When we are introspecting alone we may say otherwise but in a social setting, we refer to ourselves as the body. Even if someone questions us directly that who are you? we start explaining ourselves as either our bodies or as the identities/roles we have taken up in the world. It is completely wrong though. The body is a vehicle that we use to express ourselves. We are not limited to it. We have so much more to us.
The biggest adventure I think a human being can take is to seek their ultimate nature. This is the only thing I feel is worthwhile. We are here on this planet for a very short time (from an evolutionary aspect) and the death of the body is 100% guaranteed. So, why not embark on this beautiful journey of self-realisation?
We could have given up on this idea if there would have been no way. But, there is a way – An inward journey through yoga. Ever since the ancient times, again and again, people have risen above the worldly stuff and recognised who they truly are using this path. They try to explain it in their own ways that who we are exactly. There are so many names (atman, brahman, soul, spirit, etc.) but all are talking about the same thing. We refer to such people as the enlightened one. They explain that we all have that seed within us which will take us to the final destination. All we have to do it try and nurture it. ❤
Imagine if we could completely ignore the body and just see the being within everyone clearly. Then, how will our standards of beauty change? ?
I used to practice the ancient Chinese technique called Taiji (or Tai Chi) which helped me a lot in developing awareness of my energy body. Later, I discovered various forms of yoga which were a lot more efficient and effective in enhancing our overall system.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we have learned in the previous posts, we are not limited to flesh and bone. There is so much more to us. Today, we will talk about our energy body in little more detail.
There is a whole energetic system surrounding us all the time. With certain forms of photography (like #kirlianphotography) we can scientifically prove this. But, how many of us do you think are constantly aware of this? How many us are managing our parapsychological bodies consciously? How many of us are even educated on this subject?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is part of my mission to make everyone more conscious of who they are and the reality of existence.
There are way too many problems in the world that needs to addressed. However, there is one that I feel is the root of all – It is not knowing our essential nature. ?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We just don’t know who we actually are and unfortunately, a lot of people are not even curious. Due to this ignorance, the world is going through a spiritual crisis. There are way too many people going through mental and emotional pain. ?⠀⠀⠀
I believe eastern philosophies (esp. Buddhism) and yogic sciences are the keys to opening-up human consciousness in a big way and can significantly reduce the suffering that we are creating for ourselves. I believe these are the real solutions that humans need.
I am walking on this path laid by the ancient sages and wish to take as many people as I possibly can with me. ?⠀
