New episode just posted: Changing Human Nature
Kundalini stimulates neuroplastic activity in the brain,
and consequently, the ability to see and experience life beyond the material,
How do we know this? The effects induced by Kundalini are
akin to those of the near death experience
(the NDE). Kundalini shares a series
of effects with the NDE. NDErs frequently return from their experience with
residual knowledge of the metaphysical dimension. What's striking is that these
types of experiences are commonplace, and, one to another, very similar in
nature. The individual returns with a greater understanding of his/her
connectedness, enhanced creative impulses, and an intense certainty that there
is no death. Moreover, the individual often returns with a feeling of no longer
belonging to the physical world, or at least a feeling of the severe
limitations of this world. Kundalini shares all these effects.
So how does the NDE compare with Kundalini? Well,
certainly they share feelings of alienation from the material world as well as
the other effects cited above. However, in the case of permanent Kundalini,
there are many effects that are not shared. Kundalini triggers a superset of
metanormal effects. For example, it triggers autonomic self-healing mechanisms,
it restores health, and activates neuroplastic activity. As opposed to the NDE,
with Kundalini, cell regeneration is a constant. Why? Because the Kundalini process
uses sexual energy to refresh brain cells. It's impossible for an
Alzheimer's condition to exist in a permanently awakened Kundalini body.

Why is Kundalini so crucial?
Kundalini is THERE, present in every human being. However, its
enormous potential for human evolution has been and will continue to be
misunderstood and neglected. Even though the word itself continues to
be bandied about in strip mall Yoga salons, most people do not
understand the real implications of Kundalini: how to activate it, how
to live with it, what it can do - its critical role
in human development.
In The Biological Basis of Religion and Genius, Gopi Krishna,
the 20th Century's single most influential investigator, identified
Kundalini as the unifying factor behind genius. How did he come to this
conclusion? Like JJ Semple, Gopi Krishna fully activated his Kundalini.
It was active from the moment of his awakening until the day he died.
Again, like JJ Semple, his investigation of Kundalini was not based on
second hand accounts or theory; it was based on day-to-day living with
Kundalini, and on the dramatic changes of consciousness that took place
over many years. Permanent Kundalini awakenings allow the practitioner
to see inside his/her own consciousness.
Common Sense Kundalini
takes a look at all aspects of the Kundalini experience: its scientific ramifications,
the near death experience, neuroplasticity, integration of
consciousness, human potential, Shaktipat, energy healing, finding a
teacher, Kundalini and Pop Culture, permanent vs. temporary, health,
Kundalini Yoga vs. Kundlaini Meditation.
Life Force Books announces a new website devoted to the understanding of Kundalini. The mission of Common Sense Kundalini
is to become the most comprehensive, down-to-earth informational site on this subject.
2009 Alchemy Conference
Recently, I attended the 2009 Alchemy Conference at the Los Angeles
Convention Center where I watched cults, fads, or trends at work, up
close and personal. I saw seekers toiling away at their respective
metaphysical arts. I listened to thousands of words, watched groups at
lectures nodding in attentive rapport. Many questions and many answers.
Very sincere, very respectful, very enthusiastic. Yet, for some reason,
personally unsatisfying. I say personally because I take responsibility
for my lack of enthusiasm, my inability to connect. I'm out of touch,
behind the curve, out to pasture, off the beaten track. And I know it.
I'm a product of my era, to some degree.
That's why I'm going to forge ahead doing my projects, my way.
Reaching out, trying to please, trying to connect are all very well and
good. But if they entail compromise or making concessions, then the
work I have to do will never get done. Why? Because this work relies on
absolute self-truth, on examining and questioning everything I see,
hear, and feel. Without this it's only so much white noise, better suited to the halls and corridors of the LA Convention Center.
Kundalini, as told by Henry Miller, as lived by Holden Caulfield Read what critic Araminta Matthews had to say about JJ Semple's first book:
"When I think of memoirs, I am often bored by
the thought of reading the machinations of some person's mundane
existence. I imagine the story to be amateurish, over-written, and
esoteric. Couple that memoir with a critical commentary on a [in]famous
philosophical treatise from Chinese spirituality and I expected a
full-on yawn-fest. Instead, I was met with a frank, enlightening foray
into the depths of The Secret of the Golden Flower from the perspective of a real person, flaws and all. JJ Semple's Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time is
truly a phenomenon unto itself. This book uses one person's real life
to extrapolate the intricacies of The Golden Flower, from pre-discovery
to post-discovery, and it is quite a ride.
"At the same time as encompassing the
spiritual element, Semple's book also masters the craft of writing and
entertainment. He has mastered dialogue in its creative nonfiction
element and brought alive through voice the characters of his memories.
In addition, his writing is constantly hand-carved - in no instance
does it feel over-written or flowery, as though he has kept his
language on a leash close to his hip.
"I recommend this book to everyone. Truly,
this is the best book I've read in a long time, both in terms of
practical application of spiritual practice and market entertainment.
This book is a riveting experience."

