Who am I?

Hi everyone, after a long gap, joining you all again in the spiritual journey.  Like to discuss on a simple and sensational question, which I heard every where in last four years.

Who am I? Why I am born in this world? What is the meaning of life? What is death? What is beyond death? Why we are born and death? The same questions been repeated everywhere and every-time. Let me give an simplified answers which I experienced and feel so far within thyself.

Who am I? I was born when thy body came out of the womb of my mother. Then insist the body started to breath and stared to cry out, I was born. They named this body some XYZ. The name XYZ added not only the name to the body but also an religion, caste everything which is followed in that so called society. So without knowing anything I was born along with me, its now know as my identity. If only I born without an Identity and call myself just an human being like we tell its an cat, an dog, an lion. I am human an freedom or emptiness been created. But we create an identity. This identity creates the problem, born now started to grow, now by 3 yrs this XYZ starts to tell, Its mine. It wanted to rule or own what all it likes. So he wanted to be an owner to the thinks he likes. He cries, fights to get the desire. Where is this idea gets into him, is comes out or its goes in by absorbing from the outside world. Human is an creature who can absorb thinks easily and rapidly. Human cant create things without seeing, he absorb everything around him to create something out from his absorption. Like an flight from an bird, an house from an nest or cave, it goes on. So now he start to own things for himself. He grows to talks the language which he absorb, the more he absorb the more he is departed from himself. He always wanted to know what is outside him then knowing whats inside him. He gets millions of thoughts when he is even sits alone for an 5 minutes time. What is the reason behind this enormous thoughts. Who create it and from were it keeps on rising?

Rising of thoughts starts from the day we absorb the outer world than the inner. The more we absorb the more we spend our energy, this create the desire within us, say if an boy sees a Ball, we cries for it and gets an Ball, there comes the desire. We play for some time and once his desire is fulfilled he moves and search for something else. Like this his desire keeps on changing without any control. So who rise this desire? Desire was created by your Mind. Body and Mind are not separated, they both travel hand to hand. Each cell of your body as an mind. So what your 5 senses takes as an input are converted into an Thought by the process of the Mind. The mind loves adventure, it seek new things. When you get this it know what is the output of it. But when you cant get it, it create an negative thought an depression, stress and ends up in diseases. So its all your mind which we spend outward creates so much confusion.

If only we reduce the fast absorption to an slow one, then our thought process also slows down, taking one into our mind and working on it and give you success. If you stop absorbing the outer world, and start to see your inner self, the same will happen within you now. The mind starts to go deep inside to know what is inside us. Then the thoughts reduces day by day, an emptiness created within us. Where the Mind and Body connects to silence of emptiness. Now your I - dies. The mind and body feels there is something more powerful within us but we cant find were is it. So they move deeper and deeper and find that light where the body, mind and soul merge. This state will shows who we are, how we are connected to this universe.

This can be experienced by everyone, when you love thyself unconditionally, without any expectation. When you start love yourself, you know you can love everyone around you. You can feel the same in everything which you see and feel, you can see everything as one family. All are made of atoms. Without atoms nothing can evolve. Now we come across the 5 elements land, water, fire, air and ether or space. From the empty space the heat is created which is in the form of Air, by the fiction of the space and air molecules Fire is created, from the fiction of air and fire- water is created, from fiction of air, fire and water - land is created. By the fiction of space, air, fire, water and land - Life is created. Cell is formed. This cells divides to form n number of species. Today we human are nothing but an trillion of cells. Only the number of cells may differ, but all living organisms are made only by cells. Without that there is no life in this planet.

This shows that all are one, with different shape, size and appearance. But all have the same life cycle in general, an male and female, female lay eggs or give birth. Female are creators, Male are protector. When they both have a clash, they destroy themselves. By now you can understand that Who are we? Who am I? I am the one who is everywhere, but only the number, size, shape and appearance differs. I am an Soul, having a different body. The lesser we absorb, the longer we can live, like an tortoise.

Why we are born in this world? We are born to LOVE, CARE, HELP and SUPPORT. We need to love everything in this world, we are born for that, not to show who is more powerful or more rich. All born without anything and die without anything. You born for love and you die with the love of someone. When love more you can see at your death bed the  n number of people to shed tears for you. If you were jealous or greedy, no one will turn to your death, if they come also no one care or feel for your death. If you take any personality from history who is still loved by people is not because of there money, power or education. Its all because the LOVE and CARE which they showed for this society.

