BREATH MEDITATION

From The Hindu Tradition of Breath Meditation: “The breath does not just begin or support life, the breath is the totality of life. It is life, far beyond the simple movement of the lungs in the bodies of mammals. […] Breath is the substance of which the inner and outer universe is constructed as well as the power within it which causes it to move and live…” Continue Reading


This reference was sent to mysticexperiences.net by follower Ron Krumpos, author of the book THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT IN LIFE, Interviews with leading world mystics. The book has been downloaded 70,000 times.

This link from Ron is a very easy, lucid entry into the subject of breath from the point of view of the Hindhu spiritual experience – very comprehensive and inclusive of other spiritual ways too. I’ve saved it as a permanent reference for further reading.

However, my first reaction was to reference my personal experiences of Reality (MER) for illumination, only to discover nothing at all about breath! I feel no twitchings of intuition on the subject whatsoever. I seem to have been taken completely out of any human reference by my MERs in general, including this breathing teaching.

Of course I have often come across references to Hindhu spiritual breath control but upon any further concentration at the time found nothing responded in me then, either.

For me therefore, breathing is simply a basic, necessary biological aspiration with no significance or use after human death.

I may be misreading the subject due to my adherence to the dawning realisation only experience of anything is valid – to the exclusion of all teachings, readings, ideologies, gossip and rumour, faith, hope or belief etc. That’s partly why I trust my MERs.

That sounds very severe, but is solid ground for me after my MERs. Personal experience is the only reality, all else is secondhand, artifice and human delusion …

I hope this is helpful. (It’s very difficult to tell if my revelations, if that is what they are, are meant to be shared, though some people tell me they are part of their personal epiphanies. That emboldens my posts somewhat …).

SPIRITUAL DOUBT?

I have no doubts about the the mystic experience of Reality (MER) and all that its insight keeps giving me.

This insight tells me doubt is a primitive, leftover defensive mechanism humans have.

In me doubt isn’t even a remnant now, though I certainly had tentative uncertainties at first.

Reality imperceptibly, undeniably, irresistibly, took care of them. In the meantime Reality also imparted the spiritual gift of submission.

This special submission takes away much of the human angst of ego which so bedevils humans with things like doubt. It did mine. (Fortunately, death gives ego the final heave ho!).

Now I leave the human condition to Reality simply because Reality is in charge of human development into its extinction before it can metamorphise into Reality.

Humans are, always have been and always will be the sole concern of Reality, not us. ‘Mind your own business and do unto others what you would have them do unto you’ is still Reality’s golden rule.

All Is Well.

Which Way

A significant Athony soliloquy i’d like to share …

Weltanschauung

Who will you follow and where will you go. Up or down, which way. Forwards or backwards in an infinite universe, where the very concept of direction has no meaning.

Will you listen, perchance, to a holy man or prophet. Does philosopher or mage have the answers you seek, a fool even.

Or an inner voice perhaps, as you wander the water marshes. The cry of gulls, the shriek of the buzzards, the paddling ducks. Overhead the dull grey of winter skies soothes and complements, a light, pattering rain adding its quiet voice to those of all else around you.

Are you tired of life maybe, or just its struggles and inanities. Do you weary of the earth and skies or is it the tedium of your species which wears you down.

Everywhere there is noise and yet a signal seems nowhere to be found. Unless from within. Yes, there…

DEALING WITH ATTACHMENTS

Ordinarily, humans don’t notice their attachments, their umbilicals. Seekers do.

Seekers see and recognise their attachments as spiritual impediments in their way.

By regular concentration of their minds on each of their attachments until the point of enchantment if needs be, Seekers will find the attachments gone.

They may not even realise the attachments have gone for a very long time. This is because with the distractions gone Reality has moved them on their way to more important things.

Recognition of and concentration on your attachments to the exclusion of all else will be noticed!

SIN

There is no such thing.

Humans believe anyone who does anything immoral or unethical, anything deliberately harmful physically or mentally, (including emotionally) is sinful.

But humans are a passing phase on the way to extinction as they come into their true spiritual status.

Mystics achieve a status of very high consciousness of existence through the actual personal experience of the Mystical Experience of the Reality (MER), in which we all exist whether we like it or not. They have responded by submitting, submerging themselves to Reality.

Unlike many ideologies such as religions, coercion is no part of this call (which is in all of us whether we listen or not. Your turn will come, in Reality’s own good time).

This absorbtion into Reality is irrisistible, welcomed with joy and humility. Mystics can be believed – there is no such thing as sin in their mystic experience.

