As a birthday present to myself, I signed up for the New Life Awakening Benefactors Retreat in Carlsbad, California. I hadn’t attended a benefactors retreat in a couple of years and was longing to attend one again.
Our benefactors retreat started on a Thursday afternoon and lasted until late Friday afternoon, after which we joined the New Life Awakening Retreat. At one point, Yogiraj came down from the stage and sat down on the floor with us. As there were only twelve of us benefactors, it was a very intimate circle. Like a father reading to his children, he read us a passage from his autobiography, “Wings to Freedom.”
The passage describes the Hamsanet, Yogiraj’s mission and work. The Hamsanet is a network of rainbow light and breath that Yogiraj has developed, which connects all sincere seekers of truth on Earth. The purpose of this spiritual network is to allow people to experience a unified Consciousness where at the level of Soul Consciousness, humanity is one. Yogiraj initiates this experience when he enters into unified Consciousness (unmani avastha). Then by connecting to the seekers through their navel, heart and third eye centers, he transmutes their minds into a higher state of consciousness. By this process, Yogiraj and the seekers who are in tune with him create Earth peace.
One of my favorite parts of the general retreat was when Yogiraj led us into a meditation where we rocked our bodies slightly left and right. He said the apparent self is the self that we felt when making the rocking motion. He encouraged us to discover the permanent Self which lies behind the apparent self.
