Wow, I'm loving this and very greatful to have jumped on it!! Being part of this group/discussion has given me alot more depth to the reading. I would not have gotten that reading it on my own. Its also a really enjoyable version so it was easy to catch up and follow along.
It was great to have the guests, giving other points of views creating even more depth to it.
Great to feel I now wouldn't mind that much reading another version :))) Just found there is a Tantric view on the BG by Douglas Brooks, that would be very interesting since Tantra (DB teaches Rajanaka Tantra) says yes to (life-affirming) desires.

If feels inspireing to you Bob, could we do this with other yogic books, like The Yoga Sutras or if theres an easy version of any of the Uphanishads ...?

Thanks for the lovely and down-to-earth article :)
I love being bhakti-full, surrender to something greater, singing, doing yoga and having my heart open. The importance of an altar or "special place" for mediation has faded as my altar is always with me, inside. Remembering that, every and any place is a special place enough for meditation. Every and anything can be considered a temporary altar. When its a way of life, no "outside" props are needed. Of course I love having my yoga/meditation-room at home, creating a shakti and shanti-filled space. But what I mean is that... my home is like that for pleasure - I dont have an altar as such at home, nor wearing a mala... nothing "outside" hinders me from being bhakti-filled in an airport, an airplane, where there is lotsa noice or if finding myself in a extreamly-cluttery/dirty space... :)

Favourite part of the 11th is the end of it, as you above stated the 11:37,38,40,55. The first part (as wriote in the last week's discussion) was to me somewhat boring.

As I understand it The Universe care alot about all of us and wants us to get and experience all that we want. Its us misunderstanding and complicating things with our fears and analyzing. The Universe is not "non-caring" when "bad things happen", instead it has the bigger view where we are all eternal and "bad things" just seem that way when you dont have the distance to it (upeksha).
Thats my understanding of it.

The description in chapt.10 (of the Blessed Lords beingness) is more of my taste than in chapt.11. Chapt.11 was to me a lil boring meanwhile chapt 10 was very enjoyable.

About chapter 10.__I love the 10.8, ending with "...by entering my state of being" - which I see as you enter your own center of being where your soul-feelings/qualities resides (and is the Universe at the same time as its your own center "within").__Also loving the description of "who/what" the blessed Lord is, starting 10.19.____will be back commenting chapt.11 :)____

For me it has been a beautiful journey from fearbased "but what if X went wrong"-thinking, to a lovebased thinking where all is and will continue to be Well. Meditation has been a extreamly efficient tool for me, making it easy to see what thoughts are hindering me or benefiting me.
I use the knowledge (as in jnana) of anatomy and biomecanics to treat my body with love (ahimsa; non-harming) as I twist, turn and bend myself into all kinds of yoga poses. But all of them (jnana, karma, bhakti, raja) are somehow incorporated in my practice and my everyday life.
Everyday is a gift and I love life. Feeling very comfy with my new mindset :)
