Psychic equity is the phrase used to represent your emotional stability progression which decides your material as well as spiritual advancement. I have just completed my book 'Pragmatic Leadership' for Mc Graw Hill (India) in which I elaborated this concept in detail. In this series I wish to give an excerpt of my book.
Great Masters say our life energy rises through 7 centres in our spine called 'chakras' depending on our efforts to raise them through 'sadhanas'. The lowest state of energy is called 'Muladhara' which resides at the bottom most part of spine medically called coccyx. The other name for this chakra is 'sex centre' as it is closer to reproductive organ.
This is where our tail was there when we were monkey before. The tail disappeared as we grew in our stature in consciousness. This symbolically says that the purpose of becoming human from animal is to raise our state of consciousness and not loosing tail alone.
This life energy state is symbolised as a serpent as it sleeps in a coil form till it is awakened. It is not a physical entity but metaphysical which means you cannot find it by scanning electron microscope.
At Muladhara state of our consciousness and being, we will be in body state of consciousness, focusing on indulgence only. This means one will be always oriented in carnal pleasures like eating, drinking, sleeping, having sex etc. Gita calls this state as 'Tamasic' state of consciousness in which the person is generally fit for nothing as he consumes resources but adds no value. Person of this kind will destroy the planet by doing nothing.
The colour that denotes Muladhara chakra is RED which is at the lowest rung of light spectrum in frequency. It is not coincident that 'Red' signifies danger but it is chosen intelligently as you can't see a red colour for very long time as it hurts your eye as well as psyche.
When we were young we were always keen to look ourselves in the mirror and groom our hair all the time. This state is called body consciousness in which body alone is the reality and centre of life to enjoy carnal pleasures. You will notice young people like Red colour car as their predominant energy is in Muladhara chakra. That is the way life starts. You will not find a matured senior guy using a red colour car unless he still resides in the Muladhara state.
As we grow we find it is not enough to feed the body alone with pleasures but our emotions are important. Slowly body focus loses its significance and mind focus takes over. If you experience hair fall at 25 you are devastated but at 40 you would not mind and feel it is a sign of wisdom.
Let me stop here and continue the next chakra in the next post.
Love you allWith whole of my heart
