Yoga this Week – January 27, 2013

The winds of grace are blowing all the time. You have only to raise your sail. –Sri Ramakrishna

Anja Chakra located in between the eyebrows often referred to as the Third Eye. When this chakra opens it is like a gateway allowing divine wisdom to enter our minds. Like the wind it is always there waiting, all you have to do is allow it to flow.
The symbol of OM in the center of the chakra represents the unleased energy of the Kundulini Snake rising upward. The crescent moon of feminine receptivity embraces the circle above it. This circle is a golden dot which is the essence of spiritual energy. It represents being in your center. When we chant the mantra “OM” we are embracing all of this universal divine energy, OM brings the ego self into union with the spirit self.
When the the ego realizes that the fulfillment of its highest dreams is only to be found through merging with the Higher Self, the false masks the ego has created fall away and who you thought you were or who you thought you ought to be lose their grip. Suddenly you let go and your true self shines forth.  So Hum,  ” I am what I am” There is no guilt, no need for illusion or pretense. You are totally in the present and you realize that  the you you have been seeking has been  there all along.

Verse 15  

The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.
They were careful as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?

The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things

 
 
Good Morning dearest yoga students,
 
This verse from the Tao Te Ching challenges us to live an unhurried life.  To be careful, alert, courteous, fluid, shapable, receptive and clear.  It asks us to be present and aware of our actions and reactions but to be open to what the flow of life is offering us.  To “remain unmoving till the right action arises” is not easy by any means.  Our media driven society is often targeting our fears and prompts us to do more, be more, work harder in order to acheive, be fullfilled, be happy.  The Tao offers us another way.  To become part of the flow of life, not to be stagnant or uninvolved, but to be still enough so that life simply is living moment to moment, letting go of past and future to find our own calm center.
 
 
When we work to become empty of expectation,  life presents us with the opportunities we need; resources magically appear,  ideas become realities and coincidences become miracles not by paniky pushing, but by becoming still enough so that you flow with the tide of life’s events.  Our dreams and desires rarely materialize exactly how and when we plan but if we open to all things that our life presents, one day we wake up and we are living our dreams.  All we have ever hoped for is right there in front of us.  Try and get quiet for a few minutes right now and meditate on all the things the divine plan has brought into your life.  Allow peace and serentity to flow in with your breath and let go of striving and expectation as you exhale. Let your entire being rest in the light of gratitude for everything that is flowing in and through you on this day feeling as “receptive as a valley and clear as a glass of water”.
