The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
— Albert Einstein
Hari Om dearest yoga students,
Hoping this beautiful fall morning finds you in some form of gratitude for this gift of today. The way of the yogi warrior is the way of the heart. The intuitive mind is led by the heart. Our yoga practice awakens a deeper awareness of our minds, bodies and spirits and it is in this awakening that we can begin to “feel” into our lives instead of “thinking” through our lives. Although intellectual ability is often the first to be consulted to solve problems, create plans, or learn new abilities, it is truly the intuitive mind that will always lead you down the sacred path of the heart.
Inside your heart are the yamas and niyamas.
The Five Yamas
Ahimsa : nonviolence Satya: truthfulness Asteya: nonstealing Brahmacharya: temperance Aparigraha: noncovetousness
The Five Niyamas
Saucha: cleanliness Santosha: contentment Tapas: heat; austerities Svadhyaya: study of the sacred scriptures and of one’s self Isvara pranidhana: surrender to God
To find the way, close your eyes, listen closely and find that light within you, that energy moving, that feeling tone that points the way. We are naturally pure, go deeper, your intrinsic goodness will move you towards the most ethical, loving way. Without studying a single yoga sutra, we know inside ourselves the path. Honor this gift, the sacred intuitive mind and allow your intellect to serve. For this day, allow the words of Ghandi to resonate on a deep level;
“The Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart”

I honor the place within you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace. When you are in that place in you, I am in that place in me. We are one. Namaste

Hari Om Amy, As always, thanks for sharing. Albert Einstein was really an enlightened man. Amazing that he grew up in western culture. I don’t think he had a guru, it was just inside him and he was able to tap into it, into the fountain of truth and knowledge. Today I finished the couse that I have been doing here in Spain. A bit closer to being an Ayurvedic Practitioner. I hope to get some hands on experience while in India. I am leaving in 10 days. How are you doing? Are you finding ways to increase your knowledge of yoga. I hope we can do a better seminar next time I am there. June, maybe? You know in Vrindavan I can get really nice shawl – silk and wool. I can ship from there and it costs very little. Maybe you would be interested or some of the other ladies in class. LEt me know – I can send you some photos and prices if you would like. Just and idea. I know it is hard to get beautiful shawls there and maybe for winter time? Take care. love, Kishori Date: Sun, 20 Oct 2013 13:36:10 +0000 To: firstname.lastname@example.org