What is the meaning of LIFE? When we understand who we are and what for we are born, then it shows the meaning of Life clearly.

What is Death? Death is just an beautiful movement of life as we don't no or experience the pain of birth, we never know the pain of death. Its is the movement when your I - body dies and understand the real state. That you are not the body, you are the soul. Its like you depart or detach from the body as if you remove an old dress. When there is no use, or no energy or happiness inside this body, when your soul not feeling comfortable then it just leaves the body. When you leave only you understand the truth, that its all what you were experiencing were all just an dream which is called as an Life. Its simply stated as Mayai or illusion. If we understand this, and fear not for death, we will do more good things in this world.

What is beyond death?
 Beyond death is the emptiness, the reality of once true life. Traveling back to the source. As we sleep and wake up daily to start our routine, once we die we wake from an dream and move into the real world. This can be done even when we are alive, which as total as astral travel.

Why we are born and death? 
Its an experience of the soul, it comes to do some work. All are born for some reason, it can be to feed an dog, to plant an tree, to love an family. In general everything is connected by this single word LOVE. Born for mother love, grown and make love with opposite sex, give birth and love your kids. Birth and death is like a dream, when we sleep we fulfill all our thoughts in the form of dreams. Its just like dream inside an dreams. Hope you got an clear idea. Calm your mind, move it inward and feel the emptiness within yourself and understand the connectivity of thyself with this universe.

Secrets of THOUGHTS - How to rule it?

Our next topic will be on thoughts. Secrets behind thoughts, why our mind is thinking always. We can able ideal without thinking. Why this happens? Where thoughts are created, is it imagination or is there any value for each of our thoughts, if so what are the effects and causes for our thoughts. We will be seeming the hidden secrets of thoughts and how to rule it and gain energy from it. Wait for my next post.

Secret of Spinal Cord and Human Energy

Secret of Spinal Cord and Human Energy, to understand this first we need to know a few things about our spinal cord. Its a normal science which everyone needs to know to understand ourselves. SPINAL COLUMN is made up of 33 bones 7 vertebrae in the cervical region (C1-C7), 12 in the thoracic region (Th1-Th12), 5 in the lumbar region (L1-L5), 5 in the sacral region and 4 in the coccyges region.

The Central Nervous System (CNS) is composed of the brain, brain stem and spinal chord. It is responsible for processing every sensation and thought you experience.

The Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) consists of twelve pairs of cranial nerves which emerge from the brain and 31 pairs of spinal nerves which emerge form the spinal cord. These nerves travel from every organ, cell and tissue to the brain and then back down from the brain and exit the spinal cord at very specific areas. The spinal cord is the main pathway for information between the CNS and PNS. Nerves called the spinal nerves or nerve roots come off the spinal cord and pass out through a hole in each of the vertebrae called the foramen (meaning "opening") to carry the information from the spinal cord to the rest of the body, and from the body back up to the brain.

When one Chakra is out of balance it cannot created a blended free flow of energy through the Chakras and thus physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, we become out of balance. If one endocrine gland is not functioning properly, it affects all the others, particularly the pituitary and hypothalamus. The proper functioning of all of the endocrine glands is essential to balance all their corresponding Chakras, which then creates the potential for physical, emotional, mental health, as well as spiritual transcendence and enlightenment.

There are 7 (seven) systems of the organism and 156 organs.


In this above list the  ENDOCRINE/SPINE Set are 7 tuning forks designed to work with each of the endocrine glands of the human body as well as specific regions of the spinal column. The endocrine glands are the pineal, pituitary/hypothalamus, thyroid/parathyroids, thymus, pancreas, gonads, and adrenals. These frequencies have been determined to bring balance and harmony to the hormones secreted by the Endocrine glands and to the Endocrine glands themselves, as well as the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This system regulates the body's major continuous and prolonged functions including growth and development, cellular metabolism, energy, blood balance of nutrients, reproduction, water and electrolytes, and the body's defenses against stress.

