Christ Consciousness

Happy Wednesday Omyoga blog readers and followers. I appreciate your visit and I appreciate you! Thank you. Today, I would like to shed light on the Bible quote in the image above: John 10:30 where Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew and Aramaic) says, quite simply and directly, that “I and the Father are One.” If you already know the fundamental truth of the Mandukya Upanishad which says that “All this is OM”, then you will naturally see that Jesus is identifying himself with OM, which is the revealed Sound-Symbol for God, who is Unlimited, Infinite, Eternal, and Boundless Divine Spirit, called “Brahman” in ancient Sanskrit. So, Jesus is saying, really, “I am OM”. This is true “Christ Consciousness” in my humble opinion (IMHO). How is this so? Simple. Do a breathing experiment and exercise here. As you breathe in, visualize, mentally the “OOO” sound in your mind. Do this slowly and easily. When your lungs are full of air and prana, relax for a moment. Then, as you slowly exhale, mentalize the “MMM” sound in your mind. This is the alignment of mental and physical vibration and flow with that of the Divine (God, Brahman). Jesus understood this. Buddha understood this. Krishna understood this. Self-realized yogis have understood this and understand this today. This is a staple of the timeless path of Kriya Yoga. You can also just sit in silence and stillness and listen, as awareness, to the natural humming of the universe around you. That is God. That is Brahman, Divine Spirit. He is manifesting as your veritable life force, the “Pranava OM”. I do not consider myself to be an advanced yogi by any stretch of the imagination. However, from the standpoint of understanding OM academically and engaging daily in this kind of breathing and mantra meditation, this is why I say I am an “OM yogi”. OM is our life force. OM is the Pranava. OM is the revealed Sound, Word, Vibration, and Name of God, according to countless realized masters like Babaji, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Swami Sivananada, Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and others. OM is true Christ Consciousness. Namaste, Keith
