Yoga and early Gnostic Christians share the understanding that each individual comes to knowledge of God through direct experience. This is the very essence of the teachings. In Greek ‘Gnosis’ means knowledge. Both teachings also consider reincarnation an obvious truth. For 200 years after Jesus, it is estimated half of the followers of his teachings, Gnostic Christians, believed in reincarnation. The Roman Church, to consolidate power, systematically destroyed chapters of the Bible discussing reincarnation. The modern teaching of Christianity descended from this tradition. Many Christian’s practicing yoga are relearning a direct relationship with God and to only accept as truth what they learn through personal direct experience.

It forgets the requisite coalescence that allows it to exist, making consciousness and thought possible. To state it mildly, the mind has thought itself into a state of imbalance. Yoga reveres balance.

It is concerned with the assimilation of food, waste removal, and sexual function. Apana is also the energy that pushes us out of the womb during birth and is often referred to as pelvic prana.

Each of us has a personal path. The closest thing to ‘sin’ is not to follow that unique way that only you know. Your road map is karma (action), that your spirit can read, as seekers have done through the ages. Joy is the sign you’re on course — follow your bliss.532252_532133776825281_2007264839_n
