The Original and Final Word on YOGA

Standard
paramatmaDoes YOGA Mean to MERGE Two Entities into ONE Entity, or One Non-Entity?  Or is YOGA About the RELATIONSHIP that JOINS Two Together?

The Sanskrit root of the word YOGA can most significantly be found in the cognate (linguistically related) Greek root    of the Biblical word  zeugnymi, the root of the Latin Biblical word iugum, the root of the English Biblical word YOKE and the theological word conJUGal as in Sacramental Marriage and the theology of Bridal Mysticism.  What does this word mean in terms of JOINING TWO-AS-ONE?

In all of the known words with this root, the meaning is to unite TWO as One, as in a YOKE of oxen, or in the LOVE of conJUGal or Bridal Mysticism.  This word NEVER MEANS to in any way dissolve or anihilate TWO entities and merge them into One!  Even in the word Conjugal Love, the concept of TWO BODIES JOINED AS ONE IN SEXUAL UNION, does NOT mean that the two Spirit-Souls have ceased to exist!  Thus the ONE FLESH of the Biblical New Testament, Book of Mark, Chapter 10, Verse 9 specifically mentions the FLESH of the conJUGal union of natural marriage.

10.9  “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.”

As Spirit-Souls the Lover and Beloved do not cease to be two conscious entities. They do not merge to become a single conscious entity, or die (cease to exist) to become a new single entity with the memories and attributes of the former two.

NARA-HARI, Exodus & the Jewish PERAZON, HAREDIM & DOSSIM People of God, Part 3 (Love Requires Freedom)

Standard

A SHIRE is an ASYLA and a Dharma- ASHALA.  Here is a short, and very deficient introduction to the subject of Redemption, MOKSHA / MISSA MANU-MISSION and Religious Salvation as ASYLA.  I have studied MOKSHA / MANUMISSION, ASYLA and the ancient religio-political Alliances, Leagues and Federations of Asyla for over 40 years.  The history of the ancient World could be summed-up as a perpetual struggle between the lovers of freedom and the One True benevolent Sattva Guna God, HERU-VASU-ATUM / ELI-YAHU-ADON / HARI-VASU-ATMAN that they worshiped, and the cruel enslaving forces of the self-appointed False Gods of The World.  The below references completely miss the connections of the anti-slavery forces to Helios Worship, and do not understand the relationship between the Eastern and Western Bhakti Yoga ‘Free Will’ and Divine Love Traditions. LOVE requires self-possession and the physical freedom to serve the person or persons of one’s own desiring.  Thus FREEDOM of relationship is necessary in the religious, the divine, and in the merely human realm. LOVE necessitates FREEDOM.  Spiritual, intellectual and physical Freedom is fundamentally necessary to active LOVING.  LOVE as DEVOTIONAL SERVICE cannot be incarnated without the physical opportunity and ability or facility to do so.  Thus both freedom as opportunity and freedom as disciplined “skillful means” is necessary for the fullest and most perfect expression of Love.   Read the rest of this entry
