Claim the Ability to Choose

Living in the world means a life full of relationships, with people but also with the objects of the world and the thoughts in the mind. Living in the world means a life full of changes, which occur because of the appearance of time, space and causation. Living in the world means a life full of opportunities and choices, which means dealing with wishes, wants and desires.

Tripurashakti

Tripurashakti‘Living in the world, but at the same time not being of the world’ means playing with and mastering these things, all at the same time, plus gradually growing in non-attachment (vairagya) towards the world and all that it includes. When non-attachment has expanded so much that you are able to set aside everything (for a while), you’ll rest in your True Nature. This means that Yoga (Union) has happened.

The Future of Yoga Teaching

Yoga was first taught in ancient times by a Master passing on its numerous techniques and complex philosophy to one student at a time. In modern-day yoga classes of 60 students or more, one-to-one teaching may appear a luxury. But Mark Breadner believes that the future of yoga teaching is better qualified, more authentic yoga teachers specialising in niche markets, and one-to-one yoga coaching.

My Guiding Lights

By | Articles | No Comments

You need an external Guru or teacher to help guide you towards your inner Guru, which will always lead you in the right direction. I’m fortunate to have had several inspiring Gurus on my path.

All life is an expression of energy, an expression of the underlying unity of all. We as human beings are an energetic system, and when we’re flowing we feel good. We feel connected, on purpose, and we feel that there’s a deep knowing guiding us in the right direction. When we don’t flow, we feel a sense of disconnection – a cutting off from the source. In yoga this is called avidya, or ignorance of our ESSENTIAL NATURE, which is unbounded consciousness. This underlying flow state is known as Samadhi.
