Spirituality?

In SciFi World, spirituality takes on a new roll.

Merging ancient philosophy, modern science and pragmatic insight, our new approach to spirituality is authentic, tolerant and liberating.

No longer do we squabble over superficial dogmas.

No longer are the inner wisdom of ancient spiritual paths kept hidden… or left shrouded in plain view.

In SciFi World, free from political agenda, free from blackmail, the worlds historians, data scientists, anthropologists and linguists are decoding ancient mysteries for all to behold.

They reveal:

The truth about human evolution

The reality of ancient spiritual beliefs

The synergy between sacred symbols, alphabets, zodiac signs, tarot, modern psychology, and theoretical physics

Spirituality is now known as a journey within, not a journey without.

An integration of our true inner most authentic selves and embracing our infinite personal powers.

Rather than seeking for a higher external power under which we are inferior.

SciFi World spirituality recognizes the god-power within man. The righthood of selfhood. The morality of selfishness. The validity of ones own unique reality tunnels through which you perceive your world. The honesty of your own personal mission to grow, create, develop, become.

A spirituality of contradictions: of unity and separation, of ‘as above’ and ‘so below’, of giving and taking, of strength and tenderness, of earthly pleasures and heavenly clarity.

A spirituality of absolute coherent clarity: of peace, and love, and bliss, and integrity, and creativity, and focus and freedom.

In SciFi World we each see beyond the limits of superficial language and see with contextual clarity the wisdom that was beckoning us all along.

Now freed from the ravages of coercion, force and fraud within mainstream society, our minds open like receptive flowers, to a new perspective of eternal romance, creativity and harmony.

The Lost Art Of Spiritual Sex

Blissful relationship involves soooooo many components that most people never, EVER, even begin to wonder about or explore… let alone act on, develop or master.

One of those components is maintaining authenticity between partners — particularly in communication about sex.

And I know. It’s challenging enough to be true to oneself in life. Let alone being completely authentic within the fluid nature of relationship with a second person!

Did you know that a key reason for men seeking divorce from marriage is their dissatisfaction with their partners sexual responsiveness?

If we read into that a little we can assume that’s because the women her self is sexually dissatisfied with the man!

Where are we going wrong?

You wouldn’t marry someone in the first place who was so incompatible in bed, would you?

And yes, body’s change through time, men’s testosterone levels go down, body parts begin to droop, yet communication is the key to sexual unity and romantic bliss.

If the chemistry is right at the beginning of a relationship, sex only becomes bad or boring because of inauthentic communication between the partners.

What we know is that men are ashamed or scared of communicating what they want, or don’t want, in various areas of relationship. Eventually it becomes emotionally easier to break the relationship than to unravel all of the resentment and dissatisfaction that has built over time.

Where do we start?

What clear priorities exist for creating romantic bliss in sustainable relationship? What can give us a symbolic ideal vision of authentic fulfillment for both partners?

One thing perhaps that we can all agree on is the desire for rapturous sex.

The type of mind-bending sexual satisfaction that many people relate to having experienced at times in the past.

Having that experience available again and again symbolizes the height of sustained authentic harmony between partners.

Of course, I don’t mean your average garden variety sex.

Nor do I mean the kind of exciting sex that’s available in weird and wonderful ways through modern dating hook-up sex, kinky sex, BDSM, or swinger sex.

I mean Spiritual Sex.

What is Spiritual Sex?

Before I get into this, please consider again that most people never, EVER, even begin to wonder about or explore… let alone act on, develop or master… the components of authentic relationship.

So what I’m about to describe may strike you as completely unfamiliar, off the wall, kooky, too demanding or even scary.

If you want to create lasting authentic romantic bliss in your life, these insights are absolutely vital because to understand harmony between two people, we must consider our own individual essence, nature and needs.

And that all begins at the root of human experience. Namely, consciousness, the meaning of life and our drive towards pleasure.

