In The Window - 106 - Playlist

In The Window - 106 - Gong Trilogy 2

This weeks show continues Zero's adventures with the pot head pixies started in show #105.

The story so far :-  A pig-farming Egyptologist called Mista T Being is sold a "magick ear ring" by an "antique teapot street vendor & tea label collector" called Fred the Fish. The ear ring is capable of receiving messages from the Planet Gong via a pirate radio station called Radio Gnome Invisible. Being and Fish head off to the hymnalayas of Tibet (sic) where they meet the "great beer yogi" Banana Ananda in a cave. Ananda tends to chant "Banana Nirvana Mañana" a lot and gets drunk on Foster's Australian Lager.  Meanwhile, the mythology's central character, Zero the Hero, is going about his everyday life when he suddenly has a vision in Charing Cross Road. He is compelled to seek heroes and starts worshipping the Cock Pot Pixie, one of a number of Pot Head Pixies from the Planet Gong. These pixies are green with propellers on their heads, and they fly around in teapots.  Zero is soon distracted by a cat which he offers his fish and chips to. The cat is actually the Good Witch Yoni, who gives Zero a potion.  Zero falling to sleep under the influences of the potion and finding himself floating through space. After accidentally scaring a space pilot called Captain Capricorn, Zero locates the Planet Gong, and spends some time with a prostitute who introduces him to the moon goddess Selene.

Gong on TV
When this Gong concert was broadcast on Yorkshire TV the moment it started a huge electrical storm hit the county and the picture was repeatedly interrupted by blasts of white noise - when the show finished the storm just dissipated - just saying - ?

the below is from
get inFormation 
direct from source! 
sometimes I am one with everything that exists, including you
at these times 
i know you inside out 
i know everything inside out 
i also know nothing

This is a science anybody can practice, we call it telepot contact
tele = telepathic 
pot = receiver / receptacle 
contact = sensation of oneness with all the others in the whole world doing the same thing
when does it all happen? 21:00 GMT (9pm)
join your brothers and sisters on the telepathic airways…
what else do we contact?
this is the mystery of gong. nobody stops you from knowing but yourself.
the use of drugs to obtain similar states of mind is not recommended

The meditation method given to the Dartington Solar Quest is intended to help people of all ages to reach their higher selves while remaining physically aware. It is an exercise that helps consciousness to extend into areas that are normally only met with during sleep and to retain memory of what is experienced. It is a process that rebuilds the rainbow bridge between the physical and the spiritual levels, making a whole of that which has been divided by humankind for too long a time.

The meditation should be done in an airy room using a focal point such as a lighted candle if desired. A comfortable, upright sitting position should be chosen, either on the floor or in a chair, preferably a position in which you support you back yourself. A few minutes should then be given to ensure physical relaxation and a quietened mind.

Students should always start each meditation in prayer or invocation, tuning in to the highest in order that those concerned will guard and guide them during this period. Following the prayer, students should focus their attention upon their breathing. when the breathing has deepened, two brief pauses should be introduced into the rhythm, one at the end of each intake of breath, and the other at the end of each exhalation. Do not strain, try to relax.

On each intake of breath, students should visualize the drawing up of energy through the feet from the earth below. On the exhaling of breath, students should visualize the drawing down of the higher force and the merging of the two with expectancy and awareness.
There are many other techniques and variations of meditation to explore - the one above is offered as a hopefully clear starting point.