Each of the endocrine glands corresponds with one of the 7 main Chakras. The endocrine glands transmit energy directly to the Chakras and vice versa. It is important to note that ALL the Chakras and glands are of equal importance for spiritual development.When one Chakra is out of balance it cannot created a blended free flow of energy through the Chakras and thus physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, we become out of balance. If one endocrine gland is not functioning properly, it affects all the others, particularly the pituitary and hypothalamus. The proper functioning of all of the endocrine glands is essential to balance all their corresponding Chakras, which then creates the potential for physical, emotional, mental health, as well as spiritual transcendence and enlightenment.

Lets see single glands and there control over our energy level in our body. If you start to understand the basic working of our body, we can easily understand many things hidden within us, so lets see the science between our Spinal Cord & how to increase our energy level by the help of stimulating the 7 glands.

The Pineal Gland - Crown Chakra:

The pineal gland is considered a master gland (as is the pituitary gland/hypothalamus), both being responsible for the regulation of all the other endocrine glands. The pineal gland secretes the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is stimulated by Darkness and inhibited by Light.

Melatonin regulates sleep-wake cycles, breathing cycles, and our awareness of the time of day and the seasons via the degree of light coming through the retina of the eyes. Spiritually, the pineal gland is associated with both the Crown & 3rd Eye Chakras. Some believe it to be like an antenna or satellite dish receiving cosmic energies through the Crown Chakra.

The mid-brain is the highest part of the brain stem, which is an extension of the spinal cord.The pineal gland is located in the mid-brain behind the thalamus and hangs from the roof of the 3rd ventricle of the brain. The mid-brain is is part of the brain stem and joins lower parts of the brain stem and spinal cord with higher parts of the brain. Though not directly connected to the spine, it does affect the entire spine especially in relation to motor coordination and posture.

The Pituitary Gland & Hypothalamus  - Ajna Chakra:

The pituitary gland is a double-lobed pea sized gland nestled in the spheroid bone at the roof of the nose. The spheroid bone is the only bone that connects to all the other bones of the cranium and its movement is responsible for "milking" the pituitary gland to secrete its hormones. There is also a direct connection between the spheroid bone and the coccyx, so therefore also between the pituitary/hypothalamus and adrenal glands.

The pituitary gland is a master gland, (as is the pineal gland), and produces hormones that specifically affect all the other endocrine glands. It has been called the "General's Headquarters". The hypothalamus controls pituitary function, "central processing unit" for the whole hormonal system.Another metaphor is that the hypothalamus is the CEO, which directs the President, the pituitary gland, to process messages via hormones to and from the other endocrine glands.

Interaction with the 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras will directly affect the pituitary gland and hypothalamus. You may also connect with both by making contact with the outer tips of the sphenoid bone. The medulla oblongata works directly with the hypothalamus and thus the pituitary gland. Both the hypothalamus and medulla oblongata are responsible for controlling involuntary processes such as the regulation of the heartbeat, breathing, constriction and dilation of blood vessels, and body temperature. The medulla oblongata is integral in the transmission of nerve impulses between the spinal cord and the higher brain centers, including the pituitary gland. Medulla Oblongata serves to connect the spinal cord and the brain.

THYROID GLAND - Throat Chakra:The pituitary gland controls the release of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones also help maintain normal blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, muscle tone, and reproductive functions. The neck area is where we take in air, inhaling and exhaling. It is the bridge through which the breath must pass in order that we may live. Spirit comes into us through the in-breath, and on the out-breath we release what is no longer needed. Deep breathing can revitalize the thyroid/parathyroid glands as well as the whole body, bringing in life-force energy, calm and serenity.

From the brain stem emerges the 7 Cervical vertabra, known as C1 through C7. The thyroid gland resonates with the Cervical vertebrae. This section of the spine resonates with the Thyroid/Cervical tuning fork frequency. Spinal nerves, bone, tissue and fluids can be favorably affected by this frequency.

THYMUS GLAND - Heart Charkra:
The thymus gland is located in the upper part of the chest, specifically in front and above the heart behind the sternum. It produces T-lymphocytes (T-cells), white blood cells that fight infections and destroy abnormal cells. It is considered the master gland of a healthy immune system.

Science has proven that T-cell count increases when we are feeling the emotions of love. It is directly affected by our ability to give and receive love. When we are feeling bitter, angry, or hateful towards ourselves or another, our ability to fight infection and disease is reduced. A healthy thymus gland is directly connected to the development of compassion and loving kindness.