If you just want some matter-of-fact tips and techniques on improving your sex life, check out our other articles, take our premium 5-month curriculum, or visit other popular blogs on the web.

This article is a deep-dive into questions of our spiritual connection with existence itself and how that influences the reality of creating authentic romantic bliss.

First, sex isn’t just intercourse. It’s affection. It’s hugs. It’s kissing. It’s carrying out the garbage or any other chore to alleviate stress that interferes with the positive flow of energy for either partner. It’s being there for each other and building that ongoing exciting, satisfying, nurturing, erotically charged tension of enjoying each other in every possible way.

Spiritual Sex means a union of forces, or energies, that permeate the universe. Some call it Yin and Yang. Some call it Kundalini Energy. Some call it Prana or Chi. Some refer to it as Tantra. Wilhelm Reich called it Orgone Energy.

That energy is what we gather through our mind-body-spirit and convert into our life experience, physically and emotionally.

Now For A Little History of Sex and Spirituality

Modern religion and pop culture have buried these spiritual pursuits of physically and emotionally pleasurable fulfillment in a sea of superficial dogma and distraction.

Yet the ideas of Tantra, or ‘sex energy cultivation for spiritual ascension’, permeates spiritual traditions throughout history.

“All of the ancient spiritual traditions have a Tantric component.” – Weiser Field Guide To Ascension: The Meaning of Miracles and Shifts in Consciousness Past and Present – Cal Garrison

Regardless of your interpretation of what ‘god’ means, the importance of sex in modern religion is revealed in the esoteric (hidden, secret, guarded) sides of Judaism, Christianity and Islam within Kabbalah:

“The Kabbalah teaches that … man can achieve total union with God only through sexual intercourse. This is one of the most zealously guarded secrets of the Kabbalah. Because God is made of two principles, male and female, and because they are forever united in perfect harmony, man must also endeavour to achieve perfect harmony in sex with a woman, one woman. According to Kabbalah a man or a woman who has never joined in sex with a member of the opposite sex can never come in contact with God.” – The Complete Book of Spells, Ceremonies, and Magic, Migene González-Wippler

Before modern religions, the Ancient Egyptians prioritized the cultivation of sex energy in spirituality. They believed in “knowing all sixty-four sexual modes as requisite to entering the King’s Chamber to ascend to the next level of consciousness”.

Sex energy also stimulates our genius as identified by Napoleon Hill who researched 100 of the greatest scientists, businessmen and thinkers of his time.

“The desire for sexual expression is by far the strongest and most impelling of all the human emotions, and for this very reason this desire, when harnessed and transmuted into action, other than that of physical expression, may raise one to the status of a genius.
One of America’s most able business men frankly admitted that his attractive secretary was responsible for most of the plans he created. He admitted that her presence lifted him to heights of creative imagination, such as he could experience under no other stimulus..”
– Napoleon Hill

Women’s sexual potential has been hidden from current society too. It turns out that a woman’s conscious awareness, confidence, ability to focus, sense of freedom and fulfillment are all directly linked to the hormonal connections between the brain and her network of sexual circuitry. A topic that we delve into within the 5-month courtship curriculum.

Indeed, The Arc of Romantic Sexual Chemistry Between Man and Woman is Quite Possibly The Most Powerful Force in The Universe.

As such, romantic bliss via all elements of spiritual sex is the noble and crucial goal for creating maximum fulfillment in life.

So here’s…

How to Create Spiritual Sex with your Partner

In a nut shell, the formula is quite straightforward…

Be honest. Be open. Be adventurous.
Communicate without negative judgement.
Tell each other what you enjoy and don’t enjoy.
Create time and space to indulge and explore.
Nurture each others sense of security and consideration.
Show that you want to create and protect the preciousness of your shared connection.
Accept that you have separate individual perspectives and preferences.
Honor the differences. Support each other to achieve your individual life goals
and pursue your shared and separate interests.
And then practice, practice, practice giving each other maximum pleasure.

