    who sustains all of creation in his consciousness Echoing the sentiments of many Masters through the ages Yogananda said Only love can take my place We awaken to our true potential by the love we feel from each other As we go through life we gradually begin to feel the divine blessing that breathes into each one of us The love and recognition of our true worth are lifelines for us in difficult times The greatest thing we can do is to move more and more toward our divine essence and to channel that divine Light to others through our uplifting thoughts and deeds As we sense the divine beauty in others and are able to reflect their beauty back to them we both are blessed We are in divine relationship Tune in sensitively to the awe that you feel as you see the Divine in the faces of your friends It is real Nurture that awareness in yourself Nurture the light in your friends by seeing their inner being every day Seek the divine consciousness within yourself and creatively and lovingly awaken that light in others This entry was posted in Superconscious Living Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Have posts you are interested in sent to you when they are published Help the Expanding Light better serve people About the Author Uddavada Ramsden Registered Level II Yoga Teacher Posts for Superconscious Living Healing on All Levels Seclusion of the Heart Make Me a Channel of Thy Peace Music for Going Deeply Within How to Feel God s Presence How to Have Spiritual Relationships Pray for It Never Give Up An Ayurvedic Retreat What Are You Thinking Categories Meditation Meditation Teacher Training

  • What is Ananda Yoga?
    other practice can Continuous awareness We move slowly smoothly and consciously into and out of the asanas so as not to diminish or interrupt our awareness of energy flows generated through the asanas A continuous awareness of the spine using it consciously at all times and keeping it well supported is central to this Moving in this way increases both our awareness of energy and its ability to move freely through the spine Similarly in the deeper practice we never strain in the asanas because that would diminish both the energy flow and our awareness of it Work yes strain no Pauses Why do we pause in a neutral pose between active poses e g in Tadasana after Utkatasana or each side of Trikonasana It s certainly different from much of the Hatha Yoga one sees these days which leans heavily in the direction of vinyasa practice Swami Kriyananda was blunt when I asked him about this trend It s not good yoga If you hold a position that s when you can get into the consciousness behind that position Constant motion isn t the answer It just becomes calisthenics Ours is a path of constantly coming back to the center to the spine That s the core of it and you can t do that if you re always moving from one asana to the next The time between active poses is very important So the pause is not just to rest it s to work with energy and consciousness to assimilate the benefits of the preceding pose internalize awareness and lift the awakened freed energy toward the brain We would lose this opportunity if we moved into the next active asana without pausing The neutral pose is to a great extent the completion of the preceding active pose as well as preparation for the next one What about the affirmations If there s one thing that s unique about Ananda Yoga it s asana affirmations It s tempting to say Ah here s something definitive without affirmations it s not Ananda Yoga Well Swami Kriyananda doesn t view it that way Obviously the center of Ananda Yoga is not the fact of having affirmations The center of Ananda Yoga is the way in which it helps our meditation our stillness I can see how people might resist doing asana affirmations and still feel they were working with the energy and so on Nonetheless they re a good thing and they do help your consciousness So it s not a question of whether we can do Ananda Yoga without affirmations The real question is What leads us most quickly to our goal Whatever that is we ll do it if we re serious about the goal Affirmations are not the goal raising consciousness is the goal Affirmations are a means to that goal as Swami put it they do help your consciousness That s why it s clear to me that a serious Ananda Yogi will want to use
