Mystical Thinking: Kundalini

The Shadow/unconscious and the Divine are the very same thing.  How else could we share dreams?  “Evil” is any mental/physiospiritual process or state that boots Ultimate Interconnectedness completely out of our sphere of awareness.  Compassion is a superpower.  It is when we sleep soundly in the dreamland unicorn picture show (thank you, Rick Hanson) of transiently arising ego functions – in the world of the self – that we do damage. 

Kundalini awakening is the mystical experience is Enlightening is direct connection with the Divine.  It is an evolutionary or developmental process of physiospiritual and neurological rebirth.  It is not to be "sought after" necessarily; as a developmental process, like puberty, it has prerequisites.  If there are the elements of faith, ever-deepening awareness, grounding in Nature and in community, and surrender to guidance by Spirit, it may be awakened safely.  The amount of pain and suffering experienced in such an Awakening is proportional to the amount of resistance to Spirit.  “…but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”  (Luke 3:17)  That which is anti-Relationship will either be cast off, or will cause further pain. 

The beauty of “this story” is that we, as humans, get to make the choice to come back to the Garden, to surrender to the deeper reality.  Hell is isolation from this deeper reality, my fellows.
