Spiritual Every-Flavour Jelly Beans Anyone?

Food for thought.

Everyone has a third eye they can use. It’s easier than you think. Just be playful and creative, have fun. Your third eye can give you an input based on all your senses that you can understand, through visuals, sounds, smells, tastes, and tactile feelings.

For instance, in the first Harry Potter film, Harry is given a packet of Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. Now it’s easy to imagine beans representing something you want some information on. I quite like to look at political parties, or politicians (some of those beans can taste really disgusting!). I like to to take a look, or a taste, of organizations; try the NSA, or CIA, or MI5, MI6, or the Russian or Chinese or Israeli, secret services. Imagine their leaders as beans. The head of the Iranian army is a dark old flavour, though he is being used in interesting ways in the chess game of life. Looking at organizations and people in this way can throw up some interesting information (hang on to your taste buds though, while some can taste fine, others need a bit of mouth rinsing).

The Every Flavour Beans approach works on many things, how local schools taste, the taste of local shops and supermarkets, charities, banks, media companies, oil and chemical companies, pharmaceuticals, financial businesses and their products, and countries. It works on commodities, such as tea or coffee products, where the taste of the beans correspond to living and working conditions of the workers (a lot of karma being drunk with some teas and coffees) and impact on the environment. You can try products from different countries where different rules apply. For instance, where the products are genetically modified, pumped with antibiotics and growth hormones. Or whether the products are free range or organic. There is an energy input with food, not just a physical, nutritional one. Plus there is karmic input (just see how animals are treated worldwide, watch the film Lucent about pigs).

So, even though the beans idea is a bit of fun, it can be used to consider some serious stuff. While some people and organizations have your best interests at heart, there are some dark lodge orientated ones that don’t, though they might claim to. Jelly beans are great, they can help to inform you, and inform your choices.

Chew on.

Cocktails Meditation

A slightly different kind of meditation. Spirituality, slightly drunk on light.

 

You sit on the warm, white sand of a beach overlooking the Ocean. It’s first thing in the morning of a new day. You are looking at the sun of a new dawn. You can feel the warmth and light of this brand new offering soak into your skin.

You feel like a drink and ask the Divine bartender for something to quench your thirst (for knowledge!). They look eye-catching with their long glowing white hair, and golden eyes. They take a tall crystal glass, and pour in a splash of bright white light, which is bliss with a hint of infinity. Then they pour in an electric blue of grace, with a moreish aftertaste that lasts and lasts, guaranteed to tickle your soul. In goes a dash of gold, full of bubbles. This drink is a dream. The bartender, with a gleam in their golden eyes, passes their elongated hand over the top of the drink, and in goes a rainbow. Finally, they place in the glass a stick which could be a palm tree, but looks more like the tree of Life.

They pass you the drink, which glows a little, and you drink, and drink again. The Divine bartender watches. Some people sip, while others drink in one. In all, something happens to their heart centre, and more. They feel it from the top of their head, to the tips of their toes, and in all in between. All the while the new dawn sun shines on them with a big constant hello (some people on this beach of white sand notice a little sun growing in their heart).

Well that was some drink. Often the happy beachgoer might ask for another. The Divine bartender ponders what to mix in this brew. Or the beachgoer might ask for a tea, or a coffee to sober up.

The sun of the new dawn shines onto  the beach of white sand.

Silence is more than golden

Someone once stated, “Things that are Real are given and received in Silence.” (It was the same person  who expressed, rather than said as they were silent from 1925 to 1969, ” Don’t worry; be happy”.)

In meditation, it is wonderful to have silence, or possibly Silence, and then it becomes possible to receive the full benefits of meditation.

There are different kinds of silence. There is just being quiet. There is the silence of being in a room in the city. There can be a silence that belongs to the dusk, and the silence that belongs to the dawn, and to the middle of the night. If you have been in the desert, you know the silence there. I was recently in a cave 80 metres below ground. There was a silence, and time felt slower to being above ground. Being in a sound insulated room has a muffled silence, where silence means an absence of noise.

From a spiritual point of view, our 3-D reality (or our multiple dimensional reality), is made up of the physical, astral and the mental levels, so there is not just physical silence, but a much deeper silence. I felt an extremely deep Silence when I visited a room which Meher Baba stayed in. One night, having spoken until that point in his life, he went into the room. The next day he came out of that room and was silent for the rest of his life. The Silence in that room was tangible, and so intense, being Avataric, it gave me a headache. It takes some building up to that level of Silence.

With that kind of Silence, not only do sounds fade, but it becomes a non-emotional moment where feelings are calmed deeply. Mentally, the personality mind goes totally quiet (as does the body-mind), and there feels to be a flow of Silence going around and through.  It feels infinitely big and deep. It wraps around every cell of your body. You relax, let go, go silent, and enjoy the Silence and the energy flow, as it feels like the infinite flowing through. What is Real is given. It is effortless and just happens. There is a spirit of Silence that can be called in.

In meditation, instead of trying to make your mind quiet, just call in the spirit of Silence. This is quite moreish, so having enough will to come back completely, with all aspects of yourself, fully into your body is important.

Try this:
Sit in a quiet, comfortable place. Remember to put down roots out of your feet and spine into the ground. Let the roots be any colour that seems to feel right. This planet has provided your physical body with nutrients, you live in its atmosphere, and within its magnetic and gravitational fields. It is home to you, and you have a deep connection to it. This planet is having an upgrade, and it can interact with you, providing you with energy through your roots, into all your organs, bones, and muscles, and so on.

Once rooted in, now just relax. Ask for, and claim your Silence. Let it wrap around you, like a golden-white weave. Let the light that comes with that Silence flow in. Open to the Silence and the Light.

Silence has its own timing, so that when the energy has completed what needs to be done at that time, the Silence and the feelings that go with it will lift.

After the Silence has lifted, make sure to have good awareness of your body, of your fingers and toes, and your face. Open your eyes.

In one of the early articles on this blog, there are details of how to button up your energy, and the positive energy you have built up.

If you think of Meher Baba as you do this meditation, you can get a taste of Avataric silence, which is quite something.

If you want good quality information about Meher Baba on the internet, as there has been a proliferation of websites, wikis and blogs that are not as accurate, the original websites are http://www.avatarmeherbaba.org , http://www.ambppct.org, http://www.mehercenter.org . Wiki describes Meher Baba as being influenced by some such as Upasni Maharaj. As if having a stone thrown at Meher Baba’s forehead qualifies as being “influenced by”. It did bring his consciousness back down to the gross level, though. And Upasni was really something else; very special.
