Love is one of the fundamental realities of God. By discovering love, we discover the existence of God. Love is Its essential "substance". The infinite energy of love comes from God and creates everything that is good, divine, harmonious, true, ecstatic. All the wonderful manifestations contain in themselves the mysterious and deeply unifying energy of love. When love is in all of us, then we are all in God. The ineffable energy of love is the endless and all-powerful source of harmonious life that manifests as happiness, joy, compassion, goodness and ecstasy. Everything that is good, beautiful and true exists through the mysterious energy of love. And nothing that is truly sublime can exist and maintain itself without the energy of love.
Everything that is uplifting, God-like and enchanting contains this mysterious energy of love. The energy of love is endless and eternal and both the source and the ultimate purpose of all beings that aspire for God. The human being that is often nourished on love, evolves much faster toward perfection, enlightenment and union with God.
The human being that gives up love (due to egoism and stupidity) separates itself from one of the essential energies of God and thus takes the road toward dispersion and self-destruction since then it loses its coherence and cohesion.
Love and Freedom are inseparable, since without Freedom we cannot talk about love, but about constraint.
Love is an essential criterion and at the same time the quickest method of harmonious development of the human being. If there is great love, the Total Reality of God is reflected in the Microcosm of our being.
Whoever doesn't love at all must not be surprised that he will not be loved at all.
Whoever loves little, little will he be loved.
Whoever loves a lot, a lot will he be loved.
Whoever loves endlessly, without end will he be loved.
If you yearn to be loved much, you must remember that for this you must love much in the first place.
Sooner or later you will be offered the love that you deserve, measured on the same scale as the love that you have given. Even if somebody overwhelms you with a great love, you will not be able to receive it unless you truly deserve it. When you are truly prepared to receive endless love that is deep, overwhelming and sublime, then a person will come into your life who is able to offer this deep, overwhelming and sublime love.
If you love an ideal archetype with intensity, deeply and overwhelmingly. And if you have no lover for the time being that can return this love. In a wonderful way you are actually preparing yourself (consciously or not) for the moment when you will encounter a person that will give you the love for which you did everything to deserve.
Let's not forget that love without a solid foundation of truth is like a chaotic water flow in a river without banks.
Great love and a perfect transfiguration makes our lover ever more beautiful.
When you love enough, you discover first of all what is beautiful and wonderful in the person you love. In front of the one who loves with passion beauty unveils itself and grows through continuous transfiguration. Each human being falls in love with a person that complements and fulfill him / her. The human being that we love passionately is our beauty for us. For anyone who lacks spiritual intuition, a beautiful face and a beautiful body can hide an evil soul.
Transfiguration shows us that beauty is the child of love.
A heart that is constantly in love with everything that is beautiful, true and good, will never grow old. Beauty alone without grace, lacks attractiveness. Beauty combined with grace gives charm and makes the person almost irresistible. Beauty without goodness and intelligence is like flat beer that was opened the night before. Beautiful women are seldom wise.
Beauty lasts until ugliness starts to set in, but wisdom (once attained) lasts forever. A person that is only beautiful is good to look at, but with a person that has wisdom is easy to live, since this person can help you to awaken from ignorance and become wise and happy.
Youth has a beautiful face and body, but wisdom makes the mind and soul beautiful. A charming woman with a beautiful body is a mute recommendation of Mother Nature.
Beautiful persons must be very lucid and attentive since arrogance is easily awaken when you are beautiful, and then vanity replaces beauty.
Give up wickedness, egoism, envy, jealousy, vanity, impatience, hate, lack of tolerance, stupidity. Don't forget that when love becomes infinite, the impossible becomes easily feasible. Don't forget that, as the Romanian sculptor Brancusi said, "When we stop being like a child, we are already dead". This is why you should awaken and amplify the child within. In this way you will become and stay forever young. Being all the time like a child and staying young is a wonderful gift that every one of us can receive.
Samuel Ullman wrote in "Youth": "Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind" (in the Yogic language, a resonance with the beneficial subtle energies of youth). He also wrote:
"Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over a life of ease."
"You do not become old just because you lived a certain number of years. You become old because you turned away from your love and your high ideal. Years wrinkle your skin. Giving up your high ideal wrinkles your soul.
Petty preoccupations, doubt, suspicion, fear and desperation are our insidious enemies that slowly make us round-shouldered and transform us into dust even before we die.
Young is that person who loves always and being very curious is continuously amazed and discovers many mysteries where other people don't see anything out of the ordinary. This person always asks questions, such as 'Why?', 'What happens next?', etc. Such a person determines the events of his life through his creative thinking and always finds new happiness in the divine play of life.
You are as young as your love and faith.
You are as old as your isolation and doubt.
You are as young as the greatness of your self-confidence and hopes.
You are as old as your discouragement.
You will always stay young as long as you will be full of love and goodwill and open towards everything that is beautiful, good, true, great and divine. Receptive to the voice of love, to the people around you, to the infinite and to God.
If, in spite of all, your heart will be bitten by pessimism one day and tormented by cynicism because you did not heed this advice, may the good Lord have mercy upon your old and rigid heart!"
In the New Testament, St. Paul says the following about love (Corinthians 13): "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and I have not love, I am as sounding as brass or a tingling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge - and though I have all faith so that I could move mountains, and I have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have no love, it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth long and is kind. Love envieth not. Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. Love doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own fulfillment, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in truth. Love beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall end. Whether there be tongues, they shall cease. Whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect cometh, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away children things. For now we see through a glass, darkly - but then face to face. Now I know in part - but then I shall know even as also I am known. And now there are these three left: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of them is Love."
- (World Events)
These days, winds of political revolution sweep over large parts of the world. People who are unhappy with their situation usually think that political change will transform their lives for the better. Spirituality teaches us that this is only a trick of our minds – real change must always come from within. The external problems are the reflection of our inner problems. If we don’t solve our inner problems, no matter what step we take in the world – the end result will be the same. The following article illustrates superbly the inner spiritual mechanisms which are the causes for the unrest in the world, and points out that unless the necessary spiritual transformations take place – no exterior revolution will bring peace. - Natha.net editor

“In capitalism we deal with the exploitation of man by man. But in communism the situation is inverted.“
(Urban folklore from the communist period in Romania)
I wrote this post before the development of tensions in the Arabic countries and the Middle East. Considering the recent events in Egypt, Tunis, Libya, I can see that the post fits the current climate very well.
While the winds of revolution are sweeping away the sand castles of the different regimes in the Arabic countries everything seems to be heading towards the victory of democracy and the expression of the legitimate aspirations of the citizens of those countries… Still I cannot help but notice that there are many signs pointing to what has become the true lesson of history today – the exterior revolution is not a solution without a powerful and successful interior revolution – …and history tends to repeat itself.
Apparently the people are the winners of the street confrontation, but nowadays more and more realize that it is not the people who have gained freedom in Egypt, but those who have used the force of the masses to their advantage (and time will prove again if this was a correct statement). Therefore, today’s revolutionary wave is different from the events in 1989 when, due to the waves of naive enthusiasm, the sinister masquerades of the anti-communist revolutions in Eastern Europe appeared to be genuine even when the hideous smile of those who had cheated the youth of the revolution became obvious.
But at a closer look one can easily see that the present events in the Middle East are nothing more than a “1989” scenario skillfully adjusted to the reality of those countries. And it is interesting to notice that the story starts back 200 years, in the 1789?s French (Masonic) Revolution. In the present context the stakes are proportionally bigger and so is the importance of the actions taken by the CIA-MOSSAD (one cannot be so naive to believe that these events are just left loose by these vectors of the occult power) to destabilize this region in order to consolidate their position in the area and to diminish the support-base of Iran. The multiplying or empowering factor for these vectors of occult power is the people themselves who can now be easily driven to protest on the streets for ideals such as freedom. If we consider also the mass manipulation by using of HAARP devices (fact already becoming almost official) we can foresee the picture of the final destination of these events.
This article is written as a continuation of the comments to the movie “Invisible Empire“. In the previous comments I stated that I do not agree with the nearly desperate urgent calls by the film’s creator to act on the street. As promised, I will explain here, the statements that I made at that time. However one should bear in mind, from the beginning, that it is not only a logical problem to consider for it is directly reflected in our daily life and i consider that the understanding of these aspects can bring us closer to a more harmonious life in this world.
Today there are increasingly more people (from those who promote the truth behind the mass media’s smoke screen) who call for the unity of all popular forces in order to take the power from the hands of the few and give it back to the people.
Given the experience with Communism that ruled with the slogan “the power of many over the few” and with Capitalism that rules with the philosophy of “divide and conquer”, and considering the lamentable failure of both of them (given that each system sooner or later ended with the same situation: the power is put into the hands of few who are ruling over the many) we can conclude that one has to be careful in joining any call for either unity of people or for following our own divided interest. In fact we have to be careful in following any call today when it is not coming from our Heart.
We must understand where the failure in these two systems occurred in order to become able to transform something for real.
The difficult part in this analysis appears from its beginning through the fact that, paradoxically, these two systems (communism and capitalism), only apparently cover both possible ways in which humans can interact: unity and separation.
An Elitist Occult Minority Holds the Power Over the Majority
People have either united, forming a people’s majority (as in communism), or people have followed each of their own goals, being governed by the rules of the state of law (as in capitalism), and the result seems to be, sooner or later, the same for all: an elitist occult minority holding powers over the majority of people who don’t even have a clue about what is being done to them.
If, through the unity of the exploited ones or through their lawful separation (on the basis of some laws), the result tends to still be the same, we have all the rights to ask ourselves what the solution would be? Similarly, this constant returning to the phase of confiscating the power in one way or another by occult groups shows us that the problem of the inhuman exploitation and of elitism cannot be sought in the organizing system of the majority, but rather in the very nature of this majority which seems to always generate the same situations in the absence of adequate education.
Let’s take these two examples and see if there is any common element behind them, which might actually be the cause of the failure even though the two systems seem to perfectly complete each other (in other words, together they cover the entire range of possibilities and therefore the failure cannot come from somewhere else externally). We have seen that if people unite in order to form a certain popular force they put together various thoughts and aspirations which later on become a kind of gigantic reservoir which accumulates all their experiences. We encounter this in what is generically called the collective subconscious.
Communism works in such a way that this collective subconscious is greatly amplified and the people are very directly and dynamically connected to it, thus they are very powerfully influenced by its content.
On the other side, the capitalist system works so that people are dominated by the idea that they are special and different, and their spirit of competition is stimulated to the point in which there is almost no cohesive power left between the individuals. This is what makes the individuals prone to the forces of the state, which are the only forces that cannot be confronted with any successful opposition.
In order to understand how it is possible that these two systems (which are so clearly different) can still lead to the apparition of the same occult power and, moreover, to its support both through the development of the system and through its demise (as happened with the communist system, through its very demise fed the same occult power which fed itself in the first stages after the previous demise from the ‘carcass’ of the exterminated system). I think that we must study some fundamental mechanisms of the human being; mechanisms which make him react in this way both individually and within the group.
The Initiate and The Egoist: The Man and His Shadow
A very important element which we must take into consideration here is the fact there are certain principles to be found in the depths of human nature which preordain human beings, so that sooner or later they behave and are organized in the same way within similar conditions.
Here I refer for instance to the concept of a ‘chosen being’ or of ‘the elite’. This concept has always been a shadow – a reflection in the inferior planes – of the spiritual concept of initiate and that of esoteric (occult) circle. People who do not have the level of consciousness – or no longer have – to perceive this concept of initiate together with all its consequences, search unconsciously to find themselves a special status or to differentiate themselves from the others because this is what they understand from the notion of initiate: a special person who keeps a distance from the others. This is translated from the perspective of the ego through the notion of ‘elite’ and ‘elitism’. What has been the sign of a superior level of consciousness – the initiate – now becomes the mark of the inferior level of consciousness – the egoist or the elitist. Thus we can see how the elitist is a caricature-like copy (from the perspective of the ego) of the initiate.
If the initiate is a being who is by the nature of his knowledge above the others who are in the earlier stages of the adventure of evolution, the egoist or the elitist is the one who, by the nature of his limitations, considers himself special, exceptional or to be ‘the chosen one’. The feeling of being special becomes central in the case of the egoist while in the case of the initiate the interest for knowledge and evolutionary transformation is the central element of his interest. The initiate is interested in perfecting himself and through this – even if he does not at all aim for this – he attains a special status related to the others who are not yet aware at this level or who have not yet transformed themselves to this degree.
The special status of the initiate results from the very nature of the things while the special status of the elitist, or the egoist, results from the constant effort to gain and maintain this status. The egoist or the elitist is interested in having a special status even if it is not deserved. He is usually a mediocre man who does not deserve this status in reality.
That is exactly why the egoist starts to make an effort to create an image of the chosen being for himself, of belonging to the elite, and he works to maintain this image through the mystification of the truth or even through the effort of personal elevation. For this he joins forces with others who have the same mentality, creating occult groups, self-named as chose ones or the elite.
Groups of initiates preserve their anonymity and discretion due to the objective necessity which appears through the very big difference between their level of consciousness and manifestation and those who are still in ignorance. Their work is done within themselves and their discretion is maintained in a natural and effortless way. If this difference in the level of consciousness did not exist, the group of initiates would not need to keep anything secret. On the other hand, elitists, or egoists, usually have no objective reason which would create the necessity for keeping certain secrets, except for the need to appear different to how they are, for playing an image enhancing game based mainly on the skilful manipulation of secrets and, thus, on holding onto power in a formal and illegitimate way.
