How You Can Find Nirvana By Aligning Yourself With the Universal Flow

It’s clear the mainstream of humanity is becoming increasingly dissatisfied, and dis-eased as the seeming relentless struggle to control life and the planet’s dwindling resources rolls on. Fortunately, a growing group of people are turning away from this mechanised madness by finding love, peace and fulfilment within. It’s all about recgonising oneself as part of the greater whole and flowing with that, inside yourself. Understanding how the microcosym of your life fits within the greater macrocosym leads to a sublime way of being. You find the mystical ‘nirvana’, inside yourself. Here’s how… Infinite Creative Potential Exists Inside You I put it to you, that the universe exploded into being and unleashed flows of consciousness, like ripples on a pond (which people call the ‘big-bang). It was done without intention – or else who had the intention and where did the ‘creator’ come from? It just happened. And that creative potential still exists inside of you. It is who you are.

When you let go of the need to control life, the release steadily unwinds you, taking you on a Journey of Enlightenment where ultimately you become the One, inside of yourself; you lose attachment to identity, it feels like no one is here. The divine paradox is, that in touching this void of nothingness, you simultaneously realise the infinite potential of the One – the unlimited creative possibility that caused the bigbang. Your soul then writes a story – a flow – which is uniquely yours.

The Journey of Enlightenment

This ‘Enlightenment’ is not the end of the story. It is only the beginning of the authentic one. You then begin to recognise sense of purpose, unveiled as divine service to the whole.

It is only when you let go the life you thought you were creating, the real work and the real service comes gloriously into view.

So how do you live that here and now? How do unfold your real life-story? It helps to recognise the bigger universal flow, how it’s moving, and to become an active part in that.

You are a Divine Paradox

In this big explosion of consciousness – the bigbang – you have essentially two contrasting flows creating relativity: one outwards forming the multiplicity of separation consciousness, and the other inwards, reconnecting with the source – like the undertow on a pond.

These relativistic flows, create the miraculous awareness of life experience.

However, in many places, unity consciousness gets stuck within the separation consciousness creating eddy currents. It’s where the universe becomes convoluted and distorted. The Law of Attraction draws streams of Unity Consciousness – as souls – into these convolutions.

You are a divine paradox: the infinite potential of the One, and at the same time, a streaming experience of the One – a unique soul.

The Universal Torus

Science and spirituality are now beginning to converge on a working model of the universe called “The Torus”. Essentially the bigbang is now drawing into a form of interrelating flows of consciousness – a good depiction of which is contained in the video below. Consider the blue light as Unity Consciousness and the golden as Separation Consciousness.

One ways to appreciate the Torus in it’s outer form, would be as a continually vibrating and pulsing apple – a “Big Apple”!

This Torus possesses the Void of the One – infinite potential running down through the core. Rotating torsional force flows into the Void.

Naturally working to unravel discord

Within this depiction, souls are streams of the flowing blue light. But the Torus is not yet fully formed. It’s not yet perfected with balanced harmony in all places. That’s where you and I come in.

Where the soul is not self-realised – not realising of the One ‘Torus’ Self – identities are created. These identities cause friction and disharmony in the flow, felt within us as pain, frustration, tightness, anger, worry, fear etc, etc, etc.

I put it to you, that the universe, of it’s own natural accord, by it’s own natural mechanism, is working to unravel that. The energies are working towards a balanced torus – harmony in all places, what some call ‘nirvana’.

Here is a depiction of the torus with both the microcosym of a man (connecting through the chakars) into the macrocosym of the universal torus…

Coming into Universal Alignment

I put it to you that you will be most aligned, most in the flow, and most within internal harmony, when you’re aligned with this macrocosym – it’s an entirely natural movement back to the core – Ascension – which just feels ‘right’.

One way to experience this movement Torus of energy, is to keep opening the chakras to allow this universal consciousness to flow into and through you. Then to observe its ‘pull’ guiding you through life. It’s so sophisticated, you can even experience it walking through town, or even the supermarket – because the flow exists everywhere!

What I observe, is that if there’s any separation from this, an identity forms, which then hurts! But if that which is separate – ego – lets go and chooses to flow with the mainstream of one’s soul, you ultimately come into alignment with the entirety, inside yourself. And it feels simply ‘right’.

A Spiritual Compass Did I say it was easy? Easy it is not!

That’s why it’s extremely useful to have a ‘compass’ to align you with your soul – your unique flow within the Torus. The process Openhandway is perfectly designed to bring you into this alignment:

It naturally causes that which is separate in you, to realign with the mainstream of your soul, and with that, the universal torus. And you can live that way in every single choice that you make, leading to nirvana within.

Are You Secretly Opposed to Nirvana?

Raw by Cherie Roe Dirksen

I’m a huge fan of grunge rock band, Nirvana, and could never be opposed to Kurt, Krist or Dave’s inciting, excitable and rebellious music that was the soundtrack of my youth — so now that that’s out the way…this article is actually about the state of Nirvana.

