Research & teachings 3 30 11

These recent photos are from the forthcoming books of Rasa Von Werder,
"Old Woman / Young Man - Why They Belong Together"
Parts I & II

Concerning spirituality, Female Empowerment, the evils of Patriarchy, Health, etc.

TED PORTER speaks wisely about “the box” men are in, & that when they give it up they will be free.  Males need to be liberated.  He speaks well of how males are taught to see women as something lower, to use, especially for sex.  This is excellent.  He gives revealing personal anecdotes.  Being “a man” means hiding their feelings, of course, their compassionate or sensitive feelings.
Seeker asks Rasa about celibacy:
Hindu scriptures point out that by the honest and true, unbroken practice of Brahmacharya in thought word and deed for a period of 12 years, 'Buddhi naadi' or 'Medha naadi' is formed in the brain by which man can have a photographic memory of anything he reads or hears and can reproduce the same word to word unfailingly. He can solve extremely difficult problems and life situations easily by using the power of his 'Ojas' or divine energy. The ability of the brain to concentrate, focus and find solutions to any problem would be comparable to superhuman dimensions. Further to this period of true celibacy in thought, word and deed, man develops 'Trikaala Gnyana' or the knowledge of the past, present and future and rests in a state of incomparable bliss, constantly in the thought of God.

Swami Vivekananda was a living example for the benefits one derives from the practice of celibacy in effect. He attributed his remarkable mental prowess to a lifelong observance of Brahmacharya. At one point in time, a disciple of his was exclaiming at the impossibility of absorbing all the contents of the many volumes of 'Encyclopedia Brittanica' that had landed at the library the previous day.

Seeing the new, shining volumes, the disciple said to Swami - “It is almost impossible to read all these books in a single lifetime.”
The Swami said -" What do you say? Ask me anything you like from these ten volumes, and I will answer them all.
The disciple asked in wonder, “Have you read all these books?”
Swami - " Why should I ask you to question me otherwise?"

On being examined, Swami Vivekananda not only reproduced the sense, but at places the very language of the difficult topics selected from each volume. The disciple, astonished, put aside the books, saying, “This is not within human power!”
The Swami said: " Do you see?, simply by the observance of strict Brahmacharya all learning can be mastered in a very short time — one has an unfailing memory of what one hears or knows but once. That power may come to all. That power comes to him who observes unbroken Brahmacharya for a period of twelve years. With the sole object of realising God, I have practiced that kind of Brahmacharya myself, and so a screen has been removed, as it were, from my brain. For that reason, I need not any more think over or prepare myself for any lectures on such a subtle subject as philosophy. Suppose I have to lecture tomorrow; all that I shall speak about will pass tonight before my eyes like so many pictures; and the next day I put into words during my lecture all those things that I saw. So you will understand now that it is not any power which is exclusively my own. Whoever will practice unbroken Brahmacharya for twelve years will surely have it. If you do so, you too will get it".- End of quote.

Guru Rasa,  Is this true in your experience?

Rasa:   I read the account.
I think yogis have a tendency to exaggerate.  When I, a woman, wrote you about celibacy, I was being honest but have not seen honesty that strong in the yogi accounts of celibacy.
Yes, the mind has much more clarity & focus & creativity when the physical urges, in this case sex, are put aside.  But a photographic memory?  It improves, but I certainly do not have a photographic memory.
To be truly celibate you have to give up 90 to 99% of the desire for sex, & that means, no masturbation.  This takes many years & you will slide back & forth even in the first twelve years.
You cannot destroy the sex drive entirely because it is an instinct & they never die – nor are they supposed to – they are only quieted down or put to sleep.
I have never met another person who has practiced celibacy to the degree or length that I have.  Many brag about a few years here or there – but this is usually involuntary, for lack of partners (I think they continue to masturbate, which is not total celibacy but partial) or a medical condition, or a sluggish sex drive.  Not the same thing at all to give up a healthy sex drive for the sake of attaining God.
Another thing:  I suffered for six years with intestinal paralysis & had to take an enema six days a week, to evacuate my bowels, because of cutting off my thoughts & feelings re. sex.
Celibacy is torture to attain.
But once attained, it has great benefits.

