The ART of … Yin &Yang
Sorry for the typos and the rant… However it does bring up some interesting ideas to contemplate. What is the role of government? Obviously I support paying for what I use. However, the woman standing in line next to me doesn’t have a choice but to drive on the private highways in order to get to her two minimum wage jobs. What should have cost her $800 is costing her $3000 because the system didn’t recognize her new license plates. And the privatized north Texas Tollway Authority store is taking her to court. That’s right they are a store. Are we moving to a system where only the rich can drive fast from point A to point B? only the rich get a fastpass for Disney World? Where the rich complain about taxes yet I have no problem paying for private roads private police private this and private that.
The art of… Privatization - outsourcing government responsibility:
#NTTA North Texas Transit Authority. How much did you pay in tolls in 2013? For those of you that don’t like the government that don’t like a big taxes this seems to be the future! Pay corporation to do what government should do… let’s privatize the police privatize libraries, privatize prisons, privatize the fire department. btw we spent $874.73 for the privilege of driving on North Texas roads. Of course that would have been 50 percent higher had we not had toll tags. Imagine imagine a raise of $800 in your taxes, that would be an uproar however people in North Texas don’t seem to mind to privatize the highway. (at North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA))
I am sitting on the altar of my throbbing heart. I watch the roaring, shouting torrent of life-force moving through my heart into the body. I turn backward to the spine. The beat and roar of the heart are gone. Like a sacred hidden river my life force flows in the gorge of the spine. I enter a dim corridor through the door of the spiritual eye, and speed on until at last the river of my life flows into the ocean of Life and loses itself in bliss.
Magnetize Brain Cells With Kriya Yoga
Your body is made up of 27,000,000,000,000 cells. Every cell is like an intelligent being.* You have to educate the dormant intelligence in each cell in order to know all there is to know in this world. But you have never trained those cells. That is why you are all the time full of melancholia and passing fancies, and suffering from lack of understanding.
The greater method of mental and spiritual progress (Kriya Yoga) is to magnetize the cells by sending life current around the brain and spine, thereby securing the evolutionary advancement of one year’s healthful, harmonious living. Twenty minutes of this practice daily will greatly refine your mentality. When you have revitalized the brain cells, when the divine magnetism touches them, every cerebral cell becomes a vibrant brain; and you will find within yourself myriads of awakened brains ready to grasp every vestige of knowledge. With these awakened brains, the multitude of cellular mentalities in the body will awake and all things will be apprehended by you. You will study the vast book of Nature and Truth with twenty-seven thousand billion awakened and spiritualized microscopic brains and mentalities. Why be satisfied in half-educating a small part of your brain only?
*Decades after Paramahansa Yogananda gave this lecture, biologists identified the DNA molecule that exists in the nucleus of every cell. Experimentation has proved that present in every individual cell is the information and intelligence to grow an entire new body and brain.

Daily Yogananda Quotes, Affirmations, & Photos:
I’m all for rational thinking, but both kids and adults would benefit from more magical thinking. The focus on certainty, clear definitions, and test scores strips nuance from our experience of the world. When we devalue the arts and humanities, we prioritize quantitative ways of experiencing the world over qualitative ways. We increasingly eliminate the education in rigorous imagination. We forget that poiesis and metaphor provides children with the skill to use rational thinking in outside-the-box ways.
