Existence or Consciousness is the only reality. Consciousness plus waking we call waking.
Consciousness plus sleep we call sleep. Consciousness plus dream, we call dream. Consciousness is the screen on which all the pictures come and go. The screen is real, the pictures are mere shadows on it.
Mind is a wonderful force inherent in the Self.
That which arises in this body as ‘I’ is the mind.
When the subtle mind emerges through the brain and the senses, the gross names and forms are cognized. When it remains in the Heart names and forms disappear… If the mind remains in the Heart, the ‘I’ or the ego which is the source of all thoughts will go, and the Self, the Real, Eternal ‘I’ alone will shine. Where there is not the slightest trace of the ego, there is the Self.
For all thoughts the source is the ‘I’ thought.
The mind will merge only by Self-enquiry ‘Who am I?’ The thought ‘Who am l?’ will destroy all other thoughts and finally kill itself also. If other thoughts arise, without trying to complete them, one must enquire to whom did this thought arise. What does it matter how many thoughts arise? As each thought arises one must be watchful and ask to whom is this thought occurring. The answer will be ‘to me’. If you enquire ‘Who am I?’ the mind will return to its source (or where it issued from). The thought which arose will also submerge. As you practise like this more and more, the power of the mind to remain as its source is increased. Continue reading ☯ The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi

1. “Compassion is not an expression of ordinary love tainted by the attachment to emotion. It is the energy of loving kindness that comes about as one’s mind awakens to the recognition that life we deemed as normal is impermanent and the lack of our recognition of its true nature is the cause of suffering.”
2. “Action that arises from the motivation of awakening mind can always be counted upon to deliver the right kind of fruition.”
3. “The only reality that matters in the timelessness of being is the measure of pure love and compassion we confer upon the caring for other entities, without the attachment of the self-centered agenda.” Continue reading ☯ Gems of Wisdom
“The changing of bodies into light and light into bodies, is very comfortable to the course of nature, which seems delighted with transmutations.” Opticks, Sir Isaac Newton
The philosophy of this ancient discipline is mysterious1a, both necessarily and deliberately. Necessarily, because it took into account the invisible world which cannot be observed by the senses and, therefore, could not be described in a logical fashion. Deliberately because the knowledge, which the alchemists believed themselves to be able to obtain, would confer a degree of power which, in the hands of the uninitiated, would be disastrous to the world.Western alchemy offers us two concomitant themes: the transmutation of base metals into gold, which is regarded as the ultimate stage in a process of perfection, and a religious conception of the regeneration of the soul1. These two interpretations give rise to two dominate schools of thought. The one school, the materialists who regard alchemy as a chemical process at time covered allegorically in terms of religious experiences. The other mystical which conceives alchemy as a spiritual process disguised in the language of chemistry.
“There is also the marriage, the conjunction, the union of Sun and Moon, Sol and Luna, the masculine father principles of radiance, light, heat, and energy with the feminine mother principles of magnetism, mystery, beauty, feeling, and water. Continue reading ☯ The Nature, History & Art of Alchemy
Ormus Manna Gold is of Essence, One, revealing The Great Work of a True Alchemist in every bottle. All natural ingredients of the earth’s purest kind are applied to the great work of organic Alchemy, in combination with deep cultivation of Primordial Qi during the extraction process.
What Is ORMUS? The water used to create Ormus Manna Gold is harvested from a natural (glacier) spring. It’s still to this day releasing pure spring water in abundance, (ice cold even during the summer months). I harvest the spring water with a magnetic water trap concentrating the M-State over a period of time. Using this water leads to much higher yields of Ormus when used as a catalyst in collaboration with the (Wet Method) extraction process. Four ancient sea-salts are used in the process to provide a well-rounded blend of ORMUS colloidal trace-minerals which compliment the M-State Gold extracted from the highest grade Dead Sea Salts available. For more information on the healing properties of the Dead Sea click here.Ormus Properties? What is it? Quantum Coherence? (synchronize brain hemispheres?) Anti-Aging? (cell regeneration?)

