Again you misunderstand my essay. I am talking about Humanity and 
their lack of understanding. I am not talking about myself here. Yes, 
they are schools of yoga and physical or hatha yoga is not 
recommended at this time for enlightenment purposes--c'est tout. And 
on up to the other yogas.

understanding that energy was God, and the knowledge to use it is 
what destroyed Atlantis. 

Enjoyed the story about Mahareshi. In the years I spent meditating I 
went to bed early and never saw a darn thing on late night TV. I have 
been meditating for over 30 years. If you want to see what I really 
think and do then go to my forum and read:
