Yoga and Sex


Well said, Kiki, very well said. 



Vanished the veils of light and shade,
Lifted every vapor of sorrow,
Salted away all dawns of fleeting joy,
Gone the dim sensory mirage.
Love, hate, health, disease, life, death,
Perished these false shadows on the screen of duality.
The storm of maya stilled
By magic wand of intuition deep.
Present, past, future, no more for me,
But ever-present, all-flowing I, I, everywhere,
Beyond the imagination of expectancy,
Is this, my Samadhi state.
Planets, stars, stardust, earth,
Thoughts of all men, past, present, future,
Every blade of grass, myself, mankind,
Each particle of creation’s dust, anger, greed, good, bad, salvation, lust,
I swallowed – transmuted all
Into a vast ocean of blood of my own Being.
Smoldering joy, off-puffed by unceasing meditation,
Which blinded my tearful eyes,
Then burst into immortal flames of bliss,
And consumed my ears, my frame, my all.
Thou art I, I am Thou,
Knowing, Knower, Known, as One!
One tranquilled, unbroken thrall of eternal living, ever-new peace,
Enjoyable beyond imagination of expectancy, Samadhi bliss!
Not an unconscious state
Of mental chloroform without a willful return,
Samadhi but extends my conscious realm
Beyond limits of the mortal frame
To farthest boundary of eternity,
Where I, the Cosmic Sea,
Watch the little ego floating in Me.
Not a sparrow, nor a grain of sand, falls without my sight.
The dark earth, mountains, seas are molten liquid!
The flowing sea changes into vapors of nebulae!
Aum blows upon vapors, opening wondrously their veils.
Oceans stand revealed of shining electrons,
Till, at the last sound of the cosmic drum (Aum),
Vanish the grosser lights into eternal rays
Of all-pervading bliss.
From joy I came, for joy I live, in sacred joy I melt.
Ocean of mind, I drink all creation’s waves.
Four veils of solid, liquid, vapor, light, lift aright.
I, in everything enter the Great Myself.
Gone forever: fitful, flickering shadows of mortal memory.
Spotless is my mental sky – below, ahead, and high above,
Eternity and I, one united ray.
I, a tiny bubble of laughter,
Have become the Sea of Mirth Itself.

(Paramahansa Yogananda)

Modern Day Guru


True story. Last Wednesday on the day Steve Jobs passed away my Safari web browser kept crashing. I would open the program and it would immediately crash and I would open it again and it would crash again. Unusual. This went on for some time until I finally relented and went on to other things. Since I go to bed early I found out about his passing the next morning. I couldn't help but feel a loss. A great one had come and gone.

Like many, I had a deep fascination with Steve Jobs. In a way he was like a guru for me. A guru who taught by example and inspired the world through his tireless passion for quality and innovation. It is his sincere vision and insight that really made me take notice. Even from someone who isn't really technologically inclined such as I am. I mean I do my best, but I'm no techno brainiac. There is something profoundly infectious when a human being lives their passion at the level Steve Jobs did. The out pouring we have witnessed since his death was announced proves it so. What is that? What is it that he had that quickened the hearts and minds of us all? There are thousands of CEOs out there, but a rarity to have made an impact in this way. It is completely fascinates me. The energy. The vibrato. The discipline! It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

I'm taking notes.

Thank you, Steve. Thank you!
