in dysfunctional or neurotic patterns of incessant corruptive and alien thought.
WE WELCOME YOU HOME
You will find offerings revealing a gradual spiritual unfolding processes
Purification and gentle awakenings
Prescribed as the healing path of the Rainbow way
Experienced as a forgotten familiarity your own back home arrival
a resonance, a wholesome vibratory healing and palpable liberation
a dawning "sense" of wholeness and integrity and
A deep Re"Membering"
In this sense these processes of re-collection and unbiased *re-membering* is to re-enter the Great Gathering of Togetherness -- the Great Integrity of All Our Relations -- the Great Binding Together (mahavratam) which is identical with the process called yoga -- the activity of unrequited, spontaneous, and natural love which is synchronized in conscious harmony and integrity -- the continuous vital pulsation of a strong, open, and wide Heart. As such this is our natural unpolluted and uncontracted state whose quality is the co-mingling of bliss and love in conscious mutuality. This is where spirit and consciousness has become united with nature and beingness -- mind and body -- heaven and earth -- crown and root -- where artificial boundaries, fear, and selfishness have become utterly abandoned. This natural, but uncommon, embodied "SPIRITUALITY" in this sense is extremely simple, uncontrived, and not at all mystical nor abstract; rather it is simplicity itself, actively embracing and embodying spirit in this very life, in this very moment, "with" this very body, "through" this very body, and "in" this very body, within the inherent integrity of each cell and atom, in harmony with our very breath-- on this very planet, sun, and stars -- inter-dimensionally with all others -- complete and whole. HERE spirit permeates the body to its core as its core and from HERE then the spirit underlying All Our Relations is revealed as an Eternal Beginningless unlimited NOW -- in all our activities, deeds, words, and thoughts reflect it -- HERE -- in All Our Relations -- as a wholographic locus/focal point of infinite love-consciousness. How else can this infinite LOVE become embodied and manifest but through this very temple? How else can we participate in this living process intimately? How else can we become simultaneously complete, fulfilled, and expressive while experiencing ultimate and exquisite freedom? The one is embedded in the many. The many resides in the boundless one. The undifferentiated immeasurable space is inseparable from the myriad multi-dimensional differentiated reality. The true nature of phenomena throws light on the true nature of mind. Realizing the true nature of mind, one is enabled to see the true nature of phenomena. Underlying the phenomena is the true nature of mind... and so on. All phenomena such as the aggregates (skandha), constructed/conceptualized appearances, the ego the mind, or any thing objectified are interdependent and underscored by this same true nature.
In this sense, the vehicle and temple of sovereign original spirit without any previous origin, emanates through the inclusivity of this very body, the breath, speech, and mind inseparably -- through the spontaneous dancing prayer with love worshipping love. How else can spirit become embodied, but through this sacred bridge? This earthly body is the full spectrum Rainbow Bridge -- the conduit between two directions, which from an alienated perspective appear disparate, but for those who have traveled there, appear as a coherent unity. Nothing is left out and nothing needs to be removed. HERE, heaven does not exist elsewhere than HERE and thus such people who recognize. beginningless presence HERE -- who have completed the great circle of integrity and remain with it continuously, we call the Ongwhehonwhe, the rainbow warriors. Their task is simply to help us all complete it -- in authentic integrity. Those who live in the illusion of separateness, whose heart is broken and fragmented require healing and our patience. Those lost in the illusion of separate "self", in the dualistic world of "ordinary" linear and limited consciousness, where ignorance, confusion, arrogance, fear and pride have ruled their hearts, where separation, alienation, competition, strife, and struggle dominates and love is denied, where the Heart is stressed and constricted, they must abandon their ways and affirm the healing realm. They must desire by their own volition to enter the path of the true people, the Ongwhehonwhe, the people who bring forth in their eyes, their tongues, and hearts and reflect the Rainbow way, where boundless love and wisdom are everywhere present (omnipresent) and integrated -- where the Long Body is acknowledged even within the smallest atom.
The Rainbow people of integrity (the Ongwhehonwhe) abide within this transpersonal non-dual holographic context. They respect, mirror, and acknowledge it at every juncture. They have learned how to dissolve the ego and abide within the living love and living joy, and act as its wisdom messengers and emissaries -- as bringers of the dawn, the love, the light, strength, spirit, and living vital presence to all others, who desire liberation from strife, grief, and confusion.
