The Process of Enlightenment -
The metaphor given by Ramakrishna usefully describes the process of 'gaining' enlightenment. He says it is like trying to remove the green scum of algae on top of a pond. You've probably seen a pond completely covered by this, in the middle of a hot summer, so you can't see the water. If you try to use say, a cup, to scoop the algae out onto the side, you will find for a long while that there is no visible effect. You will accumulate a pile of slime but what is left will just keep spreading out so you still can't see anything. -
After much effort, you will start to get glimpses of water but this will still be covered over if you stop scooping. If you persevere however, there will come a moment when the interplay of the forces of surface tension etc. with the remaining scum means that suddenly the covering will break up completely and you see an unbroken expanse of clear water. -
So it is with the Self. It is always there but is invariably covered up by a layer of ignorance (of varying density!). As we work on one of the acknowledged spiritual paths, we slowly remove some of this ignorance. For a long while it appears to have no effect. Eventually, we start to get occasional glimpses of the truth and, if we persevere, there will come a time when all is suddenly revealed - we are enlightened. -
We have not done anything to the Self (indeed could not). Trying to reach it (e.g. by moving aside the scum with the hands) is not productive either. What we do is remove the ignorance; drop the ideas, opinions, desires, fears etc. and lo and behold there is the truth, where it always was.

💫💫💫Fly @isaraimyoga FLY!!!!!Functional anatomy creates a solid foundation of roots and stability as we learn to take flight. Spanda, the literal vibrational pulse of life helps us to get aligned internally in our movements and rhythms, with this essence of life's patterns of energy. A beautiful evolution as @siannasherman so skillfully assists us in learning how to change old paradigms in the anatomy of yoga and how to be "smarter" in our bodies and teachings. Jai to the new and evolutionary ways of learning to be ONE with LIFE and all it's tendencies. To become more flexible and adaptable in our ways. To allow old habits to be released that are no longer helpful or become too rigid. May we always FEEL this beautiful pulse of life within us! 🙏❤💫
It's almost time!!!
I'm so excited to have received a 3 day pass for the @igniteyogasummit happening this weekend from the wonderful team at @yogapilatesconnect 💕
So grateful to be able to learn, share and grow with a seriously amazing yoga community. 🙏🏼
Gladwell's rule about the time it takes to become an expert. So, if you practice a pose for 10,000 hrs with the intention of becoming an expert, at the end all you'll be is an expert--and probably not a very centered one.
Hope I never become an expert at these poses, never exchanging 10,000 hours of experiencing God (Tao, Brahman etc) for a fundamentally-disoriented expertise.
Same hope for you my beautiful friend. You're not a skill set. You're an absolutely unique appearance of the absolute. The quality of your poses will always be powerless to add or detract from that eternally beautiful truth ❤

Held my handstand today for 3 breaths without the wall! Wootwoot! Time I start moving away from it! Day 17 of #effectivehandstands is the tuck jump, where you use both legs at the same time to jump up. @omstarsofficial @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga
#YogaMamaTribe 🦄 #yogachallenge . Today's pose is the #lowlunge or #anjaneyasana . Little man said he would rather do a handstand. So handstand it is😜
Thanks to the amazing hosts: (in posting order)
