when you start to wake up

    I hope it happens in a staggered out way. I'd really hate to see a mass awakening. that would be chaos. Some of you will become violent due to not being able to control your lower chakras and emotions.

    Many if not most will think they are crazy. It could be a real nightmare if too many awaken all at once.

    Although the end result will be a better society, in the process it could be really ugly. i feel sorry for all of us.

      Let's assume that what you say is true. You say Some of you will become violent due to not being able to control your lower chakras and emotions.

      How do you know you won't be included in those who turn to violence?

        I'm referring to those who are prone to violence in the first place will have trouble with it. Normal people will have problems but it will be more internal.

                  There are many warnings against it in the Bible.

                  I Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons...

                  II Cor 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

                  Lev 20:6  If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.

                  Col 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits[a] of the world, and not according to Christ.

                  I Sam 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has also rejected you from being king.”

          I see.

          In that case, I don't think the 'awakening' will affect too many people because very few, percentage-wise, practice kundalini.

            Kundalini yoga is unnecesary. God wakes you up. You can't do it yourself.

      Thomas Paine successfully inspired and guided many freethinkers to 'awake' in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when he published, "The Age of Reason".

        Once you combine and balance your reason and intuition, you will have a glimpse of what it is to be awake.

          Chicken Little also thought he was making society better or safer by warning of the impending threat that was surely headed our way.  But, alas, he was just woefully misguided, and extremely narrow as he jumped to a premature and illogical conclusion.

          Then, again, you could be onto something.  But without any evidence of, whatever it is you are advocating, it is difficult to see your claim as credible.

    The way I see it is, if you listen to christian preachers and new age, etc, there all speaking the same language. I listen to them preach and find it quite weird a preacher just ads the scripture, but without the scripture you are going to hell. On the other hand, maybe we're all going to hell every day because we need to argue over religion and philosophy. While consciousness is in psychology text books just in a new vocabulary in the spiritual world, and philosophy. We just change the words and say if you don't agree you're going to hell. I've read hundreds of christian books, and weird how what the spiritual people say about stuff versus Christian is the same of course. Studying it all I believe some times we liked to believe the Christian's are following the right path. Hmm....what `i got out of all of it, is the same message. Walk in love and peace. Well I agree people are getting healthier and smarter, which they are self aware, spiritually aware, emotionally aware, and this generation is pushing things forward. This is what consciousness is being aware of deceptions, lies, manipulation, control, fortunately we believe what reality we choose too.

      All interesting points. I would agree that we choose what reality we choose to, but I think it's important that we know there is a basic truth and we have to seek that out. You will choose which path you want to take, and I will choose as well, but we must acknowledge that whatever absolute truth is, we should seek that.

        There are no absolute religious truths that have ever stood up to reality. There are facts and evidence about the world around us, which of course mean nothing to the believer who chooses to deny or reject them in their pointless quest for an illusive absolute, but it is these facts and evidence that are much closer to truth than anything religions have provided.

            I understand that you believe that, when an 8-year-old girl is raped, it's her fault and the village must crush her skull with boulders until she dies.

            Because, after all, that's what the Bible teaches. And you believe the Bible is good and holy.

                  No, but instead of being able to communicate with intelligent individuals about ideas that we share whether they are believers or not, I am instead constantly having to endure comments designed only to cause argument. Im sure old testament law has been explained to you dozens of times, but you wont receive any kind of explanation. I know b/c I've tried to have conversations with you before. Instead of the discussion of ideas and possibilities, you simply want to attack anything you don't understand, and it's not like you're willing to open your mind up... not even to the possibility of God, but to the possibility that there are indeed explanations for things you don't understand. I'm through with those kinds of conversations. They are dead ends. They are not enlightening, engaging, or beneficial.... they are instead tedious, ugly and worthless. I do indeed wish you well, I simply wont be goaded anymore to feed your need to spew hate speech towards a God you say you don't believe in anyway.

                    That sure is a roundabout way of saying, "Yes, I am upset. I and my kin don't want people to know about those laws because they might recognize that our religion is pure evil."

                    lol That couldn't be further from the truth.



                    You mean, just like you are not open to the possibilities of any other of the thousands of gods other than your own?



                    Like the hate speech your God spews at us? We would never stoop to that level.

I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries; a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you."

    Yoga actually helps us wake up. Waking up is a wonderful thing and not to be feared, ever.
