Meditation

Yoga. Derived from the Sanskrit word for “yoke” or “join together.” Essentially, it means union. It is the science of uniting the individual soul with the cosmic spirit through physical disciplines (postures) and mental disciplines (meditation). Patanjali offers the best definition: “Yoga is the cessation of mind.”

The universal teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda offer a science of spiritual exploration — one that enables us to create for ourselves spiritually harmonious lives, and to contribute to a more compassionate and peaceful world.

Consider the spiritual confusion that characterizes our modern era....It is interesting, because even today, in spite of all the scientific and technological advancements, people in general still do not know what life is really all about. And what is amazing is that they don't even ask. Most people are so caught up in the external procedures and processes of life that it doesn't occur to them to entertain such questions as "Why am I here?" And most of those who do inquire arrive at a wrong answer....

That is why the world is in such a mess today: People do not know what the purpose of life is. As a result, their ambitions and behavior are guided by values that are out of harmony with truth, and are therefore destructive to personal and planetary well-being. The world will not change unless this situation is turned around.

Essentially, what we are seeking is God, whether or not we use that name....What we crave at the deepest level of our being cannot be found in anything the world can give us.

Our true essence is the soul: made in the image of God – immortal, indestructible, ever-blissful Infinite Consciousness. As Paramahansa Yogananda often said, if you have a lump of gold and you cover it with mud are you going to claim it's no longer gold? Of course not; it is still gold...."We are like gold in the mud," [he said]: "when the mud of ignorance is cleansed away, the shining gold of the soul, made in God's image, is seen within."

That is the purpose of religion – indeed, the purpose of life – to wash off the mud of ignorance, so we can know who we really are. And it is the answer to the problems we face in the world. Can you imagine what this world would be like if it were filled with people who had found within themselves the great love and joy and peace and wisdom of God?
OMG....I love this guy.

ROFLMAO!

You are sadly misinformed there..............

Besides: if I were Mexico; I would be extremely concerned once about 7-12 million people plus their Anchor Babies are repatriated.

The above people have tasted respect and freedom here and they will probably demand reform from the elite.

If the elite living SOB fails to deliver; can someone say a revolution?

MAYYYBE.

So step out of the way and let Americans defend what is theirs.

White Americans? White? You do realize that the US is an extremely diverse nation? All Americans are affected, not just the whites.

Why is it that those who scream "racist" the loudist seem to be the only ones who actually are racists?

Because truth is stranger than fiction.

One can tell that by the fact that some have to post so many pics to make up for the fact that one is not able to debate something of substance. Thank you for showing us all that fact.
Sorry for the late response but I took a looooong and needed vacation, after a hard year of work

what I mean about ignorance is that, you compare higher states of conciousness to altered states of consciousness, which aren't the same thing.

Those higher states of conciousness come only after hard work and discipline of exploring your inner self on meditation and developing the qualities to see through illusion.

Yes, that illusion that divides, people, creating countries, making us prisioners of the state, slaves of patriotism, poisoning our minds with fear of the unkown and evil thoughts, making us puppets of the governments, which in most cases are controlled by evil selfish people.

Love is the light that will dissolve all barriers among families, people and nations.

let the borders be destroyed, erased, reduced to ashes, and with them fear, ignorance, divisions and evil!

ॐ शिव महदेव
Om Shiva Mahadeva



Shiva is the destroyer of the world, following Brahma the creator and Vishnu the preserver, after which Brahma again creates the world and so on. Shiva is responsible for change both in the form of death and destruction and in the positive sense of the shedding of old habits. In Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram or Truth, Goodness and Beauty, Shiva also represents the most essential goodness.
Shiva is the god of the yogis, self-controlled and celibate.

ॐ शिव महदेव

ॐ शिव महदेव

ॐ शिव महदेव

Hocus Pocus, while you're in your trance contacting your inner element say "Hi" for me buddy, and don't forget I always say "Hi" to a neighbor with a friendly finger ... by the way could you cover that bean-head with a rug of some kind - the reflection just trashes the Sun and buggers up my monitor horribly. Just a humble suggestion from a wretched sinner such as myself.
Hey Zanman, why should you be unworthy? unworthy of what? aren't all of us brothers? is there a difference between us to God? hell no!! for him christ and hitler are both his sons.

So, let me send you a huuuuuuge Hi, with all my heart, soul and strenght.

we are all sinners, but we all have a soul inside as well, and with her light we can destroy all the evil inside us.

Unfortunately I don't have pictures of lauren nelson, I don't even know her hehehe

But I have very cool pictures that maybe you would like to see

btw does someone want to continue listening the story of an immigrant or not?
