Baraka : A Way Of Life

Without words, cameras show us the world, with an emphasis not on "where," but on "what's there." It begins with morning, natural landscapes and people at prayer: volcanoes, water falls, veldts, and forests; several hundred monks do a monkey chant. Indigenous peoples apply body paint; whole villages dance. The film moves to destruction of nature via logging, blasting, and strip mining. Images of poverty, rapid urban life, and factories give way...

Osho Kundalini Meditation

Kundalini is not really meditation. It is just preparation. You are preparing your instrument. When it is ready, you stand in silence, then meditation starts. Then you are utterly there. You have woken yourself up by jumping, by dancing, by breathing, by shouting - these are all devices to make you a little more alert than you ordinarly are. Once you are alert, then the waiting. Waiting is meditation. Waiting with full awareness. And then it...

Why the Need to Fear?

Fear has existed in the world for the beginning of time and still humans cannot eliminate its existence. Certainly fear can be a positive force in certain situations, but generally it can be a very detrimental energy force. It can steer someone in the opposite direction of opportunity or safety. When viewed in a positive light, it can stop a person from doing something that can harm them emotionally, mentally, spiritually or physically. With...

Find Your Spiritual Balance: Keep Your Aura Bright

To keep your aura bright and clear, work with the chakra colors. Each day pick a color and confirm that you will pay attention throughout your day and work to balance the chakra that the color represents. Often, we subconsciously choose which chakra we should actively balance. The color of your clothes, the food choices you make throughout the day can be subtle hints that a certain chakra needs some attention. Pay attention to these signs they...

The Mystery of Inner Emptiness

Who are you inside? What is your name inside? How old are you inside? Are you male or female inside? When you start deeply looking inside, is anybody there that can be defined and identified? Do you think you are going to meet yourself as somebody you used to be in the outer world? In going inwards will you find someone there waiting for you?

How Does Reiki Heal Me?

Reiki is a branch of the holistic health and alternative medicine fields, originating in Japan almost 90 years ago. It involves the channeling of universal energy for the healing and benefit of living beings. If you are relatively new to this concept and find yourself asking the question, "How does Reiki heal me?" there are a few things you should know in order to better understand the effect and power of this healing energy.

Hell, as a place of eternal punishment, is not biblical

The human psyche is deeply scarred with the church's teaching of a physical place called hell, created by a God who intends to punish some individuals for eternity. As long as the church ignores the fact of reincarnation, a fictional hell remains the only means for God's justice to work itself out

What Does Chakra Healing Mean?

Traditional Hindu writings have often said that there are nearly 90,000 points of Chakra throughout every human body, but there are truly only seven extrmely important points of Chakra. These seven vital points of Chakra can be found from the bottom of the spinal cord all the way up to the top of the head.

Healing Through Zen

The whole world is medicine, what is the illness?” When some people suffer they take medication, others seek therapy, a few become students of Zen. Although much has been made of the connections between Zen and psychology, to really understand Zen healing, it is also necessary to be aware of what healing means psychologically. From the psychological point of view, emotional pain is a message from the unconscious that conflict has arisen...

Bardo-The Death Journey

The cycle of life, death and rebirth is the process of evolving our selves to higher and higher levels of consciousness and awareness. To fear death is a primordial instinct for the Western man. It is the supreme punishment we give our criminals and the worst we think could happen to someone is to die before their time.Working as a medium has given me some insight as to what goes on after the heart stops.

Taking the “Sting” out of Tantra

Even today, mention the word “Tantra” to people and ask them to comment on what comes to mind and you will get a cacophony of responses. Though you can be certain that they will all pertain to sex, in one form or another. At the present time, I find myself walking the Tantric path, having fully embraced its principles and techniques.

Breathing into Chakras ion

The flow of energy through the body can be blocked several ways. An illness or an injury can stop the flow. The seven chakra points within the body can also be a stopping point. To understand the techniques of chakra breathing as a tool for maintaining or achieving inner balance, one must know what chakras are and where they are located within the body. Each chakra point is represented by a different vibration, color, symbol, and even sound. To...

The similarities between Reiki and Yoga

Reiki and Yoga both focus on the movement of energy throughout the body and finding balance for the mind, body, and soul. In reiki that movement is aided by the Reiki master that becomes the vessel for the spirit guided movement of energy throughout the body. In yoga the movement of energy is taught by the yogi through poses, breathing techniques, and meditation. Experiencing reiki work allows the recipient to have energy work done to clear any...

