Welcome to Mandalam
The word 'mandalam' as used in this website simply means 'circle'. The center of a circle is where one starts to explore the nature and content of that circle. If we look upon ourselves as circles of energy, the center of our circle is where our deepest nature lies, a nature that expresses itself outward filling and expanding that circle with the delight of its own creativity, a unique being having a unique experience.
The various books and articles on 1cosmicenergy.com, especially the two volumes on freedom described below, are journys into various aspects of 'self' as center and of its expressions in the land of experience we perceive as the physical plane of existence.
There is only one admonition for whoever journeys upon these trails. They must remember that the only limits upon consciousness are self-imposed. Learn to identify these limits, neutralize them, then take a wild ride on a consciousness without limitations.
The center of consciousness. is everywhere and expands unconditionally in all directions if given its freedom. Only the narrowed focus of our attention restrains it. Free your focus, listen to, and experience the ocean of unrestrained consciousness, and therein find freedom, the adventure of self-actualization and the cosmic mystery contained within the ultimate life-giving act of sustainability.
Volume 1 and Volume 2 of Freedom: What it is and How to Achieve it, consist of a series of essays forming two distinct but connected narratives. The first narrative which is contained in Volume 1 focuses on the complete human experience, of how spirit expresses itself within a physical environment, how the self we perceive as personality and ego comes into being and how that self interacts with other selves to create the relational world in which we play out our individual and collective dramas.
The second part, Volume 2 of the narrative dwells upon the task of humanity upon this planet, a task that requires self-actualization toward a state of awareness and level of consciousness more other-concerned than self-concerned. This other-concerned state of awareness is one which will hopefully catapult humanity beyond its present acquisitive mindset that has created the ecological crises we and the other species on this planet presently face, toward a more parsimonious and sharing state of awareness.
