Universal Mind is the manifested existence. Continuing from our previous meetings on the topic, we will take a baby step towards establishing the universal mind, via direct experiences. This will be more of an unlearning experience rather than a learning one. All one needs to do is thoroughly question one's everyday waking experience, and arrive at a place of not knowing. As soon as the dirt of beliefs is cleared, the knowledge then shines by itself.
In the second part on the topic of the universal mind, some ways and methods to explore the universal mind are discussed in brief. There are three broad ways to approach the Universal Mind:
2. Ordinary experiences
3. Extraordinary experiences
3.1 Everyday extraordinary experiences
3.2 Rare extraordinary experiences
3.3 Brute force methods
3.4 Elegant methods
3.5 Permanent experiences
In this meeting the concept of universal mind is presented in brief. Universal mind is all that which can be experienced, all that which is manifested. There are various theories and models of its structure and organization or ontology. Some of them are presented here. This is the part one of two on this topic.
Continuing the talk on Kundalini and the path of knowledge. In this part an easy way to evaluate your level of evolution is suggested and some solutions are offered in order to clear the blockages and speed up the evolution of the mind without actually getting involved in any energetic practices whatsoever.
Continuing the talk on Kundalini and the path of knowledge. In this part we see that the evolution of the mind is a necessity, it happens independently of the path one is on. Any spiritual path will result in acceleration of evolution. We see that we cannot simply avoid it, and we cannot remain inactive. Evolution is speeded up on the path of knowledge too and we can assist in a few ways as going backwards is not desirable, we can consciously prevent going backwords. Moreover we can adopt a simple lifestyle where we favour an evolved behaviour over habitual behaviour. Some more aspects of this topic are also discussed.
In this meeting some of the key teachings of the great philosopher Gurdjieff were discussed, like, the psychology of Man's possible evolution. Is a Man conscious? Can a Man achieve consciousness? And, what are the hallmarks of a Man who is conscious.
Kundalini is mostly mysterious and magical, and therefore, the logical and rational mind of a seeker on the path of knowledge does not find this concept very useful. We tend to discard it, but it is possible to understand Kundalini as a model of the evolutionary processes of the mind and benefit from it. In this meeting we will speculate on such possibility.
