Q: I am a new member of this group. I am a person always having faith in human power. I noted that yoga is the base for all techniques such as hypnotism, mesmerism, telepathy, etc, but I don’t know the exact differences between these things, may I have an opportunity to know the answer?

A: The greatest of all human power is the divine within. Yoga is for joining (union) with and becoming that. The first priority in yoga is union with God within us.

Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God, and all things will be added to you.”

The powers you mention are of the subconscious mind, not very significant in relation to the pure bliss consciousness of our divinity, which lies beyond the subconscious mind and is its source. If you are interested in powers as approached in the lessons, do a word search on “samyama.” It is an integrated approach to powers, aimed first at expanding our deepest inner pure bliss consciousness, and then all the rest comes up as a byproduct of that expansion to enlightenment. This is the correct approach to human power – seeking the kingdom of God first, and then all else is added…

Once you have checked out samyama, start at the beginning of the lessons to begin to unfold your full divine power with deep meditation, spinal breathing, and many other means, assembled into powerful daily practice in building block fashion.

I wish you all success on your chosen path.

The guru is in you.
