Inspiring Wisdom Stories – Lessons for Life

October 11th, 2017

The last weeks two friends sent me links to videos of Sean Buranahiran, a young and very successful Thai internet star who is talking about doing something good and living an ethical life. More than 2 million people by now have subscribed to his Facebook page and he publishes one wisdom video per week on his YouTube channel, with over 120.000 subscribers.

The videos are done with simple means – it seems either by himself with a mobile or with the help of friends. He teaches moral principles with catchy stories and in a language which people can easily understand. And he has a magic way of speaking which inspires and touches the listeners.

He is giving public talks, too, although I heard him say on a video that he doesn’t want to travel much any more since he gets headache – he had been a kick-boxer and got whams on his head… Above all, he speaks in a “down to earth” and humble way about things like having respect of others and oneself or about finding inner peace.

On his website, you find classes/lessons in which he shares his thoughts, techniques and personal experiences. He calls it IVM (meaning 4 – the Latin IV – and M, meaning mastering). The four M are:

1. Mastery: How to a master a skill. The higher you go the more humble you must become.
2. Mission: How to set life’s purpose and make a living from it.
3. Mindfulness: Make peace inside and out, then you will hear what is in your heart.
4. Manners: Having good manners will take you where money can’t.

He gives people the feeling they can do something for themselves and others – really a work of good will!

Btw., he speaks a lot about a practical philosophy of life but on the web and in his social media channels I found nothing about him as a person. Although he seems to be active in Thailand, he gives as his address L.A. (Los Angeles) – what does it matter for universal wisdom?

Autumn Equinox Celebration at the Paracelsus Centre – A Day of Peace

September 24th, 2017

Like in previous years, we met again at the Paracelsus centre to celebrate autumn equinox. The four festivals of equinoxes and the solstices form the great cardinal cross of the year. They are points of transition in the movement of energies which you can clearly feel if you align to them in a contemplative attitude. They are like portals in time which allow you to move inward more easily. The equinoxes are times of balance and represent the yogic consciousness.

Interestingly, the International Day of Peace (Peace Day) is held annually at Libra equinox on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, the Peace Day now reaches hundreds of millions of people to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Although we were just a small group, we aligned with all groups celebrating the equinox and the spirit of peace all around the globe. Here are some impressions of our celebration.

Libra – Nyasa Vidya, Adjusting to the Planes

September 20th, 2017

The Eastern sages have developed a science of superimposition called Nyasa Vidya, where they imagine themselves permeating the whole earth or the cosmos. They meditate the North Pole in their head centre, the South Pole in their base centre, the equator in their solar plexus and the Himalayas in their heart. They inwardly study the currents of magnetism that flow around the earth and use them to purify the centres along their spine and to free the thoughts from personal influences.

Likewise, correspondences can also be established between the parts of the body and the planets, the sun signs or the planes of consciousness. When our orientation to a larger system is complete, the energies of our system are rearranged in accordance with the larger system. Disorder is brought back to order; thereby, one radiates and remains magnetic.

To depict these dimensions, I placed the silhouette of a human body over an image of the globe. I created the radiance of the inner centres by using photos of aquamarine gemstones and of a lotus. You see the lines of the magnetic field as the human and the planetary aura. The central axis of the spine is prolonged via the axis of the earth to a galactic axis. For visualising the seven planes of consciousness, I transformed and multiplied extracts from a NASA photo of the Sombrero galaxy.

Healing Drug Victims on the Other Side

September 12th, 2017

Last Sunday my wife and I were again invited by Lilli, a Swiss-Japanese friend of my wife, for a lunch with some friends of her’s in her home at the Lake of Zurich. It was again an interesting get-together of nearly the same persons as in the last years – Japanese ladies with their Swiss or German husbands and six children – the children and the Japanese ladies with a delicate Asian physique – and clairvoyant in certain degrees.

