The Paradox of Subtlety—When Kundalini Comes Like “A Thief in the Night” Part I

DSCF0583

During the fleeting moments of “no-thought,” when the experience of all sensations/vibrations felt in the moment resolves in the mind to the primal “Hum” of the body, a visceral connection is made with the awakening Divine Current, the Life Force….Kundalini!

This is not necessarily a “Big Bang,” “Big Wow!” kind of experience. At least not at first. It may come as a gentle whisper, a quiet rumbling, like a beautiful song being played far off in the distance.

It is very clear, however, that in this experience, you have connected with and created a very different relationship and perspective with your Life Force and sense of Self. There can also be a major shift in your spiritual world view. You will see your belief system in a different light…and you may very well see some “systems” fall away from your life.

For me, as profoundly helpful and inspiring my spiritual beliefs and practices were to me in the beginning and for many years thereafter, at a certain point they began to have less meaning for me. As my perspective and relationship with my body, mind and life force began shifting to one that was more and more on a level of subtle sensations, the philosophies, stories, forms and practices of my spiritual world view began to fall away. My relationship/attunement with Spirit seemed to move towards a very different “resonance.”

The experience may come like “a thief in the night,” so very gently, unobtrusively…and yet the “reverberations” and “echoes” of this subtle vibration can have profound impact in your life!

It is such a paradox that a vibration (Kundalini) so subtle can “shake” things up to such a degree! To me it seemed like every little dark nook and cranny of my life had to surface and “see-the-light-of-day” so to speak.

Looking back at my years of sickness and dealing with so many of my previously unseen shadows, it seems fairly apparent to me now that my body, mind and psyche were not in sync with the subtle, yet fast-moving (like quicksilver), primal “hum” of the awakening Kundalini.

The process seems to go on and on…and on. Sometimes it feels like living with a giant motor that, through resonance, is bringing the “slow” motor of my body/mind/psyche “up-to-speed.”

Connecting With the Bliss Resonance, Part VIII

Alchemy of Bliss

Alchemy of Bliss

Fleeting moments of “no-thought” during periods of meditation are very different from “absent-mindedness.” When deeply “tuned” into the very delicate sensations moving through the body, the mind naturally slows down as the feeling state comes to the fore.

In absent-mindedness there is no stable or grounded center of conscious awareness. The consciousness remains disconnected from the vibration of “center,” disconnected from the Bliss Resonance. An absent mind is easily caught in the “currents” of habitual patterns of thinking and acting.

Now, when feeling deeply into fine sensations they seem to have a way of “gripping” or “squeezing” the mind into focus…into one-pointedness! The mind/awareness becomes rooted to the sensation of “Center,” the experience of “Being.” Such moments may be accompanied by “flashes” of “no-thought” and intimations of the Bliss Resonance.

The “Bliss Resonance,” as best as I can describe it, is a deeply subtle sensation of the overall vibration of the body that imparts an energetic uplift of body/mind/psyche. Also, because the sensation is innately blissful, the mind is automatically drawn inwards, as though caught or embraced by a “squeezing” or “contorting” energy, as felt in the spine and rest of the body.

The “uplift” of vibration also has an affect of lifting and straightening the spine, lifting the eyes, automatically and spontaneously. The Bliss Resonance is like a live wire in the body that “electrifies” the system!
