The Romance of Sleep...


Neville:
SLEEP, the life that occupies one-third of our stay on earth, is the natural
door into the subconscious. So it is with sleep that we are now concerned.
The conscious two-thirds of our life on earth is measured by the degree of
attention we give sleep. 

Our understanding of and delight in what sleep
has to bestow will cause us, night after night, to set out for it as though
we were keeping an appointment with a lover.

"In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men,
in slumbering upon the bed; then he openeth the ears of men and sealeth
their instruction", Job 33. It is in sleep and in prayer, a state akin to sleep,
that man enters the subconscious to make his impressions and receive his
instructions. In these states the conscious and subconscious are creatively
joined. The male and female become one flesh. Sleep is the time when
the male or conscious mind turns from the world of sense to seek its lover
or subconscious self. The subconscious - unlike the woman of the world
who marries her husband to change him – has no desire to change the
conscious, waking state, but loves it as it is and faithfully reproduces its
likeness in the outer world of form. The conditions and events of your life
are your children formed from the molds of your subconscious impressions
in sleep. They are made in the image and likeness of your innermost
feeling that they may reveal you to yourself.

Time is an Element of Disorder...

So, it is possible for me to be rid of fear totally, completely, on the instant? If I allow fear to continue, I will create disorder all the time; therefore, one sees that time is an element of disorder, not a means to be ultimately free of fear. So there is no gradual process of getting rid of fear, just as there is no gradual process of getting rid of the poison of nationalism. If you have nationalism and you say that eventually there will be the brotherhood of man, in the interval there are wars, there are hatreds, there is misery, there is all this appalling division between man and man; therefore, time is creating disorder.
So time means moving from what is to “what should be.” I am afraid, but one day I shall be free of fear; therefore, time is necessary to be free of fear—at least, that is what we think. To change from what is to “what should be” involves time. Now, time implies effort in that interval between what is and “what should be.” I don’t like fear, and I am going to make an effort to understand, to analyze, to dissect it, or I am going to discover the cause of it, or I am going to escape totally from it. All this implies effort—and effort is what we are used to. We are always in conflict between what is and “what should be.” The “what I should be” is an idea, and the idea is fictitious, it is not “what I am”, which is the fact; and the “what I am;” can be changed only when I understand the disorder that time creates.

Was Jesus a Yogini?...


From Bill Donahue:

I find myself quite amazed as I receive e mails from Christians telling me how evil Yoga is. How it will open your mind to demons etc.

And yet it was taught by Jesus Christ.

Jesus said you take away the key when you do not enter within yourself (Luke 11:52) That’s Yoga.

Jesus said if your eye be single your body will fill with light, Matt 6:22) That’s Yoga

Jesus said take no thought for your life (Matt 6:25) That’s Yoga

Christians will tell you that Jesus was saying, don’t worry about not having food or money or clothes or a place to live etc.

No, Jesus was saying take no thought in meditation to protect yourself from loss of these things.

Jesus said the first thing you should do for your life is go within yourself where the kingdom is. Matt 6:33 Luke 17:21 That’s Yoga.

And then Jesus said, take my yoke upon you. Matt 11:29

Look at that word yoke and see how it is attached to
Yoga - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoga
1.
Jump to Etymology - The Sanskrit noun yoga translates to (and is cognate with) English "yoke". It is derived from the root yuj "to attach, join, harness, yoke". ...

So Jesus in saying the kingdom is within you, seek within yourself, touch the single eye, separate from thought was saying take my Yoga upon you.

In other words he was saying come within an and allow me to attach myself to you..
