All suggestions should be considered in thought, word and deed.

Truthfulness means to conduct your thoughts, words and actions according to the truth. The truth however can get somewhat murky. Thoughts, words and action that harm even if true should not be done. The guiding factor when it comes to walking the soulful path is to do no harm. However, if you must do something that will cause harm make sure you are doing it for the greatest good and for the greatest many. Look to intention.

What is the truth? All you need to do is get quiet and search within your soul. You will know. Then with a quiet mind speak and act in truthful ways, but always keep your intentions in mind. If the intention is to hurt and the truth hurts refrain from speaking or taking any action.

Physical truth means to unify yourself so as to act in ways that uplifts you and all those you encounter. Truth that has been understood intellectually and expressed in words will manifest itself into worthy and good actions.

Another aspect of truthfulness is keeping your word. However, there may be times when keeping your word is not possible. Again it comes back to intent. Circumstances in life may make the truth a difficult choice. Here is something to thinks about:

Once upon a time a yogi sage was meditating in the woods. A beautiful deer jumped past him and ran off into the woods. Very soon a hunter came by and asked the yogi if he had seen the deer and which way it ran. If the yogi tells the truth the hunter will kill the deer. This will create harm. If on the other hand he does not tell the truth the hunter and his family will starve. What should he do? Always choose the greatest good for the greatest many.


Some say the truth should only be spoken from a place of careful thought and some say truth should be spoken without consideration of its potential to hurt. In our modern day society it is important to reflect before speaking.  The world will often hurt each of us if we are not wise in how we think, speak and use the truth. If the truth will hurt or cause dissention be silent and do nothing. Nonviolence and truth together bring about peace. Don’t stop looking at all sides of an issue. It’s easy to get caught up in your own view of things and believe it to be the only truth. The truth has many facets and is never clearly black and white. What is the truth? You are the truth. Just listen and you will know. To practice truthfulness - Be honest.

#Yoga Today Suggested Guidepost #Nonviolence

Part of the practice of yoga is to be open, aware and observant of the power of suggestion. These suggestions are simply things you might want to consider when it comes to living your life. They are not rules. You don’t need to follow them. But they might bring a deep sense of understanding to your life.  Don’t worry about mastering them. Just be aware of how and when they appear in your life and how you handle them. Let them sit in your subconscious mind and watch them appear as guidepost along the path of Soul Walking.

All suggestions should be considered in thought, word and deed.

Nonviolence is the first suggestion. When we think of violence we often think of physical abuse. Although this is one form of violence, negative and hateful thoughts, as well as harsh and mean words are a form of violence. Gossip, insulting statements and bad advice are also forms of verbal violence. Remember that violence towards you, as well as allowing or encouraging others to be violent is to be avoided.

Your “soul” purpose for being here is to find and walk the soulful path.  Self-centeredness, inconsideration, lack of compassion and violence will take you off the soulful path. It matters not how far you get, but what you do along the way. Reincarnation is simply another chance to get back on the path. However, the farther you get in this lifetime the shorter the journey in the next.

Nonviolence does not mean only outward violence. It also means violence towards you. Self-criticism always hurts the soul. Cruel and angry thoughts, words and deeds toward others will also take you off the path. You are not about your body and your mind, but your body and your mind are about you. They are the vehicle and the GPS for your soul. So treat them well and most of all make sure you are kind to yourself. That inner kindness will radiate outward and be received by everyone and everything you encounter. To practice nonviolence - Be kind.

Don’t Confuse the Map for the Territory

Maya – the Illusion (what does it mean?)

Maya means illusion or boundaries and can be quite confusing. It does not mean that the world is not real. The world is made up of real experiences through which we gain real knowledge into the nature of our purusa or our real being. It is not the world that is the illusion, but our interpretation of the experience.

As we move through life we become defined by our experiences. As our knowledge of life develops we are constantly trying to refine what define us.  Understanding the nature of the real purpose of life, we no longer need to live within boundaries and false perceptions of what we should be or what we think will make us happy.  Removing the maya we see the proverbial forest for the trees. We begin to realize that our experiences are like the different trees; however they make up one forest.  The details of our lives are less important than the overall picture and yet it is through the details that we have a chance to discover the lessons and the meaning of life. Don’t confuse the map for the territory!

We control how we interpret the world by the choices we make.  But when presented with a choice how do we make the right choice? Look to your purusa- your soul.

Millionaires come and go. Beauty fades. What might be important today might mean nothing tomorrow. Understanding this we realize that the maya or the illusion is in believing that life is about boundaries, bank accounts and material possessions. It is not the material world that defines us, but rather it is how we use the material world to define and refine our being.  We need the world to help us create our lives. We are here as a physical and mental being to assist the soul’s evolution and so we need the world to help us evolve. Use the world but do not be used by it.

Just remember the world is here for you to use. Nothing in it is permanent. Everything is subject to change. You cannot run away from anything or stop things from changing. That is because change is inevitable and the only constant in the universe. Be alert and aware of maya.  Remember the world is real. Your interpretation of it is the illusion. Life will present you with problems to solve and decisions to make. Learn to solve your problems and master the illusion by connecting to your purusa; your soul. Remember you are here as a body, mind and soul to do the work (karma) so that the soul evolves. Choose wisely and you will navigate the territory of life using the map of awareness, compassion and understanding. In this you will never confuse the map for the territory.

How to Open the Positive Time Gates


The balancing of the chakras determines how we approach life. Each chakra has a negative spin and a positive spin. For example if you are feeling grounded strong and secure your root chakra is balanced and spinning in a positive direction. If the direction is negative you are feeling spacey, clingy or overly stubborn. When we practice yoga we work to balance the chakras and give them a positive spin. When this happens you open yourself up to finding creative and prosperous time gates.


Our attitude, perception and the depth of our wisdom determines whether we step though prosperous or disastrous time gates. Your karma will constantly be drawing you to certain gates. These are situation to gain or lose. How you interact with people and situations determine the outcome. You are what you think, say and do. If you are not working your karma you will become bound to the gates of disaster and destruction. The gate to prosperity may open before you, but because of your karmic blindness you might walk right by it.

Being aware and open to opportunity allows you to discover positive time gates and to avoid negative ones. You cannot be in a hurry to find them, but you must know what you are looking to find and stay open to all the possibilities.

To accomplish this you must work on your karma – don’t fall into D-GAP; deceit, greed, anger and pride will blind you from the opportunities of  life.. When these four arise, and they will, try to work them through; be honest, be generous, be compassionate and forgiving, and be humble.

Let’s get to work.

Being stuck in negativity at the lower chakras and at the lower layers of your being will blind you from the prosperous time gates and bind you to the destructive gates. Free up your energy, lighten your load and keep your eyes open for opportunity. Work on your karma and be aware. Remember not to fall into D-GAP. Replace deceit, greed, anger and pride with honesty, generosity, compassion and forgiveness, and be humble.
