Take time for self.
The kundalini rises from muladhara chakra up a subtle channel at the base of the spine (called Sushumna), and from there to top of the head merging with the sahasrara, or crown chakra. When kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess, then, when it rises to the head, it unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva). Then the aspirant becomes engrossed in deep meditation and infinite bliss.
The arousing of kundalini is said by some to be the one and only way of attaining Divine Wisdom. Self-Realization is said to be equivalent to Divine Wisdom or Gnosis or what amounts to the same thing: self-knowledge. The awakening of the kundalini shows itself as “awakening of inner knowledge” and brings with itself “pure joy, pure knowledge and pure love.”

When your mind turns to body horror, you generally think of tentacles and geysers of bloods, not garlands and bursts of twinkling confetti. But indeed, that is what precipitates in director Andrew Thomas Huang’s experimental fantasy film Solipsist. Human flesh evolves into living dreamcatchers and eddies of colored sand. It is equal parts stunning and utterly bizarre.
Solipsist, which was funded via Kickstarter, won the Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival. You can also watch a making-of reel if the flamboyant effects have piqued your interest. Here’s the synopsis, but “Tetsuo’s final scene from Akira + Mardi Gras” may be just as apt:
A three part psychedelic fantasy short film about otherworldly beings whose minds and bodies converge into one entity. Filled with elaborate costumes, visual effects, and underwater puppets, the film is a non-narrative experience designed to transport viewers through a hypnotic, dream-like journey.