Lilli told us about her recent tour to a number of big cities in the United States. Unlike in previous years, she noticed everywhere larger numbers of people destroyed by drugs, especially by crystal meth. Being a clairvoyant, she also saw great groups of departed drugged souls in a desolate disoriented condition. She saw that the deceased junkies were still craving for drugs and therefore they attached to incarnated drug addicts and often obsessed them.

One of the Japanese ladies who is working as a medium was contacted by a deceased Japanese artist / musician who is working to help drug addicts on the other side. Lilli and the others joined to lend support. They try to bring them to an institution at a serene place on the subtle planes they call “The Greater Lakes”. There the junkies get help and orientation about their state- often, they have not realised that they are no more in physical bodies. Where possible, healing of the heavy psychic and etheric distortions is given and also the many tattoos are removed – they have very bad etheric effects. When a certain degree of cleansing has taken place these individuals are sent to higher planes of light.

Lilli also works with “the opposite party” – deceased members of drug trafficking gangs. They were often drug-addicts themselves; they frequently died in some shooting and also are in a horrible situation. Lilli feels the two groups need to be kept apart and she gathers the traffickers on the subtle counterpart of a Pacific island far away from the continents. There are some monks on the inner plane taking care of them: “The monks themselves are not really pure beings but much better than these gangsters.” She described a bit the atmosphere there.
Lilli also sees groups of deceased drug victims from Switzerland on the other side. She asked my wife for help: “I cannot speak to them, they don’t understand English or Japanese – better you contact them in Swiss German…”

While the children and the husbands stayed inside we gathered on the balcony. The other ladies shared their impressions of the situation. Lilli: “Here in Switzerland you don’t see much of these drug excesses in public like in the States but there are quite a number of confused souls stuck on the other side with the horrible effects of their addiction.”

Although my wife felt that language is not a problem for this work, she tuned in and started with her work. The others joined. I inwardly aligned and in my way prayed for these lost souls. It felt a bit strange – knowing of the reality of the subtle spheres and of the effects of one’s actions which condition the experiences one will go through, there is nevertheless grace and help coming. After a while my wife and the others said that it was done – they did no more feel the presence of the departed ones who had been around seeking help.

Inside, the conversation took to other, more casual directions. Lunch buffet was served – “fusion cuisine” with items from Japan, India and Switzerland. Looking over to the children – I had seen them already the last years – Lilli said, “They have kept their inner openness. In school, they close down to be like other children. But their clairvoyance does not get lost.” A goal she is working for by training the kids from time to time.

On the way home, my wife said, “My work is not like this, with big groups of souls. I work with individual clients and their psychic problems. When some issues of groups of souls from the other side come up, I deal with them but this is definitely not my focus.” I replied, “And mine is none of these, although I know both are important.”

Eye Contact Experiment

September 10th, 2017

A friend today sent me the link to a fascinating  video about “The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment“.

The initiative is organised by a group of young people from various backgrounds who call themselves “The Liberators International“. The idea came “after noticing a common thread of isolation in today’s society.” So they organise events where people share 1 minutes eye contact with a stranger in the heart of cities and towns worldwide. “Holding eye contact with another person can evoke many feelings which can be scary, especially when in today’s society we tend to repress our deepest emotions.” More…

The next global experiment with events in many countries around the world will be on 23rd of September 2017, during the UN International Week of Peace.

Have a look at the video from last year’s Eye Contact Experiment, where 124 cities cooperated.

Read more about their inspiring mission: “”We are a whole movement of people passionate about sharing acts of love and kindness in public.”
“We are here to lead by example to allow the people of planet Earth to see that we are brothers and sisters of the same human race, travelling together on this Earthship we collectively call home. We are a global family of people ready to actively be a part of the change we’d like to see in this world. We use our skills, intelligence, gifts and abilities to create positive experiences for the world to actively participate in making today and tomorrow’s future more sustainable and harmonious. We create large scale global events that create an experience of unity for the Earth, we also create festival experiences of unity that uplift crowds of people by combining ice breaking games with a banging DJ set. … We do not force, we simply give rise to a new opportunity.”
“Our Vision for the Future: We aim to coordinate, record and distribute monthly global acts of freedom, which reconnect humanity with their innate, interconnected power.”

