Message for 11-11-11

Anyone who’s looked at the world around, knows that we are in a time of great change.   We have indulged a little too much in a path which creates disharmony among people, and within Earth herself.

We see clearly what has become and realize the ignorance which created it.  Now, as intelligent beings, we must put that wayward, ignorant mind in transformation. We have to powerfully yet lovingly bring healing to humanity.

 We shall put our minds together in unity, to focus on the creation and  development of the earth we desire.  For as we all know, it all starts in the mind. We have to see it first, for it to manifest before us.

Let us first support the gifts and goals of those who choose to bring forth the wisdom and technology of a new earth. Let’s support those who speak of love and creativity. Let’s look at what we put value to in our lives. Who and what do we support with the powerful energy of our dollar. Let’s open the door to allow through imagination and wisdom a chance to create a loving and fun place to experience life and happiness for our families.

Everything we need for joyful, healthy living is before us.  Those who speak with wisdom and of love are in the space of a much higher vibration and power than those based in fear. Feed only that which we desire and only that will grow.

 So in this time, when minds unite, focus with great power of intention on the support and love for all humanity. Focus on the earth you wish to live with healthy air water, free energy, food and warmth for every being on the planet. It is our natural and inherent right to be here and be fed. No man owns, controls or sells the earth. It is ours to nurture to love and to enjoy. Together we approach a new world.

This is where we are now

It is a wonderful time

Words of Wisdom from Dear Teachers

Namaste all.  I have put together some of my favorite quotes from the beautiful Douglas and also my great inspiration, Andrey Lappa.  I hope you enjoy! ;o)  (I am overflowing here, so ready to go!) ~Shalyn Bauschlicher, Associate Yoga Teacher

Douglas King:

*The vital understanding of man on this earth and our relation to the heavens is discovered in the practice of yoga, through right living, and steady pose.  

To this I would like to respond with the definition I found when searching “Satori” (what I know to be temporary Samadhi in Savasana, corpse pose): a flash of sudden awareness, individual enlightenment…”It is often said that when you truly need a teacher-or that which will function in lieu of a teacher-a teacher or satori, for example, will fall upon you.”

*Our physical body can heal and regenerate itself through awareness and interrelated support of the earth, sun and sky.

PRANA, Life Force

*We are inherently supposed to be strong, healthy and vibrant through our days, happy and wise as we age.

*Natural living is awareness of nature and living in harmony by nuturing the native environment and utilizing the fruits naturally present for our health and well being.

*While working to perfect the postures, our mind is challenged to be calm and peaceful in order to work through physical and emotional aspects of the practice.

*Synergize the movement into a powerful charge of energy…

This can be especially helpful when breaking through physical and emotion barriers in the individual practice…I am sure you will hear me repeat the words of my teacher in our practice together, “The pose is not easy, it is not difficult…it is what it is.”

*Regret for things we’ve done can be tempered by time. Regret for things we did not do is inconsolable.

(Book of Vinyasas: Creative Flow for Yoga  by Douglas King)

Still one of my favorite books of sequences.  I love Doug’s classes.

Andrey Lappa:

*Your attention is your “wireless” connection to your object of focus.

*Ego is the separation from things and those around you.

*Yoga is non-duality (unification), control (sign of presence of consciousness) and balance (control of energies).

*Using only physical practice with no balance of breath, meditation and purpose can actually inflate the ego.

For beginners the practice can be very good and humbling for the ego, but when only the only focus is asana development without the practice of the main goals of yoga (unity, control and balance) it can lead to imbalance and strong dualities.

*Yoga is technology teaching how to be conscious.

*God is One with many faces…Oneness has unlimited channels.

*When we eat unorganic foods, we are ingesting poison [residues]…eat unorganic thoughts and you have the same problem.

*For many people around the world, wealth and happiness can be found in a handful of rice: it means for one more week they have life.  (And think of the expressions on the faces of people in Wall Street).

Swami Rama:

*…you don’t need much external information, you already have true knowledge within.  You need to learn to apply the knowledge that you have.

Happy pondering! ;o) Namaste

Love, Shalyn
