Basic Esoteric/Tantric Principles - For the Benefit of Any Individuals Seeking To Raise Awareness
I noticed from my Atlantis thread, that a lot of individuals here seem to be asking questions such as:

1) Who am I?
2) How do I find my soul group?
3) Who was I in past lives?
4) Where should I begin on the path?


Seeing that, I thought it would be nice to put together a few simple concepts/practices/principles that my teacher ingrained into my being, or put forth into my hands.

These are things that ANYONE can incorporate into their life, irregardless of religious/financial/spiritual/geographic or other circumstances/preferences. They are UNIVERSAL principles that anyone can apply.

The goal of Tantra is to raise your awareness. Having said that.....here we go:


Number ONE: The first principle of Tantra, is the principle of using what works. It is a very simple principle, but the FIRST and FOREMOST underlying principle that I was taught as an initiated, tantric mystic.

Whatever benefits you in life, UTILIZE. Whatever holds you back, or drains you, or causes disharmony in your life, ELIMINATE.

So, a simple beginners exercise to determine what side something in your life belongs to, you can take a sheet a paper. Fold the paper in half, hotdog style. On one side of the paper, write "Things that Give me energy" On the other side of the paper, write down "Things that DRAIN my energy"

Now, go ahead and list ANYTHING that comes to mind, on one side or the other. People, Places, Memories, Beliefs, Foods, Circumstances, Music, hobbies, jobs, ETC , ETC , ETC


The purpose behind this exercise, is to get your started in your awareness of how ENERGY works, and how everything in life is an energy exchange. The more conscious you become of this , the more aware you become of your thoughts, actions, and interactions with people, places, or things in this lifetime.

It gets your awareness tingling, and if you make this list every now and then, and determine to be mindful of it - you slowly but surely start to awaken to the grand energy exchange that Life itself is.

From there - you will make the REAL choices, that will allow you to expend less energy, and reap more rewards in this life, thus allowing you to actually manifest the reality you want for yourself.





Number TWO: Everything is ENERGY.

Most people know this, I surely did before I ever met my teacher. But, how many people LIVE it?

First of all, if you don't believe everything in existance is energy, I suggest you undertake studying quantum physics. Every single person that has an interest in spirituality, science, and/or Life itself - should learn the basics of the sciences, and even learn the concepts behind quantum physics.

E=MC2, remember? Matter is just energy, vibrating slower than the speed of light.

From a mystic or spiritual perspective - everything is energy. You are energy, and this planet you are on is energy. The universe is nothing but energy.

What good does this do for you to know this? A LOT. Knowing that everything is energy, you then start to put the pieces together, and you realize what are the different types of energy available in my world. When you start to become aware of the more subtle energy currents that run through this planet, and your body - then you can actually make changes in your life that most people aren't able to . This gives you more access to your life - kind of like unlocking the MASTER control panel. OR, like unlocking cheat codes for your life.


Number THREE. Everything works in cycles.

Another very simple, yet extremely important principle we function on. Everything in existence works in cycles. The seasons, the moon cycles, The earth revolving around our Sun.....Civilizations coming and going....soul groups coming to earth, then graduating......A seed, sprouting , becoming a plant, going back to the Earth. Birth, Growth, Decay, Death.

When you understand this , you understand that nothing is linear, like the western paradigm forced us to believe since early age. Most mystics, and all tantric practitioners, incorporate this into their everyday life. We learn, for instance, that if we create negative karma for ourselves, or make a mistake, it is only a matter of time before the lesson cycles before us again, and we need to learn it. We also learn, how to use the cycles of the Moon, and the seasons, for our benefit in our life.

The way our minds work themselves, work in cycles, and we understand this.



Number FOUR. The simple practices of Mindfulness and Meditation.

Anyone in life , wanting to achieve ANYTHING, or simply to live ANY sort of life, with ANY quality in it - can greatly benefit and enrich their lives, with the simple practices of mindfulness and meditation.

Mindfulness and meditation are like yin and yang. They are opposites, in their own way.

Generally, meditation is done DAILY, in order to reap true benefits, either in the morning or night. Meditation can be viewed as "recharging your battery"

All day, between your external and inner circumstances, you are expending your energy, releasing your energy, and focusing your awareness on thousands of different emotions, thoughts, and other cycles you go through. Meditation simply re-focuses your WHOLE BEING into a single point, so that all of your energies can return to their Source, and your very soul, and being on EVERY level can re-charge itself.


Mindfulness - is USING the battery and being conscious of it. After you build up a practice of meditation, you can now take that single-pointed awareness you've developed, and focus it on ANYTHING YOU LIKE, IN YOUR ENTIRE UNIVERSE. This is mindfulness.

