Christ Realization Yoga Day # 62

DAY 62

Forgiving and releasing is my purpose as the Light and Liberation of the world. Forgiving and releasing in Love is my vocation.

 

My willingness to forgive and release will shine light into the darkness, bringing it out of the hidden shadows. It is through forgiving and releasing that I will truly know through gnosis, the light through which I can see. By forgiving and releasing, I am showing the very fact that I am indeed the Light and Liberation and Love of the world. Through these acts and states of being, the remembrance of my True Self returns to me. For that reason, in forgiving and releasing  I liberate myself, my brothers and sisters in spirit, and the world.

Avidya-illusions with regards to myself and the world are one and the same. Because of this by forgiving and releasing I am really giving a most hallowed gift to myself. My main purpose on this journey is to awaken to who I really am, for I have assaulted and attacked true creation and the Source of all real creation which exists outside of time and space forever. I am starting to acquire knowledge about how the remembering of truth takes place. All assault, mental, physical, and verbal must be substituted by forgiving and releasing, in order for thought vibrations and fluctuations of the essence of life and life force prana to replace all thoughts of terminal death.

Every time I choose to assault, I am drawing on my weakened nature, but when I forgive and release I invoke the strength of the indwelling Christ. I can start to Realize what these functions will enable me to do. By forgiving and releasing I can eradicate all accumulated weakness, strain, and fatigue from my all powerful mind. More importantly, it will dissolve all karma, terror, guilt, and suffering from me. Forgiveness and releasement will allow me to reclaim my true nature that cannot be harmed or destroyed or killed, returning me to full Realization of my inherent God-Mind given power.

I will fervently begin and end today by centering and reciting this mantra affirmation, while also harnessing its potential to realign my mind frequently throughout the day. This, I know will bring me and those who seem to be distant from me, supreme santosha-contentment.

Often and whenever possible, I will close my eyes and say:

“Forgiving and releasing is my purpose as the Light and Liberation of the world. Forgiving and releasing in Love is my vocation. I would carry out my purpose so that I may be supremely content.”

After this, I will commit to a minute or two of pondering my purpose and the santosha-contentment and Liberation it will afford me. Should my attention stray, I will repeat the affirmation and in addition, say:

“I will remember my purpose because I want to be supremely content.”

Finally, I will bring every avidya-illusion to the truth, this day, so I can heal, and be released from all attachment, emotional distress, and grievances of every kind. I will end self-crucifixion.

DESIRE: UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF PRAYER

Desire is the basic life energy that motivates everything we think, do, and feel. Regardless of how you view desire, either as something meant to bring you what you want or as the source of all striving which leads ultimately to suffering, we can’t ignore its power and significance.

Desire energy is what created us as Pure Spirit in the Fullness of Heaven. The Divine is Holy Desire. The desire to extend Love. Real and True Love. If we were begotten by Love, which came from desire, that too must be a part of our make up and inherent nature.

I am of the belief that we must harness desire, no matter what metaphysics or ontology you might subscribe to. I say that because it is such a powerful source. In the view of A Course In Miracles, a non-dualistic teaching said to have come from Jeshua (Jesus) himself, the Collective Son/Daughter of God, the Sonship desired to experience something “special”, something more than God, whether you view the Divine as Father or not, it doesn’t really matter (although I believe The Course ultimately points towards a personal God instead of just some energy or essence). The text of that now widely disseminated teaching, says we attempted to usurp the power of God. We, in one insane moment, as a collective whole thought we could experience something better than Oneness with the Father (the term The Course uses to denote God). As a result, a separate state (seemed) to emerge, thus causing a split, in the One Mind we shared with God, leaving us with not only a collective, but personal ego.

Getting back to desire, it is, I believe, at the root of everything as I mentioned above. For the purpose of this short article, I want to now turn to desire as the driving force behind prayer.

All prayer is desire in motion. Even animals pray, expressing a desire to find food or a place to sleep. They are driven by desire. They can’t escape the drive of desire. Neither can we. Though I am not going to take sides on what we should or shouldn’t pray for in our lives, we need to understand that in some way, every prayer we offer up is an expression of the desire energy that, again, is at the core of who we are. Though desire and love are related, desire can be expressed as fear and all the emotions that stem from fear as well. When we turn to a “Higher Power” to seek guidance, and even when we pray to receive “things”, we are doing it directly out of the Desire Energy that courses through us.

