Temple on The Mountain
This position appears to be much the same posture as the traditional Tadasana or Mountain Posture.
Feet firmly rooted in the Earth. Hands above firmly rooted in Heaven.
Legs are strong and firm, but at the same time relaxed.
The hips are parallel and the torso rises up out of the hips, extending the spine.
The spine is a string of pearls hung loosely from above.
The head is nor forward nor back nor side to side.

Now tilt the head to the left.
Feel the weight of the blood, of the protoplasm within the skull,
lay upon the left side of the head.
Now tilt the head to the right.
Feel the weight of the blood, of the protoplasm within the skull,
lay upon the right side of the head.
Go from side to side several times,
each time feeling the weight shift fro side to side if the inner head area.
And now position the head again nor forward nor back nor side to side.
Feel the space between the two weights within the skull,
between weight of the right side and the weight of the left side.
sit between the two weights.
in the center.

This is what I am referring to when I say,
'The mind is nor forward nor back nor side to side.'

The final alignment in the Temple on the Mountain is;
the Heart is open and is suspended from a golden thread
held from above by the Breath of an Angle.
