Lakulisha, a prominent guru c. 200 B.C
Sexual energy is focused in the lower chakras - the red and golden lions of the loins. (see what I just did there? Synchromystic mirroring. Snap!) Meanwhile, the “traditional” place of meditation is devoted to the higher chakras - the blue and violet realms of enlightenment and non-duality. Seems to me that the lower chakras are the “engine room” of the Kundalini Express, the power that makes the whole bloody thing work. It’s interesting that the heart chakra lies midway between these two polarities - the green mediator?
Dorothy and her friends conducted a crowning ceremony for the Cowardly Lion in the Emerald City, right before they gained access to see the Wizard. Perhaps that scene represents the Scarecrow (brain) and Tin Man (heart) recognizing the power of the Lion - the “fount” or “source” of Kundalini energy. I’ll let you know how it goes. I suppose the next step is meeting the Wizard.
