2012 is now!

As I was just writing tomorrows blog-entry I saw on the computer clock that it is the legendary 21st of December which was the big event in 2012.

Were you one of the people who in 2012 were really hoping for some kind of change to happen;
only to have experienced nothing, but instead the ridicule of materialistic trolls who didn’t understand the concept of it all?

I just want to let you know that the good news is that we literally are at the second point of change right now for following reasons:

A sun dawn or rise takes 20 minutes, which is 1.4% of a day.
If you take 1.4% from a Mayan long count cycle of 5125.36 years, it means that it takes over 72 years for a change to occur – an entire human life-time or two generations !

Hence – don’t believe at all that nothing changed – a turn happened -just very very slow. And this shift of consciousness will pervade the rest of your entire life. In case you don’t believe me, write down where you were at 2012, where you are now, and keep track of your own evolution.

As for me I can only tell you that the last 7 years were definitely the most spiritual accelerating I experienced in my entire life up to the point of having an entire new outlook on life, death, myself and the world.

Plus there is the Cabalistic cycle of 7 years after which all planets are walked through, and we are exactly at the same point in the constellation again. And what do we have right now?
To the day 7 years after the ominous shift of consciousness of our millennium! (It also is winter solstice in 8 hours and new moon in 4 days.)

The second seven year cycle merely does shift now from sun to moon, from franticness and fear to emotions and serenity,
so within the upcoming seven years it should be easier to tune into spiritual work than within the last 7-years.

This will only apply to those involved in spiritual personality work – the rest of the world may get even more nervous for being out of tune with the cosmic cycle, so make sure not to be contaminated by them – just keep calm and meditate.

Here is a beautiful summary of what this change, we currently are in, is all about. Choose between the first long version at the top:

Sodarshan Chakra Kriya: Meditation für Fokus und geistige Reinigung

Zitat von Yogi Bhajan:

“Hier ist eine Meditation, die mit Hilfe von Prana geistigen Müll aufräumt, und Klarheit schafft. Von allen 20 Arten Yoga, einschliesslich Kundalini Yoga, ist das das höchste Kriya. Dies ist eine sehr wirksame Meditation, um Reichtum zu erlangen. Sie wird Dir einen Neustart verschaffen. Es ist das einfachste Kriya, aber gleichzeitig eines der schwersten. Diese Übung schneidet durch alle Barrieren der psychotischen oder neurotischen Natur. Wenn sich eine Person in einem sehr schlechten Zustand befindet, werden extern angewandte Methoden nicht funktionieren. Der Druck muss von innen stimuliert werden.

Die Tragödie des Lebens ist, wenn das Unterbewusstsein Abfälle in das Bewusstsein entlädt. Dieses Kriya erweckt die Kundalini um Dir die notwendige Vitalität und Intuition zu geben, um die negativen Nebenwirkungen des Unterbewusstseins zu bekämpfen.

POSITION: Sitze mit einem geraden Rücken ( entweder mit gekreuzten Beinen oder in einem Stuhl mit den Füßen flach auf dem Boden ) Augen sind auf die Nasenspitze fokussiert, oder geschlossen, falls Dir das lieber ist.

MUDRA UND ATEM:
a) Blockiere den rechten Nasenflügel mit dem rechten Daumen. Atme langsam und tief durch den linken Nasenflügel ein und halte den Atem.
Chante im Geiste 16 mal ‘Wahe Guru”, und pumpe dazu den Nabel 3 mal mit jeder Repetition ( einmal bei “Waa”, einmal bei “Heh” und einmal bei “Guru”; insgesamt 48 Bauch-Anspannungen.
b) Löse den Finger vom rechten Nasenflügel und benutze den rechten Zeige- oder kleinen Finger, um das linke Nasenloch zu schließen. Atme langsam und tief durch das rechte Nasenloch aus. Setze die Übung genauso fort links einzuatmen und rechts auszuatmen.

BEENDEN: Inhaliere und halte die Luft für 5-10 Sekunden an. Ausatmen. Dann strecke und schüttle den Körper ungefähr eine Minute lang, um die Energie zu zirkulieren.

ZEIT: Empfohlene Länge für dieses Kriya (Übung) ist 31 oder 62 Minuten täglich.
Ideal ist es mit 31 Minuten anzufangen, aber Du kannst auch mit 11 Minuten anfangen un dann auf 31 Minuten aufbauen, dann 40, und letztendlich 62 Minuten.

  • Es gibt keine Zeit, keinen Platz, keinen Raum und keine Bedingung die mit dieser Meditation verknüpft sind.
    Jeder Müllhaufen benötigt seine eigene Zeit um gereinigt zu werden. Wenn Du Deinen eigenen Müll angehst, musst Du selbst schätzen; und ihn dann so schnell als Du kannst oder langsam, wie Du willst verarbeiten. Du musst entscheiden wie viel Zeit Du hast, um Deine eigene Müllhalde zu verarbeiten.

KOMMENTARE:
Wenn Du diese Meditation 62 Minuten lange machen kannsst, dann baue sie bis zu dem Punkt auf, an dem Du sie für 2 ½ Stunden täglich (1/10tel des Tages) machen kannst. Das gibt Dir dann ”Nao nidhi, athara sidhi”, also die 9 edlen Tugenden und die 18 okkulten Kräfte. In diesen 27 gesamten Tugenden liegt das gesamte Universum.

Wenn für 2 1/2 Stunden täglich praktiziert, macht Dich diese Yoga-Übung zu einem perfekten Übermenschen. Sie reinigt Dein Unterbewusstsein und versorgt das menschliche Leben. Sie macht Dich extrem intuitiv. Sie führt alle 27 Facetten des Lebens zusammen und macht einen Menschen heilig, erfolgreich und qualifiziert. Diese Meditation erzeugt dazu auch pranische Kraft ( über den Atem). Dieses Kriya versagt niemals. Es gibt einem inneres Glück und bringt einen in einen Zustand der Ekstase im Leben.”

