BACK & DRAINED OUT

I am back - successful in business, drawback in emotions. While seated at a restaurant yesterday evening in the neighboring city that I visited, one the songs played ("My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion - theme song of the film Titanic) was a hot favorite of my late sister Tina Kahn (late wife of Aaron Kahn and mother of Amar Joshua). I was visibly disturbed. The song was liked by her a lot when she was in school. I recall her playing it over and over again much to the irritation of my late mom. What a waste of fantastic looks and great intelligence. All her schooling at Mumbai's elite Cathedral School and her doctorate (Biochemistry) at an Ivy League in NY have been futile. She died in Canada in a horrific car crash (in a state of inebriation) after she stomped out of the house after one of her regular fights with her husband. These days her husband and son live with the paternal grandparents parents in Tel Aviv. Well, I can't say anything more. I need to rest.

Deserts are defined by precipitation rate, not veg .(Actually by evaporation rate to be more specific)

What defines a desert?

A desert is defined simply by the amount of rainfall that falls in an area in conjunction with the amount of evaporation. In essence, its any area that receives on average less than 10 inches of rainfall per year, and where the yearly evaporation is more than 10 inches of rain a year.

No argument here. I always defer to the experts.

Why are coastal deserts usually found on the western margins of continents - examples: Namib in Africa , Atacama in Chile, the Atlantic Coastal Desert of Morocco, or the deserts of Baja California?

QUESTION:

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

MAYA ANGELOU:

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

QUESTIONS:

1) What did May mean by the self?

2) Can this self that she talked about be attained to by remaining "silent"? How?

3) What does she mean by "quietude" or by "silence"?

4) What does she mean by "voice of God"?

5) Did she know the vast difference that exists between God and Absolute?

6) What does she mean by God?

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?