They cultivate a certain self-image by placing, apparently, the notions of charity and mutual help, humanism and evolution at the centre of their attention, but through attentive analysis we can see that these are obviously very smartly conceived image enhancing games (and not at all sustained by their concrete actions) in order to maintain the idea of a moral and even spiritual elite and to justify the actions performed from this position.
From this perspective the elite is substituted within the natural order, a counterfeit of what naturally appears within a community through the evolution of some individuals who become initiates. The elite are an aberration of nature trying to hide exactly by imitating nature. The leading elite justify their existence through the fact that somebody has to lead and has to assume this, and they do so because they are the ‘chosen ones’. However, over time it tends to become clear that the value of the elite is at the same level as those human beings whom they lead and then the tyranny of the mediocre over mediocrity is installed, or … “the exploitation of man by man” :)
Freemasons and Elite Groups Manipulate from Behind the Scenes
Due to the need for imitating nature in order to survive and to succeed, the elitists are hiding under the form of an occult initiating group; they pretend to be initiated and they even perform, for the purpose of parading, rituals which aim to convince the neophyte that everything is authentic and that they have reached within the centre of the initiated ones because they deserve it and because they have been chosen.
This is the thought and action pattern of the freemasons (masonry) and other occult groups of the worldwide elite who are leading the freemasons (masonry). This is the place from which they view their backstage manipulation of power and control over the states of the world.
Indeed, it is true that there are human beings who should lead the others but this should result from a process of natural evolution and not at all as a result of some formal and arbitrary elections organized by the elite who play their own games of power.
Now do not leap out of your chair in order to point out the “political incorrectness” of the above statement, because here I do not refer to democratic elections, but to power manoeuvres which often ridicule and debase the democratic elections. All the manoeuvres peformed by the circles of the elite in order to maintain the power of the elite are flagrant violations of the natural order and even of the idea of democracy in its true sense.

But the question which blocks the clear thinking of many (who sincerely try to unveil how things happen at this level) is the following:
“How is it possible that the elite manifests at almost all the levels and in almost all the areas of human life without anything at all being disclosed about its existence? How is this conspiratorial phenomenon happening without us – the majority of people – knowing anything?”
The answer to this question does not appear in the field of understanding of contemporary people and this is exactly why very many have the tendency to eliminate from the very beginning any possibility that this worldwide elite exists and has the capacity to rapidly multiply both in number and especially in power and arrogance.
The answer to this question, in my opinion, is the following: you do not have to create a worldwide elite, you only have to create a small nucleus which governs itself from the principle of the elite. This will multiply itself like a virus which will slowly contaminate all the human structures for the simple reason that human nature is vulnerable to these types of “elitist” ideas.
By means of this, people will organize themselves into elite and occult groups, without the necessity for too much direct interference.
In order to become an initiate you must make intensive effort to win over your inferior temptations, you must transform yourself in an authentic way and without deceiving yourself.
However, to become part of the elite you must consider yourself special and to lie to yourself as well as possible. It is obvious that for many, who are weak characters, the second option is the real one.
As a supplementary argument I would like to show you here what is said in a certain protocol of the freemasonic masters, which appeared in the year 1897 at Basle and which, since then, can clearly be distinguished in the majority of revolutionary social and popular actions. I must admit that before reading these protocols I myself had the tendency to believe what was said about these protocols – that they are some fabrications from the Tsarist secret services or some inventions against the Jews. However, after reading these protocols, I had no doubt about their authenticity and this was for the simple reason that their age correlated with the bewildering degree of accomplishment of the outlined directives. If somebody comes with the text of a prophecy and then it is said that the respective prophecy is false, but all that is prophesized in that writing turns out to be true … then is clear that the prophecy is true, irrespective of its author.
Let’s see now what these puppeteers from the shadows say about the freemasons and about the way in which they have to be manipulated (refering here obviously to those who are on the inferior levels). As it can be noticed, the elitist attitude comes through these lines together with its specfic miasma:
We shall multiply Masonic Lodges as a means of gathering under our eye all those goyim who (promise to become prominent in public activity), particularly all agents of international police, for these are useful both to enforce and to screen our activity. We puff up their foolish egotism, their need for any little success, in order to keep them in line, for these tigers in appearance have the souls of sheep . . . They are incapable of the analysis and observation required for foresight, hence the inevitable subjection to ours of the brute mind of the goyim.
In the following here is a selection from what this protocol says showing the nature of the groups of the elite. I chose to place here the entire text and to only underline the sequences important for the present discussion:
“Everyone of them must know that there can never be equality as a result of the specific types of work to which the humans are subjected, that they cannot be all without any exception responsible in front of the law; that, for instance, the responsibility is not the same for the one who only stains his own honour.
The real knowledge of the social order, in the mysteries of which we do not involve the christians, would show that the place and the work of each should be different so that it doesn’t become a source of troubles as a consequence of adequacy between education and work.
By learning this knowledge (and since the primary schools) the peoples will voluntarily bend to the social orders and powers established by them within the State. And on the contrary, in the present state of the knowledge, as we have created it, the people, blindly trusting the printed word hopes, as a consequence of the untruths which it will believe and with which we maintain its stupidity, a hatred against all the positions which he believes to be above him, because he doesn’t understand the importance of each social position.
This hatred will even grow following the economical crisis, which will end through the stopping of the stock exchange operations and the course of the industry.
When we’ll give birth (with the help of the hidden means at our disposal, through the gold which is entirely in our hands) to a general economical crisis, then we’ll throw out on the streets entire lots of workers in the same day, in all the countries of Europe.
These discontent masses will thirstily shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they begrudge ever since their childhood and whose goods they can rob at that moment. But they will not touch ours, because we’ll know in advance the moment of the attack and we’ll take all the measures to take shelter.
We said that the progress will subject all the Christians to the reign of the ratio. This way our despotism will be manifested; it will know how to calm down the troubles through sharp and exemplary measures; it will be able to chase away liberalism from all the institutions.
When the people will see that, in the name of the freedom, they were given so many concessions and advantages, each one will stupidly imagine that he is the master and is greedily jumping to the power but, sure enough, he bumps against lots of obstacles. Then he doesn’t consider to return to the point where he came from, but starts looking for a new leader and, thus, without being aware of it, he is laying down to our feet all the powers. Remember the French Revolution, which we have given the name “The Great”; the mysteries of its preparations are well known to us since it was entirely our work. Since then we bring the people from one disappointment to another, with the goal that they give up even the good things, for the benefit of the future despot-King, whom we prepare in the future for the world.
Today we are almighty as international power, since, if we are attacked in one State, we are defended in the other states. The endless cowardice of the christian peoples who are dragging in front of the power, showing no mercy towards small weaknesses and mistakes, but completely merciful towards the big crimes, who don’t want to acknowledge the contradiction with the idea of freedom, who are patient to the sacrifice in front of the brutal power of a daring despot – this is what fully enables our self-sufficiency. These Christian people suffer and endure from their prime-ministers obvious injustices for which twenty kings could have been beheaded.
How can we explain such a phenomenon which shows an inconsequence of such an extent of the people’s masses in front of the things which seem to be of the same nature? This phenomenon is explained by the fact that these dictators – prime ministers – make do that, through their agents, the people is told that, if they cause great drawbacks to the States, all these are only performed for the final goal to later ensure the happiness of all the peoples, their international union, solidarity, equal rights for all. For sure, they are never told that this union should only be done under our guidance and our domination.
Hence, this is how the people punish the righful ones and forgive those who are very guilty, trusting more and more that he, and only him is meant to do all that he likes. In such circumstances, in the end, people are destroying any peaceful order and bring forth to injustice and disorder with every step.
The word FREEDOM is quickly pushing to fight the human societies against any power, be it even the power of God and of nature. This is why after our raising to power this word must be eradicated from the human vocabulary as being the principle of brutality, which changes the masses into wild beasts. It is true that these beasts always fall asleep after they have drunk blood and that in this moment it is easy to enchain them. But if they are not given blood, then they do not sleep, but fight.”
- Hence this is why I consider that, through this action, from the movie “Invisible Empire” (but not only there) of urging the people to go out and unite in the name of the fight for overthrowing those who behold the power in an abusive way (the elitists), these people become the unconscious (or conscious in some particular cases) agents of this occult power. They do nothing else than to open the free way for those who will cynically overtake the power right from those from those who have collected it with so much effort, once the waters have calmed down. -
But everytime the masses of the people gather in the name of an ideal, this ideal is in opposition with something which has already existed, they will sooner or later become vulnerable to the infiltration and, in the final instance, manipulated. The greater the mass of people, the easier an elite can manipulate it through these games which exceed the capacity of understanding of the great masses of people. The elites will dominate with great ease a boiling public which has its primary instincts awakened (the thirst for blood) than a majority of educated people who are aware of themselves. In the second situation, these human beings would smile at the stupid attempts of the elite to counterfeit their common sense and vigilance in by no means would let themselves dragged into the uproar of events which they cannot control.
An exterior revolution will always end by serving the interests of the elite which in fact is feeded by revolutions. After each such exterior revolutions the power of the occult elites have increased instead of decreasing and this happened because they were able to direct this blind force of the revolution towards its goals.
Therefore what is the answer?
The revolution must begin from within and only when there it has succeeded, can it move towards outside. Only in this situation the leading people will not be quarrelling with each other, they will have the capacity to work together for real as the same heart and in the end to manage to revolutionize the world as they have revolutionized themselves.
Of course, such a solution is not so simple as the other one and in addition is not at all pleasant for our ego. An exterior revolution is interesting for the ego and in addition it skilfully masks our incapacity to transform ourselves because now we are working on an exterior revolution “towards the benefit of the others”. And there is no more dangerous person to itself and to the others than the one who (falsely) believes that he is doing all in the name of helping the others.
Consequently, people like Alex Jones call to fight in an exterior revolution but who will lead the revolutionary army in the conditions in which Alex Jones himself needs some inner revolution (even just an alimentary one)?? It is obvious – watching the documentaries he is creating – that his agressiveness, many times uncontrolled makes him become blind to certain sensible arguments, often allowing himself the temptation of truncating the truth in order to obtain a certain effect in the public a method which later he stigmatizes in those who behold the power. Such behaviour denotes that the exterior revolution has already started to show its dangerous fangs and to foreshadow its confiscation by the forces who behold the power also in the present moment.
Otherwise it is not at all by coincidence the fact that the great dictatorships of the 20th century were installed through revolutions or ample social movements which have installed them at the head of the state. This shows that in fact the exterior revolution is nothing but a sign of our incapacity to follow our spiritual destiny as humans and then we choose to manifest this transforming impulse in actions oriented exclusively towards outside. The price which we pay is the set up of a dictatorship which will use the created chaos and will steal the revolution of the naive and exteriorized ones.
Therefore I consider that the most powerful revolution is the revolution of education and spiritual evolution because this can neither be checked, nor controlled too easily and its results are much stronger since it destroys the possibility for the power to control it any more from within the beings who are free, this way. That is exactly why – based on the principle that “the first piece of the domino is the most defended one” – all the authentic spiritual schools are defended with great rigour and systematically attacked and discredited so that, this way, the spiritual education – which very easily brings the inner transformation of the people – cannot be transmitted. This way there will be promoted the non-values and the elites instead of the authentic initiates (see in the following also the article about NEW AGE).
If we relate to the events in December 1989 from Romania (events which are named by the leaders of the Romanian elites in a cynical way, Revolution!) we’ll easily notice this tragic situation: innocent people were sacrificed by the elitist groups in order to legitimate their lawlessnesses and to validate their statute of elite “emanated” from the fights of the streets. But beyond these fights there remained the cynical planning of some people who have activated “the human livestock” in actions of almost ritualic sacrifice aiming to install a new elite to power in Romania. In the same way are ongoing the things in the majority of the countries in the world nowadays.
In order to illustrate this with another meaningful situation I will synthesize a series of events in Denmark: the country’s prime minister came in the Parliament and shamelessly lied, stating that there are pieces of certain information regarding the mass destruction weapons in Iraq. He has convinced thus a hesitating Danish Parliament to send troops in Iraq. After a while, a news reporter has brought the proof – with photos of official documents beheld by the Danish prime minister at the moment of taking the decision to send Danish troops in Iraq and has showed that in the respective documents there was clearly stated that there is no information about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq!
There appears a small quarrel in the Danish press, but very well controlled by the Jewish cartel which controls the major press in the kingdom. The Danish prime minister hands out to the reporter a high distinction for professionalism in journalism and in one year he is chosen again as prime minister through the people’s poll! After one more year Anders Fogh Rasmussen (since he is the infamous character) is chosen for the much more important function of general secretary of NATO. It is obvious that, after lying so well in the name of the allies … he also deserves a piece of the pie which he has been defeating.
His lie and corruption proved with documents have qualified him by default for the supreme function in the alliance. Hence, this is how the elite works in this case. There is no point for me to insist on the fact that Anders Fogh is a member in a central masonic lodge in Copenhagen. “something is rotten in Denmark” … one could say.
What would be the solution to such a situation??? To go out on the street? Well, with such a population which has already accepted so easily these things it would be a child’s game to easily confiscate the power and to update it for the new demands.
And, since I’ve mentioned here more times about masonery and about the protocols of the “wise” I will continue with a series of pieces of information and comments on the worldwide masonery and its elitist (and egocentric) occult structures. Similarly I think it is interesting for all of us to debate on the text of the protocols in the light of the events from the last 113 years
Success and let God keep us all within His Love.

