JJ Sempleabout this book: Most initiates understand that kundalini opens new vistas of human cosmology, metaphysics, and higher consciousness, tempting them describe their experience to friends, family, and even to strangers. I've spoken with many individuals who do this. What they're not aware of — especially in the first rush of kundalini ecstasy — is their descriptions are usually incoherent. This is normal; everything seems to happen at once. Standard vocabulary is rarely up to the task of describing the phenomenon.
In these instances, however, not only does the individual lose credibility, the whole topic of kundalini tends to attract more scorn, skepticism, and ridicule. Kundalini doesn't need this; there are enough outsiders who already doubt its actuality. It's better to pause before blurting out and rambling; sometimes it's even better to say nothing, get your bearings, even study a bit until you've had time to assimilate the overpowering effects of kundalini.
And that's where this book comes in. It allows both initiates and adepts to grasp the totality of kundalini experience. Although kundalini is too vast a topic for any one book to be hailed as definitive, Kundalini Musings both clarifies and demystifies it, explaining in simple everyday language not only its more abstract metaphysical aspects, but also how to awaken it permanently and how to live with it.
The metamorphosis kundalini imposes — whether immediate or gradual — can be difficult to accept and integrate into your life, making you easy prey to impulse, instability, or inertia.
In my case, although I didn't plan it that way, sometime around 1965 I found myself on a solitary path, gradually intensifying my efforts to awaken it and marveling as serendipitous happenstance propelled me forward.
I was in my mid-twenties then. Within seven years I would upend my mostly conventional life, undergo a complete metamorphosis, culminating in a permanent kundalini awakening. It's been over 40 years since that day. Now approaching my 81st year, I believe it's fitting to expand on my experience at the same time I continue to study and understand the effects kundalini has visited on me over the decades. Kundalini Musings is a compendium of these efforts.
