Ego made simple by Yogananda

“It is important, therefore, to come together physically with an uplifted consciousness. That flash generated in the astral world reflects the couple’s state of consciousness, especially as they felt during the moment of physical union.”

Paramhansa Yogananda also taught that when the flash occurs, from the sperm and ovum uniting, the new body starts to create the medulla oblongata, the seat of the “ego” in the body. He sometimes referred to the ego as the “soul identified with the body.”

Beautiful Illusions

Our bodies are so cool. Sometimes they can seem primitive, like when we feel change and pain. They are the most basic stage of life – our door to freedom. Being primal is their job – to connect us to the simplicity of everyday life. Bodies are beautiful illusions that cover up the infinity of our bright, cosmic light. And that illusion can be tailored the way we want it. Your body is not you, but a projection of yourself, capable of interacting, indulging and stunning others with every breath that you take.
