Paramahansa Yogananda on Resurrection and Christ Consciousness

Paramahansa Yogananda on Resurrection and Christ Consciousness

Paramahansa Yogananda pranam

Behold thine immortal Self resurrected with Christ in the illuminating Light of Christ Consciousness, present in every soul, every flower, every atom.
Be One With Christ Consciousness

When we open our inner eyes of soul wisdom, we behold the omnipresent Light of God. Within this Light is the consciousness of Christ, the “Son” or pure reflection of God present everywhere in the universe. This Christ Consciousness, the Infinite Christ, is God’s intelligence and love knocking on the closed eyelids of our souls, urging us that all we have to do is look to this Light within and we shall see all ignorance and diversities vanish. To him who has opened his inner eye, everything is One.

Resurrection means that the universal Spirit present in all creation as the Christ Consciousness is constantly being resurrected − awakened or manifested − in everything. Whenever you do away with ignorance and think good thoughts, Christ is being resurrected within you; that is, the Christ Consciousness that was fully manifested in Jesus is awakening within you.
Resurrection is not the power of Spirit in the body of Jesus only; Spirit is in everyone. Nor does man have to die in order to resurrect Spirit. The physical resurrection of Christ was only part of the lesson of his life. Every time you give up a weakness and feel happy in being good, Christ is resurrected anew. You can bring Christ Consciousness within you right now.

Resurrect your calmness from beneath the soil of restlessness; resurrect your wisdom from the enshrouding earthliness of ignorance; resurrect your love from beneath the sod of mundane human attachment − with its limited love for family, society, and country − to divine love for all.

To find the real Christ you must expand your consciousness as Jesus did….The physical way of practicing what Christ taught is to behave toward all as the children of your own Father, and the spiritual way is to meditate until you feel the vast joy of God through the Christ Consciousness. Universal brotherhood will not come until, by deepest concentration and devotion, you stand aside from all your restless thoughts and feelings and sit in the temple of your soul, wherein the vast joy of God expands and engulfs this world, and you realize there is naught else but That.

The Resurrection of Jesus in Light of Kriya Yoga

We understand resurrection in its true sense when we comprehend the yoga science that clearly defines the underlying principles by which Jesus resurrected his crucified body into the freedom and light of God….
Jesus’ resurrection was little understood, and much disbelieved even though he made himself visible to hundreds of people − not only to his close disciples. In those days they comprehended only that Jesus was dead and then he was alive, but they did not understand the science and art of ascension and resurrection, as is defined in the timeless scriptures of Yoga. No other science has detailed the descent of the individualized consciousness of God as the soul into man and its evolutionary and spiritual ascent back into Spirit. In this modern age, Kriya Yoga has been brought forward after being lost in the dark ages, as a definite method to hasten the spiritual evolution of human consciousness and open the inner cerebrospinal pathway of ascension.

“On the Road to Shambala”

“On the Road to Shambala”

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala
Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambala

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambala
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala

I can tell my sister by the flowers in her eyes
On the road to Shambala
I can tell my brother by the flowers in his eyes
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
Tell me how does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala
How does your light shine
In the halls of Shambala

Ten Key Values for True Social Security

The Green Party’s Ten Key Values

. Ecological Wisdom
. Social Justice
. Grassroots Democracy
. Nonviolence
. Decentralization
. Community-based Economics
. Feminist Values
. Respect for Diversity
. Personal and Global Responsibility
. Future Focus/Sustainability

————————————————

Ecological Wisdom
The Greens recognize that the Earth sustains all life forms.  Whatever we do to the web of life, we do to ourselves.

Social Justice
Greens find the worldwide growth of poverty and injustice unacceptable and are working for a world in which all can fulfill their potential regardless of gender, race, citizenship, or sexual orientation.

Grassroots Democracy
The powerless suffer the most from resource exhaustion and toxic pollution.  Greens believe in direct participation by all citizens in the environmental, political, and economic decisions that affect their lives.

Nonviolence
Greens reject violence as a way of resolving disputes – it is shortsighted, morally wrong, and ultimately self-defeating.  We advocate demilitarization and abhor state organized killing of any kind; therefore we are against the death penalty and we work to end war forever.

Decentralization
Power and responsibility must be restored to local communities, within an overall framework of ecologically sound, socially just values and lifestyles.  To counter the alienation of mass industrial society, we work toward the restoration of humanly-scaled communities, institutions, and technologies.  We view political decentralization as a prerequisite for substantive participatory democracy.

Community-based Economics
Greens seek the deconcentration of wealth and power; we assert that extreme disparities in personal wealth and concentrated control of productive assets are inherently undemocratic.  Therefore we advocate a new economics which first and foremost assures that the basic needs of everyone on the planet are met (sufficiency) – while taking account of the natural limits of the Earth.  We advocate decentralization in the economic sphere as well as the political sphere; this would mean regionalizing economic activity as much as practical – to foster local self-reliance and accountability.

Feminist Values
The ethics of cooperation and understanding must replace the values of domination and control.  Gender should not be a basis for discrimination nor for role typecasting.

Respect for Diversity
We honor the biological diversity of the Earth, and the cultural, sexual, and spiritual diversity of Earth’s people.  We aim to reclaim this country’s finest ideals: popular democracy, the dignity of the individual, and liberty and justice for all.

Personal and Global Responsibility
Greens express commitment to global sustainability and international justice both through political solidarity and personal lifestyles based on sufficiency and living lightly upon the Earth.

Future Focus/Sustainability
Like the Iroquois Indians, Greens seek a society where the interests of the seventh future generation are considered equal to the interests of the present.  Every generation should, minimally, seek to leave the planet no worse off than when it was bequeathed to them.  We must act in the present in such a way as to reclaim the future for our children and their children.

The White Swan (Hamsa) Meditation

The Revolution is Within


Long before Hinduism and Buddhism, the wise masters of India practised and transmitted powerful mantras of which the Hamsa meditation is said to be foremost.

This timeless wisdom mantra belongs to the ancient Vedic spiritual tradition. The Vedas are the oldest of man’s scriptures, ancient holy texts passed down through the generations. The mantra itself is part of the oral tradition that has continued through these many centuries. Although it is not a Buddhist meditation, it belongs to the Indian yoga tradition that the Buddha himself practised during the six years of austerity in the wilderness that led up to his enlightenment; I think therefore that it is probably safe to surmise that the Buddha himself used this mantra at some point in his practice.
