How to Let the Power of the Universe Move Through You

At the climax of the movie Star Wars: A New Hope, the Death Star was poised to destroy the planet where the Rebellion was based. A fleet of rebel fighter spaceships approached it on a one-chance-in-a-million mission to stop it. They were so small and so outgunned in comparison to the Death Star, it was like a tiny swarm of insects trying to halt a massive boulder. One by one, the rebels were shot down until only Luke Skywalker remained—pursued by his nemesis, Darth Vader himself. What Luke did next illustrates the true potential of co-creation.

We are blessed as human beings with the profound gift of co-creation, allowing us to tap into something much greater than our limited selves. As interconnected beings within a vast and intelligent whole, we naturally live, think, breathe and move in a state of co-creation with everything around us. The question is, what kind of co-creation are we choosing? Is it in positive possibilities, orienting us to joy and unconditional love? Is it in impossibilities, dragging us down in undertow?

The answer is not always black and white. Most of us are not living at either of the extremes of impossibilities and positive possibilities, but at some point on the continuum between them. You are likely reading this because you are interested in co-creation in the positive possibilities. But even when we show up with good intentions, there may be more to refine. The extent to which we co-create in the positive possibilities is an evolutionary process. So we must look at the range of co-creation experiences and consider where we are along the continuum.

Luke Skywalker and his fellow pilots were on the positive possibilities side of the co-creation continuum when they chose with tremendous courage to fly their ships to the Death Star in search of its one small vulnerable point. They were co-creating with the laws of the Rebellion and choosing to serve a greater good, above their own personal comforts. Though the odds of success seemed impossibly small, the pilots were willing to give it their very best with all of their hearts. They trusted their skills, courage and belief in the greater good.

But after Luke heard the voice of his teacher, Obi-Wan Kenobi, tell him to “use the Force”, he went much further into positive possibilities. He surrendered to a force more powerful than his personal will. Luke was not passively taking orders from his teacher and guide. His act of surrender embodied supreme courage and profound wisdom. The switch in his perception was not something that happened to him, but a conscious choice of his own. When he turned off his targeting computer to trust instead a oneness with the moment, he began to co-create with the greatest force we have available to us, that of the universe itself. He chose to calibrate his beliefs to match the loving presence and power of life-force energy. Then, through profound openness and inner stillness, the impulse to fire arose within him at the perfect moment. His single shot put an end to the Death Star. By emptying himself to receive the compassionate wisdom of the universe, Luke was a channel for light that enveloped evil. By becoming nothing, he became a hero.

We can also see the continuum of co-creation in the groundbreaking film, The Matrix. On the extreme impossibilities end are those who choose to violently keep people unconscious prisoners of the Matrix. In the middle are those who wake up to the Matrix and realize there is another way. Like the Star Wars rebel pilots persevering against all odds, the Matrix rebels show tremendous courage. Yet, they are still willfully driven, and their egos block them from their true potential. But at the other end of the spectrum is that epic moment when Neo, the film’s protagonist, returns from seeming death and stands up, realizing that the bullets fired at him were illusions. They were projections of his mind, part of the Matrix, designed to keep him afraid, running and oppressed. The enemy agents fire again. But In the face of Neo’s calm awareness, the bullets literally come to a halt in midair. As Neo picks one out of the air and examines it, they all fall harmlessly to the ground. In that moment, Neo has chosen to surrender to something more powerful than what his limited senses provide. Similar to Luke Skywalker, Neo empties himself to co-create with a greater reality. He transcends the limitations of duality and maximally serves the world.

Next week, we will explore the full range of co-creation’s possibilities, from the most intense impossibilities of suffering to the most exquisite positive possibilities of bliss.

WHY YOGA IN THE NIGHTCLUB

I am often asked what inspired me to bring yogic expression into the club scene. I answer easily. Yoga In the Nightclub is a natural expression of who I am as a musical artist and dedicated yogini. Yoga is not a physical practice but a way of life. It is about learning to be present in all one does, to see the divine here, now, in this moment. As such, yoga is everywhere. It is about feeling connected to something much greater than our limited ego or will. It is about being in service to life, feeling interconnected to that very life force. Yoga In The Nightclub is a celebration of life and a reminder that we can find awakened presence everywhere.

Yoga in the West is mostly known as a series of bendy physical exercises. Yet there is much more to it than fitness. Yoga’s systematic breath and body exercises, designed to clear the subtle channels in our energy system, prepare us for meditation, through which we may experience a life inspired by our interconnected, multidimensional true nature. Our body, that once was seen as “mine”, is no longer our identity, but a gift on loan from the divine. We care for it, but we are not attached to it. The practice of yoga offers us the opportunity to experience the transmutation of matter into pure light, embody the multidimensional and rest in the eternal.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, is just one of many aspects of yoga, which range from selfless service to astrology and prayer. The Sanskrit word “yoga” most simply translates to “union”, implying that the practice of any yoga will bring together our perceived sense of separateness. As a whole, yoga is an ancient science of life. It is a practical method of shedding excess and bringing us back from the self-delusion of separation from the divine so that we may realize our inherent interconnection to and ultimate oneness with it.

As we begin to understand that yoga is everywhere, we come to see how we are all connected in vast ways far beyond the limitations of our personal will and ego. What I do affects you, and vice versa. We are one earth family. At the heart of it all, we share the same heartbeat. Breathe to be. We are one.

AWAKENED LIVING

When we are open, life blossoms, just as a flower opens to welcome the morning sun.  We see that the sun, though it is millions of light years away, has a tender yet powerful relationship with the flower, as do the rain and the clouds. From this perspective we see that we are part of the whole. Life is a symphonic masterpiece with which, when we are open, we are completely resonant.

As we come to understand our oneness, we can revel in it with wonder and joy. We can consider in awe how immense it all is. We can let go of the idea that an illusory, isolated sense of self could possibly be in control, and open to an exquisite unfolding of life in absolute perfection. Our actions become not about “me” but about the whole. Each moment is integrated within the whole. No one decision is separate.

When we begin to see that each decision we make affects not just ourselves but everyone and everything on the planet, we act with more compassion. When we have more compassion, we realize the impact of our actions and we naturally want less and practice more kindness. As stewards of the Earth, we each are called to learn to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet. We all breathe the same air and live on the same living organism, our planet. Varied in race and creed, we are all one family, children of the same mother, the planet Earth.

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GRACE

In each moment, there is infinite grace. By becoming more conscious as we practice yoga on the mat, at work, at play or in the nightclub, we let go of the unnecessary and develop greater internal spaciousness which blooms throughout our lives. In this space new life and possibilities arise.

As we rest our awareness on the simple purity and grace of the breath, we realize - we are alive! We let go of wanting things from the future and the past and open to what is here and now. We feel as vast as the sky and rooted in the richness of this moment.

When we “breathe to be”, we understand our interconnection. We see that we are not the doers but a part of the whole, the same energy that is in the flowers and in the stars. We know that our essence is divine - from which we have come, to which we return.
