Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds – Part 3 – The Serpent and the Lotus


The primordial spiral is the manifested world, while Akasha is the unmanifested, or emptiness itself. All of reality is an interplay between these two things; Yang and Yin, or consciousness and matter. The spiral has often been represented by the snake, the downward current, while the bird or blooming lotus flower has represented the upward current or transcendence.

The ancient traditions taught that a human being can become a bridge extending from the outer to the inner, from gross to subtle, from the lower chakras to the higher chakras. To balance the inner and the outer is what the Buddha called the middle way, or what Aristotle called the Golden Mean. You can be that bridge.

The full awakening of human consciousness and energy is the birthright of every individual on the planet. In today’s society we have lost the balance between the inner and the outer. We are so distracted by the outer world of form, thoughts and ideas, that we no longer take time to connect to our inner worlds, the kingdom of heaven that is within.

Supernormal: Science, Yoga, and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities ~ Dean Radin

Can yoga and meditation unleash our inherent supernormal mental powers, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition? Is it really possible to perceive another person’s thoughts and intentions? Influence objects with our minds? Envision future events? And is it possible that some of the superpowers described in ancient legends, science fiction, and comic books are actually real, and patiently waiting for us behind the scenes? Are we now poised for an evolutionary trigger to pull the switch and release our full potentials?

Dean Radin, Director of Research at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, presents persuasive new experimental evidence for the existence of such phenomena. He takes us on a thrilling scientific journey and challenges outdated assumptions that these abilities are mere superstition. Focusing on Patanjali’s mysterious Yoga Sutras — 2,000 year-old meditation practices believed to release our extraordinary powers — Radin offers powerful evidence confirming that sometimes fact is much stranger, spookier, and more wonderful than the wildest fiction.

Dean Radin, PhD, is the author of Entangled Minds and The Conscious Universe. For more than two decades he has been engaged in research on the frontiers of consciousness. He has held appointments at Princeton University and several Silicon Valley think tanks, including Interval Research Corporation and SRI International, where he worked on a classified program investigating psychic phenomena for the US government. Dr. Radin is currently Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

Understanding Islam and Christianity Beliefs That Separate Us and How to Talk About Them ~ Josh McDowell & Jim Walker

Release Date: October 2013

For years, international apologist Josh McDowell has been alert to the challenge of Islam—and how Muslims’ objections to Christianity can raise deep doubts in believers’ minds. His recent on-the-ground research with Muslims in the Middle East has crystallized into this practical resource focusing on Jesus and the gospel. Aided by Islam expert Jim Walker, McDowell lays out the evidence on the crucial issues:

  • What kind of prophet was Jesus? Was he the Messiah?
  • “Son of God”? “Son of Man”? What’s that about?
  • How are God and Jesus related? Can they both be God?
  • The gospel—how could God dishonor his Son by letting him die horribly? What good did his death do?
  • Aren’t the Bible’s accounts of Jesus corrupt?

With all this, as well as backgrounder appendixes on the basics, believers will have authoritative evidence from Scripture and history to intelligently deal with Muslims’ questions about and challenges to Christianity.

Josh McDowell has been reaching the spiritually skeptical for more than five decades. Since beginning ministry in 1961, Josh has delivered more than 24,000 talks to over 10 million young people in 118 countries. He is the author or coauthor of 130 books, with over 51 million copies distributed worldwide, including Straight Talk with Your Kids About Sex, Experience Your Bible, Evidence for the Historical Jesus, More Than a Carpenter (over 15 million copies printed in 85 languages), and The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, recognized by World magazine as one of the twentieth century’s top 40 books. Josh continues to travel throughout the United States and countries around the world, helping young people and adults strengthen their faith and understanding of Scripture. Josh will tell you that his family is his ministry. He and his wife, Dottie, have been married for over 40 years and have four children and numerous grandchildren.

Jim Walker has been involved in Islamic ministry and research for over 20 years. He has led and taught numerous seminars for Christians interested in learning about Muslims’ faith.

The 10 Keys to Total Freedom: Gary M. Douglas & Dr. Dain Heer

These are the Ten Keys to Total Freedom. They are a way of living that will help you expand your capacity for consciousness so that you can have greater awareness about yourself, your life, this reality and beyond. With greater awareness you can begin creating the life you’ve always known was possible but haven’t yet achieved. If you will actually do and be these things, you will get free in every aspect of your life.

People have used these Ten Keys to get over depression, lack of money, relationship issues, body problems and many other situations that have seemed insurmountable. Gary Douglas & Dr. Dain Heer explored the Ten Keys to Total Freedom in detail on a series of telecalls and conversations over a period of ten weeks with Access Consciousness® Facilitators and other people from all over the world.

This book is based on these main principles of Access Consciousness® that have changed, and continue to improve, people’s lives worldwide.

Gary Douglas is the Founder of Access Consciousness® which has now grown to 49 countries with over 2000 facilitators worldwide.

