The shiva space technology extends far into the mind and towards outer space. Microcosm and macrocosm shed their boundaries on the peripheries and are replaced by a common thread – which is what is all time and space. There is only the presence of Maya or illusion which makes play real, seem real but loses the charm the very moment one looks deeper into either space or self.
Shiva Space technology is our attempt to keep into our memory what our ancestors saw a while back on earth (or maybe somewhere else – in the depths of their dreams of collective consciousness or on another solar system’s planet circling nuclear energy). Shiva space technology is the reason we all pray here to the crystal structure – a rock/ a lingam / a mark of enlightenment if it can be said like that.
I have been fascinated with the mark of God if it can be so said – The lingam is an ancient formation to worship and has been uni dimensionally associated with Shiva and enlightenment, in traditional aspects it represents the mark of consciousness in the void of power. If the universe has been formed via dark energy – then the lingam marks light and conscious behavior of this power – to recognize itself and then dissolve back into the endless ocean of vast energy.
The lingam in this term is the phallus penetrating the void of the Yoni, and this iconography works well with most of the religious-spiritual aspirants, as this is also the conversion of the base sexual energy towards cosmic orgasm. This form of orgasm can be achieved through human contact (Through copulation) but with the intention of achieving a grander scheme to look at life. This indeed is the mark of the lingam through the base of the spine towards the mind.
The lingam is a particular rock – and rock worship is the most ancient form of idol worship available – and why is this? For ancient folks in their wisdom understood that rocks actually collected and stored solar energy (Rocks like silica/quartz etc can do this quite efficiently and are used in our micro transistors as well). This solar energy is light – a mark of consciousness and to worship the same we could pray to something which stored it within its physical body.
This is another explanation and the one which works best with me – for all worship, meditation and prayer is energy movement or stagnation depending on will or intention. The energy movement can be in base domains or towards realizing something outside the egoistic life we all are bound to know and live within. This can happen by natural worship (worshipping natural deities – which are forms of energy with gross vibrations like water, wind, and fire and of course the earth or its extension – ancient rocks). The rocks like spadiga are crystals which have been time forever been worshipped as linga in most Hindu families and are passed on from one generation to another. This makes me wonder whether the Shiva lingam worship had started as a form of rock/stone worship to attain and capture the solar energy of the stone within oneself (indeed this would prove to be the point when folks wear various form of stone necklaces around themselves to get the energy – or even on rings. Various stones like emerald, sapphire etc. cause of their colour frequencies are tuned to a certain form or vibration of the solar energy.
Now I am up for another explanation all together – that the lingam or the mark also resembles the ancient microcosmic sperm or the famous and powerful entheogen called the Psilocybin Mushroom (or the amanita muscaria mushroom), both of which have a stem followed on top by a top – resembling the phallus and of course the sperm head. This structure is pretty common in nature and represents the travelling of the consciousness within the endless boundaries measure of dark energy. This makes sense too as most ancient religions and cultures have ingested this entheogen and have worshipped it for time immemorial. Mushrooms are the most common entheogen which extend across geographies and continents. It is indeed a powerful twisting mind psyche as well. Apart from what they provide as a temporary recreational entity – they create a long lasting almost permanent change in the psyche and self – extending from the spine upwards. This is what experiences have taught myself; the kind of change that one faces now is not just temporary lasting for some number of hours but a permanent ever new expression (this happens only if one pays attention to what one is experiencing and is forced to experience through the ingestion)
Now there comes another idea in my mind – looking and praying to the shiva linga – seems as if our ancient forefathers were looking towards an oracle ball; or a device which could give them answers – answers like the laptop or the IPad does in this day and age. This seems to be another convincing argument for me; to worship it; maybe it was an oracle ball which showed visions when drowned in water and hence the practice of dipping the shiva linga in water – as if the method could invoke a technologically advanced process of able to see the inner sphere.
There is also the simple yet powerful explanation that the linga is a representation of the third eye itself (ajna). This is the pineal gland – which is responsible, as we know it for creating the experiences of day and night. Of sleep and being awake and of course the theta stage. The pineal gland is indeed the doorway to the next world – or the world which we neglect to see from our two waking eyes. It is one which is always awake; in all stages. It is a clock – which counts the number of breaths which we take and when we must enter the void through it. Back to the nascent stage of energy. All enlightened masters – make use of the pineal gland and make it through to their self divinity (stored in the heart). The worship of the linga – it is as if it was the pineal gland, which is the source of all energy and life – consciousness, bathed in water (like shiva is always bathed through ganga). The energy is cooled and refreshed (it exists rather persists in the dark minus Celsius of the universe, and dissipates itself in heat – of the sun and nuclear energy, hence the iconography of shiva being always in cold places and worshipped as the stone phallus?
There are many such thoughts which enter my head when dealing with an abstract method of worship centred on rocks and stones. Most people would see this as primitive but somewhere I feel that we are behind in our experiences, this day to day life which has so confused that we fail to see what our ancestors focused upon was the central truth – that which sets one free while bound to a body and its consequences.
The shiva linga was the technique – it was more than a method – perhaps a device – an experience and an esoteric truth; perhaps it was all that and many other things left unsaid.