The intermediate Sodarshan Chakra Kriya game

The intermediate steps

… are meant for those who already can do SCK but came here for clarity, affirmation and inspiration.

If you are a beginner, please do claim all 9 previous cards of the beginner’s course first.

And understand: The reason why you should do each step and not more, is because you slowly have to build up your stamina.

Like in body-building, it is not about lifting high weights,
but always to lift a little more than you could before,
because that builds muscles without tearing them.
In the same way you are building up your aura in this course.

Believe me: I tried and failed for 20 years to push myself to the highest level – only to fail hundreds or probably even a thousand times; so you can learn from my mistakes and avoid tremendous suffering by following my unorthodox recommendation here!

Someone who already can do 20 minutes 5 times weekly for example, can continue to do their practice, but on the usual days off, instead of not practicing, do just 3 minutes to fulfil the 3-minute levels, and then move on in this course or game.
The rule of thumb is: Always only claim the level of the least time you did in that period.

And if you, for example have done 73 days of SCK for 3-15 minutes,
* then you have already done the 40 days to claim card 8,
* and are 33 days into card 9 already.
All you have to do then is to add 47 days of a minimum of 3 minutes daily and you will have claimed the first 120 days of all three 3-minute levels and therewith the card “Fortune“.
(If things get hard, don’t even try to do more than 3 minutes, but stick to your daily practice.)

I know that you may want to speed up your practice – I myself did even build it up to 2.5 hours within the first two weeks,
but my downfall was that I wasn’t warned by Y.B. and therefore gave up about 50-60 days into it.
Would he have told me to fall back initially to 3 minutes, then 11, 22 & 31 minutes, I would have kept going – maybe only would have done 3 minutes for the second half of the first 120 days, but I would have kept going.
Hence – do as much as you want, but reserve the right to fall back on your level’s minimum time.

The key here is patience and completion of all steps, preferably in order.

Once you had enough of your karmic suffering and feel the need to cut through the slime of your worldly entanglements you may walk the fast path by choosing to do a Tibetan retreat time of 3 years, months, weeks and days, whilst building up, plus 1000 days of a tenth of a day, which Sikhs call a Dasvand.
Those 6-7 years it will take you, reflect a full Cabalistic cycle in which you will have gone through all personality aspects:
1. year: Sun (personality),
2nd year: Moon (emotions),
3rd year: Mars (energy),
4th year: Mercury (communication),
5th year: Jupiter (spirituality),
6th year: Venus (love) and
7th year: Saturn (duty).
If you don’t believe in the Kabbalah, know that our weekdays run exactly according to it (as you can see especially in the french names),
and the biblical Genesis of the 7-day creation of the world simply reflects those qualities.

(That method is what I currently do – with some needed pauses in between, so it even takes me longer.)

You might think that you are not capable of pulling that through
(so your mind will fool you into thinking that you wouldn’t want to do it),
but it is easier than you thought, because the trick is to take breaks after each step, and therewith make space for your other personality-trades which also need attention.

The only steps you shouldn’t take breaks in between are
* the three 3-minute levels
* and the two 11-minute levels,
because they add up to 120days each, and if you break those,
you have to restart those levels all over again without being able to use your previous levels.

In order to accelerate the 28 year long slow path mentioned in the beginners course, I came up with a simple method to collect all the steps, Yogi Bhajan taught about meditation times, and lock in each of them like a ratchet wheel.


Once you accomplished 40, 90, or 120 days of each level, you will have secured it into your personality and be able to start at that level anytime again – even after a long break, so that nothing will be lost.

Let’s start with an easy step: Just do 40 days of 3 minutes only and you will gain the card. (Self-)Adjustment or Justice.

Everyone can do this – even if you didn’t get around to meditate the entire day there is always a way to squeeze in this short time.

You may tick of any step you already did in the past, but you must have completed all steps before moving on to the advanced level.

3 minutes affect
the electromagnetic field,
the circulation,
and the stability of the blood

After a daily practice for 40 days,
any negative habits that block you from the expansion a yoga kriya makes possible,
will be broken.

A transformational example is Jesus, who went for 40 days into the desert, experienced worldly temptations and after resisting them came back transformed.

Without breaking the routine yet, extend your daily practice to 90 days.
This is difficult, so to give yourself an incentive, by adding one more minute every week until you reached 10 minutes.
But even if you stuck to the minimal 3 minutes daily only, you can claim The Hermit
for being able to withdraw into your own world by meditating daily.

A daily practice over 90 days
will establish a new habit in your conscious and subconscious minds.
It will change you in a very deep way.

People who already can practice longer times, instead of skipping this step should dedicate 3 minutes out of their normal meditation time to a total focussed state of mind.
(Simply set a second alarm 3 minutes before the end of your meditation and instead of “sitting out” the last minutes impatiently, doing them in an earnest way, which might bring a surprising addition of insights).

