Key Definitions

The following key terms and their definitions are important to fully understand the body and mind control centers. Definitions are grouped according to their main subject. In addition, please note that many of these terms come from ancient Greek or Sanskrit esoteric writings which discuss the metaphysical sources of the positive effects experienced in self-development. Included are suggested books which offer further information about the given key definitions.

Key Terms of the Body

Stethos in ancient Greece. The source of thought and feeling, organs of the Soul used to interface with the outer world and lower heart. (See The Golden Triangle and Controlling Your Hormones.)

This key definition has been misunderstood. The breasts, known in ancient Greece as stethos, were defined in ancient Greek as “the seat of feelings and thought as we (currently) use heart.” (See Controlling Your Hormones.)

Center of the body in the perineum which is the center of control and feelings. This is not the beating heart in the chest. (See Joy and Evolution.)

The perineum is the area “between the thighs.” The ancient view of the perineum is derived with some digging into the roots of ancient Greek words. Peri means “enclosing” and neuma means “control” or that the perineum is the center or heart of control. (See American Meditation, The Handbook for Goats, The Golden Triangle, Creating Heaven on Earth, Directing Life, Joy and Evolution, and Controlling Your Hormones.)

The physiological muscle and flesh beneath the perineal skin. The bulbospongiosus (also called the bulbocavernosus), which means a sponge-like, contractile/expansive flesh, is also capable of forming a solid bulb such as noted when stepping into an icy cold shower. (See Controlling Your Hormones.)

This key definition identifies the feminine creative center of both sexes which exists in the perineum of both sexes, serving to stimulate the production of soma. (See The Golden Triangle and Controlling Your Hormones.)

Key Terms of Action

A special key term of an ancient practice of deliberately tensioning the body to gain the same benefits as from natural eustress responses. (See The Golden Triangle and Controlling Your Hormones.)

Called mantha in Sanskrit. Churning involves lower abdominal contortions which increase vitality and are commonly associated with deep sobbing. Churning can be experienced at times of strong demands on the body and mind. (See The Golden Triangle, Power for Change, Directing Life, and Joy and Evolution.)

Key Terms of Mind

Elements are the metaphysical building blocks of reality: “Air, Fire, and Water that consequently determine the nature of the fourth Element Earth. Earth, therefore, is then made real by Mind.” (See Directing Life.)

Mind is the metaphysical force that unites. The source of evolution, vision and the power of intention. Called Brahma in the ancient Sanskrit documents. (See American Meditation, The Handbook for Goats, The Philosophy of Patanjali, The Golden Triangle, Creating Heaven on Earth, Finding Power, and Directing Life.)

The word intention had an earlier meaning based on the Greek word upothesis and subsequently, it has the metaphysical definition of describing “that which has been settled before it begins.” Therefore, it is far more than the modern usage of being a plan of action or design. (See The Golden Triangle.)

Sanskrit key term for intention. It is the vision of what you want your self and world to be in the future. Mantra integrates your past and present with this intended future. (See The Golden Triangle.)

Key Terms of Energy

Symbol of creative power of the sun as well as the higher powers within an individual. (See The Golden Triangle.)

Energy is the power for change. (See The Handbook for Goats and Power for Change.)

Inner Power
The power to change yourself and your world without reliance on the external power of institutions or authorities. (See Power for Change, Creating Heaven on Earth.)

Power of Love
Called Eros in ancient Greek; Rudra and Bhairava in ancient Sanskrit. The inner power to manifest your intention. (See Creating Heaven on Earth, Joy and Evolution, and Controlling Your Hormones.)

Key Terms of Feelings

Good stress that counters bad stress. Coined by Hans Selye who explained how intentional “muscular, nervous activity or anything else that requires effort” could reduce unwanted (dis)stress. (See Controlling Your Hormones.)

Manifested intention. (See The Golden Triangle.)

Gut Feelings
Unusual feelings in the lower abdominal region, associated with inner insights and strength. (See Finding Power.)

Becoming vitalized, stimulated, more alive. (See The Handbook for Goats, The Golden Triangle, and Creating Heaven on Earth.)

Key Terms of Body Chemistry

The mystical elixir for energizing the inner allegorical gods or god-like powers as referred to in many ancient writings. Consequently, the powerful transformational hormones were known variously as ambrosia, amrita, haoma, soma, living waters, and chi in different cultures. (See Directing Life.)

Inner transformational fluid, now known to be adaptive hormones which enliven or quicken the body and mind to manifest one’s intention. (See The Golden Triangle, Power for Change, and Joy and Evolution.)