A Scientific Understanding of Reiki

A scientific understanding of Reiki must provide some form of explanation for this ancient perspective. Until very recently, there was no scientific framework from which to view the Eastern philosophy that underlies Reiki Energy Healing. But now, thanks to recent advances within the sciences allowing Westerners to think outside the box of concrete Newtonian Theory, progressive sciences like String Theory, Unified-Field Theory, and Quantum...

How can you tell if there is a negative energy/spirit in your house?

Please read this question with an open- mind. I know this may seem far fetched, but about a year ago my fiance’ and myself moved into a house. Not long after we moved in, I started to develop severe depression. I can only explain it as an intense negative emotion, but mostly when I am at home. A feeling of complete sadness overwhelms me almost as soon as I walk in the door. About a year ago, one of my neighbors told us that the lady that...

Why Do People Use Fortunetellers and Psychics ?

People seek fortunetellers for many reasons. They want a quick fix to a problem they are having. They are hurting. They are vulnerable. They tend to be naïve and easily duped. They may be emotionally or psychologically incapable to see the root issues or deal with them. Or, they may be mentally lazy or depressed. They may simply be searching and a fortuneteller or psychic is an easy way to find answers.

Still the Mind of Mindless Chatter

You may be going, “Huh. What is she talking about?” I am talking about the endless Chatter that is constantly going on in our minds. How can you expect to hear from the gentle spirit of God when your mind is cluttered with constant self talk and oftentimes confusion? Buddha taught “It is not the words that are spoken; it is the silence between the words.” Silence is the key that opens the connection to the Divine Spirit/God. Of course it is easier said than done. Silencing the mind is one of the most difficult things to do. Many people meditate to get their mind quieter, but still find it extremely difficult. Some people go into retreats for years so that they can learn to quiet their mind. It is absolutely that hard to still the mind of mindless chatter. Your Exercise Try pausing between each thought and analyze that last thought you had and see if it was really important, of value, or needful in your life. When you do this you are visiting the space between your thoughts. When you can pay attention to your thoughts you will start noticing how much time you are wasting thinking about the past, present, and future. All you really need to do is be quiet and still for as many moments as you possibly can throughout the day and you will start noticing that many things that were important to you really have very little meaning. Amazing how unimportant most of our thoughts are. After having paused between thoughts you will become aware of how many of your thoughts were quite ridiculous. The things you were worried about a few minutes ago you start to see as not so important. Maybe you were worried about getting dinner prepared on time and if you would have enough for everyone. When you paused and look at your thoughts you realize dinner will get done and it will be enough for everyone. We worry sometimes over things that are really needless and this is the point of getting silent and learning to quiet your mind. You will find your prayers to the Divine Spirit/God will have a more profound meaning because of your silence, which will produce a true devotion and dedication to this miraculous Supreme Being.

"It is this watcher, this censor, which creates the sense that we need to control things, for we feel that if we were just to 'be,' to co-exist with the universe, we could not trust ourselves; things would not come out the way we want them to." (The Tao of Love )

The Power Of Now

This unique “The Power of Now” Review is founded on my experience and reading of the bestselling self-help book by Eckhart Tolle. But before we get into this “The Power of Now” Review, I wish to share a few personal observations about the expertise of living in the now and being present. Being present is probably probably the most alien ideas in the Western world. Especially in North America, there is so much focus on...

White and Black Magic

The Inexplicable Sexual Scent of God In You!

Most of us would agree that human beings are guided, controlled, dictated and governed by subconscious desires that we are ‘more than likely’ unaware. Not only are we ignorant of the significance attached to ‘all too obvious clues’, promptings, implications, distinctions, and surprising consequences but more importantly we, sometimes, [more often than not] ignore or deny much to our chagrin, those sensations which result in “weird feelings” as...

Advanced spiritual energy training or tachyon technology, what are tachyons?

Matter is energy converted and energy is matter converted back. There’s really nothing to difficult in understanding this concept. E=MC squared is the formula with E meaning energy, M meaning matter and C as a constant. Einstein gave us this formula and even school children with limited science background have heard of it. Tachyon energy is an entirely different matter. When scientist began to delve into the world of quantum physics, they...

