Awaken Your Third Eye (in 5 minutes)

 

Great visual and audio meditation. See deeper into the world you live in and walk upon. The Third Eye closes over time if not used. Everything from the day-to-day stress of life, pressure from others that do not walk the same path, distractions such as media, developmental stages and the traps and basically data overload from all of the information we are barraged with on a daily basis. Billboards, cars passing us or us passing them, colors, sound, smells, they all are recorded in the vast database we call our brain. Deep inside of that brain are many areas that have many capabilities.

“There is a Hindu tantric saying, nādevo devam arcayet, ‘by none but a god shall a god be worshipped.’ The deity of one’s worship is a function of one’s own state of mind. But it is also a product of one’s culture. Catholic nuns do not have visions of the Buddha, nor do Buddhist nuns have visions of Christ. Ineluctably, the image of any god beheld—whether interpreted as beheld in heaven or as beheld at çakra 6–will be of a local ethnic idea historically conditioned, a metaphor, therefore, and thus to be recognized as transparent to transcendence. Remaining fixed to its form, whether with simple faith or in saintly vision, is therefore to remain in mind historically bound and attached to an appearance.” – Joseph Campbell

One of those places allows us to see deeper into everything and gives us a deeper understanding of what we are seeing. That place is “the third eye.” It is a conduit to “the source,” or “the universe.” The ancient being that you are is accessible only through this portal. We lose connection to this ancient self, that is us, as we grow into young children and start mimicking what we see and hear, and over time, the years of our youth and sometimes beyond, we close that eye that allows us to look deep inward, and without even noticing, we begin to only see outwards.

But, there are those of us who seek to see clearly, and have understanding for the self and the world. Opening the third eye once again, and allowing once again the magic and curiosity that once was part of our lives and is vital to us all.

The “third eye,” or pineal gland, is located at the center of our mind, and can be activated by certain frequencies, and that is the foundation of this music/soundscape; that particular frequency. I have studied the affects of different frequencies on our bodies and minds for over thirty years and have found that sound waves of certain frequencies can alter the frequency patterns in our brains. Patterns caused mostly by external stimuli, can shift into “not so healthy” frequencies and cause depression, lethargy, etc.. Opening/stimulating the “third eye” can allow us to see much deeper into the world around us, and give us far more understanding of it. It can enhance empathy, compassion and understanding. With no one else around, relax, dim the lights, and listen to and watch this video (preferably with headphones). Watch it more than once, watch it daily over a period of a week and you will start to see different patterns in the visuals. The patterns are along the same lines as “The Rorschach test” (inkblot test) which is a psychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed. You can understand a lot about an individual, or yourself, based on the perception you have of the inkblot imagery. Same with the imagery in this video; what do you see, what images dominate, stand out? This can give you an understanding of your perception of the world you live in. Perception creates attitude, attitude becomes character. Who you are is based firmly in how you perceive the world around you. By opening/stimulating the third eye, you can look deeper into yourself and your world.

(excerpt from Wiki) The third eye (the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. In Theosophy it is related to the pineal gland. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.

15 Minute Chakra – Tuning, Meditation and Balancing

Clear the negativity from your self and your life with this beautiful Chakra tuning music, colors and visuals.

The audio frequencies and colors in this video are for meditating and tuning all the Chakras daily.  All seven Chakra in one video for daily meditation, tuning, healing and balancing of all Chakras.

Watch or listen to this video in the evening before bedtime, in the morning when you awake, or at any time of the day when you feel the need to relax, recharge or retune your being.

Personally I sometimes listen while doing my Yoga, and sometimes I watch and listen meditatively.

Note: Finger cymbals' ring between each segment to allow you to recompose yourself for a moment before the next segment starts.

We can't all live in the Himalayas, and let's face it, stress is in our lives and there is little time to get in tune with the world around us, the natural world we rush past. There is a solution though, and you are here because you know that solution: tuning and aligning the 7 Chakras, the "spinning wheels of energy."

Balance can return into your otherwise chaotic life. Face it, humans are not supposed to live this way, totally detached from the natural world, shut off from reality. But we can have that contact again, for what are we ourselves if not natural beings? Getting in touch, in tune with your natural self, is within your grasp.

