on the Thousand-Petaled Lotus
Fryderyk Chopin's Etude in A
Robert Schuman said, "A la Chopin"
of Chopins concert performance, during which he presented his
Etudes Opus 25. Having mastered a wide range of performing arts, Chopin
developed a piano technique which never captured the listeners
attention for its own sake.
Masterful construction of the two
sets of Etudes op. 10 and op. 25, each containing twelve compositions,
later supplemented by the Trois Nouvelles Etudes, prompted some music
scholars to define the Etudes as the very pinnacle of Chopin's creativity,
and to regard them as the most magnificent fruit of his genius.
have seen how easy it is through meditation and the giving of mantras
to raise the sacred fire and to begin to have deep inner experiences
in the mysteries of God. Alternatively, the use of the sacred fire in
sex has its highest culmination in the bringing forth of children within
the circle of a marriage dedicated to God. When it is not for the purpose
of bringing forth children, it is for the purpose of balancing energies
between man and woman in the married state.
"That balance of energy may also be achieved by the raising of the energies of the spine and their consecration in each of the chakras until finally there is the opening of the thousand- petaled lotus through the crown chakra. The bliss of this experience cannot be described and it cannot be compared to any earthly bliss. It is beyond what anyone could even imagine he could experience in this life. The bliss of that union of the Father/Mother God far outweighs that of any other union.
"And yet until man and woman have tasted of that fruit, many, of course, prefer the sexual experience.
Q: Are you saying, then, that enlightenment is related to inner wholeness?
ECP: I would say
enlightenment is related to the raising of the energies of the Mother
to become one with the Father within the self. Enlightenment comes through
contact with God."