Death as an Ally – How Shamans Perceive Death

In traditional wisdom and knowledge, life is a continuum that does not end at the moment of death. One of the most important traditional tasks of the seer, shaman, medicine man or woman is to assist people who are either dying or the spirits of those who have died to make the transition into great domain of consciousness. This body of practices is known as Psychopomp, from the Greek word psychopompos which literally means ‘conductor of souls’...

A Whiff of the Sacred Sensual Sexual Sublimely Innocent Artistic Feminine Spirit

MODE of Cosmic Therapy: Embracing the Embodiment of Sacred Scented Sexuality A sacred sensually seductive ethereal feminine energy exists in all of us. Whether we are presently residing in male or female form, matters not. What does matter is that we come to accept, integrate and embrace the illusive, fickle, changeable, irresistible, appealing, intuitive, sensitive, emotionally provocative, stimulating, restless, protective, suspicious, daring, confident, nurturing, engaging trickster, wise, alluring, magical, entertaining, scent full of passion, playful, innovative, creative, devious, fun loving, wild, sexually stimulating, capricious, mischievous, invigorating, intelligent, wickedly independent, unsettled, and unmistakably determined ruthless soul who inhabits our being. No need to try to argue for or against, defend, excuse or explain the idiosyncrasies associated, we KNOW we imbue these inexplicable characteristics. What to do with them is another story… The feminine energy (spirit) is no doubt, incalculably mysterious. Drawn like a moth to a flame, we can not resist her wooing, seductive ways. We are caught in her web of immaculately conceived sublimely sacred sensual sexual persuasive decoys. We feel the stirringly passionate throbbing of our soul’s yearning for earth experience in a myriad of ‘ways and means’ that we must succumb to in order to evolve and transcend. Surrender is the key word here. Surrender to that which we don’t, can’t, will never be able to understand; in all of our exhausting endeavors, baffling romances, invaluable relationships and complicated partnerships. We stumble blindly onto the path of varied experience without pre-digested guile or pretense at her beckon call. Otherwise, how can we possibly explain our enchantingly deceptive involvements? It’s the bewitchingly captivating gorgeous unfathomable divine capitulated surrendered beauty of immeasurable graceful sexual energy found in our soul’s pleasurable innocence. Nothing or no one else compares or even comes close to its summit of excellence. We crave her warm magnificent erotically soothing embrace! We indulge ourselves in celestial orgasmic fantasies of sublime magnificence of god’s gentle forceful artistic creative pulsation. We instinctively know we are impregnated with her alluringly hypnotic glare and will not be denied. We have come to earth to explore the dark inner regions of transcendent bliss found only through the expedient call to answer her wooing enticing eyes. She catches us all unaware! The moment we meet the ONE; we unconsciously receive her commanding instructions to obey. How else would we be attracted to the other IF this were not the case? Our innate cosmic antennas immediately recognize and respond to the receptively sweet charming scent of her enthralling sensual presence. The feminine spirit will tie us to her heart and then break it at will IF the divine plan so designates. The feminine energy dwells in and is comprised of psychic intuitive mystifying sexually motivating vibrating electrical charges. All of which run on automatic pilot. These electrical chemical charges operate in the body by and through scent-filled (activated) receptors. [More than 10,000 in the nose, alone] In other words, you carry within you a specifically elected fragrance of the divine which attracts what and whom you will interact with. No two ways, ifs, ands, or buts about it. You will get involved in those singular circumstances, people, places and things that you are suppose to. Deliberately guided through the power of undeniable scent, you will experience the situation. This irrefutable incomprehensible transaction of comparable relating appears to take place in the human brain, but must be controlled from another level of reality. It’s all a matter of cosmically coded compatibility! It is absolutely impossible for you to control who and what you will or will not be attracted to. You KNOW that!!! The sanctified blessed feminine energy will do with you as she pleases to meet her own cosmically devised ends. Again, this overwhelmingly sensually scented energy is located in both male and females, alike. The male energy, though, ‘naturally and conveniently’ dominates, controls, analyzes, logically deduces, reasons, defends, objectifies, prepares, fights, anticipates, and conquers is in need of receiving, working with and acknowledging the feminine restless instigated abode within. Unless the subtle force is dealt with, no peace of mind, balance or serenity can be had. The sacredly sensual sexually explicit artistic feminine energy is so earth shatteringly powerful that most often times, unimaginable hurt, harm, damage, shame, regret, remorse, jealous rages, bitter break-ups, underhanded schemes, incomprehensible shams are brought about due to its all consuming blanket of uncontrolled possessive desire. Tragedy results from trying to conceal, repress, and deny her stunning life-infused exciting evolving force. In other words, you may enjoy her, but you will never, ever domesticate her. IF you spend unwarranted time, effort, money in pursuit of possessing and controlling her, you will fall into the deep end (for a while) and possibly not be able to function for a season. This wonderfully splendid sacred sensual sexual artistic energy is to be used to enhance and not escape from this life. The ancient scriptures declare: “My grace is sufficient for thee.” The omnificent creator desires for us to receive life abundantly, pleasurably and creatively. (Whatever and however you personally interpret that suggestive statement depends upon your previous early environmental conditioning and educational background (language emphasized) and religious programming) Nevertheless, we are breathing energetic sensual beings that use our oscillating scent radiating bodies to do what we will. We are in the delicately flawless prominent position to praise, celebrate, offer continual thanks, while encased in human body. With our personal lives endowed with numerous blessings, a reverently instilled life full of joy and unending bliss precedes our every step. “Oh! Sweet Intoxicating Flavor of Divinity’s Sacred Sensual Sexual Artistic Passing; we recognize thee by thy influx of befitting rapturous joy. Thou hast granted us the occasion to be thine crown of creation. Thou hast impregnated us with thy sublime all encompassing elation.” We are filled to capacity with loving awareness and conscious appreciation. We struggle with the overwhelming happiness we have been saturated with. We whine, pine, argue, meddle, secretly hide, conform and deny our innocent sacred sexual stirrings. In other words, we don’t know how to feel good without feeling bad that we do. It sounds crazy but it’s true. We have a hard time when presented with sensual stirrings. We don’t really know how we are ‘supposed to act’. But, the ‘rumbling tumbling bumbling’ erotic movements continue to swirl within. It was the Master Jesus who also said, “I will come to the door and knock. Whosoever hears me and lets me in, I will sup with him…” (Paraphrased) Is there a more pleasurable, meaningful and unforgettable occasion than sharing a meal with someone you love (except for sexual intimacy, of course)? And, it’s through the blending of the delectably alluring smell of the food in addition to its appealing presentation that we are attracted to and consume our choice of meals. So, too, is our sacred sensual sexual artistic lives consecrated and designed. Take a deep erotic breath and enjoy the presence of the divine femininity within you. Invoke her, love her and cherish her sweet fragrance all the days of your mortal life.

