(Soul) - The seeming separate, Individual
being, or Self
(little "s"), living in any world, or in apparent time and
- is spiritual enlightenment; pure Knowing; abiding in pure
or pure Being.
- is one who is enlightened.
- (Sanskrit) Is the principle of Action
occurring with (and/or to) every apparent separate entity living in
the world, or moving through the Universe with its stream of infallible
effect. It is what each one of us is now working out, or is yet to work
out from previous actions (causes) that we have already set in motion
or are now setting in motion. The Bible states, "As you sow, so
shall you reap," and "He who lives by the sword will die by
the sword." Today this would also include "a gun" or
"a bomb." This is similar to the principle discovered and
declared by Isaac Newton as Newton's Third Law: "For every action
there is an equal and opposite reaction."
fire of transformation burning - Holding your attention steadily
focused in the true Self, or I
AM. Steadily remaining in the Self, or pure Being, will eventually
burn away, neutralize or transform all of the binding or limiting conditioned
habit patterns of the mind.
agreements makes your world work - The phenomenal world is held
together by agreement. Your agreement, as it pertains to a thing (anything),
is what assures your mind of what's so about the thing, or is what "makes
it real" as far as your mind is concerned. Therefore, if you don't
keep your agreements, there can be no dependable assurance - no reliability,
persistence, steadfastness or state of constancy - to your world, or
in the world, or from the people you daily deal with in your life and
"Kick Ass" - a "kick in the ass"
is a rude, brusque or abrupt demand from life, or the world, that requires
your attention, response, compliance or submission with regard to some
situation, condition or set of circumstances.
In AHAM, it is
often said the Guru
may "kick ass" in order to get your attention, or to turn
your negative behavior around. This is done in love, to intercede before
the world does, making you wish you had listened to the Guru and his
more gentle methods of persuasion or instructions. Even though the Guru
sometimes uses "tough love" to guide or instruct you, it is
not to cause you pain or make you suffer. It is to remove the insidious
patterns of your mind that are the actual cause of your suffering. Kick
ass, is "kick butt."

and intelligent understanding, including what is advisable, practical,
sensible and far-reaching about the thing or subject under question

- In yoga, it is the "serpent power" or energy force
that is awakened and used traditionally to purify the body-mind, and
ultimately to realize the Self. It is considered the primordial cosmic
energy located in the individual at the base of the spine.
It is also often
said in the system of yoga to have or be a mystic circle of three and
a half coils and be situated in the umbilical region. It is the yogic
principle of serpent power that in traditional meditation or yoga is
directed up the central spinal nerve (sushumna) to the crown chakra
(center) of the head (sahasrara) and which over time purifies the body-mind.
