“We have what we seek. It is there all the time, and if we give it time it will make itself known to us.”
Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Michael Eng.
Yesterday I set a record. I took three yoga classes in one day. It was amazing. I started off with a mixed yoga class at Yogaphoria in New Hope, PA with Sue Elkind. It was great! A perfect blend of philosophy, strength training, flexibility, spirituality and fun.
Then, I took a hatha yoga class with Senthil Kumar at CanDo Fitness Club, which was also wonderful. During that class I felt some tingly sensations going through my body, which I have read about – it’s called prana.
I ended my day with a kundalini yoga class with Vanessa Kudrat. Something amazing happened during this class. I started to feel the prana again, but this time it started to get more and more intense. My arms were literally vibrating with energy, so much that I felt that I had super-powers and could move things without touching them. I actually tried to move someones water bottle, but didn’t. It was such an amazing feeling. I’ve never felt that before.
It’s inside all of us. But somewhere along the line, we have lost touch with nature and our true selves. We are numbed by TV, iPods, the news, video games and other external factors. We search outside of ourselves for happiness, but the wise ones know that true happiness lies within. Senthil said that wherever there is a lot of entertainment, there is people that are lost. We need to find ourselves again.
This awareness helps us perform at a higher level in sports and all areas of life.
We don’t know what we are capable of.
And we will never know unless we start to do different things. Unless we get out of our normal, mindless routines and get in touch with our true selves again.
Take a couple of deep breaths. In through the nose for four seconds and out through the nose for four seconds.
Do this for as long as you want. Focus on deep breaths from the stomach. Thoughts may pop up, that’s okay, just accept them and go back to your breath. Continue.
This inner peace will give you better mental clarity, reduce stress and give you a calm energy throughout your day. And it is the first step in getting closer to your true self.
