The Goddess Waltz is my attempt to thread whispering fragments from my past into a cohesive understanding of my soul’s journey. As I reconstructed life’s spiritual nuggets into a meaningful mosaic, a memoir reassembled from Hermann Hesse’s broken mirror of the human personality. Whenever the maelstrom tossed me into the devil’s heart, a kernel of conscious awareness always sifted its way through the darkness, slowing the plumb bob of desire from its wild swings into past conditionings. The sacred present lives in the space between each breath ... a symphony of divine compassion and love conducted by the Goddess of the Cool Breeze.

Author Dev Prana considers himself a Muslim on Fridays, a Jew on Saturdays, a Christian on Sundays, and a Buddhist on Mondays. Regardless of the faith he explores on any given day, each and every day he tries to be a walking embodiment of love, peace, and kindness. He is a student of religion, but it was not always this way. Twenty years ago, as he sought peace through study, he ended up tumbling over life's purpose. Spiritual Quest of a Baby Yogi is one seeker's search for truth amidst the many religions of the modern world and his eventual realization that all religions lead to one Father of the Universe. No matter the book Quran or Bible and no matter the figure Buddha or Jesus Christ all spiritual striving focuses on the similar foundations of unconditional love, nonviolence, and inner peace. As human beings, it is important we make an honest attempt to seek God in order to achieve enlightenment. We are different races with different beliefs, but we share this earth as one. Together, we can fill it with peace and love, but we must first make a spiritual connection with the higher power. It is time to become devout students of spirituality in order to make this world a better place.

Forty years ago, in May of 1959, His Holiness Maharishi Ma-hesh Yogi first visited the United States of America. It seems only fitting to bring out a commemorative edition of the book written by my mother in 1967 wherein she described the adventures of Maharishi's first summer in this country. It is a book so like Maharishi, a tender story told simply about a great man with a superhuman goal. During these forty years, I have had the opportunity to quietly witness this great man going about the manifestation of a phenomenal vision-a vision based on the principle that everyone should naturally and innocently live 200 percent of life: one hundred percent inner spiritual joy along with one hundred percent outer material satisfaction. Maharishi wanted to bring humankind out of suffering and restore to us our rightful human dignity. He envisioned a world in which its citizens could enjoy a life free from problems-an ideal life based in good, useful and virtuous thoughts, words and actions; where we could enjoy the blessings of spontaneous good health, excellent and effective systems of education for our children, increased economic prosperity, and improved social well-being on all levels of society; where the spiritual ideals of all religions could be realized and lived in daily life; and, most importantly, where we could live in lasting world peace and real friend-ship with one another. And Maharishi offered a simple, powerful solution for realizing that goal-an easy, natural, mental technique that he called Transcendental Meditation, which allows anyone to develop his or her full potential while simultaneously nourishing the surrounding environment.....

In this continuation of our speculations and conjectures about brain dynamics as it pertains the attainment of the introspective self conscious state and the concomitant brain proto language faculty activation -both sine qua non antecedents to the decision making process- we are now trying to get a clearer picture about what seems to our species confusion of consciously experiencing two simultaneous but opposing perspectives of the same existential 4-d reality and how it may impact the conscious free judgment on the priority to be assigned to any important and relevant issue to the human species. Which one should we adopt to guide our lives today and the day after tomorrow? Of course we are more concerned with the above average responsible citizen looking beyond the conveniences of a quotidian hedonistic Sartrean existentialism where pleasurable enjoyment is routinely satisfied ahead of known but ignored necessities for the lasting survival of the human species generations ahead. How can we reconcile these seemingly opposing views we need to take into account? This realistic approach is called compromise, hybridization or complementarity and the assumption that hidden variables -if any- beyond human brain phenomenological or combinatorial threshold would always bring Heisenberg-type uncertainties to reckon with. These can be either the choice of exclusive biopsychosocial (BPS) imperatives for any living species survival as opposed to the altruistic, spiritual life against self interests of the historical prophets or the more familiar Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen (EPR) complementarities between the position of a particulate object of mass (m) and its momentum when we try to measure them. Likewise for energy and time. Underlying these seemingly opposite/contrasting appearances are subthreshold physical interactions. These considerations force you to adopt a quantum statistical probabilistic view of reality relying on falsifiability, predictability and mathematical logic manipulations of symbolic representations of measurable/observed facts. But when it comes to human judgments these coexisting complementarities, i.e., the subconscious species survival BPS imperative drives we share with other evolved species to stay alive now and then and the conscious species survival across generations sacrifices a few were willing to endure against self interest, resist being framed into coherent rules of metaphysical logic for analysis..
