Dimensions and Lokhs; Beings and Devas

Relating the Vedic to the New Age

In this age we read spiritual terms in English.
Then there are ancient terms in Vedic knowledge, in the Jewish Kabbalah, in the Egyptian culture, the Greek, Mayan, and so on.
Then there are scientific terms which may correspond with a spiritual aspect.

When we are familiar with one culture, tradition, or set of terminology we often don't recognize the corresponding term in another and therefore can't relate, or think it's different.
When we are able to find the relationship between definitions then suddenly we realize a lot of commonalities between the ancient, the new, the scientific and the spiritual. It somehow confirms that it must be the truth if so many for so long are saying the same thing.

Nowadays we hear the term, 'Ascension', 'Dimensions', 'Beings', 'Extra Terrestrials', 'Soul', 'Consciousness', and so on.

In Vedic terminology, 'Lokhs' relates to 'Dimensions'.
'Beings' and 'Extra terrestrials' relate to the different beings mentioned in the Veds and Purans, .

There are 14 Lokhs. 7 lower or descending Lokhs below the physical universe. The other 7 Lokhs includes:
'Bhu' the physical 3 dimensional universe;
'Bhuvar' that includes the souls that have passed on and relates to the 4th dimension;
'Svar' or 'Dev' lokh where the Devas and some Rishis reside. These Devi-Devatas (dieties) are beings of light. 'Dev' means luminous one, or one who illumines. This lokh broadly relates to the 5th dimension.
These are the 3 Lokhs in which most souls recycle from birth to death to birth again, or the cycle of 'Samsar'.
Then there is 'Maha' (6th dimension), 'Tapa' (7th dimension), 'Jana' (8th dimension), and highest 'Brahma/Satya' lokh (9th dimension) all a part of creation, or greater reality. What we see as the physical universe is only the 3 dimensional reality or 'Bhu' lokh.
All these Lokhs are still in the sphere of creation, duality, or Maya. It is beyond this that is Brahman, the Ultimate Supreme Consciousness. Time slows down and space expands as we move into higher Lokhs or dimensions. These are not physical but subtle realms.

The 'extra terrestrials' and 'beings' we read about relate to the many subtle forms of beings that are mentioned in the Vedic texts. These include the Devas, Asuras, Rishis, Siddhas, Kinnars, Yakshas, Gandharvas, Manas putras, Prajapatis, Kumaras, Avatars, and so on. In addition to these subtle forms there may be physical forms of beings on other planets, like humans. We don't talk about it now in the Kali Yuga, but till the Kali Yuga other beings, dimensions, higher states of consciousness and special abilities such as telepathy, were common and normal.

Our ancient texts talk about mind born sons, or subtle thought forms, of Brahma-ji. Four of these are the Kumars, they never age. Their names are Sanat Kumar (who I believe also manifests as Maha-avatar Babaji), Sanandan (mentioned by several as the oversoul of Jesus), Sanak, and Sanatan, These mind born sons of Brahma also include the 7 original Rishis, also called Prajapatis, the creator beings. These were not physical forms but thought forms. These beings last as long as creation lasts. Then there are beings which are light forms, Devas. Many of these beings (including Rishis), came to earth and started the human civilization or mingled with humans for progeny, these stories are in Purans, Itihaas, eluded to in the old testament, the Egyptian books, and many other ancient texts. Some physical forms were also organically growing here. A lot of these Rishis, Devatas, Siddhas, Avatars, etc. are also capable of taking physical form, ie descent from higher dimensions into the 3d earth dimension. That's why the Rishis and people of ancient civilizations were so advanced in their knowledge. They were far more evolved beings which descended here on Earth and built advanced communities and cultures. Some of the remnants of this ancient civilization and knowledge can be found in the Vedas, Kabbalah, the Old Testament, the Egyptian civilization, and so on.

We are familiar with the blue skinned Avatars, Sri Ram and Sri Krishn. They were actually blue skinned and the texture was like that of the dolphins. Avatars are one of the highest evolved beings in the Vedic tradition, higher than Devatas. The Vedic texts also talk about several Nakshatras, a star that's part of a constellation. There are 27 main Nakshatras, and one more, Abhijit, which is the star Vega. In the Gita, Sri Krishn says that among the Nakshatras I am Abhijit. Rudra, the Vedic deity of transformation, is associated with Ardra Nakshatra which is the star Betelgeuse, of the Orion constellation. The origins of the Indian race, I have heard, was seeded by beings from Vega and Sirius, and perhaps many others including Orion. The 7 Rishis are the 7 stars of Ursa Major. Could it be that these subtle light beings were from those stars?

The Vedic texts mention the gradual decline in civilization through the ages, called Yugas, this relates to the decline in knowledge, Dharma (natural law), dropping from higher states of consciousness, removal of the light aspect. We are presently in the age of darkness (or ignorance), the Kali Yuga. In this Yuga we are as though in deep slumber, the light has been shut out and because of the lack of light, dark forces are more dominant, such as anger, hatred, greed, and other negative emotions.

