If the earth were a little closer or further away from the sun, if the moon wasn’t balanced in orbit acting as a stabilizer, the planet wouldn’t have been able to foster consciousness in this human form. An intricate balance of hot and cold gasses, liquids and solids form this womb, Mother Earth.    WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH YOGA, JEWEL IN THE LOTUS    page 44.6558_586296491399714_213917850_n


Lightness of being is mirrored in the natural world. Solids are dense, rigid and confined in shape, following more rules. Liquids seek their own level and are fluid. Gasses are less dense, volatile, follow the least rules, and they disperse to fill available space. An unselfish motive for following the practice and looking inside and becoming companion to your more subtle, finer self, a more realized being’s awareness is volatile, and fosters greater empathy.988261_191491411019416_592685364_n


If there is a book that answers the universal questions you are hesitant to even consider because our culture pretends those questions are unanswerable: Who you really are and what you are doing here. The natural purpose of existence and how to live with meaning. The deep underlying truth explaining everything. Wouldn’t you want to read that book?13383_367829040004116_1274421561_n


The Light Energy Matrix reveals properties common to other energy matrixes. As most easily understood, exemplified by the Sound Energy Matrix—an octave. The seven colors of the spectrum plus the half-notes at the base and top of the range, straddling. The prism separates the essence of the white light into the different wave lengths. The pyramid can be thought of as two prisms, occupying the same space, perpendicular, focusing the mid-range where the yellow sun energy (apogee of the physical) meets the green love energy — the beginning of the Spiritual.

If you have read your WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH YOGA, JEWEL IN THE LOTUS, you know the quality that is the nature of the mid-point of the octave. The pyramid is a perfect machine, with no moving parts, filtering for and focusing this quality in perpetuity.


The physical body is the temple of the soul. It houses organs that make it possible for consciousness to exist on the physical plane. It deserves care and respect. The reasons for being on the physical plane are the lessons that can only be learned in this in this material form.


Just as the term implies, self realization is an operation performed by the ‘self’. There is a human tendency to hope for answers and solutions to life’s big questions from the outside. People look to religions, philosophies, science, teachers, and even alien intervention for answers, often hoping for intervention with solutions provided by others. This is a diversion because all the wisdom and answers are within. It is our duty as individuals to sort our experience in the light radiating from our individual being, to organize it into a system of understanding as personal as each of our unique spirits.

Yoga provides the tools to accomplish this most sacred task. To place your understanding in the hands of others is to forfeit your very soul. Your soul can’t be destroyed, but it can be delayed on its journey to the self realization that will be the joyous expression of your complete self wrapped in unimaginable bliss.

Learn yoga, allowing you to do that most pleasurable task — self realization. This is the only true ‘work’, the fruits of which will empower you personally, those you love, and all humankind.

The fourth, or heart chakra’s, color is a beautiful chlorophyll green and its element is air. The lower three chakras are the material universe and the fourth chakra is the transition point to our divine spiritual manifestation. The heart chakra is the point of transition and the upper three chakras are the higher, or spiritual, centers. The ascending line of energy through the Sushumna  parallels the evolutionary ascent of humankind from animal to spiritual being. A horizontal line, the point of transition, forms a cross. This is the symbol of the fourth chakra. The teachings of Jesus are fourth chakra teachings. “…And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” is also an expression of fourth chakra teaching. Astrology, based on observations of earth in relationship to its slowly changing stellar influences, divided earthly time into two thousand year segments, or ages. We are now leaving the segment when the teachings of Jesus were to manifest as the prevailing order. This era, the Piscean Age, shares with Jesus the symbol of the fish. The new age we’re starting to enter is the Aquarian Age, the age of understanding. If we can just get our tails over the fence, we will begin to share the promise of the miracles Jesus taught are our birthright. Weight Loss Through Yoga, Jewel in the Lotus        page 62