Go to your Womb !

The setting for this retreat was pure and stunning, a beautiful converted farmhouse of Boise-Le-Comte just a few miles away from the famous Magdalene Monastery in Orval, Belgium. Padma and Anaiya Aon Prakasha, from whom the womb teachings have originated, are a very special couple indeed. On first meeting there is an air of “freedom” about them both that is almost iridescent – that hard to describe rare quality that you see and know and feel, but can’t quite put into words. They are a powerfully loving couple, and to be in their company is to be awash with unconditional love, compassion and truth. Not knowing much about what I was about to embark upon, some of the lines in the flyer for Womb Wisdom had attracted me, such as: “In the past and in present-day indigenous traditions, women have known that the womb houses the greatest power a woman possesses: the power to create on all levels. Yet today we have forgotten that. Why?” and “The Womb leads us to the seed of our being, our first creative spark. It invites us to be re-born, regenerated and resurrected. It is a cave of pure creativity where we are the creator. The Womb is your inner council where you will discover your doctor, sage, confidant, decision-maker, best friend, muse and artist. When you realise this, you can begin to create within your own womb, placing projects and hearts desires within its field to be birthed and manifested into the world.” This seemed to call to something ancient within me, stirring the questions “There must be more to the womb than having children?” and “Is this the missing piece in the art of manifestation?” and “What exactly is it that we women have forgotten?” So as we moved into the retreat intensive, I was very intrigued to find the answers to these burning questions. Padma opened with some powerfully moving words speaking of why this work is so important for women and men, explaining for women, that the opening of the Womb dissolves the need for external authority and leads to the birthing of a new and more liberated consciousness. It is like tapping into our own guru and making a reconnection to the Web of Life. It’s about feeling and intuiting where to go in life and where life wants YOU to go. The most important thing about Womb Wisdom is that the voice you feel is your Higher Self is actually You, or the voice of God / Source within you. And for the men attending, an equally powerful and truthful disclosure on why men are birthed through the womb; first from their biological mother and then from their partner and that all men are looking for this womb connection on some level, searching to dissolve the connection from their birth mother and to be birthed into their essential masculine. Padma turned this age old mystery into a truth for many men in the room, showing the way from being boys to men and showing women how to achieve this with their partners by birthing their men away from the paternal mother from their own womb’s. Many practices were shared with us from many ancient sacred traditions, including the ancient Hebrew, Egyptian and Tibetan lineages. There was nothing new age about this workshop at all, in fact it was the most grounded and real event I have ever attended and it felt like ancient age knowledge was being directly transmitted in a modern, 21st century, practical and accessible format. Anaiya beautifully demonstrated and instructed us on many of the exercises and practices, disclosing more wisdom from the womb in that the womb is not just about child bearing, this power of creation can also be tapped in the birth of projects, careers, healing, spirituality, and relationships. However, because the womb stores the energetic imprint of every intimate encounter―loving or not―the creative voice of the womb is often muffled or absent, affecting the emotional, mental, and spiritual health of women and their relationships with men and all life. She then led us into specific exercises to clear and open the womb, allowing us to get rid of these unwanted energies and install healthy new ones, forming a new and healthy template from which to create our lives anew. There were many gasps in the room when one exercise was performed where we could actually see who was living energetically in our wombs. People were finding old boyfriends still in there preventing them for coming into full intimacy with their present partners. Some people found their parents in there, preventing them from fully stepping up into adulthood, as many light bulbs went on in the room about how important this womb work really is. The most amazing “eureka” moment was when we were introduced us to the 7 gates of the womb, which are the labia, g-spot, clitoris, cervix and womb and the gates beyond. In men it flows through the testes, base and tip of the penis and down the shaft into the hara which is the male womb. Yes! Men have a womb too! Now that is what I call equality. Once here, in this womb space a whole new universe opens up, it is like journeying through deep space and has a life and a pulse all of it’s own. It is the universe inside, it’s like realising the outside illusion is just a projection from this space and everything comes