Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath is a truly amazing and inspiring Master Yogi from India. His YouTube videos have been a personal inspiration for years. I’ve had the pleasure of attending more than one of his events in the US over the years and have always had a wonderful experience at the very least. Many people have seemingly miraculous experiences around him and during his events, as well as before and after them in fairly high numbers.

He’s been a life long practitioner of various forms of Yoga and studies many ancient scriptures and texts. He’s got a pretty amazing book and other media out there, for those interested. In this video, he explains some about practicing Kriya Yoga and it’s many benefits to people all over the world. It’s the science of controlling the life force energy, also known as Prana or Pran, came to us all from ancient India.

Ancient History is one of my favorite research topics. I not only love the crazy possibilities for entertainment value, but also, approaching it with an open mind, I get an immense educational value from videos such as this next one.

It’s called The Mystery of the Carpathian Sphinx and the Origins of Man, and I’m trilled to make this post about it. I watched it for the first time only a short time ago, and it covered many ideas I have felt but not heard much said about, and others that were totally new.

Carpathian Sphinx Facing the Setting Sun

It’s written, narrated, directed and edited by Oana R. Ghiocel and features Robert M. Schoch, a Geologist and Professor at Boston University as well as other local experts.

My Personal Experience

Meditation has always been something that was foreign to me. Recently I have read the book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. The book emphasizes the dis ease we as humans have created for ourselves, arguably with the invention of time. We have carried time around as though it is the shell on a turtle’s back. We are constantly caught up in thoughts about future events and past memories, obsessing about them through constant thought. Whether it’s a concert we cannot wait for that is on Friday, imagining the swarm of people, hearing the sounds of the band, and even the car ride up, or a past memory of a spectacular date on the beach as the sun set breathtakingly over the horizon, these thoughts remove us from the present moment altogether. In doing so, we create a feeling of angst for the future, longing for the past and so on, ultimately causing emotional unease which, in turn, does not allow for our minds and bodies to function at their peak.

“Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.” Eckhart Tolle

The solution to this, Tolle describes, is to live in the “now”. Other people have described it as the “I am”. The way in which to do so is to be present, trying as much as possible to not pay attention to the wandering thoughts of the mind and instead, to focus on the detail of what is around you, the sounds, the smells, the things that interact with our senses. Meditation, it has been described, acts in a similar way. Through deep breathing exercises sitting or lying in a position that “opens the chakras” will allow for you to be in the present. This is just a very broad description of the two ideas, however, this is what lead me to the exploration of meditation. Refer to the video below.
