How to Tap into the Fortune at the Top of the Pyramid?

…contd

One can tap into the Fortune at the Top of the Pyramid by developing the intellect – the ability of right discrimination, being conscious of and handling one’s thought process, making right communication, being intuitive and creative, heightened level of awareness are some of the manifestations of awakened Visuddhi and Ajna Chakras. These chakras pavé the way for evolution of intellect – the differentiating factor and unique gift of humanity.

Development of the intellectual potential is determined by the level of evolution in these chakras.

The Sri Yantra described in Indian scriptures has upright triangles and inverted triangles. While the upright triangles depict the gross, the inverted triangles depict the subtle. As the gross fades and tapers at the top, the subtle power manifests stronger.  By depicting both the triangles – upright and inverted in the Sri Yantra, we are advised to keep up the balance between the gross and subtle elements in us and evolve in a holistic manner.

True intellectual development and evolution is thus determined by,

the extent to which one evolves in the subtle aspects of creativity, intuition and spontaneity…

The beginning is always at the gross level. The gross intellect supported by inquiry, reasoning and logic should pavé way to the subtle intellect which is developed based on Shraddha (faith). This makes one creative, intuitive and help think outside the box.

The gross intellect is divisive, differentiating, methodical, structured and distinctive by nature and help develop rational thinking. This divisive nature of the gross needs to be balanced by the abstract, convergent and inclusive nature of the subtle intellect.

Breaking the routine, evolution of new ways; through integrated, out-of-the-box approach is an attribute of creativity and innovation. Flying an airplane, conversing over long distances through telephone, data transfer at high speeds, etc., are some examples where man’s life-style has evolved by breaking the pre-existing limiting beliefs in a systematic way.

harmony between the head and the heart…

The general debate about balancing the head and heart is related to the gross intellect of the head and the heart. The heart by nature is all-inclusive and a symbol of love, peace and compassion.

The gross intellect being divisive and distinctive by nature is always in conflict with the inclusive aspect of the heart. By evolving the all-inclusive nature of subtle intellect harmony is established between the head and heart.

balance one achieves in external and internal environments…

external involvement with the world should be balanced with the internal environment. One need to take time to spend with oneself. A few moments of silence and self-introspection everyday helps. Daily journal, meditation and antarmouna practices enhances one’s internal clarity, creativity and spontaneity which manifests as efficient functioning in day-to-day problem solving, decision-making, stress handling, etc.,.

evolving beyond science into the domain of spirituality…

Note the terminology. It is not devoid of science, but beyond science. Rational and inquiry nature of science helps one to understand the hitherto inexplicable ways of nature. Spirituality in one sense may be defined as those aspects of nature not cognizable by senses and hence not available for scientific verification. Scope of scientific knowledge expands by inquiring and experimenting with pre-stated universal and spiritual laws.

An interesting TED talk on the subject…

Science depends on experiments and proofs. Proofs are limited by sensory limitations. To expand the horizons of science, one need to expand the horizons of sensory limitations. One need to develop subtle awareness to dwell deep and evolve beyond sensory inputs. Greatest scientific discoveries have thus happened. Quantum physics, telepathy, psychological science, etc., are some aspects of science which dwell in this space.
