Conscious Living practicing Arts & Sports
Back in time, that has changed only a 150 years ago, pre-electricity, our society was infected with inequality, injustice, and a thought that lived within 90% of us for many millennia’s – the thought of Equality. The total population of the world, post electricity, rose dramatically from 1/2 a billion to 8 billions. During this time of learning how to live together we went through both the 1st and the 2nd World War.
Thanks to our learnings and to the modern technology, we now have an opportunity to study / practice ancient spiritual growth / self development practices from around the world. This exposure to the mix of East and West, South and North, gives us some very inspiring insights.
A grand piano recital of one of the best world pianist Grigory Sokolov that was entitled “The Legend is Back” took us onto a 3 hours journey through Haydn’s sonatas and finished with 5 encores at midnight. While on this “single man on a piano” marathon, we as his audience stopped breathing with every pause he performed. He mastered his and the energy of entire Conference Centre crowd, taking us into the highest states of consciousness.
Both music and sports, fully intuitively connect with the mastery of breath and souls’ meditations. There is no exceptional artists, sportsmen or dancer without the mastery of deep breath, circular breath, rapid breath, or deep understanding of the magic of concentration.
Yin and Yang Balance within Human Beings
Ancient Spirituality and Modern Practices around the World
Within the spiritual growth arena, in our drive for goodness, humanity used to exercise tremendous efforts to transform Yin into Yang, searching for Balance within Order, applying force to guard “chastity”, “honor”, or “inner laws”.
Within our understanding of the “wisdom” system, like in any learning, we pass through a spiral, slowly climbing up its various levels – physically, mentally and intuitively mastering the tools, comprehending its more subtle wisdom and beauty. Exercising Tai Chi, for example, takes us into a journey that as a gift combines breathing, movement, and the energy flow.
Watching a Master exercise the Art, we watch him / her exchange with Tao / divine
Being able to apply a “personal growth” system within all age groups – kids, youth, mature adults, both women and men, including the old, is a sign of wisdom within that system. While experiencing different Yin and Yang combinations of consciousness manifestations, we all seek the system that both grows within us and helps us grow.
Yoga and Tai Chi as products of Yin based minds
Yoga as a system of knowledge went into many details about how energies within our spines interact with the brain, involving drawings (mandalas), sounds (mantras), symbols (within each of 7 chakra). Yoga examines how the various physical, mental or emotional dirt within the body creates emotional blockages. Mastering concentration, meditation or breath, brings both: prolonging life or attaining what Yogis call enlightenment. Yoga has developed some interesting “solder-like” practices for the improvement of Willpower. It was designed for mainly men and learned from childhood. It comes from a predominantly Yin environment where a state of chaos is a norm, so it required discipline, as a male application of force…
Philosophy Mother of all Sciences Applied or Goodness
In our search for God or Good-ness, consciousness, enlightenment, Bliss, throughout human history, we came across the Mother of them all – the mystical, magical, occult, scientific Philosophy.
Philosophy was known as the Mother of all Sciences.
It was at the very top of the scientific hierarchy. You may not practice it unless you have achieved enough knowledge and experience so you can call your-self Wise. Back to quantum physics, this is where a modern scientist’s mathematical quest for the Unity of Knowledge opens its door to the evolution of consciousness, mysticism of ancient wisdom, and beauty of intuitive knowledge.
“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.” – Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907
Nikola Tesla also said: “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Philosophy around the World
How many times have you heard a quote of a famous ancient philosopher contributed to a contemporary political figure? A quote of a saint, being used within a contemporary power machine? Too many…
Because our souls are embodied within this space and time; and our memory short, we tend to forget how many generations embodied this fight for goodness within our beautiful planet Gaia.
Since there are humans there has always been “us” and “them”, so the “them” only recently became visible to our eyes. To all our surprises, this “them” that we learned to hate for so many generations, had their-own advanced civilization where mathematics came from (from the Arab world), where science was regarded as the highest of all human achievements (Africa, India and China), where Laws existed before we decided to conquer them.
As it usually is with the Lady Knowledge, you get both charlatans and wise-men trying to claim it. But who would know the difference when we for 1,000s of years lived within the worlds that know nothing but tales of each other.
We all love the highest manifestation of human potential – the scientists, philosophers, the top musicians and top sportsmen, we give them our support and sincerely hope that our kids will follow their suit.
Back in time, 2,000 years ago, our inner worlds did not look much different and Kings knew that they are going to be remembered only if the Philosophers acknowledge their divinity so they supported each other.
Back in time, 2,000 years ago, if a person is a Philosopher, the doors of many courts were wide open. But since the travel through space was limited, the gossip, or words of the Goodness had to travel from city to city, carried by messengers whose memory was not always that reliable. So, as in any marketing / money making machine to build the trust, the relationship and the communication took sometimes many generations. It is easy to sell the books if you are Shakespeare or Shankar, so people started publishing books under their names.
We are collectively weary of strangers, because there is no family we can relate to that supported their drive for Goodness. A collection of writings of people travelling to India 2,000 years ago carried sometimes strange stories of our deepest Superstitions –
“Then,” he says, “I came to a country very dry and burnt up by the sun. And all about this desert I saw men naked and houseless, and of these some shaded their faces with their ears and the rest of their bodies with their feet raised in the air. Of these men Strabo has a notice, as also of the no-heads and ten-heads and four-hands-and-feet men, but none of them did I ever see, quoth Hierocles.
Within the same writings, we will also find some very valuable stories written 2,000 years ago, we get some interesting meditations about philosophers and their way of life.
