Experiment With It! – venice class – Nov 25, 2014 tu

And so, experiment with it. That's what I did and do. Whenever you need to know something, instead of making up your own mind about it, quickly Google the Internet of Infinite Mind and LISTEN for the answer. That's how you yoke.

Now, the more you yoke, and yoke, and yoke, and yoke, and yoke, and yoke — by LISTENING like that — and you do it, and you do it, the more you will realize, "Oh wow, I don't actually have to yoke. I'm already yoked! I am Online. My mind IS connected to Big Mind. That's just the way it is."

This is when the word, Yoga, morphs into the other meaning, which is Union. It doesn't just mean yoke. The implied meaning is Union, or Unity. That is important to know. But, you have to "yoke" before you will experience the already-existing Unity. At that point, a better word than "Unity" is Singularity or Oneness.

"Unity" still sounds like separate things, joining together to form a Union. And yes, it may feel like that, at first, as though your small mind were joining with God's Big Mind. Let it feel like that. But, the more you do it, the more you will begin to sense, "Oh wow, really, there is a Singularity. Really, there is a Oneness. Really, this is what has been going on the whole time. And therefore, all I have to do is think less and LISTEN more, and then dare to do as my heart and conscience are guiding me to do."

Remind yourself to LISTEN more. And just do it all the time. All the time! There is nothing better to be doing.

In the asana practice, practice doing that, also. LISTEN for what to do. Make up your mind to no longer make up your own mind, and, instead, let yourself be guided. See, I love that. Because that way my mind feels satisfied. "Yes, I figured that out. I now know enough to know that I don't know enough to make smart decisions, and so I won't." That's smart. If you were stuck with that, it would be a bummer. But, right at that point, you start to realize, "Oh wow, I really am connected to the Internet of Infinite Mind, the Intelligence of Manifest Creation, and I CAN KNOW MORE if I simply listen more."

This is why so many spiritual texts talk about "getting quiet in your mind." In those moments when you are quiet in your mind, you will not be energizing your current level of ignorance. The download will then flow in, and you will be blessed with Insight.

Yay. That's cool. And so, experiment with it.

The interesting point to understand is this: Your mind is ALREADY CONNECTED to the Internet of Infinite Mind. Therefore, it is not up to you to figure things out. It's up to you to get quiet in there and LISTEN. The moment you get quiet, and you can even do that right now as you are reading this, and you thereby stop energizing your current level of foggy ignorance, is the exact moment when the download from the Internet of Infinite Mind can flow in and more clearly connect with you. In little glimmers, at first, you will find yourself Knowing what to do or not do. The idea is trust your heart. Trust your conscience. Start doing what feels right to you — in the meditations, in the poses, and in your life.

Remember, it makes sense to do this because, "You only exist because The All is being Itself as you." That is one of my favorite lines. I've said that 10 million times this year. You are only who you are because The All is appearing as you. Therefore, when you trust yourself, you are not just trusting into your conditioning. You are not just trusting into your habits. You are trusting into The All, which is appearing as you.

That is why you don't have to figure anything out. Figure out enough to get yourself to be quiet, to put a comma in your commentary every once in a while, to exhale and relax, and wonder, "What is the truth here, really?" And then don't make up an answer. Exhale and relax again. And exhale and relax again. And exhale and relax again. Next thing you know, you will find yourself moved to be talking about "this," or driving home "this" way, and you will find yourself living your life with Online Knowing. Yay! Then you begin to get it. That's what Yoga is.

The reason I talk about all of this is because Yoga is about the mindset you are coming from. It is not just bending yourself inside-out. It's about being consciously online with the Internet of Infinite Mind, and Googling answers whenever you need to know something, and doing it so much you realize, "Wow, I don't have to "get" Online. I'm Online. It's built-in. It is impossible to get off-line." If you are conscious, and you are, then YOU ARE CONNECTED, and you have always been connected. You and I have always been in the middle of The Ultimate. We are in the middle of The Ultimate even now. Whereas, if in the back of your mind you are thinking we are in a temporary world on the way to a more "real" existence, it will wreck your health and distort your experience.


