Kundalini and the Mind 

The traditional way for preparing for Kundalini involves yoga, meditation, diet and such.  However, there is another kind of preparation that is not prescribed in any text or teaching but which will, I believe, much enhance the overall process, because it will provide a secure foundation on which to build a Kundalini experience.  This (preliminary) path is that of the mind, and should included consideration of certain fundamental concepts and universal notions basic to understanding the environment in which one finds oneself.  What follows is a list of the ideas occupying my own psyche in the period before awakening occurred.  These are not necessarily the concepts that another might explore, for there are many configurations of such mental topics.  But one can only follow the mind to a certain point, and at that juncture the mind must give way to the experience of embodied wisdom, as Kundalini enters and transforms the self. I will simply list my own preoccupations here, and explore some more fully in later entries.

Reality vs. Illusion
Multiple Angles of Vision Producing
“Simultaneous Reality,” Depending on the Observer
The Metaphoric View:  This = That, Where
Truth Resides in the Nexus
Superimposition Leading to Superperception
Reality as Process, not Fixity; Flow, not Stasis
Principles of Contrast
Dialectical Unity of Opposites, as:
(Hormonal levels, etc., create a spectrum)
     (Even machines cannot always tell)
      (The perennial issue of the philosophers)
A Self-Enclosed System
A Self-Validating Concept
Rhythm vs. Beat (Pattern vs. Item)
Cognition as Possible Only Through Contrast
The Heisenberg Principle  (on Oneness of the
Observer and the Observed)
Duality, Twinning
(Thus, there are two ways of completing the self--one, by choosing its opposite, as in heterosexual relationship, finds its complement; the other, by choosing its likeness, repeats, stresses, emphasizes the pattern, bringing out its essential completeness through highlights and contrasts. It is as if the two figures, in juxtaposition, move closer to and are superimposed one upon the other.  When the two figures are of the same sex, what was shadow with the opposite sex becomes light, and what was secondary asserts itself as primary.  [For example, the female can express her active nature more easily, the male his receptivity.  Now each partner explores and expresses that part of sexual identity hitherto left to the mate who was contra.  Perhaps this phenomenon may be likened to the patterns of laser beams in holography, where interference at one level brings out an added dimension at another.])
