The word 'mandalam' as used in this website simply means 'circle'. Within every circle there is a center, and that center is where the deepest nature of that circle lies. 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 to fill the 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 above, are journys into various aspects of 'self' as center and of its expressions in the land of experience and personality. Some of these journeys are narrative in nature, some more scholastic, some purely experiential,but all may serve as roadmaps to deeper, higher, more expansive expression of the pure consciousness at the center of our being. 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.
