(by G.) A magical Sangha evening realized.
The Psychic Development talk-set contains 6 talks; Selfless Giving, Dharma, The Caretaker Personality, Psychic Self-Defense, Places of Power, and Seeing.
These talks were recorded in 1985 at specific power places in the United States. Rama chose these locations because they emanated the essence of the topic he wished to discuss.
(by S.A.) Rama teaches that we’re born as luminous beings. Yet, from birth we become molded – away from our true luminous nature. We’re taught to look at ourselves in certain ways, to respond as we’re taught. Even if we rebel, we’re rebelling with a set of reactions that become our conditioned behavior. Then our lives turn into a series of patterns of reaction. And we see ourselves based on ideas we formulate internally about who we are. This is ego, and it's strengthened by our desires.
“Everyone is psychic. You are psychic. It is an ability that we all have. It's a part of your mind.... Psychic perception does not come through the thinking mind, nor does it come through emotional feelings -- it comes from the psychic plane of intuition -- another avenue within mind. To reach into that avenue, a stillness has to be developed, because the impressions from the psychic plane are clouded over by emotions and thoughts.
"It is very, very difficult to hear a radio station that might have wonderful music if there are two larger stations next to it on either side of it on the dial. The signal can be lost in the disturbance.
"So within you there is a continuous signal -- a continuous perception is taking place deep within the mind -- but it's hard to hear that signal because it is blurred over by your own thoughts, your desires, your fears. It is blurred over by your emotional swings. And as you live in this world, unless you live a very different type of life, you lose your sensitivity. You become dull. Sensitivity can be regained by leading your life differently." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“In order to practice magic, you need only one thing -- awareness. We have other selves that are not of this world, of this time, of this cycle. We are ancient beings, evolving forward and backwards simultaneously; we are not structured in time. We are eternal travelers, eternal voyagers -- appearing to be here when in fact we are somewhere else. And when you can contact yourself in that other place, when you can open up a kind of an inter-dimensional phone line between yourself and your various selves, when you become aware of that, that’s when magic begins. You enter another world -- a world of dreams." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
The On the Road with Rama transcripts capture the words of a wonderful tape set recorded in 1985 at different power places in the United States. Rama -Dr. Frederick P. Lenz specifically chose each location because the place emanated the essence of the topic he wished to discuss. Topics include Neutral Density, Unity, Magic, Electronic Tribe, Kundalini Yoga, Power and Transcendentalism.
