Airplane (or airport!) Yoga

Airplane Yoga

This is an excerpt from Dr. Cousens’ book, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine: In the process of working out the best overall exercise system for airplane travel I have sought the guidance and direct input of Kali Ray, a Master Yogini, who is the founder of Kali Ray TriYoga®. (See Resources Directory.) It is said that yogis of old became so accomplished in their spiritual practices that they developed special powers, including the ability to fly. However, in the West, since the technology already exists for people to fly at high speeds and with a lot less personal self-mastery than the […]

A Liberation Lifestyle

There are two levels of dharma. The first is what you do in your life. The second is the ultimate dharma – to know God. If you have the right perspective, everything is pointing that way… but that is the background for the discussion. When we say the prayer, “L’shem yichud”, it is a reminder that we are multi-dimensional beings, living both on the physical plane, the astral plane, the mental plane also on the plane of the Nothing, the plane of chokmah, or wisdom. In the yoga tradition there is a nice way of explaining dharma. It is one […]

Guru Tattva; The Divine Principle in Every Person

Guru Tattva is a yogic term for the Divine principle in every person. To really understand the spiritual life or the spiritual path, it is all about this one thing. One religion is a scoop of water from the pond. Another religion is another scoop of water from the pond. We can have another scoop of water, but we are not talking about the pond. The Guru Tattva is the pond. Is that which is prior to the religion. It is that which exists within you as you.  The principle of the spiritual path is to realize Guru Tattva. This […]

Poetry and Power of Kundalini, the Divine Feminine

Kundalini is the power of consciousness. As Muktananda poetically describes it, “She is the supreme creative power of the Absolute Being. . . .Dwelling in the center of the universe, she holds it together and maintains it. Similarly . . . she dwells at the center of the human body, in the Muladhara chakra (first chakra) and controls and maintains our whole physiological system through its network of 72,000 nadis . . . she makes everything work in our bodies . . . our mind, senses, power of motion.” Another term for Kundalini energy is prana.

Vegetarian Diet and Health

The following article is from Spiritual Nutrition, Six Foundations for Spiritual Life and the Awakening of Kundalini, Gabriel Cousens, M.D. From a Biblical perspective, veganism (a diet free of flesh, dairy, and eggs) was given as the dietary key to spiritual life right at the beginning of the Torah in Genesis 1:29: “Then God said, ‘I give you every seed- bearing plant on the face of the whole Earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” Ten generations later, when Noah was leaving the ark after the great flood and there was […]

The Importance of Joy

The Importance Of Joy

Joy plays a very important role in spiritual life.  It’s said in the Torah that one should serve God with joy.  When people serve without joy, they don’t receive the benefits of serving.  In fact, they sometimes get the downside.   What does it mean to serve God with joy?  There are different levels of this (being that there are five levels of the body and five or six levels of the mind depending on the tradition).  The highest level (the sixth level) of the mind is called hiranyamaya kosha.  At the level of the hiranyamaya kosha there is a non-causal love.  […]

Kundalini

Kundalini (Shekhinah in Hebrew) is the inner spiritualizing energy that takes us to the experiences of non-causal ecstasy, joy, peace, love, and God awareness. These are our natural emotions in Liberation. The power of Kundalini’s unfolding activates the preconditions for Self-realization (Liberation). Kundalini is the Grace of God, which has the potential to transform us into the non-dualistic, holographic, living awareness of the Truth of God, of I AM THAT. A major purpose in understanding Spiritual Nutrition is to eat and live in a way that enhances the spiritualizing force of Kundalini. Once the Kundalini is awakened, it moves through the physical […]
