Our Life-Destiny is Conceived Through the Confluence of Three Rivers
Our life-destiny is conceived through the confluence of three (what we yogis call) rivers — the Cosmological River (path of the soul's incarnations); the Genealogical River (path of the bloodline—the family tree); and the chronological experiential River (path of this lifetime's experiences). Our DNA controls the Genealogical River and this river contributes one-third of our path to our destiny. Bio-chemically: DNA consists of two polymer spirals (the double helix it is called); the structure is made of sugar crystals known as deoxyriboses (hence, Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid) and salt crystals (known as phosphates). These crystals are joined together by enzymes using their electro-magnetic interactions.
What does this mean in terms of our human experience? At the most basic level it means DNA crystals carry our life's observations, sensations and conversations using these crystals to transmit sub-chemical energies of electricity, magnetism, and light . . . at the deepest levels of this conversation. This is known scientifically as epigenetics. DNA as an optical (light-based) system uses these microscopic salt and sugar crystals to refract, reflect, magnify and de-magnify genetic messages from the full light spectrum that surrounds us.
These frequencies carry the meaning, the purpose and the evolving nature of the bloodline through timespace. This is the nature of the physical body. It carries the consciousness throughout life. The human body is the highest and most evolved instrument for working with this procession of consciousness.
There is a subtle message being broadcast here; your DNA, along with this message present identity to your consciousness. It is a light based system of color and a sound based system of tones (Shabd in Sanskrit). Through the pressures this sound creates, it generates electro-magnetic fields which control and move the angles of the microscopic of salt and sugar crystals. These crystals then work with the angles of light to move the messages. The clarity is increased or decreased; the understanding is increased or decreased; the comprehension is increased or decreased and the whole system experiences the experience or does not. You are either growing or you are not.
Our consciousness determines where we are (our progress) within this massive procession of evolution. Remember: consciousness is the only part of you that travels with you from life-time to life-time. It is a marker of your evolutionary soul progress. The ultimate goal of all this progression is to become the messenger of the message that all things have a profound unity — all things are one. This is GOD consciousness.
Since sound controls these crystals, they are directly affected by the sounds of your words, all your emotions and feelings, all your thoughts, perceptions and opinions and all your attitudes. Discipline, discipline, discipline . . . this is the reason we practice yoga, chant mantras, recite prayers (grace before meals), sing songs of inspiration, sing songs of love, recite banis (sacred prayers of the enlightened ones), read scriptures (sacred writings of the enlightened ones). We do all of this to discipline our sounds. This is why there are so many diverse practices and ways of disciplining the sounds we make with our voices and with our thoughts. This is why it is so important to speak properly, apologize rapidly, forgive quickly and evolve your being and inspire others
Take the time to discipline yourself and grow in excellence and consciousness so that your life is fulfilled and becomes an inspiration to all who meet you. This is your greatest possible fulfillment of life.