Prayer in my belief, the way I have come to understand it through various mystical teachings, should first be an expression of Love, Devotion, or Communion with our  Source. We need to “return” to our Source of Oneness (though in reality I believe that we never truly separated from the Father, we just appear to be in exile here on earth) when we offer up what is in our hearts. If we just pray for things, what the supplement The Song of Prayer that was channeled and received after the publishing of A Course in Miracles, calls “idols”, we are at a low rung on the “ladder of prayer” that leads us back to a state of communion and union with God. If we seek communion and union first, to express the “Song” that is sung between us and God, all things ‘shall be added unto us’. Jeshua once taught in his sermon on the Mount that if we seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, all things shall be added unto us. The things we really need to get along in this world (not just the things we want) will come in the form of “echoes”, a secondary reply to prayer we offer up.

It is all about alignment. If we are in alignment with the Father (Or Mother, if you prefer), we will be taken care of and all our ‘true desires’, those that are expressions of love, not fear of being either abandoned or rejected, by the Divine Lover, will be heard, and we will receive just what we are asking for whether it is something real or something illusory. If we pray or desire something illusory we are desiring nothing and will receive exactly that – and thereby experience emptiness, that we will long to fill with more “things” or “idols”.  I just wanted to provoke thought by writing this, not cause the reader to feel guilt or remorse. It is my belief, that we should aim high, ‘go for the gold’, seek our treasure which is eternal, and align ourselves with the Divine Presence if we are to be truly happy. This will satisfy our deepest yearning and “true desires”.

Just know that thoughts do manifest in some form. And we do get what we ask for in some way. That is the nature of desire at work. We were created in the image and likeness of God and have the ability to turn our thoughts into form. We need to respect the power of desire, and like I said earlier, harness it, direct it wisely, and for Love. That is the only way we will find lasting peace and joy. Prayer is not just about offering praise and adoration, for God does not have an ego. It is about joining. Returning to the Heart of the Divine Presence. Our Source of endless love and our ‘true sustenance’.  Therefore, use your desire to join, first with the Divine, then with others, out of love, and everything you truly need will be provided for Love does not abandon or deny Itself.

 

 

 

 

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 49

DAY 49

If I but listen, and I be but still, quiet, and in a state of conscious mental rest, I will hear God Presence’s Voice and guidance which speaks to me throughout my entire day, every day, all the time as a manifestation of the One Reality of Cosmic Yoga-Union.

 

Today the static, loud, white noise, and ego chatter will subside, if I but let it and I will hear the One Voice for God the Holy Spirit Intelligent Vibratory Power, the Voice that never stops speaking to me. God’s Voice is an endless stream of Awareness and Love that gives me the gifts of peace, joy, and calmness, if I but listen, if I but stop the monkey mind from distracting me.

 

The Love of God Presence, of Brahman Immortal, of Father-Mother God is in constant contact with me, communicating the ultimate Reality of happiness, joy, ananda-bliss, and peace that is available, always. My ego-ahamkar attempts to the extent of threatening suffering and death that will be the consequences of not listening to it. The ego-mind tries to convince me that it is more important to pay attention to, a voice that in truth makes empty promises and speaks to me of a world governed by separation and confusion. What I seek is Yoga-Union with Divinity and my brothers and sisters, Perfect Awareness of Samadhi-Oneness.

 

In calmness, stillness, and absence from all forms of restlessness, I hear the the Holy Spirit, Divinity’s Voice within. This voice speaks calmly and never forcefully against my individual mind’s will. This other more destructive thought system that I tend to listen to is, as Jeshua (Jesus) describes it “frantic and distraught” and “without reality of any kind”. Today, I commit to calmness which brings true freedom, kaivalya-liberation, and to being completely unshackled in my ability to hear only Love.

 

I will center on today’s mantra prayer four different times for five minutes at a time. My goal is to hear and Realize that God Presence is reminding me of who He/She is and validating my True Self, Christ and Atman Self. I confidently embrace this thought of wholeness and wellness, and affirm that I am uniting with Divinity’s Will. The Divine desires more than anything, that I hear His/Her Voice, for it was given to me to be deciphered and heard.

 

I will go into deep silence and stillness. I will find the zero point of Infinity, completely opening my mind. I release all the haunting ghost images and afflicted thoughts that conceal my real thoughts and hinder my phone line to God Mind. I bypass the insane world, go beyond and transcend my riotous and frantic vritti-fluctuation of thought waves. I further affirm, that this world is not my home. By listening and opening to Divine Mind, I am seeking to reconnect to my True Home in Heavenly Oneness. This place welcomes me always, empowering me with the Current and Life Force of God flowing through me.