Between 50 to 90 days is where I failed most times so far.
~~~
Assuming that you also will fail some steps a few times on this road,
don’t gloss over it in denial,
but restart the entire step from scratch again, because you must prove to yourself that you are up to it.
Believe me, it makes a huge difference, because subconsciously each cheat is nagging on your sense of accomplishment.

I once did restart the entire 120 days of 31 minutes, only because I failed on day 119 (I am not exaggerating: I really had a crisis).
If you failed, you didn’t loose, because
Honesty to yourself will build your sincerity!

As an additional consolations prize, for each time you failed,
you can take one of the 8 cards of the beginner’s course:

This way even failures are turned into a success of building up your personal collection.

Still don’t take a breake yet!
After you did spend so much effort it would be a shame to stop now, because it is quite easy  to complete the last month and turn the 90 days into 120 days.
You only have to do 3 minutes on bad days, and can do up to 10 minutes on good ones. Don’t do it for more than 10 minutes, because else the kriya can bring up so much that you may throw in the towel.

You can feel fortunate for being able to sit now up to 10 minutes,
because you earned the card #10: Fortune, or Wheel of Fortune

A daily practice for 120 days will confirm the new habit of consciousness created; and its positive benefits get integrated permanently into your psyche.

You may ask yourself why the first three steps and the following two are separated when you have to do them in one go anyway, but that is for you to learn to know about the time-lengths of 40,90 & 120 days and can observe yourself what the effects of those are; and also to ensure that you did claim a card, even if you failed once or twice. Now can take a break.

Before moving on, best is to choose a continuing date, which is of symbolic value to you
(such as a new moon, birthday or new years eve for example).

First of all this gives you inner strength to go with the flow, and secondly it serves well for you to remember the beginning of your meditation-practice.

(I needed an entire year for those steps above, because I failed at the critical half-time of 60 days twice and each time had to restart it from the beginning).

11 minutes begin to change the nerves and the glandular system

Now go straight for the difficult 90 days of 11 minutes and meanwhile slowly build it up to 21 minutes. By proving that you have the Strength to do so,
you will get the card 11.

Most people can do 11 minutes easily, so they may be impatient to move on to a higher level straight away, but I urge you to do step after step, because you first have to consolidate this level firmly.

Instead of pushing yourself, rather enjoy the freedom you still have, because later it will get very difficult.
Also: by collecting each card you gain a sense for accomplishment and therewith confidence.

This step is easy again:
Withouth taking a break from the exercise before, simply continue the 11-21 minutes for one more month, until you reached 120 days.

For completion of those, you get The Hanged Man
, because you now start to “hang” up your ego bits by bits.

That’s why I tell suicidal people:
“Go for it!
But instead of killing your body,
kill your ego!
This way you will literally kill two birds with one stone: 1. gain a new life now and
2. loose fear of death also.

And this, again, is the reason for you not doing more than those recommended times, because doing too much too early can throw you into a heavy crisis!

(Just read my bio here, in which I post my epic downfall due to a too early deconstruction of my ego.)

Just for your comparison:
Because I did fail again, 1-3 times, those two above steps took me yet another year to complete.
So enjoy a break from your self-development now, because you have earned it!

22 minutes balance the three minds (positive, negative, and neutral) and they begin to work together.

Since you now know the drill, now, simply skip the 40&90 days, and go straight for 120 days of 22minutes, whilst building it up to half an hour.

Whenever you start a long period there is a hesitation, so the beginning is the most difficult time. The mind plays tricks and tells us that after half a week “just 3,4 days are lost” when taking a break. To get through that point is difficult.

For doubling up your meditation time and your efforts to do 120 days straight, you get the saturnic (duty) card, Death (of false energies).

Now you can take a well deserved break again and enjoy your free time without having to meditate and confronting your self!

I actually did not know of this step at the time,
so after a 4 months-walk, I restarted, in order to do a 1000 days continuing to build up from that level onwards.

31 minutes allow the glands, breath, and concentration to affect all the cells and rhythms of the body. It lets the psyche of the meditation affect the tattwas (elements) and all layers of the mind’s projections.

Now do 120 days of 31 minutes – this seems a lot, but as you probably did experience yourself: Each step is equally difficult, because it is new.
However – up to this step many people have done it, so you can too.
Meanwhile you can build it up every 4 days by one minute, until you can do around an hour. For having had the stamina to complete the intermediate course, you get the Card: Art, or Temperance

Congratulations – you now completed the intermediate course – the level where most people are stuck at!

In your time you can move on to the advanced course, but first enjoy a proper break, because the times of pure contemplation often yield the most interesting results.

This step took me 1-1.5 years because in between I walked along the Danube for 4 months.

If you already can do half an hour daily, please leave a comment here or mail me and I will instantly post the advanced course.

Die Mittelstufe des Sodarshan Chakra Kriya Kurses

Die “mittelmässigen” Schritte …

… sind for diejenigen gedacht, die schon SCK praktizieren können, aber kamen, um Klarheit, Affirmationen und Inspirationen zu finden.

Um Dich einzuschwingen solltest Du alle vorherigen 9 Anfängerkarten zunächst sammeln.
Während das einen Anfänger 7 Monate dauern kan, kannst Du jede Karte in einem Tag einsammen, wenn Du schon täglich praktizierst.

Verstehe, dass es hier um das Langzeitvermögen geht, und nicht um schnellen Fortschritt.