Many of us are reincarnations of those same highly evolved beings of the ancient world, the Rishis, Siddhas, Devatas, Avatars and other evolved beings. We have completely forgotten our true nature, we have lost our true history, so we think we are inferior beings struggling with darkness. Now we pray to Gods such as Sri Krishn and Sri Ram, and worship the Rishis and Devatas as though they are separate from us. When consciousness awakens in us and we remember our true nature that is the Avatar consciousness in us, or the Christ consciousness in us. We will remember our history and our connection with the greater universe, as one. There will be unity of consciousness among all beings. That consciousness within us is subtle Light, it is higher vibration than the lower vibration of matter. Like the difference between water vapor and ice. So when this realization and awakening happens in us, there will only be light and therefore no darkness. This is like remembering, and going back to what we really are. This is the return of the Satya Yuga, the age of truth and purity, as the Yugas are circular.

The new age material talks about the coming of...a new age! This would be assisted by certain galactic waves of high vibration energy. At the present time a lot of people will evolve to the 4th dimension and become more spiritual. Many are already in the 4th dimension/density prior to this 'shift' into the new age. You will read a lot about 'Ascension', referring to the evolution of a small percentage of people from the 4th dimension, carbon based body, into the 5th dimension, becoming a 'being of light'. The carbon atom becoming a crystal atom. The Deva rupa or light being form is of the Svar/dev lokh. 
New age masters also talk about Gaia (earth) transitioning from the 3rd dimension to the 4th dimension. 

The concept of "Moksha" is liberation from cycle of birth and death, and merging back to Brahman (eternal universal consciousness).
The ascension spiral is the evolutionary path of a soul through the various dimensions back to the Source. There are many variations this basic core new age message. 

Knowing the structure of creation is good, however; the main thing to realize is that Oneness, we are the Ultimate Supreme Consciousness, Brahman.. There is only One. That One is both immanent and transcendental at the same time.

We live in exciting times. Let see where destiny is leading us!
It's a beautiful endless journey in eternity and infinity. We are like one spec of a fractal, an exact replica of the whole that replicates itself infinitely...

Om Shantih!

Reality is Multi Dimensional

Time is an illusion Space is a prison of limitation. The linear is only 3 dimensional and reality is multi dimensional. It throws you into realms incomprehensible. Like an ever evolving...changing...multi colored fractal. Divine, Beautiful, and Magnificent beyond belief!

It has started... We have started waking up. My higher Self said, "This shell I had created and maintained waiting for my true light being Self to now come in". The lower self, the carbon based body, the world...seemed like an illusion. This new Reality seemed Real. 

Beyond the mind and beyond comprehension, can only be experienced, to realize that this so called reality is just a dream...

Then I happened to use the Trinfinity 8 app on my phone, and lo and behold! it was the same as what I had experienced, except this was a 2 dimensional representation of the multi dimensions it represents. 

It seems as though we have been 'capped', or kept in a quarantine, or held down to a limited reality. Now suddenly that contract was over and the limitations removed - now the earth is free, and now the universal energies and beings from all the dimensions are showering their benevolence on us, for use to be what we truly are - multi dimensional beings. Unfathomable it is.

You Planned This Life

This life your soul has chosen and planned with the divine before birth. What karmic debts you will pay off, which tendencies you will erase, the syllabus of lessons you will grow through. 

The baking through each lesson is part of the process.
Pain and suffering breaks us open and prepares us to awaken and integrate the learning, as I have experienced. Without this we don't seem to learn. And even then many don't realize what the lesson/message was! And the pattern repeats till we learn. That's why we need to be on spiritual path. Very few learn from the pain and suffering of others but go through their own.

Each one of us is a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. 
The learning happens in the cocoon. If one is lucky enough to learn and grow from each experience one had chartered for this life, the fruit at the end of the process is ah! so refreshing like a lotus blossoming in loving light!

How do you treat yourself?

The way you treat yourself is the way you will let the world treat you.

Patterns of experiences repeat themselves till we integrate the learning and grow from it.
It can be a relationship with parent, spouse, child, or friend.
It can be long and sustained, or short and intense.
Our inner shortcomings attract the same lessons, till an inner blossoming takes place, and the light shines within.

We get affected by people and situations. Perhaps in my case I have developed a deep impression that I am not loved or accepted as I am. Judgments have lead me to lose my own self-worth, self-acceptance and connection with others. These impressions within cause my soul to manifest experiences in which another person doesn't love or respect me. The impression deepens and the cycle continues. Until I work earnestly on taking myself out of the cycle of misery.

