Authentic Yoga Meditation the Easy Way

Yoga Nidra 

I am with my parents. I am seeing and interacting with them as they really are, not as ‘divine individuals’, but as beings who, like all of us, came here from a different plane. But in their case, they have left their physical bodies and are now denizens of this wonderful place, and able get around without the cumbersome and deceptive cloak of a physical body. And I liked them very much. There was no tension and I was able to relate well with them and enjoy being with them.

In this life I was not able to connect with my parents; we were not close. I didn’t know what made them tick, nor they me. But now I have seen them as they really are as beings.

In the plane we came here from—let’s just call it an astral plane—we were not so heavily cloaked; we were happy, at ease, peaceful, kind, and filled with a quiet joy. Here, our cloaking is massive, and relentlessly requires our attention and care. It yells and screams at us with pains and discomforts, demands food, and gets involved with all kinds of things, especially other people equally cloaked—what we are relating to is only a fabricated cloak…we don’t have a clue who’s behind it. One cloak relating to another cloak, we are all invisible.

Most people hearing about ‘liberation’ as not having to come back here and become hidden behind these cloaking devices again, not only do not want to hear it, but they will actually state that they do want to come back. If you tell most people that you are seeking liberation, they will likely find you wanting in sanity, or at the very least, they will tell you that you need to ‘think more positively’, not realizing that this is exactly what you’re doing!

This cloaking device we wear, and that we think of as ourselves, is nothing more than a pile-up of misinformation, more of a robot than a being—and you’re not even the one at the controls! (If you think you are, you are fooling yourself.) Returning to the astral world at death, this mechanical device is gone, and one is able to be a being that is much more Real than what is possible here in this world—maybe one person in five-hundred years manages it.

So call me “Negative” if you like, but what I really am is neither negative nor positive. I am just the one that I am, and not the least bit different that you. Personally, I would rather live life as a being on that lovely astral plane and see if they have any classes in Real Yoga over there (one doesn’t like to make too many assumptions about what might be next!).

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Vs 16-21

Enlightenment, Self-realization, God-realization, Christ Consciousness… 

16  
There is no coming to be of the non-existent. What is not non-existent is Real. These statements are understood by Knowers of Truth*.

The subject is sat — ‘the real; truth, existence; that which is without change, that which really is’.

“There is no coming to be of the non-existent. What is not non-existent is Real.”

• What is not real goes through changes. What is Real never changes.

• The unReal never is. The Real eternally remains.

• With the unReal nothing remains the same. The Real is ever-existent without modification.

• The changeless is what exists and is Real. Anything that can change does not really exist so it is not Real.

* The Knowers of Truth are the enlightened ones, the sages, those who have reached this understanding through direct experience.

17
Understand that that by which this universe is pervaded is imperishable, and that no one can destroy that which cannot be destroyed but endures always.

‘The Real’ is given more descriptors — it is ‘all-pervasive’, unlimited, everywhere always.

Self-reference:  What you really are has no limitations, is not located anywhere, is everywhere. You seem to have limitations and to be located somewhere, due to identification with the unReal.

18
These bodies, inhabited by the eternal, indestructible, immeasurable embodied one, come to an end. So fight, Descendant of Bharata!

“immeasurable” — all-pervasive and unlimited.

‘Descendant of Bharata’:  Krishna uses this epitaph of Arjuna’s to remind him that, having come into being from an original state of ‘continuous knowing’ (Bharata), he already knows all this and just needs to realize it.

Self-reference: God is reminding you that you already know this for the same reason.

19
He who imagines the embodied one to be a slayer, and he who imagines that the embodied one can be slain, does not understand. The embodied one does not slay, nor is it slain.

Krishna subtly weaves in the reality of ‘non-doership’ here:  What Arjuna truly is does nothing, so his arguments in previous verses have no foundation.

Self-reference:  What you really are is invulnerable, and what you really are never harms anyone. This is the basis of the first yama, ahimsa (harmlessness). Hurting others doesn’t work and can only cause your own downfall, because it is not possible for the Real You.

20 – 21
The embodied one is never born, nor does it die at any time. The embodied one is not a being, does not become a being, and will never become a being at any time in the future. It is birthless, eternal, and ever-existent. It is not slain when the body is slain.

How can anyone who knows this embodied one to be indestructible, eternal, birthless, and imperishable, kill or be killed?

Well obviously, this simply cannot happen. We are convinced!

Our bodies come into being, live for a while, and then they die, so by definition they are not Real, nor is anything in the world Real. If you don’t believe this, just try finding something that NEVER changes.

Self reference: The above verses suggest that what is Real is something that is constant. In other words, it is something that is always present no matter what is happening, what is going on around you, in the outside world or within. Think this over and look for this constant. Ask yourself what it is. There is an answer. It is below. Don’t look yet. Think it over and see if you can come up with the answer first, then take a peek.

_____________________________________

Opposites Neutralized

In the unReal, the ‘relative’, everything is relative to and dependent upon everything else. The Real, the ‘absolute’, is unchanging, never-ending, true and constant existence. The relative (non-existent) describes what we are ‘being’, i.e., physical beings in a world of change. The absolute (existent) describes us as we really are.

Realizing this to be true, we can understand now, why polarizing opposites ultimately become neutralized, and why this is inevitable: they are unReal and we seek the Real. During the process, there is a state we can achieve in which opposites do not arise, where heat and cold, pleasure and pain, attraction and aversion, etc., do not arise and therefore do not exert any influence on us. This state is called Yoga (Union).

Namaste — I bow to the Divine One that you really are,

Self-reference:  That which is constant no matter what, is YOU.

Kripalu Talks About His Guru, Lakulisha

In the woods and naturally beautiful places of ancient India, yoga has been studied and practiced in great depth. Due to this deep study and practice of yoga, the great yogis, such as Lakulish, have been able to keep their bodies in their original condition. This kind of body is called the Divine Body. It is unchanging and immortal.

Kripalu9
Swami Kripalu

Scritpures of India say that one is a complete yogi ony after going beyond birth and death. The yogis have always been interested in prolonging the time between birth and death, not because they are attracted to the body, but because they wish to fulfill their desire to know the soul to the highest possible extent. Death and disease interfere with the fulfillment of that desire.

Unless the body can stay long enough, it takes many lifetimes for the yogi to know the deep secrets of the soul and find the highest Truth. A yogi’s life energy must become and remain steady in order for him to become established in samadhi. When this life energy then reaches into the top chakra (thousand petaled chakra), at such time the yogi enters samadhi and is very much like a child in the mother’s womb. This is the type of thinking and searching for Truth that intensely prevailed in ancient India.

There are many who ask, “If there are so many yogis in India, why it it so poor?”

It should not be forgotten that at one time India was one of the most prosperous countries inthe world. However, the rise and fall in fortunes that occurs in worldly life happens equally to all countries. So India is now going through one of these stages and is currently in decline. It is possible that America might experience the kind of prosperity which was experienced earlier in India. Spiritual science can best properly spread in a prosperous country.

I have an American disciple, Yogeshwar Muni. He plans now to build a large temple named, Bhagavan Brahmeshvara (God, Master of Creation, Shiva), and he hopes to establish the statue of Lord Lakulisha in that temple. In this scientific country it is very necessary for this statue to be available so that secrets of it can be found. Then someone from America will become a true complete yogi and will look at that statue with tears rolling from their eyes, saying, “This is Truth”.

This is the country of science, and I have complete faith that this will definitely happen here. What is America? India is one room in the house, America is another room in the same house. The whole world is one big residence, one big family.
