History of the Vedas
The Bhāgavatam clearly states (1.4.14) that the Vedas as we know them are not ahistorical. It says that Vyāsa’s efforts to organize the Veda into its current form began “when Age Two was in its third phase.”
Translating this into years is complicated because there are many types of “ages.” Ṛg Veda’s Vedāṁga Jyotiṣa, for example, defines a five-year age. Manu Smṛti and some sections of the Purāṇas define four ages as multiples of 1,000 years. While other places in the Purāṇas, and the Surya Siddhānta, define four ages as multiples of 360,000 years. It seems that the duration of an “age” is relative to the context. The five-year age is used in calendric contexts. 1,000 year ages are used in historical context. 360,000 year ages are used in astronomical context. It appears that the correct definition to use in this case is the historical age.

Celebrating the energetic import of 11/11, by spending the day in a wild and lonely place. Amanda ventured afar to see what the world was up to, and what she found was that even way out here in the mountains of Snowdonia, the cry for world peace can being heard!
Stepping out of her carefully camouflaged “Tardis“.
Day’s end, from the peaks of Snowdonia.
I really hope you enjoyed these pics. As a Celtic man, landscapes like those above, can touch a deep nostalgia, and a longing in me. I love the way…

If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat these two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can…

Alan Turing cannot compress thoughts into designs
Therefore, computers cannot process meanings
‘blue light-cone of the oceanic peace’ flows in tandem with ‘music from the flute’ (Interchangeable Constants – Krishna = Buddha to become the Christ in every matter-anti-matter)
violins are integrating feelings at the heart of micro-gravity (supra-elevation Gross body function mechanism as per Absolute Black Body Radiation at the vital-body at rest)
no one knows- how? (chi-en—chi-en)
at the base, at the navel, the serpent of eternal coil sleeps in the shrouded monastery of primal-delight
the adi-tattva is there – the ‘tandava’ is there
collapse wave into a cloud of particle and then sing the blues
BEHIND BLUE EYES -BEHIND BLUE EYES
Who are you? Who am I?
multiple essence of one supermind
generating meaning from unlimited morphogenetic n-quasi spiral fields
service world as words with feelings – human and god-like

Oneness or Unity is the most important cosmology you will ever understand. It can be summed up in the simple statement, God is all there is. Take a moment now and reflect on the meaning of this.
Oneness is all inclusive and very simple; however the reality in this ego world is separation struggles to maintain a hold on life. Ego demonstrates thru turmoil, conflict, hate, fear, loneliness and death. The only way to move beyond the illusion of separation is to embrace it; to see it for what it is; an illusion. When something comes up you recognize as separation, simply acknowledge it, see beyond it and then just leave separation behind. Ignore it, it has no power. Instead focus on the Truth. The Truth is we are One unified and whole being. We are Gaia!
Oneness is Unity expressed, it is love thy neighbor as thy love’s oneself, it is making decisions with the consideration…

There is no absence of desire. This is human life. Comes with the body. Start off with breath. We need breath, we desire air… On a very deep basic level. Not desire like chocolate pudding, but our body needs air. We need food, we don’t have to overeat, but we need food.
And we also have this thing called lust. We like to get laid. So, some people like it more than others some people do it more than others, some people do it less than others, but it’s a part of having a human body. Desire is part of the program.
What’s wrong with desire is that it sets up false expectations. That’s not what’s wrong with desire, that’s a cultural thing. The misunderstanding about desire is that sexual desire, physical desire has something to do with Love. We all think it does, don’t we? The commercials of you…

Tantra is probably the most misunderstood branch of Indian religious practices. An ancient practice that dates back to the 5th-9th century CE, the common perception about tantra is that it is a kind of black magic.
However, the truth is that tantra is the science of life, a way of living, which aims to remove all roadblocks towards liberation. While some spiritual practices consider material pleasures as forbidden and obstructing progress on the spiritual path, thereby causing a constant internal battle within the spiritual seeker that involves self-condemnation and guilt, the tantric perspective is that our ignorance of our true nature is the only real impurity.Tantra says be the way you are: impulses, imperfections and all. It doesn’t tell you to go against your impulses or to fight against your being. Tantra simply teaches the transmutation of energy.It teaches one to transform hate into love, to transform sex into…

Being a Whole Person – Both Human and Spiritual
by Peri Coeurtney Enkin
If you are like most people you do not want to miss a thing. You sense there is much joy to be had in life and you want it. Of course you do! And yet there seems to be a shortage of hours in the day. It is not that we are incapable of fitting it all in. In fact, many of us run around crazily trying to cram in as much activity as possible. It is just that there are different parts of us vying for our time and attention.
We are busy people. So how do we decide what to do and when to do it? How do we determine what our priorities will be and where to focus our energies? Unless we take time to get to know our whole self – to move…
