The year will soon end, and hence i was thinking of going into the realms of my understanding of this life as a Yogi, to speak to you in terms that i have for last few months. As someone who has been accumulating all the learnings and secrets of the ancient life. Even though soon ancient will be studied as a period that was before internet, but we in India know ancient is not somewhere outside, it was and still in some bodies lie within.
According to legend, Adiyogi Shiva drank somarasa, the intoxicating juice of the moon. He simply imbibed the distilled essence of the moonbeams and was described as constantly drunk and hence in bliss. I, myself being a Yogi, I am not against pleasure. But I am unwilling to settle with little pleasures. That is all.
The main source of energy for this planet is the sun, and our body becomes just the piece of that planet through sun’s influence in many different ways. Yet the very fundamentals of our birth are connected to the cycles of the moon. The moon which has no emitting energy like the sun, has tremendous impact on our systems because of its closeness to the planet. So when we want to understand the ways of life, the way it happens outside of us we look to the sun. But when we want to understand life from within, we look to the moon. So influence of the moon on our systems is absolutely undeniable so much so that the natural biological cycles in a feminine body is 100 percent connected to the cycle of the moon. And thus not always but I would say generally that woman are far more existential because their bodies speak the language of the moon. There is no question about that. This keeping of time, we should not misunderstand with keeping of the time with clocks and watches, they can’t know a thing, they will just keep on going mechanically. But through millions of breathing, knowing, learning times through an evolutionary period of years and years, our bodies have known time in a different way, and it is not only instinctive but it has expanded in ways and has manifested as in the spirit of life.
Even though how planets, moon, Sun move is in itself a mechanical process in some way, but how they are made and what they provide, the consequence and impact it has on our lives in not mechanical.
It is very alive. Its impact is very experientially powerful. In the development of the energy system of a human being, If this energy system that is us, witnesses 1008 full moons, which approximately happens in 84 years of a life time, you would have completed 7 solar cycles and 1008 lunar cycles, that means your energy system matures to a point that even if you do not know any spiritual process, it matures to a point that it can flower easily. And it is said to happen very easily after death. In Yogic world it is known that if one’s grandmother lived over 84 years, she may not be coming back on this earth again, ever, that one can be sure of. Though she may not attain mukti, the highest self but she is not coming back, she will have proceeded into various stages, if she had Sadhana, or was spiritual, if she carried even a little bit of awareness, for sure she is not coming back.
If anyone lives through 7 solar cycles and 1008 lunar cycles it has been said that you break a certain bond with nature, with planet. In that long period of your time on earth, it has been estimated that one consumes around 10 to 14 tonnes of food, that is that much amount of planet’s soil and life’s elements have manifested in you in many different ways. And thus very easily, with very little assistance even if you die knowing nothing, about anything, its said that you can even go beyond the cycles of birth and death. Because your bond with the planet and the material of the planet, that which you carry within you and the memory of it all, you will break that bond.
And now since you too know it, from here onwards if you ever see or learn about a person who is around 83-85, of if you are living with one, you can be rest assured and observe that something will change during this age of one’s life, significant changes happen around this age. Also this mainly happens because of Karmic bondage that is holding a person to a certain pattern of behavior, around this time it will loosen up. This is the reason and once this Karmic bondage loosens, it gets hard for the universal momentum to find another body immediately, no womb will accept him. He can hang around, and the forces of nature will surely settle him to a better, and lighter place than earth. He may not need to go through another process, even if he lived an absolutely ignorant life. And this is why you will hear from many a people in India, have a long life, live a long life. This thus is the significance of living a long life. As it won’t be too intelligent to be living, and going through all the emotions that one goes through in one’s life time all over again.
