THOUGHTS & ARTICLES
Having established in motionless position of legs, arms, body and head in a traditional lotus posture, with breathing controlled, incessantly calming of thoughts and integration of consciousness using special methods of concentration, with the development of control over emotions and strengthening the will, with cultivation of deep silence in the farthest corners of consciousness – in other words, Zazen practice creates optimal conditions for looking into the heart consciousness and discovering in it the true nature of existence.
We therefore believe that life is a set of events that occur with our body and mind. And this is the main source of human suffering, because we can not control the outside world and become completely dependent on it. But it’s like watching a movie: I disappear in the experiences and events of the characters, but when the film ends I realize that it was all unreal, and was happening inside my Self, which was aware and perceived by these pictures. It is within our Self, in the field of awareness, that there is a real life, and not in a world of objects that change and move, capturing our attention and creating the illusion of life.
There is so heavy conditioning around sex that make human beings suffering a lot. Sex became a very important issue in the modern society. How come that this animalistic simple fucking business used by nature normally for procreation looks so valuable and complex in human life?
It is a complex topic because it includes the most of the human conditionings introduced by society and nature together. Let us try to go slow diving deeply in understanding of every statement of this article, meditating on it.
From this very moment go back into your prison, into your mind. Now open the windows and the doors and your skylight. Let misery blow through you. Don’t grab onto it. Let bliss tickle you. This too will pass. Misery and bliss are both experiences. I wonder which experience you prefer. Do not choose. Life comes, life goes, and you are also not here to decorate your prison. Make a clean break. Freedom is the highest value, even higher than love. Freedom is you watching your mind without reacting, going beyond the mind, embracing everything and beyond it but touched by nothing.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right doing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
There is a candle in your heart,
ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul,
ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
Silence is the language of god,
all else is poor translation.
Yesterday I was clever,
so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise,
so I am changing myself.
WHAT IS YOGA?
Return to your Self. Freedom. The joy of being. The totality in everything. The expansion of consciousness. Fullness of life. The infinite variety in perception of reality. A bright vision of the world. Enjoying the beauty. Simplicity and clarity.
This is Yoga!
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE?
