If I Told You I Love You, Would You Hate Me?

LOVE

We all need it.

By the way, this is an exercise in random thinking…

Yoga is…

Union. Yes, that’s what it literally means from the Sanskrit.

[Yoga is a spiritual practice to find Union with God, or the divine.]

Practice the Asanas (physical postures) all you want, but it is nothing without the other 7 limbs.

Release any animosity you have for others. No reason to bear that burden.

Once again, this is an exercise in randomness.

If I told you I love you, would you hate me?

Only Love can conquer Hate. Hate will only stir up more Hate.

Hate is like kicking the bee hive.

By the way, don’t let your happiness be dependent on any thing, person or place.

Learn to be Happy on your own. That is the ultimate goal.

To do that you have to quiet the mind.

You have to quiet the internal mind in order to [achieve] the eternal bliss.

“All You Need Is Love” …that could be your mantra.

The yoga postures exist to prepare the mind for meditation.

The breath is key to Yoga.

Without our breath we would cease to exist.

So, breath (and the control of it) is key.

Slow. Deep. Breathing.

People so under-estimate the breathe.

We take it for granted.

Until we are out of breathe.

We can tune into our inner nature once we control the breathe.

Begin the practice.
