Total Darkness

(from Advaita Musings)

Total Darkness. We are in fact in Total Darkness. Out there there is no light, ie the sensations within the brain which we describe as light, which our vision is constituted off. This is because the sensation of light as we see it does not exist in nature. It exists only within the brain. Let us assume that there is a three dimensional world out there, with light sources reflecting off objects. The simple fact is light as you see it doesn't exist in nature, it is the effect of coded information exciting cells in the brain.

Direct Post Processing Induction. That is an intriguing geeky term. The kind of expression you could hear from Jeff Dean. What it could it possibly mean? It comes down to the brain, yours truly, how it works, and how by considering alternative views of its workings, We, or I, come to an entirely different view of how reality, and the way We function within it.

Mangala-Vati 04
I have been longing for good pictures of one of my favourites Crushes of the Month, and who would believe it, there is a God after all. And what's even better is that it is a video, an even more magnificent one, with lots to choose from. Here is Mangala-Vati in glorious techicolor, with her dazzling presence and beauty leading a troupe of Krishna devotees of Krishna right across Paris, showering her inhabitants with the presence and blessings of Lord Krishna, whereever she goes, on whoever she glances at. What greater sight could a crypto Hari Krishna devotee wish for, other than the presence of Lord Krishna himself?

I Am God, Does That Make Me (An) Atheist?

Submitted by Carlos Quinto on Sun, 08/07/2012 - 22:49

I am God.

I am self aware

I am conscious

I am thoughtful.

I am an intelligent being, the most intelligent of all beings.

I have an enquiring mind.

I possess the faculty of memory.

I possess a moral intellect

I create life.

I fashion life.

All that is intelligent in the world arises from My intelligence.

I do not have to look out onto the world, look out onto my Creation to see evidence of my intelligence. I only have to look within, for said said intelligence.

Krishna, Brahma and the Gopas

Submitted by rchurch on Sun, 13/12/2009 - 13:56

The Srimad Bhagavatam has an interesting chapter about the nature of the ego and identity, described in a story about a contest of power between Krishna and the Creator God, Brahma. There is no need to repeat it here, as you've probably read it. It is available online at krsnabook.com a>

Krishna's ability to manifest himself in the forms of the gopas and calves is expressed. But what about the unexpressed part?