Of course, that’s all easier said than done.

So the art of Spiritual Sex is actually the pursuit of a completely fulfilling relationship. And that just might be the very meaning of life.

Again, sex isn’t just intercourse.

It’s affection. It’s hugs. It’s kissing.

It’s alleviating stress that interferes
with positive energy for both of you.

It’s being there for each other
and building an ongoing exciting,
satisfying, nurturing, erotically charged tension
through enjoying each other in every possible way.


 Spiritual Sex is taught throughout the Courtship Curriculum
with emphasis on principles and techniques in Modules 1, 4 and 5.

Achieving Ecstasy Like A God

The original Greek meaning of ‘ecstasy’ was an experience of being outside of yourself.

This is what we seek in terms of ascension.

You achieve that in human form by being ‘in flow’, as described by this leading music composer:

You are in an ecstatic state to such a point that you feel as though you almost don’t exist. I have experienced this time and time again. My hand seems devoid of myself, and I have nothing to do with what is happening. I just sit there watching it in a state of awe and wonderment. And [the music] just flows out of itself.

Mihaly explains this process as when we are doing something highly challenging when we also have a high degree of skill for it, and the brain reaches our natural limit of processing information.

He says the brain can only process 120 bits of information at a time.  Listening to a conversation requires at least 60 bits.

The composer continues:

when you are really involved in this completely engaging process of creating something new – as this man does – he doesn’t have enough attention left over to monitor how his body feels or his problems at home. He can’t feel even that he’s hungry or tired, his body disappears, his identity disappears from his consciousness because he doesn’t have enough attention, like none of us do, to really do well something that requires a lot of concentration and at the same time to feel that he exists.

‘Body disappears’

‘Forgets his own existence’

Doesn’t this sound a lot like the ecstasy sought by new-age spiritualists?

Transcending the body. Rising above physical experience to a higher dimension? Etc…

Indeed:

This capacity of our conscious processing mind may be the greatest opportunity for ecstasy as described and sought by old spiritual traditions.

Body disappears… physical discomforts disappear… identity disappears from his consciousness… existence is temporarily suspended.

Mihaly describes the 7 key points of feeling in flow:

1. Completely involved in what we are doing – focused, concentrated.
2. A sense of ecstasy – of being outside everyday reality.
3. Great inner clarity – knowing what needs to be done, and how well we are doing.
4. Knowing that the activity is doable – that skills are adequate to the task.
5. A sense of serenity – no worries about oneself, and a feeling of growing beyond the boundaries of the ego.
6. Timelessness – thoroughly focused on the present, our sin to pass by in minutes.
7. Intrinsic motivation – whatever produces flow becomes its own reward.

Sounds good right?

But if we are never aware or conscious of that experience then there’s really no point in it, as it’s our individual experience of something that makes it worth while. This is a key point that modern-day spiritualists miss, but they miss it because they’re so desperately seeking that out of body ecstatic state of flow.

Now here’s the practical implications:

A truism in the field of creativity says that we need 10,000 hours or 10 years of technical and experiential immersion into a subject before we approach mastery of creativity in that field… the ability to truly change something in a way that it’s better than before.

10,000 hours or 10 years may be somewhat arbitrary, but here’s the point…

It takes time to master creativity in any subject.

So imagine the potential of ecstatic experience given an accumulation of mastery in different topics to enter the flow of true creativity….

Therein lies the future of our enlightenment and of our ascension to a higher dimension of experience.

Right down here on Earth. Not up there in some fantasy light-body mysticism.

But it requires tremendous effort to become masterful at anything. And there in lies the rub. People today are lazy. You Are lazy.

Am I right?

So how can you encourage yourself to focus on the real requirements of ascension rather than the effortless fantasy of pseudo spiritual ascension?

Well, that’s ultimately the topic for the entirety of Survival2020.

