/ “There are seven days a week, someday is not one of them.” Live like we are dying, let us live with urgency because the situation is urgent. Live like we are pursuing excellence in a culture of mediocrity. As if we are pursuing love in a culture of indifference because those things matter. They do not matter in terms of turning the ship around. The notion that love being able to turn around a system, a system rooted in indifference for generations back is ludicrous. We are not going to be able to fix this. All we can do is as individuals within a tribe (a group meditaton). Let us act like the tribe matters. Act as if your own lives matter and treat ourselves and treat others with respect. At the edge of extinction only love remains." -McPherson . The human life, a rare opportunity.. From Swami Brahmananda Saraswati (Maharishi’s Teacher, Guru Dev) Teaching #67 A Human Birth Is A Rare Thing.. Now that you have obtained a human body, you should not hold open the possibility that you will come back again to the womb. There is no point to human life if you return again and again to the womb, and the purpose of human birth has not been served. Individual jãvas are infinite in number, but according to the Puràṇas there are 8,400,000 different species. The jãva evolves through this 8,400,000 species, and then attains a human body. Envision a big circular compound composed of 8,400,000 cells. A blind man has been living in one block and wants to come out. Thinking that there must be a door somewhere, he guides himself along the wall, going from one cell to another. Just as he reaches the gate, he removes his hand from the wall to scratch an itch, and he misses the gate by walking further. The secret behind this story is that the blind person is the jãva and the cells are the 8,400,000 species. The human species is the way to emerge from this cycle. When jãva comes to the gate, that is the human species, he starts enjoying wealth, women, children, etc., which is the itching. Like the blind man, he misses the purpose of the human species by wasting time scratching his itch. 102 øàstras says again and again that a human birth is very rare. This does not mean that when we get this rare human body we should pursue wealth, children, and the enjoyment of maximum worldly pleasure. Then there would be no point in the human birth being rare. Humanity is the karma species and other animals (like insects and birds) are the enjoyment (bhoga) species. In the bhoga species, there is no accounting for actions. But whatever action jãva undertakes with the help of a human body will be taken into account and there will be a result of every action. Therefore the human species is very difficult to attain. After transmigrating through 8,400,000 bhoga species we get this human body. Having gained this human body, we can perform such actions as will help to escape the cycle of birth and death so that the wandering of jãva will come to an end and there will be no further chance to suffer in mother's womb. Even the gods (devas) also desire to have a human body, because the human species is like molten gold. Ornaments are not made of pure gold. With a good goldsmith, one can turn gold into valuable ornaments. Such an ornament can raise the value of the gold to the highest level. Gods in heaven are more like such ornaments than they are like pure gold. Once an ornament is made, the value of that gold is fixed. The human species is like pure gold. If he finds the perfect goldsmith, he can attain infinite bliss, experience Parabrahma directly, or he can become Paramàtmà itself, and if this happens, birth as a human being is fulfilled. http://www.lulu.com/shop/lb-shriver-and-translation-by-cynthia-ann-humes/the-sweet-teachings-of-the-blessed-sankaracarya-swami-brahmananda-saraswati/paperback/product-21350609.html http://www.lulu.com/shop/lb-shriver-and-translation-by-cynthia-ann-humes/the-sweet-teachings-of-the-blessed-sankaracarya-swami-brahmananda-saraswati/paperback/product-21350609.html ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : It is an amazing opportunity for a soul, for consciousness incarnate to have, to get a human lifetime. Spirituality may not be someone’s ontological sense of experience but okay the global climate change science becomes this sobering spiritual reminder as we look at it in contrast to so much of rampant materialism and development of the modern world since 1870 that is so related to the atmosphere of global climate change. It is an amazingly narrow atmospheric bandwidth that we human kind (& multicellular life) can exist in and live in on earth (basic 8th grade earth science). The adage for humanity then comes, “Make hay while the sun shines”, spirituality comes up in to mind. Now comes a time to do what you know to do, the ‘knowers of reality’, to meditate, meditate, meditate. Not just some consciousness development but cultivate the spiritual soul, in the heart of a human incarnation in life. This then gets pointed to as an action in life, while you have a life. Yes, what we are finding with this, with the global climate science, is that people seem to turn to their spiritual state as they face more certainly with their mortality. It is interesting to see how people come to spiritual matters as they come to understand the circumstance of such the magnitude of change portended by the science. Archonangel writes: Do I have to be concerned about climate change? The devastating predictions, if true, will come after this body is dead and gone. And now we have people in government, who cannot comprehend the vast body of scientific research on climate change. How would you expect them to understand the piddling small studies about consciousness and its potential relationship with human behavior and intelligence? Some ‘in the mind’ intellectualizing may doubt the spiritual life for some lack of experience and may disrespect the effect of spiritual practice in life. But no, the question is not necessarily how could consciousness sequester carbon from the atmosphere given the face of the global climate change science but it quickly becomes what is someone, anyone, doing with a human lifetime while they have it as while resident in the human species for a moment while this species exists on earth?

And many of those who haven’t are not looking terribly healthy or sane.

Phoenix Rising Hall (Burlington and 3rd). 7:30 PM, Maharishi Effect: Fact or Fiction? David Orme-Johnson, PhD, a leading long-time scientific researcher in the Maharishi Effect, invites you. FW email: I don't feel climate change is (necessarily) scary. It can be sufficiently controlled mainly (not only) by higher Super-Radiance (SR) attendance. My concern has to do with Movement Governors and Sidhas who are not taking SR as important as it is, not prioritizing it as much as they could. There is more power in SR than in the people doing the climate change, gmo, vaccinations, pharmaceuticals, and electromag, etc. Takes a lot of integration to see through. Archer Anangel wrote : Yes there is some good science in meditation research, but seemingly there is not much. Perhaps 1% of the studies meet the gold standard. So out of 700 studies you have seven that are really decent. As the quality of the journal published in goes down, so does the quality of peer review. There are top-level scientists, mid-level scientists, and incompetent scientists. So peer review is a check on quality only if you have good quality reviewers and statisticians to check the math. Really bad quality journals are pay for play, and you can get published even if the study is highly flawed, and the paper may not get any peer review. Meditation studies are a niche market within the field of consciousness studies, and are typically associated with various religious-based movements which are not the best mental platforms on which to implement impartial research. Because most of the meditation research is bad, the baby is getting thrown out with the bath water. Climate science is much more advanced and there is wide consensus that climate change is a serious problem if you ignore politicians and political views. Science on meditation is far behind in getting the kind of consensus we have with climate change. It is the result of a bad approach, using science for marketing rather than knowledge. Promoting bad science in the name of meditation is like offering rotten vegetables in the market. If we like meditation and it benefits us, that does not give us the ability to evaluate the science. Subjective experience and emotion and the results of scientific experiments are often at odds. The best we can say now is meditation looks promising but more research is needed. It is when non-meditating scientists in droves come into the consensual fold that meditation is good for something, then is the point when the case can be made. This is not cynicism, this is the state of affairs. Meditation is great. It is for self-realization. If you are doing meditation for some other reason, you are already halfway to failure. Blame it on Western culture which does not have a good social underpinning for this kind of practice. Actually there is some lot of good science in it, meditation. Peer review. What? Like the global climate science, what, 'all the science is no good because some of the science is no good'? That is what the cynicism offers. That one title said that way in that journal is certainly evil,’Throw it all out because some is bad, poorly done’. This and someone saying it sounds so rational and intellectual except, like tossing in a Trumpism, the underlying assertion is simply not entirely true, a fake news headline in itself.