Women should become more aware of their role now more than ever, especially on this universal day when we celebrate the Eternal Feminine. Their role is manifested in an ineffable way within man’s creative dynamism. Those women especially, who have awakened the state of SHAKTI should make enthusiastic, sustained and adequate efforts in order to awaken in as many women as possible (and quickly) the divine nature, the Sacred Feminine which lies within them, just like the Sleeping Beauty.
More and more women should become fully aware that they have, in a potential state, in their inner universe (the microcosm of their being) all the energies, all the aspects they need to create a mysterious, profound and overwhelming connection with MAHASHAKTI. For this they need to realize and to be totally convinced that “ WHAT EXISTS IN THEIR INNER UNIVERSE, EXISTS ALSO EVERYWHERE IN THE ENTIRE MACROCOSM, AND WHAT IS NOT PRESENT IN THEIR INNER UNIVERSE, DOES NOT EXIST ANYWHERE IN THE ENTIRE MACROCOSM”.
Moreover, all women should be aware that in reality their being and body are constitutive parts of MAHASHAKTI’S immense being and body. Kundalini Shakti which is always present (in a latent or active state) inside every woman’s body, stays as the mysterious messenger of MAHASHAKTI. From the moment that many women will transcend the veil of the millenary hypnosis, which forces them to indulge in a state of lethargic obedience and convinces them of their pseudo mental inferiority, they will be able to create, in a state of creative collaboration with men, a richer and better world through the feminine values.
At the level of the entire macrocosm MAHASHAKTI manifests and states the greatness of the Creative Feminine Principle of the woman. Even when she is still not aware, the woman is and remains a privileged messenger of MAHASHAKTI. Every woman who is totally awakened is at the same time a mysterious personification of Mother Nature. A woman should never forget that through her, the Feminine Nature is the one that initiates the man and she should be aware of the fact that the man is not the one who teaches Nature. Consequently there is a stringent necessity that all women who are intuitively aware of these secret aspects, should wake up and then act in order to discover in a profound and ample way possible their noble origin. As many women as possible should make adequate efforts and be full of aspiration to manifest in an exemplary way the power of MAHASHAKTI. Acting in this way, those rare women who will awaken, totally and profoundly in their inner universe the state of Shakti, will be able to awaken at the same time, the fundamental divine knowledge offered to them through MAHASHAKTI.
An important announcement regarding a Divine Gift which will be offered to those Women who are ready to discover the Overwhelming and Mysterious Reality of Mahashakti
We announce those of you who wish to have access to a particular secret initiation which you deserve (only those of you who are ready for it), that you will be able to benefit very soon (with no costs), within an unite group, from specific millenary revelations which are contained in a very old oriental text called Maha Shakti Darshana Tantra. In this way only those of you who will deserve, will be able to know (in order to practice them) specific fundamental mysteries which belong to MAHASHAKTI. They will help you open entirely your being and soul so that you can discover HER in an ineffable and grand way everywhere around you, She is the one who in Christianity is the Holy Spirit and – at the same time for those initiated – the Great Mother (MAHASHAKTI) whose super gigantic Maha Yoni gave birth to the Macrocosm (which contains three worlds: physical, astral and causal). Both the woman’s and the man’s inner universe have Mahashakti present through the mysterious feminine energy - Kundalini Shakti. When a woman manages to awaken as much as possible this mysterious energy – kundalini, she can come in contact with Maha Shakti. When we experience intense, profound and overwhelming states of cosmic orgasm, we also feel the mysterious and secret presence of Maha Shakti. Each state of prolonged and profound orgasm which women are capable of experiencing spontaneously, reveals in an intuitive, ecstatic way the all-inclusive presence of Maha Shakti and it makes us experience the state of divine bliss (Ananda). In this way, through the state of divine bliss (Ananda), which is revealed to us during specific states of divine orgasm, it becomes possible for us to discover simultaneously the pure existence of God the Father (Sat) and His pure divine consciousness (Cit). It is obvious that all these are possible only for those human beings who make love based on mutual love and apply in the game of love-making, full sexual continence, transfiguration and consecration of the fruits to God the Father. In this way it becomes possible for us to live and discover every time, during our ecstatic amorous games, God’s fundamental reality which is known to the wise ones as SAT-CIT-ANANDA.
The admission to this initiation will be based on a selection which is going to be announced shortly.
We know that in the Christian tradition the presence of Maha Shakti is the enigmatic reality of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is in fact, in eternity, the eternal feminine power, invisible and mysterious of the Perfect Eternal Feminine. It also represents in the Christian tradition an essential and secret symbol. The Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is in Its essence, the manifestation of an intelligent, extraordinary and mysterious feminine force, which embraces always the whole of God’s creation. Maha Shakti or the Holy Spirit is both the invisible and the extraordinary powerful feminine force of the wind, the mystery of feminine vitality, the external feminine force which supports and transforms everything within God’s creation.
When we contemplate God’s creation and its manifestation, we can say that beyond appearances, they are all expressions of the divine feminine energy or, in other words all these are facets of the PERFECT ETERNAL FEMININE. The Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti makes possible in a secret way the relationships between human beings (men and women) and God. Maha Shakti is the embracing Spirit of God. Maha Shakti or the Holy Spirit suggests to us a secret distinction between natural and supernatural. The Holy Spirit of God or Maha Shakti has been conceived with a terrible and all-inclusive supernatural feminine power (which is under the authority of God the Father) and which exercises its force only towards beneficial and divine actions.
Many initiated people and wise ones based their claimed authority upon special overwhelming manifestations of the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti which has been revealing itself within the universe of human beings (men and women) through some ecstatic and overwhelming states. In this distinction one can easily notice the sublime and uplifting role which divinely inspired music has in the stimulation of ecstasy and inspiration, especially in the women’s case. The most striking is the confession of the Biblical prophets who based their divine inspiration on Maha Shakti’s presence. The Holy Spirit or Mahashakti is often indentified in manifestation with divine ecstatic states (in Israel, but also in other religions of the East). The secret role of the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti has been often reaffirmed as being a source of inspiration for prophecies.
The idea that God is present in the universe of our being through the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is expressed in Psalms. Considering this fundamental idea that the Holy spirit or Maha Shakti is the mysterious spirit of God, who is always without exception holy and good, one can say that the Holy Spirit or Mahashakti has an intermediate role. This is why the prophets named it Spirit or Maha Shakti – “The Holy Spirit of God”. Sometimes they called it “The Good Spirit of God” and in fact this Holy Spirit is nothing else but Mahashakti, the perfect eternal feminine and enigmatic, through whom God’s creation has been manifested
Times New RomanThe gifts of the Holy Spirit or Mahashakti mark the beginning of a divine life for both men and women. In the Acts of the Apostles, the overwhelming out pouring of the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti during Rusalii was the privileged moment when Jesus’ disciples felt when their totally divine faith began. The promise of the Gospels for the first seekers of God is concentrated on the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti and in other situations, receiving the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is considered to be a crucial fact which indicates the acceptance of all aspirants (who are full of excitement),both men and women, by God.
In disciple Paul’s writings, the Holy Spirit’s gift or Maha Shakti, is considered to be the beginning of divine experience. In other words, a human being (man or woman) can belong to God, only if Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti manifests totally within her/him. The human being can only be united with God through the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti; they cannot benefit from the communion with God without being connected to the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti.
In disciple John’s writings, the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is the enigmatic feminine power who gives birth again, because Holy spirit is the mysterious life giver, just like a river which flows from God and gives a new and rich spiritual life to men and women who come and believe in Him. According to disciple John, the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is the feminine breath of life of God’s creation. He considers that the presence of the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti is life’s indescribable proof. The first Christians believed that the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti was a divine feminine power which was manifested through its multiple and profound effects upon any woman and man’s life who received the Holy Spirit. The impact of Maha Shakti or Holy Spirit has never created doubts regarding the extraordinary, profound and significant transformation which happened shortly after that, within human beings (women or men) through divine action.
It is interesting that disciple Paul asks Christians to remember always the first time, the moment of the beginning when they felt the overwhelming and indescribable manifestation of Maha Shakti or the Holy Spirit. For some, the overwhelming manifestation of Maha Shakti or the Holy Spirit has been and remained an overwhelming experience of God’s love; for others it was an experience of the ineffable divine enlightenment or divine liberation. The Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti has always made possible many spiritual and moral transformations. The Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti pours in every woman, especially, but in men also, various spiritual gifts. This is why this overwhelming outpouring of the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti can be emphasized as a fundamental feature of any Christian. It is often possible that the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti which is manifested, to be unseen but its presence felt and easily detected. The human being within whom it is fully manifested the Holy Spirit or Maha Shakti, does not depend on this world anymore and its standards in order to find an aim or a profound, overwhelming and divine satisfaction.
A meditation on the mysterious presence of Maha Shakti in maifestation (the eternal feminine, embracing and omnipresent)
Only those who are initiated and also women who reached a certain level of wisdom through the awakening in their inner universe of the state of Shakti, have the intuition, feel and are always aware of the fact that Maha Shakti (the perfect eternal feminine) is present in its hypostasis of Great Mother and when so many of us talk about Mother Nature we actually refer to the mysterious presence of Maha Shakti (the perfect eternal feminine). Through the extraordinary power which God the Father offers to Her, Maha Shakti is, in a significant way, almighty and she exists in eternity, as the feminine counterpart of God the Father.
When we look at the manifestation on this planet - through Maha Shakti’s eyes we can ask ourselves: what is that we call wisdom of this world and also of science, which is considered to be madness in comparison to perfect, embracing and eternal wisdom of God? What are all the inventions of human beings, all the cities with skyscrapers which lie (not by chance) as close to the desert? What are all the terrible weapons which these pervert people use to either ‘protect’ their so-called conquests or to perpetuate their empires full of perversity and rottenness (a significant example is USA)?
We have to be aware of the fact that all these will only turn into ashes in the future when they will be dust and powder and brought to their initial state by the great, mysterious feminine forces of nature which, sooner or later, will make everything return to their initial shape and, in this way, it will make them re-enter their primitive composition. That is when many cities which are dominated by skyscrapers will be completely cleared of those human beings who live there, or when those cannons and guns which are placed in the so-called strategic zones, will be abandoned and, after a while, grass and rust will invade the concrete, pavement will become powder and rust will inevitably eat what before was considered to be very hard steel.
It is worth looking back at the vast loneliness which is now ruined, but used to be populated by some very powerful cities at that point. Lets pay attention to the fact that – and it is not at all a coincidence, but a mysterious necessity- there are only ruins left today and the more the mysterious and omnipresent energy of time embraces and crushes them, the more they will be worn by the energy of time and in the end they will turn into ashes, they will merge with the earth, which will become virgin, and thus, a cyclical eternal return will appear soon.
It is good when we find ourselves in a place covered by the desolate ruins of an old city, to ponder, looking through Maha Shakti’s eyes (perfect eternal feminine). What was the purpose and did it matter that so many people once lived and had various superficial, ephemeral, full of illusion experiences in these places? What happened with the great majority of women and men who lived here during those times? When each one of those human beings passed away in order to leave this planet forever, their life in this physical world suddenly stopped and, immediately after, their breath froze. After that they disappeared forever from this world and now they are not at all on this planet in the way they used to be. Stop and pay attention because all that existed once will be again and again and the law of the eternal return of times will ineluctably and inexorably work in the same way it did for the desolate ruins we contemplate today, in some places on this planet.
In those times which are in the future now, the sons of the earth who will deserve to be here, will take hold of this planet and then the sublime, divine time of the past will come back, just like Apocalypse’s text shows. Beware that all these are inevitable and all prophecies inspired by God which exist in the Apocalypse, but also in other texts, predict that, eventually all these will reappear inevitably, just like we tried to explain in a certain way (addressing them to your intuition). When we face chaos and confusion in which this materialistic world drowns, Maha Shakti’s mysterious wisdom inspires us in the moment we are opened enough, makes us experience the perfect eternal feminine in a profound, grand and overwhelming way in our being, like an enigmatic source, always alive and regenerating.
Aphorisms and Thoughts
• The human being who lives in a larval state ignores his/her own defects and cannot discover, look and admire the exceptional qualities of anyone else. This kind of human being is not only ignoring his/her own defects, but also those wonderful features of someone else. She/he cannot get rid of her/his own defects because she is not capable of recognizing them. Also, she is not able to observe or reach the level of the others’ qualities because she/he is initially not capable to discover and analyze them.
• How is it possible that beauty and wonders, which are latent in other people and which we admire, can be transmitted through the eyes full of delight of the admirer in his/her being, in order to enrich him/her being in this way with new treasures of beauty which he himself discovered? The human being who reached a high level of wisdom knows already that only God the Father is always perfectly wise and in the same time knows that He is the only one who knows all forever. Understanding this aspect as it should be, even the greatest wise man continues to learn everyday so that he increases the treasure of his wisdom. This is why his type of wise man has always at his disposal two mirrors. In the first one he will see with a lot of lucidity and detachment even the smallest defect or possible flaws which are still persisting, in the smallest quantity, in his being. He strives to fix them as fast as possible. By acting in this way, the wise one preserves unaltered his modesty and humility. In the second mirror which he has he will contemplate with great delight and admiration not only the qualities, but also the virtues, together with all that is extraordinary in all human beings he comes in contact. Then the wise one does anything in his power, based on the example he is given, in order to integrate and awaken as soon as possible in his being everything that is good, beautiful and extraordinary. In this way he transforms fast through relentlessly assimilation and awakens through empathy and identification everything that is beautiful, good and extraordinary in the nature of all human beings he encounters. In this way the wise one makes secure and fast steps towards fulfillment. He continues to learn even when those obtuse and stuff in their sufficiency think that there is nothing else to learn and assimilate in their inner world.
