Hi new morning, You may have misunderstood me here. I also, like many here think this is a great post of yours. I did not mean to say, that the point is the heart chakra. My post was also with reference to another post of Lawson, who had said that there is no technique at all, were on would have one's attention at a physical location. My post was only meant to confirm that there is, or actually was. I got this technique about a year before I left Purusha from Nandkishore. He showed me the exact location, and denied it was the heart, it actually isn't. To be honest with you, I never practised this technique, it just didn't fit. I just had had major openings in a completely different area, at the top of my head, or rather above. I would have had to force myself to do it the way Nandk. indicated. I asked him about that, that my awareness would be automatically drawn to a different area, but he insisted, I should do it the prescribed way. This was no option for me, and I simply dismissed it. Now I hear that the technique is not taught in this way anymore, for whatever reason. For me, it continues that the shakti moves within my system, and my awareness is automatically directed in this way. This does involve what I would call chakras, mostly the anahata, the sahasrada and the anja. The sahasrada is dominant, the heart comes second, and the anja, inbetween, almost a connecting link is third. The explanations which work for me best, is that of Sri Aurobindo. I am saying that this is so for me, I am not suggesting that others should copy this, in fact this would be impossible, like it would be impossible for me, to do it otherwise. It's simply the way it 'happens' for me. So, comparing it to how TM used to be, before these experiences, I would call it a soft, gradual approach. The transcending, as I used to experience was a gradual quieting, and then slipping into something 'larger', a space of pure awareness. Now, it is more like a switch, more sudden, can occure at different times, and is accompanied by a very powerful energy. There are actually different switches. This energy is always with me, in different strength. I am just pointing this out, that my experience is very different from before, and that it's going its own way. <snipped the rest of your brilliant post> To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!'