We, like all natural things, from the smallest single celled entity, to the universe itself, resonate on a frequency, exist within a frequency. And as with all natural things, different parts of us resonate at slight variations of that frequency.

We can get "out of tune" like a musical instrument, and in being out of tune, the world around us can seem resistant, and indeed it is. But in tune, with all our parts harmonizing with the other parts, suddenly the world itself will be in sync with us. Your drive down the freeway will feel different, standing in line, work; everything will feel different.

Like the strings of a harp, if they are not in tune, in the proper pitch, they will vibrate like an unbalanced wheel; but tuned, in the proper pitch, the strings will vibrate smoothly, waves touch each other, crossing over each other and back again, like fluid, like water in a stream passing softly over the pebbles it encounters along its path.

Chakras are wheels of energy, and they must be balanced. This video will help you find that balance. You can't just balance one, you must balance them all if you are to find synchronicity within yourself and the world around you.

The seven Chakras:

1: Muladhara or Root Chakra
2: Svadisthana or Sacral Chakra
3: Manipura or Solar Plexus Chakra
4: Anahata or Heart Chakra
5: Vishuddha or Throat Chakra
6: Ajna or The Brow (Third Eye) Chakra
7: Sahasrara or Crown Chakra

Enjoy.

I have had many people ask me if there was a place to buy the CD or digital downloads of the music from the Chakra video series. After remastering and new cover art design, it is finally a reality. "Chakra" the CD and digital downloads now available:

Samsara: Continuous Flow

Samsāra (Sanskrit: संसार) (in Tibetan called "khorwa"), literally meaning "continuous flow", is the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth (reincarnation) within Hinduism, Buddhism, Bön, Jainism, Yoga and Sikhism.
 
According to the view of these Indian religions our current life is only one of many—stretching back before birth into past existences and reaching forward beyond death into future incarnations. During the course of each life the quality of the actions (karma) performed determine the future destiny of each person. The Buddha taught that there is no beginning or end to this cycle. The goal of Indian religions is to escape this process, the achievement of which is called moksha.
 
In popular use, Samsara may refer to the world (in the sense of the various worldly activities which occupy ordinary human beings), the various sufferings thereof; or the unsettled and agitated mind through which reality is perceived.

The Garden

Several months ago I had seven seeds in my hand.  I didn't really know what to do with them, so I just tossed them into the dirt along my path.  I came back through there a few months later, and the seeds had taken root and flourished into the most beautiful flowers.  I admired them, and then moved on along my path.  Today, I came through, and they were spreading and growing far more beautiful still.  I decided to water them, and perhaps someday it will be a beautiful garden, filled with many flowers, birds and animals for all to enjoy.  I named that garden Taos Winds, and we will live in that garden, and tend it, and with it, we will grow.

A day hike near Santa Fe

A beautiful video of the Santa Fe National Forest created by Brent Hall of Light Benders Visuals in Albuquerque featuring "Seasons" by Taos Winds.


 

Some very impromptu footage I shot while hiking near Santa Fe with my wife and son this weekend. Nothing planned, no assistance or support equipment, all hand held and spur-of-the-moment. We were kind of on a photo shoot, and I just started filming everything instead.

Excellent video of the aspens and mountains around Santa Fe with the beautiful Fall colors!

Shot with a Canon 5D Mk III and a 60D. Edited with Premiere CS6.

The song is called Seasons, by Taos Winds. If you like it, check out the site:

"Meditation" by Taos Winds

Who Was Buddha?

Gautama Buddha or Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher from the Indian subcontinent, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.
 
The word Buddha is a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age, "Buddha" meaning "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." Gautama Buddha may also be referred to as Śākyamuni.
 
Gautama taught a Middle Way compared to the severe asceticism found in the Sramana (renunciation) movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kośala.
 
Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism, and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition, and first committed to writing about 400 years later.


