War or Peace a time to chose

War or Peace a time to choose.

Today you stand at the threshold.

Is this the time to tear apart,

or the time to mend,

the time to be silent

or the time to speak,

the time to love

or the time to hate,

the time for war,

or the time for peace.

Where do stand?

What Will You do?

How to make 2018 your best year ever

How to make 2018 your best year ever. First, sow the seeds for 2018, now in 2017 – Feed The Seed Every Day in 2018 – Reap The Reward in 2018.

Sow the seeds of everything that you want on the outside and everything you want on the inside. Sow the seeds of who you want to be in 2018. Sow the seeds now of how you want to wake up and feel every day in 2018.

Never think of what you do not have. Only think every day of what you want.

We create what we think about most.

Therefore think only what you want to have and want to be…physically and emotionally.

Start off your day thinking about what you are grateful for in your life.

Think about for a minute or two the things you are grateful for? Feel the gratitude… focus on what you have right now that you are grateful for. Feel the joy… feel the happiness.

Then think about each specific thing you want in 2018.

Think about each one till the emotions and feelings of having each one start to come alive.

See them, feel them, smell them and bring each one alive in your mind.

With the power of your emotions, you will then see it the physical.

You are energy, life is energy, things are energy.

You create what you think about.

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert Einstein

Wisdom of Trees Walt Whitman 

The Wisdom of Trees Walt Whitman. 

“When we have learned how to listen to trees,” poet Hermann Hesse wrote in his lyrical love letter to our arboreal companions“then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.” Two generations earlier, a different titan of poetic sentiment Walt Whitman extolled trees not only as a source of joy but as a source of unheralded moral wisdom and an improbable yet formidable model of what is noblest in the human character.

What is Yoga?

What is Yoga? Sanskrit definition of yoga is:

  1. Yoga, a disciplined method for attaining a goal;
  2. Yoga (/ˈjoʊɡə/;[1] Sanskrit, योगः Listen) is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India.

Yoga literally means “union” or “connection”. In Sanskrit, the word ‘‘yoga”’ is used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to connect to anything.

Conscious connection to something allows us to feel and experience that thing, person, or experience. The experience of connection is a state of yoga, a joyful and blissful, fulfilling experience. Awareness is the secret of yoga.

What is Yoga? Multiple definitions of yoga

There is no single definition of yoga. In order to experience truth through yoga, we must study its classical definitions and reflect on our own understanding of it.

If we wish to connect to the intuitive, creative part of us, and realize the eternal Self at our core, we need to consider what yoga really is. Each definition of yoga reveals part of the ocean of knowledge and experience that forms the yogic path.

What is Yoga? Many paths to yoga

There are many traditional yogic paths that facilitate connection to the highest truth and awaken our own consciousness, including tantra, mantra, laya, kundalini, bhakti, jnana, karma yoga, and so on. Each path specializes in its own techniques and methods to awaken greater awareness and connection to self and life.

Yoga practices include posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), control of subtle forces, {Nagarjuna}, attaining enlightenment. (mudra and bandha), cleansing the body-mind (shat karma), visualizations, chanting of mantras, {Nagarjuna}, attaining enlightenment.

What is Yoga? Day-to-day meaning of yoga

At its most practical level yoga is a process of becoming more aware of who we are. Yoga techniques facilitate balance and health, and unfold our dormant potential. Yoga allows us to be more aware of ourselves and feel connected.  As such, yoga is a process of self-discovery. This leads us to self-mastery and self-realization.

What is Yoga? Yoga as a science

Yoga is a science, that is, it is a body of techniques that lead us to consciously connect with ourselves and with life, the experience of yoga. As yoga is a science, there is no dogma or belief system attached to it. Yoga simply tells us to do a certain practice and then to feel the effect of that practice, e.g. if we breath slowly in a relaxed manner we will slow our heart rate; if we focus the mind we will develop mental peace and deep insight.
