Conversation From the Fairfield satsang.. Q: David Spero is very good at a transmission of soul energy but this other, he is not directly of this other process of spiritual body, subtle body and cultivating those processes as the heart-mind and such as Janet, Matt, or Cynthia particularly entail it. A: You can see why because all that can become distracting in itself. It is funny, one sort of chooses one distraction for another. It used to be that it was meditation, meditation, meditation in the meditating community until it became more multi-formed in a coming on of ‘Vedic Sciences’. ..That is because we needed to have the elevated value of this, the beautiful. Then is the sublime value of the Divine masculine, it is this open mind, it is this capacity of consciousness itself, the experience of the silence. But it is only part of what needs to happen in this process. In David there is a type of unification in process in what unity is, there is both. In what makes unity unity is not just infinite unbounded silence but infinite unbounded silence and infinite unbounded dynamism together at the same time. Not one or the other but both wedded. That is what Cynthia Bourgeault was talking about with this ecstatic languaging in Christianity, that there is a way it gets language-ed historically.

Is able to trigger that palpably in people. He is very effective at transmitting this. A: That is the first track Matt Kahn is describing, that is what the first group is. That is that job. His job is the first ascension group. He is out there holding the light, that is his job. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : In FF satsang: ..Don’t get hung up on Matt Kahn’s goofy shirts that he wears. or his delivery. But Matt Kahn is cheering on those of us who are so interested in and have been dedicated to spiritual development, the Big “S” Spiritual development, upliftment. That it is not for nothing. That because as one has been engaged in it that it is not useless in this world or it is frivolous or inconsequential to what needs to happen here. That actually it holds the vibration and holds the criminal element back. He says that it is all part of one light, even the ones who are asleep. They are all still of the light. It is very uplifting. He has quite a construct of understanding, as a teacher at another level, as a native adept, like Janet Sussman. He is both very practical and advaitin-like in a way he strips down to the essentials, stripping the constructs, the excess to get to the essentials, the essential value of nonduality, which Cynthia very astutely gets to. . ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : The FF Satsang continuing, over coffee: “..They are meant to be together (head and heart) . You don’t abdicate the head, the brain, the mind or the heart, they are together, the ‘masculine and feminine’..” Q: it sets up a duality talking about this, identifying it. A: What Matt Kahn points out is that there are people on various tracks, we are all on ascension tracks, we are all in tracks, this is not a better than the other. The first track is the one is where the people are standing in light where the people are light bearers. Where people are light holders. The people who are in consciousness where they are standing there in the light and that is their main job. Being light holders. Then you have the second track, which is people who are becoming activated by what they see as problems in the world and they are going to look for social justice solutions, constructs, and so they are activated, and then a third track of people asleep. The third track is people who are always up to technology, on their phones, who their reference is always the phone, IT, technology. Light holders, social construct, and then the asleep who are willing and wanting to wed themselves to technology. Matt Kahn is saying we all have our place in this, we are all in to this together. In his view this is going to become very clear in the next two years, unambiguous. These Three general tracks is how people are going to be moving forward. He says there are people just waiting to have apps in their heads, for there to be apps, downloaded and become wedded to their technology, some kind of artificial intelligence. FF Coffee haus Satsang: “You have to love this, I love this that there she was at SAND. Wow! Thank god that someone is finally speaking to this.” Q: The TM neuroscience people would be studying this if he had an apparatus to do it, the heart-mind? A: “They do but they are brain-centric. “..In this discussion of spirituality Matt Kahn has a good description, embedded in the discussion of the expression of spirituality he says, and this makes sense, that we are moving from a third dimensional reality to a 5th dimensional reality. The third dimensional reality is dominated by the mind and the fifth dimensional reality is dominated by the heart. So you have the head and the heart, 3rd and 5th, and how to get there is through here, the connecting of the head and heart. The connectivity is what Janet Sussman identifies as the ‘articulation’ between the two, the communication between the two where you are moving from the third dimension of the mind and its constructs to the non-linear value of the fifth. It does make sense that we are moving from a third dimensional reality to a fifth. The third dimensional reality, it is that we are dominated by the mind. The fifth dimensional reality is dominated by the heart. How do you get between the two? The fourth dimension is time. We are moving through that, the throat area , expression. The connectedness, the ‘articulation’, as Janet says it. What you see in the advaitins and the TM people is that it is all about the brain, the head and the mind. Some Buddhists too, some of the Buddhist practices are very head centered. The The third eye is insight and the throat area, the 4th, is poetry, speaking, the expression between the two, the fourth dimension. The vehicle, this part, the fourth dimension is time. So you are moving from the concrete three dimensional world of the mind and its constructs to the non-linear value of the fifth. So this is what you see in spiritual development, this makes so much sense. This is where the advaitins are, this is where the TM people are, in the head, the mind, all in the head. Brain, Brain, Brain. It is all in the head. Very head centric. Some of the Buddhist practices can be very head centric, You have to love this, I love this that there she was at SAND. Wow! Thank god that someone is finally speaking to this. Maybe others have spoken to this at SAND. Janet spoke there at SAND. But this woman she has all the credentials, the cred. Unfortunately Janet does not have the credentials like Cynthia has to be heard. A doctorate, a teacher professor at BU. It was gorgeous what Cynthia did there. Very profound. She packed so much in to that half hour, it is kind of mind-blowing. It is worth listening to again. Valuable. What Matt Kahn is talking about is what she would call the “heart-mind”, bringing the head in to the heart. It is the same thing. They are talking about the same thing. He was just talking about it in a more esoteric process where she was talking about it identifying it with this cultivation practice. These are ways of speaking to it. " # FF Satsang replies, over coffee.. "These are Constructs that are helpful, where Cynthia Bourgeaut’s construct is very beautiful but body based, physical body, physical heart.. So like TM’ers had they have gone from the physical brain, brain-centric to the physical heart, heart-centric. Not that they, the physical heart and brain, are not players in this; but this idea that it is in the physical heart, where it is in the subtle structures of the heart.. It’s resonance, its genesis is in the subtle system of the heart and this is going to impact the structure of the physical heart just like consciousness is going to impact the activity of the brain. This is why you get brain coherence, global brain coherence. But it is not the waves that are coherent it is just as the consciousness and its indication of the influence of consciousness on the brain, the influence of the heart just like the genesis of love in the heart there is going to be a physical correlate in the heart. As there is an indication of love in the heart, a generative process, there is going to be a physical correlate. Q: ‘Generative process’, is that the term she uses, A: no that is my term.." https://sites.google.com/site/chakraheartmeditation/ https://sites.google.com/site/chakraheartmeditation/ Replies in the (spiritual) FF coffee house satsang: “..a cultivating the heart-mind, people are coming to terms with this however they do. People find reference points that are useful to themselves, alignments to deal with it however they do. Whether they find another teacher or this beautiful practice of this ‘heart-mind’.

