Although it is important to practice the other meditation techniques I have found often that practicing kriya before any other spiritual techniques and upon awakenig is helpful. This is because the cosciousness is still interiorized  and it is easier to go into the spiritual spine and direct the consciousness up and down the shashuma. The consciousness generally becomes more scattered during the day and it is often more difficult to direct attention to the thin thread, the silver chord that brings a soothing peace and awakening bliss when the thoughts are stilled and attention is drawn to inner realms.

Upon awakening the body itself is more still having been more withdrawn into an interior realm of dreams and perhaps even dreamless sleep. As the day progresses we are more drawn into worldly activities and the senses adapt themselves to rising concerns that require their involvement. Due to the restlessness of the mind and relentless desires—that keep us trapped in these physical bodies—we are often if not usually drawn into activities,that distract us from the peace and interiorization that sleeping gives us. Having the awareness that these activities usually rob us of the moments of peace we can experience upon awakening; we begin to develop some discipline upon awakening, often realizing that the distractions that draw us away from immediately meditating upon awakening were not so important as our spiritual connection. This spiritual connection has a more productive influence on our consciousness then constant restless action and bombardment of the senses. Theses actions lead us into continued restless activities to support endless new desires which only bind us stronger to the earth plain.

Does this mean Kriya Yoga can free us from the repetitive and hardened pathway of enslavement? Activities that only bring about our suffering?

I am starting to believe something as simple as making ones bed in the morning is a great way to get into shape.  Smiley

It's extremely fascinating how breathing up and down through the spine can quicken our spiritual evolution.  Smiley

Yogananda said kriya is the airplane route to god. 1 million correct kriyas over the years can bring liberation.

The Masters explain that the seeds of karma are in the astral spine and the right environmental conditions release them. We are fortunate to have a technique that burns out the seeds of karma so they are unable to germinate.

Yes I have found that the practice of kriya was my first real step in getting out of restlessness and into meditation. Having experienced some higher stages of consciousness-from this step onwards I have found something more enticing then enslavement to the senses. This does not mean, however that I am free from suffering and dips back into sense enslavement. Rather; it means that there is no turning back now. I know what my purpose is here now and even if I take a fall I know what I must do to pick myself back up.

I am not sure what results you are looking for from making up your bed but I do know some of the results of practicing Kriya yoga.

When the time is right I may be initiated into Kriya. I believe sincerity is to be developed, overall, before that moment. By making the bed a routine I just meant practicing discipline- something I believe is needed to free ones self from unwanted behavior or, when trying to bring about a lifestyle change.

Yes the routine of doing kriya has become quite routine to me. No inspiration is necessary. I just do it like eating exercise or sleeping.  It is now part of my every day life. It came with a little light that went off in my brain and I finally recognized after some time of meditating on my own that it just wasn’t getting me anywhere and I needed help to settle my mind. At the time I remember thinking to myself; this kriya yoga is the only technique I have ever had that actually gave me a break from thinking and some blissful moments in meditation. For that I will never forget and whatever I do or however I feel or however I fall I will come back to the practice of kriya.

I know I have messed my own life up at times and to some extent the lives of others but I also have had the realization that if I come back to kriya I will be returning to where I need to be. Sometimes while witnessing life go by me the only hope for an anchor and reality check is to return to the guidance of the gurus and the methods they have given to stay in tune; in my case that is kriya yoga. I suppose the reason for that is that it showed me it is possible to be happy even though the pain of this world and the people I have met in it is ever a reminder that happiness in this reality just never lasts and is met by many disappointments.