Living inside of this sacred indigenous context of living spirit, we come home in the sacred present, in sacred presence. We experience a deep heart-felt sense that we are all linked as one inextricable web of life -- as an ecological dynamic spirit-filled unity that reflects the wholographic whole -- one continuous vibrating, pulsating, and co-evolving multi-dimensional integrity as the very natural act of pure and unalloyed creativity/creation itself. This is the subject matter of all great art, music, poetry, dance, song, and love; but words will fail in defining it because what we speak *about* is beyond definition and description. It can only be pointed to as a profound trans-rational REALITY of which man's words, as symbols, can only hint at thus avoiding the potential to limit and demean. The truth is, that words are not necessary to communicate this "reality"; rather it is more helpful to forego them. Man is designed to know this intimately and completely in All Our Relations through direct experience, subjectively.
This eternal spirit thus is to be experienced in our veins and in our heart, in this very body. From HERE sings forth a living love. On the other hand, this body-mind can house confusion and ignorance -- it can be a vehicle of fear, constriction, hatred, plunder, greed, war, and violence. are you ready?
HERE in these pages we will address both vectors; that of corruption, and that of integration.
The "process" of the disenfranchisement and alienation of spirit from man and his view of self and cosmos, on one hand, and on the other hand,
the process of re-unification, harmonization, and re-integration as spiritual embodiment.
HERE we will partition these two interdependent processes (FEAR and non-dual LOVE) in four perspectives:
The Rainbow Bridge as a synergistic synchronization between the artificial gulf that disconnected mental thinking have created in wrongly dreaming into existence two seemingly separate and fractious worlds of heaven and earth, spirit and matter, crown and root (sahasrara and muladhara), right and left (pingala/ida), male/female (shiva/shakti), consciousness and beingness, mind and body, left brain/right brain and so forth. Rather throughout the Rainbowbody network their underlying synergistic free flowing unity will be revealed, will be made accessible, and thus we hope that all men inherit their true and natural birth right which is innate and inherent and which first appears as instinct, intuition, and inner wisdom, but which later is seen as our highest creative potential -- our core Reality and truth -- as a living, pulsating, vibrating and dynamic profound natural transpersonal unity of macrocosm/microcosm -- completed by the Rainbow Bridge, ultimately fulfilling. Separation from or disharmony with this innate connection defines dis-ease, pathology, and pain which is found within programmed dualistic/fragmented paradigms and negative conditioning. Through practice and experience WE become that Rainbow Bridge.
The best of religions present only techniques and pathways on how to find our way back from diaspora, from spiritual alienation and estrangement, from paradise lost, the corruptive state -- from separation from "god" -- from confusion. That is the major focus in authentic spiritual inquiry, i.e., how to bring in Clarity -- Loving Sacred Presence into All Our Relations wherever/whenever it appears absent, everywhere/all the time -- in continuity and integrity. As such it is thus the process of spiritual healing includes the elimination of corrupted and fragmented dualistic existence. This is the healing of the great rend which becomes the Great Binding (Mahavrata) or Reunion.
Such ideas are found in many traditions such as the Hebrew Cabalistic tradition, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Tantra, Sufi, Creation Spirituality, Indigenous Creation stories, ancient wisdom stories and myths, shamanism, yoga, alchemy (both Eastern and Western), Hermetic and Gnostic "secret" traditions, ancient Egyptian and Greek goddess traditions, eco-feminism, most pre-Christian nature religions, Native American traditions, traditional African spirituality, Aboriginal, and all other Indigenous spiritual traditions. However it is in only indigenous time that we can throw out all the techniques -- all the becoming and striving -- all the maps -- for Here and Now -- simultaneously forever -- in an instant of perfect Love. Here we have arrived HOME.
HERE by indigenous, one views one's home and spiritual "self" as an integral part of a beginningless and never-ending process -- of an timeless NOW -- as part of a sacred and intimate process of closing the circle. HERE we define "reality" and our self in terms of a living and present spirituality. HERE there exists genuine living INTEGRITY -- the process is complete and made whole in the living manifestation/celebration of "All Our Relations". This merger of BEINGNESS and CONSCIOUSNESS (Nature and Spirit) occurs through the Rainbowbody.
HERE "self" exists as real only in the sacred context of simultaneously belonging to BOTH the earth and timeless space where neither exists independently of the other -- while the living earth itself is realized as being an integrated part of the living evolution of universe.