You also find the Liberators on Facebook.

smoon – an App for the Daily Astro Data

September 5th, 2017

Benjamin, a good friend of mine from Munich, has built an app which shows daily astro-events as a calendar. He calls it smoon and makes it available for free:

The new app is launched today, at Virgo full moon. smoon stands for “sun and moon”. It runs on smartphones and tablets with iOS or Android, in English German or Spanish, in a few days also in French, later will come Portuguese.

At a glance you can see moon phases, constellations, sunrise and sunset, day and quarter rulers; short keywords indicate the specific quality of time. All calculations are done for your local position and time zone – everywhere in the world.

For installation on iOS download “smoon” in the AppStore, on Android search for “smoon” in the PlayStore.

The app is a practical tool for working with the daily constellations, for meditation or interpretation. It might help you to have the energies of the time in mind.

Virgo – The World Mother and the Four States of the Word

August 21st, 2017

The World Mother is the most sublime aspect of creation. She is the unlimited light of consciousness that emerges from the background of existence as the pure virgin nature. Virgo represents this aspect of the Logos as Mother. From there, the creation emerges in four states. They are called the stages of utterance of the Creator. The objectivity is the fourth state; three states of emanation of the Word are hidden in the subjectivity. The objective state is like the vocal sentence of our speech. Prior to that, there is the mental sentence coming from an idea, and prior to that the idea emerges from consciousness.

To depict the World Mother I transformed the photo of a statue of the Mother standing at the Godavari River in Rajahmundry, India. The four states of the Word are illustrated by different circles. At the heart centre and in the background you see the Sri Yantra, a symbol of the Mother, which contains the wisdom of the goddess.

The “landscape” where the Mother is standing is created with a lotus flower. For the background colours I used the photo of a sunrise in the Nilagiris. The stars of the Pleiades constellation, the seven Mothers, are generated with the help of the Stellarium software.

Utilization of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses

August 19th, 2017

Sunday, 20 August at 10:40 pm (CEST, Central European Daylight Saving Time, UT + 2) the phase of the 2nd Leo New Moon will start; the exact new moon time will be Monday, 08:30 pm CEST). Since the Sun is near the north node, which is moving through Leo, there is a solar eclipse at the same time, which will be seen in North and Central America and part of South America. The subtle effects of the eclipse will also be felt in other parts of the globe, although not so strong. During the eclipse time there is also a perfect trine between the Sun in Leo and Uranus in Aries, intensifying the energy. Such an eclipse in Leo only happens every 18.5 years and is a karmic cycle.

You find here an extract of the book of Sri K. Parvathi Kumar on “Sound – The Key and its Application” about the Utilization of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses”.
January 2010, there was a solar eclipse during the seminar in India, where he spoke in detail about the effect of an eclipse and the related preparation. Please Eclipses.

UTILIZATION OF THE SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSES
An opportunity like a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse can be favourably utilized to get the seed sounds initiated in us. The Eclipse time is found favourable to stimulate the seed sounds in us. Also the New Moon time is very favourable for such activities, but the eclipse is a greater opportunity.

We must learn how to live with an eclipse. Because we are eclipsed we are not able to make use of the Eclipse happening in the system. We should make use of the eclipse happening in the system instead of getting eclipsed.

1) There are certain fundamentals relating to how to behave with an eclipse. This morning we have experienced an eclipse, and it was very deeply experienced. It requires a preparation.

You should get ready, purifying your body before the eclipse happens; that means, take a shower and keep the body pure, keep the mind calm and do not engage in speeches and maintain a quiet attitude and tranquillity as the hour of the eclipse approaches.

2) At the beginning of the eclipse you can start meditating upon sounds which are interior or a mantra given to you, or keep chanting OM inside in the Heart Centre.

