And so, here is an even easier homework. Your eyes are probably open most of the time during the day. And so, look at whatever is in your view — and do this as many times in a day as you happen to think of it —and in your mind, say, "I see you."

"I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you."

You are looking at various things all the time. You are not faking yourself into anything by saying this. You are not ... [read more]

I taught a workshop recently and a woman asked a very smart question. She said, “You teach Freedom Yoga, and yet you say to listen for instructions. Where's the freedom in that?" I thought, "Wow, awesome question! Awesome."

But, the answer… Do you know the answer? The answer is awesome.

Remember, if you are wondering about anything, then you are not as clear as you could be. Therefore, do not make up your own mind about what to do or not do based on your current level of not being as clear as you could be. Instead, learn to mentally Google whatever you need to know. What you will discover is that your mind is connected to the Infinity of Mind. Then you'll get it. "Oh, wow, that's what Yoga IS!" It is the realization that your mind and Big Mind are one and the same.

At first, you will talk about it as though you are "connected," but then you will realize, "Wow, there's not enough of me — all by myself — to actually ... [more]

Question: How do you explain to somebody who thinks they can't meditate how to meditate?

Erich: How do you explain to somebody who thinks they CAN meditate how to meditate? You know what I mean?

When I sit down to meditate I'm not really "doing" anything. Anything that you "do" is just sort of getting you in the lane. The real meditation is: YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING! And then you BE ATTENTIVE to what is happening at that point. And then you realize, "Oh, wow, The All is doing ME!" -- more --

I think we are pretty clear on the theory, right? In simple words: ONLINE ALL THE TIME. And understanding that little statement as a STATEMENT.

YOU ARE ONLINE ALL THE TIME is the simple idea. The practices help you get hip to that fact. "Oh, I AM Online! Oh, I am Online. I am Online!" So, instead of walking around feeling stranded, isolated, vulnerable, realize you are connected, already. The problem is isolation. The solution is joining.... (more)

Now, somewhere around then I bought one of these little tape recorders. This one records as mp3's, which is really convenient. I would suggest, go out and buy one. Carry it around with you. You will need it when you least suspect it. I'll go on a walk at night, or I'll go for a drive, and I'll think, "Eh, I don't need to bring it. I'm not going to get any good insights tonight," as though you know, you know? ...

The main practice is the holy instant, what I call the Conscious Pause. Whenever it occurs to you, pause for a moment and put a comma in your commentary. This is like hitting the mute button on your TV during the commercials. The TV is still going. Life is still going. But, you press the mute button and then hang out in the "not thinking place" for half a second or two or three. The idea is to relax, and listen for the download, to feel the truth of who and what you are so as to then give expression to it. You are not responsible for the download, but you can let it flow through you. You can let it in and you can let it out.

The second main practice is ...

I have talked about this before, but I want to say it again. I wear this locket around my neck. It is a little painting of Milarepa. I don't know much about Milarepa, except that he was a Tibetan yogi. But, during my first trip to India I saw a painting of him. He was sitting in a Shankara-type cross-legged pose and he had his hand cupped by his ear as though he were listening for something. I haven't studied his story or teachings very much. That was sufficient.

The teaching is: Listen. Be mindful. Be attentive. Think less, listen more. Listen to The Infinite. That is the essence of Yoga. Listen to The Infinite and then live your life with the new perspective you will find yourself having...

Sava" means corpse. Savasana is the Corpse Pose. Just that is amusing. Because, yes, it looks like that. But, hey, when you experience the Corpse Pose, you ain't dead. You are nowhere near dead! In fact, you start having a clearer experience of Life, live. And that is the point...

Relax and Be Attentive – venice class – Jun 5, 2014 th

NEW - Freeform section included

The interesting thing remember is that it is effortless to be attentive. You do not have to do anything to be attentive. And you are always doing something. You are either "being attentive" or you are "thinking." And so, when you "be attentive" — and it is effortless to be attentive, and you are therefore thinking less — then "the download" from the so-called Internet of Infinite of Mind will begin to register with you. You will find yourself being a little clearer about what to do or not do. Therefore, THINK LESS and LISTEN MORE because when you do new Knowing flows in.

The Already-Existing Fact – venice class – Jun 3, 2014 tu

And so, trust your heart. Trust your conscience. Relax as much as you can whenever it occurs to you. And when you are confused about something, instead of freaking out, chill more. Relax more. Then desire to know whatever you need to know. Bingo! When you do that, new Knowing flows in. Or, somehow, circumstances will reconfigure and you will know what to do. It works like this because there is an already-existing Unity.

Yoga means "to yoke." It also means Union. When you yoke — by pausing, relaxing, and desiring to know whatever you need to know — you will experience your unity with Infinity, and the wisdom of the Universe will become your common sense.