“Apollonius therefore asked, as though it was of all knowledge the most difficult, “Whether the Sophoi knew themselves?” But larchas answered quite contrary to his expectation, that they knew all things, because they first knew themselves. That, without this first and elementary knowledge, no one could be admitted to their philosophy.”
“What opinion they held of themselves?” and was told, “that they held themselves to be gods, because they were good men.”
“Here, on the other hand, philosophy is a high honor, and before we allow anyone to study it, we first send him to the home of the Brahmans, who inquire into his character and parentage. He must shew that his progenitors, for three generations, have been without stain or reproach, and that he himself is of pure morals and of a retentive intellect. For when an Indian died, a legally appointed officer repaired to his house, and inquired into, and set down in writing, his mode of life.”
“the characteristics of a free people, or at least of a people living under known laws. They are industrious, persevering, intelligent, orderly, provident… There the villages and cottages are neat and clean, and the gardens and fields enclosed by carefully made and well-trimmed fences; there to ensure the irrigation and fertility of the land each village built out in the open has its tank, each farmhouse its well, the work of its owner’s hands or his predecessor’s; there you everywhere meet with something that tells of municipal care or individual exertion, but with nothing that is the work of an imperial will aided by imperial resources”
Quotes from Indian Travels
Quantum Physics Applied to Philosophy to Understand Divine Will Manifested
I will give you my definition of this subject.
If your mind is not capable of understanding the laws of Quantum Physics (the random logic of the wave behavior and the behavior of the observed particles) and laws of Philosophy (positive charge of a virtuoso soul = free man) and the magic of Taoism (yin and yang behavior of Consciousness) you will have difficulties understanding one of the major laws of Divine Manifestation for the benefit of All – the random probability of your first intuitive thought (applied Quantum Physics) within the Purity of your intention will materialize as Clear Ratio supported with Intuitive Wisdom (that was through centuries known as Divine Will).
Following the rules of Quantum Physics and the wave behavior probability law, a scientist could even calculate the relationship between the random thoughts and Truth in relation to the Yin / Yang nature of the Thinker. In theory, a Philosopher with Pure Mind (Thinking and Feeling combined), will have all his Intuitive thoughts “checked” as Divine.
Isn’t that amazing!
Yin and Yang Manifestation of Consciousness (within Taoism) or Mind and Intuition (within Western Thought) or Tamasic and Satvic State of Being (within Hinduism)
Many pure men will jump to follow a leader whose drive has this quality of the manifestation of Clear Ratio supported with Intuitive Wisdom (Divine Will) for the benefit of All. However they forget that this quality is extremely difficult to maintain.
There are a number of reasons for it:
1. Yin and Yang Consciousness balance within the Leader constantly changes;
2. Yin and Yang Consciousness balance of the Observer resonates differently to the Leader at all times because each of us has a different combination or % of positive and negative application of Reason vs Wisdom within. One at all times strives to become a Free Thinker;
3. In its essence wave particles (Conscious vs. Unconscious Behavior of a Soul) are of a Random nature and they can change if measured or observed.
A young man (age 17) driving a motor-bike, just killed a policeman in Malta, trying to escape when asked to show his non-existent documents. Mind you today was a day of “chaos” in Malta – a simple but powerful traffic chaos that caused a chain reaction of many angry drivers everywhere (so Yin and Yang balance within the atmosphere was already distorted). The young man was scared, stupid, un-experienced, too young. He acted upon his negative instinct and caused the death of the policeman. What a sad and deeply disturbing story! He acted totally opposite to Clear Ration applied with Intuitive Wisdom (Divine Will).
We all have to be careful if our icons are young and still need to learn the logic within the world of “ratio”. Is there a way anyone can materialize Divine Will if not supported by knowledge and experience that are given by age and mature wisdom? For all the Life Followers that now wonder – what would the example of Joanne of Arc teach us? Yes, this would mean that Joanne of Arc even though we all love her story, could not possibly have the wisdom and strength to lead her men into the war.
The power of youth is seductive and can be mistaken for Divine purity (or in her case abused by Authority / Powers as real) however purity needs an inner strength and wisdom to follow Divine. The inner strength and wisdom can be achieved only slooooowly. There are no short-cuts on the way of achievement of wisdom, on the way to enlightenment.
A powerful Philosophical example of mistreating the Cosmic Logic was when a “pure man” followed a so called angel to kill his son in the forest. If you are a Jew, a Muslim or a Christian, you must have heard of this story from the Old Testament. This act could have only been a test of purity of this man, for no Gods would have ever ordered you to kill your-own son or an innocent human being. As when the temptation of Christ came along after he fasted for 40 days and nights in a desert, he has intuitively (following Divine Will) decided not to tempt the Lord bowing to the essence of egoism making a spectacular throw of might. In Matthew and Luke “the tempter” tempts Jesus to 1. make bread out of stones to relieve his own hunger; 2. jump from a pinnacle and rely on angels to break his fall.
Now, discussing the Yin and Yang Manifestation of Consciousness, or Hindu Philosophers will tell you Rajas, Tamas and Satvic Balance within each one of us, one ought to respect the wisdom law that no state is static and that no amounts of magic and mystical protection (prayer) can protect pure men from the distortive attraction of Power, that within the particles world “+” attracts “-“ to that extend that Consciousness will get completely distorted with Power of any sort. That is why we have all greatly suffered following our Kings, Popes and Priests in the past. We had a random possibility of 50% chance to have a positive or negative application of their Ratio vs. Wisdom Force. That is not very high!
