"The technical term for becoming free from our karmic limitation is called enlightenment. The path to enlightenment begins by watching the flow of your thoughts, softening the negative thought patterns, replacing them with positive thoughts, and finally manifesting expanded self-conscious awareness. In short, mysticism and Kriya Yoga are based on the spiritual psychology of the soul."
Resonance visualization: a CymaGlyph of the call of a humpback whale made using a CymaScope:
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα "wave") is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.
The apparatus employed can be simple, such as the old Chinese spouting bowl, or Chinese singing fountain, in which copper handles are rubbed and cause the copper bottom elements to vibrate. Other examples are a Chladni Plate or advanced such as the CymaScope, a laboratory instrument that makes visible the inherent geometries within sound and music.
And this, my friends, again, is why you should not miss an opportunity to be in the presence of a true spiritual teacher:
"So that is what Karmapa was about to me, not some powerful being sitting on a throne. Rather, there was enough space and expanded time within the embrace of the Karmapa's mental mandala and presence for me to realize myself. It was not the Karmapa I saw when I was with him, but myself. That is my definition of a spiritual being, one who helps us realize ourselves, not who they are."
"How do you explain that when you are in the presence of His Holiness, you have a different idea of yourself, of who you are, why you are here, etc.? I learned things about myself when I was in his presence that I never knew before, important things. The word is 'realization.' I realized things about myself that I had never realized before."