from this space of black light within the centerpoint of all creation. Talk about light bulbs going on around the room at that instant – it was the most profound moment I have ever experienced, outside of looking at my new born daughter in the eyes. Tears welled up inside and I knew I had found the oracle and every answer I had ever sought was right here inside me. That in itself would have done it for me, if the intensive had ended right there and then, I would have been very happy with this new discovery, but there was more, so much more. As the day went on we were introduced to a form of tibetan womb pulsing, another ancient practice lost in the underbelly of society. At first I found it a little odd as we were partnered up and one of the two lay on a mattress whilst the other one straddled on top and wombs and haras were connected. The one on top was giving life force energy via the womb and the one lying down receiving this life force via the womb. My partner was blown away at the release of old childhood pain, and when it was my turn to receive I was taken to a place of complete release where I coughed profusely from my lungs, releasing deep grief and a huge scream followed by ancient, repressed sobbing. A deep sadness had shifted, and I felt lighter and freer than ever before. Anaiya and Padma gave a very moving talk on Sacred Union and as a couple in Sacred Union themselves, they both spoke powerfully about what it is and dispelled any mystery or fantasy about the common misconceptions on meeting your soul mate or twin flame. This brought tears of remembrance to many in the room. They explained that Sacred Union is about giving, not getting. To enter this holy space is entering the deep mystery. There are 7 gates along this pathway, or 7 veils. And all are opened by the different qualities of love, which involves dissolution of the “I”, when YOU no longer exist. Unconditional love is when the non-existence becomes love. You cannot master love, it can only master you! In the flow of unconditional love, no “I” exists. Each of the 7 gates leads to another piece of you being dissolved. To fully enter the womb space you cannot enter with aspect of “I” left. It is the feminine pathway to freedom. This opening to the womb and freedom is not for ourselves, it is for all beings and the selfless action of the Bodhisattva. They passionately explained that love resides in the heart, power resides in the womb and clarity resides when “no mind” has been reached. This formula allows you to create in truth. It would seem that everyone who is writing new age material today has forgotten the womb. Yet it would appear evident that it is the last and vital missing piece to birth a new consciousness, a new functioning society that does not yet exist. Bad relationships are formed when the womb has been omitted, which is why there are so many divorces, so many dissatisfied sexual relations and very few people actually making love on the planet today. It would also seem evident that humanity still has a sense of love by being loved by another, but love needs to be the foundation within us. If we still feel the need to be loved by something or someone outside of ourselves then we are looking outside of ourselves to fill a hole, like a drug. It begged me to ask the internal question, “Next time I contemplate a lover, is this individual able to give, with me, to the larger reality? OR ask myself….is this person coming to get from me as an individual? The former is the route to Sacred Union where two people are giving selflessly to the greater reality. What an amazing revelation. This also felt like another and very important missing piece which is about honour, grossly missing in todays society and so called “loving” relationships. To finish, we were introduced to an ancient Aramaic exercise, originally practiced by the three Mary’s during the time of Christ, which was breathing into the womb and singing out from the heart centre. It was a very powerful experience, whereby we lay on our backs in a birthing position. It seemed like we were doing this for minutes, but in fact we had been doing this for about an hour! As I closed my eyes at the end, I felt as though I was transported to a different dimension, feeling lighter and shifting into a completely new way of living and being, reconnecting to the web of life and a new vibrant reality never experienced before. As we departed, I saw faces that were once wrinkled and worn through time and pain turned into shining smiles, beaming a new light. I now venture into life navigating from the womb, the true essence of my being, and hold deep gratitude in my heart for Padma and Anaiya who have so lovingly and through sheer divine dedication devoted their lives to bringing these truths through for all humanity to experience. The Holy Grail is a mystery no more, it is right here inside of us, in the last place we would ever have thought of looking. Womb Wisdom retreats are now being taught in the UK by Anu Sophia and Anaiya will be teaching Womb Wisdom 2 in France in September 2010. The book Womb Wisdom is published by Inner Traditions Bear & Co. worldwide in February 2011. For event listings: or email

