In Yoga there is a Sanskrit word, Dwija, which means twice born. Every human is already once born, but how do you do it twice? Every human comes out of the amniotic fluid of the mother’s womb. When Christ said you cannot see the Kingdom of God unless you are born again of water and spirit, He was being very specific, if you open your mind. The water He referred to was not baptism as most believe. The human body is made up of mostly water already. To be born again of Spirit, Christ was talking about putting in some work through meditation and activating your pineal gland to find that transcendental platform of who you really are. The transcendental platform resides beyond the mode of material existence. Transcendental means spiritual or nonphysical realm. Christ was teaching us that we have to work at finding the Kingdom, but most don’t want to put in the work. Christ said that the Kingdom of God is within, so there is more work to be done beyond just believing. I think it is fantastic that if we are willing to put in this work we can experience the results of our actions. All Yoga Masters will agree that when you find Self or God Realization through meditation you are transformed or born again to a new person and you will never be the same again. This is exactly what Christ was talking about, but you can’t teach this in the pulpits of America cause then you will have to open up books from the East and rewrite denominational philosophies. We just blew it with our belief systems in this country and we need to start all over again.
In this country we have a plethora of sports teams on every level. Sports egotism begins even at the earliest ages. In the home kids are taught to bring out the ego at the earliest age and be the best. This is then brought to the educational systems and this egotism has spread throughout the whole fabric of society. This attitude contains no Kingdom of God. It is one big huge weapon of mass distraction. It takes a lot of work to build a sports team and become an athlete or the best in your profession. How much work does it take to find the Kingdom of God? Why can’t we have the best meditator contest? My meditation is better than yours contest. I am able to control my monkey mind better than you, ha, ha. This kind of practice is going to provide the most value to a person’s life.
The great commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind. You tell me please, does this simply mean belief? Ask any Yoga Master what this means and they will tell you that you can’t do this unless you meditate. These words are very specific too, are they not? Sincerely seeking with all you have got is hard work through meditation. Most use these adjectives to work toward worldly desires and not the treasure or Kingdom that satisfies forever, transforms and creates a new born again person. So you have a choice, stay in the mode of material nature or reach the Kingdom and a new transcendental platform through meditation. Choose wisely.
