Principle # 1
We can understand the Field, in a larger sense, to be the energy of the world around us. It is connected to us by our intellect and emotions. This is how the Yogi controls his environment. Through his senses, which are like telephone switchboard, receiving information back through his emotional state, which is always balanced. This, if we are often angry, resentful, grumpy, nasty, cruel or negative in our thinking, this energy flows outward through the senses and floods our field with contaminated energy, and in kind, the field, magnetized by the emotions, attracts that energy bringing more of it back into our personal field of experience. The Field is the integral fabric, which simultaneously, but in order to comprehend them, it is easier to set them apart as separate components.
Time and space are not fixed in The Field. It is always evolving and expanding. We can communicate with it and receive information back from it. We can develop a personal relationship with it. In this way, Yogis are able to discern when and where it is appropriate for them to be for their own highest good, thereby, controlling their environment through discretion. How many times have you wished you had known the details of an event before hand so that you could have avoided some great unpleasantness? Again, this is an ability developed by fine turning the awareness in The Field. In The Field, what we give is what we receive, not necessarily from the same person or event because, ultimately, The Field is the source. Therefore, we will receive back from wherever The Field is able to pull in the energy to manifest what we are creating to receive. What you fund into the Field is what you receive back at some point when the energy recycles back to you and the conditions are aligned to this type of energy, either positively or negatively.