Smells Like Heaven

Nirvana (in Hinduism and Buddhism) is the highest level of enlightenment, a state of perfect peace and bliss — what most would call ‘heaven’.

It is the space in which our suffering and desires go away and are replaced with unity consciousness, happiness and tranquility.

It sounds good enough to eat!  But let’s get real…everyone has their own personal version of heaven, surely?

A Little More Lithium. Sir/Madam?

Nirvana is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘extinction/disappearance’ as in from the individual state to the universal state.  A-ha! Now we’re cracking that jagged little pill!

It is said to break the reincarnation cycle. Okay, am I sensing your ears perked up just then? Nirvana is starting to look very appetizing again! I mean, who doesn’t want to break the reincarnation/karma cycle? Unless, of course, you’re a masochist or have a propensity for dualistic roller-coaster rides.

But transcending desire?  Becoming one with everything?  Doesn’t that mean to lose ones very identity/personality?  I, for one, have to be honest here — I don’t want to lose my individuality!

I think our individual traits and nuances make life rather exciting. But is that my ego or spirit talking?

Come As You Are

I’ve spent the last 40 years honing and shaping who I am and now I’ve got to let it go?  Dust in the wind?

Just the word individuality says ‘in divided duality’ — clearly not a state of ‘oneness’…or is it?

What if we’ve been misinterpreting nirvana and it is not something that only monks can achieve if they’ve relinquished all and meditated for 50  years (which, let’s face it, only puts us off further because most of the human race wouldn’t even think to attempt that)?

We each have the freewill, of course, to do whatever we please on our various paths and if meditating for a lifetime gets you going, then kudos to you.

But for those of us who feel slightly lacking in the discipline department, what about us?  Are we condemned?

Polly Wants a Cracker

If we are smokers, drinkers, partiers, sugar junkies, caffeine addicts — are we going to be treading the karmic wheel for another thousand years?

I totally advocate a healthy body and a balance in all we do and put into our sacred vessels — but look at all those things listed above. They’re all ‘physical’, aren’t we more than our material bodies?

You can be ‘Perfect Pollyanna’ and do yoga, pilates, run the extra mile, eat raw, cut out dairy and sugar, only drink mineral water gathered from a well by vestal virgins in Toronto and meditate 12 hours a day on the top of Mount Shasta and still not achieve nirvana if you don’t truly ‘get it’.

We have a mind/body/spirit connection and this particular trinity is integral to unveiling nirvana.

Milking It

Okay, so let’s backtrack a little…earlier I said that some people might want to come back for another life-time because they have a fondness for duality and roller-coaster rides.

Most humans enjoy a little thrill — hence the success of most amusement parks — shrieking in excitement as our guts try to shimmy on up our throats, we delight in being yanked back and forth, up and down (or, at least, some of us do).

Now here’s the big BUT…

…but what if we were meant to be thrilled, delighted and thrown into constant enjoyment? What if nirvana is what WE make of it — the joy we define as our own (as long as we hurt none in the process).

And here is the juicy part….

In Full Bloom

What if ‘spirit’ wants to be excited and not just the ‘human’? If ‘hu’ means God and man means ‘man’ (the divine within), isn’t God just out to have a good time with this amazing creation — the uni/multiverse?

Isn’t that what this whole ‘separation’ of the One was all about — God got bored?

So when your purpose becomes joy and you are respecting other peoples freewill and harming none — you can say that you are positively in nirvana.  You are experiencing a connection with your fellow man/life forms (because you respect all life as emanating from the One which is ultimately you) whilst being a beautiful, expressive, creative individual little sausage!

We’re All Heart-Shaped Boxes On a Plain

Could it be that we can mould and shape our experience of nirvana to accommodate our own sacrosanct free will? We must define ‘happy’ for ourselves because it is multi-faceted (one box doesn’t tick all) — simple yet complicated — just like God…just like us.

It’s like an infinity symbol (figure of 8) — seemingly in duality (as there are two circles) but ultimately connected as one.

Perhaps there is no blanket state of nirvana? All this blood, sweat and tears we shed to achieve enlightenment is defined by whom? Gurus, leaders, saints, masters? But it should be defined by you.

Who is the ‘I Am’ presence within you?  That is what you need to figure out — that is the way to your personal state of nirvana

About a Girl, a Boy and Creation in General

We are already one with each other — it is only an illusion that we were ever separate.

We are quantum — we can be everywhere at any time, we can be everything at any time.

We are duality and we are one, we are anything we think we can be and we are the nothingness in between…and we are powerful beyond measure!

Don’t be opposed to nirvana, you are nirvana…remember (reinstate that membership — you are already part of the whole).

So, all that is left is to fire up the stereo, pump up the volume and listen to ‘Nevermind‘….
