#Yoga Today ~ #Karma ~ Don’t Fall into D-GAP


 
 
 
 
 
 
According to karma, our true purpose in life is to return to a state of balance, love, happiness, and abundance, while removing our negative karma. If you choose to break the pattern of your karma you will free your energy to explore the rest of the universe and through your wisdom you will realize that you now can do as you choose rather than being compelled by karma.

 

The root of all karma is seeded in the four great passions. One of these passions is more intense in your life than the others; but they all appear at one time or another. The four great passions which are the major causes of all of life’s problems are:

1.     Deceit

2.     Greed

3.     Anger

4.     Pride

These states, which lack honesty, tolerance, unselfishness and humility, are the triggering mechanisms for all karma. They also include a lack sincerity, fairness, joy, admiration, detachment and courage. These give rise to prejudice, sorrow, disloyalty, fear, disgust and cruel joking which will activate karma and get us into trouble.  These are driven by the ego and not the soul.

 

 

Although the soul has an infinite ability for creativity it only has three central activities: thinking, speaking, doing. These three activities create our karma and all karma then seeks expression through your thoughts, words and deeds.

Remember, to lighten or soften our karma (aura) we need to manifest certain actions and inhibit others. The practice of yoga (physical) helps us to learn to become motionless and balanced without losing consciousness. This is how we annihilate karma, being balanced and serene while holding onto awareness. This is known as our witnessing consciousness; the observing principle of life.  Let’s get started

 

The soul has infinite ability for creativity but can only express itself through our thoughts, words and deeds. Likewise the ego expresses itself through our thoughts words and deeds. Awareness - becoming the witness consciousness allows us to discern whether the ego is directing our life or we are allowing the soul to render us motionless and balanced; for it is here we learn to let go, detach, remove deceit, greed , anger and pride, and ultimately find peace.

#Yoga Today the Four Patterns of Negative #Karma


 
 
 
 
The first is the karma that blocks knowledge. Our knowledge of the world comes about through the five senses. When knowledge is blocked one cannot see the subtle connection between things and events. It is like the person who is emotionally cruel to their partner and cannot understand why the partner is cold.
 


Be aware.

The second is the karma that blocks feelings of joy and grief, pleasure and pain. Simply this means that you cannot separate the opposing forces of nature. We cannot remove night from day. They both exist as a reflection of the other. Every experience in life can be seen as pleasurable or painful depending upon how we interpret things. A mosquito bites and you feel the pain of the itch. You scratch the itch and feel the pleasure in scratching. Same bite bringing both pain and pleasure.

Be open and flexible.

The third karma is longevity or life span. The theory of karma states that the longer you live the more experiences you have, the greater your knowledge and so the wiser you become. The length of your life is one thing, but the vitality of your life is another. The vitality you have now is a direct result of the last life. Be tremendously enthusiastic about life now and it will affect this life, as well as the next life. The karma affecting your next life is formed during the last 48 minutes of this incarnation.

Be vital and enthusiastic

The fourth karma is that which hinders your will power. When this kind of karma is operating it makes us incapable of doing even the simplest of things. Negative thoughts grow and become more negative, more emotional and more dangerous. This develops into anxiety, fear, anger and even hostility. Finally it breaks out into self-destructive actions. When you lose the ability to harness your will power many complications will arise in your life.

Be willful.

Master lack of knowledge, blocked feelings, unhealthy lifestyle and inability to harness your free will and you will have the tools to work through your karma. Remember to be aware, open and flexible, vital and enthusiastic, and willful .But remember it takes work – that’s karma!

#Yoga Today ~ Your #Karma comes in Percentages


 
 
 
 
 
 
Keep in mind form last week that it takes 120 days to change a karmic pattern. Every 120 days new red blood cells circulate through your body and that 84% of the cells in your body are red blood cells.

 

Karma particles come into our lives in percentages and these percentages have a great influence on the nature of our lives.

1.     The smallest percentage of karma relates to the length of your life. No matter what you do, negative or positive, this karma determines the length of your life. The percentage is 5 percent. This is an interesting concept as we can see that the length of our life is not nearly as important as the nature of our life.

2.     Name and fame equal 6 percent. Each is an equal 3 percent, so your name and the level of notoriety are 6 percent of your reason for being in this incarnation.

3.     The karma that determines your individuality equals 8 percent, and the karma that determines your family and family origin is another 8 percent for a total of 16 percent.

4.      The karma of knowledge, happiness, and awareness each equal 12 percent for a total of 36 percent. Remember, negative karma can block happiness (12 percent of your being) just as it can hinder knowledge and the ability to see things as they truly are.

