your pet rock
My pet rock what? Gordon is all agog to hear what you're on about.
Excuse me for a moment while I look back upthread. [grumble]
I'll see if I can make sense of your cryptic post.
Hmmm. Are you seriously suggesting that assisted shaktipat is my
pet rock Gordon? Why, that makes no sense at all. Explain yourself,
David Dalton, or be forever labelled "loon".
Of course I'm a loon, and in good company here.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaktipat .
Or: Shaktipat can be described as proximity induced
kundalini awakening, such that when a sensitive
individual is near a spiritually more advanced
individual the sensitive individual undergoes an
awakening. I think I got shaktipat from my
then-soon-to-be yoga teacher Gioia Irwin on
August 31, 1991 and that led, since I wasn't
properly grounded, to a manic episode that
culminated in my Sept. 5/6, 1991 naked sun stare,
thorn hill climb, and blue rose vision described
on http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/dtales.html .
But shaktipat is usually one to one and is usually
proximity induced. In the assisted shaktipat I am
hoping for shaktipat from me to a large group of
recipients, few (maybe none) very near me. Since
I don't think I am capable of inducing that, I
hope that it will be assisted by one or more of
my eight main deities (listed on that web page).
Thus I call it assisted shaktipat.
Why do I think I am worthy of such assisted
shaktipat from me? I say why on that web page,
but basically I claim that from an analysis of
my past mystic cycles and individual experiences
that I am similar to some past major pagan and
major nonpagan religious figures. However I am
currently still in what I call the low years
(which while I am on medication are not too
low except in terms of creativity and still
an occasional tendency to delusion, and rarely
some low mood) which for most past figures have
lasted seven years but for me have lasted
17.77 years so far, and which may last seven
years plus an eleven year sunspot cycle. I don't
think the assisted shaktipat will occur, if ever,
until I come out of those low years.
Who do I list as assisted shaktipat recipients?
The list from my most recent attempt is listed
on the four components subpage of the above
web page, notably in the entry 4.7. But in
that list I am assuming that Gaia is the deity
assisting, and that may change in future attempts,
as may the list. I may also include some
cetaceans on a future list. But what is relevant
to my last post here from that list is that I
say that the list includes readers of at least 4055
words of my writing. That number may change,
probably to a larger number, in future attempt(s).
But could the assisted shaktipat lead to a manic
episode as happened to me? No, I have specified
that recipients go no higher than I was from the
night of Jan. 5, 1994 to the morning of Jan. 9, 1994
and if they are higher than that to start with
they will drop to that level. That episode
was my best high ever and was only slightly
above normal mood range, and my family didn't
And it could be that no assisted shaktipat will
occur, even when I come out of the low years.
(And note that Diwali, which is right now, would
be an appropriate time for me to come out of
the low years, since it is when Rama defeated
a demon and came out of a 14 year exile, and
is when Krishna and one of his wives defeated a demon.)
After all that I bet many will still call me a loon.
But the Canadian dollar coin has a loon on it.
