Alan Watts - Teaches Yoga (probably the most relaxing half hour I've ever listened to)
\\the word yoga as most of you doubtless know is the same as our word yoke why okay II the Latin word young Gary John join junction yoke union all these words I basically from the same root so likewise when Jesus said my yoke is easy he was saying really if my yoga is Sakai other shitty view of separateness a feeling of separateness the feeling of being cutoff from being I'm most civilized people do in fact feel that way because they have a kind of myopia attention focused on their own boundaries and what is inside those boundaries and they identify themselves with the inside and don't realize that you cannot have an inside without an outside that would seem wouldn't it be extremely elementary logic that we could have no sense of being ourselves of having a personal identity without the contrast of something that is not house sells that is to say other but the fact that we don't realize that self and other go together is the root of an enormous terrifying anxiety because what will happen when the inside appears what will happen when the so called I comes to an end because it seems to across if it didn't I mean if things did not keep moving and changing appearing on the salt the universe would be a colossal ball and therefore you are only aware of that things are alright for the vote I mean I hope most of the people in this gathering have a sort of genial sense inside them that for the time being things are going on more or less okay some of you may be but a very miserable and then your problem may be just a little different but it's essentially the same one but you must realize that that sense of life being fairly alright is inconceivable and unfeeling unless there is weighing way way in the back of your mind a glimmer of a possibility that something absolutely unspeakably awful might happen doesn't have gotten because who would die one day but there always has to be the vague apprehension the him to get danka that the awful awful are possible it gives spice to life now these observations are in line with what I'm going to talk about tonight of the intellectual approach to go there are basically Sutton principle forms of yoga most people are familiar with hot the yoga which is a psycho physical exercise system and that's the one you see demonstrated most on television because it has visual ... value see all these exercises lotus position people calling me legs round their necks I'm doing all sorts of Bob the 6 a side and they're good ... exercise is the most honest yoga teacher I know is a woman who teaches Hockley yoga and doesn't pretend to be any other kind of grew she does it very well then there is ... bhakti yoga Buffy means devotion and I suppose in general you will might say that Christianity is a form of bhakti yoga because it is yoga practice through dream reverence fought on love for some being felt more or less external to one 's self who is the representative of the divine then there is karma yoga karma means action and incidentally that's all it means does not mean the law of cause and effect when we say that something that happens to you is your karma all it's saying is it's your own doing nobody is in charge of comics if you karma yoga is the way of action of ... using one 's everyday life once trade or an athletic disciplines like sailing all suffer riding or track as your way of yoga has your way of discovering who you are then those Raggio that's the royal you and that's sometimes also called kundalini yoga and that involves very complicated psychic exercises having to do with awakening the Suppan power that is supposed to lie at the base of one spiritual spine and raising it up through 7 chakras all centers until it enters into the brain there's a very profound symbolism involved in that but I'm not going into that and then finally there is over there are several of us is mantra yoga Montreal go which is the practice through chanting of coming either out loud or silently certain sounds they've come a fox for contemplation Paul Walker's in Sanskrit call Chiana and Jana is the state in which one is clearly awake and aware of the world as it is as distinct from the world as it is described no other words in the state of John not you stopped thinking that is to say you stop talking to yourself and figuring to yourself symbolizing to yourself what is going on you simply are aware of what is and nobody can say what it is because of courtship ski well said the real world is on speed loved it double taken but that's Gianna that's awesome ... where one practice is to sit absolutely wide awake with eyes open but not think that's a very curious state I knew a professor of mathematics if western university the one to Hayes said you know it's amazing how many things that all that aren't so no way he was talking about old wives tales and ... scientific superstition the song but when you practice Gianna you're amazed how many things there Abadan's because when you stop talking to yourself and you are simply aware of what is that is to say of what you feel sense even that same tomb you suddenly find past and the future of completely disappear so also have disappeared the so called differentiation between the no on the known subject to the object the feeler on the feeling think of the thought they just stopped there because that you have to talk to yourself to maintain those things they're purely conceptual their ideas the phantoms ghosts so when you are now thinking stop all that goes away and you find your order in an eternal here now and is no way you're suppose to be nothing else supposed to do you know what you expect us to go because in order to think you're supposed to do something you have to think and so it's in credibly important too I'm think at least once a day for the very preservation of the intellectual so if we stop that temporary and get our mind clearer faults we become as Jesus said against children and get a direct view of the world it's very useful once you're an adult not much you could do with it when you're a baby because everybody pushes you around and now they pick you up and sit through data that secure that I'm you cannot do much except practice contemplation only if you can't tell anyone what it's like but when as an adult you can recapture the baby's point of view you will no water or child psychologists who always wanted to know how it is that a baby feels the baby according to Freud at least as the oceanic expiry that is to say a feeling of complete inseparability from what's going on the baby is unable to distinguish between the universe and his or her actions upon the universe and most of us if we got into that state of consciousness smite be inclined to feel extremely frightened I'm being beginning to oust a who's in charge I mean well out who controls what happens now we would ask that because we are used to the idea that the process of nature consists of travelers controversies things that do things that are done to got a mythological so many spiritual teachers and gurus well in look at that disciples and say I am god I have realized think but the important thing is that you are whether I have or not is that not of no consequence you whatsoever I could get up and say I have really put on the table yellow robe whatever it's come on have dollar Sean I'm going to you need the grace of guru in order to realize and so on on that to be a wonderful folks be like picking up pockets and selling you your own watch we but the point is you are and what we saying when we say that we're obviously saying something very important I love some the lack there is no way of defining that is to say going any further into words about see when a philosopher heroes such a statement as top dramas