

Buddhists have a lot of gods but no supreme god which actually makes sense now that I think about it because at the supreme level there is only one and we are all it.

So, there is no God because there is no god separate from us because we are god. Finally, I get it. But it’s all semantics. Sometimes I wonder why we even bother arguing about it.

I don’t understand ppl that preach. Never have. Never will. I just find it might amusing that those who preach loudest are often the biggest sinners. And then when they pulled up on it - it’s o but we are all sinners and show me he who cast the first stone and all that.

I mean what kind of useless characters are these ppl. They all the same kind of holier than thou shrieking from the pulpit bush Baptist’s that Christian countries and its offshoots tend to produce.

And worst of the lot, when the one person they should hold most high fails, or doesn’t even fail but is deemed by them to have failed, they turn on him like a pack of rabid hyenas. I just don’t get these kind of ppl, let alone so-called disciples. Who needs enemies. With friends like those. As for spiritual adepts, don’t make me laugh.

Wierd ain’t it?

Maybe I am setup a different way. I don’t particularly give a flying fk about arranged marriages, extramarital shagging or any kind of moralizing - but it strikes me if someone does something v good for you or your family, you should try repay that kindness, rather than trying tear that person down. Anyways It looks like the main man is innocent - no surprises there really.


Think each second that You are HER
The "Who am I" is solved
Next mandatory mix with :

"So says Nanak, . . the lowliest of the lowly
sacrifice I am unto Thee, Oh Holy"

That s IT



It’s funny how some people have the ability to get under your skin more than others. Anyway, would wish you a happy thanksgiving but that’s not really your thing.

Play some chess.

Princess Georgina, I seriously doubt your guy goes around hating people as much as you do.

Yeah, Georgy, we already know you don’t give a “flying fk” about morality. You’ve made that abundantly clear.

One last thing—

I don’t know about Spencer’s son’s experience, but as for my husband’s experience at the Christmas party, you have invalidated that by everything you’ve said and done. Party tricks. I’m more worried for his soul than ever before and yes I’m well aware of the time.

How to have a nice balance between chakras
( sex & divine arousal )
with ( 4satsangis ) the accent on the highest chakra


With lots of humour
Corresponds with my idea of Love :
"One needs TWO to dance the tango"


@ Spence e.a.

Yesterday I saw an interview with "Joseph Chilton Pearce". The first video on youtube when you use his name as search subject. He is the writer of the crack in the cosmic egg.

Probably a man that speaks your language of the heart. :-)

Speaking that way seems to be reserved for those who have inner experiences.
What i have to say about that subject I did.
As far as I understand these experiences like NDE etc are all sort of "gift"...what doesn't mean there is a giver but only to say that they were not generated at will by them but received.
Some, most?, found later on, an way to re-create those experiences.
Having found these means of re-creation they did share them with those around ...understandable :-)

Now the question arises:
"can these experiences be artificially generated by others, using the manipulating of the mind/body as done by the "mystic" the one that received the experience first."
and ....
"what happens at the time of initiation?"... pearce, initiated by Muktananda speaks of "transmission of power" [the opening of the doors of perception].

I wonder if that transmission of power, or the use of these manipulating techniques work for ALL people or only for those few who are born with the needed receptivity like having a talent for say music.

Pearce e.a. use the content of their experiences to enter the world of child psychology and have their say on how the world works and how children should be raised.

One has to realize that the mystic when he speaks uses the same cultural goggles as the one that hears what he has to say ... if they want to communicate. ...and ... doing so he attributes to the notion that ..."things can and should be changed for the better" ... what in turn will add up to the frustration of "not being good" ... which will lead to even more negative feelings they say that are created through the cosmic cultural egg.

I feel that people have to deal with what they encounter in their personal life and nobody else can do that for them.!!

So the mystic has to deal with his experiences like the person that is born rich or poor, healthy or disabled, in this country or another, with his.

To make it clear what I am after ....
There has been in the past a man that was terminal Ill and the doctors could not do a thing for him; whatever they did, didn't work. When he realized that they were not going to help him, he took things in his own hand and started an search. In the end he found that he could cure from his illness by eating grapes. On having refound his health he decided to share his experience with the world and wrote an book on grapes as the cure for all and everything.
..... It didn't work that way for all and everything.

There are more stories around from people who hat gone through the same trajectory.

I came to the conclusion that they were not cured by the means they used but by their determination to live and taking responsibility for it instead of outsourcing it on the medical world.

So it seems that for sowing, the ground in which the seeds falls does matter and if the ground is not fertile,
the quality of the seeds doesn't matter.

That being the case mystics add to the missery of others by making them believe that they too can change, take part in their abundance.

I hate it that i have to write in another language @#%$^%$#


OK... well then, thanks for sharing.

That was a pretty good Ted talk but it really is a complex subject. I think society way oversimplifies it in general. It can be spiritual or really base but either way nobody wants to talk about it. So strange.