So, let's meditate. And then 3) bend over, then 4) Freeform-it, and then 5) meditate again.

And in case you haven't been here before, Chapter One is what just happened. Talking. Chapter Two is we meditate for a few minutes. I usually talk for part of it, and then I be quiet for part of it. Chapter Three is a Guided Asana Chapter. Chapter Four, I put on the music and we do Freeform together, where you practice channeling your practice. And then Chapter Five, we will meditate again at the end for a short minute or two.

Thank you for coming today. Thank you for coming all year. Enjoy the web page. Enjoy the Holy Instant.

Meditate on the Infinite – venice class – Nov 11, 2014 tu

Years ago when I was first getting into Yoga, I read somebody's advice about how to meditate. His advice was, "Meditate on the Infinite."

I remember reading that, but, man, that did not make sense to me, except sort of, but not really. Not enough to where I really knew what was up. But now I wholeheartedly endorse that advice. Yes, "Meditate on The Infinite." Try to figure out what it means... by meditating, by doing the Conscious Pause while you are meditating, over and over and over and over and over. Slide into the feeling of Infinity. Try to experience what that feels like. Try to experience why that was the guy's advice. It is very good advice, even if, at first, it seems elusive and amorphous. It will seem elusive until you start to get it. Then you will realize, "Oh wow, I can't get out of The Infinite!" Even, "Oh wow, I am The Infinite being aware of it's own infinity from right here where I am."

Infinite means "not finite," remember. A form is finite. A sound is finite. Whereas, The Infinite is the Conscious Formless Context IN WHICH every finite form is happening, sort of like the weather is happening in the not-finite context of the sky. The clouds, the forms and formations of clouds, are happening in the not-finite formless sky. The not-finite formless sky is the sky of Mind, Consciousness. And so, when you meditate on The Infinite, you are experiencing yourself as the sky, as the conscious changeless space in which it is all happening, rather than the formations of weather, only. You will experience yourself merging, so to speak, with the infinity of Consciousness. Do this as homework, if you are so guided. Enjoy what happens :))))

Stop Energizing Your Usual Mindset – venice class – Oct 30, 2014 th

Again, the insight is that God is Love. There are all sorts of good reasons to argue with that, but there are also all sorts of good reasons to start believing in it. At least be intrigued by the idea.

Remember, the way to have a clearer experience of Reality involves temporarily suspending your usual mindset. Simply stop energizing your usual perspective by being aware of what you are thinking about, what you are saying to yourself, and what you are decreeing. "I'm almost 70. That's the age my father was when he died. I will probably die of what he died of. It's genetic, you know." You say things like that to yourself, and it seems smart. You think you are reporting the news accurately. Yes, yes, yes... but your deepest genetics are not human-based. They are G-O-D-based. Therefore, be aware of what you are saying to yourself, put it in pause-mode, and then exhale and relax and wonder to yourself, "What is the truth here, really?"

If God is All, then God is being what you are. Therefore, be aware of what you are saying to yourself that is not in alignment with this new fundamental understanding. Temporarily put what you think is true in pause-mode, and then direct your attention toward having a clearer experience of whatever the truth happens to be. Go within. Feel the truth of what you are. YOU are your own closest contact point with the feeling-tone of Infinity. Then, right in that New Now Moment be attentive for intuitive knowings such as, "Yes, my real DNA is G-O-D. Maybe!" that just might surface in your mind. Entertain them a little longer than normal. In this way you will become more open to the idea, rather than always being so convinced it is not that.

Your real DNA is G-O-D. And God is Love, as it turns out, and therefore so are you. Therefore, the moment you STOP ENERGIZING YOUR USUAL MINDSET is the exact moment when you will find yourself feeling loved by the God-Love that is being you. It's effortless. There is nothing you have to do to become this way. Simply stop doing what you are habitually doing. You will then become a more humane human, effortlessly.