eBay Listings Widget from Auction NudgeTo become Coherent (is to dissolve into Qi). One must discover the truth of our eternal (timeless) nature. Ormus Manna Gold helps “set the scene” by naturally propagating the cellular playground of timeless (zero point coherence) potentially aiding in one’s ability to cultivate, manifest, and directly influence the flow of Qi (effortlessly with practice) into reality. It seems that, as the subtle energies begin to appear on the radar, one naturally becomes aware and is attuned accordingly. Ormus Manna Gold has also been noted by some to amplify one’s intuitions, psychic abilities, and help to open one’s awareness to gradually ascend into higher states of consciousness as it is introduced to the light body’s organic mechanism. Ormus Manna supplements the system with the finest blend of Ormus essential trace minerals, all of which combined have been known to accelerate the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate and align with the cosmic “blueprint”. (Increased metabolic rate, cellular rejuvenation, repair, and more) has also been described by some individuals. It is NOT the Ormus that does the healing… It’s the harmonization of the Body, Mind, and Spirit (Trinity) that leads to spontaneous healings. Ormus Manna may help “set the scene” for this to occur. Ormus Manna Gold “is known by some” to activate one’s Primordial Essence by attuning the senses to the Subtler Energies of the Universe. Because of this, higher states of consciousness have been known to propagate in due time for whomever ingests this one-of-a-kind, remarkably~magical substance as its only purpose is of essence, ☯ne

Introduction to Qigong
The Buddhist Master Bodhidharma, an Indian Prince before his renunciation, went to the Shaolin Monastery 1500 years ago and meditated in solitude for nine years. At the end of his retreat, he taught several systems of Qigong (Energy Yoga) to the monks at the Shaolin Monastery so that their constitution was fortified, to give rise to heightened vitality, for Dharma practice. These Qigong systems include ‘Yi Gin Ching’ – Sinews Changing Classics – which strengthened the health of the monks and empowered their physique, and ‘Shii Soei Ching’ – the Marrow Washing Classics – which deals with qi cleansing, marrow rejuvenation, and the fusion of energy for enlightenment.

A major theme in Buddhist Mindfulness practice is insight into impermanence. There is a deep link between the experience of impermanence in Mindfulness and the Taoist concept of Qi (Chi) as used in East Asian medicine and martial arts. In a sense, they approach the same phenomenon from opposite yet complimentary points of view. In Mindfulness practice, we simply pay attention to ordinary experiences: mental images, internal talk, physical and emotional body sensations. As the result of this, it sometimes happens that ordinary experiences become extraordinary. Thoughts and sensations break up into a flowing energy that expands, contracts, undulates and vibrates.
Qigong (and Inner Alchemy) practice starts from the other end. It involves exercises that activate the experience of flowing energy. To combine the two practices, then, is to invoke the best of both worlds. The Buddhist Mindfulness training increases our awareness skills, allowing us to detect the energy/vibratory nature underlying ordinary experience. On the other hand, the Qigong subtly activates that energy – and since we have the magnifying glass of mindfulness we’re able to better detect that subtle activation.
In Chinese medicine, health is associated with a smooth, abundant and balanced flow of qi through the meridians. Dis-ease, on the other hand, appears when there is a deficiency, stagnation or imbalance of this flow of Qi. Qigong practice works to supplement energetic deficiencies, as well as to move stagnation and create a harmonious flow of life-force through our body-mind’s channels of awareness (meridians). Since Mindfulness trains us to open to – rather than congeal around – internal mind/body experience, it perfectly compliments and deepens these processes initiated by Qigong practice. The combination of these Buddhist and Taoist practices therefore amplifies the potential for profound healing and insight into our True Nature.
Qigong (pronounced “chee-gung,”) is translated from the Chinese to mean “energy cultivation” or “working with the life energy.” Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of postures, exercises, breathing techniques, and meditations. Its techniques are designed to improve and enhance the body’s qi. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, Qi is the fundamental life energy responsible for health and vitality.
In Chinese thought, qi, or chi, is the fundamental life energy of the universe. It is invisible but present in air, water, food and sunlight. In the body, qi is the unseen vital force that sustains life. We are all born with inherited amounts of qi, and we also get acquired qi from the food we eat and the air we breathe. In qigong, the breath is believed to account for the largest quantity of acquired qi, because the body uses air more than any other substance. The balance of our physical, mental, and emotional levels also affect qi levels in the body. Continue reading ☯ Buddhism and Qigong