A special comment:
In the case of those human beings who had the chance to benefit from the secret teachings of SHIVA which are contained in the secret tantric treatise GUPTA KAMA BHAIRAVA TANTRA, they can understand when it comes to this aphorism, how it is possible to assimilate and easily awaken the qualities, virtues and exceptional features of other human beings. By having an intimate connection with these human beings one can enjoy with happiness and frenzy, in a transfigured way the golden elixir (MEHASAMRITA) after the amorous fusion. In this way it becomes very easy to awaken and galvanize in our inner universe the qualities, virtues and all that is wonderful or extraordinary in the adored human being. This is how it becomes possible for those initiated to have always at their disposal a secret and privileged technique which helps them assimilate and awaken in their inner universe all the qualities and virtues of the beloved.
• Human beings who love intensely, profoundly and without limits look at the faces and bodies of those they love in a transfigured way and full of admiration. When they look at other human beings in this state, they are capable to discover in both, the features of the faces and the characteristics of the bodies, the qualities and extraordinary potential, or the latent virtues present in their entire being. They identify themselves with these qualities and extraordinary features when they empathize with the loved ones and in this way it becomes possible for them to transfer in their inner universe the valuable seeds of those qualities and exceptional features. Thus, looking with love, transfiguration and admiration at the faces and bodies of the loved ones (of the opposite sex), this creative and fruitful contemplation will awaken in the inner universe these qualities and exceptional talents, which sometimes can be in a latent state. If we understand these secret aspects presented here, we can realize that all these transformations become possible when we use the divine energy of love. As soon as we feel a real state of admiration and manage to feel this love for a human being with some exceptional qualities and talents, it becomes easy to transfer in our own inner universe, through duplication, or in other words through a sui generis graft, everything that the respective human being manifests and sets off in our being a profound state of sympathy, admiration, provoking thus love and making it increase in order to experience a state of adoration.
• A critical mean look of a human being who judges in a superficial/mean way all the time discovers immediately even the tiniest defect which exists in the human beings he sees. In the case when these human beings do not really have defects, this kind of critical, superficial and mean vision will soon project, through the game of uncontrolled imagination (on those human beings), all the defects and vices which already belong to that being. After that, this type of human being reaches a level where she/he strongly believes that the other person she/he has in front of her/his eyes, really has these defects which were projected in a mean and non-transfigured way onto her/him. We can easily notice that in these situations, this type of human being slides into a sui generis vicious circle from which she cannot easily escape. We should not be surprised by the fact that where the critical opinion discovers very fast the tiniest defect, the one full of admiration, full of love and transfiguration and delight sees none.
Meditating on these aspects which are present in some ignorant human beings and unconscious, we can realize what are the disadvantages of a critical, mean, superficial and accusatory judgment.
- (Aphorisms and thoughts)
by yoga professor Gregorian Bivolaru
1. To be free implies, among other things, the inner certainty that every human being is responsible both before the entire humanity and before GOD.
2. The wise man always judges himself as being responsible for all he does.
3. When we look from a certain perspective and see what is happening on this planet (Earth), we discover that, in reality, each of us is, in a certain measure, responsible for all the others.
4. Because of the holographic structuring of the Manifestation (WHICH MAKES THE PART BE SIMUTANEOUSLY PRESENT IN THE WHOLE AND THE WHOLE BE SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESENT IN THE PART), both the wise men and the great initiates consider that every human being is, in a certain measure, responsible for all the others.
5. Given that always, each of us does only what he/she wants to, as we are completely free, precisely because of that we are and we remain every time responsible for what we have become.
6. No human being may feel responsible and desperate at the same time.
7. Even when it is no longer capable to realize this, the demonic human being is and remains an absurdity responsible of the state in which it indulges itself.
8. Most of the times, when you try, by all means, to find a guilty person, look first of all into a mirror and not into a telescope.
9. Each of us experiences in the present what he/she has already chosen in the past and, beyond appearances, our future will depend extremely much on the choices we make in the present.
10. One of the most significant years of our life is the year when we realize that most part of the problems we confronted or we confront with were once caused by ourselves. Only then we will stop blaming our parents, accusing our friends, we will give up blaming what surround us and, at the same time, we will discover that we can be capable to control and even transform (in better) our destiny.
11. When we finally become capable to understand that, in reality, we are the artisans of our own unhappiness, we may say that we are ready to take an important step on the path of happiness.
12. Even when we do not realize this, almost everything in out life is in close connection with the good or bad choices we made.
13. If most of the times it seems to you that you are not responsible for the mind you have, at least become aware, as soon as possible, that you are totally responsible for the mind you are creating to yourselves. This way, you create the premises for a profound transformation in your being.
14. In the case in which you will manifest the necessary lucidity, attention and detachment, next time when you are either very furious or very upset, try to annihilate immediately that poisonous emotion, saying instantly to yourselves: “NOW, IN THIS UNIQUE MOMENT, I AND ONLY I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DESTRUCTIVE PROCESSES OF OCCULT RESONANCE WHICH I UNLEASH IN MY INNER UNIVERSE.”
15. The wise ones can show us the right path we have to follow and more than that, some of them can even impel us, in a paranormal way, to walk on it, but still, it is obvious that this path must then be walked by ourselves, with the help that comes to us from GOD.
16. If you aspirate with your entire being for your life to be and remain a magnificent history both for you and for the others, realize that, first of all, you are its author and that, more than this, each day you have the opportunity or the chance to write a new wonderful page, able to delight you.
17. It is important for us to realize as soon as possible that, before trying to conquer the world, it is much more important to start by conquering, revolutionizing and transforming ourselves.
18. If you are in the situation of being almost always used, decide firmly that, beginning with today, you become useful most of the times. In order to accomplish this, it is essential, above all, to aim at doing only GOD’s will.
19. We could never hope to achieve full success as long as we do not look attentively and lucidly into the mirror to discover which the real causes of our failures are.
20. We should never accuse the sea for our second shipwreck.
21. For the human being who is full of commons sense, benevolence and intelligence, the past is a springboard and not a hammock (the hammock is a suspended bed made of a piece of resistant cloth or of hammock netting and, most of the times, it is used in open air or in small rooms).
22. It s not possible to built or structure something really good and extraordinary, ceaselessly relying ourselves exclusively on the past. Even if we continue to do this mistake, we shall realize sooner or later that we have missed the extraordinary chance of the present.
23. It is always possible to discover and observe the greatness of a human being considering the greatness of the responsibilities it assumes.
24. Even when (for the moment) it does not realize this, every human being is responsible and, precisely because of that, it can reinvent its destiny, with the help of GOD.
25. The worthy human being does not wait for miracles in a state of total inertia or in a larval state. It strongly believes that miracles are possible and acts being full of
hope and optimism, so that, this way, GOD has mercy on it and makes possible the
miracles it needs.
26. The most appropriate place and time we always have at hand in order to come to accomplish what is good, divine and sublime is “HERE AND NOW”, with all that we have already succeeded in awakening in our inner universe.
27. The human being who is responsible, intelligent and full of common-sense, always finds original or even brilliant ways of solving problems, while the lethargic and irresponsible human being finds always only excuses.
28. Few realize that before a human being might really achieve his wonderful aspirations and to fulfill his sublime ideals, he has to be spiritually awakened first.
29. The weak ones who are in the same time unconscious, larval and irresponsible have problems. The strong ones, awaken from the spiritual point of view have creative solutions that are filling with amazement and admirations the inertial ones.
30. The intuitive, intelligent, responsible and full of common sense human being is
constantly analyzing himself with attention and lucidity in order to discover in his inner universe the possible causes of his mistakes; the reckless and irresponsible one uses to ask the others what are the causes of his errors.
31. When the choices and actions of a human being are profoundly beneficent and full of wisdom, we should assume, at our turn, what that human being is doing. Moreover, in this kind of situation, it is of our duty to let him free, and in the same time to aim to understand him, having a creative attitude of relating to his example.
In this kind of cases, it is even very good to aim to imitate him, at our turn, in order to assimilate, in this way, in our inner universe his example. This kind of wise attitude is what we might call ”the shared creative responsibility”.
32. The wise ones are always respecting ”the golden rule of the 3 R”: full of dignity Respect towards ourselves; full of common sense Respect towards the others; complete Responsibility of all the actions we are doing.
33. No human being with dignity and common sense can be or remain always frustrated in a world of perverted people.
34. Even when we are not realizing it (for the time being), we are completely responsible for our thoughts, intentions and deeds. Not even if they would take refuge on the Moon, neither if they would submerge somewhere on the bottom of the depths of the ocean, nor if they would hide in the deepest cave somewhere in the mountains, no matter where will he try to take refuge in this world, there is no realm where the human being might escape, even for one minute, of the inevitable consequences of his actions. In the same time, we should never forget that even in
the world beyond (the Astral Universe), it is impossible to escape from the consequences of our actions (that have not been burnt or annihilated).
35. The responsibility that we have involves, in the same time, not only the capacity to generate or to do something, but also the will to accept, sooner or later, all the results or consequences – good or bad – that are resulting from our actions, without ever assigning them to another person other than ourselves.
36. In some situations, due to our ignorance in which we are continuing to indulge, we feel paradoxically and abnormally guilty where, in reality, somebody else is responsible.
37. Responsibility is, together with self-control, common sense, love, intuition, intelligence compassion and authentic knowledge, one of the basic components of the beneficial and profoundly serene force that the human being is emanating powerfully and which is awakening in him wisdom and stability.
38. Without almost any exception, each one of us should always aim to do all that is good, offering every time to those who are ready to receive it, the goodness that already exists in our inner universe and can be manifested. This is one of our sacred responsibilities, that we should have in our sight in the case in which we are truly aspiring to become a human being.
39. The efficient instrument of every divine revolution is and remains the fully responsible Man, who is in the same time full of common sense, intelligence and love. This kind of man makes beneficial and full of wisdom choices.
40. Due to the fact that, beyond appearances, each one of us is responsible, to a certain degree, for everything that is happening (even when we do not realize it for the time being), we should allow to ”resound” (or, in other words, resonate in an occult way) in our inner universe all that we encounter each time which is good, divine, beautiful and wonderful (that in reality is known only by God and is never just happening).
41. An authentic and profound knowledge that is, in the same time, full of wisdom is always triggering in our being a certain state of responsibility, that will cause the decisions that we take to be on the same level.
42. If humanity, in its ensemble, will not discover as soon as possible a new and profoundly transforming way of living, which is based on godliness, wisdom, love, common sense, compassion, benevolence, altruism, goodness, humbleness and mutual help, it will drown more and more into the terrible state of decay that we are all observing in the world that we are living in.
43. We should all realize that, in reality, every choice and every intention that we are manifesting is in the same time influencing the whole humanity. Even when we are not (for the time being) realizing it, each one of us is, to a certain degree, responsible for everything that is happening on this planet, either it is about our daily existence, either it is about this world that we are all living in. Since we understand this, we should ask full of humbleness and faith for the help of GOD THE FATHER, so in this way, our thoughts, intentions and actions will influence in a good, profound and durable way, the whole humanity. Doing so very often, we might have a significant contribution, which could impulse the gradual transformation, in a good way, of the whole humanity in its ensemble.
44. We should realize that we are simply not mere biological beings, because in the beginning, GOD THE FATHER made us upon his image and alikeness, and when we are acting full of intelligence and common sense, it is possible to discover that, in reality, each one of us is a creative consciousness. That is why we should urgently realize that our responsibility is on the measure of this privilege.
45. When we are looking with lots of attention and lucidity upon the past, we are realizing that, in reality, the concept of responsibility is referring in a great measure to the potential consequences of our intentions and actions. Taking into consideration this aspect, we should prove common sense, intelligence and precaution, offering in the same time to the intuition the place that it deserves. It is then urgently necessary to do this, because there are many signs showing that our planet, the nature, the human space itself and even the biosphere are perishable. Knowing this, we should not lose from our sight the fact that, to a great degree, their fate is, at this very moment, in our hands.
By Martin Svensson and Celestine Andersen.
This article is based on a lecture which was kept by Martin and Celestine in the International Yoga Congress 2010, which took place on 13-17 of October in Bucharest, Romania. On that event there were kept dozens of lectures and workshops by yoga teachers from all over the world. Among the participating teachers there was made a friendly contest for the best lecture. This lecture by Marin and Celestine won the 3rd place of all the lectures.
We will share our personal experience as a couple, upon tantric lovemaking, sexual continence and polarity as a method for spiritual growth, methods to transform the couple relationship into a spiritual engine through polarity and sexual continence, notions on the differences between men and women, and the game of polarity from a spiritual point of view.
A preview on Tantra
According to the ancient spiritual traditions, Tantra is the science of the consciousness, essentially based on experiencing the most intense and powerful states provided by the senses, in a perfectly controlled manner, in order to use this powerful energy to expand the individual limited field of awareness into the Cosmic Universal consciousness.
Among all the experiences of a human being, the erotic union, full of love and transfiguration between a man and a woman is one of the deepest and strongest. The sexual dynamism is the most powerful physical experience and in the same time so easily accessible, and Tantra offers the method to transform it into a way to spiritual regeneration and ecstasy.
