  1. @Dumuzzi , thank you. Yes, that is what I am doing by asking for her help and placing my trust in Durga. Then every now and then I wonder if I connected to her at all. Perhaps, I first need to ask her to somehow show me that a connection has been made :).
  2. @Dumuzzi , thank you for this. Since the last message from Inanna on how best to raise the kundalini, I have tried many times to pray to her in the form of Durga during meditation and can't tell if I have been heard or if I am doing it effectively. What does Inanna mean by this: "Many on your earth need healing and I have passed our healing method to you, separately. " Als this sounds wonderful: "You may call upon us at any time, simply using our names, intent, energy and the power of concentration. Say our names three times and we will come." I would like to ask Inanna how we can make sure that we call her with sufficient "energy and power of concentration". What counts for "sufficient"? If I try a few times with all my heart and it doesn't work, I will assume that I am not able to invest sufficient energy and concentration into the effort and, therefore, Inanna is out of my reach. Is it something only people who have been meditating successfully for many years (like you had) are able to do?
  3. The Polish composer Henryk Gorecki is superb. His Symphony No 3 is on the Psilocybin playlist I posted above. Hear this:
  4. @Mattie , I just bumped up the music thread for you.
  5. @justfortoday , could you please tell us about yourself or your spiritual journey thus far. Do you meditate, for example? Have you had other spontaneous experiences previously?
  6. @Dumuzzi , your reaction to the acceptance of your dual nature led to a very forceful experience. Perhaps in your case, because you had placed strong psychological barriers to suppress your less palatable side, the demolishing of these barriers was a big step forward for you. This may not be the case for others who kinda accept they are a bit of a chaotic mix of good and bad and are ok with it. So if there is a mental fusion or acceptance of one's dual nature waiting to occur, it won't represent such a big step in achieving Godhood. Would you agree?
  7. @Dumuzzi , this is very interesting! Would you please say more about what you mean by "I fused my dualities, the opposing forces that were previously fighting for dominance in me and became Non-Dual." What is it that you actually did and how was the process triggered? I am looking to understand the details of the process. Re people denying their evil or less godly side, could you give examples? In my case, my less godly side would be losing my temper or getting irritated by people I encounter or disliking certain members of my family. I would prefer not to do that and think of them in a more understanding or generous way. But can't think of anything less godly. Once or twice I've wondered whether it would do the world a good for someone to kill certain country leaders. So, how would I fuse this side of me with the good? Isn't accepting that one has a variety of thoughts and responses enough?
  8. None of what anyone is saying is responding to the basic question - How can God allow such injustice and pain to exist? It is pain and injustice in the eyes, feelings and nerves of the person in pain, who lives and functions in the 3D world - which is of God's creation.
  9. This in Philosophy is known as the problem of evil. It goes like this: If God exists, then God is omnipotent, omniscient, and morally perfect. If God is omnipotent, then God has the power to eliminate all evil. If God is omniscient, then God knows when evil exists. If God is morally perfect, then God has the desire to eliminate all evil. Evil exists. If evil exists and God exists, then either God doesn’t have the power to eliminate all evil, or doesn’t know when evil exists, or doesn’t have the desire to eliminate all evil. Therefore, does this mean that God doesn’t exist or that God is not who we think she is? Read more here: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/evil/
  10. There has been discussion in this thread on how to keep count of no of kriya breaths etc. Traditionally, the way to keep count has been to use a mala or rosary - the Indian mala (rosary) usually made of sandalwood beads has 108 beads, which is the number used in Kriya Yoga. Just checked why the number 108 is significant: "Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters. Such phenomena have given rise to many examples of ritual significance. According to yogic tradition, there are 108 pithas, or sacred sites, throughout India. And there are also 108 Upanishads and 108 marma points, or sacred places of the body." So now we know.
  11. @moon777light , you referred to a book you were waiting for on page 1 of this thread. which bok was it, please?
  12. @Dumuzzi , beautiful and inspiring! Thank you so much .
