Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it.
“Living” is a phrase gaining awareness and popularity in the world of yoga. Living Yoga and similar phrases like living meditation, living zen, and living the path have been crossing my feeds. More and more, yoga magazines and writers are using the phrase living yoga.
What is this sudden interest in the word living and why is it being attached to these other words like yoga?
There is an awakening to the depths of yoga. For decades, or perhaps thousands of years, yoga instructors have communicated that yoga is far more than stretching and exercise. The message is finally sinking in.
Living your yoga is about lifestyle.
And by lifestyle, I do not mean wearing ‘yoga’ clothing, or attending the hippest ‘yoga conventions,’ or knowing all the proper ‘yoga’ speech. It has nothing to do with being vegetarian, vegan, raw, breatharian or other ideologies.
Living your path is all about authenticity, discovery, truth, expression and SOUL.
Are you looking for a real relationship?
On the prowl, searching the internet for how to find, land and live with the person of your dreams?
Pouring through advice, discussion, and copious amounts of lists and information about what makes men and women tick?
You have learned what you want and are armed with a clear picture of what makes a woman or man ‘real’, strong boundaries, traits that cannot be accepted, and commonalities that must be present. You are prepped for the hazards of dating and certain of a victorious hunt. Experienced, there has been growth and strong clarity about the traits a person wants in a partner, in love, and life. You are ready for what’s next.
Everyone, to a larger or smaller degree, has intuitive capability. Known by many names such as gut instinct, seventh sense, intuition, or inner guidance, and more, each person experiences this type of non-verbal knowing at some point in their life. This in-built human ability can be brought into awareness and cultivated with increasing sensitivity, awareness and accuracy.
In a society that denigrates dreams, individuality, and expression, people become accustomed to setting aside the natural, quiet guidance inherent to us all. When it comes to intuition most people start at the same place; self-doubt, fear, ignorance and self-denigration.
1. First honoring, then seeing the non-verbal inner realm is a journey.
The approaches used by the mind to communicate knowledge, experiences and stories are not the approaches that ones heart and soul use to communicate presence.
Aware and conscious masculinity is a growing topic of interest.
It’s a confusing term, a label around which judgments abound. What is conscious? What makes a man aware? These are anxiety producing questions because in the modern world of relationships, being ‘not spiritual enough’ has become a legitimized excuse for ending a relationship.
Having read through some of the 30+ bullet point lists of what makes a man conscious, here are three core traits of conscious masculinity presented in classic man-style ; simple and to the point.
When it comes down to it, the conscious male can never fit the idea or mold presented in a book, blog list, or philosophy. Vibrant, empowered, the awakened man is at heart, an individual who knows who they are. These three traits allow for the development of the other traits, characteristics and emotional stability of the truly awakened man.
My first piece about why men withdraw emotionally generated rich dialogue. Thank you, each of you for your insights. Your responses have influenced my perceptions. This is the follow-up.
Originally, the premise of my thoughts were based on how men work with emotions and how a female partner could be supportive of their growth curve. My biggest error was in making so much about gender relationship, when it is really about human to human relationship.
Men and women withdraw emotionally. From each other, from other people, from their environments, from their own self. The reasons are varied and individual.
Meditation is scientifically proven to …
Eureka! Aha! Bingo!
The lightning flash of inspiration. The unasked for insight that suddenly appears. Emotional confusion, resolves. A long sought for answer, arrives. In the space of a heartbeat, life evolves.
Learning happens in as many ways as their are individuals. From not at all, to tortoise or hare pace, anywhere in-between and beyond. Epiphanies are cosmic light-jumps, a non-linear recognition, able to touch the heart, and bring to light profound knowledge.
Epiphanies are soul-shifting.