The Thorasic vertebrae are called T1 through T12. The thymus gland resonates with the upper Thorasic vertebrae, T1 through T6.

This section of the spine resonates with the Thymus/Upper Throasic tuning fork frequency. Spinal nerves, bone, tissue and fluids can be favorably affected by this frequency.

PANCREAS GLAND - Solar Plexus Chakra:The pancreas gland is an elongated organ located diagonally across the back of the abdomen, slightly below and behind the stomach and in front of the spine. The pancreas plays two roles having both digestive and hormonal functions. One part of the pancreas, the exocrine pancreas, secretes digestive enzymes. The other part of the pancreas, the endocrine pancreas, secretes hormones that regulate the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Diabetes is a common ailment of a poorly functioning pancreas. Depending on the type of diabetes, this can be remedied by exercise, dietary changes and stress reduction.

The qualities of this Chakra including self-esteem, happiness, empowerment, concentration, focus, intellect and confidence. It also regulates how we let sweetness into our life.

The pancreas gland resonates with the lower Thorasic vertebrae, T7 through T12, and the Lumbar vertebrae L1 through L5.

This section of the spine resonates with the Pancreas/Lower Thorasic & Lumbar tuning fork frequency. Spinal nerves, bone, tissue and fluids can be favorably affected by this frequency.

GONADS - Sacral Chakra:The gonads are the ovaries in a woman and testes in a man. They are the main source of sex hormones, which are the chemicals that secrete the essences for new life via eggs and sperm. They create our feminine and masculine characteristics, respectively. There is a direct connection between the ovaries and the adrenal glands. Adrenal fatigue and affect a woman's menstrual cycle. 

The triangular shaped Sacrum (meaning "sacred bone") consists of 5 vertebrae in an adult after age 25, at which time it usually becomes fused. In a child 0-26, it consists of four or five sacral vertebrae.

This section of the spine resonates with the Gonads/Sacrum tuning fork frequency. Spinal nerves, bone, tissue and fluids can be favorably affected by this frequency.

ADRENAL GLANDS - Root Chakra:The pair of adrenal glands, also referred to as the supra-renal glands, are are triangular-shaped glands located on top of each kidney. Adrenal glands work hand-in-hand with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.

The adrenal glands are made up of two parts. The outer part is called the adrenal cortex, and the inner part is called the adrenal medulla.

The adrenal cortex produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolism, the balance of salt, potassium and water in the body, the immune system, and sexual function. It is also responsible for the production of cortisol, which regulates glucose levels and inflammation of tissue.

The adrenal medulla produces hormones that help the body cope with physical and emotional stress by increasing the heart rate and blood pressure.

The adrenal glands are related to the Root Chakra. The adrenal glands are intimately involved with our absorbtion of vital pranic life force energy in the ethers all around us. This prana restores our adrenal glands, keeping them vital.

Balanced, healthy adrenal glands will help us stay grounded, feel vitality, feel calmly focused and alert, provide support to our parasympathetic nervous system whose job is to restore our body, and allow us to take in vital life-force energy from the ethers. The adrenal glands are located just underneath the 11th and 12th ribs (the last 2 ribs) on the back plus a little bit beyond the ribs and about 1/3 of the way out from the spine.

The Coccyx (tailbone) consists of 4 fused vertebra and is located at the end of the spinal column and resonate with the adrenal glands.

This section of the spine resonates with the Adrenals/Coccyx tuning fork frequency. Spinal nerves, bone, tissue and fluids can be favorably affected by this frequency.