In this non-exclusive HERE authentic spiritual respons"ability" spontaneously manifests. HERE there exists an intimate knowledge and expression of implicate order, wholeness, and completion. In other words, one accesses a genuine spirituality only as a living vital and authentic experiential Presence (Spirit) only HERE (in the Timeless Sacred Indigenous Moment)-- here and now, through our day to day -- moment to moment -- activities, thoughts, and words. HERE is where the teaching occurs at all times -- multidimensional and transpersonal. This is where we are touched and embraced by spirit as spiritual beings. In this sense the authentic true "Self" or true nature is all inclusive rather than limited, fragmented, separate, or corrupt. Thus eternal "Self" is neither dependent nor exclusive of the earth and the body, but rather simultaneously co-emerges in all things. HERE separation of form and emptiness, relative and absolute, spirit/nature, consciousness/beingness is eliminated -- the chasm of objective/subjective, left brain/right brain, individual will and universal love co-arise in synchronicity -- Integrity is lived when WE complete the circle -- call it yoga or call it the truth of "All Our Relations".
Through the pages of the Rainbowbody network we will learn how increase our awareness and recognition of this pre-existent eternal now -- how to increase our sense of balance, security, harmony, and well beingness -- to deepen our intimacy and unity with this as a continuous embrace. In the sacred Now there exists no fear of extinction or death -- In REALITY there exists no separation at all, but rather when the mind is crippled and constrained in chronic confusion and distraction, then separation "appears" to be real -- falsity is taken as truth.
To be spiritual we have to be filled with spirit --"spirit full". We have to accept a living God/Presence and embody living spirit, accepting sacredness as indigenous, not alien (elsewhere). WE are human beings not aliens. We must explore what it means to be a human being, not adopt alien/alienating religions or belief systems. If you believe that you do not belong HERE, then you should go back to your home domain. You disrespect the mother.
These indigenous or intrinsic principles (representing a universal truth) are found in (and are fundamental to) all authentic religions, even though most of their organized institutions might have become supplanted and corrupted by self gratuitous man-made (artificial) organizations. Even in Western traditions (which have become the most corrupted) such underlying teachings can be unearthed, albeit having become long ago mostly obscured and superseded -- the purpose is none other than to know God -- to be at one with her. Today, because of widespread institutionalized corrupted thought processes and beliefs (commonly called sin) it is even more valuable that one scrutinizes all "religious systems", self appointed authoritative teaching, so called scripture, inspired technique, book, or "belief" to ascertain its value and where it is based, i.e., is it based on duality and estrangement (distance from spirit or God) or is it based on love affirming the union and where does it lead. Does it affirm the way of love, beauty, wisdom, and the Heart or does it validate estrangement, separateness, absence, corruption, and alienation? For this task, we need genuine insight, of which the experience of living love offers unconditionally. This wisdom permeates everywhere and at all times and places. It is universal and omnipresent, the very ground of being. Its potential expression is within us all. Its heart/core essence is the essence of all.
The Inner and the Outer, the microcosm and macrocosm are, in Reality, One -- a holgraphic context. Union is a matter of alignment -- a matter of a being present -- a matter of direct experience. One may study books, anthropology, history, or religion and find that there exist many source texts throughout the globe to reveal a universal rainbow teaching, but the teaching itself is not found outside in books, buildings, or artifact. Although there is clear evidence of the rainbow bridge tradition was alive in the West and Middle East, as well as in Asia, Africa, and Australia in more indigenous times despite extensive efforts to eradicate it, its renewal is intrinsic, endogenous, implicate, and holographic -- it is found while experiencing -- abiding within the sacred moment, whose quality is inexpressible joy, one is entirely happy and complete. Herein there is no fear or pain.
An intimate knowledge of a living all pervading spirit is THE timeless universal tradition that both precedes and supersedes man's written words and patriarchal systems. It is not "backward" to reclaim and utilize this mostly forgotten wisdom way, for within it the future also is contained. It is a song being sung continuously -- an awe inspiring dance by all the stars, the breeze, the sea, lava flows, mountains, trees, animals, and bees.
The opposing conflict is man's arrogance and pride, insisting as being separate and apart from; rather than a part of, his infatuation with technological "progress" that has gone to his head, while the resulting arrogance has created a dangerous imbalance. Man's technology as well as his teachings and teachers then may be evaluated as to how well they bring us to intimate and authentic knowledge (gnosis) -- to sacred presence -- to becoming more present and "well" on one hand, or how, on the other hand, do they further distance, objectify, disenfranchise, and alienate us producing state of spiritual corruption, confusion, suffering, stress, disease, and despair. Amassing weapons of destruction, prisons of repression, and myriad ways of neurotic over indulgent compensations do not signal a spiritual civilization, but rather a corruption from living spirit.
Many traditions pointng to the universal will also be explored in the Rainbowbody site, as well as sociopolitical, cultural/agricultural, economic, educational structures/systems, institutions, and health systems, which either embrace or deface this self-empowering cosmology of living presence. We will show that the tradition of the indigenous viewpoint of the native American and the medieval yoga literature share a fundamental perspective of a joyful embrace of a more subtle and intimate inner/outer harmonization and sacred technology which is acknowledged, embraced, and held intact.