3) You should not have a heavy Stomach when there is an eclipse; it will have an impact on your Solar Plexus.

4) You must make sure that the bowels are cleared and the stomach is not heavy with food. Then engage with the sound OM throughout the time of the eclipse.

5) Make sure that you don’t have any activity in the outer world during the time of the eclipse, so that you can tune up to it.

6) Till the eclipse is over do not think of any intake, do not think of any speeches, do not think of any actions. Make a total tuning up with the eclipse and practise the sound with which you are familiar.

You realize the best effects of the sound during that time. Same is the situation when we are entering into the New Moon, and same is the situation whenever we are ending up a cycle and beginning a new one. It can be a lunar cycle or a solar cycle. It can be the Full moon time, 11th ascending and descending moon phases, 8th ascending and descending moon phases, equinox days, solstices. All these days are propitious to practice sound. Likewise daily, the dawn, the dusk, the noon and the midnight hours are favourable times to practice sound. Initiates make good use of these aspects of time.

When initiates utter, they utter that which is to be. This is because they are responsible in their utterances. Because they are responsible they utter only that which is to be and by proper utterance only they always maintain the magnetism in them. They are fully aware that if they make an irresponsible utterance they get demagnetized. To them, utterance is much more valuable than the most valuable currency on the planet.

They do not care for the value of money, but they do at all times care for their utterance, because their utterance is capable of manifesting. They are able to bring things from the state of imperceptibility to the state of perceptibility through utterance.

We are also uttering from imperceptible to perceptible layers, but we are not responsible in uttering and hence our utterances may come true or may not come true. An utterance of an average human being creates more confusion than construction. An utterance of an overcritical person always creates negative manifestations.

My First Meeting with Sri Kumar

August 17th, 2017

This is the story of my first meeting with Sri Kumar twenty years ago.

Profound processes often take a long time to grow. It took about ten years from my first hearing about the Master until the first meeting. Since the beginning of the 90s, I was in a group called the Agni School, which was quite secluded. From 22 to 27 August 1997, however, the whole group went to a group life of the WTT with Sri Kumar at Grosse Ledder near Wermelskirchen, Germany. The seminar was about “Music of the Soul“, the beautiful book of Master EK about Spiritual Hierarchy and events that took place at the time of Lord Krishna, 5000 years ago. The book just had been published in German.

For me these were very thrilling days – to listen to the lectures of Sri Kumar and the magic of Krishna. I had read the book already several times and even done a private translation. But the way he presented it revealed many details unknown to me up to then. And there were hearty exchanges with WTT members I met for the first time but it seemed to me that I knew them already since long. I very well remember how, sitting on a terrace, the Master informed us that he just was informed that Andhra University had conferred on him the honorary doctorate as Doctor of Letters. Towards the end of the seminar, there was a blessing of the children, where my two sons participated in the small ritual of first introduction into writing. Of course, they could already write but it was an exciting moment to sit close to the Master.

In the afternoon of the last day the group was invited to the garden of Doris and Günter for the inauguration of a Krishna statue. It was a hot summer day and the garden was filled with group members. The statue was placed on a small platform in a little pond surrounded by an octagonal glass temple and a big crystal ball on the to. First there was a fire ritual followed by three hours of Vedic chanting. The vibrations created a magic ambiance full of peace and harmony.

I later came back to this place at several occasions and each time I was touched to see this beautiful little shrine. 18 years later, in March 2015, I was there for the last visit, two months before Doris and Günter moved to another place. I again took some photos, one with a squirrel looking at the statue in a meditative attitude. The magic of Krishna’s presence touches all beings.

The touch I had received at this first meeting did not leave me. However, it took three more years before I felt free to join the WTT. My commitment grew over the years. It was not just a “honeymoon time” but full of crises. Profound questions and challenges use to come up from time to time. However, the thrill of my soul remained, in essence not coming from anything outer but from the presence within.