GOD is not a person. That is one of the greatest misunderstandings, and it has prevailed so long that it has become almost a fact. Even if a lie is repeated continuously for centuries it is bound to appear as if it is a truth.
God is a presence, not a person. Prayerful is needed, not prayer. There is nobody to pray to; there is no possibility of any dialogue between you and God. Dialogue is possible only between two persons, and God is not a person but a presence – like beauty, like joy.
God simply means godliness. It is because of this fact that Buddha denied the existence of God. He wanted to emphasize that God is a quality, an experience – like love. You cannot talk to love, you can live it. You need not create temples of love, you need not make statues of love, and bowing down to those statues will be just nonsense. And that’s what has been happening in the churches, in the temples, in the mosques.
Man has lived under this impression of God as a person, and then two calamities have happened through it. One is the so-called religious man, who thinks God is somewhere above the sky and you have to praise him, to persuade him to confer favors on you, to help you to fulfill your desires, to make your ambitions succeed, to give you the wealth of this world AND of the other world. And this is sheer wastage of time and energy.
And on the opposite pole the people who saw the stupidity of it all became atheists; they started denying the existence of God. They were right in a sense, but they were also wrong. They started denying not only the personality of God, they started to deny even the experience of God.
The theist is wrong, the atheist is wrong, and man needs a new vision so that he can be freed from both the prisons.
God is the ultimate experience of silence, of beauty, of bliss, a state of inner celebration. Once you start looking at God as godliness there will be a radical change in your approach. Then prayer is no more valid; meditation becomes valid.
Martin Buber says prayer is a dialogue; then between you and God there is an ”I-thou” relationship – the duality persists. Buddha is far closer to the truth: you simply drop all chattering of the mind, you slip out of the mind like a snake slipping out of the old skin. You become profoundly silent. There is no question of any dialogue, no question of any monologue either. Words have disappeared from your consciousness. There is no desire for which favors have to be asked, no ambition to be fulfilled.
One is now and here. In that tranquility, in that calmness, you become aware of a luminous quality to existence. Then the trees and the mountains and the rivers and the people are all surrounded with a subtle aura. They are all radiating life, and it is one life in different forms. The flowering of one existence in millions of forms, in millions of flowers.
THIS experience is God. And it is everybody’s birthright, because whether you know it or not you are already part of it. The only possibility is you may not recognize it or you may recognize it.
The difference between the enlightened person and the unenlightened person is not of quality – they both are absolutely alike. There is only one small difference: that the enlightened person is aware; he recognizes the ultimate pervading the whole, permeating the whole, vibrating, pulsating.
He recognizes the heartbeat of the universe. He recognizes that the universe is not dead, it is alive. This aliveness is God!
The unenlightened person is asleep, asleep and full of dreams. Those dreams function as a barrier; they don’t allow him to see the truth of his own reality. And, of course, when you are not even aware of your own reality, how can you be aware of the reality of others? The first experience has to happen within you. Once you have seen the light within you will be able to see it everywhere.
God has to be freed from all concepts of personality. Personality is a prison. God has to be freed from any particular form; only then he can have all the forms. He has to be freed from any particular name so that all the names become his.
Then a person LIVES in prayer – he does not pray, he does not go to the temple, to the church. Wherever he sits he is prayerful, whatsoever he is doing is prayerful, and in that prayerfulness he creates his temple. He is always moving with his temple surrounding him. Wherever he sits the place becomes sacred, whatsoever he touches becomes gold. If he is silent then his silence is golden; if he speaks then his song is golden. If he is alone his aloneness is divine; if he relates then his relating is divine.
The basic, the most fundamental thing is to be aware of your own innermost core, because that is the secret of the whole existence. That’s where the Upanishads are tremendously important.
They don’t talk about a God, they talk about godliness. They don t bother about prayer. their whole emphasis is on meditation.
Meditation has two parts: the beginning and the end. The beginning is called dhyana and the end is called samadhi. Dhyana is the seed, samadhi is the flowering. Dhyana means becoming aware of all workings of your mind, all the layers of your mind – your memories, your desires, your thoughts, dreams – becoming aware of all that goes on inside you.
Dhyana is awareness, and samadhi is when the awareness has become so deep, so profound, so total that it is like a fire and it consumes the whole mind and all its functioning. It consumes thoughts, desires, ambitions, hopes, dreams. It consumes the whole stuff the mind is full of.
Samadhi is the state when awareness is there, but there is nothing to be aware inside you; the witness is there, but there is nothing to be witnessed.
Begin with dhyana, with meditation, and end in samadhi, in ecstasy, and you will know what God is. It is not a hypothesis, it is an experience. You have to LIVE it – that is the only way to know it.

Method to stimulate each of the 7 Chakras

Chakras or our body’s energy centers have been identified in different ancient cultures like the Indian and Greeks. They are key to the flow of energy that vitalizes the physical body and brings about the development of our self-consciousness. The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column and each of these seven chakras is associated with different auras (energies) from our environment, people around us, sounds and colors. Let see them one by one in detail, which help everyone to stimulate there vital chakras energy.

