Yoga first and most of all is unity of all these different parts in one complete part. This makes all these parts serve the same goal without fighting one another. There are many different paths in order to achieve this. But they all arrive to the same place which is Bhakti, the love that unites all your parts, internal and external and can destroy the egotistical conflict between them. You can take the path of knowledge Jnana Yoga, The path of consciousness & freedom of your will power, Raja Yoga, the path of regaining your lost power, Karma and Hatha Yoga. Try to find inside of you this aspect that loves all, everything, the world, life, all the creatures and the beings of this world and all the paths. Find what inspires you to feel love and put this above everybody and everything else. But do not try to force this to happen. You can not love your self, your life and your path on demand. Never force yourself to love or try to prove to yourself and to others that you love all and everything!
Every part of the brain has permanent telepathic connection with everything which was stored in the memory. When one is thinking negatively for another person he is sending to this person negative vibrations (emotions energy etc). If this person does not have any negative vibes inside of him then the negativity does not find similar link and returns back to the sender. In every case that you have negative emotions about another human being if it happens that you managed to influence him negatively and he or she became also like you it means that there will be conflict in your meeting or if there will be no meeting your negative field will attract other similar vibrations from the surrounding world. In this way also others can start attacking you psycho-energetically.
Our different parts of the brain in this way are tuned to different vibrations & frequencies of psycho-emotional nature and thus are able to attract from the world similar information and energy. The art of the magician is based on this. The mystics and masters create such a point in them that can tune and attract what comes from up Above, from the Higher Astral Worlds. In other words, They enter in higher states of being through mantras, prayers, spiritual feelings, faith, spiritual work, service to the Divine, Higher spiritual Knowledge, philosophy, development of creativity, intuition etc. This more evolved part of the brain gradually starts leading all the rest too. The knowledge of Yoga and all the methods of evolution that exist have the purpose of uniting all of the brain in one part so for the human to become individual – not separated anymore. The path is leading us to overcome the conflict that exists between the external and the internal. In this way one can learn to leave in harmony and in the external world and inside of him simultaneously.
Let always be the will of The Divine Power! AOUM

Between the Leader Lion & the Scapegoat – From Rajas to Tamas there are:
SECOND STORY - Part 1
Once upon a time i went for a long hike inside Taiga (the virgin Siberian forest) with the snow shoes and i got lost. I was walking for a long time and eventually i got very tired. But just in this moment i saw a spot from where i saw a fire and smoke going up to the sky. It was very cold and i decided to go to the Yurta from where i could see the smoke coming. It was already getting dark. I arrived to the Yurta and from there a shaman appeared and told me:
- I am Altai Kam, I am waiting for you for a long time. And today the spirit – Ruler of Taiga - brought you to me because i must transfer to you my shamanic power and knowledge.
The last time i had heard about the knowledge of shamanism but i did not really had any contact with it. Shamanism is an alive study compared with the different religions where the study of the self happened and was documented thousands of years ago and now it is transmitted only through books and scriptures. But the shaman himself communicates with the spirits and receives all the time from them directly new knowledge and inner wisdom. This is why the shaman is an alive teaching himself.
At this point i did not know about my destiny which was waiting for me. Altai Kam started to teach me shamanism and the Kamlanie. During the time of Kamlanie (shamanic journey) i climbed down the roots of the cosmic tree to the underworld. There i found myself sitting inside a boat which was traveling in a river. In the boat there were no oars at all, the river was very dark and it seemed to me that the water was moaning and crying. Next to me in the boat was sitting a man around 50 very tall with dark eyes. He had a serious focused look, he had big black beard and a huge mustache which was going until behind his ears.
- I am Erlik Han, the Master of the Underworld.
- What kind of river is this? - i asked him – And why is it full of this moaning and crying?
- This is the river of the human suffering and tears.
- Why do humans suffer? Why this river is full of their tears?