Access Consciousness® started 25 years ago and Gary has developed techniques using a simple set of tools that allow people to create dynamic changes in every area of their life using questioning and body awareness.

The tools are used globally to transform lives in private practices and as well in conjunction with addiction recovery, weight loss, business and money, animal health and in many holistic health modalities such as acupuncture and chiropractic care.

Prior to creating Access Consciousness® Gary Douglas was a successful realtor in Santa Barbara, California and also completed a psychology degree. Although he attained material wealth and was regarded as ‘successful’, his life began to lack meaning and so he began his search to find a new way forward- one that would create change in the world and in people’s lives.

Douglas has written several books on the subjects of money, relationships, magic and animals. In 2010 his book “The Place” became a Barnes and Noble bestseller. He describes the inspiration behind the writing, “I wanted to explore the possibilities for how life could be. To allow people to know there actually is no necessity to live with the aging, insanity, stupidity, intrigue, violence, craziness, trauma and drama we live with, as though we have no choice. ‘The Place’ is about people knowing that all things are possible. Choice is the source of creation. What if our choices can be changed in an instant? What if we could make choice more real than the decisions and stuck points we buy as real?”

His latest book, “The Ten Keys To Total Freedom”, co-authored with Dr. Dain Heer, was published in 2013.

Born in the Midwest and raised in San Diego, California, Douglas now lives in Santa Barbara. He has a psychology degree and has a wide range of business interests, including the Antique Guild in Brisbane, Australia and breeding Costarricense De Paso horses.

A vibrant 70-year-old grandfather (who is almost ‘ageless’) with a very different view on life, Gary works twelve-hour days, rides spirited stallions for a hobby and believes we are here to express our uniqueness and experience the ease and joy of living. He continues to inspire others, teaching across the world and making a massive contribution to the planet. He openly proclaims that for him, “life is just beginning”.

Gary M. Douglas, Founder of Access Consciousness™ and Dr. Dain Heer, Co-Creator of Access Consciousness, discuss Change and Choice and how it can contribute to the life you’ve always desired.

Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds – Part 2 – The Spiral

The Pythagorian philosopher Plato hinted enigmatically that there was a golden key that unified all of the mysteries of the universe. The golden key is the intelligence of the logos, the source of the primordial om. One could say that it is the mind of God. The source of this divine symmetry is the greatest mystery of our existence. Many of history’s monumental thinkers such as Pythagoras, Keppler, Leonardo da Vinci, Tesla and Einstein have come to the threshold the mystery. Every scientist who looks deeply into the universe and every mystic who looks deeply within the self, eventually comes face to face with the same thing: The Primordial Spiral.

Bird Medicine: The Sacred Power of Bird Shamanism by Evan T. Pritchard

Explores the living spiritual tradition surrounding birds in Native American culture

• Pairs scholarly research with more than 200 firsthand accounts of bird signs from traditional Native Americans and their descendants

• Examines the legends, wisdom, and powers of the birds known as the gatekeepers of the four directions—Eagle, Hawk, Crow, and Owl

• Provides many examples of bird sign interpretations and human-bird communication that can be applied in your own encounters with birds

Birds are our strongest allies in the natural world. Revered in Native American spirituality and shamanic traditions around the world, birds are known as teachers, guardians, role models, counselors, healers, clowns, peacemakers, and meteorologists. They carry messages and warnings from loved ones and the spirit world, report deaths and injuries, and channel divine intelligence to answer our questions. Some of their “signs” are so subtle that one could discount them as subjective, but others are dramatic enough to strain even a skeptic’s definition of coincidence.

Pairing scholarly research with more than 200 firsthand accounts of bird encounters from traditional Native Americans and their descendants, Evan Pritchard explores the living spiritual tradition surrounding birds in Native American culture. He examines in depth the birds known as the gatekeepers of the four directions–Eagle in the North, Hawk in the East, Crow in the South, and Owl in the West–including their roles in legends and the use of their feathers in shamanic rituals. He reveals how the eagle can be a direct messenger of the Creator, why crows gather in “Crow Councils,” and how shamans have the ability to travel inside of birds, even after death. Expanding his study to the wisdom and gifts of birds beyond the four gatekeepers, such as hummingbirds, seagulls, and the mythical thunderbird, he provides numerous examples of everyday bird sign interpretations that can be applied in your own encounters with birds as well as ways we can help protect birds and encourage them to communicate with us.

Evan T. Pritchard, a descendant of the Mi’kmaq people, has taught Native American studies at Pace University, Vassar College, and Marist College and is the director of the Center for Algonquin Culture. Steeped in bird lore by his Mi’kmaq great aunt Helen Perley, he is the author of several books, including Native New Yorkers and No Word for Time. A regular on radio shows such as NPR’s Fresh Air and on the History Channel, he lives in the Hudson Valley of New York.