kali worship is great but dangerous also.warning?

This word ‘Kali’ has to be understood. Kali is the mother of time. In Sanskrit time is called KALA, and the mother of KALA is Kali, mother of time. But the mother of time is beyond time. Time is born out of it, but the womb out of which time is born is eternity. Eternity is the mother of time. Time is just a reflection of the eternal. The Bauls worship Kali, the mother of time; they worship eternity. They seek and search eternity — not that which changes but that which remains always and always, that which is beyond all flux, absolutely permanent, unmoving. They seek that hub of the existence. Symbolically it is called Kali. This word ‘KALA’ is very meaningful: one meaning is time, another meaning is death. The same word means time and death. It is beautiful, because time is death. The moment you enter into time, you are ready to die. With birth, death has entered into you. When the child is born, he has entered into the realm of death. The birthday is also the death day. Now only one thing is certain: that he will have to die. Everything else is just uncertain; it may happen, it may not happen. But the moment a child is born, the moment the child has taken his first breath, one thing is absolutely certain — that he will die. Entering into life is entering into death; entering into time is entering into death. Time is death, hence the Sanskrit word KALA is very beautiful. It means both time and death. And Kali means beyond time and beyond death. Eternity is deathlessness. How to find eternity? What is the way? One has to understand the process of time. Kali is a symbol of now, of the eternal, of the absolutely real. To live moment to moment and not to bother about past and future is the way towards the novel man. Excerpts from Osho Book The BelovedMother Kali. She is both life and death, the giver and taker. A beautiful black woman, black like death; a beautiful woman, but very dangerous – so dangerous that she is dancing on the body of her own husband, almost killing him. Shiva is lying there and she is dancing on his body almost crushing him. And she wears a garland of skulls, and in one of her hands she has a cut head, freshly cut with blood dripping from it. In the West they cannot understand why a mother should be so dangerous, why a beautiful woman should be depicted in such a dangerous and terrible and horrible way. Hindus know better. They have penetrated the mystery of life better than anybody else. They know that sex and death are so close, so close that they are almost one. And when the sex center starts throbbing and spreading its waves over your body, the death center also starts throbbing. That’s why orgasm has become just a word. You don’t achieve orgasm in sex – you cannot. Unless you accept death you cannot achieve orgasm, because orgasm means losing all control, orgasm means losing all mind, orgasm means the whole body throbs in ecstasy, every fiber and every cell of It. The whole body celebrates in an unknown bliss and the mind is no more the controller and the manipulator. In the East, particularly in India, we have the image of the goddess Kali, the mother goddess, Kali. She is both a great lover and a great destroyer. If you have seen the image or any picture you will be puzzled – particularly people coming from the West are very much puzzled – but it has a great psychological insight in it. Kali is dancing on the chest of her lover, Shiva. In Sanskrit Shiva means one aspect of God, and Shiva – just a little difference in spelling – Shiva means God, Shiva means corpse. She is dancing on the chest of Shiva, destroying him, making him into a corpse. Shiva is becoming a Shiva! She has a garland of human skulls around her neck and in one hand she holds a freshly cut head, blood coming out from it. Why this strange image? It is not strange, it is tremendously psychological: the woman has great power because she is intuitive. Hence Lawrence is right when he says: … BEWARE A THOUSAND TIMES MORE OF THE WOMAN WHO WANTS TO KNOW YOU, OR GET YOU, WHAT YOU ARE… Quotes from Osho Book Theologia MysticaKali is also considered as a aggressive form of durga. Her tantric sadhna is considered as the most dangerous path, in NIRUTTRA TANTRA” shiva had said”one should worship kali only when he is virabhava (means a hero,a man with courage) or divyabhava(divine).