The sexual energy is one of the strongest generators for intensive states we have, and used in a wise and controlled way it can be the trigger for awakening divine levels of our being. Therefor Tantra points out the deep value of the couple relationship and sexual union, because the relationship between the man and the woman holds a tremendous spiritual potential.
Kularnava Tantra states: “Using boring and difficult techniques, nobody can achieve perfection. Perfection can be achieved easily through complete controlled and aware satisfaction of the desires.”
This very courageous approach made Tantra an easy subject of misunderstandings. Westerners misused Tantra for encouraging the so-called free sexuality, which is nothing but a sure path to decadence and sufferance if the sexual continence (in fact implying a very severe discipline in order to be attained) is not practiced!
In order to be able to use the tantric methods for spiritual transformation, one should adopt a new attitude regarding the creative – sexual energy. Spiritualizing and sacralizing the sexuality is a pillar for the tantric path. Without this attitude, all the techniques or procedures are nothing but sterile exercises. What provides the real transformation into a student of Tantra, is this transfiguration of his/her sexuality into a sacred cosmic act of union between the two polarities: masculine and feminine, for recreating the primordial perfect Androgyne.
This way, the sexual union becomes a form of meditative discipline having deep psycho-mental and spiritual effects.
How to use sexuality as a spiritual tool, lies into the mechanisms of the mind and the way these mechanisms can be controlled. Tantra reveals that an intensive state have the power to destroy the self-imposed limitations that we would normally impose in the beginning of our evolution. We all know the experience of the amazing state of freedom and clarity that comes after a very intensive state of pleasure or pain because of the overwhelming amount of emotions. When going lucidly through such intensive experience, our consciousness expands immensely. The tantric system found different methods to produce in a safe way, intensive states and use them systematically to expand the consciousness.
Also here we want to mention the emphasis Tantra puts on our approach on sexuality, that is encouraged to be full of courage without taboos. First of all we have to realise where we are and start from there, as a classical example Tantra gives us. A sense of complete honesty, openness and self-awareness is needed. Everything we fear, will limit and bound us and the way to freedom is to confront and overcome our limiting patterns. Our experience is, that on the base of the intimate love relationship, we became much stronger because we were reflecting each other, giving honest, but loving feedback and guidance. In this way, we became more aware and because of the mutual support, also able to grow and overcome our limitations. The beauty of being in a couple is that there is always one to reflect you and thus the potential for fast and efficient growth, when both have transformation as a goal, and the ability to give feedback with love to help each other and not to criticise. And because we are different, we became examples for each other in different ways. Martin is for example very open-minded and detached and Celestine playful and spontaneous. He taught her to detach from her emotions and become a witness to her life. She taught him to be more free and enjoy life. In this case we helped each other to become balanced, adopting some of the best qualities from each other.
The key to a permanent transformation on the spiritual path, is repetition. An overwhelming, intensive state which is not repeated doesn´t represent a true value for the spiritual practitioner, because only the lasting states marks a real transformation.
And here comes the aspect of discipline that takes the unconscious experience and lifts it through awareness, because of the systematic approach. By putting a conscious goal into the relationship and having practical methods to obtain it, we get the conditions for the experience to become lucid and thus being able to reflect and measure the results. This sounds for some, mechanical and boring, because they are used with pleasure being connected with unconsciousness and “loosing the head” in essence letting go of the control. We see this as a consequence in the society where duty and pleasure is separated and people seek false enjoyment and relaxation through unconsciousness; excess of stimulants, drugs, TV and unhealthy food for paralyzing the senses.
We speak about the conscious erotic intensive pleasure, including all the senses, which can create high states of spiritual ecstasy, when controlled and guided to higher levels of our being.
When we approach the sexual union full of love and aspiration towards the spiritual fulfillment, combined with awareness, we have a perfect set-up for a deep and profound experience with the beloved. If we want to have lasting states of ecstasy and spiritual awakening, it is important to repeat the experience and not to leave it as an outstanding experience based on good luck that day, but to mark it in our consciousness and analyse what made us have that experience - then we can repeat it until we have obtained the aimed goal.
The attitude that Tantra is suggesting is to courageously approach the sexual exercises and should be a combination between the detached state related to karma yoga, the precision of a scientist and the devotion and transformation of a real mystic.
The fundament of the tantric sexuality is love. Even though the tantric approach on sexuality contains methods and techniques to master the control over the sexual energy, this would never be enough in order to reach the truly deep and profound states of divine union in the lovemaking. What really accelerates our states into ecstasy is based on the intense longing and love we have for our beloved, and then applying the sexual continence in the intense and polar lovemaking, we have the perfect recipe for experiencing the divine union with our beloved and the entire Universe.
One of the biggest secrets of Tantra is that the sexual energy hides the greatest potential for transformation and evolution of any human being. The sexual potential is the very manifestation of the creative primordial power at the individual level. Wasting this potential is a fast way to loose all your vital energy. Mastering this potential, maintaining the creative energy through perfect sexual continence, is the way to reach perfection.
Lovemaking with love, transfiguration and sexual continence awakens an enormous amount of energy in the aura of the two lovers. This energy can be used for transforming entirely those beings on all levels through awakening of the superior chakra-s, expanding the level of consciousness over the subtle parallel dimensions, awakening the latent energy Kundalini etc. For this, the process of sublimation is the key. Without sublimation, all the energy resulting after the sexual continence is applied successfully, will tend to stagnate only in the sexual area, lowering its frequency of vibration and possibly generating even negative phenomena such as: irritability, frustrations, tensions, indulging in the trap of sensorial pleasures, confusion, haze, possessiveness, jealousy and attachments.
Through sublimation, sexual energy is directed to other non-sexual aspects of a person such as vitality, psychic and emotional structures, mental and spiritual areas.
Sublimation is a process performed by will. Transmutation of the sexual energies appears almost spontaneously as long as the sexual potential is kept inside during a very intense and effervescent lovemaking (and not wasted through ejaculation or explosive feminine discharge respectively), the energy which results has to be directed and controlled afterwards. If it remains mostly in the sexual area it will have the tendency to ‘condense’ back in lower aspects, producing only an increased sexual appetite and the feeling of erotic desire. It is always a conscious choice to sublimate the energies, either by will, visualization or tantric techniques.
The orgasm: a way to ecstasy
Lovemaking with continence is the way to discover that love, tenderness and sensuality add countless delightful nuances to our whole existence, as well as ensuring excellent health. And, moreover, the sublimation of the energies at superior levels produces powerful spiritual transformations, the goal of any spiritual path.
One of the biggest mistakes nowadays is to equal orgasm and ejaculation (sexual discharge in the case of women). Tantra describes the orgasm as being a blissful state of expansion of the consciousness beyond all the individual normal experiences, in which the usual limits of the selfish ego are suddenly cancelled, the tyranny of the mind is abolished, and the subject experiences a certain form of ecstasy. For a short moment, one discovers in amazement, the abandonment, the death of the egotism, the canceling of the time, and the experience of the Unity, which makes this condition identical with a metaphysical experience; therefore, in terms of the tantric system, often the Enlightenment (the state of ecstasy) is even called "the cosmic orgasm".
In simple words we can say that the orgasm is the door to ecstasy. On the contrary: the ejaculation is the u-turn on that way. Prolonging the orgasm beyond the normal limits through the sexual continence leads to super sensual experiences and enriches us with incredible capacities. The lovemaking experience becomes an opportunity to explore the mysterious land of ecstasy, overwhelming happiness, pure blissful joy, and super sensual games. The feeling of love in a couple is strengthened by the controlled orgasm. Instead of being an exhausting experience, orgasm with continence reveals its sacred meaning.
The true, profound orgasm appears when there is a perfect state of polarity within ones being.
As a very process, the phase of orgasm is characterized by the loss of the individuality (ego). The excitation, previously focused mostly in the genital area, begins now to spread in the entire body, rising towards the head. An intense process of transmutation of the sexual potential takes place and the energy released inside, is leading to an overwhelming state of happiness, pleasure, intuition about the hidden mysteries, insight beyond the ‘normal reality’ and even mystical states. Together with this amazing spiritual experience, the entire physical body feels rejuvenated and regenerated due to the resorption of the rich elements contained in the semen (or sexual feminine fluids) and the re-cycling of them for feeding the inner organs and nervous system. This is the secret process of using the sexual potential (sperm in the case of man and sexual secretions in the case of woman), which is transformed in substances that the organism resorbs inside through the lymphatic network present around the genitals (in this way, all the precious substances that the semen or sexual secretions are made of, are reused and they feed the whole human structure: body, soul and spirit), and the resulting energy become part of the individual global energetic structure.
Once this potential is not lost through ejaculation, the orgasm experience can be repeated indefinitely and thus the couple (both man and woman) can experience the very famous tantric multiple orgasm.
The reason to practice sexual continence appears clearly in this light: it is the only chance to have a wonderful erotic relationship.
The lovemaking with sexual continence allows both lovers to experience peak states of orgasm (in the same time or separately), taking care constantly of the transmutation of the sexual potential (sperm in the case of man and sexual fluids in the case of woman) and sublimation of the resulting energies towards superior chakra-s and refined levels of one’s being.
So both from a human and spiritual point of view, the sexual continence is the wonderful solution to transform our lovemaking in a source of fulfillment and harmony for our couple relationship and, for the tantric initiated ones, to use it for our spiritual evolution [meaning the awakening of superior levels of the being (emotional, affective, mental, spiritual) with the help of the sublimed energies]. Also it is important to underline the importance of the state of orgasm as being an experience of non-duality and transcendence (starting with the limitations of the ego).
Tantra reveals that experiencing long, profound and controlled orgasms a human being has the chance to reach high states of ecstasy and transcendence.
In the tantric tradition, sensuality which is refined and amplified very much through sexual continence, appears as being a natural way to reach divine ecstasy (called in spirituality samadhi). Intense erotic experiences, due to the sexual continence, leads to a transpersonal state together with the other benefits. In the same time, this kind of eroticism is a mysterious way of knowing, the controlled pleasure and intense experience of the senses have here the role of a staircase to superior levels of consciousness.
The success in sexual continence implies some very important aspects. Without grounding the training within them, the practice of sexual continence is very difficult and also, even if the ejaculation could be suspended, spiritual results will not appear. The foremost important one is the LOVE. There is a big difference between having sex and making love. Just to mention few: having sex is a selfish perspective, egoistically oriented only towards satisfying one’s own lust while making love is a devoted and self-giving action of expressing one’s love and adoration for the beloved using the erotic energy. Having sex is limited to the genital organs, leaving behind frustrations and a bitter taste of missing the essential while making love is expanding one’s consciousness from finite to infinite with the help of the ecstatic states of orgasm, reaching hidden spiritual dimensions unbelievable for normal people.
There is nothing better in the world than to love and be loved back and a peak of this happiness is to make love with your beloved one. Tantra says: “when love is infinite, the impossible becomes easily possible.”
When love is missing but there is sexual attraction, you can only have sex. But when two lovers love each other, making love represents for them a wonderful crowning of their feelings.
“If a woman is free and radiant in feminine energy, the man is probably attracted; sometimes more attracted,sometimes less attracted, but always attracted. This attraction is not only natural, but healthy. It is a sign of polarity, the same kind of natural flow of polarization by which electricity flows between the positive and negative poles of a battery. The nature of nature is polarity, from the magnetism that flows between the north and south poles of the earth, to the attraction that flows between the masculine core and the feminine radiance of a woman.”
When there is a strong attraction between a man and a woman, it represents a big amount of energy which has a potential to be used for spiritual transformation. The more energy we have, the bigger is our potential growth. A state of polarity in a human being or between a man and a woman, lies in the game between energy and consciousness. Here the feminine represents the energy and the masculine the consciousness. It is a common knowledge that we attract our match, so a very feminine woman will attract a very masculine man, a more neutral woman will attract a more neutral man. The same is valid within our own being; when we have a lot of energy and emotion we need more awareness in order to polarise our selves, but if we are weak we need less awareness. If a person is very emotional but lacks consciousness, he or she will drown in chaos. If a person is very mental and aware but lacks energy/vitality, he or she will be very dry and unable to sustain hard or long lasting actions.
In Tantra we emphasise a lot on vitality as a base of any step on the spiritual path. A strong vitality is the fundament and hereafter comes the sublimation and awareness to lift our being to higher levels of consciousness. Here we can mention the direct experience of the state of vitality as a measure of the ability for high intense states of pleasure. When the vitality goes lower in one of us, we are not able to reach the highest levels of ecstasy, nor the ability to make love for many hours. The vitality is directly linked with the ability to experience and maintain high divine states.
The game of the masculine and feminine is a constant practise within ourselves to become perfect, balanced human beings. And the couple relationship is a very efficient tool for working with the polarity, where the man will represent the masculine pole of consciousness, focus, direction and firmness, and the woman the feminine pole of energy, emotion, movement and changeability.
The stronger this polarity is between the man and the woman, the greater the attraction becomes and represents the engine in the couple relationship. What we do with this potential engine is up to our direction. If we just enjoy and consume the polarity, sooner or later the attraction will disappear and this is what many couples experience like a drying out of their relationship, the passion gradually disappears and frustrations becomes more dominant between them. Often we experience that as long as one of us takes our part of the pole, the other one follows. It doesn´t help to criticise the other one or waiting for him to be more masculine or her to be more feminine. If you want transformation in the couple relationship, start with yourself.
