Yoga Self Study
Yoga Self Study
Yoga Self Study

Who your are?

Most of the time you’re not what you want truly. You’re doing something to impress somebody or satisfy somebody, what somebody feels about you.

Most of the time you don’t know what you want, because you’re not done ‘self-study’ your floating in your thoughts, feelings, and desires.

Your desires, not yours, you go somewhere to eat some food or you have done something.

All these,  the food you ate,  the situations you are in, environment and your company may raise the storm.

You started feeling yours are the storm so when your desires completed,  you did not feel happy or joyful, after few days you started to feel why you are doing all this. You feel you wanted the reason, it is done.

Yoga Self Study
Yoga Self Study

How to understand :

‘self-study’ is soul study that you are, become aware of who you are.

You’re cleaning body, your lighting your mind. you are the body,? mind?

Are you a thought?  are you feeling? Are you aware of your feelings that you are?

Meditation will purify our system it helps us brings solid energy and it will purify us.

Good-Bad side :

 Some people will do meditation in longer time feel themselves greater.

If you glorify yourself you do so much meditation may lead to egoism.

If it perceived wrongly, you will get a lot of egoism.

To avoid this, do self-study.

Why to do it:

 

 Why you’re doing meditation, is it for showoff or you’re competing with others.

‘There is an interesting story; we look why we have to do self-study’.

Once upon a time, two neighbors started doing meditation, God appeared to one person and asked what you want,  are going to my neighbor house? he asked, God, said yes.

You started early 1 hour early, I came here first. Not possible to ignore him, he asked. God said no. I should go to meet him, then this man requested whatever you gave to him,  You give me 2 times of that!. God said Okay.

Then god went to second person house and asked what you want?

Are coming from the neighbor house? He asked, are you given to him.

God said yes, then he asked what you gave to him, God is silent now.

The Second person insisted what you gave to him. God little skeptical then said ’what I will give to you, he asked 2 times of that’,  by listening to this,  the second person said, okay you take my an eye and an ear. I will teach him the lesson. He is always competing with me; let him get twice of what I get!.

This shows that with ‘self-study’ Meditations brings you the egoism’.

Ancient yogis Advice:

Ancient yogis asked to observe the intentions beyond our actions.

Using the self-study you can go to an ignorant world.

‘Self-study’ you’re free from your sadness of

Your mind, the burden of your mind.

Buddha says observe your body that is Meditation; observe sensations in your body.

Observe mind samskara, thoughts in your mind, your feelings, your religions behavior.

Buddha, Pathanjali maharishi says same things.

Benefits:

‘Self-study you can remove all mental and emotional impurities, uncertainties, fears by complete surrendering to God.

Without love, self-study is felt dry.

Without surrendering self-study is not attractive, without love surrendering to a spiritual path not good.

That likes cake without sweet, food without salt,

How can we love God, Rise love towards God?

The First step in surrender is to see separateness in God and yourself then surrender it.

Second is god and myself is one and needed to surrender.

Become immersed in God, surrender I am no one immerse in virtue of greater God.

You get awareness, everything belongs to him. This body,  this world, this mind, this struggle of mind is yours, this beautiful mind is your, surrendering is also an act you come to home, feel ‘Samadhi’

Contemplation, feel the joy of meditation, offering light, flowers are not greater. You must offer your every part of your body.

Offer each minute of life, offer every breath, and offer every thought, offering every feeling. Good or bad thoughts, negative or positive all your feeling.

Offering all negative emotions feeling you become free.

Offering all positive quality you feel you have not got egoism.

By good virtues, you may become an egoist. You feel your special.

Your bad qualities, you feel lack, you pull down,  if you selected bad feeling, you feel bad about yourself.

Further ……

Yoga

 You feel God separated from you, to connect with God. You’re not able to do any other things.

To feel God it is your hand.

To feel near,  to anybody is dependent upon you.

They may not feel near to you, you can feel their nearness.

You can’t judge God, this is not the right way to Judge God.

Nobody can tell how near you with God,  other then yourself, nobody can tell this, nobody can compare.

What you grow or you sow, that grows. If you feel the stupid not good person that develops.

Most of the times generally unnecessary plants your sowing, it will grow in your garden.

You should observe and grow the useful plants in your garden.

it is Like unnecessary plants in your garden you may get unnecessary unuseful thoughts, thinking, and feelings every day that you may not plant it. They come themselves…

By doing the self-study you can remove unnecessary things, only keep necessary things for life.

Rajasik Meditation

Doing the work for showoff is Rajiska Meditation

Whatever they do they have intention beyond it, even they are doing the voluntary service, they have the intentions beyond it ‘what I will get from this’ they are thinking.

They are telling the world I am doing the mediation sometimes now, I am a very good person, I will sing very sing melodiously, I can dance beautifully, I can do this, I can do that. I am doing great service.

They do all this for shoe off when people do this on feeling ‘I’ feeling that is called Rajasika.

Meditation will be physical, mental and Emotional.

The Reason beyond the sadness- wants to know the truth – Meditation helps you.

Root reason beyond the sadness:

The Reason of sadness;

Yoga :Reason of sadness
Reason of sadness

Anger, ignorance, too many desires are some reasons beyond the sadness.  Assume which are permanent and which are not permanent…

Assume which is happiness, not happiness assume which is eternal and not eternal.

If we are not in body, assume we are in body…

We are not our feelings or thoughts but we assume we are our thoughts or feelings.

Truth:

yoga: Changing the Mind Body
yoga: Changing the Mind Body continuously

We live like this body is not changing. Truth is our Body is always changing every day 24 hours a day, our blood is changing for 5 days, and the upper layer of our stomach is changing for 1 month our skin will change, for the very year each of cells of body changes.

Our body is like a river, do think that way..? And understand that way, your body is always changing…  period of one year all cells of the body going to die, and formation of new cells….

Your body becomes a new body… your mind is new. If you’re exposed to the truth…

We won’t keep:

Your old fears. Old thoughts…Old feelings you’re not going to identify with that.

Ignorance is keeping everything, keeping your past identity. People said who you are; people appreciate when you assume your identity.

If you’re assuming your identity, very sticky to identity. Listen you’re finished, your struck…You do not know who you’re is right perceptions

Allow Possibility to Flow

Yoga :spiritual possibility
Yoga :spiritual possibility Flow

 Because you’re changing every minute and you’re opened for changing every minute. If you assume your identity you’re strong in one identity, then you may destroy that will stop your development.

That will stop your possibilities that will bring you for limited or make your boundaries.

If you’re identified with your intelligence, sometimes you can observe some people discuss one topic and they keep the stick on to the same topic they struck with the same topic. they keep that without meaning without sense, they keep arguing.

They struck very much they identified themselves with intelligence or them

Identified with their thoughts, they keep arguing without common senses.

My thoughts. my position, I  assume it.

People not able to identify the separateness in the soul.

In Intelligence, perception capacities, in the capacity we tend to identify things separately.
