What does Yoga mean?

Hey there Beautiful Souls;

Yoga means the union of spirit, mind and body, according to the texts of the Bhagavad-Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

This philosophy of life teaches us that, through meditation, physical practice (what is known asanas), self-knowledge, service to others and devotion to God, we can achieve this union that is within each one of us, but that as we grow up it erodes, due to the experiences we face in life.

The United Nations decreed June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, a practice that began in India more than 5,000 years ago, and is currently performed on all continents.

Yoga continues to expand and fashion in the West, at a level that in 2016 alone in the United States it moved $ 16,000 in the industry related to classes, clothing, equipment and workshops, according to a study published by the Yoga Journal and the Yoga Alliance organization in 2020.

Likewise, the number of followers in the country went from 20.4 million to 36.7 million from 2012 to 2016, the research highlighted.

Yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, weight, social class, or religion. You just need to have the willingness and desire to learn, breathe and a mat. This is a unique process where each person must be attentive to the limitations of their own body without getting discouraged, in addition to being patient with poses, since everything is progressive.

β€œIn the darkness you are light.”

I offer you peace.” I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the highest source. I salute that source in you let us work together for unity and love. – Gandhi

Inhale God approaches you. Hold the inhalation and God remains with you. Exhale and you approach God. Hold the exhalation and surrender to God.

The best thing you can do when you wake up in the morning is to focus on gratitude. That breath you are taking could be the last of someone in any part of the world.

Ask yourself;

Who am I?

What do I want during this life?

What is my life purpose?

Who am I grateful to?

I assure you that will have your attention concerned, because as simple as those questions sounds; our attention is mainly focused on what the world is doing right or wrong.

If we spend time knowing ourselves more, and what can we do to make this world better, we would not have enough energy and time to focus on those who are missing the mark.

Last but not least;

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the insight right, the outside will fall into place.

-Eckhart Tolle

 

With love and always from the light πŸ™πŸ»

Breath is living…

  Today… 

I can Breathe, I am grateful for my breath and to be able to live.

I close the door to the past, open the door to the future, take a deep breath, and step on through and start a new chapter in my life.

Remember that maybe is not always about trying to fix something broken.

May be is about starting over and creating something better.

We are accountable for everything that happens into our lives, we take the amount of pain we accept. Is always our choice to take it or let it go. 

There comes a day when you realize that turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.

Don’t be afraid to change, it always leads you to a new beginning.

You know…

Suddenly you just know, that is time to start something new and trust the magic of Beginnings.



with love and light…