We call it The Flower of Being.

Survival2020 Poem: Please Put Me Back In The Matrix…

Genuinely scary when even the ‘health food’ shop doesn’t seem so healthy any more…
I’ve had quite enough…
…can someone from TPTB (the powers that be) please just re-insert me back into the matrix?
Ignorance seems to be bliss after all…
I promise to buy a TV again. I’ll watch mainstream media shows, watch the puppet news broadcasts every night — and endeavour to believe it as fact!
I’ll vote for your politicians. I’ll get myself a licensed pharmaceutical doctor and take the vaccinations…
I’ll stop watching alternative media documentaries. Stop eating organic. And stop planning to live a self-sustainable natural healthy lifestyle outside of the major cities…
I’ll even eat whatever Monsanto gives me. And ignore the radiation still spewing from Fukushima.
Or no wait… better yet, I can just become part of the New Age Movement and believe that belief without judgement or effort… and total acceptance of whatever comes along… is the spiritual thing to do.
Won’t someone please just plug me back into the matrix?
I’ll forget about the esoteric insights of man and woman’s true nature of divinity.
I’ll blank out any awareness of the value of time, the preciousness of conscious experience and the drive towards creating values.
I’ll just throw caution to the wind and live in the moment, eating junk food or vegan soya alternatives, saying prayers or ohm-ing my way to blissful stupification…
I’ll get a run-of-the-mill job that pays my basic bills, start a family, and send my kids into the education system.
Please will you put me back inside the matrix?

What Frustrates Me Most In Life (an immortalists confessional)

It’s not the political suppression that saturates our life…
It’s not the humdrum of daily stress that wastes so much precious time…
It’s not the opportunity for love that seems to slip by all too easily…
And it’s not my own inability to achieve greater and faster success…
…As frustrating as all those things truly, madly and deeply are.
It seems to pale in comparison to a curiosity I carry about the nature of human history.
Some think we come from space aliens and have no inherent spiritual purpose at all.
Some think we come from god and should die to merge back with his formless totality.
Some think we’re cosmic manifestations of vibrational ether and will return to the limitless.
And some just don’t think at all.

“Ho hum so what sigh Earth’s bored citizens distracted by anti-civilization insanities” – Frank R Wallace

But I believe there is a web of insight available in the libraries and databases of the world today that would reveal humanities true past — and so point to our possible illuminated future.
…yet I see no one who has pieced it all together succinctly, holistically, reliably or convincingly.
Frank R Wallace was heading in that direction until his death in 2006 — still to this day my most valued thinker and cherished author.
Others such as Michael Tsarion, Santos Bonacci, Cliff High, Stephan Molyneux… and many more, all seem to be doing a remarkable job of integrating so very much intelligent insight, weaving notes of history and psychology into a symphony of discovery.
And yet that niggling sense of deep frustration remains — ever present.
Because none of these researchers light the way both backward into antiquity and forward into the new world, sufficiently.
There messages are all too easy to dismiss by the masses. Forgotten by even their greatest fans in the whoop-and-wharf of daily life.
Smothered by distractions. Trapped by obligations. Confused by misinformation.
But you know what…?
I wonder if there are actually any alive today who have the widest, deepest, longest-reaching big picture of the human condition… that they know Earth’s ancient history beyond what is currently published in all the libraries of the world.
Perhaps they live among the elitist billionaires, with access to satellites and sonar that reads the secrets laying hidden at the bottom of the oceans… topographical landscape analysis that reveals the ancient structures and monuments… linguistic codification that explains the scriptures in clear and simple honesty without artifice, without misdirection, without fabrication.
I can better understand the existence of sociopathic murdering treacherous scum such as senior banksters and politicians, than I can understand the type of person who might know exactly what is going on throughout history yet does not come forward to reveal it to the world.
My deepest niggling frustration is to find, if they exist, the people who really know what the heck is going on in the world… and why…
…why they let it continue on as they do?
…why they seemingly choose to accept the human condition subsisting at a level unfit for the greatness that we are capable of being?
And when, if ever, they will come out of the closet to un-shroud the ancient mysteries, and use their mighty influence and wealth to re-cast the stars above us into a map revealing our inner natures as gods, goddesses and kings.
My deepest frustration is wanting to fulfil my purpose in life, knowing how very simple it is to achieve given today’s technological capacity… yet NOT knowing which path to take to ensure it happens — while the great sand-timer continues to poor.
Come torment or failure… I will suffer no cowardly night-of-fire as the great mathematician Pascal did, escaping his awareness of this anti-civilization through religion.
I will keep my integrity. I will honor my purpose.