Wie im Bodybuilding geht es nicht darum gleich große Gewichte zu heben, sondern immer wieder etwas mehr zu schaffen, als mal zuvor gemacht hat, denn das bilded Musken ohne sie zu zerren.

Gaube mir: Ich habe 20 Jahre lang versucht mich auf die höchste Stufe zu zwingen, nur um dann miserabel um so tiefer gefallen zu sein. Ich erspare Dir also Jahrzehnte an viel Leid, wenn Du meiner unorthodoxen Empfehlung hier folgst.

Jemand der schon 5 mal wöchentlich 20 Miniuten schafft, kann z. Bsiepiel anstatt den Tagen an denen er nichts tut, nur 3 Minuten machen, um damit die erste Stufe erreicht zu haben.

Als Daumenregel gilt: Sammle jeweils nur die Karte Deiner kleinsten Meditationszeit ein, also wenn Du während einer Meditationsperiode einmal nur 3 Minuten gemacht hast, dann hole Dir die 3 Minuten Karte, und nicht die höhere.

Und wenn Du zum Beispiel schon 73 Tage zwischen 3 und 15 Minuten täglich gemacht hast,
* dann hast Du schon die 40 Tage für die Karte 8 gemacht,
* brauchst nur noch 27 Tage für Karte 9,
* und hast die Karte 10 in 57 Tagen geschafft.

Ich weiss, dass man Anfangs schnell vorwärts kommen will – ich selbst hatte damals innerhalb von 2 Wochen 2,5 Stunden erreicht und konnte die für 50-60 Tage lange machen.
Das Problem war, dass Y.B. mich nicht gewarnt hatte, und ich deswegen ganz aufgegeben hatte. Hätte mir Jemand gesagt, dass ich das Recht habe, eine Weile lange nur 3 Minuten zu machen, hätte ich weiter praktiziert.
Also behalte Dir das Recht vor jederzeit auf das Minimum von 3,11,22,oder 31 Minuten zurück zu fallen, und ansonsten die Empfehlungszeiten des Kurses durch zu machen.

Der Schlüssel hier ist Geduld und Vervollständigung aller Schritte – möglichst in aufsteigender Reihenfolge.

Wenn Du von Deinem karmischen Leiden genug hattest, und es für Dich an der Zeit ist, den Schleim Deiner weltlichen Verstrickungen aufzulösen, dann kannst Du den schnellen Pfad gehen, indem Du 1000 Tage SCK, gefolgt von einer tibetischen Klausur von 3 Jahren, Monaten, Wochen und Tagen eines Zehnt des Tages machst (was bei Sikhs “Dasvand” heisst).

Diese 7 Jahre reflektieren einen ganzen kabbalistischen Zyklus, in dem Du durch alle Persönlichkeitsaspekte Aspekte gegangen sein wirst:
1. Jahr: Sonne (Persönlichkeit), 2. Jahr Mond (Emotionen), 3. Jahr Mars (Energie), 4. Jahr Merkur (Kommunikation), 5. Jahr Jupiter (Spiritualität), 6. Jahr Venus (Liebe), und 7. Jahr Saturn (Pflichterfüllung).

Wenn Du an die Kabbalah nicht glaubst, dann wisse, dass unsere Wochentage genau nach diesem Schema ablaufen, was übrigens der 7-Tage Schöpfungsgeschichte der Genesis entspricht.

Du magst glauben, dass Du nicht fähig wärst das zu machen (so dass Dein Geist Dich veräppelt zu denken, dass Du das nicht tun wolltest), aber es ist leichter als Du denkst, denn der Trick ist nach jedem Schritt Pausen zu machen, um für Deine andere Persönlichkeitsaspekten Raum zu machen, die auch Aufmerksamkeit fordern.

Wenn Du also den Anfänger Kurs gemacht hast, gönne Dir eine Pause, bis Du bereit bist, weiter zu machen.
Die einzigen Schritte zwischen denen Du keine Pause machen solltest sind die ersten drei 3-Minuten-Schritte, die insgesamt 120 Tage machen,
sowohl als auch die nächsten Zwei 11-Minuten Schritte, die in Einem gemacht werden sollten.

Um den langsamen Pfad des Anfängerkurses zu verschnellern habe ich eine Methode entwickelt, all die Schritte zu sammeln, die Yogi Bhajan über Meditationszeiten gelehrt hat, und diese wie ein Zahnenkranz zu arretieren.

Wenn Du die jeweils 40, 90, oder 120 Tage jeder Stufe gemacht hast, wirst Du diese in Deiner Persönlichkeit verankert haben und fähig sein dort weiter zu machen, wo Du aufgehört hast . Selbst wenn Du eine lange Pause hattest wird nichts verloren gehen.

Lass uns mit einem einfachen Schritt anfangen:
Mache 40 Tage lang nur 3 Minuten SCK, und Du wirst die Karte: (Selbst-)Regulierung oder Die Gerechtigkeit bekommen.

Jeder kannn das machen – selbst wenn Du den ganzen Tag lang nicht dazu gekommen bist zu meditieren kannst Du diese kurze Zeit noch schnell machen.

3 Minuten der Yoga-meditation beeinflussen das elektromagnetische Feld,
die Zirkulation;
und die Stabilität des Blutes.

Nach einer täglichen Praxis von 40 Tagen können negative Angewohnheiten, die Dich von der Erweiterung der Yoga Übung zurückhalten, aufgelöst werden.

Ein Transformationsbeispiel dafür ist Jesus, der 40 Tage lang in die Wüste ging, weltliche Versuchungen verspürte, und nachdem er diesen widerstanden hat als transformierter Mensch zurück kam.

Ohne diese Routine zu unterbrechen, erweitere Deine tägliche Praxis auf 90 Tage

Das ist schwer, weshalb
Du Dir den Anreiz geben kannst, jede Woche eine Minute mehr zu machen, bis Du 10 Minuten geschafft hast.

Du kannst dann die Karte Der Eremit dafür bekommen, dass Du fähig bist, Dich beim Meditieren in Deine eigene Welt zurück zu ziehen.

90 Tage täglich zu praktizieren wird eine neue Gewohnheit in Dein Bewusstsein und Unterbewusstsein integrieren.
Das wird dich auf eine sehr tiefe Art und Weise ändern.

Leute, die schon länger meditieren können, sollten, anstatt diesen Schritt zu überspringen die letzten drei Minuten ihrer Praxis einem totalen Fokus widmen.
(Benutze dazu einen zweiten Alarm, der 3 Minuten vor Deinem geplanten ende ertönt, denn anstatt Deine Normalzeit am Schluß in Ungeduld “abzusitzen” kannst Du aus einer kurzen ernsten und aufrichtigen Zeit noch viel mehr an Erkenntnissen rausholen.

Mache jetzt immer noch keine Pause!

Nachdem Du so Viel investiert hast, wäre es schade jetzt aufzuhören, denn es ist ziemlich leicht noch den letzten Monat zu machen, um die 90 Tage in 120 zu verwandeln.

Alles, was Du tun musst, ist an schlechten Tagen 3, und an guten 10 Minuten zu machen.

Übe noch nicht länger als 10 Minuten, denn dieses Kriya (diese Übung) kann ansonsten so viel Unterbewusstes hoch bringen, dass Du das Handtuch schmeissen könntest.

Dafür, dass Du jetzt bis zu 10 Minuten sitzen kannst, bekommst Du die Karte #10 Glück, oder Das Rad des Schicksals

Eine tägliche Praxis über 120 Tage wird Deine neue erschaffenes Bewusstsein konsolidieren, und die positiven Vorteile werden permanent in Deiner Psyche verankert.

Du magst Dich fragen, warum die ersten drei und darauf folgenden zwei Stufen getrennt sind, wenn sie doch am Stück gemacht werden sollten.
Das ist, erstens um Dir die unterschiedlichen Zeitlängen nahezubringen und selbst zu beobachten, was sich in diesen 40,90 & 120 Tagen tut;
