Many people focus on a single chakra – like the crown chakra for spirituality, the brow chakra for psychic powers, the heart chakra for universal love, the solar plexus for power (especially for those into the martial arts) and so on – each chakra’s special attribute. And some people try to repress the ‘lower’ chakras as morally bad. But – the real importance is to understand the chakras as the energy system of the entire mind/body/spirit complex.
Wheels of Life presents the chakra system as a “Formula for Wholeness and a Template for Transformation” – actually a “Map for the Journey through Life.”
“Chakras are centers of activity for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies. As all our actions and understandings arise from and return to points within ourselves, our chakras, as core centers form the coordinating network of our complicated mind/body system. …. The chakras are the master programs that govern our life, loves, learning and illumination. Like a rainbow bridge, they form the connecting channel between mind and body, spirit and matter, past and future, heaven and earth. As we spin through the tumultuous times of our present era, the chakras are the gears that turn the spiral of evolution, drawing our attention toward the still untapped frontiers of consciousness and its infinite potential.” (from Chapter One)
The journey is taken step by step, with each step bringing practical advantages in the development of inherent skills and abilities to meet the increasingly critical challenges of life in our times. Your life is filled with meaning and purpose. Its destiny is enlightenment. Now, you must take the first step.