So Sin is only a human word, limited to the human race. It has no meaning or even existence in MER.

Yes, the word sin exists in all religions but probably lost its proper, more loving MER meaning – to ignore one’s calling to Reality – after the religions’ mystic founders died.

Was sin – and is it still – a disciplinary device to promulgate each religions’ interpretation of how humanity must collectively reach its destiny by us all doing as we’re told while we’re here, in faith, belief and hope, i.e. by “faking it until we make it”, rituals, symbols, songs, dresses and funny hats, wound head gear, beards, covered faces, subduction of species and so on, and so on – manmukh!, manmade stuff?).

The bottom line of being human is simple: you are your only access to MER.

Religion and society and their artificalities are no excuse to ignore your true, individual, custom made destiny awaiting you in Reality.

As for Society, that greatest of sins against MER, it must serve your needs, not the other way round. You are not an ideological commodity.

TOTALITARIANISM versus REALITY’S INDIVIDUALISM

What worries me is the growing political power of those ignorant of the lethal effects of ‘wokeness’, left wingism, socialism, on the freedom of the individual versus state totalitarianism. 

This is against humanity’s destiny in Reality.

Any heightened consciousness of human development, that only comes through individuals not totalitarianism, has always provoked totalitarianism to impose severe consequences on free individual development.

Just look at Ananias and Sophia of the bible, and the USSR, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, pre-reform India, Cuba and Venezuela. QED!

Former U.S. President Trump has turned out to be a pragmatic but finally disastrous antidote to the persistent lust for totalitarianism that plagues human progress.

The good news is, this too shall pass, because totalitaranism is artificial. It always falls under the weight of its own inherent evil* (lack of Reality). 

The bad news is totalitarianism has historically killed, maimed, mentally and physically crippled, tortured, imprisoned unjustly, impoverished and banished, tens of millions in its literally classical diabolical process. 

Sadly, totalitarianism, though passing, can survive many decades …  This time, let’s see if obvious danger obviates the danger …

*After being smuggled into and out of the European Iron Curtain countries a few times I was back in the safety of a western European city. I was billetted temporarily in an anonymous house with an old hand smuggler on his way out there again, a stranger to me. He asked for my impression of where I’d been. I told him I was so depressed at what I had seen of the enslavement into medieval peasantry from a once modern thriving culture. He laughed. He said, “Don’t worry friend, Communism/Socialism is falling under the weight of its own evil all over eastern Europe, even Russia.” I thought he was balmy. I had seen and heard what I had seen and heard.

International socialism was in top gear then, full of a lethal power and an insidiously applied influence of leaders of a political party with less than five per cent membership of its people.

A few years later the Berlin Wall fell.

MUGGLES!

Question: You refer to Muggles now and again. I think I know what you mean but I notice you often reveal a deeper meaning when you write things out, like you do with these Questions and Answers. So can you tell me what you really think”Muggles” means?

Answer: Well Muggles is the word J.K. Rowling uses in her Harry Potter books to describe ordinary, conventional people who live conventional lives, who don’t know anything about magic and don’t want you to tell them about it either because they don’t think for themselves. They are more comfortable following the prevailing cultures, taboos and mythomanias of their times.

Q: Isn’t that normal?

A: Absolutely!

Q: So why does it sound so pejorative?

A: Because that’s J. K. Rowling’s skill in using context to make it sound insulting so as to achieve her narrative purposes.

Q: Isn’t it also insulting when you use it?

A: No. I use it in what humans would call a spiritual context. So I use it as a description, not an intended insult. I use it to make the point that most humans at humanity’s present level of evolution have not experienced Reality.

Most people haven’t any idea of what you’re talking about, don’t want to know and can get very angry if you persist, rightly so in my view.

I never do talk about Reality except to genuine Seekers and Mystics.

Sufis have their own ways of putting off the merely curious without the curious even knowing.

Q: But the subject of mysticism is widely discussed, especially among the world’s scholars and scientists, even philosophers and theologians, as you have often written.

A: Yes, it is. But most of it is without the experience of the mystical experience of Reality. Without that special experience, which is caught not taught, much of what is said and written about Reality is gossip, rumour, conjecture, surmise, hearsay, sometimes sincere but nevertherless still sincerely wrong – completely artificial, like religions and other political idealogies masquerading behind morality and ethic in religious movements, and “social justice” in mythomanic political circles.

Q: Do you believe in magic?

A: Magic is a human word. It’s used to explain the inexplicable. But in Reality there are no words, no names, just Reality.

There was nothing human in my MERs, no “magic”, nothing inexplicable, just what humans who have experienced Reality and come back would agree is ineffable. Reality Rules.