Traditional biographies of Gautama generally include numerous miracles, omens, and supernatural events. The character of the Buddha in these traditional biographies is often that of a fully transcendent (Skt. lokottara) and perfected being who is unencumbered by the mundane world. In the Mahāvastu, over the course of many lives, Gautama is said to have developed supramundane abilities including: a painless birth conceived without intercourse; no need for sleep, food, medicine, or bathing, although engaging in such "in conformity with the world"; omniscience, and the ability to "suppress karma". Nevertheless, some of the more ordinary details of his life have been gathered from these traditional sources. In modern times there has been an attempt to form a secular understanding of Siddhārtha Gautama's life by omitting the traditional supernatural elements of his early biographies.

It is important to stress that, despite modern Theravada teachings to the contrary (often a sop to skeptical Western pupils), he was never seen as being merely human. For instance, he is often described as having the thirty-two major and eighty minor marks or signs of a mahāpuruṣa, "superman"; the Buddha himself denied that he was either a man or a god; and in the Mahāparinibbāna Sutta he states that he could live for an aeon were he asked to do so.

According to the early Buddhist texts, after realizing that meditative jhana was the right path to awakening, but that extreme asceticism didn't work, Gautama discovered what
Buddhists call the Middle Way—a path of moderation away from the extremes of self-indulgence and self-mortification. In a famous incident, after becoming starved and weakened, he is said to have accepted milk and rice pudding from a village girl named Sujata. Such was his emaciated appearance that she wrongly believed him to be a spirit that had granted her a wish.

Following this incident, Gautama was famously seated under a pipal tree—now known as the Bodhi tree—in Bodh Gaya, India, when he vowed never to arise until he had found the truth. Kaundinya and four other companions, believing that he had abandoned his search and become undisciplined, left. After a reputed 49 days of meditation, at the age of 35, he is said to have attained Enlightenment. According to some traditions, this occurred in approximately the fifth lunar month, while, according to others, it was in the twelfth month. From that time, Gautama was known to his followers as the Buddha or "Awakened One" ("Buddha" is also sometimes translated as "The Enlightened One"). He is often referred to in Buddhism as Shakyamuni Buddha, or "The Awakened One of the Shakya Clan."

According to Buddhism, at the time of his awakening he realized complete insight into the cause of suffering, and the steps necessary to eliminate it. These discoveries became known as the "Four Noble Truths", which are at the heart of Buddhist teaching. Through mastery of these truths, a state of supreme liberation, or Nirvana, is believed to be possible for any being. The Buddha described Nirvāna as the perfect peace of a mind that's free from ignorance, greed, hatred and other afflictive states, or "defilements" (kilesas). Nirvana is also regarded as the "end of the world", in that no personal identity or boundaries of the mind remain. In such a state, a being is said to possess the Ten Characteristics, belonging to every Buddha.

After his awakening, the Buddha debated whether or not he should teach the Dharma to others. He was concerned that humans were so overpowered by ignorance, greed and hatred that they could never recognise the path, which is subtle, deep and hard to grasp.

Sacred Sky ~ Taos Winds (HD)

Beautiful cloud time lapses featuring the music of Taos Winds.

A kaleidoscope time lapse of clouds in the New Mexico sky.

The video is filled with so much imagery you could watch it over and over and would never see it all.  It also has the feel of the Rorschach test (inkblot tests), so your own perception is a great factor in the imagery you will see.  Another, very important factor is the music.  Music is such a powerful influence on how we feel about what we are seeing.  Which in turn, alters what we see.

Journey beneath the waves…  Journey into the unconscious self… What will you find there?

I originally composed this song for a play title "Urashima Tarō and the Shadow Dragon," about a young man from a Japanese fishing village who had a debilitating fear of the water because he lost his father to the sea.  A fear so strong he could not go out on the fishing boats, and had to fish from the shore.  One day he saved a giant turtle from a group of children who were torturing it, and the turtle rewards him by taking him deep into the sea to the Palace of the Dragon. 

In the play, which was a variation on the original Japanese story, he fears the water because it is the unconscious self, but by journeying there he empowers himself as he overcomes his fear of the underwater world, and of the dragon who resides there as well.

In the original story, Urashima Tarō spends three days in the underwater world, but when he returns to his village, 300 years have passed.
