Energy cultivation is made up of: * Posture and physical relaxation - to give the energy paths to flow along * Breathing - to generate and move the energy * Intention - to direct the energy (Chi follows Yi.) Japanese Martial arts DOES all this. They just choose not to talk about it, they don't focus their intention to connect the sexual energy to the brain in a permanent way, nor do they use ALL the pipes. They just wire up the bits they need to do the martia l work and let the rest take care of itself. (Which it will do in time with enough meditation - Ueshiba is a great example) The focus is more often to direct the energy into the technique itself. That feeling that you feel when you really get into the Zone, when spontaneous movement is happening and you feel totally relaxed and invincible. That may well be a temporary and small Kundalini event. You are connected up inside and something unusual is happening. After practice Kundalini goes back to sleep a nd you don't really notice it. There is a big difference between "just" running energy and being even partially Kundalini Awakened. To say that you are Kundalini Awakened means that at some point you have managed to get the wires between sex and brain c onnected and run energy through them. You may not have connected all the other stuff up, but the straight wire between sex and brain has connected. This is a significant, defining event, and it leaves a trace that is detectable by people who have been through the Greater Kan and Li. The event might even already have happened a long time ago and you didn't really recognise it, or don't remember it. When you consistently work on the energy three things happen. 1. Your "pipes" get bigger , and blockage s in the pipes are gradually dissolved by the energy running through them - that is to say you can "carry more current". But only in the places you actually do send energy through. (Some blocks can also be helped by acupuncture.) 2. Your "generator" gets more powerful - that is to say that you can "generate more current" (In fact each chakra is a mini generator that you activate by breathing into it) 3. Your intent (hopefully) becomes more concentrated - you can use the current to do what you want to do rather than just exploding in all sorts of uncontrolled lightning bolts.
The big traumatic Kundalini process that Glenn went through is what happens when you have a huge generator with big pipes that have significant blockages and a few places where t he wire is really really thin because energy had never gone there before.
Imagine the wiring diagram for such a machine and what happens when you turn the "switch on". Taking a posture, generating energy with breath, directing the energy upwards with you r intention and then touching your tongue in the top of your mouth to complete the central circuit. SPARK! Result = Fried brain, fried kidneys etc. Even for someone who is very used to running progressively increasing amounts of energy through all the channels they can reach, the “BIG THING” does still happen. Imagine you have plugged the wires from sexual chakra and all the chakras together into the brain and you are in a nice open posture so the energy can flow and you are breathing to generate increasing amounts of energy and send the energy around and you are directing the energy up the spine towards the brain, it all still tends to fall apart when you stop concentrating on it. At some point though, there comes a time when a certain critical vo ltage is hit and the wires FUSE together. This sets off a second generator at the base of the spine that can only switch on when the fusing has happened. This propels a huge burst of energy up and out of the crown chakra towards the Stars/the Divine. The e nergy launches up and straight out of the body in an incredibly powerful way. It literally surges straight up through the central channel like a rocket. (Better hope to have your back straight at this point.) The body may jerk around as overspill from this hits the energy pipes of the rest of the body. How harsh it is depends on how much practice you have been doing to widen and unblock the pipes and how relaxed your body is at the time. The key difference between these two generators is that the energy generated by the first generator is directed by the mind. The energy that surges up the spine when the second stage kicks for the first time is completely beyond the control of the mind. This can feel pretty terrifying since the mind is not used to los ing control. This is where we put our trust in the Universe and reach up. After that, it is permanently connected. There is not a permanent awareness and ecstasy of the energy surging up the spine (would be kind of impractical anyway) but the channel is open and you can get the second generator to kick in anytime you bring the voltage in your body up high enough. That is called Greater Kan and Li or Full Kundalini Arousal. – The “BIG THING” Lesser Kan and Li In contrast to having Full Kundalini Arou sal (Greater Kan and Li), being Fully Kundalini Awakened (Lesser Kan and Li) means that that you can connect ALL the wires, run your first stage generator (and all the minor chakra generators) and make the energy go wherever you want. You get increased perception, fluidity of movement, and all that stuff, as long as you are actively running the energy. If you keep working at it you also get the amazing, if temporary, effects of really
running energy from your base chakra all the way through your crown chakr a with all the first stage generators running and all the pipes wide open. This is a sort of rehearsal for the “BIG THING” . (It is pretty amazing and it is sometimes mistaken for the “BIG THING” itself.) That's sometimes called the Lesser Kan and Li. So we have three stages 1. Kundalini is awake - We are working towards the Lesser Kan and Li 2. We are fully K - Awakened - Lesser Kan and Li 3. We have had a Full K-Arousal - Greater Kan and Li The labels may vary a bit in various schools but that's pretty much the way it seems to work. There are stages beyond that too. Greatest Kan and Li is what in the Christian tradition is symbolised by the Burning Heart. This is where we have used a full Kundalini Arousal event to reach up to the Divine and Grace has descended along the same channel as the energy surged up. By the Kundalini practice we have in fact prepared a dwelling place for Grace. But Grace descends only as far as the Heart center and radiates from there into the world. This enables us to do the Works of the Divine upon the Earth. Again at the beginning we will not be able to maintain the indwelling for very long as it is a very painful and raw experience which challenges our ego and mind a great deal. But as we practice raising the energy and allowing the Grace to indwell we can bear it for longer and longer periods until this too becomes permanent. When you open the pipes up the Love of the Divine radiates directly from your Heart center and people can FEEL it. It is like a huge beacon . (Of course whenever your Heart chakra is open you can always radiate a certain amount of loving/compassion energy but you have to generate it yourself.)