In many countries, government officials and drug companies aggressively resist conducting studies that compare the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. But such studies have been conducted in Africa .
One such study, from Guinea-Bissau , shows a doubling of the mortality rate among infants vaccinated with a single dose of DTP vaccine. The mortality rate more than quadrupled after the second and third dose.
According to Age of Autism:
"VAERS data also show high infant mortality in the U.S. after DTP vaccination (much higher than from pertussis, diphtheria and tetanus together, hence it is clear that DTP vaccine is harming more children than saving."
A safety panel is convening in Japan to investigate the connection between two widely used vaccines -- Pfizer's Prevenar and Sanofi Pasteur's ActHIB -- and the deaths of five children in the past month. Japan 's health ministry has ordered doctors to stop immunizing infants with the vaccines while investigation proceeds.
The vaccines are commonly given to infants around the world.
CNN reports:
"Pfizer estimates it has distributed more than 360 million doses of [Prevenar], which is available in more than 100 countries around the world and part of the routine childhood immunization schedule in more than 50 countries. In Japan, 2 million doses have been administered."
However, on March 8, Market Watch reported that the panel had concluded the vaccines did not cause any of the infant deaths. They did however "request data on the safety of giving multiple vaccines simultaneously and more analysis of the cases," Bloomberg reports.

In similar news, five infants died after being vaccinated for measles at Gandhidhams Rambaugh Hospital in India earlier this month. Three additional infants are said to be in serious condition.

The Times of India reports:
'The entire stock of this vaccine in the state has been withdrawn pending lab tests and measles vaccination in the district has been stopped till further notice. Following the deaths at 10 am, people went berserk breaking furniture and fixtures and beating up Dr Abhishek Makwana, who was on duty. Four infants died within minutes of being vaccinated by two female health workers while one infant died after an hour."

Rasa on celibacy:

The operating principle of celibacy is this:  The effort to shut down the lower chakras (to a point, not completely, put them into a somnambulant state) & channel the energy from the lowest chakra until it reaches the Sahasrara, wherein God is.  When you find god it is in the Sahasrara, god is in the middle of your brain as an energy center called,  in Siddha yoga "the blue pearl".  when "God" becomes active, you get a halo from the energy center radiating.
In order to reach the Sahasrara you have to focus your entire mind, heart, soul & body on the nature of God - what God is, the infinite, positive, powerful qualities of god.  This is the work you do.
As you do this work, you become more like God every day until you are God.  This is called Self realization or Enlightenment. 
There were/are many great saints who don't adhere to this philosophy, that they are God.  But my understanding is that when we reach the God within us, we are God or put another way, the Spirit of God has taken us over or we have melted into it.
When you reach the level of God your behavior is God-like, or you exhibit the qualities & virtues of God.
In Christian terms, you receive all the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, to some degree, depending on what kind of Anointing you are meant to have.  Look up "Gifts of the Holy Spirit" & you'll know what qualities they are.
In Yoga, they call it Kundalini Shakti or Chitishakti, the Energy of God, & they describe the Gifts & qualities of God in different terms.
I am in the state called "nonduality" which is nothing that Christians recognize except when they say “No longer I live but Christ in me.” (they believe this can happen & they see Jesus as God, but they don’t call themselves God when they become Jesus.
I am living in a place called Lila or Leela, which is when
one knows that God acts through them, it is "the play of God."  God is living through my body, acting through it.
What does this give me?
It gives me great faith in myself, it takes away my fear of people as to what they think of me (this gives me great freedom). I believe I can do all that God can do, that what I desire will come to pass. When I pray to God or speak to her, I know She is me, & I am her.  "She" is inside my brain & my body is her "lower self" but when She acts, you could say there is no higher or lower self, all becomes One. 
Just as we worship Jesus, & his Holy Wounds, Enlightened people deserve worship, & they transmit power to others when others venerate or worship them.
Our Power also manifests at certain times, when it is needed, when we do great works or there is danger afoot.  The Power kicks in at the right time, it does not resonate 24/7.  It worked for David when he was protecting the sheep from wolves, a bear, a lion, & when he faced Goliath.

  1. Hi, i think this is very interesting.
    Women have lots of erotic power over males; when i discovered masturbation, and later the effect of doing it while watching women on internet and magazines, i realize of much i crave them.

    For me, maturbating for a woman is a way of showing how much i like her, and proof of her sexual power over me (i'm masturbating for her, NOT she for me).

    And the fact that so many women are smarter than the average man, doubles the effect over me; so, when i masturbate to a woman like Rasa, who undoubtely is smarter than me, makes me feel more horny and humble.