The mans attraction to women is natural, normal, and beautiful. In fact, it is an aspect of the same desire that will ultimately lead him toward spiritual freedom. The women represents the feminine energy, Shakti, the creation. And the more the man is able to embrace the manifestation of the feminine, regardless if it is a storm in nature or an emotional storm from his woman, it shows his level of masculinity and ability to stand firm. When a man rejects the feminine manifestation, his ability for a strong polarisation diminishes. The more centered, firm and present a man is, the more energy he can contain. A man can practise the state of embracing the feminine in every moment, seeing the whole manifestation as his lover, feeling her, breathing her in and loving her equally in the wild stormy hurricanes and in the warm, gentle breezes. The feminine, even in the non-human forms of a lush tropical island or a favorite tune, is a way to polarise the man. The acceptance of sexual attraction, even with music and places, is at the root of our capacity to experience bodily pleasure.
If we take the same example in the case of the women, it means that the more she opens for her amount of energy, and let it flow freely, the stronger and more intense experiences she has, the more she will become present and aware. In the most intense, profound experiences of lovemaking - and especially in the moment of the tantric implosive orgasm, the woman can experience deep states of consciousness, transcending her ego and thus enter the ecstatic blissful void.
This shows us that the deeper we dive into our natural essence, as a man or woman, the more we polarise ourselves.
The polarity in the couple relationship is essential in order to take high spiritual steps on the path. The more intensity we create, the more we trigger a potential awakening of the consciousness, thus sublimating the energies upwards and enter the gate to divine ecstasy.
An efficient method to create polarity, is the tantric lovemaking done with love, transfiguration and sexual continence, making an intense awakening of the senses combined with a state of lucidity and being fully present in the moment. When we stimulate the senses in an intense, pleasurable way, we become present in the body and open a gateway into the depth of our being. If we maintain a conscious state of witness in the experience, we create the perfect union between the masculine and feminine aspect within our being. In the same time the man can focus on his masculine essence and the woman on her feminine essence and become aware of the polar game in the sexual union with the beloved.
In the game of polarity, if we look at the history of time, men have always enjoyed to watch women, to see them manifest their feminine qualities - and it is a feminine attribute for the woman, to shine and manifest her love and beauty. Men will even pay to watch a woman’s body express ecstasy. In our Western culture, most men are only familiar with sexual ecstasy, and so it is this form of free bodily expression that men pay to see, in movies, on the stage all around the world. However, in cultures that admit a greater degree of spiritual revelation, women’s bodies are viewed with the same masculine awe, but for a different kind of expression: not merely for their capacity to express sexual ecstasy in a way that is foreign, and unbelievably attractive, but also for their capacity to express spiritual ecstasy. Temple dancers in India, for instance, are traditionally feminine women trained from an early age to combine skill and heartfelt devotion in a style of dance which frees their bodies to be moved by divine force, bringing tears to many men’s eyes and openness to their hearts. A woman who is at home with her feminine essence is at home with energy, be it sexual or spiritual. For such a woman, there is no disconnection between sexuality and spirit. Whether in a strip joint or a sacred temple, men have been attracted for thousands of years to witness the feminine embodiment of ecstasy. Women are literally worshipped in such occasions.
A womans sexual surrender, if she is with a man who she truly loves, is the same as her devotional or spiritual surrender.
Recipe for rebuilding polarity
1. Stop bad habits which damage the polarity.
2. Take a break. Use the time apart to regenerate and build your own pole, increasing femininity in the case of the woman, and masculinity in the case of the man.
3. Increase and awaken the sensual erotic energy.
Practice sexual continence and improve it constantly. Contemplate erotic art and use aphrodisiacs.
4. Be romantic as often as possible. Do something, big or small, that your beloved will really like, every week.
5. Be prepared and considerate in the company of your beloved. Prepare yourself for your meetings, and do not show yourself in a non-beautiful way.
6. Increase intimacy and focus on continuous transformation. Use time together to go deeper in your connection with each other. Invoke the energy of the beginning by remembering all the beautiful moments you had in the beginning of the relationship.
In the couple relationship with a base of deep love and spiritual aspiration for growth, it is a constant issue to maintain the polarity as a method for lasting happiness, fulfillment and spiritual transformation. As a man and a woman we have to be aware of our inner essence and consciously manifest and renew our masculine or feminine potential.
First of all we need as a couple to set a higher goal and purpose for walking the path together and then apply all the necessary means to keep the right track. Be honest, courageous and take the necessary actions to overcome any limitation. Aim to have a daring, detached attitude towards your inner challenges.
The more polarity we have between us, the more we are able to accelerate into higher states of consciousness. We should always aim to seek intense experiences and nurture the erotic fulfillment and intimacy in the couple relationship.
And more important above all else; love, love and love.
With love & aspiration

Attention! New Issue: The sexual continence!
You shall no longer do it... without it! For it lasts longer, it makes it better and it’s all yours ever after!
Making love! Such a wonderful thing...
Yes, it is...but making love, not sex...!Sex is good as well, but love makes us feel and even be better, more beautiful, generous, powerful – even like gods, maybe. It’s not for nothing that they say if love is endless the impossible shall be easily possible.
Here we may wonder what makes the difference between love and sex. There is quite a huge difference, indeed, which is love itself. It’s a wonderful thing to be in love and to be loved, but there is a peak of love, which is making love. This means, when love is missing, despite any chemistry – that is sex, and when love is there, to make love is a wonderful achievement and top of love itself.
We all want to love and to be loved, many of us may wish to make love, if possible, no matter when, where, how long, and no matter the age, but, of course not to whoever and however. For, there are things to be learned even in making love.
Well, is it possible no matter where, when, how long, and is it tremendously wonderful and amazing? Well, it is possible by means of the sexual continence.
The idea came from the East and has been applied along ages by the Indian tantric philosophy adepts, by the Chinese Taoists and those from the adjacent countries. This used to be a great secret of life how to make your love flourish and by making love to become happy and strong. Reaching the West, this love practice – consisting in sexual continence – attained a quick spread, particularly during the last decades. There are lots of people who have discovered sexual continence in lovemaking and followed it. Why do you think they did? Well, for it is worth.
The advantages in practicing sexual continence:
- it awakens a huge number of orgasms (both for man and woman) and incredibly increasing pleasure;
- a state of appetite and eternal longing for the lover, they seem not to get enough of one another;
- sexual longevity;
- regeneration and rejuvenation;
- increased vitality;
- elimination of feebleness, turpitude after the lovemaking;
- psychic balance, increase of creativity, awakening of intelligence;
- increase of charming personality both for the man and the woman;
- elimination of any unwelcome pregnancy;
- considerable decrease of the woman’s period and of the awkward subjacent effects;
- many women are finally aware of what orgasm is (it’s known for a fact that women need almost 30 minutes erotic stimulation whereas the man is done within 10 minutes in most of the cases)
- breasts natural enlargement for women.
Moreover we get a chance to reach back to ourselves as spiritual beings in a superior understanding of love and life.
What is sexual continence, then?
This mainly means sperm retention inside the man’s body, without releasing it by ejaculations or pollutions, and for the woman, no explosive juice during orgasm and decreased period secretions.
Why should we hold back our sperm? Since very old times, people have noticed that the sperm a man ca ejaculate in a lifetime is a given amount, which can even stay in the body at old age, according to the wise way it is eliminated. There are undeniable cases known of men that have been fertile even after 100. We normally can see that the andropause (sexual rest that man is forced to by the end of his life) is highly delayed if the man had carefully weighted his sperm resource. As usually, once the sperm resource is over and therefore no longer present into the body, vitality, memory, creativity, physical strength seriously decrease and the subject is obviously prey to the old age. The witted instead only see their age when they look into the mirror and they have no worries then, for they still feel in power.
A woman that practices love with sexual continence gets much more sex-appeal and her beauty and brightness often last for incredibly long time. The prostitutes, on the contrary have too many juice orgasms and they quickly get worn out, lose their beauty and fall prey to physical and psychic decadence more than any other women.
There actually is a quite close relationship between the sexual potential inside the body and the inner force of a man, as it’s known for a fact that all men with special inner force also dispose of strong sexual potential. Things have been pushed that far that in order to attain enough force, famous men or women (businessmen, leaders, politicians, militaries) who are not aware of the sexual continence seldom perform sexual intercourses. They instinctively chose abstinence – a partial solution, by far – as they considered between making love more often without continence and career, they would rather go for the career.
However, abstinence could not stand for a solution, because men often attempt to lose sexual potential while asleep, by pollution and women by abundant and painful menstruation.
Therefore the sexual potential is a physiological gift by birth and it can be used more or less wisely and be consumed sooner or later. Here we realize we really need to know how sexual continence can be attained.
How is it possible yet to make love without ejaculation or discharge (in the case of the women)?
It all starts from the scientific fact that orgasm and ejaculation – for the man – or the specific squirt – for the woman – are not necessarily connected. There are many situations known when orgasm is plenary experienced without the physiological squirt. The scientific perspective suggested and proved as an explanation to this phenomenon the theory of the biological transmutation of matter for low energies, even inside the human body. This shows that man’s sperm and woman’s sexual fluids can turn into energy inside the human body, according to Einstein’s famous formula E=mc2. The calculation shows that such energy is huge and it stays inside our body at different levels, which secures the above-mentioned advantages.
Whether we have time or not and can read and check the scientific theory of this extraordinary physiological aspect, the fact is that it exists and we can directly know it by practicing sexual continence. It’s the best reply for the sceptical: let’s see for ourselves how it functions. For it is really worth!
This has been known for quite some time and been often practiced in secret. For there have been kings and leaders looking for charm and power; there have been courtesans and men after a sexual glory, trying to impress their lovers with their sexual performances. But there have been some others who wisely took the sexual power as a valuable secret for life harmonization.
These days, the famous rock star Sting admitted after some insistence that by sexual continence he may even make love to his wife for eight hours, having just a lunch break after four hours. He says he thereby attained extraordinary results, all the more his relationship with his wife is much more consonant now.
Also, Raquel Welch, an extraordinary beautiful actress, has successfully practiced sexual continence in couple relationship and therefore admitted that part of her charm and her power to live a consonant life is due to this practice.
How to do it?
The point is the so-called sexual energy control, that we can feel proportional to the erotic feeling intensity. The control basically consists of obstructing man’s ejaculation and woman’s squirting by all means. Besides, sexual energy control i.e. sexual continence can be easily performed by a woman and it barely requires basic training. Usually the woman only has to pursue no squirt orgasm, which would lead energies downside and trigger uterus spasms. The woman can mentally direct the energy of pleasure to the upper levels of the being, and the energy will spread in pleasant waves in the whole body.
What makes great importance is the common sense and the rightful measure in all our actions. Although there are some rules, quite valuable in fact, nothing must be taken mechanically but adapted to what we are feelings and to the situations.
After 10 minutes foreplay at least, slow penetrations, are kindly made to relish the ineffable charm of the lovemaking and the beauty of the beloved, while paying attention to the increasing sexual energy. We shall feel the woman’s sexual energies absorption by the man’s sexual organ, as well as by the whole contact area of the two sexual organs. The sexual tension is ever higher and we feel closer and closer to the juice point…
It’s now time to:
-hold on or suddenly move out (according to the excitation degree and to our training)
-stop breathing in or out;
-we strongly shrink the anus (the muscle controlling defecation);
-we strongly shrink the urinary muscle (as if we want to prevent a strong need to urinate);
-strongly shrink the pubis-coccyx muscle (which also shrinks when we want not to urinate, despite a strong need to; this muscle is situated between anus and sex);
-strongly shrink the muscles down the penis or the vagina and clitoris muscles;
THEREFORE THE ENTIRE PELVIAN PLEX IS TIGHTENED SITUATED BETWEEN THE ANUS AND THE PENIS (or the clitoris in the case of the women).
-we strongly squeeze our fists and teeth (but not too strong);
-we tighten our back;
-we push our tongue back stuck to the palate (obviously do not swallow it)
-we imagine in our mind some energy in the lower part of the body, concentrated in the genitals area, which we mentally direct to the upper part of our body, along the spine; we shall mostly focus it in the middle of the forehead.
These actions are supposed to be taken all together, with maximum intensity, or just part of them, according to the need and according to how efficient we consider them, for 5-10 seconds or as long as we please, until the sexual tension decreases at some level that affords the sexual energy control.
Then, we resume penetration, slowly rather than quickly as much as we feel convenient for the sexual energy control. If considered necessary we may stay motionless for some time and only move when the erection lessens, then we stop again (still in contact).
We keep feeling the pleasure of the woman’s sexual secretions absorbed through the man’s sexual organ, as well as through the entire contact area between the two sexual organs.
We shall discover exquisite joy that we couldn’t have even guessed by slow penetrations or by stops (yet in contact).
Such contractions and mental focus can be performed for long whiles, still in motion (i.e. not only during the crisis moments). This will help preventing the near limit situation, drawing to a dangerous moment for the sexual energy control.
In case the man has misevaluated it and reached a point off control, there is the last chance: the three fingers technique, which implies to utterly press three fingers along the urethras in between the anus and the genitals. The contractions and the mental focus will keep going. Ejaculation can be stopped in this way or the sperm amount that still might be eliminated is much smaller.
The postlude is highly important and always required, after which the lovers should stay apart from each other, as far as possible during 7 hours at least.
Therefore, a special chemistry may emerge between the two lovers and they will be more attracted to each other when they next meet.
