Yoga & Existence

 

Guiding Light

 

  •     Yoga is a route that helps us to become acquainted
         with ourselves through self-awareness.
  •      It creates union between body, mind and spirit.
  •      It creates balance and levelheadedness to live
         in peace and harmony.
  •      It is a science of the mind and body.

 

What people say is always ambiguous.
Integrity can only be proved by one’s actions.
Talk without actions is empty talk .

Tree-pose

 

  •     Stand straight with your weight equally on both feet.

        the foot onto the inner right thigh.
  •     Raise the hands to prayer position at the heart centre.

The Tree Pose,
Improves balance,

Strengthens the legs,
Opens the chest,
Focuses the mind.

He who undestands himself gains mastery of
his own life and future.
The passageway towards this awsome goal is;
firstly self-knowledge, achieved by observing
ourselves consciously and get to know exactly
who we are.
Then comes self-discipline (mental), achieved
by making certain our thoughts and emotions
are perfectly administered;
and (physical), achieved by keeping our body
and all movements totally managed.
Finally is total self-control .

When pessimistic thoughts regarding
ourselves or other people enter our mind,
we must refuse to continue thinking and
believe in them at once.
We must immediately replace them with
pleasant and happy ones.
Happiness can only come from within .
