~Plane {Cosmology}~

In metaphysics and esoteric cosmology, a plane of existence (sometimes called simply a plane, dimension, vibrating plane, or an inner, invisible, spiritual, supraphysical world or egg) is a theoretical region of space and/or consciousness beyond the known physical universe, or the region containing the universe itself. Many esoteric teachings (e.g., theosophy and rosicrucianism) propound the idea of a whole series of subtle planes or worlds or dimensions which, from a center, interpenetrate themselves and the physical planet in which we live, the solar systems, and all the physical structures of the universe. This interpenetration of planes culminates in the universe itself as a physical structured, dynamic and evolutive expression emanated – through a series of stages, becoming progressively more material and embodied – from The Supreme Being: which allows from Itself the irruption of auto-Singularities, as the Big Bang, originated from Its unintelligible Chaos.

~Parinama~

Parinama is a Sanskrit term describing transformation or change, on both a philosophical and practical level. It is one of the most important ideas in “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali” and is described as the transformation which takes place when one is leaving a period of suffering or dukha.

There are other kinds of parinama, each leading to the same goal of yoga. Patanjali outlined six kinds of parinama: nirodha parinama (the suppression of the vrittis), samadhi parinama (development of samadhi), ekagrata parinama (one-pointed transformation), dharma parinama (transformation of appearance), lakshana (transformation of character) and avastha parinama (transformation of condition).

~Pratyahara~

Pratyahara is a Sanskrit term, generally translated as “withdrawal of the senses.” It is the fifth limb of Patanjali’s eightfold path of yoga, believed to be a vital preliminary step before the more advanced practices of dharana (concentration) and dhyana (meditation).

The term is derived from two Sanskrit roots; prati meaning “against” or “withdraw”, and ahara meaning “food” or referring to anything we take in from the outside. As such, pratyahara can be understood as gaining control over or withdrawing from any external influences.

The practice of pratyahara is considered to be an important bridge between the external focus of the previous limbs of yoga, such as asana (postures) and pranayama (breathwork), and the internal focus of the subsequent limbs.

Withdrawal of the senses allows the practitioner to connect with their inner world, thereby creating optimal conditions for self-realization. Pratyahara also helps to provide an understanding of how much the mind is influenced by sensory input, and to acknowledge the role of thoughts and feelings in suffering.

Poetry {63} ~ PROFANE SOCIALISATION PURITY

Entering life, neither bias, hate nor opinion

Not prone to like nor dislike anything in God’s dominion.

Socialisation generates the campaign of deformation

Demanding a certain conformity

A sameness, a certain brainless continuation

Under hateful insanity, under the guise of learning and education

Profane purity

With disinformed arrogance and bourgeoisie erudition we claim we know everything

When did we lose our purity?

When we were gifted reason?

Chanced awareness of higher realities?

Forever more embodied, yet not seen by pure eyes

When both halves are one

When darkness is none

Maybe we are here not to stay clean

Darling, no one’s soul is pure

Paradoxically we are light demure

In this world of impurity, be the pure soul and spread purity..