und andererseits, damit Du Dir jeweils eine Karte gesichert hast, auch wenn Du es nicht gleich beim ersten oder zweiten mal geschafft hast 120 Tage am Stück zu machen. Aber jetzt kannst Du dir eine Auszeit nehmen.

Bevor Du weiter fortfährst ist es gut, wenn Du Dir ein symbolisches Datum auswählst, (wie z.Bsp ein Geburtstag, Neumond oder Neujahresanfang).

Das gibt Dir erstens innere Kraft, und zweitens kannst Du Dich dann später besser an Deinen Meditationsanfang erinnern.

(Ich habe ein ganzes Jahr für die obigen Schritte benötigt, weil ich zweimal bei den kritischen 60 Tagen versagt hatte, und dann nochmals ganz von vorne anfangen musste.)

11 Minuten fangen an die Nerven und Dein Drüsensystem zu verändern.

Jetzt mache gleich am Stück die schwierigen 90 Tage der 11 Minuten und baue inzwischen Deine Meditationszeit bis auf 21 Minuten auf.

Indem Du Dir beweisst, dass Du Die Kraft hast, das zu machen, bekommst Du die Karte gleichen Namens.

xDie Meisten können 11 Minuten leicht machen, weshalb sie ungeduldig diesen Schritt überspringen wollen, aber ich empfehle strengstens diesen Schritt zu machen, um Deine Praxis zu verfestigen!

Jedes Haus braucht ein gutes Fundament, um später solide stehen zu können.

Anstatt Dich jetzt selbst zu drängen, genieße lieber die Freiheit, die Du jetzt noch hast, denn später wird es sehr schwer werden.
Außerdem bekommst Du beim Sammeln dieser Karte ein Gefühl der Verfollständigung und damit auch eine Selbstsicherheit.

Dieser Schritt ist wieder leicht:
Fahre einfach ohne Pause zum vorherigen Schritt Deine 11-21 Minuten einen weiteren Monat fort, bis Du die 120 Tage zusammen hast.

Für die Vervollständigung dieser Stufe bekommst Du Der Gehängte
, weil Du jetzt anfängst Dein Ego Stück für Stück zu erhängen.

Deswegen sage ich zu Selbstmordgefärdeten: Tu es!
Aber anstatt Deinen Körper umzubringen , töte Dein Ego!
Auf diese Art schlägst Du sprichwörtlich zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe:
1. bekommst Du jetzt ein neues Leben, und
2. verlierst Du auf diese Art auch die Angst vor dem Tod, weil Du über ihn hinaus Deine Seele veredelt hast.

Und das ist auch ein Grund, warum Du nicht mehr als in jeder Stufe angesagt meditieren sollst, denn ansonsten kann Dich SCK in eine tiefe Krise stürzen!

Nur für Deinen Vergleich: Weil ich erneut ein bis dreimal versagte habe ich diese zwei obigen Schritte mehrmals neu gemacht, so dass das mich mindestens ein Jahr gedauert hat bis ich es geschafft hatte.
Genieße also danach eine Pause von Deiner Persönlichkeitsarbeit, denn Du hast Sie verdient!

22 Minuten balancieren die drei Geisteszustände (den positiven, negativen, and neutralen), so dass sie anfangen zusammen zu arbeiten.

Da Du inzwischen das Muster erkennst, können wir ab jetzt die 40&90 Tages-stufen überspringen und gleich 120 Tage von 22 Minuten machen, während Du langsam auf eine halbe Stunde aufbaust.

Wann immer man eine lange Phase wie diese 4 Monate anfängt, dann zögert man, weshalb es am Schwierigsten ist, anzufangen.

Zudem spielt uns unser Intellekt Streiche, indem er nach einer halben Woche sagt: “nur 3-4 Tage sind verloren, wenn ich jetzt nochmal aufhöre”.
Diesen Punkt zu überwinden ist auch schwierig.

Dafür, dass Du Deine Meditations-zeit verdoppelt hast, und die 120 days in einem Zug durchziehst, hast Du Dir die saturnische (Pflichterfüllungs)Karte Der Tod verdient, die den Tod von falschen Energien und Unaus.

Du kannst jetzt wieder eine wohlverdiente Pause nehmen und die freie Zeit ohne Meditation und Selbstfindung genießen!

Derzeit wusste ich übrigens noch gar nichts von dieser Stufe und habe die deswegen nachdem ich schon 1-2 Schritte weiter war nachgeholt.

31 Minuten erlauben den Drüsen, dem Atem, und der Konzentration alle Zellen und Rythmen des Körpers zu beeinflussen.
Dann wird die Psyche der Meditation die Tattwas (Elemente) und alle Schichten der Geistesprojektionen beeinflussen.


Mache jetzt 120 Tage lang 31 Minuten.
Das scheint viel zu sein, aber wie Du inzwischen vielleicht schon selbst erfahren hast:
Jeder Schritt ist gleich schwer, weil er neu ist.

Wie dem auch sei, bis zu diesem Schritt haben es viele erreicht, also wirst Du das auch können.

Währenddessen kannst Du (nur falls Du Dich stark fühlst) alle 4 Tage eine Minute mehr machen bis Du ungefähr eine Stunde schaffst.

Dafür, dass Du das Durchhaltevermögen dafür aufgebracht hast, bekommst Du die Karte “Kunst”, oder Die Mäßigkeit (die es ja braucht, um solch eine lange Zeit durchzuhalten).

Gratuliere – Du hast jetzt die Mittelstufe durchgangen, an der die Meisten hängen bleiben!

Wann immer es Dir passt kannst Du zum fortgeschrittenen Kurs weiter gehen, aber genieße erst eine gute Pause, denn die Zeiten reiner Kontemplation bringen oft die interessantesten Resultate.

Der letzte Schritt hat für mich 1-1,5 Jahre gedauert, weil ich zwischen drin 4 Monate lang die Donau entlang gewandert bin.

Falls Jemand all diese Schritte schon getan hat oder schon einige Zeit mindestens eine halbe Stunde täglich meditieren kann,
oder schon länger als 5 Jahre SCK macht, dann hinterlasse hier bitte einen Kommentar oder kontaktiere mich, damit ich den fortgeschrittenen Kurs hier einstelle.

Und wer etwas an die Gemeinschaft zurück geben will,
möge hier seine Erfahrungen mit uns Allen teilen, um Anderen zu helfen.

More Self-Aware, Less Social?

Jen puts here into great words what I just experienced:

I am on the longterm meditation Sodarshan Chakra Kriya project/experiment which does make me more and more reclusive, except for this wordpress blog where I release all my insights and self-reflections; plus a handful of mail contacts.

Last month I did reactivate an old twittter account, and soon became involved in a frenzy of rather meaningless smalltalk;
until one small misunderstanding did suck me into a spiral of a witch-hunt, I only could get out of by closing my account.

I also watched “The great hack” and realised that social media nowadays is overrun by bots who instigate hate in order to influence world-politics to that extend that entire countries are shaped.

The problem is the anonymity which does bring out the worst in people under the illusion not to be seen,
whilst in fact everything is analysed to build profiles,
which then are used malevolently.

Smartphones (apart from being spied upon every location and word we exchange)
are a tool to escape society in contempt for humanity,
whilst jumping from the fire of irl interactions into the frying pan of superficial ego-polishing at the expense of sincerity.

