Excerpt: "Sat Yoga is a finishing school - probably the last of the finishing schools. Feminism killed off most of them, but here we have a co-ed finishing school… and yes we are here to finish off the ego but we are doing it not by destruction but by allowing it to attain its perfect form and then the ego blossoms into the soul and if we allow it the soul blossoms into pure spirit. We teach about different assemblage points here. Each assemblage point is really an opening up to love at a higher, broader, deeper level. But the essence of what we are is love at every level - even at the level of the ego, which we say “oh, the ego cannot love”, which is true in terms of divine love, but the ego is love because that’s all that is, is love. At the first assemblage point the problem is the ego’s circle of care and love does not go beyond its own self-image… it loves what is sees in the mirror and it loves others adoring gazes and saying yes etc. and it loves sensual pleasures and that kind of thing – what Freud called the ‘ideal ego’, and it doesn’t love beyond that. At the second assemblage point the thesis of the egos narcissistic love turns into the antithesis of a narcissistic hatred - anger, fury at the family, wanting to get away, but this antithesis is actually necessary… one needs to break away by hating the ones that would tie you into a small image of yourself that you have outgrown in order to find love at a higher level, and so it is inevitable that one passes through this and then at the third assemblage point feels remorse for all that hatred, envy and negativity and at that assemblage point one enters fully into the ethical dimension of life and then love begins to be channeled in a higher way…. An aesthetic dimension, an ethical dimension, and a religious dimension of life all open up at the third assemblage point and love begins to blossom, one becomes a productive citizen because one loves one world etc. etc… one loves beauty, one loves truth, one loves higher truth even then that which is about the physical plane, but still there are limitations. So one's circle of love may extend to one's nation but does it extend to those in other nations or does one still demonize people of other countries of other religions, other skin colors etc. etc.? The love is still not universal, it is not unconditional, and it’s only at the next assemblage point that love becomes universal and all are recognized as children of God…."
