“People do not have a basic understanding about Yoga.  Some people think yoga is a religion.  Some people think it is for vitality and health.  Some people think it is to promote their personality.  In reality, this is all a misunderstanding.  The word yoga, as we in the West understand it, has come down from the biblical word, yoke.  The definition of a yogi is a person who has totally leaned on the Supreme Consciousness, which is God … Yoga is the union of the individual’s unit consciousness with the Infinite Consciousness.  That is all it means … 

“Calling kundalini anything other than pure Diving Creative Energy is nonsense.  The very power of God, of Jesus, of Mohammed, of Buddha and other manifestations of the Divine is nothing but the power of kundalini.  There is no other definition of this power.  Without kundalini nothing can exist.  In every human there is a soul, and that soul is nothing but kundalini, the coil that keeps your time piece going. The body is nothing but a time piece with a little crystal of life energy in it which makes it run, and kundalini is that crystal…  

“To achieve Universal Consciousness through any method, you have to raise your kundalini  Now, understand what kundalini is.  Kundal means lock, neck lock.  Kundalini means that coiled energy.  God is like an unlimited coil that separates itself into smaller coils that can uncoil and experience Infinity.  That is the simple reality of this life.  It is so simple, it is so scientific… If that coiled energy is joined with the seat of the soul, i.e. the pineal gland in the brain, what will happen?    

The energy of the glandular system will combine with the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain will receive signals and integrate them to a new and permanent level of awareness.  Then a person understands the effect of the consequence in a sequence of causes.  The raising of the kundalini awakens the creative potential in a person, and that person becomes totally and wholly aware.  We call it the Yoga of Awareness.  As all rivers must end up in the ocean, all yogas end up raising the kundalini 

After the eighth year of life, the pineal gland does not secrete fully. In order to function at its potential, it needs to draw upon the reserve energy that is stored at the naval area.  The uniqueness and beauty of that energy which developed, gave shape to and brought one onto this earth, is that it has absolutely no residue.  It is a pure energy.  You have to uncoil that energy to establish a functional connection with the pineal gland, and then the pineal gland will begin to secrete.  When the pineal gland secretes, the effect is that the brain cells work at least twenty percent, whereas normally they do not function more than five percent; a gain of fifteen percent in brain cell activity … 

“How does this affect the mind?  The mind is a constituent of the electro-magnetic field and the frequency of the being.  The mind is a quality.  It is an electro-magnetic field and the fixed frequency of the individual.  The wavelength you are at is your main frequency. You can expand your wavelength, or you can shorten it, that depends on you.  Consider a radio station that has a powerful, powerful wavelength. It can be heard all over; it can overlap small stations.  But if the radio station is weak, you cannot hear it in the next town … That is how the mind is.  It is the brain that controls the waves and the messages of the mind, and it is the pineal gland which stimulates the brain.  Once that pineal gland has started secreting, it can give you the power tor realize yourself in relation to the Universal Awareness.