Incorporate these two practices into your life, and as I said, your life will be greatly enhanced and enjoyable. You will become a more complete, and happier human being.


Number FIVE. Whatever Stance you Take to the Universe, It Takes Back to You.


This is something that was DRILLED into my head, in the early years of my practice. My teacher taught , and GOD how RIGHT SHE WAS, that whatever stance you take to the universe, it always takes back to you.

Stop and think about what this means for a moment, because I assure you, any one of these lessons alone can drastically change your life, especially this one.

What this means, is that however you choose to go through life, Life mirrors your choice and feeds it back to you.

For instance, if you choose to be uncooperative with Life, it does the same for you.

If you choose NOT to believe in something, then the universe blocks the energy of that reality/gift/curse or whatever it is, for you.

if you CHOOSE to believe in something, the universe empowers that things, whatever it is, and makes it so real in your universe.

Whatever thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, actions, etc that you hold on to you, the universe reflects these realities back to you.


Therefore, BE AWARE of the stance you take in life. Become aware of WHO YOU ARE. So many people are liars. They lie to themselves, and others - and they never get even CLOSE to who they are. They choose to wrap themselves in a cacoon of positive thoughts about themselves, thinking they are a GOOD PERSON, and negative thoughts about others, thinking others are just STUPID, FOOLISH /MINDLESS people. How wrong they are! The universe will only reflect that attitude back to you - and it creates a vicious cycle!


Whatever you want out of Life itself, keep that in mind. Then, be aware of who you are, be HONEST with yourself, and you will realize that your VERY life is an open source project, between YOU, and what is OUTSIDE of you, ie - The universe!




These 5 principles are just some of the thousands of principles/concepts that were ingrained into the fibers of my being over the past decade, on a daily basis. Reading them from here is one thing - but having a teacher drill them into your head, thus becoming reality, is an entirely different thing. I suggest if you find any value in these what-so-ever - you learn to incorporate them into your life, on a daily basis. Without a teacher, I understand this can be hard - especially since we all have Egos....and trust me, our Egos WILL confuse us, be having us believe we are something, when we are something else - that is the ultimate truth of Ego - self-deception! So be careful!


I hope you all enjoy these lessons, and can make use of them in your lives.

If there is interest for further continuation of similar things I can share....I'd be more than happy to.

Love you guys,
supermarket

Hi Supermarket,

I read all of your other thread and some of it really resonated with me, thanks!

A few things that I hope you will comment on if you like.

Female, I love color. I am attracted to all things glass, crystal, light etc. stained glass, mosaic art, mica, murano, gems, crystals all of it. I also love fabrics, makeup,pottery, art and design. I was a classically trained dancer. Music sets my soul on fire. I don't fit. I have never found a career that feels quite right. I use some of my passions but it is never all there. I have many gay male friends. I get bored and restless. The fear of drowning is even more with me... like claustrophobia. I feel guilty often, but I don't know why. My heart is often heavy. I am very left brained.

Everything you said about people from Atlantis resonated with me except that I have no memory of it, NONE.

great info. I just add one thing i found extremely helpful once i actually mastered it. Master this and you can master the deepest benefit of meditation at will and within a split second.
When you meditate, have your mind totally clear.. think of nothing, without trying to think of nothing. the first time you really understand and master this , it increases your awareness massively and with it being a learnt process, you can end up being able to hit that spot at ease.
And that opens up the door for even greater experiences.

I agree with this.


I specifically didn't want to describe, or attempt to give instructions , for meditation - I just wanted to include it as a MUST for any spiritual practitioner, but I didn't want to cloud anyone's head by giving my own instructions on it. That's for another thread, another day :)

But I will say, I agree with you entirely.

Meditation is a very delicate balance, like tuning a guitar. Its the easiest thing in the world to do, BUT - we make it the hardest thing sometimes!

The trick , is to let go, without TRYING. Just relaxing , into concentrated nothingness :)

Re: Basic Esoteric/Tantric Principles - For the Benefit of Any Individuals Seeking To Raise Awareness
Thank you supermarket.
This evening your post has cleared my mind of bad feelings other people had tainted me with.

About the universe sending everything back at you, I would like to add something. Although I (think I) understand what you mean, the way you say it is not the easiest way for me to read it. In case other people are like me, I will try to say it differently.
Actually, the universe is you and you are the universe. Separation from the universe is just an illusion, a veil. That is why what is inside is like what is outside, that is why "as above so below". That is why the secret of most of your existence lies inside you, and not outside of you.
That is why, when you think someone else has got such or such bad trait, it is often yours ; when you think it is someone else's fault, you are most of the times faulty.

If you want to learn, it is much more efficient to look inside you, because your inner senses can become much more powerful that your outer ones, and because the universe secrets are all densely packed inside you.

