Christianity Has Been Revealed It Has Not Yet Been Understood or Lived
Comprehend that the Cosmic Christ expresses itself wherever there is a human being (a Buddha) who is duly prepared. Christ is not an individual, Christ is not a person, Christ is not an “I”; Christ is a cosmic force that is latent within every atom of the universe. Christ is the universal fire of life, and this is very important to understand, because Christ is Fire.”
`The Self,’ said Jung, ‘is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.’ Dr. Jung spoke that sentence in Latin. ‘And do you know what the Self is for Western man? It is Christ, for Christ is the archetype of the hero, representing man’s highest aspiration. All this is very mysterious and at times frightening.’ J
Kundalini, the serpent power or mystic fire, is the primordial energy or Sakti that lies dormant or sleeping in the _ Muladhara Chakra, the centre of the body. It is called the serpentine or annular power on account of serpentine form. It is an electric fiery occult power, the great pristine force which underlies all organic and inorganic matter.
Kundalini is the cosmic power in individual bodies. It is not a material force like electricity, magnetism, centripetal or centrifugal force. It is a spiritual potential Sakti or cosmic power. In reality it has no form. […] 0 Divine Mother Kundalini, the Divine Cosmic Energy that is hidden in men!
This serpent power (the Holy Spirit in Christian terms; 1 Cor 12:1-11), this kundalini, sleeping inner giant in every human being, lies coiled at the base of the spine dormant, in (Sanskrit) muladhara chakra. It can be awakened, in the course of Christ-like purified living (Jesus’s victor, also appendix 1), by Christ or a saint directly or in a dream.
The Shakti, the Energy, the Holy Spirit is manifested within man when Kundalini awakens from Her potential state at the bottom of the spine and actualises Herself in the Sahastrara: this is the state called self-realisation, the manifestation of the Kundalini aspect of the Holy Spirit in the Sahastrara. Lord Jesus said: “What is the Kingdom of God like and to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” (Luke 13.18)
The psychosomatic and spiritual instrument is manifested by the rising of the Kundalini. And again, “To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour till it was all leavened”. (Luke 13.20). The alternative phases of potentiality and actuality of the Shakti-Kundalini are the substance of this statement.
Additionally, kundalini can also be stimulated via one who has attained oneness with God as well as has the power of spiritual awakening and God-realization. Once awakened, kundalini rises by way of a series of centers of subtle energy (chakras), referred to as lotuses, through which the kundalini rises via the spinal channel of sushumna to the top of the head. Kundalini can easily penetrate your blood-brain barrier, where the thousand-petaled lotus in the brain (Sanskrit sahasrara) is located at the crown of the head.
Here, it is pouring out luminous white light, in the form of awareness (Samadhi—a state of meditative union with the Absolute, Nirvana, or enlightenment), wisdom, knowledge, mystical visions, power to heal, miracles, and ecstasies of love and bliss (1 Cor 12:4-11).
Note: the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a wall that surrounds the brain and prevents harmful toxins, bacteria, and certain important antioxidants from your vitamins or supplements from reaching your brain. As a life-saving protection, it also prevents many drugs from getting to the brain, creating a problem in treating tumors.
In the sacred Holiest of Holies, infused contemplation, we enter from mother or infant milk to solid food and from luminous light, orgasmic stillness, and emptiness to the Absolute Void and direct realization. Different planes of emergence take place from you. They are your own magnificent grandeur. They are you. Thou art that, I am that, I am indeed the Absolute Being.
The Key to Opening the Seals
In the Gospel of John and in the Book of Revelation (a record of what the Apostle John saw and heard, in which constant use is made of symbols) it is significant that John places these seals on the back of the book of life. Each of the churches of the Book of Revelation represents one of the seven major chakras in the astral spine:
Church of Ephesus – muladhara chakra
Church of Pergamos – svadhisthana chakra
Church of Smyrna – mapipara chakra
Church of Thyatira – anahata chakra
Church of Sardis – vituddha chakra
Church of Philadelphia- aina chakra
Church of Laodicea – sahasrara chakra
The seeker’s journey to Pure Consciousness begins from muladhara chakra at the base of the spine, where the first seal resides, and upwards to sahasrara chakra in the brain, where the seventh seal resides (the ultimate state of oneness with the eternal Father).
So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of man [to Divine Consciousness], then you will know that I am He.’ John 8: 28.
