The Mat S6 E6 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1-3 by Kat of JYL

Standard

Dear Friends,

Patanjali says “Experience over many years has convinced me that, if we really repose our trust in God, and ask nothing for ourselves, he will supply all of our needs.”

The context of Sutra 1-3 teaches us that by having a calm mind, we can calm opposition in our lives. When we don’t allow a calm mind to take precedent, we disarm the calmness of our mind.

So, what this said to me personally is that by first trusting in God for your outcome in all things, Secondly, by being calm in your mannerism when dealing with people and situations all of your

needs will be met. Not only that they will be met while you find “tranquility”.  I know this one is difficult to wrap your head around at first, it seems almost too much, this is where faith is built.

As the book reminds us, this aphorism of Patanjali, therefore, should be taken not only as a promise of reward but as counsel for the right attitude to hold under any circumstance.

Namaste,

Kat
