The Yogi In Action

By definition, a Raja Yogi in one who has a mental link with the Supreme Soul, the source of all goodness. This, coupled with an understanding of the laws of action which govern the behaviour of souls, means that one does not have to renounce society in order to achieve enlightenment. Rather, the soul filled with illumination faces society directly with understanding and the compassion to serve it and to elevate it so that it.

The soul becomes elevated not by the renunciation of responsibilities or worldly duties but by a renunciation of the negativity that exists within the role being played. The Raja Yogi does not try to escape social obligations but rather purifies them through becoming filled with light, love, peace and happiness. This stage of self-awareness and God-communication imparts a subtle richness into one's life-pattern.

There are those who believe that the elevated state is beyond society and its trimmings. They fine a quiet spot in the jungle or a monastery and contemplate deeper things. There are others who are stuck in the quicksand of their problems, and believe society's renunciates to be saints. However, holiness and virtue are qualities attained in one's life situation, not in running away from it. The Raja Yogi understands that the elevated state is not merely a matter of elevated thoughts, but elevated actions for the benefit of the self and the world. We are what we do and not so much what we imagine ourselves to be. The external circumstances are merely the unfolding of what we are internally.
