Evolution towards Balance and Freedom

Evolution is about becoming more aware and more sensitive. The whole world performs actions, but the yogis’ actions bring balance. The question is; how are you going to know that you are balanced?

I can only do my best and my best is when I am feeling what I’m doing. Don’t just do. We go into this mode of only doing.  Do, but with feeling; with the awareness of the sensations that the action is bringing about. Be clear making the movement, be aware.

An experience of one second of total freedom indicates to you that you are on the right path; the path towards balance. And that is enough. One second; one moment of totality. Wonderful. Like this, in all the poses, a little spark. And that spark changes our entire life.

Asana Practice, Spiritual Practice

The postures only become a spiritual practice when we endeavor, when we try to bring balance. In bringing balance, we’re actually bringing balance on all levels. For everything resides in this body. We are born in this body, everything resides in it. Once you start to bring balance, balance with the breath, you discover that you become more still, more quiet. After all, mind plays in the zone of the body and influences it. And these influences are seen and removed. If we are only doing postures, our imbalances continue to remain, and though we may become flexible and even feel better; the practice is not spiritual. Thus, svadhyaya is seeing all this, studying it. So, don’t be action oriented. See what is happening and sort out imbalances. We always solve them here and now. Not leaving them for tomorrow.

If it’s about balance, how can I put my body in such a situation that it is becoming imbalanced? Thus, when I put my body in difficult situations, I need time to bring that balance. This is called asana practice.
