Aura of Place 10-26-11
Not true in Antarctica. The place is so big and empty of anything other than itself, that you really feel IT.
I had the absolute pleasure of going to Antarctica a couple of years ago (I say pleasure but there were also moments of extreme terror, crossing the Drake Passage in forty foot seas, being stuck on a rock, literally, at the bottom of the world waiting for a rescue ship). The trip was a generous gift from my son, Eric -- and I have never felt the impact of place so beautifully and so fiercely, as in Antarctica. (some big empty deserts would come a distant second)
Seventh Chakra. Eighth Chakra. We're in a high and lonely realm.
The way to experience the upper chakras is to meditate.
Antarctica was like living in a meditative state: vast, unearthly, filled with the Presence of God.
Sit comfortably. Hands in a gyan mudra, thumbs and fore-fingers touching. Chant: Guru Guru Wahe Guru Guru Ram Das Guru, continuously, at a fast pace, for as long as you want.