If the mind becomes absorbed in the Heart, the ego or ‘I’, which is the center of the multitude of thoughts finally vanishes and pure Consciousness or Self which subsists during all the states of the mind, alone remains resplendent. ~Ramana Maharshi
“When you discover the Here which is beyond geography and the Now which is beyond time, then you are reintroduced to your own freedom. You become so empty that you can accommodate the presence of God.” – Mooji
The life force and the mind are operating, but the mind will tempt you to believe that it is “you.” Therefore, understand always that you are the timeless, spaceless witness. And even if the mind tells you that you are the one who is acting, don’t believe the mind. Always keep your identity separate from that which is doing the working, thinking and talking. That which has happened—that is, the apparatus which is functioning—has come upon your original essence, but you are not that apparatus. This is to be firmly kept in mind. ~Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
There’s a mantra at the end of (The Heart Sutra)
It is called “The Mantra which Calms All Suffering” …
“Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha!“
What does it mean?
It has been translated in many ways …
One of the beautiful ways is a commentary extracted from “The Heart of Understanding” by Thich Nhat Hanh, He says:
“Through mindfulness we experience “Inter-being” which means everything is in everything else. Therefore, one should know that Perfect Understanding is a great mantra, is the highest mantra, is the unequaled mantra, the destroyer of all suffering, the incorruptible truth.”
Other interpretations include but are not limited to:
- Going, going on beyond, always going on beyond, always becoming Buddha.
- Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone altogether beyond. Oh what an awakening! All hail!
- Gone, gone, gone beyond altogether beyond, Awakening, fulfilled!
- Gone, gone, gone to the Other Shore, attained the Other Shore having never left.
- Gone, gone, totally gone, totally completely gone, enlightened, so be it.
- “Oh, you have done! You have done! You have completely crossed the margin. This is Enlightenment! Congratulations!”
- “Homage to the Awakened Mind which has crossed over to the other shore – which has gone altogether beyond freed from suffering”
- Gone … Gone Beyond Which has gone altogether beyond, Freed from Suffering … or What an Awakening!

“If then you do not make yourself equal to God, you cannot apprehend God; for like is known by like. Leap clear of all that is corporeal and make yourself grow to a like expanse with that greatness which is beyond all measure; rise above all time, and become eternal; then you will apprehend God. Think that for you too nothing is impossible; deem that you too are immortal, and that you are able to grasp all things in your thought, to know every craft and every science; find your home in the haunts of every living creature; make yourself higher than all heights, and lower than all depths; bring together in yourself all opposites of quality, heat and cold, dryness and fluidity; think that you are everywhere at once, on land, at sea, in heaven; think that you are not yet begotten, that you are in the womb, that you are young, that you are old, that you have died, that you are in the world beyond the grave; grasp in your thought all this at once, all times and places, all substances and qualities and magnitudes together; then you can apprehend God. But if you shut up your soul in your body, and abase yourself, and say ‘I know nothing, I can do nothing; I am afraid of earth and sea, I cannot mount to heaven; I know not what I was, nor what I shall be’ ; then, what have you to do with God? Your thought can grasp nothing beautiful and good, if you cleave to the body, and are evil.”