Who is JJ Semple?
JJ Semple has worked as a film editor for NBC with TV
producers Stuart Schulberg and Ted Yates, and he edited "Assassin," an
independent feature film, for Rod Bradley's Streetlight Productions.
In the 1970s and 80s he lived in France, where he directed
his own training school, Arazon, a company that prepared managers for
negotiation and problem solving. After attending a French business school, he
established a subsidiary of UNILOG, a leading French software company, in the
US. He returned to Paris to work for Apple Computer Europe, designing
multimedia programs. He also taught a multimedia course at the American University
in Paris. It was during this period that he began writing feature screenplays.
His screenplay, "Everyone Wants to Make Movies" (co-written
with Mark Richardson) won the Telluride award in 1997, and their screenplay
"Little Dan" won first place at the Telluride Independent Film Festival in
His personal education involves yogic practices and metaphysical exploration, inspired by a wide variety of teachers, writers and
philosophers, including Gopi Krishna, whom he met and collaborated with in
Kashmir in 1977. He is now one of the foremost authorities on a safe, reliable
method for activating Kundalini.
Says JJ Semple, "After many years
of practicing Yoga and meditation on my own, I realized my self-reliance had
provided me with the knowledge to create a method of my own - a method for
self-learners. It's called Golden Flower Meditation (GFM), a method I learned through extensive study of The
Secret of the Golden Flower. Practitioners
all over the world use it. In fact, because of its revolutionary implementation
of sexual sublimation, every Yoga teacher and meditation instructor should have
GFM techniques in their toolkit.

Diaphragmatic Deep Breathing
Diaphragmatic Deep Breathing
represents the crucial first step of the Golden Flower Kundalini Meditation
method, a step each practitioner must learn before attempting the
backward-flowing method. The exercises in this CD are set to Universal
World genre music composed and arranged by JJ Semple.
The music blends seamlessly with spoken instructions on using the
diaphragm with every breath you take. You can purchase this CD from Amazon.com, through a direct link from this Web site.
"I don't charge for the method,"says JJ Semple, "In fact, I give it away through my books. For example, Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time
describes the method in easy-to-understand, non-technical language and my new book, The Backward-Flowing Method: The Secret of Life and Death
takes the subject even deeper.
Says JJ Semple, "When I was 7, I suffered an accident; a long splinter became lodged in my foot, shutting down vital growth energy to various parts of my body.
"The splinter shut down a vital nexus in my nervous system, denying growth energy to that whole synaptic neural circuit. You see, each part of the body is governed by a specific area of the brain. If either the part of the brain or its corresponding body part is damaged, the related part also suffers.
"Eventually, I found a meditation method that revitalized my brain from the inside-out. A system for triggering the autonomic self-healing mechanisms of the body - Kundalini. I have practiced the method for 40 years. It's called GFM, and it's named after that masterpiece of Chinese alchemy, The Secret of the Golden Flower
, the book many adepts recognize as the Buddha's own meditation system, a system that Gopi Krishna, the 20th Century's great elucidator of Kundalini, described as 'containing unmistakable hints about the sublimation process'."