- The Underworld has to do with the past – said Erlik Han – and all the people on the earth are suffering for yesterday, for the past, for their life which is gone and cannot ever return back. This is why they have these burdens inside them because they remember the past and worry about the fact that it disappeared for good and cannot be experienced again as it was once. When people will understand that they don't have to worry about the past, they don't have to look back into their memories but instead they have to get rid of this terrible habit of the mind then also their tears and sufferings will end.
- But why the boat is going without oars? - i asked – if we will continue like this we will not be able to lead the boat and control it.
- Exactly like this is the fate of people, like the movement of this boat without the oars. Humans cannot govern their fate because they satisfy their every instinct and desire and all the different kinds of stupid thoughts and ideas that come into their minds. They do not have the will power with which they could overcome the thoughts about satisfaction and this is why the boat is going without oars. Here, in this, you can find the human sufferings and this is also something that they have learned in the past in the way they were brought up by the other people.
- In this moment i realized that in order for the suffering to end we need to develop and use our will and get rid of our instincts and fears, our desires and the many thoughts we have in the everyday life. And only then the boat will reach to the sore. And then the tears will not exist anymore in the eyes of people. Then these eyes will not be filled anymore with sentimentality and weakness or with pity about themselves and then they will turn and look forward to the path of self perfection.
In the other shamanic journey i found myself in the upper world. I met there Ulgen, the Master of the upper world. I journeyed for a long time through the cosmic tree which connects all the three worlds and when i arrived i saw some kind of unidentified shadows.
- What are these soft shadows around us? - i asked – or is it that my vision is not working very well here and i cannot see well?
- The upper world is the world of the future – said Ulgen – and here you see the things and the events that must manifest on the earth . When these events will appear on the earth then they will be come clearly visible and identifiable.
- Why here they are not so clearly defined and look like shadows?
- Because the events of fate are not clearly defined yet and they can still change, if the will of man will turn to something else, and in this case the things and events will change their forms
- Does it happen often that the things and events change their shape?
- Practically it almost never happens because human beings who live on the earth do not posses the freedom of will to do that, they are like androids, like robots who surrender in the flow of life's currents which lead them from birth to death and from one problem to another during their whole life.
To Be Continued...
The 3 Levels of Evolution are happening in the body, the mind and the soul or spirit.
The Body - The body is representing the physical, material world. All these three levels are interconnected so it should be obvious in the material world that the spirit and the mind are evolving. How this can happen? It is simple. By observing what is happening in the material level one would be able to see clearly if there is evolution and harmony manifested in his body, actions, relationships and other manifestations. The world is suffering today. We manifest destruction in our world. Many people are talking today about the dangers of overpopulation, pollution of the environment, psychological and other diseases that spread in the world, crime and financial instability. Religious dogma, hatred, wars... It is obvious in the world that we are manifesting that which harm our planet and our societies. But individually one should be able to see what is he or she doing in his own body and manifested life and in the world around him. Problems and other diseases should be the sign of non-unity between the 3 levels of evolution and subsequently this should trigger the desire to evolve these 3 levels in one's life! Think about what happens when you are in conflict with or destroy things in your own world. Are you becoming more satisfied? Are you becoming more clear? Are you becoming more intrinsically happy?
The Mind - This should be clear. The mind with a lot of thoughts in it, it is obscure, clouded. One should be simply thinking about what is there, in the world around him and in his inner state and work or use the circumstances around him in order to create evolution and unity. Clarity of the mind is the sign of manifested evolution. Too many thoughts, obscure thoughts or dark inner space means war between the 3 different parts that create our human experience. So one should be obviously choose to start a path of cleansing of this manifested war and obscurity and evolve in the direction of unity. Just think the fact that nothing will come on its own and that things don't get better on their own accord over time. Clarity breeds clarity and war breeds more of the same. If you want to satisfy your self in the sense of being more clear about yourself and your life's path you need to seriously undertake the path of your evolution.
