Lesson 55: The Integral Yoga and the Path to a Conscious Life

All of your life is this process: from the vertical (inner) to the horizontal (outer) and from the horizontal (outer) to the inner (vertical). It is the individual breathing in and breathing out that makes up all of life. You descend into human form. You scale the heights to Truth and Wisdom, and then you descend once more into the horizontal to transform your life and the world.

Lesson 54: Sat Chit Ananda

The bookends of Time are essentially Ignorance (horizontal) on one end and Truth (vertical) on the other. Ignorance must ascend to Truth (vertical) and then Truth descends to daily life (horizontal), transforming Ignorance into Truth which is the equivalent of hell into heaven on earth. The amount of distance that exists between them is the secret formula by which you live your life through either illusion, death and pain or truth, life and joy.

Lesson 53: To Dare the Impossible

What is gained today is often lost somewhere down the road. There is no escape from the task of evolving and becoming. Just when you thought you were done, it is time to take another step. For there is no safety but inner safety. There is no true strength but inner strength. And it is a never ending journey. The soul without end seeks to experience itself, to realize itself in human form.

Lesson 52: The Soul's Choice

At last, the meeting with infinity has occurred and the veils of ignorance have been pulled back, revealing that the thing that you always yearned for is the thing that you already are. Where you thought yourself imprisoned in some way, you discover you were the jailer. And now, you see the opportunity to smile in the middle of the process of your becoming, warts and all.

Lesson 51: Hiding in Human Guise

And as you wait, listening for the infallible words that are woven like magical threads into the unnoticed and mundane steps of everyday life, who is it that is there hiding in human guise, waiting? Underneath the struggle, beneath the wounds of the past, absent of the millions of meaningless thoughts that rule your mind, who is hiding in human guise?

Lesson 50: Tat Tvam Asi

How is it possible that this crummy example of a human being is God? There must have been some kind of mistake. And certainly not those people! Everyone knows they are unforgivable! And look at my brother-in-law who is a train wreck. He can't possibly be God! To understand this phrase, you have to dare to believe what your mind dares not. That is, that you are God and you are playing a game called, "No, I'm not."

Lesson 49: The Calm Established Things

Such is personal growth and transformation. For something new to occupy the mind, something old must go. In order to run your cosmos, you must be willing to remove those old shoes in order for the new cosmos to run smoothly. But the mind will resist. Your psychological biology and patterns will cry out against being silenced. But if you won't do it, the universe will do it for you.

Lesson 47: The Gate of Immortality

But there is an inner life that does not depend upon the physical world, does not require perceptions and the physical senses and is independent of the ups and downs of daily life. The inner life is not ruled by the mind and does not require the quest for passion, adventure, fulfillment and experience because it is whole and complete without them.

Lesson 45: Imagination's House

The immutable laws of nature suggest that all that is physical will one day be no more. Here today, gone tomorrow. The daily work and constant vigilance of training your mind to see what your eyes cannot see can seem so daunting, if not impossible. When your world is in chaos or the physical body is in pain, it is difficult to reconcile these two eternal foes: the visible and invisible worlds...the outer you (the body) and you that lies within (the soul).
