Anita Moorjani – Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview

Published on Jan 1, 2013

Anita was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and doctors told her family she was just hours away from death. It was at this point that she “crossed over” and then returned again into this world with a clearer understanding of her life and purpose on earth. This understanding subsequently led to a total recovery of her health.

Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multi lingual and, from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese and two Indian dialects simultaneously, and later learned French at school.

She had been working in the corporate field for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April of 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience in early 2006 has tremendously changed her perspective on life. Her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm. She works on the premise that our inner world (consciousness) is our primary reality, and if our internal state is healthy and strong, then our external world will align itself and fall into place as a result.

She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life’s most adverse situations, as she is the living proof of this possibility.

Awakening Shakti The Transformative Power of the Goddesses of Yoga ~ Sally Kempton

Awakening Shakti – Sally Kempton

How do you live a life of spiritual awakening as well as outer abundance, inner freedom as well as deep intimacy? How do you serve the world selflessly, yet passionately celebrate your life?

The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti—the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga—these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. When you know these powers for what they are, they heighten your capacity to open spiritually, love more deeply and fearlessly, create with greater mastery, and move through the world with skill and delight. In Awakening Shakti, you will learn how to recognize and invite:

Kali, bringer of strength, fierce love, and untamed freedom

Lakshmi, who confers prosperity and beauty

Saraswati, for clarity of communication and intuition

Radha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longing

Bhuvaneshvari, who creates the space for sacred transformation

Parvati, to awaken creativity and the capacity to love

With a wealth of meditations, visualizations, mantras, teachings, and beautifully told stories, Awakening Shakti provides a practical guide for activating the currents of the divine feminine in every aspect of your life.

Sally Kempton has been studying and teaching the wisdom of yoga for 40 years. A highly regarded teacher of meditation and spiritual philosophy, she writes the popular Yoga Journal column “Wisdom.” Known for her gift of making yogic wisdom relevant to daily life and for transmitting deep states of meditation, she teaches retreats and teleclasses internationally.

The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom for the Modern World by don Miguel Ruiz Jr., don Miguel Ruiz (Foreword by)

This is a book that picks up where The Four Agreements View Here left off. Building on the principles found in his father’s bestselling book, Ruiz, Jr. explores the ways in which we attach ourselves inappropriately to beliefs and the world.

Ruiz explores the five levels of attachment that cause suffering in our lives. The levels are:

Level One, The Authentic Self:

We are living beings regardless of our knowledge, which exists only because we exist. The Authentic Self is a name given to that living being that is the full potential of life. It is the name that describes the force that not only animates our body, but also gives life to our mind and our soul. The Authentic Self is always present, and it is only our attachment that keeps us from remembering this is who we really are.

Level Two, Preference:

We use knowledge as the tool by which we engage our preferences in life. At the second level of attachment, we move with the awareness of the Authentic Self and recognize our ability to invest ourselves in something the form of an attachment as we engage in the present moment. We are still able to let go of the attachment when the moment has passed. Seeing ourselves as a reflection of life in the Dream of the Planet, we attach ourselves with ease, and detachment is simply recognizing and letting go of that reflection.

Level Three, Identity:
We identify myself with our knowledge; we use it to see and understand the world. Identity is the grounding sense of self that allows us to have our place in the Dream of the Planet, giving us a point of reference by which we engage other people. But this identity is a mask that blurs our awareness of the Authentic Self, and attachment at this level means we identify ourselves with our knowledge and forget that it is a mask.

Level Four, Internalization:
Our identity, in the form of knowledge, gives us the rules and guidelines by which we live our lives. In the Toltec tradition, this is known as Domestication. This level of attachment to knowledge means our identity has become the model by which we accept ourselves. Our sense of self comes directly from our beliefs. Our will is subjugated by the need to fit in with our Personal Dream and the Dream of the Planet, and though our mask may not be in the form of our passion, we will wear whatever mask we think we need to be accepted.

Level Five, Fanaticism:
Our knowledge controls our every action. We hold beliefs as more important than human life. Fanaticism describes a rigid attachment to knowledge with an excessive intolerance of opposing views. Anything that contradicts or puts into question a fanatic’s beliefs is a direct threat—and they will defend the belief at any cost. Prejudice, intolerance, and violence are the instruments by which the belief is imposed onto the Dream of the Planet.

Ruiz says that most people in the world find themselves at levels three or four.
With the wisdom in this book, readers will learn how to stave off Fanaticism and move away from Identity Internalization to reside in Level One, our true Authentic Selves.

Accessible and practical, Ruiz’s exploration invites us to look at our own lives and see how an unhealthy level of attachment can keep us trapped in a psychological and spiritual fog. He then invites us to reclaim our true freedom by cultivating awareness, detaching, and discovering our true selves.