The Soul or Spirit - It is our consciousness. Consciousness functions with very High - Subtle Level of energy. The Sensation of presence ( i am ) is our consciousness and this should be present constantly in us with no interruptions. If a man would be present then he would be able to foresee that what he is doing will produce a certain result and he would be able to see if it is in his own best interest to proceed in his actions or not. He would be able to foresee that if i will do this or that i will harm my self or the others or the nature or the society and the opposite: if i will do this or that i will bring happiness joy and completion. So a man who can see like this what is happening around and inside is more or less conscious and such a man can govern himself and his own actions. Usually when a man was in the sleep of consciousness and wakes up first he starts seeing the craziness and conflicted state of his own mind and that hurts him a lot but in doing that, in awakening of his sleep one secures that very soon he will be on his way of evolution of these 3 parts, the mind the soul and the physical body and as a result of all of these the surrounding world. If one is sufficiently awakened he or she cannot over pass this realization that now is the time for such a work with ourselves. Very soon this will be obvious in our world and the people who will be way established in their own journey of awakening will be sufficiently secure and safe in their evolution which is going to pass anyway through turbulence and external difficult moments. Our world is changing and the times are calling us to step up and out of the crowds and awake to the better. Take this path and help to wake up the people around you. This is the will of the Divine Power and the path of the evolution of these 3 levels of our today's life!!
Namaste - Be Blessed!
'As the New Year's Eve approaches we all are preparing ourselves to receive the New Year and celebrate the finish of the old and the beginning of the New. We have all learned during our lives what this celebration really means: basically drinking more, over-eating, having an excuse to do what ever we want with no limit and doing all these meaningless things that we did not do the rest of the days in the year. Following all these, the next day, comes a heavy, low and dark state of being and deep tiredness with a feeling of vanity. This is the way that the collective unconsciousness works inside human beings during the celebration of the New Year's Eve but also in other similar celebrations. Of course in a spiritual community all the celebrations should be held completely differently. First of all one has to be in a higher state, to be in the state of prayer much more than any other moment or day. Some people who follow the path of consciousness they willingly do not celebrate this day but instead they pray, make fasting or meditate and do every practice that they normally do in the daily life in order to erase this program of the unconscious New Year's Eve night of having fun. Some others don't do this but instead they do rituals during the whole night. What are these rituals? When one enters in deep meditative state or state of prayer and during the whole night consciously starts remembering what he has done the previous year and tries to clean inside of him and heal all the unconscious things he has done realizing more and more his biggest weaknesses or mistakes. He then enters in state of prayer in order to build inside the determination and motivation in order to develop the upcoming year the best part in him, the highest qualities that he finds and which exist inside of him. In such inner state the person passes the whole New year's Eve doing a revision of his life or a shamanic journey. Of course most important of all is not the exact ritual or way you choose to celebrate but basically to remain in very high state of consciousness and not become unconscious following the herd. The most evolved people though who are free from all these programs, in these days of celebration, are in a mystical unity with the Universe cultivating very big intentions for the world, for the people, for the spiritual work and for serving the Divine Power. They create new paths for the transformation of the whole humanity, for the future of the children and for happiness and harmony in our planet. Of course in order to celebrate in such a way one needs to be in such a level of consciousness and feel the necessity to do so in his being. In such a state a man cannot think about himself or his personal achievements but instead he feels the flow of the Divine Will and the good of all people as he is motivated by unconditional love. And this is the difference between the social and the spiritual celebration of the special days.
Wishes for a wonderful New Year to ALL!!
The average person has many preconceived ideas about what Tantra is and is basically ignorant. The average person assumes that it is all about sexual promiscuity, or sexual liberation and sexual freedom, the opposite of celibacy (brahmacharya). However in reality such opinions are very far away from the truth. Tantra and brahmacharya are two sides and two stages of one and the same way: Yoga
So what is Brachmacharya and what is its role in the way of Tantra? Brachmacharya or celibacy is a method of reserving sexual energy. This does not just mean that sexual intercourse in the literal sense is stopped, it also necessitates the cessation of the sexual imagination, as well as all the other hidden and apparent forms that sexual energy manifests in, such as loose chatter, inner monologue, anxiety about the physical body, tension, negative emotions, vanity and the like.
