Kriya Yoga Satsang Vasistha’s Yoga Quote

  • Your experiences are the culmination of past choices. If you don’t make different choices, what you’re experiencing will continue in one way or another. Self-effort and making different choices in the present counteract past habits, beliefs and tendencies.
  • Every moment is a choice—a choice to be fully free playing your role in the world or to be identified with your role and get trapped in the loop of suffering, birth and death. By deciding that you want to be your eternal Self, you turn your attention away from the things that rise, fall, and change and settle back into your eternal nature.
  • No power is greater than the right action in the present.
  • What is experienced inside is experienced on the outside. To improve your life, make changes internally first and then allow it to come forth on the outside.
  • Let go of the faith that you are ignorant and spiritually unaware. Build the intense faith that you are always free, serene, and whole.

Referenced verses from Vasistha’s Yoga:

Chapter 2 Verse 4

“In this world, whatever is gained is gained only by self-effort; where failure is encountered, it is seen that there has been slackness in the effort. Self-effort is of two categories: that of past births and that of this birth. The latter effectively counteracts the former. Fate is none other than self-effort of a past incarnation. There is constant conflict between these two in this incarnation, and that which is more powerful triumphs. There is no power greater than right action in the present.”

Chapter 3 Verse 24

“What is reflected in one’s consciousness shines outside also.”

Chapter 3 Verse 56

“This is a well-known truth: whatever be one’s consciousness, that one is. Things (objects or substances) come into being on account of one’s fancy (thought or idea), and one’s fancy also arises from things. Poison turns into nectar through one’s fancy (or faith); even so, an unreal object or substance becomes real when such intense faith is present. Without a cause, no effect is produced anywhere at any time, and therefore, there is no fancy or thought either.”
