Lately I have delving more into Eastern Spirituality, and it has been quiet enlightening to say the least. I have been familiar with some aspects of Vedic – ancient Indian spirituality, but not in great depth. But what I am quickly seeing is that it is far richer and far more enlightening than any Christian dogma that’s for sure. Vedic sacred texts like the Sutras of Patanjali, are a blend of psychology and spirituality, teaching one had to reach the perfection of the pure self. Essentially, he is showing us how to re-establish the soul as the seat of absolute purity within us. And the further I investigate Eastern spirituality, it becomes very plain to see that this was the school of the soul where Jesus for sure was educated. When one reads ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ by Paramahansa Yogananda, one sees the breath taking and awe inspiring lives of the Indian Yogis, it de-mystifies a lot of the miracles of Jesus and puts them into a more scientific and spiritual context, that is at last more comprehendible to the 21st century spiritual seeker. As Jesus said in John 14;12; ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do these works that I do, you too shall do, and greater works than these he will do’, he meant it. He meant it, because he learnt how to do them in India. Jesus like any of us did not come into this world fully self-realised, he had his own work to do on himself, just as we do. For we all are spiritual beings with the same capabilities, only we do not know yet how to tap into them. As we evolve and become more aware and more spiritual, we see how our senses open up to many new possibilities. Essentially, we become more clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentient (clear feeling), and claircognizance (clear knowing), as our spiritual energy expands as our third eye opens. But, it is not something ‘miraculous’, for these ‘gifts’, though they seem as physic or as magic, are all just energy. It is a natural organic energetic experience, which is; as our spiritual energy expands, our capabilities expand with it. Miracles are nothing but movements of energy; a play on energy as such. And this same spiritual energy runs through us all, if only we use it intelligently and correctly. The yogis of India did and still do marvellous miracles through knowledge of manipulation of energy. They raise the dead, they make things materialise, they do all that Jesus did. For it was them who tutored him. And many documents and proofs exist that Jesus did indeed spend the ‘lost’ years of his life; his youth in India and Egypt learning. But, conveniently those books explaining that, did not make it into the Christian bible. It suited the founders of Catholic dogma to keep us in the dark, so that they kept control over the unaware public. But, nowadays all this information thankfully is freely available to us in books and via the internet, and we too can learn to expand. Jesus was indeed a Yogi Master, he ‘mastered’ himself, he was self – realised more than anyone. For he was the Yogi extradinaire. You can see this really if you look again at the more esoteric and mystical gospel of John, and the writings of St. Paul. If Eastern spirtuality was the way that Jesus took, then, I for sure think that it has a lot to offer us. And I do not mean doing pretzel yoga poses, I mean the way to self -realisation as a soul. With Vedic spirituality we see easily how we are meant to experience God. By experiencing God, we come to know that we are part of God. That the Creator and the Created are One. It leads us directly to unity consciousness. Unlike Catholicism, or the Christian religions, it is not just trying to teach us about God, but instead teaches us how to have a direct experience of God, and with God. And that for me is truly the ultimate spiritual experience, and I believe it is what Jesus himself was trying to show us, but sadly that got twarted and twisted through the centuries. Diluted by dictators and destroyed by ignorance. Thankfully, we now live in an age of free thinking, and have access to information that we did not have before. So put on your investigators cap, and start looking. You may be surprised at what you will find. Happy hunting.

Blessings,

Edel.