Once a Yogi has mastered this art of controlling the sexual energy, he passes on to the second stage of the way which is Tantra. At this level he increases his energy by practicing a special technique to the point where the energy having no way of realizing itself in the lower levels, reaches up to the spiritual dimensions taking his consciousness with it. This is called the rising of Kundalini. Practiced separately these two stages will not give any result. We are talking about control of the energy, not asceticism or looseness and clearly not the fanatical following of religious canons or dogmatic following of ancient scriptures and texts without understanding their real meaning which is always much more simple and close to existential truths rather than mystical higher “truths” for few chosen ones.
Now we will move on to the esoteric aspect of the teaching. Kundalini Shakti, is not only a creative power of nature but a potent form of energy which can enslave an individual, subordinating his consciousness to the instincts given to his body by nature to fulfill the conscious aims of the Universe for its evolution. In truth man is born and lives to maintain a definite order in the Universe. He breeds offshoots of himself to provide nature and later also society with the energy and dynamism needed to sustain them. Once he has fulfilled this role and used up his energy he dies and passes over to the next incarnation to fulfill similar circles. Sexual energy is the highest power which exists in the human organism. When the natural urges such as the consumption of food, provision of warmth and so on are satisfied, other urges begin to stir in him and demand satisfaction. These are the most advanced desires such as sex, self expression, knowledge, understanding etc. All these activities are in fact connected with sexual energy, which manifests on different levels. The social environment has developed more and more advanced means of restricting all these manifestations of sexual energy in these more advanced levels and direct its expression in the external material world through the created networks of excessive consumption, culture, etc.
The Yogi understands the purposes and intentions of these instinctive and social mechanisms and therefore begins deliberately and consciously regulating the movement of Shakti in his organism. In this way he acquires his independence from both nature and society by developing from inside the control of energy. He can then start to direct and use this energy for his own spiritual perfection. It is a basic fact that the workings of the intellect, emotions and perception depend upon energy. When we control our sexual energy with our own will, we become free of its power over us. Then we can move beyond the world of illusion – Maya. What is Maya? It is the sum of all our limited perceptions and narrowness of mind.
Beside Shakti, which flows through nature (Prakritoshakti), there is another form called Paramashakti which is the Highest Spiritual Power – The Holy Spirit. The ordinary man who is weighed down with all his base and limited desires, or to be more exact the effects of the movement of Prakritoshakti in him, cannot touch upon Divine Spirituality. To reach up to these heights a man needs to attain complete inner harmony and peace of mind and heart, which come as a consequence of having controlled the waves of his lower instinctive energies. This development of the human organism and state of inner being can only be achieved through the practice of yoga.
Yoga and all religions are not ends in themselves, enforcing orthodoxy and religious ceremony on people. When correctly understood they are the means to comprehending and experiencing the reality of the Highest Divine Power. When an individual reaches this point of clarity he becomes transformed from the crazed half-animal, half-human to a divine being, which is liberated from the boundaries and limitations of the material world.
The Divine Power oversees the involution and evolution of all Nature. Any transformation is the result of the influence of Divine Power. It is only this power which can induce change in a man – he cannot change by himself. What he does have the power to do, however, is to start managing his lower energies and open himself up to the influence of Divine Paramashakti. These truths are generally known in religious philosophy, but they still remain only words and texts. Without practical and correct use these teachings remain remote and misunderstood. This is so because the power, once attained, is so great that if it were put in hands of an undisciplined man could destroy the entire world in a very short time. In accordance with the cosmic laws, only a few can grasp this power and freedom, otherwise the harmony of the universe would be disrupted.
So dear friend, you who is reading this text, you must know that you are a great soul. Take the chance in this life to attain freedom, to realize the meaning of your existence. Do not wait and waste your life because there is not so much time to understand the truth. And in the end only the soul remains.
Be Blessed, Namaste!
