Our experience of life now is ….. well, let me say, “challenging.” We are in the throes of a changing time. It is a time of questioning the meanings and purposes of our lives and the roles we have taken on to survive and thrive. We are seeing the qualities of limitation and separation that are inherent to the underlying belief structure of our present paradigm. And we are beginning to understand and accept that the attitudes and behaviors arising from these beliefs are destroying the earth, our outer environment, and our lives, our inner environment. We cannot continue to seek our meaning, purpose, value, and identity in this paradigm. We must find different beliefs; new meanings, new purposes, new roles. I think all of us have been praying, asking for guidance and help as we seek a new way of being. As it says in Mathew, “Ask, and it shall be given you …, Knock; and it shall be opened unto you.” I believe that it is by design that the practices of Yoga and Qi Gong have come into our present experiences. For these, in their essence, are practices in consciousness. It is in consciousness that we are aware of our beliefs and choose the beliefs we hold as our truth. These beliefs form our reality; they become our experiences of life! Though our practice begins in the vibrational; the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental levels of our being, it quickly reveals that we are also consciousness. We then become aware of the mystical interface between our consciousness and vibrational existence. The practice leads us deeper within where we learn to navigate this interface. Along the way, we are given the keys and principles that guide us to, and help us face, our internal unknown ----- help us to be present at this interface without contraction, judgement, a need to control, or expectation of outcome. Our open presence or surrender before this inner “altar” is our invitation to God. This is our communion; this is how we become a living path of transformational change. Pantanjali, in his Yoga Sutras, wrote, “Yoga is the neutralization of the alternating (vibrating) waves in consciousness.” One thing that I think is obvious to all of us is that we are here to experience this world. But I believe we were not meant to be trapped here. Our consciousness, the very essence of Who We Are, does not come from our experiences of the world, it comes from something that we cannot know through the vibrational i.e. mind, emotion, energy, and matter (the alternating waves). It is only to the extent that we seek and, therefore, attach our identity and our personal value to our experiences of this world that we become entrapped within it. Both Yoga and Qi Gong Practice are teaching us how to experience vibrational existence (Creation and our bodies) while knowing that we (our true identity and value) do not come from these experiences. We are learning to experience this world, to experience everything that it has to offer, without getting entrapped and limited by our experiences.
