"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...
Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"
~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.

Yes, I've heard that as well.

Which gets me thinking.

The tribes honor and respect the elders (both men and women) for their experience and wisdom. They pass along the history, stories, and teachings.

It has me wonder, in this "modern" age, how much does the general society do this? How much gets lost in understanding ourselves by not respecting and listening to what the elders have to tell?
It's only life.

Reminds me of HOW islam is propagated by way of Hadith ( Prophet Mohd's actual spoken words) versus "words/phrases" written by his followers some 1400 years AGO. Same goes to Christianity in which we are taken back to some 2000 years back to learn about Jesus's life!

There also remains HOW Jesus had traveled to India during his missing years to which many Christians find it difficult to accept. All in all WHEN can ppl move away from organized religion and re-focus on "inner engineering" for self realization?
