Donna Summer's Love to Love, Serenading the Joy of Gaia

A woman's candid expression of carnal pleasure, joy and ecstasy is something which is supposed to be private, something she acknowledges to herself when alone, or when she is with her partner. Even then her partner is not privy to some of these expressions. In this song she appears to be reliving the experience, and expressing her feelings about her man in song.

Acknowledgement and Revival of Yoni Consciousness in Christendom

Yogaredux:

Spirituality:

Take the yoni as a symbol, like the cross in relation to the crucifix, free of the presence of the body with it, essentially the image of the virgin with the elements of the body removed, leaving only the surrounding halo, the lines of the clothing. Is there a case for such a symbol in Christianity? There already is such a symbol, but with the body of Mary superposed and ensconced within it. The desire here is for a wholly abstracted one, but recognizable in its features.

The Yonis That Saved Christendom

There are quite a few Virgins out there, but the focus of this series is Our Lady of Guadalupe in Her incarnations, Our Lady of Guadalupe in Extremadura and Our Lady of Guadalupe - Tepeyac with more emphasis on Her Mexican incarnation, the better known one.

The Advaita Sutra of Mooji

The Natural State of "I", Mooji, Ubatuba Brazil, 2008. This is the unedited version of the response Mooji which is summarized at I is not the person. This one contains the original question in Portuguese and the translations.

On the design, simulation, and creation, of mind

Let us assume that our thoughts and feelings are actually creations, that they are not mere side effects of the interaction between physical matter and the mind/brain. In effect God in Her mind fashions our thoughts and emotions. They are tangible/material elements to Her which She fashions or forms in our consciousness. She has her CAD workstation constituted of Her mind, where She forms these thoughts before putting them into production.

The Soliloquy of We

Spirituality:

Visitors to the TED website or their Youtube channel some years ago may remember this presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor. The ostensible title of the presentation is "My Stroke of Insight", but what many of the people who (have) watched it probably have never noticed is that its true title is "Who are we?" If you watch the presentation closely you see that caption appear a few times in the presentation.

The Darshan of Melani

MelaniI have been looking at this blog post of mine on Google and Isabelle. The photos of the women at the end have to be scrolled through one at a time, and a few times on scrolling through them I sense a kind of grace in looking at them. It is as though the beauty of the pictures is some kind of blessing, that it is some divine kindness which has made the images of those women available to be witnessed. In some way I have come to the conclusion that it is the picture of Melani is the one which contributes the most to this feeling.

On Being A God - Within The Direct Post Processing Induction

(from Advaita Musings)
I was going to quote a verse from the Gita here, but I can't locate it, so I will have to add it later.

The Electronic Brain

(from Advaita Musings)

Thinking along similar lines as the Direct Post Processing Induction let us consider a different case. In this one consciousness arises as an effect of the states in an electronic computer, rather than those in a biological brain.

In this example the whole world is modelled right down to the quantum level in a computer and the sentient aspect of the brain models the biological brain exactly, only in this example consciousness arises from the electronic states.

My Galactic Brain

(from Advaita Musings)

According to current theory, our perceptions are the results of brain states, with the brain being some kind of computing device, with states or configurations within the computer mapping to different perceptions.
