I really enjoy the movie “The Matrix” because Neo has this inexplicable intuition about his reality: something he can’t quite articulate. It’s not quite right. He feels alienated in a world that should be good. 744 more words
Yoga teaches that the modern addiction to sensual experience (everything from compulsive gambling to excessive TV watching) is a desperate and futile attempt to fill our basic emptiness. And it is the law of diminishing returns: the more we repeat these actions, the more extreme they will likely become so we can really get 'high' each time. But yoga also teaches that this emptiness can only be accepted, through meditation, and made into a dwelling for the Divine (or God, if you will). Thus meditation frees us from slavery to our senses and opens us to communion with God. In some translations, the words of Jesus are translated, "the Kingdom of Heaven is within you." Or, "I will put my spirit within you."
