Inner Experience of Truth
Swami Kriyananda | 5′:29″

In this month’s talk, “The Inner Experience of Truth,” Swami Kriyananda gives an in depth and fascinating discussion of the nature of “truth.” Weaving in aspects of his own search for truth as a young man, he shows that truth is something much deeper than mere facts, and that it can only be found by inner experience. By deepening our connection with God and raising our level of consciousness, we can all begin to experience the truth residing in our own true Self.

Key Points

Truth is not facts, is something much deeper. Truth is beauty, truth is inspiration.

It helps a great deal in the search for truth to be around like-minded people.

Truth is first an inner experience, then you bring that truth into your daily life. Eventually you find that everything is God, and that everyone is part of the Infinite One.

This universe is a dream in the consciousness of the creator.

Apply the teachings of yoga consciously to every aspect of your life.

When the mind is calm and receptive we can receive inspiration and guidance.

Concentration is the key to success.

Try to use intuition more than intellect when making decisions.

When we fall out of attunement with the Divine, when we think we are separate from God, we suffer.

If your willpower is strong you can do anything.

We tend to think of willpower as something you exert with a lot of tension, but it should be practiced with joy and willingness.

You can experiment with truth. You can try something, and if it is working well, give it more energy and try a little more