With Don Miguel Ruiz Jr.’s help, you will:

>Become aware of how you confuse what you know for who you are

>Gain awareness of how your attachments have created your reality

>Stop creating your identity based on the opinions and judgments of others around you

>Let go of the fear of what you are without your beliefs

>Take back your power

>Make new Agreements that are more in line with your true Authentic Self

Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit Nourishing the Soul When Lifes Just Too Much by Karen Horneffer-Ginter

It seems that everyone is busy these days. The world is full of information, full of obligations, full of friends and family, full of everything-except fulfillment. Rushing has become a national epidemic. And even if you’re rushing between good things-if you have a happy family and a good job, if you have great friends and wonderful colleagues-you can feel drained and exhausted.

In Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit, psychologist Karen Horneffer-Ginter reaches out to readers who are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of life. In this beautifully written book, she helps readers understand that it is this volume, this busyness, that creates a disconnect between their outer lives and inner selves. This separation causes our souls to wilt, and prevents us from experiencing joy and hearing our own wisdom about what needs to happen in our lives.

With an elegant narrative voice and the ability to inspire both laughter and compassion, Horneffer-Ginter takes readers on a journey to help them live more fully by exploring six shifts-learning to pause, turn within, fill up, come back to life, remember lightness, and embrace difficulty. Through a weave of personal stories, client experiences, and practical exercises, readers will learn to find balance in the swirl of daily life while reconnecting with what matters most.

Karen Horneffer-Ginter has been practicing psychology and teaching yoga and contemplative practices for over 16 years. She has also taught graduate students and health care professionals, along with directing a university-based holistic health care program, and co-founding the Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The aim of Karen’s work is to reconnect people with the wisdom of their inner-life by reclaiming what gets lost amidst the busyness of day-to-day life: qualities such as stillness, self-care, creativity, joy, humor, gratitude, and compassion. Her intention is to support people in finding a sense of balance and sacredness in their lives.

Science and the Afterlife Experience: Evidence for the Immortality of Consciousness ~ Chris Carter

Reveals the evidence of life beyond death

• Examines 125 years of scientific research into reincarnation, apparitions, and communication with the dead showing these phenomena are real

• Reveals the existence of higher planes of consciousness where the souls of the dead can choose to advance or manifest once again on Earth

• Explains how these findings have been ignored and denied because they are incompatible with materialist doctrines

In this book, Chris Carter shows that evidence of life beyond death exists and has been around for millennia, predating any organized religion. Focusing on three key phenomena–reincarnation, apparitions, and communications from the dead–Carter reveals 125 years of documented scientific studies by independent researchers and the British and American Societies for Psychical Research that rule out hoaxes, fraud, and hallucinations and prove these afterlife phenomena are real.

The author examines historic and modern accounts of detailed past-life memories, visits from the deceased, and communications with the dead via medium and automatic writing as well as the scientific methods used to confirm these experiences. He explains how these findings on the afterlife have been ignored and denied because they are incompatible with the prevailing doctrine of materialism. Sharing messages from the dead themselves describing the afterlife, Carter reveals how consciousness exists outside the parameters of biological evolution and emerges through the medium of the brain to use the physical world as a springboard for growth. After death, souls can advance to higher planes of consciousness or manifest once again on Earth. Carter’s rigorous argument proves–beyond any reasonable doubt–not only that consciousness survives death and continues in the afterlife, but that it precedes birth as well.

Chris Carter was educated at Oxford University in Economics and Philosophy. He is the author of three highly acclaimed books that explore controversial areas of science and philosophy, and currently teaches internationally. View here and Here for Chris Carter’s previous books.

The Awareness Principle: A Radical New Philosophy Of Life, Science And Religion – Peter Wilberg (Author)

Awareness of the different elements of our conscious action and experience frees us from restricting attachments to them – from confining identification with anything we think, feel or do. This ‘Awareness Principle’ is both a liberatory life principle and a life practice of a sort long recognised in yogic philosophy. As well as being healing and freeing The Awareness Principle is also a new foundational principle for the sciences and religion – offering the sole possible philosophical basis for both a new Theology and a truly scientific ‘Theory of Everything’. For the most fundamental scientific fact is not the objective existence of a manifest universe but awareness of that universe.

