i have had a lot of free time lately

sort of wild in a way, it has been

i have had a lot of time to spend
on my own objectives and goals
time to travel and explore

a chance to answer some questions

i got a new GPS device, yay.
it helps a lot with the work
i am doing now studying landforms
and sacred geometry and the like...

(readers of my blogger account
have already heard all about my
GPS in far too much detail i am
sure...)

still looking at different types
of small portable USEFUL computers

i am not comfortable putting much
detailed information about what i am
up to or anything interesting or
personal about me on here anymore
but i am working on moving over
fully to blogger it is nice but
different so i am not sure if i
like it yet ... i am going to
sort of phase this account out

hmm, random news...
i traded 5 hours of basic computer
lessons for a VERY very VERY nice
pair of handmade boots which should
last me for quite a long time and
they are starting to break in and
get very comfortable... well worth
5 hours of lessons, i leared a fair
little bit about leather working and
got some good advice about local
woods for different types of fires

In a hotel tonight.

Caught an interesting Discovery science special
featuring someone I know quite a bit about. ;)

They offered a few bonus videos on the web
page and I liked this one a lot.

The 'smarty pants' quiz offered there is quite sad though. :p

More exploration tomorrow, rest now.

Sun Yoga: Lots more info and links @ http://www.anandaproject.org/sunyoga/

Umasankar-ji has discovered a method of absorbing energy directly from the sun, removing the need to eat, drink or sleep. This discovery has enabled him to travel through India without money or possessions, teaching people he meets along the way.

For two years prior to his journey Umasankar-ji stayed in Aurobindo assram in Pondicherry practicing Yoga and making many important discoveries. The most important of his discoveries was 'Sunyoga'. Very little is known about Sunyoga; it is briefly mentioned in some of the ancient Indian scriptures, but at the time of Umasankar-ji's discovery, only one other person (Hira Ratan Manek) was known to be practicing it in the modern world. Now, five years later, there are an estimated 10,000 people throughout India practicing Sunyoga, taught by Umasankar-ji on his travels.

Pondicherry is on the coast of south east India, looking over the Bay of Bengal. During his time at the ashram, Umasankar-ji spent every morning meditating on a rock looking out at the sun's reflection off the sea. His daily meditation upon the reflected sunlight gave him great pleasure, but at this time he did not consider it to be a form of Yoga. As he continued though, Umasankar-ji became aware that, through this method of meditation, he was somehow able to absorb powerful energies from the sun's rays. Umasankar-ji began to experiment by looking directly at the sun - initially as it was rising, then day by day he began to concentrate on it as it rose higher into the sky. He continued his meditation and after a couple of months the sun started to appear as a "clear hazy ring with soft blue sky inside". The harsh brightness disappeared and he felt it become increasingly soothing. As time went on, he started to see "seven bright colours radiating from the sun, slowly reaching closer to the ground". Three months after starting his concentration on the sun, Umasankar-ji felt these rays - the sun's cosmic energy - touch his body, creating within him an undescribable feeling of peace and calm.

Shortly after this experience, Umasankar-ji returned to the ashram to eat his usual food, but he found that he was unable to digest his simple plate of chapatis. His body rejected the food, yet he felt that he was fully nourished. During his three month period of concentrating on the sun, Umasankar-ji had developed a great interest in the way that trees and plants are able to receive energy directly from sunlight. His discoveries now made him believe that he had found a way of absorbing the sun's energy directly into his body, charging his body's cells with kinetic energy and therefore removing the need to eat food. So, as an experiment, Umasankar-ji stopped eating breakfast and continued concentrating on the sun. Six months later, he stopped eating his dinner, then six months after that, he stopped eating food at all. From the 17th August until the 7th December 1996, Umasankar-ji stopped eating and sleeping altogether. His body weight remained the same and he continued his daily routine working in the assram in a perfect state of health. Shortly after this period of his life, he began his journey through India teaching his discoveries to people he met along the way. During his travels, he has become a source of great interest to a number of scientific and medical research centres where he had his claims tested, examined and verified - at least up to the level of sophistication that modern scientific instruments are capable of reaching.

know that thy house is not here
this house wherein thou art born
is but a nest, an inn at which
thou has arrived, thy entry into
this world; here dost thou bud
and flower ...

thy true house is another

[mood |deviouson the prowl]

Though each organism represents a totality, it is at the same time part of a larger whole. Sometimes in nature the part carries with it a memory of the whole, an inner longing for a union with the whole. And so it can be with certain human beings. The journey to bridge the abyss that separates the past from the present is a quest to transform the present -- and thus the future. It is not political in nature, nor could it ever be. It is defined by eternal values & divine principles. Nothing about it is determined by the temporal. It is not a quest for everyone, but for the elect who feel it's calling in their very blood.

The self seeks union with the soul, & the soul yearns to regain it's lost/forgotten territories. The instinctual awareness that such things are possible has served as a fundamental driving force for certain men down the centuries -- nay, millenia. Poets, philosophers, & mystics have searched for the means to somehow achieve these goals, and awaken in man the ancestral memory that might serve as a nexus between man and the divine. The memory is there. The quest to awaken it follows a path that leads through fire & water, forrests of symbols, & initiatory ordeals not written of in books.

[music |i wish i knew some music i would like]

I have spent hours and hours reading.
My brain is sleepy. I have been trying
to learn cuneiform. I have been reading
different old books I am finding at the
apartment of a friend where I am staying.
Using the web and his dictionaries to try
to translate and find more information.
Making little trees and flow-charts of the
different versions of different stories.
Making notes of names, taking notes about
each name... Inanna, Baal, Asherah, Set,
Asherat, Ashteroth, Ishkur, Enlil, Enki,
Hadad, Elat, Ea, Jehovah, Marduk, An, Anu,
Alalu, Ninkhursag, Ereshkigal, Dumuzi,
Ninlil, Nannar, Gibil, Nergal, Sin, Utu,
Tiamat, Ishtar, Oannes, Isis, Ra, El,
Irarum, Asahk, Akhab, Gudia, Nimrod,
Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Judah, Cain,
...
mostly just trying to stay awake...
that should keep me awake for a bit.