“My purpose in life is to conquer death” – as Frank R Wallace so neatly expressed.

And I will succeed.
I am immortal.
And so are you.
Viva la Revolution of Eternal Life, Love, Health and Happiness.

Externalisation of the Soul

So long as we remain in the womb of this externalized and public existence, we are spared the terror and the dignity of becoming a self – William Barrett

Dear fellow spiritual being,

Are you faking it to make it? Are you riding the great intoxicating wave of the Mayan age, into the Age of Aquarius… or are you just delirious?

Are you hanging your soul out to dry in the breathless pause,

Flinging your own selfhood high into the air in expression of what you value most,

But gush out of your centre like an uncontrollable hose?

Your teachers have told you that the nameless can not be named, the word is not the experience… yet in no other time in history has mankind spewed forth so much in the way of lofty ascension, chakra sparks and indigo children…

The majority of well-adapted individuals…have lost their own self at an early age and replaced it completely by a social self offered to them by society…They have no neurotic conflicts because they themselves, and, therefore, the discrepancy between their selves and the outside world have disappeared – Erich Fromm

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars: and they pass by themselves without wondering – St. Augustine of Hippo

The collectivist fails to notice that by way of his compulsive “sharing,” his thoughts and ideas cease to be his own… the hyper-extrovert collectivist empties out his consciousness without stint, becoming a hollow, vapid specimen without realizing it. – Michael Tsarion

So stop. Turn inwards. Return to the Tao.

If you want to worship the Tao, first discover it in your own heart. Then your worship will be meaningful – Lao Tzu

I entreat you, my brothers, remain true to the earth, and do not believe those who speak to you of superterrestrial hopes! They are poisoners, whether they know it or not. They are despisers of life, atrophying and self-poisoned – Friedrich Nietzsche

Consider the question…

Do you know who you are?

A ridiculous question? Superficial? Boring? Or a swirl of possibilities that you have well under control in your pursuit of Kundalini, Bhuddhist, Yogic, Meditation?

Perhaps.

But have you read the Sutras of Patanjali?

No? And you claim to practice Yoga? Shame on you. Literally.

If you’re not feeling a twinge of anxiety right now, I haven’t done my job.

My hope is that you’ll forgive my approach and walk with me into the underworld of spirituality.

For only there, deep below the surface, glows the true light of individuality. Dare I say it, the gift of Lucifer. The bringer of light. The morning star. The rising sun. The source of illumination. It’s metaphor!

Only the advanced can enter past these prickly thorns,

for they are all but a mirage for the one who owns the inner self.

Atop the Temple at Delphi?

“Know thy Self”

But why? Why such a ‘simple’ plea from such a great centre of enlightenment, education and spirituality?

Because it really is The Key.

Self-realization is necessary before God-realization wrote the ancient Vedic scribes – Michael Tsarion

And no, no book like that of Patanjali can show you truth.

But that’s the point. Truth can be found only in your self.

…it’s there now, waiting for discovery.

Anyone who is forced from his own course, either through not understanding himself, or through external imposition, comes into conflict with the order of the Universe, and suffers accordingly – Aleister Crowley

I offer you this:

The externalisation of the soul relates to the self-directed destruction of one’s own soul by externalising your pursuit of truth, fulfilment and experience.