Peter Wilberg’s writings on ‘The Awareness Principle’ reaffirm and re-articulate in a new and clear way a centuries-old understanding of Hindu tantric philosophy – namely that the ‘1st Principle’ of the universe is not matter or energy but the innate potentials and power (Shakti) of pure awareness (Shiva).
BRIEF BIOGRAPHY Acharya Peter Wilberg is an Indian spiritual teacher reborn in North-West London in 1952 of German and German-Jewish parentage. Peter Wilberg’s past-life and inter-life spiritual knowledge, psychic abilities and profound intellect came to expression in his early childhood – during which he already cultivated and practiced advanced yogic powers or ‘Siddhis’. When only eight years old he spontaneously wrote an essay for his Religious Education class which expressed the essence of the Hindu- Tantric philosophy of time (Kaala), creative vibration (Spanda), and ‘energy’ (Shakti). Whilst still in primary school he practiced the yoga of dreaming – the ability to visualise and enter a dream directly from the waking state with his dream body – and retain full awareness within the dream. He also used daily classical music listening to cultivate a yoga of ‘inner sound’ and ‘feeling tone’. This involved using his face and eyes as an instrument by which to express, embody and amplify the inner music of the soul – its tonal qualities of feeling. Later he assiduously cultivated a new ‘yoga of the face’ with which, simply by meditating the ‘inner sound’ of their look and facial expression, he could directly sense the inner feeling tones or ‘soul’ of another person within his own body.

Acharya Peter Wilberg first practiced the yoga of ‘out-of-body’ travel as an adolescent. Yet in early adulthood, whilst studying philosophy at Oxford’s Magdalen College, he was a frequent invisible flyer over its quads. Whilst studying philosophy Acharya Peter Wilberg gave deep attention to Eastern as well as Western thought. His subsequent MA dissertation in Humanistic Psychology was an expression of his experience of the yoga of dreaming – being based on experiential research into inter-personal dimensions of ‘lucid dreaming’. In his own lucid dreams he encountered numerous teachers and Gurus, travelled beyond our planetary system and experienced planes of awareness beyond the dream state.

This phase of his work culminated in a single dream which led him beyond the dream state itself into a deeper layer of awareness and a profound trans-personal experience of his own ‘great soul’ or ‘Mahatma’. .From within it he was wordlessly imbued with its higher knowing or ‘Vijnana’, as well as being and instructed with his spiritual life-mission – that of re-conceptualising that knowing in a new, more refined ways. Over subsequent decades he therefore continued to practice and seek new ways of articulating his many self-discovered Yogas, in particular that of using his face and eyes to mirror the looks of others and sense their souls – feeling their own soul in his body and his own soul in theirs. As a result, in 1975 he had the first experience of what was to become the new mode of ‘Tantric Pair Meditation’ that he describes in his essays and books – a form of tantric union or ‘Maithuna’ that he has now practiced for over 30 years. Through it, he cultivated his most important ‘Siddhi’ – the capacity, through his inner gaze and inner touch, to not only embody different qualities and faces of the Divine-Universal Awareness, but also to channel them directly into the body of another – the mark of a teacher with powers of initiation.

It was out of this rich history of continuous yogic practice and aware inner experiencing that Acharya Peter Wilberg was able to fulfil his life-mission and to formulate, over many decades, the original Principles and Practices of Awareness which make up ‘The New Yoga’. In doing so, he has not only become the preceptor or Acharya of a new spiritual teaching. He has also become an empowered and initiatory ‘Guru’ (‘Siddha Guru’ or ‘Diksha Guru’) in the most traditional sense – capable not only of embodying Divine potentials and powers of awareness (‘Siddhis’) but also awakening them in others – thus bestowing initiation (‘Diksha’).

Together with his lifelong studies of both Indian and European philosophies, this extraordinary experiential history enabled Acharya Peter Wilberg to evolve, over several decades, the metaphysical principles and meditational practices which together make up what he calls ‘The New Yoga’ – a yoga of pure awareness (Shiva) and its innate potentials and powers of manifestation (Shakti).

Having a lifetime’s study of profound European thinkers and philosophies behind it, The New Yoga is – in the most literal sense – a European ‘reincarnation’ of the sublime tradition of tantric teachings known collectively as ‘Kashmir Shaivism’. For in the same spirit as its great 10th century adept and teacher – Acharya Abhinavagupta – Acharya Peter Wilberg has again, after a gap of ten centuries, further clarified and refined the principles and practices of this tradition. The New Yoga makes them profoundly relevant to today’s world – capable of being applied directly in everyday life and relationships as well as to numerous modern fields of knowledge. That is why, in addition to his many essays and books on The New Yoga, Acharya Peter Wilberg has also contributed several articles to journals of philosophical psychology, written countless essays and published a variety of books on themes ranging from science and religion to medicine and psychiatry, politics and economics, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy

Key Questions:

Question: How do you know that anything at all ‘is’ or exists?
Answer: Only through an awareness of it.

Question: How do you even know that you exist or ‘are’?
Answer: Only through an awareness of being.

Question: If this is so, how can that awareness be regarded as ‘yours’ – or as the property of any person, being or thing that we only know of through that awareness?

Answer: It cannot.

‘The Awareness Principle’ is the principle that awareness cannot – in principle – be explained by or reduced to the property or product of anything of which IT is aware – any self or world, body or being, even a Supreme Being or ‘Being’ as such.