Someone commentating about Fairfield from afar, “The infrastructure he put in place in N. America has fallen apart, with few pandits and dropping numbers in the domes. Perhaps there is some destiny for a rougher transition.” Quoting: “..if the MUM process fell apart, then it is because each of us as individuals has gained more influence over the environment. It doesn't really make sense that we are gaining light on the planet, and the sustaining element if it is such, at MUM would fall apart. ..I think it is simply obsolete.”.end quote .. .. Contentious, – you told us about some such groups in town with whom you recently met who are planning group meditations (TM, or mostly TM) on the night before the election in the hope if creating some positive effect. Like, really? I would suggest that you tell them that they would have a much stronger effect by coming to the Dome at least once daily every day from now on, and keep coming. If they think their group meditations will have an effect, then (in the same breath) they cannot say that the Dome groups don’t! ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : I was at a meeting a couple of nights ago of about 25 people at Janet Sussman’s new Fairfield house.

I had never heard of a yagya before but after resarching see that it is a fire ritual/offering. Is this open to others that may not be students of Pundit Sharma such as myself? Blessings to you. Ans: Sorry to find this too late. Yes, a lot of very spiritually practiced folks showed up. Yes, with lots of spiritual things going on in this little town most of us who live here in the meditating community look to the Thursday edition of The Fairfield Weekly Reader to find what is up. With the WR those of us who actively live here get our day-timers out and then plan what to show up at for the week. It is a busy place. As you show up at various functions and then get on e-mail lists there becomes its own web of notice for what is interesting to you and actively coming up. The Fairfield Weekly Reader is a good way to find interesting groups that are already doing things in Fairfield. Also the boards at Everybody's, the Noodle House and Thai Deli and other places for poster notices of what is going on. Mostly there are already groups that function like guilds 'doing things' in Fairfield. It just takes some initiative to show up and find like minded people already here.. arts, writing, business, nature, garden, music, recreation, fitness, spiritual practice. Hope to meet you soon at something.
