He instructed her to unroll it so that he could give her the first Yoga lesson. “But, I’ll be late for school”, said Gracie. “Not so”, replied Ganesha. “You are now functioning in YogaLand time. You’ll never be late again!” Amazed at this bit of information, Gracie unfurled the yoga mat. “Before you step onto it, Gracie, you must understand its powers.” “Powers?” Gracie responded. “Yes”, said Ganesha.
“Here is Lesson One. First remember that Yoga is a great power. It harnesses not only the forces of nature, but the forces of energy in your own body and then it binds them both together with the spiritual forces of the higher realms of the great Rishis and Masters, who dwell in YogaLand. This is why it is called Yoga, the Yoke or Harness, where the mind, body and spirit are forged like three golden rivers of light that shine so brightly they can reach the outer realm of Hiranyaloka, the astral home of the Greatest Ascended Masters. You must always approach your Yoga practice with a great reverence, for in this reverence for all the good around you, you will unlock many secrets and can change the very destiny of the world. You may see only a simple Yoga mat, but in reality it is is the gateway to a fourth dimensional portal and to many wonderful places beyond. It becomes almost like a magic carpet. You must approach your Yoga mat and practice as if you were approaching the greatest treasure of the world, otherwise, your practice will not produce true Yoga results and it will remain grounded to only the mundane third dimensional reality. Remember this always. Step onto the Yoga mat by taking a deep breath and open to the wisdom of the great ones who are standing ready to help you at all times and to give you their great teachings. Imagine that at the end of each practice you are taking away a magnificant jewel, a “pearl of great price”, for that is what you will, in reality, be receiving. You will find that Yoga has the power to manipulate the energies of time and space, once you know how to unlock the secrets.