Sometimes you can have the feeling that the universe obeys you in full, and that it exists for you and only you. Those feelings are truth, because you are the universe.

This said, it becomes obvious that "what you are doing to the universe, it deals back to you", in a more direct way than you can ever imagine. It is axiomatic, and is the very fabric of existence.

I hope I'm not betraying your words, supermarket

Thank you for the post! A long time ago I did a forgiveness meditation from a book and went to bed. I found myself awake but unable to move the next morning and then I saw a man sitting on my bed. I ran for the bedroom door then *snap* I was back in bed sitting up again. I had no clue what happened to me. I thought the ghost man sitting on my bed was causing it until I look up what was really going on. I had an out of body experience and it was so scary! Every time I went to bed I would get the frozen feeling and then I became afraid to sleep. It might be different now that I know what it is, but I had to pray to God to make it go away. I want to get back into meditating again and if I have another OBE I might be able to handle it better. I will look into this because I need something to give me more energy for sure. My family is draining with all the crazy soap opera type issues going on, but I can't give them up, lol... ya know!

I genuinely felt confused by the fellow's post, because I read it, then re-read it, and I KNOW the person resonated with my words, and wanted insight from me, into their own lives.....but for the most part, it is too hard for me to really get a feel for someone, over the internet, with just a few words typed, know what I mean?


I would LOVE, ABSOLUTELY LOVE, to meet up with some of you guys........and if some of you are on the east coast, that's definitely a reality.

There is one guy on here who I'm already making plans with to meet soon.

In person, you can read people so much better, intuitively speaking, and really make necessary 'adjustments' to help them along on their path...


In fact, tantra is really a hands on religion. Almost all religious paths , have LOTS and LOTS of scripture......but tantra has very little.

The reason is, tantra is a path of directly increasing your awareness, from teacher to student. And most of what a teacher gives you, in this path, is passed on from direct communion, direct transference.


In fact, you can just SIT in a tantric teachers presence......and thats MORE than enough to further you along on your path, no matter WHERE you at on the path.


The WORDS, are just to get your first attention, so the actual transmission can occur behind the scenes, with your second attention, if that makes sense.




I didn't really expect more replies. I would LOVE for this thread to be nice and small. Nice and simple.

It doesn't need to get bulky. Just a few pearls of wisdom, collectively, from all the genuine seekers here on GLP, would be PERFECT in my eyes ;)

I've never thought of tantra as a religion, it's more like a kind of technology.

Is there any reason you are choosing to cast it in this light as opposed to another? hmm

Wow - two people actually gave me negative karma, just because I'm elaborating on esoteric and spiritual practice. Why are people so close-minded?

How come people here occultism, or esoteric, and automatically go into protective mode, and then act like they are on a witch hunt?

Where is the religious tolerance? The freedom to practice religion as you see fit?

So long as you hurt no one, where is the harm is practicing your own religion?


Very uncool, very close-minded guys. Disagree with me all you want, but why go out of your way to put a negative spin on it?


I don't agree with a lot of things, but I don't condemn others for it. Shame, tsk tsk

Very nice thread. I will definitely be using this thread as guide. I printed it out and shared it with my family. I guess I need to work on me first. I feel like my head is so cluttered with so much of the drama of life.

I do have a question though about fasting. What effect do you think denying your body of food for a period of time have on meditation?

It's hard sometimes to know what is real. I mean, look at what has transpired in our country and in the world in the past 10 years! I guess you can say it has been a roller coaster of emotions. There is a lot of negative energy that permeates the media, internet on all sides. I love to read these conspiracy forums about different subjects, and when I see a thread like this, its like a breath of fresh air.

Thanks Man.

Just words, to me.

If anything, tantra is more like an approach. If I could REALLY term tantra, without taking away from its essence, I would say tantra is "An Approach"

Any label though, is incorrect. A label is simply a way in which we attach a term to something, so we can use that term to represent it while mentioning it to others. No labels will ever be perfect, you know?

I definitely understand where you are coming from. My teacher never referred to it as such, I guess its just a choice of word I chose in the moment.


To me, religion is a vehicle, that gets you from point A, to point B. point A refers to where you are right now, and point B refers to an awareness in which you are united with your Source.

That is MY view on religion, so in MY view, tantra is a religion. A Vehicle, to get you from point A, to point B.

However, other people have different views for what religion is, and certainly tantra would not fit in those views.


Keep in mind, though, tantra in my eyes, would be considered an open source religion. Meaning, it is not a closed system. There are no rules, laws, or set things you MUST or MUST not do.


You can call tantra a religion, a science, an art, a form of spirituality, an essence, a Way, an approach - so many different things.