5.     Belief and conduct each make up 9 ½ percent of your karma for a total of 19 percent

6.     The karma of joy equals 18 percent. The greatest amount of negative karma goes into prohibiting the expression of joy.

 

What this means is that your karma is divided into percentages and these percentages rule different areas of your life. We cannot change our individuality or our family of origin,(16%)but we can change the other 84 %; name and fame, knowledge, happiness and awareness, beliefs and conduct, and the expression of joy.   We have chosen to return to a particular family as a particular individual for the completion of our lessons. Using these percentages we can see ways to improve our lives.

#Yoga Today #Eight Types of #Karma


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There are eight types of karma we encounter in our lifetime. The first is attitudinal karma. All karmic events are processed through the attitudes we carry. The second is event karma. Certain events happen in the course of our lives that create change. Marriages, birth of children, divorce, death of loved one, change in job and other earthly events that help to shape our lives. The third is time gates. We have all had experiences or known someone whose life has suddenly taken a drastic change. Like the starving young actor who suddenly gets a break and his whole life changes. It is said this person has passed through a time gate. Time gates are everywhere and due to our attitudes we can often walk right by an opportunity. The fourth is reciprocity. We reap what we sow and so what we give out into the world comes back to us. The fifth is generating. We are constantly generating karma by our actions. It will either manifest in this lifetime or the next. The sixth is supportive karma. This is the action we perform that supports karmic change. An example would be counseling or practicing yoga. The seventh is counteractive karma or doing things that are counter to the karma we are trying to work out. This is when we know we should be acting in one way, but act in another and thus create self-sabotaging actions. The eighth is destructive karma. This of course is action that we take that deepens our karma or adds destructive consequences to our lives. A life of crime or drug addiction would be destructive examples.

To overcome a piece of karma or to implement a lasting change we need to apply a simple formula. Karma yoga teaches that it takes 120 days to overcome a piece of karma. This is called a trine pattern. A trine is what astrology refers to as an aspect or the distance between two planets. A trine is the distance of 120 degrees. A trine symbolizes good luck. Modern science tells us that new red blood cells circulate for about 120 days. So most likely it would take about 120 days to lock into your cellular memory something that you would like to change. Keep this in mind 84% of the cells in your body are red blood cells. Let’s get to work!

 

Our emotions are energy impressions embedded into the protein structure of our cells. Our body is constantly building up and breaking down these protein structures. Any emotional energy stored in your cells will be regenerated into new cells. The question then becomes, how do we best implant new energy memory into the cells? Karma teaches us that the best way to learn a lesson and implement change is through awareness, meditation, contemplation, reflection, and vicarious learning. By observing and consciously becoming aware of the karma we are attempting to change, we can and will learn the lesson. Karma tells us that if the lesson has been truly learned (change has been made) a space opens and we then have a greater opportunity to manifest free will. We become the masters of our own destiny and this leads to prosperity.

# Yoga Today - #Reincarnation – why you are here


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
According to karma, we leave this world with unfinished business. Our holdover place is somewhat like heaven. It is not the final resting place, but simply a place to reflect. When the time is right we make the decision to return to another life in an attempt to fulfill our mission and remove our karma.

The soul does not possess human senses and thus must return to earth in human form to experience the desires of this lifetime. We choose the nature of our birth and the structure of our lives as the most expedient experience to teach us our karmic lesson. This does not mean we accomplish our mission in this lifetime or the next. We keep trying until we get it right. A lifetime, according to karma is simply a blink of time in the universe. So, according to karma, we are eternal and infinite like the energy of the universe and therefore have many lifetimes to gather the wisdom we seek. Choose wisely and you will discover liberation; the freedom that comes when you are at peace. But before we find peace we must establish ourselves in strength, flexibility and balance – let’ get started.

 

 

 

There are three forces of karma enticing us to return for another lifetime experience.

1.     Our deepest wish is to be free of all karma and therefore  we return to annihilate all karma

2.     Our desire to taste (experience) the things we tasted in a previous life. These are the cravings and desires of the flesh

3.     The desire to taste (experience) things we never tasted before.

 

So pay careful ATTENTIONS TO THE OBSTACLES THAT APPEAR IN YOUR LIFE. This is your opportunity to annihilate karma

What do you crave and desire? These things will give insight into the direction of your soul and the work you are here on earth to complete.

#Yoga Today ~ #life becomes what life does


 
 
 
 
 
 
Essentially, the laws of karma state that every action, thought, word, or deed produces a physical or mental effect. It also produces an invisible intention or inclination. This proclivity is stored in your soul (the memory track of your spirit). Everything that we do, say, or think, affects us on all planes; body, mind, and soul.

