In his classic work the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali describes yoga as โ€œthe progressive quieting of the fluctuations of the mind. Through dedicated practice and the cultivation of detachment, we will stop identifying with the thoughts, feelings, and sensations that can cause us so much emotional pain ; and we will open to an experience of our true self. Although we all have a tendency to identify ourselves with the external aspects of our lives, yoga encourages us to go deeper into our being and find the inner place that is beyond temporary anchors. This is the source of all energy and creativity in life.

Derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, Yoga means union of the individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Yoga is a 5000-year-old Indian body of knowledge. Though many think of yoga only as a physical exercise where people twist, turn, stretch, and breathe in the most complex ways, these are actually only the most superficial aspect of this profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul. The science of Yoga imbibes the complete essence of the Way of Life.

Yoga, is the union of the individual soul with the Supreme Soul. Just as camphor melts and becomes one with the fire; just as a drop of water when it is thrown into the ocean, becomes one with the ocean, the individual soul, when it is purified, when it is freed from lust, greed, hatred and egoism, when it becomes Satvic, becomes one with the Supreme Soul.
As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, โ€œYoga is not just exercise and asanas. It is the emotional integration and spiritual elevation with a touch of mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something beyond all imagination.โ€ The ultimate goal of Yoga is moksha (liberation), although the exact definition of what form this takes depends on the philosophical or theological system with which it is conjugated. โœจ๐Ÿ•‰๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ•‰โœจ #yogalove

Good morning world! ๐ŸŒ
Being in total love and harmony doesn't necessarily mean that there is only positive feelings all the time. I am so sensitiv these days and mostly in the evening time everything feels very empty. Stuck in between the highest and lowest feelings. Asking myself for what we are doing all this. Why all this drama about death and life. For what reason are we here? Why being scared of something that will arrive all of us? Where will we be then? What will we be? Is this all just a big illusion? And why are we even fighting with each other? About other opinions and lives? Why can't we be happy and in harmony with each other? Why do we have to always compare and judge? Is this all making anyone happy? Isn't happiness the thing we all are looking for? So why tell someone who is totally fine and integer with what happened? Why say: oh why do you feel so great? You are just lucky! I mean where is the sense? Does it make myself feel happy to see someone unhappy? My and Benni's mother yesterday explained that I will never find my answer if I search outside and I know they are right.
Today I feel blessed. My reason why I am here got clearer. I just have to change my focus a tiny little bit. Because you all are there. So much love โค๏ธso much support and so many conscious people who are watching us. I feel it more then ever. Thank you all โค (Sandy)

Let there be a higher degree of consciousness. Build your higher faculties and increase your awareness. When that happens, everything will begin to change. #BobProctor #Awareness #Reason #Will #Intuition #Memory #Perception #Imagination #HigherFaculties

I'm scared, even though there's nothing tangible to fear. I feel alone, despite being surround by family and friends. I can't feel, even though there's a million sensations I should be experiencing. I want to die, even though I have every reason to live. The reason most therapies don't work is because they are oriented towards thinking away our disease, which is impossible. More friends doesn't make us feel less alone. Thinking of how much we have doesn't numb the pain. Knowing we are theoretically safe doesn't make us any less anxious. Therapy must operate within the context of the reality of the permanency of our illness. Solutions have to focus not on thinking away our disease, but on learning how best to manage it โค๏ธ#mentalhealth #awareness #noshame #nostigma #fitness #exercise #diet #nutrition #shredded #inkedmen #tattoo #photographer #photography #fitspo #fitfam #aesthetic #muscle #shirtless #model #style #underwear #clothing #healthyliving #culinary #bodybuilder

Today is #WorldWaterDay : an important reminder that we need to treat and reuse wastewater. Satellites like Sentinel-2 provide key information on water quality. In this Sentinel-2 image, we can see black plumes of water pollution seeping into the Laguna de Bay in the #philippines .

The struggle behind head stand practice. For the last few months I've been working hard at building my core, back and shoulder muscles so eventually I can combine it all into a beautiful headstand that lasts more than few seconds, and ultimately off the wall hand stand is the goal! There is so much that goes into this, it's like the ultimate form of mind-body meditation composition. The focus is not only on your form but your still mind, as you find balance and stability in both aspects. The journey continues... .