Evidence of a prehistoric, even pre-time existence of Reality? A perspective.

Ron Krumpos, who follows this Blog, author of “The Greatest Achievement In Life” with 70,000 ebook downloads, wrote to Keith and said: “I thought you might enjoy this little article:

“Einstein’s answer to a New York rabbi clears things up a bit. The rabbi cabled him in 1929 to ask him if he believed in God. Einstein replied, “I believe in Spinoza’s God, who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings”.

It’s clear what Spinoza’s God is not. He isn’t the God of the Bible, the personal God of Spinoza’s own Jewish tradition, or of Christianity, the one whose job description includes closely monitoring human affairs and miraculously intervening in them. What he is isn’t so clear.

Spinoza used the provocative formulation Deus sive natura—“God, or nature”—but he actually regarded nature as just the visible, comprehensible aspect of God’s infinite, incomprehensible being. One consequence is that everything that happens in nature, and everything that nature’s lawful order dishes out to us personally, is necessary—the way the conclusion of a logical or mathematical demonstration is necessary.

Everything is determined, not by God’s will—He doesn’t have one—but by our being, with everything else, an integral part of God’s being. Nothing happens by chance. And there are no miracles. Asking God for one, asking that He suspend natural law for our benefit, is asking God to trip up God.

But once we recognize this inexorable order as God’s only providence, we arrive at a serene acceptance of the world, combined with a virtuous immunity to its petty distractions and snares, thus partaking of the true freedom which belongs to God.” (My italics).

Ron added, “If you substitute Reality for God, that just about summarizes my beliefs too”.

Yes, I agree with Spinoza, Einstein and Ron. That just about says it all.

But what really strikes me is that Spinoza and Einstein’s lives were separated by about 300 years. Ron’s and my lives were separated from Einstein’s by about 100 years and all of us were separated from the oldest recorded Hinduism on the subject, Vashishtha, by12,000 years ago and Jesus’s life by over 2,000 years. Such evidence of human consciousness of the eternal existence of Reality abounds throughout the ages.

All of which goes to show how Reality has existed in many parts of the world at least well beyond humanity’s limited consciousness and was there at the beginning of all things and is what drives everything still, including us.

Interestingly, mystics are the only witnesses who have experienced this great truth from way beyond our currently primitive stage of evolutionary consciousness.

MYSTICISM IS NOT A PHILOSOPHY.

Mysticism is not a philosophy. It is a personal, individual experience of a Reality beyond human consciousness, logic, reason or intuition.

This is why those who have experienced it have such an ineradicable conviction of the phenomenon’s existence.

They have experienced a powerfully non biological, creative, joy of giving, knowledge, a oneness of all embracing existence of everything, even matter, that is completely beyond mankind, on a level beyond all human consciousness, measurement or interference.

Philosophy on the other hand is all supposition, mind stuff like logic and reason for instance; ideological like socialism, communism or religions, none of which even have successful human experiences to support their mythomania.

All Is Well.

NEVER DIE

After the mystic experience of Reality, the adage, “Those who live by the sword die by the sword” can be translated as, “Those who are in but not of the world never die.”

This is only a surmise or intuition about the purpose of mystics arising from my personal experiences of MER.

But mystics, who have had that mystical experience, while seeming to be in development like ordinary humans, are on a different level of evolutionary development that does not include the survival of the human species as we know it today.

Are mystics a different species, as Bucke and Sinetar have already noted in their books written about 100 years apart?

Can we speculate that the human condition is the equivelant of a nursery garden designed by Reality to evolve all species into just one species, mystics, and that non mystics at death are in the process of entropy? After all, scientists say 99% of all earth’s species have already become extinct.

Certainly mystics are of a higher consciousness, if my experiences of the mystical experience of Reality are anything to go by …

I heard that a doctor of psychology told a friend I am hundred of years ahead of the human race. (I presume she meant all mystics).

Except for my consciousness, which is very definitely different and far ahead of most humans to the extent I can’t take humans seriously, I can’t say one way or the other what the good doctor said about me is true. But is it?

All Is Well.

HUMANKIND’S DEFAULTING MIND

QUESTION: In your poem “Mystics” you have a line, “man’s defaulting mind”. What does it mean?

ANSWER: Mankind, (or humankind to be up to date), thinks on the level of consciousness that is only physical, material, matter.

But deep in every human is what we could call the undeveloped soul. It only makes its presence felt in the rare humankind experience of the Silence.