 

Because the invisible effects of our actions are stored in our souls, they endure beyond our earth life, maintaining the potential to be energized in future lives. According to karma, the soul chooses the nature of its earthly experience based upon the desire to present itself with the potential to work through a piece or pieces of karma.

If in your past life you were cruel and abusive you will come to your present life and experience those things in an attempt to find compassion and understanding. Awareness is the key.

 

When we come to earth we bring with us the seeds of compassion, forgiveness, joy, love and fearlessness. But to cultivate and realize these we must experience the opposite. You cannot forgive if you have never asked for forgiveness. You cannot be compassionate unless you understand what it is like to be heartless and cruel and you cannot find love and joy unless you know hatred and pain. Everything in life has its counter opposite. Everything in life has the potential to be both pleasure and pain. A mosquito bites you and you feel the pain of the bite. You scratch the itch and feel the pleasure of the scratch. Same bite brings both pain and pleasure. You cannot experience one without the other. So to find and know balance, flexibility, strength and peace we must be aware of the opposite. Observe and be aware.  Let’s get stated.

 

Karma is present energy that, under certain conditions, changes from invisible to visible form. We look upon these manifestations as either rewarding or punishing when in fact they are simply results of past actions and attitudes. If you are heartless and cruel that energy makes an impression and under certain conditions will bring you unhappiness. Therefore we should seek to be aware of heartlessness and cruelty and then combat it with caring and compassion. In this we change our karma and in this we make the world a better place. Just remember life becomes what life does.

#Yoga Today ~ When we are feeling #weak and #indecisive we need to find the #strength to regain our #balance.


 
 
 
 
 
 
Life will present us with many opportunities to lose and discover our balance.  To find our balance there must be clarity, focus and strength. To lose our balance is to allow the emotional aspects of life to throw us into a tailspin. When we allow emotions to dominate our mind the life force gets scattered and the body gets weak. Balance brings with it clarity of mind and a strong and healthy body. When body, mind and soul are in perfect balance we have perfect health. Emotions always muddy the clarity of the mind and  cause us to lose our balance. For example if you lose your patience with someone you might become angry. Anger throws us into a tailspin and this tailspin causes us to be scattered and unbalanced. You then become an unbalanced angry person. That’s your karma! Your life becomes scattered, decisions are more difficult and problems don’t get solved.  But in this there is a lesson.  When deep emotions come into your life, such as anger, life calls upon you to observe and own your anger, rather than blaming everyone and everything for your anguish. Each lesson in life gives you a choice. Observe and remain balanced or buy into the emotion and become scattered and weak. Patience is what is required when emotions arise. It is said for the friendship of two the patience of one is required. When you practice patience over anger you change your karma and when you change your karma you get closer to nirvana. It all begins with balance, flexibility and strength. Let’s get started.

Karma yoga reminds us to stay centered and grounded no matter what life hands us. It also means to not go to extremes. It means to walk the middle road. This means to not identify with anything – remain detached and then come back to the present moment and see what needs to be done to recover your balance and find peace. Balance means to detach, remain still and let life flow as it will, but never be indifferent to all that is happening around you and within you.

#Yoga Today ~ the #chaos of#life


 
 
 
 
 
 
The chaos of life will always be whirling around us.  But chaos can present us with opportunity for growth and the ability to reach higher states of being. We just need to realize that we have the power to turn chaos into opportunity. The chaos of life will challenge our sense of balance, our strength, our flexibility and our peace of mind. We must decide to either walk our soulful path or let the chaos of life sweep us along into a frenzy.  Just remember the basic nature of cosmic energy is chaos with the potential to create or destroy. How we use this energy depends upon our ability to be flexible when faced with change, be strong in the face of opposition and to maintain our balance when challenged with the storms of life.  

Cosmic energy, which can appear chaotic, is void of judgement and so can move in any direction. It is simply energy in movement.  We just need to realize that we have the power to choose stability and balance over anguish, fear and pain. Discovering and harnessing this awareness we are empowered to continually create anew.  Whatever comes our ways we have the power to let it make us stronger or whirl us into a destructive chaotic frenzy. To find our strength and balance we must ground ourselves in the present moment, sit still, take a breath and then move towards creation rather than destruction. This we will work to find today in the sitting Zen. Let’s get started.

Taming the chaotic nature of life is work and will not come without a lot of effort. That’s karma. It means action with moral consequences. The paradox is that although this work takes tremendous conscious effort, when living it, we find peace and tranquility. However, along the way there will be many temptations. The greatest temptation of all will be that of the ego. It is the ego that thinks it can justify anything and everything; even violence. It is the ego that throws up walls of division.  Consciously taming the ego we remove these walls and learn to embrace the unity of life.
