COMMENT: A very ignorant quote by Maya Angelou.
"The power of the concentration in the heart-centre is to open that centre and by the power of aspiration, love, bhakti, surrender remove the veil which covers and conceals the soul and bring forward the soul or psychic being to govern the mind, life and body and turn and open them all fully to the Divine, removing all that is opposed to that turning and opening."

I think in the mid-latitudes most deserts lie on the west - why?

How does the Coriolis Force, if at all, contributes to desertification in al latitudes where deserts are found?

That is a very difficult yogic discipline.

Once the Psychic comes to the forefront from behind the veils of the mental, vital and physical planes it can better organize these planes, psychichize them and open them up to the cosmic equivalents of the mind, vital and gross physical and at the same time it can ascend to the higher planes beyond mind and unite with them.

To bring down the peace and quiet of the higher cosmic planes requires a descent from above - the descent of the cosmic peace/cosmic silence has to take place from as high as the Higher Mind to begin with. It's a very exacting yogic process.

When a mystic is struck on any of the cosmic vital planes and has no knowledge of the higher planes then he's not powerful nor divinized enough nor knowledgeable and besides he has none of the cosmic peace in his lower instrumental parts of mind, vital and body and as such he curses, abuses, threatens, maims, enslaves, kills, engineers genocides, offers blood sacrifices, turns intolerant and in short he works for an asuric power of the power and becomes asuric in karma.

Understand?

This is what Maya Angelou said:

"Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God."

So, where did she say whether it would be easy or difficult to listen to the voice of something that she called God?

Leaving aside the exacting yogic process of psychichization, the dead author did not even know the meaning of soul.

She did not even know the difference between soul and self.

Moses, Abraham, Elijah and Jesus did not know about the psychic (soul) nor about the self and were under the naive impression that the life force (an aspect of the cosmic vital) constituted the soul - so if these prophets were clueless about the psychic and about the self, then, what to speak about Maya who had not the least idea nor experience of any of the subtler planes.

BTW, there' s a vast difference between soul and self.

Its very sad that you find the practice of loving-kindness so difficult

To many others, its really quite simple

and no need to over intellectualize - thats just a barrier you put up

But thats not true - Syria, Turkey, Mongolia, American Great Basin are in mid latitudes

Since deserts are often defined by evaporation rates, perhaps you should examine solar aspects first, and then move on to precip patterns.

I asked - why are (most) deserts in mid lats on the western sides of continents?(there is a reason for this).

Is the Coriolis force responsible in any way for the formation of deserts?

Formation of deserts covers maybe 3 or 4 core reasons.

Low precipitation or high rate of evaporation is an effect of these 3 or 4 reasons.

..........

What I typed on the subject (read above) is the actual way the psychichization takes place...supramentalization is even more difficult.

Well, as said, when even so-called prophets like Moses, Abraham, Elijah and Jesus knew nothing about the soul and the self and were misled into believing that the soul in man is the life force, then, well, it is understandable given their inferior mystical experiences but at least they had some inferior mystical experiences, while Maya Angelou was a pure ignoramus.

But your premise is flawed. Deserts are equally scattered among all latitudes and sides.
