SUBTLE ENERGIES ON PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM April 8, 2008


Some Evidence of Subtle Energies on Photographic Film

William A. Tiller, Ph.D. – SUBTLE ENERGY ACTIONS AND PHYSICAL DOMAIN CORRELATIONS  – CONSCIOUSNESS, INTENTIONALITY AND SUBTLE ENERGIES – Professor Emeritus – Department of Materials Science and Engineering – Stanford University – Stanford, California 94305-2205

During the early 1970s, a gentleman named Stan came to see me about some photographs he had taken. At the time, his camera was a simple Kodak with a plastic lens, and the film was Kodak Kodacolor.
Strange lights and illuminations appeared on the photos. Stan indicated much the same thing happened when other people gave him their cameras to take pictures. He first thought he was a camera klutz. But he eventually realized that the film phenomena correlated with special inner states he could sense and which he felt “energized” the camera. Dark which processed the photographs. In addition to the expected physical scenes, remarkable optical effects were imprinted on the photographs.

The special occasions when the optical effects were most probably to be obtained were (a) at spiritual rock concerts; (b) at religious shrines; and (c) at high-energy metaphysical lectures.

The special inner states involved the following physiological symptoms. Whenever he would sense a particular feeling in his 7th cervical plus 4th thoracic vertebrae and snapped a picture, he would invariably find some anomaly present on the subsequent photograph. In addition to the expected physical scenes, remarkable optical effects were imprinted on the photographs. His camera had been sent to Kodak and certified to be in good working order. The photographs were also sent to Kodak specialists to determine what kind of picture-taking error had transpired. ….

Over a fifteen-year period, out of 9,000 photographs taken 5,000 contained easily distinguishable anomalies. During all of this time, his only intention during the picture-taking process was “to reveal God’s universe.”

In a series of studies I carried out with this man, two cameras were utilized. One camera was sensitized by the man, the other was not. Both were mounted on a single tripod with a single shutter release. Standard Kodak color film and standard Kodak processing were used, and the man was never allowed to touch the film during loading or unloading.

Most photo pairs showed very significant differences. The photos from the sensitized camera would often show one or more people in the frame as somewhat transparent over a portion of their body so that objects behind them could clearly been seen through the transparent (translucent) portion. However, the photos from the unsensitized camera showed their bodies fully formed and opaque as one would expect. In other single camera experiments, the opaque lens cap was placed on the sensitized camera, but remarkably clear photographs THROUGH this opaque barrier were still obtained.

This man appeared to be able to sensitize any camera merely by keeping it close to his body for several days.
After he had fully sensitized a camera (or charged it up with his subtle energies), it could be passed to someone else to take the pictures. Some anomalies would continue to appear on the photographs for the next hour, after which time period no further anomalies would appear.

Certain deductions can be made from this study.

 

(1) Some kind of radiations exists in nature that can travel through materials that are normally opaque to visible light.
(2) Such radiations, which may be normally present in nature, can be imaged via the camera onto the film by some quality inherent in this man’s energy field, and register an imprint at the physical level of the silver halide grains of the film.
(3) Some “energy soaking time” is needed for the camera to acquire this anomalous capacity after placing it in the special energy field of this man.
(4) This acquired anomalous capacity leaks away with a time constant of about l hour – unless continually “pumped” by the energy field of this particular man.

 

 

MOON April 6, 2008


SHRI MATAJI – Gudi Padwa Talk

“Here (in India) every festival is based on position of the moon.  And that’s why the dates keep changing (every year) and a festival occurs on different dates in different years.  The reason why we give importance to the moon and keep all our dates according to its position is that the moon has more influence on human beings than the sun. Along with the moon, other planets also have influence on us.  That is the reason we observe festivals as per the lunar calendar.”

“Whatever it is, we must think as to why we give so much importance to the moon.  The reason is that we should remain vigilant about the effects that the moon has on us.  The biggest effect that the moon has on us is because our left side is based on it.  Very few people know about it.  This left side of the body which is recognised and accepted so much in our country, has psychological effects on us. 

Effects on the left side are psychological and not intellectual, and we cannot control it.  Whatever psychological problems we have, cannot be controlled.  We cannot control the effect of the moon on us.  That’s why the position of the moon is seen and lunar dates are observed.  For example if it is a no-moon night (Amavasya) or a full moon night (Poornima) then the problem of a person, having epilepsy or any other psychological problem, will aggravate further.  One can immediately see very clearly that such a person has been affected by the full moon or no-moon. 

That’s why we are very much sensitive towards the position of moon and date of lunar month.  In our country detailed calculations are done on this, to know about the exact timings and position of the eclipse.  All this shows that in our country a lot of care is taken about the effects of lunar calendar and so much has been discussed and written about it.”

 

THE BLIND MEN AND THE ELEPHANT March 16, 2008


elephant.jpg

John Godfrey Saxe’s ( 1816-1887) version of the famous Indian legend

It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.
The First approached the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
“God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!”
The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, -“Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me ’tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!”
The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
Is very like a snake!”
The Fourth reached out his eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
“What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain,” quoth he,
“‘Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!”
The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
Said: “E’en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!”
The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Then, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
Is very like a rope!”
And so these men of Hindustan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!
MORAL.
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
 

How to Search for God March 11, 2008

To pitch darkness they go who worship the Unmanifested (Prakriti). To a greater darkness than this go those who are devoted to the Manifested (Hiranyagarbha).Isa Upanishad