~~~

One evening, when I was walking for 4 months from Germany to Bulgaria, only with my backpack and a tent;
a Bulgarian put me up at his place only to sit in front of F***book for the rest of his evening;
instead of having used the opportunity to hear the adventures of my hike, or the differences of our cultures.

In the 70s there was a great political awareness; but since then it developed into Orwell’s “1984”, or the Carpenter movie “they live”, where people see the world merely through their distorted glasses of consumerism.

~~~

Since self-development is such a slow path,
and people become very aggressive when asked to question their luxury lifestyle,
the best we can do is to work on ourselves with dedication and persistence to become as calm and content as possible when the shit hits the fan.

Meditation games to counteract boredom

To bridge the gap I first offer a short explanation what Meditation is, and then give you some ideas for games which make it more fun to grow into it:

Ok, so we have the two kinds of people: The ones who propagate meditation and the ones who hate it.

The problem is that all Meditators convey is “do it”, which does not explain at all why we should sit around and ‘wait’ for the end.
To a real down to earth person meditation must justified seem like a total stupid waste of time without any hard graspable effects.

First of all, Meditation is not a mere waiting in the sense of sitting out the moment in order to ‘kill’ time.
(If it would be possible to kill time, we wouldn’t get bored, would we?)

Meditation is the process of putting a temporal fence around your monkey-mind or a round pen around your internal wild horse to calm it down.
Many try to force their horse to sit still within that fence, but that makes meditation a killer.
My first meditation teacher was such a guy and I ended dropping it altogether.

Then a much more wise and gentle vietnamese Buddhist monk told me:
“Simply let your mind run out, until it is exhausted and calms down itself”.

But how can you let your fire-horse-mind calm down?

By not putting oil into the flames of your constant flood of new ideas.
For example, if you are sitting in meditation and think: “I have to go shopping afterwards”, then pit that thought into your own virtual patient waiting room and simply say: I deal with it later – “next please!”.

I can give you an example how this doesn’t work, and then you know what not to do:
If you want to quiet your mind and I tell you “don’t think of a pink elephant!”, what does come into your mind? Of course a pink elephant. So don’t fight against specific issues, but let everything fade out naturally.

This, btw, is also the best way to deal with malevolent trolls: Don’t fight against them but as they say: “Don’t feed the trolls!”, (especially not the worst ones, which are the ones within your own mind.)

There is a huge resistance in you not wanting to face the moment and that tricks you into solving worldly important issues, such as “if I have to go shopping later, what will my shopping list be?”. This is how you put oil into the flame

A nice way is to remember your self-worth:
That you are just having a few “Me-only”-minutes and shouldn’t spoil them with your shopping list.
Remember: What is more important, the divine you or the shopping?
The shopping should serve you, and not you the shopping list.

Most people don’t treat themselves with the dignity they deserve, but do it for their lover. So simply remember: Would you treat someone you deeply love and only see for 15 minutes before flying of for the rest of the day with non-attention? And would you like to be treated this way? So give to your divine self what it deserves!

As a rule of thumb for the length: Consider when you first learned and practiced meditation. From that day on add a virtual second to each next day, meaning after a year you should be able to meditate 6 minutes, after two years 12 minutes and after a decade it could be possible for you to meditate for an entire hour (but you don’t have to – rather do 15 minutes than none).
(Of course you will have breaks in between, but this is a guidline, which time-length to get back to, once you stopped it for a while.)

It is btw more effective to do every day 10 minutes than once a week 70 minutes, because your mind does not have to rest as your body does but needs daily vitamins of your medi.

But then there still is the dreadful time-length 😮

This is a bummer, because there is only so much patience, before your inner monkey gains consciousness again and starts rebelling.

Ways to train your animal-mind to become patient, is to feed it intermittently with little rewards by honouring its limits.
One reward is to know how much you did accomplish yet, so you can set yourself two timers: one for your fiery monkey, and one for your goal.

Let’s say you have 5 minutes patience but want to train yourself up to 20 minutes, so what you do is to set yourself a timer for 20 minutes and one for 5 minutes. And then start them both simultaneously at the begin of your mediation.

After 5 minutes the first alarm goes of and you may end your meditation then. And if you had a good day and were surprised about time flying by, then, sit a little bit longer, and as soon as you get impatient, quit and look at your second 20 minute timer to remember how many minutes you did manage to meditate altogether.

If you found it easy 3 times in a row to do 5 minutes, then increase that timer to 6 minutes and see how things go from there. You get the picture.

If you ask about what kind of meditation is best for you,
simply choose the one you feel drawn to
(whether it is because it is fun or because you respect it most).
Over the years your approach will change automatically.

The most important step in the beginning is only to put a foot into the door of spirituality.

Another question is:
Am I allowed to look at the timer to see how much suffering I still have ahead of myself?

My recommendation is: Put that timer out of sight (like turning it around), because if it is in front of your eyes, as soon as you open them, you inevitably will have seen the remaining time, which you probably did not intent to.

Then when you really want to know the time, first estimate how many minutes you did sit already, or how many you estimate to be left.
This might take a while in itself but is a great exercise for your temporal intuition. Always estimate the time before looking at the clock, because this way you create your reality, else you get the feeling of leaving it up to fate.

Initially you want to check often how much time passed,
but there comes a time when you want to see it only as late as possible,
because you learned, that if you looked to early, you only got frustrated about having so much time left to meditate.

