Carl JungWritten by Robert Bruce Baird
Carl Jung wondered if he might be crazy when he had visions of World War before first of these conflagrations in 20th Century came to pass. This made him a lot more desirous of understanding from whence his prophetic visions might have come as he continued to become one of most erudite and learned men of that century.
There are a lot of people who exhibit common sense (an all too rare thing) that understand it is what we DO that determines what we are; rather than what we say (!) we believe. Practicing random acts of kindness and sharing would go a lot further than trying to convince others that we know something we are only on verge of beginning to see. This principle or law is encompassed in saying of Magi called 'Right Thought=Right Action'. The practices of Tai Chi and qigong (pronounced 'chee-gong') work with energy that surrounds us and sustains us and our astral selves. In China it has a prehistoric origin that makes government want to stamp it out. This is kind of religion that focuses on personal transformation and healthful interactions with all around us. They say it differs from Yoga or Tai Chi in that it is less complex and requires less focus on breathing. This 'They' is Falun Dafa or Falun Gong. You should have heard about attacks on it in China and maybe you know it is spreading in America. The Chinese government is trying to extradite leader back to China. The heresy trials and Inquisitorial approaches of nations are still with us. 'Chhi', 'Qi', 'Pranha' and other names like 'cosmic soup' are really same thing as what limbo state and astral energy or auric bodies are made up of.
The benefits of looking inward for growth and purpose are much better than trying to get someone else to believe as you do. In his foreword to 'The Tibetan Book of Dead' with an Introduction by Lama Anagarika Govinda, Carl Jung made some excellent points. He says that we are visualizing these energies and spiritual dimensions according to our prevailing ethnic and cultural idioms. If we believe in Shiva or Jesus, Mohammed or Cernunnos then when we encounter energy that relates to these cultural images, that is what our mind translates to our conscious brain. Science can prove neurophysiological nature of these assertions now. It surely would cut a huge swath through a lot of ecclesiastical structure if everyone was to know we are all affected by same 'gods' with simply different stories and names. Ecumenicism is not (as Catholic Cardinal Biffi would like) just a dialogue between Christian denominations. It is a 'Brotherhood of Man' initiative that all of us must endeavour to bring to fruition. We are endeavoring to find best way to show how 'his'-story has stolen this once common perception that Falun Gong harkens back to, has taken us away from our soulful connection. The growth of man’s culture seems headed towards more of what is called connectivity or ‘Critical Mass’ through shared archetypes but manipulation of thought and development of counter-archetypes is causing a lot of confusion.
Words can killWritten by Jaya
You wake up early, do your morning chores, while brushing you take a glimpse and admire yourself at mirror hoping it to be most beautiful day, at same time enthusiastically brainstorming errands for day. You grab a bite of anything on table just to fill you up, not forgetting your morning tea. In no time you kiss your mom goodbye and you are out of house. In midst of traffic, your phone rings and you get a call from one of your favorite people, someone that has always been rhythm to your ears. She called to discuss about plans for next major event in your community, and both of you happen to come up with same ideas giggle at how similar you are and at peak of your laughter, she says something that strikes you deep down, perhaps highlight your weakness or emphasizes your character that you most inferior about. But you still laugh, not believing what she just said or meant, continue conversation as if nothing really happened. While struggling to forget her major insult, she attempts to make you feel better, however making it worse by saying, "But I really didn't mean that... ". Hmm..., now what are you supposed to think? Well, basically she just confirmed her statement.
