    Which house would rule the idea of God?

    When there is a belief, whether monotheistic or polytheistic, that's still in the realm of the mind and duality (9th house). In the 12th house, there is no duality, there is no you and God (or whatever you want to call it) as separate entities, there is just oneness, advait (not two). Astral...

    Which house would rule the idea of God?

    The idea of God, together with the concept of religion, is the 9th house. However, I would assign spiritual realization, whether one of the eastern traditions as well as mystical experiences in Christian, Sufi or Kabbalah traditions to the 12th house as it requires the dissolution of the mind...

    Excerpts from Swami Sivananda's book "Jnana Yoga": A Jivanmukta or Sat-Guru is a blessing to the world. He is a torch-bearer of wisdom or divine light. He is a spiritual lighthouse to shed light to those who move in the ocean of ignorance... ...He is extremely humble. He appears to be quite an...

    Random Thoughts, strictly Text

    Tesla certainly didn't fit the 3rd criteria. He was centuries ahead of his historical era and he was so disappointed with humanity's current ideals (greed, selfishness, material possessions) that he spent the last 40 years of his life feeding pigeons.

    Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

    True. Still, the majority of beings think they are their body. What is even harder to grasp is that consciousness is not in the body. It is the body that is in consciousness, together with all this what we call the Universe. And what is really a tough nut to crack, impossible without direct...

    Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

    How someone who knows through HER OWN EXPERIENCE that SHE IS NOT THE BODY and that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO NOT EXIST looks and talks. Notice the smile, notice the relief, liberating empowerment and understanding such experience can bring, although this is just scratching the surface of true nature...

    The influence on the mind of another person in close proximity is automatic and effortless. It requires no intention, it just happens by itself. Psychic communication on a distance is a completely different phenomenon.

    Knowing the minds of others is one common minor siddhi (spiritual power) that may appear as a result of spiritual practice. I don't know if what you are suggesting is possible. However, realized yogi/saint can influence the state of mind of another person just by being in close proximity. He...

    The goal of every meditation technique is to arrive in a state where the object of meditation, the subject (mind) and the process itself merge into one. In a sense, the whole method has been devised in order to trick the mind into disappearing. What's left, if successful, is pure awareness, your...

    1.13 Meditate on this: “I am Awareness alone--Unity itself.” Give up the idea that you are separate, a person, that there is within and without. 15.4 You are not the body. You do not have a body. You neither do nor enjoy. You are Awareness only--the timeless Witness. You are free. Go in...

    I know. I am merely pointing out that imagining "the Source" as something different from yourself is an unnecessary step since you are already limitless existence. In this way, you are feeding the ego with the false notion that you are a small limited body/ego and there is something greater "out...

    True. There is no need to imagine anything. Different traditions merely use different words to represent one and the same thing. "The Source" = Emptiness = Brahman = God = Consciousness = Self = You (not to be confused with ego personality) You are real.

    Will my son obtain his high school diploma in june?

    Is this the right chart? Who's asking the question? If you asked then your son is the 5th house (Venus). Venus is in 6th house, showing his difficulty to act. The diploma is the radical 9th house (Saturn). Higher education is general, universal thing. It doesn't "belong" to your son, turning the...

    List of Erroneous, Illogical and Fictitious Systems in Astrology

    We still possess those abilities, we never lost them. They are just harder to manifest and harder to bring forth from within ourselves. This is because this reality is solidifying (in lack of a better term) more and more and there is an ever-increasing time gap between intention/visualization...
