The direction is always upwards. Kundalini must rise to the top. In the head is where the bliss lies. Kundalini-Ananda; Kundalini-Bliss. The bliss of Kundalini. Pull up the breath consciously to the top of the head. Keep the breath there. Enjoy the stillness. Enjoy the bliss.

The attention always must be upwards. Upwards is the highest. The highest is in the head. Awareness is in the head. Attention is in the head. The breath, drawn upwards, merges in the highest point in the head. That is where fulfillment lies. That is where bliss is found. Here is the still space of existence.

This moment is here, whether I like it or not. What the moment brings is determined by my previous choices. It was determined by the path I forged into the future. The future is like reaching up and plucking an apple from a tree. Once it is plucked, I am stuck with it. Every action has consequences. Now I have to decide what to do with it.

A lot of significance is placed on the value of Discrimination on the spiritual path according to the Vedas. It is written that the Individual Self can merge with the Universal Self solely through the power of Discrimination. This is true.
Discrimination makes you realize that you are interconnected with all life, that you do not live in isolation, even if you tried. As it is said “no person is an island.”
Kundalini Shakti, the creative force of the universe, wants to express itself freely. In order to do that, it needs to remove obstacles from its path. In humans, these obstacles exist mostly in the thinking and feeling mind. These obstacles are blockages caused by insults, attachments, unfilled desires, daydreams, unrealized ambitions, entrenched beliefs, and so on.
Survival skills can be stretched and developed until success is gained; not merely survival, but success with your given abilities/gifts. The question always is: "What is behind?"
"What is behind what I see, hear, smell, feel, touch, and taste?" There is always another "behind" - another "beyond" - to discover. The surface, the materially experienceable, is just a front for your inner experience of love and compassion.
The underlying principle of Spiritual Practice is the belief that all people can attain spiritual liberation, spiritual enlightenment in their lifetimes. You do not have to wait for your physical death to experience the bliss of the “kingdom of heaven.” You can experience it while you are still in your body.

We exist because there are certain karmas we need to work out. Karmas are energies that are concentrated around one point: an individual personality. We need to let go of these energies so that we are free from them. And then, we need to make certain that no more karma accumulates around us.

I used the word stillness to describe this mental state and not the word silence. Silence to me is just the absence of sounds, while stillness can be experienced despite of the presence of sounds. I have experienced stillness in peaceful summer meadows as well as in noisy clubs.