The taoist path places our internal world as the most important, and through self connection and health… care of the body, can we rise into power and vitality… in the external world.

But people chase fantasies, abstractions, stimulation, fanciful ideas about god, the universe, and sacred geometry…

Thus they miss out on the only real key to ascension: the inner journey of unfolding the self in full integrity.

Internalisation of Selfhood

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens – Carl Gustav Jung

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. Sapere Aude! (Dare to Know!). “Have courage to use your own understanding!” – that is the motto of enlightenment – Immanual Kant

There have always been sickly people among those who invent fables and long for God: they have a raging hate for the enlightened man and for that youngest of virtues which is called honesty – Friedrich Nietzsche

Ironically, and thus shrouded in secrecy, integrity requires selfishness, individuality, separation, and identity.

(many of the things that new age spiritualists condemn)

But only then, can we come to real unity.

Orwell expressed it well. “Brotherhood and Solidarity” as chains that bind us, gears that grind us, weights that suppress us under the powers that be.

Ayn Rand’s ‘The Anthem’ opens the door.

I am done with the monster of “We,” the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame.

And now I see the face of god, and I raise this god over the earth, this god whom men have sought since men came into being, this god who will grant them joy and peace and pride.

This god, this one word: “I.”

Or hark back to the ancient esoteric Vedas if you prefer:

In the beginning this world was only the self, in the shape of a person. Looking around he saw nothing else than the self. He first said “I am” –  – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

And:

One should worship with the thought that he is one’s self, for therein all become one. This self is the footprints of that All, for by it one knows the All…One should reverence the Self alone as dear. And he who reverences the Self alone as dear – what he holds dear, verily, will not perish – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Make the choice, strengthen your resolve, refresh your focus…

Just a few of the people I believe are doing the right work in leading us towards the simple practical realisations of self:

And in my own small way, myself.

Are you with us too?

Unity in individuality. Synergy in mutual harmony. Collaboration in value creation.

Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why so great a proportion of men, long after nature has released them from alien guidance… nonetheless gladly remain in lifelong immaturity, and why it is so easy for others to establish themselves as their guardians. – Immanual Kant

Given that for each man the center of the universe is his own Self, it alone must be placed at the head of the list of philosophical priorities…. where there is no Self there is no Truth… there is no enlightenment to be found outside the Self… – Michael Tsarion

Civilization is the process of setting man free from men – Ayn Rand

Ego-identity connects us with a tribe of belonging for survival, contribution and meaning. Our real ego is to be nurtured. False ego’s can be shed.

Give your gift through fractal unfoldment of your own Flower of Being.

Grasp the meaning behind these prickly posts:

Alone, frustrated and confused… I discovered God’s Dot

I was 15. Confused. Alone.

Desperately frustrated… with life, with the stagnant now, with myself.

Sitting in the middle of my bedroom, I gave myself permission.

Permission to feel, to express, to… cry.

Until that moment I hadn’t done that. I hadn’t faced the truths that lay within.

The actual bodily experience of my discombobulated journey through life thus far.

I cried deep. A slow wail and deep sobbing shook me, but I didn’t turn away. Not this time.

I went inside to look at my inner self, to see what I would… or could find.

Darkness engulfed me and soon, stillness.

Yet a new movement soon began.

Downwards, deeper and deeper, down into what I’ve recently learned is represented by the ‘Tan Tien’, the abdominal brain, a collection of neurons (‘brain’ cells) that each of us has around our small intestines.
A focal point of some spiritual meditative practices.

The experience was of sinking into a vastness of empty space…
empty relative to the noisy chaotic disorder of normal waking experience…
or certainly compared to the frustrated, confused and lonely young man.

Then, like a spaceship nearing a planet, my vision slowed as I neared a circle of light.
A cloudy hazy ring of effervescent exuberance, surrounding a distinct central dot.