I have gone through many repeated patterns of experiences to learn the lesson of my life; to have self-worth, self love, to honor myself, to hold myself in divine esteem, to nurture and pamper the child within me that feels no one loves but whom I need to love and embrace. Need to accept and love myself as I am. Need to feel that I am a beautiful divine being blessed by God's loving grace. I need to value myself as much as God does. Then I wouldn't be treated as worthless, disrespected or abused. I need to hold on to my power and not give it away to be manipulated.
The amount one respects and loves oneself is the amount others will. When we love ourself we are not affected by others. This is not an egoistic love, but a knowing that I am love.
When the love and light dawn within it is a beautiful feeling.

Atma ke Bande

Iss duniya mein koi na hai saga                  इस दुनिया में कोई न है सगा
Khuda ke bandein sabse hain juda            खुदा के बन्दे सबसे है जुदा

Jao koi na pyar karo                                      जाओ कोई न प्यार करो 
Akele akele toot kar bikhar jao                   अकेले अकेले टूट कर बिखर जाओ
Khuda ke bandon ho jao sabse juda          खुदा के बन्दों हो जाओ सबसे जुदा

Chatur chalanki se kya mila?                       चतुर चालाकी से क्या मिला?
Svartha mein akela reh gaya                       स्वार्थ  में  अकेला  रह  गया
Khuda ka banda sabse hua juda                 खुदा  का  बन्दा  सबसे  हुआ  जुदा

Kathor dil krodh mein jal gaya                    कठोर  दिल  क्रोध  में  जल  गया
Ahamkar tera Karm se piss raha               अहंकार  तेरा  कर्म  से  पिस रहा
Khuda ke bande sabse hai juda                    खुदा  के  बन्दे  सबसे  है  जुदा

Jhoot tera sacch se haar gaya                       झूट  तेरा  सच्च  से  हार  गया
Agyan ki kaid mein dukh ki hui sazah        अज्ञान की  कैद में  दुःख  की  हुई  सजाः 
Khuda ke bande sacch se na ho juda            खुदा  के  बन्दे  सच्च  से  न  हो  जुदा

Kahan jaaega kiska kheench kar?                कहाँ  जाएगा  किसका  खींच  कर ?
Atma ke siva koi na yahan duja                    आत्मा  के  सिवा कोई  न  यहाँ  दूजा

Ek Eswar hai Ek he Atma                             एक  इस्वर  है  एक  हे  आत्मा
Mehsooh karle bande                                       मेह्सूह  करले  बन्दे
Ya phir ghum peeta ja                                     या  फिर  ग़म पीटा  जा
Atma ke bande Ek se Ek hoja                         आत्मा के  बन्दे  एक  से  एक  होजा
Kissi ko himsa pahunchana                                        किसी को हिंसा पहुँचाना
Kis kitab mein hai likha?                                             किस किताब में है लिखा? 
"Guru ne bola" jhoot saabit ho gaya                        "गुरु ने बोला" झूट साबित हो गया
Ab Guru ko bhi mitti mein milla diya!                     अब गुरु को भी मिट्टी में मिला दिया
Kab tak Guru ki aadh mein chuppega?                    कब तक गुरु की आड़ में चुप्पेगा?
Apne karmo ka phal tu hi sahega                              अपने कर्मो का फल तूही सहेगा
Vriksh ki chaaon mein tu nahi badhega                   वृक्ष की छाओं में रौशनी की तरफ नहीं बढ़ेगा

Lessons from Soul Mates

Sometimes life's greatest lessons come through the deepest wounds...
I've learnt an expensive lesson...that spiritual powers are not indicative of virtues or spiritual evolution. Witches and Angels both have supernatural powers!

Sometimes life's biggest lessons come through the closest people...
I've learnt a painful lesson...that differing natures compliment each other in our soul group.
Yin and Yang are soul mates, light and dark are soul mates, wisdom and ego are soul mates, love and hate are soul mates...

There is only one ultimate we are all soul mates. 
Polarity and variety creates oneness.

Karmic Payoff Happening in the Past?

A thought came to me in the middle of the night that the person who is treating me badly right now is paying of their Karma in a past life. That was such a "Oh!" moment, as my current thinking was that the Karma paid off was always in the future. Could it be that Karmic payoff is also happening in the past?

Apparently in a higher dimension, time is not linear. That dimension transcends time, so past, present and future are all happening simultaneously. Mind boggling isn't it? That means that all the past, present, and future lives are being lived right now. So over all, across all lives, Karma is being balanced right now simultaneously in the past, present and future. Could this be true?

Most spiritual masters, psychics, clairvoyants, and past life regression therapists, all refer to Karma in the past being paid off in the present, or may in the future. So I wonder if this new insight is correct or not...