That experience roils the stomach, softens the heart, stills existence with a joy beyond human understanding, gifts a deep personal sense of everything belonging, a knowing that is unperceived by the generality of mankind but stays with that human all its life in an evolution of individual, personal development that finally becomes something not fully human in this life and nothing at all after death. (This is the same problem we will see in ‘aliens’ when they arrive here or we arrive there – wherever and if they are anywhere …).

This still unrealised human part of a universal soul nevertheless prompts some humans into a life longing hunger and thirst for something without knowing what it is.

Others experience it in full however and are known as mystics – if they let themselves be known at all.

And then there are the majority of folk wherein their portion of the cosmic soul remains unborn. They live in default, just in their minds and emotions.

These are the innocent “defaulting minds” developed mystics feel suck the life out of existence. This emotional mind is at the heart of all evil here, intentional or otherwise.

On the historic evidence of mankind’s existence so far there seems little sign of any lasting effect of human attempts to change this primitive situation, certainly not by anything political for instance.

Perhaps mysticism, that becomes completely embedded in individuals so beyond any outer human intervention ie: political or religious, is what human evolution is all about? Some scholars in history, even to this day have already posed that very possibility in varying ways.

Mystics:

Few here of their kind,
Orphaned souls
No parents find.
Entombed in man’s mortality
And man’s defaulting mind,
Neither human, nor sublime:
Lost, yet Divine.

Nanaimo, 2011.

CONTENTMENT

QUESTION:  I have a question that isn’t a spiritual question but bothers me a lot.

ANSWER:  Yes?

Q:  I have two married sisters whose children just don’t get on with each other, sometimes in front of everyone. As a result, my sisters and their husbands have put off the traditional family get-togethers I used to arrange. My husband and I are surprised to feel relieved we can celebrate alone together at last, so we can bow out of all that, the silences at mealtimes, the hostility, insults and upsets, the situation bothers me. Even I am taken for granted in the things I am left to do as an older sister for our parents for instance or maintaining connection with our aunts and uncles and their families. I am feeling that families are to use a word you use, a myth.

A: Let’s hope the lessened family clutter in your life will allow your nascent contentment to flourish, contentment being the seminal manure of real self discovery in its existence in Reality..

Knowing and being one’s true self – what contentment is all about – makes Transcendence more likely.

If you use the SEARCH button on the CONTENTS page you’ll find the various posts that present themselves have contentment at their core in the search for what life is all about; in ever being able to achieve your consciousness in Reality.

The rest is human clutter that fades under scrutiny, made up taboos, like ‘family’ in your case.

OVER 900 MENTIONS IN ACADEMIA.EDU PAPERS?

Over nine hundred and one mentions of the name Keith Hancock, or Keith Michael Hancock have appeared so far in papers published by Academia.edu, according to Academia. Every day Academia notifies me  of yet more such papers being submitted to them. 

Academia also tells me they’ll identify the papers and their authors if I pay them a yearly fee of $99. 

The website says Academia.edu is used by academics in “16,919 universities”, suggesting these include Oxford, Berkeley, MIT, and NYU.

If you have come across any actual evidence of this in papers you have read or others have read and told you about, I’d be grateful if you’d let me know. 

Thank you.

A “MYSTIC SUMMIT”!

A “MYSTIC SUMMIT”! February 1-6

“Including 40 scholars, teachers, contemporary mystics”

A follower of this web site sent me this notification in January. She asked me what I thought. This is my edited reply:

“Very depressing. They think mystics are here to help mankind. That was not in any of my experiencs of Reality.

“In my experiences, mankind is a seething obstruction to Reality of lust, anger, greed, attachments and ego.

“True mystics, from my experiences and awareness of the historical phenomena of mysticism, are deliberately withdrawn from this world as part of the mystic processing that takes them far beyond human existence. I am.

“Furthermore, mysticism is caught, not taught, cannot be evangelised or prosyletised nor can it be used as a palliative for the human condition. Experience of it is guarded by an impregnable security system – the actual experience of Reality itself. Even the religions don’t have that. It’s baffling science, too.

“As the Christian book says, “Many are called, few are chosen”. So if as it seems, these people have not experienced the mystic experience of Reality (MER) enough to even lift them out of this worldly activity they’re advertising, they’re just stumbling. They’re not mystics yet. Their qualifications and reasons for any mystic identity are doubtful, to say the least …

“The best I can say for these people is they may be sincere but they are sincerely wrong. Their present state of existence cannot help humanity, not even real Seekers.

“Anyway, so far as the human condition is concerned, Reality is in charge, not us.

“Thanks for telling me about this though – sad as it makes me …

Big social distance hugs,
Keith.