On encountering this point, I had a realisation that
has been impressed upon my consciousness every since.
The realisation that this was my essence, my center.. and nothing could shake me from it.
That it was absolutely whole and fulfilled. And completely safe.
Neither lacking anything or needing anything. In a word, perfect.

I hovered there for just a moment, a moment that seemed fleeting yet full.
And I began to travel back from where I had come.
Back up, back out of the vastness within.

As I returned gradually to the room, my bedroom,
the sensations of my body returned and I realised my face was dry. No tears.
My face was relaxed. Not contorted by pain.
My brow was straight. Not frowning from confusion or frustration.
And my heart was floating. Not burdened by the previous weight of anguish.

I noticed the room was darker now than when I had sat down, because the sky outside was darker.
Some hours had passed though I don’t know exactly how long.

I haven’t felt comfortable sharing this experience for more than 15 years.
But it has become relevant for me in sharing with significant others,
or helping some through their own darkness and into the light.
And now feels time to share it with the world, or at least, whoever visits my site.

If you have a similar experience, I would love to hear of it.
I have found only one description that seems to closely match what I experienced, and that’s in a book by Taoist Master Mantak Chia.

So recently I have taken on the project to re-explore the same meditative route
(minus the frustration and confusion) down into that dark vastness to again reconnect with that circle and dot of light at my center.

On that day some 15-years ago I felt with certainty, yet at a loss for words, just as day follows night that:

The dot was both myself and it was god.

My connection to the energetically yin flux of the great cosmos is uncontrollable yet perfectly navigable, just as the rolling oceans

My single pointedness of penetrative yang consciousness must focus on living and loving creation.
This eternal quest embodies the will of the universe.

It’s what I call ‘God’s Dot’.

I am that I am.
And you too.

“The eternal silence of these infinite spaces fills me with dread.” – Blaise Pascal (1623 – 1662)

Pascal may have discovered the same inner vastness, yet he didn’t connect with his genuine divinity.

So following his “night of fire”, he lost himself forever by converting to Christianity.

Tantra, Chi Energy, Sex and the Tao (in London UK)

Have you ever experienced energetic waves streaming up your spine, washing over your head, and tingling through your hands?

In my early years, it happened often, whenever I felt a strong sense of wonder… insight… or eroticism.

The sensation is that of a mix between goose bumps, sexual tingles, a rolling peaceful massage, and putting your fingers in an electric socket.

I assume you know the kind of overall experience I mean.

Well, little did I realise until recently that what I was tapping in to, was the movement of Chi energy, otherwise known as Prana (Sanskrit for ‘vital life’) or ‘life force’ energy.

And I have always been somewhat interested in things like the Kama Sutra, or Kundalini Yoga, or Tantric Sex, but until the actual physical evidence, it just seems like fanciful artistic excuse for yogic meditation or sexual foreplay.

Nothing necessarily wrong with either, but there’s something more going on here…

I never connected the dots between my experience and the eastern philosophies of chi energy cultivation, until I started to practice according to the teachings of Mantak Chia.

Mantak Chia: Tantric Cultivation for Pleasure and Health

I consider Mantak Chia to be one of my real teachers, as his books actually encouraged me enough to dedicate myself to practice, of literally circulating the life force energy up my spine and around my head, and own the front of my body (in what is called the Micro cosmic orbit).

It doesn’t take much practice to create clear proof of a real effect.

For men, it begins in the balls. (Of course, right?)

Tantric Breathing Exercise

The first exercise I learned from Mantak Chia is something like this:

Sit with loose pants on the edge of a chair. While breathing in, focus the mind on a sensation of inflowing energy into the scrotum. Each inhalation draws more energy into that area and it begins to rise. Within a short space of time I felt a very cold energy collecting there, and I could then gradually draw it up into the lower spinal area.

Since then I have endeavoured to ‘cultivate’ this chi energy, by circulating up the spine, around the head, and down my front, collecting it in my navel area.