Serious training for sexual continence can be attained by long and firm contractions of the anus muscle as long as possible, also by practicing the abdomen retraction and the intermittent urination. The latter can be done every time we urinate, by breaking the urinary jet as much as possible, by firmly shrinking the urinary muscle for at least 1-3 seconds in between two jets. The urinary muscle and the pubis-coccyx muscle can be shrunk even out of the urinating process (during any day work), which engenders a quite pleasant energising feeling inside the whole body. In doing so we shall reach incredible sexual performances. But we shouldn’t perform it like some sport, using our new abilities in order to impress the sexual partner by actions that lack love. Sexual continence is an instrument, some ability for us to satisfy our life and the one we love. In acting without love, the being will decay and waste the gifts and abilities that had been discovered.
All the above physical actions are highly efficient particularly if we display firm mental focus; it may even be possible by simple mind focus to attain the sexual energy control, without using any of the above techniques.
Therefore, let us pursue making love only if love is there. Let us love as much as possible from the bottom of our heart. Besides, sexual continence is much easier to be accomplished when one loves and one is loved.
Just as we have said, what really matters is the common sense and the right measure in all our actions. Let’s keep in mind that a master owes his wisdom to practice!
An exceptional technique!
After lovemaking, in order to feel better and fully fructify the effects of the continence, it is worth practicing as much as possible the abdominal retraction technique. Stages of execution:
-standing in a bending position, hands on the knees;
-to begin we take a deep breath in, then we try to breathe out as much as possible;
- we firmly shrink the diaphragm and we strongly retract upside and backside the belly organs, which will go as if sticking close to the spine; as strange as it may seem, the technique will be the better accomplished the more we succeed this retraction. Do not worry, no matter how unusual it may seem, this position has exclusively good effects;
-during this retraction, we focus just like we do during the lovemaking, so that the lower energy should go up to the superior parts of the body, mostly to the head level, in the middle of the forehead;
-at the end of the retraction, we relax the diaphragm, and release the belly organs downside: this is the only moment we may breathe in; next we may breathe at ease and resume the technique immediately or after a few more breaths.
For serious effects we must intensely repeat the abdominal retraction technique, for at least 30 times. The technique is recommended at least 30 minutes before lunch.
The technique is not recommended in case of ulcer, colitis, appendicitis, when it may be painful.

Positive thinking is considered in yoga a success’ sine qua non condition, whether it is about success in yoga practice or in any other benefic action we want to.
The reason why yoga puts such a high price on positive thinking is the knowledge of the occult law of resonance. According to it, our thoughts put us in resonance (energy subtle connection) with different force secret spheres of the Universe and facilitate, thus, a transfer of energy from them to us.
By these mechanisms, which are perfectly real and infallible even if they are secret, man gradually becomes what he thinks he is, as the yoga wise aphorisms say. We create our success or failure in any direction we go with the help of our thoughts. We are the ones creating our happiness or misery; we are the ones responsible for our inner developing and our external behaviour.
The thoughts of success and score put us in resonance with the energy of success while chaotic, predominantly negative thoughts put us in resonance with energies of failure, mistake, and disappointment. If you carefully analyze the lucky or the successful ones, you will notice they are full of optimism and self confidence.
Positive thinking in Hatha-Yoga practice
In order to easily progress in yoga practice, you must learn to think positive and to be optimistic. Never tell yourself: this yoga exercise is much too difficult for me. On the contrary, think yoga is a scientific discipline, that is, anyone who does it right reaches the mentioned results. By practice, patiently, you will be able to realize even the most spectacular asanas, the most difficult pranayama techniques.
Here is a very efficient practical modality: while you do a certain yoga posture that you cannot do very well for now (due to stiffness, lack of equilibrium), visualize yourselves or mentalize yourselves perfectly doing that asana. The subtle effects of the asana will be much increased and your progress will soon be visible!
Positive thinking in concentration and meditation exercises
The same thing applies to any yoga exercises. If you are someone who does not focus very well, your mind being dispersed, if you cannot feel very well or at all the energy wheels or if you are not very good at the meditation techniques, perseveringly apply the principle of positive thinking! It is a way of proclaiming your confidence in yoga practice efficiency and in yourselves.
Always approach the meditation and concentration techniques with optimism and joy, feeling the freshness they produce when the mind is calm. Every time joyfully think with anticipation that meditation is an exercise that you like very much and that you can do better and better. All great yogis’ successes can be repeated and actualized in your being!
For those who cannot directly feel the energy wheels or some of them, we have several supplementary positive ideas: all yoga trainees gradually come to feeling their energy wheels sooner or later. It is a thing certified by direct practical experience with yoga trainees. The wheels of energy can be felt in different ways: vibrations, pressure sensations, warming but other specific feelings also.
For instance, love is an obvious expression of Anahata Chackra’s dynamism. All persons who are in love feel “something” in their heart – in Anahata Chakra actually! Think positive as you will succeed waking up and feeling your wheels of energy sooner! And do not neglect the importance of finding information on this topic; you must study very well the theory on the energy wheels.
Supernatural accomplishments? Why not?
It is true, advanced yogis do not have the fascination of supernatural powers at all. But since some of them are very useful (empathy, telepathy, previous lives recognition), it is good to know that positive thinking can act here as a powerful engine propelling us towards success. So, think positive in everything good you want to do and study the example of those who already achieved that.
And in the end, a fundamental aspect: the goal of yoga practice is reaching the state of oneness with God, the ecstatic fusion with God Father, reaching the supreme spiritual absolution. Yoga definitely tells us it is perfect possible to reach this fundamental goal of life and yoga practice in this very life, on Earth, no matter the karmic conjunctures we were born with and we live in now. Do not think for just a minute that this is not possible! This is the power of the authentic spiritual paths. This is why you must think positive: you can reach the ultimate spiritual absolution in this very life if you want to and if you practice yoga with perseverance and devotion!

Inspiring thoughts regarding the Spiritual Guide - Aspirant relationship
By yoga professor Nicolae Catrina
The essence of the relationship between the Spiritual Guide and the aspirant can never be known only from the outside, because in fact it can never be an object of knowledge for those who are not ready to identify with that ineffable, mysterious state experienced by an aspirant on the spiritual path. It is also necessary to realize that this relationship is not a concept that we can understand only with our mind.
Even if we can speak about this relationship between the Spiritual Guide and the aspirant, defining it in different ways (some of them very subtle), all these are only “marks” on the path each of us has to walk in this direction. Basically, all these are just impulses from the mind that appear within the spiritual practice (Sadhana).
Only one heart: the Supreme Godly Heart
Truly speaking, we can never encompass only with our mind this ineffable, mysterious and fundamental initiatic reality (the Spiritual Guide – Aspirant relationship) because when we truly experience it, in its mysterious and sublime dimensions, it is then that we mainly experience the divine state of non-duality in which, for the aspirant, only God exists.
In reality this is the ideal modality in which we should relate to our spiritual Guide; perfect non-duality (advaita) where, symbolically speaking, there no longer exist two hearts (that of the Spiritual Guide and that of the Aspirant), but only one heart – the Supreme Godly Heart: The Eternal Heart of God the Father (Paramatman).
Doing this, then and then only, a complete inner certitude will awaken within us regarding the righteousness of the Spiritual Path we follow, as well as of the teachings of our Spiritual Guide. This certitude, generating miracles, will open our soul towards perceiving an uplifting state of absolute perfection regarding all the words and actions of our Spiritual Guide, because in that state of non-duality only God exists and, as we all know, God is in eternity perfect.
Spiritual practice full of aspiration, done having as support this ideal relation to the Spiritual Guide, will gradually transform that initial certitude in a profound realization of the Immortal Self Essence (Atman). At the same time, this mysterious process that transforms our being will be harder to express, to conceptualize or to explain to those who do not experience our state. For the human beings who do not have the same state as us, this process will be perceived from the outside in paradoxical or irrational forms. The sacredness of the spiritual guide – aspirant relationship, which “fills up” more and more our entire inner universe, will most often not be noticed – although for us almost any attempt to express it in a coherent and logic way for the others can be perceived as an “impiety” (in other words, it appears as an attempt to renounce the sacred for the grey and flat dimensions of the profane).
Above any spiritual initiation
For the human beings that have transformed enough, as a consequence of their engagement on the spiritual path, the essence of the spiritual guide – aspirant relationship resides therefore in the most intimate realms of our Immortal Divine Self (Atman). This essence represents the non-dual experience of the Divine Spirit, which spontaneously recognizes itself. Such a mysterious experience is impossible to describe in words, even for the one experiencing it, because conceptualizing it, thinking it or expressing it places us automatically in the rigid and suffocating trap (from the spiritual point of view) of dual logics (and also dualistic) in which a subject observes a certain object.
On the other hand, it is necessary to underline that the profound and intimate experience of the Spiritual Guide – aspirant relationship is almost always unique and belonging only to ourselves, in the same way in which any state of divine ecstasy (Samadhi) is always unique and at the same time complete in itself. As we said, it is always accompanied by that complete and unmistakable certitude about the righteousness and spiritual plenitude (or, to be more precise, completeness) of this direct connection, from Heart to Heart, with our Spiritual Guide, a secret connection that we spontaneously realize as being beyond any other spiritual initiation, because in fact it is the essence of any spiritual initiation!
Saying all these, it is also important to add that this certitude can never be mistaken with fanaticism or different obscure beliefs, due to its light, transparency, tolerance and unconditional opening to all the forms in which the Divine Truth presents to us in everyday existence.
The supreme initiatic mystery
If sometimes, on the way, certain doubts still appear within us (either about the Path we follow or about our spiritual Guide, or even about our possibilities of spiritual perfection on the respective path), this shows that we are not yet fully established in this supreme initiatic mysterious reality (which, as I had showed above, represents the essence of the Spiritual Guide – aspirant relationship, which awakens within us the spontaneous state of non-duality).
On the contrary, constantly seeking to deepen this supreme initiatic mystery represented by the Spiritual Guide – Aspirant relationship, we will gradually discover that enlightenment and even spiritual liberation become for us a gradual process, more and more natural and spontaneous (of course, this does not mean that it will not be necessary to make certain efforts). At the same time, this represents an open and mysterious, uplifting and brilliant process, which gradually encompasses the entire outer objective reality and is always characterized by love, honesty, compassion, complete confidence, wisdom and, last but not least, by a great simplicity.
At that point we will be able to experience naturally and directly extremely high spiritual states (which will become perfectly accessible for us, according to the level we reach) and if we study carefully, we will notice that these aspects are presented also in some of the most elevated spiritual traditions of this planet. For example, in the ancient tradition of Kashmir Shivaism, this is the spontaneous and direct “Recognition” (pratyabhijna) of Godliness in all details of our existence; or, in Tibetan tantrism, this is “The Supreme spiritual attitude” (mahamudra) etc.
The condition of “Spiritual Son”
Of course, in this direction, only direct experience can offer us that certitude of the non-dual state in which, apparently paradoxically, although we are fully abandoned in the sublime but indescribable experience of the essence of the Spiritual Guide – Aspirant relationship, we also realize that we are truly ourselves (even more then ever before); in other words, we are completely free from any dependency or constraint!
[This mysterious spiritual experience could very well be compared to the state of complete surrender of the individual will to God’s Will, which is almighty; also in this case, even if we might consider the surrendering of our will as something rather restrictive (when we can no longer do “what we want”), the truth is that through this we reach complete and perfect freedom – the Absolute Freedom of God the Father!]
If we have not yet reached this essential condition (which, in the Kashmir Shivaism tradition is called the state of “Spiritual Son” or, respectively, “Spiritual Daughter”, we will need, over and over again, many mental and intellectual confirmations or, in other words, we will need many wisdom treaties to offer us, at least partially (but never definitely!) a certain inner certitude that we are “on the right path”. Then, instead of the simplicity and naturalness of the condition of “Spiritual Son”, we will need, before making the smallest step forward, many explanations and “guarantees” which will make us confident about what we do and especially about the fact that our efforts are not in vain.
The divine “Magic” of the Eternal Beginning
For some (who are more tested and can even fail at some of the tests that appear on the spiritual Path), this almost constant doubt and mistrust in the power (efficiency) of the Spiritual Path that we follow is the main obstacle. Such an obstacle gives us the belief in a “quantitative” complexity of reality, pulling us further and further away from the wonder of the spontaneous, simple and direct Path of the “Recognition” of God both in our Heart as well as in the entire surrounding reality. If we are in this situation and we indulge in it, we will search for more and more complex explanations or different mental confirmations, most often forgetting that spiritual realization is characterized, first of all, by love, simplicity, complete faith, honesty and spontaneity!
Regarding this situation, the great wise man Lao Tze, which is the “father” of the Taoist tradition, said: “IN ORDER TO OBTAIN ORDINARY KNOWLEDGE (DUALISTIC), WE MUST ADD SOMETHING EVERYDAY; BUT IN ORDER TO OBTAIN DIVINE WISDOM, EVERYDAY WE MUST PUT SOMETHING ASIDE.”
Therefore, what is truly essential for our spiritual practice is the amplification of this state of superior certitude or, in other words, of complete faith in the Path we follow and in our Spiritual Guide. For this, it is very good, especially when we notice that the faith in the Spiritual Guide has diminished, to relate as often as possible to the magic moments of the beginning of our spiritual practice, when our effervescence, purity, love, trust and aspiration were fully blessed by the mysterious freshness of the energy of the beginning, or all the moments in which we had “top” experiences in the respective direction (in other words, we must relate to and to evoke in our inner universe the moments in which we savored fully the unmistakable proofs of the Presence of the Divine in our relation with our Spiritual Guide).
