At the age of 12, Martin Luther King became so depressed he tried committing suicide twice, by jumping out of his bedroom window.

from ‘Sayings of Paramahansa Yogananda’:

A man lamented that things were going badly for him.  “It must be my karma,” he said.  “I can’t seem to do anything.”

“Then you should make a greater effort,” the Master replied.  “Forget the past, trust more in God.  Our fate is not predestined by Him; nor is karma the sole factor, though our lives are influenced by our past activities.  If you are not happy with the way life is turning out, change the pattern.  I don’t like to hear men sigh and ascribe present failure to past-life errors; to do so is spiritual laziness. Get busy and weed the garden of your life.”

” I see all this potential, and I see squandering.  God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables—slaves with white collars.  Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.  We’re the middle children of history, man.  No purpose or place.  We have no Great War.  No Great Depression.  Our Great War’s a spiritual war . . . our Great Depression is our lives.  We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars.  But we won’t.  And we’re slowly learning that fact.  And we’re very, very pissed off.”
—Fight Club, 1999

First impressions…it’s a for-guys-action movie but… methinks that it is primarily a philosophical work.

Who else has stopped to question how they got to where they got in life by default?

You can be alive on your terms.

I was asked to talk about the epistemology I subscribed to when posting karma entries to this blog.  After I looked up epistemology…

e·pis·te·mol·o·gy  (-pst-ml-j)
n.
The branch of philosophy that studies the nature of knowledge, its presuppositions and foundations, and its extent and validity

….my reply is this…It takes a lot of time to philosophize about something….here is a chance to bust your old paradigms of how things work and bust your karma so that you can think with no limits…think illogically….logic only gets you to places that are known…
…what is the nature of wisdom?
Any comments?

How can the thoughts from one lifetime be remembered in the next? The soul remembers it and seeks to be born in an environment where these thoughts can be realized. The soul is just a collection of electrical energy. Through breath awareness, you can access to your soul; you can see and understand your future possibilities. Once you recognize the things that are waiting to happen, you can diffuse a lot of desires that are not life-supporting which you had created out of ignorance.

Karma is a Divine Law.  So is Grace.  The easiest way to access Grace is to feed a famished human being starving for food.  Grace can be seen in so many ways; the Grace of God, mercy, salvation, compassion or the promotion of goodness or well being.

Makaral, a temple about 100 miles away from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, has been identified as the vortex with the energy to remove karma very fast. Jnanasambanda, the child prodigy Saint/Siddha, who gave us the karma busting mantra ‘Thiru Neela Kantam’ proclaimed Makaral as the fastest karma-removing vortex.

Lord Shiva appeared here as a golden lizard, and the temple tower has statues showing that story. The image of the Shiva Linga is peculiar at this temple. Rather than rounded at the top, it is pointed upward like a lizard tail.

As the story goes a Chola King saw a giant golden colored lizard while hunting in the jungle. When the king hit the lizard with an arrow, blood from the wound splattered in the king’s eye and he went blind. The lizard was wounded but didn’t die. It sped away and dove into an ant-hill. All but its tail made it inside.

After some time the tail in the anthill became ‘Swayambulingam’ which means that it became a Shivalingam or representation of the Vedic Godhead. Swayambu- means that it was not carved or crafted by human hands but found in nature. It was Shiva himself.

The king prayed to have his eyesight restored. It was prescribed to him to perform a ritual anointing of the lingam with lime juice. He could feel the sacredness and power of the ritual and built a Shiva Temple around the Lingam.

Makaral is a derivative of Maha Karal which means biggest blemish. This is in reference to even the biggest of karmic misdeeds or stains, like attempting to kill Shiva, however unconsciously, can be removed here. The energy of this temple vortex has the power to eradicate your most stubborn negative karmas- financial, health and relationship.

The mantra is:
‘Makaral Sivayanama
(mah kah rel she vie yah nah mah)

It actually reverses karma. The 2 mantras together is a Super Karma Busting Team:
Thiru Neela Kantam + Makaral Sivayanama… repeat at least 108 times. If you only do one practice, chose this mantra to chant. You must remove karma before you can go on to do anything else like manifesting.

Some see Adam and Eve. Others see Rahu and Ketu the Karmic Carrier Nodes of the Moon in Vedic Astrology.
What do you see?

By your own doings you have created your own Hells, and by your own doings you can create your own Heavens.
