CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 1

PART 1 OF CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DISCERNMENT OF REALITY THROUGH PRINCIPLES FROM YOGA PHILOSOPHY AND A COURSE IN MIRACLES WORKBOOK

DAY 1

‘None of the things that my eyes and visual cortex see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place, etc.) means what my personal ego (ahamkar), nor sense impression recorder mind (manas), has told me it does. Vibrations of thought projection that came from my subjective, separative mind distort the fact that everything is neutral and has no meaning just because it is in an apparent materialized and manifested state. Through my neutral, infinite, superconscious (intuitive) and discerning (buddhi) mind, I retract my thought projections and their impressions from the objects around me. This is my first step in allowing things to be as they are, thought and energy that has materialized.’

1. Repeat to yourself the idea above, then look slowly around you and apply this idea very specifically to whatever you see.

For example: ‘This table does not have any meaning apart from my subjective, egoic-separative thought projections and sense impressions I cast onto it.’ ‘This chair does not have any meaning apart from my subjective, egoic-separative thought projections and sense impressions I cast onto it.’ ‘This hand does not have any meaning apart from my subjective, egoic-separative thought projections and sense impressions I cast onto it.’ ‘This foot does not have any meaning apart from my subjective, egoic-separative thought projections and sense impressions I cast onto it.’ ‘This pen does not have any meaning apart from my subjective, egoic-separative thought projections and sense impressions I cast onto it.’

2. Then look away from your immediate area, and apply the idea to a wider range of objects.

3. Notice that these statements are not arranged in any order, and that they are applied to a wide variety of things; this is the purpose of this exercise. Apply it to anything that you see at random, but do not apply it to everything that you see. These exercises should not become a dogmatic ritual, nor a rigid confinement think tank. Only be sure to not deliberately exclude anything you see. As far as applying this lesson is concerned, one thing is like another.

4. Apply this lesson once in the morning and once in the evening. You should do it for a minute or so, unless you are connecting to the exercise and need more time. Apply it with assurance, but ease of effort.
