“You are not helping anybody else, but only yourself.” Sri Ramana
The practice of yoga is usually followed by a change in eating habits. When your body and inner-self start feeling good, you tend to pay closer attention to what you put into your body. Besides being responsible for building our physical body, the foods we eat profoundly affect our mind.
My boy, who is nine, said to me, “Mom, I know it’s weird, but I don’t think I’m alive. I don’t think you’re alive either.”
“Oh yeah?” I asked, intrigued. “Do tell!”
“Well, I’m not me, and you’re not you; we’re just atoms.”
consider the diamond:
the tender darkness of a fleshy soul
deep within the heart of the earth,
secure & content in the silence
of its own endless night
Who is Enlightened and who is not? How can you tell? Are you looking for Enlightenment? It means you are looking for a product of some type perhaps, does it not? Should you not know what the product is all about? Do you know what Enlightenment looks like? How will you know when you come across it? How will you consume it? How does one find Enlightenment? Where does one start? How does one start? What tools does one use to become Enlightened?
