Do you actually think in this universe of trillions of other universes, that this earth is the only realm of reality? That the creator is so dull that we have only this earth as your only home? Not according to yoga. What? Are you insane, no peace on earth ever! One may say. But read on if you have 4 and a half minutes, in your world of fast paced living, and all will be explained to you. The 3 modes of material existence, according to yoga, are ignorance, passion and goodness. In a typical day we all move in and out of these 3 realms. If you reside in ignorance for a short time or a lifetime than you, as an example, don’t want to get off the couch, or you just want to, “veg out”, or it is My Way or the Highway and you blow up, or shoot people, or you bomb countries. By the way, these modes reside in our own minds and it is simply the way things are. Can we change them? Read on, oh interested one. Remember, Yoga deals with the mind and you can escape this planet. The second mode, passion, is where most reside. Running too and fro, rushing around and putting wasted energy into feel good stuff or happy go lucky accumulation or just working your job or just being a kid at heart. No real goals, but stuff you have to do, and actions you enjoy. The third mode is where we all want or wish to be, because our spirit cries out, and the mind says when am I going to do better. When will I stop doing what I am doing and start doing and thinking the way I should? We all want this “goodness” but, because we all reside in the 3 modes of material existence it is difficult to stay in this realm. There are other worlds in other dimensions besides this one and since we all are eternal then you will get to another one eventually if , according to yoga, you put in the work. When you deal with eternity should you take your time? What is so great about this world and how did you wind up here? You come into this world and someone wipes your butt and before you leave there is a good probability the same thing will happen. When you die you will either be ashes or poop from an animal or organisms butt that has eaten you. Yoga teaches that your goal is to leave this world and reside in another world higher than this one and if your spiritual growth is high enough then maybe you will never return to this world again. How do you do this? First of all, grow up! You have to change yourself first before you can make changes to those around you. Begin by changing that “spoiled brat”, you call your brain and think differently. In the spiritual realm or, your True Self, everyone loves each other and they practice selfless service. Do you? Why are things upside down here? Because of the 3 modes of material existence of which your mind is a part of and can’t escape unless you are willing to put in the “yoga”, work. What work? The same work that all the saints, masters, sages, avatars and saviors have been telling you to do throughout humanities existence! In recent times, Swami Nirmalananda said, “our main duty is to go beyond thoughts”. Siri Singh Sahib, said, “Keep up”! “There is no liberation without labor”. Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within”. Do you get it? It is up to you and you alone to transform your thoughts and work hard through the meditation of yoga to rise above these 3 modes of material existence so you don’t have to come back here after you die. Most will be content with the status quo and be like everyone else. Just eat, drink and be as merry as you can. I for one know the end of the movie if I rest in the status quo. If I am content with the status quo then nothing changes. Why not take the other path? The yoga path few have traveled but the work is harder and different. When Jesus said , “strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. He is talking about the straight spine of meditation, according to Yogananda. Have you read Yogananda’s books? Have you read the book, “The Yoga of Jesus” by Yogananda? It is an eye opener to hard work. This is your escape plan from this earth to another plane of existence. Are you listening to the silence beyond your thoughts which is your True Self? Religion separates but the spirit unites. This is yoga and it is for everyone on this earth, isn’t it? Yoga doesn’t separate. Yoga teaches, we are all one. The status quo can’t control the spoiled brat brain, can you? Will you? When? Yoga or the spoiled brat status quo brain? Choose wisely.