Revelation 1, 10-20 gives a record of spiritual experience and description of the astral anatomy. John also refers to the three main naffs: iria, pirigala and susumna, and the chakras:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman [kundalini], clothed with the sun [pingala], and the moon [ida] under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars [the six chakras up and down]. Revelation 12: 1
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads [seven chakras] and ten horns [the five organs of action and the five organs of knowledge], and seven crowns [seven chakras and associated vibrations] upon his head. Revelation 12: 3
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life [the spine], and may enter in through the gates [chakras] into the city. Revelation 22: 1.
The three astral nadis, and the seven main chakras are also referred to in the Old Testament, in Zechariah:
Then the angel who talked with me returned and wakened me, as a man wakened from sleep. He asked me, ‘What do you see?’ I answered, ‘I see a solid gold lamp-stand [susumna] with a bowl at the top [sahasrara] and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights. And there are two olive trees by it [ida and pirigala], one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.’ Zechariah 4: 2,3
The scientific interior process of Kriya Yoga meditation is the key to opening the seals (chakras). The meditator, regulating his mind and heart through self-discipline, disconnects the mind from the outward senses and their objects of distraction. He interiorizes his attention within and deeply concentrates on the Spiritual Eye; he withdraws his bodily consciousness and life force from the lower chakras, and directs it upwards through the astral spine to the thousand-rayed lotus in the sahasrara chakra. There the individual soul is freed and united in blissful superconsciousness in oneness with God.
And no one has ascended up to heaven, except he who came down from heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up in order that all who believe may have eternal life in him. John 3:13-14
In this verse, the term ‘Son of man’ refers not to Jesus but is a metaphor for the physical body consciousness. The ‘serpent is the kupprafin/ ‘serpent force’ that must be lifted up’. The individual soul-consciousness and life force must be raised up in the spinal passage through deep Kriya Yoga meditation to unite in the Supreme Consciousness at the sahasrara chakra. The serpent power, kuxialinT, is also referred to in the Old Testament:
And the Lord said to Moses, Make a serpent [downward-moving kumgarini] and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten [by delusion of worldliness] can look at it and live.’ So Moses made a bronze serpent and put it on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a serpent and looked at the bronze serpent [the radiant light of the upward-moving kuerrialini], he lived. Numbers 21: 8,9
Again the su,sumne, iff5 and pirigala are referred to by St John in the last chapter of Revelation:
Then the angel showed me the river of water of life, as dear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb [Christ Consciousness within] down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river [susumna] stood the tree of life [Ida and pitigalal, bearing twelve crops of fruits [the positive and negative poles of the six chakras, produced by the upward and downward currents in ida and pitigala yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves [vibrations and rhythms] of the tree [consciousness] are for the healing of the nations [whole body]. Revelation 22: 1-2
The ajna chakra is also mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments:
The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6: 22
My guru, Paramhansa Yogananda. referred to the ajna chakra as the Christ centre. This centre has two poles — the medulla oblongata (negative pole) and the Spiritual Eye (positive pole). The verse from Matthew is referring to the Spiritual Eye, which is seen during deep meditation, when concentrating deeply at the forehead. midpoint between the eyebrows. The Spiritual Eye is seen as a deep blue circular field, surrounded by a circle of golden light, and in the centre of the blue field radiates a scintillating five-rayed silvery-white star. This is the same star that the Three Wise Men saw ‘in the east’.
When the two eye currents are concentrated and thrown back in the medulla by focusing the eyes on the point between the eyebrows, they are perceived as one single Spiritual Eye of light. When the two physical eyes manifest the Spiritual Eye, then one can perceive, by continuous spiritual development, the physical body as filled with the super-lights of the supersensuous astral body. Paramhansa Yogananda
Afterwards he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: and, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.. Ezekiel 43: 1-2
In his Autobiography of a Yogi Paramhansa Yogananda explains this further:
Through the divine eye in the forehead [east], the yogi sails his consciousness into omnipresence, hearing the Word or Aum, divine sound of many waters or vibrations which is the sole reality of creation.’ Yogananda also described his divine experience of the Spiritual Eye, when his guru, Lahiri Mahasaya, initiated him into Kriya Yoga meditation.
He touched my forehead. Masses of whirling light appeared; the radiance gradually formed itself into the opal-blue Spiritual Eye, ringed in gold and centred with a white pentagonal star. ‘Penetrate your consciousness through the star into the kingdom of the Infinite.’ My guru’s voice had a new note, soft like distant music. Vision after vision broke as oceanic surf on the shores of my soul. The panoramic spheres finally melted in a sea of bliss. I lost myself in ever-surging blessedness. When I returned hours later to awareness of this world, the master gave me the technique of Kriya Yoga.
