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.

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 Supreme I AM – venice class – Apr 29, 2014 tu

The big deal remember is that you did not make you. You are not here because of anything you have done. I am not here because of anything I have done. I am not conscious because I am "doing" conscious. You and I are not responsible for the fact that we exist. You and I are only here because GOD IS.

So realize: If you are not relaxed, then you are uptight. Your experience of you will be uncomfortable. As you relax, you will become the embodiment of comfort. You will expand energetically — sort of like a bubble, relaxing its outer border, which thereby becomes more permeable. You will then feel the air in which you are floating as being the air of which you are made. You will experience yourself merging with Infinity, and you will know there is a Unity. This is the experience of YOGA.

There is a Unity. There is a Singularity. Therefore, life is not the enemy. Therefore, relax. Especially when you are fearful, especially when it seems like life is the enemy, do your best to relax and become permeable . . . because, when you do, the wisdom of Unity will register with you. You will find yourself knowing what to do to resolve the problems that were causing you to get uptight.
