The plane of neutrality (Sarasvati) appears as a balance between solar and lunar energy within the body.


EACH Human Being, WITHOUT exception, has the ability to invoke Divine infinite energy for healing, to overcome fear & insecurity, remove obstacles, experience profound joy and miraculous insight; to live life abundantly, through the blessings of God. EVERYONE!
It simply requires a most sincere dedication to loving one’s creator, profoundly, above ANYTHING else, with NO expectations of receiving ANYTHING in return. Sincere, spontaneous gratitude is expressed for everything along the entire continuum: from extreme joy/pleasure, to extreme pain/sadness. If, after a period of time (months, years or decades), of feeling that God hasn’t blessed you: continue the same expressions of love, faith, gratitude and devotion toward God, with  the same intensity. 
 Mark Chapter 10: 50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy FAITH hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
At the equator, the speed of Earth’s spin is about 1,000 miles per hour (1,600 kph).
Earth’s orbital speed around the sun is about 67,000 mph.
The solar system travels at an average speed of 515,000 miles per hour (828,000 kilometers per hour). Even at this rapid speed, the solar system would take about 230 million years to travel all the way around the Milky Way.
Ephesians 6:12
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Hosea 6:6
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
September, 2016: my abode, my Dar es Salaam, my Shangri-La, mein garten eden, is now The Oley Valley of Pennsylvania (Berks CountyAlsace Township), an extraordinarily breath-taking, existence-enhancing area. This is paradise on earth, a region where waves of rolling, fertile and luxurious farmland extend to the horizon. Hex signspow-wow (folk magic), hawks and eagles soaring among the thermals, stone farmhouses with a welcoming lighted candle in each window, mountaintop vistas, pink and purple sunsets, silos and sunflowers, horses and buggies, Amish, Mennonite, Brethren, rich raw milk and fragrant honey, covered wooden bridges… Dream-like, hallucinogenic, sensual, magical…

The first European settlers in the Oley Valley arrived in the early 1700s. The settlers were primarily German along with French Huguenots and Swedes seeking religious freedom. One of the Valley’s early residents was Mordecai Lincoln, the great-grandfather of Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of United States. The Lincoln Homestead can still be seen and visited in what is now Exeter Township. The Moravian Church had a Congregation for a time in Oley and operated one of the first schools in the area. more…,_Pennsylvania

Above all, approaching every aspect of life in a celebratory way is most important. If you approach everything in a celebratory way, you learn to be non-serious about life but absolutely involved. The problem with most human beings right now is, if they think something is important they will become dead serious about it. If they think it is not so important they will become lax about it, they don’t show the necessary involvement. In English, if we say “He is in a very serious condition,” that means the next step is you know where. And a lot of people are in a serious condition.

The passage, the secret of life is in just this – seeing everything with a non-serious eye, but absolutely involved – like a game. That’s the reason the most profound aspects of life are approached in a celebratory way, so that you don’t miss the point.

– Sadhguru
Jalal Al-Din Rumi:
Our death is our wedding with eternity. 
What is the secret? “God is One.” 
The sunlight splits when entering the windows of the house. 
This multiplicity exists in the cluster of grapes; 
It is not in the juice made from the grapes. 
For he who is living in the Light of God, 
The death of the carnal soul is a blessing. 
Regarding him, say neither bad nor good, 
For he is gone beyond the good and the bad. 
Fix your eyes on God and do not talk about what is invisible, 
So that he may place another look in your eyes. 
It is in the vision of the physical eyes 
That no invisible or secret thing exists. 
But when the eye is turned toward the Light of God 
What thing could remain hidden under such a Light? 
Although all lights emanate from the Divine Light 
Don’t call all these lights “the Light of God”; 
It is the eternal light which is the Light of God, 
The ephemeral light is an attribute of the body and the flesh. 
…Oh God who gives the grace of vision! 
The bird of vision is flying towards You with the wings of desire.

 Please view the Gardens page, for updates. Thank you!

Edited/reconfigured living room.
 It’s been a month since the last update; this is highly unusual. The gardens have been created and/or transformed/expanded over a period of about five weeks… astounding and marvelous! More than twelve thousand pounds of soil and boulders have been moved to create an incredibly beautiful environment, for which I am profoundly –and infinitely–grateful! Carrying one hundred pounds of soil (or heavy boulders) several yards, repeatedly over many hours,  is completed with no exertion or strain.  Twisting, turning, bending, climbing or kneeling are effortless and extremely pleasurable. Throughout March and April, 2017, Manipura and Svadisthana chakras energized and synthesized their associated work organs, transforming them to a scalar-energy plane.
 New photos of the gardens will be posted soon.
Also, beginning 5/22/17, the living room has been transformed/edited/streamlined. The bedroom is next. These developments are so wonderful!
The last few weeks (same as the last several months) have been simply amazing and profoundly pleasurable, joyful and  insightful; the unfolding of many revelations has occurred.
