That was my style performing to God, perhaps not George's! Shortly a fantastic white light started appearing out of the darkness, as my soul sang "I actually want to help you Lord" ;.Then some body started initially to arise out of the light.
That Holy One oscillated between strong and feminine. As I'n been praying to Jesus, I thought it might be him, but with out a beard. I started crying from the depths of my heart, since the Holy One proclaimed telepathically in to my heart.
I knew this Being to be just natural love. Then it was over. I was opportunity back to my human anatomy, reading the words to a fresh track telling me "it's been quite a long time coming, it's likely to be quite a long time gone." How true that's been.
Per year later, I found the cover of Autobiography of a Yogi. It had been Paramahansa Yogananda who had come in my experience! Next got meeting Baba Ram Dass, who proved that I wasn't mad and stated that Yogananda had seemed to many small religious seekers on drugs.
He also autographed my duplicate of Be Here Now. My next decade was spent being an future yogi and exercising Yogananda's Self-Realization Fellowship lessons and workouts, chanting, meditating and obtaining initiation in to Kriya yoga.
Yogananda's way and linage of gurus produced the necessary clarity for me to comprehend Jesus and Christianity better. Yogananda also showed me the fundamental reality behind the oneness of most religions.
And he brought me to Babaji, the Mahavatar who delivered him to America in the 1920s. Ever since I seen the name Babaji, I realized I realized Him. He and Jesus interact, behind the scenes, in the cosmic scheme of things.
And Babaji was to be the next thing in my constant religious evolution. But, I didn't know now that He had supposedly manifested a human body again and was residing in the little town of Haidakhan, in northern India. That will come later, combined with the mystery and myth of this recent manifestation.
After experiencing Bhagavan Das sing, I bought a dotara and began chanting mantras to God daily. This easy, ancient two- stringed tool is straightforward to play and allows one follow the drone sound into silence.
At this time, I purchased my own, personal invest the woods and met a man who'd lived with Babaji. He conducted a Vedic fireplace ceremony that Babaji had shown him to start my new abode.
I asked and grilled him repeatedly, wondering if that new Babaji was the same entity Yogananda wrote about. Sure, one and the same but peoples egos still issue His correct identity.
Babaji's new Kriya yoga was the path of reality, ease and enjoy while doing karma yoga- perform - and keeping one's mind on Lord, through replication of the ancient mantra Om Namaha Shivaya.
Babaji stated that this mantra alone was stronger than a thousand atomic bombs and His 1-800 number. I began now acim performing japa, or the replication of the mantra on 108 rudraksha beads, to get this vibration into my sub consciousness.
I also learned several ways to chant it on my dotara. With all this planning on, I bought "A Class in Miracles" and began the everyday instructions immediately. I tried to create sense of the Text but got nowhere;
each word bogged me down and needed to be re-read over a lot of times to assimilate. I was just also young, I informed myself. I was thirty-three. I'n offer with this particular Text later, someday, maybe.
