In 2016, the forecast calls for the greatest number of Eta Aquarid meteors to light up the predawn darkness on May 5 and 6. It should be a good year for this shower, with the May 6 new moon guaranteeing deliciously dark skies for the 2016 Eta Aquarids. This shower favors the Southern Hemisphere, ranking as one of the finest showers of the year. At mid-northern latitudes, these meteors don’t fall so abundantly, though mid-northern meteor watchers will catch some, too, and might be lucky enough to catch an earthgrazer – a bright, long-lasting meteor that travels horizontally across the sky – before dawn. The Eta Aquarids are mainly a predawn shower. Follow the links below to learn more about the Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

The universe is not merely a mathematical formula for working out the relation of certain mental abstractions called numbers and principles to arrive in the end at a zero or a void unit, neither is it merely a physical operation embodying a certain equation of forces. It is the delight of a Self-lover, the play of a Child, the endless
self-multiplication of a Poet intoxicated with the rapture of His own power of endless creation.

Sensing Feeling Knowing A retreat to experience the real world
A workshop at SLI, by Jinan KB on 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

..Know then your self; know your true self to be God and one with the self of all others; know your soul to be a portion of God. Live in what you know; live in the self, live in your supreme spiritual nature, be united with God and Godlike. Offer, first, all your actions as a sacrifice to the Highest and the One in you and to the Highest and the One in the world; deliver last all you are and do into his hands for the supreme and universal spirit to do through you his own will and works in the world.
Sri Aurobindo
( from The Esasays on The Gita )

Wideness and calmness are the foundation of the yogic consciousness and the best condition for inner growth and experience. If a wide calm can be established in the physical consciousness, occupying and filling the very body and all its cells, that can become the basis for its transformation; in fact, without this wideness and calmness the transformation is hardly possible.

Dream the Dream

UNENDING EDUCATION, CREATIVE CULTURE, INTEGRAL PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT, INNOVATIVE ARCHITECTURE, ENVIRONMENTAL CARE, NEW ENERGIES, ORGANIC FARMINGANDHEALTHYFOOD,SUSTAINABLE REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT, INTEGRAL HEALT, FRATERNAL ECONOMY, COMMUNICATION OF THE FUTURE, TRANSFORMATIONAL NETWORKING


Studio Naqshbandi & Sustainable Livelihood Institute invite us to a Sensing Feeling Knowing A retreat to experience the real world, a workshop at SLI.

“The conditions in which men live on earth are the result of their state of consciousness…. No human organization can change radically unless human consciousness itself changes… The most important idea is that the unity of the human race can be achieved neither by uniformity nor by domination and subjection. Only a synthetic organization of all nations, each one occupying its true place according to its own genius and the part it has to play in the whole, can bring about a comprehensive and progressive unification which has any chance of enduring. And if this synthesis is to be a living one, the grouping should be effectuated around a central idea that is as wide and as high as possible, in which all tendencies, even the most contradictory, may find their respective places. This higher idea is to give men the conditions of life they need in order to be able to prepare themselves to manifest the new force that will create the race of tomorrow. “

When the inertia comes up the old movements which the subconscient is prepared to supply always can mechanically come up with it. In a certain sense this inertia and the peace are the bright and dark counterparts of each other , tamas and sama -the higher Nature finding repose in peace, the lower seeking it in a relaxation of energy and a return towards the subconscient, tamas.

"This erring race of human beings dreams always of perfecting their environment by the machinery of government and society; but it is only by the perfection of the soul within that the outer environment can be perfected. What thou art within, that outside thee thou shalt enjoy; no machinery can rescue thee from the law of thy being."