Another aspect is denial of this moment:

It is amazing how many ways we come up with to suddenly make our minds busy – from calculating things, over worrying up to excited plans of the future. But ultimately you will realise that all those issues are prosponable and actually best to be solved straight after meditation, because you did prepare your mind to focus.

So enjoy the time afterwards and simply hang around – it is usually the best time in which you get the most ideas and insights. And don’t let any non-meditator force you straight into immediate action, because you deserve your contemplation-time – just consider it to be a (most pleasant) part (and reward) of meditation.

OMG (Om, I, God) – the better half

The god-experiment part 2

In part 1 I told you about the horizontal intellectual axis between
Atheist / Agnostic <——————– vs —————–> orthodox Believer

To explore the vertical intuitive Axis (which I will explain at the end),
I seriously dedicated myself to the nebulous ‘divine’ (for 4 months now and ongoing)
as described by an Iranian mystic of the 13th century;
to explore the subject in the most global and versatile way possible:

  1. Putting god to a critical test from an Agnostic point of assuming nothing,
  2. following Gnosticism, which originated in Hellenistic Judaism
  3. inspired by an Islamic account of 9 months divine experience
  4. I used wisdoms I found in the Sikh ‘bible’ Siri Guru Granth Sahib,
  5. which is based on a combination of Hindu yoga techniques, such as prana yoga or Jalandhala Bhanda,
    implements a Bhakti tradition of worshipping the divine,
  6. and comes close to the Christian Jesus prayer,
  7. with a the Buddhist state of mind of non-attachment and exploring the absolute.

I did this by the means of a yoga-prayer-meditation, called Sodarshan Chakra Kriya.
Let’s first continue from part 1-3 on our journey through religions.

4. the Eastern intuitive path

The reason why ever more Westerners loose their faith in traditional religions and turn towards Eastern wisdoms, is that the Abrahamic religions lost their touch to spirituality and therewith merely offer the comfort of holding on to a straw of hope of being saved out of the misery of their suffering due to ignorance.

In India there was never a need for such a power struggle, between one or many gods, because from the beginning,
their broad range of believes, wisdoms and philosophies, allowed for thousands of deities, which do serve as manifestations of individual worship-needs or character trades, whilst above it all an unfathomable abstract higher intelligence called the OM was recognised .
Since Westerners couldn’t grasp that versatility, the British did put all directions, which did tolerate and embrace each other, into the box of one religion they called Hinduism.

Meanwhile in China:
Around the 4th century BC Daoism emerged, which taught Yin & Yang, and with a rich wealth in non-religious understandings of the universe, such as the Tao Te Ching, the fortune telling principles of the universe I Ching (which goes back to 1000 BC), and the medical Texts Neijing and Nanjing which are the foundations of traditional Chinese Medicine.

So Chinese culture proves that religion is not a necessity for our spiritual evolution.

5. Mysticism vs faith

Whilst in mainstream religions, the dogma of faith is usually a prerequisite of any bliss thereafter, the destruction of our intuitive faith, as described beforehand lead to secularisation, and its value being totally turned around:
Before the Age of Reason, which ironically is called ‘Age of Enlightenment’; intuitive ‘knowledge’ did take predominance over objective rationality. Since then objectivity is taken as a guaranty for truth.

Whilst this seems to be a progress, it came at a loss of the contact with our subconsciousness with detrimental effects:

The marginalisation of faith into the realm a subjectivism, which is overwritten by objective science led to a twist of the terminologies “faith” and “knowledge“.
Everything that we think to know by the means of science requires a believe in machines like micro- and telescopes, which we have to rely on for our knowledge of the micro- and macrocosm.

You may have just skipped over that sentence, but hold on and think for a second: What do you really KNOW and what do you BELIEVE? You might be surprised.
Nearly all scientific experiments (the ones which rely on machines), do require our belief in the accuracy of the correct display by those gadgets. So we believe in what our gadgets tell us, but don’t know our gut-feelings anymore.

The conspiracy theory about a flat-earth is a perfect example of the subconscious fight of scientific knowledge vs own intuition.
People lost contact with their own sense of reality , but also don’t trust the scientific dogmas anymore. So their egos rather create conspiracies, then admitting to themselves that they are simply lost and have to find new ways to reconnect to their self as well as to conduct science.

Another example of the loss in intuition is our chronological interpretation of time, which first was propagated on the clocks of church-towers. Whilst the division of time is practical, useful and today essential;
time, before clocks existed, did hot have today’s quantitative connotation, but was seen for its quality as a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ time and allowed to for the spiritual virtue of being ‘in the here and now’.
(Astrology, for example, is the science about the quality of time).

You can make an experiment and listen to contemplative music whilst looking at the time display – and then hide the display and continue listening. You then can sense time differently.
Here is a suitable song I once composed, which you can use for it:
(best listen with headphones or base-speakers)
Whilst it plays, keep moving your mouse over the video, then let go of your mouse and as the timeline disappears keep listening how the music affects you in a non-linear fashion. You can repeat this a few times over the duration of this song.

The Chinese Buddhist Huangbo Xiang from the 8th century did sum the difference between intellectual and intuitive understanding of ‘the divine’, which he did call ‘the absolute’ up brilliantly:

The substance of the absolute is inwardly, like wood or stone, in that it is motionless,
and outwardly like the void, in that, it is without bounds or obstructions.

It is neither subjective, nor objective, has no specific location, is formless and can not vanish.

Those who hasten towards it, dare not enter, fearing to hurdle down through the void, with nothing to cling to, or to stay their fall,
so they look to the brink in retreat.

This refers to all those who seek such a goal through cognition.