D oing this often enough and living the mysterious states, full of freshness, which we have experienced at the beginning, we will surely discover, sooner or later, the divine “magic” of the Eternal Beginning regarding our relationship with our Spiritual Guide and we will enter again its sacred space, in which, on the background of love and giving, any Divine Wonder is easily possible.
The hidden treasure of the complete trust in God
Doing this, we will discover or rediscover again the hidden treasure of complete faith in God and in our Spiritual Guide. In the same time, we will awaken that spontaneously liberating ecstatic simplicity of the heart surrendered completely to God. Doing this, we can be sure that all our doubts regarding the Spiritual Guide, such as excessive criticism, lack of contentment, misunderstood perfectionism (applied destructively, instead of constructively) etc., will disappear as if by magic, being alchemized into Light, Love, Honesty, Goodwill and Truth. In this way, we will discover that this indescribable brilliant simplicity is complete in itself. All these transformations are, without doubt, available to each one of us and they are possible only through the complete faith in the Spiritual Guide. This faith is the solid basis of the complete realization of the Immortal Divine Self (Atman) and all these will bring the Plenitude of existing in God’s liberating Grace.
On the contrary, if due to the severe lack of faith in the Spiritual Guide we will wrongly consider, due to our wild imagination, that the path we follow here and now is full of imperfections and mistakes, shortly afterwards the direct and easy Path to God will be blocked, by ourselves, because our Heart will be covered by the impurities of the insecure, frightened, oscillating, suspicious and dualistic mind, with our inferior desires and choices, which will gradually destroy this mysterious, uplifting, subtle state of grace (therefore, so fragile), specific to the pure, spiritual state of “Spiritual Son” (in other words, specific to the ideal relation to our Spiritual Guide).
The trap of the exacerbated ego
If we fall and we get lost in this state, then our selfish, hidden desires will soon create and even strengthen our own limiting ideas regarding a so-called spirituality that we project in our own likeness. Soon afterwards, we will begin nourishing different weird ideas regarding the Spiritual Guide – Aspirant relationship, ideas that we will aim to justify and confirm by combining or interpreting in a more or less distorted way the different spiritual information we have gathered from many sources but which we “have digested” only partially, because we approached them mainly with the mind and not with the Heart. Indulging in this state, we can get lost and can even drop the Spiritual Path, because we will not be able to truly open our soul to God, because we will lack faith. Then, we will often make huge efforts just to keep ourselves in a weird, artificial condition, which is our (selfish) idea about a so-called spirituality projected in our own likeness or about the Spiritual Guide – Aspirant relationship, as we see it when we are astray.
Indulging in this state we will regress and we will get lost and, sooner or later, in order to stubbornly defend these personal ideas, we will start criticising (first in a very subtle, hidden way, then in a more obvious, even aggressive way, ending with denigration) the Path, the Spiritual Guide, the revelations he made, the methods he offered, etc. In the final phase, if we will not do anything to come out of this cunning, tragic and complex trap of the exacerbated ego, we will leave both our Spiritual Guide as well as the Spiritual Path, justifying our gestures in different ways.
The key of the spiritual realization: faith and responsibility
Besides this, the problem is that this state will generate within us very strong “partisan” reactions: we will fight hard to support or promote our ideas, our weird points of view, our absurd convictions, and this inner crisis will grow and we will never know the ecstatic peace of complete simplicity and complete acceptance of life. Moreover, we will often feel an intense inner tension – which, due to our exacerbated ego, we will never admit to the others – and tiredness; afterwards, our consciousness will not be able to rest or centre in itself, because it will be occupied and fascinated by the weird ideas we have adhered to and which we “must” protect at any price or to constantly have them confirmed.
An ancient saying of eastern wisdom says: “Any aspect of reality, any being, any object appears, from our point of view, exactly as we look upon it.” For those who are and indulge themselves in this state, this saying helps to understand what actually happens with them. The fundamental key of spiritual realization, as affirmed by all genuine spiritual traditions, is to reach that complete faith in the Spiritual Guide and in taking the responsibility for all the events we experience, because all of them come to us exclusively according to God’s Will, because in reality they appear in our existence only because we fully deserve them.
That is why the great wise men say: “Every human being always has what she deserves.” When we are “armed” with this superior attitude, with honesty, humbleness, goodwill and love, we will successfully overcome all the spiritual tests we will be given and each time we will discover (even if, at the beginning, not always immediately – due to certain uncontrolled momentarily reactions) the hidden and profoundly initatic meaning of each important event of our yogi life, even when all appearances show very clearly that we have been seriously misjudged, or when we have the impression that we are not appreciated enough, as we consider that we deserve, etc.
Our perfect mirror
[In this direction, it is essential to remember what most spiritual traditions say: In the complex and indescribable relationship with us, the Spiritual Guide is always, whether we want it or not, our perfect Mirror, which objectively shows us to ourselves, exactly as we are here and now, and not how we imagine ourselves to be or how we would like to be or to seem to be! Knowing this, it is essential to realize that the mirror is never to blame for what it reflects. As it is a perfect mirror (and, as we all know, the consciousness of a spiritually liberated being is often compared to a perfect mirror), it will never reflect us differently then how we are, in order to “please” us or to gain our sympathy: whatever the risk of this reflection, it will always offer us the Truth and only the Truth about ourselves! Besides, that which it shows us, whether good or bad, about ourselves, does not affect at all its state of purity, because the mirror never identifies with what she reflects in complete detachment].
Then, truly, as the great yogi and wise man Sri Aurobindo said: “Our entire life will become a form of yoga [a certain spiritual path]”. To this we can add that, in fact, it is about an extremely fast and complete form of yoga, because we practice it with our entire being and full of surrender and honesty – both to ourselves as well as to our Spiritual Guide, and also to God Himself.
Of course, we do not claim that we have exhausted this subject. These few ideas can only make a short, even imperfect, summary of the ineffable, mysterious and full of Grace reality of the ideal relation to the Spiritual Guide (in other words, the reality of the state of “Spiritual Son”, “Spiritual Daughter”, respectively). But these marks can indicate the direction towards which the search for this essential condition of the initiation in the Supreme Mystery of God’s Heart is very fruitful because, ultimately, through the Divine Grace that manifests through the Spiritual Guide (or, better said, “embodied” by the Spiritual Guide), the secret state of Spiritual Son reveals itself to be the state of Son of God.

In our SADHANA (the spiritual practice) countless traps can occur, which can divert us from the direct and ascending path leading us to the spiritual realization. Thus it’s necessary to have a larger view regarding the way we still have to follow, in order not to limit ourselves, not to stick permanently at the same stage. These basic aspects will help us much better know ourselves, clearly understand the stages we have already covered and also realize the stages we actually have to follow yet.
1. The initial euphoria which comes together with the first twinkles in the awakening consciousness will sooner or later tend to recede in most of the cases. This aspect is proper to the impact duration of the energy of the beginning, which gives us support when we take the first steps on the path of the spiritual achievement. After this effervescent period there often occurs a feeling of lack, a decreasing state of grace which can even lead to despair. The poem written by Saint Jon of the Cross named “The dark night of the soul” approaches this state of conscience of that one who feels he had lost for the moment the divine grace he was so happy to live before.
2. In SADHANA (the spiritual training), almost every new peak is followed by a new “valley”. Even the evolution process is generally ascending, the spiritual evolution is not linear but with many ups and downs. To better understand this helps us pass more easily and detached through both stages.
3. The more we purify our being it’s possible that our impurities paradoxically seem more and more serious. At this stage we have to understand that such phenomenon appears not because we are again stuck in the illusory aspects but because we indeed became able to see this ballast of our own being more clearly. The lions watching the spiritual formation temple gates become more and more ferocious as we penetrate in the most intimate and central area of the spiritual edifice. Obviously the light we can see now everything in is much more powerful and because of this everything becomes more intense and true due to the additional energy, which comes together with the next stage in our SADHANA.
4. In the beginning we’ll consider that our SADHANA takes a certain restricted part of our life and assigns to the spiritual practice a certain well determined extent of time. As the time lapses we’ll realize that, in fact, anything we do will became a part of our SADHANA.
5. One of the traps which can occur at some advanced stage of our spiritual evolution is the so-called “Sattva-ic trap” (or “the purity trap”). We’ll do all things (at least from the external point of view) the way we should do them, so, apparently perfect: in this case we’ll be monopolized by the idea we became a very pure being. The wise men metaphorically call this stage as the stage of “The golden chain”. Indeed, this is no more an iron chain, but it still is and remains a chain. We’ll thus have to finally give up even to this idea of our own purity if we really aspire to the total achievement of the divine Self (ATMAN), which has to be reached in this very life.
6. At the beginning of our spiritual journey we’ll often ask ourselves how long it will take and if we successfully manage it during this life. Latter on we’ll ecstatically live the incidence of the “NOW” moment, every moment, and the opportunities we’ll then have, one after another, will be understood in the terms of “HERE” and “NOW”. So we’ll understand then that any moment, even NOW, and every opportunity, even the one HERE, could be to us the right privileged conjuncture for the divine grace to manifest, the one who brings the ultimate spiritual achievement. At this level we’ll stop ourselves full in deep peace and sovereign serenity and will cease to ask ourselves questions about the moment and conjuncture in which we’ll attain the Supreme Spiritual Achievement.
7. At the beginning, walking on the spiritual path, we do nothing but pursuing to accomplish something we don’t have a perfect imagine about yet. Later on, we pursue to realize our SADHANA as constant as possible. Finally, we’ll simply practice, detached, SADHANA, because in fact “what else could be done?”.
8. At a certain stage of our spiritual evolution we’ll approach SADHANA with very much seriousness and obstinacy. Later on we’ll profoundly understand Jesus Christ saying, namely that in pursuing God man must not maim his face. A serious state of tonus and enthusiasm, a cosmic humor which must be manifested especially in the tough moments we pass through, this is another important aspect of our spiritual journey.
9. In certain stages of our spiritual evolution we’ll undoubtedly face some moments when everything seems to stay stiff. Such “still experiences” are also some difficult points in our spiritual journey. But we have to understand that, once we started this process of evolution, if we indeed do everything correctly our evolution cannot stop. It just seems to us that it stops (stagnate) when seen from our limited point and perspective. And in such situation we have nothing else to do than to keep going in even more tenacity what we have started.

A couple relationship is a very dynamic life situation that produces transformations – this is the tendency.
Many times we tend to fight against these transformations. Instead of allowing the transformations suggested by their couple relationship, some people tend to maintain the same state, to obtain a sort of continuity of the relationship without the necessary transformation.When we do this, we stop from that relationship. Sooner or later, we will become aware of the end. In a spiritual relationship, we must stay in a state of spiritual alertness. We must maintain the ability to learn continuously.
Who is not willing to learn in a couple relationship is ready to sacrifice the couple relationship for the well-being of the ego. From a different point of view, it is as if two parents want only to keep the child silent, at any price. They do not consider why the child cries. Maybe he is hungry… and when the child is quiet, they are happy. But maybe the child is dead. And then, he is quiet. This is not a solution. Out of unconsciousness, people involved in a couple relationship aim to keep the relationship quiet, so it does not give them any challenges. They want something warm, which does not disturb their mind or soul – their daily peace, and in this way they consider this is an ideal in the respective relationship. Even unconsciously they act like this. But this is a very serious mistake, because in those moments we oppose the most direct divine inspirations that come through the couple relationship. When we want the relationship to give us comfort, peace and no challenges, we react against this creative energy that manifests through the polar relationship.
The couple relationship starts with diminishing the ego – meaning, from a certain introspection. Due to ignorance, many people start their relationship from a state of exteriorization.
The ego does not have a beginning, but has an end. Wisdom has a beginning – the death of the ego and has no end.
Relationships based on ego do not have well defined beginning, because it was not a conscious action to engage in it. If the relationship is spiritual, in which we engage beyond the ego, full of love, the relationship is a conscious option. We are aware we are in that relationship, in that state of love and of the transformations it involves, which become permanent – we are no longer afraid of them. Then, the relationship is endless, because the transformations are endless.
When we engage in a couple relationship we will be exposed to transformations. For some, this is clear only as long as it is good, meaning as long as the limits are not crossed, as long as the ego is not endangered. A real couple relationship, a dynamic and strong couple relationship, is characterized by continuous transformation. It is does not protect the ego in any way. We must start with the idea that if we want to transform somebody, we have to start with ourselves. In a strong polar relationship there is the tendency – because the relationship itself indicates transformation – to want to transform the other one. This is a fundamental mistake.
First of all, we have to transform ourselves. Afterwards, we will notice that the relationship itself changes. Therefore, we say that in a loving and transfiguring couple it does not matter who is right, but it matters who loves. Whenever such situations of necessary transformation appear, which in the beginning are felt as tensions or as bigger or smaller limitations within the couple, there is the tendency to start separating who is right and who is wrong.
Anyway, the truth is in the middle. It is very important in such situations to focus on the state of love. In this way each person will transform, first of all, and automatically, if each one does this, when they look at the relationship, the relationship will already be transforming. Otherwise, there is the possibility that often appears in relationships – the two lovers lose their energy and time searching to see who is or who was right. This is not important. In such a difficult situation, if you focus on love, you also see who is right and who is wrong, but then it does not matter so much. Both lovers see this, but they are in the state of love. We have experienced this many times and it is important to remember these things consciously. There have been situations when we were trying to establish who is right. If in that moment we had stopped and said: "Let’s love each other", it does not matter who is right, if we love each other, we also see who is right. Then, the situation transforms instantly and we can see who is right.
