“Thou shall not murder!” That seems like a good idea, and yet… As much as we resist eXPeRiencing it, we may recognize the basic truth that life is violence: do not thousands of children die every day? Doesn’t getting old suck? And whether we are on a vegan diet or not, do not teeth chew, grind and crush? Yet the real question is: how do we feel and thus stop the abuse that we inflict on ourselves and others; the undue violence of responding to bullying by being a thug ourselves?

Whereas many of us would agree that meditation is a great tool to begin answering the question, we will eventually wonder on how to extend our morning and evening practices to a meditative life, where our speech and actions are 24/7 pure, that is, undivided! That would infer releasing the need of the ego to dominate the other/the world. It will require to a total paradigm shift!

On that note, perennial teachings, as mapped out by both the Hindu and the Hebrew Tree of Life, speak of the presence of parallel worlds: it is not so hard to imagine, especially as quantum mechanics has now proven and explained at length how the atom – a.k.a. the “Adam” (:-)) – jumps from one plane of awareness into another, simply by absorbing or giving energy…Therefore, the more I for-give the bullying that I was submitted to, the more elegantly I can jump into a parallel reality, and “receive” a nobler version of me. That parallel world is what Jewish religion terms “the Promised Land,” and what mysticism eXPeRiences as the 3rd eye opening – when to transcend seeing double!

Surprise, surprise: the jumping point into the Promised Land out the three lower worlds (where I feel trapped into the insanity of doing the same thing, expecting different results) is through the Black W/hole which we eXPloRed in our last show. That Black W/hole is the mouth chakra of the Tree of Life: how deep we will allow ourselves to go down that rabbit w/hole is how authentic our knowledge of the Self will be. Where our last show was on the theory of the mouth chakra, this next show is on the eXPeRiential side of it…

Let’s fasten our seat belts, and feel how we can biblically know the Self by going through the subtle gate and the Lost Symbol of the mouth. We will start at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday and will inquire on P32 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have downloaded the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great!  If not, you may always listen to the archive or join us for our other New Essene shows via Elevate the Soul radio.