Thus – those who seek the goal through cognition are the many, [like hair on a cow]
while those, who obtain intuitive knowledge of the way are the few. [like horns on a bull]


And finally now I get to let you know how the non-intellectual mystical approach towards god did so far manifest for me:

In the entire 2.5 hours I sat, on average I usually only managed to fully focus for one tiny minute on this unfathomable abstract of god, which Sikhs call “Waheguru”.

First I clinged on focussing on the word “Waheguru”, and after 3 months, when my impatient refusal to focus on this (nearly annoying, because ungraspable) subject slowly dissipated, I started to be immersed in temporary fields of focus,
and after 4 months I sometimes descended into a state of trance which goes down the rabbit hole in different layers:

  1. Visual:
    Random archetypal images sometimes pop up (something spiritual beginners know from taking hallucinogenic drugs, or non-drug takers know from when not having slept up to the point of being severely over-tired).
    But the difference is that those are the same effects without dissolving my self, meaning that I am not prone to fate, carrying me wherever my subconscious just floats.
  2. Kinaesthetic:
    Deeper is the level in which I sense my electromagnetic energy-field expanding. You can imagine this field like your aura getting bigger. This has some mystical quality beyond intellectual morality. A neutrality which can be described in a dark way like Dracula or the Lord of the Ring at night in a castle surrounded by dragons, or in a light way as the majestetic serenity of huge angels (who often in the bible had to greet people with ‘fear not!’).
  3. Auditory:
    Thinking “Waheguru” for me is usually like hearing it in my brain. Only once within 25 years, I literally heared it out of my belly, meaning that my consciousness was literally centered.
  4. My eyes start to focus automatically towards the tip of the nose, which made me realise that the mention in the description of the Kriya were not meant as an instruction but as a description of the effect it has.
  5. The grainy picture you see when you simply close your eyes also gave a sense of an energy field surrounding me, like being in the midst of the vast universe of stars – at times the part in front of my eyes became brighter, either grey, white or blueish.
  6. Then a state of bliss and majestic serenity, occurs –
    yet again it can be compared to the relaxing aspect of smoking weed, but without that stupefying and numbing part.
    After experiencing it, I understood why highly spiritual evolved people don’t want to destroy that by engaging with others, whether to impress, nor to argue with them.
  7. Once I gave up an issue, to be solved by ‘the divine’. And due to letting this go, and allowing for literal “in-spiration”, this universal energy-field started to flow into instead of out from me and I realised that the expanding of my own aura in the previous points still was attached to an egocentric perspective of the world.
    I then learned why ‘the ego’ is shunned as a hinderance on the spiritual path.
  8. Other effects I felt was for example that my face somehow is much older than my body (and I am talking lifetimes here, not years).
  9. Longterm effects are:
    that over the years it took me to build up this exercise, I seem to have matured by one year within one month, so it corrected many discrepancies in me, which you can see in many people who are partly great and partly like a child.
  10. Overall there comes a deeper intuitive understanding of people which leads in a preventive course-correction before they even realise that I was on the way to annoy them.

Considering that those were fruits of just having been able to focus for one minute – imagine what can be possible to the ones who manage to focus throughout an entire session!

The similarity between the drug and the mystical experiences made me aware that (illegal as well as legal) drugs are only needed by the rigid minds who cling to their books and rules.
Think about it: The word “ad-diction” translates from Latin to “cling onto words”.
In German addiction means “Sucht“, which translated back into English as “seeking”.
So addictives actually often are people with a high spiritual potential who simply seek for something, their soul longs for, but society did not offer them yet.

I got a glimpse that as soon as someone manages to totally open up oneself for all the Qi, Prana, or energy literally miracles may happen.


However – the difficulty to accomplish that, is that we first have to ridden ourselves from any kind of egotistical self-definition, something I did work on for 25 years and just reach the brink of sensing that there is something beyond.

And the dilemma is that once we do open ourselves up for the universe,
all previously hidden worldly entanglements float in first.
So don’t expect results for quite a while – it could be decades to work through it;

But then again – at the same time, it only takes a minute of pure focus to really dive into a glimpse of an entire world which can be expected afterwards. The hearing ‘Waheguru’ from my belly was an experience within the very first month after just having accomplished to do the Kriya properly.

Even though I never had this experience anymore, this glimpse of clarity did show me that I am on the right path, and kept me going for more the remaining time of my life.

So my conclusion is that you can’t actively force to find god,
you can only allow the divine to flow right through you.

Is obvious to us that a group works best, if some small part does not take on a life of its own – whether it is a member of a community or some cells in your body. So the first step to empty oneself for the overall energy flowing in, out and through.
But that does by no means that you shan’t have the ambitions to be special, because every organ is unique and even must be it.
To bring this contradiction (of allowing to merge with the absolute versus living out your own life) together,
think of each organ needing the blood which flows through the entire body, whilst at the same time has to fulfil its own, and only its very own function – not the one of anyone else.

As promised, I close this article by telling you the difference between the intellectual horizontal,
and the intuitive vertical axis: If you take the A from ‘Agonisticism’, and the ‘v’ from ‘Believer’ as Arrows, to turn the axis like a dial clockwise, you end up with a new axis, …


Agnostic <———————- vs ———————-> orthodox Believer

… a second axis, which is not believers against non-believers anymore, but “experiencers” vs people who in latin are ‘at the word‘ (of their bibles) {as mentioned above = “ad-dicts”}.
