Yoga and The Drowning Lifeguard

5 Aug

Yoga and The Drowning Lifeguard…

Many people, even Christians, are into Yoga. In Sanskrit, ‘Yoga’ means ‘the joining.’ The premise of Eastern religion is that we are all God, but we have come under the illusion that we are not God.

Therefore, we have to join ourselves back. The problem: how can we be joined back to God if we are God in the first place? Yoga is to extinguish the self in order to merge with God. But, if you are God, then to extinguish yourself is to extinguish God.

If we’re under an illusion and lost, and at the same time we’re God, then God is also lost, which leaves no hope. So, who can be saved? It’s ultimately hopeless and miserable; one only has to go to India to see it.

There’s only one true joining; that is of the God who joined Himself to us, in life, in death, and in resurrection.. Jesus.. that you could be saved. Forget ‘the yoga’ and trying to join yourself to God.

Receive instead the love of God that has joined itself to your life. Rejoice and be glad. There is no true yoga, or joining.. except the Gospel.

 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16

Be joined to God today, by letting God be joined to you. Receive His presence in your secret place.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