1. Muladhara - Root Chakra:

The 1st chakra is also referred to as the "root" chakra. The Sanskrit name for it is "muladhara" which means root/base. It is located at the base of the spine. There is an energy stored under this chakra which is often referred to as the "coiled serpent." Kundalini yoga focuses on stimulating this energy.

Governs vigor, heredity ,survival, security ,passion , trust, feet, & legs. Your relationship with money, home, and job.

Known as: Root Chakra ,Muladhara , Kundalini

Muladhara = Base (mula - root adhara - support), Foundation.

Location: Base of Spine, at the tailbone base of spine

Colors: red, black

Earth Element, Mineral kingdom, Bones, Flesh, Skin, Nadis and Hairs of the Body.

Attributes: Patience and Greed.

Desire: Survival.

Activity: Collecting and Saving.

Sense: Smell

Deities: Each Chakra has a Manifestation of the Shiva and Shakti Deities. Baby Brahma - Ever watchful creator, brings peace of mind and calms fears. Dakini Shakti - Protectress, Creator, Preserver, Destroyer. Alravata the Elephant - Vehicle of the Bija Mantra-Lam, Searches for food and takes orders.

Symbol: Yellow Yantra Square, surrounded by Four Red Petals represents the Four Directions of Earth.

Mudra for Root Chakra: Let the tips of your thumb and index finger touch.
Concentrate on the Root chakra at the spot in between the genitals and the anus.

Chant the sound LAM.

Mantra: Repetition of Bijan Mantra-Vam, opens up blocks in the lower body. Each petal has a Sanskrit letter (Varn, Sarn, Sharn, Sxarn). Kundalini Shakti lies coiled like a snake in a downward pointing triangle. Meditation of the 1st Chakra awakens the Kundalini and starts the upward flow.

Yoga Poses for Root Chakra:

  • Lying flat on your back, hands palm down by your sides, bend your knees and bring your feet close to your bottom making sure your feet are parallel on the yoga mat.
  • Pressing your feet firmly against the ground, lift your hips up towards the ceiling.
  • Interlace your fingers under you, straighten your arms and press them down on the to mat to raise your back and chest higher.
  • Roll your shoulders and draw your chest towards your chin.
  • Stay and breath
  • Release the pose, by releasing your hands back into the palm down position beside you, then bringing the your upper, middle then lower back and hips down. Knees are still bent
  • Allow your knees to touch and rest

Life & Death in Somali

About 750,000 people could die in East Africa over the next four months due to famine, if enough aid didn't reach the famine-stricken region, the UN has warned.

According to the UN, about 12 million people across the region, and four million in Somalia alone, are in need of food aid, Daily Mail reported.

Getting aid to the starving is a 'race against time', said a top humanitarian official for Somalia, while also warning that the famine is likely to spread before the end of the year.

Mark Bowden, who heads the UN office coordinating humanitarian aid to Somalia, said: "This isn't a short-term crisis."

There are fears as many as 750,000 people could starve to death. This is a rise of 66 percent from July. Hundreds of Somalis are dying every day, at least half of which are children.Bowden said the four million Somalis in need of aid represented more than half of the country's entire population.The southern Bay region is the latest to be declared a famine zone.Nearly 60 per cent of people there are acutely malnourished - four times the rate at which an emergency is declared.

"I've not seen anything like it," said Grainne Moloney, the head of the food security unit.

Famine has now affected six areas, including four southern Somali regions and two settlements of refugees.

The UN says tens of thousands of people already have died in Somalia due to the severe violence, drought and famine.Over 150,000 refugees have sought aid in the last few months. Families in Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti have also been affected.

Brain and Spinal Cord - Nervous System

We discuss here about our nervous system, which is the one which the network which connects many things, which are not understood by us, to understand the secret behind this we need to go deep into our Nervous System, which can give us more information about us and also our connection to this universe.

Nervous System:

The nervous system is an organ system containing a network of specialized cells called neurons that coordinate the actions of an animal and transmit signals between different parts of its body.

The human nervous system has two main divisions, the central nervous system (CNS), and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), which includes the somatic motor nervous system, and the sensory nervous system. The CNS consists of the brain and spinal cord.

