series: Ripping HUGE, gaping holes in the patently false new age bullshit
Today's dose of new age bullshit it brough to you by a vietnam vet: Drunvalo Melchizedek, self proclaimed "Flower-of-Life".
Drunvalo Melchizedek drivel turns a blind eye to patent facts of reality:
" An important factor in spiritual development is the socalled pituitary gland in the middle of the brain. It is a kind of spiritual eye, and in fact it is an eye, it is hollow, it has a lense, it has colorreceptors."
it has a what and a who? Let's throw physiology right out the window.
"Only through a wrong kind of breathintechnique we made it fall asleep."
By not breathing correctly I sleep? Riiiiight.
"Beside oxygene, our atmosphere contents another, very important kind of energy, refered to as Prana, Chi, Orgon, Od, Mana etc."
Scoop me up some of that unmeasurable energy! (So I can re-energize my magicallistic crystal doohickeys)
" It is the universal lifeforce energy itself. "
No, it's pretty much just air. And a little pollution.
"Without this energy, we would die immediately."
No, without air we'd each die in about 4 minutes.
" In our civilisation we breath prana together with the air through the nose. But there is a better way for breathing."
Yeah, it's called quit smoking hallucinogens.
"At first we have to know, that inside our body, in front of the spine, the socalled pranatube is present, which reaches from one handspan over the head down to one handspan below the feet."
Wow, that was just so clear. What is this mysticallistic thing in my body? I don't remember that from any physiology courses. hmmmm... maybe I was breathing wrongly too much in class.
" If we breath in the right way (Pranayama), we breath in prana by the tool of imagination, from the bottom below and from the upper end of the pranatube."
So I should stop inhaling air and begin transmagically consuming air with my pituitary gland and it magictastically "flows" into that new as yet unsketched invisiorgan in my body. OK, I'm with you so far.
" The prana will follow our attention"
Wait, I just think and air goes somewhere? Can this amazing power be applied to slightly heavier objects as well? Quick, call the networks!
" and if the prana is flowing in from above and below, meeting in the heartchakra, it will reactivate and energise the whole body and the pituitary gland in the same way."
So I need to be surrounded by breathable air BUT NOT INHALE IT and somehow it goes to this newfangled heartchakra, not to be confused with such organs as the heart and lungs which both show on CT scans, and it will provide my body with fuel that I would normally get by eating? Check. Stop breathing, and stop eating and...
" Once the pituitary gland is reactivated, "
Hey, look it's a pituitary gland again.
"we will experience multidimensional events,"
I'm already a multidimensional creature. Big woop.
" like telepathy, clearvoyance, intuition, contact to the Higher Self etc"
Oh, then you should be winning the lottorey EVERY SINGLE TIME. Wait, so why are you hocking bullshit from your puny website? hmmmmmm sketchy.
" This can change your whole perception and interpretation of the one reallity in a very dramatic way."
Yeah, lot's of money can do that. But you won't have many perceptions after you cease breathing and eating as prescribed above.
" But nobody did ever complain about that... "
oh, oh, me, me! pick me. I'm not down with stopping breathing, thank you, no.
"This techniques are going to be presented at the FOL workshop. "
yup, more crap to hock since your amazing lotto powers are on the fritz again.
"But also in the world wide web, some Merkabatechniques from several authors are existing. Some of them are simply not working, but some others are really dangerous."
no, really? People get hurt from buying into your new age bullshit? Go figure.
Tune in next time for some debunking of " 'sacred' geometry " bullshit
If nothing else Drunvalo Melchizedek, self proclaimed "Flower-of-Life", is an affront to the wisdom and humility of the real The Little Flower:
Pray for us Saint Therese!
Little Flower Novena
Prayers to be said each day:
Come Holy Spirit and fill the hearts of the faithful, and kindle in them the fire of divine love.
V. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray: O God, who have instructed the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit; grant that by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be ever truly wise and rejoice in His consolation, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love: O my God! I believe in Thee: strengthen my faith. All my hopes are in Thee: do Thou secure them. I love Thee: teach me to love Thee daily more and more.
The Act of Contrition: O my God! I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but most of all because they offend You, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance , and to amend my life. Amen.
Concluding Prayer Prayed Each Day:
O Lord, You have said: Unless you become as little children you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven; grant us, we beg You, so to follow, in humility and simplicity of heart, the footsteps of the Virgin blessed Thérèse, that we may attain to an everlasting reward. Amen.
