These guided meditations are not from any particular tradition, but could be seen as reflecting the perennial teaching inherent to many traditions. They have been created to help convey the practice that will lead to Samadhi, which is realization of your true nature beyond this limited form. Integral to this ancient form of meditation is the cultivating of the skills of concentration and inner surrender (mindfulness), which has been shown to have many side benefits such as reduction of stress, increased attention and cognitive abilities, increased compassion, tolerance, creativity, emotional intelligence, self awareness, ability to break addictions, and a variety of health benefits. As we move through the practices we move from shorter periods of meditation to longer periods, and we move from using techniques to choiceless awareness. We move from mind fullness to mind emptiness, and to realizing the non-dual state or the Samadhi state which is beyond fullness and emptiness.
Practice in a comfortable position, sitting on a cushion, chair or meditation bench and make sure your spine is straight. Rest your hands in whatever position you like. Once you have found a comfortable position, make an intention to stay in that position for the whole meditation without shifting or moving. The eyes can be open or closed. If they are too open you may become distracted, and if fully closed your meditation may become foggy or dull. So adjust your practice accordingly so that your meditation is vivid and lucid.
Originally this film was going to be a part of Samadhi Part 3, but it grew into its own separate creation. It explores something very important that is seldom spoken of in some spiritual traditions (the topic is almost taboo). It is based around insights that came during a “peak meditation experience” when I encountered beings that identified themselves as “the Seraphim”. Yes, the Seraphim are considered to be “angels”, but for me were nothing like the humans with wings depicted in the Bible, but a field of conscious energy which has the singular purpose of helping our soul to complete its evolutionary journey. In this film I report on the experience and give some insights that came to me. Such phenomena may sometimes be dismissed or negated due to preconceptions or biases within the limited egoic self, or on the flip side they may be given too much emphasis and become entrapments for the ego as it creates an identity around them. The film explores the relationship between the dimensions of being and becoming as the self structure grows and evolves, and the apparent paradoxes of realizing Samadhi at increasingly more subtle levels of the developmental spiral.
Realizing Samadhi is only the first step in an unfathomable unfolding journey to expand the inner lotus into higher worlds; an enlightenment process which is a development within the levels of self structure and soul. Awakening is waking up to the unchanging dimension of absolute “being”, pure consciousness, while enlightenment is about the ongoing dance of evolution and involution within the manifested world, the endless cycle of “becoming”. The human game allows the possibility of creating an expanded and purified vessel to interface with divine consciousness, or higher “impersonal” levels of consciousness. When we sacrifice the egoic wants to allow this divine connection to unfold, we become part of an expanded level of existence and part of a higher “plan”.
Through imitation of the Seraphim, or by matching their vibration, humans can have the same unmediated union with god. We are meant to imitate them, learn from their example, merge with their light, but not to worship them. Nor can we invoke their presence or try to summon them from the lower mind. We merge with them by becoming like them, by matching their resonance as we evolve on the spiritual path.
This release includes the full “Metatron’s Vision” which is a related sound and visual journey (or you could call it a “transverberation”) created by Daniel Schmidt and David Donnelly (the Fractalverse). “Metatron’s Vision” is designed to be listened to with headphones because the stereo effects create a swirling of energy that is difficult to perceive with speakers. Choose a time and place where you are not going to be interrupted. There are no particular instructions for the experience itself. Just see if you can sit still and go through the entire journey without generating a thought, staying present and attentive to the whole experience.

Surrealist Tarot deck of Leonora Carrington has gorgeous imagery based on her paintings. I need this deck. I’ve always loved surrealismand have been a strong proponent of women artists.
I wanted to be an artist since I was 9 years old. I told my mother that it was what I was going to be when I grew up. There was only Georgia O’Keefe that I knew of as a child who was a famous living woman artist and I loved her paintings. I went to Art College and specialized in Experimental Arts. I got involved in Feminist Art and found out there were many women artists since the Renaissance who have been suppressed and ignored.
Here is Leonora Carrington’s Astrology Chart.

The first Mercury Retrograde of 2021 is here. We will expand this post a bit in the next few days, but we want to put up a few charts first (on the outside chance you know how to read them or are trying to learn that skill).
A few key points:
- Mercury Retrograde begins with the Retrograde Station today (January 30th of 2021)
- Mercury Retrograde ends with the Direct Station (February 20th of 2021)
- The Shadow Period prior to the retrograde started January 15th
- The Shadow Period after the direct station ends March 14th
- Most of the chaos is associated with the stations and aspects in the shadow period
- Mercury Retrograde can always be useful; use it to complete “unfinished business” and overlooked maintenance. Cars break down, but often we have the flat tire because the time for new tires had arrived (and we ignored the warning signs). Opportunities abound…

Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today announced that the company is discontinuing development of its SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccine candidates, V590 and V591, and plans to focus its SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 research strategy and production capabilities on advancing two therapeutic candidates, MK-4482 and MK-7110. This decision follows Merck’s review of findings from Phase 1 clinical studies for the vaccines. In these studies, both V590 and V591 were generally well tolerated, but the immune responses were inferior to those seen following natural infection and those reported for other SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccines. Merck continues to advance clinical programs and to scale-up manufacturing for two investigational medicines, MK-7110 and MK-4482 (molnupiravir); molnupiravir is being developed in collaboration with Ridgeback Bio. “We are grateful to our collaborators who worked with us on these vaccine candidates and to the volunteers in the trials,” said Dr.