 

I will recite today’s mantra frequently, with eyes open when necessary, but closing them whenever possible. I will remember that by turning inward away from the external world perceived by the manas-blind-sense-mind, that I am praying for God Presence to speak directly to me. I tune out the flock of thoughts that crowd my individual mind and try to block me from hearing from the Holy Spirit who is speaking for God Presence in every moment of every day, all the time, outside of time. The voice for God will reveal the Light of God, the Altar of God Essence, and connect me with Christ Mind.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 41

DAY 41

 

The Father-Mother, Divine Guiding Light, Universal Spirit leads me and accompanies me on this journey, this exile, through the wilderness of the world, every step of the way, as I seek the Inner Promised Land of sweetness, milk and honey wholeness.

 

 

My intuitive fiery guide has never left me, even after I attempted to rebel and remove myself from the loving embrace of God Divine, the moment I tried to usurp His/Her power by choosing to be my own God apart and separate from that One Source of Inspiration.

 

 

I have no reason to feel lonely anymore. In truth, I have not been abandoned though I tried to abandon Father-Mother. This discernment and mental discrimination about what is truly real will allow me to triumph over all feelings of isolation, alienation, and abandonment. I have been depressed because of my decision to separate. It is the effect of that terrible choice. With depression comes all anxious, worrisome, helpless, miserable, fearful thoughts and all forms of perceived suffering. It is time to dissolve this accumulated karma, so I don’t have to continue to reap the negative effects of what I have sown.

 

 

In trying to be separate, I have concocted many supposed remedies for what I believe to be the insanity of the world I see. However, one thing I have not done is to call into question the reality of the perceived problem of there being a mental asylum ‘out there’ that I am subject to. There is no need to cure insanity and mental affliction, the effects of egoic-ahamkar separation because the perceived problem is not real. Today’s mental exercise has the ability to end all folly permanently. It is folly, though appearing to be quite concerning.

 

 

Within the nucleus of who I really am is the perfection of Oneness eager to shine forth as Great Rays of Truth out into the world I see through the manas-sense-mind eyes. This perfection and light will be the healing agent of all mental agony, perceived pain, the battle with fear, and any perception of loss. This truth-reality will align my mind with Reality, showing me that the suffering is not real and I cannot be harmed in any way as I am in Samadhi-Oneness, in God Communion and Yoga-Union with the Infinite.

 

 

My perfect wholeness is never taken from me, because its Divine Origin, the Source from which it came, is with me always, in all ways, everywhere I go. Endless Joy is my real experience making suffering impossible. My mind is still and at peace, because no matter where I appear to be, even stuck in the space-time continuum filled with forms and fearful images, Divinity is near and within, wherever I appear to be.

 

 

I must not believe this Truth, because it is hidden in the subconscious depths, behind the pits of despair and beneath the density of tamasic-darkening inertia, the matterward pull and afflicted thoughts which obscure me from seeing through Christed Vision. Today is about treading through the darkness, and shining a light out into the clouds that deter me from seeing and knowing that Divinity goes with me everywhere all of the time.

 

 

Today, I commit to one long practice period, first thing in the morning, when I arise, sitting in contemplation for three to five minutes closing the curtains of my body’s eyes from everything that appears to be external to my mind. First, I will repeat the idea slowly and make no concerted effort to think of anything at all. My goal is to simply turn away from the outside world, and close the door to my inner room, the Upper Room where Higher Awareness resides. I will pierce the veil to my inner tabernacle, penetrating the depths of my True Mind, ignoring thoughts that may try to invade and distract me.

 

 

At times throughout the day, I will repeat the mantra for today. But the true goal, is to go deep within and detach myself from all the troubling thoughts that are attached to the world I see. I will leave the appearances of forms, instead seeking the Ineffable Reality of All that Is, as it is, in the Heavenly Cosmos I never left now.

 

 

I can attain God Communion now and in every Holy Instant. It is natural to do so. The way to Bliss, Joy, and santosha-contentment will show itself, and I will become consciously aware of being One, in Samadhi with God Divine, by surrendering my entire attention to the inner layers of my being.

 

 

Throughout the day, I will chant today’s mantra often, with slow repetitions, closing my eyes whenever possible and I will contemplate what the word vibrations mean and how they feel in my metaphysical energy body. I will allow Kundalini Desire Energy to rise and expand my awareness of the wholeness and sanctity that complete me. It is time that I begin to laugh at all my fearful insinuations, and remember the Father-Mother, Divine Guiding Light, Universal Spirit leads me and accompanies me on this journey, this exile, through the wilderness of the world, every step of the way, as I seek the Inner Promised Land of sweetness, milk and honey wholeness.
