Some Lessons and Wisdom from Yogaville and Teacher Training

Jai Satya Jai!  Om Guru Om.  Victory to the Light of Truth!

A “form” ations: pose what you want in the form of a question and the mind, Universal Mind even, will begin to answer it.  For example, “How does it feel to be completely, unconditionally in love with everything as it is, exactly as it is, Here & Now?”  Or, “What does it feel like to be unconditionally happy?  to flow like water? to exist in perfect health and harmony?  Even trippier…”What is it like to be both everything and nothing?  What does it feel like to be so incredibly grateful for this very moment, all of it, forever?

Laugh-a Yoga – free to laugh 🙂 Ho ho ho, ha ha ha.  Play.  Celebrate.  Very good, very good, yay!  Happy Lion wags the tail.

Breathe.  Calm, Clear, and Focus.  Connect with All.  Present Moment, Wonderful Moment.

Gratitude Always.  Gratitude is the only prayer.  Express gratitude, and feel it so deeply, as though all you ever desired has already been fulfilled.  Feel it in your heart, then experience it.

Open the heart.  Lead with the heart.  Sing in gratitude from the heart.

“Is it for the tongue or for the body?”  If it’s for the body, it’s okay.  Or – a more Sivananda-esque approach: “Will this bring me energy or disease?”

Om Guru Om.

Nothing inherently has meaning.  We give it meaning.  So might as well give it meaning that empowers you, fills you with Light and Love and Peace and Joy 🙂

Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu: The entire universe if filled with Peace and Joy, Love and Light, and I am so grateful for all of it 🙂

Nadi Sudi to cultivate virtue: breathe in what you desire, release any and all that does not serve you.

Most important thing about eating: enjoy it.  Eat when peaceful, serene.  Relax and calm the body and mind and you will digest the food much better.

Conserve Prana.  Speaking, eating, moving: all uses prana.  On fast days, you conserve prana from not eating and allow the prana to heal the body.  Good to fast from words, too, as it conserves Prana.  Prana is the life force that flows through all.  We can live without breath, such as when we hold our breath, but we cannot live without prana.

Om Guru Om.  Jai Satya Jai!

Row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream!  “We are getting pretty good at dreaming!  This dream rocks.”

Health is our birth right, and health implies happiness, lightness, ease.  Live a useful life.  Radiate universal love.

Truth is one, paths are many.  Bring the faiths together, all the sciences, and let’s realize our unity.

The Guru is in All.  Always with you.  Spirit. Light.  Love.  Consciousness.  See the Guru in All.

Pratyahara: sense control.  Tame the tongue.  See the Beauty.  Hear the Harmony.  Experience the Ocean of Bliss, Here & Now – Ananda.

What is the most I can do, right now?  Often times the answer might be to simply smile and breathe.  Breathe in the Cosmic Consciousness and exhale the Peace for One and All.

Inquire, “Who am I?” know the self, and be free!

Do it Now!  Do it Now!  Do it Now!

Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize.

Rama Krishna to a disciple: “Do whatever you like – gamble, sleep with women, drink alcohol – but before you do it, dedicate the act to me.”  The disciple could not bring himself to dedicate those acts to Rama Krishna, and sooned dropped those lesser habits.

If you keep putting in the good, the bad will come out naturally.  Like adding oil to a car – the bad just falls out.

Practice and Non-attachment.  The consciousness of self-mastery that is free from craving of objects seen or heard.  Practice requires constant effort, without break, performed in all earnestness.

If you want something – DO IT EVERY DAY!  It’s just that simple.  Practice, practice, practice.  Focus on what you want to create.

Discipline yields freedom.

Heaven on Earth is very real.  Heaven is Here & Now.  It’s just a matter of remembering who you really are, connecting with the True Self, letting go and transcending 🙂

” Get over it!  You are that.  You are that.  You’re God.  Get over it.  ”

Connect with the energy of the Realized Masters: raise your consciousness by even just thinking about them.  Remember them.  They are in you and in All.

God is like Mr. Happy.

I am grateful for this moment!!!! For Here…and Now 🙂

Who am I?  Namaste.  The Divinity in me acknowledges, smiles at, and adores the Divinity  in you 🙂  Live this Truth.  (Would you like to live in this reality?)

The Light of Truth overcomes All.

You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.

Feel in your heart and realize.

Any question you can ask, the answer is Within.

Experience the Peace Within.  This is Your True Self.

Believe.