Elizabethan Witchcraft: An Era of Persecution

The reign of Elizabeth I, Queen of England during the late 1500s, marked an intellectual era of the Renaissance. Sadly, it also marked an era of intensified persecution of Witches, a persecution supported by the Queen who is said to have been a pious creature – always lending an ear to the clergy and heading their ill-advice. Perhaps she too was concerned about her own safety. Her mother, Anne Boleyn was accused of being a Witch. Being the daughter of a Witch in those days could very easily be misconstrued by rivals as hereditary, which would undoubtedly result in the loss of the throne and even the loss of life. Witchcraft practiced during the reign of this Queen is referred to Elizabethan Witchcraft, ironically appearing to offer her the credit for its existence whereas in truth she was partly responsible for its near demise. As indicated before, the Elizabethan era saw a revival in terms of belief in the supernatural. One would imagine that the intellectually enlightened minds of the late 1500’s would view the world very differently to the views held by the likes of Pope Innocent VIII in the 1000’s. Whilst, at first glance a contradiction in terms, the dynamics of the sudden availability of information (or misinformation if you like) caused by the commissioning of Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press around 1456, explains this phenomenon. Copious amounts of books were printed – mostly Bibles or Books containing religious themes. Sadly these themes reinforced belief in the supernatural and the authors were mostly Christian protagonists – proponents of the theory that Witchcraft (and by definition Witches) was evil and that they were consorts of the Devil himself. Most of these so-called experts agreed that British Isles were overrun by Witches and that the scourge had to be dealt with without delay. This led to an increase in Witch hunts and concomitantly to an increase in executions. The fact that the printing press also enabled the publishing of books on Astrology, Alchemy and Magic, merely exacerbated an already burning issue. In 1562, Elizabeth I passed the Elizabethan Witchcraft Act “against Conjurations, Enchantments and Witchcrafts”. The Act was certainly more lenient than those in Italy and Spain. It did not combine acts of heresy with acts of Witchcraft. It also offered punishment by hanging, not burning and disallowed the torture of suspects. But who were the Witches so hated and feared? This is their summarized tale. Once upon a time, before the burnings started, Witches were considered “Wise Ones” by all. They were the mid-wives, the healers, the advisers and the ones who worked magick when magick was needed in someone’s life. They enabled discussions with departed loved ones and looked into the future for those who needed a light on their paths. They were honored and highly regarded. Traditionally an oral tradition, Witchcraft was passed on from Mother to Daughter or Witch to Apprentice – generation upon generation. The Burning Times all but destroyed this tradition. The Craft of the Wise had to resort to stealth to survive and after nearly 500 years of Burning Times, Elizabethan Witches were well underground.
