"AWAKENING OF THE DRAGON" – Our children play the Game of Life

We all have a Dragon, a Spiritual Power, within us...

Mythologically, she is called Radha.

Radha needs to go back to Krishna... She dreams about Him.

She is contemplating Him... in her mind.


















But Radha is sleeping...

Similarly,

the Dragon within us lies dormant at the base of our spine...

We have to awaken our Dragon...

... and prepare the way for her to rise...

The Dragon needs to pass through all the Gates of Life,

to fully express our human potential.


The goal is to go back to Consciousness ( "The Ocean of Divine Love" )...

to be complete, to be whole.


Similarly,

Radha needs to be reunited with Krishna...

to be complete, to be whole.

But along her path, so many obstacles get in the way...

This is Radha's journey back Home. Back to Krishna...

And...

It is our journey back Home too!

But along our path...

our mind & body is a battlefield!

There is a constant battle inside us between different emotions...

100 emotions ( Vrttis )! ...as the number of children playing this Game!

These emotions are located at the different Gates of Life.


This is the first:

The Earth Gate

Muladhara Cakra

Located: at the base of our spine.

Controls: Solid factor

Here we find our 4 basic propensities

( represented by the 4 petals ):

Physical desire,

Psychic desire,

Psycho-Spiritual desire,

Spiritual desire.


Here, we have to choose...

How do we want to move through life?

And so the children chose their team... Each team reflects a mode in which people choose to pass through life...


The 4 Teams:

"BUSY BODIES"

They need so many things. They are busy entertaining themselves in search for happiness...







"BOOK WORMS"

They also want to be happy. They look for happiness by acquiring knowledge...








"KEEPERS OF THE TRUTH"

They are the ones who fight for social justice. They want happiness for all...








"SEEKERS!"

They long for the Great... They also want happiness, and they search for it in the Infinite Ocean of Love...







The children started playing the...