Perfection of Speech

Who am I to criticize?
Criticism requires immense love, a great amount of respect, the absolute negligence of negative emotions and a state of balance.
Criticism with any negative energy will fire back at you and cause damage to both. When criticism has anger it is selfish. Selfishness serves the ego and squashes love. What can one achieve with angry words? How can I not react to things I don't like? And how to deal with harsh words spoken to me? It's very important for me to cleanse my heart, fill it with love and wisdom, for my speech to be right.

There is a very useful verse in the Gita on Perfection of Speech.
Speech with causes no disturbance in the other; Speech that is Truthful - Pleasant - and Beneficial (Satyam-Priyam-Hitam);
Speech that practices the study of the scriptures; these constitute the "austerity of speech" (Gita 17.15)

See speech has to have all three ingredients, truthful, loving, and beneficial. It should be sweet but not be pretentious sweetness, because it has to be truthful, but not bitter truth because it will disturb the other person, and it should be for the benefit of the other person, not for selfish satisfaction.

I have failed miserably many times by speaking angry words, with despise and dislike. It doesn't matter what the provocation was, or how bad the cause. Reaction is worse than wrong action. One can only control one's own behavior and change oneself. No one can change anyone. No matter how bad the other person is behaving, I need to remain detached, and most of all have unconditional love and wisdom. I don't know if I can be perfect every time, but I can at least aim at being right more than fifty percent of the time.

Make your Self front and center

Make your Self front and center. Make it the most important thing. Invest in your Self. Feel the connection with your Self. Because the soul is the center of your existence. Once centered, consciousness becomes the medium of operation, for everything, you will see, it is miraculous.

We must connect with all the levels of our existence! We must feel connected to our world. We must feel connection with others, and everyone. We must feel a loving connection with our family. We must connect and communicate with our own body. We must connect and become aware of our breath. We must connect with and observe our thoughts. We must connect and sense our subtlest feelings. And we must connect with our own Self! We must connect with that which observes the world, people, body, breath, thoughts and feelings. Who is the one connecting? We are always centered in the soul. We just don't realize. Why? Because we operate from the mind. But who operates the mind? Who observes the mind? Where do thoughts come from? Doing this is meditation.

Meditation doesn't mean sitting in a lotus posture and trying to meditate. No, it's not a technique or exercise. It is being still and observing, becoming aware of who's observing. It is Being. Connecting with that observer. That's the Self. It permeates the thoughts, feelings, breath, water in a sponge. There is nothing but Self. You can be meditative at any moment even with your eyes open. A walk by yourself in nature, being fully present there, just enjoying nature. Sitting by a stream and just letting yourself flow. Looking up into the stars at night and having that wow moment! Lying down being silent, relaxed, and just being with yourself. Listening to soul stirring music, especially sacred songs, just merge with the music, go into trance. Meditation is the effortless awareness of the Self.

We all meditate, we just don't realize it. We are all aware of the Self but we just don't recognize it.
One bubble in an ocean asked another bubble, "Have you seen the Water?" The other bubble said, "No, I haven't but I've heard so much about the Holy Water. I really want to witness what this Water is like, you know. I feel so disconnected with the Holy Water. I know of a big bubble who has witnessed Water, have you heard of him?". The first bubble replied, "Yeah! I have heard of him. But you know he's way up there, so evolved, I will never get to that level, I'm just a small little bubble down here. I've tried to meditate on Water but just doesn't happen you know." As they conversed they floated up in the ocean carried by divine Grace, lifting them towards the surface, even without their awareness. And what do you think will happen when they reach the surface?

This post is dedicated to my friend Subina :)

Next book: Unfolding into Unconditional Love...and Devotion Divine!

Need to finish my next book! Here's the website and Synopsis:

"Unfolding into Unconditional Love …and Devotion Divine!” addresses the problems in relationships and the longing of every heart for love. The fundamental and essential nature of all humans is that of unconditional love. The fallacy of seeking love from others brings misery and the unfolding of unconditional love from within takes us home to bliss. The compassion for others is an expression of the love within and devotion is the pure love for the divine. All faiths have devotion in common and this book celebrates the beautiful diversity of devotion from various faiths. As human beings we can all identify with the feelings of love, and love is the same in all human beings, though expressions may differ. When devotion is expressed from the heart it kindles the same in the reader. It is the objective of the book to foster unconditional love in others.
Devotion being her innate nature, the author narrates her passions of longing, praise, and celebration of the divine. Each time it brings forth her intense devotion from the core of her being as a natural and effortless flow. She takes us on a boat ride through the pleasure gardens of divine love. Through mysticism she creates the visions of ecstasy and intoxication, much like the devotional saints of the past. This spills into a sense of oneness and unconditional love for all.
The goal of human evolution according to several faiths is liberation. Devotion and unconditional love for all is one such means of attaining this goal. Through the path of love one learns that the journey of life is from the head to the heart, the core of our being. The final merger with divine consciousness is achieved in a grand celebration of uniting with the beloved, with one’s own Self!
