“When experiencing this absolute true knowledge [of the reality of the present moment], all previous samskaras (patterns) are left behind and new ones are prevented from sprouting”
Yoga Sutra I.50
Hari Om dear yoga students,
The Sanskrit word, samskara, translates as a subconscious impression. Samskaras are deep seeded patterns that our mind continues to play over and over again. It is the thoughts, impressions and memories that we have acquired over our lifetimes that create conditioned responses and eventually become our habits. When we feel stuck in our lives or continue to approach situations the same way over and over again, hoping for different results, it is often due to our samskaras. Obsessions and compulsions have their root in the samskara of past conditions, but they can also produce positive tendencies, like committing to meditate or practice yoga everyday.
As we step on our mat, do our pranayama or sit on our meditation cushion, we face ourselves from the inside. The stillness within the movement of thoughts breaths or postures help to create space in between our impulses and actions. The creative art of detaching from our negative patterns allows us to make those much needed changes in our lives to flow freely and passionately in the direction we wish to go.
