Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach. ― Aristotle
I teach the essence of Yoga knowing the I can’t really teach the essence of Yoga. The essence of Yoga is a grace experience that comes from within you and through you which Lights up your life. In the words of the poet W.B. Yeats “I am blessed and can bless “- Vascillation IV
The blessing I have in teaching the essence of Yoga is to remind you of this fact.
I have nothing to teach you other than to trust the teacher within. This is the role of any spiritual teacher. They are not there to teach you what to see but HOW TO SEE and how to be KNOWN THROUGH.
No one can certify you as a teacher of union other than the Universe. This is true university education. It took me around 45 years before I felt able to teach Yoga as it is presented here.
You can’t remind people of the magnificence of the union experience if you have not had that experience.
Such is the history of religion where you have the blind leading the blind and persecuting those who are KNOWERS rather than believers.
Belief comes from fear and is the most destructive thing. One must be free of fear and of belief. – Jeddu Krisnamurti
When you have been graced the experience of union you KNOW it because you are both the KNOWER and the KNOWN at the same time.
If you have any doubt about ever having been graced the experience of union then you haven’t had it.
You don’t stay in this state of sacred unity. You return and your life is different. You have gone through the Gateless Gate (Buddhist metaphor). You have been through the Narrow Gate (Christian metaphor).
You have stepped from time into eternity. You have experienced eternal life in the HERE and NOW.
Teaching the essence of Yoga isn’t advertised. I understand why. How to promise people an experience you can’t give them. However, at least for yourself, you can be clear that you have a longing for union.
Even if it is only, you who become interested in taking the journey of Yoga then that will be enough. This is the one truly effective way in which to bring peace on earth.
This is because Yoga invites the KNOWING of a peace beyond opposites. It is from this experience that you radiate the wonder of sacred unity.
You don’t advertise the fact, but you become a Presence that those who long for the Essence of Yoga are attracted to.
