Raja Yoga: The path of the Mind

Raja Yoga deals with the mind and the ego. Through meditation and contemplation false ego is surrendered.

True ego, which is the spiritual ego, is the true nature of human consciousness. This is the part of you that searches for spiritual truth and true happiness.

When you have gained an understanding of truth through jnana yoga, meditation and contemplation expands your spiritual ego and increases your level of consciousness.

The first goal on the path to Enlightenment is to attain a state of unconditional love; currently only 0.4 percent of the world’s population reach this level.

This is about to change, however, for we have entered the new stage of our evolution, the information age.

Control of ones mind is difficult for many, because they think that they are their minds and the minds thoughts are their thoughts. This however is false.

The thoughts going through your mind are a continuous montage of the various programs and influences that you have been exposed to throughout your life. They are directly related to your level of consciousness.

The greatest realization that Raja yoga can offer, is that you are not your mind; you are the pure conscious awareness beyond mind.

This realization is quite trans-formative, and peaceful. The mind becomes a tool instead of a reactor.

To think, only when one chooses. To have pure focus and attention. To be in a state of peace, is quite blissful.

To begin this path, remember that thoughts are things. Surrender all negative, limiting thoughts. Simply let them pass.

They are not you, you are not thinking them, they are simply the projection of an energy frequency that your mind has been programed by.

Do not give any power to any negative thought, about anything!

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
