"resist anything with regret, judgment or blame and your resisting your own full awakening; the embodiment of your realization of truth. Truth leaves nothing out, no one out. It includes everything and everyone and every sh*tty thing that has ever happened to you and every sh*tty person you have ever known. Everything and everyone is serving your full awakening, deny this truth and you are back in suffering:love or perish, that is the rule

Yoga is a generic name for any discipline by which one attempts to pass out of the limits of one's ordinary mental consciousness into a greater spiritual consciousness. ~ Sri Aurobindo


Evolution of consciousness is the central motive of terrestrial existence. ~ Sri Aurobindo

'Nobody wants to be in pain. Human beings want to be comfortable. Our nature is to seek comfort and avoid pain - that's human. However, when you begin to feel the pull of truth, there is no longer any possibility of avoiding the dark side.' - Jon Bernie

'If you can see where the struggle is, identify the struggle and feel the struggle, then you're home free. Bring awareness to the struggle, because the struggle is the very center of identity. Turn towards what's difficult. Bring awareness to where the resistance is. We begin to see and experience resistance more and more subtly. It becomes so subtle.' - Bernie

'Compassion is the awareness that allows whatever arises to arise. The grief, the fear, the discomfort, the wanting the discomfort to be gone. The wanting to be free! That too. Nothing is excluded. How could anything be? Awareness is infinite. It's all-encompassing.' - Bernie

"Think of a flabby person covered with layers of fat. That is what your mind can become, flabby, covered with layers of fat till it becomes too dull and lazy to think, to observe, to explore, to discover, not wanting to be disturbed or questioned into wakefulness." - Anthony DeMello

'So-called karma is generated only when we try to stop movement [of thought or emotion], when we grab on to it and try to fix it, understand it, get rid of it, organize it, whatever. But as presence, you're just the space within which the movement happens.' - Jon Bernie

'When faced with an emotionally powerful experience, our conditioning is usually to contract, to stop the feeling, and so people often have to relearn how to feel, which means learning to get out of the way and allow the movement of feeling - which can be nothing less than terrifying if it's not how you're accustomed to being. Surrendering in this way may feel like dying, in a sense, or completely losing control. But once you've gotten through it, it's an enormous relief, like taking off a tight shoe.' - Bernie

I adore this quote. Itís true that negativity, darkness, bad souls form half of the ying yang. We must accept that duality exists at His will but that itís all really just Truth/ Source/ Him.

Maya (the illusion) is a great teacher.

You just need to be a good soul to practice yoga.

Be kind and compassionate to yourself and others, practice forgiveness and hold no enmity towards others, stay away from lust anger greed attachment, envy and jealousy, laziness. Work for what you have and share some of your earnings with the less fortunate.

Practice and strengthen these qualities, be strong minded, strong willed, confident and assertive, donít believe losers and any curses(negative statements) made about you and stay true to yourself and all around you,

'The core issue might seem to be the thing you're trying to get rid of, but the real problem might be the trying to get rid of it. So the seeming problem itself isn't the real problem; the resistance to it is.' - Jon Bernie

'So ask yourself, what are you pushing away? Can you perceive in the body, kinesthetically, what you're pushing away? Or what you're trying to pull towards you, or hold onto, or understand. Bring attention to that pushing or pulling. There's your path, that's where you'll find your work laid out for you.' - Bernie

Homage to the state of great bliss!
Concerning what is called Mahamudra
All things are your own mind.
Seeing objects as external is a mistaken concept;
Like a dream, they are empty of concreteness.

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.
