I am curious about some things.
What do people think of Kriya Yoga?
What do they think it is all about?
I am under the impression that people are becoming more involved with the internet, social media and the idiocy of the news continuously stirring them up. There is an mental and emotional addiction going on and has been for some time, people are glued to Smart Phones staring at tiny screens at every free moment.
When will they make the effort to go within?
People are becoming more and more extroverted in the internet generated collective gestalt of the mind and less interested in becoming introverted and going within with spiritual practices.
The mind, the childish mind has become ruler over all in this time. It stands revealed for the horror it is without souls guidance.
This gestalt revels much about the state of the minds of those taking up residence in this Kali Yuga.
It is shocking.
The soul horrified by this existence away from the true life , the true living hides and lets mind run free and the wickedness of simuli and reaction for the sake of more stimuli and reaction in a true perpetual motion machine of craving input as the individual runs from there own self headlong into turmoil rolls on unabated.
The things on facebook are incredible, the way people are mistreating each other and when my wife reads me the stories when I ask why are you upset, I think to myself my God what a hideous trap mankind has created for itself .
Delusion within delusion, Maya within Maya, The matrix within the matrix. Very seldom does it seem there are those who seek tranquility, who seek something more.
I wonder to myself why? Then I think it is because people just do not know any better and coming from a time before wide spread computer use and long before the internet, it is easy to see that those being born now will never know a time of freedom from the gestalt of the web. Freedom from the inane mind.
No they will be slaves of the mind. Slaves of the gestalt of a mental landscapes and unrealistic imaginings of all kinds. To learn to work with the tool that is ones own mind is enough for anyone within the privacy of their own head.
Perhaps this is not so bad? Perhaps this will accelerate the development where the mind one day implodes falling in on it's self from the sheer weight of it all. When this happens Soul will be seen, behind the scenes.
When I was in grade-school I recall looking out the window at the tractor cutting the grass with the box blade behind it. I seemed all so unreal and felt sorrow and pity for the old fellow stuck out in the hot summer sun and sweltering humidity doing this to earn his bread.
Then I was aware of he who is behind the eyes looking out through the lenses of the eyes and this he was tranquil at peace timeless this I identified with as the before the this-ness of now and the mind wondered why all this?
The heart wanted nothing to do with this existence, this mockery of true life, which is something else quite different but the mind can not recall because it has no part of the true life, it is just for when we find ourselves here. The heart on the other hand ah now the heart knows.
The mind and heart in sync, seek salvation from the necessity of incarnation. This becomes a real problem for those who know that this place of taking up human bodies is a stage along the way.
There I was in a young body being seen as a young child and forced to go to this class and the one that follows yet before long this body will not be young, then it will grow old then it will die. Where in lies the purpose to live at all? This is a very temporary state with no permanence whatsoever. Why not long ago I was learning to walk and this body keeps growing and changing. I look down at my hands and tell myself remember these hands as they are now for they will not always be.
Now with so many minds all connected it can be seen that the mind and emotions are not unique to any one person as so many process the same information and expel the same vomit over and over the same dramas of who is being born, who is going to school, who likes this person, who is getting a pet, who is doing this thing or that, who is finished doing and is dying, who is this way or that, all repeated over, and over, on the way to the grave. Tears, Laughter, Joy & Sorrow over and over and over again.
This is a hard Sadhana for all. Without fail you will look within, without fail eventually soul will have to be brave and face the music, come out of hiding and be here now raw and unprotected.
A few nights back my wife and I went out to dinner and two teenage girls sat in the booth behind my wife. They were loud and full of enthusiasm emotionally charged and entertaining. When we left I said to my wife, you know it is a funny thing those two young girls.
She replied what was so funny? I said oh nothing in particular it just struck me funny how young girls at that stage in life.Girls today are no different than when I was their age, it is almost as if there is a programmed mold for that time in life, the topics remain the same even though the specifics have changed. They have no idea just how much that is going to change.
To practice Kriya is to free yourself from the tyranny of the mind and to discover a benediction of tranquility, to live from a position of having a mind but recognizing that it is not everything and to live not from a position of entrapment within the matrix of ones own mind but as the soul that has a mind.
If one reads carefully they will see for me it has always been like this.
Then the question must come, why are you wasting your valuable little time on this earth sitting on a cushion if you already have this?
The answer is a simple one, to bring forth more of that tranquil reality that views from behind the lenses of the eyes into the daily living and there is the reward of greater tranquility and bliss by doing so. The mind is at rest, it is easy and plastic flowing in tranquility ready to do what needs to be done.
To live here without this I think must be a torture for many, and explains much about the activities and behavior of the worlds people.
To live here with this makes ones time valuable and the comprehension of it's fleeting nature one of bittersweet acceptance that one day I will be going home. For now it is not so bad because of actualizing home of the true life here and now,.
Oh this world is so beautiful.......
From this is born the hearts desire to make the possibility of this available to others so they too can realize this actualize this and live this as well, because frankly, yes it is just that good.
If you do not have this already then these practices will help you realize it has always been within and bring the dweller within out. With the realization you then get the actualization and actualize it in your own life and it grows.