Thus we will continue to expand, explore, and apply these basic themes of the unification repeatedly (its non-dual nature) of nature and spirit -- the living "reality" of the unity of differentiated and undifferentiated without exclusion -- the greater inclusive context which embraces, affirms, and validates both earth and sky -- of body, mind, speech, breath, spirit -- of the non-antagonistic but rather synergistic relationship of beingness and consciousness -- the synchrony and non-dual holographic unity of left brain/right brain, pingala/ida, lalana and rasana, heaven/earth, crown (sahasrara) chakra and earth (muladhara) chakra, ayin soph and shekinah, kether and malkuth, and the like, which in yoga terminology brings us all into that transpersonal place of "wholy" resonance -- merging with the intimate timeless core-center within (through the opening of the sushumna/avadhuti).
HeartMind Yoga is a process that reconnects us. It is designed to bring us all back together as the act of profound love -- at the place of the great gathering of all tribes and clans. Yoga (meaning the process of interconnecting and joining us together) is thus designed to bring us HOME, where in REALITY, we are all inextricably bound all together in a profound Great All Inclusive Integrity which knows no bounds. Thus it is a strong medicine -- a boon to those who are hurting, who have become conditioned and habituated to disparate ways of forgetfulness, fragmentation, separation, and estrangement. We welcome you.
HERE in indigenous space -- REALITY the front/back, inner/outer, left/right, top/bottom -- all directions are united in free open flow -- all dimensions and no dimensions- residing in the reality in which linear time and space are encompassed and surpassed at altogether and at once -- with no separation, barriers -- without limitation, prejudice, bias, nor taint -- Present as presence in all our activities and in all times -- as the continuous activity of Integrity and gesture of the authentic people, the Ongwhehonwhe, in all our relations as the Rainbow People whose signs are many and diverse; but which include an attainable life-positive and earth positive reflection of spirit/creativity -- as natural creative/evolutionary manifestation.
This web community of http://www.Rainbowbody.net, http://www.Rainbowbody.org, http://www.Rainbowbody.com, http://www.PrayerDance.net, and http://www.PrayerDance.org will present many avenues of exploration within this context as further sky-like, natural expansive self supporting gateways:
"The Life of Shabkar: An Autobiography of a Tibetan Yogi " translated by Matthieu Ricard, and published by SUNY, 1994. From the medieval Himalayan Yoga tradition we are given context on what the Rainbowbody means in the Tibetan yoga tradition.
HeartMind - The Way of Natural Yoga: Many articles and references to YOGA as a method and path of reestablishing the natural, creative, and evolutionary life supporting and healing synergistic synchronicity of the body, mind, breath, and spirit. Yoga means to connect together as a wholesome Integrity. That Wholistic context is assumed that this IS THE WAY IT IS in the natural world, i.e., it already innately self exists -- all things are bound together, but rather the human being's mind (and hence his ways) have become programmed (conditioned) and corrupted. Thus yoga is presented not as a an artificial contrivation, but rather as means for us to break up old dysfunctional patterns of mentation and activity, so that we may realize our own true self existing innate nature. By removing the barriers or veil of ignorance -- removing the programming and conditioning (obscuring confusing influences, false identifications., and negative imprints), then self illumination of the open unobscured sky happens by itself, naturally. This way one explores the deepest path of opening up the Heart fully as the only way to go.
Also don't miss Bill Kötke's excellent book, the "Final Empire", integrative masterpiece of ecology, consciousness, agriculture/culture, and politics.
Green/Indigenous Politics- The Politics of Consciousness and the Consciousness of Politics - Many inspired and creative approaches to natural politics as Love on one hand, and how that is juxtaposed to the more pervasive modern insidious diseases of the institutionalization of hatred, fear, prejudice, pride, alienation, paranoia, absence of love, lack of self worth, absence of the sacred, scarcity, avarice, institutionalized strife, competition, violence, war, genocide, murder, slavery, exploitation, abuse, oppression, and suffering which has usurped it. More there will be articles on how that basically alien (alienated and neurotic), abusive, corrupt, and fragmentary cycle of dis-ease can be re mediated back to its natural integrity and wholeness -- of true healing. Here the political and social consequences as a result of interactions between behavior and human consciousness, identifications, and belief systems are identified, quantified, and qualified. This explores the path of how the Heart has become burdened, contracted, hardened, and obscured and what skillful behavior/activities can neutralize, remediate, heal, and turn it around into the Great Beauty way.
