The Christ Mass Ritual of the Catholic Church seems rather bland to me now after Kundalini breath of fire meditation. A recent Jackie Onassis documentary had a shot of Caroline and JFK, Jr. genuflecting and making the sign of the cross at graveside and this ritual of my childhood religion seems so alien to me now. The empty mass ritual of Christmas is bleak and unsatisfying compared to meditating upon Christ Consciousness in the desert. The lights and decorations are beautiful and pleasing to the eye, but the ritual celebrations and gift giving seem so shallow to me. What is the real reason for the gift giving? What is the real gift if not the gift of pure consciousness unfettered by the machinations of the mind of man? I have my own private Christmas now that my parents are gone. My small circle of friends orbits around the dwindling large circle as the years and the people pass on. I am grateful for each and every second of my life.
On December 26, 2014, I died of a heart attack and then received the gift of life thanks to the miracle of modern medicine. All I want for Christmas is to breath. Breathing is a really big deal for me. I love breathing fully and deeply.
Ritual of Light
I celebrate the lengthening of the days and the coming of the light of the sun and the light of consciousness. Practicing higher consciousness does not have the same mass appeal as sports or dancing, but it serves me better in the long run. Kundalini yogis practice group meditation instead of group competition. Kundalini yoga mediation is hard work. I’m in Palm Springs taking a much needed break from yoga for Christmas. My right foot is sore from sitting in so-called easy pose. Kundalini yoga meditation is hard work. I’m having a blast just breathing in and out in the desert.
