Who thinks like a crystal? Essentially, no one. We think in a very limited linear manner: step one leads to step two to step three, etc. Crystals do not think that way. A ‘thought’ within a crystal radiates out in all directions simultaneously and continues to branch out in all directions from every point that the impulse of the thought touches. The linear mind of traditional thought is lost in the dust by such logic. To traditional thinking, the logic in crystals makes no sense.
The logic of the underlying basis of all existence is crystalline in nature. It is no coincidence that the mathematics used to describe the structure of the unified field is the same sort of mathematics (abstract algebra) used to describe the structure of crystals. In fact, the math of the unified field is a very sophisticated form of abstract algebra.
So what does all this matter to YOU? The interconnections that determine the quality of your life are fundamentally dependent upon a logic that the human mind cannot even follow… a logic that you, in fact, have been taught to reject. Vedic Knowledge is structured in a crystalline manner. From the limited perspective of linear thinking, it often makes no sense. The notion of mapping gives us the best feel for it. For example, the medical symbol of snakes around a staff maps on to the energy that moves up the spine (kundalini), maps to Kartikeya, maps to snakes in the forest. The shape of leaves, the shape of the human brain, the shape of Lord Ganesha’s head all map on to one another. To live life in harmony with nature is to live life in harmony with the infinite number of such abstract mappings that permeate your daily life.
The Vedic Shastras offer many principles to assist you in living in harmony with nature. They speak of the different types of human nervous systems (castes). They speak of eclipses, auspicious days, jyotish, kalpa, on and on. Because essentially all of it makes no sense to the limitations of linear thought, it is not understood. Because is it not understood, it is usually rejected. Or even worse, it is twisted into a set of pitiful and sometimes even reprehensible notions or superstitions. For example, the Shiva Puranas call Shiva the greatest God. The Vishnu Puranas attribute that position to Vishnu. The limitation of linear thought, seeing that as an irreconcilable contradiction, compels people to then reject Vedic knowledge as illogical. Or the caste system becomes a means of degrading some people while feeding the ego of others. What a loss!
So what do you do about all of this? How do you proceed with your life? What’s next? Fortunately, there is a very simple solution: proper meditation… and I emphasize PROPER. Proper meditation evolves you. As you evolve, you spontaneously live more and more in harmony with nature… with Mother Nature and with your own TRUE nature. There are many forms of meditation… most gain popularity because they satisfy the limited thinking of linear thought. They are actually unnatural… attempts to control the mind, program the mind, channel the behavior, etc. This is all wrong. In your essence, you are one with the Unified Field, one with God. You are crystalline in your nature. Proper meditation enables you to rest into your true nature. I encourage you to learn and practice the Surya Ram Meditation. Start with the Surya Meditation, which you can learn free on this website.
The next thing to do is cultivate sufficient humility so you can take a step back and learn. Start with the fundamental points I offer. They are given in these blogs and will soon be offered on the home page in a very accessible and concise form.
Finally and MOST importantly, note that I am not asking you to abandon yourself. In fact it is quite the opposite. Stay true to your SELF. Culture yourself. Free yourself from the chains of limited thinking that have indoctrinated you. It is very simple. To thine own self be true.
To live better, you must look deeper.
