The Paths Of Yoga - 456 words
Yoga comes from the Sanskrit verb yui, which means to yoke or unite. It is a union of the individual consciousness with the Infinite consciousness (Fisher, 89). The goal is to unite oneself with God and the practice of yoga is one of the paths that are taken to accomplish that goal. There are four main paths of yoga: Raja is the path of physical and mental control. Karma is the path of action. Bhakti is the path of devotion, and Jnana is the path of knowledge or wisdom (Roberts). Raja yoga is often referred to the royal path of meditation.

My problems with this were that my diet did not support me nutriciously and I did not leave my mothers apartment. I was left with a feeling of being trapped in an unhealthy and stiffling environment.

Psychedelic Yoga The Application of Yoga Meditation Techniques to the Use of Psychedelic Sacraments By Sri Brahmarishi Narad The fact that psychedelic drugs induce a greater sensitivity to subtle spiritual and psychic energies, and speed up the influx of impressions from deeper levels of consciousness, raises the immediate question of how these energies can be properly understood and handled. Obviously, if these energies are not guided, they can do more harm than good. The application of traditional Yoga meditation techniques while under psychedelic experiences, can provide a constructive solution to this problem. According to Yoga philosophy, the most spiritual and powerful aspect o ...

When this chakra is fully developed, union with God-consciousness is possible, and Illumination takes place. By focusing the attention in any one of the chakras, the lower overtones of the concentration of consciousness in that location activates that chakra and increases the energy flow in it, making possible a conscious entry into the superphysical planes of energy. Meditation on the first three chakras, namely the Muladora Chakra, the Sacral Chakra and the Solar Plexus Chakra is not recommended because this can arouse lower emotions and sexual passions. ...

This creates common node points in the inner plane structure of the chakra. Vibrations of different frequencies and different wavelengths all begin and end together at these common node points. This is made possible by the fact that the wavelengths of the various vibrations and their frequencies, all bear exact mathematical rates to each other, like the notes in a musical scale.

When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe.