Nip It in the Bud – venice class – Oct 28, 2014 tu

This has been on my mind a lot. And I have been talking about it a lot in here. But I want to keep rubbing it in, because it seems true. Anything other than this just doesn't seem as true as it used to seem. The simple sentence I would like you to remember, and argue with, debate about, wonder about, sense into the truth or falsity of, is, "Your real DNA — what you are really made out of — is G-O-D."

Your real DNA is G-O-D.

The older you get, the more you are likely to find yourself thinking things like, "I will probably die of what my father died of." Or, "I will probably die of what my grandmother died of. It's genetic, you know." And you are likely to have good, smart reasons that justify why you are suffering from whatever you are suffering from. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Yes. Yes. But, more than that is, wow, "Your REAL DNA — the thing that you are really susceptible to — is G-O-D," whatever that means. Therefore, inquire, "What does G-O-D mean?"

The insight is that God means Supreme Being, the Being of all, and that therefore your real DNA is G-O-D, and that because God is Love therefore so are you.

I used to hear, "God is Love," and I would think, "Well, so what? Yay. But what does that have to do with me?" You know, as though God were some other entity that you will meet at some future moment after death. But, God is Supreme Being being everything that is being — right now, already, and only. And since God is Love — if — then wow, that is the truest thing about you, really, whether you are experiencing it yet or not.

Be intrigued by the concept and then immerse yourself in your actual Now experience and wonder, "What is the truth here, really? Really? Really? Really? Really? Really? Yes, genetics, I know, my father, my grandmother, yeah I know..."

But, wow, your real DNA is G-O-D. And G-O-D is Love. The more you feel the truth of this, the more you get healed — is the insight, is the hope, is the worthy quest.

Understand that if you are not pushing into new understandings about life and what's going on, then you will be stuck with your current level of ignorance. The smarter you get, the more you will realize how little you actually know. Therefore, don't get stuck with your current level of pea-brained ignorance.

Have insight into the fact that wow, maybe, your real DNA is G-O-D. "I don't really know what that means, but wow, I'd like to know." And just the, "I would like to know" aspect helps soften your current level of ignorance, and then New Knowing starts flowing in.

And so, I am practicing, and I am suggesting that especially when you are doing your Yoga practice, and you are meditating, and whenever this seems like it might be halfway true, in those moments where it is easy to be open to this truth — if it is true — then get it while you can!

In those moments, feel the truth of G-O-D. You will start feeling loved. The more you do it, even just a little bit, the more the window opens.

Your real DNA is G-O-D. Go away with that one. Think about it a lot. Say it to yourself a lot. Debate about it. Because, at the least, if you are debating about it you are still in the arena of learning about it. And wouldn't it be nice!

So, you are not the dweeb you thought you were. Other people are not the dweebs you think they are. God, Supreme Being in Infinite Display, is the only thing that is going on, really, is the insight. Supreme Being is being everything that is being.

Cool. Cool!

And again, you will be clear about this for a moment, then you will flip, "Eh, that sucks." Or, "Life sucks. Life's hard. Can't wait till I get outta here."


Your real DNA is G-O-D, Love. Let that soak in whenever possible. Put yourself out in nature more frequently. Be alone more frequently. Have quiet moments where you are not hassled by the TV or other people. Or, be with other people and do this, you know, like now! Right now we are helping each other get clearer on this, or get clearer on whatever the Truth happens to be. And it just seems like G-O-D — L-O-V-E.

This is cool. This is radical. This is hopeful. Get clear on this. Then, when you notice yourself believing something else, just nip it in the bud, faster. That's all it is. Yes! Just nip it in the bud, like a little fly swatter. And then you will be left with whatever is true. Exactly. OK?

Keep in mind that if your real DNA is G-O-D, then that is the truth, already. It is not something you are working toward. Oh! There is no process involved to it, really. That is important to understand.