On the contrary, every being is an individualised portion, expression and embodiment of a beginningless and boundless Awareness – a Universal Awareness Field that is beyond explanation.
The Awareness Principle is therefore the recognition that awareness alone is, in principle, the sole possible reality underlying and constituting all things, all beings and all worlds.

For again, its basic ‘principle’ is that awareness cannot – in principle – be explained by or reduced to the property or product of any thing or phenomenon, being or body, self or world, that we are aware of.

The Awareness Principle is thus also all of the following:

· The sole possible ‘Theory of Everything’.

· A Unified Field Theory of reality which recognises all things as the expression of a Universal Awareness Field.

· The foundation of a comprehensive set of Practices of Awareness with the power to transform our lives and our world through the cultivation of Unified Field Awareness.

· A radical re-interpretation of the fundamental nature of ‘God’ and ‘Spirit’, ‘Matter’ and ‘Energy’, ‘Space’ and ‘Time’, ‘Creation’ and ‘Evolution’, ‘Being’ and ‘Consciousness’, ‘Soul’ and ‘Body’, ‘Life’ and ‘Death’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Enlightenment’.

· The Awareness Principle
transcends ‘science’ as we know it today, because it recognises that the most basic scientific ‘fact’ or ‘reality’ of all is not the ‘objective’ existence of a universe of matter and energy but a subjective awareness of such a universe.

· The Awareness Principle
transcends ‘psychology’ as we know it today, because it recognises that awareness is universal and all-pervasive in character – not a purely personal and privately owned ‘soul’ or ‘psyche’ that is bounded by our bodies or a mere product of our brains.

· The Awareness Principle
transcends ‘religion’ as we know it today, because it recognises that ‘God’ is not a ‘supreme being’ that simply happens to have or ‘possess’ awareness but rather than God is awareness – a universal awareness field of which all individual beings or ‘souls’ are a unique portion and personification, a unique expression and embodiment.

Bob Cowart

It all started in 1953. OK, let’s skip to 1971. That’s when I graduated from high school in Upper Merion, Pennsylvania (this is, like, suburban Philadelphia). I was hacking pretty heavily with sound equipment, playing in a bunch on rock bands (bass guitar. We did stuff like Chicago Transit uthority, Santana, Beatles, James Brown). I was also taking classical piano lessons, and had a light-show company (Audio-Sonic Light and Sound) with a couple of friends. Lots of psychedelic effects (all external). So of course, then I attended Temple University with a concentration in psychology. Must have been trying to figure out what I got out of those strobe lights.

TM and stuff… During that time, I checked out various forms of meditation and self development, such as Silva Mind Control, hypnosis, and TM. I developed an interest in the physiological effects of relaxation and meditation techniques, and how these effects might be used to improve physical health and psychological wellbeing.

Upon graduating, instead of getting an advanced degree in psych, I headed to France to be trained as a teacher of Transcendental Meditation, since I found that way more useful than what Western psycholigical disciplines Nine months of training later, I was teaching TM in New York City. A few months later, I decided the weather in NY was the pits, and I so moved on to Chicago (where the weather was also the pits), then finally landed up in the San Francisco Bay Area (Berkeley to be precise). Besides being co-chair of the TM Center in Berkeley, in 1978 I taught TM to high-security inmates in San Quentin prison, a program funded by the California State Department of Corrections. This was a very interesting experience. Also frightening. I do not recommend doing anything that will wind you up in jail.

The First Muslim: The Story of Muhammad by Lesley Hazleton

The extraordinary life of the man who founded Islam, and the world he inhabited—and remade.

Muhammad’s was a life of almost unparalleled historical importance; yet for all the iconic power of his name, the intensely dramatic story of the prophet of Islam is not well known. In The First Muslim, Lesley Hazleton brings him vibrantly to life. Drawing on early eyewitness sources and on history, politics, religion, and psychology, she renders him as a man in full, in all his complexity and vitality.
Hazleton’s account follows the arc of Muhammad’s rise from powerlessness to power, from anonymity to renown, from insignificance to lasting significance. How did a child shunted to the margins end up revolutionizing his world? How did a merchant come to challenge the established order with a new vision of social justice? How did the pariah hounded out of Mecca turn exile into a new and victorious beginning? How did the outsider become the ultimate insider?
Impeccably researched and thrillingly readable, Hazleton’s narrative creates vivid insight into a man navigating between idealism and pragmatism, faith and politics, nonviolence and violence, rejection and acclaim. The First Muslim illuminates not only an immensely significant figure but his lastingly relevant legacy.

Lesley Hazleton reported on the Middle East from Jerusalem for more than a dozen years, and has written for Time, The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, and Harper’s, among other publications. Her last book, After the Prophet, was a finalist for the PEN-USA book Award. Hazleton lives in Seattle.
