the light that we seek is within us, so the search is going to be an inward search. .
by practicing the different steps of yoga for the destruction of impurity, there arises spiritual illumination that develops into awareness of reality. .
the diamond doesn’t have to be created, the diamond is already there - only the layers of mud have to be removed. we don’t have to add something to our being. we are already more than that - this is the problem. we gathered too much around us, the diamond has gathered too much mud. The mud has to be washed away, and suddenly there is the diamond.
♀️Fear is nothing but a place you feel there is no love. Go there and bring love always with you.
Don't hold on to what wants to go, just let it go. Life is taking you someplace you need to be. Stop fighting the process and surrender to your path. See everything as a gift and a chance to get stronger.
Life is filled with ups and downs … valleys and peaks that will test your resilience, that will push you to overcome challenges and the lessons you’ll learn on your way to the top will only make you stronger and even better in all cases. .
To diminish our fears we can develop our self-confidence and so our belief in ourselves and our abilities. Self-confidence is not absence of fear, but mastery of fear. The more confident you are the more attractive and persuasive you will be, and the better you will perform at everything you turn your hand to. With better self-confidence, with an unshakable belief in yourself, nothing would be impossible for you. to @alexandravanschaik
Patanjali: s e l f - r e s t r a i n t You can live a life that goes on moving in opposite directions, in many directions, and then you will never reach anywhere. You can go on moving in many ways, but unless you have a direction, you are moving uselessly. You will feel more and more frustrated and nothing else. To create self-restraint means first to give a direction to your life energy. Life energy is limited, if you go in using it in absurd, undirected ways, you will not reach anywhere. And how? Once you give a direction to your life, immediately a center, and then the center gives directions. And they are mutually fulfilling.