The central nervous system of vertebrates (such as humans) contains the brain, spinal cord, and retina.

The brain is made up of many cells, but the neurons are the primary players in brain functions. There are 100 Billion neurons in the brain. A typical neuron has about 1,000 to 10,000 synapses (that is, it communicates with many other neurons, muscle cells, glands, etc.). It has been estimated that there are 1 quadrillion synapses in the human brain.

The peripheral nervous system consists of sensory neurons, clusters of neurons called ganglia, and nerves connecting them to each other and to the central nervous system.

Neurons send signals to other cells as electrochemical waves travelling along thin fibers called axons, which cause chemicals called neurotransmitters to be released at junctions called synapses. A cell that receives a synaptic signal may be excited, inhibited, or otherwise modulated. Sensory neurons are activated by physical stimuli impinging on them, and send signals that inform the central nervous system of the state of the body and the external environment. Motor neurons, situated either in the central nervous system or in peripheral ganglia, connect the nervous system to muscles or other effector organs. Central neurons, which in vertebrates greatly out number the other types, make all of their input and output connections with other neurons. The interactions of all these types of neurons form neural circuits that generate an organism's perception of the world and determine its behavior. Along with neurons, the nervous system contains other specialized cells called glial cells (or simply glia), which provide structural and metabolic support.

Here I have given the simple explanation regarding the nervous system and the neurons. Its purely the science, now we are going to combine our science into our world of meditation, to know more secrets.

Secret in Breathing - Nadis

Nad's means movement. In the Rig Veda, it means stream. In Yoga, nadis are the channels of Kundalini energy. The Nadis thus are channels, but not only nerves (snayu). The subtle channels or Nadis are the channels of mind and the channels of chitta, the feeling self or being. The gross channels of subtle energy are visible as cords, vessels or tubes, including acupuncture meridians, nerves, muscles, arteries, veins, lymph,... When an aspirant of Kundalini Yoga starts activating the Kundalini energy through various kinds of pranayamas, the nadi system is vitalized. This is not only very good for health, it also very much promotes spiritual growth and understanding.

Ayurveda mentions 72.000 different Nadis. Tantra Yoga identifies 14 principal nadis of which the following three are the most important :

Sushumna: Passes through the spinal column, originating in the Muladhara Chakra and terminating in the Sahasrara Chakra, diving in an anterior and posterior branch before reaching the Ajna Chakra. The Sushumna generally remains dormant when the other Nadis flow strongly and is activated only when the breath comes through both nostrils simultaneously. It can also
be activated through pranayama and Swar Yoga and operates automatically at dawn and dusk, calming down the system and making meditation easy.

Ida: The Ida Nadi starts and ends to the left of the Sushumna, but is also connected with the left testicle in males. It terminates in the left nostril, stimulating the right side of the brain. It is feminine in energy, carries pranic energy and is one of the most important mental nadis. As it nourishes and purifies the body and the mind, it is also called Ganga in Tantric scriptures. When Sushumna is not working, activating the Ida Nadi is the best way to facilitate meditation.

Pingala: The Pingala Nadi starts and ends to the right of Sushumna. It is the carrier of solar, male energy, adding vitality, physical strength and efficiency. It is also purifying like Ida Nadi, but cleansing like fire. It is activated by the breath in the right nostril where it stimulates the left side of the brain. Bhedana pranayama is used to activate this nadi and is recommended for physical activities, debates and, indeed, duels.

The remaining of the 14 principal nadis are Gandhari, Hastajihva, Yashasvini, Pusha, Alambusha, Kuhu, Shankini, Sarasvati, Payasvini, Varuni, Vishvodara.

The Kuhu Nadi for example causes ejaculation together with the Chitrini Nadi. The mastering of this nadi is the main objective of the Vajrauli exercise, allowing the male aspirant to raise the seminal fluid from the second chakra to the Soma Chakra within the Sahasrara Chakra, along with the vaginal fluid from his female counterpart. It is this practice which is often known as Tantric Sex, which created a lot of attraction to Tantra in the West.

Secret Of Breathing - Subtle body

The subtle body complex extends into several dimensions of reality. It is composed of a series of energetic forms that may be analyzed for a variety of imbalances.

