Bede Griffiths was Andrew Harvey‘s teacher. In the above video, Father Bede explains how he awoke to a continuous experience of Love. I connect his teaching here to our practice of Savasana (Corpse Pose). With a deep enough Savasana, we let go of everything, including “Yoga.” It’s a mystic level of understanding to connect Jesus’ “Why have you forsaken me?” moment to him letting go of God. Jesus is not really forsaken by God, and God is not being forsaken by Jesus. What’s happening is the creation of mystic awareness through Vairagya (detachment). Its power depends on Love. There would be nothing to Jesus’ realization without a tremendous love of God. Likewise, at the end of each yoga practice, if we have a tremendous love of Yoga, we can practice experiencing something similar. Just as Jesus’ attachment to “God” is released and then experienced as a completely expansive, eternal realization of Love, our release of Yoga during Savasana transmogrifies all of our attachments into a compassion-filled energy.