Chi energy draws from the intent of the mind (crown chakra) through the lower chakras of the body and circulates it for health, vitality and pleasure throughout the body.

The process is similar for women and explained in great detail by the master of Tantra and Taosim, Mantak Chia. His books are highly recommended, including:

But don’t just read about it, for Tantra and Tao are bodily experiences.

Note: The crown chakra is not ‘beyond’ or ‘above’ the body in terms of importance.  The root and sacral chakras are just as much related to higher spirituality as the crown chakra. Be careful about who you listen to. Most of so called new-age spirituality that’s flung about on the net is extremely unbalanced and will do nothing more than fool you into thinking you’re progressing while actually wasting your precious time and leading you down dead ends.

As Mantak says in the video interview I’ve posted below:

“People want to connect to the heaven but they forget about the Earth. If you don’t have the positive and the negative live wiring, you don’t get electricity. You need to connect with both.”

Another teacher I recommend very much for learning Tantra and Tao is David Deida.

David Deida: Enlightened Sexuality

In the video playlist below you’ll find the start of his lecture series freely available on YouTube.  I highly recommend his audio program called Enlightened Sex which clarifies the dynamic of masculine and feminine energies to help understand the differences between men and women in relationships and thus how to better relate and communicate. And also his excellent book Way of the Superior Man.

Practicing the Tao in London UK

I’m currently living in London UK so I’m getting involved with the Tao and Tantra communities here. Mantak Chia has a centre in London at www.healing-tao.co.uk which is managed by Kris Deva North (also a brilliant Tantra and Taoist teacher). There are various groups on meetup.com. And others such as Tara Yoga Centre. Let me know if you’re in London and interested in getting involved.

Tantra and Tao videos

Here are a few videos to introduce you to these teachers and practices…

Vitruvian Man and practical enlightenment

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] V [/dropcap]itruvian man represents the archetype of humankind’s psychology, in our quest for purity.

However – just as you can’t achieve happiness by directly chasing it, so we can’t ascend to archetypal purity by chasing the models of esoteric or new-age philosophy.

We need a modern practical framework to facilitate wisdom and to mitigate confusion or superficial interpretation.

The best that old civilisations could come up with was religion. But religion breeds unhealthy restriction, irrational fraud and narrow minded dogma.

Today we have a new chance, and a single choice.

A chance to build a bias-free framework of nothing but one’s own internal guidance system… your consciousness purified by honesty.

The 7 dimensions framework published on www.gavrielshaw.com is a model that facilitates that purification, a holistic and simple approach around which to think, feel and act in such a way as to actually ascend to the purity of archetypal humankind through your own efforts.

Stop expecting miracles to come from sacred geometry, numerology, the heavens and the stars, without quickly realising that the only real answers are inside – and the way forward is highly practical.

Our choice is to physically build a better world by reflecting our individual inner self in our external earthly environment.

How you live is who you are.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Only then will you really come to understand all that mystical new-age fluffy stuff. Only then will you coral enough willpower and purity of intent to live in genuine loving kindness. Because only by pursuing worldly understanding will you know your divine spirit.

This is upside down to all the worlds failed religions, superstitions and beliefs. And that is exactly why it can succeed.

The current generation of globally awakened will win the war of two worlds. The war not between government and people, nor between materialism and spirituality, nor between good and evil.

It’s much broader yet much simpler than all that. Earth’s final war is simply the battle between value creators and value destroyers.

Do you see how straight forward and practical that is? How down to Earth?

So which side are you on, really?

  • Do you know how to contribute value to others?
  • Do you know how to create your gift?
  • Do you know how to get organized and get moving?
  • Do you know how to concentrate?
  • Do you know how to empathise and communicate?
  • Do you know how to think?

And how can you maximise those characteristics to the n’th degree while learning to survive and prosper amidst today’s great global awakening?