11 August: Birthday of Master EK, 12 August: Birthday of H.P. Blavatsky

August 8th, 2017

Master EK was born during the evening hours of 11 August 1926 in Bapatla, Andhra Pradesh, India, and Madame Blavatsky (HPB) was born during the morning hours of 12 August 1831. There is just a difference of 12 hours between their birthdays. So we celebrate both birthdays together and recollect them on this occasion.

Below you find some extracts from Master Kumar’s discourse on 11 August 2016 at Radhamadhavam, Visakhapatnam, India about qualities of Master EK, followed by a photo of Master EK and a painting of HPB. (See here the fascinating biography of Master EK.)

“Master EK was born on 11th August, 1926, Wednesday, 5:30 PM in a town called Bapatla. Master EK himself has given us the tradition to celebrate birthdays as per the solar calendar and that is why we follow the dates. Master CVV, Master EK and Master MN were all born in the same month (Sravana – Leo) as per the solar calendar. Madam HPB was also born in this month during the early hours of 12th August. As per Indian Time, there is a difference of 12 hours between the births of Master EK and Madam HPB. Madam HPB was born 96 years before Master EK and we have the tradition of celebrations both their birthdays together. So we try to recollect both of them on this occasion.

Both of them were great souls and they come from the same Hierarchy and both of them were entrusted with the work of handing over grand wisdom to the humanity in two consecutive centuries. They are self-luminous ones. The light inside them permeates into the surroundings.

As his followers, we too should try to follow what he demonstrated to us. Then we too can become self-luminous like him. Without following the path, if we just talk about a Master, nothing will happen. Master EK said in his 50th birthday message “I have not come to be worshipped by the crazy followers as their God.” The problem with us is we talk a lot but do little.

Master EK said “Those who follow the path I follow are with me. The others who just remain around me will just remain there.” He only cared for the work one does and not whether one is with him or not.

We used to feel very enlightened by his discourses but Master EK never had glamour on his discourses as well. He never asked anyone how the discourses are. I once asked him “Master! Why do you not ask us about how we feel about your discourses?” He replied “If you like, you will take the import. If you do not like, I do not bother about that.”

He never taught for fame. He never cared how were present for a discourse. The same was his view towards the books that he wrote. He never tried to promote them. He was only concerned of the work to happen through him. He never bothered of what people thought of his teachings or books.

Master EK used to give great importance to time. He used to say that any work is to be done when it is to be done. When someone is hungry, you feed him at that time, not at your convenience. The purpose of an act is lost when it is not done at the right time. When someone needs help urgently, help if you can. Don’t delay it until it is convenient for you.

He used to give away all the money that he had when someone was need. He never thought of repayment and never asked for the money again. That was the kind of renunciation he had towards worldly things. He was never interested in accumulating things.

He used to never live in the past or future. He only cared of the present and the work in hand. For him, life is to live in the present and remain in service of the needy. That way of life was highly joyful to him.

The only single instance where Master CVV himself appeared and initiated someone into his path was in the case of Master EK. Everyone else went to Master CVV to get initiated but the case of Master EK was unique. That is the speciality of Master EK. Master EK is the chosen disciple of Master CVV. It was possible because Master EK was so prepared to walk the path.

Master EK was even contacted by Master Koot Hoomi and then the reading of Secret Doctrine happened. He informs Master EK that he was chosen for a grand work and he with Master CVV. Master EK used to do prayers with Master MN for some days. There only he received the Occult Meditations that we follow now. Then he was contacted by Master Maruvu (Master Morya) and also some more Masters later. So all the Grand Masters came to Master EK. Master EK did not ask for it. He was just doing his work sincerely and everyone came to him.

Master EK used to take great care of people around him. He never discriminated among people. It was possible because he could see the Lord in all. He was ever in relation with the Lord.

He still remains accessible when one is in need. So his worship was not limited to prayer or ritual, it is an ever happening thing.

Master EK used to work as per the Divine Plan and he responded as per the situation. Serving others was his priority. He demonstrated various ways of service. It was all possible because of his Divine alignment at all times.
