Welcome to ‘Lotus Blooms’ (my blog). The intent is to, over time, touch upon various concepts of the practice of Yoga through sharing. We are divine community and we can really know this through communication. I feel an auspicious beginning is to simply look at last Sunday’s Sadhana ~ which was simply divine.
Mahat vs. Citta. What are we identifying with? Is it the greatest cosmic intelligence, source of all divine flow; or has it been our individuality and sense of self? Can we shift our consciousness? How can we change that which is habitual, patterned, karmic?
Simple awareness in action. Perceptions come and perceptions go. We are constantly receiving information through the senses and then taking action (jnanandriyas, karmendriyas). However, if we can stay steady maintaining awareness we will recognize that change is always taking place and therefore not get hung up in the shifts.
With practice, maintaining the realization that beneath the ripples is always the constant ~ source energy ~ we can more easily shift our identification from the temporary to the constancy which is identification with the underlying source intelligence.
Remember, use your life well as it is a beautiful gift. Seek Moksha (liberation), not Bhoga (pleasures) and Roga (afflictions) which serve to distract.
Thank you for being. You are divine flow ~ Lotus Levin