The Astral Form: This body resides within the second dimension. It is the form that we reside within for more than one third of our lives. It is the dream vessel. The health and well being of this form is crucial for the health and well being of the physical body. It is responsible for the health of the emotional and nervous systems of the physical body.

The Etheric Form: This body moves freely within the spaces between the second, third, and fourth dimensions of reality. It is responsible for sustaining the integrity of the physical form. It acts as a conduit for the distribution of life force from the higher mental body and the light body form.

The Mental Body: This body exists in two energy states, the higher mental body and the lower mental body. It is responsible for the stable flow of mental energy from the higher mind to the lower mind. As such, the structure, function, and variety of our thoughts is heavily dependent upon the sound functioning of this body.

The Subtle-Light Body: This body is largely dormant on the physical level in most people. It is however extremely important in our evolutionary growth potential. It contains more than 95% of our genetic, physical, emotional, and mental energy. The other bodies use the remaining 5% of that energy. As this bodies becomes active on the physical level, all areas of our health and well being tend to improve significantly.

These are the four main areas of the subtle body. In our complete, state of the art analysis of the health of your subtle body, we perform also perform a full analysis of the following energetic structures:

Major and minor chakras: The chakras control the flow of energy from the subtle-light body into the lower bodies.

The Nadis: The nadis control the flow of energy from one energy body to the next

Prana: simply put, prana is life force. We have five different types of prana and each type is responsible for a separte function within the body. The five types of life force are, apana, prana, samana, upana, and vyana.

Tattwas: the tattwas are the elements that make up the body, earth, air, fire, water, and ether. A proper balance between these elements is necessary for the health of the body.

The Ether: The Ether is an important aspect of the makeup of the body. Ether is a precursor to the elemental energy that makes up the body. There are as such several different types of ether: gaseous ether, liquid ether, solid ether, and etheric ether. Weakness or imbalance in any of these areas of the subtle tends to lead to illness.

Secret in Breathing

There are basically two breathing techniques. Natural breathing. A relaxing technique that utilizes and maximizes the oxygen that we take in. The important thing to look for is a bulging of the belly when you breathe in, especially about six centimeters below the belly button. Unnatural breathing. Here, you use your lungs to take deep, powerful breaths. In line with the yin-yang balance, this hard type of breathing balances out the soft natural breathing. It is used to detoxify the body. This cleansing technique can be used only during daylight.

‘The body measures 96 fingers (about 1 metre 80 cm). When exhaling, the stream of air roundly measures 12 fingers (20 cm from nose to hand). When singing, its length increases to 16 fingers; when walking, to 24 fingers; when sleeping, to 30 fingers; during sexual intercourse, to 36 fingers. During strenuous exercises, to even more. By gradually shortening the natural length of exhalation, we increase our vitality, whereas lengthening the exhalation reduces vitality.’

All our body’s cells require oxygen for proper function. A lack of oxygen is particularly harmful to the cells of the heart and brain. Also, lower oxygen levels causes the right side of the heart to work much harder to pump blood through the lungs. Deficiency of oxygen at the cellular level will eventually allow disease to jump in. Is it any wonder people are thinking of oxygen therapy to offset internal oxygen deficiencies.

A key to longevity is high up in the nasal pharynx. It is a rich source of nitric oxide and the flow of air through the nose allows it to get into the body. Because this causes dilation of the arteries the blood flows more freely. Good circulation is essential for young looking skin and a lack of nitric oxide causes premature aging. It is interesting to note that a Dr Charles Farr, a strong supporter of the intravenous use of oxygen therapy has shown that hydrogen peroxide can also dilate arteries and increase blood flow by stimulating certain enzyme systems in the body.

Inside every human being there is a network of nerves and sensory organs that interprets the outside physical world.
At the same time, within us resides a subtle system of channels (nadis) and centers of energy (chakras) which look after our physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual being.

Each of the seven chakras has several spiritual qualities. These qualities are intact within us, and even though they might not always be manifest, they can never be destroyed.

When the Kundalini is awakened, these qualities start manifesting spontaneously and express themselves in our life.

Thus, through regular meditation, we become automatically very dynamic, creative, confident and at the same time very humble, loving and compassionate. It is a process which starts to develop by itself when the Kundalini rises and starts to nourish our chakras.
