Dear Students and Friends,
There are things that we can’t understand that will happen in our lifetime. Things that make us shake our heads in disbelief. They just don’t add up, don’t make sense to us. They leave us feeling perplexed when they happen. Sometimes, often they make us angry,sad,confused and raise our blood pressure.
You can go your entire lifetime without making heads or tails of certain incidents that occur or you can try to figure them all out either way you will exhaust yourself in some type of chase whether it be the “not knowing” or worse yet having to cope with why the incident occurred in the first place. Not to mention dealing with the complexity of what it entails.
In yoga practice we are force to go “within” and often it will dredge up the past on a process towards healing. If you want to reach enlightenment you need to also first be prepared to open the large envelope of your life and explore the contents. Thus meditate…
Meditation is a powerful science that can help us put aside thoughts that weigh us down, you know , the ones that create stress and illness in our body. You need to develop a relationship with your mind.
This will eventually allow you to be in charge of your thoughts on a much higher level working this into your daily practice as a yogi.
This will help you to find peace within yourself and with those around you. This will bring your body into stillness. Regular yogis practicing meditation have shown increased activity in their left pre-frontal cortex, which is the area associated with happiness. Recent studies have proven just that with 11 minutes of meditation daily you can improve your short term memory and cognitive functions reducing your stress level and fatigue.
Put your well-being at the forefront of your priorities this summer and join me in a commitment to study a path towards better health with our Zen study. Enjoy the journey that is what it is truly all about!