The ancient Indian saints and sages were most advanced in their spiritual pursuit. They composed voluminous texts named ‘Vedas‘ in order to describe their spiritual findings and realizations. The cream of Indian spiritualism is found in the Upanishads, which are the last volumes of Vedas. It is believed that Vedas were composed from 1500 BC onwards and Upanishads were composed from 700 BC onwards. Upanishads are not only for Hindus, but for the whole of mankind.
Out of eleven principal Upanishads, it is accepted that Isha Upanishad is the oldest of all. Let us see what this Upanishad describes in order to search for God.
God resides in living beings. Isha Upanishad begins by describing that whatever living beings inhabit the world here, God resides in all of them. There are two things in the world — on one hand is life and consciousness and on the other, inert matter. God does not reside in the inert and unconscious matter or material world. The material world appears to exist for God or a divine truth exists. But God resides in the living beings in the form of life and consciousness.
The essence of a being is its life and consciousness. The source of life and consciousness in living beings is called self, soul or Atman. At death when Atman departs from the body, it remains behind as dead matter. Nothing can give new lease of life. So Atman is everything of a being and the home of God is Atman.
A self-slayer is one who does not realize Atman. Isha Upanishad describes self-slayers as those who do not try to realize Atman as the home of God. As a consequence after their death, they enter into a world of blind darkness. So without spending time, men should try to realize God within.
Turn away mind from outside. The consciousness of Atman is expressed and felt in the mind. The nature of mind is to move fast. Sometimes it moves, sometimes it is static; sometimes it is far away, sometimes it is very close. This mind is the heart of all. So in order to realize Atman, one has to turn away one’s mind from the outside world and concentrate it on Atman.
All souls are one. One who sees all beings in oneself and oneself in other beings comes to know everything. Nothing remains undisclosed for him. He becomes omniscient. All souls are one and the same. One should not see differences between beings or between self and God.
Strike a balance between spiritualism and materialism – Isha Upanishad describes that those who worship false-knowledge (avidya) enter into darkness. In spiritual language, knowledge (vidya) means know-how about things which exist. In the world, only life and
consciousness exist. So knowledge means know-how about life, consciousness, soul and God. Conversely false-knowledge is the know-how about things which do not exist. Material world and worldly objects in reality do not exist. Knowledge indicates spiritualism, and false-knowledge indicates material science.
Upanishad further describes that by knowing the futility of false-knowledge, you can overcomes death, and by realizing knowledge, you get immortality. Death is equal to matter. So by turning away from the material world, you overcome death and get immortality. Since you have material body, you cannot turn away from the material world completely. So you have to strike a balance between the material world and life or between science and spiritualism. Progress on science and spiritualism should go hand in hand. Otherwise civilization shall be destroyed.

Tad Niskala, A very powerful prayer for meditation.- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

 

Om. I am neither the mind,
Intelligence, ego nor ‘chitta’
Neither the ears, nor the tongue,
Nor the senses of smell and sight,
Neither ether, nor air,I am Eternal Bliss and Awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

I am neither the ‘prana’,
Nor the five vital breaths,
Neither the seven elements of hte body,
Nor its five sheaths,
Nor the hands, nor the feet, nor tongue,
Nor other organs of action.
I am Eternal Bliss and awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

Neither fear, greed, nor delusion,
Loathing, nor liking have I,
Nothing of pride, of ego,
Of ‘dharma’ or Liberation,
Neither desire of the mind,
Nor the object for its desiring.
I am Eternal Bliss and Awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

Nothing of pleasure and pain,
Of virtue and vice, do I know,
Of mantra, of sacred place,
Of Vedas or Sacrifice,
Neither I am the eater,
The food or the act of eating.
I am Eternal Bliss and Awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

Death or fear, I have none,
Nor any distinction of ‘caste’,
Neither father, nor Mother,
Nor even a birth, haveI,
Neither friend, nor comrade,
Neither disciple, nor Guru.
I am Eternal Bliss and Awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

I have no form or fancy,
The All-pervading am I,
Everywhere I exist,
And yet I am beyond the senses,
Neither salvation am I,
Nor anything to be known.
I am Eternal Bliss and Awareness.
I am Shiva!  I am Shiva!

 
“That’s what you are. You are Eternal Bliss and Awareness. Consciousness. The pure Consciousness. I think it must be. Everyone must remember it by heart and must say it in all the ashrams. That’s a very good way of remembering what you are!” –           Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
 
 

MIND or HEART? March 1, 2008

“He is very sharp.”, “He is very smart”, “He is open hearted”, “He is chickenhearted”.

Should we follow our heart or our mind?

From the medicine we know that when the brain stops the heart can continue working but when the heart stops everything stops.

The ancient scripture Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is clear that our essence Atma/Spirit, Purusha/ is in the heart:

II-v-10: This ether is (like) honey to all beings, and all beings are (like) honey to this ether. (The same with) the shining immortal being who is in this ether, and the shining, immortal being identified with the ether in the heart, in the body. (These four) are but this Self. This (Self-knowledge) is (the means of) immortality; this (underlying unity) is Brahman; this (knowledge of Brahman) is (the means of becoming) all.

Also Bhagavad Gita  shows that the Light is in the heart: 

13.18. That, the Light of all lights, is beyond darkness; it is said to be knowledge, the Knowable and the goal of knowledge, seated in the hearts of all.

The ancient Indians believe that the man thinking with his heart. May be is a time to realize this.

It might interest you to know that the heart’s electromagnetic field is the most powerful the body produces. It is approximately five thousand times greater than the field produced by the brain. The heart’s field not only permeates every cell in the body but also radiates outside of us. It can be measured up to eight to ten feet away with sensitive detectors called magnetometers.

Now you know the value of healing from the energy of the heart. Now you know the value of love. There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge. No wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how the great the mistake.A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.
