What is #YOGA ?
According to me....#YOGA is the movement of vital energy from outside to inside - from temptation to salvation.
#Temptation is #kaama or #desire and #Salvation is the state when one's mind and soul become completely unaffected from worldly affairs and expectations. Generally salvation is stated to #death but actually salvation is absolute #purity when living life. After death nothing is possible if remains something, is only #dissolution .
By #YOGA we can build and sanctity our #body and #soul so that at the time of death our mind and soul could not be distracted by affection and infatuation of the worldly life.
It is only possible by the attainment of enlightenment which can be Acquired by knowing one's #divinity .
only one way, yes, that is #YOGA which takes us to the way of #divinity .
#YOGI is the one who is always unaffected from impressions of organs of action and senses.
Who is always equable whatever circumstances may be hot or cold; pleasure or pain; whose mental caprices are always calm this sort of man of liberation.. is known as real #YOGI .
Over eating, fasting oversleeping or vigilance are not the characteristics of a #Yogi .
#RealYogi is one who properly eats, sleeps and performs his actions being unaffected by physical exertions and expectations. ******************************
Try to become a #REAL_YOGI
My Funny Valentine(s)
How many nights did I waste
in dissolution, looking for solace
or a temporary cure in the bottle or
a stranger's bed? Or both?
We look to the quick fix sometimes
not because we don't want to
make the long, slow repairs but because
let's face it
some momentary distraction or
what passes for fun can be
a form of mercy for the weary,
worn, tattered and torn
the ragtag hearts in search
for just a tiny respite
before we get back to the exhausting
work of digging, exhuming,
recreating the crime scenes we have
wreaked upon ourselves
and now regret that we did harm.
Lessons we try to learn so next time
we do better but chances are
we'll fall down again and give
or gain another bruise.
Hearts more black and blue
than blood red or shiny
Valentine's Day pink
but still beating true
no matter the mistakes
along the way.

Now I can only imagine
the dissolution of the sun
in wild waters.
Ora io riesco solo ad immaginare
la dissoluzione del sole
in acque turbolenti.

Day 12 of #ourpoetryjourneyjan18 , a piece containing the #word#dissolution .
S O U L M A T E • Day 12 of #ourpoetryjourneyjan18 with #dissolution This is for my most wonderful friend @heatasaurus. Today marks the final day in 18 months of hell for me & that girl was with me from the first seconds of it (0430am to be exact) & she has not left my side since that moment. It’s a funny thing when you have someone like that in your life & I got to thinking about how she managed to be in mine. She was the uni girlfriend of my boyfriend’s best friend. He had ended a long term relationship with one of my good friends to start dating Nix...can you see the beginning of the obstacles for us to actually be friends?! Years later Nix ended her relationship with him which really cut deep...as couples we were a little foursome & the circumstances really tested me; it seemed inevitable that our friendship would slip to the wayside with my perceived “allegiance” not with her. But I clearly remember thinking that I had a decision to make I either fought for our friendship or I let it slip away...I chose to fight, to keep her in my life despite background noise about it. My intuition knew then that I would need her...it’s quite overwhelming to know as far back as then I was putting in place my soul family who would guide me through. Today we are eating lots of Italian & drinking champagne together to celebrate our achievement...I’m here, I’m stronger & we have so much more love to share with each other-to the future my friend 🧡🥂 🧡 tagging 3 to join in @lecosymittens @e.e.crow @elfofelbrookcourt • #lanamaeve#typewriterpoetry#soulsister#forareason#gratitude