you are it all there is only the eternal now the US is either to wear so excited about it what do you mean by that and that he asked that question because he wants to continue in the word game he doesn't want to go on into an experiential dimension he wants to go on arguing because that's his trip and all these great mystical statements mean nothing what so ever their ultimate state just as you know the trees clouds in the mountains stocks have no meaning because they're not words words have meaning because they're symbols because they point to something other than themselves but stars like music music only bad music has any means classical music never has a mean and to understand it you must simply listen and observe its beautiful patterns go into its complex when your mind that is to say you available system get to the end of their tether to say when they arrive at the meaning state here is the critic and the the method of Jana yoga is to exercise one 's intellect to its limits so that you get to the part well you have no further questions to ask you can do this in philosophy study you got the right kind of team sure who shows you that all philosophical opinions what so ever off falls or at least if not false stream that partial so you feel a kind of intellectual vertigo which is called in a Zen Buddhist poem above not a tile to cover the head below not an inch of ground to stand on well where you where are you then of course you will you will you always will you discovered your it and that's very uncomfortable because you can grab it yeah I've discovered that whatever it is that I am that's not something inside my head it is is just as much out there as it is in here but whatever it is I cannot get hold of it well that gives you the you get butterflies in the stomach ... anxiety dramas and all kinds of things but this was all explained by Shankara the great Hindu ... commentator on the Upanishads the great monster of the non dualistic doctrine of the of the universe he said that which knows which is in all beings the Noah is never an object of its own knowledge so that to everyone who is in quest all of this cream cake a great experience the vision of god whatever you want to call it liberation when you think that your not it and they all grew could send you on a method to find and that may not be a bad thing for him to do because as Blake said a fool who persists in his folly will become wise to have a good who is a person who leads you on here Kitty Kitty Kitty Kitty Kitty I called something very good to so you ... you just wait ... but you gotta go through a lot of stages yet is that hot hot hot hot can I get that well I don't think it you all the time you I was talking of the Zen master the other day and he said I usual be my disciple I looked at him and said who was but his teacher and he looked at me and a very odd way that so you both that the laptop he gave me a piece of global yeah so you can't you see so long as you can be persuaded but the something law that you ought to be then you are you've divided yourself from reality from the universe from god whatever you want to call that top 10 top 5 months and you will find constantly if you if you were interested in anything like that since like one Alice's in the gestalt therapy in the ... sensitivity training in any kind of you know go what have you that there will be that funny sensation of what I'll call spiritual green that can be aroused by somebody indicating to you I'm there are still higher stages feud with tape you should meet my girls but so are you might say them now it to be truly realized you have to get to the point where you are not seeking any so then you begin to think well we we we will we will now be non seekers yeah you know like disciples of Krishna muddy who because he says he doesn't read any spiritual books they come read anything with mistress the horses if you know about becoming a spiritually I'm spiritual well you find that that too is what is called in Zen legs on a snake it's irrelevant you don't need not to see because you don't need anything and I mean that's like crawling into a hole in pulling the whole enough do you and of the great monster of this technique was a Buddhist Scala lived about ... 200 A. D. Colnago Judah invented a whole dialectic you got old school called Metallica where are the visit was a leader of the students was simply destroy all their ideas absolutely abolish the philosophical notion and they get the he BG they see he didn't have the heat he seemed perfectly relaxed and not having any part the point of view well as a teacher how can you stand we have to have something to hang on to who does who are you and eventually you discover of because that is not necessary to hang on to anything to rely on it this nothing during long because you're it it's not the universe it's like asking the question where is the universe and by that I mean the boat whatever about says it did space everything in it is falling around everything else but there's no concrete floor underneath the thing to crash because the space you can think of infinite space if you like you don't have to think of curved space space that goes out and out came out for ever and ever and has no ID what is that of course it's you what else could it be only if the universe is delightfully rate so that it as it looks at itself in order not to be one sided prejudice it looks at itself from an uncountable number of points of view we thus avoid Salop schism with as if I were to have the notion that it's only me that's really here and you're all in my drink of course it's on that that point of view cannot really be disputed except by imagining a conference of solipsism arguing as to which one of them was the one that was really that now you see if you understand what I'm saying with the ordered Keller and then take the next step and say it but I understood it now but I didn't feel then what next I raise the question why do you want to feed you say I want something mall because that's again that spiritual green and you can only say that because you didn't understand there is nothing to pursue because your it and if you don't know that you always wear it and if you don't know that another was to put it in in terms for Jewish terms if you don't know the true god from the beginning what happens is that you try to become god by false therefore you stop being violent and the strippers and this and that and the other all are violence all our competitiveness all our terrific anxiety to survive because we didn't know from the beginning that we were at well then you would say if we didn't know from as in fact you did baby well everybody says well nothing would ever happen it didn't happen it's a some of it's pretty messy but what people don't realize is they say well ... take take the Hindus it's basic to Hindu religion that we are all god in disguise and that the world is an illusion all that has after but if that is the case if Hindus I'm really awakened Hindus by the knowledge of their union with the godhead would sit may not why then Hindu music the most and read it and accomplish novelist when they sit and play they locked it they're enjoying themselves norms very complicated musical gate but when we come of the symphony orchestra gets out everybody dresses and evening dresses most serious expression all the ordinances down that I was like it's a kind of church I was not of that correct exist well the drama the tabla player laughs at the sarod player as they compete with each other in all kinds of marvelous improvise Asians so if you do find out by any chance a who you really are you instead of becoming merely lazy you know you stop laughing and laughing leads to dancing and dancing needs music and we could play with each other for a check //
