    If with a word Jesus calmed the sea how come he didn’t “speak” healing and wholeness to the entire earth? It seems to me that if he had been God and that he had the Divine power over nature he surely could have “redeemed” everything with a simple word. Furthermore, why will he need to make another trip back here to set things right? Was there something wrong or incomplete about his first “visit?” It seems to me that if Jesus were a god that he wasn’t a very powerful one.

    I’ve watched this many times, months ago…for some reason re-watching this brought a surge of beautiful emotion & a few tears to my eyes. Specifically the part talking about “Zen, the state of not having the voice talking to yourself” ect. The reason is, that state is how I live now, well at least more and more so everyday….and it’s truly beautiful…peaceful… mysteriously loving…and unexplainable in a good way….just pure aliveness of life…as your true self… Blessings to all of you!

    I can’t seem to get past the opening line. When I find deception in the beginning, it is very hard to trust, or care of the direction or intent of the rest.

    The claim that Jesus was referring to Yoga is beyond laughable, it is sad.

    For Jesus meant that though he knew his burden [or load], which he carried was great; it was just, and true. Therefor, in no way was it even a question of difficulty, or struggle. It was simply right, and thereby the easiest thing he could allow himself to do.

  8. camiller3754 says:

    The word “yoke” is believed to derive from Proto-Indo-European *yugóm (yoke), from verb *yeug- (join, unite). This root has descendants in almost all known Indo-European languages including German Joch, Latin iugum, Ancient Greek ????? (zygon), Sanskrit ??? (yugá), Hittite ???????????? (iúkan), Old Church Slavonic ??? (igo), Lithuanian jungas, Old Irish cuing, Romanian jug, etc.
    A yoke is a wooden beam which is used between a pair of oxen to allow them to pull a load.

    Other than the one line i refer to below I love it. 😛 Thanks. ;]

  10. Sensorium19 says:

    In regard to your last paragraph. In a rather complicated way I think that is what Alan was saying. If we take yoga to mean union, and in the sense we are talking about, union with the universe, or god, then it is perhaps not unreasonable to say that Jesus’ yoke was part of his union with god.

    Thank you for this.

  12. owtlawstar says:

    But that’s exactly what he’s saying. Besides even though Jesus knew it was just and true, there were definitely strugless along his way. with out going into details, think about the Garden of Gethsemane. Im not disagreeing with you or the video, I just wanted to point out that imo he did struggle at times.That’s the beauty of it… he proved that it is within all of us to be like him, because he could have failed or faltered, but he did not… not even when he was tempted..

    Watts is actually correct here, Yoke refers to “Union.” The actual line from Matthew is “My yoke is easy and my burden
    is light.” Two parts: yoke AND burden.

    The yoke is a frame used for harnessing oxen together. Not the burden itself. It represents a coupling something that binds or unites, (such as a marriage vow). Figuratively, it has to do
    with servitude a law or an obligation. We are yoked (or Yoga’d) to the
    Lord, but it is neither a hard nor unpleasant yoke (yoga).

  15. camiller3754 says:

    I like the video and Watts more now, having some time passed.

    Yoke.. Yoga.. it’s all good :]

  16. xsimidv8 says:

    The more I search and seek for answers from other philosophers such as Tolle, Gurdjieff, Krishamurti, S.Suzuki or P. Nithyananda, the more I gravitate back to the teachings of Watts, precisely because of beautiful posts such as this one.

  17. m420james says:

    its to me, not about yoking to anything or any principle, or any religion or religious deity, but letting self be yoked to which is between your thoughts rather then any thought itself like a religion philosophy or deity or idea.
    just that tao in-between the thoughts, that which isnt any picture you have in your head but what this head of ours exist in, upon and with
    but this is just my concept not yours

  18. JosephIbrahim88 says:

    is that the braveheart theme in the background? awesome choice

  19. litebearer777 says:

    yeah. the stillness of being which exists between thought. absence of thought. the place of no effort or will, oneness. the striving to contact a being would be effort interrupting the stillness where all exists.?

  20. qwatae says:

    Does anyone know the name of the lecture this segment was taken from? I would very much like to find it, thanks..

  21. qwatae says:


    Nevermind I found it.. its called “Intellectual Yoga” for anyone else wondering.

  22. claymanlucas says:

  23. moulingalette says:

    @JosephIbrahim88 I was thinking it’s lord of the rings but it could be braveheart. I’m not sure.
