Lower Lower Self or Two-Dimensional Life Form?
By 7M, Jan 2013
As I realized that my Higher Self operates in more dimensions than my lower self can sensibly register, I wondered if there is also an even lower self that is only two-dimensional. I decided on a little investigation. And the first site the search engine provided was a Star Trek inspired website.
“A two-dimensional life-form is unlike most typical lifeforms that exist in the galaxy. Generally, lifeforms exist in three dimensions, but these such lifeforms are known to exist in a single plane only (and as such have either no length, no height, or no width). Some of these beings make their homes in cosmic strings, objects a single proton wide but with lengths measuring in kilometers or more. These strings have a gravitational attraction like black holes or homing beacons for two-dimensional beings. Continue reading
Combinations of Power (Rahu and Ketu)
By Joni Patry, 2008
In Vedic astrology the lunar nodes, known as Rahu and Ketu, have special powers in a chart. Often referred to as our karmic destiny, they indicate our greatest gifts and our darkest issues. In prediction they are where the annual eclipses fall, and indicate the areas of our life that involve the most transformation for that year. When the lunar nodes are combined with another planet they take on the quality of that planet. Each combination will produce very different results.
Rahu and Ketu are described as shadowy planets because they are associated with the eclipses of the Sun and the Moon. These shadows developed the powerful myths and meanings bestowed on the nodes, myths of struggles with demons, serpents, and forces of darkness and light. Symbolically they may be seen as our own shadows. Continue reading
From Kundalini Yoga Practices
By Yogi Raja the Master
Yoga is to bring enlightenment in the darkness of the self. All practices described in this book aim at bringing light by self-realization. The lineation towards Yoga depends on one’s Sanskara.

Chakra cord healing work is a new level of expertise for energy healers. After clearing and charging the chakra system, and then removing astral energetic blockages, the next layer of work moves towards healing a client’s relational connections. The energetic hardware for dealing with our relationships are found in the invisible webbing that connect us to others: chakra cords.Human beings use both wired and wireless mediums – cords and the Astral world – to energetically relate to other people: to form and maintain contact, and to share Continue reading
Is there collective or national karma?
Many modern Buddhists such as Thich Nhat Hanh prefer to suggest the “dispersion of karmic responsibility into the social system,” such that “moral responsibility is decentered from the solitary individual and spread throughout the entire social system,” reflecting the left-wing politics of Engaged Buddhism.
Other modern Buddhists have sought to formulate theories of group, collective and national karma which are not found in traditional Buddhist thinking. The earliest recorded instance of this occurred in 1925, when a member of the Maha Bodhi named Sheo Narain published an article entitled “Karmic Law” in which he invited Buddhist scholars to explore the question of whether an individual is “responsible not only for his individual actions in his past life but also for past communal deeds.”
As one scholar writes, “a systematic concept of group karma was in no sense operative in early Theravada” or other schools based on the early sutras. Continue reading
Individual Karma and Group Karma
Karma is the Law of Cause and Effect – one of several Laws that govern life in all the worlds, physical and otherwise – one of the most important natural laws. The simplest explanation maybe the one explained in the Bible – “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. This quote sounds very judgmental – in actuality the Law of Karma is quite impersonal, objective and exacting in its operation. It makes no exceptions and plays no favorites. Every thought, every word and every action is a cause that leads to effects.
Karma ‘earned’ in physical form has to be ‘paid for’ in physical life. As a being in incarnation performs actions, speaks or thinks, Continue reading
